NATIONAL EDITORIAL ASS SUSTAINING MEMBER ^OC^TlgN' His Luck Held During last Friday morning's brief, but dangerous, road condi­ tions, cars crept along the Saw Mill River Parkway at a snail's pace, compared to usual speeds. As cars going south approached the slight rise south of Chappaqua, drivers were aware that something was amiss beyond the rise, for no cars were coming north and the south line was slowing down. Per­ haps an accident; perhaps cars sidewise on the road. Who could tell? But one driver was unconcerned. He wanted to get where he was going—as did the others—but quicker. So he turned out of the double line of cars, crossed the double white line, and started to pass every other car, not by trav­ eling in the third lane, but in the fourth lane. His luck held. No car came overj the rise because the cars travel- 1 ing north were slipping and sliding and making no progress on an as yet unsanded road just over the crest. But had one, or two, come over, anything might have hap­ pened, with any of the double line of cars involved in the aftermath of a head-on collision. Of such impatience and careless ness are accidents made. In such situations do good drivers become the innocent victims of horrible accidents. We were too far back,, in the line of cars, to see the license number. But we believe heedless drivers like this one should be re­ ported, and that appropriate rep­ rimand from the police should fol­ low. Perhaps warnings from the law would add a small measure of protection to all those drivers who are becoming increasingly ap­ prehensive of highway travel. Your Turn Now Organizations — espe­ cially those that keep the young­ sters interested and occupied—are a valuable part of community life. And not the least of these is the first step in Scouting, the Cub Scout packs. But one of Chappaqua's several Cub Scout groups is faced with the question of whether it can keep going. The reason? Not lack of interest on the part of the more-than-thirty pack members, but lack of grown-ups to supervise and guide their activities. The present cubmaster and his wife, a den mother, are leaving Chappaqua. Although most of the parents have been contacted, none will volunteer for these or other committee posts. But all the par­ ents are, no doubt, eager to have their boys continue in Scouting. It is the old, old story in or­ ganizations. Many are enthusiastic, few will take responsibilities and actually dig in and do the work. Someone else can always do it. Cub Scouting is a fine thing for eight to eleven-year-olds in what might be called their formative years. It is an interest parents should encourage, but not with the selfish interest of simply having others take care of the boys for a few hours. Parents of Cubs should, we feel, take inventory of the de­ mands on their time and see if they can't assume some of the not-too-arduous chores others have been performing. It is one thing to taxi your son to a den mother; it is quite another to open your house to the den. Should Ring a Bell Grievance Day for the taxpay­ ers of the Village of Mount Kisco, comes this year on Tuesday, Feb. 18 between the hours of 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. In this interval, prop­ erty, owners will be interviewed by the Board of Assessor and the Village Board, sitting as a Board of Appeals, with regard to any questions or protests which they might have in connection with the tax assessment for the new fiscal year. For those who wish to protest the assessment roll, which was filed Saturday in the office of the Village Clerk, a form must be filed out and brought to the Grievance Day hearing. These forms may be procured any work­ ing day in the office of the Vil­ lage Clerk. Grievance Day should ring* anoth­ er bell in the minds of certain voters, denied the privilege of vo­ ting in the Village Referendum in October, which expressed the will of the people in hiring a Village Manager in the immediate future. Many persons found that their property was listed in the name of a deceased former owner, or some other irregularity existed, which had not been corrected on the tax roll. This precluded voting Boy Scouts, on 48th Birthday, Begin National Safety Good Turn Letters to the Editor OFFICIAL BOY SCOUT WEEK POSTER More than 4,700,000 Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Explorers, and adult leaders throughout the nation will observe Boy Scout Week, February 7 to 13, marking the 48th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. Boy Scout Week sees the launching of a yearlong Safety Good Turn suggested by Pres­ ident Eisenhower, Honorary President of the Boy Scouts of America. In cooperation with other or­ ganizations giving leadership in safety, the Scouts will promote traffic safety in March, April, and May; outdoor safety in June, July, and August; and home safety in September, October, and November. Boy Scout Week Launches Yearlong Safety Program in the referendum. And loud were the wails! If you have no other protest than the correction of this mishap, get into the Village Clerk's office with the deed to your property or such records as may be neces­ sary, to supply the Village Clerk's office-with the aumordty.'for^a.xor- rection. Mount Kisco may never hold another referendum, but for the sake of your heirs, make this simple record correct and save them trouble. And speaking of heirs, how about your will? If you die in­ testate your relatives can shell out all you may leave them in legal fees and litigation. And wouldn't it be kinder, to let them know just what you want done with your possessions? How about U. S. Government Bonds, which may also bear the name of some­ one now deceased—or divorced— or no longer in need. Are these person's names still on those bonds you one owned jointly? It will all add up to confusion and maybe cussin' after you are gone, 'cause you can't take it with you! Let Grievance Day find all this \unfinished business,\ which to be sure has nothing to do with you tax protest, out on your desk for immediate attention. A Worthy Good Turn —A WORTHY—18 pt ital _ H24 _ The Boy Scouts of America ob­ serves its 48th anniversary during Boy Scout Week, Feb. 7 to 13, by launching a yearlong nationwide Good Turn. The Safety Good Turn, undertaken at the suggestion of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, will find 4,700,000 boys and leaders engaged in promoting traffic safe­ ty, outdoor safety, and home safe­ ty. We are accustomed to great achievements from our Boy Scouts. Their outstanding work in the 1952 and J956 Get-Out-the-Vote campaigns, their Conservatljn Good Turn in 1954, their collection of nearly two million items of clothing, foodstuffs, and supplies for the needy in 1934, and other activities in behalf of their fellow Americans have given us approxi­ mately twenty million past and present Boy Scouts who have learned the real meaning of serv­ ice. Calling the Safety Good Turn \an opportunity for service to your country in the highest tradi­ tion of the Boy Scouts of Ameri­ ca,\ President Eisenhower said, \I urge you to adopt Safety as your service project for 1958. Through the concerted action of your members, and in cooperation with other organizations, you can alert the public to the urgent need for reducing the tragic toll* of ac­ cidents.\ We congratulate the Boy Scouts on past achievements and wish them well as they undertake this great public service to the com- 'munity, state, and nation.

' ' The 4,700,000 boys and leaders of the Boy Scouts of America will launch a year long National Safety Good Turn during Boy Scout Week, Feb. 7 to 13. The Scouts' national service project was suggested by Presi­ dent Dwight D. Eisenhower, Hon­ orary President of the Boy Scouts. In a White House message, President Eisenhower told the Scouts: \In our land each individual is of inestimable worth, yet in no other land do accidents cause a more terrible loss of human life and limb. This fact cannot be pas­ sively accepted. We must seek new ways to save the basic re­ sources of our Nation: its people. \EncQuraged by the splendid re­ sults of your Conservation Good ^mHoxiriy&df^^i&i I now urge you to adopt Safety as your serv­ ice project for 1958. Through the concerted action of your mem­ bers, and in cooperation with other organizations, you can alert ttie public to the urgent need for re­ ducing the tragic toll of accidents. \This is an opportunity for serv­ ice to your country in the highest tradition of the Boy Scouts of America.\ School Menus The three menus to be served next week in the cafeteria of the Fox Lane School are as follows: 4 Monday hot lunch: orange juice, baked beans with bacon, slaw sal­ ad, buttered bread, cookies and milk.

The Scouts' National Safety Good Turn is being coordinated nationally and locally with other safety programs and campaigns. National safety organizations have advised and assisted Scout lead­ ers in developing plans and proj­ ects. During March, April, and May, the projects will involve traffic safety. Outdoor safety projects will keep Scouts busy in June, July, and August. Home safety will be featured in September, Oc­ tober, and November. Next October, the Boy Scouts will distribute to approximately 35,000,000 homes a civil defense booklet on family preparedness for emergencies. Garden Club The Conservation and Nature Study Group of the Chappaqua Garden Club will meet Tuesday at 10 a. m. a t the home of Mrs. Lawrence Rice, Hillholme. Mrs. Murray MacDonald will be in charge of the meeting. The January meeting of the House Plant Group was held Jan. 28 at the home of Mrs. Elmer Sanders, of 154 Devoe Road. Richard Langfelder of Bedford Rd. spoke on the propagation and care of house plants, explaining the different methods of propaga­ tion for a variety of plants. He also outlined various soil mixtures and gave some useful hints on keeping house plants happy. Men In Service . ARMY NURSE ASSIGNED —Army Nurse (Capt.) Filomena A.

Travelling Conditions May Delay School Opening 1 Hour Dear Editor, Thank you very much for giv­ ing our news about the inter­ change of the kindergarten class­ es your prompt attention.. It is always a great help to us when school news appears in your pa­ per. ' Attached you will find a copy of the letter that was sent home to each family yesterday. How­ ever, as sometimes these letters do become lost or mislaid by ei­ ther parent or child, I wonder if it would be possible to have you include the information in a near issue of The Northern Westches­ ter Times. Thank you very much for your cooperation. Dear Parents: When dangerous roads warrant it, the opening time of school may be delayed one hour. That is, our school - opening will occur at 9:35 instead Of 8:35. Buses will run: one hour later than the scheduled time. WVJP will announce this de­ layed opening. The fire siren will ring 6 three times. ; In the event that weather and, roads are so bad that an hour's delay will find the roads no more safe, the school will close for the whole day as it has in the past. This will be announced over radio station WVI and WOR. The fire signal will blow 9 three times. Cordially yours, Charlotte M. West, principal Tax Advantage\ Has Its Limits The New Castle Tribune Chappaqua New York Dear Editor: The furor over rates for our gar­ bage collection brings to mind the time a few years ago when there was active competition in the ren­ dering of this service. I understood that exclusive rights were then gi­ ven to one firm to serve the area. This was supposed to be more ef­ ficient by cutting out duplication of service. In current discussions of the matter, I don't recall seeing the suggestion offered that we now re­ turn to individual contracts with collectors allowed to compete in their rates. If nobody were then to offer the service at less than present rates, how could rates be reduced if the town were to take over the service? It is true, of course, that the cost of a service offered by the town becomes deductible on income tax payments. This is enticing, of course, but it raises the question of where this form of \advantage\ would eventually find its limits? Should we adopt the same plan for our food costs, clothing, hous­ ing, etc.? The ultimate end of that road becomes the communal state, as in the USSR, and it be­ hooves us to draw a line some-_ where if that kind of a society is not to be our destiny. Where should the' line be drawn? Sincerely, F. A. Harper Dear Editor: (the writer of the following let­ ter is the dental hygiene teacher of Bedford Central School District 2) There's a story about a drunk who stomped into a bar shouting, \I can lick anybody in the world\. No one looked up. Breathing hard- he shouted louder, \I can lick any­ body in this whole town!\ Mild interest. \I can lick anybody in this room!\ bellowed the drunk. Whereupon he was embroiled in a free-for-all, the outcome of which is not recorded, the moral of the tale being of course, that it is' only \as one cuts a problem down to size that it becomes of great interest. I feei this way about National Dental Health Week, currently be­ ing observed throughout the coun­ try. When we hear figures -about 90 per cent of Americans suffering from dental caries it is not as vivid as knowing that 70 per cent of the five-year-olds who began kindergarten last fall in Mount Kisco have had one or more cav­ ities in their teeth These children are real to us, and the fact that they are so susceptible to a cer­ tain disease raises the question— What do we do about it? Can we do anything more than we are doing? A year ago last October the Vil­ lage Board after studying all the facts and holding anjopen meeting decided to fluoridate the public water supplies of the village. So far this most effective and safe public health measure has not been carried through. Why? And why do not .the parents demand why? Fluoridation of the water will stem the tide of wholesale cavities which any dentist among us will gladly tell you he can't keep up with. What other measures are available? Limiting sweets Consumption of sugar has risen from 8 lb. per capita to 100 lb. per capita in the last century. Teeth at least really were better in the good old days. Dental Care You don't get your money's worth from your family dentist unless you visit him regu­ larly, once or twice a year for a checkup according to your fam­ ily's need. Brushing teeth The modern method is to brush right after meals, not \when you get up and before bed\. Be critical of advertising. There is no chewing gum which cleans teeth. One tooth paste is not bet­ ter than another. No paste or pow­ der has a magic formula. One brushing with Glemo will not last all day—don't we wish it would! There's plenty to be done for National Dental Health Week if we make it local dental health week instead. Here's a sample memorandum for parents: Call Dr. Blank for the appoint­ ment Johnny should have had last July. Resist the temptation to keep the children under control in the A&P by buying them chewing gum. Make a list of 20 shacks the children enjoy which don't? con­ tain rsugac {you -.might start off with carrot sticks, popcorn, potato chips) Brush your own teeth right after dinner tonight (children learn much more by example than by nagging) Call your favorite Village Trus tee and ask him why no water fluoridation up to now. Happy Dental Health Week! Shirley E. Webster, Stanwood Local Radio Observes147th Horace Greeley Anniversary The- 147tth anniversary of Hor­ ace Greeley on Feb. 3 was com­ memorated in this area on the preceding day in a radio broad­ cast from station WVTP in Mount Kisco, The hour-long presentation, sponsored by Squire's and the Old Colony Shop in Chappaqua, was, at the request of the sponsors, free of commercials except at the intro­ duction and the conclusion of the program. 1 The life of \That Man Greeley\ Whose name -appears at almost every turn in the Chappaqua area, was dramatized from the time, he arrived in New York at the age of 20 as a journeyman printer with $10 in his pocket, to his later years in Chappaqua, when his ca­ reer was marked by political strife. \He loved the little farm in Chappaqua above all else,\ the script told the audience. Greeley's many contributions' to the field of journalism, as well as his many personal attributes, shown through the framework of the story, which was interspersed with appropriate music. To Gre­ eley the \joy of working for^ an ideal was ..the joy of living, ' He relished challenge, controversy and conversation and established a reputation as a man of genius. The New York Tribune, which he established,. was a platform from which he could speak to the peo­ ple, and he spoke freely, giving the art of editorial writing purpose and character. This, .and much more of the famous man's life reached the Sunday afternoon audience. The script, which was written and produced by Tom Paris, will be available as a tape recording for organization use. A transcrip­ tion bf the program is being pre­ sented to the sponsors. Ed Robbihs was narrator for the story, while Morton Dean read some of Greeley's sayings. Songs were by John Allison, the Mer­ rill Jay group and the Gateway Singers. Instrumental music was by Norman Cazden, Richard Shores and Leonard Bernstein. New Books NEW BOOKS AT THE CHAP­ PAQUA LIBRARY, Feb. 3. FICTION: The Winthrop Woman, Anya Se- ton.

George Leffort USMC, son of Mrs. Gertrude Leffort of Grove Street, arrived home last Tuesday night for a 80-day furlough. Cpl. Leffort returned -after two years service in the Far Eastern Com­ mand, part of which was spent on Korea and the latter part in Japan at the Yokosuka Naval Base in Tokyo. Following his furlough he will report to the U. S. Naval base in Brooklyn to serve out the un­ expired portion of a four-year en­ listment. 25 Years Ago In Mt. Kisco Women s Exchange to Aid In Unemployment Relief Incorporation papers have been taken out by the Women's Ex­ change of Northern Westchester. The enterprise aims at an informal and unofficial' aid in the problem of unemployment relief. The ma­ nagers feel that there is a c distinct field for this type of organization in this part of the county. They believe it will not only offer the woman who can. do fine sewing or exceptional cooking an outlet for her work but it will give the woman who has not the time nor ability for this sort of work an opportunity to acquire except­ ional things. The exchange plans that its activities shall coyer the villages of Mount Kisco, Chappa­ qua, Pleasantville and Briarcliff, but for the, present its only shop will be located in Pleasantville. According to an announcement made this-week by the StateTarmj better known as. the State Reform­ atory for Women at Bedford.Hills; J it will become the principal wo­ men's prison of the state on or about July 1 when all female pri­ soners from Auburn Prison will be transferred to the Bedford insti­ tution. According to a notice of bank­ ruptcy filed by the Whippoorwill Corporation, Chappaqua real es­ tate developing company, the lia­ bilities _of the concern are $1,162,- 324 while the assets have been given as $593,728. ' The drive inaugurated last week by the newly formed Citizens' Vol­ unteer Relief Committee to raise a fund to give employment to \un­ attached\ men of the Town of New Castle got off to a-good start. Twenty-five were given work last, week • and. an equal number are employed this week on the Horace • Greely High School grounds and in Chappaqua. School Menus Menus to be served in the four Elementary Schools of Bedford District No. 2 for the week of Feb. 10 are as follows: Monday: orange juice, baked beans with bacon strips, slaw salad, buttered bread, cookies and milk. Tuesday: beef stew with vege­ tables, buttered bread, jello and milk. Wednesday. NO SCHOOL. Lin­ coln's Birthday. Thursday: tomato juice, ham­ burger on roll, potato chips, green salad, banana and milk. Friday: fruit juice, creamed tuna and peas on rice, buttered whole wheat bread, Valentine cake and milk.

Harther Jr., president bf the Adoption Service of Westchester Inc., announced to­ day that funds are in hand for the 1958 budget and that the $135,- 000 fund raising campaign for 1359 will start in April of this year, Previously the general mail soli­ citation has been held in the fall. \A change in the campaign date is required to allow time for plan­ ning services for the - following year and to insure the availabil­ ity of adequate funds,\ Mrs. Harther explained. \Only one open solicitation will be held during the year.\ Mrs. Harther said that the agen­ cy is taking children under its care must know that the neces-. sary funds are available to care for- the child properly until place­ ment can be made, and that: one year's supervision is required af­ ter placement before the adoption becomes legal. The number of children, coming to the agency for placement, in adoptive homes has far - exceed­ ed expectation. Mrs. Harther 're­ ports that the service placed-37 children in adoptive homes i fi'this county in 1956. In 1957, the num­ ber increased' to 68 children. Be­ cause of the constantly growing number who. come, to ,*the service; for adoption planning, the agency finds the budget' must be in­ creased.

It was revealed that under the current coverage there was no compensation alloted for a fire man who- was injured on duty while out of work. An editorial entitled \The Dol­ lars That Loaf\ commented on the fact that while taxable prop­ erty in Westchester had grown by only $20,000,000, tax exempt prop­ erty in the county grew more than $15,000,000. The editorial asked for a scrutiny of every tax exempt parcel on the rolls of Westchester, stating that, while many of them were legitimately exempt, there also existed a \twilight zone\ in which the assessor had discretion­ ary powers. Announcement was made of the uniting of the Westchester County Children's Assn. and the Westches­ ter County Society for the Pre­ vention of Cruelty to Children for administration, financing and program under a joint executive committee. The name chosen for the committee was the Westchester Children's Committee of the Children's Association and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. The WCSPPC is the older organization, estab­ lished in 1881; the WCCA was 1 or­ ganized in 1914 by the late, Mr. and Mrs. V. Event Macy and a small group of citizens. Mrs. John H. Sayres opened her house to the Woman's Neighbor­ hood Club of .New. Castle, and 25 members 'heard Mrs. Rose K. May, an interior decorator,- talk on \Antiques and Their Influence on the People of America\. A let­ ter was read at the meeting from Chief of Police Leslie Romaine, expressing his sincere thanks and appreciation for their assistance in providing food and shelter for the homeless and unemployed men lodged in New Castle during pre­ vious months. A report by J. P. Freeman of Chappaqua was read at the annual dinner of the Fenimore Cooper Council, Boy Scouts of America, held in Pleasantville. Mr. Free­ man, director of professional train­ ing of the national scouting organ­ ization, pointed out that Fenimore Cooper Council membership had shown a gain of more than 200 in the previous year, bringing the enrollment to 1,257. No Tooth Paste Available To Prevent Tooth Decay (Editor's note: This is-the sec­ ond in a series of six articles which the North Westchester Times and the New Castle Trib une are publishing in cooperation with the 9^h District Dental So­ ciety.) Doctor, there are so many tooth pastes. What kind will really do any good? What is the best sort of toothbrush to use? And what about mouthwashes? Don't be misled, dentists say. Most tooth pastes contain the same'basic ingredients. A denti­ frice, whether in paste, powder or liquid form, serves to aid the brush in cleaning, the teeth. It does not do any more than that. Whatever the claims, there are no \miracle\ tooth, pastes. The Council on Dental Therapeutics of the American. Dental Association, evaluating agency-for dental prod-, ucts, reports that it knows of no tooth paste now available that will prevent tooth decay, gum diseases of.bad. breath. » - With the increased emphasis on dental research how taking place in dental schools and research centers over the country, it may be that a truly preventive tooth paste will be developed. Until that thne, however, correct use of the toothbrush immediately after eat­ ing is more; important than use of any single;, tooth paste. Teeth should be brushed right after meals and right after be- tween-meal snacks. If a tooth brush is not available, the mouth should be rinsed with water. Brush 10 Times Generally, speaking, each area should be brushed at least 10 times. Included should be^the toQth surfaces next to the cheeks, those next to the' tongue and the upper and lower chewing surfaces. The upper teeth' should be brush ed downward and the lower teeth upward. As for the kind of toothbrush to use, dentists advise that children should be given smaller brushes than those used by adults. A good brush, they say, should have (1) a flat brushing surface, (2) firm, resilient bristles, and (3) a head small enough to reach all surfaces of the teeth. » On the question of mouthwashes^] dentists point out that the purpose of a mouth!.wash is to help re­ move food particles from the teeth and mouth. Water does a satisfac­ tory-job. Medicated mouthwashes should 6 not be used except when prescribed by a dentist. Dentists strongly recommend that children be, taught 'to. brush their teeth at the right time'and in the right way when the young­ sters are about three years old. Sound .dental.-health-habits in­ grained 1 early in life will help to assure an adulthood largely free of dental crippling. * Next Week: Diet - and Dental Health. .... T Town Talk: Charles F.
