The new oil heating plant at the Bradlee School was inspected on Wednesday night by the School Committee. Installed at a cost of around $3,600 on a bid secured early in the year by the school board, the plant would have cost about $4,600 if installed on a summer bid, the contractor stated.

Four persons were removed to the Lawrence General Hospital and two treated by a doctor as the result of an automobile crash early Sunday morning at the Lawrence line on North Main Street. Skidding on the car rails in the dense fog was given as the cause of the accident by Lawrence police who investigated.

Mrs. Douglas Donald of Carisbrooke Street returned home fro her European trip last Saturday.

William Moore of Morton Street was awarded the bronze medal for being the most versatile child on the Central playground at the annual field day held Monday. Originally scheduled for Friday, the event had to be postponed because of the heavy rain. Selectman Roy E. Hardy, who was introduced by playground committee chairman Henry G. Tyer, made the award.
