EARLE Rev. Robert M. Earle took over the pastorate of the Meyers Ave. Church of the Nazarene this week and will preach at the regular service Sunday morning, August 29. Rev.

Nelson Cole, who served the church here for more than a year, left last week to conduct revival services for two weeks at burg. From there he will go to Nashville, to continue his education in Tenerecca College. The new pastor and his wife spent eight years as missionaries in central India. Rev. Earle who grew up in Massachusetts, has served pastorates in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri.

He received his B. D. degree from the Nazarene Theological Seminary of Kansas City, and has a master's degree in Religious Education. Mrs. Earle received her B.

S. de. gree in Education science at Ohio State and has a master's degree in psychology. The couple has three children, of whom were born in India, girls, 13 and 7, and a two boy, 4 years of age. Playground Use Is Not Restricted should be done with this groundthe Another barrier against any progress in securing the "playground" as a community recreation center was the propaganda that the deed to the property stipulated it could be used only for inaustrial purposes.

Research has revealed that rumor as foundless. The deed given by the Chamber of Commerce to the trustees stated that the land could be used as the trustees desired. The stipulation "for industrial purposes only" would hardly have been written into the deed given by Mrs. Louisa Slicer and Mrs. Bertha Friedline to the Boosters Club, because reputable citizens said that the property was granted at that time for the purposes of a playground.

Nothing has yet been discovered that that grant stipulated that the land could be used "only for the purposes of a but it's an interesting speculation to investigate. The trustees of the "playground" acquired the property by deed, dated March 6, 1928 from the Meyersdale Chamber of Commerce iNcorporated July 5, 1921. Joseph F. Reich was president and Howard Phillips was secretary at the time. That Chamber Commerce was the changed name of the CommunBoosters Club which was incorporated June 30, 1919.

Howard (Continued from Page One) trustees be bound by the Chamber's wishes? An attempt to answer may read us around the circumference of a vicious circle and back to our point of departure, namely, the property was deeded to trustees, but the indenture does not specify for whom they act. What is the point in this circumnavigation? Simply this: 23 lots hardly be sold to seven 1n- dividuals bearing the name of trustees for one dollar without the implication that they act for the community. Thus, their business as trustees is the community's business, and the people who make up the community are entitled to know how and why their business is being conducted. The trustees should publicly defend the ground they stand on. Furthermore, the community should have a say in what June 30, 1919.

Howard Phillips said that the Boosters Club paid $8,000 to Mrs. Slicer and Mrs. Friedline for the Just what are facts of the covenants of that deed remain to be seen. Famous Singer Pa. Week Ambassador (Continued from Page One) Members of the local Week Committee are checking with state officials now Mr.

Thomas to learn when it will de convenient for the singer to visit his home town. Just as as this information is received, details for the "welcome home" celebration will be worked out. Mr. Thomas was selected as a Pennsylvania Ambassador on the nomination of the local Chamber of Commerce. Only a limited number of former native sons, who have since received world-wide recognition for their achievements, have been selected as Pennsylvania Ambassadors.

So far as is known at the present time, Meyersdale is the only community in the county to have been lucky enough to have EL Pennsylvania Ambassador selected for Pennsylvania Week. Woman Suffrage Granted The amendment the United States Constitution which gave the right of franchise to the women of the country became effective on August 26, 1920.
