Naval Officer Is
At Somerset Airport
While flying his
airplane from Washington, D. C., to
Columbus, O., the Hon. Davis F. In-
galls, Assistant Secretary of the
United States Navy, was forced to
make a landing about noon Sunday
at the Somerset Airport on the Dupp-
stadt farm along the Somerset pike,
about a mile and a half north of town.
Mr. Ingalls, who was piloting his own
plane, was forced down owing to un-
favorable weather conditions.
Harry E. Morrison, Chairman of the
Somerset Chamber of Commerce Air-
port Committee, motored to the avia-
tion field and took Mr. Ingalls to
Somerset, where they had dinner to-
gether at the Ferner Hotel.
With weather conditions more fav-
orable, Assistant Secretary Ingalls
took off in his plane about 2:30
o'clock, headed: for Columbus, where
he made an address Monday evening.
While in Somerset, Mr. Ingalls ex-
pressed himself as highly pleased
with Somerset’s new airport, stating
that the location is one of the best
in Western Pennsylvania.
Later Figures in Accident
David S. Ingalls, Assistant Secre-
tary of the Navy in charge of aero-
nautics at Washington, cracked up in
his plane late Sunday afternoon at
Seaton’s Lake, about 12 miles east of
Uniontown, in the mountains in a
dense fog.
Ingalls was badly shaken up, but
otherwise unhurt.
It was Ingalls’ first mishap since
he assumed his new duties in Wash-
ington. He has made a number of
trips to Cleveland.
At Seaton’s Lake Ingalls ran into a
dense patch of fog and was forced
down. The plang in landing hit a
fence and turned over. The machine
was badly damaged, but Ingalls was
able to crawl out.
The dense fog over the mountains
also was responsible for another
forced landing when Lieutenant Ar-
cher, of Washington was forced down

dale want 100 more girls. Apply at
once to the local manager of opera-
tions, Mr. E. M. Yeagley. A special

At the local shirt factory, the work-

good hours, clean work, good ventila-

men whom they can work under who
take great pains in outlining every
detail of the work and help in every
way possible. .

Are Official Successors
the Grand Army of the Republic, held
at Denver, Colorado, September, 1928,
passed unanimously the following Re-
“Whereas, the Sons of Union Vet-
erans of the Civil War have for many
years endeavored to co-operate with
and assist the Grand Army of the Re-
public in carrying on its work, parti-
cularly in the matter of decorating
the graves of the soldiers of the
Grand Army of the Republic;
Resolved, that in all cities or other
localities where there is a Camp of
the Sons of Union Veterans, it is rs-
commended that the Sons be given
charge of the service.”
Memorial Day is fundamentally a
Civil War day, set apart for the chief
purpose of honoring the memory of
the sainted Union dead. The editor
of a large daily newspaper, in a Me-
morial Day editorial last year, paid a
stirring tribute to the memory of the
boys in blue and declared that Armis-
tice Day is the day of memories fos
those who fell in the World War. In
view of these facts, and in view of the
Resolution of the Grand Army, the
Sons of Union Veterans feel that they
are entitled to make the arrangements
for Memorial Day services.
The Sons of Union Veterans were
organized in 1881 for the purpose of
perpetuating the memory and lofty
ideals of Lincoln and the gallant Un-
ion defenders, and assisting the
Grand Army in its work. This great
patriotic and sétni-military organiza-
tion, which is one of the greatest in
America, is well qualified to carry on
the noble work of Memorial Day. It
has demonstrated its ability through
the many years of its association with
the ‘Grand Army. The uniformed
Sons of Veterans Reserve is the mili-
tar; 9 ] org Li | |
He. or
H. C. McKinley Camp No. 214, of
Meyersdale, is not quite ready to an-
nounce the arrangements for the offi-
cial Memorial Day services to be held
in Meyersdale and vicinity. How-
ever, arrangements will be announced
at an early date. This year the Camp
will decorate, as usual, the graves of
the Union dead in 32 cemeteries, and
will travel more than 400 miles in the
accomplishment of the great work.
Surprise Party is Held

The Berean Class of the Main street

Something you prized most dear?
Have you ever lost in this worldly

To be a good winner requires little
It’s the good enough loser who al-

Who never shirks from the dues he

But comes ever anew to the battle of
Taking his pay in the joy of the strife.

Propogation « of Fish
Semerset and Cambria counties have
co-operated to a greater extent than any
other section in the state in establish-
ing nurseries and rearing ponds for
game fish, it has been revealed by the
bureau of fisheries in Washington, D. C.
During 1928 thousands of fish. were
raised by these hatcheries to sizes above
3 inches prior to their use for stocking
the state’s streams. During the present
year a much larger number of fish will
be developed by these hatcheries.
The government supplied more than
184,000 fish to Somerset and Cambria.

these two counties with 164,000 of these

100,000 brook trout last year. Meyers-
dale and Somerset rank second in the
number of brook trout, hatcheries at
these places being supplied 25,000 fish
each. The Johnstown sportsmen re

Attend Apple Blossom
Festival at Winchester
For a number of years it has been
the custom, in Winchester, Va., to
celebrate apple blossom time by a fes-
tival called Apple Blossom Festival.
This year the festival was celebrated
on Thursday and Friday of last week,
April 18-19.
The principal events of the celebra-
tion consisted of a pageant and a pa-
rade. The pageant called the Apple
Blossom Pageant took place on the
grounds of the Harnon school. The
school and grounds stand as a mon-
ument to the memory of a Mr. Han-
non, who donated the funds to pur-
chase the ground and erect the build-
ings. To those who witnessed the
pageant, it was indeed, a scene long
to be remembered, “a thing of beauty
and a joy for ever.”
The parade! it was wonderful! 3g
bands, 65 floats, automobiles galore,
horse back riders, squads of footmen,
units made up of American Legion or-
ganizations of the surrounding coun-
try and other organizations constitut-
ed its make up. The parade began at
2 o’clock on Friday afternoon and
ended at 4 o’clock. It is estimated
that the celebration was witnessed by
100,000 people.
