Week of Nov. 4, 1957
The Sunday movie referendum was defeated in Waynesboro (Pa.) Tuesday. The issue lost by a margin of 210 votes. The vote was 1,220 in favor of Sunday movies and 1,430 against.
The issue cannot be put to voters again until 1959, two years from now.
While Waynesboro and five other areas in Pennsylvania turned down Sunday movies, the voters of 10 other Pennsylvania municipalities voted for them.
The first switchboard of its type in Maryland has been installed at Betty Winn, Inc. The switchboard is designed specifically for telephone answering bureaus and physicians' and surgeons' exchanges. It is a two-position board, which replaces an old single position board.
The business at which the Chesapeake and Potomac Company of Maryland installed the board this week is operated 24 hours daily, 365 days per year. Answering calls for numerous doctors and business firms in Hagerstown and vicinity, the Betty Winn, Inc. business can now work two operators at a time during the peak load periods, thanks to the new switchboard.
