COUNTY FARMERS ADVISED TO CARE FOR MACHINERY National Defense Program Ex pected To Make It Difficult To Obtain New Or Parts Because the national defense pro gram is expected to make it increas ingly difficult to obtain new machin ery and repair parts, R. T. Grant, County Agent, suggests that Worces ter county farmers keep their imple ments in good running condition, store them under cover, and get re pair parts that will be needed next year, as soon as possible. Even small amounts of fertilizer left in compartments of com plant ers, grain drills, or other planting ma chinery, are likely to cause corrosion and harden, clogging the distributing equipment at planting time next spring. He points out that now is a good time to thoroughly clean and wash all fertilizer out of planting equipment, arid then cover the distributing mech anism with plenty of oil so it will be ready for use when rolled out of stor * age in the spring. Any tools, nails, screws or bolts left in seed boxes may be overlooked in the rush of spring planting and damage machinery seriously. In the matter of repairs local farm ers are reminded that all wooden parts of the hay loader, such as rak er bars and conveyor slats, should be checked carefully. Loose ones should be tightened and broken ones re placed. The conveyor ropes or chains also need careful checking to see if they are still 'strong enough to stand up under another season of wear.

RELEASE REPORT OF X-RAYING OF ALL SELECTEES As Of Nov. 1, 1728 Selectees X- Rayed, 23 Of Whom Were Found To Be Tubercular The first report of the x-raying of Selectees as part of their Local Board examination was released to day;* by the Maryland Tuberculosis Association. This x-raying has been done by the Asociation at its head quarters, 900 St. Paul Street, since September 22. As of November 1, 1738 Selectees have been x-rayed, of which 23 were classified as 4F because of tuberculo sis. This shows the rejections to be 1.32% which is comparable.to the na filnal average. The Asociation pointed out that al though 98.6% of the Selectees were classified as 1A only 31% or 539 men had lungs absolutely negative, while 67.6% or 1176 men had had the tu berculosis germ in their lungs at one time during their lives but are per fectly fit for military service and are classified as lA. “As yet, we have not broken down these figures according to race,” said William B. Matthews, Managing Di rector of the Maryland Tuberculosis Association. “When this is done, we will have an interesting sctudy of the incidence of tuberculosis in young men in a large industrial city.” Mr. Matthews further explained that the x-rays are taken and devel oped at the Association’s headquar ters and then forwarded to Doctor Victor F. Cullen, Superintendent of State Sanatoria, for reading, the re port fow which is then sent to the Lo cal Board. It was further pointed out that sim ilar work is being done in the coun ties by the Asociation in cooperation with the State Department of Health. This x-raying of Selectees, as well as all other activities of the Maryland Tuberculosis Asociation, is? financed through the annual sale of Christmas SOCIAL SERVICE COM.

ANNUAL SALE XMAS SEALS ON NOVEMBER 24TH Seals Enable Tuberculosis As sociation To Maintain Con trol Of Disease The Annual Christmas Seal Sale to raise funds to fight tuberculosis in Maryland will open this coming Mon day, November 24th, it was announc ed today by the Maryland Tuberculo sis Association. On that day many thousand homes wil receive the 1941 Christmas Seal, through the kindness of Uncle Sam’s Mailman. This year’s Seal depicts a lighthouse throwing out rays of hope to all. The citizens of Maryland will have an opportunity to aid in the fight against the “White Plague” by using these tokens of good health and happiness. Christmas Seals enable the Mary land Tuberculosis Association to maintain a modem program of tuber culosis control. The program includes clinics, x-rays, tuberculiii testing, the Miracle House, health education, med ical research and Negro program. The Maryland Asociation was founded in 1904 as a direct result of the great Tpberculosis Exhibit held in Baltimore the same year. Since it has been in operation, the death rate from tuberculosis in Maryland has been reduced 80 percent. How ever, it is still above the national av erage. Commenting on the 1941 Christmas Seal Sale William B. Matthews, Man aging Director of the Maryland Tu berculosis Asociation, said, “I first want to thank the various groups that have aided us in the stupendous task of preparing for the Seal Sale and who will carry on throughout the State. Their enthusiasm indicates that Maryland’s anti-tuberculosis pro gram for next year should be insured. “Great gains have been made a gainst our common enemy,” he said, “but we must never relax. Tubercu losis is a killer and a pubilc enemy, Seals which starts this year on No vember 24 and will continue through Christmas. The Importance Of A Fine Portrait Should Not Be Overlooked By Anyone.

HUGHES Yard at 915 Second Street INSPECTION OF RIVER PROJECT ON MONDAY, 17 (Continued from Page 1) during the summer of 1940, in secur ing this information. Clearing operations were begun in November, 1940, having been sus pended during the summer, because of incomplete survey information. In December of the same year, a 1 1-2 yard dragling started excava ting at the lower end of the project. In January, 1941 a second 1 1-2 yard dragline started excavation, each ma chine excavating one-half of the com pleted channel. The cutting of brush, felling and trimming of trees is being done by enrolled labor. Large timber has been encountered, some as big as five feet across the stump. Dynamite work is under the supervision of a certified blaster with enrollee assistants. Trees and stumps are being removed from the site of work by enrollee separated tractors and winches. The draglines are being operated on eight hour shifts and are removing almost a thousand cubic yards per day. To date three and onehalf miles of right-of-way has been cleared over two hundred feet wide and three miles of excavation consisting of ap proximately 290,000 cubic yards. On Monday of this week a survey was made of this project, one featftire of which was a dinner funished by Camp Wicomico at Powellsville. The menu was attractive and well served. At this, Dr. Carpenter, state drainage engineer, outlined the purpose of the work. Among these present were: Dr. Dr. Thomas B. Symons, Dr. Roger B. Corbett, and Dr. Ray W.
