Philadelphia July 22. The Quaker
City's "School for Coppers" today is
in full swing and every day for the
next four weeks one hundred and sev-
enteen prospective Philadelphia po-
licemen will theoretically tuck their
books under their arms and attend
the first grade. And those grown men
aitend school just like they did when
they were kids. They are supposed
to be in) the school room at 9 o'clock.
They get an hour recess for lunch and
then go back to the grind until 4 30
at which hour "school" leH out. And
the court of police A B C's which these
men are put through Is not by any
means play. When they pass the
course they are privileged to put an
M. C. after their names. The M. C.
stands for "Master of Copology." The
regular course is four weeks long.
The new "School for Coppers" is
Director of Public Safety Porter's lat-
