There • was singing by 'the \cborus of the ' * Snfield High school and entertain- /•- ment br Junior high school ( stu-dents was well received. Mi It will be with no intention of showing the slightest irreverence to Armistice day and all that it signifies, that the Board of Selectmen will not suspend its labor on tomorrow. Ijong before there was any visible evidence that the day would develop into a National Holiday, the board made an engagement to perform a very 'Important and exacbing duty on that day. The fact that it has since been designated as a legal holiday places no legal barrier, in the way of going ahead with this engagement— hence- Messrs. Bromage, .Bridge and Smyth of the Board will journey to Hartford, tomorrow and open the bids on the Town of Enfield's offer ,for sale of a bond issue of £350,000, to run for a period of twenty five years. These bids will be opened at the office of the Hart-ford^ iConnecticut Trust Co., at 11 A. M. in the presence of the .members of the Board and the Trust Officers and legal representatives of the Bank. From the inquiries that t have been made both at the Town Building and from the Trust Company Officers it Is evident that the issue will not be lacking In bidders. The steady improvement in the bond market for some time past leads the town officials to > expect that the issue will be sold at par or nearly so. * This would mean that in addition to the funds necessary to take care, of the floating indebtedness, the building of the grade school, and also the $50,000 that is being spent in permanent improvements, . there will be a surplus of approximately $15,000 from the issue, the expending of iwhich no special provision was made at the town meeting, because of the fact that the conditions did not indicate at the time the issue was voted, that the sum now expected ;wo.uld. be realized. The expending of this sur-jalus or its disposition as part of "the sinking fund rests with the board of selectmen. With the expected consummation of the bond issue tomorrow the final steps will be taken, in the placing of the Town's finances on a firm financial basis. All .the short term and demand notes which have been accumulating in the form of annual deficits for several years will be retired and their places taken by the 25 years 5 per cent, bond issue. > To meet this issue when it becomes due 25 years hence, there will be placed annually in the town sinking fund the sum of $10,000 which will not only .take care of the major issue now to be made but the sum of $107,500 in bonds that is already outstanding. The Thompsonville Trust Company is the officially designated custodian of this fund. When the issue proposed tomorrow ia completed the entire indebtedness of the .town of lEnfield will be $457,500, all in the form of bonds and with an adequate sinking fund to provide for their retirement iwhen due. With the town now obligated under the law to lay a tax rate each year sufficient to meat the budget as voted, and the certainty that no department of the town government is .going to spend any more funds than they are provided, the adjustment of ti. town's financial affairs would seem to be as complete as it Is possible to make it. \ THE FIRST OF MANY PROPOSED MEETINGS TO DISCUS CIVIC MATTERS UNDER js^sigaTHE AUSPICES OF THE BOARD OF TRADE HELD IN RECREATION ® ijStffSgpgsBg^JF^wr^v.HALL TUESDAY EVENING. Alfred D. Chandler of Brookline, Mass., addressed a meeting of the citizens of Enfield in Recreation Hall Tuesday evening on the subject of representative Town meetings as applied to town governments. This meeting wag held under the auspices of the Board of Trade, anil was the first of several meetings of this character that the officers of the Board^ proposed to hold during the coming winter for the purpose of discussing the various innovations that have been Introduced into town governments and the management of the smaller municipalities. !Mr. Chandler, who is an Attorney in Boston is very familiar with the phase of the subject discussed Tuesday evening, from the fact that he was one of jthose largely responsible for the adoption of it in Brookline, where is has been in use for .many years, and in sev eral other towns in Massachusetts where It Is of more recent adoption In opening his address he remind-city charter he unhesitatingly condemned as expensive and easily lending itself to extravagance anu dishonesty. The town or city management plan which , is considerable n vogue just now, was not proving itself the success that its sponsors had predicted and was being abandoned by many places that had hurriedly adopted it. The Commission form which antedated the manager plan by a few years had only proved its worth in an emergency such as in. the case . of the Galveston flood and other such catastrophies. As a. permanent form of municipal government it was not proved its desirability. It was he stated after a study of all these forms, and the manner in which they worked out elsewhere that Brookline adopted the "representative town meeting." The method is nothing "more than the present form of New England town government so far as the executive officers of the town are concerned, with the election of representatives from regularly laid out districts to the town meeting. This would ed the audience, which was re- mean a town meeting of perhaps "CONTRIBUTION SUPPER" Tonight in Atethodist Episcopal Church To Raise Money To ' '* Pay Chnrch Debt. A "contribution supper" will be held this evening in the church parlors of the Methodist iBpiscopal Church, followed by an entertainment by the Springfield College Male Quartet and an address by Col. Charles 1L. Young of Springfield. The ladles' aid society of the church will serve ithe supper, while all expense of the entertainment is being borne by the Sunday school The supper has been arranged as a means of raising money toward the debt incurred in the renovation of .the church last year. Rev. John E. Duxbury, pastor, has been in -charge of the general arrangements committee. All those of other churches desiring to attend the entertainment only can do so by contributing any amount which they so desire, as theVe will be no regular admission fee to this part of the evening's program. (All members of a family in which at least one supper ticket amounting to $5.00 was sold will be admitted free to the enter-mentr; Engagement Announced. Mr. and Mrs. Ulric Trudeau wish to announce the engagement of their daughter, Edna Pauline Trudeau; to John Young Dixon, son of Mrs. Clifford Lebeau of Spring Btreet. The marriage to take place on Thanksgiving grettably small, numbering only about a hundred, that it was very natural for a' man from his state to come to Enfield to interest them in town government inasmuch as the territory which comprises this township was originally a part of the state of Massachusetts. After stressing at considerable length the importance of each municipality giving close attention to the management of its affairs so as to do its part in reducing the burden of taxation, the speaker proceeded to analize the various forms of' town and city government that had been evolved in recent years, as a panacea for the civic ills of these communities. The present. form of less than one-third the size of the average Enfield town meeting. It meeting it is insisted, instead ol most of them being disfranchiseu as at the present time. It does not prevent other citizens, it was explained, who are not members o. the town meeting from taking part in the proceedings of the annual or special meeting so far as discussing any of the questions that arise, but with no voting power, and oc cupying a place in tne town meeting apart from that of the regularly elected delegates. This feature it is claimed retains all the traditional democracy of the present town meeting, which is the one feature of our civic life to which as New Ehglanders we would clink to tenaciously. The town meeting functions precisely the same as the present meeting in the matter of making appropriations and providing for improvements in the community. Its improvement over the present method would be it was stated, that more thorough and calmer deliberations would be given the important problems that arise at a TOWIJ meeting. Much of the above mentioned features of the new method was ^^ed'^ th. tSi 1U asked by big advantage over the present method was that it would be an absolutely sure representative body and- more deliberative than the present town meeting. Where the electorate has increased to the size of Enfield, because of lack of hali facilities, but less than one quarter of the electorate is permitted to take part in the town meeting at the present time. (Under the nev method, it is held that, with the entire electorate privileged to take part in the selection of the representatives to the town meeting, all would then be taking part in the ARE ACTIVE AGAIN RECENT RAINS BRING THE VERY NECESSARY "DAMP" THAT MAKES TUB FIRST STiyPS POSSIBLE IN MOVING THE CROP.—"CO-OP."

FINED FOR RECKLESS DRIVING Springfield Man Fined $102.09 In Local Court Last Evening IJy Judge Bushnell.—Other , Charge Nolled. In the town court last evening, Arnold G. Baer, a member of the cigar firm of Baer Bros., of Springfield, paid a fine of $75 and costs, amounting in all to $102.09, changed with reckless driving. The other charge of evading responsibility after an accident was nolled. Baer was represented by Atty. Thomas Stapleton of Springfield entered a plea of guilty for his client, after waiving reading of the complaint. It 1b said that Mr. Baer was driver of a machine, which on the afternoon of October 28 was involved in an accident with the automobile of Rev. John E. Dux-bury of Pearl street, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church. The Baer auto failed to stop after the accident, but in explanation of his nolling the charge of evading responsibility, Prosecutor Bostick told the court that all of the occupants of the Baer machine absolutely deny any knowledge at the time that they had struck any ot°er machine and he did not think the state's witnesses could prove this point beyond a reasonable doubt.

Saturday night, chilly, snappy November weather. Your trip to town completed, who wouldn't stretch out in their easy chair for relaxation and comfort. So thought and so acted Richard Norris, the well known foreman of the Thompsonville Water Co., last Saturday evening. But his comfort was destined to be short lived. Breaking the quietude which generally envelopes Ward Thirteenth at dusk there suddenly broke upon the still night air the frightened— cluck-cluck, cluc-a-clut—cut of alarmed chickens. -'Dick" at the first sound of alarm from his chicken house was on the job but upon reaching the vicinity of the coop he was rudely seized by the intruders, who bore Richard off a captive to his own home, imagine Dick's surprise when the light from home revealed the identity of the culprits—20 fellow employees of the Thompsonville Water Company and the Northern Connecticut Light and Power Company gathered for a surprise party in honor of Mr. Norris' sixty-fifth birthday. It was an enjoyable surprise and after congratulations the men devoted an hour or so to the telling of anecdotes which literally had some of them a rolling on the floor. At ten o'clock they sat down to a sumptuous spread prepared by Mrs. Norris. Mrs. Norris was assisted in serving by her daughter Viola and Miss Irma Grohaurd of Hartford. The twenty two men sure did do justice to Mrs. Norris' cooking and at the conclusion of the dinner, Harry Smith offered a toast to Mr. Norris. Mr. Smith was followed by another employee who in a few well chosen words presented Mr. Norris with a remembrance ol the occasion. The outfit then adjourned to the parlor and perhaps its just as well there are few neighbors around for harmony was not always present in the singing several of 'the men being out of practice. A feature of the after dinner affair was the writing in the bonds of wedlock of Joseph Ashe and Miss Irma Grohaurd. Harry Smith gave the bride away and Bill Gardner was the officiating clergyman. The party broke up at an early hour. Edward Burnham of Burnside was summoned into the town court yesterday on complaint of State Policeman John M. Ellis, on the charges of reckless driving and evading responsibility. Burnham's oar struck Mark Handley, son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark W. Handley as he was walking in the roadway in lower King street Sunday. The boy was not seriously hurt but was badly bruised about the body. The case was continued until next Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock, at Burnham's request, in ordef that BIGELOW-HARTFORD FAIR Opens Saturday Evening in Bigelow Hartford Hall and Will Continue All Next Week.—Beautiful Wilton Rug To Be Given Away. The annual fair of the Bigelow- Hartford Athletic club will open Saturday evening in the club house hall on Main street. From the arrangements for this affair that have been going on for several weeks it is apparently going to be carri' out on a more pretentious scale than that of any of the previous events held by this club. Following the grand opening night on Saturday the fair will skip Mondaj evening, but beginning next Tuesday evening will continue each night for the remainder of tht week. There will be dancing each evening for which music will be furnished by Dave's Jazz Band, led by the popular drummer, Davy Dixon. A handsome French Wilton Rug will be given away on the lasi night, and an opportunity given for door prizes each evening. One of the big attractions of the fail will be a fully equipped midwa? with all th9 attractive features o; these unique afiairs. BAZAAR A SUCCESS "Sunsliine I-jissies" Bible Class of First Presbyterian Church Hold Largely Attended Entei-tainment. The bazaar and entertainment under the auspices of "The Sunshine liassies" 'Bible Class of the First Presbyterian church held in the church last Friday afternoon and evening was very largely attended and was a grand success socially as well as financially. The sale included a -varied assortment of home made food and candy, as well as useful and fancy articles, while a table of Oriental goods proved of particular interest . and was generously patronized. The entertainment in the evening included selections by a male quartet from Springfield College and literary and musical numbers by members of the cfhurch. State Older Boys' Conference The 22nd Annual Connecticut Older Boys' Conference held in New Haven under the auspices of the Y. IM. C. A. and the State Sunday School Association attracted fifty-one delegates from Hartford County. The total number of delegates present was seven hundred and fifty. The Executive Secretary of the Hartford County Y. M C. A. was in charge of the singing at the Conference. Communities In Hartford County sending delegates were: Avon, Canton, Windsor, Windsor Locks. Wapping, South Manchester, New-ington, Southingtou, Kensington, Poquonock, and Plantsville. St. Mary's parish of Hazardville plans a minstrel show for December 8th, at the Institute. George The rains in the valley last week brought the much needed "damp" co the tobacco growers, which they •vere not slow to take advantage of. A considerable portion of the crop «vas taken down in the barns and tripping is going on at a lively pace. Mo6t of the growers would ike to sell in the bundle this year as formerly but owing to market conditions the prospects are not oright for this, and there is a great .ikelihood of more tobacco than ever being sorted this year. As a solution of the many difficulties "Which beset the grower n marketing his crop, interest is steadily growing in new co-operative plan of marketing throughout the valley. 'Hundreds of tobacco growers in the Connecticut valley have applied ..'or membership in tne Connecticut v'alley Tobacco Growers' association, a co-operative organization which packs and markets the tobacco of its members who at present have around 2,000 acres, but it -wag decided at a meeting of the directors held recently, that acceptance of such applications would be postponed for next year's crop as it was not considered fair to the present members in view of the slow demand for tobacco to accept more crops to be sold through the organization. The present tobacco market situation is giving a strong impetus to - O r ganizations because they present a way whereby the grower can through such an organization sell his crop direct to the manufacturer and thus side-step the uncertainties which the packers and dealers are utilizing in quoting prices for this year's crop. .Growers who have heretofore sold to packers and dealers are now informed by their former buyers that losses were suffered froin 20 to 35 .per cent, on some of last years' crop, all of which has not yet been sold and that the loss will have to be made good somehow on the new crop, and further* that the demand for the new crop is very uncertain, so that these two factors taken together, the dealer and .packer .finds himself constrained to offer a very modest price for the new crop. Broadleaf is said to be in very light demand and prices quoted thus far are from 15 to 25 cents a pound whereas most of last year's broadleaf crop in the valley sold for 45 to 55 cents a pound. No broadleaf is being bought or sold at the price quoted thus far. It is stated that most of the good-grade .Havana seed of the new crop of the members of the Conn. Valley Tobacco Growers' association had been sold for prices around $1 a pound, which is about 15 cents a pound less than last year. Broadleaf was not -wanted by the manufacturers, it is said. Members pay 2 per cent, of their crop value to the organization for marketing and maintenance of the organization. ___ ' MRS. MARK BUSHNELL ELECTED PRESIDENT SUCCEEDING MRS. ARTHUR O.

Fire broke out shortly before 11 o'clock Monday morning in the dry goods and furnishing store of flyman .Faiman of Springfield, located in ithe Furey block on Main street, and caused damages estimated at nearly $5000, fully covered by insurance. (Mrs. Faiman was alone in the store when the tire was discovered, her husband being in Springfield. It is believed that a spark from a fire which she had just started in a stove in the rear of the store caused the blaze. The fire spread rapidly through the piles of idry goods upon the shelves and the dense smoke hindered the firemen in their work. Chief William ,J. Hines ordered two lines of hose laid, bu't the firemen were able to extinguish the blaze with chemicals. W. S. Chestnut, proprietor of a newspaper and confectionery store adjoining the iFaiman store, turned" in the alarm 'from box 87, at iMain and Pleasant streets. His store and the tenement on the upper floor of the building were filled with smoke. (The damage to the building itself was trifling, and is covered by insurance. The building is of brick construction and is owned by Mrs. iMinnie !«. (Furey of Enfield street. The annual banquet of the En- Fish and Game Association will be held Thursday evening, November 17th in Recreation Hall. Othote of Springfield will cater. The arrangements for this annual gathering, were placed in the hands of tht executive committee of the Association at the regular fall meeting < the organization which was held last Friday evening. Normar Bartley is chairman of the evening. The yearly reports of thef officers and nurse were listened to with interest. Mrs. Hathaway, the treasurer, reported a balance on hand, Nov. 1, 1920, of $197.29; Collections, from the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co., $440.15; from patients, $202.50, total $642.65; town of Enfield, $600; proceeds of New Year's ball, $205.79; Colony Club's dance, $156; total receipts, $1,S01.73. Paid for salary $1200; rent of supply room, $60; vacation supply, $50; incidentals, $25.25; total disbursements, $1,697.04. Balance on hand, Nov. 1, 1921; $104.69. Miss Elizabeth O'Connor, the visiting nurse, summarized her work for the year as follows: 241 patients were treated and 1946 visits were made. The cases treated were mostly medical. During the fall of .1920 and 1921 a typhoid epidemic broke out. There were 20 operations, mostly minor ones, at which the nurse assisted, and 34 maternity cases, and the nurse was present at nearly all of the deliveries. The nationalities treated were Italian, Polish, Lithuanian, Greek, French, .English and American. In the year's review of the secre-' tary, .Miss Wiesing, appreciative reference was made to the generosity of the town in appropriating $1000 for the sixth time for the support of tho work, to the mutual benefit of the continued affiliation with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, and to the kindness of the agents of this company in giving a ball on New Year's eve and the members of the Colony Club a dance on June 8th for the benefit of the automobile fund. Both of these events were financial and social successes and reflected much credit upon the promoters. The Association took its usual part in assisting the Woman's Club of Enfield in carrying Christmas cheer into many comfortless homes. 26 baskets were distributed under the direction of First Selectman Philip J. Sullivan and the nurse, assisted by the Girl Scouts. Special mention was made of the delightful picnic meeting at the .home of Mrs. Charles D. Bent and to the pleasant arrangement of holding the regular meetings with the members in alphabetical order. Grateful acknowledgement was expressed for the ever-ready spirit on the part of .the public to co-operate with the association and a continuance of this friendly attitude was requested. During the business which followed it was reported that the supply room had been refitted with articles for emergency cases and to loan, and a committee to have charge of the room was appointed, consisting of Miss Mabel O. Whitney, chairman, Mrs. Raymond Epstein and Mrs. Allen JB. Hathaway. It was voted to purchase a sign for the room, as its location was not well known. An extract from a letter, written by a former resident, and read by the treasurer, may be an inspiration to others: "I owed your society a debt for services during my sickness in 1916, for which 1 was unable to pay at that time. I am in a better position now and can afford to pay it. With hearty thanks I enclose a check for $5.00' that may help someone else, as it did me." The election of officers resulted as follows: President, Mrs. Mark W. Bushnell; vice-president, Miss Mabel O. Whitney; secretary, Miss Beriha A. Wiesing; treasurer, Mrs. Allen B. Hathaway; auditor, Mrs. Frederick E. Hunter; directors, Mrs. Clarence E. Tibbetts, Mrs. Tudor Gowdy, Mrs. Martin E. Brodrick and Mrs. Arthur C.
