Acton  ‘I.,  Wm0'  Edition  nvE|»  Coverfaylli  Maynard, HH Bedford and I  VOLUME XUV—44 Year* OM  WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1934  Percy Rockefeller, second son of the late William Rockefeller, who Was John D, Rockefeller’s brother, died recently, only fifty-six years old. He was a highly Intelligent man and a hard worker.  Uke other men of great wealth, Mr. Rockefeller suffered heavy losses In the lilil) shrinkage of valuta, losses so great that he de scribed them to the senate stock exchange committee as “terrible, perfectly horrible, losses,*  The strain anti anxiety of depression years, with values tumbling, may have had something to do wRh Mr. Rockefeller's Illness and death, not because of any love for money, of which lie had plenty left, hut because of the strain In fighting financial disaster.  Decision Reached at Special Town Meeting of Citizens—Appoint Committee to Investigate Electric Light Rates  Professor Mllllknn thinks that no man will ever go tweuty miles up Into the atmosphere. “The pres enc record of ahunt twelve miles probably will stand forever," said he. "Forever" Is the longest word In any language, and one that rarely la true.  If men want to go up five Jinn dred miles above the earth, and look around outside of our Atmosphere, they will do it. Twelve thousand years ago, men living In the late Stone age had no weapons but Sharp Hints and hows and arrows. They have ahead of them hundreds of millions of years on -this planet,, as Professor Millikan knows. Von cannot limit their accomplishments with any “forever’’ or “never.’’  Too had. hut what can you clo •bout It? The great Samuel John-•on said no man e\er wrote well  OFFICERS ARE INSTALLED  Mrs. Marion Whitney Noble Grand of Willow Re-bekah Lodge  except for pay, ami it is certain that many brilliant minds nave gone to waste because their owners happened not to need money.  Byron probably wouldn’t have written It lie had not had a chih foot. Vanity made him work With two good feet hard work would not have been necessary.  Marcus Aurelius would probably have “made it shorter ami snappier" and more interesting lf lie had not been emperor.  At first men work for money. When once they start working ambition takes the place of money and they continue until the grave •wallows ^jieni. Money, which means Independence of other men's orders, the only freedom In civilization, Is use*ai in Itself, und a useful incentive to Im rd work.

Burial was iii the family lot in Et. Bernrd’s remotely, this town.  O. B. Winters, Hying from New York to California, writes: “Flying would be easier lf a prominent roo! was marked in each town." Chambers of commerce should discuss that. It is an important kind of advertising now neglected and the national government should do something about it, providing air-road signs for flyers and huge arrows pointing. “This way, north to Chicago," “This way to Seattle," "This way to New Orleans,” “This way to Key West.”  James A. Moffatt, President Roosevelt’s housing administrator, predicts that 3,000,(XKJ new homes will be built, and will put $2,DOO,OOO,(JOO of private funds Into new construction, employing many. Three mil lion new houses will arouse serious thinking in landlords of houses al ready built, especially those that have let their properties run down.  The base cruelty of human beings passes all understanding. When ' yon read of the horrible tortures that representatives of various religions have Inflicted upon each Other in the past, all “for the glory ct God," you are horrified.  It Is more horrible to read of modern criminals’ seizing, binding, fastening to a tree an old man supposed to have saved money. Vinita. Okla., reports the details. The old man’s hands were shot through the pnluts with bullets, his feet burned With a red-hot poker, all to extort IOO.  Parker Moves To Main Street  Maynard.—Thorn;:* F.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
