Sugar Rationing First Affects

Trade and Industrial Users

Registration for This Smaller Group Will Be Held

April 28 and 29. Consumer Registration

Set for May 4, 5, 6, 7

Albany—State Rationing Director

Maurice P. Neufeld wants teachers

and ratloners to pass high when the

sugar rationing registration starts. At

the same time he warned rationing

officials to "keep sugar certificates in

safes or other similar places—they're

as good as legal tender."

"Don't stop studying," he advised,

as he forwarded additional material

today to school officials, county ra­

tioning administrators, and local ra­

tioning administrators, and local ra­

tioning boards, for further schooling.

During the week of April 13, Dr.

Neufeld announced, he and members

of his staff will conduct regional

classes throughout the sjate In an

effort to lend every assistance to the

personnel taking part In the registra­

tion of trade and industrial users of

sugar scheduled for April 28 and 29.

"Although this registration," he de­

clared, "will be smaller than the con­

sumer registration which will be held

May 4, 5, 6 and 7, It will be much

more difficult because many techni­

cal factors will have to be considered.

Thorough preparation on the part of

the teachers and rationing officials Is


Regarding the sugar purchase cer­

tificates which will be issued to the

trade, the state rationing director


"These certificates are valuable and

will require extreme care and atten­

tion to prevent counterfeiting, rais­

ing of figures, or reporting Inaccurate

records. They are made of safety pa­

per and treated to show changes.

"Sugar certificates and stamps are

as negotiable as money. The certifi­

cates bear about the same relation to

stamps as folding money to change."

The state rationing director ex­

plained that the trade and industrial

users of sugar include all persons who

buy sugar primarily Tar resale pur-

iposes: commercial users who buy sug-

hx from wholesalers; and institutions,

such as restaurants, hotels, hospitals,

etc. Questions on the appllidations

presented by them are designed to de­

termine the operating inventories

necessary to keep these businesses

functioning, and to adjust their stocks

of sugar on hand to these necessary


The data given out by the state ra­

tioning office explained that the re­

tailer takes the stamps from his cus­

tomers and pastes them on gummed

sheets, which provide for 1D0 stamps,

and surrenders these to the wholesaler

to replenish the depletion of his stock

caused by the sales represented by

these stamps.

In order to avoid the awkward

handling of large quantities of these

gummed sheets by the wholesaler, he

privileged to go to the nearest region­

al office of the Office of Price Admin­

istration—not the local rationing

board—And exchange the stamps for

sugar certificates.

The wholesaler accumulates the

stamps or certificates and surrenders

them to the refiner or processor to re­

plenish his stock. No sugar can be

sold by the processor to the whole­

salers, except In exchange for these

certificates or stamps.

Evarts Estate, On

Dutcher Hill, Sold

Contracts were signed thJBfweek for

the sale of the HH1 House, property

of Mary Porter Evarts, on Dutcher

Hill, Mount Tom, Pawling. The prop­

erty consists of 20 acres of land, im­

proved with 10 room modernized farm

house, with 3 baths, 3 fireplaces, barns

and usual farm buildings. Hie buyer,

Everett H. Mayer, has also negotiat­

ed for the purchase from the same

owner of the Everett Peck farm ad­

joining, consisting of 160 acres, 12

room house, barns for 56 cattle, and

other outbuildings. The broker in

both transactions was Herbert J. Geb-

ing, of Carmel, N. Y.

In order to allow time for equaliza­

tion of stocks, when registration be­

gins, a "freeze" on sales of sugar will

be put into effect during the inter­

vening days between trade and con­

sumer registration.

"The freeze period," Dr. Neufeld re­

minded, "is not intended to be an ex­

cuse for some people to start hoard­

ing sugar now. I particularly appeal

to housewives to buy patriotically. Get

enough sugar a little while before

registration to tide over until you ob­

tain your legally rationed supply. You

will have to declare your supply any­

way, so be sensible. Failure to co­

operate in the sugar rationing pro­

gram will hurt not only loyal citizens,

but our soldiers and sailors.**

Dr. Neufeld suggested that local

boards in such cities as Albany, Am­

sterdam, Blnghamton, Buffalo, Elmlra,

Ogdensburg, Plattsburg, Rochester,

Schenectady, Syracuse, Troy and mi­

ca, might find it necessary to augment

their staffs for trade registration

April 28 and 29, as large sugar whole­

salers are located in these sections.

man, as "magnificent." the Preside')',

said that it showed the determination

of the people to make whatever sac­

White Plains, N. Y., March 30—in

preparing Westchester County for a

surprise blackout of long duration

the County Defense Council filed to­

night a critique of the March 15

blackout, listing twenty-two defects

that Included unfriendly dogs chasing

air raid wardens and inquisitive poli­

ticians overrunning alarm centers. The

Council urged that in the future both

types of offenders be controlled.

The defects were described to the

representatives of 46 local defense

councils meeting here tonight In the

Hotel Roger Smith. The compilation

had been drafted by Colonel Freder­

ick L. Devereux, head of the county

defense council, after study of the re­

ports of many of the 50,000 Westches­

ter defense workers.

Plans for the "surprise" blackout,

to be held between April 5 and 12 and

calling for full. mobilization of all

emergency forces In the area, were

approved tonight at the meeting. Ros-

slter Holbrook, executive secretary of

the Defense Council, said the only

community that would not participate

would be the city of New Rochelle. He

said the city had notified the council

that It still lacked adequate alarm


Signals Found Wanting

After asserting that the recent

blackout generally had been a success.

the critique said:

"Most of the local councils report­

ed the lack of proper publie warninc

signals. The sirens and whistles could

not be heard In a number of places.

' "Lights were reported in 30 houses,

buildings and stores in which there

was no one present to extinguish them.

Eight homes failed to take the neces­

sary blackout precautions because

•there were sick persons in the houses.

Wardens should see that the medical

profession is aware of this situation.

"A number of fires in fireplaces wer*

reported. People 6hould not build

fires In rooms that are not blacked

out. Three illuminated clocks were

reported. Lights were reported show­

ing through a number of skylights.

A skylight is difficult to check, but It

Is imoortant that the warden check

his district carefully for them.

"Grass fires and outside incinera­

tors caused some trouble. In many

cases there were reports of persons

smoking cigarettes and pipes on the

street. A number of attic and cellar

lights were reported Radio dial and

tube lights were observed. Reports

were made of visible reflections from

oil burners in schools, industries and


There were a few reports that war­

dens acted with undue severity. In

some Instances wardens who directed

persons to seek shelter could not, ad-

vUe where the shelter could be found.

There were altogether too many flash­

lights used by the wardens and aux­

iliary police.

"The number of willful violator-

was extraordinarily small. Publl

opinion will be a trrest 'persuader' IP

violations of this kind."

Ryan Seeks Seat Now Held by Fish

Latter May Go to Another County

Albany, March 28—State Senator

Allan A. Ryan, Jr., Poughkeepsie Re­

publican, announced today that he

would seek the Republican nomina­

tion in the Twenty-sixth Congression­

al District, the seat for which now is

held by Hamilton Fish, whose isola­

tionist views nave caused protests Jn

his district.

In announcing his decision by tele­

phone from his home Senator Ryan

said: .

"I have decided to become a can­

didate for Congress in the Twenty -

sixth District. Some time ago I reach­

ed the conclusion that as soon as my

term in the State Senate expired I

would enter the Federal service, or

devote myself to other work closely

allied to the war effort.

"It was my desire to Join the armed

forces or participate in some capacity

in the production of essential war

materials, but numerous friends have

persuaded me that I can make in

Congress a more direct and construc­

tive contribution toward the success­

ful prosecution of the war. I shall

therefore seek the Republican nomin­


"One thing is certain, the people of

this district expect their Congress­

man to direct his actions to the

wholehearted support 6f our govern­

ment's effort to win the war. If I am

elected that Is precisely what I in­

tend to do.

"The right to criticize governmental

policy Is the ABC of democracy, but

criticism must be constructive.

"I am not the least bit confused

about the distinction, and I am con­

vinced that the American people will

not stand for legislative' sabotage cal­

culated to obtain political advantage

for either an individual or party."

Previously Mentioned as Candidate

Mr. Ryan has been mentioned from

time to time as a possible Republican

candidate for the 26th Congressional

seat, and his announcement today is

taken to indicate that the party lead­

ers in both Putnam and Dutchess

Counties, two of the three counties

in the district, are supporting him.

The leaders In Orange, the third

county in the district, have not, as

yet, decided whether they will sup­

port Mr. Ryan or name another can­

didate, but it is considered extremely

likely here that they will support Mr.

Ryan. In any event, they are known

to be against Mr. Fish.

Representative Fish has announced

his intention of seeking a commission

In the armed forces. If such Is de­

nied to him, it is felt that he will re­

turn to his home district and make a

try for reelection.

tonight by General 'Douglas MacAr­

United Nations Forces in the South­

western Pacific, at a dinner given In

his honor at the Australian Parliu •

ment House:

I am deeply moved by the warmth

of the greeting extended to'me by ail

of Australia. The hospitality of your

| country is proverbial throughout the

. world, but your reception has far ex-

! ceeded anything I could have antici-

I pated.

Although this is my first trip to

Australia I already feel at home.

There is a link that binds our two

countries together which does not de­

pend upon written protocol . upon

treaties of alliance or upon diplomatic

doctrine. It goes deeper than that.

It is that indescribable consangui­

nity of race which causes us to have

the same aspirations, the same hope.s

and desires, the same Ideals and the

same dreams of future destiny. My

presence here is tangible evidence of

our unity. (Here he was interrupted

by a great burst of applause.)

I have come as a soldier in a great

crusade of personal liberty as opposed

to perpetual slavery. My faith in our

ultimate victory is invincible, and I

bring to you tonight the unbreakable

spirit of the free man's military code

in support of our Just cause.

That code has come down to us from

even before the days of knighthood

and chivalry. It will stand the test

of any ethics or philosophies that the

world has ever known. It embraces

the things that are right and con­

demns the things that are wrong.

Under its banner the free men of the

world are united today.

There can be no compromise. W r

The Republican County Committee

met at Carmel on Monday and filed

statements showing no expense was

incurred in their election. They were

unanimous in choosing as their chairman,

John R. Yale, and for secretary,

J. Bennett Southard.

The Democrats, notwithstanding

some kind of gentlemen's agreement

between Asbury C. Townsend and

William Church Osborn offered no

olive branches. The rules adopted by

the Townsend committee and declared

null and void by the Appellate Court,

were re-adopted thus perpetuating the

power of Mr. Townsend until 1013.

Having defeated Murphy, Dix, Osborn,

the Attorney General's office and various

malcontents who care nothing for

the material welfare and comfort of

the taxpayers who do not hesitate to

acknowledge openly the benefits obtained

through Assemblyman Yale

and a Republican legislature, Mr.

Townsend is entitled to contemplate

with pleasure the defeat of the Dix

dynasty next November.

The Town Board is considering

securing the services of a steeplejack

in order to get the old remnant of Old

Glory—once an American flag, ripped

and torn by summer breezes and winter

winds, since it escaped the hands

of Officer Pugsley when he attempted

to raise it in a brisk breeze more than

a year ago. The ropes were jerked

from the officer's hands and all efforts

to repair the damage were unavailing

on that day. The folorn condition

of the flag is not noted by many people,

but the pert question is how to

get It down and raise a new Star

Spangled banner.

Wm. H. Armstrong, in his 73rd. year,

is retiring from his post of fifty years

as steward of the steamer Trojan of

the Citizens' Line. He first entered

the employ of Daniel Drew in the

autmun of .1601 as assistant steward

on the Plymouth Rock of the Stonington

Line. In the spring of 1863

Mr. Armstrong was transferred to the

Hendrick Hudson plying between New

York and Troy and served for five

years under William H. Drew, of

Brewster, president of the company.

He continued running on the Hudson

every season until the present. At the

close of each season he spent several

weeks with his mother, Mrs. Eliza

Armstrong:, of Brewster. Her death

seems to have put an end to his Brewster

visits. On his last day of service

he was presented with a handsome

silver, loving cup by the officers and

crew of the steamer Trojan and a

purse of $250 in gold by the company.

the care of old razor blades works as

As Our Army Day

President Announces, Also, That Every

Armed Service Will Join In Observance.

Calls On All Cillvtlans. Those

Who Labor Behind Lines Should

Spare No Effort In Creating Arms,

He Says.

Washington, . March 20—President

Roosevelt today proclaimed April 6 as

Army Day, but said that all of the

armed services would participate in

the observance as was done on Navy

Day last Fall.

The President said that the nation,

aroused by "Axis treachery and repudiation

of all the Ideals of honor

and truth and decency which as a

free nation under God we cherish,"

had taken steps to mobilise a citizens'

army from all walks of life and was

preparing "to achieve that victory

upon which may be built a firm structure

of peace and freedom."

It was fitting, he added, that those

who labored behind the lines should

firmly resolve "to spare no effort

which may contribute to the speedy

creation of the arms and supplies indispensable

to the citizens' army."

The text of his proclamation was

as follows:

"I have proclaimed April 6 Army

Day. That day means more than ever

to us this year. We are fighting an

all-out war in defense of our rights

and liberties.

"Army Day becomes, therefore, 'n

fact a total-war day. It becomes a

day when all of our citizens in civil

pursuits can rally to the support of

our armed forces, for only in the

united effort of all our our forces-

Army, Navy and civilians—can we

find the strength to defeat our enemies.

"Never before in the one hundred

and sixty-six years of our history as

a free Republic under God have our

armed forces had so much meaning

for us all. We are engaged in our

greatest war, a war that will leave

none of our lives wholly untouched.

"We shall win that war as we have

won every war we have fought. We

are fighting It with a combined force

of free men that is, in Lincoln's words,

of the people, by the people, for the

people of the United States of America.

"Our Army is a mighty arm of the

tree of liberty. It is living part of

the American tradition, a tradition

that goes back to Israel Putnam, who

left his plow in a New England furrow

to take up a gun and fight at

Bunker Hill. In this tradition American

men of many ages have always

left the pacific round of their usual

occupations to fight in causes that

were worth their lives—from Lexington

to the Argonne.

"In times of peace we do not maintain

a vast standing Army that might

terrorize our neighbors and oppress

our people. We do not like to rehearse

interminably the cruel art of war.

But whenever a tyrant from across

the seas has threatened our liberties

our citizens have been ready to forge

and use the weapons necessary with

titie citizen soldiers, our friends and

relatives and neighbors of a few short

'Kittyhawk' Establishing

An Enviable Record

Known as the "hardest hitting

fighter" in service with the United

States Air Forces today, the Curtlss

P-40 D—the Kittyhawk—Is establishing

an enviable record in numbers of

enemy aircraft destroyed. Tested first

in the heat of battle over the Libyan

Desert, long before the-United States

entered the war, the Curtlss IP-40

proved more than a match against

the best planes the Axis Countries

could throw against it. Italian fighters,

Nazi bombers, even the famed

Messerschmidt 10GF went down in

flaming defeat under the terrific hitting

power of the Kittyhawk's .SO caliber

machine guns.

Australian pilots have nothing but

praise for the Kittyhawk. One English

commander was quoted as saying,

"Huns don't like them, but they're

prejudiced. Our squadron has done

well, having destroyed more than 120

machines in air combat and probably

destroyed and damaged 70 more. Also,

we have destroyed SO on the

by volunteer American pilots, the Klttyhawks

destroyed 200 Japanese planes

in Burma with the loss of only 42 of

their own, according to Air Marshal

Sir Richard Persse, Chief of the R.

A. P. in India.

After Pearl Harbor, the sharp nosed

deadly P-40 D's again won respect

from the enemy when in a surprise

move they emerged as light bombers.

At Subic Bay three (P-40's that somehow

had escaped whole from the continuous

dive bombing attacks of the

numerically superior Jap planes, sank

a number of Japanse transports with

bombs and with machine gun fire.

In response to numerous friends seeking his leadership as Representative

in Congress for the 26th District, New York. Allan A.

Ryan, of Rhincheck. N. Y„ announces that he would seek the Republican

nomination. His statement, as published in The New York

Times on Sunday, March 29, 1942, appears in this issue of The

Brewster Standard. Mr. Ryan said: "One thing is certain. The

people of this district expect their Congressman to direct his actions

in the wholehearted support of our government's effort to win the

war. If I am elected that is precisely what I intend to do. The right

to criticize governmental policy is the ABC of democracy, but criticism

must be constructive. I am not the least bit confused about the

distinction, and am convinced that the American people will not

stand for legislative sabotage calculated to obtain political advantage

for either an individual or a party.

Like General MacArthur, Allan Ryan is a man of action, a man

of few words. His use of words in response to the people seeking

his leadership in the world crisis reveals his understanding of the people,

children, women and men. As a father, statesman and friend.

Allan Ryan knows the power of love, integrity and courage. School

boys, men in training for service, future voters and taxpayers came

in Monday to talk about Allan Ryan. Children, thirty years ago,

helped carry Primary petitions to voters whose signatures were needed

on the day appointed to designate candidates for office, and this

year, though tires and tubes may fail, children and adults, close to

the people, are ready to serve. Edward D. Stannard. Clayton Ryder,

James W. Wadsworth. William F. Bleakley and Wendell Willkie

know the people will work. They do not need titles, uniforms or

Hatch Acts, and the Board of Elections will not need the Secretary

of State, Attorney General nor F.B.I, to check on their work.

The people anticipate further comment from Allan Ryan and

his associates for the campaign. In the meantime they will celebrate

Easter and rejoice in their ability to serve their country and the cause

of the United Nations.

Agents of the Westchester County Historical Society visited

Brewster on Tuesday to inquire whether the files of this newspaper,

the Town of Southeast and the Village of Brewster were adequately

protected from bombs. The answer may be unsatisfactory to those

who do not realize how many sources can provide records for those

who seek thoroughly to check all sources. Probably the original

maps and field sheets of Putnam County at 120 Broadway are as

safe as the lands described on the assessment rolls. Histories of the

past are filed in many libraries and homes.

If nothing appears safe, nothing appears lost. Some say only

date lines distinguish one issue of this newspaper from another; that

not since the founding of Kent's parish have the character and temper

of the people changed; that the banks and the railroad, telephones

and electricity grow stronger, as the people carry on the daily round.

Fundamentally all is safe because of healthy, confident action to replenish

any loss and to provide future service.

Until the fate of New Rochelle seems more secure by provision

of sirens or black hangings, it appears the historians of Westchester

should seek inspiration from the pen of Thomas Paine, Revolutionary

pamphleteer, who was honored by the Congress of the United

States, the State of New York and the city of New Rochelle before

he died there in 1809. In spite of the return of his bones to England

ten years later the records he left should help keep the people

secure in mind... This so-called dissenting minister gave us words as

stirring as Henry Forrestal did on Sunday morning, when in the days

of '76 he wrote. "We fight not to enslave, but to set a country free,

and to make room upon earth for honest men to live in."

Whether Allan A. Ryan, Jr., is private citizen, public servant

or soldier, his supreme obligation is to uphold the Constitution of

The United States of America and the Bill of Rights which covers

the four freedoms named by President Roosevelt as the fundamental

rights of all people. Mr. Ryan states he is not confused, and that

goes for thousands of people who will vote for him as the new candidate

for Representative in Congress of the old 26th District, New


In The New York Times and The Newburgh News appear

/daily reports of conversations that indicate Mr. Fish may be confused

or that be may be attempting to confuse the people. It is possible

some people are confused, but every hour fresh evidence that confusion

is being rapidly dispelled comes to the newspapers that serve

ibe people.

Jt may be Mr. Fish has never lacked the courage of his convictions,

but surely many who support him lack what he would consider

courage. The operation of the "divide and rule" principle in

this district will reveal that fact to anyone who comprehends the

great game of politics. Members of churches, schools, fraternal organizations,

country clubs and baseball - teams since 1926 have been

struggling to overcome the influences of that unhappy principle. They

have succeeded. People believe Kishawana Country Club can

weather the financial storm, avoid foreclosure and pay Joseph M.

Adrian the debt long past due him. The Kishawana Indians can

give Allan Ryan as big a party as they gave Judge Bleakley before

the Primary of 1936. This banner Republican community neglected

by Mr. Fish since the defeat of Mary Helen Smith. Republican,

will give a record majority to Allan Ryan in November.

Like Mr. Ryan. Gerard Mergardt. Alexander F. Lobdell. William

Makenny. Lager Tilljander, Raymond Bruen. Richard O'Brien

and other young men of family, not in the armed forces are ready

to serve as new candidates for office or committees to support candidates

who believe in the course of action Mr. Ryan follows. They

recognize the supreme obligation.

Poughkeepsie, N. Y., March 30—Headquarters of the Independent

Committee of the 26th District announce that a drive is now

under way for obtaining signed memberships. Allen T. Brown.

Ass't Secretary of the Committee, announced that individual nonpolitical

groups are being approached by direct contact for member­

Brown added that a manifesto of the motives and intentions of the

committee will appear in the form of an open letter to the voters of

the 26th district through an advertisement in every weekly and daily

newspaper in the district on Thursday, April 2nd.

promised a fight in the primaries if Hamilton Fish decides to run

again. His reasons for this are illuminating. The Dutchess County

Republican Committee, according to Mr. Bontecou, would not support

Mr. Fish because the Dutchess leaders do not thinkf he can win.

In other words, it appears that the primary purpose of the County


Committee is to pick a winner. Our present Congressman is a per­ the world -as a citizen and as a mem •

ber of so-called society." The report

like a selection at a race track, than picking a representative for a "Because the vast and checkered

large district to sit in a body whose decisions may affect the future

of the whole world.

"Mr. Bontecou and the other leaders know the real reason why

Mr. Fish or anybody who shares his views will not get the designation

of the Republican Party. If they don't know they should write

to General MacArthur, or any of our men now fighting for their

lives in the Philippines. It was over Fish's stiffest resistance that

Congress was able to grant funds for the army to build defenses in

this area and in almost every other outpost that is keeping the enemy

from our own shores right now.

"In another recent statement, Mr. Bontecou rose up in wrath

at the interest which outsiders are showing in our coming Congressional

election. Doesn't he realize that contrary to this statement,

'we have been able to take care of our problems in this district before

and we're still able to take care of them', that by maintaining Hamilton

Fish in Congress for twenty-two years, Mr. Bontecou and other

leaders have shown their inability to do just that. Who put up

Mr. Fish for Congress in 1940 when he had just finished fighting

the draft bill? Where would we be now if the bill had not been


"Unless the Republican leaders make it very clear that we are

going to have a representative who can rise above party politics, and

who can have a few deep convictions about the prosecution of this

war and the peace to follow, rather than the desire of, 'getting that

man in the White House.'outsiders are going to continue to be amazed

and shocked and to interfere. And they are not the only ones,

for we hope that the Republican voters of the 26th District (as well

as the Democrats) will rise up and insist on the nomination of candidates

who are enlightened and in whom they can have confidence

and pride."


Probably Republican forces of

Dutchess County, who feel terribly

hurt at the prospect of losing one Assemblyman

will feel equally pleased over the prospect

of a reorganization of the 30th

Congressional district. For that reorganization

spare them the worst embarrassment

they have faced in decades—that of

doing something about Congressman

Pish. Not in many years, if ever, has

the Republican organization in these

parts been possessed of a man it has

supported for years and who ranks as

an old line Republican, yet who, they

feel, no longer represents the majority

view of his constituents. Quite

naturally, because of their dominance j p^f

in the county and the district, the

Republican organization has a right to

say what the majority view is; and it

smacks of exasperation when the organization

through its leaders now

says that Mr. Pish no longer speaks

the views of the majority In his district.

Prospect of the loss of an assemblyman

is most painful because the

Republican organization has been well

represented by its two veterans. One,

Assemblyman Howard N Allen, is one

of the oldest members of the lower

house in point of service, and he holds

membership on the

Taxpayers Study

Rising Tax Budgets

Now Is the time for taxpayers T O

begin their efforts for the reduction

of 1943 budgets to offset the rising demands

of federal taxes for war financing.

By observation of governmental

units operating under current appropriations,

taxpayers should be able to

ask pertinent questions and to arm

themselves with material for constructive

and specific recommendations

when budget making time for the

county, city, township or district rolls


Here are some questions the Citizens

Public Expenditure Survey suggests

taxpayers ask of the governmental

units which they support:

1. In view of tire and automobile

rationing, to what extent has travel

by officials and local government il

employes been curtailed?

2. II capital outlays for roads and

similar purposes have been postponed

because of the national emergency

and priorities, has this been accompanied

by reduction In engineering

and Inspection services and other personnel

primarily assigned to preparation

of plans and supervision of such


3. What efforts have been made by

local welfare officials to reduce their

case loads In view of the improvement

in employment opportunities?

4. If case loads for unemployment

relief are dropping, are administrative

costs showing a proportionate drop?

If not, why not?

5. Will the Increased state aid for

schools voted by the Legislature this

year be used to keep down real estate


6. Have decreases in average daily

attendance in schools been reflected

in reduction in personnel?

7. What non - essential services,

measured by wartime standards, have

been curtailed or eliminated?

These questions should suggest others.

Taxpayers who recently filed

their federal income tax returns experienced

an early indication of what

the war will cost. The cost to th«

taxpayer is certain to multiply many

fold. Under these circumstances taxpayers

will show no hesitancy In asking

questions about non-war expenditures

and will demand the answers.

Prom five to six tablespoonfuls of paradlchlorobenzene

should be scattered

among the moth-free garments or

tied in a piece of muslin and placed

on top of the clothes.

Garment bags of heavy paper are

excellent storage places for. clothlnn

which is not in use: but since moths

can enter through the tiniest of holes,

even a small break or tear renders a

bag useless If. however, at the time

of storing, the varments are free from

both moths and larvae, and if the bas

is tightlv sealed, the clothes will remain

safe from injury.

There is no quick and easy method

for keeping the house free from moths.

Constant watchfulness is essential,

especially with fabrics likely to be injured.

In maintaining our recently established

policy of having occasional

student conducted assemblies, a Home

Economics program was held last

week under the direction of Anna

Membertr. One of the two main features

was an Informal discussion

about all the Home Economics taught

in our school. Louise McConaughy

represented an average high school

elrl who was plannlnp her schedule

for the coming school year. The following

girls, who are at present studying

Home Ec, took part in the discussion

bv telling Louise what earn

Home Ec. was like: Barbara Turner.

Gladys Tompkins. Marie LeVarne.

Jeanne Shay and Josephine Bocchino.

The fact that each girl prepared her

own part and the very Informal atmosphere

which existed made this

part of the program rather unique.

The highlight of the assembly was

a fashion show in which the majoritv

of our high school girls participated.

The scene for this took place in

a store where Muriel Menichelli, a

prospective college girl, had planned

to purchase her wardrobe. She was

ably assisted by Betty White who

acted as salesgirl. One by one the

girls walked on to the staee. modeling

various styles including pajamas,

house coats, skirts and sweaters,

slacks, tea dresses, coats, suits, evening

dresses and wraps. All in all It

was a very colorful and pleasing spectacle.

Music was played at different intervals

by a three-olece orchestra

consisting of Howard Chorsky. trumpet:

Roy Fowler, drums, and Howard

Johnson, piano. This group also played

In the gymnasium during the noon

hour for dancing.

Free Mail Set Up

For Service Men

The Postofflce Department announces

that the recently approved

free-mailing privileges for men in the

armed services would become effective

at main points in the country oy

the end of the week.

Local postmasters will begin accepting

mail of service men in unstamped

envelopes as soon as they

receive official notice through the

postal bulletin, mailed April 1.

The free-mailing privilege was approved

by Congress as part of the

second War Powers Bill which President

Roosevelt signed on Saturday.

It applies to enlisted men and commissioned

officers of all services and

to letters mailed at home or abroad.

The benefits are restricted to firstclass

letter mail. Such matter may

be mailed to any addess In the United

States or its territories and possess^


A service man who wants to take

advantage of the privilege need

merely write his name, rank and organization

on the upper rlghthand

corner of the envelope and the word

"Free" in the upper lefthand corner

-Jthen drop it into the letter slot.

Postofflce officials said that the

concession would lower receipts in

some local offices. They believe, however,

that few postmasters or supervisors

in military or naval establlshmetnts

will receive pay _cute. The

salaries of such officials depend on

the receplts of their offices.

Starlight Cast May Go

On Tour in This Area

A new policy Is considered for Starlight

Theatre, operated by the Jones

family on Route 22, south of Pawling,

stock season on Tuesday, June 30Ui.

Stage and screen stats in recent

Broadway comedies will again be the

main feature but this season the company

may tour with each play and

Peeksklll, and Danbury. Other towns

visited may be Mt. Kisco, Beacon.

Wingdale and MUlbrook.

Negotiations are under way for

suitable theatres or auditoriums, and

an exact schedule of the rotary towns

and nights will be announced later.


Owing to the cost of aerial bombs,

It will be necessary to rely on sirens,

church bells, etc., to give the alarm

In such practice blackouts as may be

held, reserving the bombs for blackouts

ordered by higher authority.
