GREEN wood GARDENs. FIELD OFFICE TO HAVE BEAUTIFUL SETTING -
Work has been started toward the beautification of the lot in Greenwood Gardens where the Maitland Realty Company field office stands. This lot will be laid out and planted under the direction of S. B. Hill, . and F. B. Stone as a model home lot, showing what can be done in a short time and with a minimum of labor and expense to beautify and improve a Greenwood Gardens lot. The rear of the lot is being used temporarily as a nursery for cuttings and plants which are being raised for use in other parts of the subdivision, and which will be distributed as soon as they are of sufficient size for transplanting. The beautification of the entire subdivision is to be carried out as fast as practicable, depending some what upon the paving and other work, as street plantings cannot be (Continued on Page 2)
The regular monthly sewing and luncheon meeting of the Maitland Auxiliary took place at the Library last Friday. Twenty-seven members were present and seventy-four gar ments have been finished this summer, with about thirty more started The next meeting will be held on the fourth Friday in July, the 23rd.
SIDEwALKS LAID IN ORANGEDALE PARK
The sidewalk on the south side of Tangerine Place has been finished. This is the first sidewalk to be laid in Orangedale Park, the largest restricted subdivision in south Maitland. Sidewalks on the other streets will be laid immediately and petitions for paving have been in for some time. These streets will open up an attract tive residence district lying between Maitland and Winter Park, a convenient and desirable location.
TAX ASSESSOR APPOINTED
The Council has appointed Louis L. Coudert as tax assessor for 1926. This seems a very happy appointment as Mr. Coudert, who is also town engineer and surveyor, has in files, plats and descriptions of the property in the town which will be of great assistance in making out the assess ment roll. The Council has also appointed J. H. Hill, C. J. Woodward and K. N. McPherson as members of the Special Tax Commision, all of whom have served on this commission in previous years and are well quainted with property values in Maitland.
NEW FIRE ZONES ESTABLISHED
The Zoning Commission at a recent meeting enlarged the first fire zone to extend through the lots on the east side of vanderpool Avenue and to include the business lots in the SpragueQuinn addition. A secondary fire -one was established on the west of Maitland avenue, back of the lots fac. ing on the avenue. This is a district in which stores may be built which do not conform with the strict require ments of the first zone, thus giving an opportunity for small enterprises to be established near the business center for which the erection of a fire proof building would be prohi. bitory. In addition to these two busi ness zones two industrial zones have been established; one on the west side of Maitland Ave. between Packwood and the railroad, and one north of George St. and south of Cybelia, on both sides of the railroad. In these zones, lumber yards, garages and small inoffensive manufacturing plants may be placed. All of the rest of the town is classed as res. idence, subject of course to future developments, when further business and industrial zones may be required.
Miss Lois Haile left on Tuesday for a months visit in South Carolina and North Carolina.
Will be Delivered to Town. After Inspec. tion by Orlando Reo Agency.
Great excitement was felt in Maito land Monday afternoon when two shiny red fire trucks dashed along Maitland avenue, the second one with the name Maitland plainly visible as it passed out of sight around Lily Lake. Unfortunately its coming had not been heralded and it was the chance bystander who had the first glimpse of the new truck, while the majority of the citizens must wait until it has been overhauled by the Reo Agency in Orlando and formally turned over to the town before they can receive convincing proof that Maitland at last boasts a real fire department.
MUNICIPAL BUILDING PROGRESSING RAPIDLY
The walls of the municipal building which was commenced last week are nearly completed work is being pushed rapidly and it is expected that great progress will be made during the next week.
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE CHANGES MEETING TIME
At the last meeting of the Chamber of Commerce it was decided to hold only one meeting a month dur: ing July and August, as many of the members expect to be out of town during a part of the summer, and there is not so much business to attend to at this time of year. These meetings will be held on the second Thursday of each month. The at tendance at the meetings has been splendid upto-date, never dropping below twenty-five and it is trusted that the same record will continue all Sunninner.
Mrs. I. Vanderpool, Miss Kitty Vanderpool and Miss Stella water. house have taken a cottage at Anna Maria Island, for the first two weeks
of July.

CAN we Avoid ACCIDENTso
The accident last week in which a truck of the National Biscuit Como pany was hit on the Horatio avenue crossing of the A. C. L. railroad and practically demolished reminds us of the four other accidents that have taken place in the past three years at this same crossing, one of which just escaped being a tragedy. While we do not presume to offer a remedy for this condition we feel that it would be well for the proper authori. ties to bring pressure to bear on the railroad to make some provision for protection at this point before a fatal accident occurs.
The crossing is doubly dangerous, being on a curve where the track is visible only a few hundred feet in each direction, and crossing both the railroad and the main highway at the busiest point in the town. We know that the railroad does not provide gates or flagmen save in the large cities, but we feel that Maitland should at least voice her protest against the lack of protection at this crossing.
PROGRESS OF B. L.
We hope shortly to be able to publish a report from the committee appointed some weeks ago by the Chamber of Commerce to promote the ex
tension of the Winter Park Building and Loan Association in Maitland. This committee, consisting of D. G. Spain, E. A. Upmeyer and A. B. Rowland, is very enthusiastic and we feel sure will be ready for a report at an early date.

put in until all grading and construce tion work is finished and the streets cleaned up. It is expected, however, that this will all be completed before the tree planting season comes around and that parkways and streets in the sections will be in good order by fall.
Local ITEMs Mr. and Mrs. Louis L. Coudert and little son left on Saturday for a few weeks trip to New York and other points in the north.
