An anonymous letter was received by the selectmen advocating the stopping of the Charleston in local dance halls, during the week. The selectmen are going into the matter and at a future time may find it necessary to stop the dance except in halls which have a sound foundation, as it is said that the dance rocks the buildings and makes them unsafe.
