CLOSED WEDNESDAY considerable talk in town about closing the old Cottage Hospital and joining medical facilities with the Grafton County Farm on RoUte 10 in N. Haverhill. He said no way. So, when nurses and hospital workers hosted a huge meeting in the Community Center, he "opened my big mouth, again" and ended up as president of the Cottage Hospital Trustees, a job he held for nearly 20 years. He hired a Philadelphia fundraising outfit for $12,000 ("my head was really on the block, now" Walker chided. "It had to work, or I was in big trouble.") and they gave the hospital group 12 solid weeks of fundraising. And it worked. People responded well from both sides of the river and funds were obtained and pledged for a new building at a different location. July 3, 1960 was a big day for Walker. They dedicated the new hospital and everyone came to see it including Gay. Powell and a host of other well knowns. "People realized that people around here really support their fine hospital" Walker said. "And they said it could never be done." So, with that victory and a building standing on the hill, he realized one day that more rooms were needed so they hired another flock of fun- vttt'""age clraisers from Massachusetts and opened the new wing in 1969, Cheese Shop Since then he has been the state Cancer fund chairman, was given a testimonial dinner for his involvement with .\\; Has a Great scouting (oh yes, he was a scout for many years, too) and is actively involved with his .'

Two brid00es need help WOODSVILLE-- Town Road Agent James Boucher reviewed with Haverhill Selectmen this week results of a recent inspection of some of the towns' bridges. Selectmen decided to post the two most critical bridges as the state suggests and to post the others at a later date. The inspection was con- ducted by New Hampshire Public Works Department Engineer Paul A. Laflam, who concluded Page Roads Bridge was to be posted for passenger cars and the bridge on the Route 116 side of French Pond Road was to be posted for 12 ton and under vehicles. The other bridges included in the report were on Cometary road, Smith street, Mill street, the bridge on Route 135, and the Jeffers Hill road. Boucher indicated there was a possibility of the need for upgrading some of these bridges next summer. Richard L. Clifford, USMC Clifford promoted to Corporal N. HAVERHILL-- Lance Corporal Richard L.
