J Preceding the meeting, a dinner was given at tha Burritt Wstel. at .Am h nmceri of the post, com mittee chairmen and tha visiting state officers, including Department Commander Beaton. Announcement was made of an executive committee meeting to Da held Monday night. The report of Commander Avery was aa follows: "To the offlcera and members of Eddy-Glover Post, No. . Inc., Amer ican Legion. I have the honor to present to you, this report as your commander for the past twelve months. . . "It does not seem to me that as I report to you this evening, twelve months have elapsed aince you elected me to serve as your com mander, but as we look aver the record of activities and accomplish ments, we may well sit back and wonder how we crowded so much . into a single year. Budget and Finance When you elected me to thia of flee, I promised that the Peat would operate its financea on a budget plan. This has been done and we have been able to work within our budget with the exception 'of a very few items. Past Commander E. E- Ogren drew up the budget and has had the operation of it In hand. At the . . A,,r fininrM are In a healthier condition than they have been for some time past. You will get alt the details from the treas urer's report. However, it seems pru dent at this time to mention that debt of about 1650.00 (six hundred and fifty dollars) left to this ad ministration has been reduced to about 1110,000 (one hundred and fifty dollars). The handling of funds for a post of this size is no small task and much crerit ia due to Past Com mander Ed Ogren for hi faithful services as Post Treasurer and I wish to extend my personal thanks to him at this time. Hon mi committee The House Committee originally consisted of Carl Kalen, Roy Ens mtnger and George Kinkade, but when they stopped building houses In New Britain, Kalen left us and the duties have been ably taken care of by Comrades Ensmlnger and Kinkade. My thanks go out to them for their untiring services. 'Boost and Poll" "Our monthly paper has been very valuable as a meeting notice and for keeping Post activities be fore all of the Post members. I have tried to interest new people In its management, but tha whole job haa generally fallen to Harry Jack son who 'haa turned in his usual good work along with some of his other numerous duties. "I would like to recommend that another attempt be made to slightly enlarge the paper with the addition of a few more ad so that the pub lication may pay the Port a profit. This, I think, is possible. By-Law Revision "One of my first official sets after being elected was to appoint a committee to revise the by-law and to make some changes for the good of tha Post. "This committee consisted of H. C. Jacksn, A. H. Petts and E. E. Ogren. "Their recommendations have been submitted and are now in your hands for final approval. Membership "In U2T. we had a paid up mem bership of 664. Today, we have in creased that number to TOt. Les Goff was chairman of our ltlt membership campaign and deserves credit for many of its accomplish ments. However, no membership re port would bo complete without tha names of Orrln Curtis, Fred Hoff man. Dava Ogren. Manville Johnson. Art Petts. and many others. Art Petts, while he does not admit it. has been the actual power behind the throne aa far as membership has been concern -d and my personal thanks go out to Art and his host of membership hounds who have placed this Post on a little pedestal af Its own wherever membership la concerned. "Waterbury had visions of licking us and did well, but you can't keep a good man down and when our good men went to work, it was all over but the shouting. "We have started an innovation In member-getting for lit and at thia time, the membership cards are beginning to roll into state head quarters In goodly numbers so that when the state convention is held In Hartford next year. I think I am safe In saying that New Britain's membership will be measured ta fans; Bgarea laatead of tha three as baa vaaa thai ease m tha Mat. "Our Factory Night prsgswms war vary successful la bringing ap the nemberehlp and I weaM strong ly recommend that this method, or some similar method ha followed la building up the lit membership. "Oar Mate Aid committee has been very active, as yea have aeea by their detailed report. Thia com mittee has. without deobt, had the hardest job of gay. Their willing aeennee of time and regular at teeaaaee at meetings, which were long and tiresome, ta doe my sincer est commendation. I wish to thank George Moiander. Harry leaner. Charlie Harden. Mil Kelly aad One caneon for tha splendid ce-epe tion which they hare given to : and to the Post aa members of thia committee. Boy's pjssh Hhall "Our Boy's Basketball team did themselves proud and although they did not win the championship as they have in former years, they ex entitled to a great amount of credit. Howard Timbrel) and Larry Man ran spent many long hours with these boys and are entitled to com mendation tor It Thanks are here by given to Tim my and Larry. Boy's Camp "Our boy's camp waa again a big feature In the Welfare program. All the little details have been heard In the report of the Camp Chairman. It would be Impossible to thank every one Individually who had a share In making thia year's camp a success. However, the outstanding workers were Mau rice Pease, Fred Ensworth. Frank Bullock. Carl Kalen, Marty Hor wits, Carl Bengston, Ray Leonard and many others, and my thanks go out to them all. Boy Smuts - "Our Boy Scout Troop has Im proved until they have reached the mark of being tha second best in the city, which ia a' worthy accom plishment for a troop as young. I don't believe there is a more en thusiastic or a noisier bunch in the United States than our own Troop 7. Durweod Boehm and Everett Turn er are responsible for Its accomp lishments and I wish to thank them for their long hours of careful, painstaking work. Christmas Boxes "At Christmas time the Post sup piled funds for sending Christmas boxes to all men from the city who are in hospitals. The work' of pre paring the boxes was taken care of by our Ladies' Auxiliary and the Home Service Bureau. Sick Visiting "During the past year. I have tried to brighten the burdensome hours of all members who have been sick or Injured and although I am sure there are some who were not reached. I have either taken or sent cigarettes or flower to all I have had knowledge of. "I want to thank Miss Grace gtowell for assisting me in this work during the early part of the year. Military Funerals 'The Post has been called upon from time to time to assist In ar ranging military funerals. In fact. w attended to six during one eight- day period. At en time, w had twenty sailors up from the Sub Base to carry out a Navy funeral. It has become harder and harder to make arrangements of this kind and I be- seech all of you not to offer the services of the Legion In matters of this kind without first consulting the commander who has to do the arranging. The Legion is willing to line up worn ei mis Kind when called upon to do so, but it Is so hard to do a real good job that it ia best to let people k n to do it rather than to volunteer aad then slip up. I want to thank Capt. Squires of Co. I for his co-operation la furnish ing firing squads and all of the members who have faithfully an swered the call when asked to do so, especially Fred Tyler and Jack Preston. Santo Motta'a Trunk Another outstanding service which was rendered during the past year was the sending of a deceased comrade's trunk to his home in Italy. "The trunk was sent through to Italy free of charge through the efforts of Art Petts snd some of his very good friends who have all been written a letter of thanks for their co-operation. War Bisk Insurance and Adjusted Compensation 'Through the assistance of the Home Service Bureau, many men have been aided In taking out now or additional War Risk Insursnce and have also been aided in secur ing adjusted compensation certifi cates. Wayfarers At the beginning of the year, we took care of several men who were down on their luck and needed a place to sleep. These men were put up over night and given a break fast. Several of these fellows were never heard from again but one up right fellow sent back his check to reimburse u for the money we spent on him. The number were rather thick at first, but we finally refused ane or two and the number Immediately dropped off and with the betterment of industrial condi tions we have had little or none of this kind of relief to administer. Graves KegtatraUoa "Early in the year. Bill Kelly asked to be relieved of the duty of chairman of this committee which he had held for several years. Fred Tyler consented to take over the duties and haa rendered valuable service In this capacity. This com mittee new haa a location for every veteran's grave In New Britain and they take cart of decorating the graves on Memorial Day. The four Freds Tyler, Hoffman, Ensworth and Clock are active on this com mittee and a great amount of credit i -due them, aa is slso due all the ether members of this large and ef ficient committee. "Grave stones have been placed in all cases where families have re quested It and more will be done as the families can be found. "I want to recommend that this committee be kept in office so that the good work can go on. "Eddie Ogren is chairman of a committee to co-operate with the school authorities in supplying med als for scholarship, etc.. In the Junior High schools. "Thia program Is being followed eat along tha lines laid out by the - . v - . .... New tnd Retiring Pixt Cgraslsrs MAURICE H. PEASE. National Organization and will be put into effect at the mid-year grad uation this year. Poppy Sale "All of the above and other wel fare work is being carried out through our annual Poppy sale, which this year netted the Post well over 11,200. The Poppy committee under the very able leadership of comrade Israel Nair, dtd a very no ble job and If the weather man had been good to us, the sale would have set up a record which would have been hard to beat. As It was, all previous records were shattered and the committee chairman and members both are worthy of the highest commendation. Other Activities "During the year, the Post has held two dances at the Paragon Inn, each netting a reasonable sum of money. Affairs of this kind should be better patronized and could be as the Post fares very well in the percentage of receipts. "Our show which was held last December was not the success which it has formerly been, but nevertheless, the amount of money raised was in excess of $500.00 (five hundred dollars) which sum came in handy in carrying on the Post af fairs during the year. "The show committee turned in a lot of hard wrk and the fact that more money was not made was no fault of theirs. Harry Ginsburg Is entitled to thanks for his hard work along this line. "Overshadowing all of our other activities and the most important event of the season in New Britain was the lecture delivered by Com mander Richard E. Byrd on Sun day, February Srd, at the Strand theater. "Nothing that the Legion has of fered the people of New Britain in the way of entertainment ha been a well received a Commander Byrd. I want to (hank "Dune" Shaw and his committee for the efficient handling of thia affair. "At the convention in Middle- town, we were awarded a cup and two citation. We had the largest delegation there, both during the sessions and in the parade. Orrin Curtis is due credit for getting a parade turn-out of nearly 300 for the convention. Howard Timbrell was elected a delegate to the Na tional Convention from this district. "At county meetings, Eddy-Glov. er Post has always been represented by the largest delegation with one exception. Your commander has at tended all of these meetings except the one which was held on the day of the Memorial dedication. "On March 22nd, we visited the Bristol Post meeting and we took so many comrades over.there that the Bristol bunch couldn't be found in their own hall. "On Sunday, September 9th, a very enjoyable outing was held at the Boy' Camp and through the leadership of H. C. Jackson about $20 was made for the camp treas ury. This affair -was attended by about 150 people. And although the Navy poured salt water all over the Army in the ball game, everybody had a good time and voted It the best jarty ever. This should turely be an annual affair. "W took part in the Home Pro gress Exposition at the Stanley Arena and our display caused much favorable comment. "When the campaign for better music in New Britain was started, we were Invited to join in with the other prganlxations. "Our team took part In the Coun ty Bowling League and the players had a good time. I never heard whether they won any games or not, but as this i not a bowling post we probably didn't. "We lent our support to the Lion's Frolic and sold many ticket to the affair which is run for the benefit of orphan asylums In the city. "Harry Jackson has, as usual, been very active in State Legion ac tivities, as ha 1 also Howard Tim brell and Eddie Ogren. It has al ways been my contention that, al though it is an honor to the Post to have some of its men hold higher offices, yet the services of these men become, in a certain measure, lost to the Post. I am glad, there tore that more of our men have rot been chosen for these higher places and we have been able to get a full measure of their services here. Right now, however, let me state that Harry Jackson, although he has hi. finger in various pies throughout the state, also has his heart and his soul in Eddy-Glover Post and my most hearty thanks go out to him for all of the advice, as sistance and work that be has given me this year. "We were at last successful in ob taining a War Trophy for New Brit ain and today we are proud , to point to our gun as the largest, most ugly looking German war gun ia the state. . "On November eth. election re turns were received at the Post rooms and we are deeply Indebted to Frank Bullock and his committee tor their well-directed arrangements. ' 'The Post has taken a very active part In the arranging and carrying out of vartou patriotic evercises in the city during the past year. 'On Christmas Day, about thirty Legionnaire met at the room and ... , NATHAN C. AVERT. marched to the Court of Honor where wreaths were placed and a short service held. "On Memorial Day the entire ar rangements in the city were-carried out by a committee composed most ly of Legionnaires. Eddy-Glover Post turned out over 200 men in the par ade to do homage to their departed comrades. The turnout on Memorial Day caused very much favorable comment among local people and went a long way toward cementing the Legion firmly in the heart of the people of our city. "On Flag Day, a ' delegation at tended the exercises held at the Elk's hall. Memorial Dedication At the time of the Memorial dedi cation, the member of Eddy-Glover Post rose to their greatest heights in the matter of efficiency, service and loyalty. In the face of political strife and petty personal feelings of our city government, the Legion finally gained control of the parade committee and the results spoke for themselves. The parade was the largest ever held in New Britain and moved m-ith a clock-like pre cision due to the great efforts of Curt Shelden, Eddie Ogren and the rest of their committee. The only accident during the whole day waa something that can better be told by Harry Jackson than I. "The Post turned out a delegation of about 600 led by the new drum corps, which made a hit all along the line. Armistice Day "On Armistice Day, the Post spon sored a large public meeting at the Stanley Arena. On 8unday evening, the minister of the city, the Wen nerberg chorus and our band, play ed an important part and en Sun day afternoon a large delegation took part in the dedication parade In Wert Haven. "Monday at II o'clock, the Post marched to the Memorial and laid a wreath there with appropriate ex ercises. Monday afternoon w left open o that members might attend any of the various celebrations throughout the state. "It is my recommendation that plans be at once formulated for a county celebration on Armistice Day and that the county organization plan this ovservance so that it will take place In rotation in the various cities and town of the county. "During the year our Post has been the recipient of various cita tions and honors, the most impor tant of which was the citation from Nitlgil Headquarters for having at tained a rating of 940 points out of a .possible 1,000 in efficiency for 1927. This year we will rank 955 points and unless somebody picks up a few they will have to go some to stop us from getting another cita tion for 1928. "We received a cup and two cita tion from the state convention as well as a citation for having reached our membership quota. "Taken by and large, the Eddy Glover Post has much to be proud of for its achievements during the past year, especially the Drum Corps. This outfit which has been the dream of a few of its members since about one year ago. is now a flaming reality thanks to the ef forts of a committee composed of Dave Ogren, Roy Ensmlnger, Walt Mllkey and Howard Timbrell. These men have organized the corps. equipped them and trained them to the extent that we now have a corps which outshines anything In the state and which is yours today, comrades, without one cent of debt and with money in the bank. "For accomplishments such ss this we can feel justly proud, com rades and I assure you that I have been proud to aot as your leader during a year in which so much was done. However, no man could have arranged all of this by himself and I want to again thank you all for the help you have given me. I could not nam all the helper the list is too long but anyone would have a hard time running thi Post without Jackson, Petts, Ogren. Pease, Leonard, Bengston. and a few other, so let me say thank you to everybody so that I can include them all. "My recommendations are few. "Step should be taken a soon as possible to obtain a hall space so that dances, meetings and social af fair may be carried out. and some method should be established im mediately to send the drum corps to Louisville. "And now, my comrade. I leave you a your commander after four years of active service in offices of the Post and I ask your leave to take a rest of about one year during which time I hope to become ac quainted with my family and return later to take up whatever activities you may need me in. "Reapectlvely ubmitted. "N. C. AVERY." Reports On Boys' Camp Reports on the boya' camp-were made by Maurice H. Pease, chair man of the committee, and Fred J- C. Ensworth. secretary treasurer. Mr. Pease's report follows: 'The Eddy-Glover Beys camp completed Its second season on Augusi tO. 1929. The camp was operated for eight week and dur ing this period some TS hoy were cared for in groups of It. The usual , parted af stay waa two weeks. "You are all no doubt familiar with the excellent location of this camp at Burlington and with the equipment of the camp, which is ia line with the best modern practical Thia year a large mesa hall wan built It is a structure 20 feet x 10 feet built in sections, bolted together so it can be readily moved if it be. comes necessary. Thia provides, not only a mess hall but also a gather, ing place for rainy day where the boy can read, play game or listen to tha radio. As in the case of all our previous construction, the entire hall was built by willing Legion, naires. "William A. Harnm waa again the director and Everett Turner the chef. 'The season, w believe haa been a successful ane. The boy have been benefited physically and the environment and direction have been conducive to a healthy frame of mind, and favorable to the develop, ment of the right sort of character. It was necessary to exclude many deserving boys en account of our inadequate accommodations. The selection of boy was mad with greater care than last year. The first group was selected from eur Junior Achievement club, the second from our Boy Scout troop, care being taken to exclude any boy who could go to the regular Scout camp. The third group was selected for us by Miss Cara Beal. and the fourth was composed mostly of boy recommended by Legionnaire.

Our 50 blanket were used last yesr by the Chil. dren's Home and will be again thi winter. A welfare service worthy of mention- "The present site can probably be used next summer, and during the year to follow It is possible that sufficient water will flow into the stream below the point of diversion by the City of New Britain so that the swimming pool can be kept filled. In this case it will net be nec essary to abandon thi camp site. "W have the following recom mendations to make for the coming year: "1st. That the size of the camp be increased by one bunk house. "2nd. That the camp be opened by an advance guard one or more days before the arrival of the first regular group. The advance guard to consist of the director, the chef and three or four boy who have attended previous camps. ' "3rd. That provision be made to keep surface water out of the spring. "4th. That a fly-tight lantern be provided. "5th. That a covered slop pool be provided. "The secretary-treasurer will re port to you relative to the finances of the camp and relative to the con tributions other than money." Mr. Ensworth' report wa a fol lows: "A secretary since the organiza tion of our Boy's camp, I sincerely hope that the port membership ap preciate the service of Legionnaire Whitman, Power and Bullock who planned, laid out and supervised the construction of your camp during the past two year: and also the services of the various groups of men, too numerous to mention individually, who so willingly went to the camp night after night and aided in the construction of the various build ings, from digging post holes, sawing hundred of two by four, four by fours, etc., to driving nails and even getting covered with tar. Tour camp ha been constructed without one dollar expended for labor. All ma terials were purchased at very low est prices and many times extra dis counts were granted because of the program. "Food and supplies were alio pur chased In moat case through local wholesale firm. It might be of In terest to know that among other thing, over eleven hundred quart of mux were consumed. "Complete and thorough examina tion were given each boy before go ing to camp and we are very grateful to Doctor Grant, Zwick and Aaronson for giving their services, to the committee gratia We were fortunate In not hav ing any sickness or any serious acci dents throughout the two seasons, which, we believe I of great credit to director Hern and Legionnaire Turner, through their close supervi sion of the boys at all time. "Your personnel committee worked consistently throughout the season and endeavored to select the most worthy and underprivileged boys from our city. We have received a number of gifts thi teason and our appreciation 1 expressed to Le gionnaire Zlnk for donating the Ford truck used at the camp: to Legion naire John Ball for two truck tire and one Ford battery: to Legionnaire Bannon for a radio battery: to Le gtonaire Kalln and Horwitt for two tables and six chair.

Investment, Not An Expense Mr. King emphasized the fact that the school, which cost $326,116 80. is aa investment, not an expense. He drew a parallel between a large business corporation and a city, ex plaining that development of the personnel 1 the most important consideration In the progress of both. The school, he said, is a fac tor in organizing and developing the personnel of the community. Mr. King referred to disagreements with the school board en its financial pol icy, answering the criticism by say ing that citizens should do as much as possible in the construction of schools not as little as possible.

Vance and he expressed the gratitude of the association for her thoughtfulness and generosity. Beautiful With Children Present Mis Elizabeth Leghorn, principal of the school, spoke briefly, saying "You think this is a beautiful place now. You should see how beautiful it is when the children are here. Their smiling faces are a constant challenge to the teachers to do their very best." She complimented the members of thg faculty for their genuine interest in their children and for their appreciation of the facili ties afforded by the magnificent monument to education. Principal White of the Normal school said he would assume the privilege of hts years and delve Into the past for the purpose of com paring conditions then and now.

Vance and hi newspaper that we did obtain- additional facilities in New Britain for training teachers," he declared. Bartlett School Xot Fit Mr. White spoke of the days when the Bartlett school was used for training. "We decided eventually to leave there." he said, adding: "I think it would be better for every one to leave that school it is not fit for children." Mr. White humorously referred to the Vance school as "my school." He said that he was not ashamed to leave the Normal school which the state has built in Belvidere and take visitors to the Vance school." It is a beautiful building with an in spiring influence on the children who attend classes here." he asserted.

"This directly affects hundreds of thousand of adults and children and tens of thousands of teachers." he added. "By its example. New Britain Is an inspiration and a challenge to other cities in the state to enlarge their scale of education facilities."

Before adjourning the meeting, President Rackliffe expressed his thanks to the High School orchestra and Prof. Matthews. HOOVtir MARKET HAS NEW MM TO MM (Continued From First Page) the floor of the exchange this week have exceeded any ever witnessed before. Under the eyes of crowded galleries, brokers fight and scramble on the floor, screaming orders, the noise rolling out and echoing back from the canyons of the financial district: a mighty shout ss com pared to the ordinary hum of voices. Around the "active posts," that is the stations at which the most ac tive big stocks are traded, there was a maelstrom of humanity.
