TWELVE EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1952 Phone 4600 for a WANT AD Taker Innkeepers Buy Inn For The Hired Help "HOT" GAME of Chinese checkers among the help. AP Newsfeatures MT. POCONO, Pa,—After a work- Ing day is done, the hired hands at one Pocono Mountains resort "check in" at their own hotel. Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Strickland, operators of an inn near here, recently bought another nearby hotel for the exclusive use of their 50 employes. The new property consists of two buildings, one with 28 rooms for women workers and the other an eight-room structure housing male help. The larger building contains recreational facilities comparable to those provided for paying guests at the inn—including game rooms, lounges and a cozy fireplace.. The new property Includes plenty of acreage for outdoor fun and relaxation, too. There's a chef to operate the workers' hotel kitchen. A modern cafeteria is being installed. The employers are supplying everything— food, linens, bedding, heat and light. A housekeeper daily checks on everything, to see that top hotel standards are maintained. The Stricklands are no star-gazing idealists but pleasant, hardworking individuals who combine their philanthropy with sound reasoning. As Ed Strickland put it: "Most of our employes come from nice families and are used to nice things. And a hard day's work doesn't seem so hard if you can relax afterward in comfortable surroundings. "So this proposition works both ways.. The 'kids' are happier, and happy people do better work. And there's less turnover in hired hands, which means more efficiency and a better deal for our own hotel guests." Missing Short Gap Woman Returns After Five Months Mrs. Carrie'B.

During her unexplained absence, a 15-year-old son* Allen, cared for six other children and "kept house" for the railroader's family.
