n T^ihmrv S T A R VOL. XXXIII EAST H AM PTO N, N. Y „ JU L Y 12, 1918 NO. 34 SERVICE MEN’S CLUB OPENS Rummage Sale, on Tuesday, Nets Club $200 Over E igh ty M e n in U n iform Fed at The C a n teen on the Fourth There could not have been a m o re appropriate day than the Fourth on which to open the clu b fo r Soldiers and Sailors. It had been the desire o f the com m ittee in charge to open at an earlier date, but on a c c o u n t o f the scarcity o f labor it was im p o s ­ sible to com p lete the alterations n e c ­ essary and get in the furnishings as originally anticipated. The recrea­ tion room s w e r e fu ll all day long with the com p a n y o f men from Camp Upton, units o f the State Guard ,and the fe w w h o had “ liberty” from the Naval Base and A ir Station at M on- tauk. The piano and pool table per­ formed their fu n c t ion s alm o s t unceas­ ingly, and the canteen did a “ land office” business though it m u st n o t be understood that exhorbitant prices are charged these m en who have en­ listed fo r the sake o f D e m o cracy. It is the pride o f the canteen that it’s bill o f fa r e is dem o c ratic in price while the m en say that the “ chow ” is aristocratic in quality. A night’s lodging costs a soldier or sailor thirty-five cents and this in­ cludes a cup o f coffee and bread and butter in the m o rning. Five cents each is charged fo r cereals, eggs et cetera. The canteen is open fo r reg­ ular service on Saturdays and Sun­ days from noon until 10 p. m., when m a n y different dishes can be had at cost price. E ighty men w e r e fed during the day on the Fourth and the U p ton boys w e re sent off a fter a good supper, late that night. The sixteen fu lly equipped hospital beds, which w ere donated by one party, have had considerable use already and seem to be the ch ief attraction am o n g s t the men despite the canteen, pool, m u sic and other am u sem ents and com forts at their disposal. The club opens each day at 8 a. m., and closes at 11 p. m ., on Sat­ urdays it rem a ins open until m id­ night, and on ,n igh ts when there is to be a dance or other well recognized party which a num b e r o f m en wish to attend and then return here fo r the night, it will stay open until 1 a. n1. No civilians w ill be allow e d the priv­ ileges o f the club— it is m e a n t fo r the use o f men in uniform only. It is not a “ hostess house.” A f t e r con ­ siderable investigation o f oth e r clubs and recreation places fo r A r m y and Navy m en, it was fou n d generally that when on “ liberty’ ’they like to have a place to g o w h ere they can en joy pool, m u sic, and reading and writing facilities off by them selves. In very large centers and in the big camps the “ hostess house4* is a n e c ­ essity, fo r that is the on ly place where the m en can m e e t their fam ilies and frien d s and entertain them or be entertained. A good deal o f study was given this thing b e f o r e , it was put into effect and it is u n d e r stood from the m en them s elves that this is just abou t the kind o f place they have been look in g for. On Tuesday a ftern o o n a rum m a g e sale was held at the old barn at the rear o f the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Club, fo r the benefit o f the club. Over tw o hundred dollars was m ade at the sale. This will be added to the treasury o f the clu b and w ill go towards d e f r a y in g the m a n y expenses. The articles sold w e r e collected from all parts o f the tow n , as every fam ­ ily w as asked to con t r ibu t e som e article. T h e r e w e r e pictures, old fu rniture, knick-knacks, and every ar­ ticle im a g inable. N e v e r theless, this proved to be a g o o d w a y to raise the m o n e y n e c e s sary to carry on the club. It is the intent o f the com m ittee tq obtain m e m b e r s o f the clu b from every fam ily in tow n . T h e idea is to m ake the clu b a com m u n ity affair. A place w h e r e every man in uniform whether he be in the village on ly a few hours or over night, w ill feel h im s e lf w e lcom e . The men from the tw o com p a n ies o f the N e w Y o r k State Guard are also w e lcom e to the use o f the club. B u t a strict rule o f allow ing on ly men in uniform to enter the clu b w ill be en f o r c e d , so if you w ish to spend the evening at the club, y o u should at least be w ill­ ing to don y o u r u n iform and thus com p ly w ith the clu b regulations. It is hoped by the com m ittee that the men in the tow n w ill show their appreciation o f this valuable institu­ tion in their m idst by patronising it. A n installation m e e ting o f John H oward P a y n e C o u n c il. Jr. O. U. A. M .j was held in Odd F e llow s ’ Hall at their last m e e ting, W e d n e s d a y eve­ ning, July 3rd. The officers w e r e in­ stalled by D e p u ty Past C o u n c illor Oren C o n v e r s e , of\ S a g H a r b o r . Sev­ eral visitin g m e m b e rs from other lodges w e r e present at the installa­ tion. A f t e r the m e e ting refreshm e n t s were served. Opening of Devon Yacht Club Ima Bird W i n * F irst Race o f the Season Despite the heavy show e r on the aftern o o n o f the Fourth, there was the usual large attendance o f m e m ­ bers and guests at the form a l opening o f the D evon Y a c h t Club. T h e principal event o f the a f t e r ­ noon was the yacht race which was sailed on the custom a r y course in fro n t o f the club. The Inla Bird, ow n e d by H ow a rd W . B e e b e , was the successful one o f those entering the race, w inning by several lengths. The D e v o n Y a cht Club is located on the shores o f G a r d iner’s bay at one o f the m o s t attractive spots along its shores. The w a ter is quite deep at this point and offers an excellent harbor and landing place fo r these sportsm e n . The club ow n s a large dock, which extends out into the w a ter fo r con ­ siderable distance and is directly in fro n t o f the club house. Because o f the heavy storm s and severe w eather this w inter it was necessary fo r the club ow n e rs to practically rebuild the entire dock, this spring. A f t e r the excitin g yacht race the guests and m e m b ers en joyed danc­ ing and refreshm e n t s, served at the clu b house.

These two m en are Charles Topping, o f Springs, and Thom as Pidgeon, o f Sag H a rbor. B y giving a little o f their tim e and detective w o r k on the case Officers G a y and K elsey first obtained the know ledge that the w ire had been re­ m oved from Prom ised Land by boat as the m arkings o f the boat’s land­ in g w e r e plainly visible on the beach. On going to the bottom o f the case they discovered that one, David Les­ ter, w h o lives near D evon, carted the w ire fo r these tw o thiefs to Sag\ H a r­ bor, w h ere it was sold to tw o junk dealers, nam e ly Julius Cohen and Is- adore Zish, both o f Sag H a rbor. H ere these tw o dealers stripped the w ire o f its insulation and cu t it up into lengths so that it w o u ld fit into a barrel. It was then m arked and shipped to N ew Y o r k as old brass. F o r this copper w ire, which origin­ ally cost the com p a n y seven hundred dollars, but at this tim e is easily w o rth a thousand, T o p p ing and Pid­ geon received only fifty-tw o dollars. A n attem p t is now being m ade to im p licate the parties at the other end w h o accepted the stolen stuff.
