Good Evening! It was surprising indeed to look up yesterday afternoon at the clock in the old Berkshire Mill anc find it operating once again! This morning it still shows the time but of course it's not sounding off. We checked with Owen McAndrews one of the owners, who says he didn't wind it but maybe partner Al Ostroski, who's been doing some demolition work at the site, did. Al was busy at his station last night and didn't get around to commenting despite a considerable wait on an open, forgotten telephone line. * * * The heavy grass and weeds along the railroad right of way behind Pleasant Street, which one can see, from Park Street, have been cub down by the Street De partment Workers in line with the request of the Adams Cleanup Committee. The area looks much more presentable., * * * And the Street Department gave first service to Melrose Street yesterday where a sinking slab of sidewalk concrete had been reported. Not only did that one get fixed, but two others in bad shape were ripped out and replaced. * * * We hear from the bos* this morning that a local man currently paddling his way along Canadian Lakes with the Explorer Scouts of Post 38 is due for a surprise when he returns to town next week. Bernard J. Fryc, the post advisor, has been appointed a junior high school teacher by the Southern Berkshire Regional School District. Town Calendar Tonight ST. MICHAEL SOCIETY. Public whist party.

Grace M. tenner — J-VJ4* To Road Closings Unexpected Opposition Voiced at Road Hearing By Helen Renner Pownal Selectmen encountem unexpected opposition from sever al sources yesterday afternoon a ,wo hearings on the closing of separate sections of unused town lighways. The Selectmen signified their ntention of closing a 14-mile section of town highway formerly mown as Town Highway No. 4 in 'ownal Center. The stretch in question directly parallels the pre sent Town Highway No. 4, which runs from the Barber's Lake Roac o the Niles School District, and became superfluous a few years ago when the road was relocates o give a better access and easier maintenance. Property owners concerned by he road closing were Zuron Huse tliss Rose Todd, George Bishop and Mrs. Irene Petilt. Fear Cut-Off The Huse and Todd families ob- ected to the road closing since hey felt permanent closing of the •ight of way would cut them ofi 'rom a right of way to the newly •e-Iocated town highway. Other ibjeclions were reported to be un, •ler consideration, but were not voiced yesterday. The Selectmen told the objectors bat if their final decision, which uust be made within 60-days, was 0 close the road, the affected roperty owners would be given Ignis of way through the section 1 question so that their properties •ould not be cut off from the town oads. The Selectmen made no deci- ions yesterday, preferring to xjstpone action to see what plans ould be made, which might be lore agreeable to all parties con- erned. In the second hearing, concern- ng the proposed closing of the so ailed Hemlock Hill Road or Town liglnvay No. 14 in the Northwest ection of tlie town, unexpected op- wsition was voiced by Ernest Jurdick Jr., who owns a farm tvith some acreage bordering on part of tlie road in question. Mr. anci Mrs. Robert Skripak r lio own a summer home and ome acres of land at the end of road in question, and who were resent to urge the closing of the oad, were represented by Mar- Two-Point Opposition Mr. Burdick based his opposi lion on two points: 1. that if the road is closed part of his lane which now borders the town highway, would then be less valuable since building lots without access to a town road are undesirable ind 2. that once the road is closed the camp owners would then posl the area and townspeople would lose a desirable hunting and fishing location, and also neighbor hood youngsters would no longer be allowed the use of the swimming pool. The Skripaks offered Mr. Burdick formal rights of way to his fields which would be cut off bj the road's closing and offered to extend the rights of way to any purchasers of the building lots in Ihe seclions. They also said fhe> hacl no wish lo exclude local persons from using Ihe hunting anc fishing privileges in tlie area or [he children from tlie swimming pool, but would only wish to keep out undesirable strangers or pre vent the use of tile grounds in :heir absence. The Selectmen again made no decision on the closing, but did indicate tiiat their decision would consider the exchange of ideas brought forth by the bearing. Might Close Part The board indicated they would study the matter further and might only consider closing a part of the road, which is nearly two miles in length and at present almost impassable in much of its course. The Selectmen stated they lad felt closing the road might save the town some money, since making it passable for cars year around would be expensive and entail major construction. Under Vermont law, all interested parties must be informed of the decision of the board within sixty days of yesterday's hearing. The Selectmen headed by chair man Norman R. Strobridge indicated they planned to study the matter further and then send formal notice of their decisions to the parties concerned. A. Coleman Mason and Arthur E. George sat with Mr. Strobridge on the hearing and Road Commissioner Richard Pudvar also discussed some aspects of the situation with the interested parties during the aller- Williamstown News Off!e»: 89 Spring St. Tel.

Also pressing for the road clo- ing was Mrs. Bessie Moore, who ReV. MfS. King Iso owns a cottage and .some —. ^ n i. ores at the end of the road. I 0 bO OP KadlO The Skripaks and Mrs. Moore ated Ihe road used now by hun- ers, and picnickers who usually nded up in their front yards to irn around, and who frequently uilt unauthorized fires, strewed irbage around the lawns and osed the swimming pool the fam- ies have built nearby for private se. Tlie Skripak home was also eported to have been broken into hen they were not there. The rimilies also pointed out certain angerous aspects of the road as now stands. The Rev. Isabel G. King, will be the guest speaker on the 9 o'clock morning devotions over radio station WMNB, North Adams, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. The Rev. Mrs. King was formerly pastor of the Pownal Center Community Church, until ill health forced her retirement last winter.

The town of Williamslown was ike the eye of a hurricane last night — quiet after the storm of activity centering around Thursday's night's break al the Howard Johivson Restaurant. In contrast to the gun-point arrest of two would-be safe-breakers which kept police operating at high speed from about 1.30 a.m. yesterday, last night's blotter was' a tolsl blank. No burglaries, no disturbances, no squabbles, no accidents, not even a scraped fender disturbed the peace of Ihe Police Department. The police aren't complaining, in fact they're happy as can be to have a night away from crime. Only one thing bothers them — they're wondering whether they're experiencing the quiet after the storm or the calm which frequently pervades before the holocaust.

Most motels in the area are reported to he near capacity and restaurants are feeling the results of the crowds of golf enthusiasts.
