Sayles Answers Supervisor As CD Squabble Continues SOUTH SALEM— Kenneth Sayles, Democratic town chairman in Lewisboro, has challenged Supervisor Cyrus Rus­ sell to prove that local firemen have spent considerable time working on a civil defense plan. Mr. Sayles issued a statement Monday in reply to remarks made by the Republican supervisor at last week's Town Board meeting. At the meeting a letter from the Democratic chairman was read urging the town to move forward in civil defense planning. \Any plans that local fire de­ partments have made to this point have not been as part of any town plan,\ Mr. Sayles de­ clared. \Training two or three men in one department for ra­ diological work is not a plan in itself. \Mr. Russell cannot pass the buck to state and county in this matter,\ the Democrat continued. \It is a matter of town responsi­ bility and the plain fact is that Lewisboro had not moved in this direction until this month. We raised this issue in September of 1961 and in last year's election campaign and it has taken the Town Board over a year to be­ gin to give it thought.\ Mr. Sayles also commented on the supervisor's statement that he had not noticed the Democrat­ ic town chairman volunteering to serve in civil defense work. \For Mr. Russell's informa­ tion,\ the Democratic town chair­ man said, \I offered my services to Arthur Witte, newly appointed deputy civil defense director, ful­ ly two weeks before Mr. Rus­ sell's snide remarks.\ r — — 6 Face Grand Jury Action In 50 Upcounty Burglaries T1 A TT- » T y T T MTT —— - - — MEASURE YOUR MATTRESS NEEDS VISIT OUR SLEEP SHOP WE GUARANTEE YOU'LL SLEEP BETTER . .ttEL BETTER IN 30 DAYS ON A SEALY MATTRESS I MT.

KISCO PE 7-2500 Sinclair i Would your auto liability insurance be renewed after an accident like this? One lapse, one split-second mistake and you're guilty of causing an accident. It could happen to anybody. If it happened to you, would your insurance company refuse to renew? Could you find another company willing to take you on? When you switch to Allstate, you get a five year written pledge that you won't lose your auto liability insurance because of accidents! After you switch your auto insurance to the Allstate Crusader policy your auto liability protection can't be cancelled by the Company just because of an accident for 5 years. This Allstate pledge to re­ new and not to cancel is given to you in writing and begins 60 days after the coverage is in effect. This extra benefit is in addition to Allstate's fast, fair claim service and famous low rates. Are there ever any exceptions? As long as a premium is paid when due, and you live in a state where the feature is avail­ able, the only reasons for which Allstate can cancel a policy involve conviction or forfeit of bail for one of six major traffic crimes—drunk driving; driving under the influence of drugs; bit and run driving; committing vehicular homi­ cide; car theft; driving while license is suspended or revoked—or if there is a false statement in the insurance or driver 's license application, or refusal of the in­ sured to cooperate with the Company's defense of a claim against him. No wonder Allstate writes more auto liability insurance than any other company in the world! \May we help you?\ I Vbu're In good hands with ALLSTATE* FOUNDED 8Y SEARS AUTO INSURANCE ALLSTATE INSURANCE COMPANIES • HOME OFFICES!
