Sheriff Gene Martin, Who has been appointed for the sixth con- secutive year as county chairman of the “fight infantile paralysis” campaign, gratefully accepted the offer of the city basketball league, sponsors of the Globe Trotters’ appearance in Shelton for thel fifth straight year, to stage the' exhibition for the charitable pur- pose. Half the net proceeds of the game will be turned over to the infantile paralysis fund and the Globe Trotters themselves have generously offered to donate 10 per cent of their share of the gate receipts to thesame cause. l l l Game Help Welcomed “Our dances, on which we have depended for the bulk of the in- fantile paralysis funds, have not' been doing too well in the last couple of years," Sheriff Martin said, “so the committee is grate- ful for this new opportunity to raise funds. We will support the game whole heartedly and urge the public to do the same.” Thirteen years of sensational play, fine sportsmanship and a record of having kept every ap— pointment despite bhzzards and at times impaired transportation, has culminated in the Globetrot- ters ascending to the pinnacle of. all cagedom. They won the world’s title in the tournament held in Chicago last March under the auspices of a metropolitan Windy City newspaper. Without a peer in the field in ball-handling, clever all — around play and star-studded personnel,‘ the Globetrotters are now in their fourteenth season, continuing a record that grows in lustre with every game played. All this. despite the fact that they barn-I storm throughout the United‘. States and Canada, playing a different team nightly on oppon-I ent’s courts exclusively, and trav— eling through all sorts of wintry weather to keep every date. . Unmatched Record And yet, in thirteen full sea- sons, they have won 1,868 games and lost 'only 131, a winning per-I centage of .939. Last year their record was 158 victories and only three setbacks, the latter sus- tained at the hands of teams the Globetrotters managed to defeat several times during the course of. the season. The Trotters average over sixl feet in height and are an as-- semblage of the nation’s outstand- ing colored players. No team has been able to duplicate the “sleight-of—hand" tricks they per-, form with a basketball. Last year's championship team has been augmented by the addi- tion 'of several new outstanding performers, giving the club its strongest personnel in history. They’re determined to retain the, world's crown, for one thing, and] it’s going to take a super-super quintet to beat them out of it. i SHERIFF MARTIN NAMED CAMPAIGN HEAD 6TH TIME I Appointment of Sheriff E. F. Martin of Shelton as Mason Coun- ty chairman of the 1941 “Fight Infantile Paralysis” drive was confirmed today by State Chair-I man Emil G. Sick.

In view of those circumstances, the ban on visiting patients at the hospital was lifted today by Miss Zella Deeny, hospital su— perintendent. “In behalf of the hospital staff I wish to express the sincere ap- preciation of the staff and myself for the splendid cooperation the public extended us during the flu epidemic and the emergencies arising from it," Miss Deeny said. Although the flu epidemic seems to be definitely on the decline here, doctors cautioned that peo- ple should continue to exercise all due care as conditions could take a turn for the worse and a re- currence of the trouble brought on.

OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER Ill Best Condition In His— tory; Cash Balance Now $43,320.90 Retiring Mayor Charles C, Cole handed Incoming Mayor Bill Stevenson a shiny new gavel las-t night as retiring and incoming city officials met at a special ses- sion of the city council for the purpose of seating the new muni- cipal heads, but the gavel won’t be as useful as the financial state- ment the retiring mayor left for his successor. Mayor Cole, as a parting ges— Iture to ten years service as coun— cilman and, mayor, presented a financial picture of the city’s con— dition throughout that period which shows annual cash balances in all funds as follows: 1931 ..$15,895.67I 1936 ..$ 7288.72 1 1932 .. 12,285.49 l 1937 5,864.68 1933 .. 13,390.15l1938 .. 4,614.71 1934 .. 8,139.92 1939 .. 20,631.35 1935 .. 5,730.67 1940 .. 43,320.90 The present cash balance rep— resents the strongest position the city has been in financiallv in its history, Mayor Cole pointed out in citing the achievements of the city council and officers in the past biennium. A Real Accomplishment “This council may not be able to point to a great deal in the way of constructive physical pro- gress but it has maneuvered the city back into a strong financial position," Retiring Mayor Cole said in his farewell to the council. “In fact, the cash balance is quite a little better than we anticipated, and in addition this administra- tion is leaving a $50,000 revenue bond issue with the irlcoming council for improvement and ex- tension to the water system.” In accepting the new gavel from the retiring mayor, Incoming May- or Stevenson said, “I feel that the coming administration will face many problems but I also feel that this council will not let dif- ferences of opinion interfere with the progress of the city nor will they carry those differences out of the council chambers. I look for a harmonious administration.” No Appointments Yet The new mayor made no men- tion of his appointments to de- partment offices other than to sav that he is carefully weighing all suggestions offered since his elec- tion and that when he does decide upon the men to fill the offices they will be the best available for the jobs in his Opinion. The three retiring councilmen —Roy Kimbel, with eight years of service behind him; Bernhard VViniecki, with four years; and W. A. VVitsiers, with two years [agreed that their experience on the council had been in complete harmony. ' Retiring Mayor Cole asked City Attorney Charles R. Lewis, who Ihas served 22 years consecutive J1y in that capacity, to say a few i the willingness that you words. Icouncilmen have shown to render l l I 1 with fact that you serve without fi- ‘nancial reward of any kind. Your ions without rancor and without allowing personalities to influence your judgment has been outstand- ing and highly commendable,” the veteran city attorney commented.

Pay Down As a farewell gesture for the biennium, the old city councn mopped up all loose ends dangling from the unfinished business table at a meeting last Thursday eve- ning which was the last official act for four municipal officers. Mayor C, C. Cole presided‘at his last official council sessnon while Councilmen W. A. Witsiers, Bernhard Winiecki and Roy J. Kimbel completed their terms of office. None ran for re—electiun at the last city election. Most important action of the council’s farewell session was sec- ond reading and final passage of Ordinance 325, which sets up new traffic regulations for the City of Shelton and becomes effective starting next Monday. Appointments Approved The council approved Mayor Cole’s appointment of a new civil service commission consisting of Charles E. Runacres, Andrew Hop- land and Grant C. Angle, and of his appointment of Dr. Robert E, Brown to the library board. Mr. Runacres will serve on the civil service board until December 1, 1946, Mr. Hopland until Decem- ber 1, 1944, and Mr. Angle until December 1, 1942. They take the places of M. H. Needham, Charles R. Lewis and Glenn W, Landers, all of whom resigned so that the commission could be fill- ed by men having no connection with the city government. Dr. Brown was appointed to complete the unexpired term of the late Robert C. Angle and will serve until September 1, 1943 on the library board. Treasune-r’s Report Good City Treasurer Ed Faubert made his final report to this coullcil on the state of city finances, all-' nouncing that water collections are exceptionally good, that LID. collections are slow, and that the city’s cash balance is in the best shape in many years for this time otyear. , , . 'City Engineer Burwell. Bantz recommended acceptance by the city‘ of the storm sewer project on Sixth street recently completed by the George Grisdale Construc- tion Company, the council adopt- ing the recommendation and or- dering payment on the project. Supt. E. E. Brewer made his final report of the year on sewer and water conditions, and Police Judge M. C. Zintheo’s report for December was read and filed. Supt. Brewer was authorized to yellow-stripe Bellevue and Ellinor streets on Hillcrest as an aid to traffic in foggy weather.
