The meeting "took place after the Citizen and Chronicle went to press, The meeting brought together- members of the Union County Planning Board, "Cranford Planning Board, the Cranford Township Committee and the jCranfordj^Traffic.

The.mayor said that the meeting would present differing views on the part of the township and the county as to projected traffic problems north and south through the township and those expected to result from expansion of Union College. i- Mayor Pringle said that Walter Gardiner; traffic engineer of the Union County panel, would present the results of traffic surveys conducted along Springfield and Centennial Aves. , and around Union College. "With the expansion of the college,", the mayor explained, "we wanted a study of what the-impact of that expansion would be. In addition we feel that it is conceivable that we could need some help' irv storm, drainage as well.."

"Concurrent' legislation by the^ States of New Jersey and New York will authorize the, Port of*. New York Authority tcf. construct and finance, this new rail facility," Commissioner Kohl added. "The Department x>i Transportation with the cooperation of the Port Authority will undertake the preliminary . studies required to develop the

specific plans for financing and construction." • ,. • According' to Mr. Creighton, the feasibility study has been completed, but the engineering has been started. Present right-qf- • ways will be used, which will speed up the process of engineering,' Mr.° CVeighbn added. —He --said-thalrin roughly ~ three years, merely an estimate he emphasized, the engineering - will be completed. The municipalities involved in the new plan will not participate in financing the new link, Mr. Creighton bbserved,~~although"on theplanning, Creighton felt the Commissioner intended that the municipalities involved would be closely advised and consulted with.

Changes in the Newspaper
• This is the last article in a , series on your new Citizen and Chronicle. What is the philosophy of the Citizen and Chronicle? This newspaper is the legal paper for the communities "it servesCranford; Kenilworth, and Garwood. That fact alone imposes a "special responsibility to be fair, accurate, and complete on The Citizen and Chronicle. Fairness, we hope, will be unlimited. The newspaper will make every .effort to cover both sides of any controversy, and provide space to. competing points of view in politics, -public affairs, and other activities. Accuracy is part of any good newspaper. We seek a level of professional news writing which will give our readers every reason to have confidence in what they read. In the event of errors, we will make retractions. Completeness is the heart of editing. To any given reader, interested in some matters more than others, the coverage in any given issue of some subject may seem, to be inadequate. To other readers, less interested, it may seem more than adequate. In the end, the editors must decide what makes a complete newspaper, subject to the limitations of space,.time, and reportorial staff. In the long run,-The Citizen and Chronicle expects to be able to, reflect the events of our communities in good detail apd without gaps. " An important part of the news philosophy of the newspaper is the contributions of readers. They are welcomed, both as news and as letters to the editor, to appear on the editorial page. Again, they are subject to editiing-letters with extreme care and if possible with the assent of the writer-so that the paper may cover as many items of news as possible. Above all, The Chronicle hopes to reflect an attitude of courtesy and good will in its editorial comment -and its news coverage. It feels that civility and good humor are as much the mark of a good newspaper as of a friendly person, and hopes that its standards of good will merely reflect the qualities it is sure its readers value in themselvesand their friends.

> Track Now!

" To the" Editor: lay Indirect my remarks the people in Cranford who might be called friends of the Cranford High School track team? * There must be folks in this town who are not aware of the fact that there is no decent track in our town. Since 1958, we have had no home track meets. In 1963 we did have some kind of small "thing," but no home meet since 1958. It would be great for those who as high school students and-or college students have experienced the thrill andsatisfaction of victory, andor the agony of defeat in the field of track-to come forward now and support 'what will have to be a people effort: Getting a track built NOW!! Those QJL you wfio SFeT interested because your son j s a member of the team-or you know how it feels to have been, a track rnan--or you are concerned, please join the effort. It* is my understanding that the money is there; the idea is there; -the space is, almost not there (due to pool plans). There can be no more excuses given by anyone in Cranford, especially since the needed capital is avairabfe. Great! It must have accumulated quite a sizeable amount of interest over the years. Oh! Oh! I hear a cry. No money?! Where is it? What was it used for"? Who authorized the expenditure? Why wasn't it directed toward construction of a track. Please, no more stalling! Answers now! Thirteen years is a long time to wait for a decent track to work on and have home meets. Considering the fact that those who pole vault go to another gracioup nt]d understanding towrr-to practice. Considering the fact that the areas for long and high jump, shot put and discus are almost nonexistent-is it not astonishing the showing of the trackmen from CHS? In spite of the neglect and apathy, they perforjnn unbelievable feats, . One wonders, what the results might be if Coach Ray White and staff had decent field conditions with which to work. One cannot know what to feel and to be ashameduntil it"is experienced. This is not a pleasant sensation. It is particularly uncomfortable when the track coach of another town

John Crane built two mills in 171(3 at what is-rtow the Union Ave. dam. He was overseer of highways for . Elizabeth Towne, and the Rahway River marked the western- boulitlary of the original settlement. He was also one of the 'first Town Committee ;of seven freeholders ..selected by the Klizabethtowne Associates —to represent-their rights-in-tht> growing argument with the British Proprietors, over duplicate absentee1 landlord titles t " till tlvir property ' This was choice land, arid the."West Fields" beyond • .tho Rahway River had just been divided'up among the growing second generation of the Associates in H)cJi). The original farmlands had.all been filled, and the initial . boundaries were extended west by "reinterpreting" the '; .1 (>B-4 • treaty vy ith {li.o.Inilfiins.Tlii.s- was oj.u< of n-iany s-L-idi- "imfnrtnTiate inndfMTtsnn early colonial historyT-The river here •meant' -food J,ind. water for live Lenni Lenape .Indians-, and? tht*..Mjhnisink 'Trail, their"main''highway r across the state, ran along its western bank. It ran between their winter home oh the headwaters of the Delaware and their summer camping grounds on. 'tidewater at Shrewsbury Inlet'., In this area the- Jjrail crossed from ftcho Lake, to a large springjiear the pond at I'nion College, at what is now Indian Spring Rd., and .on down the river, towards the site of (-'nine's Mills, pa-st Crane's ford ;i,t the upper Sprirlgl'ickl Ave. bridge. ' The name Rahway is said to -be a eq.rrup.tion of the Indian name_VVahakewany, meaning "place where eggs are found." Apparently the marshy areas along the river with their plentiful supply of eggs and berry patches nearby were an important factor in determining Ijie path of the Indians. 'The next settlement north along the river and t h e : trail, received the descriptive name (of Spring Fields or Springfield in the early days, about the same time as Westfield. • • / The road from . Springfield ,.to< Kli/.abeth T.owne. followed approximately lh(\ path of the Minnisink Trail % as far as Crane's'Mills. It crossed the Rahway River at ('Knife's Ford just above the niills, at what is now the second Springfield 'Aviv bridge. From Crane's Ford to the mills vy'hat is now Riverside Dr. appears'on early .maps' as- Old Springfield Ave.,irwhich now dead ends at> the river. The site is marked by a monument, and, the 1 path of the old road leading to the ford can be easily seen on the northern bank.- ' The Fli/.abethtowne farms came up to the east .f'mhl< of the river, and John -Crane built a grist' mill there to grind their grain into a coarse flour. On the west bunk he built a sawmill, to cut timbers.and- lumber from the virgin forest. The first settler to cleara home site, in the, WesJ. Fields was John Denman, and the road- he cut through the forest to ('rane's sawnuU finally became the. main street of the'village. A half-century later,'at the time of the Revolutionary War, John Crane -III encouraged the local farmers to donate grain which he ground free ol'-charge for the use of Cieneral'W'ashmgton's troops encamped at Morristown. Thf village of Westfield-was raided in Juiie, 1777, by the niajn armies of Howe and Comwallis, who ca/ried away everything movable. This included J'ood, livestock, and even the church bell which vvas-lattrryecovered in New York City, {.'rane's Ford was a natumj'outpost for colonial military patrols-and the gUarri-posted there in 1777 were a part of thevKssex Brigade, yo-mmanded by -Major Oliver Spencer o'f Mizabethtovvii;—•_ The farms durjng'tlm'p'eTtm'^nTl-w^llJxito the lH00's4 were largely the original 200-acri1 plots of the West Fields, and major street line's still follow this pattern.

Molly and Miln were the first names'of other members of the firm. . Alden Bigelow donated a site for a new Presbyterian church at Springfield and Union and built himself' arrim-' posing residence next door, which he named Marl borough > q House for his boyhood home in Massachusetts. This is how thesiteof Cleveland.School. and Marlborough Street (.which explains the surprising offset in Springfield Ave.) originally led straight into the private driveway curving in front of his home.' Traces of this c^jT*still"be seen in front of the school. . The name Craneville was changed shortly after 1865 to Cranford, a shortened form of Crane>s i'ord. The change. apparently started_because^the_cailroa£l_ob.jected_to_the similarity in sound of Craneville and Plainfield for station calls. Both names appeared together for a while on legal" documents. The transition was completed about 1867, when the post office became known as Cranford. . A new school district was set up and the first grade school on thcvslte of the old Grant School building was- built in 1868.

This was all part of Union Township, and residents had to g o to Connecticut Farms to vote. It had been part of Rahway until 1861 when Linden and Union were set apart, and those southeast of the river and the railroad stilfhad to vote in Linden. The growing community was thus on the fringes of five neighboring towns,.half of if in Westfteld, spilling over at the north and south into Springfield and Clark Township. "The move for a local, government was pushed by the developers. buKwith some opposition from potential taxpayers. Negotiations took well over a year, and the Township of Cranford-vyas officially created by an Act of the _ New Jersey State Legislature on'March 14," 1871. Once established, the expansion of Cranford continued. North and South Avenues parallel to the railroad were opened in 1871 and 1872,'and new'ehjurches were'organized by both Fpiscopalians and Roman Catholics. But there was trouble ahead. • • A po^t-war depression had hit the country, and it kept getting worse. School budgets hit a peak in 1874 and dropped steadily to half this amount over the next five years. Tax • > collections fell off and developers werecaught shor'Uwhen property sales began'to drop. * * J3fhe situation became so serious that a series of bills were privately introduced into the legislature to split up the township and give it back to theoriginal communities. This aroused public spirit, and the offensive bills were quickly dropped, but financial troubles continued. The City of Rahway defaulted on its municipal bonds; tho mayor of Cranford went bankrupt, and foreclosures were all too frequent. In most cases title reverted to the original owners • under a compromise settlement, because no buyers could be found. .• Revovery from this period of hard times" was slow. By 1884, thqnew street lights were installed that were ordered in 1872, things.were, well underway again,, and normal "growth was continuing. Renewed real estate development emphasized the advantages of ther river winding back and forth through the town. This was used for swimming iji summer and skating in winter, but most of all for canoeing. The first of a series xtf annual River Carnivals was 1886, a twilight regatta with gaily lighfed'.canoes' and musicians following them-along the river bank.

The idea was to make available" on weekend evenings, a plume number to serve as -an anonymous sounding board . for teenagers and a referral service to various agencies which could help.our youth to face and solve- their problems. The Cranford Clergy Council was . contacted, followed by Church Women United,, who, along with Hillside PTA members, started recruiting volunteers to man the phone.

In 1892 the Cranford Casino was built as a center of Social 1'yents, at a beautiful location on the bend of the river above the dam Guests frequently arrived by canoe,^n3~3urjlng the Gay Nineties the Casino was known as one of the' finest clubhouses in New Jersey. The population of Cranford more than doubled between ISOwTd-rawrrrehTTrrsno 2,654, But the attendance at the river carnival was over 8,000 in 1896. The program for 1908 lists a hundred decorated canoes, with a prize of a new canoe for the most beautiful float, and fireworks followed by a dance at the Casino. The banks of the river were lined with ith over 3000 3,000 J Japanese lanterns, l t and d the th river i e rs ^ a s spanned in many places by arches of lanterns. The advent of the automobile made the crowds attending the carnival even larger, and unfortunately , less well behaved. Each year the "notices in the jirogram asking visitors not to destroy Shrubbery or walk off with the decorations became more prominent, and more emphatic. The Carnival- was Interrupted during the war and resumed afterwards, but 1928 was the last. The crowd that year was tremendous, and the damage done was just too

Visiting Nurse Assn. Formed 1923
By Alice Tomlihson The Vfl'age Impravement Association felt that nursing care; was a vital and much needed, service in the community and it was through its efforts that the Visiting Nurse Association of Cranford, was organized on November 2, 1923. The original trustees selected for the first year of operation were:. Abbie B. ~ Ruthrauff, Julia Hayes, Beatrice Warner, (wife of J^mes-E- Warner, former owner and editor of the Cranford Citizen • and Chronicle), Belle M. Fay , and Leah Goeckel, who all signed the original Certificate of Incorporation. \ The Township Committee was finally.convinced that -__thf>__i.nwn dirt np<4 siK'h_a_ service and it assumed the , ' cost of operation until a board could be formed and an organization established. The Red Cross helped by giving surgical supplies and dressings and also by donating a car for the nurse to use on her rounds, ,!*Since that time local conditions-have changed enormously. Today a visiting nurse (who is arv R.N.) must'fill many more roles than were required in former years. In addition to her, primary' function of patient care,- she teaches .disease prevention, is a social worker and • a link between individuals and organizations, such as hospitals, schoqjs and social agencios. T h i s career requires not.only specialized training^ but also good judgment, perserverance and a genuine interest in and love of people.

On Its 100th Anniversary

Junior Woman's Club Organized in
Almost. 21 years ago, the Cranford Junior Woman's Club of, the Village Improvement Association was incorporated into the Junior Membership Department of .the New Jersey Federation of Women's Clubs. The club membership comprises civic-minded women between, 18 and 35 years of age committed to serve their community. Although the club was chartered in 1950, it was organized by 12 young women in 1949, undeC the guidance of Mrs.-Charles Sehillinger, the first adviser from the VIA. The ' first meetings were, held in the library of Union Junior College, then located on Holly St., at what is now the Union County Cerebral Palsy Center. The meetings have- since been held, always in the evening, at such, places as the Calvary Lutheran Church, Veteran's Memorial .Homo, Cranford Baptist Church and, now, the Cerebral Palsy Treatment Center. Cranford Juniors participate in an anryial large-, scale .-undertaKjng "called a state project in which each of New Jersey's.118 Junior clubs pa.fticipate. Some past projecP\included the purchase, of an eye mobile, and the --.•establishment of a permanent fund for upper extremity amputees. The eye unit tours the . ytate.and provides free eye examinations and .encourages , good - visual,practices. .The amputee fund provides money' for" treatment and for the purchase ' of necessary prosthetic devices> A recent state project raised. $25rOOO to build new kitchen and dining facilities at Ranch Hope in Allqway, where a residential school <£ares for and rehabilitates troubled' l>oys. National and International agencies which ht\ve received assistance from the Juniors are Project Hope, the Hospital Ship Hope, Project Concern, and UNICEF. The state projects of the past year have been the control of drug abuse, and Ihe preservation of.Jhe environment. In 19G4, the Juniors presented the pediatrie ward at Muhlenberg Hospital in Plainfield with a -book wagon that is stocked each year with books and games for bodfast children. In Cranford, the Juniors' have sponsored library story hours, the Halloween p a r a de , s um mer playgrounds for retarded children, and baby-sitter training courses. Volunteer services and funds have been donated to the Janet Memorial llomefor (Jirls, in Kli/.abeth, the Union County Unit of the Retarded Children's Association, the New Jersey Commission for the Blind, and the Union County Cerebral Palsy Treatment Center. Most recently, the Juniors and the VIA have co-sponsor'ed two campaigns of the Mothers' March of Dimes.
