ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING 
March 8th 191+3 

The annual business meeting of the Tovm of Chelmsford was held in the Upper 
Town Hall, in Chelmsford Centre on March 8th 19^3, at 7:30 P.M. 

The meeting was oalled to order by Moderator Walter Perham and Town Clerk 
Harold C. Petterson was requested to read the Warrant. After the Warrant was 
partly read, on a motion made by Wendell P. Harvey, it was voted to waive the 
further reading of the Warrant. 

Upon the request of Harold C. Petterson, a personal privilege was granted, 
Mr. Petterson said: 

"We have with us tonight, a man who is retiring from publio offioe in the 
Town of Chelmsford. This man has served the Town of Chelmsford for eighteen 
consecutive years. From 1925 to 1930 inclusive he served as a member of the Fin- 
ance Board, and from 1931 to 19^2 inclusive he has served us as a Member of the 
Board of Selectmen, Member of the Board of Publio Welfare and a Uember of the 
Board of Old Age Assistance. He has served us through the hard period of deoress- 
ion. He has served U6 well. He is and always has been a gentlemen. Mr. Moder- 
ator,. I move you, that a rising vote of aporeciation be given to James Alexander 
Grant for the efficient service that he has rendered to the Town of Chelmsford 
in the past eighteen years. And it was so voted. 

Under Article One: 

On a motion made by Mr. Albert Davis, it was voted to accept the Town report 
as printed. 

The committee to confer with the Eastern Massachusetts Street Railway for 
better bus service, had no report to make. 

The oommittee on new by-laws had no report to make. 

The committee on building an addition to 1he '"festlands School reported that 
their report was published in the Tovai Report. 

Mr Arnaud Blackadar was elected a member of the Varaey Playground Committee 
for a term of three years. 

Under the report of the Finance Committee, Town Treasurer Harold C. Petterson, 
remarked on the preamble of this report, in so far as the report warned the voters 
of the tax rate "skyrocketing". Mr °etterson recited the tax rates from 1928 to 
19^42 inclusive and explained that the tax rate in that period averaged $ 32.09. 
He also explained the amount of free cash used in each particular year. Mr. Pett- 
erson also explained that the tax rate for 19l£. could have been ^3.20 less than 

21 



the figure set by the Board of Assessors. Claiming that the sum of approximately 
$25,000.00 had been taken from the taxpayers in excess of what it actually cost 
to run the town in the year 1942. Mr Petterson said that he believed that the 
tax rate for 1942 had been set, reluctantly, at $33*°0 by the Board of Assessors, 
and that the Tax Commissioner would not approve a rate less than the rate of 
$3?*00, and he believed that the Board of Assessors should be the Board to deter- 
mine the tax rate in the i 'own of Chelmsford. 

So as to get the sentiment of the voters in regard to his comments, Mr Petter- 
son made the following motion: 

"That it be the sentiment of this meeting that the Assessors make the tax 
rate for the Town of Chelmsford for the year 1943 > oommensurate with the approp- 
riations made in 1943 to be raised by tax levy", and it was so voted.

MIDDLESEX COUNTY EXTENSION SERVICE 

This is a report of the work of the Middlesex County Extension Ser- 
vice in the town of Chelmsford for 19^3. 

Because of war conditions, the Staff of the Extension Service had 
to devote a great deal of time this year to overhead organization 
work pertaining to machinery rationing, food distribution orders, 
farm labor and other regulations, as issued by our Government, and 
establishing the number of war units on certain farms for Selective 
Service Boards. An attempt was made to see to it that these regu- 
lations were explained and applied to local conditions. 

Poultrymen were furnished information on price ceilings, the feed 
situation and other emergency problems. Also, assistance was given 
on the improvement of poultry ranges, control of diseases and re- 
ducing waste. Many home visits were made to help poultrymen with 
specific problems. 

Information on milk marketing has been given individual farmers. All 
have been furnished information on control of Bang's disease, 
through calfhood vaccination; several interested have been urged to 
sign up under the Joint Federal-State Program. Information on con- 
trol of mastitis infection was given. Individual farmers have been 
advised on crop planning. 

General information was given on victory gardens and a meeting was 
held with the Alliance at the Unitarian Church, at which time the 
importance of the home garden in the food program was discussed. 

The Extension Service cooperated with the Mothers' Clubs of several 
of the churches In Chelmsford and supplied special speakers on foods 
and nutrition for their meetings. Also a foods demonstration on 
Meat Extenders was given at the Parent-Teacher Association. Two can- 
ning demonstrations were given for two different community groups. 

There were twenty-six girls enrolled in club work in Chelmsford dur- 
ing the winter, under the leadership of Miss Louise Glll( clothing; ) 
Miss Jeanette Straughan( crafts ) ; and Miss Mary Mulcahy(home furnish- 
ing). Mrs. Percy Beardsley was Town Chairman. Eight girls -carried 
on canning club work during the summer, and exhibited at the annual 
Grange Fair in S e ptember. Sixty-three boys and fourteen girls car- 
ried on projects in gardening, poultry, dairy, pig and handicraft. 
In the garden contest sponsored by the Middlesex N rth Agricultural 
Society, ribbons were awarded to Robert and Gilbert Riley, William 
Sherman, James T w ohey, Jeannette, Mary, Rita Theresa, John and Jo- 
seph Straughan.

This year the Police Department aided by the Auxiliary Police 
sponsored halloween parties In the six sections of the Town, and 
the success of these parties was greatly due to the untiring ef- 
forts of the workers of the following organizations: 

Chelmsford Grange, Westlands Improvement Association, South 
Chelmsford Parent-Teachers 1 Association, South Row Improvement 
Association, East Chelmsford Parent-Teachers' Association, North 
Chelmsford Parent-Teachers' Association. I wish at this time to 
publicly thank them for their splendid cooperation. I would rec- 
ommend that this practice be followed each year as the purpose of 
these parties was to try to prevent vandalism, and from the re- 
sults it was clearly shown us that these parties were beneficial 
to the Town. 

I wish to express my deep appreciation for the cooperation 
shown me by my fellow-officers, Miss Christina Simpson, policewoman, 
and the Board of Selectmen. I also wish to thank the general pub- 
lic for the many kindnesses shown me during the year 19^3 •

REPORT OF BOARD OF HEALTH AGENT 



To Board of Health 
Chelmsford, M a ss. 

Gentlemen: 

Following are the diagnosed contagious diseases for the year 19^3 
(a case Is not recognized as being diagnosed unless seen by a 
physician) : 

Chicken Pox 5 Tuberculosis (pulmonary) 2 

Measles 13 Pneumoniae lobar) 3 

German measles 15 Dog Bite 11 

Mumps 2 Dlptheria 1 

Scarlet Fever 2 Typhoid Fever 1 

As one may note, we have had a mixed group of communicable diseases. 
People were very cooperative in matters of quarantine, etc., and 
thus there was no serious epidemic started. It is hoped that the 
townspeople will cooperate with the Board of Health, being sure 
that cases of communicable disease are reported. Children absent 
from school five days or more must have a certificate from the school 
physician. 

In May, 19^3 a Diptheria immunization clinic was held. 
Number of pre-school children immunized 12 
Number of school children immunized 86 

Parents are urged to have their children immunized against this 
dread disease either by their own private physician or at our clinic. 

Inasmuch as teeth constitute the problem of being the major defect 
found among school children, parents are advised to take their child- 
ren to their family dentist for treatment. It is my opinion that a 
dental clinic would be advisable, if a town appropriation was made 
to equip a room and carry on this work. 

All pupils have been given a physical examination by the school 
physicians, Dr. Arthur G. S c oboria and Dr. J. Edmund Boucher. The 
physicals were more extensive in that the pupils feet were examined 
for deformities and Athlete's Foot. Those students participating 
in football and basketball were given rigid examinations. 

I conducted a Red Cross Home Nursing Course at the high school this 
year. 

Number receiving Red Cross certificates 10 

Following is a report of school activities:

Pupils taken home because of illness. 76 

Following is the T.B. report:

Number of children taken to Waltham IS 

Number of homes visited 71 

I have had consultations with members of the State Department of 
Public Health and also attended the Nurses' Convention at the State 

House. 

The townspeople should be aware of the fact that it is of great im- 
portance to them to attend to the correction of defects as soon as 
they are noted. Prompt diagnosis and treatment proves to be most 
effective.

mittee, Mr. Wright, Mr. Burns, teachers and parents for their co- 
operation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Christina N. Simpson, R.N. 

REPORT OF BOARD OF HEALTH 

To the Citizens of the Town of Chelmsford: 

The Board of Health organized for the year with Harry L. Shedd as 
Chairman and Raymond H. Greenwood as Secretary. Edmund J. Welch, at 
this time was serving in the Armed Services of our country. He did 
not resign as a member of the Board because he was able to maintain 
an active interest by being present at the regular monthly meetings, 
despite the fact that he was stationed over three hundred miles away, 
Mr. Welch received an Honorable Medical Discharge from the Army on 
September 17, 194-3, after serving approximately one year. 

The usual routine business of the Department was handled throughout 
the year. Miss Christina N. Simpson, Agent for the Board, Mr. Daniel 
Haley, Inspector of Milk, Mr. George E. Gagnon, Inspector of Plumb- 
ing, and Mr. Arthur Harvey as Inspector of Slaughtering, performed 
their duties in their usual efficient manner. Mr. Harvey served as 
Inspector of Slaughtering until November 1. At that time he tend- 
ered his resignation! because of ill health. The Board regretfully 
accepted it and named in hlR place, Mr. Patrick Haley. Mr. Haley 
comes to this Department with full knowledge and requirements of the 
position to which he has been named. He was engaged for many years 

52 



REPORT OF BOARD OF HEALTH 



In the retail meat business, and before assuming his new duties he 
successfully passed all examinations as required by the State De- 
partment of Public Health. 

The Board learned with regret of the death of Mr. Frederick Merrill 
during the past yeer. Mr. Merrill was for many years engaged In the 
business of slaughtering. A mutual pact of friendship existed be- 
tween him and this Department. He always cooperated with this Board 
and complied faithfully with all rules and regulations as set down 
by the State Department and this Board. We feel that the town has 
lost a most useful citizen and our deepest sympathy is extended to 
his wife and family. 

In the matter of living within the appropriation of our budget, we 
have done Just that. No additional money was asked for. Several 
amounts have been turned back into the treasury. The usual receipts 
for licenses and fees have been collected as well as State subsidy 
for patients interned in the Middlesex County Sanatorium at Waltham, 
We have been most fortunate in having not more than three patients 
hospitalized for T.B. treatment. 

Miss Simpson has worked diligently in keeping close check 01 all per- 
sons who have at one time or another been affected with tuberculosis. 
She has journeyed many times during the year with these people to 
Waltham for examination and general physical check-up. The State 
Department of Public Health Is making wonderful progress toward eli- 
mination of this disease, and It can only be done by the cooperation 
of Boards of Health; who in turn keep close watch on any person that 
has had a history of this ailment. Therefore, whenever your Board 
of Health asks you to present ycu rself for an examination, kindly 
cooperate with us. We are willing to do our part. You should be 
willing to do your share. 

At this time we would like to call the attention of the parents of 
school children in the matter of cooperating with the physicians and 
school nurse. If a child Is sent home by a doctor or nurse for some 
particular reason, we respectfully ask those parents to carry out the 
orders as laid down by the doctor or nurse. Of late certain people 
have been disregarding instructions as to the health of their child- 
ren and offering nothing but arguments in return. The health of the 
school children in this town has been placed in capable professional 
hands, and they have every right to expect parents to work with them 
and in close harmony to maintain the health of all the children. 

The disposition of garbage and rubbish is still a major problem in 
this Department. We have discussed plans for relieving the situa- 
tion, and we have come to the conclusion that in the near future this 
town should purchase a truck and employ a few men for this purpose. 
We Intend to propose this measure shortly for your consideration. In 
the meantime we ask you to bear with us, and wherever possible to use 
the town dumps for the disposing of rubbish and whatever means you 
may employ for the elimination of garbage. 

For the year 19*44 we are asking for a sum totaling $7000.00 in our 
budget. We are seeking an increase of $200.00 In the salary of the 
S c hool Nurse. This would bring her salary up to $2000.00 per year- 
a figure that was reached several years ago, and in force for some 
time, before salary cuts, etc. went into effect. In our opinion this 
amount is not one penny too much. Her duties are many and varied 
and seem to be increasing as time passes. All other amounts remain 

53 



REPORT OF BOARD OF HEALTH . 



with the exception of "Aid". We have lowered that amount from 
$1700.00 to $1500.00. 

Our meetings are open to all citizens of the town and a cordial in- 
vitation is extended. We invite your criticism and suggestions. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry L. Shedd Chairman 
Raymond H.Greenwood Secretary 
Edmund J. Welch

REPORT OF FOREST WARDEN 



To the Honorable Board of S e lectraen 
and Citizens of Chelmsford: 

Greetings: 

Although the fire season this year did not start until March 
22, a large number of fires in grass and woodlands have occurred 
(lf6 to date with some reports outstanding), making a close ap- 
proach to the peak year of 1939 when about 200 fires were extin- 
guished. 

As usual the spring months accounted for the larger propor- 
tion, owing to the extremely dry and windy conditions; another dry 
and windy period was experienced from July 1-20 when a number of 
bad fires were started, but the most unusual condition of the year 
is at the present writing. 

A number of fires have started this month of December( 3S calls 
to date) and dangerous fire hazards still exist. As many as four 
fires have been extinguished on some of these calls. 

Attention is called to the extreme hazard in the coming spring 
months, owing to several unusual factors, such as the abnormal 
growth of last season and many acres of uncut hay, which will pro- 
vide highly inflamable fuel at that time. 

The lack of firemen Is another factor to reckon with. The 
Forest Department is without any help most of the time, and the 
regular company's department has lost many trained firemen to the 
Draft and defense work. Therefore, it is very important to use 
great care when starting any fire anywhere outside and never to do 
so when there Is any wind. 

Anyone starting a fire, whether with or without a permit, 
whether In an incinerator, fireplace, or other device, is entirely 
responsible both for the cost of extinguishing such fire, if all- 
owed to get beyond control, and any and all damage resulting there- 
from. 

All fires in the open are banned by State law during the 
months of April and May. No permits may be Issued and no fire can 
be legally kindled in this period. 

Excellent cooperation and assistance has been rendered by both 
the Police and Fire companies of different districts of the Town 
this year. 

The Police radio has been especially useful in relaying in- 
formation at the scene of several fires. 

Considerable delay in obtaining delivery of the new Centri- 
fugal pump, hose and other equipment, authorized at the last an- 
nual Town Meeting, was due partly to having to wait for priority 
ratings from Washington, and waiting our turn at the factory. How- 
ever, the pump was finally received late in July, installed and put 
into service by September 1. In operation this pump exceeds any 
claims made as to its efficiency and is an excellent addition to the 
forest fire equipment* also this makes a valuable addition to the 
Town F^re Department, as it will now be available for emergency ap- 
paratus at any fire. H. M. Sturtevant

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF FIRE ENGINEERS 



TO THE HONORABLE BOARD OF SELECTMEN: 

We have the pleasure of submitting herewith the report of the 
Board of Fire Engineers for the year 19^3* The Board was organized 
as follows: 

John W. Dixon Chief 

Edward Hoyt Ass't Chief and Clerk 

Theodore W. Reed Ass't Chief 

The Board re-appolnted the following District Chiefs: 

District No. 1 Wllhelra T. Johnson 

District No. 2 Joseph D. Ryan 

District No. "5 Walter Edwards 

District No. 4 Henry G. Qulnn 

District No. 5 Sidney Dupee(Acting Chief) 

The roster of the Department has been depleted this past year 
due to the drafting of the men for the Armed Services, there being 
at the present time eight regular men in the Service, two of whom 
are overseas. The men of the Department and the Board Join in 
wishing these men a safe return. 

The equipment of the Department and the signal system have been 
kept in first class condition despite the extra demands made upon 
them by the test blackouts and air raids, as conducted during the 
past year. There is still a great amount of fire equipment that is 
not available due to restricted manufacture and general war condi- 
tions. The Board is pleased to announce, however, the purchase of a 
portable generator lighting outfit consisting of two 500-watt flood- 
lights, a 250-watt spot light cable, fittings, etc. We believe this 
will fill a much needed want of the Department by supplying suffi- 
cient light at night fires or for any other emergency that may re- 
quire its services. 

We have rendered all assistance possible to the Forest Fire 
Warden, who has been seriously handicapped in the performance of his 
duties by the shortage of available man power. 

The Department has responded to a total of S9 alarms during the 
year which are classified as follows: building fires-31; chimney 
fires-25; brush-12; automoblle-7; oil burners-4; false alarms-4-; 
electric light poles-2; tar kettle-1; out-of-town-1; drowning-l;and 
rescue of dog from well-1. 

The Board has cooperated to Its fullest extent with the commit- 
tee named by the Board of Selectmen at the request of the Massachu- 
setts Emergency Public Works Commission regarding post war planning 
for the Town of Chelmsford. 

We regret having to record the resignation of John M. Kemp, 
Ass't Chief and Clerk for many years. During this time he has served 
the Town faithfully and his well-kept records are a credit to the 
Town and an honor to him. 

We extend to the Police Department our appreciation for their 
assistance in summoning additional men and apparatus when needed by 
means of their two-way radio. Our appreciation is extended to all 
others who have assisted the Department in the performance of its

REPORT OF MILK INSPECTOR 

To the Board of Health: 

The following is the Milk Inspector's report for the year end- 
ing December ~}\, 19^3 : 

There were thirty-four wagon licenses granted to milk dealers, 
thirty-nine licenses to stores and two plants were licensed to pas- 
teurize milk, also ten stores were licensed to sell oleomargarine. 

Samples were collected from dealers and stores and analyzed by 
the Howard Laboratories at Amherst, Mass. 

Due to the scarcity of high protein dairy feed, it has been 
hard for the dairy farmer to keep up the quality of milk, but in no 
case has any milk been found below the required standard. 

All milk dealers' plants and many dairy farms have been in- 
spected and found in good sanitary condition and, in a few cases, 
improvements were recommended and followed. 

The average total solids for milk pasteurized was 12.85$> fats 
3.9^. Raw milk solids totaled 12.6^, fats 3.g6#. 

I would like to thank the members of the Board of Health and 
all dealers in milk and cream for their cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Daniel E. Haley

VARNEY PLAYGROUND COMMISSION 



To: Honorable Board of Selectmen 
and Citizens of Chelmsford 

The Varney Playground commission wishes to thank you for your 
kind cooperation in keeping the grounds In a clean and sanitary 
condition. We wish to extend special thanks to highway superin- 
tendent 0' Sullivan for his generous donation of paving stone which 
we are using to build a retaining wall to prevent wash from further 
destroying the baseball field and to Mr. E. Dixon of the George C. 
Moore mill for his generous donation of ashes for the same project. 

We also wish to state that owing to fire damage to plank fence 
and bleachers we are compelled to prevent use of bleachers In their 
weakened condition until such time as an estimated sum(of two 
hundred dollars) can be appropriated to repair the same. 

We had the misfortune of being struck by nature twice last 
year. Our newly erected steel flag pole, seventy feet in height, 
was struck by lightning and fell to the ground. The pipe frame and 
wire mesh fence, situated on top of the plank guard fence, erected 
to prevent injury to spectators at the ball games, was blown down 
during the month of November. The last two articles mentioned will 
also cost approximately two hundred dollars over general appropri- 
ations on the grounds now. If you desire to have the above damage 
repaired we are asking you to increase our appropriation by four 
hundred dollars) for the coming year. 

Thank you again. We remain 

Respectfully yours, 

The Varney Playground Commission 
Leslie H. Adams 
Arnaud R. Blackadar

REPORT OF PLANNING BOARD 



Board of Selectmen 
Gentlemen : 

The activities of this Board during the past year have con- 
sisted of conferences with Town Officials, work on the Master Plan, 
and consideration of post-war conditions. 

No applications for land sub-divisions have been received dur- 
ing the year as there is very little demand for new developments 
due to war conditions. 

It yearly becomes more and more evident by the large number of 
inquiries that zoning is beneficial, as prospective buyers of homes 
and home sites are particular about the legal use that can be made 
of other lots of land in the vicinity of their contemplated purchase. 

To fully appreciate the results of zoning perhaps we should 
once In a while re-define what we mean by zoning. Zoning is the 
setting aside of districts for the development of various types of 
land use. The power to zone is based upon the power of government 
to control the actions of its citizens in the interest of health, 
morals and general welfare of the greatest number. Its express pur- 
poses are to stabilize and protect property value, to insure healthy 
living conditions for all citizens and to promote orderly, economi- 
cally and socially sound development. 

Presumably zoning restricts each parcel of land to the use for 
which it is best fitted and for which it may reasonably and profit- 
ably be developed. 

The Planning Board is pleased to report the return to active 
duty of our chairman, who for several months of the past year has 
been seriously ill. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Howard D. Smith, Chairman 
Arnold C. Perham, Secretary

REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF ANIMALS 



Board of Selectmen 
Gentlemen: 

For the fourth successive year no cattl* have been found af- 
fected with tuberculosis. 

Six dairy cows and one bull were shipped into town from other 
states. All were accompanied by proper permits and test charts and 
were identified and released from quarantine soon after arrival. 
Four cows also came into town from outside the state, under permit, 
for immediate slaughter. 

A census of dairy cattle ordered by the Division of Livestock 
Disease Control, Department of Agriculture showed that there were 
635 dairy cows, 22>5 young cattle and bulls, which is 70 less than 
the total two years ago and is 100 head less than the average total 
for the past fourteen years. 

Fifteen herds have been reported to the above Department as not 
being under supervision for the eradication of tuberculosis; they 
were mostly owned by persons who had recently become owners of one 
or more cows. 

Thirty-five dog bite cases were investigated and twenty-six 
dogs were quarantined for the required period of observation and 
later released as no cases of rabies developed. No rabid dogs were 
found in town during the entire year. 

There has been no change in the State and Federal program of 
Bangs disease eradication. 

No cases of hog cholera were reported. 

I respectfully submit this, my twenty-ninth annual report.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT 

To the S c hool Commit tee ;- 

My sixteenth annual report is hereby submitted to you and to 
the citizens of Chelmsford. Compared with reports of previous years 
it is somewhat curtailed in form. The statistics are those which 
we believe should become a part of the Town's permanent printed 
records. Attention Is called to information given and recommenda- 
tions made in the reports of 19*+ 1 and 19^2, 60 far as recommended 
changes and Improvements have not been made. 

Teachers 

At this time we record the bare facts regarding two valued and 
beloved teachers who have given their lives in the present war, and 
leave to some future date the establishment of suitable memorials. 

George Rollins Knightly came to Chelmsford High School in 
September 1930 aB a teacher-coach. He had been active in athletics 
in Johnson High School, N c rth Andover, and in Aurora College, from 
which he graduated in 193°« He taught history and related subjects. 
At first he was coach of all three major sports, but after 1939 
of baseball alone. He turned out winning teams, and- much more im- 
portant - he impressed his strong personality on every boy who 
worked under him. He volunteered in the Navy in the spring of 19*4-2, 
was commissioned an ensign, and was assigned to active duty as an 
Armed Guard on September 10, 194-2. On February 20, 19^3 the Navy 
reported him missing in action, and later stated that the ship on 
which he served was sunk January g, 19^-3 * n the Atlantic area, 

Donald Herbert Fogg began work in Chelmsford High School in 
19^0, teaching English, having charge of debating, and acting as 
class adviser. He had had military training in the University of 
Maine, from which he received degrees in 1931 an d 193^; w &s an of- 
ficer In the R.O.T.C. and had commanded a CCC camp for two years. 
At the beginning of the War the Army called him into active service 
with rank of First Lieutenant. He was promoted to Captain in May, 
19^2, and went to N rth Africa in command of Co. L, lgth Infantry, 
First Division. On April 5, 19^3 ne was awarded the Silver Star for 



73 



gallantry In action at El Guettar. He was killed In 
action April 23,1943, and posthumously was awarded the 
Purple Heart. 

In the High School Blanche E. Robinson resigned 
to take up work with International Red Cross, Barbara 
Grant Clough resigned, and Earl J. Watt was given leave of 
absence when he volunteered and began his training for 
the Navy. In the McF R rlin School Mabelle Birtwell was 
given leave of absence when she joined the women's branch 
of the Marines. In August V. John Rikkola of the West- 
lands School was elected to a position at S a lem Teachers 
College, for which he had qualified in a competitive 
examination, and resigned early in September. In Novem- 
ber M. Weldon Haire, on leave of absence for military 
duty, resigned in order to take a position in Connecticut, 
and also Lena Genetti Haire. For the history position 
in the High School, David Hamblen, a graduate of Boston 
University with both teaching and business experience, 
was engaged, but he resigned in December to return to 
his former business. John J. Shannon, a graduate of 
Cla^k University with both A.B. a nd A.M. degrees and a 
teacher of two years experience, has been engaged for 
the history position. The list of teachers published at 
the beginning of this report shows how the other positions 
have been filled. One position in the High School was 
abolished, owing to the srmaller enrollment. 

In September M. Marion Adams asked for a few weeks 
leave because of ill health, but she has been unable to 
resume her work as supervisor of music. Bernard P. 
Larkin has taken over the work in the High School, both 
vocal and instrumental, as a substitute. 

Salaries. 

The 1941 report discussed teachers' salaries. Towns 
and cities generally were granting increases at that time, 
and Chelmsford voted an increase of $200 for each teacher 
to date from January 1, 1942. This was about the 
usual increase given in towns of our size and wealth. 
Some of these towns have given a second increase, due to the 

still growing cost of living, and in practically all 
others the teachers are making requests for action. The 
matter is complicated by an act of the last Legislature, 
which established the minimum salary of teachers in elem«n- 
tary schools at $1200, which is $100 more than we have been 
Paying beginners. This upset the balance of salary 
schedules. Teachers take the position, reasonably, that 
the Legislature in fixing the minimum salary of the lowest 
Paid group expected towns to make adjustments all 
along the line. 

Our teachers have made an exhaustive study of the 
salaries paid in Chelmsford for the last ten or fifteen years, 
and of salary schedules in other towns, and have indicater 1 
wliat they regard as inequities in our present scale. 
They ask for immediate increases of varying amounts for 



7* 



those teachers who have not reached the maximum and for an In- 
crease in the maximum for all groups, the full adjustment to be 
effected not later than September 1945. We are confining our 
recommendations to the current year. Economic conditions in 1945 
and later will determine what should be done then. 

We are Indebted to Fred E. Pitkin, Superintendent of Schools 
in North Andover, for a recent study of the maximum salaries paid 
in 44 towns which have populations from 5000 to 12,000. The 
towns named, and the report shows the Median maximum; that is, 
half the towns pay more, half pay less. Chelmsford Is on the low 
side for all groups, elementary, high school women, high school 
men, etc. An Increase of $100 in the maximum for each group would 
in most cases bring our salaries to the median as It stands in 
January, 1944. When our salaries were raised $200 in 1942 we re- 
mained in about the same relative position with other towns since 
they also were granting increases. No increases were given in 
Chelmsford in 1943 » although prices were rising and the cost of 
living consequently increasing. Our budget as proposed to the 
Finance Committee and recommended to the Town provides for an 
increase dating from January 1, 1944, for all teachers, of $100, 
excepting for teachers without experience who began last Septem- 
ber at the new state minimum; and for the ususual step-rate in- 
crease in September of $100 for teachers who have not reached 
the maximum. 

The Janitors also ask for consideration, and In our pro- 
posed budget we have made provision for an increase of 10# It 
would be impossible to replace these men at the salaries now paid. 

Long Range Planning 

Many towns find themselves at a disadvantage when im- 
provements on public property are necessary or desirable, be- 
cause earlier building did not make adequate provision for the 
future needs. School buildings should always be designed so 
that additions can be readily made when need arises, and they 
should be solidly constructed since they are to be subjected to 
hard usage for many years. The site should be chosen with care, 
with a view to providing adequate playground and to avoiding so 
far as possible heavily traveled streets. In Chelmsford atten- 
tion should be given to the problem of sewage disposal. See 
last year's report, page 124, relating to the sewage problem 
at the McFarlln School. The appointing of a Post-War Projects 
Planning Committee on the suggestion of the Governor, which has 
taken over the work cf the Town Planning Committee, makes this a 
fitting time to list Improvements on our school plant which are 
clearly in order. Not all of these are urged for action at the 
present time- some may wait ten or twenty years-but all may well 
be under present consideration. 



75 



1. The providing of a complete athletic field back 
of the High School, to include grading and fencing of all 
the grounds. The long range view requires enlarging the 
present field. 

2. Providing playgrounds at the two schools which do 
not have them, Quessy a nd South Chelmsford. It would 

be necessary to acquire land at both schools as the field 
immediately back of the Quessy School is not owned by the 
Town. 

3. Enlarging the so-called New Building at Prince- 
ton St., which was built in 1899, so that the use of the 
Old Building, the front half of which antedates the Civil 
War, can be terminated; or, preferably, provide a new 
building adjacent to, or near,Varney Playground large 
enough to accomodate all the pupils in the North Chelmsford 
area. In either case provide a hall designed for playing 
basketball, with a large seating capacity, and having the 
necessary shower and dressing rooms. Such a building 
might well provide rooms for other community purposes. 

4. Providing a new building, with community hall, 
at East Chelmsford. In recent years the present 
building has been badly over-crowded, but just now grades 
are s*mall. When more classrooms are needed, an entirely 
new building located on the farther side of the playground 
would be a wiser solution than an attempt to enlarge the 
old building. 

5. Pacing the remaining wooden buildings with brick, 
both to make them warmer and to obviate the recurrent cost 
of painting. 



Repairs and Improvements. 

No painting of buildings has been done for several 
years. When conditions return to normal as regards 
material and labor all the buildings except the High School 
and the Westlands will. need attnetion. We are asking 
for an additional $2000 for repairs with this in mind. 

At the McP 8 rlin School the cesspools were cleaned 
at a cost of $70. The boys 1 toilet in the basement is a 
source of constant trouble. It will be necessary to 
overhaul this completely in order to avoid almost monthly 
bills for service and repairs. This Is on our list for 
attention next summer, or before. 

At East Chelmsford a part of the roofing was re- 
placed at a cost of $196, patching plastering in classrooms 
and hall cost $88, and covering the poor plaster In the 
girls' toilet, all about to fall, with celotex cost $95. 

Lightning struck the chimney of the Highland Ave. 
School the afternoon of Aug. 3d. Leander Marlon, builder 
of the additions at the High School fl nd the Westlands, 



76 



was called upon to protect the building against further 
damage. He and the insurance adjuster fixed the cost of 
repairs at $1590. Mr, Marion finished this work, chimney, 
slate, plaster, wood-work, etc., just as school opened in 
September. The sheet metal ventilator on the roof, 
which was not damaged by the lightning, was painted and 
repaired while the staging was up, and the foundation walls 
pointed up, at an additional cost of $199. 

At South Chelmsford, instead of replacing bulkhead 
doors in the rear, a covered entrance was built at a cost 
of $70. 

In the extremely cold weather of last winter we had 
bad freeze-ups in places where such trouble had never been 
experienced before, just as many house-holders had. In 
three buildings, Princeton St., Highland Ave., a nd Quessy, 
the janitors were provided with insulating board with which 
they covered basement windows for the winter. At Quessy 
where the hall in the rear is difficult to heat, tha hall 
windows a nd doors have been weatherstripped at a cost of 
$159. At the Westlands the ceiling of the addition and 
the north-west corner of the building were insulated at 
a cost of $435. The resultant saving in fuel will pay for 

all these improvements within a few years, to say nothing 
of the saving in plumbing bills. Only the unceasing 
vigilance of the janitor in cold weather saves the toilet 
room plumbing in the Old Building at Princeton St. Water 
has to be drawn out of all piping and fixtures if the 
temperature is down to 15 above zero. We got figures for 
insulating, but decided that a less expensive way might be 
devised if the building is to be continued in use for 
many years. 

In cold weather, especially v/hen there is high wind, 
the janitors have been staying in the High School at night. 
Without doubt they have saved repair bills by so doing. 
I repeat an earlier recommendation, that the Town employ a 
night man for the two schools at the Center, who would serve 
as a watchman for property valued at over $400,000 and 
who would maintain fires at night when needed. There is 
work enough in the two schools and on the grounds for an ad - 
ditional man the year around. 

Enrollment 

There was a drop in the October 1st enrollment of 
145. The smaller attendance is especially noticeable in 
grades I a nd II and in the last three years of the High 
School, 42 in the primary grades and 66 In the High School. 
The first Is explained by reference to the birth records 
of six and seven years ago. For the twenty years ending in 
1941 the average number of births recorded in" Chelmsford 
was 113. In 1936 it was 85 and in 1937 the number dropped 
to 77. In 1942 the number was 149, and in 1943 it was 145. 
In the High School the drop is a normal one, explained by the 
number who have left school either to enter the armed 



77 



services or to take jobs on reaching the age of sixteen. 
For the entire state the loss in high school enrollment 
from October 1942 was nearly 15^. Ours was just over 16^. 

The table below shows enrollment by grades and by 

buildings on October 1, 1943. A comparison with the 

similar tables in earlier reports will show where the 
school population is falling.

The number of pupils transported dropped from 628 on 
October 1, 1942 to 538 last October: 162 to McFarlin, 67 
to Princeton St., 58 to Quessy, 32 to South, and 219 
to the High School, 

School transportation sv^fered in another way. The 
rules of O.D.T. absolutely forbade the use of school busses 
to carry pupils except to attend school. Mr. M^rinel could 
not earry athletic teams without forfeiting his right 
to buy gas and tires. We a re indebted to parents organized 
by the Civic Committee for carrying teams to football and 
basketball games in their own cars. Such help will be needed 
as long as present restrictions prevail, and we express 
our thanks for the assistance given. 

It will be impossible to restore our system of hsr^ling 
athletics under teacher-coaches until after the War. :'.-. 
A. J. Lupien was engaged last fall for football coach, Ivir. 
Schulte is handling basketball, and will coach baseball. 
The program in all sports is necessarily curtailed. The 
trend in such towns as Chelmsford, not located on a railroad 
or having good bus service to a number of other towns, 
is to give up inter-school contests and substitute Intra- 
mural. The latter program makes it possible for many more 
students to participate.

School Courses 

Your committee report of last year mentioned the course 
in English as needing attention. New textbooks are now In 
use in the 7th and 8th grades, the lower books of the series 
used in the High School. For twenty or thirty years emphasis 
on English teaching In the elementary schools has been on 
"language", correct usage as a habit of speech, rather than as 
observance of rules. Teacher training institutions led this 
movement away from grammar, and also away from the use of phonics 
in teaching beginners to read, until a whole generation of young 
teachers came into the schools with little knowledge of either. 
The pendulum is now swinging the other way. The new books con- 
tain real grammar, and the new reading methods do not lgnor 
phonics. Teachers generally aporove the new trend, Just as for- 
mer teachers and many parents, brought up on the older methods, 
will applaud the change. It still remains true, in English as 
In all subjects, that the teacher herself is far more important 
than either textbook or method. 



79 



The Impact of the War on school life is seen in more ways 
than in lessened attendance. To quote from last year's 
report: " These trying times have inspired some students to 
more earnest effort; others have seemed content to drift while 
awaiting their country's call". Doubtless there is a feeling 
on the part of some that our courses are not fitted to these 
stirring days, and certainly courses will be modified in the 
future to meet new needs. But what will those needs be? 
No one is wise enough, to give a complete answer now. 

One thing however is certain. True education consists 
not in information gleaned from books and lessons and 
filed away on shelves in one's mind, but rather in the mental 
and personality traits developed in the individual through 
the learning process. Determination to do the task assigned, 
whether it is pleasing or distasteful; pride in its comple- 
tion; readiness to undertake uninteresting and even un- 
meaning work; joy in doing one's best regardless of the 
rewards received - these are some of the characteristics of 
real a nd effective education. In these days when the cream 
of America's youth is giving all in poorly paid, but glorious 
service on the World's battle fronts, it is a cause of 
regret that slackers are still found in classrooms. 

In behalf of teachers and pupils appreciation is express- 
ed to all who have been of assistance in the work of the 
schools, and especially to you, the members of the 
School Committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 

George S. Wright, Superintendent.

Mr. George S. Wright 
Superintendent of Schools 
Chelmsford, Massachusetts 

My dear Mr. Wright: 

I am pleased to submit, herewith, my fourteenth annual re- 
port as principal of Chelmsford High School.

The enrollment reached a peak of 532 on January 1, 1941. 
Since that time the enrollment has decreased each year. The 
enrollment as of January 1, 1944 is over 31 per cent less than 
it was on January 1, 1941. The boys' enrollment has dropped 
over 39 per cent since January 1, 1941, while the enrollment of 
the girls has dropped over 22 per cent. 

It is increasingly difficult to keep students, especially 
boys^in school during war, and periods of high wages. This was 
a fact during the first World War. We feel that after this war 
is over the boys and girls who left school because of the high 
wages will realize the serious mistakes they made. There has 
never been a time when the need of a good education has been as 
great as it is today. This need will be still greater when this 
war is over. Children always suffer more during war times than 
adults. Therefore, every effort should be made by every one to 
see that the education of our youth suffers as little as possible.

REPORT OF POST-WAR PUBLIC WORKS COID.HTTEE. 



To the Honorable Eoard of Selectmen, and 
To the Citizens of the Town of Chelmsford: 

At the request of the Massachusetts Emergency Public Works Commission, 
appointed by Governor Saltonstall,to prepare and maintain current progress 
information on the design of post-war projects by municipalities of the 
Commonwealth, the Board of Selectmen has appointed a local Committee to outline 
a program of worthwhile public works in this Community, 

The objeotive of the Committee is to have complete plans and specifications 
ready to advertise for bids, for a substantial program of public works, to bridge 
the gap between the close of the war and the time needed for private industry 
to re-tool for peace-time production, a period of time estimated to be about one 
year. 

This committee is one of 2i+3 committees throughout the State working towards 
the one objective — -to provide useful work for those released from the armed 
forces and from War Industry, 

A program of useful public works that may be constructed immediately after 
the war should be planned now to insure against the development of a critical 
unemployment situation, This is especially true since these works not only pro- 
vide employment but are actually needed for the daily use of everyone. Unless 
preparation for such a program of useful construction is made now, there may arise 
in the post-war period a demand for a made work program primarily social in its 
objectives, Such a program would not add materially to the wealth of the Town and 
large sums of money would be expended on these projects with little of perm- 
anent value to show for our efforts, 

A post-war public works program of this character has double virtue; (1) The 
projects are needed now, are useful in themselves and will add to the local wealth; 
(2) they afford a practicable means of generating useful jobs at the proper time. 
It is not enough to catalogue or list these projects with approximate estimates 
of their costs and indications of how they may be financed. The real need is that 
means be provided for complete preparation NOW of actual plans and specifications 
and other preliminary work such as selection of sites for improvements to the end 
that, with the return of peace, construction contracts may be awarded and the work 
promptly started. 

Since October 191+3 » your Committee has been meeting weekly with department 
heads and from the list of projects submitted, it soon became apparent that in- 
stead of a one year program a five to ten year program was being developed, This 
condition was true throughout the Commonwealth according to State officials, Any 
department head worthy of the name should have a long range program.However since 
the Post-War Committee was concerned principally with the year following the close 
of the war, it was suggested that only the most worthwhile of the long range pro- 
grams be brought to the top for consideration, The balance of the projects submitted 
could be taken from the long range program by the voters at some future time or 
as the immediate need became apparent. 

The following is a list of the projects submitted to the Pos.t*War Public Works 
Committee and tabulated in the order of their importance to the community by 
Department heads .The projects were outlined of course in a more detailed report 
to the Committee but are condensed herewith for publication!

RECOMMENDATIONS 



KI3-EWAY DEPARTMENT ; 

The Post War Committee was unanimous in placing the recommend- 
ations of the Highway Department at the head of the list and recommends that the 
sum of #3l4.,i+30.O0 be raised and appropriated in this years tar levy to be used 
as needed in the amounts and for the purposes and locations specfified by the 
Superintendent of Streets in his program submitted to the Committee. Much of this 
work would be done in the ordinary course of events .The chief advantage of its 

inclusion in this program is it is planned work.The streets and locations have 

been selected ana the projects can be started overnight, if necessary, with no 
confusi on, waste or lost motion. 

The Committee is informed that the State and County are sett- 
ing aside funds to assist cities and towns on highways where such funds may be 
expended legally and to this extent any appropriations made by the town for these 
highways will be increased. 

FIRS DEPARTMENT ; 

It is recommended that a sum sufficient to draw plans and spec- 
ifications for two fire houses be appropriated to be located in the Centre and 
the North. It is also suggested that the matter of sites for these buildings be 
given further study. 

Other projects submitted by this department as worthwhile for 
Post War long range program but no appropriation recommended for this year. 

SCHOOL DEPARTMENT ; 

It is recommended that the top project submitted by the School 
Department namely;"An athletic field at the High School"be approved, and a sum 
sufficient to make a boundary survey and topographical map of the property and 
proposed additions be appropriated. The above appropriation should be large enough 
to include plans and specifications to complete the work. 

Other projects submitted by the School Department recommended 
as worthwhile for Post War long range program but no appropriation recommended 
for this year. 

BOARD OF HE ALTH; 

Other Communities have plaoed public health programs such as 
submitted by this Board at the top of the list. signed petitions were presented 
a few years ago to clean up some of these danger spots. However it is not recomm- 
ended that an appropriation be made this year in view of the expenditure contem- 
plated in other departments. This program would provide considerable work, if, later 
on, the town was in need of more worth while projects. 

CEMETERY DEPARTM ENT : 

'" It is recommended that the sum of §1,500.00 be appropriated 

this year for improvements listed by the Commissioners as being needed at the 
Pine Ridge Cemetery. 

Other projects submitted by the Cemetery Department recommended 
as worthwhile for post-war long range program but no appropriation recommended 
this year. 

PARK DEP A RTMEN T i 

Sidewalks requested around parks in the Centre and North referred 
to the Highway Department, otherwise no detailed program submitted by the Board. 
This Committee suggests that edgestone be placed around both parks and grass walks 
be substituted for the present. 

The project listed as a playground by the School Department, if 
constructed, is probably as much as the town could afford as a Post-War project. 

ASSESSORS DEPARTMENT ! 

Inasmuch as the project submitted by this department would 
employ only engineers, it was the opinion of the Committee that there will be a 



great demand for the services of engineers in the immediate post-war period, 
therefor it is recommended this project be deferred and made part of the long 
range program. 

PLAHNINO BOARD : 

The Planning Board made several valuable suggestions that wese 
acted upon favorably by the Committee. These suggestions however were projects 
that would properly come under other departments. 

If all of the recommendations of this Committee are approved by the 
voters ?55ty30»00 will be raised and appropriated by tax levy,plus approximately 
$2, 000. 00 more for plans and specifications making a grand total of $37»y80.00. 

At the writing of this report, figures are not available from the Town 
Accountant's office, therefor it is impossible to determine just what effect the 
raising of this money will have on the tax rate, however it is our opinion that 
with the free cash on hand together with a certain grant from the Commonwealth 
that the tax rate will not be materially changed from last year. 

If after plans and specifications are completed it is decided to build 
the fire houses and playground at the High School the sum of approximately 
tfAj.6,000.00 more would be needed or a grand total of #83, 930. 00. To finance these 
projects it would of course be possible to borrow money and repay the same over 
a period of ten years or more, and to use available money on hand, such as the 
fund created from the sale of real estate which contains approximately $7, 000.00. 

Compared with reports submitted to the State Commission by other towns, 
this amount is small. However, it is all the Comnitteef elt it could recommend at 
this time regardless of what is being done in other communities. If the program 
submitted shoula prove inadequate, projects can be taken from those listed by 
department heads at anytime and moved to the top if the voters desire. In the 
final analysis the voters decide what projects will be acceptable and how much 
money shall be appropriated. 

The projects selected by the Post War Committee in general,was the top 
project submitted by the Department heads as being the most important to the 
Town, but also of paramount consideration was the type of labor and the number 
of man-hours that the project would employ.To balance the program with skilled 
labor it was the opinion of the committee that the construction program sub- 
mitted by the Fire department should take precedence over that submitted by the 
School Department at this time in the interest of public safety.lt was the con- 
sensus of opinion that under the present system we have been very fortunate 
and that one disastrous fire would bring us to a full realization of that fact. 

The Committee does not know to what extent the Federal Government mil 
co-operate in post-war public works but it is their considered opinion that 
help will be extended in the year immediately following the war, to those cities 
and towns which have a program sufficiently advanced to start as soon as the 
war ends.There is doubt, because of the cost of the war, that Federal participation 
will extend beyond this period. Under the best conditions a drastic curtailment 
is expected. 

In conclusion, the Comnittee would like to take this opportunity to thank 
the various Department Heads for the constructive andworthwhile programs submitted. 
kt all times they have co-operated with this Committee to the fullest extent.
