1962 Trailblazers Motorcycle Fraternity Annual Banquet Photo Article

The Trailblazers organization was founded in 1938 by the late A.F. Van Order, who was an enthusiastic motorcycle rider, salesman and dealer during his long association with the motorcycle fraternity. Nearly 200 motorcycle old timers and other motorcycle enthusiasts, some with their wives or girl friends, attended the 25th annual banquet that was held at the Elks Club in Los Angeles on Saturday night, March 24. The crowd was larger than in any previous year – possibly due to the fact that many famous personalities attended, one of whom was former Los Angeles County Sheriff, Gene Biscailuz, who was in charge of the Los Angeles County Motorcycle Squad, which became the California Highway Patrol….

…Many of the old timers present had a smile on their faces when they read the menu, which was as follows:

Salad a la Flying Merkel
Roast Chicken, Excelsior “Big Valve” Style
Potatoes, Harley-Davidson Browned
Rolls with Thor Butter
Coffee with Henderson Cream
Desert with Indian Topping

1962 Dogs on Motorcycles to Deter Criminals

Small 1-Paragraph article with photo.

Photo caption: Shown with patrolman and his new canine partner are Superintendent Maloney and Director Dillon.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Police are getting ready to unleash a new weapon, the motorcycle dog against burglars, muggers and purse snatchers. Ten new motorcycles, four of them equipped with K-9 carriers have been assigned to beat patrolmen who formerly worked on foot. The officers will cruise through residential districts where foot patrols are ineffective. The motorcycles are superior to patrol cars because they can slip into narrow alleys or cut through wooded areas…

…Motorcycle patrolmen will cruise at 15 miles an hour or less, jumping from the cycles or unleashing the dogs when necessary.
