Charity Ball Arousing Enthusiatm Among Suffolk Members \For we won't get home until morn- ing,\ was the theme song of a group of thlrty-flve members of the Patch- ogue Council, Knights of Columbus v.'ho attended the Long Island Chap- ter's annual Charity Ball la.st January in Brooklyn. Speaking of the occasion, at a re- cent committee meeting, William J. Thornhlll. Jr., Vice-chairman for Suf- folk County on this year's ball com- mittee said. \But there was a rude awakening for those ball attendees, when they emerged from the ballroom into the frigid air of Brooklyn, last January. The hour was so late, and tlie weather so frosty that a quick vote taken on the spot, decided that no effort be made to go home at all.\ \And continued Mr. Thomhill, \the Approximately 500 Long Island farm- ers attended the three day potato show and exhibit held at William Kromer's greenhouses at Hicksville last Thurs- day, Friday and Saturday. Over 125 of those farmers were from the North Pork. A feature of the exhibit was the 7000 hills of samples of Kromer's Maine seed potatoes growing under glass fa view of which Is pictured above). The vines were over a foot high and some were already in blossom. This Is one of the most extensive planting of po- tatoes In greenhouses ever attempted on Long Island .Very favorable com- ment has been received from the lo- cal farmers who attended, on the re- sults of the trial tests. William Kromer has completed his nineteenth year in the production of certified seed potatoes in Maine. Each year he has increased his sales and li now distributing over two hundred cars bf seed potatoes to Long Island farmers. This year Kroemer announced his climax was, that they forthwith jour- „ , , . , . neyed to the Hotel Capitol, in New safety cam^lgn in order York, there to spend the night be-i'\ to their I points Include certlfica- fore attempting to return homes In Patchogue.\' After recalling this anecdote, Mr. Thornhlll concluded, \However this cannot be repeated this year because the new 'streamlined' 1940 ball Is be- ing held In the month of April, noted for Its balmy weather as compared to January.\ Mr. Thornhlll a Post Grand Knight of Stirling Council, Greenport. L. I., was appointed by John F. Connelly. Geneial Chairman, to head the ball plans In Suffolk County. He lives at 164 6th Street, Greenport. He reports that enthusiasm for the ball, which will be held at Columbus Club, 1 Prospect Park West, Brocdclyn, on the night of April 12, is greater than it has been for some time, and con- fidently predicts a capacity attendance, with Suffolk County well represented. Mr. Thornhlll Jr., is now currently following in the footsteps of his father, who a score of years ago was Grand Knight of Stirling Council and also a District Deputy of the first, or Suf- folk District. ;tion by the State of Maine a Florida test of all seed offered for sale and. Anally, a trial test in their greenhouses at Hicksville. In this manner Kroe- mer Is able to offer seed potatoes to Long Island farmers entii-ely free from disease. William Kroemer, Jr. reports that two readings were obtained by the State of Maine Inspection Bureau In the Florida tests before the freeze-up In that state, and both of these read- ings showed that the potatoes were free of any disease. 9,000 MEN AND WOMEN GET TELEPHONE CALL FROM 'BOSS HIMSELF' His Chat With Organization Is a Feature of Program for Company's Birthday Villain In This 'Thriller' Trapped By Overseas Call V)i A \tluiller\ in real life took place recently in a series of rapid develop- ments which may be summariked as follows: Sccnc 1.

At these and at various other points in this country and Canada, employees heard Howard Heinz, son of the founder of their industry, speak to them from Pitts- burgh. His voice was carried over tele- phone wires to loud speakers in the din Ing halls. Several other members of the organization also \called up\ from dinners In New York, California and Canada. Voices of executives o£ a targe oil con- cern, engafied in a home office confer- ence In New York City, were carried recently by telephones and loud speak- ers to some 3,000 dealers assembled in that city and in Albany, Ruffalo, Garden City, Poughkeepsle, Ilochester and Syracuse.

A young man who didn't land a Job with a telephone company nine years ago, later became great enough as a screen star to play the role of Alexan- der Graham Bell, Hie Inventor of the telephone. Don Anieuhe, the young man in question, told about this recently In an Interview with nine newspaper report- ers scattered throughout the country on a telephone hook-up. Speaking from the exact spot in Boston where in 1876 Bell spoke the first words transmitted by telephone, Mr. Ameche chatted with reporters In Albany, New York City, Syracuse, Atlanta, Oaltlmore, Pitts- burgh, San Antonio, and Washington. He told them of his role In the new pic- ture, \The Stoly of Alexander Graham Bell.\ The actor spoke first over a replica of the telephone which Bell used sixty- three years ago. His voice through this Instrument was understandable but muffied. He then switched to a modern telephone, and his voice, a deep bari tone, came in as \clear aa a bell.\ tVIODERN MONARCH RULED TINY EMPIRE BY 'PHONE A Kuropean coiiiitry about the size of Stateu Island, New York City's Island borough, has been governed for years by telephone. This unusual para- dox was revealed upon the recent death of Prince t'rauz 1, 85-year-old ruler of Liechtenstein, the world's tiniest abso- lute monarchy. Usually at any one of his thirty-six Austrian castle estates, several of which exceeded his domain in area, the courtly gray-bearded ruler used the telephone extensively to handle the legislative affairs of his kingdom. This little empire with some 11,500 subjects, fifteen members of Parlia- ment, three policemen, and no xtanding army to support, lies on the river Rhine between Austrian Tyrol and the Swiss Alps. A TT EN T I O N Long Island Potato Farmers Wc have completed cyir nineteenth year in the production of Certified Seed Potatoes in the State of Maine. In accordance with our policy of always striving to produce the finest Quality Seed Stock for Long Island growers, we have this year inaugurated the following 3-Point Safety Campaign: (1) All our seed has been certified by the State of Moine. (2) Tested in Florida with official readings. (The State of[Naine Inspection Bureau took two readings before the freeze-up in Florida. Those readings showed the seed entirely free from disease). (3) We tested 9 6 samples of our seed in our greenhouses at Hicksville. (These samples have been viewed by many Long Island farmers and they have commented favorably on the result of these tests). As in previous years, we have the same varieties of a very much higher quality. 4 Green Mountains Chippeivas Cobblers Warbas WILLIAM KROEMER Riverhead 3079 Hicksville 500
