Maitland LumberCo. Rebuilding on Large Scale
NEW RESIDENCES IN GREENWOOD GARDENS NEARING COMPLETION
Several new residences under con struction in Greenwood Gardens are nearing completion. L. L. Coudert, who is building a two story residence at the extreme north end of the town overlooking Lake Faith expects to oc. cupy his new home early in June. The bungalow now being built by R. A. Wheeler is nearly completed, and the house which is being remodeled by the Maitland Realty Company will be ready for occupancy in a short
. F. Parker also is building a residence on the Dixie Highway south of Lake Faith which will be finished during the summer.
Plans are being prepared for a number of other houses in Greenwood Gardens which will be ready for oc. cupancy in the fall.
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE MEETING
At the last meeting of the Chamber of Commerce there were twenty-six members present. The most impor. tant subject taken up at the meeting was the question of a new booklet for Maitland, the old one being entirely out of date. After considerable discussion as to the kind of booklet needed, the amount to be spent, etc., it was decided to appoint a commit. tee to go into the subject thoroughly and report at the next meeting as to what would be the best kind of booklet to have and the cost. J. H. Hill, E. A. Upmeyer and K. N. McPher. son were appointed on the committee.
J. H. Hill gave a report on the work being done by the Orange County Chamber of Commerce. The matter of the slogan contest was laid over to the next meeting in the absence of the chairman, Mr. Upmeyer. The committee hopes that more slo. gans will be submitted before that

MAITLAND NOW HAS GARBAGE DISPOSAL SYSTEM
The town authorities, realizing that the time has come when the disposal of garbage and other trash is a matter of serious consideration to the health of the community, have inaugurated a sytematic and thorough department of refuse collection. It will be nec. essary to charge a small fee for this service, but from a standpoint of convenience and sanitation to all house. holds and business houses the fee is well justified. A number of house. holders are already taking advantage of the service and it is hoped that many more will do so as it will be impossible to carry on an effective system of collection without the cooperation of a majority of the resi. dents and the future health of the town depends largely on this COUDERT appoINTED MUNICIPAL
ENGINEER
At a recent meeting of the Town Council, Louis L. Coudert was appointed and employed by the town as municipal engineer to lay out, design and supervise the construction of all paving and sidewalks now projected or to come up for consideration in the future.
All work entrusted to the J. B. McCrary Engineering Corp, of At lanta, under their contract, will be finished by them, Mr. Couderts appointment covering only new work now under consideration. The Mc. Crary company have proven them. selves entirely satisfactory to the town in all their work and the change was made only thru the desire to keep as much of the town capital at home as possible. Mr. Coudert has proven himself entirely fitted for the position in the work which he has already done for the town.
Mr. and Mrs. A. N. Pettis, who have made their home with Mrs. Bronson for the past two years, are now occupying Mr. E. R. Halls cot.
tage.
The Maitland Lumber Company is rebuilding on a much larger scale since the fire which destroyed its buildings on the evening of March 15. The newest building, an uptodate warehouse, was fortunately not destroyed and immediately after the fire a new lumber shed and a garage sufficient to house four trucks were constructed. Now plans have been completed for a shed 80x135, of twice the capacity of the former shed, and a much improved office building. Mr. Upmeyer, president and general man ager, feels that in the long rum the fire may prove an advantage as it makes it necessary for him to rebuild now and he is able to do so on a much larger scale than he felt justified in doing two years ago when he started with a business confined entirely to the handling of lumber. The busi. ness has now expanded to include sash and doors, roofing, brick, cement, plasterin fact everything that is needed for general construction, with the exception of paints which will be added as soon as the new buildings are complete. But while so many new lines are now included, the chief aim of the business, namely the handling of quality lumber and first class builders supplies, has remained the same as it was when Mr. Upmeyer first came to Maitland and started his lum. ber yard.
SCOUTS CAMP NEAR PALM SPRINGS
The first camping party of the summer participated in by the Boy Scout troop was on the Wekiwa River about two miles below Palm Springs The boys went out Friday afternoon and returned Saturday noon, having spent the time in swimming, boating and hiking. The party consisted of Scout Master Forrest B. Stone, ert Kilbourn, Teddy Brocksmith, Lloyd Haines, Bill Tucker, Bill Deuel, Ray Ponder, Jack Lee, and John Law.

Such, we believe, are the men who are now in office in Maitland. The Mayor and four of the councilmen have been connected with the town government for a considerable time and have shown themselves honest, resourceful and enthusiastic in the promotion of the best interests of the town. They have been instrumental in putting across two bond issues and have worked earnestly to carry the work to completion. J. G. Friedland, the only new man on the council, has taken hold of the street and sanitary department with energy and deter. mination, having already installed a trash collection service, and he is planning many innovations and im provements. Never before have municipal affairs been in better condition than they are today.
But let us remember that the test of these men lies in their continued and constant service and that in truth their temptations are many."
Perhaps the most serious temptation to which we are all subject is the tendency, supposed to be most prevalent in the southern states and during the summer season, to lie down

on the joband leave until tomorrow things which should have been done yesterday. We wonder if our coun. cilmen even are entirely free from this tendency which we ordinary citi. zens feel coming upon us as the summer rains approach. We admit that there may be perfectly legitimate excuses for delavs, which delays are in reality wholly unnecessary. Was it necessary to wait so long for a town attorney to be appointed so that pave ing petition approved months ago might be prepared for publication? And now that we have a town attor. ney and a town engineer will these matters be rushed through or will there be further delays? A member of the Council told us the other day that the water system would not be in operation for three or four months yet. Why? Winter Park has extended its mains to the Maitland line. Are we going to let people in the south end of Maitland tap on to them to obtain water? Win: ter Park is paving miles of streets just opened up in new subdivisions Are we going to let our subdivisions lie idle for lack of streets and the building of new homes thus go to Winter Park? There are many things we needa hotel, a new station, stores, houses, and we are beseeching outside capital to come in and give them to us. What

Now, I dont know whether to go ahead or not. It seems to take so long to get anything done in Mait. land.” Are we going to hold this mans interest and that of his friends?
