The press with a unanimity indicating direction from a central authority intensified its anti-Polish campaign. Pre-military practice in rifle shooting, signalling, topography and similar field work has long been a part of the Hitler youth program, but the instructors were youth movement leaders.

At many filling stations in Berlin gasoline purchasers were told that hereafter regular customers could get only about two and one- half to four gallons and strangers were refused more than one and one-fourth gallons. This did not mean car owners were left •without gasoline, for by going from station to station they could obtain all they needed. In meant, however, that many drivers began to think in terms of the most economic use of their vehicles. This phase of "preparedness" psychology was enhanced when evidence accumulated that in many cities, notably in the south, autos and trucks had been requisitioned by the military at Salzburg particularly many private vehicles were requisitioned. The press unanimously emphasized that the German army was standing behind Danzig and the one of the editorials was summarized in headlines such as this: "Poland Beware." Newspapers were quick to follow the lead of the official news agency, which last night warned that continued "challenges" from Poland might result in "acquaintanceship with German weapons." Alley Program Is Held Inequitable Street Commissioner Aaron Reecher predicted last night that an angry delegation would appeal- before the Mayor and Council in the near future unless the city's alley building program is more equitably distributed.

The Street Commissioner pointed out that it has been impossible [or the northern residential section to get proper representation in the City Council and thus that section is neglected in the matter of improvements. The Board discussed at length the duties and powers of the recently created purchasing bureau and purchasing agent. A number of other routine matters were discussed at the regular meeting.

CHICAGO, Aug. 9 (5 s ).—Here's a bit of good and/or bad news for the nation's 3,000,000 or more hay- fever sufferers, now laying in supplies of handkerchiefs for this year's big blow! The current crop 'of aggravating weeds is about average. The information was furnished by Ore-n C. Durham, chief botanist for Abbott Laboratories and a veteran of 23 years' research in allergies. He also advised that: The corn crop is the yardstick of the weed crop, and corn this year appears about an average. A ration between the number of weeds and the number of sneezes cannot be fixed in advance because of the weather, which is responsible -for scattering or settling the pollen, is unpredictable for a period as long as the hayfever season. Most sufferers live in the northern half of the country whei-e the season for sneezin' starts between August 1 and 10 and reaches its peak" aroU'ird September 1. In the south the season starts later and lasts longer. An increase in. the amount of public works has enlarged the area where weeds grow. Disturbed soil is fertile for weeds. Two or three years are required for grass to grow in and strangle them. Ragweed claims most victims east of the Mississippi. The great plains region to the west is plagued with Russian thistle. Marijuana, growing wild in parts of Iowa and Nebraska, picks on a legion of others. Youth Gets Year For Taking Auto Convicted of unauthorized use of an automobile, Thomas N. Miller, 20, of St. James, was sentenced yesterday afternoon to one year in the House of Correction by Magistrate E. G. Miller at Boonsboro.
