Cypher Says $8,000 Would Be Needed for Project. SECURE LABOR THROUGH WPA A Works Progress Administration project to Duild an addition to the fire station on the West Side was suggested to City Council Monday night by Jesse A. Cypher, spokesman for the New Haven Hose Company. He recited the need for enlarged quarters lor the firemen and the band, pointing out that the Volunteers are compelled to rent space for storage of camping and other, equipment they own. His views were corroborated by J. L. Leichliter, who said that present facilities are too limited. "We have the poorest equipped fire station in the State," Mr. Cypher said. He declared that it would require approximately $8,000 for materials under a WPA project. Mayor Ira D. Younkin said that he saw the need for a fire station on the East Side ol the Youghioghenv River but declared that Connellsville's first and major need Is a new bridge, after which there should be constructed a tire station on the East ride of the river. "We won't know just where to build a new fire station until the new bridge comes through," Mayor Younkin said. The volunteers' spokesmen said that even though a new station would be constructed on the East Side the one on the West Side would still be required. In this Mayor Younkin agreed but expressed the hope that the new station would be able to take care of the limited facilities. H. S. Debaters Appear Before Rofary; Public May Hear Them Monday Members of the Connellsville High School debating team gave the Rotary Club Thursday an indication of how they will present the pros and cons of the question of substituting the unicameral for the bicameral legislative system in the states when they are matched against other high schools In the Forensic League competition.

Washington's Crossing Park Tourist Goal HARRISBUKG, Feb. 18 Did George Washington really stand up in his boat when he crossed the Delaware ,on Christmas night of 1776? ' Most school children, familiar with West's stirring fainting, believe he did. But historians say that the great American commander more likely sat down in the boat like a good sailor. But whatever the details of the successful expedition against the Hessians of Trenton, there is no doubt as to where it todk~place. That location is now Washington Crossing Park, Bucks county, an historic shrine maintained by the State of Pennsylvania for the public. Washington Crossing Park, the itate Publicity Commission points out, is on the west shore of the Delaware River along State route 32, about midway between Yardlcy and New Hope, and within easy driving distance of Philadelphia and other eastern cities. Entering the park from Philadelphia, the visitor passes first the actual point of embarkation, just north of the old inn and opposite the southern point of Taylor's island in the river. Bet-ween this island and the mainland, the famous Durham boats used in the crossing were secreted before the American Army set out. A brownstone monument erected by the Bucks County Historical Society marks the spot. Just back from the river nearby stands the tall granite monument erected by the Patriotic Order Sons of America in 1916. Close by also stand « memorial flagstaff and a gateway of native stone giving entrance to the broad Valley of Conception where the troops were assembled for the action. Picnic grounds and a large camping site with an artesian well have been provided here for motorist*. Four miles north lies the Bowman's Hill section of the pack, where sentries were stationed by Washington wliile the army was at the crossing. Hcr! is a memorial tower more than 100 feet high, erected by the Washington Park Commission in 1830 to honor the soldiers stationed nearby more than 150 years ago. Climbing the 123 steps of this monument, the energetic visitor is rewarded by a broad view of the Delaware River valley north and couth. Nearby is the famed Thompson- Nceles House, built in 1701, and not far away is a cemetery where 20 unknown Continental soldiers lie buried. A stone monument marks the burial ground, while a memorial flagstaff stands nearby. A plan was recently announced to link Washington Crossing and Valley Forge by a 50-mile line of flowering dogwood trees along connecting roads.
