Berlin News WALTER BROWN MAY NOT SURVIVE FAll Elderly Berlinite Drops Twelve .Feet From Bam Scaflolding INJURIES MAY BE FATAL Much Comment Concerning High j School Tuition Bill Congregational tv Association to Convene in Kensing- ( -ton Sons of Veterans hold Meeting As a result of a fall from a twelve- l foot scaffold, Walter Brown, one of Berlin's best known elderly citizens, today lies at death's door. Mr. Brown, assisted by Charles Miller, was piling away cornstalks in the barn onhis farm on the Lower Lane yest terday afternoon. The team had Just been driven into the stable about three o'clock and Mr. Brown was clearing the scaffold, preparatory to etorlng the stalks. Unaware that lie wa.fl SO fllosA f n the sclera of V10 J shelf, he lost his balance and fell to the floor of the building and struck en. his head. He was immediately .removed to the house, which is occu pied by George Kron and family and Dr. R. M. Griswold was summoned. ' While awaiting the doctor's ar rival everything possible was done for the unfortunate man. Since the accident Mr. Brown has been uncon scious except for a few brief minutes and it is thought the fall will prove fatal. He has had seventeen con vulsions between the time of the ac cident and the morning. On ac count of the seriousness of the injury, it was deemed Inadvisable to remove f liim to his home, so he still lies in. the Kron home. Because of his un conscious state, it was Impossible to Inscertain the extent of his injuries. Miicn sympathy vas expressed about town for the unfortunate man. for it fen rod' that he would not sur vive on account of his age. Mr. Urown is about 70 years old. That Tuition Bill.

Inquiry shows tbat the tuition hil' from the city of New Britain Hk June and , amounting to m..u fr t;-o last school year has not been paid as yet. 'The amount, which pays the uiMon of Berlin cMl'"ren In fe New Britain school, was oted at a own meet- in? b-'t that city ha3 not been reim bursed. . The school bord of the Hfrdv arv Citv, has agreed to wait imil after next Tuesday's meeting !iror the money and thre i much con cern as to. what it will do if the bill lt n"t pid immediately, v':, The s hl boar 3 has received no tice from the state barfl of education L'that th tow- vi'l not ft its ap- rp"nr!riatiori until New imtfin's bi'l is fitled.

The feeling about town this morning is this matter shoull be attended to at once, in order that the town may have the immediate benefit of the state ( appropriation. To Hold Convention Here.

Enjoyable Social. Many of St. Paul's parishioners at tended the social and whist given by the Sacred Heart parish In East Berlin last night. The , hall was crowded and everyone reports a very enjoyable evening. The only feature to mar the pleasure of the Kensing tonites, was the fact that their best whist players failed to capture any prizes when stacked against the stars of the surrounding places. How ever, they feel they will have better luck next time- Mrs. Mary Ryan of Westfield captured the ladies, first prize and Mrs. Adam Kriuth of East Berlin the second. The gentle men's , first prize was awarded to Joseph Donnelly of New Britain and the second to ViV'- Belden of East Berlin. Observe Vcteran'9 Night. The Berlin Sons of Veterans met with Judge George Griswold last night and had as their guests the veterans of the Civil war. The eve ning was observed as "Veterans Night." After the meeting a pleasing program was carried out. Ward H- J Griswold, a verteran, gave personal reminiscences of the battle of Five Points and the surrender of Lee at Appotomax. William H. Gibney re cited "Barbara Freitchie" in a pleas ing manner. Vocal and instrumen tal selections were rendered during ! the evening by the members. At the I conclusion of the program a social hour followed during which refresh- j ments were served. , ; The next meeting will be held on December 9 and it was decided to have it an open meeting. It will probably be held at the Grange hall. ; Drum Corps Busy. St. Paul's drum corps held a rehear sal last night and practised selections . which it will render tonight when tt ; will play at the opening of the T. A. B. fair in New Britain, f The corps has received many invitations to compete j in different places around the state. 1 It has decided to accept the invitation to compete in the national convention which is to be held in New Haven on November 20. The corps will make the trip in touring cars. Clarence Walker, the major, who is at present champion baton swinger of the United States, will compete in that event. Invitations were also re ceived from Springfield, Windsor Locks and Naugatuck. It is probable that the organization will play in Springfield on November 27. Kensington, M. E. Church. The attendance at the "Win My Chum" exercises which are being held at the church this week, last night was the largest meeting of the week. W. A. Moore, Wesleyan 1918, and L. B. Fuller, Wesleyan 1919, were the spakers and their remarks were re ceived with much enthusiasm. The banner attendance is expected tozUght, which is the closing evening, for F. E. Stevens, Wesleyan 1917, boxing in structor at the university and the New Britain Y. M. C. A., is scheduled to speak. Mr. Stevens spoke here last spring and created a very favorable Impression.

The Berlin Construction company's bowling team will engage the team of the American Paper Goods company in combat tonight on the Aetna alleys in New Britain. So certain are the members of the bridge team of vic tory, that they issue a challenge to any factory team and would be ex tremely pleased to hear from the New Britain Herald and the East Berlin bowling teams. The lineup for tonight follows: H. Rawlings, L. Warner, manager; B. Moore, F. Schroedel, W. McGivney and T. Fransen. To Manage Two Plants. Major Walter G. Penfield of East Berlin has accepted a position as manager of the Remington Arms and Ammunition company and the Union Metallic company plants in Bridgeport. Regarding the appoint ment the following dispatch has been received from Bridgeport: "In tho appointment of Major Walter G. Pen field, U. S. A. retired, to the position of general works manager of the Remington Arms and Ammunition Company and the Union Metallic Cart ridge plant of this city the dual man agement policy under which these concerns have been conducted, al though owned and, controlled by the same people, is eliminated. "Major Penfield, under whose guid ance the plant of the Remington Arms & Ammunition Company has expand ed greatly, will assume charge of both plants immediately. At the arms plant his former duties will be undertaken by Captain C. C. Shepherd, U. S. A., retired,, formerly connected with the United States Arsenal at Springfield, Mass. Major W. A. Phillips, U. S. A., retired, who became works manager of the Union Metallic Cartridge plant when Frank O. Hoagland resigned a few weeks ago, will continue in that position." To Attend Game. Among those present at the Yale Bowl in New Haven tomorrow after noon when the Bulldog will try to twist the Tiger's tall will be the fol lowing local people: J. J. Fitzim mons, William Norton, Edward Mi chaels, R. B. Murray, Harold Clark, John A. Moore, Patsy Buckley, Thomas Malarney, Joseph Holt, Al- Democrats Believe G. O. p. Leaders Have Carter Slated for Senatorial Honors, Wheeler for Representative Local 3Ian Weds in New Haven. While the plans are said to be still in embryonic state, there has been a persistent report in circulation for some time that an effort will be made to have a town court established in. Plainville, and the representative from this place will probably be asked to introduce a bill eliminating justices and grand jurors, substituting a judge and public prosecutor for them. Al though no information regarding their intentions has been given out official ly, rumor has it that the town court idea has been taken up by republican leaders and if a G. O. P. representa tive Is named by the voters, the proposition will be put before the legislature. Although there might be some on- position to the plan, because of the probable selections for court officials the idea itself is generally regarded us a big improvement over the system now in vogue. Justice , courts have never given anything like satisfaction In Plainville. It is the concensus of opinion that the town has outgrown them. There Is trouble almost con tinually between the officers and the Court officials over the manner in which cases are handled and the ar rangement is anything but satisfac tory. When a justice does not dis pose of a case in a manner pleasing to the constable making the arrest, tho policeman will seek another jus tice when he makes his next arrest. At least that has been done so often that it is recognized as the rule and court sessions seem to be regarded as farcical meetings. A travesty on jus tice is the way the disposition of cases has been termed frequently. With the appointment of a judge who would not be dependent on the votes of the citizens for his position, nud ,a prosecutor serving under similar conditions, it is holjoved that there would be improved mnrt con ditions and a more satisfactory inlor- prestation of the laws. While the republicans themsrl - have said nothing about it, democrat eeem to believe that the plan ha,s ; political aspect that does not satisfy They declare that even at this early date the G. O. P. slate is prartimi'y r.iade up and unless the plans m's enrry the personnel of the court au thorities has already been fixed by 1h, p.vers that be. The democrats expert that an offor! will be made to have Rdward T. Car ter nominated for senator from the fifth district next year, Frank T. Wheeler making the run for represen tative. Plainville is really entitled to Ihe senatorship and the belief is held that the town may be recognized by the 1916 convention. Should Carter and Wheeler get to the general as sembly, the democrats declare A. H. 'Condell would be the choice for judge, providing the town court plan re ceived the sanction of the legislature. In that event the prosecutor might bert DeMars, William Sills, and Wil riam Copeland. Briefs. The condition of Mrs. H. H. Spoon er is improved today.

S. Gwillim, who usually appears lor the state in his capacity as grand juror, when cases are tried before Jus i ice Condell. With a certain element this com bination as court officials has not been popular. In other quarters of course the sacrifices they have made to attend to the duties of the office have been recognized and due credit given. They have given up much of their time to the duties of their re spective offices and few suspect that in accepting the places they had any motive except that which concerns the town's good. While there might be some op position to a change, the majority of the voters doubtless concede the ad vantages of a town court over the justice system and if the matter is brought up they will undoubtedly favor it.

The attendance at the first sessions held was so small that it seemed hardly worth while to have two teachers give up their time to the classes This week there has been a good gain in the registration. It is thought that the prospective pupils held off at the beginning owing to the belief that they would have to pay tuition. The expense feature seemed to make them lose some of their enthusiasm. The school board did not Intend to make contributions towards the ex pense compulsory but expressed a willingness to accept voluntary dona tions from those who were willing to do their share towards paying the bills. Potato Growers Happy. Local farmers, who have given up much of their land to the cultiva tion of potatoes, report a most pro fitable season. Throughout New Eng land there was but a small crop of the tubers this year and as a result po tatoes sold for big prices. ' Joseph A. Fagan and Selectman W. J. Johnson are anions: the notato growers in this section having luck with their crops this year. Their farms in the Scott's Swamp district yielded heavily and during the past few weeks they have been busy ship ping to buyers. Demands on them have been heavy and with other farmers they have been having no trouble disposing of their crops. Wholesale prices have averaged more than Jl a bushel since the pota to harvest was started and the grow ers made & substantial profit for labors. T Editor To Speak. Editor John J.
