How the Community Chest tendered ] service during the past year to more than 130,000 individual Washing tonians, or more than 25 per cent of the whole city population, was dis closed yesterday in a report to Director Herbert L. Willett, jr. Data assembled by Miss Agnes Leisy, head of the statistical depart ment of the Council of Social Agen cies, indicates how dependent a large proportion of Washingtonians have become upon the health, relief and character building agencies affiliated with the Community Chest. These numerous services, while greatly in creased over those of previous years, are not new by any means. Miss Leisy's report says. Most were carried on for years before there was any thought of a Community Chest, some of them for more than half a cen tury. With unemployment still a major problem, every indication points to a still larger demand for service this year. As a result, the report outlines briefly the services rendered by vari ous types of agencies supported through the Chest. Among these items are: Family welfare agencies gave assist ance to 2,702 families, or about 10,000 individuals. Eight hundred and eighty one of these families asked help for the first time. Chest homes for the aged took care of 162 once-self-supporting individuals who found themselves without support for their few remaining year.». Helps Orphans. Chest institutions housed and edu cated 755 helpless orphans and de serted children. Another 1,386 de pendent and neglected children re ceived care in boarding homes under the supervision of Chest agencies. The Bureau of Rehabilitation super vised 221 "first offense" men and women under parole and rendered service to 2,098 discharged prisoners and others falling foul of the law. The Instructive Visiting Nurse So ciety cared for 28,257 sick and crippled people in their own homes, making 178,102 visits during the year. The Leçal Aid Bureau gave free legal advice to 832 persons who badly needed such assistance. The Travelers' Aid Society rendered some form of friendly assistance to 27,028 runaway boys and girls, young people arriving in the city, unmarried mothers and other bewildered travel ers who had lost money or tickets or who needed a helping hand.

By the Associated Press. MOODUS, Conn., October 27.— The famous "Moodus noises," silent for two decades, have returned to heunt a new generation. Two shocks were heard last night, taking the townsfolk by surprise, and it was some time before the elder residents recalled the "Mcadus noises" antf that the village originally was Machonoodus, the Indian's word for "placer of noises.'' The sounds take the form of an earth tremor similar to an earth quake. Prof. Wilbur G. Poye, head of the geology department at Wesleyan Uni versity, attributed the "Moodus noises" to slips along a fault. The sliding of the rock, said Prof. Poye, causes a vibration. Usually, the professor asserted, the noises are set off by earthquakes somewhere. When the first shock came last night, residents" thought it was an explosion in their own homes. There was no damage. Previous shocks have been reported to have been severe enough to knock down chimneys and stone walla. took care of 101 children per month, giving 22,626 days' care, so that the parents could hold their jobs. Maternity homes took care of 210 unmarried mothers and 136 babies. One-fifth of the total patients at the nine Chest hospitals received free care, about 10.000 persons in all. In addition to these, the hospitals cared for a number of part-pay patients. Clinics and dispensaries of the nine Chest hospitals took care of about 25, 000 more persons for a total of 259, 845 total visits. Doctors gave their services free. The Chest funds pro vided facilities for that great volume of skilled aid. Social service departments of these hospitals gave intensive aid to 2.325 sick and crippled men, women and children, who needed further service in their own homes. The departments also gave slighter service at the hos pitals to 7,173 additional people. Men and women torn by internal strife or discouraged from various causes and children with behavior problems to a total of 1,448 individ uals were served by the mental hy giene clinics. The Child Welfare Society visited 5.031 children in the interest of "keeping the well child well." Leisure Activities. Organized clubs and classes of the six settlement houses provided leisure time activities, education and home advice for 2.536 individuals who had no other way to share in normal hu man contacts. The four boys' clubs in the Chest kept 2,350 boys out of street-corner gangs and aided them on the road to good citizenship. About 2,000 tired mothers and chil dren received free outings at camps conducted by Community Chest agencies and another 2,000 enjoyed camp life at a minimum coet because of Chest organizations.

Loseg "Token The West Indian "curse" put upon 3apt. John H. Craige, United States Marine Corps, by an old Haitian woman a few years back, may turn out to be a blessing in disguise, for this :olorful figure is to be retired for physical disability, but this will give tilm the chance to do what most dé lires—to write. Capt. Craige, author of "Black Bag lad," has been a patient at the Naval Hospital here for several months, as » result of a cracked spine, received when his automobile left the road near the Army, Navy and Marine Corps Country Club in nearby Virginia a year ago in August. He has just been before a Retirement Board, which rec ommended that he be released from the service, due to physical incapacity. The captain can walk with the aid of a stick, but he is not serviceable for field duty, the doctors say. President Roosevelt is expected to approve of his retirement without de lay. The Marine Corps officer will get his accrued leave and then be placed on the retired list. Already, he said yesterday, he has had offers to go to Moscow as newspaper correspondent, and to write &·> a military expert. Capt. Craige has another book coining from the presses shortly, entitled "Canni bal Cousins," like "Black Bagdad," dealing with Haiti. A former newspaper man. Univer sity of Pennsylvania foot ball player, boxer and wrestler, Capt. Craige has been in the Marine Corps since July, 1917, when he became a second lieu tenant. He was born in Philadelphia.

He returned to Marine Corps Head quarters for duty, serving In a pub licity assignment. Lately he has been In the Pay Department, and was slated for duty in China. It was while he was at Port Au Prince, the captain relates, that an old Haitian woman put a "curse" on him. To make matters worse, a "wanga"—or Haitian charm—that was given him was stolen, while he lived in Philadelphia, and this be tokened misfortune, and sure enough, shortly thereafter he was injured, he asserts.

Υ· 8 Leadership Is Based on Engine Faets and Records SOME things about an automobile are more or less a matter of opinion. But when it comes to the engine, you are dealing with the hard facts of power and its application. Either you have V-8 power or you don't have it. You should know that experience and the records of performance are definitely in favor of the V-8 type engine. You need not depend on words—the record speaks for itself. It is something you can see as you "Watch The Fords Go By." Something you will realize even more fully when you drive the Ford V-8 yourself. It isn't the difference between green or black or between velour and broadcloth upholstery, but a far-reaching difference in basic engine de sign. Only the V- 8 can give you V- 8 speed, power and performance. It costs more to produce, but Ford has made it possible to use this engine in a low-price car. Only the Ford gives you a V-8 engine unless you pay $2500 or morel TITYl? T\ Ford Radio Programs. Ford Sunday Evening Hour. Symphony Orchestra ; celebrated toloitti.
