John J. DelNegro, playground director, said this is a drop of 774 from last year when the total was 3(3,437. But he noted that there were two full days of rain and Concrete Foundations NEW DURAFORM SYSTEM Better! CM W. L. BOLT MO 3-5640 FREE ESTIMATES three half days of rain this year compared with four halt days last year, a weather debit that could account for the drop. The playground season ended at 4 p.m. when the weary supervisors fll the eight playgrounds sent their young charges home — and probably breathed deep sighs of relief. But then they went to work dismantling and moving into storage the games and play equipment like baseballs and nets. Swings, chutes, teeters and merry-go-rounds were left up for youngsters to use until school starts. Mr. DelNegro said h« would present a review of the season and a rating of the 16 supervisors to the Park and Recreation Commission at a meeting soon when the planning for next season also will start. The Freeman playground had the top total attendance for the season with 5,030 recorded. Mark Hopkins was second with 4,983. The others followed in this order: Johnson, 4,620, Noel Field 4,558, Brayton 4,474, Greyiock 4,200, Houghton 3,900 and Blackinton 3,757. For All Your Cleaning Needs Call the Specialists TIME TO SEND THOSE BACK-TO-SCHOOL CLOTHES Petri's 329 S tale Rd. MO 2-2415 Also Office at 50'/2 AihUnd Street Home Furnished For Fire Losers Except for Dresser One dresser — that's al! that's needed now to get a West End family whose home was burned out last week, firmly established in a new apartment. David Dickey, Red Cross disaster chairman, said quick public response to two appeals on behalf of the Ronald Ellsworth family, has supplied all Us other needs. Mr. and Mrs. Ellsworth end their two daughters, Barbara, 13, and Deborah, 7, lost their household furnishings and nearly all their personal belongings wlien flames from a defective kitchen oil burner swept through their apartment in a three-tenement block at 137-141 Protection Ave. Aug. 13. The Ellsworths found temporary shelter with relatives in Williamstown but within a few days had located a suitable new apartment. Mr. Dickey's first appeal for community assistance in helping them furnish il brought in nearly all the articles they needed. But day before yesterday he said they were still short two dressers, odd chairs and a studio couch for the living room. Today, they had all except the dresser. Mr. Dickey said the response to his apjwal through the Red Cross for the family had been most generous, and that most of the items offered were found to be in excellent usable condition.

CORNELL ,l.v credited with deepening under- Associated Press Religion Writer standing of Christ's teachings, and ~^ , u i /-. j iu iii. • i- aiding in their application. Thanks be to God, the Christian * scholar said, for the blessings bestowed on the faith by those two atheists, Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud. It may sound strange for the world's two most noted disbelievers to be cited as sources of value to religion. Yet among many theologians and philosophers, the thesis often is expressed. Stimuli Insights They maintain that Marx, Religion In the New* Freud, Marx Give Stimuli, Insights to Christianity founder of communism, and Freud, founder of psyclioanalysis, have contributed stimuli and insights to Judeo-Chrislianity that were neglected. A long-standing church concept holds that God frequently mny work through anlireligious forces and individuals to correct, lead and strengthen the church. It was at the Anglican World Congress in Toronto, Canada, this month that a British churchman, Canon Max Warren, stressed that divine guidance may come from outside the Christian fold—from other religions, science, and even atheists. Christian concern for social righteousness "owes not a little, under God, to the stimulus of Karl Marx," he said. •. Light of Psychiatry He said the church also owes thanks to God "for His grace at work in Sigmund Freud," bringing the light of psychiatry to bear on the healing of men's spirits—their personalities. Both Marx and Freud spurned religion as wishful thinking. Marx saw it as a kind of mass tranquilizer to obscure the exploits tion of common people. Frued considered it a kind of ob- sessional neurosis, brought on by desire for paradise beyond the difficulties and death of earthly existence. Nevertheless, the psychoanalytic procedures he developed are wide- Freud's Approach Theologian Paul Tillich says Jiat Freud's approach of accept- ng, rather than condemning, the guilt-ridden was the very heart of Christ's gospel of forgiveness—the 'acceptance of the unacceptable." As for Marx, the idea of ties between his influence and Christianity is a matter of frequent analysis in academic circles. In the current issue of Jubilee, a national Roman Catholic monthly, British Catholic philosopher R. C. Znehner says that "Marxism is not old enough yet to realize that it has no essential quarrel with religion." House Members Voted On Foreign Aid Cut WASHINGTON (AP) - In the vote yesterday by which the House cut about $585 million irom the administration's foreign aid bill, New England congressmen voted as follows: Republicans for: Bates of Mass., Cleveland ol N.H,, Melntyre of Maine, Sibal of Conn., Stafford of VI., Tupper of Maine, Wyman of N,H. Democrats against: Boland of Mass,, Burke of Mass Daddario of Conn., Donohue of Mass., Giaimo of Conn., Grabowski of Conn., Macdonalci of Mass., Monagan of Conn., St. German of R.I.. St. Onge of Conn. Republicans against: Conte of Mass., Martin of Mass., Morse of Mass. Six House members, including Republican Keith of Mass., were recorded for but did not actually vote. William H. Harrison, who dieti of pneumonia one month after his inauguration, had the shortest term of any elected U. S. President. Reject Proposal To Check Imports Of Foreign Shoes WASHINGTON (AP) — An informal House committee representing shoe manufacturing states has rejected Christian A. Herter's suggestion that the industry seek relief from import competition through the tariff commission. Reps. James A. Burke, D-Mnss., and William H. Bates, R-Mass., co-chairmen of the committee, said yesterday the industry wants President Kennedy to negotiate voluntary shoe import quotas with foreign countries similar to the long-term cotton textile agreement, Replying to a. letter from 250 House members which asked President Kennedy on May 20. to restrict imports, Herter noted shoe imports could not qualify for the same treatment under the Agricultural Act of 1956 as did the cotton agreement. The special presidential assistant for Trade Negotiations said President Kennedy could negotiate quota agreement sunder the Trade Expansion Act, but first the Tarifi CommUson must determine that imports have injured the domestic industry. Burke and Bates said in a joint reply that could not agree with Herter's conclusion. They said the industry "Does not wish to follow this suggested route at the present time," They also said it was virtually impossible to get a determination of injury from the commission because of product classification definitions. Damage Put at $400 In Brown St. Crash Cars driven by Edward Marlell, 61, of 25 Millard Ave., Clarksburg and Jesse J. Hanish, 51, of New York City received approximately $400 total damage when they collided on Brown St, near the Sprogue Electric Co. plant yesterday afternoon. Police said there were no injuries. vtcCann School Gets Bids From Two On Basketball Gear Bids for outfitting the McCann School's first basketball team were opened yesterday. Center Sporting Goods Inc. ol North Adams and James Campion Inc., Hanover, N.H., submit- .ed quotations on portions of the needed equipment. Center Sports bid $1,118.85 and Campion $317.60. The bids will be considered at the regional vocational school committee's September meeting. Michigan's Huge Deficit Slashed Astonishing 73% LANSING, Mich. (AP> — Michigan, the state whose name has been synonmous in recent years •with financial chaos in government, has managed a hard-lo-believe 73 per cent reduction in its whopping deficit in a single year, This conceivably could give Republican Gov. George Romney, who talked fiscal integrity in his campaign last year, a boost if he decides to run for re-election in 1964. At the same time, It throws a shadow of uncertainty over the governor's next project — overhaul and reform of the stale's tax structure. Controller Glenn Allen Jr. released nearly-final figures sliow- ing Michigsn's general fund deficit, which stood at $85.f! million on June 30, 1X2, has been cut to ?23 million os of June 30 this year. Alien predicts, If the economy continues to boom, (be red ink can be cut to $5 million a year hence. He says this will require another banner year for the auto industry. Available Men Outnumber Girls in Alaska, Bachelors Said Increasing NEW YORK - Alaska ii the place where men at the highly marriageable ages of 18 to 29 out- I more than four to one the fair sex aged 16 to 24, according to life insurance company statisticians. they say that girls will have about 24 million unattached men to choose from. Some helpful finer points are that 68 per cent of the current crop of single men live in urban areas. Fully 31 per cent of the country's unmarried men live In On the other hand, If you're a New York, California, Permsyl- man hankering to get married, your best bet — again statistically — is to try Utah or West Virginia, where females dominate . . numerically. What may be good news to the single girls is that the number of a short time ago, once again is steadily increasing. By the end of next year, the statisticians say, there will be more than 19 million single fellows in the country, and if you're able to wait until 1975, vania and Illinois, the statistician! report. Altogether, available men at ages 18-29 outnumber bachelor girls at ages 16-24 in 31 states and the District of Columbia. A young woman in that age group, who bachelor boys, on the downgrade plaas to track down a mate, might well spend some time in Hawaii, where the young available men predominate 176 to 100. Nevada is rot bad, either, at 140 to 100. But that's all according to statistics. Ghosts are still considered to roam many historic castles, churches and homes in Britain.
