First Selectman Sanford has been r s eed by the State Council Of Defense to aid in movements -undertaken to increase food production the coming season toy enlarging the area devoted to crops and bringing into service la tor for their cultivation which special effort is required to make available. One of these movements is the crea tion of a junior organization desfgnea to enlist boys and girls in the growing of garden products and others means for the growing and -saving of food. The selectman has appointed Town Clerk Sanford as a committee ro get such an organization under way. Lo cal efforts to increase membership in the County Farm Bureau will also be made, a general drive for that object having been arranged' to start on March 8. The town has already a con siderable membership in the bureau, but there is no reason why it cannot be materially' increased. In the same general line of endeavor is the cam paign to utilize the older school boys as farm helpers and this will be the theme considered at the next meeting of the Men's club to be held on Thurs day evening of next week. Contrary to custom it will be an open or public meeting andi will take place at the Sanford school instead of at the home of W. C. Sanford or originally ap pointed. The speaker of the evening, if he can he secured, will be Mr. Rol lin .who is in charge of the move lin, who is in charge of the move- The herd of about 40 deer which Commodore Luttgen turned loose from their enclosure at Sunset Hill last fall in order that the forage they would have needed in confinement might be saved for domestic animals, have entirely vanished from that sec tion. In the early part of the winter small detachments of them occasion ally appeared near their former place of keeping, but failing to receive food did not linger long. Scattered groups were seen from time to time in the woods within a few miles of the hill and a number of the wanderers are known to have been shot. The list of killings reported does not account, however, for half the herd. It was thought that some of thes urvivors, if there are any, might show up this spring at their former home, but so far not one has put in an appearance. William Colley, a well known resi dent of .Georgetown, formerly em ployed as a blacksmith by the Gilbert & Bennett Co., died suddenly on Wed nesday of last week. He was at the dinner table when he slid from his j chair in a faint. He died the same evening without regaining conscious ness. The attending physician found that death was due to kidney disease. J The deceased was 47 years old and is survived by a wife and two children. A local car owner who has driven more than 50,000 miles and so certifi ed when he recently forwarded his application for renewal of license was surprised by the statement in the of ficial response that, being without experience as a driver, he must go before the board of examiners. Another applicant who is a justice of the peace, acknowledged his own ap- plication as the subscribing authority thereby certifying that he had "per sonally appeared," etc. "Did you do it by standing in front of a mirror?" was the comment written upon the papers before they were returned to him. The pupils of the new Georgetown school gave an exhibition last Thurs- i day evening before a large assemblage j of parents and friends. The exercises occupied about two hours and pre- sented a highly pleasing and satisfac i tory demonstration of the instruction ! carried on in each of the five depart j ments and also in culinary instruc tion. To the latter one teacher gives her entire time. In all particulars ' the exhibition convinced the audience that they had a school to be proud of. Three of the eight children of Wil liam Crouch, living in the Glen sec tion, are victims of scarlet fever in a mild form. All attend the Center school, but Dr. Smith after ascertain ing (he circumstances, decided that the closing of the school was not necessary. News of the death of Thomas Lud way, which occurred in New York in December, was received in this town only a few days ago. He had been a resident of Redding most of his life and was 87 years of age. His mar riage to 'his second wife, who Furvlves him, occurred when he was about 75, and one child was a result of the union. The deceased served through the Civil War in a -New York regi ment of volunteers. A dance was given at George Hall last Friday evening under the man agement .of William E. Banks. U. S.
