CHILD HEALTH DAY IS NAMED FOR MAY IST This Day Has Been Set Apart By Proclamation Of Herbert O'Conor, Governor Of Md. ASKS ALL MARYLANDERS TO GIVE COOPERATION Dr. R. H. Riley, Director of the State Health Department, calls at tention to a special proclamation is sued April 10, at Annapolis, by Gov. O’Conor, setting aside the first day of May to be observed throughout Mary land, as Child Health Day, in accord ance with Congressional authorization for the nation-wide celebration of the day and the President’s annual pro- j clamation. The Governor asks all Marylanders to cooperate with par ents, teachers, health authorities, and other duly constituted agencies in fur thering and safeguarding the health of the children of this State, not only in this particular way, but through out the year. The Great Seal of the State affixed to the proclamation dates back more than three hundred years when the charter w 7 as granted to the colony, and links the present with the past. It gives special significance to the Governor’s message which calls atten tion to the urgency of protecting chil dren from preventable illnesses parti cularly in “these trying times,” of physical and mental handicaps, and of otherwise caring for them so that they may be preserved for the re sponsibilities which will rest upon them as citizens of tomorrow. The proclamation follows: WHEREAS, Friday, the first day of May, 1942, has been designated by a joint resolution of Congress, and by proclamation of the President of the United States of America, to be observed throughout the Nation as Child Health Day, and WHEREAS, it is of the utmost im portance that the lives of the chil dren of Maryland be so protected from preventable illnesses, that they may develop to maturity without unnecessary physical or mental handi caps, particularly in these trying times, when the health of the chil dren is so vitally important, to pre serve them for the duties which will fall upon them as the citizens of to morrow, and WHEREAS, the promotion of Child Health requires the active cooperation of all of our citizens, and is assured only when every mother and child in the State are given the care that medical science advises. NOW, THEREFORE, I, HERBERT R. O’CONOR, Governor of the State of Maryland, do designate Friday, May Ist, as Child Health Day, and urge that in every community public sentiment support the efforts of par ents, teachers, health officers, physi cians, nurses and all other agencies which promote the health and well being of children not only on Child Health Day, but througout the year. REFERENDUM ON MAY STH, 1942 9A.M.JOSP.M Polling Station To Be In The County Agents Office, Snow Hill. Ballots Mailed Whether the advantages which come from a soil conservation district will be made available to farmers of Worcester County will be deter mined according to County Agent R. T. Grant in an official referendum to be held on Tuesday, May sth, 1942. There will be a polling station in the office of the County Agent in Snow Hill from 9 A. M. to 5 P. M. Any owner or operator of farm land in the proposed conservation dis trict is eligible to vote whether or not he is in favor of the creation of this district. The boundaries of the district will be the same as the boun daries for Worcester County. Mr. Grant further states that mail ballots have been mailed to all farm ers in the county for their conven ience to vote in the referendum by mail instead of coming to the polling station. He explains that only bal lots postmarked on or before May st’n will be counted. If this district is formed Mr. Grant points out it will not materially affect work now being done in drainage by the CCC Camp in Powellsville. The formation of a district will also be a definite step toward maintaining drainage ditches that have already been dug by the Powellsville Camp. The program will be coordinated through a five-man board of super visors, three of whom will be elected V/haf Should You Pledge To Help? WASHINGTON, D. C.—The following table issued by the Treasury Department is intended as a savings yardstick for the average income earner. It suggests how everyone of the 48,000,006 employed persons in the United States may partici pate in the war effort through the systematic purchase of Defense Savings Bonds. “The job ahead of us is far bigger than most of us realize,” Secretary Morgenthau declared in making the table public. “I know that the American people IgM are ready to do their part to win the war. One of the ways we can do much more is by intensifying our UMH. effort in the purchase of Defense Bonds.” Wjnr While persons without dependents may be able to set aside more than the suggested figures, persons I sM with several dependents, or with other heavy family obligations, may be unable to save at the suggested rate, the Treasury Department pointed out.

The nation-wide observance of “Be Kind To Animals Week” had its be ginning 27 years ago in Massachu setts and since then the movement has gained momentum with the years and children, particularly, are being made to realize that every creature which can feel is akin to them and that to cause needless suffering is wicked. Worcester County maintains a “Shelter” on the Berlin-Ocean City Boulevard. This is now under new management with facilities for board, ing pets and also giving instruction upon the care of animals during pos sible air raids.

There was a very 7 creditable attendance, and, as usual, the Cris field boys put on a very attractive program. The guest speaker of the evening i was Paul W. Haviland, Esq., of Ore gon, who is an FBI man. He gave : a very interesting talk bearing on the history of such organizations in this and other countries. While it could be seen that Mr. j Haviland was very careful as to what sort of information he gave out, he very clearly showed just what the FBI had to deal with along the line of sabotage, espionage, kidnapings, bank robberies, rumors and other fea tures of national disorder. He show ed himself as particularly well in formed, and very satisfactorily ans wered all questions put to him after his one-hour talk. Dr. Llewelyn Is Com missioned In M.

The towers, of course, are built in the daytime but the actual surveying is done at night. The surveyors us ually leave camp about three o’clock in the afternoon and drive to the station or tower they are to occupy. Observations are then taken before dark on prominent landmarks; such as, water tanks, lookout towers, stacks, church steeples, etc., to locate their positions. After dark the sur veying is done on the main stations, which are called triangular stations. To measure the angles electric lights are used from the tops of the steel towers. The survey is done at night as the atmosphere is much clearer and lights at night can be seen much far ther than targets can be seen in the daytime. The men talk back and forth between stations by flashing the international code with lights. If you see lights flashing at night for the next two weeks it will be the men of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Sur vey engaged on their defense surveys for our armed forces. The Chief of this survey party is Lieutenant George W. Lovesee, of Ft. Collins, Colorado. He has been with the Coast and Geodetic Survey, which is one department of the Department of Commerce, for 15 years. Lieuten ant Herman C. Applequist is the Ex ecutive Officer. He is from Califor nia and has been with the department since 1930. The other surveyors are Civil Service Employees headed by Mr. Lester B. Odgers, from Haddom, Kansas, who is the field foreman. The men are from all over the United States and many of them have been w’ith the department since 1930. There are a number of children in the camp all of whom are too. young to go to' school. The mothers usually have to take the children home when they i reach school age, so many of them are Clayton Edward Hammond, William Bernard Harmon, Lavette Washing ton Johnson, ‘Calvin James Dennis, Jr., Milton Lindwood Epps, Robert Marshall Hunter, Rowland I/eon Al len, Shumway Fassett Brittingham, Mary Magaline Taylor, Miriam Al thea Quinn, Hattie Neomia Gaines,!

Many of the commissioned i personnel have been detailed to sur- j veys with the Army and Navy and, also some of the enlisted and civili service personnel have been transfer- 1 red to duty with the armed forces.
