INAUGURAL ADDRESS 

By John W. Storrs, Mayor of Concord 



In the 1906 report of the City of Concord, I find in the 
inaugural address of a late, highly respected and illustrious 
mayor, a statement as follows : 

"This occasion, unprecedented in the annals of Concord, 
cannot but impress me. Chosen by the voters of this city to 
a third term as mayor is an honor which I shall always hold 
dear. As it was at my first election and at my second, so it 
has been in my third election, an honor all the more prized, 
because it came without price or solicitation. To be called 
to a public service in this manner is in my opinion to enhance 
the trust and to dignify the office. Surely the debt of grati- 
tude which I owe to my fellow citizens, because of their 
reiterated partiality toward me, is such that I cannot hope 
to lighten it, except by constant diligence, unwearied effort, 
honest and courageous discharge of duty." 

This is a beautiful sentiment, charmingly expressed; its 
assertion borders somewhat on a slight implication of au- 
dacity, but in similar position one cannot resist the feeling 
of satisfaction and uncontrolled elation. The re-election to 
any office cannot be construed, but as a most complimentary 
gesture and an indication of approval of prior activities, 
and confidence that mature thought, proper consideration 
and disposal will be made of problems that in time to come 
present themselves. 

Any of our outstanding accomplishments of the past 
four years are not due to me alone, but to those who with me 
in control of city affairs have co-operated and assisted to 
their utmost in promoting the interests of the municipality. 

I am depending upon and feel sure of future concurrence 
with and by members of this present board and its appoint- 
ees! It is with this imbued courage that I am assuming the 
obligation of this office. 

I think in many inaugurals of the past, there has been 
given a review of bygone undertakings, or performances of 



4 CITY OF CONCORD 

our different departments, and suggestions made as to bet- 
terments and what should be done during the coming period; 
these we will omit at this time. All of our records are public; 
they are readily accessible and comprehensive, and you as 
members of this Board are not in any way relieved of the 
responsibility imposed upon you if you neglect to familiarize 
yourselves with all business of the city, of the different re- 
quirements and activities, including cemeteries, parks, police 
department, fire department, tax collector, health depart- 
ment, weights and measures, water works, playgrounds, 
recreation, trees, sidewalks, sewers, utilities, public institu- 
tions, city library, Works Progress Administration projects, 
lands, buildings, etc., together with holidays and appropria- 
tions for band concerts, Fourth of July, Armistice Day and 
Memorial Day. 

Continued reiteration of statements made in many in- 
augurals are superfluous. 

We all know that in certain cases things are good, in 
others very good, while in many instances they are not so 
good. We must take conditions as they are and make the 
best of it, bearing in mind, however, that we are expected 
within our ability, and with appropriate care to make im- 
provements. 

Today we do not know what may come tomorrow and to- 
morrow never comes. 

Definite statements of what we will do or what will hap- 
pen in the future are beyond our knowledge. 

Would that we could, without fear, have and enjoy every- 
thing that the Constitution provides, that our liberty might 
be in the superlative degree insofar that we might do any- 
thing and everything that we cared to do without injury or 
harm to ourselves or to others, that there should be no unjust 
restrictions on prices or trade, that they may be so liquefied 
that they may be enabled to adapt themselves to the re- 
quirements of and be governed by supply and demand; and 
in every way democracy should be upheld with evident 
manifestations and true realization. 

I cannot resist the temptation to use the word economy, 



INAUGURAL ADDRESS 5 

but on this subject I shall not elaborate and will make but 
little comment. 

Economy, national, state and municipal, as a topic of dis- 
cussion, enjoys a high degree of popularity, but its applica- 
tion to departments of government finds but little favor 
with those whose pet projects are thereby affected. 

Our tax rate for the coming period, you may be assured, 
will be higher. You know why! The reason is apparent and 
in evidence. Certain things and obligations are necessary 
and are impossible of elimination, but otherwise the lessen- 
ing or reduction of taxes is a simple matter of cause and 
effect. When our people are willing to deny themselves those 
things for which public money is expended, taxes will auto- 
matically reduce. 

In undertakings of any magnitude, it would be wise to 
consult an expert. A plan for present and future develop- 
ments should be outlined with a view to a comprehensive, 
final accomplishment. Had advisory planning reached its 
zenith years ago we would not now be confronted with so 
many inconsistencies, disagreeable problems and grotesque 
situations seeking solution. 

You, as members of the Board of Aldermen, are elected 
by, and represent, the people of our city and by your doings 
and actions will be judged and held accountable. I, as your 
mayor, will endeavor to assist and make smooth your way; 
but let us with implacable purpose, be true with unswerving 
fidelity to the trust imposed upon us.

06 CITY OF CONCORD 

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF WATER 
COMMISSIONERS 



To the Honorable Mayor and Board of Aldermen: 

In presenting their sixty-seventh annual report, the Board 
of Water Commissioners are calling your attention to the 
report of the Superintendent, Percy R. Sanders, which re- 
port fully describes the work of the Board for the year 1938, 
covering in detail the financial statement of receipts and 
disbursements; also the laying of new mains on account of 
additional service in different parts of the city, relaying new 
pipe for old and a substantial number of new service con- 
nections. 

The hurricane occurring last September was a real dis- 
aster, as a large part of the standing timber on the west and 
east shores of Penacook Lake was blown down, and it will be 
many years before this growth of timber will be replaced, and 
doubtful if it ever will be to the extent of the old growth. 

The Board discussed at several meetings the problem of 
taking care of the blown down trees, with the result that they 
decided to let out the job of logging and sawing into square- 
edged boards. 

The cost of sawing the logs into lumber is quite substan- 
tial and probably the logs will produce in the neighborhood 
of 800,000 feet of lumber which we hope to be able to market 
for enough money to pay the cost of cleaning up the effects 
of the hurricane. 

It is with a keen sense of loss that we record the death of 
Mr. Burns P. Hodgman, who served on the Board of Water 
Commissioners and also served as Clerk of the Board from 
January 24, 1911, to the date of his death, November 19, 
1938, and we take this opportunity of including in our report 
the resolutions that were adopted by the Board at the time 
of his death: 

Whereas, God in his infinite wisdom has taken Burns P. 
Hodgman from us, 



WATER DEPARTMENT 67 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the members of the 
Water Board of the City of Concord do hereby record their 
sense of loss, both as officers of the City of Concord and as 
individuals, in the termination of their association with Mr. 
Hodgman. As a member of this Board for many years, Mr. 
Hodgman freely and generously gave his time and effort to 
the promotion of this important community enterprise. 
His thorough comprehension of the broad problems of 
policy and his diligent attention to detail were an invaluable 
help in accomplishing the work of the Board. 

Be It Further Resolved, That this resolution be spread upon 
the records of this Board and that a copy thereof be for- 
warded to Mr. Hodgman's family. 

Respectfully submitted, 

For the Board of Water Commissioners 
duly authorized, 

HARRY H. DUDLEY, 

President.

New construction work consisted mainly of replacing small 
mains and supply lines with increased sizes as shown by the 
schedule. An eight-inch cement-lined, cast-iron main was 
laid through North Fruit Street, Centre Street and Kensing- 
ton Road, connecting with School Street at North Fruit 
Street and Kensington Road. 

Hydrants have been set on these replacements in accord- 
ance with the recommendations of the Hydrant Commission. 
Services were relaid w T here necessary or if not relaid, were 
placed in good working condition. 

A woven-wire fence has been built around the auxiliary 
pumping station, with entrance gates that are locked when 
no one is in attendance. There have been no changes, or ad- 
ditions, other than the fence at this station. The plant is in 
excellent working condition and all pumps are operated 
weekly. 

The automatic pumping station has given satisfactory 
service and has not failed to operate when called upon. 

A gasoline-driven centrifugal pump for emergency use 
has been added to the equipment in this station. The unit is 
one manufactured by Fairbanks-Morse Company and will 
pump 400 gallons per minute against a head of 100 feet. 

An average of 62,253 gallons per day is used in the extra 
high service system. 

The water in Penacook Lake has been sufficiently high this 
year to supply all needs without calling upon the auxiliary 
plant. The mean height for the year was 184.712; .288 feet 
below the overflow. All water used from the lake was chlori- 
nated as usual. 

On the afternoon of September 21, the hurricane that 
caused so much destruction throughout New England took 
its toll from the pine and hardwood trees on the watershed 
of Penacook Lake. Most of the damage was done to the trees 
on the west side of the lake. The hurricane seemed to be 
obstructed by the hills on the east side of the lake and went 
over the tops of most of the trees on that side, then de- 
scended, struck on the lake and west side with full force. 
About eight or nine hundred thousand feet of pine was blown

down and the pine plantations, twenty to twenty-five years 
old, were ruined. A sawmill has been set up at the lake and 
the lumber is being sawed and stacked. 

The report annexed shows the financial condition of the 
Water Works. The total cost of the plant to December 31, 
1938, is $1,811,741.35, the depreciation total is $586,- 
279.06 and the depreciated value is $1,225,462.29. $17,- 
000.00 in bonds has been retired and the bonded debt is now 
$193,000.00.

FIRE DEPARTMENT 



To the Board of Mayor and Aldermen: 

In accordance with the requirements of the city ordinance, 
I herewith submit for your consideration the report of the 
Fire Department for the year 1938. 

The department responded to 513 alarms as follows: 
Bells, 62; stills, 451. 

The number of alarms were more than the previous year 
by six. There was an increase in property loss due to several 
warehouse fires. 

All apparatus and equipment is in good condition. Neces- 
sary repairs and replacements were made, work being done 
in the department shop. 

The department is still in need of adequate ladder equip- 
ment, and I recommend the purchase of an aerial ladder 
truck. 

As a result of the September hurricane, the fire alarm sys- 
tem was badly damaged, necessitating the rebuilding of all 
outside construction, which will be completed in the near 
future. 

The several stations under the care of this department are 
in good condition. Station 3 was rewired and painted, and 
storm damage repairs were made on stations 5, 6, and 8. A 
modern station should be built to house the apparatus of 
Engine 5, in the Plains district. 

A yearly hose test was made, and some was rejected. A 
thousand feet of hose should be purchased for the coming 
year. 

Fire prevention work was carried on by the regular force, 
and the results of this work have proven highly satisfactory. 



FIRE DEPARTMENT 85 

The co-operation of the citizens with the inspectors is greatly 
appreciated. 

For the support and co-operation of your Board, and the 
heads of departments, I wish to express my appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. T. HAPPNY, 

Chief of Department.

FIRST ANNUAL REPORT OF THE PROBATION 
OFFICER FOR 1938 



On June 20, 1938, I was appointed Probation Officer for 
the City of Concord, pursuant to the provisions of Section 5 
of Chapter 143 of the Laws of 1937, and herewith submit my 
report for the period ending December 31, 1938. 

Since my appointment, your Court has referred to me 
thirty-three cases. Thirty were juvenile delinquents and 
three concerned the failure of the husband or parent to prop- 
erly support his family. Of the juvenile delinquents, five 
were committed to the State Industrial School at Man- 
chester, N. H. Three were committed for violating their 
probation rules and two were committed because it was felt 
that probation would not help them. From the three adults 
under my supervision for non-support, there has been col- 
lected and turned over to their dependents $150.60. From 
the juvenile delinquents in my charge for petty larceny and 
similar offenses, there has been collected and paid to the 
complainants in restitution $36. Ten juvenile cases were in- 
vestigated, in which no Court action was taken, because the 
offenses committed did not warrant it. 

Of the thirty juvenile delinquents, fifteen committed the 
offense of entering a building and taking articles of some 
value, four took articles from parked automobiles, six took 
articles valued at $25 or more, three set fire to an un- 
occupied building, one committed immoral acts and one 
committed a sex offense. Two juveniles were twelve years of 
age, nine were thirteen years of age, four were fourteen years 
of age, eleven were fifteen years of age, two were sixteen 
years of age, and two were seventeen years of age. The pe- 
riod of probation in these cases varies from one to five years, 
depending upon the seriousness of the offense committed, as 
well as the need for supervision of the particular case. 

The total number of visits by probationers to my office 



PROBATION OFFICER 97 

was approximately three hundred and the number of field 
visits to homes and places of employment of probationers 
totaled sixty-seven. Six positions were found for six proba- 
tioners and one is unemployed at the present time, because 
he is under sixteen years of age. A total of seventy-five con- 
tacts were made by my department with other agencies and 
community resources, in behalf of probationers during this 
period. 

A majority of the juvenile probationers have shown im- 
provement scholastically and have evidenced an improved 
moral tone. The latter may have contributed to their im- 
provement in scholarship. 

A review of the cases of juvenile delinquency indicates the 
principal cause to be lack of parental supervision. Either the 
mother or father was absent from the home because of 
death, divorce or separation, and the other parent was at 
work away from home in order to support the children. In 
other words, the usual parental supervision and home life 
were lacking. 

It is generally conceded that best results are obtained in 
probation work when the case load does not exceed seventy- 
five cases per Probation Officer engaged in full time work. At 
present, the City Probation Officer is employed on a part 
time basis. With thirty-three cases referred to my depart- 
ment in six months' time and ten cases more referred for in- 
vestigation, but in which no Court action was taken, it is 
probable that before the end of another six months' period, 
the case load will demand all of my time, if the best results 
are to be attained. 

Co-operation is the basis of success in probation work. 
Such success as has attended my efforts is due in a large part 
to the whole-hearted co-operation of the State Probation 
Department, Police Department, and the Relief and Welfare 
Departments of the city and state. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT L. COLBY, 

Probation Officer.

Increase over 1937, 21,509 

So much has happened to the library within the last year, 
that it is rather difficult to remember everything that has 
been done. In January Dr. Milton J. Ferguson, president of 
the American Library Association, came to Concord to make 
a survey of the library and to tell us how our methods of 
operation could be made more modern and efficient. Due to 
his report and advice, the library has a goal and can hope to 
reach it in the years to come. We started out in 1938 with an 
increased circulation, which has continued straight through 
the year, until we gave out 21,509 more books than we did in 
1937. 

Last winter we began to look for a place for temporary 
quarters, in anticipation of the library buildings being taken 
by the State of New Hampshire. Thanks to Monsignor 
Buckley and the people of St. John's parish we were able to 
secure the club house at 42 Pleasant Street and started mov- 
ing in April. Needless to say it was a tremendous task and a 
great expense, but with the untiring efforts of the staff, 
Trustees and movers, it was finally accomplished and the 
Concord Public Library, which had been in the Fowler 
Building fifty years, opened May 2, 1938, in the new location 
after being closed only two working days. The staff can never 
be thanked enough for the long hours and hard work for 



118 CITY OF CONCORD 

which they received no extra salary. It was not easy to move 
forty thousand books in order, as well as all equipment, light 
fixtures, etc., and a countless number of valuable birds. In 
our present quarters our books range from the attic to the 
cellar, with a large number of the older books and the Good- 
hue Bird Collection stored in the Walker Street chapel. We 
expected that while we were in temporary quarters we would 
have little business, but apparently the public likes the new 
quarters for we have had an increase of two thousand books 
per month. The staff, which consists of six people, is doing 
the work of at least ten assistants; all are greatly overworked 
and consequently it is not possible to provide library users 
with as good service as could be wished. 

In May the library entertained this district of the New 
Hampshire Library Association and, because of our lack of 
space, Major Otis Hammond kindly allowed us to use the 
New Hampshire Historical Building. Two members of the 
Board took part in the all-day session and four Trustees were 
present at the meeting. In June the Librarian and one staff 
member attended a week's regional library conference at 
Manchester, Vermont, and one Trustee was at part of the 
convention. In July Miss Doris King, of the staff, left for six 
weeks' study in library work at Columbia University. 

Last summer plans for the new building were begun after 
the Public Works Administration had made a grant of $111,- 
688 and Mr. Alfred Morton Githens and Francis Keally of 
New York were chosen as architects, with Eugene Magenau 
and Stewart Lyford of this city as associates. With the legal 
advice of Mr. Dudley Orr, the land on Green Street, from the 
house occupied by Bishop Dallas to Prince Street, was pur- 
chased for a new library site and in August Mayor Storrs 
broke ground for the new building, which is now in the 
process of construction. 

Three members of the staff, Miss Mary Dennett, Miss 
Josephine Brown and Miss Ruth Melvin attended the an- 
nual meeting of the New Hampshire Library Association at 
Durham in August. All of the staff were present at the an- 
nual banquet and two Trustees also attended the meeting. 



PUBLIC LIBRARY 119 

At the Citizens' Library luncheon, held at the Rumford 
Coffee House in the fall, two staff members and three 
Trustees were present. 

The reference room, in charge of Miss Dennett, has been 
used by 5,575 people and has been a very active place due 
partly to the school children and Boston University exten- 
sion course taken by many of the teachers. 

A new registration was started in December in anticipa- 
tion of the new building and there are now 10,115 registered 
borrowers of the main library and 1,342 new borrowers this 
last year. Also in December an electric charging machine for 
giving out books was installed and this should save the staff 
a great deal of time. This machine is the first one to be used 
in New Hampshire. 

We have purchased 2,175 books this year and 125 books 
have been given, making a total of 2,300 books added. 1,614 
books have been discarded, leaving a total of 40,686 books in 
the library. The quality of the book stock has gone down, be- 
cause there has not been enough money to replace the books, 
which have worn out in this year of greatly increased use. 

Last summer the library gratefully received the following 
bequest under the will of Andrew Abbott: 

"I give and bequeath unto the Public Library of the City 
of Concord, New Hampshire, the sum of one thousand dol- 
lars in memory of my brother Stephen F. Abbott, said sum 
to be held in trust, and the annual income thereof to be used 
for the purchase of new books for said Library." 

Children's Library 

The children's library has had a very active year. In April 
this part of the library was moved to an upstairs room at 42 
Pleasant Street in one morning, so that Mrs. Fred Clement, 
children's librarian, was able to open at one o'clock as usual. 
Because of lack of space in temporary quarters the high 
school department is in the same room with the first six 
grades, but in the new library the young people will have a 
separate room. During the spring the children's librarian had 



120 CITY OF CONCORD 

a very attractive scene depicting Snow White and the Seven 
Dwarfs, which evoked much interest from the children. 

In July Mrs. Clement was granted a six months' leave of 
absence by the Trustees and Miss Doris Tappan took charge 
of the children's work for the summer. She had a very suc- 
cessful reading club of thirty-five members. A ship, the S.S. 
Reading, was built in the center of the children's library and 
its cargo contained the books to be read for the cruise. Each 
passenger had an anchor with blue stars for fiction and gold 
stars for non-fiction. At the close of the contest a nautical 
party was held in St. John's Hall, with book prizes for the 
winners and three puppet shows produced under the super- 
vision of the New Hampshire Public Library Commission. 
An account of the reading club appeared in the magazine 
Young Wings and the Junior Literary Guild presented the 
children's library with a book. 

In September Miss Helen Morey, graduate of Syracuse 
Library School, took charge of the children's library and has 
organized groups of various ages, for story-hours held every 
Saturday morning. Miss Morey tells stories to the children 
and Miss King teaches them songs and plays for them. Dur- 
ing Book Week in November children from the different 
schools visited the library, and a puppet show, presented by 
Katherine Foster and Cynthia Colby, attracted several hun- 
dred children. The children's library was nicely decorated 
for Book Week with flags and dolls of all nations, represent- 
ing the theme "New Books — New Worlds" and many new 
books were on display. Most of the elementary schools in the 
Union School District borrow books from the library for 
pleasure reading and Miss Ann Killeen, librarian at the 
senior and junior high schools, has borrowed many books for 
the libraries there. A new registration has been started in the 
children's department, so that with the new building all 
children below seventh grade will have different cards and a 
separate file. The week before the Christmas holidays Miss 
Morey and Miss King visited all the suburbs, giving Christ- 
mas music and stories for the children. 



public library 121 

Branches 

The largest branch is at Penacook and is in charge of Miss 
Ruth Melvin of the main library staff. It is open every Tues- 
day and Friday afternoons and Miss Melvin has given out 
13,375 books this year, an increase of 5,040 over 1937. Dur- 
ing Book Week Mrs. Edward Towne told stories to a group 
of fifty-five children and Miss Doris King played and sang to 
them. The Penacook schools made attractive Book Week 
posters, which were on display in the branch room. There are 
now 576 registered borrowers at Penacook and 218 new bor- 
rowers this year. When the main library was moved more 
book cases were installed and there are about 2,500 books in 
that branch. 

In East Concord a collection of books is kept at the home 
of Mrs. Herbert Stuart and these are available at all times 
and are changed for a different set of books as often as 
possible. 

At Concord Heights a branch in charge of Miss Rosemary 
Somes was opened in June at the Grange Hall and continued 
there until fall when, because of lack of money to pay for 
heating the hall, it was moved to the Highland Club next to 
the Harriet P. Dame School. We are grateful to the Highland 
Club for the building, light and heat, which they provide 
without charge. 

Miss Somes had a reading club last summer for the chil- 
dren, which ended with a party and prizes for the children 
reporting on the largest number of books. This branch is 
open every Tuesday and Saturday afternoon and is now in 
charge of Miss Rena Coulombe. In November a story-hour 
was held with stories by Miss Morey and violin music by 
Miss King of the main library staff and sixty children were 
present. 2,782 books were given out from this branch. 

In October the public library was asked to take over the 
West Concord Library as a branch. Thanks to Chief William 
T. Happney of the Concord Fire Department, we are al- 
lowed the use of the large room over the West Concord Fire 
Station, with heat and light included, and the library was 



122 CITY OP CONCORD 

moved there last fall. Miss Barbara Loiselle is in charge and 
the library is open every Tuesday and Friday afternoon and 
Friday evening. About fifty children were present for a story- 
hour, put on last fall by members of the staff of the main 
library. The people of West Concord should feel very grate- 
ful to Reverend and Mrs. Franklin Thompson for the work 
they have done in starting and building up the West Con- 
cord Library and we hope that the public library will have 
enough money to carry on the work and give good service. 

Conclusion 

Of course our temporary quarters are very small — one 
visiting librarian called it a "doll's library" — it is cut-up 
and crowded, but we are fortunate in being able to keep the 
library open and we hope that our library users will continue 
their cheerful acceptance of many minor and some major 
inconveniences, especially with a new building in the near 
future with plenty of room for the whole community. 

We are grateful to the Trustees for all the time and effort 
they have put into moving the library and planning the new 
building — probably never in the history of the library has 
there been so much responsibility for a board. 

I am especially grateful to the staff for their splendid co- 
operation in this hard year — for it has been a difficult one 
in many ways — to the interested groups before whom I 
have spoken this year, to the Concord Monitor for the fine 
publicity it has given the library and to all the people who 
have given of their time and money in the service of the 
library. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION F. HOLT, 

Librarian.

REPORT OF SEALER OF WEIGHTS 
AND MEASURES 



To His Honor the Mayor and the Board of Aldermen: 

In addition to the usual routine work during the period 
January 1, 1938 to January 1, 1939, your Sealer of Weights 
and Measures has responded to many requests of Concord 
citizens and officials of city departments, some of which have 
been of unusual nature. Several freight carloads of coal were 
weighed for the purpose of ascertaining if correct weight had 
been delivered; bins of coal were measured to estimate the 
amount therein; wood "in the loose" measured; and 25 bags 
of coal weighed. 

Occasionally an inspector, in the course of his duties, will 
come across an antiquated weighing or measuring device, 
which no longer adequately serves the purpose for which it 
was designed. This was the case of a steelyard, which was 
found inaccurate and, consequently, confiscated. There are 
few such devices now in existence, as more modern methods 
of weighing commodities are employed. A similar condition 
exists in connection with dry measures. Seventeen were 
tested during the year, although most commodities are sold 
by weight rather than measure. 

Your sealer tested 1,076 scales, 728 of which were found 
correct and were sealed, 312 were adjusted before being 
sealed, 16 confiscated and 20 condemned for repairs. 

There were 1,074 weights tested, 1,058 being found correct 
and 16 adjusted before being sealed. 

Liquid measures to the number of 5,654 were tested, the 
majority of which were found correct and were sealed, 4 
were adjusted before being sealed, 9 confiscated and 2 
condemned for repairs. 

There were 408 automatic pumps tested, 303 of which 
were found correct and were sealed, 97 were adjusted before 
being sealed, 1 confiscated, and 7 condemned for repairs. It 



126 CITY OF CONCORD 

was necessary to make reinspections in connection with the 
latter in order to seal the pumps after they had been put in 
proper condition. There were tested 3,073 oil measuring 
devices. 

The usual, careful supervision of commodities packaged in 
advance of sale was made to ascertain that customers were 
receiving correct weight, and also that their net contents 
were expressed in accordance with the requirements. In some 
instances the packages were not marked properly, while 
others did not contain the correct weight. The results were as 
follows: 4,329 correct, 52 over and 130 under weight. 

Ten (10) loads of coal in the process of delivery were 
weighed, 2 of which contained the amount specified on the 
certificates, 4 over and 4 under weight. 

Thirty-six (36) yardsticks were tested, 3 of which were 
confiscated, while the others were found to be accurate. Two 
(2) cloth-measuring machines were tested and found correct. 
There were measured 56 truck bodies used in the delivery of 
wood, all of which were found correct with the exception of 
five. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE A. DEARBORN, 

Sealer of Weights and Measures.

HEALTH DEPARTMENT 

To the Mayor, Honorable John W. Storrs, the Board of Health 
and the Board of Aldermen: 

The following report is submitted to you from the Depart- 
ment of Health for the year 1938: 

The general health of the city has been exceptionally good 
and a decrease shown in certain diseases. There is evidence 
of more concerted effort in combating some diseases, such as 
diabetes and nephritis. The department has given much at- 
tention toward decreasing communicable disease by steriliz- 
ing of utensils in eating places, blood testing of food handlers 
and a rigid surveillance of all serious contagion. 

The United States Public Health Service has supplied 
funds for a Plumbing and Housing Inspector and a Public 
Health Nurse. The work of inspecting housing and plumbing 
conditions has been carried on by Mr. Ellsworth B. Phil- 
brick. He reports much improvement in the past year and 
with the continued co-operation of the property owners, it is 
hoped considerable more work may be accomplished this 
coming year. 

The Public Health Nurse, Mrs. Sarah R. Siroy, R.N., has 
continued to give service to the Parochial Schools of Concord 
and Penacook. She has assisted at the venereal disease clinics 
and made many home visits in connection with this work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

DONALD G. BARTON, M.D., 

Sanitary Officer.

REPORT OF THE PARK AND CEMETERY 
COMMISSIONERS 



To the Mayor and the Park and Cemetery Commission: 

Throughout the cemetery system of Concord, special 
attention has been given during 1938 to thoroughly fertiliz- 
ing all grass plots, shrubbery, trees and flowers, as well as 
maintaining the regular standard of upkeep and improving 
upon it when possible. 

In Blossom Hill Cemetery, Block MM was graded with a 
rough fill; six-tenths of a mile of permanent black surface 
road completed; the pond finished with ashlar sides, dredged, 
a spillway built, and a cement bridge erected; a five-stall 
garage added to the present one; surface drainage put in 
from the South Gate to the present Tool House, and both 
the foundation and roof of the Chapel repaired. 

Pine Grove Cemetery is rapidly becoming a modern 
cemetery, due to the removal of twenty-six curbed lots with 
careful grading. Soucook Cemetery had new trees and 
shrubbery set out. Both Maple Grove and Woodlawn 
Cemeteries roadways were repaired, shrubbery fertilized, 
and many unsightly trees and stubs removed. In Old North 
Cemetery, the Stickney Mausoleum was completed and 
landscaped and a trust fund of $10,000 placed. 

At the beginning of 1938 there were approximately 1,900 
maple trees in the Nursery. In the spring an additional 1,000 
trees were purchased and previous to the hurricane 700 of 
these nursery stock trees were set out along the city streets 
and in the parks. This left a balance of 2,200 trees in the 
Nursery, which will be available in the coming spring and 
fall to replace the many public trees felled during the Sep- 
tember storm and trees that will have to be removed because 
of injuries. As nursery stock is much higher since the de- 
mand has become greater and promises to stay so, this well- 
stocked Nursery of Concord's promises to be the means of a 



150 CITY OF CONCORD 

substantial saving in 1939. Over 1,500 street trees were 
fertilized. The City of Concord has been particularly for- 
tunate in its insect control. Only three trees in the city 
showed any defoliation resulting from Elm Leaf Beetle, 
because the trees instead of being sprayed once were sprayed 
twice. The Japanese Beetle showed a decided decrease, no 
entirely new infested area was discovered and only one 
section on Green Street showed a slight increase. Also the 
Maple Bark Borer was controlled by fertilizing and trim- 
ming trees. 

The usual work was carried on throughout the park sys- 
tem: mowing, planting, trimming, general upkeep and 
spraying. The swimming pools had a successful season with 
five pools in use. These pools met with State Board of 
Health requirements in regard to chlorine content and 
bacteria. Only one accident occurred in the pools and that 
one was at Kimball. 

At White Park, a great deal of grading was carried on and 
a retaining wall of ashlar was erected at the base of High 
Street sloop. The ball diamond was rough graded, but left 
unfinished due to the hurricane. Walk-ways were rip- 
rapped and stone dust spread on the main walks. This type 
of walk seems not only practical and lasting, but an attrac- 
tive asset as well. A new dam was built at the outlet of the 
pond, which regulates the height of the pond and drains the 
low area as well. 

In Rollins Park, a lily pond was built, the flower bed on 
the Broadway side resoiled and approximately 700 new 
plants and shrubs set out. Trees in the Deer Park were 
trimmed and a new water line laid to the duck pond. 

Garrison Park had a much needed safety measure taken 
in the form of the filling in of the old brook bed which 
was then regraded. A new bridge was built across the brook, 
benches set out and the general upkeep was increased. 

Many old shrubs and hedges were removed and replaced 
in West Garden.

REPORT OF THE CITY PLANNING BOARD 



Establishment of Board 

Recognizing the need for a fact-finding and advisory- 
planning agency to assist in promoting the best development 
of the City of Concord and following the practice adopted in 
1,700 other cities in the United States, the Board of Alder- 
men on April 11, 1938, passed an ordinance establishing the 
City Planning Board. 

Functions 

The City Planning Board has no powers, but its duties are 
many-fold. Briefly, it is the function of the Board to act in an 
advisory capacity to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen in 
formulating plans and policies affecting the present and 
future physical development of Concord. The activities of 
the Planning Board supplement, but in no way usurp, any of 
the functions of the governmental agencies of the city. 

Board Membership 

The City Planning Board is composed of nine members, 
namely, the Mayor, an administrative official of the city 
selected by the Mayor, a member of the Board of Aldermen 
selected by that body, and six citizens appointed by the 
Mayor. The members of the Planning Board are James M. 
Langley, chairman; Dudley W. Orr, secretary; John B. 
Jameson, Frederick P. Clark, Austin E. Page, Raymond D. 
Edwards, Mayor John W. Storrs, City Engineer Edward E. 
Beane and Alderman Harold D. Merrill. The members of the 
City Planning Board receive no compensation. The oath of 
office was administered to the Board at the first meeting 
held June 1, 1938. 

Staff 

Since the Board members serve at no salary, a small staff 
is necessary to permit the conduct of studies and preparation 



156 CITY OF CONCORD 

of plans. A program of activities having been submitted to 
the Board of Aldermen for its consideration, the Aldermen 
on September 12, 1938, made available to the Planning 
Board an appropriation of $983 to defray expenses for the 
balance of the 1938 budget year. On October 3, 1938, Gustaf 
H. Lehtinen was appointed by the Planning Board to carry 
on its research studies. Shortly afterwards a draftsman was 
added to the staff. 

Activities and Accomplishments 

Although the Board's staff has been working only since 
October, 1938, definite progress has already been made in the 
study of the city's development and problems of immediate 
concern. Finding in the Planning Board an aid in the con- 
sideration of varied problems, the Mayor and the Board of 
Aldermen have referred to the Planning Board several mat- 
ters for study and recommendations. While these have 
slowed down the rate of progress on the normal studies of 
Concord's long-range possibilities and requirements, the 
Board has been glad to assist the Mayor and the Board of 
Aldermen and in so doing indicate the fact-finding service 
available in the Planning Board's staff. 

1. September 1938 Storm 

Before the newly organized Planning Board and its staff of 
one had a chance to catch its breath, the severe flood and 
gale visited the city. Instructing its research worker to sur- 
vey and determine the extent of storm damages, the Plan- 
ning Board was able to present to the Mayor and the Board 
of Aldermen, within one week after the staff had been em- 
ployed, a comprehensive report* summarizing the estimated 
damage wrought by the storm to the various types of public 
and private property, as well as a record of the activities of 
the citizens, organizations and governmental departments 
during and immediately following the emergency. It is sig- 

*A limited number of copies of this report are available at the Plan- 
ning Board office. 



PLANNING BOARD 157 

nificant that the Planning Board's estimates approximated 
very closely actual damages as ascertained later. 

2. Study of Land Use and Development 

During the remaining months of 1938, the staff undertook 
and completed a survey and study of the use and develop- 
ment of land in the city. This is the first in a series of studies 
fundamental to the consideration of plans for the future re- 
quirements and development of Concord. The use of every 
piece of property in the city was recorded on maps which are 
on file in the Planning Board's office. The results of this 
study were printed and made available to the public in a 
report* entitled, "The Development and Use of Land in 
Concord, New Hampshire." 

Although a knowledge of the uses of land is a fundamental 
step in the process of laying a foundation from which will 
evolve the City Plan, an immediate value of making this 
study is to permit an analysis of existing trends of land use in 
relation to an intelligent amendment of the present zoning 
ordinance. This task will be one of the first to which the 
Planning Board will give its consideration during the coming 
year. 

3. "Health Center" Study 

At the request of the Mayor, the Planning Board in- 
structed the staff to survey the advisability and feasibility of 
the erection of a combined health and social service center in 
Concord. Upon completion of this study, the Planning 
Board recommended to the Mayor that such action be de- 
ferred for the present, because the actual demand on the part 
of the various agencies concerned did not appear to warrant 
an expenditure of city funds at the present time. 

4. Army Air Base Study 

A study of the advantages and disadvantages connected 
with the proposed location of an Army Air Base in Concord 

*A limited number of copies of this report are available at the Plan- 
ning Board office. 



158 CITY OF CONCORD 

was undertaken by the Board's staff at the request of the 
Airport Commission. Chief among the advantages involved 
were the following : the large amount of permanent construc- 
tion and expansion, increased population, increased purchas- 
ing power, growth of small industries dependent on the air 
base, employment of local people in construction, and estab- 
lishing Concord as the focal point of parallel expansion of 
civil aeronautic activity. Outstanding disadvantages were 
listed as loss of present civil airport, loss of existing facilities 
(such as water mains, streets, sewers, etc.), tax loss, possible 
change in character of population, noise nuisance, danger of 
accident from take-offs or loosening of bombs over city, and 
risk, in time of war, from enemy attack. At a joint meeting 
with the Commission, the results of this study were com- 
municated to the Airport Commission and turned over to 
that body for further consideration. 

5. Base Maps of City 

Two new base maps of the city have been prepared by the 
Planning Board. One is a map of the entire city at a scale of 
one inch equals one thousand feet, while the other is a map of 
the built-up portions of the city at a scale of one inch equals 
four hundred feet. The Planning Board recommends copies 
of these base maps as highly desirable for use by the public 
needing large workable maps. 

6. Other Activities 

Other activities of the Planning Board include considera- 
tion of the proposed highway work program of the Board of 
Public Works, a study of the possibilities of taking a city 
census, consideration of the compilation of a city history, 
and the preparation of a police patrol map. 

Future Program 

Other matters vitally important to the future develop- 
ment of Concord and distinctly a part of the City Plan 
which will receive the attention of the Planning Board as 



PLANNING BOARD 159 

soon as the staff can make the necessary preliminary surveys 
include the following: 

1. A plan showing the best use of land in the city, includ- 
ing a recommendation of those areas which should be 
developed first in order to use to the fullest advantage 
the public improvements (such as streets, sewers, water 
mains, etc.) already existing, thereby conserving public 
funds. 

2. Suggested changes in the zoning ordinance. 

3. A comprehensive street plan indicating necessary 
changes in the street and transportation systems and 
parking opportunities to assist in the promotion of bet- 
ter land use, and further indicating what roads and 
streets might be abandoned or maintained in less expen- 
sive fashion without interfering with the economic use 
of land, and thereby reduce costs of providing public 
services. 

4. A plan for the provision of recreational facilities and 
opportunities necessary to a healthy population. 

5. Recommendations for the correction of those causes of 
tax delinquency associated with improper use of land. 

6. Recommendations for a city policy with regard to tax 
exempt lands. 

7. A plan for the acquisition of necessary public building 
sites and public lands in proper locations and in ad- 
vance of intensive land development thereby decreas- 
ing the cost to the city of such necessary land ac- 
quisitions. 

8. A suggested program for the control of new subdivision 
of land in order to prevent premature and unnecessary 
city expenditures for streets and other public im- 
provements.
