“Twenty-nine WPA workers started today to rid the dry bed of old Morris Canal of rag weed, poison ivy and sumac, a $3,750 project for relief of hay fever victims. The workers will clear five miles of winding stream bed from the Belleville-Bloomfield line to the Clifton-Bloomfield line. Thirty acres of weeds will be removed.” (Evening News)
