Husband praised; wife indicted Friday, August 16, 1974 ADIRONDACK Daily ENTERPRISE, Saranac Lake, N.Y. Page 7 WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (UPI) — The wife of West- chest er County's welfare commissioner —praised recently for his efforts at rooting out welfare cheats — has been indicted on charges of defrauding the county out of $12,000 in Medicaid assistance for her ailing mother. The woman, Lorraine Ber- man, 55, wife of Westchester Social Services Commissioner Dr., Leonard Berman, was charged with illegally ap- H ?°LL!? e Payments for her mother on Nov. 5, 1971, Westchester District Attorney Carl A. Vergari announced Thursday. Four days earlier, she had transferred an inheritance of $70,000 in cash and other assets from a joint account wSH her mother to her own persona] account, according to Vergari. Mrs. Berman allegedly claimed in papers filed with the welfare department that her mother, Mrs. Edith Levy, then 77, was indigent, except Gov. Rockefeller to replace Ford NEWPORT, R.I (UPI) - Former New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller is slated to replace President Gerald Ford as the guest speaker at a Republican fundraiser Wednesday night. Ford, while he was vice Before washing the frying basket of an electric cooker deep fryer combination, wipe excess grease away with paper towels.

Wright, state GOP chairman said he began seeking Rockefeller after President Ford was forced to cancel. Wright said Rockefellers substitution was not to be taken as an indication that he would be selected as ForcPs vice president. Many persons feel Rockefeller will be the President's choice. The decision is expected to be announced before Wednesday. for a $15O-a-month Social Security stipend. Vergari said Mrs. Levy had received $12,000 in Medicaid payments while a resident of the Sprainbrook Manor Nursing Home in Greenburgh for a period of 14 months. She died in early 1973. At the time, Berman was the $39,510-a-year executive assistant to former County Executive Edwin Michaelian.- Michaelian appointed Berman to the welfare post in April, 1973. Hie position pays an annual salary of $43,865. Last June, Vergari praised Berman for the com- missioner's creation of a \quality-control unit\ to root out welfare cheats. When Berman was asked if he knew about the $70,000 inheritance, he said, \It's in the courts now. Anything you want you'll have to ask her attorney about.\ Vergari said the in- vestigation into Mrs. Ber- man's case was initiated after a complaint was received from former Welfare In- spector General George F. Berlinger. Mrs. Berman pleaded inno- cent at her arraignment in Westchester County Court and was released on her own recognizance. *._% It, LAKE PLACID PRESENTS THIS WEEKEND \A Great Evening of Entertainment!\ OLYMPIC ARENA SUMMER ICE SHOW Saturday Night August 17th - 8:30 P.M. \Amateur Skaters From Around The World\ SOLOS —GROUPS—PAIRS Adults $1.50 - Students $1.00 ; COMING EVENTS AUG. 22-25 Annual Lake Placid Art Show & Sale Sponsored by Lake Placid Hospital Auxiliary AT THE OLYMPIC ARENA AUG. 23-24: U.S.PONY TRIALS At The Horse Show Grounds count 011 us : zzlFbra Used Can You Can Count Oni 73 73 73 73 73 73 73 73 72 72 72 71 71 70 70 '69 '69 '66 CHEVROLET Vega Station Wagon CHEVROLET Impala 4 Dr. H.T.

By George Montgomery> Actor/Custom Furniture Maker USE OF OLD WOOD The furniture buff who spe- cializes in restoring old pieces will soon run into the prob- lem of matching wood when making repairs. Old wood nor- mally should be matched with old wood. This is why I rec- ommend that you become a hoarder of used bits of wood that may someday be useful to your hobby. Vou may well ask: \If I ap- ly a finish to the piece, why not use new wood from the lumber yard?\ Another fre- quently asked question con- cerns the availability of used wood for furniture work. I will answer both these ques- tions, starting with the last one first. There are a number of sources for used wood. One may be your own shop. As you work with furniture you are certain to end up with some spare pieces. For example, you may have replaced table top because It had a bad crack, but that old top may contain some good wood for another purpose. I urge you to store such odd pieces of ber without damaging the ap- pearance of the furniture. There are several reasons for using old wood when re- pairing used furniture. Obvi- ously, when making patches or replacing- parts it is impor- tant to get a good match. This means more than obtaining the same kind of wood with a similar color and grain. It also means getting a match of tex- ture and over-aH appearance. Old wood and new wood take finishes quite different- The stork market scene: One depressant removed Send for my FREE bro- chure filled with tips for the amateur wood finisher.

The porous wood absorbs more of tiie finish you apply, re- sulting in a darker finish. Even if you manage to get a good color match, age pro- duces grain and texture dif- ferences that cannot be matched through the finish- ing process alone. Once you have completed your repair job, with the finish all applied, an application of new enriched Pledge will bring back the original luster of the piece to make it glow like new. This is the easiest part of the job since the formula- tion contains natural waxes that produce results without rubbing.

Malcolm Wilson has hailed the \expeditious handling\ by the U.S. Court of Appeals of an injunction holding up work on a section of the Southern Tier Expressway while admitting the court action will delay construction at least until next spring. The injunction has halted work on a bridge over Chautauqua Lake —a key link in the Southern Tier highway. The court in New York City recently ruled that the hearing could be held after briefs on the injunction are filed Sept. 23. thus moving up from Dec. 2 the scheduled hearing date. The governor, in a statement Thursday, said the project could be reactivated next contraction season if the court ruled that an en- vironmental impact statement was not needed for the bridge. If the court rules in favor of the statement, Wilson said, the required study and report would mean a delay of at least two vears. and declining discretionary purchasing power.\ The firm says if there is any im- provement in the investment situation it is psychological rather than fundamental. But an casing in interest rates \would be both fundamentally and -psychologically bullish,\ it adds. \A resumption of economic growth will be delayed and corporate earnings will decline in 1975, but a decline in interest rates by the November elections could still touch off a major bull market recovery in both the stock and bond markets,\ according to Wright Investors' Service. The Bridgeport, Conn, firm predicts a 20 per cent drop in earnings for the Dow Jones industrial average in 1975 from 1974 results. Investors should maintain \a moderate cash-equivalent reserve position,\ it says. If President Ford does not intend to seek the presidency in 1976, \he may accept the idea that the only cure for inflation is deflation,\ says Fraser Management Associates of Burlington, Vt. 'Perhaps he will not be afraid of a recession, will refuse to jazz up •hpmnnfty supply, and Speed limit, crisis reduce death toll ALBANY, N.Y. (UPI) - Gov. Malcolm Wilson's office says the energy crisis and tbe lower speed limit were major factors in reducing the traffic death toll in the state by 25.7 per cent during the first half of 1974. A statement released Thursday by Wilson's office said 1,125 persons were killed in highway mishaps during the first six months, compared to a total of 1,519 during the first six months of 1973. - The toll in June was 71 fewer than the 283 recorded in June, 1973. the counties with the highest number of fatalities in June were Erie and Suffolk with 18 each.

(UPI) — Vitamin C, teamed with two other common substances, may offer protection against the harmful effects of smoking and heavy drinking, according to a Coatesville Veterans Administration Hospital study. The study team said it has found that Vitamin C, com- bined with Thiamine, or Bl, and cysteine, a common element found in most high protein foods, may combat heart disease and other ill effects of smoking and drinking. \Our findings point the way to a possible buildup of natural protection against chronic body insult from acetaldehyde, which arises from chronic high intake of ethyl alcohol together with heavy smoking,\ said Dr. Herbert Sprince, chief re- searcher of the study team and associate professsor of psychiatry and pharmacology at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Sprince said that during the experiments, laboratory rats were given a combination of the two vitamins and cysteine and then an otherwise lethal dose of acetaldehyde, which has been implicated in heart disease and other medical problems in humans. The combination has \of- fered rats 100 per cent protection against lethal doses of acetaldehyde,\ Sprince said, noting that \more PLAY GOLF at the BEAUTIFUL Craig Wood Golf and Country Club • Golf Cars • Cocktail Lounge • Restaurant \Everything for the Golfer\ Cascade Road Lake Placid -523-9904- animal work is necessary before undertaking con- sideration of a clinical assessment of this interesting finding.\ HOURS TUES.-THURS. 9-1 and 2-5:30 FRI. —9-1 and 2-8 SAT. — 9-12 Closed Monday Now.
