Danger in Leaving Telltale
Signs You're On Vacation
Unless vacationists close up their
houses" properly before leaving
town, they may return ' home to
trouble, according- to the warning
of C. Bader Brouilette, vice presi
dent of the Automobile Club otf
Hartford, an affiliate of the Amer
ican Automobile Association.
""It's a grood idea to take extra
precautions to protect your house
against fire, burglary and damage
from water and vermin, before, you
take off for the open road," Mr.
Brouilette said. "You should ask
a neighbor to pick up any circu

Camp Bennett was opened Sat
urday with more than seventy-five
youngsters from all over the State
taking part .in the activities on
the first day.
Amid 'the hustle and bustle of
opening day the kids were ex
tremely joyous that another camp
ing season had begun. There were
beds to be moved and suitcases to
be stored into well-kept cabins
but with all the work to be done,
the kids were willing to pitch B
so that they might settle down to
the business of camping as soon
as possible.
yr the first time in its fifteen
yers, the camp is now on a co-ed
system. The girls are now occupy-
Ing the cabins on the hill and most
"of the boys are living in the new
est building at the camp a huge
lars or newspapers which may
have been tossed on your - porch.
These announce , to. all the world
including burglars and vandals,
that no one is home."
The AAA Club official suggested
that milk and newspapers be
stopped before the family leaves
for its vacation. He said also that
shades should not be drawn, nor
should there be any note on the
door; to let callers know you are
away. All windows and doors
should be locked securely, he said,
and it's a bad practice to leave ; a
cabin set across the lake and tar
enough back in the woods to make
their camp life both interesting
and exciting. This new house for
the boys. has a capacity of thirty
and is called the "House of Tar
zan." The road leading up to Bennett
is in good condition and apple
trees in the camp itself are laden
with enough apples to gladden the
heart of any young camper. The
cherries are ripening and the mul
berry trees are preparing them
selves for the eager boys who will
rob them of their fruits. The Me
morial Gardens with the rose ar
bor and cedar trees have been cul
tivated into three huge star-shapad
flower beds and the vegetable gar
den is ripening in beautiful fash
ion in spite of the dry weather..

"If our house is to stay closad

officialr'said, "you . should open the

a good idea to remove vases, milk
bottles and glasse from window
sills or other places where they
may, act as magnifiers of thè sun's
rays and start fires. Furthermore,
you should never leave any oily
rags, or rubbish laying around.
These - also start - fires some
times." Mr; Brouilette recommended
that all woolen clothing and blan
kets be stored away in moth proof
closets, and that the piano be
closed, after moth balls -are scat
tered in it.
"If you take these precautions,
