Sundays In view of protests entered by the Business Men's Association against local storekeepers tvho are opening their snops on Sunday in violation of the state laws the police have decid ed to take immediate action in en forciny the statutes regarding Sur.day trade and business. It is suid that many local stores are now kept open on Sundays in violation of specific State laws, and goods are sold which are not included among those named in the statutes. Begin ning next Sunday the police will in vestigate all cases where such condi tions are said to exist, and arrests will probably be mad 3 if violations of the law are discovered. Persons whose religious faith marks Saturday as the Sabbath, may keep their stores open on Sunday, provided they file notice in the office of the rosecurrr.s: attorney, and close their shops on Saturday. Connecticut college students will gave a benefit dance on Saturday eve ning. June 25th. at 8 o'clock In the ballroom of the Stratfieid hotel. Pro ceeds will go towards tho college en dowment fund.

I would extend "the Plaza, between Ftate and Bank streets up to Main street. giving a park and a wide topen space facing the new City Hall, vith planting and suitable decora tions. "The eastern part of this park, which would include the present Plaza, would be given to improving and facilitating the down town traf fic; and for allowing a large place for (parking of automobiles, two very great essentials for Bridgeport. "This entire development is a for ward looking proposition, which con siders the City of Bridgeport fifty years from now, and beyond; and it would place Bridgeport 'on the map' redeeming it from probably the most .unbeautiiul city of its size in Ameri caas far ss the down town district goes, to one with a very line archi tectural civic central development worthy of a city o.f its class. "We then could hold up our heads with Hartford, New Haven and Wat erbury. "I would especially stress the word forward-looking; because that is the very' first consideration in planning for the. development of a city; and it seems to have been the last one in the growth of Bridgeport, which has hrown like Topsy' grew. "One of the strongest arguments for this suggested development is that it wastes nothing that nas been done. "This is where the text of the ser mon comes in; "As a stsp toward t-his development tho mililon dollars expended for the pnesen- Plaza was mighty well spent. As a hap-hazard thing, it was not much better than thrown away. So that, with this plan, the Plaza be comes an essential part of a great civic devplcpuifcnt "The present dignified old City Hall and the bea-utiful small parks in con nection with it, occupying two-thirds of tho block from Alain to Broad streets, would be a fine part of this development; and these inchide a 'bit W.

Colton's Address 3 he practice of Christianity as an anUMote for the ills of the day was line theme of Mr. Colton's address, and he pointed out in eloquent terms the plaf the Y. M. C. A. should fill in thiiO program. Kl opening Mr. Colton sale- "We are all aware that following the war tha-'i America went into a sort of re actionary attitude and indulged it self in a mean spirit. The experiences of recent months are putting Amer ica, out of this mood and I praise GM for it. because it wasn't a happy sitiMltion for anybody concerned Erf erring to the effect of the war on 13ie Y. M. C. A, he said: "If any one ha" any notion that the war just abotlt wrecked the poor old T., he is indulging in a notion as far from t'.ie facts ns it is possible for the hu mafl mind to get" T.fking as his text, a sentence used by 3r. John R. Mott on his return front Europe shortly after the out break of the war: "The foundations are heavimr over there," Mr. Colton pained a vivid picture of conditions abrVbd, especially in Russia, and de clare that the war had changed maty things even in America, adding: "It jour job looks like it did six ye:u"fc ago, you ought to be a worried niaiK There is something wrong with you.'' Appeal to Religion. Cmtinuing, Mr. Colton said: "There is mV-hing which arrests my attention so pflrsistently since 1 came back from Russia as what I would call signals of distress appealing to the ministry of rlligion to meet the needs of the Jay. These calls come from unex pectTkl Quarters, from finance, indus try :d politics." After quoting some of tJlese calls from trade papers. lead ers i S cor-jnerco and others. Mr. Col ton said: "We haven't thought of Henfy Wattersoh as a religious teaaDier. Yet at the close of his aai :obi Irraphy he summed up thoso rich expel fences, of his versatile life in theai"1 words: 'Surely the future looks bktcil: enough, but it holds a hope, a singifi hope and one power only can arreti t the descent and save us, that is thin Christian religion." "Why are ail these forces appealing to t?!e mmistry of religion?" asked Mr. Coiton -.and his answer wast "The ontstanding face in the world toda is that the great mass of com1 mon men and everywhere havebe$run at osce altogether to move in the di rection of getting what they consider a fair share in the distribution of the material things of the world. Obrnmon Men Into Xnetr Own, "A man doesnt talk with many peopte who know what has happened in th world during the last six years to rfUise they are feoins to set it. and of history, which ,it seems, a great , many Americans have not yet learned to have much respect for. excepting as they spend their money abroad trying to appreciate the history of other poopfes. "The splendid bank buildings, First National; Bridgeport Savings; Bridge port Trust; Connecticut National; Lib erty Building; would all be important parts of this civic improvement. It takes a number of units to make a worth while development of this char acter. "Thus, all things that have been done, from the gift of the grounds for and the building of the fine old City Hall, almost one hundred years ago, to the acquiring of the Plaza, and building of the fine bank buildings, are important steps in this plan. Thus, as I say, nothing is wasted, as that is a very great thing to be able to say. Again, Providence. "The United Church, the new li brary, and possibly the fdture post office, would all be notable parts of this development. "It's a great project. That is the trouble; it's proibably too great for this one horse, hap-hazard town. "No such opportunity can be offer ed in any other part of the city, be cause nothing has been dorvi toward such a development. Here, where iTovadence has been working for the eventual irood of Bridgeport, the mil lions of dollars that have been ex pended are right in line for and a part of the scheme. It all counts, aand it ail would be where evei-yJbody could see and enjoy it. "The city should, as soon as possi ble, acquire by condemnatory pro ceedings, all of the property from the present City Hall, eastward 'x the Plaza, between State and Bank streets, and further, should obtain through the legislature, a holding act by which this property could be held and the rents collected by the city until such time as it were able to 11 ry out the development. "Thus, the property would pay for carrying the necessary bonds to be J men of open minds and steady vision have no regret that this is true. "What does concern everybody im mensely is how that result is going to be arrived at. There are just -wo processes by which that end may bo realized. There is a spirit raising its head, even m our own land, the spirit of self-interest. The only way to oppose that sp'rit is the spirit of Jesus. That is the only way to op pose the spirit of trying to get into the position where one part can dic tate terms to tie. rest of the nation or the world. Jesn3 way is for men o rard one another as brothers. Have been trying to get on in this world without recognizing that. Chris tianity has brought brotherhood into the home. It is our task to widen that circle. Our civilization is on the brink of chaos today because that circle isn't wide enough. Treaties and zonea of influence have, been de vised to avert clashes but when on set of men does not regard anothet group as brothers they will disre gard those arrangements. We then get people trying to maintain theii rights and privileges by force. Dividing but Not Producing. "Men who think straight and act practically are turning to religion as the only solution of the situation na tionally and internationally. We have gotten so busy on ihe matter of distributing what we have that we have lost interest in producing enough to divide, so absorbed with the di vision of the fruits of production that production is halted. "The only personality in the world that has ever injfluenced mankind on a large score -to produce 100 per cent without the primary regard for what he is going to get out of it him self is the Lord Jesus Christ. Until that process is multiplied in millions of lives there will be no solution of T . ill , 1 . r ... . ... "'.l"rv- t V SI?- v'V" ZZirtZTL. ZJZ?ZZ . . .

"Big western cilies do tbings in this way, why not w- ? "The Plaza, extended to Main Street, as a small part opposice the City Hall, would make this entire project complete, and splendid, and beautiful, and some more that I can't think of. "As a further suggestion, the west ern side of the Plaza from Joh" street to Bank street, shall be straightened with Middle street, adding a narrow strip to tho Plaza on the west. The present bend in Middle street at this point is bad and ugly. "Then Middle street. from the Plaza to Congress sfcreet, should be widened ten feet, and made into an other Main street fr retail business. In this district the traffic should be one-way traffic on Main street, and the crfher on Middle, thus Main street, from State to Congress, would be come practically a double. Main street, only 150 feet between the two parts. J. W. NORTHROP. Bridgeport, Conn., June 19, 1921. Editor of The Bridgeport Times, Dear Sirs: In your paper last week I noticed several suggestions of in terest to me regarding the way the City of Bridgeport, could use the Plaza, now a public narking place, to the best advantage. I would like to suggest that a building be erected on said site to be large enough to hold all of the city and TJ. S. govern ment offices. I believe a building of this type would not only relieve some of the idie people of this city but would also improve the entrance of the city a great deal. I would also !ike to see at least a small tablet of some sort in honor of Bridgeport's World War heroes. There are a great many towns and cities nearby much smaller than Bridgeport that have erected honor rolls of all sorts for their dead and living heroes who fought so bravely. FRANK L. BRTXNDAGE, 54 Richardson street. SENTIMENT FOR JITNEY SERVICE Continued from Page One.) his clients favored the city's petition for routes with the addition of two others, on connecting the Plaza with rsearasiey rark and Stratfield with Seaview avenue. Alphcus Winters, general manager of the association who- was the spokesman for about 100 manufac turers strongly advised the retaining of jitney service, and particularly the esiaousnment of the new routes as suggested. Neither, he said, would conflict with street railways save for short distances on both ends- Members of the traffic commission who testified for tiie commission and tor their pints included Romeo '.7. Miller, of the Crane Company; Ray mond French, of the Columbia lirapaopnone Company; W. H. Pease of the Bridgeport Brass Company; Elmer E. Hayes, of the Union Metal lic Cartridge Company: P. B. Brill, of the Lake Torpedo Boat Company; and Mr. Perry, of the Harvey Hub bell Company. Representatives of employes and labor organizations who expressed their views included James Rilev. representing 3,000 employes of the u. jb. u.; Joseph C. Ivers, of the Bridgeport Brass Company; and fcamuel Lavit, of the Lake Torpedo xoat company. Samuel Stemlaff, representing the residents of the North End, expressed the approval of ine jitneys in that section. A proposition to take over all the jitney routes in Bridgeport by one corporation came to light when At torney Edward McManus appeared for the American Transit Co. Mr. McManus explained his corpor Ution was for the purpose of takin ve,r l-ey. lines in the city, meir consolidation into consolidation into one operating unit, and to provide a uniform stan dard bus for ideal service. Eighty 'bus owners have already expressed theii willingness to sell their lines for stock, and petitions in favor of tha proposition bearing l'S.OOO signatures were presented. Each of the men who testified were questioned by Attorney Watrous for the trolley company to learn whether the individual views favored the trol ley or jitney in preference to the oth er, and the reason for the prefer ence. -From the testimony of the various men, it was apparent that the jit neys were more generally favored than trolleys. The question of fares was an important contributing ele ment, and another was time. Transit service to the Milford beaches was considered, and here again the jitney was shown in a light superior to the trolleys. The biggest factor in favor of the jitney was their faster service and as explained viSff & boach-es in 20 to 25 minutes while the troHeys average 40 to 50 minutes, and at a fare that was nearly one-half that of the trolleys. When the proposition of trolley versus jHneys had been generally dis cussed, President Biggins opened the hearing on Route A from StratforiS to Ash Creek, with the continuation to Fairfield Beach in the summer time. Attorney Hubbard introduced Jo seph Flint, town clerk o. Fairfield, who told of conditions existing about Fairfield Beach, and the absolute ne cessity for jitney service, "If the jitneys stopped running, the beach woud have to be shut down." he declared. The street railway company fell down flojt, he claimed, when they tried to provide service from the corner of the Boston Post road down Penfield avenue to the beach. The road is a clear stretch of one mile and the beach would be totally nn accessible rer it not for the jitneys.
