There were two coll ides in Ellsworth's roadster at the ime o the arrest, it was said, but ill denied hearing the whistle which be constable blew in an attempt 10 )top the car. Unable, to reach the tide of the. oad.-ur, which lie .-aid picked up u its speed as tile chase be-all, C'0,1 lable Venires lollowed Ellsworth :rom Upson's corner on the New ltrit:Un road as tar as Main street jeforu getting the attention of Ihj hpeeder. When Klkworth tesliiied iie did not hear tiie coii.slable's sig nal an additional charge of evading krrest was dropped. "How-last do you drive a car when there is no ice on the road'.'" isked Judge George CI. Grisuold. "About 30 or .';.' miles an hour," answered Ellsworth. "Then you wait until it snows to do your speeding, do ou'.'" the Judge shot back. '1'he ense c tided uith the imposition of a line of $h by the judge. Two More Diiurs l'a Josiph Bee her, 4i. and Frederick j W.

Though H' cki r pleaded no: guilty lo his charge a tine of $15 was imposed against him by Judge Uris wold. Whitman was lined J:S and warned to carry his papers with him in the future. Berlin Ends Quiet Year The year 1330 as it affected Ber lin waa not particularly eventful in contrast jvita other, limes, taoufiii XromThomsonSiic. 'fwrtfbTdte SAoj)png (Senten OUT OF TOWN CUSTOMERS CALL ENTERPRISE 1200 issue of thk outstanding paper event! for there are several points of interest which may be noted. As tor statis tics, Dan Cupid lost much of his former power in the. town, there be ing noticeably fewer marriages in lierlin in 13SU than in 15:9, though Ihe birth rate and death rate re mained substantially the same as in recent years. A number of aged and prominent residents passed away during the course of evmts, and Upson's cor ner in Kensington, though claimed by experts to be one of the safest curves on all Connecticut's high ways, remained a danger spot for many motorists, there being numer ous accidents there, two resulting in deaths. Kensington ponds claimed three young drowning victims. The school accommodations prob lem remains unsettled as the New Year is ushered in, with a meeting of the building committee promised in the near future. The two-platoon system remains intact, and the Ken sington Grammar school still has a portable building wherein two classes hold their daily sessions. Between the torn borer plague and tiie siiiiinn r's dionght the farmers, who form a large part of Berlin's population, have had a hard time in making ends meet. The slump in business during the past year resulted in some unem ployment, chiefly among iron work ers, but two of the local manufac turers, the Prentice .Mfg. Co., and the Goss and DcLeeuw Chucking Machine company, showed marked signs of prosperity, running into extra hours in some instances. During I lie late months of the vear a serious question arose, that of whither a part of Kensington! should be anne.vd to New Britain j or not. 'I be id' a S' ei to N'W HritainiUs. ha ,d among them, but old citizens Oi Kcn.-inirton van heard to voice op position, savin'-" that Hie proposed property tor annexation would in clude land which would doubtless be considei"d valuable in the suture.

A review of the year 1S30 shows that Plainville took great strides for ward by means of many civic im provements despite the business de pression that existed here as in other parts of the country. The highlight of the year was the start of work on the construction ot a $50,000 li brary building, a long needed ne cessity in this town. The first step towards civic pro gress was taken early in the year when a special town meeting was held to discuss the sanitary sewers with the state health department. A committee of Plainville residents made an extensive study of the mat ter. In addition, peddlers' laws were established and a zoning commission appointed by the selectmen. The town plan commission accepted a large number of streets and estab lished many street and veranda lines. A new heating plant was es tablished in the Broad street school and numerous repairs made during the summer to all the schools. A committee was appointed by the Chamber of Commerce to formulate I plans for the organization of a small j claims court. Last, but not least. I was the organization of a central j unemployment bureau to bring re lief to the needy of the town. Many ! other matters that tended to push the tow n forward were accomplished during the year. Grand LL-t Increases The total of the grand list was .. Hi.22'i,7(jS, an increase of three per cent over the previous year's. As usual the Trumbull Electric Mfg. Co. headed tiie list, while Henry Trum bull waa the highest individual tax payer on the, list. Eight Violent Deaths During the year there were eight violent deaths, an increase of four over 1929. Three met death through drowning while live other victims were claimed through suicide, alco holic and gas poisoning, and auto and trolley accidents. Many of Hie town's old'st resi dents died during the year. A re vicw of the vital statistics shows that 45 residents over the age of 60 years passed away. This was al most half of the entire death list for the year. Many sudden death3 were recorded. Among those who passed away were William S. Vance, 43, prom inent Odd Fellow; Norman C Sprague, prominent Mason; Theo dore Derby, 71, veteran railroad worker; Roma C. Barrett, long asso ciated with the Odd Fellows and the railroad; Mrs. Lninia Woodford, 75; Miss Ann Brock, 9u; Laust M. Laur idscn. 77; Mrs. Elizabeth B. Eaton. Si; Mrs. Frances Peck, S3; Frances Ferrero, 33; George F. Andrews, 7u; Mrs. Ella L. Lewis, .S2; Mrs. .Mary E. Barrett, S: Stewart Bloodgood, 07; Mrs. Louis A. Ryder, 76; John J. Kiinmel, former lirst selectman, 00; Mrs. Charles Greene, S"; Mrs. Rosa E. Dart, 53: James W. Hal sted. S5, Civil war veteran: and many other well known residents. Although only one deatli from automobiles occurred here, about 50 persons received more or b ss seri ous injuries iu accidents. About 20 required hospital attention. Two New Clcvgnien Two chaug's we,-,; made in the pas torates of Hie local churches dur ing tile year. Uev. William I'.

The usual 4 to 1 majority of ihe G. O. P. was cut down to less than 100 voles. The voting was ex tremely heavy at the state election. James Simpson was reelected first selectman for the fourth successive year. For the first time in years the democrats placed a full ticket on the field in the town (lection. The only republican candidate endorsed dur ing the year was Judge Meritt O. Ryder. Many prominent democratic and republican state leaders spoke at rallies held here. Business Fairly Good The business depression was felt here as keenly as elsewhere but the local factories managed to work at fairly good hours throughout the year. Only a few people were laid off during the year, as attempts were made to give them a few days work, at least, especially at the Trumbull Mfg. Co. Only last week the town took a great step toward unemploy men relief by appropriating $8,000 for unemployment relief work. The really big accomplishment ot the year was the successful cam paign for library funds of $50, ''00. Despite the adverse business condi tions, benefit dances, entertainments and other affairs were all largely at tended and tidy sums of money realized. Prominent men and women of the town, aided by the general public, devoted countless hours throughout the year to getting the li brary construction under way. In summing up the year, it is evi dent that the town enjoyed a great period of progress considering the business conditions, and indications point to a still better year in 1931. With two representative in the gen eral assembly instead of one, be cause of the increase in population, Plainville has taken on a new lease of life and is anxious to keep mov ing forward.

This publication replaces the Uona' Roar" which was discarded recently because of the antiquity of !U title. Judge Joseph M. Donovan, prom inent in Lions' club activities, is edi tor of the new sheet, the title of which he chose after considerable scrutiny of African and Asian works of literature. In the African lan guage, he claims, "Simba" signifies "roar" and is the signal of natives to run the other way when one of the king of beasts is discovered In the vicinity. To distinguish between the Afri can and local Hon, the judge added "Nutmeg" to the title.
