Note enclosed in sleeve: The San Jose police force took their hats off to their only woman member, Loreen Caten, today when she beat them at their own game and came in from the pistol range with top score. Mrs. Caten, young and good-looking, scored ten out of ten shots from a police special 38 revolver in the target. At 15 feet, nine of her consecutive shots were inside the bullseye and the tenth struck the six inch target. Police instructor Sergeant W.E. Brown said that Mrs. Caten topped a detail of 10 officers, her closest competitor scoring eight out of ten shots. "Beginner's luck," she laughed, but the men of the department claim it's more than that. Mrs. Caten had hunted with a rifle before joining the police force a year ago. She said she learned to shoot a revolver at San Jose State College (SJSU) police training school which she attended. She is a "south paw" but says she finds that no handicap.
