A report' on' the proposed develop ment of New Britain's . water supply lias beenfilett -with the board of char ity commissioners by Engineer Allen Il&zen, who was engaged by thecity to map out the work. Copies are be ing; printed and until they are conn pleted the board will give out no in formation concerning: the project other than a. few statements to the effect that it will probably not -coat more than $5,000,000: will have pro vision for nitration: recommends the construction of a new reservoir a l Hart Hill?: approves the idea, of raising- the dam at Shuttle Meadow to a height of 50 feet of good substantial materials; discusses' the possibilities j of a dam at Burlingrton, and provides for the spreading: of payment over a period of years. The matter was before the council in 1015 and again in 1917. Last year the board wished to go ahead with the work, but authority was withheld. Engineer Hazen was consulted and his report is the result. The raising of Shuttle Meadow dam would probably cost $1,300,000 and would take care of 150,000 inhab itants the estimated size of the city in 1950. It is expected that tbroug-h a reservoir at Hart's Mills, north of Burlington, about 300.000,000 gallons of water could be stored. At Burling ton it "lynot thought that the nature of the soil would permit of the safe construction of a mammoth dam. A small dam is proposed, it has been in timated.

Xew Haven, Feb. 24. Associations and individuals, seeking to enlist the government in aid of their activities, were warned last night by Vice-President Marshall, speaking before the Chamber of Commerce here, that they should take care not to claim privileges which would create griev ances for others. "The war disposed of the hyphenat ed German-American at an awful price," Mr. Marshall said. "Is Amer ica, now to be rehabilitated by a new brand of hyphenated Americans? Is the rehabilitation to be turned over to Xew England Jnanufactiirer? Man ufacturer -Americans, agricultural Americans, federation of labor-Americans. Protestant-Americans or Catholic-Americans? "Present your claims to congress solely from the standpoint of an Am erican who. is interested in the gen eral welfare of the country.' Let nothing- in the way of personal interests, private advantage or class hatred euc .ceed in pulling you down from, the Sugh position of an American. You may "be a manufacturer, but thaf-title is subordinate1 to that of an American. You -may be a labor union man, but you are an American first." Discussing intolerance. Mr. Mar-' shall declared: "One of the manifes tations of paranoia is a fixed opinion that the victim himself is right and that everybody not agreeing with him is hjs personal "enemy, seeking to in jure him. Paranoia may be caused by shell shock. flare ' the thunder ings of the cannon in Europe rever berated across the . Atlantic and caused many men in America, to suf fer shellshock and paranoia?
