The town's volunteer fire department has a new look five women members have been recruited. Fire Chief Norman Cogswell signed on the women for a good reason. The men volunteers have jobs, and during the daytime it often takes them a long time to get to the station for a fire truck and then go to the blaze. All five "firemen" live near the station. The women had their first workout Sunday, responding to an alarm for a grass fire. The fire truck was on the way within minutes of the alarm, driven by one of the women, and arrived at the fire just as the first men volunteers appeared. MAcCxOOM , MAESTRO OF THE WIPER LIME.

N8nwis wSSfez fARPHHKiN hMw iiv 'iBi! I-'n I 'I WwVtmriv By HERB KELLY Miami Ntwt Rdlo-TV Editor A group of Spanish businessmen who had dreams of devoting 40 hours of Channel 23's UHF time to programs with a Latin flavor, have called it quits. They were losing too much money on the project. Their idea looked good on paper . They organized Tele-cuba and paid WAJA $4,000 a week for the time which they tried to resell at their own price. This is known as "brokerage" and is permitted by the Federal Communications Commission if the station retains control of the program and advertising content, William Stiles, Channel 23s general manager, said. The programming began In late March and was abandoned after this past Saturday's shows. Stiles agreed to Telecuba's request to cancel the contract. Sponsorship had fallen far below expectations. The station has been carrying announcements on the hour that the Spanish program format is being reorganized. WAJA will produce it and sell sponsorship time. Temporarily the new schedule will have Spanish programming from noon to 2 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, from 3 p.m. until midnight on Saturdays and none on Sundays. A Black Book Of Numbers Thi Niw York Tlmot Niwt Strvleo THE BOOK OF NUMBERS. By Robert Deane Pharr. 374 pages. Doubleday. $5.95. Robert Deane Pharr, a black man in his 50s, has been up and down, and here and there. Along the way he has learned more than his share about Negro life in America, and he has put a lot of what he knows into his first novel, "The Book of Numbers." Pharr will not be credited with having advanced the frontiers of fiction by any degree, but he has written an unusually good book a gnarled old oak of a book, rich and grainy in texture, sprawling and complex in configuration, a curiously friendly book to get lost in. He has made more than a few technical errors, but they are overwhelmed simply by his absolute belief in his characters and his total love for them. A chronicle for the tragedy and triumph of being a black man in America, "The Book of Numbers" is set in "The Colored Neighborhood," "The Ward," of an unidentified old town, "gently Southern and beautiful, a town of the cavalier, not the cracker." The time is the late 1930s and the characters are the inhabitants of the ward, a cross-section of sporting-life operators, drinking-pad idlers, political Uncle Toms, good-time girls and kids working and carousing their way through the local black colleges. Into the ward come two Itinerant waiters looking to make a score. One is a proud ambitious young stud named David Greene. The other is his friend and mentor, Blue-boy Harris, an ageless effervescent "tiny bull of a man," "the color of black coffee." Operating as a well-synchronized team, Dave and Blueboy organize a numbers bank to run the game of chance that sustains black dreams of sudden wealth throughout America. Dave enlists a cadre of "pickups" who sell slips of paper for small change and occasional dollar bills to people throughout the ward. The purchasers can select three digits (inspired by dreams, events, intuitions, license-plate numbers, addresses) and write them on their slips. The winning number is determined by the results of the first, third and seventh horse-race at a nearby track. The people of "The Book of Numbers" thrive on the game. Time is marked by the day's winning number. The bank prospers and Dave accumulates a fortune. Soon he "has unwittingly created a synthetic economy in the ward, and elsewhere in the city, that is predicated on numbers." But the question, the crux of the drama is: How much pride and Independence? At what point will the white world intervene and cut down Dave, his partner, his employes and women, and the whole community that looks up to him and depends on him. Inevitably, the anonymous white world does intervene, and there is death and broken spirits and madness. But in the end the black people only know that "most things do not last always, and that only the thing of black granite like the numbers, and like the niggers are forever."
