VOLUME XI NEWARK POST, NEWARK, DEL, AUGUST 4, 1920 NUMBER 26 local dairymen AGREE TO APPLY FOR TUBERCULIN TESTS STATE BOARD OF HEALTH EXTENDS TIME FOR FILING DINGER to TOWN'S MILK SUPPLY AVERTED WHEN THE SITUATION IS FULLY REALIZED BY FARMERS Îer I policy ones tions lack milk not herds to phia ened and very Through the leniency of. the State Board of Health, Newark saved from a serious situa was tion with regard to the milk sup ply which was in danger of being cut off on August 1. The Board extended for a couple of weeks the time for compliance with the ruling which compels all recent dairymen selling milk for sumption within have their herds tested for tuber con the State to and ed that p^rt tât tion was the the r C to culosis. Early In July the State Board of Health made this ruling and set August 1 as the date for com pliance. or at least for applica tions for such tests to be in the hands of the State Livestock Sanitary Board. Notice of such action was sent to the farmers of the State but those in this vicin ity received theirs only a short time ago and had not made appli cation for these tests when the time limit expired. The local Board of Health realizing the seriousness of the situation did everything possible to convince the dairymen that such applications should be made, explaining to those who thought the measure drastic and who threatened to take their milk J to the creamery for shipment to : Philadelphia, that the test would mean very little immediate loss and a very considerable ultimate gam. * Farmers Compensated for Loss of Infected Cows These tests are made without expense to the dairymen, the cost being borne by the Federal gov ernment and the loss of the re acting cows borne largely ljy the State, which pays approximately 4-5 of the value of the infected animal. As it w'as graphically put by an interested citizen in discu.-sing the situation, a dairy man ha? the opportunity of get ting rid of 5 tubercular cows and getting 4 healthy cows in return. And s:nce it is very well known MANY DELAWAREANS WITNESS PAGEANT Summer School, College and Townsfolk in Spectacular Performance With a keen sense of artistic ef fect and a wealth of imagery, the Summer School students with the aid of the townspeople turned back the hands of time to the dawn of American history and unfolded in brilliant, colorful outline, the de velopment of Freedom.. The en tire conception of this phase of national and local development was worked out under the skill ful direction of Miss Lotta Clark, Director of Community Civics in the Summer School, the students, the children in the Demonstration School and everyone connected with the Summer School lending a hand. The production was a marvelous piece of work to be ac complished in a limited time. More than 250 persons took an active part in the affair and num bers lent aid and support in many ways to Monday night's perform mice.

The plane circled about for some little time in an effort to find a landing place and finally swooped down, into a field on the C. P. Wollaston farm just south of town. People came running from all directions to see the plane at close range and to give assist ance if any/ Should be needed.' Water was secured from the nearby house and the young aviator was ready to proceed. The crwod watched with Interest his efforts to crank the huge "Lizzie" bird, by turning over the propeller, while H. H. Cleaves of Kells, manipulated the levers from the pilot's seat. Even with a crack the-whip effect with Herman Wollaston furnishing a part of the motive power he failed to accomplish this opera tion. He then directed the ef forts of others and Wollaston, Cleaves and Paul Steel finally turned the trick. The big bird of soon rose from the ground and flew eastward for a rew yards when she suddenly turned and in a spirit of mischief dived down vvard toward the spectators who in scurried hither and thither like : the frightened chickens. j Having had a bit of fup, the daring young Southerner 1 who, of was piloting the machine, al-i ready an hour late, flew on toward Washington, a journey which he 4 expected to make In 35 minutes, arriving in plenty -of time for ac- lunch.

According to reports from the camp the Delaware lads excelled not only in the military activities but in the sporting events as well. In the former they were equal in standing to any of the groups from schools of distinctive mili tary type, such as Pennsylvania Military Academy and Virginia Military Academy. A coincidence in this connection was that one of the officers of the company to which the Delaware boys were assigne« was Captain Ralph Dickinson, commandant at Delaware College. Captain Carle ton Coulter, former commandant, was mess officer. Philip Marvel, captain of the college baseball team, was captain of the camp team. The represen tatives of the Blue and Gold scored a greater number of points in the sporting events than any of the colleges represented.

Ideal weather conditions have prevailed, the bulk of the harvest work is out of the way, roads are better than they have been for years, and the farm ers of the State are more and more imbued with the spirit of progress.

A surprisingly large at tendance of Newark folk and those from adjacent communities every night of the affair and the liberal manner in which they sup ported the enterprise is a source of gratification to those who man aged the carnival. CARNIVAL RECEIPTS ARE OVER FOURTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS Chief E. C. Wilson is enthusias tic in his praise of the towns people who backed "the boys" so loyally and gave such splendid support throughout the week. t t „.wi, In spite of the ftton» J^ach practically broke up the carnival on Satur ay even ng, a J crowd was in attendance and . swelled the gross receipts with the surprising amount of $3,232. Many who were on the grounds ■ when the storm broke, took shelter, in the vaudeville tent which. proved an unsafe refuge when the wind threatened to tear it from its moorings. Only the efforts of Chief Wilson and several "strong aides who held the guy ; arm ropes by main fore«, prevented the collapse of the tent—an ex perience which has led Mr. Wil son to make the positive state ment that "never again" will a tent be used on the carnival grounds. Many of the storm- bound (Continued on Page Five.) gents to arrive was assigned a plot of ground 30 by 40 feet and pro vided with a packet of seeds.
