Metal spinning on a scale of magnitude that is believed to establish a world's record for all time in ceneral industrial operation, is now in j progress at the Gray Manufacturing Company plant, formerly Gray Tele- phone Pay Station. During the past few days James Need, a master metal spinner, has been engaged in "spinning" anemostats 72 inches iivdiameter. They are part ot a contract requirement lor tne Anemostat corporation ot America. Anemostats are high velocity air diflusers assuring draftless distribution of air at any velocity. Of necessity the anemostat must be a smooth surface, hence the necessity of the hand spinning operation. During the process of "spinning" metal the fiat disc is formed into the shaped design by means of various tools and forms. Revolving at a high speed and with the aid of a bat-like stick, the metal Ls turned down to the mold desired. The metal in this particular instance is aluminum. Every piece is hand made. This is because sizes, shapes and demands vary- Volume production by press operations is not possible at this time. Six More Lose Liquor Licenses, Total is 45 New Haven, April 8, (AP.)

Elsewhere in the vast yard, swarming with activity comparable to World War days, four other destroyers were under construction, including the "Hughes." a sister ship to the "Sims," scheduled for a June launching. Millerton, N. Y., April 8. (AP.) The gay sport of Glawackus hunting shifted today from Glastonbury, Conn., where woodsmen unsuccessfully tracked a weird bcastie on several occasions last winter, to Ihis eastern New York region just across the Connecticut line. The New York hunters had no better luck than their Connecticut brethren, however, and the day's foray ended on a sour note. " Miss Helen Pryce of Pittsfield, Mass., involuntarily provided the sour note when she screeched at the first sight of the Glawackus while being lowered by rope into Indian Oven cave, the Glawackus den. The Glawackus scuttled away as the young woman yelled, but not before she got a description of the animal which some residents of the Hudson Valley section and western Connecticut blame for mutilating animals, particularly dogs, the past two years. . The description which Miss Pryco gave to the Glawackus posse of 27 men and women branded the creature as "a cross between a bear and a lynx" with "boar-like tusks." It was about three feet long, she added. The Glawackus was named by the Spelunkers, a cave-crawler society. Local residents, including many hardened Glawackus hunters, breathlessly awaited news of the safari near Millerton, N. Y.. Saturday and showed keen disappointment . when the hunters returned with no quarry. When the information was passed around that the best the hunters could do was report seeing something that looked like something else, some of the comment here included: "Yeah? Do you really think Cincinnati has a chance for the pennant this year?" Another exclaimed "Looks like a cool Easter, Would you wear a fur coat with this hat I just bought. Not that the hat reminds me of the Glawackus, but I thought' Still another, rushing home as if he could not wait to give the news to the family, burst out "Golly, I was sitting in the 'movies and remembered I didn't shut off the gas!" One old graybeard, offering documents to prove it. denied the Spelunkers had anything to do with naming the Glawackus. "It says right here in the paper that somebody on a Hartford newspaper named the crittur. They say he'll live it down in lime." 0M.Y i&is vnnci 2 M Gil'5' at jCavQlu 5 IN GREATER HARTFORD hj m i mil mm., JJ.M,jiiifwiffli'yjff j, . 1 1 i.i ii iimpiii iy mmimw 1 t ' a" I .vj (Zavalie'c ELECTRIC RANGE THIS IS THE "MARLBOROUGH" MODEL Here is truly a LA VERY SCOOP! !
