OUR
NEIGHBORS
By SALLY MEREDITH
Hello, Greenbelt:
We won’t need fireworks tomor
row to make us realize that inde
pendence is worth fighting- for. If
anything were needed, news re
ports of happenings in those places
no longer independent should con
vince us. As these facts are as
obvious to you as they are to me
or the lecturers on the platforms,
I won’t go into a patriotic ha
rangue. It should be worth-while
to be on hand promptly at 7 p.m.
tomorrow, as that is when the pa
rade starts. The entire band—3o
members, feeder and regular mem
bers—will start playing at that
time and continue through the
parade. These boys and girl?
have been expertly coached by S.
Hartford Downs until they can
hold their own with any band of
its nature in the country.

SIOO Fund Brings 756,000 *
Jap Beedes in First Week
Greenbelt children, neglecting
the playgrounds and swimming
pool, have turned to the more luc
rative past-time of beetle-collect
ing, receiving 25 cents for each
quart turned in to Head Gardener
Angus McGregor.
The successful gatherer of the
necessary quart of beetles hies
himself to Angus MacGregor’s of
fice, and after gaining admittance
holds his bottle under the garden
er’s nose. After the top has been
more tightly screwed on, enclosing
the odor with the beetles, and
after the name and address of
the young huntsman has been se
cured, he is given a slip of paper
to be redeemed by the bearer at
the Administration Office for 25
cents.
“That makes 216 quarts, and
756,000 beetles,” figures Mr. Mac-
Gregor on the scratch pad on his
desk. Incidentally, it’s also SO4
of the SIOO appropriated two
weeks ago by Town Council. No
provision has been made for the
millions of beetles remaining after
rhe SIOO runs out. Hope has been
expressed that the effect will •be
felt so strongly that future appro
priations will be made to eliminate
the pests entirely.

Meyers Heads Gas Unit
In Defense Corps
Max G. Meyers, chief of the
newly organized Greenbelt Gas
Defense Unit, yesterday called the
first meeting of his volunteer
lieutenants, determining methods
of giving complete coverage to
the town, educating each indi
vidual in proper defense in the
event of poison gas attack.
The possibility of such an
attack, said Mr. Meyers, while not
indicated in the near future, is
not remote. Since poison gas can
be fired from machine guns,
cannon, or dropped in bombs from
airplanes, and since the enemy
has been known to use gas in
China, and also since our west
coast was shelled by submarine
recently, the unexpected may be
come the expected.
Present at the organizational
meeting were: Lieutenants Edgar
Swisher, Mrs. Eileen Sheriff. Miss
Mary McArthur, Mrs. E. W. Mere
dith, Mrs. A. H. Cline, and Mrs.
Max Meyer. Each of these was
instructed to recruit volunteers
from his neighborhood, and to
conduct evening classes in gas
protection.
Stressing the fact that so little
protection is available, Mr. Mevers
said that what knowledge there
is must be made known to every-
GREENBELT COOPERATOR
ing for and exterminating beetles.
The beetle problem isn’t com
pletely covered even with these ac
tions. Reading advertising pam
phlets from anti-insect companies,
testing their products, and advis
ing the public of the results, are
part of his regular duties. For
example, last week a spray under
the trade name of “Japellent” was
tested on the bushes at the under
pa; s near Crescent Road and
Garden Way. The beetles touched
by the insecticide turned over ar.d
died; but the following day their
cousins were there by the thou
sands. However, Mr. MacGregor
admits that this was not a fair
test, as the spray had been in
his possession for two years, and
its potency might have been af
fected by evaporation of the active
chemicals. Further tests on new
samples of the product will be
made, he said, and results pub
lished. Sprays yv'nich keep tne
beetles away also harm the foli
age, he added, as well as offering
a certain amount of danger to
humans.
Added to the 756,000 beetles
brought in by the collectors, over
400,000 have been taken from the
traps, bringing the total caught
by Monday, June 29, to well over
1,000,000.
Reps Slap Down FBI, 6-2
Trumbule Allows 4 Hits

earlier defeat at the hands of the

Washington Stadium June 26. The
game was close until the final two
innings when the Reps drew away,

ting were high points of the game.
