Local Group Plans To 'Clear' Drives Chamber of Commerce Fears Harm to Community Chest Fearful ,that the number of campaigns for the solicitation of funds m Hagerstown will prove "harmful" to the annual Community Chest Drive, the Hagerstown Chamber of Commerce Tuesday announced plans for the organization of a committee to "clear" such 'campaigns. The chamber office said the an- .nual Red Cross Drive and the Cancer Drive would not be subject to scrutiny by the group and that both campaigns have full approval of the chamber organization. Without naming any specific recent drive for funds conducted in Hagerstown, the chamber pointed out that in recent months a number of organizations have solicited funds in the city, and that complaints ,being made to the Community Chest indicate- that many individuals disapprove such solicitation campaigns. At the meeting of the executive board of the chamber Monday a chairman was named to appoint committee members from manufacturing, retailing- and -business groups. • It was reported that' within the last few days the Community Chest has received appeals for aid from the Philippine War Relief organization and the .Child Welfare League of 'America. In addition, the China Relief organization has asked the Community Chest to approve a drive for funds here by that organization. It was pointed out that the Community Chest organization is composed, with the exception of the Red Cross and American Cancer Committee, of all local aid and welfare organizations requiring contributions from the public and which formerly, conducted individual drives. .The chamber office stated that i£ drives for funds by outside organizations continue at the rate they have in the past year "it will create an unhealthy condition for the Community chest" which the public has_come to recognize as the organization where one annual contribution represents the individual'* contribution to all organizations. The members of the committee which will clear the'requests for funds from organizations outside the city will remain anonymous.- Duplicating W1NN OFFICE SERVICE 113 W.Washington St. Ph. 2600 the 1947 Post War Mode!

Germany, April 22 >).—The United States shipped $25,000,000 worth of Nazi-hoarded Hungarian silver and art objects back to- Budapest today in a new gesture of friendship. One hundred and twenty-tons of silver—needed by Hungary to keep her economy on a sound basis— and 370 priceless pieces were returned to the former enemy 'country under an agreement between the TJ. S. State department and a Hungarian economic mission. The precious cargo was__enroute to Hungary's capital city aboard a heavily armed U. S. Army train which reached Vienna this morning after passing in almost total military secrecy across Germany and Austria. It-.is scheduled to reach Budapest tonight o. tomorrow. Lt. Gen. Clarence R. Huebner, U. S. Army chief of staff in Europe, said in Frankfurt as hundreds of 66-pound silver ingots were sent on their way aboard the 14-car express: "This will show other peoples that the United States is honest If we have something belonging to other people we return it." The silver is the property of the Hungarian National Bank. Valued «Sy._ Array appraisers at $4,000,00u, it is the last of the monetary assets of Hungary removed from Budapest vaults as the Germans fell back in southeastern Europe before' Russia's advancing armies. The cultural objects—priceless paintings, jewelry and porcelain- are valued by Hungarian experts at 521,000,000. ' Placing greater political value on the silver, diplomatic quarters in Germany said the bullion would help keep Hungary's economy on the stable basis established last HowDr.Edwards' Helps Folks Who Are Constipated Porover40years, Dr.F.
