This/tribute' to the chorus.-itsel in no way lessens the highly com petent performances of, ther solo ists. Particularly pleasing was the manner in which Joyce -Bestwick Macy,. contralto, ner professional compared with .associates. In voice and 'artistry she was: "tops.' Main interest. for. .last. night's large audience was the appearance of Betty Wilson,-"a native of Frost Durg, as- soprano soloist; Now a member of New York's, highly-re [arded Pro Musica-Antiqua.(whose list of achievements is too long to recall here) Miss Wilson measured up fully to the expectations of the area friends who have kept in touch with her advancement in the world of music.

Sager evoked qualities f every facet up to 'sublimity in iis singers. There was a passion .bout some of the singing that ommunicated itself to the audi- nce, an achievement far beyond ie praiseworthy technical merit hat characterized this; year's oncert. . Merely as a personal reaction it s only honest to note that the ddition- of -a-.couple of-choruses o the long first part does not add o the enjoyment of "The Messiah." .' ~ For the. final solo number, the ass air "The Trumpet Shall ound," Peggy Thompson added rumpet accompaniment to the iano and organ.

'Mrs. Hare ran to a nearby neighbor -and-called Corriganville Volunteer Fire Company. A seconc call several minutes later from another neighbor went to LaVale Volunteer Fire. Company which also responded to the alarm. . When firemen arrived at the scene : the '-interior of the- house- wa: jurning and' the roof ablaze: The jlaze practically leveled the small Duilding which was. covered with arpaper siding leaving only the walls standing. Firemen were unable to save any -of the family's jersonal belongings or furniture, ^he-boy'was given a coat by one of the firemen - as protection against the evening's cold weather. .Damage .was-estimated at sev- iral thousand dollars by firemen.

West Virginia Higher Gas Rates Start Necessary Wailing Period Required By Stale Law Expires Cumberland and Allegheny Gas Company put higher rates into effect in central West Virginia today — the end. of a 120-day waiting period required by state law. Any difference between the new rates and those finally approved by :he Public Service Commission will be refunded with interest, if .final rates arc lower than those C&A requested. The new rates will show up first on the group of Ridgeley bills mailed December 15, Manager C. C. Robbins said. That group of bills covers meters-being read today. Bills In Proportion •In both the first'and later groups of bills, each bilHs figured in pro- jortion to the number of days gas vas received under both old and lew rates. All gas used to'day and after will be figured at the lew rate, while gas used prior to oday billed at the.old rate. C&A filed its request for a $765,)00 rate increase with the PSC in Charleston on July 7, 1955, to be effective August 8. Under West Virginia law, proposed; rates can >e put into effect if the PSC has lot ruled on the rate request within 20 days from the effective date. Based on -average consumer isage, the cost of non-heating gas —. for- cooking, water heating, clothes drying and other household purposes — will go up about $1.11 'month in the 'Ridgeley area. The average home using gas for all purposes, including house heating, will pay a total increase of about $3.35 -a month under the company's budget payment plan. Robbins said.. Revenue Need Cilcd C&A said it needs the additional revenue to give the company a fair return on the investments made to serve West Virginia customers. Of the proposed $765,000 increase in annual revenue, about $454,000 would'go to C&A as return and the other- $311,000 would be paid out in state arid federal taxes. Hearings were held before the PSC on August 24-25 when the gas company completed its evidence and testimony in support of its request. To date, the Commission has not set a date for additional hearings.- The new monthly West Virginia rate (per 1,000 cubic feet) is: First 1,000 cubic feet $2.25; nexl 299,000 cubic feet 77 cents; nexl Sewer On Valley To Be Renewed City forces are awaiting arrival of ncccssaiy equipment to clear up a faulty sewer condition on Valley Street between Centre and Mechanic Streets. An excavation has been blocked off there for some time. The entire sewer between Mechanic and Centre must be renewed, a spokes man said. The sewer, installed by the flood control contractor, is 'so deep that present city equipment cannot reach it. A ditcher has been ordered so the project can be com- pletcd. the inspiring final W. Kremer, speaking receding norus.. Franklin or the chorus at intermission, ap- ealed for more patrons and asso- iate members. The free will of- ering was a generous one. "The Messiah" drew people from 11 parts of the Cumberland area, nd the applause at the end of the erformance was prolonged and nthusiastic. -J.W.H. Local Soldier Breaks Leg On Maneuvers Pvl.

Banks Offer ' Vote Machine Finance Plan County Board To Make Further Study Before Taking Action u Five Cumberland banking institutions have offered to finance the- 103 voting machines recently ob- :ained • by the Allegany County Board of Commissioners on a 10^' vear plan with the interest rate set at two and one-fourth per cent. Banks which offered to handle .he transaction are the Liberty Trust Company, Second National Bank. First National Bank. Cumberland Savings Bank and Commercial Bank. No decision has been reached by the board pending a .study .of the financial situation under ,a 25-year bond issue to finance the machines: The interest rate quoted by the banks would be on the unpaid balance of the approximately $146,000. purchase price of the machines.. • The banks also requested the 1 commissioners to furnish; them" with an independent legal opinion- on such a financing plan. Such legal opinions are customary when bond issues are made and the com-/ missioners will have to obtain-an opinion no matter .which of the two plans, is finally-decided upon. ;.'"._ The voting machines have been delivered and. are stored at the Court. House. The Board-of Election -Supervisors has estimated that the county will save about $11,000 each election year by the voting machine system arid : curtailed- number 'of poll workers required.-.

By, paying .the" Automatic Voting • Machine Coriv pany the full cash price the-'"county will be'given a two per cent discount ..'-.-- Claim They' Lose -Money Undertakers claim they lose money on the- service. T/Sgt. John Newhouse, presi- dent'of the Auxlliray Police, says 30 of the 40 active members of the unit are opposed to the plan. James-McGee and Lonrrie Jackson, co-chairmen of the proposed ambulance corps, are of the opinion that the plan will benefit the city. McGee said the service will be open to all residents of Cumberland, La Vale, Cresaptown. Bowl ing Green, Potomac Park, Bedford Road (to the state line) North Branch, Ridgeley and Wiley Ford. Membership in the organization would cost $4 per family annually, and $2 for individual applications. Residents not enrolled in the association would be charged $10 for a day call and $15 for a night call. The organization, McGee pointed out, would be non-profit with proceeds to be used on the equipment and the purchase of new equipment.
