GREENBELT COOPERATOR GREENBELT, MARYLAND Telephone: GREENBELT 3131 The Greenbelt Cooperative Publishing Association, Inc. Editor Francis Fosnight Assistant Editor Donald H. Cooper News Editor Helen Chasanow Copy Editor Jack Schaeffer Women’s Editor Peggie Arness Volume 6, Number 8 October 10, 1941 Let's Do a Little Dusting Off Our former council left unacted an ordinance to regu late bicycles in Greenbelt. This regulation should not be allowed to gather too much dust. We realize that statutory regulations should be the last step in controlling a situation, but we feel that all other means have failed and it is nec essary to protect our citizens through the use of the law. We have recently noticed the increasing daring of our young cyclists in the town center. Their antics endanger not only themselves, but any person who happens to be walking in tHe center. In fact, we saw one careless cyclist almost run down an infant that had strayed from its mother for a second. If the bicycle had struck this child there would have been another traffic death in Greenbelt. We have seen these riderf- com down a one-way street the wrong way, in complete disregard for the right-of-way law and all safety rules. We have seen them riding down the sidewalks of our town forcing pedestrians to take to the sides for protection. These things must stop. Housing i. I . (Continued from Page 1) ••Drtnald Cooper in reporting on the summer activities of Scout Troop 252, announced a barbecue on October 18, which interested adults rnay attend at 50c each, while prospective scouts 12 years of age or older may come free, if they .register with Scoutmaster Chick Turner at 2-K Westway, a week before. Mr. Cooper an nounced that the troop is building res own cabin, which can be com pleted soon with the assistance of interested people in Greenbelt. Director of Public Safety Pana gO'ulis introduced the new town bicycle Ordinance, under which a bicycle must be permanently rtg* istered for a maximum fee of 50 cents, for which a plate and reg istration card will be issued. This will facilitate recovery of lost or stolen bikes, permit the police to check on bicycle violators of town ordinances, and permit closer su pervision of bicycle lighting to prevent accidental death due to bike riding after dark without re flectors or lights. The Association went on record as favoring such an ordinance. The Association also recorded its disapproval of any ideas about Town Council meetings during the day, when no adequate supervision by interested citizens could be ex ercised. A motion to protest again the iuciiase of Councilmen’s salaries to +250 a year, wrs tabled for consideration by the Legislative and Town Administrative Com mittees under iU? new chairman Marjan P. Staniec. Councilman Bark-.r and Bauer were pment and asked for a more consistent effort on the part of the citizens to keep the coun cil informed as to the desires of the towns people, so as to guide their actions on matters such as daytime meetings and continua tion of the muricipal hospital in spite of a deficit. Mr. Barker pointed out, with reference to salaries, that the Town Charter does not permit any council to take any action to affect its own salaries, and that the new salary ordinance places a top limit of $250, but does not specify th : s amount. New chairmen of standing com mittees were announced as fol lows: Public relations, Lyman L. Woodman; legislative and town administration, Marjan P. Stan iec; public safety, Ben Rosenz weig; door-to-door mail service, S. H. Downs. Greenbelt’s daily commuters, after hours of fighting the Wash ington traffic, have come to the conclusion that Mr. Van Duzer is an engineer but a second look at the traflic convinces them that instead of being of the traffic va riety he most certainly is of the stationery type. Community Church New* Sunday, October 12, will mark an important anniversary in Greenbelt’s church history. It is the fourth year of the town com munity life. The impending departure of Fred L. Wilde, who will leave on October 14 for New York, will play an important part in the services for that day. Local church leaders stated that there has scarcely been a phase of com munity life which is not richer because of Mr. Wilde’s participa tion. Fred Wilde started serving on the original church organization committee. For three and a half years he has been a member of the finance committee. He has also been choir director, and has assisted musically with the church school and in the Men’s Bible Class. That the church service on Oc tober 12 may be designated as the "Fred Wilde Service,” as a trib ute to Mr. Wilde and his work, was indicated by church_Jeaders, who expressed a desire" to invite to the service persons of all faiths. At the close of the morning worship, there will be a brief meeting of the membership un der the chairmanship of William R. Neblett. This will be for the purpose of acquainting the mem bership with all facts pertaining to the filling of the pulpit, and to rrrive at important decisions af fecting the future of the church. A Parting (Continued from Page 1) They’re too gradual to see, and when you’re living here you don’t realize they’re going on. Only some one who goes away, say for a' year, and comes back, can ap preciate changes in the people’s reactions to situations and things.” Fred wonders how well a “transient” town like Green belt will be kept together. “Who’s going to introduce the new citi zens to the responsibilities of com munity life so that occurring va cancies can be filled?” Come back in a year or two, Fred, and see how we’re doing! Rysticken In Charge While Braden Is Away Roy S. Braden, as town mana ger of Greenbelt, left Sunday to attend a conference at which were present the town managers of Greenhills, Ohio, and Greendale, Wisconsin, which was held at Mil waukee. Acting as town manager in Mr. Braden’s absence is Arthur L. Rysticken.

Our neighbors were also very kind and loving in their efforts to comfort and help us. —Mr. and Mrs. G. Wilson Altizer Buy Citrus Fruit By the Pound When you buy oranges, whether for juice or just for eating, it’s a good idea to buy them by the pound, says Consumers’ Guide. That way you know how much citrus fruit you’re getting for your money. In comparing prices, remember that different size oranges and grapefruit sell at different prices so be sure you compare prices of the same size when you shop around for the best buys. Orange sizes are measured by the number that fit into an orange crate. Large oranges range from the biggest size, No. 80 (that is, 80 oranges to the crate), down to No. 126 (126 oranges to the crate). Medium-sized oranges run from 150 to 216 to the crate. Small oranges begin at 250 to the crate and run all the way down to the kind that are almost the size of golf balls, which come 392 to a crate. Gun Club Loses Match to Aggies Greenbelt Gun Club riflemen shot a Dewar Course match with the U. S. Aggies last Sunday at the Beltaville Range and lost to their opponents, 1924 to 1949 points. This was a return match, the Greenbelters having won the previous scrap. High man for the Greenbelt team was Lyman Wood man, with a score of 391. Two picked 4-man rifle teams will be entered by Greenbelt in the National Capital Rifle Club’s Seventh Annual Fall Tournament matches at Camp Simms in Ana costia this coming Sunday, Octo ber 12.
