A feature of the Woman’s Club meeting was a discussion of local matters by the Civics Committee. Among the matters brought up were the control of mosquitoes, the project to give all houses in town numbers, and the equalization bill requiring an equal education for all school children in the state. Also announced was the candidacy for the school board of Mrs. Eleanor Meisse. She was a Middlebury graduate, a mathematician and the mother of three children enrolled in the local schools. She was running to fill the vacancy which occurred when Mrs. Mildred H. Russell resigned from the Board.
