As chairman of the stut' committee, Sperry was instrumental in recommending a change from the present three-man Board of Selectmen to a five-man board and the hiring of a chief administrtive officer. The Charter Commission was ter. Only in exceptional places such as Earth, does matter settle down into solids, liquids, and gases. On Earth plasmas appear in the visible path of a bolt of lightning, neon and fluorescent lamps, electric arcs, the exhaust of jet and rocket engines, and in the fireball of a hydrogen bomb. The work under way seeks to control these thermonuclear re lectmen last week in hopes the changes could be arranged be- tween now and the party caucuses scheduled for early August. Robert Ostergren Jr., has been named by the selectmen to replace Sperry on the commission. Ostergren is chairman of the Board of Finance. The commission held its first organizational meeting Thursday night and elected Miner Kretzmer Jr., as chairman, with Glenn Wood, co-chairman. Mrs. Merwin Vile will serve as secretary Other members of the com mission are Rudolph Yaros and Anthony Flannery. The group did not begin a draft of the proposed charter, but did reaffirm the commission's original charge by the selectmen to contain its activities to the change in the Board of Selectmen and the administrator. Despite the suggested enlargement of the Board of Se lectmen to a seven or nine: member board, the commission felt it could not deviate from the restrictions imposed, for fear of creating an undesirable image for the voters, who expect the change from the three to five-man board. The suggestions for board enlargement were made at a public hearing Monday. The commission plans to meet again Tuesday at 8 p.m. at the junior high school, and, according to Kretzmer, the members are hopeful of leaving the meeting with a rough draft of a town charter. Kretzmer said that Richard Lafferty, director of municipal government services for the Connecticut Public Expenditure Council, and Edwin Wynne, town attorney, will attend the meeting. Wilbur Guile, a local trash collector, has complained to the Board of Selectmen that he is "being discriminated against" The sewer mains work included Adorno Drive and two houses on Spring St. First Selectman John B.
