Of the 25 additional houses "r,( _ that are being built most of them arc single houses and will not figure much in relieving the situation. Ai ' " - estimate of thd most reliable character made today places the number of houses that are necessary to meet the requirements of the immediate present at 200. It is known that several families,. dospairing of being able to procure homes within a reasonable time have left town. This is said to be especially true of those who moved here from Lowell, Mass., and who are experts' in • the carpet making industry. This is a hardship to the. industry and a detriment to the town. It is obvious that if our town id ..going to reap the full benefit of the : industrial expansion a building movement of a substantial character must be undertaken immediately. . The question seems to be largely one of financing". Many there are who would build at once were the : financial backing available. Mater- > ial is plentiful, and while Hhere has been a slight advance in the market it is still within reason, and is expected to react again in a short time. ; There has been several informal discussions among the men of large affairs in the community regarding the proper manner of meeting this vital situation, but as yet nothing ' : tangible has been evolved. Many -communities faced a similar situation during the war, and solved it in a most practical manner. It "would not require much time or trav- .. el to gain first hand information re-garding this method, with the possible application of it here. Except some such plan is evolved, there does not appear to be any relief in sight. Membership in The Building and Loiya Association has been and will continue to be helpful, but splendid , -as has been the work of this organization it cannot .do it all. The loc- • ' -al bank is quite naturally careful not r to enlarge its activities in "this field 5 beyond what is warranted by the limited character of the local industries. Were the community fortunate enough to have been granted the charter for another bank, which was denied two years ago, it would now be in a position to play a part in the solution of this problem. It is apparent that some of the, home . financing methods that have proved successful elsewhere must be inaugurated here. To neglect this important factor in the community's ; progress at this time would be a ' .gross hindrance to the town's grow- . ±h. Undoubtedly when the actual .situation is fully realized, those who ' have already, talked the matter over informally will not hesitate to make the effort. It obviously cannot wait, the effort must be made immediately if the community is going to derive •any benefit from it. rV-! Board of Trade Comhiittee Outline Arrangements For Trip To Forest Lake Wednesday July 19th. >:S i'r;.' The Outing and Booster Day committee of the Board of Trade held a largely attended meeting last night. Preliminary plans were outlined ani each member present received a list of men to canvass for tickets to the monster Rhode Island clam bake and Field Day to be held at Forest Lake, Palmer, Mass., Wednesday, July 19. The place selected for the outing is an ideal one. Just 26 miles from Thompsonville, an exceptionally fine road absolutely dustless. Forest Lake the body of water which gives the resort its name is a beautifully situated sheet of water nestling among the hills. A shelving sandy beach makes bathing a pleasure, while those who prefer dancing will find one of the finest dance floors in New England. The outing which the Board hopes to malce a regular get-together gathering of every one who belivees in civic pride, promises'to be 1,he starter oi a series of these get-together which are bound to work out for the bettprment of the town. Tickets may be purchased at the local drug stores. Post Office Clerks i; : Are Appointed Postmaster Gourlie Names John J.

BERNARD'S LAWN PARTY f JULY 19TH AND 20TH The ladies of St. Bernard's church, Hazardville will give a lawh party -on the church grounds, Wednesdas' and Thursday evenings, July 19 and &S ' ' 20. . There will be entertainment and -dancing each evening. Several booths 4i? " "wiN be erected for the sale of fruits, [ 'ice cream, soda and home made can- . There Will also be a fish pond as .well as several 6ther novelties. Postmaster William P. Gourlie announced this week that the successful candidates for substitute clerk and substitute carrier in the recent competitive examination held iit the post office were Louis Schoentag and John J. Ferguson. Mr. Schoentag is substitute clerk and Mr. Ferguson is substitute carrier. In the final averages of the recent examination Mr. Ferguson was second and Mr. Schoentag fourth. Both young men entered upon their new positions Monday. While on his first trip Monday to study the parcel post route, Mr. Ferguson met with a serious accident. He was sitting on the side ot Mail Carrier Zephir Boule's car, which was headed north through Enfield street. When the car reached a point near the Brainard Nursery on Enfield street two other cars crowded Mr. Boule's car to the side of the road. Mr. Ferguson seeing thatrhe must ^either jump or crash into a telephone pole, on the side of. the road, which they seemed to be in eminent danger of doing, took the former course and landed among a pile of railroad ties, striking his head and right shoulder. He received a number of severe bruises on the right side of his head, his left shoulder was dislocated and he sustained other bruises about the body. Dr. Thomas G. Alcorn and Dr. M. J. Dowd attended him. The doctors have_ not yet been able to fully determine the seriousness of the injury, but it is hardly likely that anything serious will develop. It will be several days before he will be able to take up his duties again. Mr. Ferguson is" a son of Mr. and Mrs. John J. Ferguson of Windsor street, and is a graduate of the Enfield High —School and Springfield Civil Service school, later attending Holy Cross College, and during the war he entered the U. S.

What is considered by builders as remarkable headway has been made in this building operation in the six weeks that have elapsed since ground was broken. Of the 36 houses that were originally staked out 12N are already enclosed and ready for plastering. While the constructors state that the entire 10 houses will be completed by February 1st, there are those familiar with the situation who are of the opinion that from the splendid headway that has been made so far, the work will be. finished by the first of the year. A noteworthy feature of the work so far has been the excellent delivery made on the material. Practically all the material for the entire construction has been delivered, which is remarkable in this_ day of cronic tardiness on the railroads. In these shipments there was alone, one million feet of lumber. It required 150 cars to make the complete delivery, among which was 30 car loads of stone. This has contributed to a considerable extent to the headway made in the construction, in thai; there have been no delays for material. There are 105 men employed on the job at the present time. With the beginning of the plastering and other interior finish, this number will _ be considerably augmented. William E. Savage, junior member of. the firm of Savage & Sons, is superintendent in charge of the construction. 4 POPULAR TAX COLLECTOR PUT FORTH AS A LIKELY CANDIDATE FOR THE OFFICE OF FIRST SELECTMAN. ^ convent cdent could give the registration number of the machine.

A case in point is their action on the comment in these columns last week regarding the candidacy of the present incumbent of the office, who is known to have decidedly independent, tendencies. Not to be outdone the "Old Guard" puts forth the name of Clark L. Hamilton. It is not the first time Mr. Ham ilton's name has been mentioned for the place. He has pre ferred in the past to continue as- Tax Collector, which place he has filled most acceptably. Despite the fact that his friends are openly mentioning his name in connection with the office of First Selectman, there is no certainty that he can be prevailed to change his mind in regard to his attitude..- towards the place. Should he do so he will make a most formidable candidate, as he is a seasoned campaigner, and has developed a vote getting quality that will mighty getting quality that will make it mighty interesting for his opponents. Lawn Party Opens Saturday Night • In Somersville „A11- arrangements have been completed for the annual lawn party given by the Ladies of All Saints' Church, Somersville, which opens Saturday evening on the church lawn and will be continued Monday and Tuesday evenings of next week.

The contractors, L. E. Locke & Sons of Lowell, Mass.. have practically all their equipment, on the ground ready to begin operation when conditions become favorable. Among the equipment . to be used in excavating for the three new buildings is a large steam shovel, which is expected to arrive today and will immediately be put in commission. r- The temporary offices of the contracting company have been completed, and a part of the executive force has already arrived. The first ground to be broken will be for the Jacquard weave shed, which will be 227 feet long and 11 feet wide. Construction on this mill will be rushed with all possible speed, as the demand for the output of this department is far in excess of what can be supplied from the present number of Jacquard looms in commis sion. This will be followed by the Dye -House extension of 142 feet long and 82 feet wide and the addition to the Worsted mill of two stories 145 feet long and 113 feet wide. All the buildings are expected to ,be completed by January 1st. In most instances the looms and other machinery is already here waiting to be installed when the buildings are complete.

Sullivan celebrated the nuptial mass, using the single ring service. Miss Isabelle Hennessey, church organist, played the wedding march. John McNa-mara was the soloist. ' The bride was attended by Miss Lucille La Salle of Northampton, a sister of the bridegroom and Edward E. Giblin, brothel- of the bride, was best man. Frank L. Giblin and Edmund La Salle ushered. The bride wore a gown of white canton crepe trimmed with Irish point lace, with a fan shaped tulle veil caught with orange blossoms, and she carried a shower bouquet of bride roses. Her bridesmaid wore a gown of honeydew taffeta, with a black picture hat, trimmed with lavender magnolias, and carried a bouquet of Ophelia roses. After the ceremony a wedding breakfast was served in the bride's home to the immediate relatives of the couple. The house was decorated with roses and cut flowers. The bride's gift to her maid was a gold mesh bag and the bridegroom gave his. best man a set of solid gold cu:F links.

While Enfield, to date, is said not to have done as well as the other tobacco towns in the valley, fn the way of joining the new tobacco association, the perfection of the organization within the required time seems certain. Local dealers who are interested in the movement, state that when the final canvas has been made here it will not be very far behind the other towns in its quota of membership. It can hardly be expected to compare T#ith such towns as Glastonbury, which is the banner town in the valley, having a percentage of over 98 per cent signed up. Teams from this and other suc= cessful towns will make a final canvas of the backward towns during the next two weeks to wind up the campaign.

About 250 electors of the district were present. The meeting was called to order by William J. Hines, chairman of the district committee, James T. Murray was selected as chairman and Secretary of the District, John F. Cavanaugh, acted as clerk. Before proceeding with the articles in the warning M. W. Hullivan brought up the question of the charge being made by the district for the services of the fire apparatus at fires occuring in the other fire districts of the town. On# a motion of Mr. Hullivan the motion regarding this charge was recinded and the charge of $25 was discontinued. In connection with the printed report of the district officers, the acceptance of wheh was the.first article in the warning.

Alcorn viewed the body and expressed the opinion that the man had been dead for five hours. He ordered it removed to the undertaking-rooms of J. Francis Browne. John Whalen of Hartford, an umbrella mender, told the authorities that the man was John Clair, who was a frequenter around Front Street, Hartford, where he had seen him early Sunday night. Chief Brown got in communication with the officials of Taunton Sanatarium and learned that a man named John Clair had been sent to that institution for treatment in 1917. At that time a record in the hospital showed that his next of kin was James T. Clair, a brother, of 17 Plymouth street, Quincy; Bernard Clair, also a brother, of 96 School street, New Bedford and Mrs. Daniel Flannigan, a sister of 233 Center street, South Quincy. An undertaker from Quincy, Mass , came to this village Monday evening for the body and the funeral will be held in that place. UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CR'H HOLDS ANNUAL MEETING Reports of officers at the annual meeting of the United Presbyterian Church held last Thursday evening, showed the church to have had one of its most successful years. The receipts for the year amounted to $5,622.10 and expenditures were $5121.81, leaving a balance on hand of $500.29. In addition a total of $6110 was pledged for the new memorial organ fund, most of the money having been received. James C. Eatterson was elected president arid the other officers arc as follows: Secretary, John Pickens; treasurer, Robert Hilditch; standing committee for two years, Ira Corbin, Orrin Beehler, Aubrey Russell and Thomas Deinpsey; ushers, Herbert Clark, George Rinehardt, Alexander Johnston, Jr., Harold Goodwin, Harold Jjamont, Joseph Mayo, Irving Corbin, and Leroy Becker; sexton, Oliver N.

OBSERVANCE OF FEAST MARRED BY HEAVY RAIN The committee in charge of the Italian celebration in observance of the Feast of Calogero were prevented from hiiving the closing exercises Monday evening due ' to the heavy down- pour of rain. -The feature parade on Monday evening was held though greatly, curtailed between showers. The statue of St. Calogero was removed from St. Michael's Chapel and carried on a large floral canopy on the shoulders J of 20 young Italian men through the px-incipal streets of the town. The proeession was led by the Carpet City Band followed by the members of the St. Calogero society and several hundred women and children. The New York band followed in the rear. The fireworks display was set off during the parade, as the large set pieces were becoming soaked with water. Only a few persons happened to be the vicinity to enjoy the daylight display of elaborate pieces. After the parade the New York Band played a few concert selections on the band stand in the north end. ^ . - -. • , ;„v.; dation of the district committee it was voted to appoint a permanent day man at the fire headquarters. M. W. Hullivan inquired as to the matter of Compensation Insurance for the firemen, and after discussion the district committee were instructed to provide for the same is possible. The sum of $10,000 was voted for the maintenance of the department for the coming year, on the recommendation of the District committee from an itemized budget which accompanied the recommendation of the committee. To cover this expenditure a tax of one mill was laid. One of the important acts of the meeting was the acceptance of the provision made in the last act in the warning for a survey of the needs of the district and the providing of the necessai-y means of enlarging its activities. The district committee together with two whom it may select was appointed for this purpose, and this commission is to report the l-csutt of its findings 60 days before the sitting of the .iext general assembly. 'After this action the meeting adjourned. Auditors, John A. Best, Henry Day- ' is; Superintendent of Fire Alarms, John J. Sloane; Sewer Commissioner for three years, Martin E. Brod-ric- k. Under article 5 of tlie warning, Dr. Thomas G. Alcorn introduced a resolution increasing the pay of the oflicers and members of the Fire Department and also that of the Secretary- treasurer of the district. The resolution was favorably discussed by several and unanimously adopted. The following is the new schedule of the annual compensation that the members of the department will receive: Chief $200; Assistant Chief, :mmn MSI v Celebrate Fortieth Wedding Anniversary Over 100 people gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hun-toon, Somersville, Ct., Saturday evening, to help celebrate their fortieth wedding anniversary.
