With a Park Avenue debutante as star and its blue-blooded author as leading man, "Maiden Effort" was not the kind of picture you'd find on a double bill. But something misfired . . . the fdm was never completed. · Were its society stars too temperamental, . the director too dumb, or was it LOVE that stopped the cameras? You'll find the answer in "MAIDEN EFFORT," our new serial story--and one of the funniest in many a year! P. S.

Immediately the nortlicin p a i t n; he Shore contacted the Associatioi and have progressed rapidly in tlieii own territory. A six or eight team league will get underway early in October, composed of Elktnn, Havre de Grace, North Ecast, Chesapeake City, Aberdeen and Port Deposit. With the idea in mind to have two leagues, a northern and central, on the Shore, Mr. William J. McGnhai of- the Association came to Denton on Wednesday evening last and dih- cussed plans before a gioup of twenty-five young men representing five towns in these parts. The Constitution, Rules and Regulations as set forth by the Association aie truly the best that have ever been tried in this section. Although nothing definite was decided upon, Mr. McGahun explained fully (he details of the Association. By affiliating with the State body, teams would be invited to compete in the State competition to be held in Baltimore at the close of the season. This competition is open only to clubs affiliated with the State body, t would al-o consist of paid referees and an injured player fund. Greensboro, Ridgely, Vienna, and Denton were very much pleased with ha outlook and will do all in their power to promote this sport. It was bought, although not represented at he meeting, that Fcdcialsburg would )c in line in a few days. The Association will give a trophy and individual medals to the winning .earn. Mr. McGnhan stated that he would ic here again on Monday, October 3rd, at the Biick Hotel to make final arrangements so the clubs can get tatted by the third week in October. All and any towns who wish to or- ;anizc a team should contact Mr. iVm. J. McGahan, 112D N. Calvort St., Baltimore, Md., at once. It was also suggested a few weeks ago the National Guard sponsor the cam hcic.

The Journal Makes Survey Of County Welfare Work With the thought that the presen Relief Program in Caroline County is of rather vital interest to all of the people of our county, The Journal has attempted to gather from our loca Welfare Board some data and information which we hope will be of interest to our people. We have gath- eied this infoi million from the sta- .istics for tlie month of August 1938, It 1 found that 1-5 of the people of our county, who arc now over 05 years of age, are receiving some old IRC assistance and that the average imount paid in our county per pcr- ion a month L $12.28. The average layment for all the counties of our state is $14.57, and the average pay- nent for the city of Baltimore is 21.12, which shows an average for he entire state of $17.45 monthly )iiyment per person receiving nich id. There were 343 persons in Caro- in County receiving such assistance luring August. The vhicli 'these Old Age money from Pensions are Next Week--Joe E. Brown in "The Gladiators" Shirley Temple in "Little Miss Broadway" iaid comes 1-C fiom our local tax ayers, 2-G from the State of Mary- nnd, and 3-6 from the Federal Gov- rnment. For the fiscal year begin- ing July 1, 1038 our local County jommii-sioncrs have levied the sum f §9,000.00 to cover our county's part f such assistance for a year, which mounts to G cents on the $100.00 of ix valuations to our local tax payers, ml which will furnish a total pay- icnt to the people of our county in group of $54,000.00 for the ear. Under the classification of Aid to ependent Child) en we find that only 'ft of the population of our county nder 1C years of age are now receiv- ig i-uth assistance, or a total of 168 uildren from B7 families. The aver- ge payment per child is $9.57 per lonth as against an average pay- ent throughout the state, including altimorc City of $11.30 monthly per hild. The funds from which this as- stance is given arise from a 1 cent n the $100.00 tax levied by our Coun- Commisninncrs, with the Federal ovcrnment paying 1-3 of the total osts and the State of Maryland pay- ig the difference between the county vy and what the Federal Govern- tent pays. We find only eight persons in Carline County receiving assistance to ic Needy Blind, with an average ayment per pcison monthly of 18.38. The entire state, including altimore City, we note, has a total f GIG persons receiving such assist- ·ice, with an average monthly pay- nent of $20.88. The funds for this urpose are received 35% from our ounty tax payers, 1695 from the tatc of Maryland, and the remaining )'A from tho Federal Government. Under the head of General Public ssistancc, which means about what ic name implies, that is, assistance iven to persons who do not properly all under the Old Age, Dependent hildrcn, or the Needy Blind group, e find only 15 cases, with a few ases including more than one per- on that were receiving an average onthly payment of $8.21 per case, Sultry Products Marketing School At College Park The first Poultry Products Markct- ng School at the University of Mary- ind, which included a three-dny ses- i from September 14 to 17, at- racted representatives from nine tatcs and the District of Columbia. The school was planned and ar- angcd by Professor James M. Gwin, ho is in charge of poultry market- ng work at the University. Outstand- ig authorities on various phases of he subject from a number of states ppeaied for lectures nml demorustra- ons covering the practical and scien- ific problems connected t*ith mar- eting high-grade poultry products. Dr. H. C. Byrd, president of the Jnivcrsity, told those attending that start would be made in the next iree or four weeks on construction f a new poultry plant and building, hich would greatly increase the fa- ilitics for serving the poultry in- ustry of the state. He outlined the tridcs that have been made in the ast few years in developing poultry ork at the University. At the opening session, over which )r. Morlcy A. Jull, head of the poultry department presided, the extension, teaching and research activities of the University were described by lho.;c in charge. Referring to the poultry industry of Maryland as a "$13,000,000 industry," and second among the agricultural products of the state from the standpoint of value, Dr. T. B. Symons, acting dean and director of the Extension Service, declared that the outlook for the poultry business at present is better than any other line of agriculture, ;to it is not burdened by the surplus that exists in several of the major products. Dr. II. F. Cottcrman, assistant dean of the College of Agriculture, and J. E. Mctzgcr, acting director of the experiment station, described the teaching and research programs that are in progress and plans for their development. representing a total payment to thii group for the month of $182.49. Ni employable person received such as sistance during the month, and al the cases so helped appear to have had all the requirements of some o the other groups, except from a tech nical or legal standpoint. For in i-tancc, a person not quite G/5 yours of age, but with all of the. other 10- quircments to have permitted an Oh Age Pension payment. All of the money that is paid out in the Genera Public Assistance group comes from the County Commissioners of our county, but is paid by our Commissioners out of revenue received by them from the State, which revenue comes from our State Income Tax the pin ball machine tax, and some other similar special tax revenues. So that, in this group, there is no direct county tax levy to provide the revenue. While there were no surplus commodities distributed during the month of August in Caroline County, yet hroughout the state the retail price of such food and clothing so distributed during the month amounted to 138,720.17. In our county, particularly luring the winter months, such surplus commodities are made available o our needy people through the gency of our local Welfare Board. The cost of administration of our Velfare Board is often a matter of riticism, but when the number of elicf cased in our county is consid- red, all of which cases involve not nly a very thorough investigation, but a constant supervision, along with the fact that the local Welfare office must investigate and certify, from the standpoint of need, all per- the be- sons applying for jobs under Works Progress Administration fore such persons can be assigned, and all applicants to CCC camps from our county must be investigated and certified to before enrollment can be made, and since a part of the funds that are being distributed arc from the Federal and State Governments, the law requires very adequate and complete records on all cases handled by our relief office, it ia not difficult to understand that the clerical and bookkeeping work involved in the local office is very great. All such administration costs for the month of August including salaries to all the workers, mileage for investigations, office supplies, office rent, telephone, light, and so forth, amounted to $721.13, of which our County Commissioners, representing our local tax payers, pay only 20 %, or $144.22 for the month. It appears to us, therefore, that a good job of our welfare work is being done locally on a very economical basis. In passing, the seven citizens, all of them representative local tax payers, and who make up our County Welfare Board receive no compensation whatever for their services, even though they do meet at least once each month, and do give freely of their time and abilities in advising with the welfare workers, and the relief recipients. Denton Scores Win Over Queen stow n Here Last Sunday Last Sunday afternoon the Denton Baseball team won over the Queenstown Terps by the ecorc of 3 to 1.

Toxoid pre- cnts Diphtheria, and it is expected ccording to statements from the arolinc County Health Officer that c will have more Diphtheria this ear than in previous years. If you ill take your child to your family octor and ask him to give your child oxoid, it will prevent your child rom getting Diphtheria, and in the Turn to page 8, please.

The American Auto Association organizes and sponsors these Patrols all over the country to prevent accidents. This year we have appointed boys on each bus to help the driver ircvent accidents. All through the building these members of the Patrol mingle with the children, and when classes pass, take their definite positions to guide tho pupils with safety through the halls. During the past ,wo years that this patrol has been active in C. H. S., it has prevented accidents that might have been fatal. The members of the Safety Patrol if 1938-30 are as follows: Louise Roe Raymond Trice Barton Butler Harry Allston Harold Altfather Edward Smith Malcolm Lord Allen Clark Athletics It looks as if we arc going to have great day Friday. If it doesn't rain, here will be the first field ball game f the season, Federalsburg vs. Denon. The girls, under the instruction f Mrs. Deardorf, have been making ood progress on the field. We feel ure we shall have a good team this ear. Boys' Athletics Tho boys in athletics have been prac- icing hard and have had some really romising scrimmages. We declare ow, for the benefit of the opposing cams, that we arc out to win the bampionship. Alumni News We try to keep up v/ith the gradates but a few seem to have disap- eared. Several have gone to college nd some have jobs. Pauline Moore ust can't leave C. H. S. and she is ack to take a Post Graduate course, harlotte Butler is going to Goldey ollege. Susie Oros is studying accenting at Straycr's in Washington nd Phyllis Scese is at Salisbury tatc Normal. Elizabeth Frank is at be Church Home Hospital taking up ursing, but it teems as though our riend Christine McNeal will remain n Denton as she has a job in Mr. lendnnicl's office. Clyde Pentz is gong to Juinota College and Billy Mer- iken, to Mercersburg. Some of the graduates have secured small jobs ntil better ones come along, but vhatever the graduates are doing we wish them luck. Senior News Greetings everybody 1 Here we are ack again after a week of diligent tudying. At the present we are earning about simple machines used or transmitting a force such as the ever and pulley. Labbe Constantin, fie novel we are reading by Lucovic lalevey, claims all our attention in French. Progress is slow but sure. We avc thought about calling our His- ory class "Social Problems of De- locracy," instead of just "Problems f Democracy". Today, we started ur discussion on Pubilc Opinion, our !rd unit. The Trig, students have mished a study of mixture and mo- ion problems. In English, we have cad a most instructive letter by George H. Lorimer, who, in the char- cter of John Graham, wrote to his on in college. The theme was that he first thing education ought to ive a man is character and the sec- nd is education. We have two per- c- of Music a week, which is some- ling to look forward to. Chcrrio. Junior News Well, here we arc at the end of our lird week. At present in history we re studying the colonization of America. In Chemistry we are learn- ng all about symbols, compounds, etc. xygen, which we are studying and xpcrimcnting with, is a very inter- sting subject. I think we all like rench pretty well. The angles and egrees, taken up in our geometry lass, are very interesting. Sophomore News Hello, cvcryonel My head whirls rom trying to get to the class in I belong according to the new chcdule. I think I am right now. In Biology we have finished study- ng the problem of "How animals ob- ain their food" and are now studying The ways by which plants get their ood". ments Monday we on osmosis had two and soil experi- water. [any of us have found this our fav- ritc cldss and have decided to work cry hard. Our Algebra classes have been tak- n up by review, but we arc almost i to where we left off last year. In Latin we have been reviewing crbs and translating. We arc reading short stories in English and are finding them cx- remely interesting. We have read everal types, such as character, sur- prise ending, humorous, and the weird type of stories. Many sophomore boys have entered this week and havte increased our class enrollment greatly. We are glad to welcome Charlotte Jlignutt and Minerva Breeding back to school. Each spent quite a bit of her vacation in the hospital. My history book is open in front of me and just begging to be read, so until next week, good-bye. News Flashes There have been several changes in the schedule this past week. These have been chiefly in the Sophomore class, with some in the Junior class. The schedule seems to be straightened out now and tho school is running smoothly. Corrections, please! Last week there were two mistakes under tho leading of the homes of our teachers. Miss Trice lives at the corner of 5th and Seventh streets instead of on Gth street. Miss Short, Miss Stratman, and Miss Guyton live in a little house on the west side of 3rd street between tlain and Franklin streets. They have a house mother, and quite a cozy lit- le home. Miss Willoughby, whom we failed to locate last week, lives on iccond street. Tuesday, September 20, started onr anking year in school. The rooms laving the most depositors were Mrs. Ramsburg's and Miss Lawless'. Lead- ng the school with the largest deposits, were Mr. Stull's room and Miss Trice's room. This week, the total deposit was $13.52. EDITORIAL This year, as has been the custom for several years, the Safety Patrol at Caroline High School has been organized and the patrolmen have been placed at their respective positions in the halls. The maintenance of this department depends upon the cooperation of the entire student body, for without their cooperation the object of the Safety Patrol can not be obtained. Our Safety Patrol is important both to the students now, and in later life. It teaches them obedience to traffic laws and keeps them on the alert for situations which might lead to accidents. The students on duty also profit by the Safety Patrol It gives them certain training and in- stils within them certain responsibilities which will prove valuable in later life. Freshman News Hello again, folks. Here's your freshman reporter back with more news. We've been experimenting in our science course down in the science room. These experiments are quite interesting to observe and we all enjoy them. The Industrial Arts class is overjoyed to find that the new materials which were needed have been provided by the School Board Office. The boys studying agriculture have put some seeds where they can get moisture and it is interesting to watch them sprout. In our music course on Monday and Tucsady we enjoy singing the songs in which we can get some good harmony. That'* Turn to page 8, please.
