To date about 60 merchants have signed up to participate in the program but because of fair time drawing near it has been decided that it will be necessary to close the registration list in two days so that the remainder of the program can be pressed. "We have had prompt and generous response from atoout 60 merchants" Mr. Carpenter said this afternoon,' "and we are hopeful that there will be a few more be- I fore it is necessary to bring the registration to a close. There remains considerable to do so for that reason we will have to have all [merchants signed up by Friday to | enable us to carry out the plan as | scheduled."

There is not only the society indebtedness to consider but the directors, merchants and other individuals who would suffer heavy losses if the fair is not successful. "Accordingly we developed a plan, with the merchants participating in a merchandizing program, and fully believe that we will have the support of the community and buying public not only in Canandaigua but from its widespread shopping area. "As soon as the list is closed announcement will be made of the merchants who have subscribed and the public will be invited to visit the stores of these merchants to give their cooperation and enjoy the advantages of the plan as outlined.

A 31-year-old Geneva residen;, pleading guilty to second degree forgery in Monroe County Court, disclosed a new racket involving a complicated system of obtaining bank credits and cash for fake installation of an oil furnace. Sentence of J. Walter Bowden was set for July 27 by Judge William C. Kohlmetz after the Genevan admitted defrauding the.Central Trust Company, Rochester, of $425.59 through "sale" of an oil burner to Clair L. Morey, Canandaigua lawyer. Bowden, according to Assistarr District Attorney Anthony Miceli, v ho prosecuted the cu.^e. offered to install an oil burning furnace in Morey's home last May but the attorney stated he was not interested in an installation until Fall. A credit statement (bearing Morey's forged signature was presented on May 12 to the Central Trust Company by Bowden, Miceli said, j Bowden ordered th£ furnace o n : May 29 from the Rochester Plumb- I ing Supply Company, giving the I firm a retail sales contract, which ! also bore a forged signature- of Morey. Later. Miceli said, the Genevan fiied with the bank a certificate with a third forgery of Morey's naive, purporting to show the furnace Lad been installed. The bank then made a. check payable for $415.59 to the Rochester Plumbing Supply Company, which deducted the cost of materials and gave Bowden $10".41 as his share'of the transaction after- shipping the furnace to the attorney's home. Miceli said the bank, the plurr.'s- ing supply 5irm and the lawyer were unaware of the forgeries until after the money had been paid. Morey. according to Miceli, assumed the delivery of the furnace was being n.-cde on Bowden's own account, and that the latter desired to leave the equipment at the attorneys home until it should be installed in the Fall.
