The ruling of the State F a ir Com­ mission for the cam p is as follow s : A boys’ camp w ill be organized for State Fair week, consisting o f one farm-reared boy from each county of the state between the ages o f fo u r ­ teen and eighteen inclusive, who shall be chosen in the follow ing m a n n e r: The district superintendents of a county shall constitute a com m ittee on arrangem e n ts for a county ju d g ­ ing contest and shall designate a suit­ able committee of judges consisting of three members and includin g eith­ er agent or officer o f the Farm B u ­ reau, the m a s ter of the Pom o na Grange, and one other. The three district superintendents met and appointed R. C. Parker, m a n ­ ager of the Suffolk C o u n ty F a rm B u ­ reau, Frank H. W e lls, master o f Po­ mona grange, and E.

Strong, o f S u f ­ folk county, intim a tes th a t he is going to m a ke i» strong effort to have the mileage books on the Long Is­ land Railroad le f t in effect. As the opening gun in his effort he sent a long telegram to W Hliam G. M cAdoo, Director General of the Railroads, stating that if the m ile­ age books have to be redeemed under the'new rates in effect Tuesday a con­ tract made w ith the purchasers w ill be violated. Judg e S tro n g ’s telegram follow s : “ The Long Island Railroad Com ­ pany, claim ing to act under your or­ ders, is attem p tin g to void their con­ tracts and call in all m ileage tickets and fam ily trip tickets sold prior to Jun e 10, 1918. ‘W h ile it is the duty of every citi­ zen to support the Governm e n t with T H E E A S T H A M P T O N ST AR. both voice and money, there is no obligation on the individual citizen to support the stockholders of the railroad, although it is w e akly claim­ ed that this is an indirect support of the Government. “ The Long Island Railroad has re­ ceived a special charter from the State of New Y o r k ; it is not incor­ porated under the general railroad act. By the charter the State of New York expressly retains the right to regulate the fares. The State has regulated these fares and certain mileage and trip tickets were sold at State rates prior to Jun e , 1918. A contract was thus entered into which, although it contains no clause fo r a cancellation, the railroad is now at­ tem p ting to void. “ I call your attention to these at­ tempts to violate the obligation of a contract in direct violation o f the provisions of the Federal and State Constitution, and I ask that you give such instructions as are necessary to protect the contracts already en­ tered into with the public.”— Eagle.
