R, Davis McAfee, attorney, speaking to the Court on behalf of the volunteers, said that investigations had revealed that no additional reduction in insurance rates can be obtained by reason of the operation of the Jefferson County Fire Department. He explained that by complying with rules and regulations set up by the Inspection Bureau, volunteer units had secured rate reductions and that other units were working out compliance schedules calculated to lower the rates in their respective communities. The Firefighters organization submitted a written report to the Court, outlining proceedings of their negotiations with Chief Thompson and consultations with Inspection Bureau representatives.

April 13 The State of Kentucky will be honored at Washington Cathedral on Sunday, April 18. Prayers will be offered for the government and people of the State and Kentucky men and women who have served the nation in timeof war will be particularly commemorated. On Kentucky Sunday the flag is borne in proces- sion with the national colors.

Triuury Dftartmtnt Predictions are for the Ohio flood River to reach a stage at Louisville by Sunday. Little and big creeks, rivers and all sorts of water courses have been raging the past week. Chenoweth Run and Floyd's Fork have been as high, unofficially, as during the 4937 flood. Hope rose again in the breasts of lowlands dwellers, as the sun rose Thursday morning, promis ing a recession of the waters and a new drying out process to permit tillers bf the soil to "dig in" again and resume the spring planting. Spencer County's capital, while in the very act of starting on a flood wall for protection of the Taylorsville residents, was bed sieged again by its twin enemies, Salt River and Creek. These streams ironically swelled over their banks, with, as it is hoped, a final of "You can't do that to us." Work on the flood wall was halted and another time of moving began. 42-fo- ot age-ol- Bra-shea- jes-tur- e, GUEST SPEAKER COMING FOR C. E.

Holm New York It takes all kinds (and a whole lot of 'em!) to make the Big Town what it is and here are some statistics as gathered by Louis Sobol, who seems to know: The 8,000,000 people in the city's five boroughs include more Italians than there are in Venice, more Germans than in Kiel, more Irish than in Cork and Limerick combined, more Russians than in Stalingrad, more Jews than in Palestine. . . . It has a waterfront of 578 miles; 1,785 churches, 20,000 eating places, 188 licensed dance halls, 1,200 cabarets and 4,445 theatres, 200 public and private hospitals, and four municipally sponsored colleges; Its 17,000 cops each average 4U arrests a year; 1,900 of its uniformed firemen served in the last World War and 33 were killed in action (while 26 who stayed home were killed fighting fires); it manufactures 90 per cent of the 100,000,000 dresses turned out for America's women yearly; The Travelers Aid Society helps an average of 340 visitors a day who have lost their way, their memories or their money; the city has more summer vacationists than Atlantic City, more winter visitors than Miami Beach and 57 per cent of its residents were born here!
