NORWOOD, Dec 7—The meeting of the Norwood business association last evening, in Odd Fellows’ hall, was a busy one In local affairs, many matters of importance coming up. A turkey supper was enjoyed before the meeting. Chairman Frederic Rea of the committee on trees recommended that the association ask the town at the next town meeting to appropriate $500 to fight the browntail moth, and this was voted. The matter of holding an annual “ladies’ night” will be submitted to a postal-card vote.

Chairman George A. Miller of the committee on public schools reported that the town needed a new high school building and a new graded school in the Balch district, and would soon need a building to replace the Everett school.

Chairman James M. Folan of the hospital committee made a report embodying recommendations for a town hospital, and stated that the committee had had much encouragement from the citizens of Norwood and the neighboring towns, as well as the formal written endorsement of the Norwood physicians. He gave figures to show that a hospital could be established and carried on here. His report was accepted as a report of progress.

Chief of Police James W. Lavers was present and was called on for remarks by Pres George Harding Smith.
