Local •»• Comic* •:• Clatiified Member Associated Press The Netetpaper For The Home WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1955 Second Section Pennsylvania Schools Face Closure Soon Bedford County Heads £-: Slap Holdup By State Of Operating Funds Bedford - County Schools might be closed the first of the year unless the state of Pennsylvania soon appropriates funds to meet school expenses. Lloyd G. Keller, supervising principal of the Hyndman-Londonderry School District, said today the next move is up to the state administration at Harrisburg. Dr. John A. Topper, president of the Hyndman - Londonderry Joint School Board, in an open letter .to Governor George Leader, said he would ask for the closing of schools unless the money is. forthcoming. The letter also went to Bedford County-school authorities. Many HJrd Pressed School authorities' say many districts in Cambria; -Indiana anc Bedford are hard-pressed to meel payrolls due lo lack of state aid. • John Hertz,, director of the Bureau of Stale Administration said that a number of school districts across, the state are suspending teachers', salaries. In his. letter to . the governor Dr. Topper charged that the school appropriations .bill, .introduced in the Senate in;, October,'; is t being used by the administration as a "prying bar to "'shove through a tax bill."H e also charged there is "political jostling" in Harrisburg. -'.••.' ' Dr. Topper said the Hyndman- Londonderry School District has been forced to borrow $60,000 from the Hbbitzeil National Bank, Hyndman, in order tp meet: payrolls and school operating expenses, 'Face Payless Payday Keller' said unless, state funds become available it'is doubtful'"ii we can pay our teachers for December."He said .the payroll for the 30 teachers and "4 custodians ( is ap prb'ximately" $12,000 per month..' Bedford County Superintendent of Schools William Mowery said all of the boards in the county so far have been able to meet payrolls. He added, however, that many are hard-pressed and are borrowing money to meet expenses. ' All school districts in Somerset "Bounty so far have been able to meet payrolls and operating expenses, said L. S. Williams, superintendent of schools.- From Harrisburg, Hertz-said 130 school districts in the state have requested advance payments on appropriations "which we haven't been able to honor." .Keller said at noon today that no reply had been received from the state administration, on the matter. He said salaries to teachers had been paid to the end of November and there is a possibility that schools would have to be closed if funds are not forthcoming between now and the end of this month. There is nothing definite and it is questionable whether teachers would or would not" continue in their jobs without pay until state money is made available. "But teachers have the right not to," Keller said.

During, his. career, Mr. Tiplon drove. every, engine from Ihe old No.' .500• - (the small .four-wheel engines-used by the: B&O in .the eariyi'-loops) .to .the present day diesels. • *• • One of the biggest achievements of Mr. Tipton's career came in 1926 when he invented a "rail washer." Seeing ihe need for a system to keep the rails clean of sand and dirt, Mr. Tiplon carne up with a system of .washing the rails. His-idea was accepted and approved by the B&O, and the company's present day system is patterned after the one designed by the Hyndman' railroader in 1926 ; As time marched on and progress was made in every walk of ife, the railroad continued to improve ' its engines and methods, and Mr. Tipton "marched along" with the progress and only last vear qualified as a diesel engineer.

A native of Bedford County, Mr. Tipton was promoted' to engineer August 4, 1907, and has spent most of his railroad career in his native county. '• Never Missed A Day difficult one for any but Mr. Tipton's age work .is a railroader, added further difficulty to Ihe lask. Many Experiences Mr. "Tiplon's first run was from Hyndman to Cumberland, and this ;rip took, approximately 40 minutes. Today the run is made in 15 minutes. After his first week's work the Hyndman engineer,received his first check ... 35 cents after relief and other deductions were taken out. Tiplon said he could lalk day and night on his experiences as a railroader, but atlributed his success and long service to his good health. During his career he said thai not once did he witness an accident or see anyone hurt while working on the railroad. Tipton said the engineers had o qualify during the "old days." as they do now.

Toy Variety Extensive In Local Stores i Comics And Television Figures Get Top Attention Of Makers The comics and television figure prominently in the themes of toys on the market this Christmas. One of tiie big sellers and more intriguing sets is the Dick Trac\ wrist radio. Using two of these children can talk to each other. There are any number of games contrived around the big favorites of children on television programs —Pinky Lee, Jerry Mahoney, the Lone Ranger, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and the Zoo Parade to mention a few. Again this year, the tiny housekeeper is remembered with the usual dish and pot sets, and cooking outfits .with canned soups anc instant puddings. One of the features of one store's toy department is a copper cooking ware set "just like'Mom's." There are all sorts of shooting irons for'the young cowboy or de tective. Some shoot ping pong balls, while others make noise with paper. Many of the guns are most realistic. • • • .' t Another novelty which is more than a toy is the truck with a loud speaker and searchlight on it. The user can walk alongside the truck and speak through a microphone to make ;himself. heard. the doll departments are slocked .his year to fit the'whim of any ittle mother. There .'appears to je more' large ones, however, than in past seasons.. ;• . ' With most stores having the best selection of toys in years, proprietors are urging shoppers to early so they won't be disappointed at the_lasl minute.

CubbageTalks ToAHS Group Special Equipment To Drive & Encasement Under Tracks Special equipment will be used to drive an .encasement for the 18-inch Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company water line under the B&O main line tracks at Mexico Farms. Water Commissioner William J. Edwards and Mayor Roy W. Eves stated jointly today that the Armco Company, pipe contractor, will bring the equipment here within the next couple of weeks. Installation will not interrupt rail service or disturb the roadbed. Eves said a 110-foot encasement will be driven beneath the tracks bj hydraulic jacks. The water line will be installed through the encasement. If, at a later date, the pipe for one reason or another must be removed, if is simply pulled out of the encasement .instead of digging up the railroad bed. Eves said. The only change in specifications to allow the work will be the use of ^pipe with one-half inch wall thickness instead of nine-sixteenths of an -inch. The Cumber a nd.Contracting Company, successful bidder foi laying the 'pipeline, lias progresscc to the railroad where it intersects with the main road at Mexico Farms. Installation of the line started'a sroperty of the glass company anc 3,850 feet has been laid,-Edwards said.

The firemen answered and spent more than an hour and a half looking for the accident. Firemen said an employe of the Penn-Mar Motoss said they also received such a call yesterday morning.

Local Judges Outline Plan For New Law The two judges of Circuit Cour here have written a second letter to Federal Judge Roszel C. Thorn sen of the U.S. District Court In Baltimore in connection with an effort to obtain the fixtures ia the Federal Court room in the Post Office building here. Last week Judge Thomson saic the Federal Court 'fixtures eoule not be obtained by the Circuii Court while the law still provided .erms of Federal Court in Cumberland and Denton. No court sessions have been held in the Post Office court room during the past 15 years. Chief Judge George Henderson and Associate Judge Morgan C. Harris in their letter to the federal jurist slated lhat U.S. Senator J. Glenn Beall intends to introduce legislation in the Senale at the next session to eliminate the terms of Federal Court here.
