zens’ Association last night heard
. J, Louis Oelbman, president, assail
the practice of a policeman at No

<6 inches from the curbing, while
allowing Capital Transit Co. buses

feet from the curb.
“We want no petty spites on the
police force In tAls neighborhood,
Mr. Gelbman said.
The association supported a mo
tion by Valentine Waller to request
the National Capitol Parks and
Planning Commission to lay out
baseball diamond on the Oxon Run
parkway playground for boys In the1
neighborhood.
Progress on the construction of
sewers in the area was reported by
Smart 3. Read, who declared that
work was coming along rapidly in
the Horner subdivision and that
the Oxon Run Interceptor for Con
gress Heights was almost completed.
Mr. Waller requested that a letter
be sent to the proper authorities
calling for completion of the work
in the Waller subdivision, which
includes Wheeler road, Congress
street, Nfilth street and Tenth street
SJ5. It was pointed out that the
sewer was badly needed for drain
age in this area.
$17,000.for Finnish Aid
Collected at Legation
Minister Hjalmar Procope of Fin
land has sent a check for $17,000
to the Finnish relief fund, repre
senting contributions received at
the legation since March 1.
In announcing receipt of the
check, the Rev. Dr. Edmund A.
Walsh of Georgetown University,
chairman of the Washington unit
of the. relief fund, declared:
"It is indeed a source of satlsfac
tlon to those of us working on the
raising of funds for the rebuilding
and rehabilitating of war-tom Fin
land tfi realise that American friends
of Finland are continuing to con
tribute to that reconstruction and
rehabilitation. We are-gratified to
learn that practically all of this
amount represents contributions
since the signing of the peace treaty
between Finland and Rusgla. It
affords substantial evidence that
Americans realize that tt^e need of
Finland did not stop with the sign
ing of the treaty.”
