THE MAYOR'S ADDRESS 



Gentlemen of the City Councils: 

One year of our administration of the city's affairs has passed, 
and we are about to begin the second and final year of our steward- 
ship. I believe it is well and proper that we review briefly our work 
of the past year with the idea of profiting by any mistakes we may 
have made to the end that we who have been chosen to administer 
the affairs of our community may become more zealous and more 
proficient in the performance of our duties. 

FINANCE 

I am pleased to report that the city's financial condition is ex- 
cellent, as was demonstrated by the ready market at a good pre- 
mium for the bonds recently sold on the market. 

HIGHWAYS 

While there has been but little new construction of roads within 
the city, this department has been able to employ a considerable 
force with C. W. A. funds and with funds furnished by the State 
for Class V Roads. I strongly urge that these gravel roads be 
treated with oil this year as a matter of economy and to insure their 
permanency. I believe our city streets are as good or better than 
any other city in the state. 

FIRE DEPARTMENT 
The fire department has had a busy year, and the new pumper 
purchased for the department has proved its value many times. My 
only suggestion is that the committee endeavor to create some plan 
for more frequent inspection of mercantile buildings, especially the 
basements and cellars of these buildings. 

PARKS 

Much has been done on park improvements the past year. I 
congratulate the park commissioner on the success of his efforts. 

POLICE 

A number of improvements have been made in connection with 
this department. All banks, Avith the exception of one, and the 
telephone office have direct telephone connections with the police 
station, and a police box has been installed from which the officers 
on beat make a report to the station every thirty minutes. Machine 
gun, gas gun, and gas clubs have been added to the equipment. The 
new police car is very useful both for police work and as an ambu- 
lance. A record system is being installed which should prove valu- 
able for future reference. 

WATER DEPARTMENT 
The outstanding accomplishment of this department was the 
successful extension of the water main around the Five Mile Drive. 



6 CITY OF KEENE 

This project, in my opinion, was well worth while and furnished a 
considerable amount of work for the unemployed, increased the fire 
protection for a large amount of property, and will eventually open 
up some very desirable property for the building of homes. I regret 
that funds were not available to complete the connection of dead 
ends, and hope that the committee may be provided wath the money 
to complete this desirable improvement. 

CEMETERIES 
The Sumner Knight Memorial C'hapel was dedicated in Sep- 
tember and is a beautiful building. The special committee under 
Avhose direction this chapel was built spent a great deal of time and 
effort in bringing to a successful conclusion the location and build- 
ing of the chapel, and are entitled to your sincere commendation. 

HEALTH DEPARTMENT 

So much has been published about what has been done in im- 
proving this department, that 1 will not tire you with details. I 
believe that the results of your action will prove the wisdom of our 
efforts and justify our endeavor to better safeguard the health of 
our people. 

WELFARE 

■Probably the most serious of all the problems that confront us 
in the immediate future is the matter of taking care of the unem- 
ployed and needy. As a Christian people, our duty is plain. That 
none shall suffer from cold or hunger should be our aim. Far better 
that we practice rigid economy in all other departments than that 
we fail in the duty we owe to suffering humanity. The head of this 
department has proven his efficiency. I trust you .will give him 
your help and support. 

CONCLUSION 
Gentlemen: The year 1935 is ahead of us. I take this oppor- 
tunity to express to you, the members of the City Government and 
the heads of each and all of the city departments my most sincere 
thanks for your support and spirit of cooperation for the past year, 
with the hope that my conduct the coming year may be such that I 
may continue to merit the same support that has made my duties 
as mayor a real pleasure during the year 1934. 

GEORGE F. T. TRASK, Mayor.

ANNUAL REPORT 37 

For this all the ten or more nationalities represented in this 
City will bring exhibits of their treasures from their homelands and 
will present a program typical of the lands which they represent. 
The object of this is to foster a kindlier, keener appreciation on our 
part towards these people in our midst, and to give to them the 
opportunity of showing us some of the arts and crafts of the lands 
from which they came. It is a part of our Americanism project. 

It has been decided by both organizations fostering this that 
all proceeds shall be devoted to the purchase of milk and cod liver 
oil for distribution among the school children of the City by the 
School Nurse. 

Considering these two civic aims, Americanism and Child 
Health, we, the Keene Woman's Club and Ashuelot Chapter, 
respectfully petition y^ou graciously and generously to grant us the 
use of City Hall without charge.

Catch Basins, 1,708; Manholes, 99; Grate inlets, 166. 

All hydrants and gates have been inspected and repaired. Old meters 
that have been in service twenty years have been replaced with new ones. 

The sewers have been cleaned and are in good condition. 

The drains are in good working order, a number of catch basins have 
been rebuilt and new ones added. 

I respectfully recommend that a separation of the Sewer Department 
from the Water Department be made, the Sewer Department expenses run by 
special appropriation of the City Council. 

The Sewage Disposal System has been under construction since Septem- 
ber 20th, 1934. 

The pipe lines are now all laid and the Emhoff tanks and disposal field 
completed. 

The Pumping Station structure is well along toward completion and 
with the installing of the pumps and grading about the grounds, should see 
completion of the Project about February 1, 1936. 

PAUL F. BABBIDGE, 

Superintendent.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF HIGHWAYS 



To His Honor the Mayor and Gentlemen of the City Councils: 

The following report of the Highway department for the year ending 
Nov. 30, 1935, is submitted. 

Our work this year has been mostly a matter of maintenance with no 
new construction. 

There is an ever increasing demand for oil treatment on our suburban 
roads. We have met the demand this year so far as we could do so by not 
oiling some of our city streets that were in quite good condition. 

Excavations made necessary in the construction of the Sewage Disposal 
plant left several of our streets in bad condition particularly Winchester 
Court where trenches were so deep that the street was torn to pieces. All of 
these streets have been repaired. By agreement with the contractor we were 
allowed two hundred dollars toward the expense of repairing Winchester 
Court. This street has been graveled and treated with oil, both walks have 
been covered with stone dust and the street is in better condition than ever 
before. 

An appropriation of $5,000 was made to repair West street bridge and to 
help towards expense of painting other bridges. We added two new lines of 
stringers, replaced several old stringers with new ones and completely re- 
planked with treated lumber. This bridge was built 35 years ago and was 
designed to carry the traffic of the times. With these repairs it is now in 
condition to carry loads permitted by our State laws. 

We have previously called attention to the bridges over the Branch, and 
again urge a careful consideration of their condition. With the improvement 
of the Branch road traffic is becoming such that heavier construction is neces- 
sary. 

We are reducing each year our cost of bridge maintenance by erecting 
permanent structures. 

The bridge over the Branch in Main street was replaced this year by the 
State. 

All bridges railings and buildings of this department have been painted 
as a W. P. A. Project. The Federal appropriation for labor being $1,123, and 
the City furnished supervision and material to the extent of $1,400. 

Removal of car tracks in West street. Main street and Central Square was 
also undertaken as a W. P. A. Project. It also included the repaving. The 
Federal appropriation for labor was $1,760 and the City furnished supervision, 
labor, trucks and material to the value of $4,600. 

The City funds thus used were taken out of our regular Highway fund. 

Attention is here called to a recent petition presented to the Councils 
asking for a reconstruction of Woodbury street. 

The usual amount of rubbish has been disposed of at the incinerator, and 
the customary spring and fall rubbish collections were made. 

In addition to the appropriation made for moving barn in the City pas- 
ture, this department spent about $500 in repairing and grading around the 
building. 

For some time tools, equipment and materials have disappeared from the 
buildings and property In the City pasture. We strongly urge that a suitable 
fence be erected to guard against further loss. 

We have spent this year $2,596 in fertilizing, trimming and removing trees.

114 CITY OF KEENE 



REPORT OF PARK COMMISSIONER 



To the Honorable Mayor and City Councils: 

This department is pleased to report that, during the past year, in addi- 
tion to the regular care and upkeep of the various park areas, a considerable 
amount of development has been done with the co-operation of E. R. A. and 
W. P. A. projects, in Robin Hood Park and the Drummer Woods. Through 
State and Federal aid the employment of 20 to 25 men who were on city or 
county relief has been possible for a period of eight months resulting not only 
in much progress in the development of these areas but in a saving to the 
city and county of over $10,000 in poor relief. 

At Robin Hood Park, the clogging of the drainage pipe and the appear- 
ance of several springs during the early spring caused serious damage to the 
new recreation field, necessitating several cross drains and the installation of 
a new main pipe of twice the former capacity. With the completion of these 
changes, the installation of swings, teeters, and sand boxes as well as seats 
and tables in the adjoining grove, this area has seen such a large and con- 
stant use that its development already seems well justified. The old octagon 
reservoir has been cleaned out, graded and seeded as an outdoor amphitheatre 
with terraced approaches, and the latter planted with perennial plants and 
shrubs. It is hoped that the amphitheatre may be used for plays and pageants 
but the transformation is at least a visual improvement. The season at the 
swimming pool was the largest and most successful in its history and three 
life guards, instead of the former two, were necessitated by the crowds. 

Increased use of Robin Hood Park by our own people and expressions 
from out of town visitors convinces the department that the city is fortunate 
In having this large and fine recreation area so near the city and during the 
coming year work is planned to make more available some of the still unde- 
veloped portions of the property. 

At the Drummer Woods, some forty acres near the old Gilsum Road were 
cleared of dead wood and undesirable growth to give the pine a chance to 
grow, and it is planned to continue this trimming during the coming winter 
with W. P. A. labor. On the brook near the center of the lot a twelve foot 
dam is nearing completion to create a small pond, not only for fire protection, 
but also, as it is surrounded by pine groves, for an attractive recreation spot. 
Old roads to this area from both Elm Street and the old Gilsum Roads are 
also being repaired. A long ski trail has been made down the hill and it is 
planned to develop other trails along old wood roads throughout the 130 
acres. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ROBERT T. KINGSBURY, 

Park Commissioner.

REPORT OF CITY PHYSICIAN 

December 16, 1935. 
To His Honor, The Mayor, and the City Councils: 

During the past year there has been much less illness among patients on 
city relief rolls and correspondingly less expenditure for City Physician fees. 
To the best of my memory, no city patients were hospitalized for obstetric 
care. All calls received have been attended to as promptly as possible. 

I wish at this time to express appreciation for the cooperation of the Dis- 
trict Nurses; and of the Overseer of the Poor in authorizing measures for 
diagnosis and treatment, which I considered necessary.

116 CITY OF KEENE 



REPORT OF HEALTH OFFICER 



To the Members of the Board of Health, Keene, N. H. 

I hereby submit a report of my work for the year ending December 1st, 
1935. 

I am very grateful to His Honor the Mayor and to the members of the 
city government for the support they have given me during the past year and 
particularly to the Land and Buildings Committee for their work in obtaining 
a place for a laboratory and health office and helping to equip it. Through 
their efforts the City of Keene has a municipal milk inspection laboratory 
and health office that compares very favorably with any in the State. Credit is 
also due Dr. A. A. Fratte; who died this year during his term as a member 
of the Board of Health; and the present members of the board for their 
efforts in the same matter. 

I wish to thank the members of the Board of Health for their co-opera- 
tion and assistance to me in getting a good start this first year. You were 
never too busy to stop and give me advice or assistance on any matter that 
came up. 

The milk supply of the City of Keene has been greatly improved this 
year. Through the cooperation and assistance of the State Board of Health; 
whose inspectors have helped me whenever requested; we have obtained im- 
proved methods of handling, care of utensils and many improved stables and 
milk rooms. Each producer and dealer has been inspected, some of them 
many times, and wrong methods called to their attention for correction. 
There is yet much to be done but due to the present financial conditions some 
improvements could not be obtained. Milk samples have been collected and 
tested as often as possible and reports and criticism mailed each producer as 
soon as tests were finished. I have had fine cooperation from almost all the 
milk dealers and producers and I wish to take this opportunity to thank them 
for it. 

Barber shops, restaurants, bakeries and all places where milk or food is 
sold or prepared have been inspected, many of them several times, and any- 
thing found unsanitary or illegal has been corrected. 

Many complaints have been investigated and many nuisances abated. 
Keene has been fortunate in not having many cases of contagious disease 
this past year. There have been no cases of diphtheria, typhoid fever or septic 
sore throat reported and only two cases of infantile paralysis. The absence of 
diphtheria is probably due in part to the administration of diphtheria toxoid 
to school children. It is apparent that a great many cases of children's dis- 
eases such as measles, whooping cough, chicken pox and mumps are not 
reported, due probably to the fact that most families do not call a physician 
in these cases. These diseases are reportable and should be reported to the 
Health Officer. There were also five cass of trichinosis, a not very common 
disease in this locality, which is caused from eating insufficiently cooked pork. 
Following is a summary of some of the work done this year. This does 
not show of course the great amount of time spent in attending to corres- 
pondence, personal interviews and preparing laboratory equipment for milk 
work.

REPORT OF CITY ENGINEER AND BUILDING 
INSPECTOR 



Keene, N. H., Dec. 6, 1935. 
To His Honor the Mayor and Board of Aldermen:— 

My report is herewith submitted for the year 1935. 

Engineering work this year has been mostly routine work, and work has 
been done in connection with the following City Departments, Highways, 
Water, Sewer, Drains and Cemeteries, the Park Commissioner, and the Lands 
and Buildings Committe. Lines and grades have been given on many streets 
for City construction work and sidewalk grades have been set for property 
owners when they were constructing houses or other buildings. 

Large maps were prepared for the Cemetery Department, of Woodland, 
Woodland Extension, West Keene, and Greenlawn Cemeteries showing all 
burial lots with the names of the owners. A numerical and alphabetical index 
accompanying these plans. 

Several vacant portions of Woodland Extension Cemetery being laid out 
into new lots and about 100 granite markers furnished and set by the Ceme- 
tery Department to mark the roadways and paths in these subdivisions. Each 
year all new data pertaining to cemeteries should be recorded on these plans 
and indexes, keeping them always up to date. 

Street lines, not marked, should be properly marked at street inter- 
sections and angles by stone boundary posts set in the ground as called for by 
the street records. On other streets where records of the original layouts are 
incomplete, surveys should be made and the street lines established by the 
City Councils for the convenience of property owners. This is also very im- 
portant in carrying out City Zoning laws. 

Stone boundary posts have been set on several streets this year. 

Building Permits to the number of 199 have been issued for construction 
work as follows: 

Single houses, 18 

Double houses, 2 

5 Apartment houses, 1 

Additions and alterations to houses, 80

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF KEENE PUBLIC LIBRARY 



To the Honorable Mayor and City Councils: 

Gentlemen: The past year has seen the library, with the splendid coop- 
eration of its staff, meeting most effectively the countless demands made 
upon it. Its main function continues to be the furnishing of aid and counsel 
as well as books to those who wish to read for pleasm-e or profit. Both 
adult and juvenile borrowers have had a great variety of new books from which 
to choose. The budget has been planned to give especial attention also to 
the needs of the students and teachers of the community, who depend upon 
the library to supply much of their required reading. The reference, maga- 
zine and newspaper rooms have been unusually well patronized. 

Library Hall is used regularly by the Historical Society of Cheshire County, 
and by the Council of the Parent-Teachers' Association and its Study and Pre- 
school groups. The Garden Department of the Keene Woman's Club has met 
there occasionally, and the club room has been used for various committee 
meetings. 

With profound sorrow, the Board of Trustees records the death of one of its 
most valued members, Mary A. A. Prentiss. As secretary of the board for 
thirty-six years, Mrs. Prentiss gave ever wise and untiring service in the 
interest of the library. 

Early in the year, the permanent board elected Mrs. Walter H. Lacey and 
Mr. Winfield M. Chaplin to fill the two vacancies then existing on that board. 

The library statistics and details of the work are covered in the librarian's 
report hereby appended. 

RUTH P. HUNTRESS, Secretary. 



120 CITY OP KEENE 



REPORT OF LIBRARIAN 



To the Trustees of the Keene Public Library: 

The report for the year 1934-1935 is herewith presented. 

REFERENCE DEPARTMENT 

Exact statistics are not kept of the number of people using the reading 
and reference rooms, or of the questions and telephone calls answered, but 
undoubtedly such a record would equal if not excel that of any year. The 
demand for help from books indicates that the public has found the advantage 
of the public library and turns to it in all kinds of problems. This places 
upon us the necessity for an adequate supply of up-to-date material in books, 
pamphlets and magazines. The single text-book no longer suffices with the 
modern methods of teaching and the library must supplement it with many 
and varied soui'ces. 

CIRCULATION 

The records show that the total number of books borrowed is 98,178, from 
which we may judge that business and employment are in better condition 
than two years ago when the library experienced such a large increase both 
in number of borrowers and books circulated. Almost all libraries felt that 
gain and few, very few, have kept up to that peak. Of the volumes loaned, 
fiction is a little more than three fourths of the whole, or 70,900. Literature, 
travel, periodicals, bibography and social sciences stand next in favor. 

OUR BORROWERS 

There have been 865 borrowers registered and re-registered, of whom 408 
were adult, 322 juvenile and 135 re-registrants. The whole number of bor- 
rowers' applications now on file dating from September, 1930 is 9,608. The 
registration period is six years. A new enumeration should begin next Sep- 
tember. 

CHILDREN'S DEPARTMENT 

The circulation of books in this department is about 19% of the total cir- 
culation and six times the number of volumes in the department. 8 story- 
hours were given, the largest attendance being 150, viath an average of 96. 
Book Week which was observed in a variety of interesting ways, as you have 
seen from the accounts in the local paper, brought a very large number of 
young people to the librbary each day of the week and an extra assistant was 
required from three to six o'clock. We feel that the effort expended on making 
this week an attractive one is well worth while from the new interest awak- 
ened, not alone among the youthful patrons, but among parents and teach- 
ers. The circulation this year amounted to 18,316; of this number of books, 
4,609 were non-fiction. 1,998 were loaned from the deposit at the Symonds 
School. 162 volumes were loaned to schools and 202 were circulated by the 
teachers for home use. 

THE BOOK COLLECTION 

The number of books added this year is 1.044, of which 206 were gifts. 
819 volumes were withdrawn, which leaves a net gain of 225 and brings the 
book stock to 30,021, not including several hundred pamphlets. We were fav- 
ored in receiving a special gift of sixteen volumes from the Yale University 
Press, made possible through the generosity of "A graduate of Yale." 

SPECIAL ACTIVITIES 
Classes from the Symonds Junior High School have been continued, book 
notes and articels on library work and conditions sent to the Keene Evening 
Sentinel — we are grateful for the space given us — and certain sections of the 
library have been re-classified to conform to modern library usage. The li- 
brarian and children's librarian have spoken before P. T. Associations and 
visited libraries, the librarian has attended two regional conferences, and an 
assistant has attended one. 



ANNUAL REPORT 121 

The librarian acknowledges helpful suggestions from the Trustees and 
willing co-operation from the assistants. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARY LUCINA SAXTON, 

_ . Librarian.

122 CITY OF KEENE 



REPORT OF CITY SOLICITOR 



To His Honor the Mayor and Members of the Common Councils. 

Your City Solicitor reports activities for the fiscal year ending November 
30, 1935 as follows: 

At the beginning of the year the City of Keene was involved in the fol- 
lowing suits. 

Sprague & Carleton, Inc. vs. City of Keene. 

Kingsbury Manufacturing Company vs. City of Keene. 

Leon C. Norwood vs. City of Keene. 

New England Woodenware Company vs. City of Keene. 

Perley F. Safford vs. City of Keene. 

American Crystal, Inc. vs. City of Keene. 

George Delay vs. City of Keene. 

John Elliot vs. City of Keene. 

Elliot Brothers vs. City of Keene. 

Kingsbury Machine Tool Corporation vs. City of Keene. 

John A. Booras et als vs. City of Keene. 

Perley F. Safford vs. City of Keene. 

John Elliot vs. City of Keene. 

Faulkner & Colony Manufacturing Co. vs. City of Keene. 

American Crystal, Inc. vs. City of Keene. 

International Narrow Fabric Company vs. City of Keene. 

George Delay vs. City of Keene. 

Crescent Company of Keene, Inc. vs. City of Keene. 
The following actions are new actions brought during the present year 
against the City. 

Faulkner & Colony Manufacturing Co. vs. City of Keene. 

Waldemar Christopherson vs. City of Keene. 
The following action was pending by the City of Keene at the beginning 
of the year. 

City of Keene vs. Ida Tatleman et als. 
In the list of suits all of the actions with the exception of the one of Wal- 
demar Christopherson vs. City of Keene were brought for abatement of taxes. 
Several of these cases have been disposed of without hearing, as follows: 

Sprague & Carleton Inc. vs. City of Keene. 

Kingsbury Manufacturing Co. vs. City of Keene. 

Leon C. Norwood vs. City of Keene. 

New England Woodenware Corporation vs. City of Keene. 

Perley F. Safford vs. City of Keene. 

George Delay vs. City of Keene. 

John Elliot vs. City of Keene. 

Elliot Brothers vs. City of Keene. 

John A. Booras et als vs. City of Keene. 

Crescent Company of Keene, Inc. vs. City of Keene. 

John Elliot vs. City of Keene. 

Elliot Brothers vs. City of Keene. 

Perley F. Safford vs. City of Keene. 

American Crystal, Inc. vs. City of Keene. 

International Narrow Fabric Co. vs. City of Keene. 
This leaves now pending before the courts the following suits for tax 
abatement. 

Kingsbury Machine Tool Corp. vs. City of Keene. 

Faulkner & Colony Manufacturing Co. vs. City of Keene. 
This reduction in the number of tax abatement suits pending against the 
City puts the City in a better position in respect to this type of suit than it 
has been for a number of years. 

In the matter of the suit brought by the City of Keene vs. Ida Tatleman 
et als, there has been considerable comment during the past year among those 



ANNUAL REPORT 123 

who possess a facility for destructive criticism relative to the time which it is 
taking to settle this case. I think therefore that it should be stated that the 
attitude of the defendants in this action is not one of opposing the City of 
Keene but one of willingness to cooperate so far as they are financially able. 
There is no question but what this so-called "automobile grave yard" case is a 
clear violation of our zoning law. The difficulty however lies in the fact that 
the matter has been allowed to continue for so many years that the cost of 
removing the junk now on the premises amounts to considerably more than 
the value of the land itself and amounts also to a sum which it is impossible 
for the defendants in this action to pay. Your Solicitor has had numerous 
conferences with the attorney for the defendants and an attempt is being 
made to work out some arrangement which will improve the appearance of 
this property but which at the same time will not impose an impossible heavy 
financial burden on the defendants. In the meantime the defendants have 
definitely agreed to add no more junk to the present collection. It is the 
opinion of your Solicitor that the strictly legal rights of the City in this case 
should be tempered with a certain amount of common sense. Acting on this 
basis I am proceeding with an attempt to reach some compromise in this case 
which will at least partially effect the purpose desired by you and at the same 
time be a financial possibility for the defendants. 

The action of Waldemar Christopherson vs. City of Keene is brought 
for a determination by the court of the damages which should be paid to Mr. 
Christopherson for certain land taken by the City of Keene in connection 
with the Sewage Disposal Project. In connection with this matter the Mayor 
and Board of Aldermen took the land by eminent domain under our statutes. 
After due deliberation they awarded to Mr. Christopherson the sum of two 
hundred dollars ($200), which sum has been tendered by your Solicitor to Mr. 
Christopherson but refused by him. It is probable that this action will be 
disposed of either by trial or by settlement during the coming year. 

During the year 1935 there has continued to be considerable legal work 
concerning the so-called Sewage Disposal Project undertaken by the City of 
Keene under the direction of the Federal AdminLstration of Public Works. 
Your Solicitor has cooperated in every way with other offices of the City to 
secure a speedy completion of this work. 

Under your direction the City Solicitor has undertaken a new compila- 
tion of the City Ordinances. This represents a considerable amount of work 
which he has had to carry on evenings to avoid interruptions. The work is 
practically finished and your Solicitor expects to submit the new ordinances 
for your approval at the second meeting of the City Councils in December 
1935. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN R. GOODNOW, 

City Solicitor.

REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF CEMETERIES 



To His Honor the Mayor and Gentlemen of the City Councils: 

I submit the report of the Cemetery department for the year ending 
November 30, 1935. 

Aside from the regular routine work have had 106 adult burials and 10 
infant burials during the year. 

We have made ninety new lots in Woodland Cemetery, N. E. D. so that 
there are now some over one hundred lots available. 

During the year new maps have been made of Woodland, Greenlawn 
and Woodland N. E. D. also the West Cemetery, 

We have spent some over $500.00 for work on trees, including taking down 
dead trees and trimming others, also work on gipsy moths. 

A new snow plow has been purchased at the expense of $265.00, this 
was used during last winter and we feel that it has nearly paid for itself in 
one season. 

We have sold 9 four grave lots, 2 three grave lots, 1 two grave lot and 2 
single graves. 

Collections for the year have been $3,164.15. 

Bills receivable, $1,180.00.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC PLAYGROUND 



To His Honor the Mayor and Gentlemen of the City Councils: 

The City Playground Committee hereby submits its report for the year 
1935. 

The detailed report of our Director discloses value received by the City 
of Keene. 

The ever increasing attendance brings to the surface the fact, that the 
work of the Playground Supervisors is carried on with knowledge and care. 

New equipment and more Supervisors are needed for the year 1936, hence 
we appeal, in the interst of the Children and their safety, that your Honorable 
Board will increase the playground appropriation $200.00. 

Our recommendation is based on the fact that we have always kept out 
of the red. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF WELFARE DEPARTMENT 



To His Honor the Mayor and Gentlemen of the City Councils: 

I herewith submit the report of the Welfare Department for the year 
ending December 1st, 1935. 

From Dec. 1st, 1934 to Jan. 1st, 1935 all relief was carried on under the 
provisions of House Bill 417 which expired Dec. 31st, 1934. 

From Jan. 1st, 1935 to April 1st, 1935 the relief was handled entirely by 
local authorities with no outside aid or supervision. 

On March 13th, 1935 the New Hampshire Legislature enacted House Bill 
296 which provided for the administration of relief under State Supervision. 
This bill was retroactive to Jan. 1st, 1935 and provided for a fifty per cent 
reimbursement to the Towns and .Cities for costs of direct aid. 



ANNUAL REPORT 127 

On Nov. 1st, 1935, the Welfare Department was notified by the State that 
we would not be reimbursed for direct relief expenditures after that date as 
their appropriation for that purpose was exhausted. The City will have to be 
prepared to carry on alone until July 1st, 1936, at which time another appro- 
priation will become available for the reimbursement of the Cities and Towns 
within the State.

134 CITY OF KEENE 



REPORT OF THE CHIEF ENGINEER 
OF THE FIRE DEPARTMENT 



To His Honor the Mayor, and Board of Aldermen: 

I hereby submit my report for the year ending November 30, 1935. 

There were 34 bell alarms, 414 still alarms, making a total of 448 alarms; 
16 of these calls were out of town. 

The estimated value of buildings damaged by fire, $527,100 00 

Damage to buildings, 16,757 19 

Insurance on said buildings, 432,000 00 

Insurance paid, 16,757 19 

Value of contents of buildings, 60,290 77 

Damage to contents, 6,073 06 

Insurance on said contents, 46,427 88 

Insurance paid, 6,073 06 

The number of alarms the department has answewred for the year is 448; 
this is 31 less than that of last year. Chimney fires is the largest part of the 
alarms the department answers. 

The fire loss for the year is what would be called a fair average, as there 
were no large fires during the year. There were a number that the loss would 
exceed $1,000, and with the number of alarms the loss was reasonable. 

The building inspections carried on during the year show that the busi- 
ness men in their Stores, Office rooms. Garages, Hotels and shops, keep their 
places in very good condition. 

The Motor Fire Apparatus and its equipment are in very good condition 
Most of the apparatus in the department has been painted or re-finished. 
Engine No. 1 painted. Engine No. 2 varnished. Ladder No. 1 painted, Combina- 
tion No. 1 and 2 painted, also Chief's car varnished. The department was 
lucky to get a painter to do the work here at the station, also his price for 
labor was very reasonable. There was no time that the apparatus being paint- 
ed was out of commission, but that it could be used if necessary. The perma- 
nent men at the station painted Combination No. 2. This makes the apparatus 
look as good as new also it is much easier to take care of. 

There has been added to the equipment, during the year the necessary 
attachments for the use of l^i inch hose, viz: Nozzle tips so that the small 
hose can be connected to the end of the large stream, also a two-way Siamese 
so that one 2 Vz inch hose line will supply two 1 V2 inch hose lines, also reducers 
from 2i'2 inch to 1M> inch for hydrant connections direct to 1^/2 inch hose, 
1,000 feet of 1% inch hose was purchased for this purpose, 100 feet is carried 
on each pumping engine to be used as leader lines. 

A good many fire departments throughout the country are placing this 
small hose equipment in their departments, as the water loss is much smaller 
and it is very much easier to handle, and also a good number of fires in the 
residential sections can be handled with these small lines of hose. 

The department has on hand 9,900 feet of 2Vi. inch double jacket rubber 
lined hose, and 200 feet of unserviceable hose, also about 1,200 feet of linen 
unlined hose in hose house at South Keene, and 1,000 feet of iy2 inch single 
jacket rubber hose. 

There has been turned over to the Water Department 100 feet of unserv- 
iceable hose. 

The Fire Alarm System is in very good condition. 

There has been purchased this year a new set of battery for the fire alarm, 
this purchase did not require only half as many cells of battery as before on 
account of the rectifiers which were installed last year and takes the place of 
one set of battery. 

There have also been purchased two fire alarm boxes for replacement, No. 
41 Middle Street cor. Center, and 113 Railroad Street cor. 93rd.

We recommend that the sum of $219,000.00 be raised by taxation. 

The elimination of some items of extraordinary expenses recommended 
by department committees does not necessarily indicate the disapproval of 
your commiittee. We feel that items of this nature should be discussed and 
approved by the incoming committees before becoming a part of the budget. 

We recommend the continuance of the policy of strict economy through- 
out all departments until such time as the extraordinary relief burden may 
be reduced to a normal appropriation. 

Signed : 

GEORGE F. T. TRASK, 
WINTHROP FAULKNER, 
CHESTER L. KINGSBURY, 
RICHARD T. CALEP, 
Joint Standing Committee on Finance.

the fiscal year, amounting to $1,045,157.30 and the disbursements as reported 

by the City Clerk agree with the entries made by the Auditor in his book. 

Respectfully submitted,
