31 MEND NEW POST OFFICE HERE REPUBLICAN TO BROADCAST THROUGH WGBI THE SCRANTON REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY, JANUARY 18, 1927 tt S. OFFICIALS RECOM This Foolish 1 I Wokld - J By R. L. Wheeler Gowanus! Gowanus: What ARB you grovelling about on the office floor for? 'Wiggling your arms' and squirming! How do you expect father to keep you in clothes? Oh, you're practicing Channel wlmming, are you? I Bee. Xou certainly are one ambitious youn man. Just what kind of a stroke is that you are using, Gowanus? Father is interested. Not the Australian Crawl? Well, that's good. I'm getting rather tired of the Australian crawl, myself. We hundred - per - cent Americans shouldn't be dependent on the Australians every time we swim a V - channel. By the way, just what channel are you swimming? The Irish ChRnnel? The English Channel? The Straits of Gibraltar? The Bosphorus? The Delaware river? Come on, now, Gowanus, tell papa. Oh, you won't, hey? You won't I Come here, little one. I would have speech with thee. . . . (Smack) GOWAXPS: "BAW - AV - W! BOY, e ONTHS, TO SWIM ATLANTIC CEAN FOR GOD, FOR COUNTRY XD FOR TALE!" "Well, of all things! For God, for country and for Vale, eh? Young man, you'll swim the At lantic for Mr. R. L. W. and your mother, the typewriter, or not at all! Have I made myself clear on that point? (Smack) I realize, Gowanus, that you are a rather unusual child, but In this matter of mentioning us as your inspiration, I've got to be firm. Very firm.. One does XOT swim a channel (or an ocean, strait, estu ary, bay or canal) except for one's parents or children. You don't happen to have a child, do you, Gowanus? No? Not one? Ah, well, that is your little cross. You must bear it as best you can. But you have a father, Gowanus, and a mother. She comes of a very fine old family? Gowanus. . One of the first Under woods to come into the Republican office. She has had , many affairs, of course, but if you look closely you can see that a!r of faded gentility that is always noticeable about a great lady. She has had a glorious past, Gowanus. Many a young reporter has wooed her, but In vain. lere she nits, Gowanus, with Kit faded black ribbon. And you talk about swimming the Atlan tic ocean tor una, ror country ana f!br Yale! Young man, you'll swim the Atlantic ocean for something practical. The typewriter ribbon your mother has now won't even write, "The body of an unidenti fied woman was found on a park bench yesterday morning at 3:45 o'clock,'' and when a typewriter ihbon sinks as low as that, something ought to be done. You owe something to us, too. We Just mention by way of comment that we could use $25,000 to good advantage. Yes, we think if we just sat right down and concentrated, we could find a way to spend at least ?2, 995.15. " The $4.85, Gowanus, would be yours to do with as you pleased. Now that you are completely sold on that proposition (as we men of affairs say), papa confesses that he's rather relieved you aren't boing to swim the English Channel. Of course one meets some awfully nice girls in the Channel, but there's always such a crowd. They tell me social standards in the Channel have been lowered since the days of the Ederles and the Barrets. One can't tell much about a girl's rating in the haut monde, when she's covered with eighteen pounds of lard. Papa would be VERY sorry to see you fall Into the hands of a design ing woman somewhere between Dover and Cape Griz Nez. You know so little of life in the English Channel. should worry every minute, fear of having to make a trio for to Paris and haul you out of the Quartier Latin. They tell me these dangerous French sirens positively haunt the Channel, looking for just such nice, fresh - But the Atlantic is perfectly safe. No, we don't Intend to follow you in a rowboat. Papa doesn't like the ocean. But remember, no catching rides on transatlantic liners unless they fly the house colors of Wayne B. Wheeler! You will start, of course, from New York, with the municipal band playing "Down Went Me - Ginty" or possibly "Asleep in the Deep.' Shall its have .Mayor Walker down to see us throw you in, all gawmed up with but - - ter? Of course we shall. It vou feel yourself getting tired on the way over, just say, "I'm doing this for the, glory of papa's All - American Underwood" and I am sure that renewed strength will come to you. If it doesn't, no matter. We shall mffr!lv run over some day and drop a wreath off the Irish coast. By the way, I suggest that you land on the Irish coast, Gowanus, nmwhfr around Oueenstown. say. Just walk up the beach sing ling "God save tne inr ana i sra sure you will be made very much at home. ivint' that? Pay your pas sage back? Well, of all the un - filial brats!

Deck rails were crowded wittr "gobs" and a capacity passenger list. , From start to finish of the evening on the ship there was not a dull moment. A most complete paraphanalia that brought reminders at every turn of a cruise in reality. From Admiral Worthington Scranton, . down to Captain Martin P. Kennedy and the entire crew, the guiding forces were attired befitting the complements of a modern steamship. All about the auditorium were the flags of fleets, honest to goodness life preservers, the bell that "Jolly Tar," W. J. Barriscale tapped frequently, and other adornments, giving the interior the duplicate in appearance to the first and second decks of craft da luxe playing between different ports. At 7 bells, land lubbers and tourists walked the gang plank to the ship. Morning mess was served with bacon waves and hurricane eggs on the bill of fare. The Boy Scout land enlivened the occasion with popular airs. Jack Davis, Frank Sutch, Gordon Evans and others led the singing on board. "Sti salts wUh lots ef pep," the Premier Qlntet added to their reputation as vocalists. Captain Kennedy awarded gifts to trippers that broufht back memories of the New England tour last September. Able Seaman LlwellyB Jones played "The Bells of St. Mary's," on the organ. A group of six youngsters, the pick of WhaJen's Follies, entertained with dances.

Fanelli Brothers, of the Mexican Navy, put on an act called "Hot Tornale." The final wlndup feature was the inimitable Larry Sharkey, of New York, humorist and Irish story teller. The Tripper re turned to the port and dropped anchor shortly before 11 bells. The af fair was voted a screaming success. 2g - tVn HELD UNDER BAIL ON ' CHARGE OF THREATS Charged with threats to kill and car rying concealed weapons, David Craven, Olyphant councilman, was held under $1,500 bail at a hearing last night before Squire John W.

Mellon And tfew - rSale of Present Land And Structure Favored Olyphant Site Bill Passed By GEORGE W. COMBS HIS New York Avenue. Wtahlngton News Bureau, WASHINGTON, Jan. 17. Scranton s included in the list of cities of the country which have been recommended by the Joint Committee on Public Buildings of the Treasury and Postoffice Departments for a new Federal building filed with Congress today, which will reward the efforts of Representative Laurence Watres for. his long struggle to bring this about. New BnllCng - and Site The report suggests a new building and site for Scranton at a cost of $2,270,000. The sugcestion is maje that the present building and site at Scranton be sold. The report states that the present building and site hasi been valued at tl, 000,000. The report filed with Congress today did not follow the recommendation of the Treasury Department engineer, who made an inspection at Scranton. This representative suggested the purchase of additional ground and the enlargement of the present building. His estimate of th cost of the additional ground was $400,000. The site he had reference to faces on Linden street, 101 feet b7 235 feet. He also suggested further that 60 feet frontage on Washington avenue will cost $600,000 and that the improvements thereon amount to $350,000. The report points out that "the addition proposed by the Treasury Department's representative on Linden street would appear to be separated from the present site by an alley." He does not state whether or not this alley could be concluded In the "site." Continuing, the report said, "a better solution of the difficulties In Scranton would be to purchase a new site and erect a new building sufficient In sire to accommodate the government's needs, and sell the present site and buildings. Would Bring 81? Pries Another argument against the enlargement of the present building Is given as the following paragraph In the report: "According to the price asked for land adjoining this building, both on Washington avenue and Linden street, especially Washington avenue, where adjoining property Is held at $10,000 a front foot and the government site Is 160 feet on Washington avenue, It would seem that the present building and site would bring a considerable sum of money." The erection of a new building on a new site of sufficient size to care for all the activities of the government, the need for quarters In West Scranton would be materially reduced and a large part of the force assigned there could operate from the new building, the report suggests. The rental to be saved on that basis would be $3,500 for the Post Office 1r. addition to the cost Incidental to a divided force. Also the rent paid by the Treasury Department and the Vet erans Bureau, amounting to $8,299.50 could be saved, making a total of approximately $6,800 for rentj exclusive of other savings that would result from a more economclal handling of the mail. "After a careful consideration of all of the conditions in Scranton good judgment dictates that serious consideration be given to the project of the sale of the present building and site, snd the purchase of a new site and the erection of a new building thereon sufficient in Klze to accommodate all of the activities as set forth above. Growth of Scranton Cited Some Interesting statistics showing the rapid growth and development ofj Scranton was included in the report which show that the population of the city has increased from 129, 8G7 in 1910 to 142,266 In 1926. Also .an enormous increase In postal receipts Is shown In the past few years when the receipts In 1915 were $505,756 and for the fiscal year 1926 they amounted to $1,096,739, an increase of 114 per cent.
