JOURNAL Oddities In The News ANGLER HOOKS PLANE A strong-armed caster fishing from a dock near the Yonkers seaplane base cast his sinker right through one side of an an- chored plane and out the other. Francis Houle, seated in cock- pit, reported that the hook broke*' through the side, too, passing just under his nose to stick in the far side of the cockpit. The fisher- man ran. WARNING FOR TOURISTS R. A. Gibson, Federal Re- sources Department official in Ottawa told a tourist conference that tourists should keep out of Canada's hinterlands unless ac- companied by trained guides who \can bring them back alive.\ His reason was practical. \They make a lot of headlines, but it costs the government a lot of money to rescue them.\ TOO LITTLE FOR FINE Francis G. Gorman of Los An- geles got a speeding ticket here last month. Next day he moved to Shanghai. Municipal Judge O. Benton Worley yesterday re- ceived an air mail letter from Gorman protesting his innocence., hut enclosing \a little something\ to pay his fine. Judge Worley said the $1 mil- lion Chinese bill Gorman sent was about S13 short of the usual $15 fine for the offense. He noted, however, that Gorman spent an- other §1,100,000 for postage on his letter. HONEYMOON ISLE SINKS Circuit Judge John U. Bird of Clearwater, Fla. has ordered Honeymoon Island sold to pay off a $41,698 mortgage. Once a tropical resort for new- lyweds, the small island was de- veloped by C. C. Washburn of Tampa. His plan to turn it into a honeymooners' mecca was wide publicity in the 30s. The Is- land lies three miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. WINS TEACHER RAISE A school teacher won a $40-a- month raise for herself and a doz- en others in Tampa, Fla., after telling tiie Hillsborough County School Board she eould make more as a baby-sitter than teach- ing. Louise Eider, Amarilol, Tex., said she was getting #120 a month and could make $135 as a baby-sitter. The board voted her a raise ie §160 retroactive to the start of the school year. Miss luler is one of a group of teachers rated as substitutes, but who have been employed steadily. VIOLIN THIEF Consider Willie Bowen, sen- tenced to jail in San Francisco in the theft and pawning for $5 of a violin he later learned was the $10,000 Stradivarius of Sigmund Beels, former concertmaster of the London Symphony. \Could I have one last re- quest, Your Honor?\ he asked Judge Eustace Cullivan. \I'd sure like to hear Mr. Beels play on that fine violin.\ Mr. Bees obliged with a con- cert .from the witness stand The loudest applause came from Willie, as he was led\ off to jail. YOOHOO, JOHN You can't yell \John\ in the family of John W. Rogers in Rog- er, Mo. Both of liis grandfathers, his father-in-law, son-in-law, two grandsons, his son, two brothers-in-law, two uncles and five cousins answer to the front name of John. KEEPS LAST NAME Miss Frances Mackey became Mrs. Francis Mackey at the Lit- tle Chapel of Lakeside in San Francisco. And if you think that's funny—well, so did she. That's what started the romance. Mrs. John G. Mackey of The Dallas, Ore., happened to see the name of Army Flier Fran- ces Mackey, a Navy nurse in during the war. He was sta- tioned in North Africa. Amused, Mrs. Mackey sent the clipping to her daughter Francis Mackey, a Navy nurse in Hawaii. Frances was amused, too. Francis and Frances began writing letters to each other. After the war, they got a hook at each other and eventually went shopping together. For a ring. LOSES OUT The gasman in Milwaukee in sisted he was polite when he asked for a kiss. The court ruled otherwise. It seems the woman he asked was not his wife. Jerome Mackey said he entered the home of \Mrs. Delores Adam- czewski on a routine gas call. He denied grabbing her, but told the court he asked \politely\ for a kiss. Mrs. Adamczewski called her husband, who dashed out of bed ;just as Mackey was dashing out of the door. Mackey not only was fined $15 for disorderly conduct. He also lost his job. 37 Voluntary Leases Listed The Watertown Area Rent Of- fice received during September 1948 a total of 37 voluntary leases providing for rent increases up to 15 percent, Area Rent Direc- tor Allan G.

Dur- ing the first six months under the Housing and Rent Act of 1947, a total of 746 leases were filed. Light Bill About Same As Last Year The Ogdensburg home-owner's electric light bill compares fav- orably w^ith other cities through- out the country according to a report of the Federal Power Commission released today. The approximate monthly av- erage for 100 kilowatt hours in this city in the residential area in $3.69 according to J. Carlton Gebo, resident manager for the Central New York Power Corp. office here. Gebo said that figure was in ef- fect at the present time and has remained at that approximate amount for the past two years. The commission's annual sur- vey of 3,788 communities showed theft bills dropped in 299 com- munities and increased in only 263. \The net result was practical- ly no change in the level of av- erage residential \electric bills,\ the survey said. It added: \Increases in general were brought about by the application of fuel, tax and commodity clauses in rate scheduled. \The roports show that wide differences still exist between the five lowest and five highest resi- dential bills for identical quanti- ties of electricity used in the same population group.\ Lowest and highest bills for 100 kilowatt hours—the approximate monthly average—included: Cities of 50,000 population and more. Highest bills—Mount Vernon, New Rochelle and Yonkers, N. Y., $5.10; Boston, Newton and Somerville, Mass., $4.92; New York City (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens), $4.86; Allentown, Bethlehem, Lancast- Dance Of The Wood Nymphs Hammond [ Mrs. Mary Schermerhorn re- urned home from New York City Sunday evening.
