Charles L. Ryder, publisher of both the Delmar and Cobleskill pa- pers, on March 25 sold the rights to title, good will and paid mailing list of the Post, to the publishers of the Enterprise. Mr. Ryder had previously pur- chased the Worcester Times in Ot- sego county from Grover C. Shafer, publisher of the paper for 42 years. The Enterprise will incorporate the Post into its own newspaper, beginning with this week. A fur- ther statement on this subject ap- pears on page 2 of this issue.

Wednesday, April 9, will be the last day for registering, and that night, a league meeting will be held to assign the new boys to teams. This year there are approximately 120 boys in the 8 to 12 age group. This will mean an added burden to the league in handling 20 boys per team, but an earnest effort will be made to take care of all. The schedule for 1958 shows the first game to be played Saturday, April 26, at 2:30 p. m. The usual parade through the streets of Altamont will precede this game. Following are the officers and com- missioners of the league: President, Paul F. Cudney; vice- president, Peter Alland; secretary and treasurer, John Zaremsjd.

The board emphasized the fact that the ruling will not affect any of the town's half-dozen trailer courts, nor does it apply to citizens storing trailers.
