June 3—Coal at $76 a ton is to have the price cut in half by native co-operation at the Northernmost hospital in the world, according to announcement made to day by the Presbyterian Board of Home Missions. The Presbyterian Board operates this hospital at Point Barrow, Alas ka, and completed it recently under great difficulties. “The Eskimos, already appreciat ing the worth of the institution, have volunteered by cutting the op eration costs,” the statement said. "The first step will be to mine 200 tons of coal for next winter's use at the hospital, using the native Eskimo labor at the mine set aside for the native at Wainwrlght, 100 miles distant. The natives will free ly transport this coal themselves by dog sledges, and expect to deliver it at $38 a ton less than former sup. plies brought from Seattle. The Presbyterian Board today an nounced a long list of native Es kimo contributions to the hospital The list shows that while the na tives retain their aboriginal names they supplement them with Chris tian names from the United States, the result of missionary association. Some of the contributions are: Kun zuskik, 15 pounds reindeer; Mabel Kerook, 16 pounds reindeer: Ned Uusunginya, 115 reindeer: Amos Ekosek. 4% pounds reindeer: Jim Semigloak, 125 pounds reindeer; Njllie Takatak, 7 pounds reindeer; Philip Paneowo. and son Shirley, 9 pounds reindeer: Paul Kaveoluk. 5 pounds fish; Bruce Nakapigak. 14 pounds fish: Helen Kagoaluk, 1 pair slippers.

June 3—Every major engagement of the American Expeditionary Forces in the world war is represented by forty-six for mer fighters who. disabled and re ceiving government training, are en gaged in reclaiming a tract of 3.500 acres of land near here, title to which has been placed in the veter ans' names. It is the first project of its kind In the states. The tract has been plotted into forty and eighty acre farms. It has been sug gested that the sites be named after some of the important battle scenes of the war such as Chateau Thierry, Belleau Woods. St. Mihiel. The Ar gonne and others. However, some fighters object that their various wounds and ailments are sufficient reminders of their experiences. Life on the tract is similar to army life. There are bunk and chow halls and the squad arrange ment for work. The men settled here late in April, coming from the University of Minnesota agricultural school where they were studying unde/ government supervision. In fact they still are being paid for voca tional training as their courses stip ulate that a certain period be de voted to practical application of their schooling. They are paying for the land in installments from the salary of 3100 a month which each receives. The men. some of whom have families, are being housed in large community buildings until separate l ouses can be built. It is planned to build a school, store and church on the property when the farmers become settled. When the tract had been plotted the veterans were grouped in units to begin clearing land. The units work on each man's farm one week. The tract lying in territory de veloping rapidly as a rich dairying and farming center is chiefly burn ed-over land, unfit for reforestation and, in its present shape, for agri culture. The new farmers present a unique assembly of all nationalities. Some were gaaaed. others shell-shocked, others wounded by bullets. Then there la •‘Frenchy". who had a bty. onet thrust through hts stomach, hut is now clearing land andiook n TEWS OLD _ | Anniversary will be Observed Four Days in Keyport, Com mencing Tomorrow KEYPORT.

A brief history of the church as prepared by the present pastor, Rev. F. T. B. Reynolds, follows: The Reformed church of the bor ough of Keyport was the result of efforts on the part of the Classis of New Brunswick which requested the Rev. A. C. Millspaugh, minister of the Reformed church of Middle town. to conduct a service in the borough each Sunday here. He re sponded to the wish of the Consis tory, and preached in the borough on Sunday afternoons. Nathan F. Chapman, a student from the theo logical seminary at New Brunswick, was then secured and he conducted the work from his ordination in 1847 until 1850. At this time the original mem bers of the church were Daniel Sloan, Jr., Abraham Van Woerts, Mrs. Dorcas Van Woert, Mrs. Maria C. Arrowsraith, Mrs. Mar garet Ackerson, Peter L. Snyder, Mrs. Jane Snyder, Miss Catherine oiijuct, ii um iiic luiuuiccuu formed church; William H. Coulter, Mrs. Sarah Post, from the Bergen Reformed church. Mrs. Mary Lam bard. Mrs. Maria Barnes, from the Port Richmond Reformed church, and Mrs. Sarah Johnson, from the Presbyterian church of Phio. During the next three years the congregation grew rapidly and the church was in charge of the Rev. John Minor and the Rev. Jeremiah Searle. The Rev. Samuel Lockwood was the first minister of this thriv ing church and was installed in 1854. He remained as pastor until 1869 and was succeeded by the Rev. A. A. Zabriskie, whose pastorate in cluded three successful years. In 1873. Rev. Elias Mead began his ministry here and continued as pas tor of the Reformed church for sev enteen years, being followed in 1890 by the Rev. James T. Schock who continued as pastor for seven years, at this time concluding to accept the principalship of the local school. Rev. E. W. Greene came here in 1898 and served until 1900. Dur ing the year following the pulpit was supplied by students from the New Brunswick Seminary after which time the Rev. Floyd Decker was called and accepted the pas torate and served over two years. From 1904 to 1909 the pastor was the Rev. Henry S. Van Woert. now pastor of the Gould Memorial church at Roxbury, N. Y. Rev. William E. Compton, B. D.. suc ceeded the Rev. Mr. Van Woert and served from September, 1910, to May, 1913. In the same year Rev. Frank Ten Broek Reynolds, the present pastor was installed. Mr. Reynolds is the ninth minister and to date has served the church faithfully for the past nine years. Under his pastorate great work has been accomplished, which includes among other notable features, the erection of a handsome new church house which is used for all the so cial events of the church. During the seventy-five years of the church’s organization, it has grown steadily in membership and influence. The pastor and congre gation are seriously considering the rebuilding of the present church edifice and when this is completed the entire church property will be one of the finest in the vicinity. The present consistory of the church includes the following: President. Rev. F. T. B. Rey nolds: elders. George S. Hyer, Ar thur S. Van Buskirk, John C. Os born. Henry E. Ackerson, Jr., Harry Crawford: deacons John T. Ackerson. Charles J. Smith. J. Arch. Mac Ewan, George M. Mason. Cecil S. Ackerson: clerk. George S. Hyer: financial secretary. Mrs. A.

Much interest has been displayed by all the fire companies through out the city, in the contest, and the * followers of the particular laddies, g in different sections of the city, were on hand to spur the boys to action. The contest was based on the per centage of members from each de partment present on the Monday night of the Jubilee.
