FOUR THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD.. MONDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1939. DRIVER CHARGED AFTERWILD RIDE An. alleged drunken driver late Friday night established the questionable distinction of driving down South Mountain and over the •winding Burkittsville- Knoxville road during a pouring rain in an open automobile without lights. The driver, Herschel Himes, reflected on his achievements Saturday in the Frederick jail, while State Police summed up the charges to be placed against him. They will include larceny of au automobile, operating while intoxicated and operating without a license. State Officer Norman Boone, who | night traced Himes' route from Gaplaud to Knorville, said the man was considerably intoxicated when he was found in the car on a Knoxville street. Deputy Sheriff Earl Lowell accompanied Boone in the investigation. The officers were told by Elwood Eakle, near Gapland, that the topless roadster had been taken from him. It was added that Himes was suspected of the theft, but was believed to have left the vicinity. When placed under arrest. Himes had little to say. He is being held for a hearing. MOTORIST INJURED H. D. Clever, Clearspring, sustained a fractured femur and shoulder injury in an accident about one mile south of Clearspring last about 7 o'clock. He was taken to the Washington County Hospital in an ambulance. ._ cms., MARKETS Hagerstown's Modern Food Shopping Center 118-120 WEST FRANKLIN ST.

DBBALTA This map shows the diplomatic wall which the smaller nations— Turkey, Rumania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Yugoslavia and Greece—are apparently trying to get Russia and Italy help them build a fence in the European war's eastern front and guard against the spread southeastward of Nazi German domination. The upper part of the line is along the demarcation Russia and Germany set up after the Nazi conquest of Poland. The presence of Turkey's foreign minister, Sukru Saracoglu, in Moscow caused speculation that Turkey might take a leading part in formation of the Balkan neutrality bloc. The war in Europe seems to pale all other news into insignificance, yet we are over 130 million people in this country continuing to live or anyway attempting to live our peaceful lives as if nothing happened. Most of us, in this large cosmopolitan community, find it pretty hard to remain neutral, not only in thought, but even otherwise. Every belligerent country has a large contingent of its nationals spread all over the map of New York and what with the organized aggressive bands and bunds of Nazis and Communists who through the passive tolerance of our government agencies poison our atmosphere with their insidious propaganda. One does not have to cross the pond to do any fighting;'he can satisfy his bellicose desires by using his fists on 42nd street. As usual minorities are always noisier than those who have public opinion behind them. There was no need of straw votes polls by such reliable agencies as Fortune magazine and the Gallup Institute of Public Opinion to find out that about 90 per cent of people in this country favor the cause of the Allies, even if we are against participating directly in the conflict. Yet the loudest and bitterest propagandists in this country are the paid agents of Hitler and Stalin who would make us believe that Americans favor the policy of aggression and highway robbery of the Nazis and Communists. For inflicting such an insulting aspersion on our national character the Kuhns and the Browders should be shipped somewhere far away from here. The war is young yet and the fireworks have not really started in this peaceful corner of the earth. Determined as we are we will probably manage to keep out of actual participation in the conflict but we will have plenty of battles on our hands right here. Our neutrality offers a fertile ground for foreign agitators in this country and when speaking of agitators we must exclude the British and the French who do not find any need to convert American public opinion to their way of thinking because we do not have to be converted to the justice of the democratic ideals. What we have to fear most Is the crude, insinuat- ing propaganda of the dictator's agents; we must beware of spies and of all kinds of smooth talkers whose types are well known to some of us from twenty-five years ago. We find them everywhere: in the restaurants, on the streets, in tSe movie houses and as a rule they are very eager to engage everyone in conversation. With the right of freedom of thought, we want peace at home; and we can only get it by avoiding all contact with foreign agitators planted right -' here on our doorsteps , by Mr. Goebbels and other international propaganda mongers.

Orders Pouring In; Payrolls Hopping BreasI-o'-Chicken TUNA NEW YORK, Oct. 2 (£>).—Order- books of rail equipment manufacturers, shipyards and machinery makers are filling with, business which will make jobs and payrolls for months to come. The accumulation of these backlogs in durable goods industries, largely derived frfom domestic sources, accounts partly for the optimism on business prospects in financial circles. Unlike purchases for re-filling stocks of raw materials and retail shelves, it vras pointed out, business gets a relatively durable pickup from revival in the heavy industries because it takes lots of time, money and work to turn out ships, industrial equipment and modern machinery. Lecture Given To Parents By Chief A mother and father from a remote section of Pennsylvania were given a lecture by Capt. of Police Carl H. McCleary Saturday night before they were sent on their way. Desk Clerk Le^vis Downey received a call at the police station that a lonesome baby was howling in a locked automobile on East Baltimore street. Patrolman. J. S. Lillard went to the scene and awaited return of the parents who presumably had been shopping. The baby was reported to have been crying for about an hour. Capt. McCleary pointed out to the couple the dangers of locking the doors and leaving an infant in an auto.
