No action was taken in the nif ter by the freeholders yesterday, the members of the board feeling that it was a matter to be taken up with the present highway commission, be fore any kind was voiced on the sub ject by the county authorities. Improvements were also asked for on the Pumptown-Oak tree mad by the same delegation, and they wrere assured by Road Supervisor John Liesen that the road would receive attention just as soon as the re pairs now underway on Park ave nue are completed. A supplemental contract providing for the rebuilding of catch basins on tlie Perth Amboy Sewaren road was authorized at a cost of $280. Another effort is to be made ny the freeholders to convince the state road authorities of the need of officers on the Albany street bridge at New Brunswick empowered to en- ; force the traffic laws and make ar- , rests if necessary. This action fol lows the many traffic jams and minor accidents that have occurred there during the past few months. The freeholders took the same question up with the old highway commission but were never able to get results, but the feeling now’ pre- 1 vails that Commissioner Abraham Jelin of this city will realize the importance of the request and will see to it that the bridge tenders are given the pow’er as well as the orders to properly regulate traffic. Applications has been made to the war department for the widening of this structure by building on a four teen foot addition to the downsream side of the bridge, and the freehold ers were formally notified yesterday that objections to the project will he heard on June 25 at which time a decision on the matter will be ren dered by the federal body.

Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, at the city hall park last night, it which time Thomas F. Martin, lecretary of state of New Jersey, was he main speaker. The complete program started with a short parade from Elks rooms m Madison avenue to the park, in which the drum corp of the Third Battalion Naval Militia, Boy Scouts tnd members of the local lodge par icipated. At the park the Elks took heir places on the platform, while he Boy Scouts formed a circle about he front of the stand. The first number of the program, which was one of the best ever pre lented in an event of its kind here, were the introductory exercises by Exalted Ruler A. F. Greiner and the pfficers of the local lodge, who told hose present in a few wards from ?ach the purpose of the gathering ind what the American Flag meant :o everyone attending. This was followed by the prayer by Rev. Wilbert Westeott, a selection by Lhe Third Battalion Naval Militia band, and the history of th. Ameri can Flag, which was read by Past [Exalted Ruler Emil Stremlau, A feature of the evening’s affair was the altar service conducted by [Esquire Harry Ford and officers, which consisted of four of the mem bers erecting a Liberty Bell of flowers in the center of the platform. Bach member of the quartet carried bis section to the table and with the red base covered with roses, the Con or nf white lillioy tliA ilnniA nf vln. lets, and a cross piece of gold stars, formed a beautiful flower-covered tell. As each member added his sec ;ion to the construction of the bell, he significance of that part was told ty the one presenting it. This ser vice was followed by "Auld Lang 3yne,” sang by the officers. The Elks tribute to the flag was hen given by Charles Simmen, past sxalted ruler, who told the signlfi ance of the flag, the meaning of laeh colored section, and the flag rom the Elks point of view. In his tirrlng address the past exalted uler told of the origin of the flag, ts being the first to represent a peo >le, rather than a monarch, and its ong conflict and heroic struggle en ountered until it expanded and gave o this country a new life of Liberty. Following Mr. Simmon's address, liss Elsie Schrimpf recited "Old Tag,’’ after which the Third Bat alion Naval Militia band rendered a election. Secretary Martin, was the next peaker of the affair, and in a very aspiring talk told those present the bjecta of the meeting and the Elks impose of holding the exercises, In the beginning of his remarks, he secretary of state told of the 1, 00 Elks lodges who were fostering Tag Lay exercises in all parts of he country last night, saying that he main purpose was to gather the eople to hear the things to he said bout the flag in order that the cit enship of everyone attending might s elevated to the stand from which le highest of respect and honor ould be given to "Old Glory.” In further remarks he flaved the 1 American citizen or the body of 1 American people who belong to a • class or who are In sympathy with 1 a class who use the American flag in carrying out their non-American ends, and who by their false doc trines and teaching tend to destroy this great country of ours. "The American flag is for true ' Americans only" he said, "and its ‘ use in anything that is not wholly f American is only intended by those ' scoundrels bearing it to destroy the 1 principals of our government.” He then told of the love of the ■ flag by those who died for it in ] Prance, and said that they died with the idea and thought in mind that their supreme sacrifice was the compensation paid for the stopping • of the war and the prevention of an other. 1 The speaker then talked on the 1 help and support'to be given to the I younger generation, as prescribed by ’ President H-rding, and added that ! the first lesson in the lives of Amer- ' icans in regard to their love and re spect for the flag should be given in icii jruui.ll. Mr. Martin concluded by saying tat he wished those present would ave the meeting with the hope that le story told him by an old In ianian was rue, and that they keep in their hearts and memories for cer. The story he said was that of te creation of the World by God. i which he took seven days to cra te the trees, water and land, and n the seventh day he rested. "It as on this day,’’ the speaker said, that God came to the balcony of le Heavens and looking down srail ti, and where this smlie lighted, is ur country." The next number of the program as the prsentation of $2,246.26 by ast Exalted Ruler Harold E. Pick rsgiil to the local Boy Scouts as the esult of the recent campaign oon ucted by the local order of Elka. In presenting the money the Re order told the boys that to raise he money was like "taking candy rom a child.” and that if more was eeded the Elks would only be too lad to come forth and lend another elping hand. The past exalted ruler then in a ew added words told of the work of lie Elks organization at the present Ime. He said that in former years he Elks were recognized as a body pho were organized for a good time, mt now they have become an organ zation of serious responsibility, and te pointed out the work done for he crippled children and the Boy Icouts of late. He then reversed his words to the Irive for the support of the Boy Icout movement, and said that he lad three reasons for taking a place n the committee appointed to do his work. “First, to show that the day of the Elks organization is hadowed by the great charitable cork now being done in the commu lities in all parts of the country, lecond, because after looking at the vay the local Boy Scouts have pro fressed, and what they have accom illshed in spite of their being held town, I believe they will do great hlngs with a lithe assistance, and hlrd. because remembering that the leople of Pe^th Amboy have always [one over the top in assisting the | Jnited States government during the var, aurely they will come forth vith helping hands for a movement hat will develop good, honest Amer can citizens.” the judge said.
