FOURTEEN EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker Herman Mills Seeks Election To U. S. Senate Mayor Herman L. Mills of Hagerstown yesterday announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination to the U. S. Senate. MlHs, who entered the Senate race In 1950 but withdrew before the primary, 1« the fourth candidate to announce for the Republican nomination. Rep. J. Glenn Beall of Frostburg; H. Grady Gore, Rockvllle business man, and Paul Robertson of Baltimore already have filed. In announcing hLs candidacy. Mills promised, If elected, to fight "with all my strength the senseless policies of giving away our money to other nations all over the world." He called It a "ridiculous policy of 'give away and throw away'" and said if sent to the Senate, "no power on earth will keep me quiet on these things." "The Irresponsible dreamers who now control our government go about the world giving away your money and mine to any nation that will take It, While in our own country we ne«d schools, hospitals, asylums, correctional institutions, roads and homes for our people," the mayor said. Except for his brief run In the 1950 Senate race, Mills Is relatively unknown In Maryland politics, although his economy measures have received some note. Mills was elected mayor In 1949 and has prided himself on reducing Hagerstown's budget to one of the lowest points in the city's recent history. His term ends next year. He said his decision to enter the Senate race has not been a hasty one. "I have talked to many people from all parts of the state of Maryland and all parts of the United States. It is clear that the great majority of our people are tired of voting people out of office only to find they have voted someone else into office who does no better when he gets to Washington." He said «ntirely too much money te being taken from the people in taxes.. "Stop the giving away, throwing nway and waste," he added, "and these terrible taxes will not be necessary."

Unintentional 'Blackout' Follows Failure Of Power SINGAPORE—W) — Intentional blackouts, a daily measure introduced to conserve Singapore's limited electric power, are so much of iin expected thing that It's difficult to recognize a genuine, unintentional power failure. At 1 p. m. the other day in a Singapore residential section, the fans stopped and Ice in home refrigerators began to thaw. By 7 p. m. there was still no power. Someone, suspicious that this "blackout" had lasted longer than •usual, dscided to call the power utation. This was the first word that the city's electricians had received of the accidental failure. 2 H 5 Y 7 T 4 I ~& I ~2 T 1 O 5 J 3 A 4 I 2 Y 3 E 5 O 3 C 3 T 7 B 6 I 7 T 4 O 7 M & A 8 Y •i P 5 V 6 L 7 A 4 S 'i R 4 A 6 P 8 T 5 R 2 Y X L, 6 M 7 S 8 U '3 E 4 T 6 C 4 R 4 N 6 IT 4 Q 7 A 8 R o L V S 5 S 2 A 5 O 4 S 2 M a A 6 i 3 H 8 O a V 8 H '/ I 8 L •i E 7 N S O — 7- S 5 E 3 S 4 N 8 D 6 B 3 P. — 4 U 2 P 6 L 7 L 4 o 2 Y 7 U 6 H 7 N 4 I 'i S 7 A 8 Y 4 C 8 R 3 L 5 F 6 L 5 W 7 S observatory, but these long' ago were filled to capacity. When the administrators began their cataloging work, they found thousands of technical books, classics magazines, catalogues, and other papers over-flowing the shelves once intended to hold them, and stacked on furniture which crowded all the rooms. x After he became a widower, friends said Dr. Hoffman no longer tried tc keep order, inside or out. and the mansion, once a showplace, had deteriorated badly.

Well, two estate administrators in Rochester are up against a similar problem. Their monstrous task is to go through the' worldly possessions of the late Dr. G. E. Hoffman. Dr. Hoffman's belongings are in a more ordered state than those of the Collyers, but he exceeded the brothers in, one respect. He filled two mansions, Instead of one, with his stuff. Both the two-and-one-half story brick mansions in which the doctor lived for much of his life, and a. smaller brick home where he lived for several years until it became more crowded than the first home, are jammed with articles, many of considerable value. A friend said that Dr. Hoffman returned to the larger home for the last two or three years of his life, apparently because the smaller house had become even more crowded than the first. This friend described the late doctor as g "literary and medical genius" whose interests caused him to go on buying new devices, books, antiques and other items even though he had trouble finding any place to put them. Dr. Hoffman was described as being avidly Interested not only in medical science, but also in astronomy, psychology, politics, literature Goodbye Heartburn -Hello Quick relief for sour stomach. gas. acid indigestion. Still only lOc. TUMS FOR THE TUMMY mechanics, world affairs, photo graphy and music. A dozen violins are items which the administrators have listed among the contents of the Hoffman mansion. There were dozens of cameras, ranging from tiny vest- pocket v size to large professional type cameras. * One of the first type of Speed Graphics with a variable back is among the collection. Expensive lenses, developing equipment frames, films and slides have been catalogued. A photograph enlarger, still in its original wrappings and bearing a $175 price tag, is another item Other .possessions believed to have considerable value include Dr Hoffman's collection of pistols and rifles. Everything from muzzle- loaders to modern high-powerec guns were found in a small closet The doctor's interest in music was evidenced by hundreds ol records found in his residences He radios, frcm models, anc all of them were still in his possession when he died. The doctor, who had lived alone for many years following the death of his wife, had a glass-domed observatory which once had been the show-place of the larger mansion Prom this observatory, he studied the heavens through a 40-powered telescope.
