Need a Baby Sitter? Fire Chief Willis Goodrow has called on the public to support the fire commission proposal and give the proposition a favorable vote The fire department is sorely in need of new and larger facilities, he said, adding that firemen are so much in favor of the proposal they will furnish transportation to the polls and even baby sitters-if necessary-during the voting hours Friday; anyone in need of either accommodation, the chief said, should phone MO 6-8253. Chief Goodrow cited several rea­ sons why a new fire house is need­ ed. First and foremost, he said, the present building isn't large enough and, on occasions, firemen have to put their valuable appar­ atus out-of-doors when the appar­ atus room is used for other pur­ poses. There is insufficient stor­ age room in the present building Goodrow added and, to top off all his arguments, the chief said the present two-story frame building is, in itself, a \fire hazard\. \I'm proud of our department and I'm sure everyone in the fire Juvenile Furniture Baby Gifts - Toys - Sleds Sno Coasters ICE SKATES Shot and double runner +yp»» Kiddieland 24'/ 2 E.*Main' Mt.

Many area persons are included in the 70 Westchester residents from 15 different school districts and city systems, co-sponsoring the coming Westchester Citizens' Conference on Education, planned for Saturday, March 22 at Edge- mont High School, Greenburgh School Dist. 6, Scarsdale. The theme is \Are Westchester Citi­ zens Meeting the New Challenges to Education?\ The conference is being held to help those concerned with school afiairs in communities throughout the county to exchange experienc­ es and ideas, so that they can meet local problems more effect­ ively. Invitations to the conference are being extended to teams of six individuals in each school district or system, preferably including a district is proud of it too; I sin­ cerely hope the public will show its gratitude by providing us with a much needed bigger and safer fire house, the chief said. A model of the new fire house together with adjoining structures, has attracted wide attention since being put on display in Bedford Hills Department Store last week. If the fire commission proposition wins voters' approval tomorrow night the new fire station will probably become a reality by April 15 and ready for occupancy by next Fall. school board member, school ad­ ministrator, teacher, PTA mem­ ber, citizens committee member or other lay citizen, to assure widely representative points of view. A senior high school student is also being suggested as a mem­ ber of the ideal team. While the program will reflect some of the new pressures on pub­ lic education resulting from space- age requirements, basic plans for the conference have been devel­ oped over a twelve-month period by a steering committee of West­ chester Citizens and the New York State Citizens Committee for the Public Schools.
