Taylor on Korean Front With the 187th Airborne Regiment Combat Team rfc. Frederick Taylor, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Taylor sr of 35 Church street, Garnerville, Is serving on the west central front in Korea with the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team. The 187th, which was at tr6ubled Koje Island — the prisoner -of-war camp so much in the news a few months ago — before coming to Korea, has undertaken an ener ­ getic training schedule at Taegu that covers all phases of airborne warfare. Jumping out of an aircraft at 1,000 feet is the easiest part of being a paratrooper, according to a story from the 187th head ­ quarters, and the men of the Regimental Combat Team are finding out that there is a lot of truth in that old airborne phrase. 'Angels from Heir In addition to two parachute jumps which each man takes dur ­ ing training, all the weapons used by the men of the 187th— “ The Angels from Hell ” — are being fired, and training problems, both day and night, are being under ­ taken. The two “ drops, ” consisting of three lifts each, bring the men down on the same vast drop zone the 187th used in “ Operation Showoff ” last November. Unconcerned Korean farmers continued working in the fields, hardly taking notice of a battalion of paratroopers pouring from mas ­ sive C-119 ’ s of the 403rd Troop Carrier Wing as they roared over ­ head. On the drop zone, hundreds of boys rushed about, helping the chutists from their harnesses with suprising skill. One drop was the climax of a sweltering 40-minute plane ride. The drop zone was a two-mile stretch of plowed fields and there were few calls for medics on the ground. After turning in the chutes to the riggers of the 187th ’ s Parachute Maintenance Detach ­ ment, the men ate a quick lunch of C rations. Back to Taegu The troopers started the trek back to a point where the trucks were waiting when the hot July sun was highest in the sky. The dusty road shimmered with rising heat waves as the men plodded toward Taegu. When the breaks came during the marching, the troopers drench ­ ed themselves with stream and well water for a brief relief from the stifling heat of the march. When the trucks finally arrived, the men wearily pulled themselves onto them and got out their can ­ teens to drink what little water they had managed to save during the march. Pfc. Taylor entered service last October 11 and received his basic training at Fort Benning, Ga. He was employed at Letchworth Vil ­ lage before entering the Army. A graduate of Haverstraw High School, he was a varsity letter man in football at the school. AT HAMPTON BEACH, N. H. Mr. and Mrs. George Wilson Bartine of Hillside avenue, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Hulme and family of Garnerville, and Mrs. Sarah Hulme are vacationing at Hampton Beach, N. H. Cpl. Anthony Michella Joins 2nd Armored Div. WITH THE 2nd ARMORED DIV. IN GERMANY — Cpl. An- thony M. Michella, son of Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Michella of 30 Samsondale avenue. West Haver ­ straw, now is serving in Germany with the 2nd Armored “ Hell on Wheels ” Division. The armored outfit arrived in Europe to join the North Atlantic Pact Army in July, 1951. During World War 11 the division was the first American unit to enter the fallen city of Berlin. Cpl. Michella, who entered the Army in February, 1951, arrived overseas July 26 and joined the division August 1. In civilian life he was employed by the Grand Union Company. Camp Hill School Has $2,000 Improvement Job Many improvements have been made at the Camp Hill School dur ­ ing the summer months. Unex ­ pended funds of old School District 12 were used to cover the expense of necessary repairs and altera ­ tions to the school. The district is now centralized. The building has been complete­ ly renovated and painted inside. From the gaily painted double red doors through the Indian rose en ­ trance hall, the school is spick and span. Paul White, well known in ­ terior decorator from New York who lives at White Acres in Po ­ mona, picked the color schemes which harmonize throughout the entire building. The girls ’ room has been paint ­ ed with pink walls, and pink tile floors and all new plumbing fix ­ tures have been installed. The boys ’ room has been done in green. The principal ’ s office is light yel ­ low, cloakrooms and classrooms green. All school floors have been covered in durable grey kentile. The stairs have inlaid linoleum with non-skid metal strips. A new drinking fountain has been installed in the hall. The cafeteria has been painted white. New tables and chairs have been purchased. A serving coun ­ ter was broken in the wall into the kitchen. This room is also used as an auditorium. The stage is green with new window curtains and stage drapes. Eighty yards of material was purchased by the board and made up by the P. T. A. members. Mrs. Paul White, Mrs. George Bryan, Mrs. Felix Monteith, Mrs. Edward Radzig, Mrs. Alvin Hastings, Mrs. Harry Stein, Mrs. Carl Marcum, outgoing president, and Mrs. Eric Weinberger, new president, brought their portable sewing ma ­ chines to the school to make the drapes. The roof has been repaired, gut­ ters and drains replaced, drive blacktopped and an automatic hot water heater installed. About $2,- 000 has been spent on Camp Hill School which will eventually be used as a community center after the central school is built.

The National Board of Fire Under ­ writers reports that fire loss in life and property is at an all-time high, measured in dollars, and that 10,000 communities will put on special programs during the week stressing safety and prevention. “ Stet ” to a proofreader means \leave as is. ” HA 9-4183 HA 9-4577 C. & F. Hewitt ELECTRICIANS HOME WIRING OF ALL ’ TYPES 64 Broadway, Haverstraw, N. Y. A deep-sea diver should know the answer. He ’ s loaded down with 35 pounds of lead in his shoes, 83 pounds of lead slugs around his waist. Diver Ray Garvik guessed that the price of lead is up 100%. Sorry, tvrong answer. Lead prices have gone up 250% since 1939. We know. To give you the kind of tele- Whst ’ s UD Ta&NE COMPANY , ■ I1..V since 1939 Lead up ............ 250JS Cable up .............. 11355 Poles up ........... 12855 Raw cotton up ... 33455 Taxes up ......... 16555 Buildings up .... 10655 Copper up ___ 12255 Steel up ..... 7355 but phone service is up an average of only 15 % phone service you need and deserve, we have to get all kinds of expensive raw materials, and we buy lead by the ton. The price of copper, for example, and telephone poles, too, has more than doubled. Sven the pliers our linemen use cost about a third again as much. We ’ re not complaining. But we did want you to know that we ’ re not vaccinated against inflation any more than you are. Your cost of living is up 92% since 1939. Our costs of materials, wages and taxes are up as much or more. Yet the average price of telephone service has risen only 15%. We think these facts speak for themselves — especially since telephone service today is better than ever before. NEW YORK TELEPHONE COMPANY O There ’ s something here someivhere about laying an egg... NCE UPON A TIME there were two farmers. Each had a hen that laid 20 eggs a month. Both farmers liked eggs, so one ate his. But the other did without, and put his eggs in an incubator which\ he bought by borrow ­ ing money. In no time he had 200 chickens from his one. A shocking profit! (Before taxes.) He sold some to pay down* the loan on his incubator; he ate some as a reward for all his labor in raising the brood. And he sold a good many to pay his income tax. He still had some left. Profit. So the farmer who had eaten all his eggs got a law passed. The neighbors divide'd up the chicken-raising-farmer ’ s \profits ” and ate them. After all, they said, he had more than he needed, and they were hungry. So, of course, the farmer wasn ’ t going to raise any more chickens just to have them taken away from him; he ate his eggs, too. In due time both the farmers ’ original hens died of old age, and then there weren ’ t any eggs for anybody. No chickens either. The neighbors were quite sure it was somehow the chicken raiser ’ s fault. Did the farmer, who used to eat all his eggs, enjoy his now-eggless meals any more for re.tliziiig that the farmer next door wasn ’ t enjoying any chicken? ROCKLAND LIGHT AND POWER CO.
