TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD-, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 8, 11MS l j hone 4GOO for a WANT AD Taker Merchants Urged To Aid Parking Must Find Off-Street Lots For Customers Merchants must begin doing their part in alleviating Cumberland's parking coneestion''by finding off- the-street parking places for customers, Lt. Sdwin B. Lilya, head of toe Police Department's Traffic Division, told the Cumberland Rotary Club at its meeting'yesterday In Central YMCA. Such a move, he said, will stop any attempt to de-centralize the business section caused by the congestion. Some think, Lt. Lilya said, that parking lots should be provided by the city.. However, the merchant would not be aided because clerks and employes would tend to fill up the spaces in the morning and remain, thcr all day. , . • He mentioned a proposal under which the city would take over, a lot on George Street using parking meters to defray the cost. However, nothing definite has been done about It yet, he added. The. time will come, Lt. Lilya said, when ^parking will have to be prohibited on all downtown streets. Already loading zones have-been established on -North Mechanic and Liberty Streets with another planned for North Centre Street. The traffic head told of measures taken by merchants in other cities. One city had a parking lot 10 blocks Jrom the shopping district with a shuttle service to and from the area. Some merchants give motorists tickets and, with the proved purchase of so much merchandise, pay -the monthly parking bilL Lilya cited Silver Spring as an •xample of .the growing trend tor . irartl decentralization of large towns »s traffic conditions become too crowded. Many . businesses have moved from more congested Wash- Ington, he said. " .! One Word Led To Another *** * * * *** Glad To Have Met You By ARTHUR "BUGS" BAER Metropolitan Opera of Manhattan perks up the hodiday term by plastering an injunction against Metropolitan Opera of Chicago. These two founts of related decides should get along lite harnessed mules. Instead they are picking their teeth at swords' points. Queen Victoria would not have liked that. New York Met wants Chicago to cancel the use of • the name. Instead of being two • polly uproars well met they are jealous old sopranos. Chicago testifies that it Is Just as metropolitan as New York. It says it had the first _ strip-tease! dancer with her laundry • mark tattooed on her epidermis. Chicago has everything' a. .'big city should have including things It shouldn't. Therefore, I pronounce Chicago a and city and Chicago is that outside of its baseball teams. Never is there such jealousy rampant • as between two stuffy old Impresarios equipped with letters of marqne and rehearsal. -When New York Met stages Carmen she lives the role. She even has a rose in her teeth on the night. When Chicago Met puts on the Barber-of Seville It adds an extra chair* to the usual five-chair shop. I knew., a -lot of baggy old divas who could juke up the premises. They screamed for help In two acts and a prologue. But If any other dame walked out on the stage they threw a .wing- ding, ' kicked up sand -bottom and resigned. In a . large body. But I never heard of an entire opera corn- metropolis in four syllables suburbs. It means principal FLORIDA ORANGES 8-lb. Bag 39' pany picketing another company's hangout. If the New York Met and the Chicago Met really want to improve their towns they will • merge and meet each other half-way. They can then sing .in Buffalo with only the roar of Niagara as competition. There can be no exclusive manipulation of the metropolitan title which includes laundry service, salt pretzels, tags and labels! button works, bag and paper, carpet beating, dish washing, burglar alarms, freight traffic, waffle irons and secondhand machinery. I know the Met Opera seems to be doing all these things at once. Nevertheless, the title is In the public domain. Anybody with an ear for music has the constitutional right to have it cauliflowere'd. • (Copyright, 1948, KlEB Ptnturcs Syndicate, Inc.) Arson. Charges Placed Against Nanticoke Pair SALIBBUH,T..Mi3.—(£>}—-Two residents of Nantlcoke face arson charges arising out of what'State's Attorney Rex A; Taylor.says'was an attempt to cheat an- insurance company. • '-Taylor said Nathaniel ..Perry, 22, had- been charged' with pouring kerosene on the floor of a. grocery store owned by Hilary Wallace, and burning it to the ground November 28. Wallace was charged as being an accessory, Taylor said the building and contents has- been Insured for 54,400. Perry was held in $2,000 bail for action by the Wicomico county grand jury, and Wallace was released after posting a . amount. County Christmas Seal Sales Chest Clinics Planned Dr. I. B. Lyon, superintendent of the state sanitarium at SabillasviHe, will conduct a two-day chest clinic tomorrow and Friday at the Health Department. Examinations are by appointment. - S3.251 of £10,000 Goal Reached, Edwards Says Christmas Seal sales by tfiie Allegany County Tuberculosis Association are lagging behind last . year, William J. Edwards, chairman and president of the association, lias announced. 1 Returns of 33,251 have been reported but the figure does not include contributions from Frost- bur? and Wcsternport, he said. Edwards explained that . Mrs. Julia Abramson and Miss' Mary Hanna, Christmas Seal chairmen for the communities, will not turn in their reports until later. Allegany county's goal this year is $10,000, of which 80 per cent will remain here for tuberculosis work, including maintenance of the monthly chest clinics and a future program 'of health education. County residents last year contributed a record $8,900. At the request of the state association, two sKeets of 100 Christmas Seals instead of one sheet were mailed in each letter to county residents for the.first time this year. Edwards said some confusion resulted early in' the .campaign, with a number of persons returning the second sheet of seals in tee belief an error nad been made. Although the standard practice has been to contribute $1 for each sheet of ..100 Christmas Seals, all donations are gratefully received, Edwards said. Persons who did not receive, the Seals but who wish to contribute may .send their donations either to the Allegany .County Tuberculosis Association headquarters at City Hall or. to Mrs. Teresa Long-well, executive secretary, 203 Greene Street. Edwards said t'ae practice of mail- Ing 200 Christmas Seals per letter has !>een in effect in Baltimore and several other counties lor several years. He urged county residents to return contributions or unused seals .promptly. 100 Per Cent Hike On , Liquor Tax Proposed WASHINGTON — (ff) — District Commissioner Guy Mason proposes a 100 percent boost in city liquor taxes and the license fees of dealers handling distilled spirits. He said he plans to ask the other commissioners to sack legislation in the new Congress authorizing the increase. Doubling the revenue from liquor here, Mason said, would bring the taxes more nearly in line,with those of nearby areas and would relieve the financial troubles of the District government. The present liquor tax is 50 cents a gallon, bringing in about $2,000,000 annually, he added. Mason said he believes beer should subjected to higher taxes here, because It is "the poor man's drink." Salvation Army's Yule Committee Plans Meeting The Christmas committee of tin. Salvation Army will meet tomorrow at 10:30 a. m. at the Citadel to complete plans for a one-day fund campaign in the area. Representative; of civic and service clubs will mec^ with the group headed by Forres- Brown, according to Major Elmer Wall. ' /' Peter Cooper, inventor of a number of varied items including a tin} locomotive, in 1845 obtained th. first patent for a gelatin dessert— but did nothing about it. Although wood will float on .water, sawdust will sink to the bottom.
