(Story on Page 9.) Family Service Will Honor Mrs. Dammann at Gathering The main function of the social worker is to help people move out of misery not of their own do ing or, if the misery is of their own doing, to help them to change. This is the belief of Mrs. Rich ard W. Dammann of Rye, whose retirement as president of Family Service of Westchester, will be marked by a dinner in her honor at the agency's annual meeting May 12 in the Chrysler Training Center in Rye. A professional social worker with a degree from Smith College and a graduate degree from the New York School of Social Work, Mrs. Dammann has presided over the growth of the agency from its beginning in a one-room office in White Plains in 1954 to its present position as the largest non-sec tarian family counseling agency in Westchester. 1,500 Cases Aided Its seven branches, which serve those living or working in two- thirds of the county, each year handle nearly 1,500 cases of ma rital discord, disturbed parent- child relationships and other sim ilar emotional social problems. \People often ask me what are the major troubles brought in by our clients,\ Mrs. Dammann says. \I have to point out that the spe cific troubles they bring in are like the symptoms of an illness— they are really most often the re sult rather than the cause of the underlying problem.\ In general, however, she feels there is a recognizable increase in dependency and a growing ten- dancy for parents to abdicate their roles in family life. Just as there is no single cause of family problems, there is no single cure and many different ap proaches have been made toward their solution \Psychoanalysis family case work, religious guidance—all have been helpful,\ Mrs. Dammann points out. \Unfortunately help ing individuals solve individual problems does not seem to help society avoid creating problems. \In our preoccupation with in dividual casework, we must not forget about poor housing, econom ic dislocations, social tensions and other basic factors in our culture which breed trouble.\ Mrs. Dammann's interest in so cial work dates back to her child hood in Chicago. Her mother, who was active in nursing education, reared young Marjorie Spiegel in a household where doctors, nurses and social workers were custom' ary visitors. During World War ll, while her husband was in the Navy, Mrs Dammann was in charge of Mi ami Navy Relief. After the war, she returned with her family to Westchester and de voted most of her time to rearing three daughters and to her prime hobby of gardening. At various times she has helped with social work projects During her five years with Fam ily Service of Westchester, Mrs Dammann has seen most of her high hopes for the agency real ized. \If we have a weak spot,\ she says, \it is perhaps our slow pro gress in recruiting volunteers for such of our services as the Big Brother-Big Sister program. One wonders at the hesitancy of re sponsible men and women to come forward and extend help to the emotionally deprived young sters in the community who need their support.\ TRIBUTE TO ILL MAN OSSINING—Tribute was paid to Harvey W. Culp, president of the Board of Education since 1951, at last night's annual meeting of the Ossining School District in the Ossining High School auditorium, Culp has been ill at Phelps Me morial Hospital for several months. The dinner in her honor will feature an address by Dr. Sol W. Ginsburgh, New York psychoan alyst, on \The American Family: Villain or Scapegoat.\ Tickets for the dinner are avail able at the agency's office at 120 Grand St., White Plains.

REJECT SCHOOL BUDGET PELHAM—Voters here rejected their school budget for the firs time in the history of the Pelham School District last night by a 439- 413 tally. A record turnout of al most 900 persons voted at the an nual meeting, disapproving the $2, 040,000 budget Board officials were uncertain about their next move. \To say we are disappointed would be putting, it mildly,\ Pres ident George Erickson said. The meeting was adjourned to Thurs day; May 21, with a public hearing on a new budget slated for May 18. The* rejected budget called for a tax rate of $28.90, an increase of $3.92 per $1,000 of assessed valu ation. 1948 Autos To Be Checked During May Commissioner William S. Hults of the Bureau of Motor Vehicles today reminded all motorists whose cars or trucks are of 1948 vintage that they must have them safety- checked at one of the more than 8,500^*nspection stations in the State during May. Failure to pass the inspection on time and obtain a valid stamp can result in a charge of a traffic violation and suspension of the registration and plates. Past experience has shown thai approximately 50 percent of the vehicles due for inspection require some adjustments upon the initial inspection and that the greater percent of these owners have the repairs and adjustments made before leaving the station, thus avoiding rejection. After rejection, owners have 10 days in which to have necessary repairs made and their cars re inspected.
