to improve the district. He pledged

obtaining necessary improvements.
Particularly did President Peterson
impress upon him the necessity of
having a sidewalk on Footer Road
from Eighty-second to Ninety -asc­
end streets. A number of accident«
have occurred here because pedes­
trians and machines must use the
narrow dark highway.
Marvin Hedge reported that Lento
probably could obtain two fire depart­
ment call boxes, one at Lento’ school,
if the club insisted upon it and that
the chances also were good for obtain­
ing some of the pres«mt fire ap­
paratus, about to be succeeded by

Chances for more street improve­
ment» were very slight, said Commis­
sioner Barbur, for 1923, but that he
hoped in 1921 more streets would be
pnved in this district. The reason
that there was little chance this year
was because the tax conservation

After the program, which consisted

The first birthday anniversary of
the girls' league of Franklin high
school was celebrated last Wednesday.
One hundred girls were present, and

was cut and passed with due cere­
mony. Several girls found charms in
their piece of cake.

The following new books have been

"Pisces of Hate.*“ by Heywood
Brown. This is a delightful group
of essaya. The title is deceiving, he
doesn’t really hate anything very
much, but there is much good sense
in the comments on institutions,
transitory events and personages.
"The Iron Man in Industry,” by
Arthur Pound. In this book Mr.
Pound gives a calm discussion of the
industrial problem.
“In the Days of Poor Richard,” by
Irving Bachelier. This is a novel of
the founding of the republic—the
great event of our country's history.
“The Ladies,” by E. Barrington, is
a deft combination of imagination and
history, being a vocal interpretation
of charming women each in quaint
phraseology of her time, solving some
mystery which lingers around her
"Briary Bush,” by Floyd Dell, is a
story of modern marriage in which
two rebellious young lovers try to
keep their mutual freedom.
"The Judge,” by Rebecca West, has
as its theme a mother’s claims upon
the affection of her son in rivalry to
young love.
