SECOND IS HIK MORNING CALL, Allrntown, Pa.. Friday, Mar. 26, 1963 Palmer Petition Dug Up Again Firemen Truce Appears at End A petition asking for the abo Robert Rogers is the elected chief of the fire company. Anthony Fimiano, fire company president, said last night that 1,500 signatures have been entered on the petitions to date, but that a goal of 3,000 is being sought. The volunteer firemen discontinued circulating the petition when a temporary truce was effected Feb. 26 between the supervisors and the fire company. One of the agreements of the truce was that the township would store its fire engine in the fire company's quarters at 27th and Dearborn streets under a lease agreement. The fire company refused to ratify this point in the agree-j ment and was then given until! March 31 to approve the lease j or the township would refuse to j pay the utility bills for the en-: gine room. The fire company has taken i no steps to ratify the agree-1 ment, and the township has! been keeping its fire engine in a private garage. ' Fimiano said the fire compa- ny men are disturbed about the ill will now existing and that they will present their grievances to the supervisors at their meeting on April 5. He charged that the supervisors "are doing what they want to do without taking into account what the township residents want." Regarding the lease agreement for storage of the fire truck, Fimiano said the fire company is "well able to pay the small bill for heat, light and telephone" which the township paid for storing the vehicle. lition of the recently - created Palmer Township Fire Department is going back into circulation this week. The petition is the same one which was first circulated last month when the townshiD board of supervisors created the fire department and named Reno Buss as chief. The Palmer Township Fire Co., a volunteer unit, objected to this arrangement and asked that it be the sole firefighting organization in the township. tf s ' C ; Vf fir - H , -'at?.r ill - :'H I ; I v- ti - - i f v-n wr X'" if I ' ' ; Ik : : 'UPSEY DAISY' A capacity crowd at Northamp- ton Junior High School watched last night as James McCafferty, Timothy Usher, top and bottom,' Bank Executive SpeaksThursday John R.

Robert Cessna, Donald Cul-len, Joel Fabiani and James Valentine gave some people and some things a satirical examination in 23 well-conceived and well-executed sketches. A Grace Hall audience of about 2,200 persons demonstrated its appreciation with laughter and applause. Striking close to home in the opening scene, - a prospective visitor to the United States is Selma. The over-all feeling, he noted, was the great trust the people had in God and the constitutional powers given to them. In speaking of the differences between the situation in the South and the situation in the North, he explained that in the North, the Negro does have the laws on his side, but they are not enforced. But in the South, the Negro keeps rejoicing in the basic things they really don't have at all, he said. ' "No one has developed an answer to the situation," he claimed. He expressed the belief that "so many people are not informed. It's terribly important for people, wherever they are, to stand up for what they really believe."

William P. Hogan, Easton attorney, made the request on behalf of his client, Charles Cat-alano of Elmont, N. Y., who proposes to build garden given a light-hearted briefing on what to expect, including a warning that no visa will be issued unless he can sing the "Star Spangled Banner." There were brief glimpses of war, with the British solider on the battlefield contrasted with the citizen at home who worries only about progress of his chrysanthemums. Classical music received a humorous jab as a would-be concert pianist mixed his more typical fare with exerpts from "chop sticks" and "Hernando's Hideaway." Politics did not escape unscathed and even the venerable British philosopher Bertrand Russell received a light going over. The satire on philosophy included the whimsical definition of a paraphilosopher as one "whose feet are not on the ground."

The measure, which was passed on first reading by coun- apartments St. tract. on a W. Lafayette A proposed zoning ordinance calls for 3,200 square feet of space for each dwelling unit. Hogan said 2,500 square feet should suffice for purposes of safety and health, and added that the economics and feas-i ibility of the project are integrally related to the square foot requirements. "A 3,200 square foot figure would mean working away from a profit margin," Hogan said. He asked the councilmen to consider the footage of . their own properties and to consider the greater benefit from land-use with an apartment project as opposed to a single-dwelling development. " Councilman Fred L. Ashton commented that he did not think any councilmen live in a low-density zone.
