With conferences being held almost
daily, new legislation, appeals, and a
general feeling of unrest in the local
and state transportation problem, ru
mors are flying thick and fast. The
two latest were run down this morn
ing and seem to be without grounds.
Vice-President John K. Punderford
denies one to the effect that Manager
Potter of the local lines was to leave
Bridgeport. Punderford said that it
was news to him.
When Potter was questioned on the
matter he had a good laugh. lie also
denied that an addition to the Strat
ford avenue barns was anticipated.
Knowledge of any contemplated
change in the fare situation is also
denied. The only recent activity lo
cally reported was the burning of a
number of single truck open cars of
ancient vintage at the Stratford ave
nue barns, in order to salvage the
It is pointed out that the car
have long since been robbed of their
motors, have no air brake equip
ment, but the old fashioned "rubber"
hand brakes, and that most of them
long ago earned their cost. These
cars were so well put together, that
in spite of the many miles they have
rocked over the roadbed, it would
cost more to take them apart and
save the woodwork, than the lumber
would be worth.
The more modern equipment be
longing to the company is being kept
in constant repair, ready for any
rush that may be anticipated.
The Industrial Service MuvMOiamt of
the Bridgeport Y. M. C. A. has issued
its regular monthly report. The ya
port for the month of May shows
considerable progress and gains over
previous months, notwithstanding
the fact that the industries served are
not working full time. Attention is
being given by the secretaries of the
department to the promotion of ac
tivities that will meet the needs of
the men and those that will interest
them most. Support has been given
to some extent to baseball teams of
unemployed men. The Americaniza
tion department has a day school on
Thursday and Friday afternoons for
unemployed and men who do not
work the latter part of the week. A
small number of positions were se
cured during the month.
Every effort is being made by the
secretarial staff to produce a maxi
mum of service in the promotion of
its program in its industries. Ath
letics will be pushed in an intensive
way. Playground ball, quoits, volley
hall, baseball, athletic meets at out
inge, and other forms of athletics will
be staged. The Americanization de
partment is lining up the applicants
for citizenship papers who were con
tinued for further study, for the com
ing naturalization class.
The Industrial Department is large
ly sustained by the following indus
tries. Acme Shear Co., Automatic
Machine & Tool Co., Hilton Machine
& Tool Co., American Chain Co.,
Holmes & Edwards and the Bridge

factories are indebted to these in

When the sun is high overhead and
the tedium of the day is exhausting,
remember that in he heart of the city
there is an oasis that has an appeal.
