DRAFT EVADER MAKES ESCAPE DRAFT EVADE RMAKES ESCAPE GROVER CLEVELAND BERGDOL, NOTORIOUS ARMY DESERTER AGAIN IN LIMELIGHT Philadelphia. May 21. —Grover Cleve land Bergdol. a wealthy young Pliila delphan, and a notorous evader of the selective service law, who wa,s re cently convicted by a military court for desertion and sentenced to serv < five years in an army prison near New I York, esceped today by dashing from his mother’s home near here and flee ing in a waiting automobile. Bergdoll had commenced serving his | five year’s sentence, and was brought i here on court order to sign some pa- ] pers. He was in the custody of a se geant and a corporal. Whle within the drawing room he walked slowly to the door, and before his guard realized his intention he had left the house and was speeding away in a high-powered ! automoble which har been held in waiting. The ease with which Bergdoll side 1 stepped military service during the j war, and made his get-away from an ; armed military guard, stamps him as H being an expert in the art of dodging. J Under military laws in force durng te war a prisoner’s guard was made I pesonally responsible for the prisoner. | The same laws are probably in force i now, in which case the corporal and sergeant who had Bergdoll in cuf dw are decidedly “out of luck.’’ NAVAL STATION IS NOW BE'NG WRECKED N The work of wrecking the Bruns wick naval station, the contract for which was awarded to the Bowen Construction company, is now in pro gress, nd the three modern hangars, erelted at a cost of many thousand dol lars, will soon be torn away and the hundreds of tons of steel used in their conduction shipp to Philadelphia, to gether wit hthe remaining equipment, Te staton was built for the purpose of training recruits in the air service of thenavv and during th ewar lnin deds of blue jackets were stationed berf.

'JOINT APPEAL i IS MADE FOR | BOND ISSUE Trustees of Hospital and Direr ; tors of the Board of Trade Issue Statement PRESENT CONDITION OF HOSPITAL IS DEPLORABLE Issuance of Bonds to Reieve S>t uation Will Not Add Any In crease to the Tax Rate, Accord ing to Statement The following joint appeal has | ,J i‘?n mailed to the citizens of Bruos -1 wick, in the cause, of the coming bond issue in the sum of $50,000 for use In betterments to the city hospital. It will be observed! that the letter is signed by members of the trustees of the hospital and the directors of the board of trade. At the instance of the Board of Trustees of the Brunswick Hospital the Mayor and Council have called an election for June Bth, to determne whether the city hall Issue bonds in the sum of Fifth Thousand Dollars, for the enlargement of and better ments to. tWc> hospital. This step was decided upon after a thorough nvestigation of the subject extending over a period of approxi mately two ylejars. The present physical condition of the hospital is most deplorable. It is not only insanitary, but is a menace to the safety of patients, who are at all timlyß exposed: to the danger of having plastering fall upon them. And furthermore the facilities are entirely inadequate to meet tlv present de mands. The''improvement contemplated call for a thorough overhauling of the present building. tHe erecting of an annex containing IS additional rooms and the installation of an electric ele vator, a modern X-Ray ntacine, etc. The city of Brunwick appropriates to tlfo hospital Three Thousand Dol lars annually to care for its charity patients. With additional revenue producing features it is c ontemplated to relieve the city from this appropri ation, either in whole or in part, so that the additional interest account to the city will be insignificant as not to require any increase in the tax rate whatever. The c ty of Brunswick n ow has $480,000.00 bonds outstanding with about $210,000.00 in the h ands of the Sinking Fund Commission, consisting of Messrs. E. H. Mason. C. Downing, N. Emanuel. E. L. Stephens and Geo. ' H. Smith. At the end of the p resent y ear, ■ not less than $ 235.000.00 of bonds i w ill be retired, leaving a bonded in-! debtedness of $245,000.00, which is probably less than any other city of the size of B runswick. We asky our favorable considera tion of this matter. Unless the bond issue is approved by the voter it may become necessary to close the institu tion. We feel that you fully appreci ate what this would mean to our peo ple and will therefore not stress it here, what it would have meant to some of the 2'l surgical patients that were deatcd during the year just pass ed. But for a prompt skillful oper ation some of them would not be liv ing today. We will appreciate your support on behalf of the institution so indispen siblb to the safety and well-being of the whole community.
