built by the Frank lin D Roosevelt Foundation while the late president was still alive was turned over to the federal government in 1940 and is now part of a national historic site at Hyde Park The Roosevelts had their family home here Mr Roosevelt was the first president to turn over his private papers and other persona docu ments to the government for pub lic use He had an office in one room of the library Doomed Oak Said Kilmer Poem Source NEW BRUNSWICK NJ AP huge white oak believed to have inspired Joyce Kilmer to write Trees will be cut down Wednesday a victim of old age The trees demise sounds a sad note for Rutgers University site of the oak and for those who say it was the tree Kilmer had in mind when he wrote the poem Others say the tree that inspired Kilmer is elsewhere Mahwah a community in northern Now Jer sey where the poet lived four years contends Kilmer wrote of the trees that shaded his home there In Montague City Mass they tell how Kilmer wrote Trees after seeing a spreading maple in the yard of an old mansion In Swanzey NH 25 miles north of Montague City its thought the late poet penned Trees while viewing a group of maples during a vacation No Proof Belief that the gnarled oak at Rutgers was the tree of Trees has grown over the years However a university spokes man admits We cant prove it the one Kiimer had in mind But then who can prove an inspira tion The legend is that as a boy in New Brunswick and as a student at Rutgers Kilmer sat under the sprawling oak its branches span ning more than a hundred feet in nerperfect symmetry He left here in 1906 Trees appeared in 1913 in a literary magazine while Kilmer was living in Mahwah Whether an oak a maple one tree or many inspired Kilmer will probably never be known but the oak at Rutgers perhaps the best known of the Kilmer trees will be on center stage Wednesday The oak stands alone in a field enclosed by a small white fence When felled it will be stored un til a decision is made on what to do with the wood If the trunk is sound a cross section will be given to the Sgt Joyce Kilmer American Legion Post in New Brunswick US Canada Urged To Ehd 6lnvisiblevTrade Barriers Egremont

HUNTING JACKETS Fabulous WASHINGTON UPI A study sponsored by the Canadian American Committee of the National Planning Association said today that both Canada and the United States should dis mantle a network of invisible tariffs created by customs laws and procedures Among the invisible bar riers to trade criticized in a 71 page study were Arbitrary procedures for setting the duti able value of imports in both countries errors in classification that mean a higher duty rate the functioning of escape clause and antidumping laws and ad ministration of requirements that imported articles be marked as to country of origin Loopholes and Confusion The report said customs laws in both countries not only crea ted openings for hidden tariff increases but also caused confu sion and uncertainty for impor ters and exporters and thus dampened down international trade Customs administration is impy too clumsy an instrument to be charged with administering io a substantial degree the national trade policies of either Canada or the United States the study said It has a great potential for creating uncertainties for ex porters and importers H said The report was written by Francis Masson a member of the analysis and review rtaff of the United States Commerce Depart ment balance of payments divi sion and Dr H Edward English director of research of the Canadian Trade Committee of the private planning association The CanadianAmerican com mittee which has sponsored a series of studies of United States Canadian economic and political relations is made up of 60 busi ness labor agricultural and pro fessional leaders from the two countries Standards Sought The report recommended that both countries play a more ac tive role in the International Cus toms Cooperation Council which has established and agreed on classifying goods and has moved toward similar rules on setting the import value on which the tariff is computed As an alternative the report suggested a bilateral
