What the Dunkirk-Fredonia Community Needs: During the last week the OBSERVER has been, running brieU interviews with residents oi; Dunkirk and Fi-edonia giving their views on what the community needs most. Because it is impossible to contact every interested resident personally, an invitation is extended to residents of the two communities, to write their opinions and mail them to the newspaper office. The manuscripts must be signed and give the address o£ the writer as well as' his or her occupation and length of residence here. They should be maile'd ^o City Editor, Evening Observer, Dunkirk, N. Y. Today's interviews: Julius Welnberg, merchant, 533 Washington avenue resident 41 years: "Dunkirk needs cooperation." Arthur B. Townc, attorney, 528 Central avenue resident 33 .years: "I think that Dunkirk and Fredonia, being so closely associated, that what is an improvement for one is also an improvement for the other. If industries are brought to either community it will, benefit both. Therefore, a good strong Chamber of Commerce, supported by both communities, would be highly advantageous to both." Leo J. Allarcl, U.S.E.S. manager, 181 Temple street, Fredonia,-resident three months: "Dunkirk has a beautiful natural beach, which appears to have been badly neglected. It could stand a good cleaning up," Mrs. Thomas Dlllenburr, clerk, 318 Deer street, resident 23 years: 'A Y. M.C.A. would improve the: community and would centralize recreation for young people." Frederick Rosing, merchant, 319 Woodrow avenue: "The streets in Dunkirk are in -bad shape. They could stand some resurfacing." STATION MANAGER SHOWS HOW HE WARNED CROWD AT BURNING GAS STATION Mayville, Oct. 11--The supreme court jury was told Tuesday morning by the man who managed the Richfield bulk station in Jamestown when fire swept it in 1934, that he had done all in his power to keep the crowd away as fire licked the three gasoline tanks, two o£ which later blew i » up. The witness was James G, Joy, now of Pittsburgh, who was recalled to the stand - by Willard Pottle, plaintiffs' counsel, to amplify testimony he gave last week. After Pottle had brought from him admissions that he did not try to turn off valves in the storage tanks or pull electric switches to * cut oK power from a pump motor, Defense Attorney Frederick M. Garfield led him into .a recital of how he van back and forth warning spectators away from the scene. "If the court deems it in propriety to give us your exact words, will'you tel1 us J^t what you said to the spectators?" Garfield asked. "Yes," Joy replied, "I said 'Get the hell off of here.' " The witness illustrated by sweeping-his arm vigorously. . , Joy said between 175 and 200 persons ' crowded onto the Richfield property, before the first firemen arrive* and that he and four other employes were kept busy shooing them away. The plaintiffs who are suing for $120,000 is a consolidated action embracing, two cases of death and two of injury, have charged negligence on the part of the company and its employes. Court recessed for the day at 3. m. Addressing the jury Jus- tice Frank A. James announced that court would recess until 9:30 Wednesday morning out o£ respect to the memory of Nelson J, Palmer; a distinguished member of the Chautauqua County bar, whose, funeral was to be held at 2:30 Tucs'day afternoon. JAMESTOWN FIRM GETS ARMY, NAVY E AWARD Jamestown, Oct. 11-- Captain Thomas G. Reemy of the United States navy informed several hundred plant employes and their families Monday that the. fact that there have been no work stoppages in the Hope's Windows plant and no rejections of manufactured products for the armed services played a major role in the authorization of the Army- Navy E award. Captain Reemy made the presentation of the E pennant to Frank G. Garratt, president of Hope's Windows, on the authorization of James V. Forrestal, Secretary of the Navy. BY JACK G'AVER New York, '(UP)--The -Theatre Guild today made at least five girls happy by announcing the winners of the ¥500 tuition awards to the American Academy* of Dramatic Arts as part of the Guild's observance of its silver anniversary. These are the lucky ones of 300 contenders: Betty Cole, 16,-Wilmington, Del; Eda S. Field, 17, Long Branch, N. J.; Patricia Jenkins, 18, Philadelphia; Reba Tassell, Philadelphia, and Eleanor Shaw, 21, New York city. The scholarships were named after five famous actresses who have been associated closely with the Guild--Helen Westly, Margalo Gilmore, Lynn Fontanne, .Helen Hayes and Katharine Hepburn. Similar scholarships for five young men will not be awarded until aspirants now in the service have an opportunity to qualify. · · * · . The Metropolitan Opera association, announced today that it will start its new season Nov. 27 by playing the same opus that opened its famous opera house in 1883-Gounod's "Faust." It will be an 18-week season, ending April 1. There will be' no new operas. Nine new American singers will appear. . , - · · " · · · A night club is an odd place *to, find a sophisticated crowd making merry with a folk song that is said to have been a favorite of President Lnicoln, but it happens every night at Cafe Society Uptown. Burl Ives, the rover whose collection of folk ballads is almost as large as himself, is responsible. He's in the show there, having calmed his itching feet for the time being, and he never fails to do "The Blue Tail Fly." It is an infectxious ditty and when he-comes to the simple chorus the patrons racket up the .place. You simply sing the line "Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care" three times and close out with the words "my master's gone away." One of the largest crowds ever to jam the place was in fine voice last n-ight to. help owner Barney Josejlhson celebrate the fourth birthday of the club. TROUBLE OVER DISHES . Cleveland (UP) -- Mrs. Anna Rubish, 45, was haled into police court the other day on a charge of assaulting her husband, John, 36, because he failed to wash the dishes while she .was out shopping. The case was dismissed, however, when the husband decided to drop the charge. j KNOTTY LEGAL PROBLEM UNDER PROBATION LAW POSED IN COUNTY COURT Mayville, Oct. 11-- Edward T. Ahlstrom, counsel for 18-year- old John A. Ecker of Celeron, confronted Judge Hugh V. N. Bodine and Assistant District Attorney Sidney T. Hewes with what Is perhaps the knottiest .legal problem they have ever /faced. Ahlstrom questioned the action of a probation officer in.ordering the arrest of one of his charges in Chautauqua^county court Monday. ' Ecker was on probation as a result of a car-stealing conviction when he was arrested in Jamestown on Oct. I and charged with brandishing a pistol in a movie theater; In city court he was held for the grand jury and locked up in Mayville jail. The grand jury indicted him Friday. In the meantime Probation Of- "ficer Lithner Peterson ordered his arrest for violation of proba- tion. Monday Ecker was arraigned in county court and Ahlstrom'Im- mediately contested the validity of the probation officer's warrant, claiming his client could not be accused of a violation until he had been convicted of the offenso on which, the violation was based. This "poser" sent Judge Bodine and Hewes into a hasty perusal of the criminal code, even though both expressed the opinion "the probation 'setup might as well be scrapped if Ahlstrom's argument stood up. Ecker himself sat impassively, by and watched the. proceedings without apparent-interest. While Hewes pondered dismissal of the probation action in the interest of getting things moving Peterson spoke up and announced himself as willing to drop it. Judge Bodine agreed. But only after he had pointed out the development was not in the best interest of the prisoner. The worst that could happen to Ecker OB th* probation complaint, he explained we* . e. »o- journ at the West Coxsackie Vocational school. On the other hand a conviction on th* gun charge would make him eligible for a stiff sentence in state prison as a second offense felon. .
