The Pack barked on an educational program on the care and treatment of animals. Ann Stanwell and Emily Cobb of Neck Path entertained some 100 friends at their annual daffodil party on Sunday. Still primarily a social affair among a myriad of spring blossoms, the party this year was given a dual purpose by the presence of two non-descript canine waifs recently rescued by the hostesses from a desolate beach on the “beautiful but impoverished” island of Vieques off the coast of Puerto Rico. Voluntary contributions from caring guests will support the newly-formed Vieques Animal Refuge which was organized by Americans and has em­ Committee Question Whatever happened to the Springs Citizens Planning Committee appoint­ ed by the Town Board in December, 1976, “to study the relationship of the Town Comprehensive Plan to existing development in Springs and to other­ wise assist in planning studies for the area?” The Committee had met regularly throughout the year, devoting most of its time to the Peter Wolf study and report entitled “Historic, Cultural, and Recreational Resources Planning and Implementation Program for Springs.” With information culled from the public and from its own subcommittee re­ ports, a final report was prepared and submitted to the Planning Board and Town Board one year later, December, 1977. It had completed its assignment except for proposals for the community center which were incomplete for lack of time. In the meantime, some of the business people of Springs had pro­ tested plans proposed in the Wolf report regarding their properties, and had met directly with the planners to settle their differences. Reportedly those differences had been resolved to the satisfaction of the business com­ munity. In December the Committee was disbanded with only two of its mem­ Burglary Alleged Shingles bers agreeing to serve on a new Committee for 1978, if and when it were formed. Intermittent inquiries of the planners’ and Councilman's offices have drawn assurances that planning for the future of Springs is not dead, but no new Committee has been appointed and no official response to the Citizens Committee’s report has been made public. According to Councilwoman Mary Fallon, who was questioned Tuesday on the fate of the Committee, the subject will be raised at this week’s Town Board meeting. She had sup­ posed, she said, that Supervisor Ronald Rioux had been working on the composition of a new Committee. Six members of the East Hampton Town Police Department and a Long . Island State Park Police Officer ar­ rested two persons Tuesday at Nap- eague in a house near the ocean beach which police said the two had entered illegally. Third graders at the Springs School in Mrs. Allene Talmage’s and Hugh King’s classes attended a performance of the Ringling Brothers Circus at Madison Square Garden, New York, on April 20. Mrs. Talmage’s class recently com­ pleted a study of Israeli culture, with Miss Carol Horowitz, a student-teacher from Southampton College, teaching folk dancing and reading folk tales. A Passover seder concluded the course. The defendants, Hermes A. Medina, 30, of 127 West 72nd Street, New York, and Jose Louis Maldonado, 21, of Columbus Avenue, New York, were each charged with two counts of burglary third-degree, felonies, and one count of possession of burglar tools. Police said they were alerted to the incident by Steve Sheades, a mechanic at DiSunno Motors in Amagansett, who had spotted a Fiat pull down a dirt road south of Route 27, and west of Whaler’s Lane, and notified police at about 3:30 p.m. Officers Sam Mezynieski and Denis Dunn were the first on the scene, later followed by Town Chief John Henry Doyle, Sergeant Fred Notel, Captain David Fithian, Officer Van Quick, and Long Island State Park Officer Tony Miklas. Found At Scene Chief Doyle said yesterday that Officers Mezynieski and Dunn, after checking out the Fiat, went down the road where they saw one of the men trying to jimmy the door and later enter through a window of the E. Whitney house at the corner of Shad Road and the dirt road. When the second man followed, the Officers challenged the two, telling them they were under arrest, the Chief said. When they did not come out, the policemen went in. The two were found hiding on the second floor, Mr. Mal­ donado in a steamer trunk under a pile of clothes, the Chief said. He added that the burglar tools were found on the porch, and that a second house, belonging to “a Mrs. Ross,” had also been entered. Both men were taken into custody and were to have been arraigned before Town Justice Joseph Duffy yesterday afternoon. In other action involving the Town Department, Police said they expected to solve soon an alleged theft of a truck and subsequent accident in Springs last Friday evening. The investigation began when Ser­ geant Notel and Officer Bert Ryan found an unoccupied 1974 Ford pickup truck that had struck a tree at the intersection of Hog Creek and King’s Point Roads at about 10 p.m. that day. The truck’s owner, Arthur Schomber of 4 Folkestone Road, Springs, told police that he had left the vehicle in his Texture David Rattray driveway, and that someone had stolen it. Near the Schomber house was found an unregistered 1965 Dodge pickup truck later determined to be the property of Richard Vrana of 396 Three Mile Harbor Road. Checking the Vrana residence, police found a 1967 Ford truck stuck in the roadway about 100 yards off Three Mile Harbor Road. A search of the Vrana’s Nursery office revealed, police said, that it had been entered and a search made for vehicle keys. Subsequently, Anthony Zucco, of 2 Folkestone Road, said someone had taken a chisel from the glove compart­ ment of his 1978 Ford and had ruined the starter switch. There were only two reported arrests last week on charges of driving while intoxicated. Francis Ciambra, 18, of 15 Bryce Avenue, Glen Cove, was so charged last Saturday night by Officer Ryan on Route 27, Montauk, and a similar charge was brought against Robert Lee Soloff, 28, of 2940 North Course Drive, Pompano Beach, Fla., and 140-66 Burden Crescent, Jamaica, last Friday night in Montauk. Into Door Police said that Mr. Soloff was arrested after the 1976 AMC Hornet he was driving traveled partially through the glass front door of John’s Drive-In on Main Street, Montauk, at about 9 p.m. A customer, Robert J. Anderson of 218 Ontario Avenue, Massapequa, was struck by flying glass, but declined medical attention, police said. Mr. Soloff was charged with driving while intoxicated (drugs). He was later released in $100 bail, as was Mr. Ciambra. In other arrests last week, David J. Prochilo, 18, of 949 Pacific Street, Baldwin, was charged on Sunday with driving while his license was sus­ pended, and Warren Kucker Jr., 19, of 4 Oaks Cottages, Montauk, was charg­ ed on Tuesday, April 25, with a number of traffic violations, including driving without a license an unregistered, un­ insured and uninspected vehicle with improper plates. Mr. Kucker was released in $200 bail; Mr. Prochilo, in $50 bail.
