NATIONAL EDITORIAL ASTOCEATIQN s_/ KJ Effort Rewarded The Federated Garden Clubs of CHAP PAGE SIX LM12 EDIT—Effort Rewarded lml2 The Federated Garden Clubs of New York have awarded a bronze medal to the Chappaqua Garden Club for ijs \Plant-a-Dogwood\ drive carried on in the spring of 1956. The medal, given only bi­ ennially for civic improvement, is a cherished award, and the Gar­ den Club is, quite understandably, pleased at such recognition. But the pleasure should go be­ yond the Garden Club, for it is the community that has benefitted. In the \Plant-a-Dogwood\ drive, in which the club urged residents to plant dogwoods to beautify not only their own property but the town as well, the club went be­ yond its own organizational inter­ ests—beyond the flower culture and flower arranging wHioh might rightfully be considered the club's (province. This broadened interest has been typicai of the Chappaqua Garden Club, which has, through the years, sponsored many civic projects designed to beautify the SUSTAINING MEMBER area, at the same time saving the taxpayers' dollars. The plantings at the new Hor­ ace Greeley High School and at the Roaring Brook School, as well as at the Library, the re placement of trees in the village, the plantings at the bridge ap­ proach, at the corner of King St and Allen Place, at the railroad station and at Town Hall, are all to the Garden Club's credit. The money for these projects, raised in the community, has been money spent for other aesthetic enjoy ment—the annual flower shows and plant sales. It has not come from a \drive\, with no recognizable benefits to the individual contnb uting. The Garden Club will not rest on these laurels, but will go on sponsoring projects for commun ity betterment. The members de­ serve praise for their imaginative foresight and industry; they will continue, we hope, to get the full co-operation and support of resi­ dents in whatever they may de­ cide to undertake. Learn the Facts Chappaqua now has two diver­ gent opinions on the future of Nrth Greeley Avenue. The Town Club of New Castle opposes its extension, and the League of Wo­ men Voters of New Castle urges that the extension be accomplished within the next few years. Both views are the result of study of the New Castle Master Plan which will be presented to the community at a meeting next Thursday evening. They are prob­ ably indicative of the divided views on many phases of the plan. Residents will have an oppor­ tunity to hear the plan discussed at this meeting and at subsequent meetings covering details of the proposals. The only way to acquire a basis for an understanding and an in dividual opinion is to become ac­ quainted with the various aspects of the plan through these presenta­ tions by the Planning Board. We urge attendance at next Thursday's meeting; failure to take the trouble to learn about the plan precludes justification of criticism after its adoption. Earns U. S. Recognition John W. Ruger, who has been carrying on a one-man campaign to persuade the Post Office De­ partment to designate Katonah as the point df \First Day of Issue\ of a new stamp honoring John Jay has lost the first round. But he hasn't given up. His campaign took a new lease on life, after the Westchester Board of Supervisors voted to purchase the Jay homestead on Route 22, Bedford, if the State will agree to maintain it as a historic shrine. The homestead on the edge of the community of Katonah, is the one to which John Jay retired in 1801 after serving as the first chief justice of the United States Supreme Court and as governor of New York. He was also the author of the treaty with England which ended the Revolution. In his attempts to persuade the Post Office Department to issue the 15-cent Jay commemorative stamp at Katonah, Mr. Ruger pointed out that Jay and his de­ scendants have lived continuously in the house until only recently. He rejects the Post Office De­ partment's excuse that such stamps are issued from only one place by pointing out that only last Fall two commemorative stamps were issued from more than one place simultaneously: a LaFayette stamp from Fayette- ville, N. C, Easton, Pa., and Lou­ isville, Ky., and a whooping crane stamp issued in New York and Corpus Christi, Texas. The Post Office^. De.g^tment plans-^o issue the^aay stamp* m Washington which Mr. Ruger points out has had its fair share of such issues in recent years. Issuance at Katonah would do a great deal to stimulate public in­ terest in Westchester's rich her­ itage, not only in the county but throughout the State. With the County committed to purchase the historic shrine and legislation pending in Albany au­ thorizing the State to take over and maintain it, Mr. Ruger de­ serves public support in his ef­ forts to persuade the Post Office Department to give Westchester and Katonah the recognition they deserve. 25 Years Ago In Mt. Kisco Mt. Kisco Banks Hold Strict Rules as Holiday Continues Telegrams were received at 8:30 this morning by both Mount Kisco banks extending the bank holiday by order of President Roosevelt one more day. It was believed however that the holiday has been extended indefinitely. According to Charles Brown, president of the Mount Kisco National Bank, the attitude of the people in Mount Kisco and vicinity during the'holi­ day has been admirable. He stat­ ed in an interview with the North Westchester Times reporter this morning, that people have taken the situation as a matter of fact and with a great deal of patience. lage water department of $2,684.83 with a book balance of an addi­ tional $2,736 in unpaid water rents The book profit showing in the water department for the fiscal year ending March 1, 1933 was placed at about $7,500 by the chair­ man of the water committee. Accordftg to Trustee C. B. White, chairman of the commit­ tee on public lighting, he and vil­ lage officials of the Westchester Lighting Company are endeavoring to work out a new plan whereby street light costs in Mount Kisco will be reduced to bring about a saving to taxpayers. It is expect­ ed that street lights on Main Street will be the basis of the reduction. For the first time in Mt. Kisco's history, voting machines will be used at a village election. Last night the Village Board of Trus tees authorized the use of ma chines, the action being taken after a petition had been presented by that Fusion Party committee on Tuesday night wherein the use of machines was requested. Aided by Chief Edwin McCall and Officer Harry Eich, two Fed­ eral agents raided a distillery plant located in the former North' ern Westchester Hospital building on Stuart Place, Mount Kisco, Wednesday aftern6on.

To The Editor: Lions Ask Free Dates April 11,12 Dear Editor: I wonder if you will do the Mount Kisco Lions Club the fa­ vor of printing this letter in your Letters to the Editor column? Your courtesy will be greatly ap­ preciated. The play presented each year by the Mount Kisco Lions Club to obtain funds with which to sup port the free ambulance and other services offered the community will be staged April 11 and 12 in the Mount Kisco School Auditor­ ium. These dates were picked in the belief and expectation that they would not interfere with any oth­ er organization's activity program. We earnestly hope other organiza­ tions will assist the Lions Club in its effort to serve the community by leaving the April 11 and 12 week-end as free as possible of other audience-needed activities. Everybody will benefit if conflicts are avoided. Yours sincerely, John Kennedy, Chairman Play Committee YORKTOWN TROOP 150 sup­ plied this pantomime in the colorful costumes of the Far East, when Juliette Lowe World Friendship Day was- marked in the John Jay High School, with India as the theme,, on Saturday* morning.

Kirchhoff PTA' Board Favors School Site Purchase At its regular monthly meeting in March, the Chappaqua PTA executive board declared itself unanimously in favor of the pur­ chase of the Neustadt property as a site for a future elementary school. The resolution followed a lengthy discussion of all the is­ sues, pro and con, concerning the proposed acquisition. David E. Nierenberg, PTA Pres­ ident, expressed the hope that the voting this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Robert E. Bell auditorium, would be large, con­ sonant with Chappaqua's interest in school affairs. More particular ly, he said, he hoped that all of the 1,735 PTA members who were qualified voters would show up at the polls, since the voting so di­ rectly affects their children and themselves as parents.
