the police department. If council
desires investigation of the police
department why object to the regu-
larly constituted police committee?

With this in mind I have requested
the Chamber of Commerce,

the Chamber of Industry and the Federated Churches to each name a representative to act with two members of the city council of opposite political faith as a committee to investigate the department.

In my judgment every member of the police force is striving to do his full duty. Unfortunately the force is entirely too small, especially in these serious times. This is another way in which all large cities of Ohio are being handicapped by state laws governing city finances. Every city of any size has an underworld that has to be constantly watched and repressed. To do So successfully requires an adequate number of policemen

I desire to say further that if the investigation discloses that any official has been guilty of interference with the efficiency of the police department he will be placed under charges and dismissed from the service.

Respectfully,
HARRY L. DAVIS,

Mayor.
Received and laid over for one
Week,
