DESCRIBE HIM: Loren Squires, for many years a state highway patrolman and now a Utah state representative from LaVerkin, Washington County, was reminiscing.about his old Highway Patrol days the other evening. He said one of the funniest Incidents of his career occurred several years ago when the radio in his patrol car blared out:

"PICK UP and hold for suspicion, of burglary, a white, male, American, age about 25, About five feet, 10 inches tall dark hair, blue eyes—he walks around with a stoop." To which Officer Squires answered the radio operator: "Please describe the stoop this man is walking around with."
