The erstwhile quiet and solitude of the Brandywine Summit Camp Grounds were dispelled last evening, when through the woods rang the songs of praise from the largest crowd of worshippers gathered at an initial meeting for many years The first session of the 62nd convening of Brandywine Summit Campmeetiiig was called at 8 and featured a get-acquainted service, which was attended by about 400 people. Rev. Dr. Dorsey N Miller, pastor of the Fifth Street M. E. Church of Har- itsburg.

"Don't try to beat the traffic signal light." was the tenor of his warning. "The twin of the 'signal beater' is the driver who. stopped for the red. dashes madly forward as soon as the signal changes. He seems to think he's in a race and that the last faint trace of amber is the starter's gun. Frequently the twins come together, if they don't they come into violent contact with pedestrians. "Very few drivers ever pass the red signal. With the red them they are content to stop and wait for the change, but ui a majority of instances obered by the road patrol, drivers seem unwilling to approach cautiously when the signal is gri-en." ::-:-,::'-x4 (Special to livery tin ning.) Dover, Aug. 5. Secretary of State Charles Grantland today announced his disapproval of the plan whereby all new applicants for automobile drivers" licenses be examined before such licenses are granted. Secretary Grantlands opinion was submitted this afternoon to the legislative committee of the Delaware Safety Council, which met here with Secretary Grantland and Governor Robert P. Robinson in the governor's office. A request was made several days ago by the Delaware Safety Council that stringent examinations be de manded of all auto license applicants. After a conference with the governor. , secretary Grantland prepared his i opimon Which is sustained by an omnjnn rfV,rU.rii t,,u mnrr,,no, frnm Attorney General Southcrland. The opinion submitted by Secretary Grantland follows: "At the recent session of the General Assembly of this state, a bill, sponsored bv the Delaware Kaletv J Council was "introduced in the House oi Representatives, the purpose of which was to compel an applicant for a license to operate a motor vehicle to submit to an examination before : the issuance of such license by the ' Secretary of State. A strong senti-f irent in opposition to this measure j developed in consequence of which ! the bill failed to pass the House in j which it was presented.

"This we propose shall not happen. We propose to take every step necessary by the institution of proper court action to compel all of the parties to recognize our claims. "Our action when filed will disclose the most flagrant and astonishing disregard, not only of our rights, but of the public's rights as well." FLIER'S BODY POUND 5 THS I Lieut.

Harris, j Army aviator, who, with Lieutenant I William A. Gray, was lost in a coast storm last February, was found near here, yesterday, it was announced by coast guard headquarters, today. The body was lashed to a parachute and had become entangled with an iron grappling hook, which was partly buried in the sand. Harris and Gray left Mitchel Field on February 17 for Langley Field, Va.

SHREWD TURTLE CAPTURED DUCK; THEN LEO BECKER NABBED BOTH Disciples of Izaak alum have told many a fish tale. Some were true, and some not. Here's one and the truth, too. Yesterday while Leo Fecker, barber, at Twelfth and King streets, was fishing from a row boat along the Jersey shore, below Carney's Point, his attention was attracted by what he thought was a bouy protuding from the water. Upon closer examination Mr. Becker discovered that it was not a bouy but the tail of a duck. Reaching down in the water Mr. Becker grasped the two webbed feet SOUTH MARKET ST.

DOUBT EMERGENCY AIRPORT SELECTED . Doubt that any emergency airport i location in or near Wilmington i Kn coioH h atr,-,c f T.-f S ment of Commprro is wnroPrt hv Chamber of Commerce officials, as three sites suggested by the Chamber have been under consideration sev- eral months. For obvious reasons the location of these sites never has been published, T. B. Bourne and Alvin Smith, representatives of the Commerce Department, were in Wilmington this week, being engaged in selecting locations for lights and other markers on the new Atlanta-to-New York air mail route, about to be inaugurated. It is thought at the Chamber of Commerce that had they been empowered to select a site for an emergency airport for the mail service they would have so reported to the Chamber. FINED BY MAGISTRATE. Harry G. llichards was fined $23 and costs when arraigned before Magistrate Gluckman last night on a charge of reckless driving. He was arrested on the state road by Private of the fowl and "heaved." Up came the duck and with it a hugh turtle, with its jaws tightly closed on the duck's bill. To loosen the turtle and revive the duck required some knowledge of "life saving" but Mr. Becker succeeded in bringing the duck back to life and restoring it to its owner. The turtle, weighing about 14 pounds, is being prepared today for a delicious meal. This is a true story. It is the assumption that the duck, while "probing" for food in the water, was attacked by the turtle. HOOVER REGARDED STRONG CANDIDATE FOR REPUBLICANS Meaning. ! FORD ROOM LOOMING By R. M.

Within 24 hours, it began clearly to appear that the country chose to give the New Eagland interpretation to President Coolidge' fateful announcement of disinclination to succeed himself, and within 48 hours, it further began to appear that the Republicans, instead of beseeching Coolidge to reconsider, had turned to the business of proposing his successor. Already, interest In the Coolidge deliverance is giving place to interest i n the resultant immediate practical effect, which naturally concerns the party's sudden dilemma brought about by the unexpected effacement of the foremost figure in the Republican organization, whose continuance at the helm had been taken for granted by the leaders, as well as the rank and file of the party.
