Stop Fires Before They Start "Stnn fires before thev start." the slogan of Fire Prevention Week, should be included in the aeiensive driving rules of every motorist, according to Edward P. Curran, Safety Director of Keystone Automobile Club, who reminds drivers that than 1200 vehicles fires have occurred on Philadelphia streets already this year. "Careless handling of gasoline, defective wiring and careless smoking," he warned, "are the causes of many of these fires. Oil-caked motors present a hazard and may be easily ignited by a backfire in the exhaust system or a short circuit in the wiring harness. Flammable rags, paper or other materials carried in the car or in the trunk may turn a spark into a real fire. "A cigarette carelessly tossed from the front window may be returned to the back seat Dy me vacuum created by today's high speed driv- ir-a Rrimf fnam rubber and plastic seat materials may become highly flammable under certain . conditions. "Unless yoji are an expert, it is just as dangerous to tamper with the electrical system of your car as it would be to muddle around your house wiring. Many automobile fires can be traced to the use of jumpers' in the electrical gadgets." Curran cautioned also that gasoline and highly flammable liquids, as well as other rapidly oxidizing materials, can cause fires. He said that they should be transported only under the most careful conditions as regulated by the Motor Vehicle Code. Keystone Automobile Club recommends that all automobiles be equipped with fire extinguishers. Many inexpensive but effective fire-fighting devices are now marketed in pressure cans readv for instant use. Birth Announcements Soldiers and Sailors Hospital Wellsboro, Fa.

Among his exploits was the hauling of a steam, mill over Cedar Mountain in the dead of winter to establish the first mill of this kind in Tioga County at the headwaters of Cedar Run. Billings was a colorful character and was known far and wide as "Lunger" Billings. The incident which gave rise to this nick-name as well as other colorful events of his career are treated in Mr. Glover's paper. Also included are several little known aspects of his career such as his anti-slavery and temperance reform efforts. Billings hand in the founding of The Park Church of Elmira and other philanthropic endeavors of the lumber king are for the first time set forth in detail in Mr. Glover's paper.

Drive With Extra Care On Foggy Mornings Early-morning fog shrouds highways in this area quite frequently during Autumn and motorists should be on their guard against the obvious perils caused by lowered visibility That warning is issued by Edward P. Curran, Safety Director of Keystone Automobile Club, in an appeal to drivers to exercise extra caution, "Pedestrians," he said, should be extremely cautious; when walking along highwiys obscured by fog, because their presence can be noted by drivers only under the most exceptional circumstances. "We cannot be too emphatic in urging motorists to drive slowly under adverse weather conditions. There are those who believe their familarity with highways over which they travel frequently gives them the right to drive fast in fog. Drivers in this class fail to take into account the possibility of disabled cars being parked along the highway. Another great danger is the absence of tail-lights on moving vehicles, or the confusion, leading to erratic driving, of operators unaccustomed to the road. CANCER SOCIETY NEWS Mrs. Henry Lineaweaver and Dr. Ernest Lyons of Wellsboro, Dr. Eleanor Larson of Elkland, and Mrs. Harry Wheaton and Mrs. Walter Rieppel, of Westfield, attended the American Cancer Society annual meeting and train ing school held last weekend at the Penn-Sheraton Hotel in Pittsburgh.

Dr. Robert Samp, an ACS medical and scientific director, summed up the three day conference with a Sunday morning breakfast topic, "The ACS Crusade Menu: Hardboiled, Scrambled or Sunnyside-Up." He stressed public education as a means of detecting warning symptoms in time, thus keeping the sunnyside up.

This is the time when you will be asked to dig deep into your pockets and give freely to the United Fund. As you know this is the only fund raising campaign that is carried out during the year and it certainly must give some satisfaction to know that when this drive is over there will be no "approved solicitors knocking at your door until this same united appeal again takes place in 1958. The plans for this drive are underway and if you are asked to help in some way, it will be greatly appreciated if you will give of your time and efforts to make this a most successful venture. It is most gratifying to look around and see the vast amount of good that is being done through the efforts of a group of people banded together into a smooth working organization that will go all out to put across a program of such magnitude. The budget for 1958 is listed below, look it over and be ready to say yes when someone asks' you to help. Crippled Children $ 400. Child' Welfare Service 50. Community Welfare 250.
