Glen Versprill Sends $25 to Help Pay for Pumper No. 1 Truck

The smaller No. 1 pumper, as mentioned last week , is here and in condition to be run to fires. The primary purpose of fitting up this truck was to serve the farm people about Wolcott, as the village is amply served by the big new Buffalo pumper.

The latter is the property of the village, while the No. 1 truck was financed by the fire department. When contributions were solicited, a number of farmers, appreciating the protection furnished their property by the village apparatus, said they would gladly chip in, but wanted to wait till the truck was actually here before so doing.

On Monday Glen Versprill, carrying out this promise, sent a check for $25 to the firemen. Other gifts will be gratefully received, as it is now up to the department to pay for the pump and other fixtures put on the truck.

The clutch on the Buffalo pumper has been supplied with new parts and thoroughly overhauled. It is now in good condition and works perfectly. With the two trucks it should be possible to fight almost any fire successfully, provided water is available; and the booster tanks enable a little water to be used very effectively.


Mrs. Hugh Green Caught in Elevator Well Just Prior to Serious Operation

Mrs. Hugh Green was operated upon at the Geneva City hospital last Friday morning and is doing as well as could be expected. The operation was preceded by a terrible experience which falls to the lot of few, and might have had very serious consequences.

As she was being wheeled into the elevator to be taken down to the operating room, the cage, for some reason not understood, started down the well. This pitched her, head-foremost from the wheeled cot, and when the roof of the car came level with the floor, her legs were pinned fast, and there she hung, inside the car.

The presence of the cot prevented her legs from being broken, and the car was stopped; but how to get it back was a problem, for the attendant had stepped out to help wheel her inside.

For 15 minutes she hung there, while employees, nurses and doctors worked frantically. Finally the car was inched up, and she was drawn out. If she had been nervous in the first place, her condition by that time can better be imagined than described. She was quieted with a hypodermic injection, and then, after a brief consultation with her husband, it was decided to go on with the operation.

No permanent ill-affects are apprehended now, but, of course, recovery will be slower than would have been the case under normal conditions.


Rochester Plumber Has Neck Injured on the Plank Road

When Federal Revenue Officers Fred Koker and John Lahoe came to te (the) curve in the state road near the Yellow Red schoolhouse corner last Wednesday, the found an overturned car containing J. William Roblin of Rochester, with another car containing three men who were endeavoring to extricate Roblin from his automobile. The officers rendered assistance, and discovered that he apparently was badly hurt.

The four were plumbers from Rochester, who had been fitting up the new bathhouses at Fair Haven State park, and were on their way home when the Roblin car skidded on the ice and went over.

As it was apparent that the Rochester man could not stand the trip home, the Federal officers brought him to the Metcalf annex in this village and secured a doctor. The next day the Bush-Robertson ambulance took him to St. Mary's hospital in Rochester.

Just how seriously he was hurt was difficult to determine, but apparently one or more of his neck vertebrae had been either fractured or dislocated.


Widow of C. Devroe Cleveland passes Away After at Sodus Hospital

Mrs. Nellie Sharpe Cleveland, widow of the late C. Devroe Cleveland, died at the Northern Wayne hospital in Sodus at 5 a. m., last Friday, Feb. 13. She was operated upon at the hospital for the removal of gallstones on the preceding Wednesday forenoon, and did not possess sufficient strength and vitality to rally.

Mrs. Cleveland's age was 58 years, 9 months and 16 days, she having been born in the state of Michigan, April 27, 1872, the daughter of the late Charles G. and Eleanor Sharpe. Practically all of her life had been spent in this section, much of it in this village. About a dozen years ago they purchased the former W. J. Phillips farm in East Port Bay street, where Mr. Cleveland died on Oct. 8, 1928.

Mrs. Cleveland was a good neighbor and a faithful friend. Her passing brings grief to all who knew her well.

She is survived by a son, Marion Cleveland; a half sister, Mrs. Estus Hall; her step-mother, Mrs. Charles Sharpe, and a step-sister, Mrs. William Ely, all of Wolcott.

The funeral was held at 2 p. m., Monday, from the house, the Rev. Jesse Mullette officiating. Interment was made beside her husband in Glenside cemetery.


Shock Proves Fatal to Native of Huron at His Home in Newark

Dr. Edwin Whittier York, aged 38, died at his home, 111 High street, Newark, at 3 o'clock last Friday morning.

He was born in Huron in 1892 to Dr. and Mrs. George D. York, left Wolcott with his parents in early childhood, and received his education in Newark high school, Manlius Military academy, Bellevue Medical college, New York and Harvard.

At the opening of the World war he enlisted from Boston as a junior lieutenant in the navy and was sent to Paris to establish a flying field there He later was transferred to London, and under Admiral Simms, made a Mediterranean cruise and then, after several months in Cuba was again with Simms, when Simms' flagship acted as convoy to the first transatlantic flight via the Azores.

He was honorably discharged in San Francisco, ranking senior grade lieutenant, medical corps, and 10 years ago established the Newark hospital.

Dr. York was a Mason, a Shriner and Elk and also an American Legionnaire.

Last Thursday morning her walked from his home to the home of his mother two blocks away together with his wife and little daughter. He appeared in the best of health and seemed to have recovered from a slight shock where he sustained several months ago.

In the afternoon, however, a second shock confined him to his bed and he remained unconscious until he died.

He is survived by his wife, Jane Faas York, and two daughters, Mary and Jean; his mother, Mrs. George D. York, of Newark, and a sister, Louise York Lennox, who is now in the West Indies on a cruise. Mrs. Fay H. Blauvelt, of Wolcott, is an aunt, and Mrs. Clement Wadsworth, a cousin.

Funeral services were held from the Park Presbyterian church, Newark, Monday, the Rev. Willis Sanderson officiating with Masonic and Legion honors. Burial was made in Willow Avenue cemetery, Newark.

About 35 business men got together, Monday night, to make an intensive search for candidates for village officers (unreadable) the Citizens' caucus to beheld at the Engine house this week Friday evening. It was felt that such action was necessary in view of the difficulty experienced in the past in getting desirable men to accept nominations when these were sprung upon them at the caucus.

A lot of people were considered the choice finally narrowing down to the following: For Mayor, Harold C. Whitford: for trustees, Ernest L. Brinkerhoff and Asahel J. Foster. Some little persuasion was required, but, ultimately these men agreed to accept, and the incident was closed. All present were pledged to support this ticket and to use their influence to persuade others to give it their support.

The foregoing is certainly a good ticket, and, with the members of the board that hold over, should give the village a careful, honest, economical administration, which is a prime necessity at the present time.


Robert Monaghan's Prize Pupil Selected for This Year's National High School Chorus

Miss Judith VanSpeybroeck, soprano soloist and student of Robert O. Monaghan, in the Fair Haven high school, has again been selected as a member of the National High School chorus.

The chorus this year will consist of about 500 boys and girls from high schools all over the United States. This year the chorus is to meet and present a program under the direction of Dr. Hollis Dann, director of music at New York university, in conjunction with the national convention of the Education association.

The convention will open in Detroit, Feb. 20, and the final concert of the chorus is to be present on Tuesday evening, Feb. 24. A number of pretentious and inspiring selections are being learned for the concert.

All of the music must be memorized and given with the utmost skill at the command of the singers, which should prove not only an inspiration to those who hear it, but also to the members of the chorus.

Miss VanSpeybroeck has sung in Wolcott, and gave great pleasure to those who heard her.


Former Resident of North Wolcott Dies in Auburn

Myron DeWaters, a native of North Wolcott and well known in this section, died at his home in Auburn, Tuesday, aged 74 years. His wife passed away last November.

E. J. Cornwell Painfully Hurt Last Thursday Night

Edwin J. Cornwell, aged father of Mrs. B. T. Moore, came near being fatally injured last Thursday evening. he was not feeling well, and left his room to go to the bathroom making the wrong turn in the dark.

Coming to the front stairway, he walked off into space, and fell at least as far as the first landing, perhaps farther. He had the strength to get up and go to the bathroom, where his son-in-law heard him and went to his assistance. His back was painfully bruised and as he was otherwise ill, his condition is quite serious.

Pneumonia has now developed, and as he is nearly 87 years of age, the outlook is doubtful.

Mrs. Moore came home from the hospital, Sunday night, Frank N. Waldorf going to Geneva with her husband and driving them back. She is much better and was anxious to return home, through she dreaded the drive over the slippery roads. She feels that Dr. C. C. Lytle did much for her during her stay at the hospital.


Another Meeting to be Held in Masonic Temple Dining Room Next Monday Evening

Invitations have been sent out to over 100 representative citizens of the school districts surrounding this village to attend a meeting to be held in the dining room of the Masonic Temple on Monday evening, Feb. 23, beginning at 7:30 o'clock. The Rev. Boyd Little, of Clifton Springs, will again be here to speak on the centralization of schools, with possibly other speakers.

It is also expected to have the High School band out to play a number of selections. Refreshments will be served by the ladies of Draper chapter, O. E. S. after the speaking. It is earnestly hoped that everyone invited may find it possible to attend.

The solicitors appointed by Mrs. Ida E. Cosad, district superintendent of schools, to secure signatures to the petitions now being circulated in most of the contiguous districts are doing good work. It is necessary to secure the signatures of at least 51 per cent, of the legal voters of each district independently to bind the district.

In the Rice's Mill district over 80 per cent. of the voters have already signed. The Furnace district is also far over the top, with the Spring Green district, at last report, lacking only one name to have a majority. That district undoubtedly will be safe before this is read.

A good start has been made in the Richardson's corners district. The Stone schoolhouse (Watson's) and the West Butler districts have yet to be canvassed. Word has been received from some of the districts (at least three) back of the front line that they want to come in. Petitions, no doubt, will be sent to them for circulation, though centralized district as originally outlined by the State Education department at Albany, called only for the six districts in immediate contact with the present Union district, No. 1.

Bert Stanley has done fine work in district No. 10 (Rice's Mill), Huron. With 52 taxpayers or parents to approach, he had 34 signed to the petition last Friday, with several others promised. He was then nearly ready to turn in the petition. Such a document, to be effective, must contain the names of 51 per cent. of the legal voters of the district. A total of 27 signatures would have been sufficient.

Bernard Bassett was doing almost equally well in the Spring Green district in Wolcott. He said he had only a few more names to get when his worries would be over. In the Furnace district, Floyd Snyder and Myron Williams felt assured of success.


The East Rose Home Bureau unit, No. 1, will hold their next meeting, Saturday afternoon, Feb. 21, with Mrs. Elsie Waldorf. Mrs. Gatchell will give the third and last lesson on housing. All members are urged to be present.


To Rice's Mill Home Bureau unit will meet with Mrs. Hazel Doolittle, Feb. 25, at 2 p. m. Mrs. Evalyn B. Gatchell will give her last lesson on housing- Mrs. Minnie Webb, vice-chairman.

Mrs. Follay Writes About Death of Her Mother

Editor Lake Shore News:

I suppose you are accustomed to losing old subscribers by death.

My mother, Margaret E. Sennett, widow of Michael E. Sennett, and I were stricken with pneumonia at the same hour on Sunday, Feb. 1.

She died on Monday, Feb. 9, but my heart stood the strain, though I am still confined to my bed and am very weak but out of danger.

I never saw my mother after she was taken sick. She was buried in Baldwinsville, Thursday, Feb. 9. Besides me she is survived by her son, Robert B. Sennett, of Rochester, and three grandchildren.

We drove to Wolcott last August and mother enjoyed so much visiting with old friends, for my parents lived in the vicinity of Wolcott--mostly in the red brick house at "The Furnace," from 1888 till 1915. She always retained a deep interest in Wolcott and Wolcott people.- Laura Sennett Follay. Binghamton, N.Y. Feb. 16, 1931.

Sheriff's Sale Sign Affixed to Charlton Foster's Window.

Deputy Sheriff Charles H. Wright yesterday morning affixed a sheriff's sale notice to the front window of Charles S. Foster's hardware store, offering the entire stock for sale, Feb. 24, to satisfy a wholesaler's claim. The notice was a carbon copy and rather balled up as to dates, the sheet having slipped in the typewriter. Whether that would affect its legality is problematical, but lawyers say it might.

Mr. Foster has been carrying a heavy load for some time, long credits to customers and bad bills, coupled with small capital, making it difficult for him to meet his obligations. He has worked hard, and it an honest man.

His brothers, Ira and Asahel, are going to see what they can do to help him out. Much sympathy is felt for him.

Little Lois Buckminster Drives Packet of Cotton Into Cavity

Lois, 18-month-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Milton Buckminster, had a pack of cotton driven into her nostril last Saturday, necessitating a trip to Rochester to effect its removal. The child had a severe cold, and her mother was treating her nostrils with a swab of cotton on a toothpick, when Lois threw up her hand, forcing the cotton far into the cavity, where it remained.

Dr. R. G. Stuck was unable to remove it, and advised prompt resort to a specialist, so the parents took Lois to the city, where the cotton was taken out. Lois did not seem at all disturbed by the mishap.


Mrs. Guy Fowler Helps Chester Tennyson Entertain Friends

Mrs. Guy Fowler, of lower Wadsworth street, last Saturday afternoon gave a birthday party for little Chester Tennyson, nephew of Mrs. Florence Spaulding, who lives with her. The children of the Brown district school, Miss Betty Wilmoth, teacher, we present, ten of them to celebrate Chester's tenth birthday.

They had games and other forms of amusement with a fine supper at 4 p. m., and everybody present had a good time, including Mrs. Fowler.

The latter who is an invalid, perhaps overexerted herself, and was not so well on Sunday, but on Monday she went to Sodus for treatment as usual, and seemed better. Giving others a good time surely ought not to be permanently harmful to anyone.

Boys Win Contests

The Young Farmers made an excellent showing in the Farm and Home week contests at Cornell last week Thursday and Friday. These contests are state-wide in interesting agriculture and all state agricultural schools.

Eight-six of these schools were represented and took part in the contests. That is real competition, and to be even mentioned among the ten high teams is considered an honor.

The Wolcott boys competed in each of the six judging contests as well as in the radio broadcasting. They were awarded a silver loving cup for placing second in potato judging. The Wolcott team consisted of Wyman Loveless and Ralph Cook. Wyman was third high among all competitors in this contest.

In plant disease judging the team composed of Charles Hall and Arthur Kasper placed second, for which the school was awarded a volume on plant diseases. In this contest Charles Hall scored 97 out of a possible 100 points for second highest individual score, for which he was awarded a silver medal.

The team consisting of Wyman Loveless and Arthur Kasper placed fourth in the fruit-judging contest. No award was given for this placing, only the three highest receiving awards. Wyman Loveless again in this contest showed his superior judging ability by scoring third highest among the contestants.

The standing of the local boys in the other contests is not known at this writing, as only the three highest teams in each contest were announced, except in the case of the fruit judging contest, which was very close and seemed worthy of mention. Announcement of the school's rating in the other contests will be received from Cornell in the next few days.

It is worthy of mention that in both the contests in which Wolcott placed second the first prize went to a state agricultural school, where agriculture is the principal subject taught. Morrisville won the plant disease contest and Cobleskill the potato-judging contest,

Those who listened to the broadcast by the boys, Thursday morning, know how well they did in that contest. The first and only prize in this competition was awarded to Trumansburg Central school.

The boys who were on the air from Wolcott were: Evertt Kline, Charles Hall, Edmund Rings and Ralph Cook. This broadcasting contest was the first of its character ever conducted in this world, to the knowledge of those in charge of it at Cornell. It is not known whether or not this contest will be an annual feature of the Cornell contests.

Guy Kellogg, accompanied by Clifford Foster, started for Rochester, Sunday afternoon, and came to grief on Snyder's hill in Huron. The truck skidded on the ice changed ends and crashed into a telephone pole, which it sheared off at the ground.
