TWELVE EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD- TUESDAY, NOVEMBER I, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Levee Work On West Side Starts Soon > The -Corps of Engineers hopes work on the West Side flood control levee will get underway within the next two weeks. The levee will begin at Kelly 'Boulevard and extend to the West Side flood wall which was built last year. Meanwhile, the Corps of Engineers is exploring the bed of Wills Creek near Baltimore Street bridge in connection with plans for Section IX of the Cumberland- Ridgeley Flood Protection Program. Rex E. Dexter, resident engineer, said the crew which is drilling in the bed of the creek is making a subsurface investigation to determine the conditions which will be found when the channel work gets underway at'that point. Bids for two sections upstream: will be asked, by the Army En-| gineers this week. | Information on the structure of the bed, and the distance to bedrock, will be vital at the point of the current drilling, site of the new Baltimore Street Bridge and the Western Maryland Railway bridge. Average annual milk production per cow has increased from 3,960 to 6,080 pounds in Indiana during the last 20 years. Assignment: America Gotham's Pied Piper Leads Tours To All Sorts Of Unusual Places (Reg. U. S. Pat. OH.) ; By PHYLLIS BATTELLE = NEW YORK (INS)—What everyone needs in his soul is just a ed the manager to his assistant, blushing. "I'm not sure," said the assist touch, only a whisper, just a soup.^ ..^ { (mk ^ wanls you con of the sincerity of. Hans| gh( ^ hjm lhrough tht> hotcl _.. Hacker. Mr. Hacker is surely the enthusiastic man in the world. He arrived in this country from Vienna 17 years ago. Less than five feet tall, with not the remotest idea of how to speak English, his only way of communication was a griB and the tipping of the hat on his glossy bald head. In blase New York City, this was a sight to be compared with a daisy in the desert. For two years he poked noise essly around the tourist spots, in- eluding the Empire State Building, Radio City and the Staten Island ferry, and in so doing he picked up a few words of English. When he ran out of tourist spots, he turned bold. One day he strode into the manager's office of a ritzy Manhattan hotel, took off his hat, grinned, and put a few words together as spiritedly as possible. "What does he want?" whisper- So aghast was the manager at e wonder--rather than the gall of Hans Hacker, that he gave him a personally conducted tour, with a free lunch in the kitchen. And Hacker has been touring out-of-the-way places ever since. Behind him now, buoyed up by his constant curiosity about the city and its crannies, are more than 400 other persons. He calls them, and they agree to it, the "New York Enthusiasts." "We're the average people," says the little man, still bald, still grinning, "and these things mean a lot to us. We see everything— go on about 40 trips a month—to know what's going on in New York City. Because you don't need to travel around the world, you know, when the whole world is here." Gotham's Pied Piper, who leads his followers by subway and bus routes and signals the strays with a small toy liorn, insists that he has lived all over Europe; that he's been bored in Vienna and Dored in London and bored, even, in Paris. "But never in New York. Here you can see everything from everywhere," In the decade of his career as lead of "N. Y. Enthusiasts," Hacker has taken field trips to every type territory from auto 'actories to spiritualists' seances :o artists' studios and ballet rehearsal halls. Their latest visit was :o the Schenley Distilleries. "I waited four years, for permission to go there. I would like ;o point out we are not a group of whiskey drinkers, but we like .0 see the what, when and how of everything. He waited eight years for the okay to take his eager 400 on a Backstage tour of the Metropolitan Opera House, and it was nine years before Hacker got permission to take his group to police headquarters. "And he needed six .years to get permisioh to see Horn & Hardart'B (automat) commissary, where they make 100 pies a minute. Isn't that terrific?" Not quite so terrific, we felt, as Hans Hacker, enthusiast. "Oh madame, please," blushed Hacker. "Thank you," he added, lifting his hat, shining his head and his grin for an instant, and then rushing out to visit the School of Speech Disorders. Enter Today at GURLEY'S 123 S. LIBERTY ST. CUMBERLAND, MD. Child Wired To Bed, Mom Faces Trial HAGERSTOWN UP) — State's Ally. Tom Kaylor planned to ask a jury trial today for Mrs. Dorothy Twyman, a Negro mother accused oi wiring a 5-year-old son to his bed.

Neighbors who found the boy wired to the bed with a straightened-out coat .hangar took him to a doctor during the weekend. The doctor called police.' Detective G r a y s o n Wigfield quoted Mrs. Twyman, who, has six children and is expecting another, that her son had spells and she had to tie him in bed. Indications were that the boy had been fastened to the foot of the bed and wasn't in it at all, Wigfield said. He said the boy was so weak he could hardly stand, but could talk :o police. James H. Twyman, the boy's father, told police he didn't know anything about it. Wigfield quoted nim that he and his wife didn't let along so she slept upstairs and slept on the first floor. Optimists To Meet An open discussion of new ideas for the club will be conducted at the meeting of the Cumberland Optimist Club at 6:15 p. m. :omorrow at Central YMCA. • City Eyes State Money As Base For Cutting Tax BALTIMORE (ft — City officials may use some of the money that has been coming in from the State for roads to reduce the property tax, if the law allows. The city would like to use three million dollars to finance the po lice department's traffic division, and the Department of Traffic Engineering. This sum 'would equal cents of the property tax, which now supports these two • units. T.he State collects money in gas oline taxes and motor vehicle license fees, and then redistributes if to the counties and Baltimore City. However, the law states that such redistributed money is to be used for either construction -or maintenance of roads and "for no other purpose." City Solicitor Thomas N. Biddison s^id yesterday he 'is planning a court action to test if it is legal to divert such funds to the traffic division.and traffic engineering or ganizatibns: ' • Irate Laundry Customer "Comes Clean" On Thefts HOUSTON, Tex.
