In the past What do you Regulations For Burning Brush The regulation established by the Commission ot' State Forests auu Parks which stipulates that in the three spring months of March, April and May, brush and other debris may be burned only between the hours of 4 p. m. and 12 midnight, has brought to District Forester A. it. Bond, at Bel Air, a number of inquiries as to why these particular hours are set. It is tlie result, Mr. Bond declares, o It is thee result, Mr. Bnd declares, of of the Department of State Forests and Parks that show air humidity to be highest and wind velocity lwoest in the late afternoon and l early even ing. This means that burning is saf est at such times, with the least chance that fire will get away. At one weather statione recently the humidity at 4:00 p. m., Mr. Bond says, registerer 100 per cent, while at 11:00 a. m. the next morning it had dropped to 20 per cent. It is com mon knowledge, borne out by wea ther station readings, that winds tend to die down at or near sunset, and seldom rise again until early morning. o Building Boom On The “Boulevard” Evidently the north section of Ox ford is to experience an extensive building boom during the coming summer on the development of A1 F.

Nevertheless, pneu monia is by no means to be taken lightly. It ranks among the leading causes of death and is apt to strike particularly hard during the months of January, February and March. Lobar pneumonia is an infection of the lung usually caused by the in vasion of an organism called pneu mococcus. It results in inflammation of the luing and is accompanied by , nigh fever. There are various types of iobar pneumonia, some more and some less resistant to the sulfa drugs. All types of pneumonia, how ever, are serious and may be follow ed by such complications as pleurisy, lung abscesses or meningitis. The first symptoms of lobar pneu monia are a chill and pain in the side. The disease develops rapidly. Within 48 hours there is a high fever which may go up to 104 degrees or more. The patient has a rasping cough and expectorates blood-tinged sputum. Breathing is heavy and diffl ;ult When sulfa or penicillin is used ,he disease is usually brought under control quickly. The drugs do not seem to he effective, however, with ■some types of pneumonia. Pneumonia often develops if pro per care is not taken after other ill nesses. The patient who becomes ac tive too soon after influenza may break down with pneumonia. Any number of illnesses may be followed ny pneumonia if the body is not per mitted to regain its strength before normal activities are resumed. The best precaution against pneu monia is a strong body. This means getting sufficient rest, eating nour ishing meals, taking care of one’s self after illness, avoid sudden chilling, not going out in cold or wet weather without protective clothing. Some diseases, such as scarlet fev er, set up immuinty against re-infec tion. This is not true of pneumonia. On the contrary, penumonia fre quent recurs. Although pneumonia miay be quick ly brought under control today when sulfa or penicillin can be used, the patient should follow the doctor’s ad vice and allow time for complete con valescence before taking up his usual activities again. Diagnosing TB will be discussed in the next article. This article is presented by the Maryland Tuberculosis Association in the interest of better health. o USED FARM EQUIPMENT Used farm equipment acquired by dealers or any other persons for re sale is under price control, Leo H. McCormick. Maryland OPA State Di rector, said in response to inquiries from several sections of the state. Ceiling prices apply whether or not the equipment is reconditioned and guaranteed. On used equipment sold by farmers and auctioneers, price control is in effect on ten major items, the OPA said. They are; 1, combines; 2-corn binedrs; 3-corn pickers; 4-farm and garden tractors (except track-type and industrial tractors for which maximum prices are established, by MPR 136); 5-hay balers (motor or tractor operated); 6-hay loaders; 7- manure spreaders; 8-side delivery lakes; 9-tractor mounted mowers in- ! eluding semi-mounted (power take off driven) mowers; 10-a combina tion of any of the items just listed with other items of farm equipment specifically designed for mounting thereon, where the combination is sold as a unit. Items not included in the above list are exempt from price control when sold by farmers or auctioneers, the OPA said. For any items of used farm equipment listed, the prices charged shall not exceed 85 per cent of the ‘base price’ if the items are sold within one year after date of sale new, or 70 per cent in any other Auctioneers are required to run MJLD.LAND J.qURN/Ui, FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 1946 £\ LOOKING \ trj AHEAD B y GEORGE S. BENSON Hk PresiieHt—Mariwg College A Sermon America has three big F’s. They stand for farm, factory and finance. They Cover the nation and make it what it is. You may be neither a farmer, a factory worker nor a financier but, if not, you are prob ably so dependent on one of the three groups that you are one with it, in thought and aim. There are exceptions, but the big F’s tie in all of us but a small minority. In the matter of stability, the three F’s are as dependent on each other as the legs of a stool. If one goes down, they all topple. Neither of these big groups of people can enjoy prosperity long unless the oth ers likewise prosper. And here is a wonder of all time: Why are these three classes suspicious of each other? Why do they so con sistently work against each other? Farmers’ Markets When is the agricultural industry prosperous? The answer is plain to any observing farmer: Farmers have a quick market for all they produce, at good prices, only when factory workers are very largely employed at good wages. Labor ers constitute a big class and they work hard. When they have good jobs they eat well, cover their tables with the best of what farmers sell. Here is where the preaching starts: Since farm prosperity de pends on good wages at facto ries, it is in every farmer’s interest to work for the healthy welfare of labor. Why then does the political Farm Bloc concern itself so avidly with class legislation instead of working for the thing that always helps the farmer—namely, labor’s sound advancement? The Workman’s Pay This is definitely a Christian teaching. The illustrious Paul, who wrote most of the New Testament, said, “Do not take account of your own interests, but the interests of others as well.” Moreover the rule is not confined to the farm for its application. It is just as righteous and just as practical for the use of working men who want to im prove their living standards. Thus: When do laborers enjoy steady work at high wages? Every think ing worker knows the answer. La bor prospers when men of wealth put out their money, expanding old businesses and building new ones. Of course it is for their own gain but it pays the workers. Mystery: Why don’t labor’s leaders do their best to make investments attrac tive? Such strategy would pay rich I and direct returns. It is the only j way to higher and higher wages. And Profits Too. Returns to employers respond to the same rule. Factory owners sell 80% of all they make to laborers and farmers. These men wear good clothes, drive good cars and modernize their homes when they can afford it. Any financier, able to see which side of his bread is buttered, knows where profits come from. They come from prosperous, buying farmers and happy, well i paid workers. If the three big F’s would look out for one another; if employers never oppressed labor; if farmers did not envy capitalists; if workers never used intimidation, prosperity I would certainly follow. It would be for us all. The code that Jesus upheld in the Sermon on the Mount 2,000 years ago is still good. Com munism, envy, greed and violence can’t live in the climate with ap plied Christianity. notice of each sale of used farm equipment with the nearest District | Office of Price Administration at ' UMt 6 days before the Mlo. .r__ PUBLICJSALE —OF— Personal Property SATURDAY MARCH 30, 1946 at 1:00 p. in. sharp On road from Rising Sun to Cal vert, 1 mile east of Rising Sun on hard road, Route 1.
