The hoard of adjustment took under advisement Monday afternoon tlie application ot the Standard Oil company for permission to erect a gasoline tilling station on South Federal avenue and Second street, following a hearing held at the city hall. Three groups of property owners in the South Federal avenue district appeared in opposition to the granting of the permit, which was refused by II. L. Brown, building commissioner, under a city ordinance, prohibiting the : erection- of gasoline stations within 200 feet of a theater. , . , At the conclusion of the testimony and arguments by' attorneys at the hearing the board decided to await the submission of authorities before acting, on the appeal of the oil company in what la without a doubt the hardest fought case that body has had before it since the city adopted the planning and zon ing ordinance. Dibble Legal Advisor. In its legal ruling the board will be governed by the advice of City Solicitor Lester Dibble, who sat in at the hearing. Probably the first question to he decided will be the qualifications of Mier Wolf, one of the board members, to vot*. The right of Mr. Wolf to sit on the board was challenged by the Standard Oil company attorney on tlie grounds that he had signed a pe- ition and generally manifested his opposition to the granting of the jermit. Mr. Wolf stated that he had vithdrawn his opposition to the natter. His name was not among the signers of a petition, which ame before the board as evidence urlng the hearing. Whether Mr. ·Volf is allowed to vote may have onsiderable bearing on the out- ome of the case. With A. J. Feeney ot present, only four members of he board sat In on the hearing. May Be Unanimous, Three votes are necessary for a lecision. If Mr. Wolf ia disquali- ied it will mean the remaining members of the board, will have to be unanimous in their findings In order to come to a decision. Some significance is attached to the fact that S. M. Hoyt, another choice of the "new deal" council made his initial appearance at the Monday afternoon' hearing following his appointment In the morn- ng. R. E. Robertson, county engi- leer, whose place Mr. Hoyt took, had not heard of th'e replacement and came to attend the meeting. He was informed that he was no longei a member of the board. It la generally recognized that the controlling group of the city administration ia opposed to deviating from the ordinance In this particular case so should the matter finally. come before the council from the board of adjustment a refusal to grant the permit is almost certain. Burns Objector. Councilman J. J. Burns appealed as one of-the objectors to. the erec tion of the gasoline station across the street from Strand theater That Mr. Burns has two other councilmen with him on this matter is regarded as a certainty. L. S. Thompson and F. G. Duf field, the latter acting as chairman of this meeting, are members of th( board on appointments of ad ministrations. What their attitud is on the case has not been dls closed. ' . ' ; The contention of the property owners on South Federal avenu who opposed the granting- of th permit wag that the placing of a service station on Second atree would break the continuity of th retail section. Thia opposition was particularly voiced by those who had property south of Second street They also contended there would be an increased hazard created. Upheld by Court. As evidence that the 200 feet rul governing the placing of gasolin stations in the proximity of school and theaters had been abrogated be fore and that the present applica tion was not without precedence John . Shipley, attorney for th Standard Oil company, cited th case of the Champlin station on South Federal avenue and Nineteenth street, which is across th street from the Jackson school. Th action of the board In granting tha Avoid Eyestrain -- Brainstrain Remember, 90% of everything you do depends'upon eyesight. Your very existence, if you please, la answerable to the kind and quality of your vision. Yet, what lg more abused and neglected? Better by far for you to leave all else to the last--that coat or suit, dress or automobile. Little do they matter without good eyesgiht and brain comfort to enjoy them. Eyestrain is brainstrain--fast Increasing to the people of this age. Many tmnatural conditions--Hying in desperr ation and exhaustion. Your EYES are your ALL. SEE TO LIVE! LIVE TO SEE! My service to humanity--suffering from eye strain--many with misfit glasses, is reasonable and dependable. No experimenting--' no guessing. The conscientious eyesight--glasses service with economy.

According to the section of the ordinance under which .the plaintiff seeks to be given a permit it is nee-. easary for the Standard Oil company .to. show that public safety, health and welfare will be secured :by the erection of.vthe gasoline station, Mr.'Senneff argued. . ' ' . D. H. jFitzpatrick,' who represented J. A. Sullivan,'Elizabeth StanEoh "and the Massachusetts Alutua! Life Insurance company, other objectors, argued that If the Standard Oil company is released from the regulation of the ordinance in this in- stance, all others who seek building permits on a similar basis will likewise be released. N. Levlnson appeared at the hearing as .a representative of Sam Raizes and William Alter. Submission of authorities and final disposition of the matter is expected to take several days. Maine attracted the. interest of explorers early in the sixteenth century. Giovanni da Verrazano sailed down thu coast in 1524. INCREASE SHOWN IN CIRCULATION OF LIBRARY HERE Steps Taken by Board of Trustees to Handle Larger Volume. At tho meeting of tho board of trustees of the M\son City public library Monday evening-, tho matter of taking care of the Increasing volume of work was discussed. Since, with the reduced budget, additional help seems out of the question, the board cast about for methods of reducing clerical work. Tlie self charging: system was discussed, but |m- trons as a rule do not like it, according to reports from libraries where it has been Installed. There were seven days at the main library In; November when the circulation \yas more than 1,000 books a. dayl Of course that means that approximately 2,000 books were handled since practically aa many books come, in as go out. Must Present Cards. When it ia busy, stopping to look up numbers for patrons slows up the work at the desk considerably. After some discussion the board decided that beginning Jan. 1, 1934, patrons can borrow books only on presentation of library cards. If a person ia down town and has forgotten his card, he may have a duplicate for 5 cents so that no real hardship will be worked to any patron who actually needs a book or wishes one to enjoy. Students have been improving about carrying their library cards,' Miss Lydia M. Barrette reported. For two years fiction has not been charged to students without a card although up to the present numbers have been looked up for books for school work. Sixty-one per cent of" the books circulated this month were fiction. Last year 63 per cent of the circulation was fiction. The gain of two per cent in non-fiction is an indication of the interest people are SIN PAYS HIGH WAGE Thero have been no cuts in tlie wages of sin,.tho Rev. W. Curry Mavis, evangelist, declared in his sermon at the Good Will mission, 1GS1 Monroe a v e n u e northwest. Revival meetings nt the mission started si week ago nnd will continue over Sunday. taking in the problems of the day and of study along vocational lines permitted by increased leisure. 217 New Borrowers. There were 217 new adult borrowers registered in November and 169 children, 386, new borrowers in all. Some 30 of these were non-residents who paid for their cards. There were 35,889 books circulated in November, a gain of 2,351. There .wag a large gain at main library, the children's room having been a very busy place on account of book week activities and the following stations registered increased circulation: Drama shop, I. O. O. F. home, Jefferson school, Mercy hospital, South Library station, Washington school and Garfield school. It is hoped by the trustees that the possibility of reducing clerical work by insisting on having cards presented by borrowers checking out books will allow the staff more time to find the books they need.
