SAINT MARY’S BEACON]
A, P. KINO L. F. ABELL Business Manager PH. _ . - -- ■i 1 r'.Tg'CJ.’-v‘ "*" —— Kntered'at the Leonard town Poetoffice as second class matter under the Act ot May, 188, Leonardtown, Md„ Thursday, February 24, 1921. Encourage These Boys No campaign for public sup port should appeal more to the hearts of Marylanders than that now in progress for the benefit of St. Mary’s Industrial School. The plan is to raise $2,000,000 to replace the institution of educa tion and industrial training that was destroyed by fire and to fur nish a haven for thousands of boys, who, in the next few years will reach that point in life when they are to become useful men and citizens, or a menace to so ciety. Boys are not placed in St. Mary’s Industrial School because they are criminals, but to pre vent such tendencies from becom ing developed. It is not an ex aggeration to say there are in Maryland to-day scores of men prominent in affairs, who receiv ed their elementary training at St. Mary’s Industrial School, of which, had they been deprived, they may have drifted along the wrong path of life that, leads to penal institutions. This thought should be enter tained in every home in the Com monwealth. None is so immune that perverseness may not creep into the lives 5f some of our lov ed ones, and, when such boys may be left friendless, either through death or some other cause, where could they find a better place of protection than St. Mary’s In dustrial School? It is, therefore, philanthropy of the highest type to support such a campaign as is being conducted by St Mary’s Industrial School. The work is non-sectarian; let us all help. George Washington From more than mere habit do the American people pause an nually to observe the day on which, jn 1732, George Washing ton was nom. For it has come to be recognized as a duty of citizenship to pay this tribute year by year tp the man to whom, of all those who helped in the the republic, the United States owes the most in respect and af fection. ' We think chiefly of Washing ton as the soldier and the execu tive. and rarely of him as the creative statesman, the presiding officer of the Constitutional Con vention, which was as important an effort as any of the military victories or the initial construc tive enactments of the reorganiz ed Congress. In that assemblage Washington was a force of the greatest value. His counsel was uniformly sound. That the structure built upon the founda tions then laid should require him as its chief factor was probably not in his intimate calculations as he sat during the anxious weeks of discussion as the chairman of a stoutly contending body of delegates, Personal advantage or renown or reward was nothing to him them. Yet he valued the honor bestowed upon him, valued it the more because it came to him without contest or question. Today, more than 121 years af ter his death, George Washing ton is a living reality to the mil lions who observe his natal day. The government is quite a differ ent sort of organisation from that which he conceived as possible. Wonderful changes have taken place. A mervelous development has come about in the course of these many decades. Yet the figure of Washington remains vividly real and human in the minds of the American people. He is not a mere tradition. His peculiarities of character are in timately known. His words are currently quoted. His personal appearence is familiar. He is, indeed, living “in the hearts of his countrymen.” And that is why on this annual occasion the country pauses to pay him the tribute of gratitude r.nd respect and devotion. —Star. t. • Ji ..

AND IT IS NOT NECESSARY Express Company Starts Campaign of Education Among Big Shippers and Producer*—Trying to Qet Them to Comply With Rules of Packing and Shipping Which Will Avert Unneces sary Losses Both to Themaolvea and to the Express Company. In all big business this Is an era of aavlng. Economy fa the watchword In nil the big corporations—economy In operation, machinery, labor, food and supplies of all kinds, but especially food. Now, take eggs— In the office of H. M. James, super- Intendent of claims for the American Railway Express company In Now ; York, is a portfolio full of most con vincing looking photographs of broken eggs. And there need not be any , smashed eggs, or at any rate not half so many, according to Mr, James. So 1 the express company has started an educational campaign for making egg travel safe. Efforts are being made to reach the big egg shippers In different parts of I the country, bringing home to them , the needless loss In eggs, and trying to get them to comply with rules of ' packing and shipping which will avert ’ unnecessary losses both to themselves . and the express compsny. Another campaign among handlers, Including ! all company employees, Is also under r way. Agricultural colleges and state Institution* are co-operating, Id an ef fort to bring forcibly before the pub lic the fact that there Is a tremendous • and constant loaa In eggs, much of it , needless. Tbs express company la ad ■ vcrtlslng broadcast the fact that It ' will welcome suggestions for the pack ing and shipping of eggs. It wants new Ideas for containers, already pat ented or otherwise, all of which ideas will be sifted and tried oof. Seek Perfect Container. Pending the discovery of the per fect egg container, eggs shipped In the case now In general use. the standard 80-docen affair familiar to I every one, would stand a better chance If shippers would not neglect to In sert the excelslor-fllled pads which I are supposed to be used. These “cush . lons,” ns they are called, theoretically go on the bottom of each egg rase, am) ; on the top. as well sa under the top layer of eggs. . "We don’t get a very large proper lion of shippers to use the three rush tons, however, although the coat would ! be but 6 cent* to the esse.” said Mr I James. "They eland the loaa—and the public paye more for Ite eggs." ' Better than the egg cushions In some respects are the brown card board "honey-comb” fillers, five tier* In each aide of the case, which hold threw doxen eggs each, and the cries j ■ cross sections which leave spaces two > and a quarter Inches high. These . would be almost pe.-fect or at least ' bettor, than anything else, according ' to Mr. James, If ihe faithful ben could t bp induced to lay eggs exactly to mess , are, or If shippers would ship eggs of exactly uniform al*. But cases come ’ through with eggs two and * half - inches In length, or even as long as „ two and seven-eighths. These bigger " eggs are the ones that arrive broken. 5 Then the "honey-comb fillers" are I soon weakened and softened by damp , ness, according to Mr. James. There ' after they bend and the eggs maj ’ move back and forth and strike on the 1 edge of the case or on the dividing r board In the center. Figures for egg break age. according * to claims passing through the office of 5 the American Hallway-Express com f pany, are truly enormous. Tim Produce . News of January IB set the amount at E *IOO.OOO monthly, practically all for i the 14 Eastern states, and mostly on , shipments from the states of Permsyt vanla and New York. Egg* From Afar. * “Eggs are moving freely. Hens heve ) laid well throughout the winter no far on account of the open winter and shipments have been heavy.” said Mr. - James the other day In discussing the . new campaign. “Eggs come here from the South, the Southwest and the Wdst, In addition to the general movo • meat from nearer point*. The propor . tlon of breakage bears no relation to t the distance. Perhaps In a Journey from a point 100 mile* away, the ship • merit is ’handled’ more times than a 1 shipment coming from * distant point. ~ The number of times a caae Is handled J In express service will average higher, * anyway, than In freight service. 8 ’The method now In use, however, „ Is not the proper one,” said Mr. James. There should be an Improved method B of packing. The Josses are tremendous . In this very valuable food product g The best device, In my opinion, among, those already patented and on the * market Is the cup-filler, where the or- B dlnary cardboard flat Is replaced by | one with molded cupllke Indentations. The thick molded pulpbonrd of this • cup-flllcr system affords more protec f tlon to the egg, which Is kept In tin H upright position in Its compartment.” S Kllled'Self When Pinned Under Car. e Pinned under his overturned motor t car, Joseph B.
