PhotographÂ was edited for publication purposes Officer C. B. Conrad examines a club taken from teenagers belonging to a car club, several more weapons are laid out on the desk in front of him. The photograph article dated August 1, 1962 partially reads, "Out in Foothill Division, analytical Officer James Waldron says there are about 250 car clubs in the Valley, and these are always splitting up, regrouping and adopting new names--making it difficult for police to keep track of them...Almost any police officer will tell you that the very large majority of car club members stay out of trouble, even to the point of becoming an asset to their communities. What about the minority? 'They're a large danger...The bulk of the troublemakers will have a weapon in the car with them,' he pointed out."
