furnishes a striking example of the

public's rapidly increasing demands for

"Only by crowding additional cots in­

to already overcrowded wards and

urging the isolation cottage, has it

been possible to meet the unusual pa­

tient-load. Such practice is far from

Two Persons Hurt

In Crash on 22

Bishop Gilbert to Visit

St. Andrew's, May 16

The Rt. Rev. Charles E. Gilbert.

D.D., of New York City, suffragan

bishop of the Episcopal diocese of New

York, will visit St. Andrew's Episcopal

church Sunday afternoon, May 16, at

4 o'clock to administer the rites of

confirmation on the class now under

Instruction of the Rev. Frederick A.

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.,

suffered lacerations of the head and

face. Both were treated by Dr. Alex­

ander Vanderburgh and then removed

to the Mt. Kisco hospital-

According to an Investigation made

by Troopers Griffin and Lotito of the

local barracks, Abraham Osopky of

Amenia was driving his truck north

on Route 22 when he pulled to a stop

and was struck in the rear by a car

operated by BUnn Cushman, Jr., of

New MUford, Mass. A few moments

later another sedan, owned by Mabel

fiarri&on and operated by Kenneth

Harrison, plunged into the rear of the

Cushman sedan.

Mrs. Mason and Mrs. Cushman re­

fused treatment and went home.

Westchester Seen

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

profit too.

Strong Praises

Choral Club Concert

Brewster Standard:—

The concert given on Monday, April

26, at the High School by the Brew­

ster Choral Club was certainly a great

success. A tribute must be paid to Mr.

Khapp and Mr. Strang for their un­

selfish labors and those who contribu­

ted so nobly to a most enjoyable ev­

ening; for it Is not easy task to be pre­

sent at all rehearsals in all kinds of

winter weather, and with many other

affairs that come up in the meantime-

We hope it will start a fine Commu­

nity Spirit among all of us for the

good of Brewster and neighboring

towns. It was certainly a credit to all

those who so nobly cooperated to make

an evening of most enjoyable entertain­

ment, which left us with a sense of

refinement and up lifting. May the

good work go on I

The selection of Miss Shaffner, as

guest artist, was a most happy one.

While on the subject It seems as

though there is sufficient talent to pro­

duce, next winter, one of the Gilbert

and Sullivan light operas. Trial by

Jury, Pinafore, or one of the gems

those men have contributed to the

music world.

Thank you Mr. Knapp and Mr.

Strang, for untiring efforts in making

Tuesday evening such a glorious one

for us all.

Hasty Lines

From California

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

Home-Coming Service

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.

Miss Shaffner, appearing for the second

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."

Alderson Mowbray, pianist, of New

York City, was accompanist for Miss


With Harold A. Knapp directing, the

choral club revealed remarkable volume

control, tone production and balance

of harmony. The concert orchestra,

conducted by Charles Strang, showed

progress had been made in the few

months which have intervened between

the winter concert given in January

and Monday evening. The two groups

were presented as a unit for "The Song

of Man," a composition by Richard

'Kountz, with words by Gilbert Purcell.

JThe song, suggestive of a motet, pro-

'vided opportunity for both groups to

Ishow their abilities. There was an "a

was expertly handled and incidental

Well we did see a few week enders

at the lake but not so many. There

was still enough chill in the air to

keep the timid souls away. We did

have a big gang up on Sunday and we

saw cars parked everywhere along

the roads throughout the grove.

Mr- and Mrs. Howard Brouns were

up for the week end. While Howard

was busy giving the cottage a coat of

grey paint the Missus was out on the

lawn painting the lawn chairs.

soon busy getting a coat of paint on

the cottage.

Mr. and Mrs. I. VanDeventer spent the

week end at their cottage. Mrs. Vaneventer

who is quite a gardner spent

most of her time getting her flower

beds and hedges trimmed up for the

witness the football game in which

Notre Dame will take part. Their sonin-law,

Judge and Mrs. Wilson of Tuckahoe,

spent the week end at their cottage.

Ma. Wilson enjoyed the outdoors

cleaning up her garden.

Mr. and Mrs- George Wallin and

The folks were over getting the cottage


Mrs. Reynolds and the grls spent

the week end at their cottage. The

garden and flsh pool got a good overhauling.

Mrs. Reynolds has several of

her cottages for sale.

Thert was quite some activity about

the Peene cottage Sunday but Gardner

was up on the golf course with

the boys.

It looks as though that painting job

on the "Lyons Den" is going to last

well into the summer. Ed was up for

the week end but couldn't resist getting

up on the golf course with the

with one of the boys looking the cottages

over as he expects to rent one

this season.

Mr. and Mrs- Roland Shays and

daughter drove up Sunday from Queens

Village. They were busy getting the

paint on the cottage but we know by

the furtive glances he was casting

toward the golf course what was on

his mind.

Saw Bert Prawley working about the

"Shanty" on Saturday. He had to

leave early as he was attending a

"Beefsteak" at the "Schnorers Club"

in the Bronx.

Mr. and Mrs. John Leahey were up

for the week en*. They had some of

the boys with them and were busy

painting the cottage.

Jack Foley, our champion fisherman,

felt the urge to get after those perch.

He was over during the week and

made a catch of six. Jack expects to

be over soon for the season.

We had about a half dozen picnic

parties at the pavilion Sunday, 60 it

looks like an early season. There was

also quite a few boats out on the lake

with fishermen.

Mr. and Mrs- Chipps of Valhalla,

spent Sunday at their cottage getting

it in shape for the season.

Now that Harry Payne has finished

the job on his cellar he is busy in his

garden again. Harry has quite a number

of delphiniums set out and has

some beautiful shrubs in bloom.

Some of the boys were out on the

ball lot last Sunday and we saw Pa

Jenkins batting them out to Billy

Brewster Gossip

Everything is still very quite along

our Main street but when we look over

the pictures in our newspapers we

see snow plows in Minnesota and

floods in Pennsylvania and other states

nearby so lets be thankful we are so


It seems most of my critics hide out

somewhere along East Main street.

Just received a note from a lady up

that way (it wasn't from Goossen's

Furniture Store either). Heres what

it said: Sam spells Sam and Jam spells

Jam but James spells Lloyds first

name. Well it seems we did have it

Sam Lloyd and we stand corrected.

Then the note goes on to say there is

no a in liniment. Well not having my

copy I can't say whether I am to

blame or whether my pal, Clint, hit a

wrong key on the Linotype.

In listening in on our Station FNS

we heard a big handsome store manager

lamenting the fact that he made

a lemon meringue pie for wifie last

Sunday which proved a dismal failure

We have been wondering why Leger

Reynolds, our star salesman, has been

coaxing everyone to take a chance on

that "sparrow" at Andersons until we

discovered that he has an old bird

cage he expects to sell to the winner.

Charlie Strang, our famous "maestro,"

evidently is trying to muster up

enough ambition to start a garden. We

notice him looking longingly over those

seed packets in Duffy's every morning-

Charlie Anderson had a busy week

making new signs (take note of the

sign Sam puts on the counter when

the gang is in session). He is also getting

his studio ready for the expected

rush of chauffeur's renewal pictures

next month.

Several members of the rifle club

held a lively meeting in Andersons

the other morning. Frank Light had

Jimmy Martyn on the floor demonstrating

a new sitting position and the boys

who weren't in on the know were about

to call Johnny Furst and the ambulance.

Hatch Owens, "The Phantom Singer,"

Joe Hughes and Nelson Tuttle sure

looked spi-fly in the Tux suits Monday

night. They had to give Hatch gas to

get that collar on.

we forgot to mention the opening he

Tilly Foster Range

Opens May 9

The attendance of members at the |

regular match held on the range at

Crol on Falls on Sunday, April 25. fell

ofT somewhat, probably due to the

beautiful spring weather. We missed

some of our top shooters, among whom |

were Charlie Stover, Leo Oustafson,

R. Lincoln and Ed Mlnerley. Even

those present at the match seemed to

be suffering from the spring fever as

some of the scores will show.

Among the ladies shooting we had

Mrs. A. Eastwood. Mrs. M. Nichols,

Mrs. Elsie Light and Mrs. E. Alexander.

Mrs. Nichols has been improving

her scores each week and we can expect

to see her up at the top in the

near future.

Our Peach Lake Pride, Charlie Goller,

was back on the Job and turned in

something like his usual score. He

would have had no alibi this week as

he has had his gun trigger repaired.

Evidently our Marine, Art Hansen,

couldn't take the sting of defeat so

easily. He turned in a score that left

our Navy, Bill Duffy, so far behind

that it left no doubt as to the question

of superiority.

Not to be caught napping this Sunday

our Chef, George Strand, brought

a diuble supply of hamburgers but they

had all disappeared before the match

was finished.

Among our visitors we had little

Miss Anne Eastwood and June Alexander.

They kept Doug Bell, one of

our Vapyre Twins, busy furnishing the

chewing gum and entertaining them.

Doug has a way with the youngsters.
