TO STUDYSEWAGE Expert Tells Townspeople Pe quabuck Pollution Must Cease PEDDLING LAWS ADOPTED Chamber of Commerce Banquet May S Meeting of Firemen's Ball Committee V. M. C. A. Basket ball Team Defeated Other Items At a small but representative gathering at the special town meet ing held last cvening'in tho auditor ium of tho high school, a resolu tion was passed authorizing thi board of selectmen to appoint a committee of five to investigate re garding the disposal of sewage in Plainville. This committee is to make a report with definite recom mendations of sewage disposal and is authorized to confer wifli the City of Bristol on the advisability of a joint sewage plant. Following a rec ommendation made by Henry Trum bull, the sewage committee was or dered to make a report in not more than one year. The meeting was called to order by First Selectman James Simpson. A vote was t; ken and Stanley S. Gwillim was appointed chairman of the meeting. Upon Mr. Gwillim's request, Town Clerk William H. Wilson read a letter from the state water commission directing the at tention of tho people of the town to the pollution of streams passing Ithrough here. The letter stated that the commission discovered three years ago tlrat the Vequabuck river was being polluted by Plainville sewage. Three suggestions for a remedy of the conditions existing here were included in the letter, as follows: 1. That a sum of money be ap propriated to bring the previous en gineering survey made by Engineer Joseph N. McKernan of the Plain ville Water Co. up to date. 2. The selection and acquisition of such land or option thereon as the survey indicates should be ob tained for a sewage treatment plant. u. That a study of the most suit able means of financing; the con struction of a sewage system should be made. Expert K.vplains Conditions In speaking before the' gathering, Sanford H. Wadhams of Torrington, a member of the state water com mission, slated that the time had come when it was necessary for the people of Plainville to give serious attention to tho sewage problem facing them and to do something detinue to lessen the pollution of the Pequabuck river. This river, according to Mr. Wadhams. is badly polluted as the. result of Plainvllle's sewage being dumped into it, a fact which was first discovered three years ago by the state commission. He told his listeners that the state commission had power to act under the state statutes but its policy was to place the matter before the com munity involved for settlement. He said that several years ago a sew age survey was made bv Mr. Mc Kernan and it would take onlv a small amount of money to bring it up to dnte. Mr. Wadhams was high in his praise of the sewage disposal plant in Bristdl 'and said that it was one of the best in the slate. This Bristol plant takes care of the entire city outside of the Forestville section. The only way that sewage in Forestville could be taken care of at the present time would be by pumping, therefore it would save a great deal of money and time if Plainville and Bristol conferred concerning the construe- tion of a joint sewage disposal plant. he said, -Mr. Wadhams stated that the pol lution of the Pequabuck river should be stopped so that the water could be used -for the purpose for which it waj intended. An cngin cer from the stata water depart ment said, in answer to a question, SUMO TONIGHT John Gandck ami Helen Chandler In "THE SKY HAWK" NF.WS COMEDY ACTS YVF.D., THIRS. MAT. WED. George Arllss in "DISRAELI'1 A Dramatic Misterpicce Dresser Ware Wednesday Night HIS FRIENDS jt ua mast that the river was badly polluted, some places being worse than oth ers. The state water commissioner's talk proved very enlightening and stirred up interest in the project to construct a sewage disposal plant here and do away with the river pollution. He urged his listeners to take hold of the matter at once be cause of its seriousness. Work on the sewage question was started last year by the sewer com mittee of the Chamber of Com merce under the head of F. L. Ben zon. A little over a month ago this committee went to Hartford and held a meeting with representatives of the state health and water de partments, receiving much valuable information. Last night's action was the result of thi3 meeting. To Xante Zoning Committee The board of selectmen was au thorized to appoint a zoning com mission of not more than five mem bers to study town foning and plan ning. President Leon C. Staples of the Chamber of Commerce address ed the gathering and stated that the chamber had worked on the zonin; problem for two years and had de voted much study and time to" the I matter. He said that much import lant data had been gathered .and prepared which the chamber would turn over to the new zoning com mission. Playground Offer Tabled The offer of the playground com mittee to donate to the town of Plainville slides, swings, sand boxes and other instrumentalities of amusement heretofore installed and maintained by the playground com mittee was tabled. When the time came to place the matter berore the meeting, it was discovered that the chairman had no resolution dealing on the matter. He questioned the gathering but no one present knew anything of a resolution. Chairman Gwillim then stated that the matter would have to be tabled as the meeting had no power to act with out a resolution. Furthermore, as the taking over of the playground would involve expense, the matter was one to be included in next year's budget and not at this meet ing, he added. Principal Orrin L. Judd of the Broad street school spoke upon re quest and stated that at the pres ent time the playground on Broad street was maintained by the Plain ville Graded School Alumni associ ation. Mr. Judd stated that at a meetinrr held last year, at which he was not present, it was voted to request the town to take over the playground and maintain it in the future. He said that the cost of maintaining it yearly amounted to about $300. Superintendent of Schools Leon C. Staples also spoke on the matter and said that tho playground took care of about 200 children each summer, keeping them off the streets and out of trouble. Both Mr. Judd and Mr. Staples were surprised that no of ficer from tho Plainville Graded School Alumni association appeared at the meeting to present a resolu tion. Mr. Gwillim said that the playground was without a doubt a great benefit to the children of the town but tho meeting was powerless to act. Adopt Ordinance on Peddling A set of by-laws governing the licensing of peddlers in Plainville was placed before the meeting by the Chamber of Commerce. The laws were drawn up by Deputy Judge Cornelius B. Prior for the chamber. They were read in full to the gather ing by Town Clerk William H. Wil son. A large number of questions were asked concerning. various sections of the proposed laws. Many took ob jection to the clause ordering the peddler to wear a badge on his per- ana mis caused considers bin discussion. It was finally put to a vote and the proposed amendment io lane this clause, out of the. resolutions-was defeated. Tho majority believed that housewives would be protected by having the peddlers wear badges. Not a single person voted against tho adoption of the new by-laws when they were placed before the meeting for adoption. v Terms or Ordinance The by-laws governing peddlers' licenses are as follows: "Section L No person except those exempted by the statutes of the state shall sell or offer for sale w ith in the town, any groceries, provisions, fruits or any article of food, or any goods, wares, or merchandise, unless he shall have obtained a license to do so from the board of selectmen.
