Mental Arithmetic Calms Nervous Fathers-To-Be BY LEO SOROKA SCHENECTADY, N. Y. (UP) — You'd never guess how men pass away the hours In this hospital's maternity waiting room tor husbands. Usually the tarjjct- of jokcsters, the fnthcis-to-be find a haven nt Ellis hospital's maternity wailing room; where they sit for hours counting the .perforations in the acoustical ceiling which wns designed to deaden sound. The waiting room was constructed especially to keep them from pacing hospital corridors pestering nurses for Ihe information of their wives' progress. Now the tnthers-to-be have their ' own waiting room in which was were a little nervous." I'erlmiis They're Ni'rvnus Still another man terminated lie count argument thus: You are both nervous. It's 19,05." But not nil bothered lo count he* perforations. One man wrote: "Listen, fellows, this waiting Is cally not as bad as you hear. I've Jeen waiting for 22 hours nnd I'm ool as n cucumber. Not n hit ncr- ! ous." Yet directly underneath the statement the man added: "Pardon Uic slinky handwriting:-" Father Enters Happy Noli! One man, informed that he was the father ot n baby girl, happily entered the following note: placed iv .loose-leaf notebook used 1>\ the husbands to record theii thoughts or the results of theii perforation counting. None Agrees on Count The men can't seem lo agree or Ihe count, however, recording between 34,350 and 151,492 perforations in the celing. The first mathematically inclined husband wrote: "For the .informalion of all con corned there arc 151,492 holes li the outer hall ceiling leading t labor and delivery room. Aivyon in doubt, please check. This smnl job was part of what t did In 3 hours of waiting." The same man added that them are 1,262 holes in the ceiling over the desk and 8,(H8 over the dumbwaiter, "All these totals exclude space covered by lighting fixtures and make a grand total of 1(10,802," he wrote. The recording following the first entry doubted'the first count. "There are 34.350 little holes in the ceiling. Including those covered by the fixtures." The third entry said: "Try gain. There' .ire 79,080 holes in the celing. 7u:\ybc you "My loving wife lias a baby giv and I believe she Is.the finest litlli girl in the world.-1 iiope lhat, SOUK day In flic near future she will b nbtc to help me'as a secretary ii my ollice," The next, slnlemcnl. replied lo I Ihe previous writing thus: "P.

Uy FUEI) UAII.KY Unilcil Press MaJt Correspondent WASHINGTON—A vibrant Amerca in SOUK—from ."Casey Jones" A Tiskcl, a Titskcl"— is being •ccoi'ded for future generations in lie arcliives of the Library of Congress. The collection ot songs and music •tins the gamut from John Wesley's religious hymns to "Frankie and. Johnnie," and its many variations. The "Frankie and Johnnie" collection Is one of the most remarkable. Frankie has been Josie, Sadie, Lillie, Annie, and in the Buhumas, Delia. Her mnn always "done her wrong' 'and she always bumped hitn off in Ihe end. Her Fate Is Varied But her fate has been varied. She went lo the electric chnir swung from the gallows, and even donned a ball and chain and joineil a chain sang. She lias paid u hundred- penalties for her scorned love The songs reflect n vigorous, lus- ly, growing America. Cowboys, soldiers, sailors, lumberjacks, miners; railroad men, laborers, preachers,' negroes ami others all have contributed to the rich store of national folk songs. Mosl popular of the cowboy songs that still are -sung include "Gel Along, Little Dogics" and "O Bury Me Not On the Lone Priiiric." "Casey Jones" is the favorite railroad song and "John Henry" the No. 1 work song. The quick popularity among sol- APR1L 25th THIU MAY 4th, 1940 dlers of "Mademoiselle From Ar neiitieres" that swept through the VE.F. has not died out. One in-, lusti'ious collector has 500 stanzas >f the soldier's delight. The negro spiritual lias contributed a vital factor in American iolk music. Negro slaves from Africa took the hymns of their masters ind adapted them lo their own use In "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," 'Let My People Go" and other great spirituals. Child's Games Represented Another type folk song, (lie child's games, lias supplied many of the jwpular tunes.

His brilliant mind and his lerrific labor produced the, incandescent tamp, one. of the mosl revolutionary inventions in history. We in tlie electric service business like, lo think we are following, in sonic small way, the principles ot this gre.il man. .U least this much is true: there is no law responsible' for the fine work of the employees of this company. There is no law thai moves scientists, engineers, linemen, managers, office workers and many others to do mticb more, each day, than is expected of them. Day in ami day out, (hey do tlicir level best to serve you—ami always they are busy, planning how to improve our service anil increase its use- fitln«f,'j lo you. U't believe these people have every rtghl lo lie proud of the great job they have, tionc. Vel they are tlie very ones who realize, bel lor llian anyone, else, that our service lo you is not perfect. Their constant effort underlies everv scrvieo improvement and every rate reduction ibis company has ever been able to «ive you, and every one that will he madis in the future. No'law did this except Ihe, great unwritten law of America—lo make a good product or render a good service, to sell it" itl a reasonable profit and lo depend on (lie public's sense of value anil fair play. We follow this principle. We constantly make a good thing belter, constantly distribute it lo more people at less cost.That is the American way,',lo which every cm- plovee of this company is dedicated.
