The Ollrlte Corporation Flans for a Building Whloh Is Designed to be the Biggest and Most Artistic of Its Kind Hereabouts. The Ollrlte corporation of Red Bank has had plans drawn for a large and attractive automobile serv- ice station to be built at the nortri- eaat corner of Broad street and Rum- son drive at Red Bank. The land tvas bought by the Ollrlte company a >hort time ago from the Lakeside development company. It is expected that the contract will be awarded this week. The plans were drawn by D. Wentworth Wright of Maplewood, who Is A specialist in designing this type of buildings. The new building, Including tho land which was bought as a location for It, will represent an investment of $30,000. It will be of the old Eng- lish type of architecture. It will be sixty feet long. The width will vary, Iho avetrage width being thirty feot. The building will be enclosed with English 1 stucco, with half timber wbrk and with a massive slato roof tf variegated colors. In keeping with Did English architecture, tho exterior view will not bel uniform In appear- ance but will vary. Tho roof will ' also be uneven In appearance. The slate roof shingles will vary In thick- ness, as well'as In colors. Tho slate shingles will be from one inch to one-quarter of an Inch in thickness. The building will bo ot the Bupcr- servlce type, with four driveways. The main driveway will be forty feet wide. There will be one covered driveway. The building and grounds will be lighted with flood lights. This form of illumination Is so named be- cause It throws a flood of light over a large area. There will bo seven gasoline pumps and they will be op- erated by continuous flow electric meter pumps. The building will be provided with the most up-to-date facilities for free air service, for washing cars, for chassis lubrication and for crank caBe service. The electric pumps for putting air In tires are fashioned something like weighing scales. Each pump is HO adjusted that It ascertains the amount of air required to fill a tire. There Is a dial on each pump and the hand on this dial points to the num- ber of pounds of air required. When the requisite amount has been pumped tho pump automatically shuts off. Rest rooms and sanitary Improve- ments for patrons will be provided. A great deal of landscapa work will bo done, to beautify the grounds. There will be flowerB, shrubbery and trees. Around two sides of the ground* will fe« teBSfiM English pole fence with 100 or more crimson ram- bler vlnta growing over it. It is said that the new station wlU be the larg- est In the county. It Is expected to have It completed In May. The Ollrlto corporation is building a large service station at the corner of Sixth avenue and Main street at Asbury Park. This plant will be di- vided into two buildings and It will he of a different type from that at Red Bank. One building will.bo used for washing and greasing cars and for crank case service. The new plant Is being constructed In a sec- tion of high-priced business land and the outlay represents an investment of $60,000. The service station will be finished next month. Originally the Ollrlto corporation was the Red Bank oil company. It was organized In 1923, and in 1020 It was Incorporated under Its prosont name. The officers oro Frank V. Bakeman president, Arthur C. Ryer- son vice president, Leon Reussllle secretary and Carl Uhl treasurer. The corporation now has a chain of seven automobile service stations and with the two now ones it will have nine. The stations now being oper- ated are at Red Bank, Long Branch, Freehold, Manasquan, Lakowood, Toms River and Pinowald. Besides being In tho service station business the corporation engages In two other lines. It has a motor oil compounding plant at Lakewood where Ollrltd motor oil is mixed. The company does a retail business In this oil In a territory extending from Perth Amboy to Cape May. Its other line of business'Is that t' acting as distributor of Tidewater oil products from Toms River to Atlantic City. "^ » m. Firemen to Have a Ball.

A B1KETHIRTYYEARS0LD. BOBEIIT C. HANCE RIDES AN OLD-TIME WHEEL. Bed Bank Mall Carrier Is Still Using his Old Cbalnleis Bicycle—He Goes to and from His Work on It Every Day. Robert C. Hance of Riverside avenue, one of Red Bank's oldest mail carriers, is riding about town on his off duty hours on a Columbia chalnlesB blcyclo which he claims has been In constant use for over thirty years. Ho bought the bicycle from -Georgo Hanee Patterson in 1898. When Frank C. Storck of Broad Btreet gave up the bicycle selling and repairing department of his business several years ago Mr. Unncc bought a Columbia chalnleBB wheel from him In order to have repair partB for tho wheol which ho bought from Mr. Patterson. The bicycle l» in excellent condi- tion and Mr.. Hance says that It servos his purpose Just as well as if ho were riding a bicycle of the very latest model. When chalnlesB wheels for men wcro first put on tho market as tho last word in "Safety" bicycles many Red Bankers bought them. They permitted the riders to oporato their bicycles without wearing pants guards and it eliminated the possi- bility of tho trousor legs getting caught in tho chains or gears when the wheels were ridden. A few years later tho chalnless bicycles were discarded by tho ma- jority of bicycle riders, Tho open- gcared wheel permitted the frequent shifting of tho gears to give greater power. BOAT WORKS ARE BUSY. THIS YEAH TO BE AN ACTIVE ONE ON BIVER. Boats Are Now Being Overhauled for an Early Opening* of Season— Outboard Motor Boat Owners Al- ready Out with Their Craft. The coming yachting season on the river here promises to be tha most active In many years according to present Indications. Although the season does not formally open until Decoration day the boat works hero have their forces hard at work of boat overhauling under way. In addition to the expert work done at tho ehlp yards there are many amateur boat owners who are do- ing their own work getting their boats ready for the water. A Register representative In a casual walk along the water front a few days ago counted BG moorings already set In for motor boats as* well as several stakes to which sail- boats will b» \leu. In addition to these places of safety the Monmouth boat club has put out Us large pon- toon float and a number of sectional docks which were taken up last fall will bo reset within the next few weeks. The mild winter has caused the water to bo much warmer than us- ual at this time of tho year and boat owners are hurryng to get their boats overboard. Pierre A. Proal's Red Bank yacht works Is working full time on build- Ing new cruisers and refitting and overhauling other craft. Several cruisers have already been put in the water, which Is somewhat earlier than usual. At Frank P. Dlckman's boat works at the foot of Wharf avenue and at Captain Charles P. Irwln's yard and yacht basin east of the old steam- boat dock there la much activity. Both shipyards aro filled with boats which will go through the annual reconditioning in time for early season use. Mr; Dickman has spent much tlmo this winter building row- boats and he anticipates a very busy season in tho rowboat renting business. Andrew' S. White's yard at the foot of Maplo avenuo has enough work ahead to keep him busy mudh of the spring. Mr. White specializes In bulkhead work and ho has sev- eral bulkheads to build and repair. The samo hustlb as scon at the Red Batik boat yards Is in evidence at the VanBlcrck ship yard at Fair Haven. The popularity of tho outboard motor In this section also helps to bring about an earlier season. Al- ready many outboard motor owners havo had their boats out for trial spins. ri BIG STOCK OF HORSES. ' ricnty of Good Acclimated Stock at the Ely Stables at Holmdel.

The annual feature of awarding the season's Ice yacht trophies at the club banquet was an Interesting part of tho program. The toastmsjter gave a short history of the season's activities and then presented tha trophies. The Harold S. Allen prize for the boat winning the flrBt race of the season went to Henry Apple- gate, whose yacht Whim took the first race. Tho Bterllng silver plate, the sea- son's point prize donated by William W. Vaughn, was awarded to George Gilllg and George Ruppert, whose yacht Pirate won the most points during the season. The Pirate aloo won the Commodore's race and was awarded a silver cup donated by Commodore James B. Weaver. Co'ni- modore Weaver also presented 1 sil- ver cup to John S.

The pupils of Fair View attend the River Plaza school and the East Keansburg pupils attend the Port Monmouth school. Both of these schoolhouses are overcrowded. In the event that the voters favor the $10,500 appropriation next Tuesday new schoolhouses will be started within a short time at Fair View and River Plaza, These two proposed nchoolhouses comprise only part of the building program of the board of education. A large addition to the township high school building at Leonardo and an addition to the River Plaza school- house will be undertaken.

Recently a sur- vey of the schools of the township was made by experts of tho state board of education, and the new schoolhouses at Fair View and East Keansburg are included |n thi recommendations made by the ex- perts. The cost of buying tha land al Fair View and East Keansburg will probably be met by a bond Issue. This Issue can be paid in installments ex- tending over forty years. With th payments spread over such a long period tho effect on taxation would be small. name of the yacht winning the com- modore's race each season is to tie ilk- scribed thereon.
