9 The Newtpaper For The Home Member Associated Press FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1955 Second Section Irate Woman Escapes Fine After Fight Pol ice. Separate Wife i And Hubby's Secretary In Hotel Room Battle PITTSBURGH — An irate wife from Cumberland, Md., yesterday talked herself out of a $10 fine for disorderly conduct for engaging in a fight with her husband's secre tary in a downtown hotel Wednesday night. Mrs. Minnie Bognar, 40, of 812 Camden Avenue, Cumberland, was arrested along with the secretary, Nedina Talovic, 24, of Library, after attendants at the Fort Pitt Hotel called police to separate the .pair. Fight Climaxes Suspicions At a hearing before Magistrate E. N. Johnson in Morals Court Mrs. Bognar said the fight was a climax to suspicions she had that ' lief husoand, Edwin, who. operates a sand and loam business in the Oliver Building, was more than a boss to his secretary. (The Cum berland City Directory lists Edwin J. Bognar as president of the Brad dock Liquor Store, Inc., 160 Balti more Street, Cumberland.) Mrs. Bognar said she started trailing her husband and the secretary after Mr. Bognar had been away from home for about two weeks. A woman friend trailed the secretary to Mr. Bognar's room at the Fort Pitt, and Mrs. Bognar engaged the room next door.. . After keeping the room under observation for several days, Mrs. Bognar said she obtained a key to her husband's room and made an inspection tour. Surprises Husband Wednesday night, at about 9:45, she told the magistrate, she entered the room with her friend and surprised her husband and the sec" retary. Mr. Bognar fled at once, she said. • Nedina-Talovic stayed to fight with Mrs. Bognar and police were called to separate them. Miss Talo- vic forfeited her $10, but Mrs. Bognar elected to testify at the hearing. "Have you ever been a detective?" asked the Magistrate. • "No," the Cumberland woman replied, "but I know how to go about it." The disorderly conduct charge was dismissed.

Albrecht Seeking Fourth' Contract Here The apparent low bidder for the next phase of the Cumberland Ridgeley flood protection project s the E. J. Albrecht Company of Chicago, who has' had three other contracts in the big program. Bids for the construction of two more sections of Wills Creek pav- ng and for the viaduct pumping station were opened by the Corps f Army Engineers yesterday afternoon in Washington.- The Albrecht firm bid $2,115,369 with Lycoming Construction Company, second lowest with $2,429,70.75. Other Bidders Other bidders were Moyer Com pany, $2,464,099; George F. Hazelwood Company, ?2,661,022, and and Bowman, $2,722,215. ase Against ity Settled For $5,000 v Papers were filed in Circuit Court today showing a compromise ettlement of the claim of a former member of the Cumberland 'ire Department, against the city. Thomas. B. Finan, city attorney, aid the city arid counsel for James lugh Hunter, 26, who made a laim after collapsing while riding in one of the city fire trucks on September 24, 1954, reached a set- lement under which Hunter will eceive payments totaling $5,000. Hunter had been granted dis- ability'payments not to exceed $6,00 by the State Industrial Accident Commission at a hearing some ime ago. The contract represents about one-eighth of the construction work and:will push the job well past the lalfway mark. The Corps of Engineers has allotted 700 working days for the construction which will carry the swift channel plan to just past the Marret-Street Bridge, and provides lor the construction of a pumping station near the B&O Viaduct. If the contract is awarded to the Chicago firm, it will mean :hat the company will be constructing at least one-third of the project. Previous contracts awarded to the company include Section I of Wills Creek,. the industrial dam and the current Potomac River contract. The contract price of :hese' three exceeds $3,000,000. Need Much Concrete The contract includes the realignment and excavation to new grades and cross sections of about 3,200 feet of the channel of the creek. .Some 2L920 cubic feet of concrete will be needed to pave the floor and sides of the channel designed to speed the passage of water in the creek. * 'Construction of the pumping station, adjacent to the B & 0 viaduct, will require about 980 yards of concrete. The contractor will also furnish equipment for the pumping station. Plans call for the installation of two -pumps, each with a capacity of 23,000 gallons an hour. A recent report of the Corps ol Engineers showed that work on the local flood protection projecl began early in 1949 and was aboiil 37 per cent complete. The system of concrete flooc walls and earth levees, along with facilities for disposing of surface water, is designed to protect against 28 per cent more water than in the 1936 flood.

The commissioner said he will ask the Mayor and Council Monday for authority to advertise for uniforms for the policewomen, needed to relieve regular police officers for other duties. Finances will be a problem, he added, since the Police Department budget cannot be stretched :o provide for the policewomen. Keegan explained the cost of the patrol can be charged to the Poice Department until April 1, when funds can be transferred from other departments. The Hagerstown Police Department, h« added, will be contacted so Cumberland can get the benefit of that city's experience with its 'eminine school crossing officers.

Must'Go Many Places Mrs. Srokosik said that in Germany one must travel from store to store for each item ,of food, and that it usually takes two days to do a week's shopping. The plan of having all types of food items in one store, is just something she can't get over. In Germany one must purchase meat at one store, eggs at another, flour at another, and vegetables at still another. The price of food is much high-' er in Germany than the U. • S., Mrs. Srokosik says. For example j she pointed out how five or six persons handle the food items before it hits the market. The system runs something like this: The farmer sells to an inspector;, another inspector buys from the first inspector: this inspector resells to another inspector, who in turn resells to t)ie market. Many people in the United States have complained about the "middle man," but the American 'system, can't begin to compare with the method used in Germany, she added. Materials Better Here Mrs. Srokosik said that some things cost a little more in the U. S., but the material is much better. For example she pointed out a pair of her son's shoes, which cost approximately $8 in Germany, but would year out in six months. Mr. Srokosik was employed as a railway agent in Germany, and his salary totaled .40 marks, equal to $10 per week in American money. Mr. Srokosik speaks some English, Polish, Russian and Czech. Mrs. . Srokosik's son. Jurgen Bless is a quiet lad and thinks that Allegany High School is something out of this world. He's studying music, reading, physical education, science. English, shop, art and social studies at the West Side school. Jurgen attended school in Germany from 8 a. m. until ,1 p. m., six days a week, and believes the classes were harder in his home land.

Area Man Hurt In Auto Crash James Schultz, 23, of Friendsville, seriously injured in an automobile accident Wednesday, re* mains in "fair" condition at Union town (Pa.) Hospital today. Schultz was riding in a car driven by Frank Citz, 37. Union town, Wednesday at 11 p.m. when it failed to negotiate a sharp curve on U.S. Route 40 at Gorley's LakV Hotel. The vchcile tore out five guard posts and overturned, State Police said. The car was demolished and damage estimated at $3,000. Schultz suffered a compound fracture of the right upper arm, fractured ribs, contusions of the chest and multiple arm lacerations. He is a driver for Eastern Freight Lines. Ciez, also admitted to the hospital, received multiple scalp lacerations and abrasions of the face. posal made by various Frostburg groups. Permission from the State Roads Commission would have to be obtained before the temporary signs could be erected. Hughes said in his letter that there are 10 warning signs on Summit Mountain near Uniontown which warn trucks of the dangers in descending the steep grade. The commissioners today passed a resolution calling attention to the observance of American Education Week starting Monday. The resolution was passed on the request of W. Ardell Haines, principal of Bruce High School at Westernport.
