'TWO THE DAILY MAIL, HAGERSTOWN, MD., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1939. STAGE READY FOR MUMMERS Alsatians Are Rapidly Completing Plans For Annual Parade Final instructions to be issued to judges for the big Alsatia Mummers' Parade to be held in this city on HalloAve'en, next Tuesday Bight, have been formulated by the executive committee in charge of the event. Judging will be done from the official stand which is to be erected in r tlie Public Square but the actual awarding of the prizes will be made at the Alsatia clubrooms at 141 West Washington street, immediately following th-a parade. A committee of well-qualified and impartial judges who are not members of the Alsatia Club has been selected and the rules by which they will be- governed have been framed with a view to selection without any bias or favor, the best entries in all diA-isions of the parade. The rules as issued to the judges are as follows : ' Tfct policy of the Alsatia Club fe tfce awarding of prizes is tha •11 individuals, organizations or floats are on an equal basis and any body, float or individual quali tying for a prize, regardless o: race-, nationality or residence, is eligible to receive a prize, at the discretion of the judges: The judges will be stationed N on the : stand in the Public Square and will view the parade as it passes tuat point. When the parade passes the stand the second time on the counter march, the judges will signify to the committee the ones they think eligible for a prize and the ones so designated will report to the Alsatia Club, where the final judging will take place \nd the prizes awarded Every individual, ' organization »r float taking part in the parade will be eligible for a prize, pro rided they are entered in their proper division, with the exception that any band or drum corp. wherever they are assigned in line, jwill be eligible for a prize in the Music Division. (This exception necessary on account of spacing jthe music to best advantage.) Should there be a float or organization accompanied by a band or drum, corp, which is part of tbe float or organization, they are eligible for only one prize, that Is, they are not eligible for a prize in both the Organized Body or Float DiA-isions and also in the Music Division. As an example, if a lodge is accompanied by its drum corp and the drum corp however, only begun and Avhe. completed will be very elaborate it was said. The decorations are bein. rushed to completion in order tha they may be ready by Saturday an illuminated on Saturday and Sun day nights. It is expected tha there will be- many out-of-toAvn vis itors, who, as in past years, wi come to this city prior to the pa rade solely to see the decorations Seats Selling Fast Seats on the temporary bleach ers which will be erected on th east side of the Square are sellin, rapidly. These seats are on sal at the HagerstoAvn News Agencj where it was said that a good sal had been made of them on th first two days that they were of fered. Seating accommodations will b prepared for about two thousand spectators in this choice location in front of the judges stand the seats to be erected by a profes sional seating company of Wash ington, D. C. The seats will be put in place on the day of the parade. is part of the organized body, the body is eligible for a prize. If the organized body is in one section of the parade and the drum corp is in another part of the line of march, then each is eligible for a prize in their respective divisions. Should there be- a float accompanied by an organized body, or vice versa, they are eligible for one prize only in the division they enter. Any such entry Avill be given the option of entering which ever diA^ision they desire. Should any organization enter a body in the Organized Body Division and a float in the Float Division, they are each eligible for a prize in their respectiA'6 diA*isions. Entries in the Float Division •will be giA'en option of entering the Elaborate, Historical or Original Divisions and Avill compete for prizes in those respectiA-e diA r isions. Any musical organization receiving any remuneration, other than prize aAvards, for participating in the parade, will not be eligible for a prize. Where competition is close and prizes .exhausted, honorable mention awards will be made. Prize List Totals $1406 A total of $1406 in cash prizes will be awarded to the selected entries in all divisions according to the complete prize list which •was published in yesterday's papers. The committee in addition to the- above rules points out that "floats" in the best sense of the term can be permitted in the parade. This, it Avas explained, meant that the float marshals reserved the right to refuse to permit any poorly qualified entry to join the parade. Cars poorly decorated with bunting or in some other manner not suggesting cither originality, beauty, or real comedy can not be thus permitted .to mar the beauty of the procession. Furthermore, it Avas stated that floats or other types of entries suggesting marked political bias, prejudice or advertisement cannot be allowed to qualify for entry. j Decorations Progressing j Chairman Tom Cross of the dec- ! orating committee is busy direct- j ing the decoration of the central part of the city. A huge pole was placed in the center of the Public Square- and strands of red, white and blue lights festooned to form a canopy over the entire area of the Square. The decorating has, U.S. IS UNABLE TO GET WORD FROM RUSSIA (Continued from Page 1} confidence the City of Flint would fly the German flag. Further international complications in the case were foreseen if the City of Flint Avere unable to get through the British blockade in the North Sea. It seemed probable that British warships Avould be lying in wait for her and just as likely that she would be under the guard of German submarines—assuming she is in German hands and headed for Germany. The SoA-iet Russian announcement last night that, the ship had been ordered out of the Arctic port of Murmansk after inspection of her cargo did not clarify whether she was in control of a prize crew of IS of her American crew. Whether she still carried her cargo of tractors, grain and other shipments consigned to Britain likewise was in doubt. (The Danish radio, announcing the release of the ship, said the cargo first had been taken off.) Germany has declared that at least part of the cargo was contraband and informed quarters at Berlin insisted that the City of Flint soon Avould be in a German harbor to await action of a prize court to determine disposition of ship and cargo. Study Plans For Flying Torpedo (Continued from Page 1) HoAvever, it has one great disadvantage in its present form—the master plan© and its transmitter must remain in close contact Avith it at all times. This has been shoAvn to be necessary in order effectively to steer the projectile to its target, Because the control engineer must 36 able to see There it is going. "In our teleA'ision torpedo, however. Ave mount an iconoscope or similar television tube, equipped with a large focusing lens which onstitutes the nose- piece of the plans. NOAV Ave can transmit an magine through the iconoscope in .he nose of the flying torpedo to he screen in the cabin of the master plane several miles in the rear. "The control engineer sees the magine of the countryside exactly as though he Avere riding in the torpedo. Thus the engineer steers rhe projectile directly to its objec- tiA'e. "If the engineer lost control of the torpedo, the detonator cap or high explosive Avould be disposed of and there Avould be no explosion upon landing to endanger the operating side." Sanabria said it would be possible to control several such torpedoes from one master plane or from one ground station, and that they could be applied to land, sea and aerial Avarfare. LIMIT TALKS ON EMBARGO Senate Cuts Them To 20 Minutes In Rush To Repeal Neutrality Law TONIGHT'S LUNAR ECLIPSE BARELY MISSES TOTALITY By LESLIE C. BEARD Member of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific Tonight a partial eclipse of the occasions, does not completely dis- WASHINGTON, Oct 27 (jp Weary of its long neutrality debate the Senate placed a drastic limita tion on speech-making today in a drive to act on arms embargo repeal by nightfall. Although Democratic Leadei Barkley failed to win agreement to take the final vote at 5 P. M. EST opposition chieftains accepted his suggestion that no senator talk more than 20 minutes on anj amendment. Earlier this week a 45-minute limit had been adopted Barkley conferred with Adrninis tration lieutenants last night and reported afterward that more than 65 of the 96 senators would vote for the neutrality bill. Concede Defeat The foes conceded defeat, but said that their fight had not been in vain. They expressed hope that the Senate debate had stiffened opposition forces in the House, which will consider the bill next week. "I certainly think the fight has slowed up the Avar fever," said Senator Clark (D-Mo). "We have Avon a great, moral victory." Clark, a leading opponent of repeal, asserted the Senate debate 3ad made it "absolutely clear" that European countries could not expect the United States to participate again in a European conflict. In this connection. Administration senators contended that their posi- ion had been strengthened by President Roosevelt's declaration ast night that the United States is neutral and does not intend to become involved in Avar. Speaking from the White House radio to the NBAV York Herald Tribune Forum, the President said hat those who contend his foreign policies may lead this nation into r are guilty of "one of the worst akes in current history." The Senate was held in session ight hours yesterday in an at- ernpt to clear up a score'of amendments, but opponents objected to meeting after the dinner hour.

Clyde Schlieper and Wes Carroll bettered the unlimited endurance Hight record Thursday. At 3:42 p. m. (6:42 p. m. EST) their time in the air exceeded by one hour the old record of 653 hours, 33 minutes. They said they expected to remain aloft 30 days. The Long Beach fliers took their light pontoon-equipped plane into the air from the Marine Stadium there Sept. 29. They plan to terminate their flight at the stadium next Sunday. Most of their time aloft has been spent in circling above nearby Rosamond dry lake—to eliminate the temptation, the fliers said, to alight. Cans of gasoline and oil and other supplies have been hoisted aboard the plane from an automobile speeding along the dry lake bed. They have surpassed three endurance records during their hours in the air. The first, that for seaplanes, Avas exceeded when they had been aloft 30 hours. They passed the light plane record of 343 hours, 46 minutes, Oct. 13 It was set last August by Hunter and Humphrey Moody at Springfield, 111. The unlimited class endurance record was established July 1, 1935, by Fred and Al Key at Meridian, Miss. • As the partner of Tommy Smith, lost last June on an attempted solo flight across the Atlantic, Schlieper helped set an endurance record for light planes when they remained aloft 21$ hours In a flight T.hnt ended here November 1. moon will occur, visible here. It will just barely miss being total At time of greatest obscuration a little more than 99 per cent of the moon's diameter Avill be coverec by the earth's shadow. The eclipse will begin 6 minutes before midnight, EST, and end at 3:18 a. m. tomorroAV. Time of greatest obscuration Avill occur at 1:36 a. m. This eclipse should prove an interesting spectacle for observers in North and South America, since the entire eclipse Avill be visible from these continents. A lunar eclipse takes place only when the moon is full. The earth's shadow is a cone whose base is the earth and Avhose vortex is somewhere out in space in the direction opposite the sun. The average length of the earth's shadow is 857,000 miles. Its length varies about 14,000 miles, because the earth is not always the same distance from the sun, the shadow being shortest in January Avhen we are closest to the sun and longest in July when the earth "is farthest from the sun. As the moon makes its monthly revolution around the earth at a distance of about 238,000 miles, which is less than the length of the earth's shadoAv, it may happen that it will go into the shadow and be eclipsed, but this rarely happens more than twice a year. Since the moon moA^es eastAvard around the earth its eastern limb will, in case of an eclipse, first come in contact with the shadoAv and, if it happens to pass near enough to the center of the shadoAv so that its entire disk is buried in it, we then have a total eclipse of he moon. The moon, except on very rare appear during a total eclipse because the.refraction of the earth's atmosphere deflects the sunlight around the earth into the shadow and causes the moon to shine Avith a reddish or copper-colored light. If the earth Avere suddenly robbed of its atmosphere during a total lunar eclipse the moon would completely disappear from our VIBAV immediately. Since the shadow of the earth is cone-shaped the diameter of any cross section Avill depend upon its distance from the earth. The maximum diameter at the place Avhere the moon crosses it is 5700 miles, about 2 2-3 times the diameter of the moon. Since the moon moves a distance equal to its own diameter every hour it follows that an eclipse of the moon Avhen central may continue total for almost two hours. When the moon goes into the shadow but passes so far above or below the center that only a portion of its disk is hidden from view, AVS then have a partial eclipse of the moon. The orbits of the moon and earth are so related that the moon gen- eralry passes above or below the shadow without touching it Other- Avise Ave would haA^e a lunar eclipse every month. There is an old legend to the effect that the Man in the Moon keeps the Woman in the Moon in chains most of the time because she is constantly disturbing him by ler meticulous housecleaning activities. However, at more or less regular interA^als he is forced to release her and she then devotes her attention to this domestic performance with slich energy that the .-esulting cloud of dust hides the moon from the eyes of mortal men until she has finished her task. ROOSEVELT RAPS CRITICS OF HIS FOREIGN POLICY NEW YORK, Oct. 27 (#>).— Strongly reaffirming American neu- rality, President Roosevelt last light said critics of his foreign pol- cy Avho have warned it would force American boys to shoulder arms abroad were guilty of "one of the vorst fakes in current history." "It is a deliberate setting tip of an imaginary bogey man," he added austically. This, he asserted in a radio address, is "a shameless and dishonest fake." No persons in any post oE responsibility anywhere in the United States, he said, has ever suggested that American boys be ;ent to fight abroad. Press-Radio Praised The President's speech, marie as he Senate nearecl the final action on his proposal to repeal the arms mibargo, Avas delivered from the White House under the auspices of the NBAV York Herald Tribune Forum on "The Avar's challenge to the United States." The President also praised the 'majority of the press and the radio" for "objective reporting" of he interuaional situation. He said his had worked so Avell that he vished "for more of it in the field i of domestic news." After repeating that this country s neutral and does not intend to et involved in the Avar, the President said: * "That we can be neutral in hought as Avell as in act is, as I lave said before, impossible of fulfillment because again, the people of this country, thinking things .hrough calmly and without pre- udice, have been and are making ip their minds about relative mer- ts of current events on other con- inents. "It is a fact increasingly mani- est that presentation of real news ias sharpened the minds and the udgment of men and \vomen every- vhere in these days of real public discussion—and AVe Americans be- r ,'m to know the difference between he truth on the one side and the alsehood on the other, no matter low often the falsehood is iterated ind reiterated. Repitition does not ransform a lie into a truth." Discusses Propaganda Disc-using propaganda, he said it vas perhaps a good thing that Congress had been "deluged" \\Mth it rom time to time in behalf of var- ous causes. "Members of the House of Rep- esentatives and the Senate," he explained, "begin to discriminate nowadays- between honest, spontaneous, unsolicited expressions of opinion on the part of voters and the propaganda typo of mass appeals. In another portion of his speech, the President said there Avere two distinct dangers to democracy— the "peril from those who seek the fulfillment of ideals at a pace too fast for the machinery of the modern body politic to function—people who by insistence on too great speed foster nn oligarchic form of government such as Communism, or Nazism or Fascism." "The other group, which presents an equal danger," lie said, "is composed of that small minority which complains that the democratic processes are inefficient as well as being slow, people who would have the whole of government put into the hands of a little group of thos-? Avho have proved their efficiency in lines of specialized science or specialized private business. "They equally, and in most cases unconsciously too, are in effect advocating the oligarchic form of government, Communism, or Nazism, or Fascism." Extreme rightists and extreme leftists, he said, should not be taken out and shot against the wall "for they sharpen the argument and make us realize the A-alue of the democratic middle course—especially if that middle course, in order to keep up with the times, is 'just a little bit left of center.'" He gave four definitions as folIOAVS: "A radical is a man with both feet firmly planted—in the air. "A conservative is a man with tAvo perfectly good legs who, however, has neA'er learned to walk. "A reactionary is a somnambulist AA-alking backAvards. "A liberal is a man who uses his legs and his hands at the behest of his head." GOD'S DENIAL BROUGHT WAR, STATES POPE (Continued from Page 1) tremes Avhich lead inevitably to a drift to\vard chaos." "Once the authority of God and the sway of his laAv are denied in this way," Pope Pius declared in his letter of more than 11,000 Avords to all Catholic bishops, "civil authority as an ineA r itable result tends to attribute to itself that absolute autonomy Avhich belongs exclusively to the Supreme Maker. "It puts itself in the place of the Almighty and elevates the state or group into the last end of life, the supreme criterion of moral and juridical order, and therefore forbids every appeal to the principles of natural reason and Christian conscience." \ "Fortunately, false principles do not ahvays exercise their full influence, especially Avhen the age-old Christian traditions on which peoples have, been nurtured remain still deeply, even if unconsciously, rooted in their hearts," the Pope declared. This Avas interpreted as a reference to such devoutly Catholic peoples as the Poles, Poland, the pontiff said, "has the right to generous brotherly sympathy of the whole world Avhile it awaits ... the hour of resurrection in harmony Avith principles of justice and peace." Pope Pius described his "expectation and conviction" that each party will respect its "plighted word" in treaties as an indispensable condition of peace. He said peace could not be achieved until "both sides arc ready to enter into discussion and avoid recourse to force or threats of force in case of delays, hindrances,-changes or disputes." The Pope acknowledged that treaties might become outdated AVJ.UT. the passing of time. In §uch cases, he said, "recourse should be had to frank discussion with a Av to modifying the treaty or making another in its stead." "But to consider treaties on principle as ephemeral/' he declared, 'and tacitly to assume the authority of rescinding them unilaterally when they no longer are to one's advantage Avould be to abolish all mutual trust among states." Turning from causes of the pres- ut Avar to prospects of a, more enduring settlement at its> conclusion, the pontiff asked Avhcther there Avould be a new international order "animated by justice and by equity toAvards all" or "repetition of ancient and recent errors." The hour of victory, he warned, is "the hour of temptation" and the danger exists that "settlements and decisions born in such condition may be nothing else than injustice under the cloak of justice."

Grew Planned To Blow Up Vessel (.Continued from Pag« 1) Avhich sets off the blast upon contact with its target. "This torpedo," he continued, "has been successfully demonstrated and can function at present. City of Flint thereupon began a slow, "unpleasant," trip northward through "terribly cold" seas. Enroute, he continued, the German creAvmen planted a heavy charge of explosives in the engine- room, prepared to blow up the ship iC they encountered trouble. Later they entered an area of floating ice, and the Germans painted out the freighter's name, substituting "Alf" for "City of Flint" and painting the Danish flag on the side. McConnochie said it Avas untrue there Avas anything Avrong either with the engines or navigation facilities of the City of Flint. The ship pursued a dodging course north and east, keeping a sharp lookout for British and French warships but none Avere encountered. McConnochie said a water shortage developed that forced the vessel to put in at Port Tromsoe. There the British survivors Avere permitted to land. The radio operator said that because oC his manner of speech he Avas able to mix Avith them and land successfully. McConnochie said that the American crew members, although Avorried by their plight, were not treated badly by their German captors and that nothing untOAvard had happened to any at the time he slipped off the ship at Tromsoe.

The largest and most powerful American Navy in 17 years was told by President Roosevelt today that it was the nation's chief reliance to keep out of the European war. "The most promising way to preserve our peace lies in the ability to defend our sea frontiers," Mr. Roosevelt said in a navy day letter to acting Secretary Charles Edison. "That peace we shall strive to maintain by all honorable and advanced means. With the world in arms, this country is compelled as never before to maintain an adequate and positive defense." The President's letter constituted almost the only official recognition of the day. Officers and men themselves were too busy with the neutrality patrol, with training recruits and building new ships to celebrate. Navy day found the fleet operating under virtual wartime conditions. Visitors were barred from ships and shore stations. Movements of all fighting ships on the Atlantic coast patrol and Avith the main fleet in the Pacific were secret. It is no secret, however, that the largest number of ships is at sea since the 1922 limitation treaty iunked or retired half the World War navy. There were 321 ships of all types in commission then. There are 3SS manned now, Includ- ng 40 World War destroyers put Dack in service to reinforce the neutrality patrol. The navy has 586 ships of all types. Workers in crowded government and commercial shipyards are driving rivets on 103 craft. Germany's spectacular undersea sinking of a British battleship and an aircraft carrier and Nazi air raids on fleet bases have failed apparently to shake official confidence in surface vessels. The navy, by all indications, intends to speed the construction of more and larger battleships just as if a U-boat had not sunk Britain's 28,150-ton Royal Oak. Official circles believe that Congress will be asked for funds to start two more 45000-ton floating fortresses, sister ships of the two on which the first rivets are to be driven soon. More than $900,000,000 will be required for next year, by preliminary budgetary estimates, to continue work on vessels on the ways, start the two additional battleships, a score or more other craft and several hundred planes, and provide for the increase of 29,000 men whom Mr. Roosevelt ordered recruited. Some Congressional Navy committee members have estimattt upwards of $1,000,000 will %• sought at the January session, compared Avith $773,000,000 provided this year. By 1944, the Navy hopes to reach the goal set up in the 1938 expansion act: 18 battleships, approximately 45 cruisers, 150 destroyers, 56 submarines, eight. aircraft carriers and 3,000 warplanes. BRITAIN CALLS VOLUNTEERS (Continued from Page 1) ner at Britain by bombing raids and action against shipping. (The French, hoAveA-er, felt that a Gernan offensive might come with any break in the weather.) NaA r al sources said it was probable that German surface craft other than the pocket battleship Deutschland and whatever other •aiders are already at sea could slip through the Norh sea blockade. Visibility in that area RA-cn on the clearest Avinter day is only five miles. A wrecken German submarine containing between .50 and 60 bodes was found on the treacherous 5oodAvin Sands, six miles of[ the \entish coast in the Straits of Dover. Gunfire Avas heard a), nearby Deal on Wednesday, but nothing could be seen until the ebb tide yesterday revealed the wreck. Raiders, the British pointed out, cannot operate indellnitely Avithout refueling, and they are hopeful they can detect mid-ocean rendezvous or get wireless warning of attacks in time to catch the raiders. Typical of Britain's mobilization is the use oC deaf mutes for the ear-shattering task of shot polishing the interior of shells.

During this harvesting period Mr. Funkhouser hauled 2S8.640 pounds of tomatoes, 144.3 tons, Avhich figures IS tons to the acre. These tomatoes brought Mr. Funkhouser 1.880.
