The Commission permitted the change to become effective August 1. The change applies to the company's Geneva central office dis- ; trict and it extends the Geneva I local service area to include Sene-I ca Castle and discontinue the ten- ; cent charge for calls between the two places. Seneca Castle, about six miles west of Geneva, is within the territory served by the Seneca-Gorham Telephone Corporation from its Stanley central office. There has developed a substantial com- mmunity of interest between Geneva and Seneca Castle and Many Seneca Castle residents work in Geneva. At the present time, telephone communication between Stanley and Geneva is either by toll connection through Stanley or by foreign exchange service with mileage charge from Geneva. Under the arrangement now filed, residents of Seneca Castle continue to 'be served from Stanley but by the payment of 50 cents in addition to Stanley rates they have free service to Geneva also. This arrangement resulted from negotiations carried on by the Telephone Bureau of the Public Service Commission following requests from Seneca Castle residents that some plan be worked out under which they would be relieved of the payment of a toll charge in order to talk from their residences to then- places of business. All of the telephone subscribers in Seneca Castle have been interviewed and are satisfied with the proposed arrangement.

Through her attorneys, Nevins and Nevins, Olean, however, she filed objections to the will, which distributes personal property valued at $2,000. Daughter of First Wife Lenore Vacinek claims she is Mr. Schomoer's daughter, through his first wife, now known'as Effie Di- Beach. The couple was divorced. In her objections, she claims that the will was not executed in accordance with law, alleging that Mr. Schomber did not subscribe to it in the presence of both witnesses, John H. Hicks .and Dace Park Adams. . . . . . . . Further, she contends that the decedent did not declare the instrument to be his last will and r at the time it was made, did not have testamentary capacity.
