Gepperfc, editor of the [Cumberland News, was re-elected Ifhiurman of the Chesapeake Asso- l«Mion of the Associated Press at two-day meeting which, concluded |last night with a dinner nt the Lord Baltimore Hotel, Baltimore. J. M. Willis, vice-president and feneral manager of the Bethlehem- Fiirfield Shipyard, addressed the ipproximately 50 association members. The group toured the Baltimore ir.d Ohio Railroad Mt. Clar« repair Jard and the Bendix, Aviation Corporation's radio and Friez Instrument divisions today. Other officers are: Oscar T. Mor- Salisbury (Md.) Times, vice- Irman; and William O. Varn, ef of the Baltimore AP bureau, Completion of the Savage river dam was given first priority in a list of desired river improvements ac the :wo-day conference of the Interstate ommission on the Potomac River Basin concluded at the Herrington Manor Recreational Area, near Oakland, yesterday. Action on the dam recommended ijy the planning committee Friday and the proposal was adopted by the executive committe-i yesterday. It was decided that completion of the dam offered the greatest possibility of bringing immediate results as far as river improvement Is concerned as it is already 75 per cent finished. Local Men Assist . Members of the planning group included I. Alvin Pasarew, Baltimore, executive .director, Maryland State planning Commission; Dr. C. R. Orton, Morgantown, chairman of the West Virginia Planning Board; E. A. Schmidt, Washington, of the. district office ol the Army engineers; George i 1 . Hazelwood, Cumberland, executive board member; Harold W. Smith, Cumberland Municipal -Planning Commission secretary; and Owen E. Hitchlns, Cumberland, treasurer of the Upper Potomac River Commission. It was also proposed that th« commission: 1. Further flood control projects involving water storage, qt * contribution toward mitigation of pollution difficulties through stream regulation. 2. Continue efforts to obtain funds from, public, private and aemi- privata. sources to mafce possible research for recovery and treatment of pollution. 3: Recognize the importance of the proper use of land in the control of pollution problems. 4. Support the adoption of the State Department of Health's program concerning the setting up of sanitary districts, urging the extension of such a program to cover the other states in the Potomac river basin. Cotton Backs Dam E. R. Cotton, Washington, engineer secretary of the commission said that the completion of the Savage River dam was considered of prime importance in the over-all situation. The commission has been handicapped by lack of funds and inasmuch as the War Production Board decided that none of the by-products would contribute to the war effort it has not approved the granting of federal funds for pollution research. Individual industries are urged to continue their research efforts and it is hoped that a wider program can be developed. Cotton explained "you can't tell industry to keep waste out of rivers unless you show it how" and make it economically sound. It was also explained that federal pollution laws are expected to be strengthened in time. Much of the discussion pertained to the pollution problem in Allegany county. Council Meetings Tomorrow A tour of the Savage River State Forest, the Savage River Dam and the Upper Potomac river completed the conference and commission members along with members of the Maryland Legislative Council, who attended the sessions, arrived in Cumberland late yesterday afternoon. The legislative council plans an informal inspection trip of various Allegany county points today and tomorrow will have a full day of i conferences. Senator Robert B. Kimble and Delegate J. Milton Dick, Uiis county, are members of the council. The Mayor and Council of Cumberland will be host at breakfast at the Central YMCA at 8:30 a. m. A meeting sponsored by the Allegany County Commissioners will start at the "Y" at 10:30 and luncheon by the commissioners is scheduled for noon. A mine will be visited at Eckhart in the afternoon and at 6 p. m., the Republican Club of Lonaconing will be host at dinner at the Knights of Pythias hall, Lonaconing.

Gen. Mark W. Clark's Fifth Army units which smashed the Hitler and Gustav lines and chased the Nazis from the Garigliano to the Arno river in Italy. The outfit is known as the "Kraut- Killers." Part of the 88th Division, first Selective Service • division to • enter combat, the 349th Regiment piled up a total of 95 miles gained In. 46 days of actual combat during the Fifth Army sweep up the Italian peninsula.

J. Glenn Beall, Frostburg, to the House of Representatives, opened officially Friday night with a rally in the Lyric theatre.) Frostburg. The meeting, arranged! by the Republican State Central' Committee of Allegany County, and attended by nearly 400 Republicans, also marked the sixth . anniversary of the Young Men's Republican Club of Frostburg.

Kight, son of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Kight, and husband of Mrs. Mar- Jorie V. Kight, 311 Decatur street, tells about the operation of these trains, many of which go through Cumberland almost daily, and what the wounded veterans think about. An interview with Cpl: Kight, as reported by Raymond B. O'Rourke, reveals that the question uppermost in the minds of all wounded men is: ."How soon will I get home?" Thfi Army realizes that' "home" is the best medicine in the world for a man who has suffered the wounds and horrors of combat, and hospital trains arc routed, for the most part, to hospitals in the general locality in which their occupants "liverThUs are the casualties, some of whom may be hospitalized for a long time for medical treatment, operations, or just. "R good rest," afforded the pleasure of visits from relatives and friends. Everything: for Patients "Everything in the make-up of a hospital train," says Cpl. Kight, "is directed toward the comfort and welfare of the patients. My first assignment was aboard a train leaving San Francisco for New York and Pennsylvania, although our unit, with two cars in its charge, went only as far as Winter General Hospitai, Topeka, Kaasas. The train consisted of five Pullmans, three Army Ward Cars, a kitchen car and a baggage car. A special car for the use of the Medical Corps personnel is sometimes attached to such trains, but as a rule the medics live in the cars with the patients, for the obvitnts reason that they will be on the spot if needed.

The progress ol education Is shown by the fact that in 1890 there was one high school graduate for each 3,700 persons and in 1940 there was one graduate for each 114 persons * Of these 13,116 graduates, 6,759 or more than half, have finished at four Cumberland high schools.
