O lea n T o P la y Hamburg In Benefit Game Salamanca football fans will have a chance to see two of the best semi- pro teams in Western New York when the two strong football elevens of Hamburg'and Clean meet at Vet erans Memorial Park on Thanksgiv ing Day, November 29th. The gate receipts of the game will go to the widdw of the late William Brown whO' was accidentally killed November 4th at Hamburg, in the game played there between the Sal amanca Benz Engineers and Ham- burg. Stunned by the loss of their popular teammate, the Engineers canc^ed the remaining games on their schedule and arranged a game between the two powerful semi-pro teams. Due to their own grief because of the loss of their teammate, and a ^ c e r e desire to extend Sunpathy 3 and practical aid to Mrs. Thelma Warwick Brown, widow of the pop ular youijg Salamanca athlete, the Engineers are putting forth a great deal of effort to make the proceeds of the game a success and deserve the wholehearted support of the community. During his high school years, ‘‘Bill” as he was known to his team mates and friends, played football, basketball, baseball and was also ac tive in track. He was considered one of the best athletes, that ever wore the red and gray colors. Tickets for the benefit game went on sale Tuesday of this week and may be purchased from any of the members of the Engineers team. - 00 - Le^fion and Auxiliary Hold Meetings John D.

Annual Christmas Seal Luncheon JSfeW York State Road Signs T o AH B e Black and W h ite The directional signs in New York State will be done uniformly in black and white as they need re painting, instead of the black and yellow some of them now use, it is announced by David Noonan, Deputy Commissioner of the Division of Highways. Tests made in Pennsyl vania and elsev/here, -it is said, have proved the black and white sign eas ier to read than those having other color combinations. The change will be accomplished, graduaEy and it will be several months before all -the markers are repainted. The twelfth annual Christmas Seal Luncheon meeting was held in Ames Hall, Ellicottville on Tuesday, No vember 13th. Despite a severe storm, one hundred people enjoyed a meal, served by the ladies of the Eastern Star under the leadership of Mrs. W. H. Shearman, matron, and music by the Ellicottville High School Or chestra led by Professor Gullo. W. H. Shearman, County Christ mas Seal Chairman, presided at the meeting which followed the luncheon. The invocation was given by Rev. Otis Epperson of Ellicottville. Dr. C. A. Greenleaf, president of the County Tuberculosis Association, spoke on “What We Have Accomp lished.” His remarks, emphasized by the use of charts, showed the pro gress of health work and especially of corrections from 1922 to 1934, inclusive. Dr. R. M. Atwater, Coun ty Commissioner of Health, briefly outlined the value received for the money expended in the County for the development of the County De partment of Health program. Thru state aid and income the actual cost to the County for the tuberculosis sanatorium has been reduced to one quarter of the 1951 figure. At the end of his talk Dr. Atwater quoted George Vincent, former speaker at a Christmas Seal Luncheon, who ended his discourse by saying, “Let’s go out and cover every adhesive spot in Cattaraugus County with Christmas Seals. Dr. J. H. Korns, in his talk on “Tuberculosis To-day”, emphasized the fact that tuberculosis is not her editary. He said in part that the av erage layman today considered it a disgrace to be known as one suffer ing from tuberculosis. Parents are afraid to have their children examin ed for fear they might be found suf fering with tuberculosis. These con ditions hinder to a great degree the finding of tuberculosis cases, accord ing to Dr. Korns. Miss Wheeler of Portville gave an inspirational address on “Dr. Tru deau and ‘The Little Red’ illustrated from her intimate knowledge of the famous pioneer in Tuberculosis work. Just 50 years ago Dr. Edward L. Trudeau, suffering from tubercu losis himself, went into the moun tains around Saranac Lake and built a little four-room cottage which is known today as “The Little Red”. The Christmas Seal this year carries a picture of this cottage. It shows a winter scene with a sleigh drawn by two horses before the cottage. It was from this small beginning that developed the 600 modern well- equipped sanatoria in every part of the United States today. In the fight against tuberculosis today doctors recognize the ideas approved by Dr. Trudeau; that is, the necessity of rest, fresh air, good food, and the cooperation of the patient with those directing the treatment of the disease. One fact emphasized today is: “EVERY TU BERCULOSIS CASE COMES FROM SOMEONE WITH TUBERCULO SIS!” Those from Salamanca in attend ance were Robert Vallely, City chairman of the campaign; C. N. Abbey, Charles L. Finch, Mrs. Ella M. Finch, Mrs. James McFarland, Mrs. Mary Stapleton, Mrs. Minnie Lowe, Mrs. Margaret Gastman, Miss Caroline Pringle, Miss Katherine Nolph, Mrs. William Hubertus, Mrs. Henry Neff, Mrs. Laura Wilson, Mrs. Emmons Prank, Mrs. Matthew Web er, Mrs. John L.
