Describes Origin Of Festival Jews Observe Thursday BY RABBI MAURICE LYONS Pnrim is one of the minor . historical fe.stivals. and is celebrated annually on the 14th of Adar (in a leap year, en Adar Shenl or Second Adar). This year. Purim will be celebrated tomorrow. The holiday ccmnicmorates the joyous consummation "of the events so dramatically portrayed in the Book of Estiitr, which occurred in Persia during the rci^n of Almucrus (Xerxes. 485-464 B C) Briefly, tlie story is as follows: A certain Haman became prim minister. He was possessed cf a haughfy, egotistical, nnd vindictiv nature. Everyone towed obsequ iously to him, except one mat by the name of Mordecai, who : Haman fennel out, was a.. Jew, Disdaining to vent, his , wrath .-.•.-'against an individual, he plotter' "-'to > avenge his ruffled dignity ' bv exterminating the entire Jewish nation. He cast lots (in Hebrew tho word is Purim, hence ihc designation .of the festival) order to ascertain an ill-fated day for the children of Israel Believing the 13th of Adar the opportune day for his plans' lie craftily persuaded the greedy and fcolish Ahasudnis to sign' tlif massacre—decree against the' Jewish people, to take pfacc orV thai date. Providentially, ricivcvcr Esther, Moniccai's cousin, had ceer. elevated to the qusensnip of Per Gia. and so frustrated Haman't rmiftcr designs. Haman fell intc the bad graces of the king anc was l,ung on the very gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai. He, in .turn, due to past unrequited service 16 (he kin' was made prime minister; and to the Jews (here was "light and gladness, and. joy and honor." Tl-,3 Furlm festival ivac - or-' tallied by the men of the Great Synod, of .which Mordecni is said to have been a niemtor, to b£ celebrated annually on the 14th of Adar, with songs of rejoicing, alms to the poor, exchange ol gifts ( Manos), and gcn- tral festivities. Nowadays, masking, dressing up, plays, anud pageantry are the order of the day. 4 (Continued from page One) receiving i,i s assurance that the sales token plan will not te udopt- •cd dunnf. the present admlnistra- imn the committee recommended £m f' 1IUC 5l '° rllj ' aftEr !t «• comcned at 2 p.

The Inventor Is.Etui Damon, local barber, >v|io spends his leisure moments figuring out various contraptions or Improvements on those already In use. Tills roach trap Is tlio laltsl "brain child" of the Inventive Damon, who recently ' completed a model ot the trap which has been sent (o Waslilnslon for examination by officials ol the patent ot- to, if a patent is granted, the Inventor lias the backing of a small Broiip of local men who arc prepared to mamifacliire and plrica tlic trap on the market or lo sell the Invention outright, Of course, (lioso Interested In the development of the Idea are not, certain whether a patent can be secured. It is possible Hint patent rights have already been , granted for a trap ot similar 1 design but Damon and his backers are certain they luive ,ie\w «xm such a trap. Darkness Is Sccrcl It resembles a small rectangular o:<. Oh the boltom'arc small strips wlilch liold It about oncrlialt incli from (lie floor. 'Micro'Js a email I hole with n wire screen "funnel" oxIcndliiK into llio Imp. Bait Is placed In tho container, ami the (rap Is set In n place frequented uy roaches, wiieiv these household pests scent the bait and go Into the trap to investigate they cannot escape. In design it Is somewhat similar lo other roach traps on the market, but the secret of Damon's invention l s the fact that a | s dark Inside while most Imps In general use are constructed wholly or partially of screen iviro. Jn studying the habits of Iho roach Damon has learned tlml (hey aro nocturnal creatures and arc partial to dark plncr*. They will scurry to the protection of a dark corner or into a crack hi-the wnll or floor whenever n light is turned on in a room where llicy are abroad. Vot llio pust several years Damon lias trapped and sold rdacclis to fishermen who use Cltem for bMt, He has built aiid used various types of traps but noticed (hat his "dark" traps were more successful. Hence the development of his preseiil. Imp.' Tlio model wltlcli was sent to the, patent office was constructed of wood, but for commercial pur- posts the tiap could be made of light wclglil metal or other material, a has two pmis, th,, top being removable so the loaches can lie taken out and llio bait replaced. N'civ Slylo Gig With the details ofUils Invention already completed, Damon has turned his effort., to another gadget. Ho is planning to make a •barblcss" fl °8 n>ul "sh gig, when perfected It will enable frog hunters and fishermen \\lio yl s certain species of llsh to (!o so without tearing ,,p th e ncsh of their kill. Especially In limiting f rogs t) )0 barbed gigs often damage tlio meat Damon's gig would bo equipped smooth points, with barbs red. Wlwn the object has been gigged the. barbs would be released nnd prevent escape ot the prey, 1 but a ulgger would enable the huhter to again recess the barbs while re- inovhg the km, leaving only a H»nll. clean wound.
