ALL IN A DAY Hitler and Mussolini may have Europe stymied, but that can't compare with the way a Virginia avenue family has felt ever since a family of polecats moved in and made themselves at home under the front porch of the house. It wasn't a family a I first, just Mama Skunk —but early in the summer she gave 3irth to four little kittens. The thriving cat family haven't caused any trouble yet. Apparently nothing has happened to make any disturbance and the musk glands which cause the odor that humans dread have been kept under control. But you never know how long that's going to last. That's why the' 'amily playing host feels as though t's situated on the brink of a vol- ;ano—one false move and there'll be clothes to be buried. Mrs. Skunk takes the four little ones for a walk every evening and observant neighbors were much amused recently when, one of the voungsters poking behind the oth- rs f the mother marched back, picked him up by the nape of the neck and let it be known she would stand or no more dalliance. * * * You don't have to go to .Kentucky to find out about feudin'. In Blair's Talley in our own Washington county, for instance, conversations still turn toward the religious feud jegun a number of years ago which still exists, in less rampant fashion, today. Since before the turn of the cen- ury the Church of God has been the center of worship for all the esidents of this beautiful valley. Sponsor of the annual and eminent- y popular Blair's Valley picnic, the Church of God also fostered an ac- ,ive Christian Endeavor Society. Miss Marjorie Eyerly, of York City, is spending her vacation with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer K. Eyerly, South Prospect street. ALL-DAY HIKE. Again an all-day hike has been planned from I-Inutcr's Run to Pino Grove Furnace for Sunday, August 13 by the Maryland Appalachia: Trail Club. This hike has beci scheduled twice before and each time cancelled on account of rain. With ideal weather predicted anc vacation time in evidence, a larg* crowd is expected to join the hiker; for this enjoyable jaunt of eiglr miles. Hikers are requested to brim along their swim suits, canteen and food for two meals. Carlton (Bud) Helm will be the leader and reservations can be made by telephoning 2252-J. WELLS REUNION The thirty-first annual reunion of the Wells clan will be held on Sunday, August 20, at Pangborn Park. Came dissension within the ranks and the next thing these good hill people knew, a minister of the Pentecostal church had been imported from New Jersey. A number of residents sided with this new group and left the other church. The Pentecostalites built a little red church, held regular services, condoned the simultaneous worship of blacks and whites. Preaching at these services, the people will tell you with horror in their voices, dealt with such things as "tobacco;" the doctrines were entirely different from those which had been previously preached in the valley. God-fearing men forecast doom for the neighborhood when the flourishing Christian Endeavor broke up. Girding themselves with the proverb that the Lord helps those who help themselves, men of the old church took matters into their own hands and "raided" one of the Pentecostal services. A trial in Hagerstown- was the outcome, but justice ruled that the Church of God had acted within its rights. Comparative peace reigns in the valley again. Services are still held at the Pentecostal church, but only a very few attend. The bitterness of other days is largely forgotten. Last Saturday we mentioned in this column that a house on the road from Blair's Valley to Mercersburg has a sign on its front door which reads "God's house." Village gossip says a new branch of Pentecostalism has gotten under way and that this house is its headquarters, but so far everything has been quiet. A .few services have been held in an old church several miles up in the mountains, but-no trouble is anticipated. Bible School Will Have Closing Today The Vacation Bible School which ias been in session since July 31 at the North Side Mission, North Locust and McComas streets, will be brought to a close today.
