erected.
The program was opened with the
song Alma Mater, followed by the
dramatization of "Getting Ready for
Graduation at Read School." The
characters taking part in the play
were: Helen Day. Mildred Le Boeur,

Tight. 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.

I would extend "the Plaza, between
Ftate and Bank streets up to Main
street. giving a park and a wide

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

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

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.

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.

Tomorrow morning at 7:30 o'clock
the graduating class of St. Charies"
parochial school will assist at mass
at St. Charles' church and receive
Holy COT:tmunion in a body. Follow
ing mass which will be offered up by
the rector, Rev. P. J. McGivney, the
graduates will receive their diplomas.
The exercises will be devoid of
outward display, it being the judg
ment of Father McGivney that in
view of the lack of employment of
so many it would be a hardship to
ask their parents to go to the ex
pense of fitting out their children in
special cos.umes. In addition the
parishoners are responding loyalky
to the new convent fund and their
Trastor is actuated by a desire to
make their burden as light as possi
ble. The parish - school will close this
afternoon for the summer holidays.
The graduates are: Margaret Irene
