PAGE TWO THE EVENING SUN, HANOVER, PA. FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 7. 1051 LITTLESTOWN LIONS HEAR ABOUT JAPAN LITTLESTOWN SOLDIER RETURNS FROM KOREA Elmer W. Gall, World War !i Vet, Back From Orient, Tells Of Japanese Efforts —Other News LITTLESTOWN—Elmer W. Gall, veteran of World W'ar II and prisoner of war, who returned last week from a second hitch with the army in Japan in time to resume his duties as teacher of social studies and guidance at the Littlestown Junior-Senior High school, was an impromptu speaker at a meeting of the Lions club held last night at Bankert’s restaurant. Mr. Gall was a member of the club prior to his being recalled to active duty, and the first meeting which he attended since his return provided an opportunity for his fellow Lions to a-sk him questions about existing conditions in Japan. He explained the Japanese people have gone all out for democracy as taught them during the occupation, and during the recent elections they campaigned seriously and got the vote out much better than we ourselves do in America. He also said that the people in general, having been taught democracy, are unable to understand the MacArthur situation. Mr, Gall spoke of visits to the schools of Japan, of the morale of the troops, whose first thought is “to get home.” His work was in a redistribution center and he was able to observe first hand the reaction of the troops entering and returning from combat. He also said that war materials are reaching their destination much better now that when fighting was first begun in Korea. The club accepted an invitation to attend the fourth annual Charter Night celebration of the Taneytown Lions Club to be held on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at Basehoar’s restaurant.

CHICAGO GRAIN CHICAGO, Sept. 7 (AP>—Prices firmed in all pits on the Board of Trade yesterday after the market had shown some early hesitancy. Gains ran to a little more than 2 cents in soybeans, but mostly were limited to fractions. The upward movement followed a slight sell-off in the first hour, during which period the recently strong selling squall soon ended, and after that offerings were not too easy to find. Wheat closed S-1% higher, corn 1'»-'■» higher, oats higher, rye (new style) ** to 1 cent higher, soybeans l1'.»-2% higher and lard 3 to 13 cents a hundred pounds higher. BALTIMORE POULTRY Dull.

Lane and Sons, Inc., tennis court engineers from Ardmore. Pa., are in charge. The courts will be of Lanite all-weather asphalt composition and will cover an area of 244 by 120 feet. The site is to the rear of the Boxwood gardens overlooking the athletic field. This type of court consists of a base of crushed stone rolled to a depth of four inches, on top of which is spread a filler of smaller stone. The entire area is then bound with asphalt. The top surface comprises three-fourths of an inch of a composition, or special cold-mix asphalt material. The courts will be surrounded with a curbing of brick set in concrete. A 10-foot Bethani- zed link fence will enclose the court area. At the west end of the courts grandstands will be built from the lumber of oak trees that are being felled. The work is expected to be completed within a month or six weeks and will eliminate the handicap that has hampered the activities of the Prep tennis team because of its lack of facilities for practice and home contests. The 188-year-old building known for many years at the Five Mile House, situated on the Lincoln highway near the intersection of the Spring Grove road, has been nearly razed. All that remains of the historic building is a few feet of wall. The building was owned by L. H. Alwine, local brick and hosiery manufacturer. The house had stone walls about 18 inches thick. Large Stack RHng A smoke stack which will attain a height of about 200 feet is being built by the John E. Baker Company at its new plant on the former Franklin Menges farm in West Manchester township. The stack is being built of concrete. A large tu- \ bular rotating lime burner is being installed at the plant. Local restaurants were swamped! with demands for lunches at noon j yesterday by pupils of the Spring I Grove Joint High school. At several! of the places not all the pupils could be served in the hour they had to \ get their lunch. The reason was the j cafeteria at the school building has i not yet opened. It is expected to be in operation soon. Employes of the State Department. of Highways have been employed | during recent days scraping the 1 berms and opening up gutters along the Lincoln highway and other state roads in this area.
