NORWOOD, March 2 — “The Norwood Better Business Commission” was created by unanimous vote last evening at the monthly meeting of the Norwood Board of Trade in Social Hall.

The purpose of the new commission seeks to establish more truthful advertising. It provides also for the supervision, to the extent of giving its sanction. of solicitors for advertising and for fund contributions and also of peddlers in Norwood, thus requiring, so far as local business men are concerned, these persons to obtain a permit from the commission before Norwood business men will contribute or do business with them.

Gladwin Nead, chairman, was toastmaster and presided at the meeting. “The Dawes Plan“ was discussed by Rolland Boyden, former president of the Boston Chamber of Commerce.
