Committee Decides Not to
Hold Celebration; Memor
ial Suggested Instead
With the decision of a committte
of the Municipal League, appointed
to determine the feasibility of hold
ing a welcome home celebration for
the borough's service men, unfa
vorable to a demonstration, it is al
together likely the league will in
augurate a move to erect a building
to be used by the community, as a
memorial to the service men.
The committee in session in the
steel plant office building last night
heard reports from individuals that
the service men do not care for a
celebration and felt a community
building erected in their honor would
not only be a fitting token of the
town's appreciation, but would sup
ply the borough with a building that
it has needed for a long time.
When the committee reports to
league members in monthly session
on Monday that a celebration is not
favored it is altogether likely a rec
ommendation will be made to be
gin a move to erect a community
building. Businessmen have been
advocating a move of this kind for
a long time and during the past
year several moves have been made
to encourage the reorganization of a
Y. M. C. A.
The mov ® to erect a community
building has been encouraged by the
J-'*' 6 Club when several months ago
this organization recommended that
the Y. M. C. A., or a similar center
