Chief Wanwy said that there isn't
one call box in the whole city. He said
that there arc no bents, because the
shortage of men have made the systematic-

sible. There are onlv three officers, two
on beats and one on the desk, on duty
at night, Varney said. . - '
The men of the department are com
pelled to work 32 hours a day, and
much dissatisfaction because of this has
been voiced bv the men. They are call
ed to work at all hours without addi
tional pay, and the expectation that
some of the men may resign as a result
is held by Chief Varney.
The call box situation is held laugh-.
able. When an officer is compelled to

the present force would be unable-to

Pressure will be brought to bear on
the city council at the Monday night
meeting, it is said,' to remedy the situation.
