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

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.

In a recent bulletin issued by the United States Bureau of Fisheries
the Department urges a more extensive use of the EULACHOTf (Pacific
Coast Smelt ) as a food fish. To quote from their bulletin, the EULACHOX
is described as "the finest food fish to the World tender, fragrant,
digestible."
- On Tuesday we will have a quantity of these fish on sale at the low
price of 12c a lb. to introduce them.
We expect a heavy demand for these fish, which In some sections
are already favorably known. We urge you, if yon want to co-operate
with us in their distribution, to send your orders in early, as with the
limited quantity we will have,' it will be a case of "First come, first
