Hit the Bull's Eye More Often Than Men Do
Chicago, April 8 - Police Women of Chicago can shoot straighter and can hit the bull's eye more often than Chicago policemen, according to a report today from the police school of instruction. Twelve police women made a revolver shot average of 88.43 per cent.
"Chicago police women are better marksmen than the men." said M. L. C. Funkhouser, second deputy police superintendent. "Twelve policemen taken from the ranks, not the experts, but the average patrolmen cannot make a better record than the women did."
One of the police women, Marie Crot, made a record of 96 per cent, and nine out of the twelve were returned as "expert' shots with average of 84 per cent each or higher."
