SUNDAY, MARCH 4, 1945 SPORTS TRI-STATE BINDING U/> thfo .'. MLtcv STEM dwellers get so used to traffic 1 and other nocturnal noises iJiat they can't sleep .when they go w the country, because it's too quiet. A, one visitor to the rural regions it: "Tlie silence Is deafening; In railroad towns certain have their -value, and the 'ootiiiB oi the trains passing through ptfi Bin Ihe early morning hours serve Js alarm 'clocks to arouse some citizens who have to go to work. Ee:n-pcji here and Elkins, some miss the Western Maryland ay passenger train since It was ^•continued last 1 week. For ex- eir.ple. a Westernport school teacher tells this true tale: -As usual, I asked the reason for i child's absence /rom school yes- teiday. Alter a great deal-of stam- ir.cring, she informed me that the i'jaiiiy has no alarm clock, and twy have been unable to get one. TUB iaiher ^ i n 'he Navy anji Vi;de Sain pjls him up at the right lane, while Mom has for some months depended upon'the Western .Maryland train awakening her as it pisses through town. The train didn't run yesterday, so Mom. 'slept ir. and the whole family enjoyed a half'holiday."
