Home Country Appreciated More After Jjvvmg Abroad An American has but fo live for m while in a foreign country like Japan to appreciate the blessings of his own homeland, Col. ' Robert T. Fincke of Camp Detrick told the. Rotary Club of Frederick Wednesday noon. Ik « pre-Thanksgivin* message, the head of the Air Fore* liaison office at Camp Detrick gave Hotar- i«ns a lot of reasons for being Hmnkful they were born in the TJnlted'States. ' . Colonel Fincke compared the city of Frederick with Furimaki, a Japanese city of comparable population near-wnich he was stationed -with the Air Force from 1947 to 1«49. He related these startling -facts: · . - . Furimaki packs its 20,000 inhabitants into an area which -would cover, Toughly, only about two blocks on either side of Patrick street in Frederick. It averages about SO persons to every two- story house. Heated By Charcoal There is no central heating in all of Furimaki. Homes are heated by smalL charcoal fires in earthen bowls. Public buildings- schools, stores, offices-rare completely unheated despite the iact Furimaki is in about "the same climate zone as is Frederick. Electricity in Furimaki is used for lighti only, , Residents are rationed to one SO-watts bulb in each room. Street lights, also limited to 50 watts, are blocks apart. Furimaki ha« only one small movirf theater. It is unheated in winter, uhventilated in summer, j Schools are crowded, with 90 to 100 students in each classroom. Transportation is limited to walking or use of bicycles or one-horse wagon*. "I do not need to give you' comparisons for Frederick or any other American city," Colonel Fincke said. "I vill leave it for you to decide whether or not we- should be thankful for what we have in this' wonderful country of ours." W. L. Brittain, vice president^ presided at Wednesday's meeting in the absence o£ Clyde Honey. Colonel Fincke was introduced by Charles S. V. Sanner, also of Camp Detrick. Visiting Rotations introduced were William F. Moser, Dover, N. J.; W. C. Field, Lake Mabopac, N. Y.; Al Sweney. Brunswick, Md.: W. P. Wilke, Hammond. Ind., and Frank Cummings, Catortsville, Md. Other visitors were William Burton. Morion J. Ellin and Wilson Ballard. To Hold Hearings On Plan To Drop Trains # CARLISLE, Pa., Nov. 22 JP]-Conflicting claims as to the earn-i ings of two Harrisbnrg-Hagers- town, Md., Pennsylvania Railroad; passenger trains will be aired at a- future hearing on the railroad's application to drop them. The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission heard testimony yesterday-from the railroad that two commuter trains through the Cumberland Valley were operated at a loss of $78,178 annually. Counsel for the Shippensburg, J»a., Chamber of Commerce, the Borough Council and the Commuters Association of Pennsylvania disputed the figures in. cross-examining railroad witnesses. The two groups are protesting proposed discontinuance of the trains. Examiner George Stuart continued the hearing until a future date when the protesting groups will present their testimony. A date Will be fixed later. Counsel for the protesting groups claimed the railroad was seeking to drop the trains to force passengers to use bus lines in which the railroad held an interest. Charles T. Ueu, Philadelphia, PRR transportation engineer, denied that contention. On* of the commuter trains leaves Hagerstown at 5:30 a. m., and arrives at Harrisburg at 7:40 a. m. The other leaves Harrisburg at 5:40 p. m., and arrives at 7:40 p. There are two other trains operat- ing between Harrisburg and Hagerstown, making stops at Mcchan- icsburg. Newville, Shippensburg, ·Chambersburg and Greencastle. Dropping of the two commuter trains would leave New Kingston, Greason. Scotland and Marion without railroad passenger serviced m.
