The Freehold Chapter, Izaak Walton League, the local branch of America's great outdoors organization, held its annual meeting last not the law hinder thee from eating and Friday night in the Municipal Build- drinking, and rejoicing and adorning thv- i and it was largely attended. A representative of the Siate Department of Labor was in Freehold, Monday of this week, inspecting wo.-k-injt conditions of women. The law is that women shall not work more than eight hours a day. The object of the visit was to check up on the number of hours actually served by the women workers in the Borough. The violation of this important rule carries the penalty of a tine of S50 for the first offense. This essential legislation is protective to women. $100,000 APPORTIONED TO HOSPITALS.

The law, as one justly observes, brings in a great bill, but nothing wherewith to discharge it. It sets the soul a working, but so as to neglect the proper nourishment necessary for it. No wonder, therefore, that she is destitute of sufficient strength; chat she faints, and never comes to the right mark. There is no such thing as making amends bv the law. We must go directly to Christ, and receive first the grace and strength required, out of his fulness by faith. Dear dying Lamb', thy precious blood Shall never lose its ponvr.

Freeholder Polhemus inquired about the Freehold Hospital, and was advised that it is not incorporated, and for that reason could not be a recipient of the public funds. A letter from the State Highway Com mission was read approving further ac reported that there was a strong sentiment here, that Monmouth County was not getting a quota of game in proportion to the amount of license fees collected, and requested that the policy of the Commission in the matter be explained, so that there would be a better feeling and understanding with the average sportsman.

In a .-ub.-equent letter. Mr. B.e-cher. argued that fishing for anything, whether any of the protected fi.-h were taken or not. disturbed spawning beds of bass, and urged the Commission to favor a law prohibiting any fishing whatever, prior to the, open bass -ea.-on ; that it wa.-very difficult to detect whether night-fishermen had any game fish in their po-se.-sion. even if they should be aonroaehed. COMMISSIONER Bl RLINOTON S LETTER. Later. President Burlington of the State Commi.-.-ion wrote that it was his opinion that the sportsmen of the State would never stand for a law which would prohibit nil fishing in the lakes before the 15th of June. He wrote: "It is impossible for one warden to catch every violator, and it behooves the Izaak Walton League and other sporting associations to cooperate with the warden and if necessary send delegates to the ponds at night to see that illegal fishing is ! stopped. I his is a system which has been put in vogue in Bergen county where the sport-men realize that it is impossible for one warden to be able to -top al! vialations. "Regarding game and fi.-h distribution, would say that every county in the State gets an equal ? mount. It is unreasonable to think that every hunter that purchased a license in Monmouth county, confines his hunt ing to that county. If we furnish fi.-h and game on the basis of the amount of licen-e money recc-'ved from each county, Essex count y which is -mall in area, would receive twice as much fish and game as Monmouth. So vou see how impractical it would be on the basis of license money, and Monmouth would certainly suffer, as we receive about twice as much from Essex as we do from Monmouth. "It is the writer's opinion that con-i.tions will not ever be satisfactory to everyone in the State until all a--ociations and clubs supply fish and game in their own districts with their own money, help the wardens, control vermin as much as possible and feed birds jn the winter. This has been carried out in some section-of the -tate with great success, as the Commi-sion alone with its receipts will never be able to ade- Song," by Awakening" by Johnson.

The receipts during 1928 amounted to $760.56 and the disbursements were $923.70; the total amount in the treasury at the present time is 492.18. A number of communications were read by the secretary, but no action was necessary. Lew Tannenbaum, who was appointed chairman of a committee to plan for a survey of Freehold, reported that he had been informed that the National Real Estate Board furnished blanks for such a survey and they were very complete.

The matter of having such a Isaac Woolslon of Asbury Park, showed his magnanimity the other day. when he got in trouble in Freehold. He was driving his Buick sedan, and struck a Ford car ow-ned and driven by W. Davis, of Freehold, at the intersection of South Street and Park Avenue, Sunday morning:. The Ford was completely wrecked. Mr. Davis, the owner, wanted to be paid for his car.

Five Accidents at Park Avenue THE ELECTRIC FURNACE MAN works 24 hours a day to save you money. D. & L. Economical Heating Co., Inc., 25-31 Broad St. d8-tf The second accident to occur within a half hour at the intersection of South street and Park avenue, Sunday morning, was when the Chrysler sedan owned and driven by John Ratigan of Newark, was struck by a Packard sedan driven by Mrs. Sarah Jammisson of 1623 Har rison Place, Philadelphia. Mrs. Jamis-son was drivimr on a normit. and was accompanied by her husband, a licensed driver and owner of the car. Mr. and Mrs. Jamisson assumed all responsibility for the accident. Residents of that vicinity stated that five accidents occurred at that intersection on Sunday. Record was made of only two. Supposedly the other three were too slight to mention. Charles J. Arliss of East Orange, was adjudged guilty of driving a car while under the influence of intoxicating liquor, early Sunday morning, March 31, when he appeared before Recorder William S Hqimes for hearing last Friday morning lie was arrested at 12.15 Easter Sunday morning on West Main street, by Officer Clancy. He was taken before Dr. H. B Mason for examination. When arraigned later he pleaded not guilty, and requested that the hearing be postponed until the following Friday morning, and the re quest was granted. At the hearing on Friday. Officer Clancy related that he and former officer James Ryan were riding on West Main street when they saw a car parked in front of Finegold's shoe store, and the two men occupants attracted their attention. Of ficer Clancy went over to the car, and in the conversation the men admitted having been drinking liquor. The men said thev had a sister in Freehold, and upon the ad vice of the officer they decided to remain at her home for the night. James Ryan drove their car to the home ot the sister on West Main street, and Officer Clancy followed to pick up Ryan. The two of ficers then drove around the block and and went by the home of the sister. The two men and the car had disappeared, but were seen by Officer Clancy as they were driving on West Main street toward th Park avenue red light. They were going from one side of the street to the other. Officer Clancy overtook them, placed them in his car and brought them to the office of Dr. II. B. Mason. Ryan verified the story related by Officer Clancy, and said that in his opin ion Arliss was unSt to operate a car. Mr. Arliss was accompanied at the time by his brother Walter Arliss, who was arrested at the time and later fined for be ing under the influence of intoxicating liquor in violation of a Borough ordinance. Arliss testified that he and his brother had come to Freeholdto visit his sister, but no one was at home. He had been sleeping in the car for about a half hour when the officer came along. Arliss said that when they left the sister's house after Ryan driving them there, they were look ing for the lunch wagon so that they could cet some coffee. However, they were driving toward West Freehold. Dr. Mason told of making an examina tion and found by the usual methods that Arliss was under the influence of liquor sufficiently to make him incapable of driving. He said Arliss had stopped him earlier in the evening to inquire the loca tion of a house near-by, but when brought to him for examination, said he never saw him before. When he saw Arliss the first time. Dr. Mason said he thought he was under the influence of something, presumably liquor. Recorder Holmes told Arliss that there seemed to be no question from the testi mony given, but that he was guilty of the charge. He imposed a fine of $200 and $11 costs, and revoked his driver's license for two years.
