BILLINGS COUNTY PIONEER Law Officers Advised to Improve Image Law enforcement agencies could do their work more effic- iently with increased public con- fidence ,Asst. U. S. Atty. Gor- don Thompson of Fargo told some 70 enforcement officers who attended the first meeting of the North Central Crime Con- terence recently in Minot. Thompson blamed television and movies for giving the public a false picture of law officers. He urged that policemen pay more attention to ways of re- storing public confidence in law enforcement groups.

Chief Vredenburg said that be- ginning next year, it will be necessary to attend the confer- ence meeting to get copies ol the transcripts. But copies of this year's fact sheets may be obtained from him or from Police Chief Gordon Kern of Bismarck, conference secretary. The 1963 meeting will be in April or May in Aberdeen, S.

NWA Adding Three Fan-Jets Artist's conception of Boeing 707-320B aircraft, in Northwest Orient Airlines markings. North- west this week announced pur- chase of three of the long-range fan-jet aircraft, for delivery in June and July, 1963. Northwest officials said they decided to acquire additional 720B fan-jets for use in its do- mestic system because of the efficiency, reliability and pass- enger appeal its present 720B's have demonstrated since the air- line put them into service in July, 1961. "The 720B is by far best air- craft available today or in the forseeable future for use on do- mestic routes, as well as on such shorter overseas routes North- west's Seattle, Tacoma, Portland- Honolulu and Seatlc-Alaska op- erations," said Donald W. Nyrop, NWA president. Maximum range of the 707- 329B, with a 24,000-pound pay- load, will be 6,435 miles. Maximum cruising speed of the 707-320B's at route altitude will be 600 miles an hour, true air speed. They will accommodate from 100 all first-class to 188 all economy-class passengers. Northwest now operates nine 720B's, seven purchased and two leased from Boeing in 1961. Nyrop said the new contract with Boeing includes purchase of one of the 720B's previously under lease. Total purchase price of the 707-320B's, spare parts and the leased 720B on which Northwest has taken title will be $27,950,0.

He urged that the Ilag be display- ed before every home and busi- ness place on Flag Day. "The habits of apathy and complacency weaken the spirit of patriotism," the Elks' leader said.
