Water (Continued from Tage 2) another line was built through Lodl, Garfield, Hasbrouck Heights, Wood Ridge, Rutherford and south to Newark. Other trolley lines came directly Into Rutherford from the east and an inter urban electric railroad ran from Paterson through FUdgewood as far north as Suffern. Each new line opened' Bergen County to new development and each new development needed water. By 1900, Hackensack Water Co. had what seemed an unlimited potential if its leaders could gauge the growth rate accurately and maintain supplies to meet demand. One must hear the huge machines uprooting trees for new reservoirs; see the hundreds of sweating men straining in deep trenches; hear the hum of giant pumps and the splash of clear, cold river water to catch the real drama of a water supplier racing to keep up with a county just beginning to taste the power of growth. Between 1890-1910, Hudson County doubled its population and Bergen increased at a whopping 300 percent. The water company moved its lines north into Hillsdale, Harrington Park and Norwood while expanding mains in towns already serviced. The Erie railroad praised Bergen as "the mecca of suburban dwellers," asserting those who moved there would have "their children and their children's children rise up and call them blessed." Came the booming '20s and tens of thousands of newcomers streamed into Bergen, all demanding water for their homes, Industries, newly-built country clubs. Hoboken shook loose of Hackensack Water Co. in 1923; Bayonne sought to lay claim to the Ramapo River and was repulsed; but in the main, Hackensack was kept loroufh tl lirgcnilild NOTICI TO IADIO COMMUNICATIONS IQUIPMtNT MAINTINANCI AND1IIVICI CONTtACTOtS NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that Moled bid will he received by the Borough Council of the lorough el tergenfielrj at tha emmklpal building, 191 North Woitiireie Aremie, ergerifield.

In Englewood, Rldgewood, and Hackensack, young men In Brooks suits and young girls in polo coats motored gaily over newly laid roads to the Field or Country Club in expensive automobiles. Bergen County's huge middle class was beginning to taste some of the pleasures formerly reserved for the wealthy few. Country clubs were built in numbers. Solid Bergenites of the cut which would have been found at a Wednesday prayer meeting ten or 20 years earlier, now more likely spent their evenings at the theater, and many Jersey Dutchmen whose parents had supped on milk and mush thought it modern to adopt the morals of the idle rich. The fast set of Bergen, according to Leiby, spent Saturday nights dining and dancing at local "road houses" including the Allendale Inn, the Blue Bird at Cedar Lane in Teaneck, Areola Manor in Paramus, and Fort Lee's racy Villa Gichard. While a number of municipalities in northwest Bergen including Ridge-wood, Glen Rock, Midland Park, Wyckoff, Allendale, and Franklin Lakes met their water needs from private wells, the rest of the county looked to Hackensack Water Co. for water.

The 20-game playing season, to begin March 28, will break the first week of July because of hot weather, then resume in September, with the season ending in November. The team will practice indoors during the off months, Mast said. The Paramus Arsenals squad is composed of adults, 17 and up. Gorman said the Recreation Commission supports the team because soccer is a coming national sport. His department financially backs a junior soccer team in the borough, which also competes with teams from other municipalities. The junior , competition, under the direction of Kurt Goldschmidt, volunteer coach, is a continuing program in the borough, he said, organized about four years ago. n sn Sunshine Grahams Crackers MOIST CAT FOOD Whisker Lichins Wipe 'N Dipe VaMllrtt Intenalva Car wipe;pipe oi5o JJJJ i 8-OZ.
