Tkc Frederick. M«.. FrMav. J»Iv 19, J»48 ' Two Jailed For Theft Of Scrap Metal State Police believe they took a major step Thursday toward halt- is* theirs of machinery and scrap metal on farms ia Carroll and ad- joininf counties. They reported the arrest of two Baltimore Negroes, said to have admitted recent thefts on a farm near Haraey. la. jail at Westminster, awaiting hearings next Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock before Magistrate Raymond L Benson on larceny charges, are Charles Green. ·»5. acd William Siade Washington, 60. both colored, of Baltimore Supplied License Number They were arrested Thursday morning in Relsterstown by State Trooper 1-c Fran* Badger on information supplied by Mrs. David W. Kess. near Hamey. who had reported on Monday that a truck occupied by several colored men had removed machinery and scrap metal from her farm without her permission. She supplied the license number of the truck Mrs Hess was to have attempted to identify the men at the Carroll county jail Thursday evening, but officials said the men confessed to the thefts before she wa called Officials said there have been widespread thefts of metal equipment and scrap from farms sn various direction* from Baltimore for some time. They said several -,\ere caught at Elkton last Saturday while removing metal from a foundry. They have had reports of thefts from farms m Howard county and some pipe had been reported stolen at Libertytown Motivated By Price The current prices of scrap metal have caused Baltitnoreans to raid farms. In some cases offers to buy the metal have been made, they said, but in most cases the "scrap collectors" have just taken what they wanted where they found it." The Carroll County Sheriffs office received a complaint over the week-end that a manure spreader had been stolen from one farm. State Police said farmers can help break-up the raids by promptly reporting information to near- e%t law enforcement officials They credited Mrs. Hess with a prompt assist in locating the two men arrested Thursday- McGKATn GIVEN TASK Philadelphia. July 15 (--Senator J. Howard McGrath. who engineered the nomination of President Truman by the Democratic convention here, today was given the job of electing him in November. 'Without opposition and after he declared that the Demcorats can win. McGrath was reelected chairman, of the national committee for a four year term. McGrath told the national party leaders that if they can "keep the -.earn together"* he is confident they can elect President Truman and Senator Alben Barkley of Kentucky, the number two man of the ticket.

Truman today formally called Con- ' ' gress back for a special j-ummer session. Back in the White House where he hopes to stay rour more years.

The - people, he said, will make their : decision not by words, not by the party platform, but "on the record as it has been written " Windfall For Party From a political viewpoint, the special session could be regarded as a windfall for the financially hard-pressed Democratic National Committee. Messages from the President to Congress attract nationwide interest and can focus the issues perhaps more sharply than a series of cross-country speeches And--important to the National Committee--it doesn't cost anv- The Last Entry (Maiior Picnic To B« j ; Held Next Wednesday !
