,1 Students Aid 'Miss Liberty' Students at the Lura Sharp Elementary School know that liberty is not something one can get for free. With that thought in mind, the students have been conducting a project of citizenship and patriotism, raising money to restore the Statue of Liberty.

Mr. Frank Johnson' sixth- graders decided to go another route. They conducted a slave market which consisted of hiring out to do odd jobs, such as yard work, and donating the money earned to the fund. The project will climax oh Flag Day, June 14, when in addition to the annual parade, Miss Liberty, a friend of Sue Ramer, will appear as guest speaker. The money raised will be sent to. the Statue of Liberty Ellis Island Foundation, for their restoration project.

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 2-5 Pulaski VFC Griff Jones '# <* ^ Students and teachers got a good look at the New York State Police {Aviation Department's helicopter when it 'dropped in' at the Pulaski \ High School on May 7. The visit was part of an informational program | that included an assembly. \The hand that rock the cradle is the hand that rules the world.\ William Ross Wallace Planning to cruise coastal this season? Then take heed! The Coast Guard reports that most calls for tows involve engine failure. Among the major causes of engine failure (other than an inability to read a fuel gauge) are plugged fuel filters. Filters that have been working fine for a long time in placid inland waters suddenly plug solid when the motion of the sea stirs up the rust and gunk that have been resting quietly at the bottom of the tank. Spare filter elements are a must and complete filters mounted and rigged for instant bypass are ideal. Anyone who has never been seasick should try changing the filter on a hot diesel as the vessel rolls in a moderate seaway. Diesels usually need to be re-primed as a result of this procedure, and that is not a very enjoyable task either. If you are lucky, you may get a warning clue of steadily dropping power before total failure occurs. That's the time to make the bypass switch or to shut her down for the unpleasantness. You may save the priming job. Another reason for plugged filters in diesels is algae growth. If there is water in the tank, algae can feed on the diesel fuel at the interface of water and diesel, creating a mat of slime. Agitation allows this mat to be broken up and sucked into the filter. There are chemicals that will prevent algae build-up, but be careful. Some will destroy the elements in Racor filter. (Special chemicals are now available for the filters.) The answer, of course, is to be prepared. If you are planning an offshore run, why not take ad- vantage of the peace and quiet of your marina to install a fresh element in the filter. You may be glad you did. GRIFF JONES Miss Porter win sing \Amazing Grace\ in the talent category of the 22nd Annual Hemisphere Pageant, held at the Penta Hotel.

From Page One Education policy on, \Corporal Punishment.\ Following executive session discussion, the resignation of Diana S. Strablow as special education teacher, effective Sept. 1, 198S, was accepted and a part- time position for a reading teacher was authorized. The salary schedules for personnel not determined by the Taylor Law Contracts were also approved. Several staff members appeared before the Board to discuss the objectives in the areas of library media services; health activities; and counseling psychological services, and to report on how those objectives were being met. Included were high school librarian Shelley Blodgett; school nurse Nancy Dingman; guidance counselors, Andrew Pierce and Justine Hammond (elementary); and, James Maroney, school psychologist. A letter sent to Mr. Quimby and the Board members by the 3rd Grade Local History group was also discussed. The five children in the group have discovered that the outside plaques bearing the names of those responsible for the construction of the 1929 high school are badly weathered. They have suggested that a new listing be installed, inside the building similar to the more recent building project plaques already in place. Q. I have recently moved.
