K E E P YOUR FIRES FRIENDLY AT CHRISTMAS TIME By J. Lloyd Hopkins, Chairman, Fire Prevention Committee, Maryland State Firemen's Association, Annapolis, .Maryland There's nothing so theeiful as a blazing log in the fireplace at Christmas tinu 1 , or a good waim fire in the furnace or stove. These are friendly flies that help us enjoy the fiiendli- ust of seasons. But when fire breaks out of bounds, its cheering warmth quickly changes to destructive heat, and tragedy stalks through the home. At this time of the year, particularly, dwelling houses are apt to be more vulnei able to fires. Special pre cautions aie therefore necc-sary to guard youi family fiom the possibilities of m j u i y and loss.

The local boyr kept the ball deep in St. Michael tciritory during the first half and failed to score at all during the entire game. Although the standing of the clubs gives St. Michaels 3 wins, this was :hcir first victory on the field as the other two were forfeits. A well executed play in the third quarter gave the boys from Talbot their first goal and their third of the season. The outside right centered the ball about 5 yards out from the goal to :he inside left for a perfect play. Their eecond goal came in the fourth period with "Old Lady Luck" riding on top the ball for them. The lineup: Denton Pos. St. Michaels Rnmsburg G. Leonard Morris L.B. Harrison Pollard R.B.

Matthis wa- the guest of Rotunun Rev. T. J. Turkington last Tuesday evening in connection with the Young Peoples program of Rotary. Youtfi and crime is one of the biggest and most pi casing problems of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. There Acorns to be no specific temedy, character building appearing the best. That is the aim of the F. B. I. and of Rotary International. The appellation G-Man was coined by "Machine Gun" Kelly in 1933. Kelly was sought in connection with the kidnapping of Charles Hertschcl, and was surprised in bed. Being captumd in one'n nightshirt, not being conducive to bravery, Kelly cried, "Don't shoot, G-Men, don't shoot." He was afterwards questioned about it and said he meant Government Men. Crime has changed from local to large scale organization. It has developed into its worst form preying upon homes and businesses on a national basis. The F. B, I. was formed in 1908 and took its present form in 1924. It enforces 90 federal laws, including kidnapping, and many other interstate crimes. The F. B. I. has to enforce these laws 675 Special Agents, in Puerto Rico, continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii. These men aic selected for ability and character. They must be between the ages of 23 and 25 ycais, 67 per cent are lawyers, 17 per cent accountants, and the remainder have had previous experience at law enforcement. They take an examination, and if patsed, are interviewed bj an inspector who must recommend them. Their background is investigated and a special emphasis placed on their character in jouth, as an indicator of character in later life. Consequently no one previously arrested will be accepted. If ok to this point the applicant is sent to a training school where he learns the laws he will enforce, and the situations which break those laws. Over a period of years the F. B. I. has evolved certain principles for solving cases and the student studies these. He is then sent to the Identification Bureau to study the system there. Here are 9,000,000 finger prints contributed from all over the nation at a rate of 5,000 a day. All are classified according to type, as the name of a criminal means little. It is a clearing house for the nation and 500 fugitives a month are identified through this system. The rookie next goes to the technical laboratory which is a scientist's paradise. Criminals now use the most modern and scientific equipment, and it takes equally as ingenious inventions to apprehend them. The laboratory is available to any law enforcement agency in the country. Evidence sent there will bo examined and the expert who examined it Ls available for testimony in the case if necessary. Over 1000 local cases have been supported by this kind of testimony. This training enables the student to recognize evidence when he is working on a case, which must be subjected to a laboratory test. Following this he goes to Quantico, Va., where he is taught to use firearms. Next comes field work, mostly routine. Back of every spectacular capture i months of routine work. The purpose of this training is to get men who will find the facts and not just convictions. Last year there were 1,500,000 crimes committed; 4,600,000 criminals arrested and convicted. 700,000 boyr and girls under the age of 21 in that number. 54 per cent of the total crimes are committed by youths under 25 years of age. Crime cost the nation $15,000,000,000 for the year, or $120 per person. Uncstimatcd is the cost in anguish and suffering of the families of criminals as well as of the victims. Removing juvenile delinquents makes law abiding citizens. Only through churches, service cluba, and public spirited citizens will organizations such as the Boy Scouto be able to gather in the boys who need their programs most.

Santa's visit is a festive occasion in our land. On Christmas morn we are awakened to find that Santa has arrived and left an abundance of nuts, fruit, and toy?. Now Santa is a very slippery fellow, as thoec of us have found out who have tiied to catch the old fellow in the act of sliding down our chimneys. The task grows more difficult when there is more than one chimney in the house. It would seem to some of us that Santa shows paitiality in ome of the houses he visits, but this is not true for he has the same Christmas spirit for every house he enters and, after all, isn't it the Spirit that really counts? News Flashes On December 13, the total bank deposit was $8.00. The looms that hnd ( the laigcst number of dopo-.=its were Mrs. Ramsburg's and Mis, Trice's. The rooms with the largest deposits were Mrs. Ramsburg's and Mis. Rni- righV. Miss Trice's room of Cth graders received the book given by the P.-T. A. for having the most parents present at the meeting of the P.-T. A. last Tuesday evening. This room was leprG-ented by 13 parents. Mrs. Hughes' room has received the book they ordered with the money they received from the P.-T. A. for having the most parents present at the October meeting of the P.-T. A. The book they chose was "The Haunted Bookshop" by Christopher Morley. Have you brought your toys in yet? Remember, we need all that we can pet! On Friday, December 9, at Willl-ton, the Sophomore Agriculture boys had a weenie roast. Each boy donated 10 cents for expenses. After the roast, games were played, and everyone had a merry time. The girls and some of the boys have been busy trying to pa^s off their badge work during athletic periods for the last two weeks. Many of those who have tried have finished their tests and are waiting for the arrival of the badges. Since the side entrances have been removed, and the open spaces boarded up, we have had to have one way traffic to and from the lower floor. The South stairway is used for the "up" traffic, while the Noith steps are used for the "down" traffic. Miss Simpson Speaks at P.-T. A. On Tuesday evening, December 13, the regular meeting of the P.-T. A. wiu5 held at Caroline High School. There was a conference period for teachers and parents from 7:30 until 8:00. At 8 o'clock a short business meeting was held. A very delightful musical program of Christmas carols was given under the direction of Miss Spicer. The Glee Club dressed in white, stood on one side of the stage, while on the other, Hannah Detwiler, ao the Virgin Mary, watched over the babj Jesus sleeping in the manger. An especially beautiful number was a solo by Nomn Barrow, accompanied by Miss Smith on the violin. The speaker of the evening was Mis^ I. Jewell Simpson, Assistant Supciintendcnt of Schools in Maryland. Miss Simpson gave a very delightful talk on her trip to Central Europp last summer. Among the countiics that she visited were Spain, Algeria, Jugoslavia, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Germany, and France. Venice, she discovered, has been cleaned up very njuch since Mussolini has been in power. He also has made it possible for the poor people of Italy to go to the opera, a pleasure that only the wealthy have been able to afford before his time. Right outside of Rome he has built a New Forum, which is used by the oung people for their spoils and games. In Austria Miss Simpson found busts and pictures of Hitler evcry- ivheie. Vienna, \vhich used to be n place of gaiety and laughter before Austria was taken over by the Nazis, is now a tragic place without laughter or music. Several Viennese ladies called on Miss Simpson there and she learned from them that the young people arc accommodating themselves to the new regime, but the older people would like to emigrate if it were possible. In Germany she found the countryside beautiful. Troops were drilling everywhere, and they usually enng as they drilled. Some of the small German towns are real fairy talc towns, and nothing in them can be changed. As far as one can judge from appearances the people in Germany seem happy and arc 90 per cent behind Hitler. Miss Simpson ran across a rather amusing piece of propaganda, told to her by her land lady in one of these German towns. This good Frau asked her if there were many Germans in America. On being told that there were a great many, she remarked that it was a i-hame they didn't speak German, that it was too bad the German language lost out by 4 votes. Miss Simpson tried to convince the woman that no such vote had ever been held here, but the lady said it was done over a hundred years ago and Miss Simpson was not living then. The landlady never did believe that no such thing ever happened. The feeling that many of the people in Central Europe have for the United States was shown in the remark an Italian guide, who had lived in California, made to her as they were leaving for home. He said "I wish I were going back to America with you to live. There one can mako more money, have more fun, and they are not eo strict". Assembly On Tuesday morning we were greeted with the pleasant news that a "G"-man was going to speak to us at 2:30. We were all very eager to see him and hear what he had to say. At 2:30 we marched to the auditorium and settled down to listen to a very interesting talk, and we were not disappointed. Rev. Turkington introduced the "G"-man, Mr. John H. Matthis, one of G. Edgar Hoover's men from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. One of the first points Mr. Matthis brought out was that one can not distinguish a "G"-mari by his looks. The agents arc all uf various heights and weights, some having blond hair and others have dark. The F. B. I. tries to get men who differ i nshapcs and sizes but who arc especially fitted to fulfill their duties in different phases of the work. They want men who are able to meet difficult situations. Almost every important point which Mr. Matthis gave was brought out by a story of an actual case which some agent of the F. B. I. had solved. He listed a few federal offenses but said that there were 90 in all. With so many federal offenses and only 675 special agents scattered over the country to take care of them, it w reasonable that intelligent, keen men arc wanted for the job. Kidnapping is one Federal offense. The first consideration in solving a kidnapping case is the safe return of the person kidnapped, so the investigation following the committing of the crime is limited. The technical laboratory in Washington Ls the agent's chief aid in solving a case. Mr. Matthis went on to say that the F. B. I. wants men who have been outstanding people in their field of work. Perhaps a course in Chemistry during high school may have helped an agent to decide whether a red mark on the floor is blood or paint. Mr. Matthis concluded with an invitation to visit the technical laboratory at Washington and examine the various machines and devices which the F. B. I. uses in solving criminal cases. Music Notes In addition to a play to be given by members of the fifth grade under the direction of Mrs. Ramsburg and Miss Lawless, our Christmas assem- Iy will consist of group carol singing. All the school will participate and many of the music classes have been reviewing the familiar carols and learning new ones. The first Christmas carol recorded in Luke 11:13-14, was sung by the Heavenly chorus of angck over the plains of Bethlehem and many of our carols were inspired by this sweet, old story. Carol singing in the open air on Christmas Eve was very popular in the Middle Ages and has become customary in many American cities. To the North Pole Dear Santa Claus, We children from C. H. S. haven't been perfect this year, 'cause nobody can be perfect, but we've been pretty good, and we hope that you will come to see us on Christmas Eve. Some things we would like to have are: a new laugh for Bill White a new blond for "Biggy" Greenley . a chance to grow V4 inch more for Barney Nuttlc some banana peels for Louise Roe a soft heart for Robert Thawley so he will take Mae Fifield to Chestertown when he goes an alarm clock for Robert Thawley so he will get to school early for a change some new ideas for the staff some bright Algebra students for Mr. Lee smaller P. 0. D. assignments for the Seniors more picture frames of assorted sizes to hold Sherman's pictures for Elaine Greaves more chalk for the rooms in the high echool new jokes for "Wes" Thawley a new bodyguard for Vernon Porter a choo-choo train for "Beefy" Butler · a new "cud" for Sammy Young a new "innocent book" for Austin Murphy a new rain coat for Wayne Cawley, because he's afraid he will shrink if he gets wet more paper so Sherman Tribbitt can add his "John Handcock" to it a "brownette" for Charles Matley (he has all the others) Turn to page 8, please.
