STATE AND COUNTY CO-OPERATE IN TOWN DRAINAGE PROBLEMS Huntington Taxpayers To Receive Tens Of Thou- sands Of Dollars In Out- side Hel p. Supervisor Joseph Cermak re- vealed this week that both the State of New York and the County of Suffolk are co-operating with the Town of Huntington In the solution of the Town ' s drainage problems. The State Department of Public Works has notified Supervisor Cermak of its intention to acquire two parcels of land In the Town- ship for the purpose of construct- ing recharge basins. On the west side of Elwood Hoad north of Jericho Turnpike, the State proposes to acquire a parcel of 4.63 acres in an effort to relieve the serious drainage situation at Elwood Koad and the Turnpike. The State also proposes to acquire a parcel of land 1.86 acres In size at the northwest corner of Cold Spring Hills Road and the Jericho Turnpike , in order to build a recharge basin that will relieve the drainage situation at Hartman Hill Hoad and the Turnpike. In a letter to Mr. Cermak, M. E. Goul , District Enginee r for the State , requested the co-operation of the Town Planning Board and the Building Department and indi- cated a request that building per- mits in the area of the two pro- posed improvements be held up pending acquisition of the property. The County of Suffolk proposes to acquire an acre and a half of property north of / the Jericho Turnpike and east of Jones Lane (in the Hlllcrest Homes area) to alleviate a bad dralnage ' conditlon. Supervisor Cermak was obvious- ly pleased with the co-operation of both State and County bodies in helping Huntington with the solu- tion of one of its most pressing and expensive undertakings. He said it would save Town of Hunt- ington taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars. The Town Engineer ' s office re- vealed yesterday that It is now planning, acquiring land for or actually building soma 35 recharge basins , in Huntington -Township.

Sept. 15; Two Reg istration Days. A new vote on whether or not the Elwood School District shall construct a new $1 , 500 , 000 school was called this week for Septem- ber 35 by the Board of Education of District No. '1. On August 11 the same proposition was put be- fore the voters of the district and mustered a majority of 207 Lo 157 , but fell short of the two-thirds vote legally necessary because of the ratio of the district' s bonded debt to Its assessed valuation of $1 , 500, - 00O. According to an announcement by Marshall 1). J. Smith , president of the Elwood School Board , the September 15 election will be held at the new Elwood School on Cuba Hill Road , from 2 P.M. until 10 P.M. A brief meeting to comply with legal technicalities will be held at 1:30 o ' clock. All these qualified voters who were registered in person for the elections of May 1 or August 11 , need hot register again , but other qualified voters of the dis- trict may register on either Sep- tember 8 or 10 from 2 P.M. to 10 P.M. in the new Cuba Hill School auditorium. The proposal to bond for the new\ school mimes the site as the Botsch property on the south side of Little Plains Road , tho purchase of which was authorized by the district at the August 11 election. The tract consists of 15 acres; v Board members feel that the light vote on tho previous date was due to the fact that fow people understood that more than a simple majority was needed to carry the appropriation. The members of the Board are Mr. Smith , Herman Mahler , Joseph Byrne , William Carroll , and Edward Jablonskl . Allen Taney is clerk to the Board.

The favorable rate at which County Treasurer Fred 13, Hose Is selling $9 , 260 , 000 of • Suffolk public improvement bonds Is p roof of the county ' s \ progiess and prudence under lleptibllcan officials , \ R. Ford Hughes , Re- publican chairman of Suffolk, i stated this week. Mr. Hughes said the bonds were sold to the Security National liank of Huntington and the First National City Bank of New York and carried tho low interest rate of 2.»5 per cent. The statement: \The purpose for which the bonds were Issued show that tho Hoard of Supervisors is made up of men alive to and aware of the County ' s growing ' demands. '•Public offlcals recommended to the people by tli o Republican Par- ty and selected by the voters are responsible for the good manage- ment -of the county. State Demo- cratic officials , goaded by Tam- many ' s deslro to extend its par- ilsanshlp Into Now York City ' s suburban area , J jave been conduct- ing an attack on Republican offi- cials in Suffolk County. Die financial figures recently made public by County Treasurer Hose, and tho recent acts of the Hoard of Supervisors reveal the Democratic criticism for what it ¦s , narrow partisan politics. \Suffolk' s financial position Is so sound that the bonds sold to the Security National Dank ' of Huntington and the First National City Bank ot New York carried a premium of $53 , 698. The low in- terest rate of 2.95% further at- tests to the excellent financial rating of the county. Wo must\ re- member that every major bank and Investment house was offer- ed an opportunity to bid on our bonds. . The two largest bond Issues were for the construction and equipment of the now county office building at Itlverhead $5 , - 130 , 000. and the construction of the Smith Point Bridge ?2 . 143 . 000.
