Majority of the Municipal Council—
State Should Take Over the Admin-
istration of Both These Problems
In the last days of December the
Municipal Council passed a zoning or-
dinance. A committee of citizens
aided and abetted by an expert in
such matters had devised and reported
They recommended the obvious. No
one familiar with the city and its
needs would have had much difficulty
in outlining such a plan in the rough,
even after a cursory survey of a week
In the main it restricts business to
the center of the city—manufacturing
and commercial enterprises where al-

ing the entire wharf frontage in the
East Gloucester section.
It debarred such business adven-
tures as hot dog and similar stands in
the residential sections except that it
allowed those already established to
What is of vital interest to summer
residents, the territory given over for
summer residential purposes was ful-
ly protected against further encroach-
ment of undesirable enterprises such
as have given offense and caused con-
troversy in the past. It was well con-
sidered and framed.
According to its provisions the in-
spector of buildings first passes on
building permit applications. If any
are dissatisfied with his decision they
have recourse to a board of appeals—
a committee of citizens outside the
Municipal Council, seven in all, who
have the power to reverse, if they de-
sire, the verdict of the building inspec-
tor. If any party is still dissatisfied
he has a third recourse back to the
Municipal Council, but if one member
objects he is still barred. After that he
may go to the courts. It would appear
that these provisions are fairly ample
But back of all this is a joker which
permits the nullification of these pre-
vious decisions by a majority decision
of the Municipal Council—a body of
taxpayers and bear the burden.
Think it over.

activity more than politics, is the
theory that self-preservation is the
first law of nature more strongly ex-
emplified. Politicians reason only in
terms of votes, and where a hundred
votes one way or the other may con-
tinue him in office or relegate him to
the discard he is apt to jump to the
side which has the biggest voting guns
to fire election day. No matter how
competent an official or worthy a
measure it has to walk the plank if
political expediency so requires it. So
it has proved in this case of the ordi-
nance. It is India rubber elastic.
Personally we do not think the sum-
mer resident section is endangered
under the present dispensation al-
though the business area has been
thrown into parts of the summer ter-
ritory originally exempted by such
process of amendment. With all its im-
perfections, its adoption is a step for-
ward, the principle having been recog-
nized and that step forward was not
achieved without effort.
But The Shore is convinced that this
zoning ordinance and the traffic reg-
ulation ordinances to be effective, and
saved from selfish and political caprice,
should be either in the hands of a
county or state board, preferably the
latter, where once established, the per-
sonal contact and pressure of interest-
ed parties for their abrogation will be
a matter of difficulty. Regardless of
what may be said of home rule, which
in many analyses is not the best rule,

throughout the state. This at once
commends itself as the only logical
manner of dealing with this question,

fused by the many conflicting munici-
pal rules governing the matter. By all

West Feasible and Least Expensive
Perhaps the outstanding highway
or any improvement which forces it-
self upon the attention of the real es-
tate sojourning summer resident of
Cape Ann is that of a second entrance
to the city.
In early colonial times the original
entrance was by way of Essex to the
West parish down Concord street across
a causeway to Biskie, now Russ or An-
nisquam Island, thence across the riv-
er by ferry to Hodgkins’ landing, now
Ferry street, which connects with
Washington street at the Addison Gil-
bert Hospital grounds. In those days
the central part of the town was in
After 1750 the center of things was
transferred to the harbor and a short
cut resulted by continuing down the
parish to the seashore over what is
now the Essex avenue causeway across
the Cut or Blynman bridge, and just
before the Revolution it became the
principal and only thoroughfare into
the town, the ferry being discontinued
after a hundred years, always operat-
ed by a Hodgkins. So much for that.
The canal which the bridge spans
has been frequently widened and
dredged, making a short cut between
Gloucester and Ipswich Bay, saving 15
miles to the fishermen. Since the
shore gill netting and other branches
of the fishery have attained such im-
portance in recent years, larger and
larger draft craft avail themselves of
this passage, the drawbridge spanning

THE NORTH SHORE THEATRE
' Starting Sunday for four days
it is our pleasure to present to
the people of Cape Ann one of the
finest pictures of this or any
other year, “Ramona,” with Do-
lores Del Rio. Hail Dolores Del
Rio’s initial starring vehicle for
United Artists. Coming as an un-
known in her first picture—the
Mexican beauty astounded the
world in “Resurrection.” Since
then, her every appearance has
been a sensational triumph. In-
genue, vampire, comedienne, tra-
gedian—Dolores Del Rio _ has
earned her right to greatness!
The book is Helen Hunt Jackson’s
perennial best-seller—now in its
92nd edition! A tale of California
in the days when gold was being
filehed from the earth! When his-

on the eve of a gala event. What
follows needs no comment. The
play is mostly dialogue, and the
lines are replete with meaning.
The parts of Lucille, the daugh-
ter-in-law, and Joe, her husband,
were well executed by Margaret
McCarty and Ted Osborne, while
Alfred Child, Jr., played Dad
Dunham, the country father.
“Mary’s Lamb,” by Hubert Os-

ner in a Broadway cabaret, for its
characters, a pair of Greenwich

form in every respect, and they
were well supported by the other
members of the cast.

ord to authenticate the name Wingaer-
sheek nor does it appear in print or
writing until about 1800, two hundred
years after the settlement.
In Pringle’s History, page 16, occurs the
following: ‘“Annisquam,” the designation of
the northern section of the cape, first occurs
in Wood’s map of 1634, and is spelled Ana-
squam and in Josselyn’s “Account of Two
Voyages in New England” in 1638, the spell-
ing is “Wondosquam.” But in neither is the
word “Wingaersheek” or any other designa-
tion applied to the harbor and it is the opin-
ion of Indian antiquarians that Anasquam or
Wondosquam are Indian words, for which the
annalist and the cartographer had good war-
rant, for these explorers carried Indian in-
terpreters familiar with the coast, and was the

Indian term for the whole of what is now
Cape Ann. Therefore, there is the best of
warrant for the use of the word Annisquam
or Wonasquam as may be preferred. And it
is the only Indian designation for the Cape
that has come down to us and only because
of the research of these explorers noted.
Various surmises have been made as to the
origin of the word Wingaersheek. The In-
dian words “winne” and “wonne” are said to
mean something pleasant and the word
“Squam” a breaking water beach, the combi-
nation giving “a beautiful breaking water
beach.” Plausible enough when the sur-
roundings are taken into consideration.

When the Dorchester colony made
the first permanent settlement in 1623
there was not a solitary Indian on the
soil Where Champlain 17 years be-
fore found a settlement of some 500
Indians none remained. Only great
mounds of clamshells along the banks
of what is now Squam River told of
the former presence. In 1615-17 a
pestilence thought to be small pox—
the white man’s contribution—literally
ran riot among the New England Indi-

OLFING continues to grow in
popularity. More and more
are taking up the ancient
sport of kings and in point of
actual participation it is by
far the national game.
Funny about golf! Back in
the nineties some one introduced it in-
to this country. Few knew how to pro-
nounce the word and a very few on
this side knew how to play the game.
In that brief period it has grown in-
to tremendous vogue. There is nothing
to parallel it in the annals of sport.
Another old English diversion the
writer would like to see more popular
hereabouts is archery. A_ splendid
sport essentially that of a gentlewo-
man or gentleman. The cost of an out-
fit is moderate and many fields and
closes are available hereabouts on
which to place targets.

MY LADY GOES SHOPPING
No News of Jack—More Discussion
Concerning the Mysterious Unknown
—Shopping—The Stranger Speaks
Consternation reigned our ordinarily
peaceful little group on the Cape Ann
Shore. A week had passed with no
word of Jack. A week fraught with
anxiety, vibrant with suspense. He
had simply disappeared, leaving abso-
lutely no trace, and we were powerless
Our first move, instigated by the
less-excitable Chubby, had been an ef-
fort to locate Jack’s car, which several
of us had seen being driven down the
Main street of Gloucester by a totally
unknown man. Descriptions‘ of the
thief varied too much to give credence
to the ideas of any particular one of
us; Marion thought he was a large
man, Gay was sure he was extremely
small. Jimmie remembered him as be-
ing dark, I myself recalled distinctly
the fair profile of the man in the car.
And so it was useless to attempt the
tracing, not to mention the identifica-
tion of such a person, although each
of us was sure he would recognize the
man in a second encounter.
“I think he’s kidnapped, and is be-
ing held for ransom,” Marion declared.
It was early afternoon, and the Clan
was gathered on Marion’s porch for its
customary conclave. Oblivious of Mar-
ion’s very good porch furniture, which
of course was cf the National House
Furnishing Company, the band was
grouped about the shady veranda
steps, indulging only in the luxury of
a mass of soft, vividly-hued cretonne
cushions which had originated in the
House of Patillo.
“Then why,’ asked Peggy, resting
languidly against a pillar and contem-
plating thoughtfully the Paul Revere
hand-wrought lantern above the door-
way, “then why haven’t we heard any-
thing from the kidnappers?” Which
was a piece of logic not to be denied.
“My theory,’ ventured Chubby
from his official position at Peggy’s
side, ‘is that Jack’s disappearance has
much to do with our Man of Mystery.
No direct communication, perhaps.
That would be impossible. Neverthe-
less, there is a connection and a baf-
“IT agree with Chubby,” remarked
Doctor Landis from the edge of the
group. “From my own personal and
somewhat puzzled observations of the
case, it seems highly probable. The on-
ly one, in my opinion, who can throw
light upon the matter, is the one who
maintains complete and utter silence.
His story, if he could talk, might be a
Here at Ovington’s are scores
of prizes that pay fitting tribute
to the deed without exacting un-
due tribute from the exchequer.
Cape Ann Shore, July 21, 1928.
“Can’t you make him talk, Doc?”
The doctor shook his head. “No sur-
gery can alter that condition,” he re-
plied. “The man is suffering from se-
vere shock, similar to the shell-shock
the soldiers received during the war,
perhaps, which only time and his own
nervous system can correct.”
“But how soon will he become him-
self, Doctor?” asked Marion. “Surely
you have had similar cases before.”
“Somewhat,” was the reply, “though
this is by far the most interesting.
And as to the duration of his ‘illness,’
I would not venture to guess. He may
recover tomorrow, and then again, his
recovery may require months. One can-
“Do you suppose,” asked Gay, half-
fearfully, ‘‘do you suppose that some-
body, somebody who wishes to hurt us,
has been lurking about here for the
past week, and accidentally heard Jack
speak of identifying the bill-fold of
“What bill-fold?” inquired Chubby
and the Doctor simultaneously. And
Peggy explained to them about finding
the empty cod-fish skin wallet in the
Unknown’s coat and Jack’s determi-
nation to take it to Blanchard’s in
hopes of finding a clue.
“Possibly,” remarked the Doctor, at
the end of Peggy’s recital, “but not
probably. The evidence, as in all good
detective stories, is too strong. I doubt
very much if the bill-fold enters into
The men were more or less inclined
to agree with the Doctor’s viewpoint,
but the girls were loathe to give up so
romantic, and to them, so undeniable
“At any rate,” suggested Peggy, ris-
ing, “‘let’s all drive over to town and
settle the matter. We can easily find
out if Jack went there at all a week

And so we set off again on a new pil-
grimage, leaving the Doctor, who
would not leave his patient, and Chub-
by who decided to remain with him.
“Though I would enjoy a frappe at
Barker’s,’” he remarked ruefully, as
we Re purted’
It was an exceedingly warm morn-
ing, and the ocean breeze, as we drove
along the shore, was delightful. We
decided to let Gay and Jimmie make
the inquiries about Jack, while the rest
of us trooped off in all directions, each
bent on his own particular shopping.
Marion had heard that Arch-pre-
server shoes could be bought at Arm-
strong’s Shoe Store, and set o:f imme
diately in that direction. Peggy wished
to buy some novelty keepsakes for her
friends at home, so went directly to
Bott’s Leather Goods Store, where she
always found lovely things in the fa-
mous tanned cod-fish skin, while I, af-
ter a cursory visit to the Gloucester
National Bank, found myself wander-
ing about Jason’s “bigger and better”
Department Store. On the new second
floor, I found a new rest room with the
added advantage of a telephone pay
station, which I thought a decided at-
traction. Hurrying back after a linger-
ing survey of the establishment, I met
Marion just leaving Dorr’s Meat Mar-
ket, and we hied us together to W. G.
Brown in search of Hudnut. We found
him there, in the elusive fragrance of

Returning to the car, we were much
chagrined to find that the others had
been waiting a long time for us. Time
passes so quickly in the midst of
beauty. So long had we worshipped at
her Shrine, in fact, there had been
time for a tour of inspection of the

chine, and a brief visit to Shepherd's
Meat Market for supplies.

Marion insisted upon stopping first at

to see the inside of what she called “a

passed scornfully unnoticed.

dresses. There was much fitting and
promenading and looking in mirrors,
which ended by each securing the
“most adorable frock in the shop.”
Marion’s was a tea gown of figured
chiffon, a galaxy of colors on a white
background, with the finely tucked
skirt falling gracefully from the waist.
Joan’s was a sports dress of pink
crepe, a two-piece affair, both skirt
and blouse finely tucked in a geomet-
rical pattern. Belt and collar ended
in a tie arrangement, giving a charm-
ing youthful appearance to the whole.
Returning to the car, we found that

causes much delay and congestion, es-

the mechanism of the bridge goes

He showed how there were eight
different locations for bridge heads
across which a _ bridge might be
thrown, six below the railroad bridge
and two above.
Among those indicated was that fol-
lowing the ancient Concord street—-
Biskie or Russ Island causeway, with
a suspension bridge thrown across the
river connecting with the mainland at
Ferry street. This bridge was to have
sufficient clearance to permit the
smaller masted crafts, shore boats,
yachts, etc., to pass, without recourse
to draw raising. Of course any bridge
must of necessity have a draw, al-
though few tall sparred craft use the
waterway. The draw raising by this
plan would be infrequent.
This, it is figured, was the least ex-
pensive of any of the propositions, the
bridge span being the narrowest of the
We have always fancied this parti-
cular settlement of this proposition
which is bound to come some day not
so far away, for the accidents to
bridge mechanism are apt to occur
when least looked for. First, it seems
the most logical, giving the shortest
approach to the city from the north
and east and a short cut for the peo-
ple in the northern and upper centrai
parts of the city. It would develop
properties in this section rapidly, for
ward eight, in area, is equal to all the
rest of the city combined—one of the
finest high land summer locations im-
aginable. It will be the short cut to
Northern Massachusetts, New Hamp-
shire and Maine points.
An alternative plan above the River
is for a crossing from the Clark’s Hill
bridgehead, near the glue works, across
the river to Wolf’s Hill. This gives a
53 and 55 Washington Street
longer span and would not afford the
land development possibilities in the
upper part of the parish that the first
named would create.
Of the several locations noted below
the bridge, some closely parallelling the
present structure, the steel bridge
construction will be from three to four
times longer than the uppermost plan
and the cost of these will run over a
million, according to the estimates,
while the old ferry route it is estimat-
ed will cost about $275,000, there be-
ing no land damages, as in the case of
all the other schemes mentioned. Also,
most worthy of consideration, it is the
only plan where land development pos-
sibilities may recoup the cost.
In some of these plans, private inter-
ests only, rather than public benefits,
as a whole, would accrue. It will be
well when the time is ripe for the im-
provement that both county and state
officials have the controlling voice in
this matter, as they are less liable to
be influenced by selfish and local con-
siderations. For that reason the state
and county when working in conjunc-
tion with cities absolutely refuse to be
a party to road improvement unless
they control the direction of the work

CECELIA (“CISSIE”) LOFTUS
The thing which impresses one most
about “‘Cissie” Loftus is a subtle air of
humor and good-humoredness. She
seems to be secretly and privately
amused by life and all that’s dn it.
Smilingly, genial, she watches its prog-
ress of events with a quizzical interest,
a half-twinkle in her eye. She is ut-
terly frank in her opinions, and abso-
“T love the movies,’
answer to my question. “Of course,
there will always be the legitimate
stage. It has periods of slumping like
every other business, but nothing will
ever take its place.”
The Vitaphone movies are a “freak
thing,” she says, which will go on for
some time, perhaps. But they will not
be permanent, nor will they take the
place of the legitimate. The element of
personal magnetism which is the glory
of the play, and the individual, direct
contact afforded by it, will never be
superseded either by the silent drama,
or the Vitaphone.
The stage of the present day, Miss
Loftus thinks, is very interesting. It
has lost the qualities of drama that
she personally loves, the lightness, the
fragrance, the poetic romanticism of
the days of her greatest triumphs, yet
the modern drama has advantages.
Miss Loftus is a great admirer of
Shakespearean plays, though she con-
siders her Marguerite in ‘Faust’ her
finest performance. Another interest-
ing play to her was Peter Pan, which
she did in London. ;
Herself the mother of a seventeen-
year-old boy, Miss Loftus is an advo-
cate of the younger generation. She

Miss Grace Nelson Helfenstein, 30,

and they watched her dive, float and do
other stunts. At length she floated,
perfectly still on the surface. After
a while there was no movement and
the parents became alarmed and called
to Harold McCarthy, who conducts a
lunch cart nearby.
McCarthy swam out and found the
girl lifeless, her head submerged in
water. He brought her to the shore

DEATH OF MRS. JAMES C. HAWKS
The death of Mrs. James C. Hawks
of Buffalo, at her home, Wingaersheek
Beach, last week, removes one of the
best known and respected members of
the summer colony.
Mrs. Hawks came here some 35 years
ago with her husband, the late James
S. Hawks, a Michigan railroad presi-
dent and executive, who with his broth-
er, the late Edward C. Hawks, pur-
chased the Willoughby Park tract and
what is now called Wingaersheek
Beach and since that time has spent
her summers here.
Mrs. Hawks, whose maiden name
was Cook, was a fine representative of
the Colonial people who settled Upper
New York State and endeared herself
to many. The keynote of her charac-
ter was a fine altruism, embodied in
the domesticity of the word neighbor-
liness, always thoughtful and consider-
ate of others and a true friend in every
This spirit was strikingly exemplified
several years ago when she gave to the
city the desirable tract of upland and
strand known as Short Beach, Farm
Point, opposite Annisquam village, as a
public park and bathing beach and
when it was pointed out to her that a
boiling spring on the property was not
included she at once had this tract add-
ed to the gift.
She leaves two sons, Russell and Ed-
ward A. The body was taken to Buf-
falo for interment in the family lot.

with the incomparable Emil Jan-
nings at his very best. This is a
drama of East Limehouse, Lon-
don’s rapidly disappearing slum.
It concerns the regeneration of a
giant bruiser, “Basher Bill,” who
rules the ugly district with his
fists. His domestic life is shared
by a girl of the streets. A Salva-
tion Army lass comes into the
neighborhood, seeking in her pity
and piety to win back the souls
of the slums. She is the instru-
ment of the bruiser’s reform.
On the same bill we will pre-
sent Phyllis Haver, Stuart Holmes
and Wallace MacDonald in “Your
Wife and Mine.” This is not a
highly emotional sex drama, it is
far from that. It is broad, clean
humor perfectly agreeable to all
sorts and conditions of folks. All
will find it very entertaining be-
cause it was made for laughs and
has nothing else.
