Bond~at a meeting of 40 forest.ei's yesterday in Allegany County Court House. These public relations messages were carried in talks to school children, service clubs, farm clubs, 4-H clubs, Boy Scouts, Giri Scouts and at county fairs around the four-county district. Bond said that Brook Bodkin, j forest supervisor for Allegany and part of Washington county, wasi one of the most active employes in this program. A new film, "Fire In The Forest," which was prepared in Garrett County, is being shown in many of these programs. One scene shows David T. Davis, this city, driving his 1911 Oakland automobile. Bond called this a film featuring Maryland personnel, with a Maryland fire story for Maryland people. Color slides also are used to aid lecturers. District Forester William H. Johnson praised the newspapers in this four-count;- district for their support in carrying the forest fire prevention message to the people. Bond said that Johnson gets better press support than any other district in Maryland. with Major Hoople Two Foresters Honored Here _ Two Suit Docketed In Union Fuss Healy ten days to answer the suit] from taking over the local's proper- and issued an order restraining him | ty in the meantime.

Today, there is a patent for it. Army Discovers Man's Real Name By NEA Service Major Amos Barnaby Hoople, star of the "Our Boarding House" cartoon in The Cumberland Evening Times, has just won national recognition for an invention he perfected almost 15 years ago.

Thus all that Rovere has a patent on is how he has bored a hole in the saddle, and where he has placed the controls. If anybody wants to carry out the Major's plan to the letter, it's all right with the Patent Office, and they can get a patent, too. Interviewed on the subject of East! Rovere's saddle horn radio, Major Hoople "was tolerant and amused. "Heh-heh," he chortled. "Good luck to Mr. Rovere! We inventors must stick together—har-rtimph!"

They said the national organization retaliated by naming Healy as trustee with powers to seize all records and property of the local. "Such action," says the suit, "is illegal, malicious and without just cause." Judge Duckworth, who began working for the department as a forest war den in 1930, has most recently been a supervisor in tree work. In the depression days of the Civil Conservation Corps he was a .foreman in CCC forestry work. About 1840 he returned to the State Department of Forests and Parks on a full time basis in tree trimming work. He also has served in fire control work,, as a forest guard. A onetime member of the House of Delegates, Duckworth is remembered by oldtlmers as a baseball pitcher of considerable local prominence. Lowman, whose department work has been confined to Hagerstown and the Funkstown area, is retiring because he has reached his 70th birthday, the mandatory age for retirement. He has been a tree supervisor for 16 years.. State Forester H. C. Buckingham, here for the meeting, praised Low- j man as one of the department's most able men in encouraging townspeople to plant more r shade trees and to take better care of existing trees in Funkstown and Hagerstown.
