Tappe to judiciously elect Talent that fit Well the various parts they Are assigned to. In the matter of Solo and speciality work in the casting or parts the director has evidently made some very excellent selections judging from the manner the Talent responds to the rehearsal of their parts. When parts were first assigned the director later found it necessary to change characters to parts his experienced judgement found they would be More successful in rendering. These changes have happily been met with the players producing Roost Gratifying results which augurs Well for the Success of the production. Without doubt the rehearsals indicate so far that the people of Bristol will receive the Surprise of their live when a cheer up is presented by this towns Young folks in whom development of will be brought to the prising degree. Despite the appearance of the Ballet chorus in abbreviated costumes it is an assured fact that no feature of this musical revue.

William Boyd and daughter Are spending the thanks giving holidays with their Daugh ter or. And mrs. Zimmerman of my Carmel formerly of Bristol. A cheer up a will cheer you up or. Ami mrs. Frank Jenks of 610 Bath Street entertained the Holmes Burg sewing and card club at their Home on tuesday evening. Why not offer Uncle Sam $1.00 or some like amount for the Harriman schoolhouse the streets of that town the sewers Ami water connections and Annex Harriman to Bristol make it a part of the Borough and charge those who Purchase Homes there at the same ratio of tax a3 now charged Bristol property own Els. The foregoing is not an idea of the Independent nor of ifs editor it emanated from the brain of one of the most progressive of Bristol s Young business men. It is an excellent one and should be acted upon by tile Borough authorities and this action should he taken at once before the township authorities i t in their Fine work to take Over these holdings of the government which the latter vill he forced to let go of if they care to sell their property As they claim to be anxious to do. No Small investor is going to Purchase a Home in Harriman and pay anywhere near the Price these Homes would ordinarily be Worth unless they Are reasonably assured that they vill be Able to get continued water and sewerage service. If the government Sells the houses they will have no further use for the at Rte to and school the. Residents of Bristol and the future residents of the Tow site. Have done their share toward paying the War time taxes from which this Village was built the people Ai Large in the country can not be Given the direct Benefit of the school streets and sewers so Why not give the greater number who can Benefit local residents an Opportunity to reap any Benefit that May accrue. The taking Over of this school would solve the local school room congestion scholars from the upper Section of the town could be accommodated there and Tho present High school building could he denied entirely to High school classes thus the High school problem would also be solved for the time being. Tho children who Are now attending Harriman school from the township could be cared for during tin balance of the present term and before the opening of the next term there is every indication that there will be a new school built in Edgely and also one in Croydon. Now then to bring the foregoing about it w ill he necessary for every latent Talent j Cit Izen and tax payer in Bristol to fore to a sir interest themselves in the project. Do not procrastinate which is the usual fault with folks of this town who always leave it to the other fellow to do the work but Start right out now and put this Over. Visit your councilman and Tell him in terms unqualified that you favor the movement of annexing the neighbouring town and insist that he do his utmost to convince the Powers of the Borough that this is the advantageous thing to do then write to congressman Watson Ami ask that he use his influence with whatever committees will have handling of this matter and see that the proposition is pushed through to a conclusion. This can be put Over if the people All do their share towards bringing it about it is not a one Man Job i but is work for the entire voting personal of the Community. There May he minor objections to the proposition that the Independent has not foreseen the annexing of the Tow site May he an impossibility. But a nothing ventured nothing i won a May he Palieri Here and the whole proposition is Worth at least a fait trial. Keep before you in pressing this project Home that the government in the first place will not he Able to sell their houses unless some sort of a functioning Community is established to take care of the Public works of the pretty Little Village North of Bristol no investor will put out Good Money for a Home that May and May not continue to have sewer connections and water. Tho government will he forced to sae if fice their Public works to someone and Why not let Bristol reap the gain even though there May be some slight difficulty in bringing about the general end aimed at by this article there arc men in this Community who Are powerful enough to surmount minor obstacles and it is the duty of the local citizens to prove to these men that they Are anxious to take into the Borough limits the adjoining Community with j its improvements. Be a progressive and in future years Pride yourself on having brought about this expansion which i will mean much for Bristol. The i w a to bring this about is to keen everlastingly at the Job and right out today to promote it. Start
