PAGE TWO SANTA CRUZ SENTINEL, SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA Thursday, February 20. 1936 U DISPUTE ROILS PUD AND LITHUANIA Countries Isolated As Row Develops In Feud By WLADYSLAW BESTERMAV (United Press Staff Correspondent) WARSAW, Feb. 19 (UP). The Polish-Lithanian animosity, created by the status of Vilna, shows no signs of abating as the controversy ends its 17th year. No diplomatic or consular relations have existed between the two countries since 1920 when the Polish occupation of Vilna, the capital of the one-time Grand Duchy of Lithuania, caused the indignation against Poland which has smouldered in Lithuania ever since. So strong is the feeling between the countries over this city that when their respective foreign ministers met in Geneva last year for the first time since the war, the mutual desire for friendly relations was reoorted to have been set at naught because Joseph Beck could not promise the cession of Vilna and Stasys Lozorajtis could not surrender Lithuania's claim to it. s Once a Grand Duchy Vrnm about 1390 until 1773, the year of the first division of Poland between Austria, Russia, and f rus ia Lithuania and Poland had con stituted one state known as the "Kingdom of Poland and Grand Duchy of Lithuania," Thereafter, Viv formed rjart of the Russian Empire until the Versailles Treaty provided for their emergence as autonnmnus and independent states. Since 1920 grass has covered the carefully guarded frontier ot Ml kilometers between the two coun tries. No post or railway connec ilnne pvist todav. The former Rus sian railway line between Vilna and Kovno has been cut two kilometers hnrt of the border on both sides No one may cross the frontier from one countrv to the other. The cause of this unfortunate situation is the so-called Vilna question Whpn Poland retained pos session of this city after 1920 despite the protest from Lithuania and tne thp League of Na tions, the Lithuanians were forced to set up their capital in K.ovno, Wwisinnallv." as they said, until they could regain possession of what they consider their rightful capital Poles Ignore Claims TVio Pnlmi nav no attention to Lith uania's claims. They feel that Vilna is as much Polish as the Lithuanians think it is Lithuanian. Besides, it U fho hirthDlaee of Marshal Pilsud ski. And .what is more important, at his own request his heart was buried there near the grave of his mother. Poland will never give up Vilna or the heart of its national hero this is the sentiment which prevails throughout Poland. Lithuania never will recognize that Vilna is Polish this is the feeling which dominates Lithuania today. Meanwhile, both countries realize that German hopes of expansion to the East are encouraged by the hate existing between them. Mrs. Sara Gerrior Died Tuesday Night At 2d Street Home explained. "The studio thus owning the right to the story makes it possible to bring it to the screen along the lines of its adaptation by Mr. Howard." In other words, Mr. Lewis will have no "say" about how the story shall be presented on the screen. He sold that privilege for a figure not announced. Eddie Mannix, another studio executive said: "Just before Mr. Hays left for New York he approved the film script." The studio, executives said, right now "is going through the regular production procedure." T P.-T. JL OBSERVES IIS Hies Miss Rowena Parsons, chairman of Founder's day for the Gault P.-T. A., took charge of a very pleasing observance of the 38th anniversary of the organization, yesterday afternoon. She presented the Council Mother's Chorus, directed by Madame Yerbury in a group of three delightful numbers: "By the Bend of the River," "Who Is Sylvia" and "Night Call In Granada." Romana Ford gave a pleasing piano solo. A lovely candle lighting service was used in the birthday celebration, and a beautiful cake was festively decorated with daffodils and ferns. Mrs. Meints had charge of the decorations. At a brief business meeting preceding the birthday party, a jitney dinner was planned for the evening of February 28, to be held in the Gault school cafeteria. CARD IS MAILS 13 YEARS EUGENE, Ore. U.R. A postcard mailed in Denver, Colo., on Aug 7, 1S22, by Mrs. Myra Rupert of Eugene has reached here after 13Vi years in the mail. The card was remailed in Corvallis, Ore., just 40 miles from here, on October 11, 1935. SENTINEL NOW 60c MONTH MPROVEMEHTS AT SEACLIFF BEACH RUSHED SEACLIFF, Feb. 19. The future home of R. E. Boes, custodian of Seacliff State Park beach, is assuming shape as the framework is now practically completed. Completion of the retaining wall from the entrance drive to the pier is being made and dirt hauled in behind. This will make an unbroken parking area from the concession buildings to the pier. Stakes for a wide road from Seacliff to Rio del Mar along the beach have been placed by the surveyors and some of the road graded. More results of the efforts of the boys of the CCC camp are shown from the present personnel than from any previous group of boys stationed at the Capitola CCC camp. Large purchases of airplanes, machine guns, and bombs, amounting to more than $3,000,000, were shown by state department figures to have been made in the United States by China during January. A medical census at Enfield, Eng., showed that 50 per cent of the 549 pupils attending the wealthier schools were "below par" while only 25 per cent of the 332 poorer children examined received tnis rating. LAWRENCE MPSEY OE HIT BY AUTO JLJP PAINFULL! INJURED Lawrence Dempsey, 37, of 482 West Cliff drive, received painful, but not serious, injuries early last night when he was struck by a car driven by J. Rinaldi, who lives near the West Cliff drive hotel. The accident occurred at Pacific avenue and Cathcart street, about 7:30. Police said Dempsey walked in front of Rinaldi's car and was struck by the right front bumper. He re- ceived a cut over the left eye and a bruised shin. He was taken by ambulance to the Santa Cruz hospital for emergency treatment and then taken to his home. Dr. Harry Piper administered first aid. Inspector Elmer Geyer and Officer George Cavanagh investigated the accident, but would place no blame. Rinaldi is said to be an artichoke grower with his ranch near the old Cliff Drive hotel. DIVORCE CALLED OFF Mrs. Lena Rogers, who caused suit for divorce to be filed against An-tone Rogers Tuesday, has withdrawn the suit and the couple have agreed to a reconciliation. They had not separated. SENTINEL NOW COc MONTH Mrs. Sara A. Gerrior, mother of Mrs. Maude Byer, rural schools music supervisor, passed away at the home of her daughter, 23 Second street, late Tuesday evening. She had been ill but a short time, death being due to a heart ailment following a light attack of influenza. Mrs. Gerrior was the widow of the late Rev. John Paul Gerrior, pastor of the Elmhurst Presbyterian church of Oakland for 15 years and well known in Santa Cruz where he preached upon a number of occasions. She had for several years been president of the Oakland Presbyterial, an organization of all the Presbyterian missionary soci eties in the San Francisco bay re gion. ; Mrs. Gerrior was a native of Nova Scotia, 78 years of age. Her husband had been a native of Nova Scotia, too, having been a well known evangelist in that province. The couple were married in their home province some 48 years ago, coming to California about 30 years ago. Following her husband's death, Mrs. Gerrior resided in Byron, Contra Costa county, but came to Santa Cruz last October following the ap pointment of her daughter as music supervisor in the schools here. She had already formed a large circle of friends here, being a pleasant, earn est Christian woman, beloved by all who know her. She is survived by her brother, James W. Harris, president of California Street Cable Railroad company of San Francisco; two sisters Mrs. Ella McKean and Miss Maude Harris of San Francisco; two daugh ters, Mrs. Maude Byer of Santa Cruz and Mrs. Elsie Karmann of River side. Mrs. Burton M. Palmer of Saratoga, a former resident of Santa Cruz, is a niece of Mrs. Gerrior. Tentative funeral arrangementis have been made for the Elmhurst church, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock. There will be no local services. The body is at the Wessendorf Mortu ary. "IT CAN'T II APPEN HERE MAY HAPPEN VERY SOON Oil HOLLYWOOD, Feb. 19. Publicity may "force" to the screen at an early date "It Can't Happen Here." Of course, no one in Hollywood suspects that Sinclair Lewis, Nobel literature prize winner, had publicity in mind when he charged that Will Hays, "czar of the films," had banned his book on fascism from the screen. But the fact remains that Hays denies banning it and Louis B. Mayer, vice-president in charge of production for Metro - Goldwyn-Mayer, admils that publicity may make its early presentation on the screen profitable. Meanwhile, it was learned today-plans are going froward for the early screening of the Lewis story. Sidney Howard, noted novelist and playwright, has been engaged to prepare the story for the screen. "The story will follow substantially the same plot as the book," Howard said today. "The studio purchased the book outright from Mr. Lewis while it was in galley proofs," a studio executive STATE SCHOOLS 1 E E Despite continued decreases in the number of children enrolled in the kindergarten and in grades one, two and three, the total state enrollment in the public schols continued to in crease. During 1934-35, tentative data from the annual reports indicate, state en rollments decrease 1711 in elemen tary grades; increase 44,696 in high school grades, 46 in junior college grades, and 41.095 in the totals for all grades. The greatest increase was in the enrollment in evening high school classes. FEDERAL ALLOTMENTS The State Department of Educa tion has been notified by the U. S. Office of Education that it is probable that federal allotments for vocational rehabilitation under the Social Security Act passed by the last congress will become available February 1, 1936.
