Fire, the cause of which has still not been determined, inflict- ed about $3,500 in damages to a large metal building, and some of Rs concerns, located in the 100 block of East North street, in Charles Town, about 2:20 Wednes day afternoon before firemen could bring the blaze under con- trol. T, he corner of the building, own ed by Peoples Supply of Charles Town and occupied by Wells Ind ustries of Charles Town, was heavily damaged by fire, and there was some damage to the entire b~l'ding by smoke.

He said what might have been not only, a serious major fire, but also a cosily one, was handled quickly and expertly by the firemen and w~thin 40 min- utes after arriving at the scene of ,the blaze they had R not only under comrol, but coml~letely ex- tinguished. As a matter of fact the fare was cor~tralled so wall, and damage 1.imited to such a small area, that it was possible for opera,ions car ried on in the building, to be re- sumed this af~ternoon, DeGrange said. The building, used as a paint shop by Wells Industries, con,tabu ed in addition to some very valu- able equipment, large supplies of chemicals, such as pair~t, primer and totual. And when the fire first broke out there was a high risk that explosions might occurr from the high volatile chemicals stored in the build~ing. DeGrange said three employees were working in the building at the time the fire started in the area of a large tank filled with paint primer and totuol. The tank had just been filled when the men said they heard a loud crack and saw flames shoot into the area around the machines. Two of the men grabbed foam fire extinguishers in the plant and began to spray them on the blaze, while the third hurried to ca~l the fire departmems. By the time firemen arrived on the" scene flames were shooting from a w~ndow and two doors on the South end of the building. But wRhin mintttes after the firemen began to spray foam on the blaze they had brought i~ under con- trol. DeGrange saict that while ~t has been established where~ the fire started, the cause is still under investigation. The fire damage was covered by insurance, he said.

For more than a half cer~tury, some 58 years to be exact, "(Miss Laura" as she was often called, was .most .generous with her time (BY MAX BROWN) The election of tweny-five dir- ectors .to serve for the ensuing year, dine for the 1968 opening of the park and swimming pool and the imposing of an 11 o'clock p. m. curfew, were the prideipal subjects for action as stockhold- ers of the Jeffemon County Mem- orial Park held their annual meet ing Wednesday nigh~ at the Civic Center. Charles F. Reininger, presidem of the Park Board for many years presided and appoir~ted a com- mittee to nominate directors for the year. Those elected to the Board for the 1968 season include, C. F. Reininger, James W. Strider, Tlmrman WhitaCre, Max Brown, Joseph Christian, Allen R.

A. Lowery, Mrs, James Gore, Dean Nichols, Mrs, Edward Gano and Garnett Morison. 1Ki~s Hazel Oden ga~e a detail report of the past year's activRies at the park and the swimmlr~g pool and it was slmwn that be- cause of the very cool and unsea- sonable weather last summer, re- ceipts at the pool showed a con- siderable decrease. Otherwise the park in general enjoyed a success ful year wRh numerous picnics being held on the grounds and the almost round the clock act- ivRies on the two tennis cou~ts and ~t the s~t b~ll diamond. In a ~scussi~n, Mr. Reininger spoke a~o~ the park and R's many advane~ages to the commu- nRy in general and solicted the support of the directors and others to visR the park whenever the opportunity and get a first hand glimpse of just how many youngsters, older people and others visit the park every day. Mr. Reininger said that while much of the funds had become vastly depleted because of the poor year a'~ the park in 1967, it wo~'Id be necessary to plan a fund raising campaign of some nature before the opening of the park on Saturday, June 8th A commRtee to work in respect ,to some action as to raising funds will begin shortly R was ann~unc ed.
