Friendships and contacts cf eighteen years ago were renewed in Hagerstown Monday by Commandant F. A. Willis, of the Washington branch of the Salvation Army, who is hero in the interest of completing the budget for the local Salvation Army for this year. Commandant Willis recalled that lie was located in Hagerstown eighteen years ago, when the Salvation Army was strug- giingg for a firm foothold in- this city. lie said he was pleased with the advance the Army has made here and especially over the fact that it hag a permanent home made possible by the efforts of those who have been active in the work and the generosity of the people. The Commandant said the Salvation Army work here, in order to be more effective, and to set the lull benefit of the home as a spiritual and charitable asset to the city and community, needs fuller financial support, at least to the point of raising the budget necessary to carry out the year's program. He feels that he will be heartily received and supported in his efforts to complete the work. Riverside, Cal., Feb. 11. (ff)--Gordon Stewart Northcott, convicted last week on boy murder charges regained much of his wonted nonchalance this afternoon as he heard Judge George R. Freeman pronounce upon him the sentence of Officers and Men Of Local j death. Forty minutes later he was ' on his way to San Quentin prison. National Guard Are Commended Company B-, Maryland National Guard, was given their annual Federal inspection at the Armory last night, with sixty members out of a membership of sixty-one present. Capt. H. H. Myer, representing the Feclreal government, and Col. D. John Markey, commander of the First Infantry, made the inspection. During the hour's inspection last night the company men displayed all phases of military training. Col. Markey expressed his commendations to officers and men of the company, and said he noted a great improvement over last year. While the official report of inspection will not be known for several months, the company-feels it has passed the test. About 1,00 local people witnessed the inspection, displaying great interest. This interest of the public helps to build up militarism and the public is incited to the weekly drills j each Monday night. The Armory and government equipment were inspected in the after- i noon. The prisoner made a motion"for a two-day stay to prepare an appea 1 for a new trial, but this was denied. OYSTER SUPPER AND DINNER. By Hag. Camp No. 1 W. 0. W. Wed.

And it I . was reserve force that enabled him to do the step^^ ping Whether called upon to endure the hardships of frontier life or to wrestle with the problems of a government in-the throes of war, Lincoln always had at his command a reserve force, built up during the years of his boyhood struggles, that lifted him over seemingly unsur- mountable barriers. This bank--established three years before Lincoln was born--has constantly increased its resources in step with the orowing needs of Hagerstown's commercial and mdus- triaf activities. Today its total resources are in the neighborhood of ten million dollars. It has grown to this measure of usefulness as a financial reservoir by aiding the financial growth of individuals and business concerns; by taking a specific, constructive part in the community's advancement What about your resources? Have you a reserve force a substantial balance, to help you meet emergencies or to'grasp opportunities? If not, open an account here and keep it growing by regular deposits.
