EASTERN SHORE MAN BECOMES
HEAD OF STATE FARM
H. H. Nuttle, of Denton, Md., and
vice president of the Maryland Farn:
' Bureau Federation, was elevated to
the federation’s presidency by the
board of directors at their regular
meeting in Baltimore on April 26th.
Mr. Nuttle succeeds to the post lef•
vacant by the resignation of Chas.
T. Cockey, Jr., who has been presi
dent of the State Farm Bureau since
January 1933. t
Mr. Nuttle is one of the Eastern
Shore’s outstanding farmers, and an
active supporter of the farm organi
zation movement. He has cham
pioned the cause of farm organiza
tion for many years in his own coun
ty “on the firm conviction,” he says,
“that in no other way can the pro
ducer’s control over prices and mar
kets be effectively extended.” Mr.
Nuttle believes that the benefits to
agriculture from the “long struggle
by farm organization leaders in its
behalf are at last becoming generally
apparent both in Maryland and the
country as a whole,” and looks for
ward with assurance to continued im
provement of farm life under closer
Mr. Nuttle has been head of the
Caroline County Farm Bureau since
1930, and is a former president of
the Denton Rotary Club. At the age
of 28 he was elected to the Maryland
House of Delegates, and was State
senator during the post-war term
1918-’2l. He is a graduate of Dick
inson College (class of 1906) and re
ceived Phi Betta Kappa honors as
second highest of his class.
TELEPHONE DIRECTORIES DIS
More than 2,400 copies of the new
Cecil County telephone directory
have just been distributed to the
users of the telephones serving this
area, according to an announcement
made by J. N. Allender, manager of
the Chesabeake and Potomac Tele
phone Company of Baltimore City.
This directory contains the listings
of telephone subscribers at Cecilton
served by 114 telephones, Chesa
peake City served by 116 telephones,
Elkton, 790 telephones, Havre de
Grace, 670 telephones. North East,
257, Perryville, 243 and Port De
posit, 219 telephones.
The Cecil County telephone direc
tory also contains the listings of
telephone subscribers at Warwick,
Md., and Middletown, Del., served by
the Diamond State Telephone Com
pany, and at Rising Sun, Md., served
by the Cecil Farmers’ Telephone
The front pages of the directory
are devoted to general information
on how to use the telephone and
directory, explanations of various
types of calls, and rates from this
area to various out-of-town points.
Officials of the company suggest
that subscribers look carefully
through their old directories before
discarding them. Many persons put
bank books, leases, insurance poli
cies, letters, birth certificates and
even money in the directories and
then forget them, it is said. Because
of the many changes in directory list
ings, it is urged that all old direc
tories should either be turned in oj
destroyed, when a new directory is

Cherry trees are all blooming on
the 28th April, and there are a few j
strawberry blossoms. Stayman ap- j
pies are showing the pink. A few
blossoms' are on Fox seedling peach
trees, and the tops of Belle of
Georgie make a better showing; no
bloom on Elberta trees.
Every grower of strawberries
realizes that first quality berries can
not be obtained from second year
beds. Last spring I set some Fair
fax plants. When the runners ap
peared I cut and set a row from
which I expect to get fine .berries
this season and that row will also
furnish me next berries.
In 1934 we cut first asparagus
April 7th. This year our first cut-1
ting was 27th from which it would
seem the season of ’35 is three weeks
later than ’34.

THE MIDLAND JOURNAL, FRIDAY, MAY 8, IMS
WEST NOTTINGHAM ACADEMY
The West Nottingham Junior
Varsity Baseball Team won their
first game of the season last Satur
day by defeating a team from Rising
] Sun 7-4.
This five inning contest was
featured by the pitching of McVey
for the Maroon youngsters—the
capable moundman in addition to re-
I tiring five opponents at the plate,
! was responsible personally for 3 of
I his team’s 7 runs.
! The West Nottingham Mile Relay
team gained a fifth position last Sat
urday at the Penn Relays at Frank- 1
lin Field, when it outran such
schools as Newman, N. Y. School for
: the Deaf, St. Joseph School for the
Deaf, Brown Prep, and Allentown. |
The event was won by the Perkiomen
School in 3 minutes and 34 seconds.
The team was comprised of Keen
ey (1), Balderston (2), McCauley
, (3), and Carroll (4).
West Nottingham Academy drop
ped their initial baseball game 8-6
’to a fast and hard hitting club,
! Franklin and Marshall Prep, up at
| Lancaster last Saturday.
The affair proved rather unevent
ful up to the first of the fifth inning
—two sparse talleys having been
1 registered in the first and fourth
frames by the F. and M. nine.
W. N. A. opened up a terriffic bar
rage in the fifth frame which seemed
to make a victory certain for the vis
itors. Fehr opened the rally with a
walk; Smith followed with a single
to right field advancing Fehr—both
boys being brought home by a smash
ing three cornered hit off the blud
geon cf Reynolds. Next both Byrd
| and Emery followed with a nice
I brace of singles, when “Smoky’ Bill
Deaver hit into fielder’s choice retir
; ing Byrd. Philips whiffed and Re
spess was hit with a pitched ball —
' Pennington next chipped off a Texas
| Leaguer oyer second base. Fehr on
his second trip to the plate in this
j inning was struck out.
F. and M. now arose <to the occa
sion in the sixth and drove across six
: runs to clinch the victory. This on
| slaught was featured by timely hits
| off the bats of Milich, Mears, Cos
tello, Patterson and Custer.
The Maroon nine worked two more
runs over —but after Deaver was re
lieved by Smith in the sixth the
spark was quenched.
‘Smoky’ Bill was by far the center
of attraction that afternoon when he
retired 14 at the plate in 6 innings
and gave no walks —but his support
was lacking in the field.

KENT COUNTY WINS HEALTH
The "United States Chamber of
Commerce has just released the in-1
formation that Kent county has won
first place in the Eastern Division of
the 1934 Rural Health Conservation
Contest conducted by the American
Public Health Association and the
■ United States Public Health Service.
The contest in which the recent
award is given is county-wide in |
which full time county health units
compete regardless of size. The
country as a whole is divided into
six divisions and Kent County com-1
petes with other heaJth departments
in what is known as the Eastern di
vision including the states of Ken
tucky, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, j
West Virginia, North Carolina, Ten- !
nessde, and the District of Columbia.
Coiinties having full time health
uhits can compte where there is a
Chamber of Commerce affiliated with
the National Chamber of Commerce.
The purpose of this contest is to
stimulate more and continued inter
est in Public Health work, to eliimi
nate premature deaths and the re
, duction of economic losses due to un
necessary illness. It seeks to accom
plish this purpose by enlisting the
active interests of business men in j
Public Health and by encouraging a
more unified and coordinated pro
gram on the part of various groups
and organizations interested or en
gaged in the promotion of the pub- |
lie’s health. Each participating
rural health unit is visited by an ex- j
pert on public health maters who re
views the work carefully.
The award does not necessarily
mean that the county receiving same !
is the healthiest jiounty but does in-
dicate an efficient type of health j
work being carried on in the com- '
The award for the Health Conser
vation Contest was made at the An
nual Meeting of the United States
Chamber of Commerce in Washing
ton, D. C., Monday, April 29th when

ty Chamber of Commerce of whom
