LOCAL WOMAN'S SUIT TO COLLECT $40,000JHOST JURY RETURNS VERDICT OF 'NO CAUSE FOR ACTION' NEW BRUNSWICK,—After deliberating for less than half an hour, a jury sitting in Court of Common Pleas, Wednesday morning returned a verdict of no cause for action in the trial of a suit of $40,000 for the death of Joseph Simak, of Raritan Township, following an automobile accident which took place on the super-highway, Raritan Township, January 10, of this year. The suit was instituted by Mary E. Kapolko, of Raritan Township, administratrix of the Simak estate. The plaintiff claimed the Simak, was in severe pain from the time of the accident until his death which occurred on February 23, and asked $25,000 for his death and an additional $15,000 to cover expenses. William A. Mount of Jamesburg and Ray W. D. Dilatush, of DayIon were the defendants. They were represented by George L. Burton of South River. According to the defense, Mourn was driving a car owned by Dilatush, at the time Simak was struck by the machine. The deceased was crossing the super-highway near Middlesex avenue, and the defense stressed the point, that Simak was at fault in his manner of crossing the road and that Mount was not driving his machine, as charged by the plaintiff. The plaintiff's story was, that Si mak had crossed the highway at a time when not a car was in sight, and that Mount driving at an excessive rate of speed, struck the man and severly injured him, which later caused his death.

Should Not Be Forgotten Collection by the state of $15,620,792.45 from the executors of the $115,000,000 estate of the late Dr. John T. Dorrance, president of the Campbell Soup Company, should stand as a warning to future legislators and state officials against proposing compromises in efforts to effect speedy collection of unusually large tax assessments of any kind. It will be recalled that at .numerous times during the five-year-litigation over the Dorrance taxes, in which the courts were called upon to decide whether or not Dr. Dorrance was a legal resident of this state, proposals were made to seek a compromise with the estate's executors in order to obtain the revenue more rapidly. In 1934, the Legislature even went so far as to authorize a compromise of the payment, but fortunately the legislation was later repealed. Now that the full amount of the levy against the Dorrance estate, together with all penalties and interest, have been collected by New Jersey, it is plainly apparent that the state would have made a costly error if a compromise had been effected at an earlier date. Not only would such a compromise have meant the loss of millions of dollars of revenue to the state, but it would have furthered a policy for which there is no sound justification. Had the Dorrance estate been the average size, instead of the huge $115,000,000 amount, it is obvious there would have been no talk of compromise in collection o£ inheritance taxes. Yet, there is certainly no logic or honesty in the contention that a compromise may justly be effected in the collection of a large inheritance tax any more than with a small sum. In matters of this kind there is only one question to be decided and that is Whether or not the state is entitled to the collection of such a tax. If is entitled to the collection of any amount at all, it is most assuredly entitled to the collection in full as prescribed by law and to follow any other course is inequitable, inefficient and dishonest. The history of the Dorrance litigation should not be soon forgotten, but should be kept in mind by legislators and officials in case any similar situation should arise in the future.
DELTSVILLE, Md.—Near this ^ little town, which lies close to the national capital, the United States government operates Beltsville Research Center, a 16,000-acre project, largest experimental (arm in the world. In this great outdoor laboratory, nine Department of Agriculture bureaus at present are conducting experiments. These agencies include the bureaus of animal, plant, and dairy Industry; those of agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, entomology and plant quarantine, chemistry and soils; besides the biological survey and food and drug administration of the Forest Service. Other departments of the gov-, ernment also carry on some activities at the center, and still others are to be moved there soon. The Beltsville acreage was rich tobacco country before the Revolutionary War; later, much of it went back into forest Since the Civil War, it had been practically deserted. The government has been acquiring the land since 1933 for Us program U eliminate "rural slums." • * • ' p H E work ranges from studies •*• in animal husbandry and beef and dual-purpose cattle investigations to demonstrations in wild life conservation and restoration More than 450 men, including some of the best-known scientists in the United States, start the farm's stock buildings and laboratories.

It is all right to work by a schedule if you keep up with the schedule. *
If New Jersey legislators continue to take the view that the emergency relief situation is settled in this state, merely because of numerous reports of reduced case loads and expenditures which have resulted from local administration, the experience of many municipalities, including this Township, before the end of the year may prove most unfortunate to their taxpayers. The fact that case loads and costs have dropped un der the local administration of relief is indeed encouraging and bears out the contention previously held by many legislators and officials that such savings could be effected. It does not, however, by any stretch of the imagination completely solve the relief problem or indicate that local governments are able to continue to carry the entire burden without substantial state assistance. As in the case of Woodbridge Township, many municipalities have already been forced to issue bonds to meet their relief costs, since the state ERA stopped functioning on April 16, The City of Newark alone has already issued $1,000,000 to care for its needy, and is now preparing another $400,000 issue to carry it through the balance of this month. ,At a recent discussion, officials of Paterson, Passaic and Cliftan agreed that those three cities cannot continue to finance relief on their own resources beyoind July 1. Other cities, particularly industrial centeis, are having similar experiences. If the Legislature adjourns this month without providing substantial state aid for relief, as is now being rumored in Trenton as its present plans, the result may well be lasting damage to municipal credit, unreasonable increases in property taxes in many sections, and even actual human suffering. Municipal officials should not relax in their efforts to impress the solons with the fact that the relief problem has by no means been adequately settled yet. ****** You can't please everybody unless you have more money than you think you have. *

To expedite work of the start members, the farm has been divided into a 2000-acre wild life preserve, a 2000-acre forest, and a soil conservation demonstration area. The Soil Conservation Service now is experimenting for the government's s u b s t i t u t e foi AAA. Availability of the Beltsville Center was a big factor in enabling the Department of Agriculture to Launch the program this year, according to department officials. Most of the experimentation on the acreage set aside for the wild life preserve has been done by the Biological Survey. Game management has been the big Interest of this body.
In the United States also have been conducted. One of the most successful of these was with Karakul lambs, the experimental flock having shown remarkable development, both in quality of fur and conformation. The Forest Service is another agency that has been particularly active in experiments at the center. Largest single building on the project is the three-story animal husbandry laboratory. It provides approximately 1,000,000 square feet of floor space, and houses a group of laboratorie.dealing with animal nutrition genetics, meat and wool investigations, and scientific studies in volving many types of animals The majority of the investigations of the dairy experimen1 station are planned to continue for years.

"Over the Edge" By FLOYD GIBBONS Famous Headline Hunter.
EET Joseph F. April, of Stoughton, N. Y., who has come to tell us about his big adventure and lake his place in the Adventurers' club as a distinguished member. Joe had the biggest thrill of his life when he was only a kid of nine, living in North Easlon, and it sort of cured him of ever trying to win the ten bucks I'm shooting along to him, and maybe if he thought he was going to he wouldn't have sent his yam in at all. • Joe has gotten the Idea that It's bad luck to com© out ahead of the rest of the world In any sort of competition. Look what happened to him the last time he won a gamel It happened to Joe one February afternoon In 1927. A bunch of the kitls from North Enstnn had gone down to Picker pond to skate, and Joe was with them. One of the kids started a game, and that was Joe's undoing. He entered Into it—and won It. But victory came BO near to costing him tils life that he hasn't had uny hankering to win anything since.
Playing on Thin Ice Is a Dangerous Game. The game was a pretty dangerous one, right from the start. The pond tliey were playing on wasn't wholly frozen over. There was a channel of water right through the center, and the big Idea was to see how close you could skate to the edge of the ice. The first lad tried It and came pretty close to the edge. A second kid followed him, and a third skated even closer than did the other two. Then enme Joe's turn. Joe didn't have hia skates on that day. He wa» down there with his sled. That didn't stop hfm, though. The sled made th» stunt more dangerous, for It wasn't as easily handled »• a boy could handle himself on skates. And besides that, the weight of the sled, added to Joe's own weight, presented an extra hazard on the thin, brittle ice. But Joe didn't pay any attention to th« dangers. AM he wanted to do was show tho«e other kldo that h« had just as much nerve as they had. Joe pulled his sled bacfc about u hundred feet and yelled to the other^ kids to get out of the way. lie took a good run, flopped on the Bled, and hofinn to const straight for the edge of the Ice.
Joe's Sled Catapults Him Into Icy Water. Nearer and nearer lie came to the channel of black water that ran through the middle of the pond. His scheme was to turn Just before Ue reached that water and coast along the edge of the Ice. He planned on giving the other kids a big scare, and he succeeded far beyond his greatest expectations. For all too suddenly the hungry water lotmed up before him, and when he yanked and twisted at the steering apparatus he realized, too late, that It wouldn't work—that he couldn't turn the corner sharply enough to save himself from going in, "I closed my eyes," says .Toe, "and tried to full off the sled. I heard one of the other kids scream, and then I felt the chilling water close over me. The sled rope tangled about my body, and down I went."
Sled Rope Anchors Joe Down in Water. A fresh note of modernism is injected into this Chinese Chippendale living room through the installation of a concealed lighting unit recessed behind the curtains. The effect produced is that of warm sunlight streaming through the windows. rpHERE seems to be simply no limit •*• to the ingenuity of these lighting people nowadays. A press of a button, and they give you daylight, sunlight, or moonlight at any hour of the day or evening—right in your nun living room. And it's almost laughably simple! Lighting panels built into hidden places produce the effect. They are often used over the latest kitchen sinks, although in such cases, ordinary colorless bulbs are employed. Recently this type of lighting has become quite popular in living rooms, particularly where there is a bay window. Easily Installed The lighting unit itself consists of a metal box, approximately thirty inches long, six inches wide, and seven inches high. It contains three 40- or 60-watt bulbs, depending upon whether you have light or dark shades. The amount and color of light desired also determines the number of bulbs. Flashed opal glass is used at the bottom of the unit to diffuse and soiten the light.

There are two ways of installing such a unit, which is a regulation fixture, obtainable at many electrical stores. When built into a new house, it is recessed into a ceiling, adjacent to the window. In a house that has been already built, two polished metal reflectors containing 60-watt lamps can be mounted between the over-draperies and the glass curtains. These reflectors are also standard equipment, easily installed by your electrical contractor. Choice of Colors Where there is no space between the draperies and curtains, a row of small 10-watt bulbs or several lumiline lamps may be mounted behind the valance or curtain cornice. The wiring can be so arranged that a choice of colored light is simply a matter of which switch is pressed. In these modern times, there's no need to permit the original architectural limitations of a rcom to stand in the way of modernity. And you'll find that the modest investment yielda ample dividends in the added enjoyment you derive from your home. 9 A. M. to provide transportation to the children of the church school.

The channel through the middle of the pond led to a mill race at the far end. The current was swift, and Joe expected to be dragged along with it. But, strangely, he wasn't. lie came up, chilled to the bone, In practically the same spot at which lie had fallen In, It took him a couple of seconds to realize (hat It was the sled, jammed In the Ice somewhere below, and the sled rope tightly wound around his body, that were holding him where he was. hut he had no sooner discovered that than the suction set up by the current began to drag him down again. Says Joe: "I was going down slowly—surely, J believed my end had come, and I shudder to this day at the thought that went through my mind then. Was it all up with me? 1 felt a blinding shock at the top of my head, and then I stopped sinking, but my mouth and nose remained under water. I felt someone grab at my hafr, but whoever it was, lost his grip again.
"The icy coid seemed to be eating riglit Into my bones. I began to struggle, and started to rise—slowly—an Inch at a time. It seemed ages that I drifted gently up through the water—centuries before I hit the air again and was able to get another breath Into my lungs. Two of u>y young friends grabbed my arms, but they couldn't pull me Up onto the let?. My heavy mackiuaw emit wn.s waterlogged and the current pulled iue down almost as hard as they were [Hilling in the other direction.''
Saved! But It Was a Close Shave at That. Then, all of a sudden, Joe felt something brush against his legs. It • was the sled- The current had whirled It around, and now it was standIng up straight, wedged In the ice at the bottom of the pond. Joe found that by putting his feet on the top he could keep himself from sinking. He couldn't get out of the water, though, and that was his big worry Nobody can stay In freezing water long without losing consciousness and falling back to drown. But meanwhile the cries of the other kids had brought help. A man came running out of a house near the pond. He had evidently been shaving, for he was in his shirt sleeves and the lather was still on his face. Joe gets a laugh now out of the way that fellow looked, but then it was a different matter. He pulled Joe out^and the sled along with him, and the other kids rushed him home to get those wet clothes off and put him to bed. Joe got over that one and lived to tell the tale. But what's worrying htm la that next time he might not be so lucky.

RED GHOSTS HAND SOUTH RIVER ITS FIRST SETBACK TOEND 1936 CAMPAIGN BY WINDSOR J. LAKIS
In defeating South River High at the local diamond, Friday afternoon, Nick Prisco's cohorts finally established themselves in their true form, a form that should have been put into use throughout their past baseball campaign. Had the former Central Jersey Champs played during the season as they did against South River and Carteret, last year's championship title would have stay ed right at home. • • • • In my estimation, the high spots of the South River game came when Fitz sent in the great Soroka to relieve Blaska in the box, and that worthy gentlemen, on whose shoulders this yelar's championship depends, was a sick looking individual after the local combine had finished blasting his hooks. •
E&rl Smith has the makings of a top-noicn flinger, but to date, he's only been able to do five or six innings without blowing up. It seemed as if, he and Joe Allgaier were pulling a brother act. "Smitty" pegs them in for five innings, and then Joey finishes off the game. And, regardless of the pitching capabilities of both these lads, I still maintain that "Percy" Wukovets was the greatest twirler the Red and Black has ever had, especially after comparing this season with last. • * • •. Season statistics show that Smith led the high school pitchers with an average of .600, while A1Igaier, Petro, Ellis and Szewczyk followed in the order named. The brunt of the mound work was left to the first three boys with the latter two only working on the mound for a couple of turnings. Joey Barcellona, the little lad who surprised everyone last year by steping into a baseball suit and making the team, was top man in the batting records with a season's average of .348. The other regulars finished in the following onder: Smith, Leahy, Captain Scutti, Simonsen, Mike Karnas, John Karnas, Jeglinski, Pocklembo, Melder, Petro and Allgaier. The team's average batting record stood at .235, which, experts will tell you is nice hitting for a scholastic club. Trough the pne co-operation of Sam Gioe, Bob Humphries, Herb Williams and the remainder of the WPA recreation league staff, the athletic events to be held during the Stadium Shows Week should be an outstanding success. The committee ap preciktes their help.
Sunday, being one of my off days, I took a stroll up to the clay tennis courts on upper Green street and gave them an inspection with a fine tooth comb. My report to you, is that these courts, when completed, will rival the Perth Amboy tennis grounds for both firmness and smoothness. I understand that they will be under supervision of a WPA attend ant at all times, whose job it will be to see that they are kept in perfect condition.
TOPSY NUT CLUB L. COSKY PACES BEATS ROMEOS FORDS ROYALS 9 IN SOUTH AMBOY TO 8 - 2 VICTORY SOUTH AMBOY.—The Romeo All Stars of this place, were given a severe setback here Sunday, at the hands of a superior Topsy Nut Club combine, of Port Reading. The final score showed the Nut Clubbers on top, 6 to 2. F. Kukula, who toed the mound for the winners, pitched a superb brand of ball in allowing his opponents only five hits and by striking out 14 batters. The visitors took an early inning lead and held their advantage throughout the game. Out of the total 17 hits collected by the Nut Club, batting honcrs were divided between. J. Kollar, T. Simeone and A. Simeone, who collected three apiece. Topsy Nut Club (6) ab r h B. Kollar, ss 5 1 1 J. Kollar, 3b 5 1 3 T. Simeone, lb 5 2 3 E. Kollar, c 5 13 A. Simeone, If 4 0 3 F.

CARTERET.—The Fords Royals, with Cosky pitching shut-out ball until the eighth frame, scored a decisive 8 to 2 victory over the Carteret Aces, of this place, here Sunday afternoon. The Fords twirler had an almost perfect game, but three hits and a pair of runs in the final two innings deprived him of that honor. Never once where the Royals threatened and as the game grew older, their scoring ability became stronger. Cekacz, Carteret hurler, was touched for eight hits. Besides doing an excellent job on the mound, Cosky earned a tie in batting honors with J. Whitney, with each collecting a trio of bingles. Cosky had the edge in this case however, by virtue of having his hits count in an equal number of trips to the plate. Fords Royals (8) ab r h F. Whitney, cf 4 1 1 W. Fischer, 3b 5 1 1 L.

Deadwood, S. D. — Realizing that the brakes of his truck, which was loaded with 6,000 dynamite caps, were slipping, Lloyd Trucano leaped from the cab and crouched fearfully. A few minutes later, he looked up and saw the truck standing still beside two broken telephone poles and two trees. Its highly explosive contents were undamaged.

The game was fairly even until the fourth frame, when the Hatters went to town and grabbed five runs, which gave them a decided advantage to work on. The losing combine was superior in the hitting column, having collected 13 safeties from the combined offerings ol Kubiak and Chasan. The Hatters gathered eight bingles off N. Kopperwats and J. Kopperwats. Bandison starred at bat for Heyden, with three clouts out of four trips to the platter, while Barcellona, Schultz and Levinson were best with the willow for the victors, with a pair of hits apiece.

CAPTAIN SCUTTI IS BATTING STAR IN EXCITING 8-7 WIN, BARCELLONA TOPS SEASON'S BATTING RECORDS By Lyman Peck, Jr. WOODBRIDGE.—The Woodbridge High School Red Ghosts unleashed all their power, which had been held in. check most of the season, and scored three impressive victories in the last two weeks, to end the 1936 season in a blaze of glory. They defeated New Brunswick and then showed the fans it wasn't a fluke, by snapping Carteret's twelve-game winning streak. Breaking winning streaks seemed to be their specialty, for they followed through by handing South River its first setback of the season. The locals really showed they had championship stuff in them, when they came from behind to olast South River. They started oil like a meteor, scoring two runs in the first Joining and three in the third. South River started creeping up, by scoring one in the lourtn, one in the tifth and two in ine sixth. In the Maroons half ol the seventh, they took the lead for the first time. Fritz, lef fielder for the Bricktowners, clouted a home run with two men on, to give South River a 7-5 lead. Allgaier was called in to replace Smith and set them down with one hit lor the remainder of the game. Soroka replaced Blaska, lor South River, and the Barrons fell on him with vengeance. Barcellona singled, Scutti followed suit and Smith doubled to score Barcellojia. The throw in was wide ot the third sack, scoring Scutti and Smith took third. John Karnas hit a fly to center field and Smith scored after the catch. Soroka covered the plate on the throw in and was knocked practically out by Smith. Scutti took batting honors with three bingles, while Barcellona and Smith had two each. Fritz and Hrydzusko starred for the Maroons with two hits each.

VALENTINE TEAM TAKES TRIMMING FROM NATIONALS WOODBRIDGE. — Showing a complete reversal of early season form, the Valentine Brick Co., team took its second pasting of the week, when it stacked up against the National Lead combine, Saturday afternoon at the Grove street diamond. The final score showed Bill Applegate's team on the losing end, 12 to 7. All told, the locals sent four pitchers on the mound, to try and curb the heavy hitting barrage of the visitors, who kept clouting the ball until 20 hits had been amassed. Wukovets, J. Sabine, P. Sabine and Pickens all took turns on the hill for the Valentines. Mizerak starred at bat for the home club with four hits out of five tries. Nemeth was best for the Nationals with four clouts in five trips to the rubber. National Lead Co.

Board of Education is con sidering possibilities of erecting a high school of its own. This is a noble step. But, unless the Federal Government dishes out the funds for the local project, the township is in no position to go through with building plans.
An ideal graduation gift from the parents, uncles aunts or oihers closely related—Mary's "One Minute Permanent Wave" — No electricity, self setting, harmless to hair and scalp the longest lasting permanent yet created.
We all agree that it's about time the township had a high school ol its own. This business of sending students to high schools in Metuchen, Woodbridge and other institutions is expensive.
