The furlough -will apply to • men fa 33 locomotive and car shops, in- cludinp 30 men at the Keyser, W. Va., installation, on Friday. The rpason for the latest layoff is the seasonal decline in'tlie railroad's freight business. .A Baltimore official said the B. and O., which declared .'a', dividend last year first .time in 16 year?, 35;000 less carloads of freight last month than in'Decem- ber, 1947. • ' The decrease In carlondings Is to be expected in December, .he said, because of the very large inventories In such basic materials as lumber, coal and steel that have been accumulated at this time of the year by business firms and manufacturers. TVhen carloadings decline, he explained, it means more freight cars and locomotives are .idle, on the tracks and fewer men are consequently needed in 'the repair' and maintenance shops. The official said: "There has been n severe drop In business, particularly freight business, and it has not picked up yet." Included among the furloughed workers arc electricians, carpenter.', pipe fitters, sheet metal workers blacksmiths and molders.

Stamp, chairman, Dr. Milton S. Granet and Dr. William Allen, announced that Monday;-'February 7, will be-observed as Children's Dental Health Day.. ... "Dentists appreciate the .necessity of giving children's .teeth.- adequate care' and many-capable dentists devote a' large portion of their time to. care of children's, teeth," the committee said. . ... "Dental caries, to use, the'tech- nical term for tooth decay, , are more prevalent than, any- other ailment with the exception of the common cold. It is estimated that 98 per cent of the population of the United States suffers from dental cnrics. During' World War II it was found that 18.8 per cent of the men of draff age had to be rejected because of the severity of their denial decay. . ' "Dentists," the committee added, "urge parents to have their children's teeth examined in the third year of life. At this early age, tooth decay is common and can be treated quickly and cheaply. This early treatment insures a minimum loss of teeth and-is also, an important health measure." ... The annual observance is sponsored by the American Cental Association, the committee said. No active program, is planned- here except that parents are asked to bring children to a dentist for an examination. • Graf ton Widow Wins Jackpot GRAFTON, W. Va— (!?}— Mrs. Cleo M.
