The contest will be brought to a close at 6 o'clock Tuesday evening, making the six full days, as the cam paign did not get under way until Wednesday morning. It is believed that by that time results will be more satisfactory. The splendid work be ing done by the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts is largely responsible for the interets which has been aroused, and has resulted in thousands of cards being sent that never would have been sent otherwise. , Up to 10 o'flock this morning, when the last computations were made, a total of 18,683 cards had been requisitioned from the cham ber of commerce, but of this number only 8,441 had been actually mailed, indicating that there will be a grand rush on the last day of the campaign.. Of the. numbsr-ef -esrds turned -in for mailing Rotarians had address ed 2,951, the Kiwanians 2,887, the schools 1,531, the Woman's club 1,- 008 and the American Legion 64. The most notable gain was that of the schools and today pupils are out working for their cause. Addresses on these cards indicate that they are being sent all over the eoutnry, many notables being among the addressees. Former President Woodrow Wilson will get several cards telling him of the advantages and beauties of Palatka, so will President Harding, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, John: D. Rockefeller, United States senators and repre sentatives and mayors, sheriffs, county and city clerks and other of ficials in every 'state in the union.

SAYS ROAD IS IN A D Christensen Hopes For Aid in Keeping It Going IS UP TOJTWO CITIES Palatka and Ocala Can Prevent Its Being Abandoned NOTED COMPOSER DEAD. ir AssnelsteJ Press) Paris, Dec. 17. Music-lovers to day mourned the death in Algiers yesterday of Charles Camille Saint Saens, the noted French musician and composer. He was 86 years old. Cold Wave Is -Due to Arrive During Week '(By Associated Press) ' Washington, Dc. 17. Gener ally fair weather, but much cold er, with frost probably severe, in northern part of state, is the forecast for Florida during the week beginning Sunday, by the weather bureau. Receiver A. Christensen, of The Ocklawaha Valley road, has given out a statement relative to the con ditions at be finds them on the, road, and expresses the hope that Palatka and Ocala business men throw much business ia the way of the line as possible that it may pay its taxes, upkeep and operating expenses. The statement was made to The Ocala Star, and follows: "The Star the other dya had an in terview with Mr. A. Christensen, re ceiver of the Oklawaha Valley rail road, and received from him some in formation that may dispel a lot of er rors in the public mind about the road. "Mr. Christensen is not mixed up in any of the complications that re sulted in the road going into tthe hands of a receiver and its subse quent troubles. He is a practical railroad man, has been employed on the government road in Alaska and several lines out west, and every thing he has to do here is to try and straighten out the O. V. and put it in a condition to enable it to live. Me. Xhrisensen says he finds 'the road about to fall to pieces and load ed down with debt. In addition to the $19,000 in receiver's certificates; there are this year's taxes, nearly $7,000, due; the road owes thsvSea board and the Coast Line for termi nal facilities and a considerable num ber of people along the line for wood and other supplies. He has had to put his section men to work cutting wood because the road already owed so much for fuel that the people are reluctant to furnish any more until back debts are paid up. "The people have been handed a lot of bunk about new material and improvements in the last year or two, but Mr. Christensen finds that the rolling stock is almost down to the vanishing point. Two of the en gines are no better than scrap iron; and the third had to go into the shop this week because the boiler tubes are in such condition that it is danr gerous to the engineer and fireman to try to .r-.'i'ke steam. The road has been Divine the Rodman Lumber company $20 a day for the use of an engine. The track is in bad condi tion. Unless thousands of dollars' worth of new crossties are soon pro cured and put in place, these now in use will fall loose from the rails. Even the typewriter and adding ma chine in the railroad office at Rod man are in such bad order that it is almost impossible to operate them. "The impression prevails that Mr. Cummincs will have to repay the money obtained to pay taxes by the issuance of receiver's certificates. Mr. Christensen says the road will have to pay back the money if it can. Strange to say, the money paid for the certificates did not come from Palatka, though that town wept to high heaven about the injustice of shutting down the road. The Rod man Lumber company paid some of i it and the remainder was raised in Savannah. "Mr. Christensen is making a brave struggle to tput the road on its feet, or rather on its wheels. He works night and day, and goes back and forth along the road constantly. He has obtained the assistance of that veteran freight agent, John Do zier, to help him try to straighten matters out. He says that if the people will give the road the busi ness that the road will rive. If they don't it wilt.have to quit. ' "It is obvious that the business will have to come from Ocala and Palatka and points beyond. There are not a thousand people living along the line of the road between the two towns, and it is not necessary to ar gue that so few people can't possibly supply the traffic to keep the road Watson's Gallows a Hoisting Crane to Unload Gasoline (By Associated Press) Minneapolis, Minn..

OLDER EASTLAKE CHILD MAY TAKE STAND STATE DECIDES JUAST HOUR (By Associated Press.) Montrossi Va., Dec. 17. A num ber of witnesses remained to be call ed today by the defense in the trial of Roger D. Eastlake,' naval petty officer, for the murder of his wife at ttheir Colonial Beach home on Spetember 30. with which he is charged jointly with Miss Sarah Knox, Baltimore nurse. It appeared unlikely that the Case would go to the jury before Tuesday with the question undecided as to whether the court would call to the stand Eastlake's 9-year-old son Rog er. Judge Chinn adjourned court for an hour yesterday and went to a ho tel where the two Eastlake children are staying here to interview them and satisfy himself as to their com petency to testify. He decided that the 5-year-old daughter was not com petent, but stated he. believed ..the boy was, and said the court might itself call him to the stand before the case was closed. The children gave important testimony before the coroner's jury. Franklin Carruthers, a neighbor of the Eastlake family, testified that he had heard a child scream and the sound of a commotion in the East lake house as he passed on his way to wpkr the .morning of the killing and on boarding the boat about eight minutes later found Eastlake there ahead of him.

Plots and . counter plots, reading like a chapter : from fiction, were involved in the search for clues in many parts of Europe by American secret service' ) agents which resulted in the arrest here yesterday of Wolfe Lindenfeld, alias William Linde( in connection with the Wall street bomb explosion in New York in September, 1920. Lindenfeld has fully confessed, the authorities say, naming the ring; leaders in the plot, which he declar ed was aimed at J, P. Morgan, the infernal machine exploding prema turely. According to Silvester Cosgrove and Paul Altendorf, who trailed Lin denfeld, the suspect has named five principals in the plot, now in Europe, who received $30,000 from the Mos cow Third Internationale through New York communists. Lindenfeld has declared his willingness "to re turn to New York as soon as possible , and turn state's evidence.

Altendorf came to Europe in Feb ruary, last, while Lindenfeld came over in March. During the summer, Altendorf, living in various com which led him to seek Lindenfeld's acquaintance. As a result Cosgrove arrived in Warsaw two months ago, posing as having connections with communist groups t in America, and was introduced to Lindenfeld by Al tendorf. After establishing his av quaintance, Cosgrove suggested to Lindenfeld a scheme whereby, by giving information in regard to the Wall street explosion, he could re ceive a large share of the rewards offered for the arrest of the plotters, without risk to himself. Throughout these operations by the American secret service man, Polish operatives shadowed Linden feld, and the Poles claim that, while Lindenfeld was pretending to play into Cosgrove's hands, he was at the same time "double-crossing .the Americans. Clues developed while trailing Lin denfeld led the Polish agents to ar rest a number of communists who are alleged to be spies working against the interests of Poland.
