Arlington Sunderland officials stick by their Olms on Highway route j a a j Arlington a town officials Here and in Sunderland Are militantly sticking to their guns on the route they feel proposed four Lane . 7 and its Access Road in these communities should take. A joint committee composed of selectmen and planning boards in each town and spearheaded by a special action group made its wishes known to the state Highway department As Early As april 22, nearly a week before Public hearings in Bennington and Manchester. Its recommendations were reiterated at the hearings and according to Leon Cole of Sunderland chairman of the action group the committee continues to stand United behind its original proposals. According to Cole the number of signatures pm a new petition now in circulation together with favourable comments by signatories show the joint committee s recommendations have a the Large and emphatic backing of All the citizenry of Arlington and Sunderland the committee is not in favor of the Access Road most recently proposed by the state Highway department. This would run in a straight line from old . 7 at Macauley Bridge near the Lawrence Pratt Home to a Point on the four Lane Highway East of Chiselville. Instead the committee claims any Access Road should come from the suggested a Slinde line Quot route Southeast of Arlington. According to the committee s proposal it would Cross Maple Hill Road property of mrs. Guy Twitchell coming onto the East Arlington Road in the Vicinity of the Arthur Johnson place. Here the committee would offer the Highway department a Choice a to place Road Access to old . 7 either North or South of the cemetery Road.

However she said they were Back in the same business april 29. Worth a thousand ism these were the words of William Bell teacher at bus and advisor of the student Council sponsor of what Bell termed a one of the most successful dances Quot Ever conducted at the school. Students from Arlington North Bennington and Bennington schools also attended the dance. Five out of six students agreed with Bell but with the qualification that computerized matchmaking is merely a a gimmick Quot to draw a crowd and get things going. It s far from perfect As a scientific method for cooking up instance Romance they say. James Henry had two matches but he said he was unable to find either one in the mob scene that preceded the dance. He added however that there were plenty of girls and he was never wanting for a dance partner. David Ingraham said he had two matches but the first one not a very the second. He confessed a was Only a Little closer but far from Lee Sendra had two matches. He termed himself a contented Quot with one of them. Mistakes were frequent in physical characteristics.

By that time most of the numbers were gone she said and the dancers had a paired when a boy found a girl he liked she said he would take her card and put it in his pocket to make sure she did t run off with another number.

It would destroy the least amount of property of any route along the line. And from an engineering standpoint it is an easier route because of the terrain. A straight line Access from East of Chiselville to the Macauley Bridge would prove a terribly destructive Quot from a Sunderland standpoint and eventually from Arlington s standpoint Cole said.

More than 20 valuable properties would be entirely destroyed and Many others seriously damaged.
