Angela Grant, 27, of New York City, who allegedly swindled $5,000 from Mrs. Mary Campi, IS Green street, Waterbury on Jan. as. ... - . ,The trial opened yesterday before Judge James E. Murphy. Testimony was given before the jury of eight women and four men. ;; Mrs. ; Grant was ''positively" iden- liried' by Mrs. Helen Bruggeman, 15 Henry street, as the woman who spoke to her in downtown Water- •biiryj last October, before the state rested its case. Mrs. Grant had curlier, denied emphatically that she had been in Waterbury, when arrairiged before Judge Edward J. Quinlan last.;month. ;Mris. Campi told .v^atei-bury po- Jice that'she had been'swindled out of. $5,000 Jh a wallet switch and 5ilrs.- Graht ; was' extradited from New -York • to face the charge.

If treatment is neuea the child will be referred to a doctor, Mr. Chit- lenden said.: The audiometer has been approved by the state for use m schools. In connection with this, the board approved a motion that a teacher be hired next year. Most of the cost would toe borne by the state, the superintendent said, and the work she does could include the-testing of hearing.

Mr..; Chittenden said', in regard to this figure proposed by the school -board in its budget figure this year, "I hope the public, doesn't think tfte budget we offer is what the schools cost the town. It Should, be remembered chat very substantial revenues are received from the state for the schools. These revenues do not- appear on the'statements of the school department. According to Mr. Chittenden, about J88.000 will be received from the state this year.. All indications point to ah increased amount next year, he .said, since no opposition to the idea was. expressed In the Hartford Public hearing this week which Mr. Chittenden attended. School Itepnirs Peter Meegan, member of the building committee, commented on the criticisms made of the school repair bills. , "The buildings are over 50 years old," he said, "and I don't see how anyone *can criticize repair expenditures. If we didn't make any repairs, the critics would become even louder." Dr. Judy said the sound value of the school buildings; excluding the surrounding land and Tuttle house, is $1,690,000. About one per cent of their total worth Is spent on repairs. If you reduce it to the cost of a home, no one would object to spending that small percentage for repairs, especially on a 50- year-old building, D.r. Judy said. Final Meeting. Mrs Valesca Downes, who has been a member of the board for 12 years, attended her last regular meeting yesterday. "We owe a vote of thanks to Mrs. Downes in recognition of her long service," Dr. Judy said. "She was always willing ; to do things that were helpful to schools." Further appreciation of the work of the departing school board member was expressed by i the rest oit the board. : -' .'•' • ••, In reply Mrs.. Downes said, "I have always enjoyed my association with the board. . I've" hail no axe to brind nor had I any special interest. Twelve years is enough." She described her successor, Miss Emily Sophie Bcown, as a woman with an excellent background and well qualified to serve as a member of the Board of Education. The resignation of Mrs. Arlenc Jackson, a teacher at Salem school now on leave of absence, was accepted by the board. Funeral Raymond M.
