m r VOL. 107—NO. 45 Architect Goes Over tlie Gl^biwicl At Fire House with Tillage Board Uives Rough Estimate of Cost of Two-Story Structure—No Chance of Work Being Bone This Fair. As long as it remained light Mon­ day evening the members of the vil­ lage board of trustees met at the fire house on Salem street where with Ralph H. Parks, architect, of Glens Falls they inspected the property there, and discussed with him the possibility of constructing a modern fire house on that site. When darkness closed in the board returned to its meeting room at the Rough and Ready engine house and talked o v e r plans for building with Mr. Parks. Using a rule-of- thumb method. Mr. Parks gave the board an estimate of the probable cost of constructing a fire-resistant building to house lire fighting equip­ ment. He said that the cost would be from $20,000 to §25,000 and em­ phasized that this was merely a rough estimate. T h e structure being considered would he about 24 feet wide, which is as wide as could be put on the Salem street lot, and 55 to 60 feet deep. It would be two. stories in height and have space for two fire trucks at the front with an added length on one side for a third truck. Thero would also be a hose tower, apd upstairs would have a meeting room, kitchen and bathroom. The possibility of getting the job underway this year was raised and Mr. Parks said that it would take his firm about two months to prepare plans, after which bids would have to be advertised and let before the ac­ tual construction could begin, so there seemed no likelihood that, a building could be started before win­ ter, There would also be the ques­ tion of providing for the financing of the program, either % using the Mackenzie fund or bonding the vil­ lage, either of which would require a special election. It was suggested that the plans could be prepared this fall, if the \vil­ lage decides to go ahead with the project, and theA the village would be ready to let the contract for construc­ tion next spring. No action was taken a t the meeting and the trustees are mulling over the matter now, ©all for State Police Speeding in the village, especially upper main street, has been on the increase this summer and it was voted by the trustees to ask Troop G of the state police to send someone to Green­ wich to check on the speedsters. With many people driving through the vil­ lage on Hie way to and from the races at Sarafoga, the traffic is very heavy now and many motorists are in a hurry to get in and out of town. Last summer a few visits from state police helped control the speed­ ing in the village for a time, and the trustees are requesting the samp co­ operation this year with the hope of the same results. Cordner Reports To Liberty Post Oil Convention Tells of Legislation Recom­ mended and Programs Pro­ posed by American Legion. Edward Cordner, past commander of Liberty post, American Legion, and delegate from this past to the 31st annual convention of the depart­ ment of New York. American legion, which was held recently in Buffalo, gave a report of the convention a t the meeting of the post held last evening. Speaking of the resolutions ap- proved^MCjj.Ccgatoer referred to one urging* ’c3#Jl service preference for widows of New York servicemen who were killed in action or died of serv­ ice-incurred injury. This resloution asks for an amendment to the state constitution to make this effective. The convention also urged enact­ ment of a federal fair employment practices act and support of the hous­ ing propositions to be submitted to New York voters this fall authorizing issuance of $300 million in bonds for low rent housing. Mr. Cordner spoke of othpr phases of the convention in­ cluding recommendations given to the department by the outgoing com­ mander, concerned mainly with com­ munity service. Among the addresses given at the convention was one bv Past National Commander Edward A. Hayes who urged added financial support for the expansion of the rehabilitation service of the American Legion, and which was heartily endorsed by the dele­ gates. In closing his report and in speaking of the program proposed by Mr. Hayes, ISiT. VorrfnPr sard, don’t know how much more thev wanted to give but this increase will give the American I-egion the reserve strength to protect all veterans in their rights and proves to me that the American Legion is still the great charitable or­ ganization that it always has been and that it is worth working for and thab every unselfish veteran should do the sanre.” Republicans, Democrats Have Internal Trouble In Choosing Candidates Saratoga County Has Splits in Both Parties—Will Be Decided at Primaries, Polio Outbreak In ThisDistrict I s || EighestSinee Schuylerville’s New Fire N e k to Be .Demonstrated In Greenwich on Friday 72 ’ Oakses Reported • in .

Chamberlain’s Office In Glens Falls Robbed The theft of $ 6 ,WO from a double- locked vault in the office of Dennis E. Kelleher, Glens Falls city chamber- lain, is puzzling police in that city. The money, all cash, was taken be* tween the closing of the office Thurs­ day and its opening the next day, and how it was done is not known. The chamberlain’s office is located m the city hall, directly above police headquarters, and a 'burgler alarrn on the doors of \life olfice connected with the police rooms. The vault has two doors which were locked. The theft was discovered by office employes When they opened the safe. There was no sign of foi’ced entry to this room or the vault. This was the second city hall robbery in Glens Falls 'in 18 months. In April IMS $2,400 was taken from the city comptroller’s office and the thieves were never ap­ prehended.

This development came just when it appeared that everything would be unusually peaceful in and between both parties, as tlie Demo­ crats announced 'that they would en­ dorse the regular Republican candi­ dates for ftominatton. The Republican county committee, when ft me>, endorsed John Doyle for surrogate and Carleton Kins for dis­ trict attorney and soon after the Democratic executive committee met and endorsed these two Republicans. This, apparently aroused a Repub­ lican faction, known as the re a] Re­ publicans, and by petition Ehev nom­ inated Sidney W. Hewitt of Stillwater for surrogate and Thomas F. Nolan for district attorney. The Democrats ran into the same trouble witli in their ranks, and some members of this party circulated petitions for John J. O'Malley for surrogate and George E. Toomey for district attorney. Then the Democrats failed to file their petitions endorsing the Repub­ lican candidates. / The primary election will be Sep­ tember 6 , and at that time both par­ ties will select their candidates at the pplh TheripareSow 72 eases of paralysis in the tri-county health dif>r‘ trict, ifcdi^ing ‘ Washington, War*H| andf Saratoga counties, according tj| the report given Monday by D*r’: Burke Diefendorf, district fctaffl healths officer.

Charles H. Tuttle Will Speak at 19th Annual Farm and Garden Day Traditional Show Will Be Held at South Hartford August 18—Various Exhibits Planned. On Thursday, August 18, the out­ door farm and garden day will be held at South Hartford, marking the 19th annual gathering at that village. Sponsored by the tri-county unit of the Woman's National Farm and Gar­ den association, the program, which is being planned, will be similar to those presented in the past. There will be a display of flowers, acres of contour farming, 26 acres strip cropping, 4 farm ponds, 900 lin­ ear feet of closed d r if tag e and 800 of crop rotations, 15 aarfes establish­ ing perennial hay, -3,510 lineal feet of outlets, 10 acres of pasture manage­ ment and four structures. The' county soil conservation dis­ trict has received applications for additional work from Karl White, Ar­ gyle; Alfred Schoen and Mrs. Wil­ liam O. Engle, Cambridge, Joseph Ropitsky, Easton; Hicks brothers, Granville; Lawrence R. Jenk®, H a rt­ ford; Daniel D. Hurd and George D. Nelson Hebron; William B. Watkins, Jackson; G. W. Olsen, Salem, In addition Frank Wright and Jo­ seph Ropitsky of Easton have signed for complete conservation plans. The directors of the district at a re­ cent meeting authorized the moving of the bulldozer to bhe town of Green­ wich to complete work there and then to Jackson. By completing Jill th e ' work in one town before moving the bulldozer from the area, considerable money is saved for the various co- operators in the district, and time has been saved in making surveys and doing the necesary follow-up work. 172 Candidates Have Received Diplomas by Taking Special Tests Only Contest Scheduled is for Democratic Commit* teeman in Town of Hampton. v. ... The primary 'election for the nomi­ nation of candidates by the political parties for election in November will be hqid in four, weeks, on Tuesday, September 6 , and from all appearan­ ces it will be a quiet primary, with only a. token vote out. The reason for the disinterest is that there are no contests and there arc only a state s.enator and three coroners, to nomi­ nate. . t The Democrats will elect county committeemen this .jiear, two from each district, and in Hampton, where there are less than 40 enrolled Demo- crats there is the only contest in the countj?, designating petitions having been filed with the board of elections for two different sets of committee members. Otherwise, all appear^ to be har­ monious in the Democratic as well as the Republican ranks. The Repub­ licans do not ele«„ committeemen this year, as they name them for two years. On the Republican primarv ticket will appear the name of Henry A. Neddo of Whitehall, the endorsed candidate for state senator; and also three men nominated for county cor­ oners, Dr. Charles H. Cole of Cam­ bridge, Dr. Walter S. Bennett of Granville and T)r. Roy E. Borrowman of Fort Edward. Tho Democrats will nominate a state senator and three coroners, but have not filed with the board of elec­ tions, so the Democrats who go to the polls on primary dav will writ*! In their choice of candidates for these offices. They will also name a dele- plants vegetables and home craft,.
