Rule Sends New Year's Greetings During the War between the States my mother’s father wa! a private in the First North Carolina infantry. My father’s father was a blacksmith. He was conscripted to make horseshoes and do other minor repairs in the Confederacy. For over forty years prior to last May 31 I was a collector on the suburban trains on the Rock Island. Through the years I enjoyed the friendship of my Yankee passengers and co-work-ers. On my last run they really went all out in expressing their esteem. (Sun-Standard of June 2, 1960). To all my friends I send greetings and thanks. To Brother Paul Byrne who presented a list of names of policemen, who knew me; to Brother Harold J. McFadyen for the list of fellow employees; and to Mrs. Elsie Porth and Brother Joseph T. Janda for the many names of commuters who had ridden with me, I am grateful. Due to the fact that the amount shown with each of the many names on the several lists was not Confederate money and considering that my mother's father was wounded on two different occasions I feel that you will not think I am being conceited when I proudly say that I won where both my grand-paws lost.    Pickett 400 Mercer Road, Rockville, Maryland Stores Closed— (Continued from Paye I) planning special entertainment and open house lor Saturday night (only a very few in this area are on a reservation basis and all welcome last minute patrons). Churches in many cases prepare for New Year’s Eve watch parties and since New Year’s is on Sunday the religious significance of the occasion is fully emphasized The traditional “midnight” New Year’s Eve moues have been supplanted by earlier shows that run to that hour. At the Harvey theatre. 1.5408 Center. Harvey, there will be throe showings of the double feature Jerry Lewis in “Cinder* Fella” and Audy Murphy in “Hell Bent for Leather” at 5:30. 130 and 10:05 p m. Use Caution Ksw Year's Eva Motorists are cautioned by the Chicago Motor Club to exercise extreme caution in New Year’s eve and New Year's day driving. J. J. Cavanagh, president of the motor club, called on driver* to cooperate with police and to be extra alert if the weather causes hazardous road conditions. Said Cavanagh: “The New Year’s holiday always represents a dangerous period because of merry making and the general carefree attitude of the public. In addition, there always is the possibility of rain, sleet, or snow causing slippery street and highway conditions. This presents a double hazard for both motorists and pedestrians ” Cavanagh offered these holiday safety tips: Be alert for slippery spots; start early and drive at reduced speeds; make sure you can see ahead and on both sides of your car; signal well in advance of stops and turns; be considerate of pedestrians; and practice courtesy behind the wheel at all times.
