EXTENSION OF ROTARIANISM IN SNOW HILL Delegation Meets Snow Hill Citizens To Discuss Feasibil ity Of Club In Co. Seat A delegation consisting of 19 mem- j bers of the local Rotary club met 18 of the leading citizens of Snow Hill and community on Friday evening, to discuss the probability of the or ganization of a club in that city. Joseph Merritt, of Dundalk, Gover nor of the 180th District, Rotary In ternational, was present, and in a very forcible and attractive way ex plained just what Rotarianism stands for, and then presented the matter for open expression of opinion. The result of the meeting showed a very fair number of those present were in favor of a club in Snow Hill, and some were not so favorable. There seemed to be a hesitation on the part of some because of the in fluence it might have on the welfare! of. the Civic Club, a very popular or ganization in Snow Hill. Governor Merritt assured them Rotary Clubs are always ready to act in cooperation with other service clubs; and rather than working a gainst the Civic Club, would work with them in any effort to benefit i a community. There was no organization effect- < ed that evening but another meeting i was called for this Friday evening, j in Snow Hill, when something more , definite may be decided upon. The meeting last week was held in; the Bates Memorial Church where aj dinner was served by the ladies. Uncle Sam Needs Scrap Metal MR. AND MRS. BURTON’S DAUGHTER ENGAGED Mr. and Mrs. L. A.

WILL COOPERATE IN FIRE WEEK # - Volunteer Extension Neighbor hood Leaders To Join In County Inspection In a nation-wide effort to prevent farm fires, the President has pro claimed the week of October 4 as Fire Prevention Week. Worcester County will cooperate in that effort, Mr. R. T. Grant, County Agent, an nounced. Volunteer Extension neighborhood leaders will call upon every rural family in the county w T ith a check list of simple ways to prevent fires and simple means of putting out fires if they should start. Rural America is threatened with fire. Even in normal times, every 15 minutes a farm building burns in the United States. Critical material goes up in smoke at every fire. That means loss of buildings, equipment, crops, timber, time and lives, all of which are vitally needed.

And in war time there is the . added hazard of firebugs who want to,. impede the war effort by burning buildings and equipment that can’t be replaced. Every Worcester County fanner can help the war effort by cleaning , up fire hazards around his farm and buildings. Fanners should also be ready to put out fires as soon as they start. When they are contacted with a check list of things they can do to be ready and a list of fire hazards i they can eliminate, county farmers; should give their full cooperation. Mr. Grant urges them to fill out the i check lists carefully and post a copy ‘ j in a conspicuous place as a constant ■ reminder. He also urges all farmers to clean up all fire hazards and to be in readiness to put out fires as soon a sthey start. By doing so, they will save life, save materials and help win the war.

PUBLIC : HEALTH SERVICES FOR JOB WORKERS Health Measures To Keep Job Safe Are Illustrated By Series Of Small Posters Health measures that will help to a man—or a woman, likewise— !on their respective jobs, are graph ically illustrated in a series of small posters received at the State Depart ment of Health from the U. S. Pub lic Health Service, for use in connec tion with the health promotion ser-! vices of the Division of Industrial Health, of the Department. Each of them shows a husky de fense worker following out the “keep-; ing fit” suggestions in the picture. In calling attention to them Dr. R. H. Riley, Director of the Department,! said that except for specific precau tionary advice with regard to meas ures against accidents in industry, the points brought out in the posters are just as applicable to other civil ians as to defense workers, and to women as well as to men, young and old, in all walks of life. Here is the list as summarized and supplemented by Dr. Riley, of the measures that if practiced regularly will help to keep a man—or a wo man; a growing girl, or a growing! boy, in school, or at work—on the job. Clean dry clothes. Healthy skin; personal cleanliness;; a good scrub all over, with plenty of soap and water. Fun and recreation, in “times off.” For defense workers, and workers; in all kinds of industries, habitual use of masks and other protective devices. Safety first precautions, in homes j as well as in industry; prompt use of : “first aid.” “Foods that count”; wholesome, well balanced meals. Plenty of sleep. Regular physical check-ups; medi cal examinations and Dental care. Uncle Sam Needs Scrap Metal Next Week Stress es Fire Prevention (Continued from Page 1) sue.

Tons of junk are pouring in as an answer to the Japanese peril. A nation that boasts it will dic tate peace on the lawn of the White House should be taught, without delay, the emptiness of their rant. But, at the same time, there is no mistaking the strength of Japan, their ambi tion, their infinite trust in their ; final conquest of the world. A long with Germany they believe they are the destined rulers of all nations, a power delegated to : them by an ancestry of royal blood dating back to ante-Chris tum days. With common ideas as to their destiny, it is hard to understand their fighting along side of the war loving descend ants of Charlemagne—the un speakable Iluns. The first page of today’s is sue of the ‘‘Democrat” is large ly devoted to calling attention to the campaign on hand to fur nish iron and steel for guns, bombs, tanks, and ships. We counsel the people to come to a realization as soon as possible, of the dire need of food for the furnaces. There is an absolute peril facing us. Were it other wise, there would be no thought of the destruction of bridges; the tearing down of historic fences; the melting of brazen statues; the leveling of memor ial monuments. We advise a careful noting of the date when collections will be made. Search every nook and crany for what will aid the boys to victory and bring back from Europe an assurance of demo-j cratical safety; and, in addition, a world free for centuries to come from the mad incursions of war-crazed peoples. Unde Sam Needs Scrap Metal has made an exhaustive study of the situation, and, at a fire chiefs’ con ference, held lately, received much valuable information as to how these inspections should be made. It is not expected the public should real ize every hazard that exists, and it is partly for the purpose of educa tion along these lines, the inspections are made. Cooperation is earnestly solicited.

He had to take a back seat until Uncle Sam has settled a few minor matters with some bad boys on the European continent. No jok in’, most anybody would sympathize with the Colonel. Easy money had taken wings and that was the only ‘-go” he could see on the horizon. It’s all right, Mr. Jacobs, if we can win the war as easily as the mauler could have put to sleep Billy, the Conn. I see also by the papers that the “World’s Serious” is to come off all 0. K., very much like some other ser ious things are happening in this old world of ours. Really, the diamond classic must affect some people very much like the squashing of the fistic event jarred Mr. Jacobs. “The bums” had the National Lea gue pennant race all sewed up a few weeks back, but the Cards came a long and ripped the seam from top to bottom, and the Jacobs—Durocher firm are mourning the similar loss of a million-dollar turn-stile proces sion. But the Brooklyn manager may stick out his tongue in a manner. As they and the Cards came thundering down the stretch neck and neck, they saw many a turn in the stile by those who would have stayed home had the two clubs been more widely separat ed.
