"Then Hoppertown became Ho-Ho-Kus, the spelling and capitalization intended to set it apart from the township which remained Hohokus. The councilmen thought the capitalization and spelling gave the borough that touch of individualism of which we Americans are so proud. Residents of Ho-ho-kus still hold to that belief.... Hail to the Ho-Ho-Kusite, all 925 of her united population, who are willing to battle the New Deal Administration, the State Government and the Motion Picture industry, in pursuit of an opinion they hold to be right."
