ROCHESTER DEMOCRAT AND CHRONICLE, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1944 17 REFUGEES BEAR August Rains Averted Milk Lack, Aide Says MARKS OF WAR AT FT. ONTARIO i Continued from Vag Thirteen gpeaks live languages fluently. Discovered by the invading Americans in Italy, he was adopted by a detachment of Engineers and used as an interpreter among Italian labor gangs. He proudly wenis nn American Army uniform, without Insignia, which the Engineers gave him, and he refuses to change it even for civilian clothing eupplied by the camp. 4 Main Nationalities Four nationalities compile the majority of the camp personnel, Joseph H. Smart, director, reported. They are' lemitm, Polish, Yugoslav and Austrian. In addition, you can find in the tamps natives of Greece, Romania, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Turkey and Spain. A variety of religions also are noted, with Jewish predominant.- All signed agreements that they would return to their native -lands soon as possible after cessation of hostilities, Smart explained. The camp is run as closely along democratic lines as possible. Smart end bis aides , are in charge and the final authority, but the residents ere permitted to participate in camp affairs through a camp personnel. That is composed of 10 members, two representing each of the major nationalities and two representing all the smaller national groups. All policy affecting the relations of the camp and the outside world is directed by Washington and executed by Smart. Appear Happy Refugees appear quite happy on the former, and historic, Army reservation. They and the staff utilize most of the" 30-odd buildings. The staff lives in the former of ficers' row of red brick structures nd the refugees occupy one-time troop barracks. The wooden lmrrack are two-totv structure with door at each end and "having Insidfl and outnide stairways. Each family usiit. has its own accommodations, consisting of one, two, or more rooms, depending on the size of the family. Each couple has a small living room in addition to the bedroom that Is of I adequate size. Each barracks contains bathing and toilet facilities for men and women. The burden of keeping the living room clean rests with the occupants and the tank in not lightly taken. All meabi are eaten in the mens halls, A recreational ball and a theater, in addition to hospital quarters, are available. Soon an all-refugee cast will present "Midsummer Night's Dream" in the theater. CIoe Co-Operation Close co-operation with residents of Oswego has been effected. Provision for the 168 school age children to attend city insitution has been made by a citizens committee in Oswego. The city committee also established a rumor committee to sift the multitudinous rumors ebout the camp and to publish the rumors and the true conditions. Brief operation of the rumor committee has greatly improved camp and outside relations, it was reported by Allen Markley, public relations officer. Complete freedom of movement within the confines of the huge ump is provided the refugees. They follow a strict schedule of meals and are assigned to various camp duties, but otherwise are left to themselves. The government-provided meals "is re substantial and no complaints on that score were heard or intimated. Kitchens and mess halls originally were operated by a civilian staff, but gradually refugees took them over. Smart reported. Now refugee participation is high and satisfactory. The personnel of the refugees Includes a number of clergymen, physicians, doctors of philosophy, artists, and onetime leading business men and women. Art Colony The art colony recently staged a public exhibition that won wide admiration. Chief among the exhibitors was aged Hermann Bruck of Germany, whose watercolors of Italian scenes, were brilliant as gems. Siegfried Kuttner, a pipe-emoking German stage designer, arranged the show, which also featured some brilliant sketches by Miriam Sommerburg, a Hamburg resident; Vladmer Zabutin, a Russian with modernistic leanings, and Luba Chernilza. a Russian sculptress who studied at the Royal Academy in Rome. Bruck, a stocky old man with weather-beaten face and a keen eye for beauty, presents one of the oddest cases in camp. His life is his painting and today he is without coloring materials. Shorn of paints and colors, brushes and pallet, he gazes sadly at Iike Ontario in its days of richest color, frustrated in his desire to capture permanently the scene. Bruck also is lacking in eye-glasses; and his eyes are so bad that when he seeks to sketch his head nearly touches the paper. After 10 years of privation, he finally achieved liberation of body, but not of mind. Apple Pickers Due for Calls . Calls for apple pickers are beginning to come into the U. S. Employment Service, while lack of women workers continues to be the bottleneck in area canneries, it was reported yesterday. Three hundred more women and about 100 additional men are needed for food processing work today, according to JaVnes T. Baldwin, farm placement manager. Baldwin ?,aid 56 Jamajcans had arrived at fhe farm labor camp in Powder Mill Park for farm work in the vicinity of Pittsford, Webster and Fairport. Farmers in that area, who are obtaining the West Indies laborers for the second year, now , are using them for tomato and fruit picking and later will employ them in harvest of root crop. You give your blood. Now give the paper to make the container The rains that broke the drouth in mid-August also came in time to avert a milk shortage, production figures for last month showed yesterday. Robert J. Lemmon, executive of ficer of the Rochester Milk Marketing Area, reported that the total production for last month was 15,- 304,138 pounds of all kinds, which was 568 pounds lower than output for the same month a year ago. The average production per farm per day in August was 318 pounds against 321 pounds for August, 1043. Shortage Averted Lemmon said there was a. big slump in milk production in mid- August as a result of the drouth, and added if the hot and dry spell had continued three days longer, there would have been a shortage. Figure.,! at hand yesterday did not show just how low the daily production average per farm had been fallen in mid-August but theywere well below the 318 pound average for the month, Lemmon pointed out. Rains toward the end of August were sufficient to wet down pas turage and break the mevere heat, with the result that milk produc tion was increased on the farms. Farmers agreed, in talks with Lemmon, that the heat had curtailed production by upsetting the cows "just as it does human beings." And on top of that it dried out the grass, reducing the food supply, for the herds. Until the hot and dry spe!l hit this area there were indications that production for the month would surpass the August, 1943, figures, Lemmon declared. Commercial Receipts" Up Throughout the state August commercial milk production ex ceeded the same 1943 month by threg million pound despite the sharp drop in pasturage due to the drouth, the New York Agricultural Statistical Service reported. The commercial receipts at plants in August totaled 562,000,000 pounds compared to 559,000,000 pounds In August, 1943. The receipt through out the state declined 98,000,000 pounds, however, from July of 1944 The state statistical service re- ported concentrate feeding on Sept. 1 was the highest for this date since records became available in 1931 Many dairymen were feeding hay, com and other forage at winter rates, thus depleting supplies in tended for later use. Tutty Renamed State Legion Aide Charles B. Tutty Jr., of 220 Rut-1 gers St., Monroe County probation officer, yesterday received notification from Leo V. L'inning, state commander of the American Legion of hia appointment to a fourth term as department sergeant-at-arms.
