Somers Flower Show

Roused Much Interest

The Flower Show held on August

27 at the Town Hall in Somers was an

unqualified success, and the Garden

Club finds it difficult to express its

appreciation and thanks to all who

took part.

The exhibits were all grown by ama­

teurs and lovers of beauty, and full

advantage was taken of the opportu­

nity to show favorite flowers and colors

In the most favorable combinations,

and to see what one'6 neighbors offer­

ed. Many a suggestion of arrangement

and grouping which one had not

thought of made it quite exciting, and

in all the "classes" there was a spirit

of mild rivalry but above all of friend­

ly enjoyment. Many said: "This is very

fine for a small exhibit; let's do it an­

other year. I'm already thinking of

what I might have sent today, and

hope to have next year!"

To the chairman of the Flower Show

Committee, Mrs. H. C. Wylie, who has

managed it so ably, and her hard­

working, devoted aides one can not

speak too gratefully;—It was a large

responsibility executed tastefully and


No criticism was heard of the judges'

decisions, only gratification at the lit­

tle explanations such as "Too many

colors," "stems too short!" etc., which

helped one to understand the reasoning

and standards which were used. The

judges task is not an easy one, but let

us thank you, oh; kindly judges, with

sincere appreciation of your services.

The committee was surprised and al­

most overwhelmed by offers of prizes,

and there was many a delighted 'thank

you" from the winners of blue rib­

bons for theirs. Besides private dona­

tions the following were very generous

in presenting appropriate gifts: Ama-

walk Nursery, Lincolndale Nursery,

Pierson Nursery, Twin Pines, W. E.

Marshall and Stump & Walter.

The winners of blue ribbons were

Miss Esther Allen, Mrs. O. G. Ditmars,

Mr. Robert Dunn, Mr. John Karnes,

Miss C E. Fellows. Mrs. George

Holmes, Mrs. J. H. Hughes, Miss Ruth

Jeffrey. Mrs. James Marshall, Mrs.

George J. Nayesky, Mrs. North Mc­

Lean. Mrs. W. B. Mead, Mrs. Mullen,

Miss Arlene Parker, Mrs George Ray,

Mrs. Edward Tatham, Mrs. A. B. Tib-

bets, Mr. Voislawskie, Mrs. Waldo

Walker, Mrs. N. A. White.

The publicity given by local papers

is gratefully acknowledged

Mrs. William E. Smith.

On Tuesday morning, August 30, 1932,

the death of Mrs. Eva Virginia Wordcn

Smith, wife of Mr. William E. Smith,

of Brewster, occurred at Danbury Hos­

pital where she had been a patient for

three weeks recovering from a broken

arm. News of her death, which was

very sudden, due to cerebral hemorrh­

age, was a great shock to her husband

and the many friends who had visited

her and noted her recovery from the

injury to her arm. Mrs. Smith was in

the '8th year of her age.

Mrs. Smith was the daughter of the

late Hiram and Susan Adams Wor­

erly, officiating. In 1883 Mr. and Mrs.

Smith came to reside in Brewster and

their home on Prospect street Is known

to many people for the hospitality ex­

tended by Mr. and Mrs. Smith and their

daughter, Elizabeth, for almost fifty


It was on the occasion of the fiftieth

wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs.

Smith that Mr. E. D. Stannard made

a few felicitous remarks as spokesman

for the guests of the evening and con­

cluded with "Mr and Mrs. Smith have

something better than gold; they have

the love and esteem of a wide circle of

friends." What a fine tribute to be re­

membered as a friend. It is as a friend

that Mrs. Smith will long be remem­

bered. How kind she was in remember­

ing the sick or the needy few realize,

but many people knew her enthusiasm

and Interest in social gatherings. She

loved to be among people who were

enjoying themselves and liked to have

young people about her as well as her

contemporaries. She showed great cour­

age in bearing the sorrow of the loss

of her daughter, Elizabeth, who died

November 6, 1031, and her efforts to

keep in good spirits were appreciated

by all who were closely associated with

band, William E. Smith, her brother,

Money, Not Laundry

Sought by Robbers

While Sam Lee. popular proprietor

of -he Sing Lee Laundry on Progress

street, was enjoying a movie in the

Cameo last Sunday evening, some

smart young thieves who evidently

knew the "layout" and how to climb

a half inch iron pipe entered his place

of business through a window some

twenty feet from the ground on the

south side of the building.

When Sam returned to his shop the

interior looked like a Chinese puzzle.

At first he thought someone had lost

their laundry ticket and after a futile

searcn from pocket to pocket and back

to pocket again they decided that in

order to get a clean shirt for Mon­

day they would have to break their

way into the shop. But, no this was not

the case. What they wanted was cold

cash and after turning everything in

the place either bottomside up or up-

sidedown they managed to scrape up

about $3.88.

Sam reported the loss to Officer East­

wood, who made a thorough investiga­

tion and from reports the search for

the thieves is well within the village

limits. This is the second attempt that

has been made to clean Sam, but h"

continues to clean clothes in his usual

good spirits—no tickle, no. washie, but

always a smilie.

Children Present

Garden Program


Plays and Dances Presented by Young

People In Mrs. Warren's Garden En­

tertain an Appreciative Audience.

Brewster Garden Club Serves Tea.

On Tuesday afternoon, all the ele­

ments seemed to combine to give the

desired background and atmosphere for

the program arranged by the Brewster

Garden Club to be carried out in Mrs.

Luther Warren's garden on Turk Hill.

More than a hundred people were seat­

ed in the natural ampitheatre on the

lawn under shade trees when the music

from a hidden phonograph signaled the

appearance of Miss Mary Kane in a

garden dance, a delightful prelude for

the one act play, Pandora, from Che

Greek myth. Mrs. Chester Beach, play­

wright and director, had a very re­

sponsive cast of children who spoke

their lines clearly and entered into

their parts with sweet sincerity. Cos­

tumes after the Greek design were

worn by each player.

Phyllis Rahlson, as Hermes, the mes­

senger of the gods, was first to appear;

then came Arlene Reed, as Epimetheus.

a young boy; Norma Beal, Winifred

Churchill and Faith Vigurs as Leand-

er. Daphne and Chloe, other children;

Jane Richie, as Pandora and June

Jenkins, as Hope. The wonderful chest

delivered by Hermes was the subject

of the dialogue carried on cheifly by

Pandora and Epimetheus until the op­

ening of the chest finally revealed

Hope. Little June made an appeal to

each heart in the audience as she kiss­

ed the children who released her from

the chest.

Miss Rose Davison danced very

gracefully to an etude. She seemed to

enjoy the dance as much as the audi­

ence and gave a very pleasing encore.

In Vertumnus and Pomona, a play

whose characters are taken from Ro­

man mythology the scene was in the

garden of Pomona, a young mymph,

charmingly played by Marjorie Rahl­

son. Constance Johnson, as Antinoe, a

mymph, companion to Pomona, and

Dorothy Foster, as Vertumnus, the god

of Spring blossoms and ripening fruit,

completed the cast of this delightful


At the conclusion of the program

Mrs. L. S. Bayliss, president of the

Brewster Garden Club, very graciously

expressed thanks to the many people

who had contributed to the success of

the entertainment and announced that

tea would be served in the garden

house. There Mrs. Norborne P. Gall­

ing poured tea, while Mrs. Warren,

Miss Edith Warren and Mr. Robert

Warren served fruit punch, and oth­

er ladies of the club passed sandwiches

and cakes. The company enjoyed very

much strolling in the garden and ex­

changing bits of conversation.


Argonne's corps of convention rep­

resentatives returned last Saturday

with various and interesting happen­

ings of the three days spent in Brook­

lyn and strange as it may seem'none

lost their way among Brooklyn's net

work of streets.

All of Putnam's delegation were

quartered in the St. George and when

Assemblyman Stephens and County

Judge Bailey sent out a chow call for

dinner on the St. George roof every­

one answered "at the double." It was

a real treat for the delegates and we

dare say Mai and Jim enjoyed being

hosts to such a congenial crowd where

they could be themselves without being

censured for having a good time.

In the parade there were 16 sons of

Putnam in line and as many more who

watched from the side lines.

Commander Belcher of Putnam and

all bis delegates lined up for Dr.

Charles J. Lawrence of Brooklyn, for

State Commander and the doctor won

quite easily.

Commander Blaney of Argonne and

the rest of the Putnam delegates were

in favor of Chauncey Fish for chair­

man of the Ninth District.

The cash bonus fight brought forth

plenty of excitement on the convention

floor and when the smoke of battle

had cleared away those in favor of an

Immediate payment of the bonus won

against strong opposition; so when the

New York State delegates go to the

National Convention in Portland, Ore­

gon, they go instructed to vote for the

cash bonus, which again will be the

leading issue at this convention.

The party from Brewster included:

Hon. D. Mallory Stephens, W. B. Town­

er, Mrs. Harold Beal, Com. Blaney.

Harold Beal, Mrs Harold Jackson,

Daniel Brandon. Archie Penny, Samuel

Ledley, Ted Schaefer, Theodore Turn-


Mrs. Howard Tuttle, Mr. and Mrs.

Karl K. Kernick and Miss Helen Darl­

ing set out early this morning for

Whitesvllle for a visit with Mr. and

Mrs. Cyrus Travis.



The marriage of Miss Josephine

Hopkins and Mr. Murray Wiltse took

place, August 19, 1932, at Cazenovia,

N*. Y.

Mr. Wiltse, the son of Mrs. Sara

Wiltse and the late Dr. James Wiltse,

is well known to Brewster where the

Wiltse family made their home for

several years. The congratulations and

best wishes of friends are going for­

ward to 365 Earl Avenue, Oneida, N.

Y., where Mr. and rMs. Wiltse are now

at home.

Green-Lewis. -

The marriage of Florence Pauline

Lewis, daughter of Henry Lewis, to

Mr. Emmett Green, both of Brewster,

took place in St. Lawrence church on

Thursday morning, Sept. 1, 1932. The

Rev. Jeremiah J. Quill officiated.

After the wedding ceremony Mrs.

Carl Johnson, the bride's aunt, enter­

tained the Immediate families at a

wedding breakfast. At noon the young

couple dashed away in an auto head­

ed south for Atlantic City and Phila­

delphia. When they return their home

will be in the Johnson apartment on

East Main street.

noon so this is your last chance to call


On Wednesday afternoon a party of

ladles from Carmel Country Club and

Gipsy Trail Club were entertained at a

bridge tea at Kishawana Country Club.

The eclipse was most interesting from

that vantage point and all enjoyed

viewing the spectacle through different

sorts of glass and film. Mrs. Raymond

Weeks, of White Plains, who came with

a party of friends'to view the eclipse,

was welcomed by the other star gaz­

ers. Tea was served after the bridge

and prizes were won by Mrs. Garbe,

Mrs. Serrill, Mrs. Livingston, Mrs.

Dounce and Mrs. Merritt.

Low voltage over the electric lines in

the Kishawana area is believed to have

caused by burning out of both the

motors that supply the club with wat­

er. This of all times in the season is

the worst to get a "break" that means

returning home in sweaty clothes. Geo.

Juengst was "Johnny on the spot" in

repairing the spring motor and every­

one hopes that the lake motor will be

running before Saturday noon. At the

time the low voltage was discovered

another condition was also found in

connection with the wiring that leads

many to believe and some are certain,

that the meter on the lake pump was

running constantly whether the switch

was on or not; so for the past nine

years Kishawana has been getting an

extra kick in its electric bills. An ex­

planation of the investigation will be

given at the Board meeting this ev­

ening. The water in the spring is only

sufficient to supply the club with cook­

ing and drinking water.

Another one of those Scotch Four­

somes is on the program for tomorrow

afternoon. The drawing will be held at

2 p.m. and everyone is urgently re­

quested to be at the club as near 2 as

possible. If after reading this notice

you can think to call Mac and tell him

that you will enter and about what

time you will arrive at the club you

will be doing everyone concerned a

great favor. All contestants in Satur­

day's match will be requested to sign

up lor another Scotch Foursome on

Labor Day morning. j

Last week end James J. Hopper,

alias "Illegitimate Joe," won the box

of balls with a net 69 and turned in a

flashy gross 79 to do it. George Juengst

was second. Two ties were played off

from previous Scotch Foursome matches

one a week ago between Dr. Scofleld-

Ives combine and Hopper-Greene was

won by the former pair. Though the

doctor was ill at the time he held up

his end with his younger partner. Last

week end the Dr. R\chie-Hopkins com­

bination lost to the Donley-E. Addis


Tuesday, Sept. 6, will be Kishawana

beef and after an hour's rest will play

another 18 holes which will be follow­

ed by the awarding of prizes to all

who enter, low net getting first choice.

affair which has already started ton­

gues wagging as to who will win. Sim­

eon Brady, Jr., of Brewster, has been

give nthe biggest handicap and for that

reason many Brewster horsemen be­

lieve his chances of winning the silver

cup are better than an even money

bet and Wittenberg who is- also-4n the

if anybody has nerve enough to just

mention real money.

Crandell Leads

Carmel Drivers

(by BUI Spain)

Henry Crandell, of Carmel, the

trainer for the W. F. Vail stable, with

half the trotting season over is lead­

ing the Carmel race drivers this year.

Mr. Crandell has so far driven this

season at the local track seven win­

ners, two thirds, and one second, giving

him a percentage of 70.

Crandell's perfection is driving colts.

Young horses seem to go well for him.

His pride is the two year old Worthy

Lassie, whom he recently drove to vic­

tory at the Middletown Pair. Worthy

Lassie won several races at the Carmel

track earlier in the season.

Plan New Theatre In

Town Hall, Brewster

Managers 0*Neil and Marasco of the

Cameo Theatre have made application

to the Town Board of Southeast to

lease the part of the Town Hall used

as a theatre. Their plan, if they can

obtain a lease, is to refurnish and re­

decorate the theatre in a thoroughly

up-to-date fashion, buying comfortable

seats, fine carpet and installing lights

and other decorations to make the

stage attractive.

Probably the majority of taxpayers

are hoping this plan may be carried

out, for the Town Hall in Its present

condition is not an object of commu­

nity pride or interest, making little re­

turn on the investment. Of course the

"lower hall" which serves in turn danc­

ers, card players, suppers, voters and

litigants in justice court, would not

be involved in the plan for a new thea­

tre, so it is quite unlikely the taxpay­

ers would be in any way inconvenienc­

ed. On the contrary the taxpayers

should benefit, for Messrs. O'Neil and

Marasco are willing to pay a reason­

able rent. }

The clubs or,dramatic societies who

may wish to use the theatre for bene­

fit i>erformances will fund Messrs.

O'Neil and M:\rasco ready to accommo­

date them, other points of Interest

may arise before the next meeting of

the Town Board. Those who have com­

mented on the plan consider it, a

splendid opportunity for the Town to

improve its property in a most desir­

able way. to make an asset of a lia­


What can be done with the Town

Hall? may be answered and speedily

I. O. O. F. Clears

$50 On Show

With tickets, selling as low as forty

cents and the weather eighty plus in

the shade and still higher in the Town

Hall, last week Thursday and Friday

evening, the net result of "Aren't We

All." was remarkable at $50.

Certainly and of course it does seem

like a lot of trouble for the amount

earned considering the temperature of

back stage which can only be judged

by the beads of perspiration on Harry

Thorp's forehead and the frequent

rubbing of Edward Hancock's brow, two

of the gentlemen who worked hard for

the fifty bucks, both on and off the


The show did one thing if nothing

else and that was another opportunity

for those of different races and creeds

to enjoy working together.

Having taken a part in the show we

are going to say it was good anyway.

We know for an actual fact that Tom

Toy who took the lead started his

make-up at 6:30, finished a half hour

later and then assisted in making up

any kind of character that stood still

long enough for him to powder and

paint. Miss Taylor, the coach, who

hailed from Athol, Mass., was a mere

youngster In her chosen career, but

with Leonard Ryan, Marion Fenaugh-

ty, Minnie Purdy, Mrs. Jack McDon­

ald and a whole cast of former B. H. S.

dramatic players she was able to re­

turn with a fair week's salary and

show her company that she could make

a dollar in the hottest, most ill ven­

tilated town hall in New England.

Of the two nights, Thursday was hot­

ter by, we were going to say degrees,

but if you were close enough to see the

perspiration—sweat come through a

layer of make-up paste on Leonard

Ryan's face you can bet it was hotter

than oh we'll say the Main street

of Danbury on a hot day. Notwith­

standing the heat there was an audi­

ence of more than two hundred and

on the second night approximately

three hundred saw the performance.

One of the high lights of the show

was the girls chorus, dressed in mod­

est costumes. Their voices were strong,

full of pep and their dance steps show­

ed marked sense of grace and rhythm,

Those who accepted their parts and

did their best to help the show along

are as follows:

Thomas Toy, Marion Fenaughty,

Minnie Purdy, Richard Harmon, Earle

Blockley, Leonard Ryan. Charles

Strang, Robert Frost, Gladys McDon­

ald, George McCall and Emerson Addis.

Others appearing in skits were: W. E.

Smith, Gerard Mergardt. John Utter,

George Enright, George Strand, Ever­

ett LaMere. C. A. Hopkins, B. J. H.

in Historic Church Brings Many Old

Friends Together. Fanny Crosby's

Memory was Honored by Singing of

Her Hymns.

On Sunday, August 28, the Old

Southeast church was visited by a large

number of people who find special en­

joyment In the annual pilgrimage to

this historic edifice. It is estimated that

500 persons were present. Those who

were unable to enter the church gath­

ered near the windows and so enjoyed

much of the service. The life and work

of Fanny Crosby were presented by

Arthur Billings Hunt, whose singing

has become well known through the

radio. Mr. Hunt played his own accom­

paniment. The program follow:


Invocation—Rev. Melvin J. Joachim

Rev. Benjamin H. Everitt presided.

This was the eighth annual home

coming service held in this church,

which was erected in 1793, located on

the Brewster-Patterson road five miles

from Brewster village. The hymns in

this service were written by Fanny

Crosby, who was born in Southeast

Parish on March 24. 1820. The house

in which she was born, little changed,

is still standing on the Fogglngtown

road, north of the church.

Lesson for September 4


GOLDEN TEXT—Do not drink wine

of the congregation, leat ye die:

it shall be a statute for ever throughout

your generation*.





a Warning.


TOPIC—Why Obey the Law?


IC—Observing and Enforcing Law.

I. Israel, the Favored Nation (vv.


This nation's unique relation to

God is presented under the figure of

a vineyard. Observe:

1. God's peculiar favor (w. 1, 2).

God did for this nation what be did

for no other nation in tbe history

of tbe world. He fenced it when be

assigned the boundaries of Israel's

inheritance. (Num. 84:1-18.) He gathered

eut the stones when the Canaanltes

were exterminated. The choicest

vine planted therein was the Israelitish

nation which had gone through

the disciplinary process in Egyptian

bondage. He built a tower In it when

under David Jerusalem was made Its

capital city.

2. The obligation of tbe nation

(v. 2). The purpose of a vineyard is

to bring forth grapes. The purpose

of God in selecting and blessing the

Israelitisb nation was that it might

bring forth fruit to his glory.

8. It bore only wild grapes (v. 4).

Instead of sweet, luscious grapes, they

bore grapes of a sour and unwholesome

kind. How aptly this symbolises

Israel's life!

4. The desolation of tbe vineyard

(w. 5-7). Since all efforts bad been

wasted, the owner of the vineyard

now resolved to abandon it He purposed

to take away the fences and

leave It exposed to wild beasts, to be

wasted and devoured by them.

II. The Sins Which Brought Ruin

to Israel (w. 8-23).

Tbe causes of tills destruction are

presented under six woes, each woe

pronounced against a particular sin:

L Monopoly and oppression of the

poor (w. 8-10). The crime against

which the first woe is directed hi that

of avaricious grasping after property

which leads to the accumulation of

wealth in the hands of the few. "Joining

house to bouse and laying field to

field" means the sin of tbe greedy

monopolist who buys up tbe bind on

every side and ejects tbe small bind

holder. In tbe agricultural district

it takes tbe form of the "bind grabber."

In the commercial centers it

takes tbe form of tbe big man crushing

out tbe small ones. This state of

affairs met God's judgment In Judea,

as seen in vv. 0 und 10, and one day

it shall do likewise in America.

2. Dissipation (vv. 11-17). Tbe sin

here denounced is drunkenness. Several

features are connected with this

one sin:

u. Drinking made the life business

of some (v. 11). Tbey got up early

and continued until late at night

b. Tbe effort to give then* wicked

business a show of refinement (v. 12).

This is why pleasing music Is heard

In dens of infamy over our bind.

e. Blindness to God's warnings and

judgments (v. 12). Their drinking and

dissipation rendered them insensible

to tbe dealings of Providence.

d. God's judgments for such sin

(vv. 13-17). They went into captivity.

Tbe immediate cause assigned was

ignorance, but it was a willful ignorance

for which they were held

responsible. There was a great mortality

among those who drank (v. 14).

"Hell hath enlarged herself." The

records everywhere show a much

higher death rate among drinking men.

Drinking degrades all classes (v. 15).

& Unbelief (vv. 18. 10). This woe

Is directed aguinst the sinner who

presumptuously plunges Into vice. He

persists in iniquity and scoffs at judgment

This is peculiarly common

among those who go about winedrinking

as a business.

4. Moral confusion (v. 20). This

woe is pronounced against those who

try to adjust moral conditions to suit

their sinful appetites.

5. Conceit (v. 21). The fifth woe

is pronounced against the sin of selfconceit

which holds a false estimate

of human wisdom and acts without

reference to God.

6. Perversion of Justice (w. 22,

28). Tbe sixth woe la pronounced

against unjust judges.

III. God's Treatment of Israel for

Their Sins (vv. 24-80).

1. He stretched out bis hand in

anger against them (vv. 24, 25).

2. Chastised by tbe nations (vv.

20-30). God gave tbe signal and

issued the cull for the nations to

chastise Israel.

Scientist, on Sunday, September 4.

The Golden Text is from Isaiah 64:8:

"Now, O Lord, thou art our father; we

are the clay, and thour our potter; and

we all are the work of thy hand."

Among the citations which comprise

the Lesson-Sermon is the following

from the Bible: "The Spirit of God

hath made me, and the breath of the

Almighty hath given me life." (Job

33:4). The Lesson-Sermon also includes

the following from the textzook

of Christian Science, "Science and

Health with Key to the Scriptures," by

Mary Baker Eddy: "The Scriptures Inform

us that man is made in the image

and likeness of God. Matter is not that

likeness. The likeness of Spirit cannot

be so unlike Spirit. Man is spiritual

and perfect; and because he is spiritual

and perfect, he must be so understood

in Christian Science." (p. 475).

Designers Are in a Mood for Capes


OT to be cape-conscious is not to

N know fashion as Is at this very moment

and as it will be this comlDg fall

and winter. Everything from suits to

evening gowns is being caped in one

way or another. If the cape is not an

actual part of the dress, as it is in so

many instances, then it is sure to be

one of those cunning little separate

affairs made of velvet or silk or lace,

or "what have you," for designers are

conjuring these graceful shoulder out

of most any medium.

These versatile capes are adding a

genuine note of Interest to the new

modes for they offer unlimited possibilities

in the field of design. Whether

it be for the sports outfit or the

afternoon costume or for wear during

the formal evening hour the cape motif

is made to lend Itself to the mood

and the occasion.

At all evening galas In Paris capes

galore are to be seen, some half-jacket

and some half-scarf and others Just

capes pure and simple. And then

there's Hollywood, our own mecca toward

which all eyes turn to see fashions

at their best There Is no doubt

about the reign of the cape vogue in

that style center. Most any day you

are apt to meet pretty Rochelle Hudson,

she of the smiling countenance

who is waving such a joyous salute In

the picture, strolling on the boulevard

in her youthful looking three-piece costume,

with Its Jaunty little cape and

its printed blouse, Its colorful belt

and tie.

And there's Julia Hayden a bit further

for It's no trick at all to make one out

of a yard or so of silk.

At fashionable midnight gatherings

one sees such beguiling capes as these

Fabrics are the things that make a

strong appeal to the fall styles. There

seems to have been a concerted effort

to give them a quality value. In addition

there is an eutertuWilng topsyturvydom

about them—even more exaggerated

than it was In spring. Wools

look like crepes, and crepes like wools,

while velvets have so changed their

complexion as to be barely recognizable.

Bagbeera velvet rich and deep

In tone and having practically no pile,

Is being widely used. By contrast

there is a new velvet with a heavy

pile that is pressed In such manner

that it looks like a bunny's fur. Not

so long ago we began to hear the

word "croquignol" (a kind of small

curly cuke) used to connection with

crepes. It described then- crinkly surface.

This season satins are going

"croquignol." In fact there are all

sorts of new crinkles and wrinkles to

crepes, satins and velvets; crinkled

velvet Is a luscious thing to behold.

Perfumed Hosiery New

Delight for Madame

Perfumed Hosiery is the newest

thing offered milady. And those scented

with narcissus are the favorites.

The Commerce department reported

that in a recent test four pairs of hose

were shown to 20 women—one Just as

it came from the factory, and three

others scented very faintly.

The perfume was so faint that only

6 per cent consciously noticed it, but

60 per cent said they liked the narcissus

pair best. Twenty-four per

cent chose the pair perfumed with a

fruit mixture; 18 per cent picked those

scented with sachet.

Co*U With Scarfs

Some of the new coats are sold

with two scarfs—one to plain color

to match the coat, the other in dots

or figures. The idea is good.

Offers Credit Plan For

New England Farmers

Announcement was-made by Representative

Robert L. Bacon that a petition

is in process of formulation for

submission to the Reconstruction France

Corporation providing for the

creation of a Regional Agriculture

Credit Corporation In the First Federal

Land Bank District. This statement

was made following conversation had

by W. Kingsland Macy and Representative

Bacon with members of the Reconstruction

Finance Corporation, to

whom they emphasize the need, particularly

in New York State, of such a

farm credit corporation.

State Commissioner of Agriculture

and Markets Charles H. Baldwin, after

conference with Representative Bacon,

made the following statement as to the

origin and purpose of the plan:

"This movement inaugurated by Representative

Bacon offers a tremendous

potential value to farmers throughout

the First Land Bank District, and particularly

to New York State. Under the

proposed set-up the Regional Agricultural

Credit Corporation would be

created with a capital of not less than

$3,000,000, to be subscribed entirely by

the Reconstruction Finance Corporation.

This Regional Corporation, under

the provisions of the act, would be

authorized to make loans and advances

to farmers throughout the district for

agricultural purposes, including the

orderly marketing of their produce and

the extension of necessary credit facilities

therefor. Such Agricultural Credit

Corporations are already to process of

organization to eight of the Land Bank

Districts, and definitely projected to

two others, leaving out so far only two,

of which the New York District is one.

"This set-up would provide an immediate

accessibility to agricultural

Breeds Chickens

To Resist Typhoid

Six year's selection and breeding of

chickens that are resistant to fowl typhoid

has reduced the percentage of

dead chicks, inoculated with the disease

germs, from 39.8 per cent to the

first generation down to 9.4 per cent

to the fifth generation, while the losses

to non-resistant flocks used for comparison

ranged from 93.2 per cent down

to 85 per cent to the same number of

years and generations, W. V. Lambert

of Iowa State College reported to the

credit funds, which if available before

the peak of the crop movement, will

stave off serious losses to farmers to

various lines of production. New York

State alone, to this district, which also

includes all the New England States

and New Jersey, ranks fifth to the farm

value of crops and livestock to all the

Unltel States. In hay, buckwheat and

small fruits it ranks first; it is second

to potatoes, apples and grapes.

"As an instance of the vital necessity

for such an agricultural credit

medium to this land bank district, Representative

Bacon cited the plight of

the potato farmers to his own county

of Suffolk. He feels that if this corporation

were now in operation these

farmers would be able to apply to It

successfully for aid to marketing their

crop to an orderly way. This Is merely

one illustration of the many services

that could be rendered and are

greatly needed."

To complete the plans already under

way and to sign the formal petition

to the Reconstruction Finance Corporation

a meeting will be held In

Commissioner Baldwin's office in Albany

on Tuesday.

International genetics conference at

Cornell University.

In the experiment, Dr. Lambert inoculated

seven-day-old chicks with the

fowl typhoid germ and selected breedtog

stock from the chicks whose families

gave the highest resistance. Some

inbreeding was done. Records of mortality,

kept until the chicks were 21

days old, showed that most of the

chicks which failed to survive from the

selected strains died on the eighth day

after inoculation and most of the

chicks from the unselected flock died

on the fifth day after inoculation.

Observations of 1,568 chicks of four

different breeds and from two strains

of a single breed, showed the following

mortality percentages: White leghorn

87.7, white leghorn 865, white Plymouth

rock 79.7, white wyandotte 93.4,

and Rhode Island red 94.4. The differences,

according to Dr. Lambert, probably

represent strain resistance rather

than breed resistance.

Crosses between the selected and unselected

stock show that the male as

well as the female transmits resistance

to the disease. Back crosses, he says,

indicate that more than one factor is

responsible for developing resistance

dnd that continued investigation is

necessary to establish the genetic behavior

of these disease resistant factors.

Where is the old 3-cent piece? Its

coinage began back to 1851 and it went

out of existence to 1889. They may

have to be revived to pay for the 3-cent

Appeal For

Second Hand Shoes

After the death of Mayor George H.

Reynolds, I was asked to succeed him

as Treasurer of the Salvation Army

in this district. We collected $218.00

and as requested forwarded It to the

Salvation Army Headquarters in Yonkers.

Later I wrote Headquarters to find

out how much might be spent in this

district for relief. I find Headquarters

ready and willing to do their share


It seems to me we should be careful

not to have their work overlap the

work done by other relief agencies.

A very practical suggestion has been

made In their letter to me of August

26th. It reads:

"If the Emergency Relief Committee

of Brewster could collect together say

fifty or sixty pairs of old shoes which

could be made serviceable, the Salvation

Army can have the work done

immediately with some local shoemaker;

this would leave the money in the

town and would prepare the children

•for school as well as any other men

•or women who would need shoes. Any

other need that arises kindly let us


So I appeal to you to send second

hand shoes to my office In the Roberts

Building between the hours of 9 and

-4:30 (Saturdays till 12). At other hours

'shoes may be left at the office of the

Brewster Auto Supply in the Addis

Building. This notice has the approval

of Miss Florence Shove, the Chairman

of the local Salvation Army Committee;

of Mrs. Eliza W Dean, our County

Commissioner of Public Welfare and of

Mrs. Harriett Merrill, our county social

worker representing the State Temporary

Emergency Relief Association,

with which association our local Red

Cross is co-operating in collecting

It has been announced that registrations

for Marymount Day School, Tarrytown,

on Thursday, September 8, in

plan of study has been arranged to

include not only the usual course of

studies, but attention will be directed

to choral work, diction, design and

craftwork. Provision has also been

made for organized sports and games

for all departments.


A good suggestion has been made by

the Brewster Lions Club to the Village

Board which briefly requests that a

sign placed on Main street directing

the public to the U. S. Post Office on

Progress street, would relieve a lot of

verbal directing and speed up both

pedestrian and auto traffic. There Is

no question but thr.t our post office

is a sort of hidden door trick and only

if a stranger is an expert magician

can he or she find it after asking the

first ten people they meet.

Pond States Position

To the Voters

Cold Spring. New York.

September 1st, 1932.

To the enrolled Republican voters of

Putnam County:

When a man Is serving in the capacity

of an elected official the bitter

spotliRht of publicity is turned upon

his cAery act. It matters not how conscientious

he may be in his determination

to live up to his oath and perform

the duties of his office to the

best of his ability, some of his actions

are certain to meet with disapproval.

Every man has a legitimate right to

express his own opinions, especially

concerning affairs that are of interest

to the public welfare, and every public

official should be mindful of the sentiment

expressed by the men and women

who comprise the constituency.

Interest on the part of the citizen is

a wholesome sign of desire that laws

should be made and enforced and that

justice should be rendered, and that

the wheels of government should turn

with the maximum of efficiency and

the minimum of expense.

On September 20th, 1932, the enrolled

Republican voters of our county

will select candidates for the various

offices who are representatives of the

Republican Party platform and of the

voters who have pledged their allegiance

to it. The responsibility does not

rest lightly upon all of us. This is not

any time for quibbling, no time for

carrying on our shoulders a chip to be

knocked off, no time for nursing our

personal grievances or private graudge.

We must face the facts that confront

us and face them squarely.

All of us know the unrest that is

sweeping the country at this moment.

So long as people are employed at regular

work and are receiving regular

wages there is seldom a great interest

taken in political affairs. Men are too

busy at these times earning a living

and enjoying life with their families

to apend much time or energy in probing

into public affairs. At these times,

people vote the Republican or the

Democratic tickets as a matter of custom

or heredity, or they don't vote at

all, as the case may be. We didn't have

to be so particular about candidates

. or platforms. But conditions are different

now. For the first time in years

the people of the country are taking

keen interest in public welfares and

when they speak we must heed their


In November, 1929, the voters in our

county were gracious enough to honor

me with the office of District Attorney

and I promised to fulfill my duties to

the best of my ability as I saw the

right. I am here today with no alibies;

you know my record as well as I do

and it speaks for me louder than I

can speak for myself. The District Attorney

is supposed to see that the law

is enforced and that violations are

punished; this I have tried to do. In

most cases I believe I have the wholehearted

support of every decent citizen

in the county who wants to see our

county a clean and law abiding spot

in which.to live and bring up their


Public opinion, in many places, is

arrayed against the forces of justice

when such cases are brought before the

court. The antipathy of the population

against this act has led to antipathy

against laws in general and has

brought about a widespread increase

in crime. Yet, as a sworn public official,

I have been bound under a section

of the Penal Law to do my duty in this

matter regardless of how it might affect

me personally. Many have criticized

me because of the expense I have

been compelled to incur in matters relating

to the 18th Amendment. There

is not one among you who would approve

if I were lax in murder cases, in

robbery, or in violation of the majority

of the laws. But, because I have tried

to do my duty as I promised to do,

there are many who have been violent

in their criticism.

No matter what our private opinions

may be, as good citizens of this nation

we should obey every law as long as it

is on the statute books of the nation.

U there are any provisions there which

are not the will of the majority then,

by action of the people, those laws

should be removed from the statutes.

With such action J am in hearty accord,

if the people so wish it. If I have

made errors during my term of office,

they have been errors of judgment

rather than of intent, and the experiences

I have gained in making them

will enable me to escape such errors

in the future.

I again solicit your support for myself,

but I also pledge myself wholeheartedly

to the support of the ticket

even though you may see fit to

nominate another for the office I seek.

I am a Republican; as such I will work

and vote for every man and every woman

on the Republican ticket.

Not only do we need to stand united

in our county affaire but we must be

together in our desire to secure victory

for the state and national tickets.

Depressed economic conditions always

lead to a reaction against the party in

power. That one fact alone shows us

that the national ticket has a real

struggle on its hands.

If renominated in the primary to the

office of District Attorney I pledge myself

to conduct the office as the citizens

of this county desire it conducted,

—unbiased, efficient and economical.

If I am renominated I will work to the

end for the success of the ticket; if

French Are Borrowing

Fashions From Children

French mothers are borrowing fashions

from their children these days.

Llttle-glrl styles, such as puffed sleeve,

wide sashes tied with big bows and

full frilly skirts, are among the novelties

worn at some of the most sophisticated

night clubs in Paris. Organdy

and emeralds become partners in this

new regime of young fashions, and

school-girl aprons take on a new importance

of style.

One designer has gone so far as to

reproduce, for older women, the cotton

apron worn by French children

and young girls as the standard equipment

of boarding schools. The grownup

version is an accurate copy of the

children's apron, yoke, plaits, little

sleeves and all.

Sale of Motor Fuel

Shows Increase

Motor fuel or gasoline sold and used

in New York in June, as reported to

the Motor Fuel Tax Bureau of the Department

of Taxation and Finance,

represents an increase of about 2.7%

over the amount reported for the same

month of the preceding year. It is the

first increase in four months. The figures

also show a jump over those for

the preceding month of this year. The

total for the first six months ending

June 30 also represent an increase

above the first half year fiures of 1931.

According to the statistics released

at the office of Thomas M. Lynch,

Commissioner of Taxation and Finance,

148,774,871 gallons represent the tax

paid motor fuel and refunds were allowed

on 2,532,435 gallons leaving the

net quantity taxable at 146,242,430 gallons.

A year ago the same month the

tax paid fuel was reported as 149,982,-

179 gallons, refunds 3,800,913 gallons,

net quantity taxable 146,091,266 gallons.

The net quantity taxable as reported

for May, 1932, was 137,396,352


The total quantity sold and used

during June was reported as 153,113,827

gallons as compared with 152,703,440

gallons for June, 1931, and 142,795,417

gallons in May of this year. The figures

for June show that of the nontaxable

gasoline reported 573,788 gallons

were sold to the United States

Government, 3,425,675 to state and

municipal governments and distributors

used for non-taxable purposes 339,-

493 gallons. A year ago these figures

were 336,004 gallons, 2,109,395 gallons

and 365,862 gallons respectively.

Despite the falling off in the use of

gasoline over a period of several

months this year an Increase of approximately

25,000,000 gallons for February,

1932, over February, 1931, accounts

for the increase shown for the

six months period. For the first half

of 1932 the net taxable gasoline totaled

709,456,090 gallons as compared with

095,642.265 gallons for the six months

period ending June 30, 1632. The paid

motor fuel was reported at 723,742,098

gallons as compared with 710,998,822

gallons for the first half of 1931. Refunds

were allowed on 14,286,008 gallons

during the six months period this

year and on 15,356,557 gallons in the

same length of time last year. The total

quantity sold and used for the first half

of this year was 743,432,286 gallons and

Chevrolet Picks Up

During August

On the basis of dealer reports of

Chevrolet sales for the * first twenty

days of August, this month, normally

the dullest of the summer season,

shows promise of exceeding July by a

comfortable margin, W. S. Knudsen,

president and general manager of the

Chevrolet Motor Comnay, declared.

Up to August 20, sales for the month

were reported as 17,038 units compared

with 14,698 in the same days of July,

a gain of nearly 16 per cent. For the

past several years July sales have consistently

run ahead of the August total,

Mr. Knudsen said.

He pointed out that the new federal

tax on automobiles was felt hardest in

July, so that that month was subnormal

in relation to other months of

this year, but he stated that he did not

believe the tax accounted for the full

amount of the gain made to August 20

over July.

He attributed a share of the increase

to a substantially improved sentiment

country-wide, and a gradual rebuilding

of confidence, with the result that peo­

ple able and intending to buy a new

car, but who have been postponing

the purchase through fear of the future,

are now entering the active buying


Some sections reported an Increase

to August 20 over the same period of

the month last year, and August is the

first month since early spring in which

a reporting period in any month exceeded

the corresponding period of the

previous month, Uje Chevrolet president


Mr. Knudsen discounted the idea of

the stock market action having a direct

bearing on the sales chart, other

than as a restorative of confidence,

although he said it may have accounted

for a few additional sales in the

East Atlantic section. But, he added,

LOUISIANA has dedicated her

new domeless capltol building,

a gigantic pile of limestone

which rises 83 stories above

the streets of Baton Rouge.

Louisiana boasts many modern

buildings in her bustling cities, but

the fame of the state Is not confined

to architecture. It is more widely

known for its equitable climate, Its

tranquil scenic beauty, and a hospitality

which makes the manifold

claims of her citizens as to the state's

point of excellence seem a bare recital

of obvious facts.

It is one of America's leading furproducing

regions, and the source of

staggering quantities of shrimps and

strawberries, oysters and oranges,

sugar and salt, terrapins and fiery

tabasco, rice and red snappers, figs

and frog's legs, waterfowl and muskrats,

timber and turpentine, cucumbers

and cattle, sulphur and Spanish

moss. Oil and gas flow from Its

seemingly inexhaustible subterranean


It boasts the- second largest port

In the United States—New Orleansthrough

which pass vast cargoes of

foreign commodities, Including 23,000,-

000 bunches of bananas each year, coffee

for every third cup consumed In

the United States, and mahogany and

sisal, to our markets; while all the

varied products of farm and factory

originating In the lower Mississippi

valley begin their sea Journey from

the city's docks.

Romance of New Orleans.

Many writers agree that New Orleans

is one of only three great

"story cities" of America. And New

Orleans is part and parcel of Louisiana.

One needs only to go beck to

the adventurous times of those daring

French pioneers, La Salle, Bienville

and Iberville; to the days of

those picturesque and honored pirates,

the Lafltte Brothers and Dominique

You; to quadroon balls, voodoo

rites, suicide and dueling oaks,

or even to the fantastic revels of this

year's Mardl Gras, to find romance


Today In Louisiana the visitor encounters

romance as readily In any

one of the half score lfi-to-20-story

office buildings of New Orleans as he

did formerly In the city's "haunted

houses," absinthe bars, or charming

patios rich in association with the

names of Lafayette, Louis Philippe,

Adeline Pattl, Jenny Llnd, Audubon,

Paul Murphy and Lafcadio Ileum.

For decades Louisiana's great sugar

mills, set down in the midst of

billows of green cane extending to the

horizon, had unfailingly ground out

wealth to the state's sugar barons.

Three hundred thousand tons of sugar

was not an.unusual year's yield

from the fecund black solL But the

major romance of Louisiana is to be

found not in its cane fields. The progenitor

of those fields, and of the

entire state, is the Father of Waters.

With its long, tenuous fingers of

silt thrust far out Into the Gulf of

Mexico, the "bird's-foot" delta of the

Mississippi Is unlike that of any other

major river on the globe. Between

its fingers or claws are shallow, open

bays, and the banks confining the

great streams Into which the river

divides at Head of Passes, 05 miles

below New Orleans, are in some

places only a few feet In width.

In colonial times, when 10 or 12

feet of water provided ample depth

for all caravels of commerce, navigation

of the main passes of the Mississippi

presented no difficulties, but

with the increase in the tonnage and

draft of vessels the shallow finger

channels were a bar to progress and


Making the Delta Navigable.

Ninety years ego the federal government

made the first appropriation

for deepening these natural channels,

and in the course of the next 40

years it succeeded, by means of crude

dredging processes, in increasing the

depth to from 12 to 20 feet But

when it is recalled that in time of

flood the Mississippi brings down for

deposit at its mouth more than 2,-

000,000 tons of sand a day, one can

realize that this was a costly and

disheartening battle.

By 1870 vessels had so increased

in sire and draft that a deeper channel

became a crying necessity. A

board of eminent engineers, appointed

to find a solution of the problem,

made exhaustive studies of many important

harbor entrances. Including

the mouths of the Danube, which had

been successfully improved by means

of contracting jetties similar to those

now in use on the Mississippi river.

The board finally reported that the

use of jetties would be too costly

for the Improvement of the mouths

of the Mississippi and recommended

the construction of a ship canal from

Fort St Philip (opposite Fort Jackson)

to the Gulf.

At this juncture there appeared before

congress an engineering genius

who persuaded that body to defer

for the time being the digging of the

ship canal and permit him, on a basis

of "no cure, no pay," to attempt

to provide and maintain a deep-water

channel In his own way.

But when congress finally accepted

this "can't loose" proposition of

James B. Eads, who had just completed

the world-famous steel-arch

bridge over the Mississippi at St

Louis, the engineer was not permitted

to use the Southwest Pass for

his experiment as he had specified.

This was the best of the three main

passes, and the government was taking

no chances with Mr. Eads and

his chimerical proposition! If he

wanted to lose his own money, he

could sink It in South Pass without

endangering the then best channel.

The Eads contract called not only

for a channel 26 feet deep and 200

feet wide at the bottom, but for maintaining

that depth for 20 years.

With tremendous energy and rare

organizing ability, the engineer set

to work, and in less than five years

his Jetties and his dredges had done

the work. And, furthermore, he maintained

the depth for 20 years, that

period expiring in 1001. The main

responsibility of the engineers today,

so far as the mouths of the Mississippi

are concerned, is to prevent the

river from creating new passes.

Furs From the Marshlands.

It is not only the Mississippi which

makes Louisiana "water-minded."

The state is threaded and meshed

with bayous, bikes and streams, giving

it more than 4,700 miles of navigable

waters—a total which exceeds

by two for one Its nearest competitor

in the* Union, Arkansas.

Naturally, much of the bordering

land in the vast delta region is marsh

area; but let no casual observer be

deceived into imagining that "marsh"

In Louisiana means waste or unproductive

land. It Is these tens of

thousands of grass-covered acres

which have given the state the unique

distinction of being the largest furproducing

commonwealth in the

Union. As a matter of fact not only

does Louisiana lead all other states

both in the value of its fur crop and

in the number of pelts marketed, but

last year, and for several years past

it has produced more pelts than the

entire Dominion of Canada, generally

recognized as one of the world's most

Important fur-producing countries.

The muskrat is the fur citizen mainstay

of the state's pelt wealth. Mora

than 5,000,000 of him were taken during

the open season from November

20 to February 5. 1028-29. What with

muskrats, opossums, raccoons, minks,

skunks, otters, wild cats and foxes,

the trappers* sales last year aggregated

$8.500.000—exceeding by a

third the total value of Alaska's, production

of gold and silver for the

same period.

The Evangeline Country.

Journeying by a series of autobus

stages from New Orleans to Lake

Charles, In the southwest corner of

the state, one passes through a section

of Louisiana which Is redolent

of romance. Here lies the Evangeline

country, with its many pleasing, if

seldom substantiated, stories identifying

particular spots with various

episodes in the Longfellow epic. St

MartlnvlUe, one of the oldest towns

in Louisiana, is the center of the

Evangeline cult, with its Evangeline

oak and its grave of the woman from

whom the poet is supposed to have

drawn his picture of the Acadian


At New Iberia are Louisiana's

famous suit mines. On an open-plutform

elevator one descends for 540

feet In Stygian durkness to the present

floor of this salt mine. Its vast

galleries are sixty feet in height, half

again as wide in some places, and

their winding length exceeds two

miles. With electric drills, miners

bore into the suit rock, set off their

charges of dynamite, and blow out

great blocks of pure crystal suit,

which is scooped up in mechanical

shovels and loaded on cars slmilur to

those used in coal mines.

With a production of some 19,000.-

000 bushels of rice a year, Louisiana

not only produces more of the cereal

than any other state in the Union,

but it has one-half of the entire

United States rice acreage
