In fact, it has been estimated that there are between 60 to 7 0 vacant places right in the dis- trict without considering the number of other vacant homes in the city.” FRANKLIN _ TO PRESENT ‘ CHRISTMAS PAGENT (b) Qui Tolis Mrs. Margaret Murphy Credo Hammerel (a) El; In Carnatus Est Mrs. Guy Bryan (1)) Et In Spirium (Duet) Mrs. Edna Curtin, Miss Mary Sc-ahill Offertory Adesta Fedelis D.

ACADEMY ISSUES SCHOOL PAPER A new school paper has made its bow in the Commun- ity “The Weekly Cluarion,\ published by students of Our Lady of Victory Academy “to promote inter-class activities, to make the student body and faculty better acquainted, and to stimulate the school spirit.” Balthasar, John Kiicoyne; Milchior, Robert O’Boyle; Caspar, William Radecki; Mary, Mother of Jesus, Helen Gannon ; Joseph, J ustino Christiano. “The owners of all of these vacant homes have a large in- vestment involved many have mortgages and other indebt- -edness which they must meet and some are actually faced with financial min and the ‘loss of their entire savings if they cannot meet their obliga- tions. The normal course for them to get out of their diffi- culties is to obtain tenants who can pay« rent, which in: turn woiJld..,be used to nay the debts. “If a lame building program should be put through at this time and a number of new homes be erected what chance would our other landowners have of renting their property? Many of them have resided in the city most of their lives, many have been taxpayers for years and we have no wish to see them ruined. That is why we ‘are taking the stand that the project should be delayed until there is in greater require- ment for it.\ MEAD APPOINTED ON NRA SPEAKERS BUREAU Angels, Helen Salones, Mary Kilcoyne, Clara Prior.

Court Order Paves Way V To Regopening of Bank NEW FIRE-MEN AND PATROLMAN SELECTED PLANT GETS ORDER FOR LACKAWANNA RAILS The annual Christmas play given by the children of the St. Hyacinth’s school will be held at Dom Polski, Tuesday evening, December 26, at 8 P. M. The program follows: “No Place In The Inn\ At a. meeting of the Common Council, Monday night, the names of Ted Kacmarek, Stan- ley Zajac, Michael Damstetter and Valentine Bett were ac- cepbed‘ as appointees on the Fire Department, and Felix Smolarek, for the vacancy on_ the Police force. Although the local plant lost out on the order for rails placed by the Pennsylvania road on account of its location, it is favored by the Lackawan- one Railroad with an order for 11,000 tons of 131 pound rails for use on the line between Buffalo and New’ York City. Production will start im—- mediate!) after the first of the yelar, according to plant offic- 1a 3. Early reopening of the American Bank under plans sucgested by the «bank officials, and approved by the State Banking Department. was as- sured through an order issued ‘by Justice Harris in Supreme Court today. ‘With the issuance of this or- der-the approval of the Trem- ury Department is assured as this completes the plan 100 per cent and the bank will be opened «as soon asyadvices are received from Washington. A novel feature of the plan, the organization of a holding company, which bougt the mortgages held by the bank, makes the American bank as~ sets 100 per cent liquid. The plan also included the reorganization with a capital of $lJ0,0'\.0, voluntary cont:'i~ butions of the stockholders and directors. Characters : Mary: Florence Orzechow- ska ' The body went on record as opposing. the program and to enter protest against the proj- ect with the authorities at Washington. Depositors will receive 75 per cent of their deposits as soon as the formal Federal Treasury order is issued, and 25 per cent in certifidntes of beneficial interests to be paid from earnings of the bank and finsured by the government.
