Memorial And Honor Service Rev. J. R. Bicking preached Sun day morning from Deut. 32:11, “As an eagle stirreth up her nest, flutter eth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them upon her wings, so the Lord alone did lead him and there was no strange God with him.” At the ev ening service, Rev. Bicking led in a candlelight service in honor of the servicemen of our neighborhood. Chaplains Makin and Boyd assisting; also Donald Johnson and Jake Gra ham. Rev. Bicking gave a short talk, Chaplain Boyd read the Scripture lesson, Chaplain Makin explained the transfer of the returned Navy men to civilian life and the great respon sibility of the Church at this time. Candles were placed on the table in the chancel for those in service. There were seven unlighted candles for the boys from this locality who had made the supreme sacrifice with their lives, and fifty-one lighted candles for those who are still in service. The electric lights were turned out during this quiet, im pressive feature, the only light being the flickering candles that shed a soft glow over the entire auditorium, growing in intensity as members of families came forward, received lighted candles for relatives, and had them placed on the board by the two visiting chaplains. . o On Way Home Claud West, 28, aviation machin ist’s mate, fireman, first class, USNR, Rising Sun, Md., plane captain, is on his way home after a six-month tour of duty with a Navy search plane squadron in the Pacific combat area.

Outdoor Living Going Soft ( Much has been written about the ' advanced types of equipment which will be available to sportsmen after the war—walkie-talkie radio, alr -1 planes and what-not. I can’t under ’ stand why any real sportsman would want to use these things. 1 I have always believed that hunt -1 ing, fishing and camping should be a 1 rugged sort of life, away from all the comforts and luxuries of home. How -1 ever, if all the talked-about equip ment comes into use, life in the open ■ will be something on the order of a Sunday School picnic. The airplane, I am convinced, ■ would mean the extermination of ; large and small game unless its use , 1 is rigidly controlled. With this mode! 1 of travel nearly every place in the; world will be accessible —and big j game hunting will degenerate into! 1 something no better than target) shooting. ! While many people seem to enjoy | 1 the slaughter of animals, I am sure j 1 that all real sportsmen cherish the j 1 outdoors for itself. And these sports-: men will see to it, I hope, that en-. 1 croachments of the modern age will j not destroy the rugged manner of. ' living so many of us love. 1 o ; USE OF SALT ON HAY [ The use of quantities of coarse [ salt, by scattering it on hay as it is i placed in the mow, is said to prevent the hay from heating. There is no record of any barns having burned from spontaneous combustion of hay where salt was used in this manner. In addition, hay is made more likeable for the live ’ stock. : RESOLUTION ADOPTED BY HOSPITAL BOARD At the regular meeting of the t Board of Directors of Union Hospi ! tal, Elkton, on August 15th, the fol , lwoing was passed and the Secretary ’ was requested to furnish a copy to j ihe newspaper.
