"There are an estimated 625,000 anthracite cook stoves In operation in our primary marketing states alone, to say nothing of Canada," the Bulletin points out. "It is true that city or utility gas displayed very large numbers of former anthracite-burning stoves, and that more recently bottled gas has claimed many that were left. Electric ranges have, in turn, displaced many gas stoves. According to the 1950 census of Housing, however, more dwellings cook with coal than with electricity In New Jersey." In addition to what the Bulletin had to say, intelligent housewives by the hundreds in this area are still loyal to the old kitchen stove. "It's always there when ' we need it," they say. "And it's a grand comfort to have around on chilly mornings of spring and autumn when the furnace Is no longer burning. And it always keeps the dampness out of the house. And, how lovely it is in the early hours of the morning, after leaving a warm bed, just to hold your hands over it and feel the current of the warmth go through your body." In short, you can't sell the old kitchen stove short and it'll be around a long time.

GOODMAN'S fact To The Strand Theatre In Shenandoah Kin of Prisoners Sit by TV Sets By ELIZABETH TOOMET NEW YORK (UP)-In one living room a young wife sits alone watching the television screen for a name she recognizes. A 17-year-old boy keeps , inter rupting his homework to ask 'any more names ' His older brother has been in a North Korean prison camp since 1950, These are the families who have watched in vain for the names of their husbands, sons and brothers on the list of prisoners released t Freedom Village. They don't venture far' from their living rooms when' new names are being released. They stay up later than usual for fear of missing a name, ' - Everybody's watching and wait ing,", sighed Mrs. Edward Brown. I keep thinking somehow he 11 show up. Seems a.i though I d be relieved, even if he was sick." Her son, Harold, 23, has been a prisoner more than two years. Many of the families have had letters recently: For some letters carre instead of the news they hoped for. 'I prayed all day Sunday for some news of Harold," his mother said. Her husband and four of her seven children sat with her in their Manhattan apartment living room Sunday night. The name they waited for never appeared. "Monday morning I got a letter from him, the first in six months," Mrs. Brown said. "He said not to worry about him," In an apartment in Queens, Mrs Mary Jane Shadish, 27, put her two children to bed early each night of the prisoner exchange. Billy, 4, and Mary Elizabeth, 3, don't remember their father, Capt. William R. Shadish, 29, a doctor in the Army Medical Corps. , They are too young to under stand about the prisoner exchange, so I didn't mention it, their pret ty mother said. "I watched television alone." She was watching for names of IS men she's never met. as well as her husband's. He mentioned the names of fellow prisoners in his letters to his wife and suggest ed she write to their families. "One boy was an amputee, and I was sure he'd be sent back, but I . 'didn't see a single name I knew," Mrs. Shadish said. One mother was so embittered by her disappointment she refused to talk about the chance her son could be coming home. "I'm just too tired,'! she said. "So few boys are on the lists. Ii isn't fair."

PP&L Company Gets Achievement Award 'The Pennsylvania Power and Light Company last night received the Howard G. Ford Award for outstanding achievements In distribution and selling. Presented annually by the Sales Managers Association of Philadelphia, the award was made at the association's annual dinner. Charles E. Oakes, president of the PP&L, accepted the award for ' the company from Charles M. Hodell, vice-president of the Sales Managers Association. The company-won the award for an outstanding 1952 sales campaign, "Electrify for Freedom." G. A. Price, president of Westing-house Electric Corp., as guest speaker, called the creative and aggressive selling activities of the PP&L an answer to the-problem of our expanding capitalistic economy. In serving its 28-county service area, Mr. Price stated: "It has encountered every variety of market, every variety of selling conditions, and it has done well with all of them." He said the PP&L ten-year post war expansion program will cost about one-third of a billion dollars. He pointed out that many companies reduce sales budgets when sales begin to drop. Calling this the time when intensified1 selling and promotion are needed most, he claimed creative taxation could overcome this tendency. This simply a tax law that will permit companies to set up funded promotional reserves as tax-exempt costs In good years for spending in lean years. More than 800 people, including PP&L executives, Westinghouse executives and members of the Sales Managers Association of Philadelphia, attended ''the award dinner. This was the Sales Managers Association's 42nd gathering. Organized in 1910 to exchange ideas and per fect techniques in distribution and belling, the association decided in isms to nonor a company in tne United States which they felt had done the most along these lines. The result was the Howard G. Ford Award, named after the man who served as association secretary for 26 years. The first award was presented to Philadelphia Coke Company. Since that time the honor has been given to such companies as Ralton Purina Company, Nash Kelvinator- Company, Scott Paper Company, Philco Corp., United States Rubber Company and E. I. Du Pont De Nemours & Company. M. Sidney Lebair. president of the association, welcomed the group to last night's gathering.

A Caracas explorer, Capt. Charles C. Baughan, is prepared to fly in week-enders over the impenetrable jungle for a look at a region where gold and diamonds abound and where the world's highest waterfall, Angel Falls, can be found. Venezuela last year produced $10,000,000 worth of diamonds and most of then come from tie virgin Gran Sabana fields. Large quantities of gold nuggets were also yielded by the plateau's rivers The Gran Sabana is said tc ,be the only place in the world where diamonds are found with alluvial gold. Vast quantities of iron, nickel, manganese, and other minerals have been discovered. No Restrictions The Wide prairies of the Gran Sabana, dominated by lofty mountains, are a cattleman's paradise. The climate is pleasant and the rivers abound in fish some weighing up to twenty pounds, i Long closed to exploration and settlement because of the surrounding jungle, this "Land of Tomorrow" os Baughan calls it, is now being prepared to receive qualified settlers. Cottages are planned where visitors can look over the prospects at $15 a day per head for accommodations and meals. No discrimination against foreigners exists id Venezuela. The country is underpopulated and it wants both settlers and investors. There are no regulations against outsiders establishing their own business or buying property.
