INAUGUARAL ADDRESS OF ROBERT W. BROWN 

Mayor of Conx'Ord, N. H., January 28, 1930 



To flic Board of Aldermen: 

At the outset I feel called upon to say that my election 
as Mayor of my native City by the Board of Aldermen, and 
subsequent re-election by the people, is to me a source of 
mingled pride and satisfaction, and because I was originally 
selected to fill a vacancy caused by death it has been my 
constant endeavor to carry out, in a general way, the policy 
of my immediate predecessor, the late Olin H. Chase. 

During the past two years the business of the City has 
been handled with a minimum of friction and the following 
outstanding results have been accomplished: 

An appropriate celebration of Armistice Day was ob- 
served. 

An extension of the sewer was made to serve residents 
of the extreme South End in the vicinity of Hall, Broad- 
way, Rockingham, Wiggin, and South Main Streets. 

The City Engineer reports that several new streets have 
been laid out and accepted. 

An Engine Company, known as No. 5, has been organized 
in Ward 8 on the Plains. 

In order to facilitate the transaction of city business. Miss 
M. A. Spencer has been appointed Deputy City Clerk. 

A new piece of cement concrete road has been constructed 
from Fruit Street to St. Paul's School. 

Town line signs have been placed on all roads leading out 
of Concord. 

Repairs on City Hall and Auditorium have been author- 
ized and the work is well under way. 

Three pumping engines have been added to the equipment 
of the Fire Department. 



4 CITY OF CONCORD 

The water svstem has l)een extended to East Concord 
village. 

An entirely new system for the control of the Police and 
Fire Departments has heen pnt in force. This system con- 
sists of Police and Fire Committees in the Board of Alder- 
men, hoth of which have enlarged powers of control. 

The first steps have heen taken looking to the possihle 
re-location of hoth the Good-Will and Alert Fire Stations 
by acquiring the Franklin Street School property and land 
bordered by South, Broadway and West Streets. 

The Penacook School, located at the corner of South 
State and West Streets, has been jnirchased for playground 
purposes. 

Several points of extreme hazard on the trunk lines have 
been completely removed, or the dangers greatly reduced. 
In the latter class 1 point with much satisfaction to the in- 
crease in width of roadway on the curve at the G(jlf Station 
West Concord. 

Discount on taxes, based on apj^roximately the same rate 
at which money has been borrowed from Banking Institu- 
tions, was allowed to our citizens. 

All roads, which have become dangerous through lack 
of use, have l)een posted, thereby relieving the City of 
liability in case of accidents. 

It should be kept in mind that the Mayor takes no credit 
for these accomplishments beyond the fact that they had 
his full sanction and hearty approval. 

During the coming two years I shall continue the policy 
of keeping the Board of Aldermen and general public in- 
formed of all important phases of city business. 

Citizens individually or in organized groups who desire 
to make suggestions in the line of civic betterment and pro- 
gress will receive respectful hearings in my office and all 
such matters when transmitted to the Board of Aldermen 
will be given careful consideration. 

With the many demands for new projects that will add 
to the comfort, pleasure and safety of our people combined 



INAUGURAL ADDRESS 5 

with those now under consideration ; such as the swimming- 
pool, completion of Athletic Field huildings, the Pembroke 
Bridge and other undertakings of less importance, I can see 
little or no hope of reduced taxation. In this connection 
the most that I can honestly promise is that I, with the 
support of the Board of Aldermen, will do all in my powr 
to eliminate waste and extravagance. 

I am opposed to any change in the method of garbage 
disposal at this time except in the matter of the City Dump. 
With the segregated collection that is now demanded there 
are many places where otherwise useless material can be 
used for filling purposes, thereby creating taxable property 
out of waste-land. Filling such as has been done along the 
Bog Road is a fair demonstration of the value of such 
material. 

During my service as Mayor it has been by aim to thor- 
oughly acquaint myself with the workings of all the City 
departments, with no thought of dominating the manage- 
ment of any, but rather to suggest change of methods that 
will be of benefit to the City. Several changes have. already 
been made and others will become efifective in 1930. The 
resulting improvements in methods could not have been 
accomplished without the co-operation of department heads 
and the sympathetic support of the Board of Aldermen. 

The Police and Fire Departments are now under the 
supervision of aldermanic committees or boards. These 
boards are continually working for the betterment of their 
departments, and since I am a member of each I am able 
to testify of my own knowledge that they are making ex- 
cellent progress. Much has been done so far and much 
more remains to be done. 

1 recommend that certain changes be made in the Build- 
ing Code that will give the Building Inspector a broader 
use of his discretion in safeguarding life and property. 

I recommend that the Board give serious consideration 
to the important matter of zoning. 



6 CITY OF CONCORD 

I recomincnd that the matter of a year-round Play- 
ground Director to work with the Recreation Commission 
and Playground Committee he given careful consideration 
hy the Board. 

I recommend necessary changes in the accounting system 
looking toward a more rigid central purchasing set-up. 

I recommend that all city employees handling puhlic 
funds he l)on(led to the full extent of the hazard involved. 

With reference to the financial standing of the City a 
statement of the honded indel)tedness follows : The l)orrow- 
ing power of the Union School District . is $904.79'). and 
its present honded indehtedness is $710,000. The borrow- 
ing power for regular city purposes, excluding the Water 
Works, is $980,512. Our bonded indebtedness at the pres- 
ent time is $467,689. Our tax rate in 1929 was $29.60, 
made up as follows: $5.04 County and State. $13.98 Schools, 
$10.54 general City budget, $.04 special sewer tax. In 
other words more than one-half of the tax assessed is used 
for State, County and school purposes, and in this matter 
your Board, as a l)ody, has no voice. 

As an indication of the sound financial condition of the 
City 1 call attention to the latest sale of municipal bonds 
at $1,006.59. 

Although I am pleased with the general situation much 
remains to be done. It should be borne in mind that the 
Mayor, even with the full support of the Board, is unable 
to do everything that he would like to do. If it were as 
easy to do well as it is to wish to do well, my task would 
be an easy one. (Jur City Government system is an old 
one and it usually takes time to successfully combat the 
fallacy that a thing is right simply because it has always been 
so. W^ith these things in view it will be seen that this is 
neither the time nor the place for ill-considered promises 
and none will be made, except that I will, with your assist- 
ance, strive incessantly to give the City an administration 
that will be a source of pride and satisfaction to all our 
people. 



INAUGURAL ADDRESS 7 

In addition to that pledge I also promise that inside of 
forty-eight hours from noon today the present City Dump 
on Bridge Street will be moved to a location that was pre- 
pared for that purpose many months ago. 

It would be quite impossible for me to close this address 
without expressing grief over the untimely passing of our 
beloved colleague Charles H. Rowe. In his death Concord 
lost a citizen of sterling worth and it is my belief that every 
member of the City Government is conscious of a deep per- 
sonal loss. 

And now in conclusion I wish to express, in a very hearty 
and friendly way, my gratitude to the Board for its unfail- 
ing courtesy to me and I can honestly enlarge that expres- 
sion so that it will include all heads of departments and 
every employee of the City with whom I have come in con- 
tact.'

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER 
COMMISSIONERS 



To flic Honorable Mayor and Board of Aldermen: 

The Board of Water Commissioners, in submitting their 
annual report for the year 1930, feel that this is a rather 
eventful year in the history of the Concord Water Works, 
for the reason that the city was obliged to obtain an addi- 
tional supply of water, supplementing the main source of 
supply at Penacook Lake. On account of the continued 
drought and low water in Penacook Lake, the Water Board, 
acting on the advice of its superintendent, Mr. Sanders, 
and the firm of Aletcalf & Eddy, engineers of Boston, de- 
cided last summer to commence the work of driving test 
wells in the Soucook River Valley. The result of this work 
has been extremely gratifying and satisfactory up to the 
present time, as there is being pumped daily from these 
driven wells about eight hundred thousand gallons of water 
into the city's distributing water system. The pumping of 
this additional water supply from Soucook River Valley re- 
lieves the main water supply by that number of gallons. 

We are also at the present time buying from the Bos- 
cawen Water Works about 150,000 gallons of water daily, 
in supplying the water takers in Penacook. 

The coming year will show the completion of the new 
water supply from the driven wells in the Soucook River 
Valley which includes the driving of the wells, the erection 
of pump houses and the installation of two electric pumps 
and one gasoline pump capable of pumping 2,500,000 gallons 
of water daily. ' There are also to be erected in connection 
with the pumping plant, a work shop and garage and when 



62 CITY OF CONCORD 

all of this work is completed, including cost of land, rights 
of way, piping, roadways, etc.. it will amount to about 
$125,000. 

Respectfully submitted,

On January 1, 1930 the height of water in Penacook Lake 
stood at 179.60 and dropped to 179 by the last of February 



68 CITY OF CONCORD 

which point was 6 feet helow the overflow and 9.25 feet 
above the top of the intake. The very small rainfall in 
February. March and April gave us a rise of only 1.6 feet 
bringing the height of water to 180.6, 4.4 feet below the 
overflow and 10.85 feet above the intake. It soon became 
apparent that in all prol)al)ility there would be no further 
rise and an estimate of the drop in level for 1930 compar- 
ing with that of previous years would bring the level down 
to 176 feet, 9 feet below overflow and 6.25 feet above the 
intake. The drop was actually greater than this estimate 
by one foot and the level reached December 31, 1930 was 
174.95, 5.25 feet above the intake. 

Recommendations were made to the Board by your Sup- 
erintendent early in June that steps be taken at once to 
procure an additional supply of water from the area rec- 
omimended l)y Metcalf and Eddy in their report of 1927 
and he was authorized to begin work at once. 

Investigations were made through the summer to deter- 
mine the practicability of obtaining a supply from driven 
wells in the Soucook River valley. 

About thirty-five wells were driven to ledge throughout 
this area, samples were taken of the sand and pumping tests 
were conducted on every well. The water pumped from the 
wells on the Concord side of the river showed a large per- 
centage of iron, contributed no doubt by a swampy area 
v^hich was in close proximity to the wells. The tests made 
on the Pembroke side of the river some distance above the 
Concord area show^ed only a slight trace of iron, so small 
that it was negligible. 

Pumping tests were ct^nducted on a number of wells 
connected together on the Concord side to determine the 
amount of drop in level by pumping. This test was car- 
ried on for three weeks, twenty-four hours per day. An 
experimental iron removal plant under supervision of Met- 
calf and Eddy was also built which consisted of aeration, 
coke filtration, sedimentation and rapid sand filtration. By 



WATER DEPARTMENT 69 

means of this process it was demonstrated that all of the 
iron could be removed from the gromid water. 

The ground water from the Pembroke side of river show- 
ing such good tests, it was decided to install a driven well 
system in this area to yield approximately 1,500,000 gallons 
daily. 

The 12-inch force main was continued along the North 
Pembroke Road from the point where it was laid in 1928 
to the proposed location of the Pumping Station at the well 
field. Work was begun on this line October 27 and com- 
pleted November 20. 

Work was started driving the wells November 10 and was 
in charge of John M. Prescott & Son. 

It is planned to continue work during the winter and 
place an auxiliary pump in service as soon as possible. 

December 17, 1930 the gates between the Concord and 
Boscawen supj^lies were opened and water has been supplied 
to Penacook and as far south as the West Concord Ceme- 
tery from the Boscawen W^ater Works, amounting to ap- 
proximately 150,000 gallons per day. The total daily con- 
sumption of the city varies from 2,750,000 to 3,000,000 
gallons daily. 

In this report I wish to take the opportunity of thanking 
the men of this department who realizing the urgency of 
obtaining this new supply as soon as possible have cheer- 
fully cooperated at all times and in all weather to push the 
work along. 

I also wish to express my thanks to the members of the 
Board for their continued confidence. 

Respectfully submitted, 

PERCY R. SANDERS,

While the number of alarms exceeded all previous records, 
there was a gratifying decrease in property loss. The ap- 
paratus is in good condition in the main but the combina- 
tion car at West Concord should be replaced and the pump 
attached to Combination 1 car should receive attention. 

First aid kits and salvage covers were installed and two 
thousand feet of hose purchased during the year, also a new 
fire alarm repair truck and Chief's car and life net. 

The fire alarm system is in good condition. The over- 
head lines on South Street between Pleasant and Downing 
Streets, were replaced by underground cable. Eight alarm 
boxes, to be installed when locations are determined, and ma- 
terial for substituting the overhead parallel lines from the 

76 



FIRE DEPARTMENT 77 

citv sheds to St. Paul's School with overhead cable were 
among the purchases of the year. 

The boiler at the Central Station should be replaced — ■ 
the one in present use having been installed in 1904. I 
respectfully recommend the purchase of fifteen hundred 
feet of hose and the addition of at least one man to the 
permanent force. 

For the opportunity afiforded me to learn by attending 
the convention of The International Association of Fire 
Chiefs held at Winnipeg during October, a report of which 
was rendered at that time, I return my sincere thanks. 
Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT. 



CoxcoRD, N. H., December 31, 1930. 
To the Board of Mayor and Aldermen: 

Gentlemen: Herewith is submitted the thirty-eighth 
annual report of the Engineering Department. 

An itemized account of all work and expenditures is kept 
on a card system, which we will be pleased to show and 
explain to all interested parties. 

Thirty-six plans and 1.001 blue prints were made; 20,037 
feet of grade stakes were set; 515 transfers of property 
were recorded; 0.373 miles of street were laid out in 1930 
and 200 feet of streets disccjntinued, bringing the total 
mileage of streets and roads in the entire citv u]) to 178.507 
miles. 

The deed book of Blossom Pi ill Cemetery showing trans- 
fers of lots was brought up to January 1. 1931. 

The work done under the sui)ervision of this office is: 
general engineering, construction and maintenance of sewers, 
building inspection, plumbing ins])ection and examining of 
plumbers. 

An interesting fact is. that out of every dollar raised by 
taxation, only $0.0087 of it is used for the maintenance 
of the Engineering Dejjartment, and we are closing the 
year with an unexpended balance oi $36.76. 

Considerable work was done for the Zoning Commission- 
ers pre])aring maps, field work and office work. 

It would take up too much space to outline in detail the 
amount of work done in this office, but I assure you we have 
been busy handling the work assigned us by your govern- 
ment, heads of departments and citizens, which we trust 
has met with their approval. 

The employees of this department have been: Edward 
E. Beane, assistant engineer ; C. Fred Moulton and Paul

my appreciation.

REPORT OF THE PLUMBING INSPECTOR. 



Concord, N. H., December 31, 1930. 

To the Board of Mayor and Aldermen: 

Gentlemen : The sixth annual report of the plumbing 
inspections in the city of Concord, handled through the 
office of the city engineer, is herewith submitted: 

There have been 157 permits issued for new work, 
against 190 for 1929, 194 for 1928, 235 for 1927, 210 for 
1926 and 156 for 1925. 

There were 300 inspections made. 

It is pleasing to the inspector to report that there has 
been very few complaints of evasion of the plumbing rules, 
and these being of a minor nature. 

A record is kept in the office of the city engineer of the 
various plumbing jobs, showing the layout of the work, 
date of completion, and the names of the parties doing the 
work. 

The plumbers of Concord, taken as a whole, are expert 
workmen, and it has been a great pleasure to your inspector 
to work with them. 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRED W. LANG, 

Plumbing rnspector.

LN MEMORIAM 



ORRIN W. HEAD 

Superintendent of Streets 

Elected December 29, 1919 

Died August 16, 1930 



REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF STREETS 



January 1, 1931. 



To flic Board of Public Works: 



At the outset, I want to express my personal loss in the 
death of Orrin W. Head, former Superintendent of Streets. 
Mr. Head served this Department for approximately 10 
years, and he has left behind many friends and accomplish- 
ments. 

This Department is charged with the responsibihty of the 
collection of garbage, maintenance of sidewalks, highways, 
bridges, and street lighting, as well as the care of trees. 

During the year 1930, there have been several important 
pieces of construction, the outstanding is the work on 
Gulley Hill, so-called, which in addition to the roadway and 
sidewalk also carries sewer construction about a mile in 
length, to which the Plains system will be connected when 
finances permit. The cost of this construction was borne 
one-half by the State, and one-half by the City. 

Five l)ridges were Iniilt ; — two on Clinton Street near 
Turkey Pond, one on the Birchdale Road, one on the 
Hooksett Turnpike, and one on the new Hopkinton Road. 
The two construction items mentioned above were paid for 
by a Bond Issue -of $20,135.80, balance 1929, bridge bond 
account, $5,668.84 and $7,319.98 was transferred from the 
Hopkinton Bond account. 

Cement was laid from the Bog Road to the Gulf Station 
wholly at the expense of the State. 

Main Street in Penacook, from Hoyt's Garage to the 
Boscawen Town line was rebuilt with modified asphalt, 
after necessary change in sub-grade on which to properly 
maintain a first class street. 

The Bridge Street Bridge of the Railroad has been re- 

91 



92 CITY OF CONCORD 

constructed, the City to share with the Railroad; one-half 
the cost in excess of $34,000. 

As closely as I followed this Department as Mayor I did 
not realize the numljer of more or less personal matters 
that the Superintendent of Streets was called upon to ad- 
minister. 

Fincncc — The appropriation as made, earnings, and 
amount of money expended will he found in the financial 
statement, therefore, that information will be omitted from 
this report. 

Bridges — On account of the increased use of the Lower 
Bridge, so-called, it seemed necessary to make temporary 
repairs to floor system. While this turned out to be more 
or less of an experiment it served its purpose in that no 
accidents, due to failure of the floor system, which have in 
the past been brought to the attention of the Board, have 
taken })lace this summer. 

Equipiiiciif — We have added to our equipment three 
Chevrolet one ton trucks, equipped with Wood Hydraulic 
Hoists and 1^^ yard steel bodies also. Two used Interna- 
tional Trucks of the same type and capacitv as were former- 
ly in the Dej)artment, and the other two International Trucks 
have been thoroughly overhauled. We have also exchanged 
two Mead-Morrison Tractors, and the remains of the third 
one, which was demolished by a train on the crossing at 
East Concord, for three new Mead-Morrison Tractors. 
The barn, sheds and garage have had a thorough house 
cleaning, and the discarded equipment has been sold as far 
as possible and the money received turned into the Depart- 
ment. We have purchased two pair of horses, and sold 
one horse formerly used in the Department. The result of 
the above has put the equipment in first class shape. 

ROBERT W. BROWN, 

Mayor.

Every sewer that was granted has been completed with 
the exception of the sewer in Bridge street through Gulley

total length is approximately 4,500 feet. This work was 
done under contracts made by the State Highway Depart-

as to costs will not be available until sometime in February 
1931. 

Our regular emplo3'ees of the department have been :

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 



REPORT OF TRUSTEES. 



To the Mayor and Board of Aldermen: 

The Trustees of the Pubhc Library transmit herewith 
our city Hbrarian's annual report, which we commend to 
your attention. 

The hbrary building is in good repair, but is utterly in- 
adequate to the increasing demand for suitable service. 

It is well understood that a new building, with modern 
library facilities is needed; not only for the credit of the 
city, but for its practical use by children, students, and 
citizens in general. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIS D. THOMPSON, 

President of the Board of Trustees.

REPORT OF CITY LIBRARIAN FOR 1930. 



To the Board of Trustees of the Concord Public Library: 

Gentlemen : — It has been a pleasure to write this re- 
port because it can tell of gain along all lines. 

Except, let me hasten to say. except in the matter of ex- 
pense. Asked not to exceed last year's outlay, we prac- 
ticed economy through the twelve months and were re- 
warded by finding we had, by $84.00, bettered 1929. The 
cost of this city department for 1930 was $10,101 the items 
of expenditures being as follows : 

Salaries and labor 

Books and periodicals 

Binding 

Printing 

Fuel and light 

Incidentals 



Taking up topics in the order prescribed for library re- 
ports we come to the sul)ject of 

Accessions 

More vokimes were bought than usual 1603 

We had gifts, notably one from Mr. Toland 76 

Bound volumes of magazines added 21 

Worn out and discarded 477 

There was therefore a net gain of 1223 (as against 639 
in 1930) bringing the number of books in the library up to 
40,005. Of course the booksellers' experiment with dollar 
editions has enlarged our purchasing power in a way which 
does not seem likely to continue, judging from the latest 
announcements from the publishers.

PUBLIC LIBRARY 99 

Circulation of books. 

This grew gratifying the past year, 9400 more volumes 
having heen charged out to borrowers, making the total fig- 
ure 98.216 as compared with 88,813 in 1929. This increase 
is due largely to the Branch Rooms at West Concord and 
Penacook. In the former, the books we have loaned have 
gone out more than 1000 times. Over this central and cheery 
room Rev. and Mrs. Franklin C. Thompson, its originators, 
have continued their intelligent, accurate and sympathetic 
care, and certainly their enterprise is for the good and 
pleasure of Ward 3. Last fall we put $50.00 at its disposal 
so that Mrs. Thompson could buy some books for which 
she had learned there was a crying need. 

At the beginning of last March, spurred on and assisted 
by the Penacook Woman's Club, we started a modest de- 
posit and delivery station in the rear of Stuart G. Fifield's 
store ; to be open twice a week, 2 :30 to 5 o'clock ; to be 
managed Fridays by two of the Club women, Tuesdays by 
two from our regular stafif ; expense of rent and janitor to 
be shared by Club and Library. September found the 
Penacook ladies ready to enlarge and beautify the room 
so as to make it suitable for their monthly meeting. The 
Library fell in willingly with their plans, Mr. Fifield gave 
interested cooperation, and the result is a sizeable, attrac- 
tive ])lace overlooking the river, stocked with 800 books to 
which borrowers ■ have free access. A great table is 
abundantly supplied with current magazines contributed by 
Penacook people. Upwards of 300 persons in Ward 1 
have already registered as borrowers. In the ten months 
since the Branch was started, 7147 books have been given 
out. In the coming year we want to bring the number of 
volumes on the shelves up to 1000, and to further the use 
by pupils of books taken up to Penacook to help them in 
their school requirements. Though this Branch renders 
much wider service than could the delivery station main- 
tained through previous years in another store, it costs but 



100 CITY OF CONCORD 

little more. Despite some initial outlay which will not have 
to be repeated. $35.00 would cover the increased overhead 
expense. It should be added, however, that we have hid to 
buy for this Branch, duplicates of popular books and those 
on church and other recommended lists. 

Nezv Borvotvcrs. 

What with the Penacook customers and those applying 
at the main lilirary, we have filed away 1033 names in 1930. 

Service to Schools. 

Teachers from half a dozen districts have had loans of 
books, twenty-five to fifty being taken to their rooms at 
intervals. 

The Reference Department, 

and this is almost the same as saying Miss Dennett, has 
answered 3,849 inquiries the past year. 

Troubles. 

Of course the library has them — what Inisiness has not? 
Mutilation and ril)ald defacement of magazines is a major 
annoyance. A little amateur detective work brought one 
culprit to task — a confirmed eater of paper, who had 
chewed off margins from several volumes. Then there are 
pupils who have been told to embellish their compositions 
with pictures and who help themselves to illustrations ; the 
worse case of that in 1930, being the tearing of a few leaves 
from a reference set in order to get a likeness of Alexander 
Graham Bell. 

Changes in Staff. 

April first, Miss Helen C. Clarke, a valued assistant for 
twenty-eight years, resigned her position, to our regret. 



PUBLIC LIBRARY 101 

On June first, Miss Marion Holt, a Concord girl with some 
Boston training and experience in library work, joined our 
staff. 

Vacation Reading Club. 

Our working number thus complete again, we undertook 
for a second time this Club which met with success, boys 
and girls eagerly enrolling as members. More than sixty 
read enough books to entitle them to receive diplomas, and 
the four who had read the most and reported thereon most 
ably, were awarded prizes at an ice cream party that brought 
the club to a close the last of August and left the children 
anticipating a similar organization next summer. Miss 
Melvin and Miss Holt took almost entire charge of the 
children this year. 

Patronage. 

It is said that a poor year in business makes a good year 
at a library, implying, of course, that people curtail pleas- 
ures which cost and revert to the free privilege of reading. 
Whether owing to slack times or not, this present season 
sees our reading room full to overflowing. The next one 
must be larger. 

A Suggestion. 

Thus we are brought to stress again the need of a new 
building. It may not have occurred to residents that the 
good time coming when Concord shall have a fine library 
can be hastened ; the future building will require a children's 
room, a small audience hall, a study room, office equipment, 
etc., etc. The expense of any one of these could be taken 
care of by a gift, or bequest from an individual, whose 
name and deed would be memoralized on a fitting tablet. 
If in this way the cost of some special features were pro- 
vided for, the comprehensive outside structure of the 



102 CITY OF CONCORD 

Library could the sooner be undertaken by the accumulating 
building fund. 

With this word to the wise, I sign myself, 

Respectfully, 

Grace Blanchard, 

City Librarian.

REPORT OF THE CITY SOLICITOR FOR 
NINETEEN HUNDRED AND THIRTY 



Concord, N. H., December 31, 1930. 

There has been the usual activity in the office of the 
City Sohcitor during the last year and at times more than 
usual activity. 

The situation of pending cases has been bettered. The 
suit of Frank H. Silver was dismissed upon the motion of 
his council at the April Term and that long drawn out 
matter is disposed of. The case of Royal Ford against the 
Citv (Water Works Department) was defended by the 
insurance company, but as the damages claimed exceeded 
the amount of the policy, I sat in at the trial, but took no 
active part. There was a verdict for $1,500.00 against the 
City which was covered by the insurance. 

This leaves pending on the docket only proceedings for 
the discontinuance of the old Soucook River Bridge and of 
the highways at St. Paul's School. The first named case 
is concluded as far as the discontinuance is concerned, but 
is pending on the application of the parties interested for 
damages. The St. Paul's School cases are being continued 
at the desire of the City. 

ELWIN L. PAGE, 

City Solicitor.

Mayor Browu, Board of Hcaltli and Board of Aldermen: 

Gentlemen: Following will be found the summary of the 
work for the year 1930. 

The number of contagious diseases were comparatively 
few and there were many non-resident deaths in the State 
and City Institutions. 

The Venereal Clinic is held weekly under the auspices of 
the State and local Boards of Health with Dr. Adams in 
charge : Mrs. Ada Parsons assisting. 

In June 1930, Toxin-Antitoxin Clinics were started in 
the schools of the city, for the prevention of diphtheria and 
by the end of the school term in June, 1931, all children be- 
tween 1 and 12 years of age will have had the privilege of 
having the 3 inoculations given them. Dr. Charles H. Par- 
sons is in charge of these clinics and is assisted by Mrs. 
Mansur and Mrs. Benson. The Board of Health greatly 
appreciates the help and cooperation given by The Concord 
District Nursing Association. 

The shores of Penacook Lake have been inspected as 
well as the alleyways of the city proper and conditions were 
found to be most satisfactory.

REPORT OF PARK COMMISSIONERS. 



To the Mayor and Board of Aldermen: 

The city parks have been kept up to the usual standard 
and at White Park the iron fence has been carried along 
Beacon street 268 feet. 

Four new swings have been added to playground equip- 
ment at White Park. 

At Rollins Park the Veterans of Foreign Wars have 
fitted out a swimming pool that will be greatly appreciated 
by the children of the South End. The northern end of 
the body of water in the park has been transformed into a 
pool thirty feet wide and sixty feet long and eighteen inches 
deep at its deepest point. The work was all done by mem- 
bers of Concord Post, No. 1631.

PUBLIC PLAYGROUNDS COMMITTEE. 



To flic Mayor and Board of Aldermen: 

To pu* into a short report the many and (hversified activi- 
ties of your Playground Committee would be a difficult task. 
We can. at least, assure you that there is a great desire on 
the part of our citizens for adult as well as child recreational 
facilities. For a small city we are fortunate to have for 
our summer program many beautiful playgrounds, a munici- 
pal golf course, and the Memorial Field with its tennis 
courts. In the winter, our hills afford coasting and onv 
ponds excellent skating. 

Your committee elected, for the season of 1930, Air. Paul 
Crowell as Playground Director. From a long list of candi- 
dates he was chosen because of his training and because 
he is a resident of Concord and knows our problems and 
desires. He proved to be an al)le director and left the work 
well organized for another summer. 

The attendance, on the whole, was the largest it has ever 
been on the playgrounds. Competitive sports were much 
enjoyed and an elastic program afforded opportunity for 
timely activities. 

Penacook School Playground was a new project and filled 
a need in that section. Equipment was purchased for this 
area. This Committee is now considering the advisability 
of protecting this playground by a fence on all sides. 

One of the directors had charge and responsibility of the 
swimming hole at Soucook River. It was fairly well pa- 
tronized. It's inaccessibility makes its use somewhat of 
a question, although fifteen boys and girls passed the test as 
Junior and Senior Life Savers. The Red Cross generously 
contributed the time of Miss Beatrice Baker for this work. 
We continue to bring to your attention the need of a munici- 
pal swimming pool. 

The winter program has included protecting coasters and 

132 



PUBLIC PLAYGROUNDS 133 

preparing" skating areas. Hockey is a favorite sport and 
should be encouraged in this locality. 

The Board of Education has given to the Playground 
Committee the use of the Chandler School. Under the sup- 
ervision of the Chairman, this building has been put in ex- 
cellent condition to be used as a community center. At pres- 
ent the Girl Scouts have the use of two rooms, Veterans of 
Foreigns Wars one room, and the fourth room is reserved 
for playground purposes. 

A flag pole, the gift of Mr. Fred M. Dodge of Penacook, 
was erected at the Penacook Playground. Penacook, N. H. 

The Playground Committee acknowledges the help re- 
ceived from Mr. Wellington of the National Recreational 
Association and the generous cooperation of various de- 
partments of the city government.

CEMETERY TRUST 149 

We have audited the accounts of the Trustees of the 
Trust Funds of the City of Concord for the year ending 
December 31, 1930, and hereby certify that in our opinion 
the foregoing- report correctly presents the receipts and ex- 
penditures of the Trustees for the year under review and 
the status of the Trust Funds on December 31, 1930. In 
verifying the receipts we satisfied ourselves that all of the 
income that should have been received by the City from 
the Trust Funds had been received and properly recorded 
in the Trustee's accounts. All disbursements were found 
to be supported by adequate vouchers. Securities included 
in the Trust Funds were verified by actual count and in- 
spection. Bank deposits included in the Trust Funds were 
verified by direct correspondence with the depositories.

We have audited the accounts of Carl H. Foster, Treas- 
urer of the City of Concord, as Custodian of Special Funds, 
for the year ending Dec. 31, 1930, and hereby certify that in 
our opinion the foregoing report correctly presents the status 
of the Special Funds under the control of the City Treas- 
urer on December 31, 1930, and the changes that have oc- 
curred in these funds for the year ending December 31, 
1930. In verifying the receipts we satisfied ourselves that 
all of the income that should have been received by the City 
from the Special Funds had been received and properly re- 
corded in the Treasurer's accounts. All disbursements were 
found to be supported by adequate vouchers. Securities in- 
cluded in the Special Funds were verified by actual count 
and inspection. Bank deposits included in the Special 
Funds were verified by direct correspondence with the de- 
positories.

We have audited the accounts of Carl H. Foster, Treas- 
urer of the City of Concord, for the year ending December 
31, 1930, and hereby certify that in our opinion the fore- 
going report correctly presents the financial transactions of 
the City Treasurer for the year ending December 31, 1930. 
Receipts from City Departments were verified by an audit 
of the accounts kept by each Department so far as this was 
feasible and by a certificate of the amount remitted to the 
City Treasurer by the head of the Department. Receipts 
from outside sources as from the State and County were 
verified by direct correspondence. All disbursements were 
found to be supported by adequate vouchers. 

We also certify the cash balance to be one hundred twenty 
thousand one hundred thirty dollars and fifty-one cents 
($120,130.51), with a note outstanding and unpaid for one 
hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00), due Februrary 7, 
1931 ; the balance of the Bridge Bond Account to be ten 
thousand six hundred thirty-seven dollars and seventy-six 
cents ($10,637.76; Gully Hill Bond Account one hundred 
thirteen dollars and eighty-seven cents ($113.87) ; Memorial 
Athletic Field Bond Account five thousand four dollars and 
thirty-two cents ($5,004.32) ; Sewer Bond Account one

hundred three dollars and twenty-one cents ($103.21) ; City 
Hall and Auditorium Bond Account seven hundred eighty- 
four dollars and seventy-one cents ($784.71) ; and the City 
Water Department nine thousand five hundred nine dollars 
and sixteen cents ($9,509.16). 

In order to give consideration to all expenses for 1930, 
the accounts of the Treasurer v^ere kept open until January 
15, 1931. Receipts for the period beginning January 1, 
1931 and ending January 15, 1931 were included in the in- 
come for 1930. This is in accordance with the practice 
regularly followed by the City.
