Coleman, rector of the church.
The annual confirmation services of
St. Andrew's Episcopal church usually
draw a large gathering to witness the
laying on of hands ceremonies by
which yAiths and adults are made
members of the church. It Is expected
that Bishop Gilbert's visit will also
draw a large congregation.
Two persons were injured, apparent
ly not seriously, as the outcome of a
crash involving a truck and two auto
mobiles on Route 22 just south of this
village at 9 o'clock Sunday night.
(Mabel Harrison, 60, of Richmond,
Conn., suffered contusions of the fore
head, lacerations of the bridge of the
nose and a contusion of the chest. Mrs-
C. S. Cushman of New MUford, Conn.,

As Area Of Homes
New Publication, "Ilome-a-grapV Of
fered for Sale on All Newstands
Throughout the Metropolita and
Suburban Areas Gives Descriptions
Throughout the Metrololitan and
Westchester's appeal as a residen
tial and recreational community is
eloquently set forth in The Home-a-
graph, a new publication designed to
answer every question that may arise
in the mind of a home-seeker. For
the first time in book form, every fact
of practical advantage to a prospec
tive dweller in suburbs is set down,
tersely and informatively against a
background of the historical and cul
tural advantages of the county.
The Home-a-graph tells what West
chester offers not merely to the family
but to every member of the family
Incidentally. The supreme position of
Westchester's schools, the unrivalled
charm of its parks and parkways, the
abundant areas devoted to golf and
tennis and other sports, the accessible
expanses of its waters for swimming,
sailing and fishing, the variegated field
for winter sports, the development of
artistic, fraternal and other organiza
tions—all these are described in de
tail. From Amawalk to Yorktown
Heights, virtually every square mile of
Westchester is covered.
% Brewster receives especial considera
tion in the general stories in the vol
ume, with living, recreational and cul
tural advantages stressed. Particular
ly valuable is the extent of tabulated
information concerning train schedules,
bus service, utility rates, police and fire
protection, school facilities, churches,
clubs, shops and recreation facilities.
The Home-a-graph is concise and com
plete, liberally illustrated with recent
photographs and should prove a veri
table encyclopedia for a homeseeking
visitor to Westchester while many a
life-long resident may read it with

Hollywood is simply crazy. It is the
height of informality in every way.
Bleached blondes, thicker than flies,
all in slacks, pajamas, wandering
around the streets, and all made-up
as if they were about to face the
kleig lights. Everything here is stupendous,
colossal, gigantic and utterly
Insane. Neon lights attracting you to
an opening of a store, convention, a
preview or Eome such. Flags flying and
banners waving. Rah, Rah, Hollywood
and the best, biggest, sunshiniest and
most marvelous state in the Union.
And it's all blah! True, it's beautiful
here and a grand place to live but
give me our section of the county every
time, with its water, restful trees,
pretty flowers and — rain- Not a river
has any water in it and reservoirs
and lakes like ours are unknown. The
trees are semi tropical, for the most
part and the flowers are bold, both in
color and design. They seem like conventional
paintings. And rain—of
course it is unheard of at this time.
There is a heavy haze each morning
which weighs you down for a while.
The lawns are beautiful due to constant
care and artificial application of
water, otherwise the land would revert
to a desert.

Pell to Sail Soon
For Portuguese Post
Herbert Claiborne Pell of "Pellbridge,"
near Hopewell Junction, who
was recently nominated as minister to
Portugal by President Roosevelt, will
sail for the continent May 19. Reached
at his Dutchess county home, Mr.
Pell said he and Mrs. Pell expected
to sail for England on the American
liner Manhattan and that he would
assume his duties early in June. His
son, Claiborne, a student at Princeton,
expects to spend the summer
with his parents.
Of his new appointment, Mr. Pell
said: "I am perfectly delighted to have
the opportunity of going to Portugal.
I am sure it will be a very Interesting

is one of the most important in
Europe. I am particularly glad to have
my children know that I held a position

traveled extensively in France and
At Mt. Zion Church
The annual home-coming service
will be held in Mt. Zion church, Lincolndale,
on Sunday, May 9, at 2:30 p.
m. The Rev. Ernest C. Potter, of the
Katonah Presbyterian church, will be
the preacher. The memories of the
past and the ties of genuine affection
which cause so many to think of this
old church as a sort of family tratlon,
make these annual home-coming services
occasions of delightful reunion.
While the old church owed its allegiance
to the Methodist tradition, it
draws each year a host of friends of
other denominations. The committee
is very happy in its choice of a Presbyterian
minister to be guest preacher
this year. This service is sure to be
well attended. Every one is welcome.

time in public in Brewster, was
again the center of approbation and
compliment after her offering of two
groups of solos. Her choice of numbers
showed the extent of her mastery of
tone production and versatility in interpretation,
which ranged from the
legato of "O Sleep! Why Dost Thou
Leave Me?" from Handel's "Semele,"
through the lilting "Gypsy Life," by Edwards,
to the appealing and favorite
"Annie Laurie." The Edwards number
and "Annie Laurie" were her encores
to the two groups which included the
light gaiety of "The Year's at the
Spring," by Mrs. H. H. A. Beach, and
the narrative and pictorial Grieg in
"A Dream." Other selections were
Schubert's "Ave Maria," Charles' "Let
My Song Pill Your Heart," and Mrs.
Beach's "Ah Love! But A Day."
