The meeting will be held February 11 at a place to be announced, with representatives of all community clubs and other local organizations to be invited. , • The open meeting was urged by Commander Adam Mengacci of Montanari-Rodo Post who asserted that the council was being given the "run-around" by local officials. "It's time we sounded out other organizations in town 'to see whether we're the only one's who want an auditorium," he said. Members of the council called for reading of minutes of past meetings, including one three months ago at which Warden Leo J- Brophy promised to call a meeting of the planning commission "within a week" if no report was received in the mean-time from the State Department of Education with reference to the school survey. He said at that meeting that there was little jioin-t in making- plans for construction' until the Brockton Mass. -Mrs. Bertha Coti! has appealed to what she liM'ms "the misled public 1 " to withhold judgment, until she cun prov.- In-rst-ir innocent of a murder charge in the death of her husband.
