Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Sulurdoy, Seplember 4, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 9 in August EDMONTON (CP) If Ecl- montonians thought last month was one' of tlic hottest in mem- >ry, they wre right. The weather office reports it ,vas the warmest month in Iho ;ily in 91 years of keeping weather records. The mean temperature for :he month was G0.9 degrees, beating July I960 by .5 de- grees. The city enjoyed 318 hours of junshine in August, nearly 50 hours more than usual. ADOPTED SON Colleen Mills (right) and her hus- band, who have five children of their own, have adopt- ed 22-year-old Charles Cox, a former Job Corpsman, to save him from deportation fo British Honduras. Police morale lower than ever NEW YORK (AP) "God bless the sajd a patrol- man speaking of his boss. "Lis- ten, if he gets rid of the graft then I'm with him all Uie way." The praise was for Police Commissioner Patrick V. Mur- phy and his efforts lo end cor- ruption among the city's man police force, largest in North America. But another patrolman said: "Morale is lower than it's ever been." The mixed reaction comes as Murphy shakes up the police de- partment with charges that some members have taken as much as in single bribes from gamblers or narcotics dealers and thai leadership was lacking in the department's command and administrative echelons. Since Mayor John V. Lindsay appointed Mm to the sensitive post last Oct. 9 Murphy has de- moted, transferred and reorgan- ized his men at command lev- els. ACTIONS CRITICIZED His actions have been criti- cized by former police commis- sioner Howard R. Lcary as "star chamber allegations" against the police. In one move this week, he passed over 72 senior men lo appoint Inspector Donald F. Cawley as chief of patrol. Cawley, 42, was the youngest inspector and is the youngest man to have direct command of the department's un- iformed patrol force. Murphy ssid his policy is to "increase significantly1' the au- thority of his top commanders. In turn, he said "they will be held to greater accountability." He emphasized this Wednes- day by demoting one inspector because "he did not meet my and demoting As- sistant Chief Inspector Ijw- rence Flood, whom lie had ap- pointed only two months ago lo work full lime on inlcgrily con- trol within the department. Flood's demotion, Murphy said, "obviously rcflccls my dis- satisfaction." Retirement of two senior offi- cers also was announced, a day after the commissioner relieved six captains of commands in which policemen were deleclcd sleeping on the job. "My patience is he said. The son of Brooklyn police- man, the 51-year-old, grey haired commissioner began his career in the city department He rose through the ranks, lefl to become chief of the Syracuse N.Y., department and commis- sioner of Detroit's police before being summoned back by Lind say. His various moves have pro- voked several retire nients and intense discussion throughout the force. Bitterness over Murphy's at- tacks on "bad apples" arises against a background of a wave of deadly assaults on police offi- cers this year. When Murphy took office, he stepped into a city filled will charges of police corruption. Lindsay had four months ear- lier appointed the so-called Knapp Commission to investi- gate the charges. A final report is due later this month. Mr. Benson chuckles! KINGSTON, Out. (CP) Finance Minister Edgar Ben- son was unable to supress laughter Friday over his wife's "hassle" with the in- come fax department. "I understand it was a mis- Mr. Benson chuckeld. On Aug. 21 the revenue de- partment charged Marie Louise Benson in her capacity as trustee for the J. Mc- Dougall and Son Ltd. Pension Plan, with failing to file a T-3, 1070 information and income tax return. The foiTn was filed, though, and then apparently mis- placed. 50 Hie charge was withdrawn in provincial couil here Thursday at the request of the income tax department. While Mr. Benson took the incident with good humor, the boys in the income lax depart- ment apparently were a little more sensitive about it. A reporter was told by a na- tional revenue spokesman he-re the matter was "none of your business." Mrs. Benson unavaila- ble for comment.
