Walks, Driveway, And Parking Space; End CWA Improvement In Two Weeks Local Crews Extinguish Two Chimney Fires The local fire fighting crews were called to extinguish' two chimney fires this week. The first of these fires occurred at the Edward Carey residence on North Earl street at Burd. The Cumberland Valley Hose company crew extinguished the fire, there being no damage done. The second chimney blaze occurred at the residence of Dan Suders at about 11 o'clock Wednesday morning. The Vigilant Hose company crew extinguished this fire and reported no damage done by the blaze. Over heated flues was the cause attributed for both fires. LIBRARIANS 0 F DISTRICT MEET LOCAL JOLLEGE Mrs. Hale And Miss Mc-Williams Address Meet-' ing Of 32 Delegates Miss Young Speaks The college and its library staff were hosts to the librarians of the Cumberland Valley district on Tuesday. The meeting began at 10:30 o'clock and lasted all day. Mrs. Lee Hale was one of the speakers on the afternoon program. In her talk she told the visitors of the founding, the means of suport, and the success of Shippensburg'S Public library. Many of the visitors in Bpected the town library after the meeting had adjourned. Miss Elizabeth McWillams, dean of -women at the college was' one of the speakers at the morning session. She used as her topic, "Gardens and Garden Books". In her address she spoke of the different kinds of garden books, among which were mentioned those of a sentimental nature, or philosophical in vein. She discussed the best sources of material on planting, landscaping, wild flowers and gardens of the same, rock or bog gardens, and the construction of gardens around pools. Miss McWilliams' talk will appear in the Pennsylvania Library Notes, a professional publication for librarians. In connection with the local dean's subject, a display of garden books was placed in the main reading room of the library. The books were obtained from the college and state libraries, and from Miss McWilliams' personal library. Miss Shorey, head of the York public library told the group about the new Martin Memorial library of that city. The funds for the erection of this building were obtained through a be-( Continued On Page Ten) Estimate Crop Damages In Dust Storm Area $30,000,000; Farmers Hope For Rain An Aspociatpd Press writer Golngic8l , mokes the statement that ' crop J n II J i l lI. i Il-M- (1U IIIlilffH ,liiV Llfll MLII ULrU B L pn.fl00.000 by the sgrinnUurists of th Midwest rp.lative to the du3t storm area in Colorado. Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. In these states there are approximately 15,000,000 acres that have suffered the most serious consequences of the paralyzing, soil denuding and crop destroying dust storm. Within this area, relief rolls are carrying well above 20,000 families who have had all types of employment shut off. These figures pertain to the brewing zone of the recurring dust storm, which zone comprises the greater portion of the states before named. . The crop damages largely concern wheat. In the Texas Panhandle, Walter Barlow, a grain elevator operator of the section, says a conservative estimate of the loss to wheat growers alone ranges between $18,000,000 and $20,000,000. Farmers all over the brewiajr tone of the storm area say that the wheat crop is an entire failure and the onlv means of offsetting this loss will be to plant larger row crops. However, row crops, including corn ynll not have a start this Sunrise Easter Service Rev. William J. Schultz, pastor of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Orrstown, has arranged for a special sunrise Easter service, to be held at 6 o'clock. The program will include several hymns, including "Sunrise" and "Christ Arose"; scripture reading; confirmation service; and a pantomime and chorus. FIRE DESTROYS WEST PART OF CRAMER HOUSE Estimate Damage At $2,000; Exploding Cartridges Wake Neighbors Starts In Chimney Fire broke out in the farmhouse on the J. Calvin Cramer farm near Oakville early Wednesday morning that resulted in an estimated damage of $2,000. The fire was detected about 2:30 in the morning by the family of Arthur Cramer, son of J. Calvin Cramer, who live on the farm. Both Mr. and Mrs. Cramer and their son, Ellis, had been in Shippensburg Tuesday evening, attending church services. Returning home about 10 o'clock, everything was apparently safe. The cook stove in the kitchen had had no fire all evening, but a slow fire was being kept up in the stove in the living room adjoining. Both rooms are located in the west end of the house and the stove in each uses one central chimney built against the end wall. Apparently the strong west wind, of Tuesday night fanned a stray spark into a blaze in this chimney, where it is thought the fire broke out. Since Mr. Cramer's sleeping room is located directly above the kitchen, he was the first to know of the blaze. By the time Mr. Cramer (Continued On Page Ten) Miss Umbrell, Prominent Teacher, Dies Tuesday Miss Mabel A. Umbrell, daughter of the late George V. and Mary Umbrell, died at her homu in Orrstown last Tuesday morning after an attack of pneumonia that was preceded by grippe. Miss Umbrell had been a teacher tor about thirty years, having spent the last fifteen years in the junior high school of East Pittsburgh. She was a native of Path Valley and was a member of the Middle .Spring Presbyterian church. Besides her mother, Mrs. Mary Umbrell, she is survived by the following brothers and sisters; Miles and Dwight Umbrell of Harrisburg and Elmer Umbrell of Orrstown; Misses Nellie Umbrell of Shippensburg and Blanche Umbrell of Fayetteville, also Mrs. Rose Leidig of Lurgan. - Funeral services will be held in the Orrstown Lutheran church Friday morning at 10 o'clock with Rev. T. McK. Polk, pastor of the Middle Spring Presbyterian church officiating, assisted by Rev. W. J. Schultz, pastor of the Orrstown Lutheran church. Interment will be made in the Spring Hill cemetery. spring if sufficient rain or snow doesi not come soOn. The latest reports from this sr?3 are thct. thp wind subsided last Friday and cle&r sky snd t little sunshine was visible through the atmosphere laden with dust. Nothing but rain or snow will cleanse the air of this light silt that resembles vapor in lightness. But to date, the weather has been extremely cold with now and then a return blast of storm to send clouds of dust whirling skyward again. The predominant hope of every western farmer is that a life saving shower will come before it is too late to help the crops that may yet be started. Transportation through the storm area is impossible, but where any traveling can be done, the reports go that a more appalling picture of desolation has never been witnessed in the Midwest. The tops of "barbed wire fence posts, corners of almost buried farm buildings and occasionally the carcass of a smothered cow may be seen on what was once the fertile plains. Kansas farmers viewing their prairies, covered with sand ridges that resemble mysteriously fixed ocean waves, could not begin to estimate the amount of damage done to soil, buildings and livestock.

APPROVE JOB FOR GRADING ATOAKVILLE Work At School Grounds Will Cost $5,600 According To Ralph Mouer To Build New Drive The grading of the Oakville Consolidated School grounds project has been approved and the blue prints submitted. This grading work was started last year as a CWA job, but was not completed. It is planned to begin work again in the near future. According to Ralph Mouer, a member of the Newton township school board, this project calls for the expenditure of $5,600 and would give work to thirty-two men for a period of five to six weeks, depending on the weather and number of men kept on the job continuously. No definite information is available as to the time when work on this project will begin, for the legislation at Harrisburg, relative to the a-mount of relief funds to be appropriated toward such work, is the deciding factor. This grading project calls for the sloping of the grounds away from the building and toward the road in the front. At present a single drive and walk leads up to the building from the road on the Oakville side. It is planned to continue this drive in the shape of a semi-circle, leading back onto the road at the north side of the school ground. It is also planned to construct a concrete pavement along the front side of the building to join the drive. Drainage facilities about the grounds will also be constructed as a part of the project. An additional phase of the work will be starting a sod and some shrubbery on the grounds when the grading is finished. This last item, however, will not be included in the regular LWD contract, but will be effected by the school board. When finished this work will beautify the surroundings of the school to a considerable degree. RULE MAKES REQUEST FOR ! FERAFUNDS Requests $1,167,500 In Works Projects For The Local Teachers College Request Grant S. 0. S. A request for $1,167,500 in public works projects for the Shippensburg State Teachers College has been requested by Dr. James N, Rule, superintendent of public instruction. The request for this amount has been filed with the Federal Public Works administration. Another individual request to the amount of $695,000 in public work projects for the Pennsylvania Soldiers' Orphan School at Scotland has likewise been filed with the FERA. The individual requests for the fourteen state teachers coleges in Pennsylvania total $10,073,614 in public works projects, according to the anouncement made by Dr. Rule. The budget of improvements to be effected by the public works administration, provided the r-quost.s 8re approved, at th three othfr stc t-ownpd school, amounts to JI.145.0ini. This amount will largely be spent ,in new buildings. Also a total of $305,-000 is asked for projects under supervision of the Pennsylvania Historical commission. These requests were submitted to the State Planning board for inclusion in the Chief Executive's $4,800,000,000 public works program. Huntingdon Choir Comes Orange St. U. B.

JACOBY URGES RURAL SCHOOLS CONSOLIDATION Says Directors Should Ask For Works Projects To Rebuild Schools Relieve Local Taxes County Superintendent of Schools Ralph Jacoby in a letter sent to the various school directors of the county urging them to make use of Federal funds for building new school buildings, makes the following statements: "The Government's new works progiam offers the best opportunity in a generation to modernize our schools. "I can think of no more worthy project than the building of public school buildings," the letter stated. "jThese buildings have been paid for by taxes. For this reason, most districts have felt that new buildings could not be afforded. The Federal Works program offers a way out and if accepted will give to our boys and girls in the rural districts i desirable school homes. I suggest that every school board in Cumberland county consider it carefully." The letter made a special appeal to school directors in the rural districts where one-room school houses are being used. Superintendent Jacoby urged the consolidation of the one-room school houses under one roof. "In Cumberland county we have five consolidated school districts," the letter pointed out. "Not one of these districts could be induced to go back to the one-room school plan. These children are housed in modern, well-lighted, heated and ventilated schools, taught by teachers suited to the different grades. "More than this, the children are transported to and ' from school in comfortable buses. Best of all, this is being done at little or no greater cost to the district. This is the modern school plan. Whether we like it or not, sooner or later this plan will be adopted everywhere." STUDENTS AT OAKVILLE GET CAPJIOL TRIP Shake Hand Of Gov. Earle; Tour Telegraph Bldg; See Station WHP Teachers Accompany Thirty-two seventh and eighth grade students of the Oakville Consolidated School visited the Harrisburg State capitol last Friday, April 12, as a final feature of the year's educational activities. After making a tour of the capitol, the children were given the lifelong remembrance of seeing and shaking hands with Governor Earle. This opportunity was granted by special arrangement. After lunch at the Alva restaurant the children made a tour of the Harrisburg Telegraph building. The most interesting phase of this trip was the Associated Press room and the master press in action. The next item on their journey was the broadcasting studios of WHP. In the larger studio of the building th children ssng two songs. However, these sonc-? wre net brobd-'sst. ss the net-work was on tn iir at the time. By this time the students needed some lighter foim of diversion which was provided by a visit to the State theatre where they saw the picture "Roberta". The last item of the tour was a visit to the Education building. To the delight of the children, the floor man turned on the stage and ceil- i ing lights, giving the students : (Continued On I'age ien Vigilant Hose Company Will Holdjair, July The Vigilant Hose company No. 1 is making plans for a large fair to be held for the benefit of the company's funds July 10, 11, 12, 13.

At the time of the Spanish American War he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps for a period of five years between May, 1899, and May 1904. Approximately four years of this five year enlistment were spent in sea service. During this service he partici- : pated in an expedition on the U. S. S.

This is not a "fish" story, but an actual ! fact and to date, this is the lar gest specimen reported caught by local fishermen. Joe, the motorists friend, Chambersburg, is conducting a contest. orTerimr a ten-dollar fish ine nole as a orize to the luckv angler who is able to catch the largest trout. This contest star ted last Monday, the first day of the trout season, and to date, Mr. Archambeau's fish is the largest specimen brought in as au entry in the contest. Local anglers express the opinion that trout fishing is better this year than last, in spite of the cold weather and rain this week that have made conditions rather disagreeable for the angler himself. Apples Apparently Safe, Peaches May Be, Say Orchardists As Cold Wave Passes The general conclusion reached by the local fruit growers of both Cumberland and Franklin counties is that the slight freeze of Monday and Tuesday nights did no sppsit dsmfgo rt the fruit. Th frse'ic oil Monday night followed i-losf. on the heels of lsst weeks rainy weather and caught the apple and peach buds and apricot blossoms at a time when they were full of moisture. Of the orchardists contacted for the purpose of tabulating the various results of the freeze, Dick McDonald of the McDonald fruit orchard gave a rather clear account of the way the cold weather affected the orchards Tuesday and Wednesday. The apricots and what early cherries were in blossom possibly received some permanent damage, he said. The peaches were not far enough on to open and as a result the freezing weather of Monday night placed a thin covering of ice about the buds. The continual storm " prevented any frost and during the day Tuesday, it helped to drive off some of the excess moisture. The thaw on Tuesday was slight, but the weather moderated enough to allow the ice covering to disap? pear and enabled the buds to absorb the outside moisture, slowly. This gradual adjustment seems favorable and as temperatures did not reach any new low SMITH MILK CONTROL MEASURE PASSES HOUSE BY 153-23 VOTE State Grange Identifies Itself With Dealer's Cooperatives In Opposition As Bill Is Sent To Senate; Dealers Want Their Fees Scaled Down Margiotti Makes Statement About Bill Announce Engagement Of Ray Mundorff, Anna Burk Dr. and Mrs. J.

Miss Sleichter and Mr. Ruhl ques tior.ed Miss Shugars which was followed by a summarizing speech by Mr. McCullough. A second summarizing Speech by Mr. Ruhl concluded the evening's argument. Both teams agreed that making arms and munitions and likewise using them were bad. Furthermore, both teams were agreed that international peace was a worthy goal and the desired state of affairs among all nations. (Continued On Page Ten) on Wednesday night, Mr. McDonald believes that no permanent damage was done, at least not to the apples. Francis Derick, North mountain orchardist, stated Wednesday that no damage was detected in his section, although! orchcrdists who have peach trees in low areas ex- j pressed some doubt relative to the safety of the peach crop. With no exception, all the orchardists contacted by a News-Chronicle representative said that the high winds that kept up all through the cold weather was the main source of protection from the freeze. A few farmers have their potatoes planted, but fortunately the potatoes planted were below the freezing line. John Myers, a farmer of the Ridge road neighborhood, has five acres of Irish Cobblers planted and states that no damage was done to this early crop. He added that if the freeze had come about a week later, it might have killed the young sprouts coming through to the surface. Temperatures for Monday and Tuesday night were reported anywhere from 23 to 28 degrees. The old timers sav that the record low temperature for this season is 28 degrees which hasn't been beaten since 1928. The weather this week seems to have this record knocked in the head. The new Milk Control bill, introduced by Representative John A. Smith, Cumberland county, passed the House, Tuesday by a 153 to 23 vote. In spite of the efforts to postpone this bill and have it sent I V"" X","f . .J hearings, the House overrode all opposition by passing the bill on. to the Senate. The spokesman of those objecting to the measure, was Representative Horst of Lebanon. It was Assemblyman Horst who moved that the bill be sent back to committee for further hearings and it was Assemblyman Horst who, in the last issue of a well known farm magazine, scathingly disparaged the bill saying that "plenty of politics will be mixed with it." Grange Opposes Those organizations lobbying against the Smith bill are the Pennsylvania State Grange, Pennsylvania Dairymen's association, the Dairymen's Cooperative Sales association, Inter-State Milk Producers association and the Dairymen's League Cooperative association. Dealers from the eastern part of the State met in Harrisburg Tuesday and adopted a resolution opposing the Smith bill on the grounds that it would increase the dealers' license fees and further asserted that the bill gives the dealer no protection against canned milk and store differentials and provides no penalty for the dairymen who violate the law. Governor Earle has asserted his sanction of this bill which, if it passes the Senate, will be the accomplishment of his campaign 1 . , .... ...... .; ft. , Pleae,1? Put teettl m tne COnirol JBW.

Among the changes to the act carried in the Gelder-Owlett bill are those giving the Governor the right to suspend the operation of the act if the emergency for which milk control was established ends or when New York, New Jersey and Ohio repeal their milk control laws.

Smith, of Cumberland county, introduced two bills in the house last week, the first one is to appropriate $20,000 for the cleaning of Big Spring, near Newville, and the keeping of a fish warden at that place to prevent illegal fishing. A new gasoline tax increaser is the other bill. This proposal provides for a two-cent addition to the present three-cent per gallon tax on gasoline. The proceeds from the tax are for unemployment relief on highways for the first year, and after that for relief in general. Maclay Gibson Chosen County Road Foreman A fonnev assistant highway superintendent of Cumberland State Highways, wss named county road foreman by the Cumberland County Commissioners Saturday at their regular meeting. He is Maclay Gibson, of East Pomfret Street, Carlisle, and he will succeed Harry Wagner, of West Pennsboro Township, who died recently. As county road foreman, he will have charge of maintenance and construction of county owned bridges and highways. The only highways yet dwned by the county are those from Newville to Carlisle, and Boiling Springs to Carlisle, all concrete.
