Commending the “ability, deep per
sonal interest in affairs of the National
Capital and untiring enthusiasm” of
Lieut. Col. U. S. Grant, 3d. the citizens
passed a resolution expressing their
1 gratification at his retention as director
of the Office of Public Buildings and
[ Public Parks.
! Acting on the request of the Zoning
Commission, the association went on
record as opposing reclassification of
tlie area at Twenty-first street and
Bunker Hill road from residential to
second commercial. If the territory is
made first commercial it would not be
objectionable to the association.
The group gave its indorsement to the
proposed legislation eliminating part
time employes from the provisions of
the workmen's compensation act.
Seeking to relieve traffic conditions in
the neighborhood, the citizens suggested
that cars returning to the Eckington
bam be required to take on passengers,
and asked that the car stop at South
Dakota avenue be transferred to the
i east corner to eliminate the double stop
required by the new traffic lights.
M. A. Chapman, captain of No. 18
Engine Co. and president of the
City Fire Fighters’ Association, ad
dressed the meeting. Musical selec
tions were furnished by the Boys' Band
of the Langdon School, under the di
rection of Mrs. M. Luyster.
Three new members were admitted.
They Are Frank N. Mitchell, J. Thomas
Mayhew and Mrs. Frank J. Brunner.
The earth is cooling off at the rate
of about 2 degrees Fahrenheit each
16.000.000 years, according to a Govern
ment scientist.
