Boulevard Accidents Appal Three Senators BALTIMORE. Dec. 4 (/P)--Three State Senators, appalled at the growing number of traffic deaths on the B a l t i m o r e - W a s h i n g t o n Boulevard, today declared their determination to "do something" about conditions on the heavily traveled highway. All three said they would request immediate action from the State Roads Commission and the State Police to reduce driving hazards on the boulevard. Senator C. Ferdinand Sybcrt (D- Howard) suggested better lighting and the installation of a center strip to separate north-bound and south-bound traffic. "Most accidents happen in the darkness, on unlighted stretches of the road, and are, for the most part, head-on crashes," Sybert said. "This type of accident could be avoided by installation of a strip in the center of the highway, dividing traffic, and the installation of electric lights along the boulevard." Sen. John Grayson Turnbull D- XUE SONGS OF CHJKIiTMAB ffluitraied Hy Watt Scott On the day before Christmas, 1865, a young American preacher journeyed from Jerusalem to Bethlehem. That night he stood in the fieWs where the shepherds had watched over their flocks on a night of wonder long ago. OWR. 1951 BY NEA SERVICE. «NC The shepherds were still tending their flocks. As he watched, Phillips Brooks, destined to become one of the most beloved and famed of American clergymen, stirred with emotion. In his mind he looked back through the centuries to that other unforgettable night. Three years later he was to perpetuate the beauty of the scene in an immortal Christinas carol. ; a-sj Balto) said he was "shocked" at Lhe "appalling toll" ,the road has taken, and said "we must take immediate steps to c o r r e c t the hazardous conditions" on the boulevard. "1 will ask the State Roads Commission to make a study of the danger points and eliminate them," Turnbull added. Sen, John R. Fletcher (R-Prince Georges said: "Division of the north and southbound lanes of the highway would cut down on the toll.

Apple Library In keeping with the thristmas season, the Joseph Henry Apple Library at Hood College is sponsoring a number of interesting exhibits. Through the courtesy of Berger's Book Mart, there is an unusual display jof old Bibles in the table exhibit case on the second floor. Among these are copies of the fol- lowing: the Vulgate Bible, a Latin translation, printed in 1566; Martin Luther's German translation, dated 1748; and the New Testament, the first book in Greek published in America, dated 1800. These are illustrated with woodcuts depicting the religious art of the various periods. One of the Bibles is especially valuable, as it has a genuine Durer print. Notice the designs formed by the gilt edges on two of the volumes. In thr axhibit case on the left of the circulation desk is a creche, wshich was made in Germany about twenty years ago. It is a representation of the stable at Bethlehem with the Infant Jesus, surrounded by the Virgin Mary, .Joseph, and adoring shepherds and Magi. Also on display are Christmas annuals, books and stories, and a set of cards portraying Christmas around the world. The creche, the annuals, many of the books, and the cards are loaned by Miss Katharine E. Dutrow, librarian, who is especially interested in the collecting «f bookc jects dealing with Christmas. On the ground floor »r» two Christmas "Book Trees", decorated with gayly colored book jackets, calling attention to some of the Interesting books, both fiction and nonfiction, in the library.
