Phona 4600 for a WANT AD Taker EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 1952 Forest Fire Season Here 1 The forest fire danger season begins tomorrow in this area. accord- Ing to William H. Johnson, district fdrester. During March. April and May. the state law requiring controlled burning of debris near woodlands effect, except when snow is in covers the ground. These regulations apply to. burning within 200 feet of woodland or inflammable material that could ignlt* and carry lire to woodland outside the limits of incorporated towns. Controlled burning after ^ p. m. and before midnight during the spring months may be done after certain protective measures are taken, Johnson explained. These measures are not necessary if there is a natural firebreak of at least 10 feet In width surrounding the area to be burned which is free of inflammable material. Mrst of the precautionary mea- »Ui-es required for burning is that or otherwise 10 feet wide completely around the area to be burned. It also is necessary that sufficient help, with tools, be provided to prevent fire from escaping. Finally, at least one watchman should be on the ground until the last spark is out. Johnson noted that burning conditions were rather dangerous earlier this week, with the result that a few grass fires occurred in this four-county district. Tuesday grass fires were extinguished near R*wlings and Cresaptown. like to make a. fast buck by taking bets on the ponies and the primrose path ladies are shaking in their suede shoes and. wedgies, respectively. The cause of their concern is "that man Dlggins," who has returned to Hagerstown following a brief stay in Baltimore where he quit the Police Department after being twice suspended from the force for creating public disturbances. "That man Diggins" is Frank H. Diggins, former Baltimore patrolman who gained wide publicity here a fireline be plowed constructed at least 44 That Man Diggins" Back In Hagerstown Again HAGERSTOWN—The boys who (like an officer when, on February 8, he engaged in "a verbal altercation" in the main corridor at police headquarters with a police lieutenant. Dlggins pleaded guilty to the charge, the commissioner said. The "verbal altercation" occurred after Lieut. Lawrence Kerr had testified against Diggins in a Traffic Court case. Diggins publicly accused the lieutenant of having "perjured" himself. Digging's first suspension was ordered after he was convicted in criminal court of assaulting a used- car dealer upon discovering that during a six-month period last year i the Diggins car, parked in front of New York Minister Aids British Church NEW YORK— (F\—A donation to help repair and maintain a 13th Century English church, one of the oldest in England, has been made by * New York minister. The Rev. R. C. Hunsicker, vicar of St. Paul's Chapel here, sent a $200 check to the rector of Iffley Church, Oxfordshire, England. The New York clergyman said he was impressed with the antiquity and magnificence of the church he saw on a visit last summer. Principle Of Nazism Still Prevalent Among Germans VANCOUVER. B. C. (ff)—Carl D. H. von Elnsledel, who is a descendant of Germany's "Iron Chancellor," Otto von Bismark. says the principal of Nazism is still widespread in Germany. Von Einsiedel came to Canada from West Germany eight months ago. He fears the infiltration of the Communists anti the rapidly growing neo-Nazi Socialist Reich Party, perhaps disguised as non-partlsans or members of other political groups. If the Socialist Reich Party should ever lead the country it would only mean another dictatorship, he said. Nova Scotia lies entirely east of Maine, notes the National Geographic Society. No part of the Canadian Maritime province lies farther north-or farther south than the north-south extremes of the fine Tree State, as a one-man undercover operator for Hagerstown's police commissioner and the Washington county state's attorney's office. Diggins was on the job for several months, being paid 465 a week and expenses by the police commissioner —who was later reimbursed, before top brass of the police force and the rank and file had an inkling oi' his operations. And some members of the department didn't have any idea of what he looked like until he left Hagerstown following the lifting of his first suspension in Baltimore • During the six months Diggins brought in sufficient 'evidence to convict all of the city's top race horse bookies and those responsible for the "red light" district. The fines imposed in circuit court amounted to more than $10,000, and it will be summer before some of the jail terms end. Col. Beverly Ober, Baltimore police commissioner, announced a few days ago Diggins had tendered his resignation and that it had been accepted. Diggins, whp has been here the sast few days, sai«fi at the time n Baltimore that he still has the badge and gun given him while working for the Hagerstown police force during his first suspension 'rom the Baltimore department, and that he expected to return here to do police work. It has not yet been announced if he's again connected wtih the force here, but the mere fact that he's in town has the town's sporting gentry inclined to stick to the straight and narrow Diggins offered his' resignation in Baltimore after a hearing before the commissioner on a charge that he failed to conduct himself the dealer's property, had been ticketed for illegal parking. Some of the latest walkie-talkie radios that both send and receive are about the size of a loaf of bread and' weigh about six and a half pounds, including batteries. CAMPANA ITALIAN BALM 2-oi.
