It has been proven that the northwest corner of King's Highway and Tanner street is the coldest spot ln Haddonfield. Experiments have been mac. by Haddonfleld's police force to reach a verdict, but when Haddonfield cops set out to prove somethi- -well, something usually happenr. During the last few weeks of cold westher the husky policemen r-'io work the traffic light on tb corner have complained that the present "open air traffic booth" probably would be the deaith of them before the winter is over. Then Chief Baxter suggested that a test be made to find out whether .it really was cold enough there for a 'traffic booth. Big Joe Briggs. who stands a good six-foot-seven-inches in his leather boots, admitted that he felt cold there, but Chief Baxter was hard to convince. Therefore, it was necessary that he try it himself. The result? Baxter felt the cold and he Is reported to have said : "Even Commander Byrd couldn't work the light her ." - So the police have Instructed Bill Mackin, Haddonfield fireman, who wields a mean hammer and si -, to build a booth that will present a per- manent red stop signal to the chilly winds. The new structure, which will contain a heater and,- possibly a hardwood floor, will greet the eyes of the Haddonfield populace within the -.ext tew says. MIZPAH LODGE TO HOLD CHARITY BALL JAN. 22 .

K. Instructions havs been given by the State Highway Commission to open to traffic tomorrow the new 'bridge spanning tha Raritan river on Route 39 between New Brunswick and Raritan township. This structure, which Is an important link In the express highway from the Holland Tunnel at Jersey City to Trenton and CaSiden, represents the most advanced ideas ln road construction. The new thoroughfare will permit transcontinental and local traffic to avoid the present Lincoln Highwsy which follows the winding lines of the old Indian trail and passes through municipal centres of congestion. - - The distance from Trenton to the Holland Tunnel is now 60 miles but the stralghter alignment of Route 26 to New "Brunswick and thence to Jer-ey .City, by way of Route 29 will clip five and one-half miles from the distance. The saving of time will be the more appreciable for the reason that 'the new road from Trenton to Jersey City is over practically an entirely new right of way and will permit the greater use of the viaduct sections near the Newark Airport and the depressed roadway through Jersey City. The completion of the $1,500,000 bridge over the Raritan has been one of the major improvements needed for the opening of the newly built section of Route 28. The work on the new route through Elizabeth and an underpass of the B. ft O. tracks on Edgar road in Linden will not be finished until the early part of next summer. Traffic now, however, can use the new Route 3 which runs directly into Edgar road In Linden and then follows Washington street to Broad street to Elizabeth avenue to Spring street In Elizabeth where the new Route 28 can again be picked up for the run through Newark, near the airport. Concrete has been laid to the full width of 29 feet near the Raritan river bridge in New Brunswick, but the shoulder "Work and guard rails have not been completed as yet. Highway Commissioner Abraham Jelin, who resides in New Brunswick, directed that caution signs be placed along tbat particular section of the thoroughfare. From here the road is finished and open as far as . the overpass over the shore road near Woodbridge, where a Camden9 s Population 1797 100 Years Ago; Now 145,386 Time with Its changes makes possible things now that could not be done 100 years ago. One hundred years ago there was a man ln Camden who did -something that could not be duplicated today which is a manner of pointing out the remarkable growth of Camden. t- . An old newspaper of December $, 1829, has been unearthed in which appears an account of Camden's population at that time. The story was written by a man who declared tbat he ' visited almost every family . ln Camden. To. visit every home in Camden today would mean almbst 80,000 visits! . The unknown writer visited almost $11 families, which consisted of "1797 souls." Today the population of Camden, according to a recent survey! Is 145,386. ' Tha unknown writer also knew what he was writing about. "Time," he said, "cannot be far djs-tant when this city will rapidly increase in population and become an ornament to tha State in which It is situated.. -.and capitalists would find it for their Interest to turn their attention to tbis place." " His prediction was well founded. The centre of the world's radio Industry came to Camden but a mapth - Speed Road Completed; very elaborate eonstuntion establish! connection between the two routes, This construction ia known as the "Cloverleaf" and only right turns are permitted In changing from one route to the other so that there is no interference with traffic. Proper signs will be placed by the highway depart' ment to show how the turns ars to be made. ' For Instance, if one comes from Elizabeth over the new routs and wishes to change to the shore road for Perth Amboy, it will be necessary to cross the shore road on tha overpass, then make a circle to the right and ease into the traffic coming from Kanway. Coming from Perth Amboy over the shore road and wishing to enter the Sew route to go to Metucheh or points south, the motorist first must pass under the new route, then turn into the right circle that takes him up to the elevation and into the southbound traffic lane. If he turns right before the underpass he will enter Route 39, northbound. While this all seems rathei complicated, motorists will find it simple If they keep In mind that only right turns can be made in changing from one road to another. STETSON, U. S. MINISTER TO POLAND, QUITS POST John B. Stetson, Jr., of Oak Lane, Pa., well known manufacturer, has resigned as Unlnted States minister to Poland, according to Washington dispatches today, and will be succeeded by Alexander P. Moore, of Pittsburgh, now ambassador to Peru. Stetson, son of the lata John B. Stetson, has been minister to Poland since 1835. It had been believed he would Continue to represent the United States at Warsaw when the post was raised to an embassy. Moore's name had been sent to the Warsaw government from the White House, it was learned today.

"Within these limits." the writer said, "are to be found 311 families and 1797 souls. In 1820, I waa informed, tt contained only about 800 souls ln crease in tine years, 997." Camden' was a healthy place In which to live, he said, despite user' tions that it was unhealthy. "Thefact is far otherwise," he wrote. "During the jwcent year, as an eminent physician Tnfelrmed me, there has been more sickness than for a number of years past, and yet there nave oeen but seven deaths since the commencement of the year ln what might be called Camden proper." During the past ten years. Camden has added approximately 39.077 to her population, an average increase a year of 297. Based on, the figures of 100 years ago. the average increase dur. ing that time has been 127 persons a ,year or an actual Increase of 143,589.

Should the commission recommend the establishment of such a market as proposed at the Trenton conference, they will be asked to establish a similar market at some convenient point within the city of Camden, where produce can be hauled direct from the farms and sold to either retailers, jobbers, wholesalers sad even consumers. For many years the city of Newark has had a big growing market, where hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Jersey produce has been sold direct to local consumers and dealers. This market has been the outlet for immense amounts of locally grown produce, which has been extremely profitable ' to the producers and highly satisfactory to the. consumers. Plaa Newark Market It is now planned to establish a sim ilar market, possibly on the Newark Meadows, sdjacent to the Lincoln Highway where this business can be conducted on a much larger scale. The matter was brought to the attention of the legislature., last winter and it appointed a committee to investigate this proposition. Serving on this commission are Hon Emmor Roberts, Moorestown, a leading fruit grower; Dr. Frank App, Bridgeton, manager of the Dai-Bay Farms and a former farm editor of The Morning Post, and R. W. DeBaum, Pine Brook, a prominent market gardener from Essex county. In addition to the farmer representa tion are three members from the as sembly and three members of the senate.

Over Cumberland county highways thus cleared will flash unchal lenged through tha night tha coupes packed nock to nock, heralding an era of high-speed and eoncaalmant ia transportation of contraband. For the benefit of those who have been assured by favorite bootlegger of receiving "stuff just off the boat" it may be added that Camden cutting plants are operating with day and night shifts, splitting one bottle of Scotch into seven by diluting with alcohol, water and a dash of creosote, which, during less festive seasons, of the year, creates four bottles from one. 1 6 Merrymakers are not likely to com Surgical Santa Sought by Chili Some kind-hearted physician eaa be a real Santa Clans.
