THE WEATHER TODAY Unqualified praise of the approx- imately 200 men at Civilian Con- servation Corps Camp, near Fishing Creek, and for their splendid reforesta- tion work was expressed toddy by Joacpii D BUJ.CI, ouiiianamg ciuien 01 Frederick, simultaneously with the an- nouncement that the will be con- tinued-as a winter camp by the Unit- ed Government. The people of Frederick, stated Mr. Baker, do not realize what a treat piece of work is being done for the community by the Civilian Conserva- tion Corps at trie expense of the Gov- ernment and at very small expense to the city, and business men and local residents should visit the site and see for themselves the road-building and other progress being made there. Tribute was paid by Mr Baker to the untiring efforts of City Engineer Elmer St.C. Maxwell as being instrumental hi having the camp located in Fred- erick county, and in addition to Mr. Maxwell's role in the movement, fur- ther tribute was paid to the Mayor and Aldermen for their part in the project Contradicting what he feared might be a misunderstanding on the pan of the public to the effect that he, personally, had furnished bathhouses and lights for the camp, Mr Baker clearly stated that he had not done so, and that credit for the Installation of both bathhouses and lights should go to the Mayor and Aldermen, who have lent their entire support to the project. The expense to the city of WedertcVTas'Been cttafMhEHfel? small In relation to the great benefit the community will derive from the loca- l-ton of thf rsmn with m-n con- stantly working to transform the site near the watershed into a form of na- tural park, added M> Baker The lat- ter has traveled over oart of road made by men, and the natural beauty of the surroundings, where pic- nics are held and tourists enjoying nding, was cited as one benefit from the project. Officers and men are al- ways glad to receive visitors, and the general public was urged to avail itself of the opportunity of visiting that sec- tion of the county. In discussing the compliment men at the reforestation site paid him in naming the place "Camp Mr. Baker today termed it "a kindly ges- ture" and expressed appreciation of the friendly act but stated that it could not be named officially after him, that the only camp actually named for him is the Boy Scout camp near Braddock Heights, which is his personal prop- erty. He then paid hearty tribute to the spirit manifested oy the men and declared himself deeply impressed with their unselfishness and regard for their dependents elsewhere During various visits to the camp. Mr Baker has" mingled with the men He greeted them on the night of their arrival here, and in conversation with them learned of their individual unemployment dif- ficulties. Some of the boys were de- scribed as slightly more than of and all of them being en- gaged to worthwhile work both for their families and the community. Bach man receives only 15 per month, food and lodging, the remaining (25 of his salary going to his dependents. One man especially concerned for his family kept only three dollars for his own use j from a month's salary. Their spirit and the work they are doinj places T fin fVtAW, performing this declared Mr Baker. Word that the camp near Fishing Creek is to be continued throughout the winter was received today with pleasure and as an Indication that the camp is regarded favorably by the Gov- ernment. President Rooee'.elt recent- ly was invited to visit the site, and it is hoped that he may be able to go there in the near future.
