Chappaqua Library Chappaqua, N.x. Serving New Castle 31 Years—No. 33 CHAPPAQUA, N. Y., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4,1958 PRICE FIVE CENTS School Census Shows Enrollment Increase The 1958 child census for school district 4 shows 178 more children from birth through 17 years of age than a year ago, it was disclosed by District Principal Douglas G. Grafflin this week. There are also 122 more children enrolled m the local public schools. The total num­ ber of children in the school dis­ trict is 3,238 and the number en­ rolled in the public schools is 2,223. Mr. Grafflin pointed out that the census tables are most useful to the school in long range predic­ tions of enrollment. He expressed the district's gratitude to the PTA for undertaking the task of can­ vassing the school district to se­ cure this data. Mrs. David Buc­ hanan of 40 Aldridge Rd. was the 1958 PTA census committee chair­ man. The average increase in num­ bers of children over the past 10 years has been 164 each year and the average increase in school enrollment for the same period has been 133 pupils. An examina­ tion of the detailed data for each of the past ten years supports the position that the figure given for average increase in number of children and average increase in school enrollment is also a figure that can be described as being characteristic. There has been no significant trend upward or down­ ward throughout the 10 year pe- iod. The figure for enrollment of pu­ pils in parochial schools, private schools, and colleges has increased by 36 this year as compared to The figure now stands at 332. The increase of 36 this year is more than double the average increase of -5 per year over the past 10 years. In this connection it should be noted that the average figure of 15 additional parochial or private school pupils each year does not as accurately describe a characteristic year as do the aver­ age figures in other categories. The change in this number fluc­ tuates widely from year to year, ranging from a minus 11 to a plus 43. There is nothing in the census date to account for the unpredictableness of this figure. Skiing Film Beneiits Exchange Student Fund John Jay, \America's unique ambassador of skiing,\ will re­ turn to the Fox Lane School in Bedford on Saturday, Dec. 13 at 9:00 o.m. with his brand new col­ or film, \White Flight\. Those who saw his show last year will remember his talent for combin­ ing breathtaking photography with a witty and often hilarious com­ mentary. Mr. Jay, who is the great-great- great grandson of our first U. S. Supreme Court Chief Justice, has been making these feature length movies with his wife Lois since 1946 and showing them to packed houses all across the country. He was the official U.S- photographer at the Olympic Games in 1948 and is the author of \Skiing The Amer­ icas.\ Besides filming, editing and touring with his pictures. Jay still finds time to write, for some of our leading magazines. This year \White Flight\ will take us to some of the leading ski areas in this country as well as ,jn i^istria and Switzerland.

The presentation on Dec. 13 is again being held for the benefit ot the American Field Service In­ ternational Scholarship Fund. This organization along with the spon­ sorship of the Mt.

NY < Director of 'Uncle Harry 9 Lives and Loves a Busy Life No resident of Chappaqua should ever be surprised to hear that a fellow townsman has a colorful past. Anyone who has lived in the community for even a few months begins to realize that the Chap­ paqua woods only partly conceal an unusual number of unusual people, with unusual talent. Deana Sweet of Mill River rd., director of the Chappaqua Drama Group's production of \Uncle Har­ ry\ tonight (Thursday), tomorrow- night and Saturday at Horace Greeley High School, fits all the above specifications. This Lions Club-sponsored production for the benefit of the American Field Service program in Chappaqua is her latest effort. A midwesterner, like her hus­ band John who is dramatics coach at Horace Greeley High School, Deana had to go to Paris to meet him in 1945 in a play produced by the United States Army. They were married in New York, but both returned to London in 1946 to star in the first American post­ war production of \Our Town.\ Their joint career continued: The Workshop Theatre, Bruns­ wick, Me., where thoy alternated directing and acting in some 250 performances throughout New England; WBZ - TV in Boston, where they telecast a. number of Deana's original sketches; and. on to Chappaqua when.John took'his present post. to make it possible for each stu­ dent to practice directing as well as acting. Busy, Mrs. Sweet? Well, at least as busy as a few of your Chap­ paqua neighbors. tm %ens Day 9 Party Slated for HospitalDecorations greei may be left at the Com­ munity House on that day and The annual \Greens Day\ party at.

Zealand AFS List Names of two members of the junior class at Horace Greeley High School have been submitted to American Field Service headquar­ ters as candidates for a stay in New Zealand under AFS auspices Estei W. (Woody) Kelley and Robert Burch have been selected from 18 juniors who applied. Their names will go into a nation-wide \pool\ from which a limited num­ ber of students will be chosen. This is the first time that New Zealand has entered the AFS pro gram, according to Charles F Taylor, AFS representative on the Horace Greeley faculty. The pro gram is therefore somewhat limit­ ed, but present plans call for the selected students to spend the sec and half of their junior year there leaving Feb. 9 and returning in June. In line with AFS policy, the students live with local families and attend the local schools. Woody is the son of Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Kelley of 56 High Way and Robert is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles J. Burch of 8 Law­ rence Farms Cross Way. Chappaqua has participated in the AFS program for five years Each year during that time, one or two Horace Greeley students have spent a summer abroad, and A foreign student has lived with * local family and attended the high school. This year's represen tative Is Anna Bernstrom of Swe dtn. Monday, Dec. 15, and Tuesday, .6, on the West Porch of the building, which is on the Main Street side. We hope our neighbors will be especially generous with their gifts of greens this year,\ said Mrs. ulier, \for after we have made the great garland for the hopspital entrance and wreaths for the windows, all the greens left over will go to Westfield State Farm where some of the the women, under the guidance\ of the Beford Garden Club, have been working and learning about gardening in their 'New Friendship Garden Club'. With the help of Garden Club members who have been working on this project the wom­ en will use these greens to make decorations for the Institution, especially the main rooms and their chapel.\ 3 Radio Units Will Speed Snow Work With the 1958-59 \snow season' at hand, Bedford Highway Supt. Arthur S. Bailie and the 19-man force he supervises, have acceler­ ated preparations for the rugged, blusterous days—and nights that lie ahead. Radio - equipped vehicles will again help speed snow removal operations on the 137 miles of state and town highways the Bed­ ford department keeps free of snow and ice. In addition to 95 miles of town roads Mr. Bailie's frost-bitten force must keep open, regardless of weather conditions, it also has the responsibility of sanding and removing snow from 12 miles of unty road within the town and removing snow from 30 miles of state-owned highway in Bedford communities. For those services, the county has contract­ ed to pay the town $200 per mile payable May 1, 1959, and the state will pay an unspecified sum based on the hours and amoun of men and equipment the high­ way department has to throw .into its battle against the elements Mr. Bailie, at the last meeting of Bedford councilmen, was au­ thorized to bolster his equipmen by purchasing a new snowplow a a cost not to exceed $995. It'll be the highway department's 17th snowplow. He was also given the green light to buy a four- wheel drive dump truck at a cos not in excess of $10,500; One o: the highway department's 10 trucks will be radio equipped as will jeeps driven by superinten dent Bailie and highway foreman John Mazzola.

GILBERT ETHIER following manner: \an unincor­ porated village in the township of New Castle, on the Saw Mill Riv­ er Parkway between Pleasantville and Mount Kisco, 32 miles north of N.Y.C. Elevation: 400 ft. above sea level. Although predominantly a commuters' town, Chappaqua retains a pronounced rural aspect. Many Colonial and 19th century homes are strong reminders of the village's early history. It was settled in 1702 through Royal Patent to Heathcote and eight other patentees. Points of special interest: Quaker meeting house (1752), used as a hospital in the Revolutionary War; Pines- bridge Rd., along which Washing­ ton and Rochambeau marched; and the site of Horace Greeley's house.\ The publication also lists the present population at 9,000, (esti­ mated), v an, increase of 200 per cent over the; 1950 census of 3,000. Teen Canteen Drive Reaches $1,900 Mark A total of more than $1,900 has been collected to date in the stu­ dent drive for Chappaqua's Teen- Age Canteen. About 150 students participated in a one-day house to-house canvass on Nov. 22 col­ lecting a known total of $1,915.39 with some areas of the community unreported at that time. The money is to be used for the initial equipment necessary to open the canteen, and for operating expenses other than the director's salary, throughout the year. Mrs. Stephen Kelly, chairman of the women's committee for the can­ teen, commented that \the need for a youth center is certainly evi­ dent, not only in the wonderful way the students turned out to canvass for funds, but also in the generous support given them by the adults in the community in their response to the appeal.\ Any interested people who were not contacted may donate to the fund by calling the co-chairman of rate increase of $1.68 if the budg­ et receives final approval. The 36 cents tax increase for those residents living outside the village of Mount Kisco boosts the total tax rate $12.37 per $1,000. The gross budget stands at $532,- 818 for the coming year. Broken down, this total includes $268,99$' for the entire town, $150,915 for police and $112,907 for the town outside the village of Mount Kisco. The \entire town!' budget covers expenditures which are paid by taxpayers both in the unincor­ porated area of New Castle and in the portion of the unincorporat­ ed village of Mount Kisco/which lies within New Castle/ The town outside\ b u d g e4 covers items which are paid for by tax­ payers living in the unincorporated area only. Taxes from the town outside pay for town police ex­ penditures. According to the preliminary budget, the total to be raised by taxes in the entire town is $154,- 968. In the town outside, the total is $100,607 and the police budget total is $150,915. Assessed valuation in'the entire town is $46,922,552. The town out­ side valuation is $37,661,047. Supervisor Arthur L. Green will discuss several possible methods by which the Town of New Castle might finance and administer a community swimming pool, at the Town Club's open meeting pre­ viously announced and scheduled for Dec. 11 at the Robert E. Bell School. Frank Boemerman, chairman of the New Castle Recreation Com­ mission, will outline the work that his group has done in examining sites and preparing tentative plans and timetables for the develop­ ment of the site.

Bell School will be conducted beginning Feb 17 by Mrs. Margaret Block, psy­ chologist with the Westchester Children's Assn. Sponsored again by the Parent-Teacher Assn., these informal meetings will provide, as they have in the past, the op­ portunity for exploration of the needs and problems of this age group. The discussions under the skillful and sympathetic guidance of Mrs. Block have proved so worthwhile that the PTA has slated this new series. The series will include six meet­ ings, on Tuesday mornings from 10 o'clock to 11 o'clock. The group will meet downstairs in the Chap­ paqua Library. There is a nominal fee of $4.50 a person which bene­ fits the Children's Assn. Applications have been sent to parents of students in the two grades. Because it is felt that such meetings are more valuable if they are not too large, the series will be limited to about 20 persons. Ap­ plications will be accepted on a \first come, first served\ basis, and final notices wll be sent out in January. The Ducks Will Eat This Winter, Thanks To The Girl Scouts A cake sale held Saturday aft­ ernoon for the benefit of the ducks in Chappaqua's duck pond netted $51.61 to the two Girl Scout Troops who have undertaken the respon­ sibility of feeding the ducks this winter. The Girl Scouts in the troops of Mrs.* Herbert Holden and Mrs. John Volkhardt made and sold the baked goods for their project. The money realized should buy enough food for the ducks for four months. ' Residents who would like to help the cause are requested to leave their Christmas trees at the' pond after Christmas, so that the Girl Scouts can construct shelters for the ducks. Residents are asked not to feed the ducks with the scouts' supplies, because that way the feed might not last the winter. Scouts assisting with the sale were: Janet Gaffney, Barbara Buerger, Noel Forrest, Bonnie Maloney, Gail Laubach, Liz Mc Kinley, Kathy Page, Jill Stanley, Jackie Volkhardt, Mary Whitney, Sandy Holden, Georgia Melville, Beverly Molar, Janet Carriet and Rubin Russell. of recreational planning and ad­ ministration to describe how other communities have provided rec­ reational facilities for their resi­ dents. Dr. Prezioso has held his present post since 1954, and has offered guidance in recreational de­ velopment to a number of near­ by communities. The New Castle Recreation Commission has tentatively select­ ed the Turner property on Hard- scrabble Rd. as the best site for this recreational development. It has asked the Town Board for $2,- 000 to carry out the necessary en­ gineering studies to determine whether the site can be developed at reasonable cost. These studies would then form the basis for pos­ sible further action by the Town Board. The Town Club has announced that its meeting is open to all in­ terested residents, both men and women. Starting time is 8:30 p.m. Center Named 4 Brig 'n Teen' \Brig 'n Teen\ is the name chosen for the new teen-age can­ teen in Chappaqua.

Once again the window of the New Castle Tribune is filled with Christmas stockings, but at the moment they are empty. They are waiting for the generous people of Chappaqua. to pick them up, fill them up and return them to our window so that we can send them to the Elizabeth Milbank An­ derson Home to help make a Merry Christmas for the children who will spend the holidays there.
