I 1 szz. f ... v v... L This Bears Mention By Tom Maone 41 II II vtxuvtq mm MONDAY, JUNE 4, 1962 Page 13 If on The Defeated Observation after an afternoon at Delaware Park horses are dumb animals how come thev never bet people? . . . Saturday was a good day for hunch players at other tracks, though. A horse named State Offense won the ninth at Belmont. The jockey's name was Bove, Stamp Collecting Notes on supermarkets: Shopping carts: Women drivers are women drivers. Express counters: Most women who use them can't read. The glare produced by telling them of the limitation of items that can be checked there makes silence not only golden but advisable. Uniformity: Anyone accustomed to Acme can get lost in the A & P. Egotists: Men who do the shopping without the use of a handwritten list. Frozen foods: Those that aren't are in cans. Reunions: They always take place where the carts can block a straight aisle by women who haven't seen each other in at least 12 hours. Children: They are seen and heard. Conclusion: What ever happened to the corner grocer? Gas Savers It was the late Richard C. du Pont who made Dela ware one of the country's centers in the gliding field in the late Thirties and early Forties and the All American Enginering Company Soaring Club keeps the tradition alive with flights every spring and summer weekend. Walter Maiersperger is the club president and the club star is Stan Smith, a company vice president and a former national gliding champion. The thing is, it's kind of loose talk to call it a Delaware tradition. The club, which now has a membership drive on, is located at Lovett Field in Maryland. Barred Jokes Conversation around the bar is degenerating these days. An example of a recent joke: A freeloader was telling the man next to him about a hunting trip. "We bagged a couple of bears," he said, "but the big thrill was tracking yures." "What's yures?" asked the listener. "I'll have a martini, thanks," replied the hunter. This is a variation on the freeloader who said he had to go home and do his chores and the man next to him asked, "What chores?" and, well . . . Traveler About one-third of the latest edition of the Hercules Mixer, one of the many publications of the Hercules Pow der Co., is devoted to pictures and text of a trip taken to Africa, the Middle East and Europe by Ruth Ellen Reihm of the Hercules international department. You might say traveling is her hobby. On vacation trips and as a representative to the National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs she has visited Canada, Mexico, Cuba, made four European trips cover ing 16 countries, has traveled in Puerto Rico, Africa and Asia, and has visited 47 of the 50 states. This year she plans to be in Nebraska and Utah, leaving only Alaska to cover. She has covered many miles on vacations, but likely she's traveled more of them just getting to and from work. She lives with her parents in Smyrna and makes the 63-mile round trip between there and Wilmington five days a week. ' Gummed Up A note from the Four Corners, publication of the Rose Hill-Minquadale School district: The school board has just received a request for a conference from a second-grader. He wants board permission for the use of bubble gum in classrooms. First Step Taken For '67 Bridge To Cross Christina As Part of E. Side Freeway Project The first step in building a bridge for the FAI-3 free way has been taken by the U.S. Army Corps of Lngi- neers even though the work is still five years away. A notice has been sent by the engineers that the State Highway-Department has asked approval for vertical and horizontal clearances for a bridge over the Christina River as part of FAI-3. FAI-3 is the third limited- access road which will lead from the Delaware Memorial Bridge in a project scheduled for completion in 1972. FAI-1 has become the Delaware Turnpike to the Maryland line, FAI-2 will go to the Pennsylvania line on a course that will take it through the Adams-Jackson Street section in Wilmington, and FAI-3 will go to the Pennsylvania line on a course eajst of the Pennsyl vania Railroad through Cherry Island. According to the engineers map, the bridge will cross tne Christina about 1,500 feet east of the railroad, near the Con-goleum-Nairn plant. It would have a clearance of 300 feet from shore to shore and would be 60 feet above the mean wa ter mark of the Christina. Ernest A. Davidson, chief engineer of the State Highway Department, said last night that this is part of the usual routine in planning the road system Should there be any objections he said, the engineers would schedule a public hearing. He said it's difficult to pinpoint the time work would start on the bridge but said if (he present schedule holds work should be carried out in 1967 or 1968. 'The whole job is supposed to be completed by 1972 and I don't think this will be the last part of our program," he said. " ' ft ' ' ' I V - J it y , . ' nyi $ ; 'fi -; , Ss 'J v 1 S' i .

Beating, YSC Top Grand Jury List Storey Wins Gymkhana At Dover From the Dover Bureau DOVER David Storey of the Brandywine Motor Sport Club scored the best time of the day in the "June Bug Gymkhana" staged yesterday by the Delaware Auto Sport Club.

I couldn't care less.";End Neighboi.hood House, 710 The new principal of Pierre S. du Pont High School, Wit mington, is John A. Stanavage, currentl yprincipal at Mount' Pleasant Junior High School. At a special meeting Saturday morning, the Wilmington Board of Education gave him a one-year contract lor $iz,duu and set a two-year probationary period. Stanavage succeeds Samuel P. Maroney, who will end 40 years with the Wilmington public school system when he retires June 30. Before the board's unani mous decision, stanavage was quizzed at length . by board members. He told the board he considers the city the educational battleground of the future, where the challenges include the problems of school dropouts, shifting populations and changing neighborhoods. "If the public school system is to meet the challenge it faces, it must do so in the city," he said. John F. Heiney, superintendent of the Mount Pleasant School District, said Stanavage will stay on at Mt. Pleasant until the school board meets to promote Robert W. Williams, assistant principal, or find a successor. Stanavage said he believes firmly that junior and senior high schools, where combined, should have two separate programs to protect the identity Rabbi Leonard B. Gewirtz, spiritual leader of the congre gation, was the first to spread mortar over the copper corner stone box. He was followed by Cohen, Abraham Vegh, the cantor, Gary F. Rosen, chairman of the building committee, then former presidents, other officers of the congregation and leaders in congregational activities. Into the cornerstone box were placed records of the synagogue, a membership roster and names of special contributors to the building fund. The principal speaker was Dr. Samuel Rosenblatt, ra"bbi of the Beth Shiloh Congregation in Baltimore and son of the famous cantor, the late Joseph Rosenblatt. His theme was the divine order to worship in the beauty of holiness. He also traced the importance of the synagogue in the history of the Jews. AMONG THE other dignitaries who spoke were U.S. Sen. J. Caleb Boggs, Mayor John E. Babiarz and F. Earl McGinnes, administrative assistant to Gov. Elbert N. Carvel. Also at the ceremony were Rabbi Herbert E. Drooz of Temple Beth Emeth and Rabbi Jacob Kraft of Temple Beth Shalom. Participating in the exercises was the color guard of the Harry Fineman Post, Jewish War Veterans.

Play Plan Set At Meadowood The Meadowood Civic association has affiliated with the Greater Newark Recreation Association assuring residents of a full-time summer playground schedule. According to Glenn Smoot, Newark Recreation Association director, the offer was extended to all civic associations in the Newark area with 100 houses or more and at least 50 per cent civic association membership. Meadowood was the only one responding. Robert U. Spenglcr will State Hospital near Cambridge had walked away from the hospital many times before. He is now under maximum security at the hospital. Troopers gave this account: Miller was spotted on a bi- cycle near Big Mill Pond by State Trooper Paul Webster, who had been alerted along with other authorities when Miller walked away. Webster put Miller in his car, but the patient complained about leaving his bicycle. As the trooper got out to get the bike, Miller allegedly grabbed the service revolver from the trooper's holster pointed it at him and fled into a nearby field and then into a wooded area. Webster radioed for help and Dodson and Trooper L. E. North rushed to the scene. The officers say Miller came back into the open and pointed the gun at them. Motorists on the main highway stopped on both sides of the field when they saw the gun-toting man. Dodson circled around be hind Miller and disarmed him. Capt.
