THIRTY-SIX EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1948 Phone 4600 for a WAJST AD TaKcr Movie Becomes Strike Tactic CHICAGO—(INS) —A new-.strike tactfi; has been reported by police in Chicago.. . ' Recently, during a'dispute at the American Car-and Foundry Com pany a striker attacked with un erring accuracy a non-striker who had been .encountering no trouble entering the strikebound plant. • Everybody was puzzled as to how the. attacker recognized his victim so easily as a non-striker. That Is, everyone except Capt George Barnes of the police'detail. He charged that the union took movies explaining: "A 1 week or so before the attack, the union took movies of non-strikers as-' they entered and left the foundry. Then they brought, in members from another plant, and showed the movies to.them. . "This was to identify non-strikers to be way-laid and slugged." Capt. Barnes warned that the movie technique could work both ways. He hinted that movies of any disturbance involving the strikers might be- taken and in turn be used to identify positively any union slugger. '.

Water—Li-1950 AIG L E, Switzerland—(ff>) -T h e citizens of this little market' town n the Ehone. Valley are finally gong to have drinking water free of tubercular germs.. For more than 30 years, the town of Aigle has protested against in- 'ected water-released, from-the great ;uberculosis 'sanitarium, at Leysin, n the mountains above Aigle. A government analysis of drinking water drawn from springs at a ower level showed as.Ionff ago as 1015 that tubercular germs were iroscnt In .the water. At regular intervals lor over 30 years, the Aigle town council rms demanded that the Leysin authori- ies install a water purification-'plant at the sanatorium. The work was never undertaken 1 because of .its Plenty of Toe Room 135 .Baltimore St. prohibitive, cost. The Leysui au- i.horities have finally agreed to begin the erection of a purification plant by 1050. 'Fly Ash' Cement ST. LOUTS—(INS)—Electrical engineers have found a use for "£y ash."

LA GUARDIA FIELD, New York, —(INS)—Red Rover, a thirty-two year old French Shetland -pony, has arrived by p'mne from France to spend the res!, of his remaining days Brazing in the green pastures ol' Connecticut. Red Rover is not just another pony. To his anonymous owner he is- everything. One day in 1923 the owner—then a ten-year-oM boy, was presented •, with a brown Shetland pony. The youngster named it "Red Rover" because it loved to wander all over the estate. The boy was sent to school in America but always looked forward to the day when! school wouid close and he could return to France—and his beloved Red Rover. . Then as both he and the pony grew older, the owner and Red Rover would walk side by side about the grounds. With the -start of the war the owner was forced to give up. all plans- of spending his summer vacation abroad. Eventually he joined the American Field Service in. France. •- While serving with the group there, he had a chance to •visit his summer home. It was different. He found the people . had . fled. Everything was rubble and ruins. But Red Rover was there—a little.thinner but. still his old self. The pony, had gone through a ! cruel ^-ordeal. The Nazis had used him as a living mine-detector. They turned him loose in suspected fields to see if there were explosives hidden there. But the aged pony must have eaten a peck of four ;eaf clovers. He lived through his mine-detecting days, and came through without ;a scratch. Robert the Devil is the hero .of an ancient French legend about the young man • of prodigious .trcnRth who used it only for crime. The legend was used as the libretto for Meyerbeer's opera of that name. Until the American Revolution, judges in this country wore scarlet robes. Utah Features 'Cloud College' ™ .SALT LAKE CITY, (INS)—The geology department at the University of Utah recently renewed Its "cloud college" for the first time since before the war.

Each of Uie 400 students is given the tour, with 20 at a time making the 140-mile swing. Instructors go along to point out and explain formations and points of interest.

The tour includes a view of the Blngharn copper mine, the largest open pit copper mine in 1 the world.
