THURSDAY, JANUARY 6, 1938. THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND. THREE PLANS FOR STREET BUILDING MAPPED Costs of Constructing Memorial Blvd. Block to Be Studied The city engineer was instructed to prepare plans and estimates of the cost for building one block of Memorial boulevard between Virginia avenue and Summit avenues. Mayor W. Lee Elgin said yesterday. The Mayor said he was also asking City Council tonight to'recommend to 'he Board of Street Commissioners the construction of one block of East Irvln avtmie and Magnolia avenue from Potomac avenue back of the Hagerstown High School stadium. If the cost of one block of Memorial boulevard is not too great, It is planned to recommend that it be built this winter. Most of the street maintenance work which gives se r «.ral scores of street department workers steady employment has been completed for the winter and the mayor proposes these projects so that these men will not be added to the jobless rolls. The proposed Memorial boulevard has been discussed for many years, but nothing has ever been done looking to its start. The block which would be done this winter is through a marshy section, which would be eliminated and drained. The boulevard would be of macad- em, which permits work being one during the winter. If this part of the Boulevard is completed before summer, it is planned to grade another block of the boulevard south of Summit avenue. The Quarry opened this week along the Antietam Creek from which stone for the city's new street construction program will come, is the first step in preparing the way for that section of the Memorial Boulevard along the Antietam creek, tinder the original plans, Memorial Boulevard would extend from the circle ut City Park across Summit avenue, thence under the Baltimore and Ohio underpass to Willow Lane, down Willow Lane to the municipal electric light plant, and along the west side of (he creek through City Farm to Funkstown. The drive would be one of the most picturesque in the city. PROJECT DISCUSSED BY OFFICIALS HERE At a conference'beld Tuesday afternoon between City Engineer Joseph I. Lyou and a representative of the Pennsylvania Railroad, the way apparently was cleared for proposed improvements to Walnut Lane, in'the rear of South Prospect street. The railroad representative indicated that he would recommend to the company that it deed the city a small strip of land which is necessary in eliminating the sharp curve at the entrance ot the lane from West Antietam street. The city proposes to improve this street, used by many motorists coming from the West End in reaching the South End and vice versa. The sharp curve at the West Antietam street entrance, scene of several accidents in recent years, will be eliminated and the street generally improved. Some day this lane wii: border an area which city officials hope to convert into an extension of the city park.

A special engine was die- patched with additional fuel. WOMEN CORRESPONDENTS AT CAPITAL WIN EQUALITY AFTER LONG BATTLE Powder Room In Press Gallery At Last! By .1. CLAUDE ALLEN Central Press Correspondent. Washington, Dec. 81.^-Although women have had political equality In the United States for nearly 20 years, it is only since the beginning of the present special session of congress that this equality has been fully recognized in the congressional press gallery. •< Here, where the nation's most eminent newspaper correspondents gather to report the proceedings ot cor.gress, there passed Into history with the opening of congress the famous "powder puft putsch." The last vestige of masculine domination of the press gallery disappeared with the opening of a powder room for women press correspondents in the press gallery of the house of representatives. "Burning" Issue. The "powder puff controversy" wr\s one of the live issues of the national capital for a number of years. For a time It obscured all other topics among the Washington press correspondt nts. It entered into congressional deliberations, and was a topic- for consideration ai the White House. It all began when the first woman was admitted into the press gallery nearly 30 years ago. Before that time, there was no such thing as a woman newspaper Washington correspondent, and the magic personnel of the press gallery was all made. The first assault on the old taboo against female correspondents caused historic battle among the congressional correspondents. In the end itie bars were let do'vn, and a lew women correspondents were "MY FINEST TOBACCO!" I HAD THE DANDIEST TOBACCO CROP EVER.

Women press correspondents in Washington have come Into their a own at last — with a powder room in the cupltol. milled lo the gallery. As the years went by, more and more women qualified for admission lo, this select society of writers. Today there are -some women eligible for admittance into the congressional press galleries, and about a dozen who more or less regularly "cover" congress. The term "press gallery" refers bolh lo the group of newspaper conespondonls who have been cenifled as bonafide reporters for recognized newspapers and press associations and lo the facilities which congress provides for, these correspondents. Large Quarters.. Both the senate and Ihe house of represenlalives have large final' lers, filled wilh typewriters, desks telegraph machines, telephone booths and lounging facilities .'or Ihe newspaper writers. This room opens directly out into the press gallery proper the special ivoried gallery overlooking the legislative chamber. Here '.he reporters sit and report the debates and pro ceedings ot congress. Admission to the press gallery is a democratic institution in that il is ruled by the correspondents, themselves, through a standing committee, elected annually, fron their own members. The standing committee rules on all applications for admission, and makes recommendations to congress on any needs which the press gallery may have. And Lounges. Congress furnishes the correspondents with rtationery, "copy" paper, and a start of gallery attendants. It also aas furnished them with an elegant washroom and comfortable lounging quarters. That is where Ihe trouble arose. There was such a washroom for men In each of the galleries of con gress, but hone for women. For years the women correspondents petitioned, fumed, and fretted. Long after their political rights were established, they were still denied their "powder I lift privileges" in the press galleries. Finally, two years ago, matter came to a head. The lady correspondents asked the local Newspaper Guild, then recently organized, to take action. A resolution Roller Skates R. D. McKEE Aladdin Lamps $4.95 up HARRY S.

Congress was impressed, even the White House was petitioned, and under tins pressure, the members of con gress finally took notice of tlio situation and promised to make an appropriation. Put On Presure. When time came for Hie n election oC a standing committee the women correspondents conducted a whirlwind campaign and succeeded in scouring Mic eiecl ion of H. slate o[ candidates (male) pledged to support the powder puff campaign. So when the regular session of f.he seventy-fifth congress opened last January, there was a powder room in t lie press gallery of the house. The recent completion of similar facilities in the senate gallery completed 'he establishment of equal rights for women coi'respondents. It was a grand victory.

S (IP) — Search for a 38-year-old man accused of making his family live like animals in a cave for four months extended today into San Gabriel canyon, 30 miles north of here. Armed with an insanity warrant, •herlff's deputies sought Hark Silverman, to whom his sister-in-law, Mrs. Dorothy Silverman, ascribed hypnotic power. She alleged in an affidavit that it she undertook to send her broth er-in-law to an asylum, he would exert hypnosis which might induce her husband, Michael Silverman. lo kill their two children. Four months ago, she started, Mark Silverman visited his mother's home, burned furniture and clothing, then forced the mother, Mrs. Rebecca Silverman; his brother, Joseph, 23, and another sisler- n-law, Mrs. Becky Silverman, 111, o accompany him into San Gabriel canyon. In the rugged mountain country, almost within earshot of the town of Azusa, Mrs. Silverman asserted her brotlier-in-law and his captive family "lived like animals." She said Silverman proclaimed it was sinful to wear clothes, forced his family to go nude and sleep on bare rocks, refused to let them eat nourishing food and continually harrangned that the end o£ the world would come Christmas eve. Last Sunday, the affidavit continued Mark's mother complained to her younger son, Joseph, that she was ill and would die if she were not taken from thfi canyon. • That night, when Hark was asleep, Joseph escorted his mother o within a block of her Los Angeles home and, fearing his brother's wrath, hurried back alone to Ihe canyon hideaway.

They could count upon his unswerving honesty. His name upon a map made it an authoritative document. A good name is no less important today. As you read the advertisements in this newspaper, you see the names of manufacturers and merchants who have builded their business success upon honest products. The very fact that they advertise speaks for their integrity. The store that stays in business has not only to get customers but to keep them year after year. Your good-will is worth too much to be endangered by inferior, unsatisfactory goods. Read the advertisements regularly. They will save you minutes and money. They serve as maps of good merchandise—signed with names which, like the name of Washington, have been tested by many and found completely trustworthy. -\
