COLUMBUS (UPI) - The Pub lie Utilities Commission's ruling on whether to order railroads to install warning signals at five Greene County crossings has been frozen, pending attempts to enlist federal aid for the projects. The commission concluded hearing testimony Thursday on the petition by Beavercreek Township residents to require the Pennsylvania and Baltimore and Ohio railroads to install flasher lights at their Valley Road crossing. The crossing is one of five which county leaders are trying to protect with flasher lights at railroad expense. Included is the Factory Road crossing where eight young girls and two mothers were killed six. months ago in a train-car collision. Since then, the battle between aroused citizens and financially- pressed railroads—flasher warnings cost up to 20 thousand dollars to install—has been cooled in a series of PUC hearings and the passing of time. Last spring both the railroads and the Greene County commissioners agreed to ask the Highway Department to petition the Bureau of Public Roads to make the crossings eligible for federal funds. The matter now rests with the Greene County engineer who is said to be preparing data for the Highway Department to show why the government ought to pay most of the protection money instead of the railroads. The PUC attorney examiners hearing the cases have been asked not to recommend any action to their commissioners until they hear what the federal government decides. In Thursday's Valley Road hearing, seven witnesses testified for the railroads and three for the Greene County interests. Harry Kile, lawyer for the Beavercreek group, questioned Vaughn Lewis, executive head of schools in the township and leader in the local effort to replace the crossbuck signs at the crossings; Rep. Herman Ankeney (R-Greene) and a PUC railroad inspector. Early in the hearing, Kile protested—and was sustained—that the railroads were comparing the; Valley Road crossing with the other four on the basis of their relative dangers. He urged that the crossings not be lumped into one issue but he considered separately.

Judge Revives "Hallowed" Memories Of Boyhood In Milan; White Is Honored MILAN—Stating "this ground is almost hallowed to me," Judge Hugh Culbertson of Ashland returned to the scene of his youth Thursday to officially open the three day Homecoming and Melon Festival here with an address which stirred memories of the past.

Application forms will be distributed on the first day of school or shortly after. The school administration was satisfied with the operation of the program last year when approxi­ mately 65 percent of the student body participated. Claims were settled very promptly and the burden of the parents involved in these accidents was lessened. The policy covers an accident to and from school, within school, while on school grounds, while participating in athletic contests, except football, while riding a school bus to and from school, or while taking required field trips. Milan and Sandusky as a boy, was educated in Milan school, and "learned to play euchre at the livery stable on the corner." In his day, the judge said, Milan was the "Chicago of the world," ranking second only to Odessa, Russia, in the world's grain markets. "Be Proud Of Heritage" Judge Culbertson charged those in attendance at the outdoor program in the village square park to "be proud of your heritage- it's the greatest anyone could have." Also speaking in the brief ceremonies were Dr. Frank J. Prout, president-emeritus of Bowling Green State University and a former Milanite; Wallace White, village historian who, at a dinner of dignitaries following the program, received a plaque from the Milan Chamber of Commerce in recognition for his untiring efforts in restoring Milan's history; and James P.
