THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., SATURDAY, AUGUST 5, 1939. THREE COMPANY B OFFTOCAMP Fifty-Nine Men And Four Officers Depart Today For Training. Shortly after G:30 o'clock this morning seven trucks of a convoy carrying members of Co. B, Maryland National Guard and equipment, to camp in the Manassas- Gainesville area in northern Vir• ginia, departed on their way to Frederick through which town they will pass on the route to the concentration point. With five men unable to attend camp the local unit left this morning: with 59 men and four officers. Capt. Carl H. McCleary will be in command. Two reserve officers are accompanying the unit they being First Lieut. Victor R'. Martin and First Lieut. William H. Sparrow, of the 42nd Infantry, Re- •erve. Members of the company were given final instructions last evening at the state armory and loading of the trucks was completed. The Motor Transport Co., Camp Ritchie, is furnishing the trucks and drivers and the convoy will be busy not only \vith transporting Co. B, but other companies to camp. It is estimated that it will take three hours and 15 mfmites to transport Co. B to Groveton. Va., near where- the company will be located. They will travel by way of Frederick, Point of Rocks and Leesburg. The most elaborate mobilization of National Guard troops in the Third Corps Area since the World War will take place in Virginia in the South and at Plattsburg in the North. The climax of the two weeks training period will be a large scale Corps field maneuver to be held August 14 to 17. During these four days the men of the Maryland National Guard will get a taste of life as it would be lived under conditions of actual warfare. Sham battles and overnight hikes will be a part of the training in the Manassas area, near the famous Civil War Bull Run battlefield. The 29th Division, including all Maryland troops, will be under command of Maj. Gen. Milton A. Reckord. A detachment of Pennsylvania troops, including officers, passed through here yesterday afternoon on the way to camp. Many of the Pennsylvania troops will be transported by traiu and truck convoys will be routed around larg*& cities. The Virginia troops will travel by truck. No doubt many will visit camp on August 12, when there will be a field inspection and review witnessed by the governors of Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Battalion training will take place on August 7 and on August 10 a reinforced Brigade Field maneuver' will be held. The 29th Division will have schools for officers, noncommissioned officers and staffs during the period from August 7 to 10. THE GAY THIRTIES THEY LAUGHED. AND THEY KEPT RIGHT ON WALKING LOUISVILLE.

The story concerns a powerful a.nd mysterious ring of fur thieves who are operating in Starrett's territory. Unable to get a definite clue that might lead to their capture, Starrett and his commanding officer attempt a daring ruse wherein Starrett is expelled from the service for misconduct and makes himself known as an outlaw, thus seeking to join the real outlaws and uncover their entire outfit. The Sons of the Pioneers are seen in the picture, this time singing "Montie"' song's written especially for the film by Bob Nolan. Others in the cast nre Linda Winters, Robert Fiske, Hal Taliaferro and Lane Chandler. ANN SHERIDAN IS GLAMOUR STAR OF NEW COMEDY A few persons who know Ann Sheridan intimately call her "Tex." Her mama calls her Clara Lou, for that is her real name. But she'll respond in equally as friendly a manner to "Annie" and "Red," for to be called Miss Sheridan by others than total strangers makes her ill at ease. She's just: what the screen, as well as the football coaches want—a triple threat gal. She can act. she can sing, she can dance, she has beauty and a figure. What a figure! The kind that stops traffic when she walks down the street. "Xaughty But Nice" showing last limes today at t.he Academy Theatre.

H.—Crown Princess Juliana of the Netherlands presented the House of Orange with another daughter early Friday. The child was born at 1:09 a. m... (7:09 p. in. EST Friday) at Soestdyk Palace. There had been high hopes among Netherlander thnt the baby would be the first male heir to the throne of the little kingdom in almost a century. Princess Beatrix, Ihe first child oC t.he 30-ycaii.,okl Juliana and 28-year old German Prince Bernard, was a year old last Jan. :U. The hour was such that the general public, long anticipating the event, was not aware of the birth of the baby. The announcement was made briefly by ticker services to newspapers. At 7 a. in., the news will lie broken to the public by a salute of SI guns—signifying the birth of a girl. A 101-gnn salute would have been fired for a boy. It. was announced that the nation's official celebration of the roval birth would be held Monday. TVTME IN iiHflft.iniM.

State police, augmented by Allegany county and municipal authorities patrolled the gates of the- Celanese Corporation of America plant today where 8,000 workers halted operations on a. strike called by the local unit of the- United Textile Workers (CIO). There was no disorder, and no non-union employes sought to enter the plant after the first group of workers—2,500 on the night shift—walked out of the factory in orderly fashion yesterday afternoon. Neither the midnight shift nor the early morning group reported today, although hundreds of spectators and pickets gathered outside the buildings. Meanwhile, company officials and spokesmen i'or local 1S47 issued conflicting statements on the- work stoppage. In a full-page newspaper advertisement, the company said "i'or more than a year efforts to settle the wage question and other points in the contract have- failed because of the impossibility of agreeing on the- closed shop question The company is not willing to enter into a closed shop contract." Members of the union, CIO affiliate, authorized a strike call if necessary Tuesday when negotiators reported they had been unable to agree ou a new contract after a series of conferences. Union committeemen began organizing picket lines after the walkout. Pickets -,,-ere'not posted immediately, however. The Celanese plant, where artificial silk' is made, has been operating at capacity during the winter and spring, employing • 8,000 production and 1,000 office workers.

Waterspout Hits = Village On Shore CRISFIELD, Md., Aug. 5 (ff).—A swirling waterspout defied tradition during a sudden downpour Friday, swept inland from tlm Pocomoke river and caused slight damage to several homes in Birdtown, small river-bordering village four miles from here. The spout, one of several that lifted off the river within 30 minutes, disregarded the custom of- waterspouts which usually stick to water, and swerved suddenly toward shore. A number of windows were brok-' en and several homes were splattered with marshland mud, carried along by the twisting funnel of water. WARNER BROS.

When Kapnick leaped out, police took up the chase at ! 75 miles an hour along the Henry Hudson Parkway, until the bandits crashed into a wall. After treatment, they were charged with kid- naping, assault, robbery, grand larceny and violation oE the Sullivan law. (C.P.) LAST TIMES TODAY Continuous 1 Till 11 P. M. ~~ ^*" ~ '^--'"'T* j- €—• ^ . ., &»?•*'"** Mesquiteers^ / FAIR CITY By SIDNEY D: BLOEME New Y .'k, Aug. 4.—There has been, considerable gossip as to the expensiveiiess of attending the Fair. Contrary to common belief we have held otherwise. "But you haven't visited the Fair as an. out-of-town- er," someone recently said to tis. "Now the out-of-towner would like to eat, drink and be merry while there—and THAT is expensive." We asked our informant if he had visited the places to go. He said that he hadn't but that he had heard planty. That someone had informed him it cost fifteen dollars per person to dine in the French Pavilion. We laughed at the thought, said it was high time we investigated, aud asked our friend to join the expedition. He accepted. * * * We started at 5 p. m. in the famed terrace restaurant of the French Pavilion which commands an excellent view of the fountains in the Lagoon of Nations. We ordered tea and cakes, stayed almost an hour, were never hurried at any time. Cost, forty cents. (We learned that drinks cost the same as at any good bar in the city. Dinner was a la carte, therefore, expensive; but a good dinner could be obtained for at >ut ?5.00.) Enjoyed a Planter's Punch in the Lounge of the Belgian Pavilion, which also commands a view of the Lagoon. We dawdled as long as j we wished In the comfortable chairs; and the music fit the atmosphere of the place. Cost, sixty cents. (Dinner was fixed at three dollars.) We were hungry by now. So we stopped in the Rumanian House. One couldn't expect to eat in a place so conducive to restful indulgence as this. Slavic-Gypsy atmosphere. Strauss waltzes, Hungarian folk .sic, Rumanian marches. Grpen trees in the open air garden, j And dinner superbly prepared and j served. Hor d'oeuvres, capon soup j (creamed with large portions of j fowl), charcoal roasted capon, des-1 sert aud coffee. My friend had tea j which he proclaimed as the most ] savory he had ever tasted. Cost, ; After dinner we visited the Rus- , .sian Pavilion. .Midst the opulence i of this example of "What the Plan i Can Do," we sipped tiny glasses of vodka and watched the fireworks over the Lagoon from the terrace. Cnst. f-viy (•••;!>•. Ami no tipping! CONTINUOUS 41A.H. to 11 P.M. ^ AT The evening having settled, we sauntered over to the amusement center. We moved slowly and were just in time for a showing 1 of "As You Like It," as done by the Globe Theater Players in the Merrie England exhibit. Though the theater was rather warm, we liked it—the players seem to have as much, fun as the audience. Their performances were infectious. Cost, 45 cents. Bat if your throat is slightly parched afterwards, Heineken's Oii-The-Zuider-Zee is across the bridge. It is about f-.e most charming spot in the amusement area. And the coffee was excellent, to say the least. Cost, fifty cents. (We had two apiece.) * * * It was past twelve by now. We were a little wearied. So we decided to conthr. j our trek at a later date. B\it before saying good night, we asked our friend if he still thought the Fair expensive. "Gosh, no," he replied. "I can't wait until we come back. After all, we didn't see ALL the places to go, did we?" No, we didn't. But we will.
