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
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 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

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

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
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.
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
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
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,
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
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

East Main street.

tomorrow evening will close this after
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

gues wagging as to who will win. Sim

give nthe biggest handicap and for that
reason many Brewster horsemen be

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.

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
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

may wish to use the theatre for bene

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.

number of people who find special en

varied program of plaintive airs, stirring
melodies and 16th and 18th century
compositions which held her listeners
breathless and enchanted and called

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
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
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
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

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
Bv CHERTF, NICHOLAS
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

IN FALL STYLES
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
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

International genetics conference at
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.

coinage began back to 1851 and it went

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

A good suggestion has been made by

Pond States Position
To the Voters
Cold Spring. New York.
September 1st, 1932.
To the enrolled Republican voters of
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

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
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

Sale of Motor Fuel
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
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
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
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
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
