Opposition to the all-day closing of banks on Saturdays was voiced by the local merchants in a letter to State Senator George N. Wade, urging him to enlist his support in balking any measures that may come before the Legislature affecting Saturday bank closing. 'The letter, prepared by Harry H. Gaylor, chairman of the Carlisle Retail Merchants Bureau, upon authorization of its executive committee, declares the "members of the committee believe it would be a serious handicap to the business and financial interests of market towns like Carlisle for our banks to close all day on Saturday." He stated "Saturday is the day that farmers come to town. The market attendants come in for the larmers market, and Saturday is by far the largest day of the week for our retailers." "If the banks were closed all day Saturday," the letter continues, "the merchants would be obliged to draw large sums of cash on Friday so as to take care ".of their customers' needs on Saturday. This would mean not only inconvenience but also a serious risk in having their cash exposed to theft over night."

Grain futures opened higher on the Board of Trade today. May wheat varied MiC both higher and lower, but the other wheat deliveries ranged Vtc to 2c higher. Corn was l'tc to 3c higher, oats Vac to 3c higher and barlev inactive. Scattered support gave firm under tones to March and September wheat. and to March and July corn at the start. Commission houses bought wheat. while cash houses bought corn. There was little of the free selling that previously has cracked both wheat and corn to the bottom price limit. However, traders with long positions still watched for any change the Government makes in contracts involved with cash wheat in Southwestern markets. Former buying splurges in wheat futures apparently were spurred by a scarcity of cash wheat. Selling followed when reports said the Uovernment might accept wheat delivered in April which was contracted for March delivery. At Kansas City. September wheat gained t"tc to 5c at the opening. The other deliveries however, dropped Vac to 2'Ac. Minneapolis wheat opened 3vc lower. while oats varied c lower to higher. Winnipeg rye started unchanged to lHc higher. JUDGE FINDS From Page One of the prison employes is warranted. "The District Attorney advises us that he has found no evidence which would warrant criminal prosecution," Judge Woodside said. "Under the law, it is for that board (prison board) to determine what if any disciplinary action against any of its employes is warranted in this case." The Wade boy, who died at the Harrisburg Hospital of peritonitis from a ruptured appendix, about eight hours after he was admitted from jail, complained of being sick the day after he was admitted to jail, the investigation revealed. It was known to another youth, who shared the cell with Wade, and two prisoners, who were known as "runners." One "runner" gave him epsom salts, which the young prisoner took, the report says. Told No Guards The boy's indiscretion was that he did not report his illness to any of the guards,' warden or his deputies, the court said. He stood up, as required, in his cell every morning during the guard s good morning" inspection anl was thought to have eaten the food served him, although the other juvenile said Wade frequently did not eat his food and he ate both portions. The time when Leas received the report of the youth's illness is in connct, Judge Woodside said It was some time between 7.40 and 10 a. m. on March 10. The prison physician, Dr. S. Kirby Lawson, was not at his office at that time and when he reported to the prison between 3 and 4 o'clock that afternoon he ordered Wade's prompt removal to the hospital. Having been committed to jail for violation of a parole, young Wade was in custody of Probation Officer Edward Brubaker. The parole officer, when notified, ve ported to the jail about 4.50 p. m., and Wade, he said, walked to his automobile. The boy was admitted to the hospital at 5.05, and died at 1.08 the following morning. "Runners" Treatment Hit "It seems clear to us that 'run ners should not be allowed to 'prescribe' medication for their fellow prisoners as was done with tragic results in this case," Judge Woodside said. "We feel that this is a matter for the immediate con sideration of both the warden and the Prison Board acting under ad vice of the prison physician. Rules should be adopted and strictly en forced which will avoid a situation of this kind in the future." This was stressed by Judge Woodside on members of the Board who were summoned to the judge's chambers today. Board members present were Claude R. Robins, Frank A. Eilsbach, Vernon D Leisure and Willard Reiser, Jr. George H. Albright, and Fred B. Harry could not attend. Stresses Need of Home Judge Woodside again stressed the urgent need of a modernly equipped detention home. The Wade boy was committed to the jail because accommodations at the home were inadequate to care for his type, the jurist said. "There isn't any doubt that a new detention home is needed and needed very badly," he said. He added that the' county commis sioners are in agreement with him and that the architectural firm of Lawrie and Green has been au thorized to draw preliminary plans. Formerly a Residence The present Detention Home, formerly a residence, is not prop erly equipped to care for various types of juvenile delinquents, he said. The jurist particularly objected to the dormitory arrangement for maintaining the children. Some children, he said, require merely supervision and direction, while others require all facilities of maximu msecurity prisons. Wade, he said, was of the type that could not be kept ni the Home. "Some times we even permit certain children to stay home with their parents, because conditions at the Home would not permit the proper correction of the children," Judge Woodside said. Juvenile court is held nearly every week, but it so happened that the Wade boy was taken into custody the" day after Juvenile Court was held. Had he been picked up a couple of days earlier, his case would have been disposed of and he might have been in a position where his plight would have been observed and attended, the court said.

Opposition to two bills currently before the State Legislature was voiced by the Inter-Club Council of Derry Town ship at a meeting held this week in the' Community Building. The bills, both of which would relax regulations now in effect in the operation of liquor establish ments, are known as House Bills 279 and 264. The former would provide for taverns and tap rooms to oe open Sunday while the latter would permit' such places to remain in operation until 2 a. m. Sunday instead of closing at midnight. The club also went on record as being in sympathy with Teacher Pay Bill No. 417 which would raise the minimum salary for teachers to $2400 a year. Lieutenant Graeff, of the State Police, addressed the club on the methods employed by communistic organizations and urged the distribution of pamphlets to familiarize residents about Communistic . aims. Lester Martin Named To Central YMCA Post The selection of Lester Martin, this city, as assistant boys' work sec retary of the Central YMCA was approved yesterday at a meeting of the directors and trustees. Mar tin will succeed Robert Strawhecker who resigned. A recognition service was held for the late Robert A. Enders, former president of the association. A report was given on the pro posal to erect a Youth Center ad joining the present "Y" building. It was planned to combine solicitations for this project, estimated to cost about $100,000, with the World Youth Fund Campaign for Restora tion. However, the campaign for the new structure has been post poned indefinitely. James E. Grun-ert, membership secretary, explained that the Community Chest and Council approved the idea, but con sidered it untimely to solicit funds or build now.
