Richard M Johnson, postal inspector here, re ports. Johnson questioned Cassidy this morning at the County Jail where he gave himself up to Sheriff Ed' . ward R. Muir yesterday. Cassidy said he opened a box on KB 5 at Bowling Green, opened a letter that had been left there for mailing in hope of finding money. Finding none, he said he took the opened letter to the Cumberlanc Post Office to give himself up to Johnson. Johnson was not in his office al the time, so Cassidy said he wenl to the County Jail to surrender. The 55-year-old man .explained that he gave himself up because he figured that the authorities would get him sooner or later.

He did not serve the entire term as he was given time off for good behavior in prison. Johnson reported that he is re ferring to George Cochran Doub, U. S. District attorney for Maryland, to obtain an authorization for prosecution. ' Obituary ARNOLD—Miss Elizabeth P., 72, Keyser. BISER—Mrs. Samuel H., 70, Bur_ lington'. DAVIS—Mrs. Lelitia, 79.

Their shelves are loaded down with merchandise. Their stores have been crowdei with customers, including those ii Cumberland with local merchant; reporting sales running from abou the same to 22 per cent ahead o last Christmas season which was a record year. Customers At Ease Merchants agreed that custom ers are a little more at ease abou spending and taking on future ob ligalions than they were last year And among the children, one Cumberland store reported a gooc healthy belief, in Santa Claus. Its toy-selling gimmick has been ai invitation to the kids to call the store on the telephone between.6 and 8 o'clock and talk to Santa. By 6 p. m., officials said, the switchboard was swamped. . And the customers, their wallets bulging with a record amount o Christmas Club savings, are spend ing freely. . Throughout the state, the picture is the same. Generally good weath er and earlier Christmas display; and advertising have brought shop pers out earlier than -ever before Shopping Started Early Most merchants believe — and nope — the crowds will continue through Christmas Eve. Thanksgiving, on Nov. 24 this year, was observed on the ^earliest date allowed by the calendar anc provides an extra shopping day be- ;ween Thanksgiving and Christmas. But in Baltimore and even some of the smaller cities in the state, shoppers didn't wait for the traditional Turkey Day opening of the Ihristmas .shopping season. They began coming out in good numbers the Monday before Thanksgiving and v they haven't slowed down appreciably since. •Prices in Baltimore, Cumber- .and, Hagerstown, Frederick, Annapolis, Cambridge, Salisbury and Saston are reported about the same as 19547 In some places and on some items they are slightly ligher. Most merchants agree quality of merchandise is'up and the assortment better than last year. Inventories Good ,A11 say they have sufficient inventories to see them through the season, particularly in toys and other seasonable items. One large Baltimore Department store TJIeTfeport a run "on kneehole desks and cedar chests and has had difficulty getting them from other stores in other parts of the country. But this apparently was an'isolated instance. The same slore noted "lavish >pending" for some items, includ- ng $100 women's handbags, and sale of a ?100 baromeler and a 134 mahogany bar, or "cellarelle" —the name it sells by. Baltimore department stores said heir biggest problem of the sea- on has been the shortage of full- ime seasonal sales people, an indication of full employment, one store executive said. Another • said: ,-"We're taking hem if they breathe — not breathe regularly, just if they brealhe." Extra Help Available But this was strictly a big city iroblem. Stores in Cumberland, lagerstown, Frederick, Annapolis, Salisbury and Cambridge reported ilenty of extra help available. However, Cumberland merchants igreed unanimously there is a def- nile shortage of "experienced help.'.'. Last Friday and Saturday marked the first days of selling iter the bank issued Christmas Club checks in Frederick, and the etailers bureau of the Chamber of Commerce called the resultant shopping rush "excellent," "much above expectations." Last Monday was the first night the stores stayed open in Cambridge and merchants there were "very, very pleased" with the turnout and the volume of business. Customers stood in lines at some stores. In Salisbury, William Riordan, head of the Retailers Assn., said Christmas business should break all records. He predicted a Ihree- lo-five per cent gain over last year which was a record breaker.

Reslorecl As Repairs Are Made To Cable On Route 40 Telephone service between Cum- jerland and Baltimore and other eastern cities was cut off from 2:53 p. m. yesterday until 2:35 a. m. today as the result of three bullets jeing fired into a section of cable .n the Green Ridge Mountain area. The cable, just off U. S. Route 40, was hit by three '<ullcts and C. iValler Haschert Jr., manager of the C&P Telephone Company here, said that it appeared someone stood beneath the cable and deliberately fired into the cable. One of the bullets lodged in the cable while the other two pierced the wiring. The damaged section of cable, which measures. about 2Vz inches n diameter, was discovered about i:15 p. m.., Haschert said. As a result of the damage, some 25 circuits to Baltimore were out; 0 circuits to Washington, D. C.; hree lo Philadelphia and four to New York' City. The local telephone office was landling long distance calls and service was not restricted to an emergency basis; Haschert said all calls were being accepted and an attempt was made to gel them hrough. With yesterday's trouble, Haschert said, . it was impossible to dial direct to the easlern cilies. He also said that in the event service was cut off entirely, calls could be rerouted through Bed- 'ord to the cities. After the damaged section of cable was located workmen began he task of splicing the damaged .vires and repairing. Haschert said such occurrences are not unusual although they are $500 iccentuated during small game beer, ;eason when squirrels climbing along the. cable system are shot at by hunters. . Teletype service from the Assoc- ited Press in Baltimore to Ihe Times and Alleganian Company also was affected b} the damaged able, but was restored. Superintendents Ansiver Critics Of High Schools The criticism of high school graduates being unprepared for college-level mathematics and English made by two University of Maryland deans has resulted in widespread reaction among educators in the state. : —~ The deans, Leon Smith of the Sloan Finds Escape Hatch For Veterans BALTIMORE «l — A'Baltimore lawyer has found a way out, an es cape hatch, so to speak, for some members of a group of folk who are being dunned, by the U. S. government. •During prohibition, many person: who were fined $250 to $500 for violating the no-drink ban escaped payment by taking a pauper's oath. But federal authorities. say if those people have the money now, they have to pay it. They are being dunned by the government. Recently, one of them went to attorney John Sloan, former judge advocate of the Maryland Ameri can Legion. Sloan is a native of ;umberland. It turned out the client was a veteran who had served four years in the Army during World War II and been honorably discharged. Sloan said he thought he remembered President Harry S. Truman issuing a proclamation in Decem- jer of 1945 granting anyone with an honorable discharge after one year of military service a "full pardon" for any crime against the U. S. prior to July 29, 1941, providing it wasn't under military jurisdiction. A check with the Library of Con- ;ress bore him out. Sloan offered this proclamation ,o federal authorities in defense of lis client and they wiped out a fine for he said. possessing illegal Vlayor To Get ?*olice Report The Volunteer Auxiliary Police \ssociation will submit a formal eport to Mayor Ro-* W.

William Withroiv Named To Local Gas Office Post William Withrow, Gettysburg, Pa., has been appointed assistant office manager of the Cumberland district of the Cumberland and Allegheny Gas Company, according to C. C. Robbins, district manager. Withrow has been chief clerk in the Gettysburg office of the Manufacturers Light and Heat Company since September 1950. Prior to that he had served 12 years in various West Virginia locations. He became associated with the firm in 1938. Both the Manufacturers and C&A firms "are affiliates of the Columbia Gas System. Douglas D. Houston of Pittsburgh, an auditor in the general offices there since 1953, will succeed Withrow as chief clerk at Gettysburg. i university's College of Arts ant Sciences and S. S. Steinberg ol the College of Engineering saic earlier this week that they were desperate because 10 to 12 pci cent of the Maryland University freshmen fail English and that 30 to 35 per cent must repeat a high school mathematics refresher course. And today, Dr. Wilson H. Elkins, University of Maryland president, sought 'to pacify county schoo" officials who are up in arms over the charge. Ralph Webster Agrees R. Webster, superintendent of schools, in this county agreed with the stand taken by David ' S. Jenkins, superintendent of schools in Anne Arundel,County which furnishes many students to the university. Jenkins said the statements "rankle the souls of school principals and county superintendents. Jenkins, in a public letter, posed the following questions to Dr. Elkins: Has the university evaluated the instruction in mathematics, now-be ing given by instructors, at the university? Has the university made efforts to improve the quality- of its instruction? Has an attempt been made through examination of high school records to predetermine the possible success of entering students? What university prepared the teachers who are responsible for the lack of preparation of the 35 per. cent who failed? Have university officials conferred with the principals of the secondary schools so that attempts might be made where necessary to improve the quality of instruction in the secondary schools? Jenkins said the situation as to failures will never change until Lhere are closer relations between the university and public-school officials. No Wholesale Condemnation "I suppose the deans' statements as to the number of failures a"re correct," Dr. Elkins said 'today. 'But if these statements suggest a wholesale condemnation of the pubic schools, then it is regrettable that they were made. "A number of factors are involved. I do not believe that all the fault lies with the public schools." Kill Of Deer Slackens Off In District Final Two Days Will Sec Hunting Activity On Increased Scale The deer kill slacked off again today in Allegany County with .only five bucks -reported killed. The four-day total was 391' at ndonl. Five deer were checked' in at the State Police Barracks in LaVale with four of them being downed in Allegany County and the fifth in Garrelt County. Paul Naielrod, RD 3, killed a 10-poinl, 118 pound buck on Shriver's Hill; E. R. Anderson, 856 Sperry Terrace, 100-pound spike buck on Evitls Mountain; Donak Dalri, RD 3, seven-point, 110 pounc buck on Dan's Mountain; Davic Durst, 316 Crawford Street, seven point 120 pound , buck on Wills Mountain. E. W. Brubaker, 25 Tor race Road, Baltimore, killed i nine-point, 140 pound buck or Meadow Mountain in GarretlCoun ty. One At Shipway's . Only one buck was checked in at Shipway's Inn on Green Ridge Mountain, according to Graydon "Swede" Dunlap, deputy game warden. Ivan D. Bohrer, Hagers town, killed an eight-point, 117 pound buck in the White Sulphur section of Green Ridge Mountain. Dunlap said there were not near ly as many hunters out today as during the first two .days of th season. The final two days, tomor row and Saturday will probablj find the hunting pressure almos as heavy as the opening day, Dun lap said. No one has topped the two largest kills reported Tuesday in District 1, which comprises Alle gany, Garrett, and Washington counties. Noel Kinser of Oldtown downed a 210-pounder for the top weight in this county while M. E Smith of Hagerstown, killed a nine- point buck which dressed out al 215 pounds Tuesday. The largest bag made yesterday was a 14-point, 180-pound buck, slain by Herbert Hart of Keyser on reported to the Maryland State Police barracks in LaVale. Lewis' Store in Oldlown report- d (he largest number of kills for the day, 19, followed, by 17 at Shipway's Inn on Green Ridge. Gain Of Two Official Washington County totals changed the second day totals for Allegany County to 86 instead of the unofficial 8.1 reported yesterday. The shift brought the two- Dr. Elkins also agreed with Jen- day total to 332 and yesterday's that "there is a need for! additional 49 pushed the record coordination of, and belter amount to an unofficial 381. Washington County's stations at Mt. Royal, Clearspring and Hancock had 60 kills listed for Tuesday with eight being slain in Allegany County and three in neighboring Garrett County.

Garrett reported 170 bucks killed on the second day of the season for an unofficial total of 358 for the kins more understanding between, the public schools, colleges and universities ol Ihe stale.

Minke it appears that Garrett may surpass Allegany': total for the first half of the deer season. Allegany and Washington combined for 69 kills on the third day with 20 being reported in the conn ty cast of here. Actually 23 bucks v/ere weighed at the Washington county stations of Hancock and Clearspring, but only three at Hancock were killed in this county.

Laborllnions Await Plans For Uniting o Action To Be Taken As Result Of CIO-AFL Joining Nationally In this area no move has been made to affect the "marriage" of Ihe American Federation of Labor Unions and the Congress of Industrial Organizations on a local or. district basis. Officials of (he largest AFL and CIO unions said they arc \vaitin.g for word from their international offices as to the actual mechanics of the integration. James W. Stein, president of Local 26, United Rubber Workers. (CIO) said his union expects to hear from international headquarters in about a week. Different Joint Groups Today there are several groups of AFL and CIO unions including the Western Maryland Industrial Union Council, CIO and Allegany Building Trades Council. Local 1874. Textile Workers Union of America, (CIO), one of the largest unions here, for a number of years has not been affiliated with ihe Western Maryland Industrial Union Council of the Maryland and D. C. Industrial Union Council. Under the merger, when it is. extended to a local level, the textile workers will probably again become a part of the new labor organization. As far as having a county district or state organization o£ the AFL-CIO unions, little has been announced along this line from the historic convention in New York; Some Independents In this section, many of the or-, ganized workers belong to independent unions, such as. the railroad brotherhoods and the United Mine Workers, and will not be affected by the merger. . On a national scale, the "marriage" will have more affect on the members of the United Paper Workers of America, a CIO union that has 50,000 members. Em- ployes of the Luke Mill of the West Virginia Pulp and Paper,Company belong to it. Under the new system, the CIO paper workers will be joined with the much larger AFL International Brotherhood of Pulp, Sulphite, and Paper Mill Workers which has a membership of 148,000. . :: The CIO Textile Workers Union of America up to this time lias been the predominate organization in its field with.325,000 members Its AFL' : component, the Unitec Textile Workers of America, has 90,000 members. : Teamsters Industrial ; ,' The Teamsters, Chauffeurs, Warehousemen and Helpers Union 1 which has 1,400 members locally, is one of the largest labor organizations in the country. With 1,400,000 belonging, t.h< Teamsters chose to enter the industrial union division. This type of union organizes and represents an entire plant. AFL crafts unions represent specific trades. C. E. Stutzman, business agent of Local 453, Teamsters and Chauffeurs, pointed out that Dairywork- ers Union 924 here represents entire plants. Whatever the mechanics of the integrated AFL-CIO organization, the procedure will prove very interesting during the next year. In the past several years, however, both CIO, AFL and independent unions have worked together Mlitically through the Labor Unity Conference.
