BOARD OF TRADE ELECTS DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS. At an enthusiastic meeting of about fifty members of the Board of Trade Monday evening, the following Directors were elected for one year : D. A. Bliss, C. W. Brock, G. C. Carey, H. C-[.Oakes, Ike Wake, P. A. Beach, C. P. Setter, H. F. Facklam, S. B. Rich. m ■- The new Directors met at once and elected the following officers: , / v P. A. Beach, President; H. F. Facklam, Vice President; C. P. Setter, Secretary; J. J. McCarthy, Treasurer. . The Presidtnt then appointed G. C. Carey, A. G. Settee, and D. A. Bliss as a Highway Committee, and it is the inten­ tion of this Committee to do their utmost to get the road from Cattaraugus to Dayton under way this year. Cattaraugus wants new industries. The™1Cattaraugus Wood Products Co. will start; work on their large plant as soon as the snow is off the ground, and it is the hope of* the Board of Trade to secure other manufactories in the not distant future. It is the intention of the Board of Trade to co-operate with the Cattaraugus Realty Company in the building of houses this spring and sjimmer. Houses will be needed, and help will be given those who desire and want it by the Realty Company and'Board of Trade. These two organizations have no selfish motives, unless the building of a larger and more prosperous community can be called such. f Cattaraugus is on ball bearings, and she is moving in the right direction. Watch her grow! pared to hurry out on calls to do plumbing and repair work at short notice. Mr. Straub has bought out the Oakes & Bürger Co. stock of plumbing goods and fixtures knd bids for his shate of the plumbing work formerly* done by Oakes & Burger, who re­ tire from that line of work on account of pressure of business in other departments. Mr. Straub is an experienc­ ed city plumber, and is an ad­ dition to our business commun­ ity.* , VILLAGE ELECTION NOTICE IS HEREBY g$V<yi that the Annual Village Elec- tio’n-of the Village of Cattarau­ gus, N, Y., will be held at Fireman’s Hall jn said Village, Tuesday, March 16th, 1920, and that the Polls will be open at Ojie P.

THE NEW CHURCH BUILDING There are three fundamental features for consideration in reference to the new. church building it is purposed to build (1) The need ; (2) What would meet the need v and (3.) The c o s t . . • > 7 <- .. t r - r • ^ (1) In considering the need, the situation is evideht Th$\progressiveness of a town or City is seen in its Churches Schools, Public utilities, industries and spirit o f its citizenry. • For years the church building now in use has been made-, qifate for the work the modern church is called to do. It ha not fittingly represented the Godward side of the community's life. (2) What would meet the need in such „a community this church is called to serve has had much consideration. The following are some of the conclusions .arrived at: There ought to be an auditorium large enough for regular use and yet not so large but that it will be fairly well filled at regular services The auditorium ought'to Toe so related to the Sabbath school rooms that it 'cari be enlarged on special occasions by opening into it the capacity of the Sabbath school rooms in whole or in part. The auditorium ought to have' placed in it a Pipe organ so that the people of Cattaraugus may have the privilege of music of the pipe-organ order. Many of the young people have grown up without this splendid privilege. The next vital thing needed is arrangement for the work of the Sabath ‘School. Separate rooms/for the classes are ab­ solutely necessary to do good work. I'hefe should also be rooms for the smaller religious meetings. The next vital thing is the arrangement to care fpr the social life of the people the^church is called to serve^__Jt—is very essential that the church should giv&tee'right social life as well as giv^spirituaHnstruction, The new church ought to -be-so'Bfrapged that not only will the minister have his place for preaching, the teachers their places for teaching but also the church in whole or in part and the community as far as it cares to avail itself of it will have a place for social gatherings. It is impossible to make this suitable in all ways without having a special place for it. Then too, there is a deeper., stronger and more spiritual atmosphere about the Church Auditorium if it is used only for spiritual purposes. , There ought to be conveniences for handling at least an audience of 400 or more for an entertainment with platform and dressing-room arrangement. Also facilities for handling large or small companies for dinners or suppers. A reading room and rooms for social pastime should be provided. (3) In cosidering the cost it is essential to plan for. a sub­ stantial and adequate building, not increasing th$ cost by un­ necessary size or equipment, nor for a moment considering leaving out any necessary thing*because of expense; it is well to build f or the years to come as \well as for the present.

Cattaraugus, N-. Y., Mar. I,1 1920. E D N A S * « A MPBELL, ---- • Clerk V TOWN SWEPT^tfY WAVE OF REFORM. A wave of reform has swept over the lawless town. “ Chuck walla” is elected mayor and an­ nounces the town’s need of the sighs of respectability — a church, a sphoolhouse and a jail. This is a great sitüation in “ Thé Parsqn of Panimint,” a Paramount photoplay star­ ring Dustin Farnum, which will be shown at the Palace Theatre tonight and Saturday. “ ChuckwaTla” finds his par­ son in Frisco, in this unusual way. One day a panic-strick­ en workman is pursued and about to be attacked by a mob when “ Chuckwalla” sees an act that thrills his blood. As the terrified runner nears the spot he is brought down by a shower of rocks thrown by his pursuers, but before the pack can reach him the parson, a stalwart young , six -footer, flashes on the scene and stands defiantly over the prostrate form. The ensuing brief but terrific combat was a spectacle “ Chuckwalla” never forgot and his charging rescue lands him hjjihe police station with the young fighter.' Y Panamint likes its young j&rson, but the straight-laced ones'are scandalized when the parson wipes \out “ Bud” Dem- ing’s saloon, dance hall, gamb­ ling joint, by winning the en­ tire establishment at roulette. The story is dramatic and the finish thrilling. Those in attendance from this vicinity at Pomona Grange at Little Valley last Thursday and Friday were Hon. G. A. Matteson, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Eddy, Hon. and Mrs. A. A. Bird, Mr, and Mrs. C. V. Young, Mrs. Mamie and Miss Mildred Saalfeld . Mrs. Pitt Waite. . ... The Philathea Class will hold their regular social and business meeting in the church parlors Tuesday evening, Mar. 9th, at 7 ;30\o’clock. —■ C. E. North and ynfe to Bert L.
