TO CLEAN UP NORWOOD
NORWOOD – Clean up clubs among the school children have made one of the 23 articles in the warrant for the town meeting March 6 a burning issue. The article proposes that the town shall collect and dispose of the garbage.
With the great growth of the town, nearly 50 percent increase in 10 years, this has become a necessity. A cleanup club was formed in a large school among the children. The Norwood Woman’s club took up the subject and a member gave a check for $50 to purchase barrels to put the rubbish in.
Then it was found that there was no appropriation to collect the rubbish from these barrels and the Woman’s club appealed to the Norwood Business Men’s association.
The committee on town affairs of that body had the article inserted in the warrant and are urging the matter arguing that cleanup clubs can be formed in all the schools.
To accentuate the interest the civics department of the Woman’s club has offered a prize to the pupil writing the best essay on “How to Make Norwood Cleaner and More Beautiful.”
Free band concerts, new police headquarters. automobile fire apparatus, code of building laws and provision for a better oversight of the town bookkeeping are among the articles expected to incite debate.
The only serious contest in the elections is for selectman, where there are four candidates. Richard E. Oldham, James A. Hartshorn and Samuel M. Winslow of the present board and James W. Conger, who has served one year and was defeated for reelection last year. There is also a contest for assessor for three years. Guido A Stuntzner opposing Richard E. Oldham for reelection.
For constable, papers have been filed for only four, while there are six to be elected, and for park commissioner, only one has filed papers with three to be elected.
