NUMBER 16
white way RESTAURANT CLOSED FOR REPAIRS
The White Way Restaurant closed this week and will reopen about Sept. 15th. The place is to be entirely done over and remodeled. A tile floor will be put in and more tables added, thus enlarging the capacity of the restaurant. The lunch room also will be rearranged, with the counters placed in the form of a horse shoe, giving more space for customers.
The restaurant, which opened for business on Christmas Eve last winter has had a remarkable year, far beyond the expectations of the management. Mrs. Manning has now gone north to make arrangements for taking care of the increased business which they expect to have this coming winter.
Not only is the financial success great, but the restaurant ranks high as to its sanitary condition. The state inspector who has recently looked over the establishment rated it at 94%, the % lacking to give it the perfect mark being due to a structural defect in the building which is to be remedied immediately.
LONGwood state BANK OPENED
Longwoods first banking institu. tion, the Longwood State Bank, opened its doors to the public Mon: day afternoon for the first time, telegraphic permission having been received from the state authorities allowing the officials to do so. The bank is capitalized at 20,000, and bids fair to develop into one of the strongest financial institutions in the county. Officers of the bank are C. W. Entzminger, president and chairman of the board of directors, J. E. Walker, first vice-president and cashier, and B. J. Overstreet, second vice-president. The directors are C. . Entzminger, chairman, B. J. Overstreet, J. E. Walker, L. J. Slade and J. H. Hartley. Mr. Entzminger and Mr. Walker are well known to the people of the county, the former having recently resigned as county commissioner after a loyal service of thirteen years, and the latter being mayor of Longwood. (Continued on Page 4)
PROCLAMATION
I, E. A. Upmeyer, by virtue of the authority vested in me as mayor of the Town of Lake Maitland, Florida, do hereby proclaim:
The Week of Sept. 6th to 12th to be CLEAN-Up WEEK
Property owners and residents are requested to observe this proclamation and arrange, during the week above mentioned, to cut and remove all weeds from fence lines and yards, to repair fences and buildings, to clear out all rubbish, and to otherwise improve the appearance of their property.
Rubbish deposited in piles at the curb line will be removed by the town truck.
The cooperation of all citizens is urged in order that we may maintain our pride in Maitland as a delightful and attractive town to live in and that we may present it in its best form to the host of tourists and winter visitors.
Signed E. A. UPMEYER, Mayor.
Attest: E. T. Owen, Town Clerk
TOWN OFFICES MOVED
On Saturday the town offices were moved from their temporary quarters in the post office to the new Municipal building. During the summer the up. stairs room will be used as an office. Water and electricity have been con nected and the place is being put into good order. E. A. UPMEYER REPORTS
CONDITIONS GOOD IN GEORGIA
Mr. E. A. Upmeyer, mayor of Maitland and President of the Bank of Maitland, who has recently returned from a business trip to At lanta, says that there is a better out. look for farm crops of all kinds in Georgia than there has been for six years and that business and financial conditions are excellent. Incidentally he reports that Georgia can outdo Florida when it comes to lightning and rain storms, as he encountered one of the worst ones he has ever experienced, in Atlanta, 2.37 inches of rain falling in an hour.
OFFICERS OF ORANGE COUNTY C. OF C. ENTERTAINed by MAITLAND CHAMBER
At the regular monthly luncheon and meeting of the Maitland Chamber of Commerce held at the White Way Restaurant, August 12, C. T. Bick. ford, assistant secretary of the Orange County Chamber of Commerce, and J. G. Wheldon and A. T. Coith of the Orange County and Orlando Chambers, were present and spoke of the work being done by the County Chamber. Mr. Wheldon, who is Industrial and Agricultural Secretary, spoke of his plan to bring industries to the various communities in the county, and Mr. Coith, who is on the Beautification Commission, told of the county nurseries which are at the dis posal of any town or individual want ing to make plantings on or in sight of the highway. Mr. Bickford ex plained the plan of cooperation be tween the Orange County and Or. lando Chambers now that Karl Leh. mann has become Secretary of both bodies, by which each takes charge of certain aspects of work, the publicity being handled for the two together.
After considerable discussion on the subject of the unkept condtion of the roadsides due to the overgrowth of weeds, it was decided to endorse a Clean-up Week and to ask the property owners and residents to cooperate in cleaning up their premises. The details were left to the Executive Committee to work out.
About thirty people were present at the meeting. Announciment was made that the next meeting on Aug. 26th, will be an evening meeting, at which time the various committees will report on the work done by them through the summer.
Gasoline STOVE EXPLODEs
A gasoline stove in the home of K. N. McPherson exploded, causing considerable damage in the kitchen, where a window was broken and fire broke out. The fire department was
called, but the flames were extin. guished by workmen on the place be fore the department arrived.

CLEAN-UP WEEK
The Mayors Proclamation, designating the first week of September as Clean-up Week, is heartily wel comed by the News.
The first week of the first fall month is a most appropriate time for this action. To those of us who came from the north, the odor of burning leaves always brings to mind a crisp autumn day, the fields clean and brown after the harvesting of the crops, the trees bare of leaves, the weeds and roadside flowers cut down, and all outdoor activities turned to: ward cleaning up preparatory to the rigors of winteran interesting but
sad labor.
But here in the south what a dif. ferent aspect does the fall cleaning have. Here it is preparatory to an active, not a dormant season. We are simply clearing out one period of growth to make way for another With how much greater energy and enthusiasm should we attack this work, since it means making ready for that season of the year in which our lives are so filled with both work and pleasure that there is no time for doing odd jobs" around the place.
So let us respond wholeheartedly to our Mayors proclamation. Let us help the town to clean up the road. sides; let us prepare our own property for winter planting; let us repair and

paint our buildings; let us put our houses and grounds in perfect order so that our town may be more beauti ful than it has ever been.

WHITE way posts KNOCKED DOWN
Many are the vicissitudes of the White Way posts along the highway. Last week a post near Lake Faith was cut neatly of just above the ground one evening by an unknown auto, and on Sunday a post near the south end of town was knocked over by a car which skidded and demolished a Ford as well as the post. No one was in jured.

Your Valuables are Worth MoreThan 2 Why Take Chances?
In the event of fire or theft your valuable papers and articles are liable to be a total loss, and many of the things you value cannot be replaced, others can be replaced only at some expense and great trouble.
Such loss is easily avoided if you have a safedeposit box in your bank, and the cost of a box compared to its value to you in case of fire or theft is nothing.
Let us give you a box in this banks vault free of charge until January 1st, and then charge you for it at

STATE ELECTRICAL LAWS TO BE STRENGTHENED
J. H. Bennett, who attended the Electragists' meeting in Tampa last Wednesday and Thursday, reports that a new set of ordinances governo ing electric construction in the state of Florida were adopted at this convention. These, if enacted into law by the legislature will require a state examination for all electrical contractors and journeymen, who if they pass the examination conducted by the State Examining Board can, by paying the vocational tax, do work in any municipality in the state. This is considered a good thing for the electrician and each community will be protected by being assured of having men who know how to do work properly and according to code. A local inspector will have jurisdiction over a five mile radius outside the city limits where there is not already an inspector. A state inspector will have charge of outlying districts.
In a business where life and property are at stake, it is necessary that there should be competent men on the job, so this seems to be a wise act of legislation, and it is expected that it will become a law at the next meeting of the legislature.
NEw store progressing RAPIDLY
The new store building which W. T. Clare is erecting on Maitland Ave. is about ready for the roof to be put on. The two stores and apartments will be ready for occupancy before many weeks.
