By David Sinclair a delegation of five main Street merchants appeared be fore the Winnipeg police com Mission wednesday to complain that an area along main Street where they have their Busin esses is rotting and will soon be like a bowery if preventative police Protection and ser vice in t supplied after hearing the groups sub Mission commission members agreed that it might be a Good idea for some of them to take a first hand tour of the area in police Cruiser cars before the next meeting of the commis Sion.

Dojack said that this list of grievances adequately out lined the problem in the area and that if More police Man Power or some better solution could t be supplied then the merchants were going to lose their business altogether. The reason or Dojack sup plied to the commission for the trouble in the area was there Are too Many Beer Parlours and Pool Halls in this one area As Well As it being infested with transients. In one Block alone on main Street there Are eight Beer Par lors and three Pool Halls. These places Are regular hangouts for transients who Are forever staggering out into the streets and causing or.

Or. Groff suggested that the police split up and two walk on each Side of the Street. Prof. Ruben c. Bellan an other member of the commis Sion suggested that since the problem seems to be one of a major social problem in Winnipeg the matter should also be referred to the City welfare committee for further after a comment by a delegation member about More Light ing might Stop the mayor Juba also suggested that the commission members Check out the lighting in the area and see if it could be improved. Acting police chief Constable John c. Webster said that he would give the four Man beat idea a tryout on the weekend and report Back to the commis Sion at its next meeting in two weeks.
