The quality of service offered with respect to operating equipment and terminal facilities cannot be taken to be of .a, higher sf^hdard than that now maintained by the protesting bus carriers. The rates offered are no lower than those now applied. And applicant (American Bus Lines) conceded that the bus service rendered by the protesting carriers is of high standard as prevails anywhere in the nation and that the rates they apply are 'generally the lowest. JiUnal conclusion of the commis- £ion was: "Upon considering the entire showing made by American in-support of its application ioi- a Certificate of public convenience and necessity, the commission finds that the evidence presented is inadequate and insufficient to permit the commission to make the requisite finding that the public convenience and necessity i-e- quire the proposed operation."

Retire eoming Year "This must be my last year as pastor of your church," said Dr. Richard Van dor Las at the conr gregational dinner in the Presbyterian church Wednesday, but none of the 100 or more guests seemed to take their 82-year-,oid young pastor seriously, not even, when he stated he ,was slipping. He tried to emphasize his. point saying he had gon^ to bed "with one slipper on when he y/eni to Fresno to visit his granddaughters at Christmas. , •; Then'he introduced Walter S'an- delin, president of the Presbyterian board of ; trustees, who showed the results of Dr. yan der Las' work with the board dyr- ing the past year. ,. . Among the things brought out in the reports called for were ttiat, despite this being the shortest year, with only nine months, '^ue to a change in the beginning of its .fiscal year, the church has made and paid out more than $4000 and is now clear of all debt, with about $100 in the bank. Out of this amount a new fur- hace has been purchased, the Organ has been changed to electric power, repairs have been made, the lawn resodded.x and various minor expenses, and only $1200 of the salary for Dr. Van der Las out of the amount. It was pointed out that a number of things had been needed for the church which cost the church nothing, the major item being the covering of the church fioor with carpet, a $500 item.' It was taken care of by Miss Esther Redwine, who saw the need and had the work done before anyone knew it had been ordered. The financial report for the church wa^ made by William Bromley. He was rather proud of his $100 balance, until Mrs. Bromley gave her report for one of tlie .women's groups. After paying all their debts, which were good-sized, their account showed $124.62— several dollars more than her husband's, she said. The report of ' the youngest group organized, the Seven-Thirty Club, reported a sub.ntantial contribution of more than $2000, and all bills paid. Mrs. D. W. McKinney told 6f the activities of her group of women, which included missionary work,- contributions, tlie v/ork ot entertaining visiting church notables and all of the "accomplishments of the club were paid for with funds raised by the women. Their dividends proved sufficient to pay their bills andi carry a smaU balance. The potluck dinner had moi'e than enough of all kinds of good things to eat and was finished off with applie pie and coffee, served by a church group. Dr. Van der Las had the last word, saying, "I am gratified with the report. In each church I have presided oyer I have left it with a better balance than I started with. And I am leaving you this year." With which a prayer was said and the meeting v/as dismissed.

Williams Woman In Piercy Wreck The cai-s belonging to Lloyd F. Cooke of Piercy and Mrs. Annie j Hayhes of Williams, both traveling south, collided Saturday morning on the Redwood highway as Mr. Cooke drove his car out of his driveway.

The 20 zones have been'achieved at the escpense of 12 parking meters that were pinching pennies on some of the corners and their take is lost to the city in the effort to provide safety for pedestrians and motorists. The penalty for appropriating one of the forbidden spots cah be as high as $50, so when parking be sure you don't see red. The score card kept at police headquarters shows 84 accidents in the city during 1947; 21 injured and no deaths. In 1946 the accidents were 97, with 33 injured and one death. Quite an improvement, due in part to police efforts to put the bee on fast driving. The map of the city used in this connection shows that 12 of the 84 accidents the past year were on West Standley street and were due to blind corners where shrub- Cornish Songs Were Heard Here There were over' 500 people attending the Grass Valley Choir concert at the Methodist church Sunday, June 11.

These people have retained many of the traditions, of their forefathers, and one of them is the singing of songs in groups. Especially at Christmas time they gather in the streets and sing. Many of the songs have never been published and have been retained by being handed down through the generations. Many of which date back to John Wesley, founder of the Methodist church. It seems the musk; that was sung in the ch.uVches, and especially for Christmas, was of such doleful nature it was not greatly enjoyed. The people of Cornwall objected and established this custom, singing compositions of their own, most of which show the influence of Handel. Of special interest Sunday were "Sound! Sound!", "Lol He Comes!" and "Lo! The Eastern Sages Rise!" There were many others equally rich, in tone and rhythm. The program was so widely acclaimed that Dr. Charles G. Linde- niann, pastor of the church, feels certain he can repeat the visit of the, choir in the future. In the meantime, they are often heard on radio broadcasts, such as the half hour on the "Salute to the Nation" program on NBC, on which the best performers are heard. nually to Santa Cruz County agriculturists.
