Officials Seek Help
In Renaming Abbot
And Dennison Schools
School officials want suggestions
for new names for the Abbot Vo
cational and Dennison Vocational
Schools, it was announced yester
Deadline for suggestions, to be
telephoned to the two schools, is
Tuesday afternoon. District schools
are named .only for persons dead
more than two years. For the Ab
bot and Dennison Schools, officials
would like suggestions of a well
known man and a well-known
woman, preferably connected in
some way with vocational training
and with the city of Washington.
The Board of Education has de
cided to change the names of the
schools—the Abbot about to be re
placed by a new building and the
Dennison already occupying a new
building—to remove the “stigma”
that used to be attached to them
as correctional schools.
Set up as junior high schools about
15 years ago for students mala
Justed to academic work, these two
and the other three vocational
schools are now' equal to the 11
academic senior high schools and
confer a full high school diploma.
Lawson J. Cantrell, assistant super
intendent of schools in charge of
vocational training, has found, how
ever, that many Washingtonians
still associate the school names with
“punishment” instead of with the
newer purpose of giving thorough
technical training.
Thomas A. Edison and Alexander
Graham Bell have been suggested
already for names of the new Ab
bot. Mr. Cantrell favors the name
Bell, he said, because the inventor
of the telephone lived in Washing
ton for many years. His daughter,
Elsie, is Mrs. Gilbert Grosvenor,
wife of the president of the Na
tional Geographic Society, w’ho lives
at Grosvenor lane, Bethesda, Md.
No woman dead two years who
was associated with Washington,
has yet been suggested. Mrs. Her
bert Hoover and Mrs. Anna Bur
dick, vocational training expert
with the United States Office of
Education for many years, have both
been suggested but died too recently
to qualify under the board's strict
two-year rule. Other women sug
gested have been Mrs. Archibald
Hopkins, associated with the first
Mrs. Woodrow Wilson in working
for removal of District slum areas,
and Florence Nightingale.
Mr. Cantrell on Tuesday after
noon will collect the names sug
gested from the principals of the
schools. Mrs. Mary Resh at Denni
son and William F. Smith at Abbot,
to report to Robert L. Haycock,
superintendent of schools, for board
action May 17.

Methodists Demand
Wartime Prohibition
As Convention Ends
By the Associated Press.
fastest-working general conference
in modern Methodist history swept
through its final business today and
adjourned, finishing in 10 days a
job that normally takes at least 21.
In their closing session, the Meth
odists unanimously demanded war
time prohibition, asked that con
scientious objectors be given work of
"greater social significance," and re
fused to act on a proposal to dis
approve conscription of civilian
The conscription memorial was
turned down after Dr. Louis Wright,
president of Baldwin-Wallace Col
lege, Berea, Ohio, had insisted the
church should let ordinary matters
of the State alone, and then “when
great moral and spiritual matters
I-~r i i i I i 111..mi .. I
come up. let us speak In the name
of God.”
Conscientious objectors (there are
600 Methodists in civilian public
service camps) figured in two me
morials. The conference requested
that they be given more work in
hospitals and social service, and
agreed to allow churches and an
nual conferences to contribute to
objectors’ support. Quakers and
the Church of the Brethren at pres
ent are furnishing money to those
who need financial help.
In a report on church and eco
nomics, Methodists declared today
that “Christians in management
will encourage rather than oppose
responsible labor union leadership.

By pressing metal powders into the desired
shape in one stroke, it hasibeen possible for
Chrysler Corporation to produce many parts
for weapons in but a fraction of the time re
quired to make them by ordinary machine meth
ods. This process also eliminates waste of pre
cious materials and saves countless man-hours.
It all started some years before the war when
Chrysler Corporation’s Amplex Division began
pressing bearings out of powdered metal and
impregnating them with oil which penetrated
the tiny pores of the metal itself. Once installed
in h d-to-reach places in automobiles, vacuum
cleaners, washing machines and other devices,
these "Oilite” bearings provided their own
lubrication without further attention.
Today almost every American-built weapon
is made in larger quantity, at a saving of time
and material, and functions better in action
because it contains from one to scores of pre
cision parts made by Powder Metallurgy. Such
parts range from single pieces weighing 64
pounds down to tiny rivets weighing 10,000
to a pound.
Thus the science of peace has been applied
to conserving the nation’s manpower, materials
and finances while speeding the production of
better weapons.
