PAGE *f The News, Frederick, Md., Ttaur»d»y, November 29, 1951 Test Air Raid Drill Is Held NEW YORK, Nov. 28, OPl-For 10 minutes today, New York's 8,- O00.QOO people cringed in grim. ««rie silence beneath imaginary atom bombs. It was the first, all-out air raid practice since World War II. And there won't be another practice -alert The next--if it comes-will be the real thing. "A success," Mayor Vincent R. fcnpellitteri labeled the test. Said Civil Defense Director Arthur W. Wallander. "I feel it would go just as well if an actual raid occurred." He called it New York City's "pattern for survival." It was a matter-of-fact business, carried on for the most part without smiles, with a gnawing consciousness of what it might foreshadow. City's Roar Subsides The vast, teeming city became a monument to fear within instants after the sirens wailed out their warning at 10:33 a. nx (EST). The great, pulsing roar of New York faded abruptly, then snapped off as though some giant switch iad been pulled. Pigeons w h e e l e d nervously over deserted streets, the flap of their xvings clearly audible in the silence. In the busiest streets in ail the world, the droning - hubbub, the jarring toot of horns, the mad forward surge of crowds ceased. Again silence was so complete that the "click-click" of traffic lights could be heard as they changed from red to green and back agaiu. Five thousand persons were swept off Times Square as though by an unseen band. Not a thing moved as the barker's din of Broadway subsided. Funeral Mass Interrupted From tier of the Empire State building's 102-story grandeur, ve- netian blinds snapped shut with military precision in thousands of windows. Then the office workers headed for shelter. Twelve couples in line for marriage licenses were sent to cover in the municipal building. A priest broke into a funeral mass at St. Patrick's Cathedra] to tell worshipers to stay where they were. Across the street, skaters hailed their rhythmic ballets in the Plaza's ice ring and clicked clumsily off to shelter on their skates. Thirty-five thousand people inside Rockefeller Center's 35 buildings took cover within four minutes. Bank tellers scooped tens o£ thousands of dollars in loose cash into strong boxes and fled to shelter. The City's Board of Eslimnte meeting halted and officials went to basement shelters in City Hall. The complaining voices of wrangling lawyers grew still in courts of justice. They stuffed documents in their pockets and left for one of the city's 804 designated shelters. Judges in their robes mingled with traffic violators, whom they had sentenced a moment before and with others awaiting sentence Prisoners at the bar of justice were whisked to shelter. Jurors were segregated under cover so the trials they were hearing would not be affected, Macy's huge department store cleared its first floor in five minutes,. Not to be outdone, its bitter rival, Gimbel s, did the same thing in three minutes. Damage Heavy In Collision One man was injured and several thousand dollars damage done about 4 o'clock \Vednesday afternoon in a series o£ accidents on Route 40 about IVfc miles west of New Market. Leon Grimm, 25, Boonsboro, was at Frederick Memorial Hospital with a fractured right leg and head lacerations. His condition was reported satisfactory. State Police remained at the scene until after last midnight to prevent further accidents at the scene, . State Trooper James Rou^ee, who said his investigation is being continued, reported that Grimm was operating a truck with road cleaning broom, the property of T. Edgie Russell Co,, this city, when a truck loaded with stone crashed into the broom and truck. He said the truck was being operated by James Dawson Carroll, 20. Cooksville. and that the equipment belonged to Roland Albert Barth, Ellicott City. Tractor-Trailer Leaves Road Next a tractor ano trailer owned by the Baltimore Pittsburgh Express, operated by Frank G. Hall, 35, Pittsburgh, tried to avoid further collision, ran off the highway and upset. Then a truck operated by Hobart M Mullinix, 55. Ml, Airy, went off the left side of ihe highway to avoid a collision and ran into a field, scattering concrete blocks en route. Trooper Roiuee said Carroll saw a cloud of dust behind the sweeper and thought a truck had gone off ths road and was back on the highway after scattering the dust. His truck plowed into the broom and Russell truck before upsetting, scattering stone over the highway The Russell truck wa.s upset and Earth's truck was demolished. Damage to the Baltimore Pittsburgh Express tractor and trailer and cargo could not be estimated immediately. The trailer was loaded with bathtubs and plumbing fixtures. Damage to the tractor and trailer was estimated in excess of $1,000 Damage to the cargo may exceed that figure, the owner said Heavy equipment of Earl H. Cline, Linden Hill";, was called to move the heavy tractor and trailer. Trooper H. P. O'Brien managed to keep at least onp lane open for traffic while the stone and equipment wns being rcmdvcd from the highway. Trooper ROU/.CC snid no rharpos have been preferred pending coki- pletion of his investigation. Old Station Property Sold Historic old B. O. passenger station at Market and tast AH Saints streets, changed h a n d s attain, Wednesday. The rambling, red brick building was transferred in a contract of tale by Mr. and Mrs. A. 1. Ellin, Frederick, to Mr. and Mrs. William S. Hood, Bartholows' TV and electrical appliance dealers. Abandoned as a passenger station October 13, 1948 the property had belonged to the railroad since 1853. It probably reached its most important historic point w h e n President Lincoln's tram stopped there and he addressed Frederick townspeople and the Army of the Potomac, October 25, 1862. During the past three years since abandoned as a depot, it has been operated as, rented property by the nailroad owners who leased the lower part of the old building to Ruhland C. Boyer, operator of a produce market Bought For S30.000 About a year ago. the late Francis Petrott and A. I. Ellin, both of Frederick, purchased the site for approximately $30,000 it was reported December 23. 1950. At the death of Mr. Petrott, his partner in the investment took over the deed from the Petrott estate. Yesterday. Boyer, a f o r m e r tenant of the building, as agent foi George M. Chaplinc Realty Office, completed a long negotiated contract of sale between the Ellins as genera nnd in* Hoods »a purchasers. The sale price i* unusual, the realty company's head said but is agreed between the contracting parties as calling for 247 consecutive monthly payments of S300 each starting January 1, 1952; with the deed to be turned over to the purchaser upon final payment. Taxes, upkeep and repairs are to be undertaken by the purchaser. Mr. Hood is quoted as eventually expecting to convert the property into modern stores and apartments. The purchaser !s from a prominent county family. When he returned from Army service in 1940, he took over the operation of his grandfather's general s t o r e at Bartholows. -Since he has added television .sets and electrical appliances, building up a large business in this and neighboring Montgomery county.
