The proposed State tax on gasoline, if adopted, may be used in large measure to supply school funds if a suggestion made Wednesday at Annapolis to Governor Ritchie by A.S. Cook, State Superintendent of Education, is acted upon.

The slippery condition of the Frederick-Baltimore state road yesterday was blamed for two accidents reported to the office of The Post. One car skidded between New Market and Ridgeville, while the other machine came to grief east of the Jug Bridge.

The joint contract between the Bell Telephone Company of Pennsylvania, the Chesapeake and Potomac Company, of Maryland, and the forestry department of the two States for the equipment and use of Mt. Quirack, near Pen-Mar Park, as an observation forest fire tower and for the connecting of the tower with the two telephone systems mentioned has been signed and an order given to the Waynesboro exchange to proceed at once with the line construction.

After having made himself famous by building his own coffin and lettering his own tombstone, together with making all other necessary arrangements for his funeral and burial, H.S. Thomas of Libertytown gave an oyster roast at his home last night for the Thirteen Club, which was organized by himself and which is composed of thirteen members. Mr. Thomas was born on the thirteenth of the month. Each year since the organization of the club, an oyster supper has been held on Thanksgiving evening for all members.
