The boulder which is to be erected by the Memorial park association to mark the site of the homes of the first settlers will be placed in position on Tuesday afternoon, October 14, at four o'clock, with appropriate exercises to which all are invited. The selectmen, acting as executive committee of this association, have issued invitations to selectmen of the adjoining towns to be present at these exercises and to a dinner in the Congregational church dining room in the evening, followed by a social hour afterwards. Those interested in the Memorial Park project have worked hard to make an attractive spot for the boulder tablet. More than fifty memorial trees have been set out, contributed by citizens of the town. The land has been graded and the foundation for the boulder put in, all labor being freely contributed by the workmen. Next week a list of those who have given time, labor and money to this will be printed in connection of the report of the exercises on Tuesday. One feature of the day will be the cementing into the foundations of the boulder a steel pocket containing treasures of today for the benefit of later generations. Anyone having anything suitable to place in this box please leave at the selectmen's office.

Academy Loses Opening Game

Last Saturday at Ipswich the Academy football team, composed of eleven men playing their first football game were defeated by the Manning High school by the score of 19 to 0. The real cause of the defeat was the lack of experience, and at the start nervousness overcame them and Manning scored after five minutes of play. They scored twice more in the second period, making all their points at the first half. In the second half Hampton held and Ipswich failed to score.
