Fourteen. THE LEAVENWORTH TIMES, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 24, 1952. Bar Harbor Building For Tiie Future Washington, D.C.—Bar Harbor on Maine's Mount Desert Island, once ranked with Newport as a fashionable summer resort, has surmounted a disastrous fire and is overcoming the current scarcity of millionaires as she builds for the future. Shrewd Yankee town fathers realize fliat 1,000 tourists, each with $50 to spend, equal one wealthy person with 550,000 in a handy check book. They have encouraged fee building of modest vacation cabins on sites from which the great fire of October, 1947, erased glittering hotels and ornate mansions, says the National Geographic Society. With Canada's help, Bar Harbor plans to establish a ferry service from Yarmouth, N.S., and thus, in a reversal of the usual trend, attract Canadians of ordinary means down to this pine-scented American vacation place. Small sailboats and cruise ships for those with slim pocketbooks have all but replaced great yachts that once sailed over the cool blue waters surrounding Mount Desert's rocky coast Although John Cabot, the Bristol navigator, had seen the island earlier, Mount Desert was first explored in 1604 by the French voyager Samuel De Champlain. France claimed it as part of Acadia. The British disputed the claim, with the result that neither made much progress in settlement. After the Revolution, George Washington partially repaid Lafayette's help to the American cause by awarding half the island to a heavy land losses in Acadia. The rest he gave to a British family turned Yankee. These families, their retainers and descendants cut lumber, fished and farmed. Newport's social pace was responsible for the millionaires' invasion of Mount Desert during the Gay Nineties. Seeking a quieter and more distant environment than was to be found in the Rhode Island resort, men of wealth built i great homes to which they came in,summer aboard their yachts or : in .luxurious steamboats from Boston and New York. In fjordlike Somes Sound which nearly cuts the island in two, Mount Desert has a scenic asset reminiscent of Norway. The Jackson Laboratory, destroyed in the fire but rebuilt, .holds an enviable reputation for medical research. Gloucestermen fish famous r e d- fish grounds. twenty miles out in the North Atlantic. Winters are cold, with snows so deep that year round residents dig tunnels from one house to another. Mount Desert's planners hope to capitalize on the cold by making their island a center for winter sports. $20 Million Continued from Page 1. high as 20 million dollars. Conservative estimates of earthquake loss in the month following July 21 place total damage at 40 million. Yesterday's quake would boost that to 60 million or more All stores and offices, scores ol them, in a six-block area of the glass and mortar filled downtown sector were closed. The drop in commercial activity added another intangible loss, impossible to estimate immediately. Police Chief Horace V. Grayson said the six-block heart of the downtown section will remain closed until at least Monday. "It might even take until Wednesday to get all shaky walls down and bricks and glass out of the street," Grayson said. Gunn said that preliminary inspection shows at least 100 buildings badly damaged. Some, weakened on July 21, were made completely untenable by yesterday's quake. Schools and churches were particularly hard hit. City School Superintendent John Compton said there is doubt whether all stud- dents could be accommodated at the opening of the fall semester, scheduled in two weeks. Five churches cracked by the temblor planned emergency services elsewhere, the ministers announced. INTENT FISHERMAN—Butch Jordan, 10-year-old son of Lt Col. and Mrs. H. A. Jordan, Fort Leavenworth, intently jvatches his cork for the telltale jerk of a fish at Smith Lake at the post Saturday. Butch was one of a number of post and city children who entered yesterday's fishing rodeo sponsored by the city recreation department. John Laboda, 607 Osage, and Judy Smith, 1229 Ottawa, caught the largest fish. Tom Allen, 320-6 Doniphan, and Janice Jones, 416 Evergreen, caught the largest bluegills. Stephen Boughn, 318-8 Doniphan, and Nan Bollin, 726 Ottawa, caught the smallest fish. William Keys, RR 1, and Laura Sue Glenn, 1209 South Second, caught the largest catfish.

A reporter asked the Texan if 10 would "go fishing" in November in case Stevenson's decision did not please him and those who share his position. Shivers replied: "Well, we'll wait and see how things come out on this." But he did say he had nvited Stevenson to make two or three campaign speeches in Texas so the people could get to know lim. He said Stevenson told him he wanted to visit Texas but that no commitments were made.

Coulter, owner and operator v of the drug store has been in business longer talks on the subject of farming, than any other Potter merchant. Mrs. Coulter and her late husband George Coulter opened the business in 1910. Mrs. Coulter says that Mrs. William Hodge and Mrs. Johnnie Nieman are the only two residents now living in Potter who were there in 1910. The Masonic lodge at Potter is one of the oldest in Kansas. It was chartered through Missouri in 1856, before Kansas was made a state. The second oldest firm in Potter is the Surritte Hardware Store. Mr. Surritte has been in business for 32 years.

US Steel, CIO Agree on Contract PITTSBURGH ISI — U. S. Steel Corp. biggest steel producer in the nation, reached complete agreement with the CIO United Steelworkers today on a new contract. The giant firm was the last major producer to come to terms with the union. Earlier today, Crucible Steel Co. of America also signed a formal pact with the union. U. S.- Steel employes about 170,000 USW members in its far-flung plants. The Crucible pact covers about 15,000 workers at plants in Pittsburgh and Midland, Pa., East Liverpool,' O., Syracuse, N. Y., and Harrison, N. J. Both firms had resumed production under interim agreements. The U. S. Steel contract embodies all terms of a settlement worked out at the White House July 24 which sent most of the 600,000 striking steelworkers back to work after 55 days of idleness. Riclgway, Marshall Will Help Dedicate Chapel WASHINGTON, Aug. 23— tin— A memorial chapel at Suresnes, France, will be dedicated Sept. 13 as a shrine to the dead of both World Wars, the American Bat- Je Monuments Commission an-j nounced today. j Gen.

S. agency allowed to 'unction inside Red Germany. An informed source in Berlin said the three were arrested as they were driving along a road n the East Zone where they are normally free to travel. "They were driving along the road when they were stopped by some guards," he said. "They vere then placed under arrest and held for 36 hours before they were returned. They were not harmed n any way." At Heidelberg, a U. S. army spokesman said: "we will get in touch with the Potsdam Mission to investigate, but we do not expect to have any details before tomorrow."One source indicated the arrests occurred a good distance north of Berlin. This could mean that he Americans stumbled into the Baltic Sea area, which has become one of the tightest security belts n the Soviet scheme of things in East Europe. The Baltic area is reported mined to a depth of five miles inland. Some Allied sources said the Russians have placed such a high priority on the area that anyone who sails a ship or flies a plane within 12 miles of that coast is asking for trouble. The arrests were taken as a clear warning that the old rules permitting the four powers to maintain their separate missions in each other's zones might well be in jeopardy. Never, since 1945, had any of the four powers actually arrested a member of an accredited mission. Many have been detained for an hour or two until their Identitit* were established, but for no other purpose. f LUNCH FROM MACHINE NEW YORK Iff)—People who eat on the run soon may be able to get a complete lunch — including hot sandwichesVfrom one vending machine.
