"While you are reading this page somebody's home or business is being entered by burglars. There's about one burglary a minute. You might think that it is the fault of the police, but the truth of the matter is that if a burglar gets into your home it may be due to your own carlessness. Your Police Department is ready and anxious to help you in any emergency, but it alone cannot prevent all the crimes. We have to help ourselves, and thereby help the police do a better job."
Good Reading Rack Service, 1956
