Ray, vice president of the Northern Westchester Na­ tional Bank, will return during • June to The Graduate School of IBanking at Rutgers — The State University for his third summer session. With session, which will be held on the university's campus in New Brunswick, N.J, June 8 through 20, he will complete his course at the school. Mr. Ray is one of nearly 1,100 bank officers who will attend the two-week session of the school, which is sponsored by the Ameri­ can Bankers Assn. This student body, from 44 states, the District of Columbia; Puerto Rico, and Colombia, S.A., representas' a ca­ pacity enrollment. . The Graduate School was found­ ed in 1935 by A.B.A. to provide an opportunity for advanced study for experienced bankers. The faculty for the 19F-9 session numbers ap­ proximately lOo outstanding bank­ ers, lawyers, educators, bank su­ pervisors, and government officials. During the session they will cover all phases of banking, economics, law, government, and related sub­ jects. Three major subjects are of­ fered by the School: commer­ cial banking, trusts, and savings management and real estate fi­ nancing. Mr. Ray is majoring in commercial banking. In addition to his three resident sessions at Rutgers, to qualify for graduation Mr. Ray must have completed two years of extension study at home and written a thesis based on original research in some phase of finance. Cornell Offers Bulletin On An Expansible House As families grow in size they are inevitably faced with the need for more living space. They must decide whether to buy or build a new house, remodel an old one, or change the house they are living in at present. One happy solution discovered by many is to plan on carrying out the remodeling job of an old house while living in it. If remod­ eling can be done a step at a time, they find it possible to fi­ nance the improvement out of income instead of going into debt. Moreover, this gradual remodeling allows them to live fairly com­ fortably in their home during con­ struction. Another economical plan for young families confronted with present building costs is tht idea of an expansible house. This means planning a new house care­ fully enough to permi teconomical and satisfactory expansion later. Extensive changes in window and door locations, removal of large areas of walls, and difficult roof alterations cost a great deal of money. They can be prevented to a great extent if thoughtful planning is done in the first place.

He painted a pretty sorry picture. He said that \Mr. Public\ should de­ mand decent programming at de­ cent hours. He advocated sending postcards, and if the thinking man is too lazy to write a card to stop buying the product that pays for shoddy programming.) Mr. Bloch's words follow: Anything I have, to say begins with a belief so basic that many of my co-workers in television may find it naive. I believe the majori­ ty of the viewing audience has in­ telligence. But I also think this same in­ telligent majority has approached television with a destructive kind of snobbery, thinking of television as a narcotic for fools. Here, plant­ ed in Mr. Intelligent Public's liv­ ing room is the most influential tool that has ever been invented for shaping the human mind, and he has refused to accept his re­ sponsibility for seeing that this medium is> used properly. His apathy has permitted television to become a monster that squats there oozing mediocrity out of its grey hole. And he must be made to realize how dangerous that mediocrity is, It filters into homes like a poison gas and works slowly but cor- |rosive$ night after night, offering neither escape nor entertainment, just stupification. Here is as subtle and effective a brain-washing wea­ pon for the American miir 1 as any scientist could devise. It seems inconveivable that the same man who would bar his door to a degenerate who tries to come in and take over his family's mind would willingly turn the knob that invites this same kind of pow­ er in. And now a state of im­ potence has been reached where [lie accepts unquestioningly the fact that he's being treated like a sim­ ple-minded child who isn't bright enough to understand more than the basic two thousand words but is rewarded once a week on Sun­ day afternoon with a squint at so- called stimulating programming, istic picture of life as it's lived. Now it is.virtually forbidden to do so. But maybe Mr, Intelligent Pub­ lic doesn't want to face the pres­ ent world as it exists. Maybe he'd like to shut it out of his home. Fine. Do it quickly though. The more we shut out the world the less time we'll have to worry about the world being there. We're one purple mushroom away from hav­ ing our world suddenly revert ,to the void it was before - the first methane gas started to accidental­ ly work toward forming a living cell. World Needs Help Today all of our efforts should be going toward facing the fact that we live in a world that needs help, not in sticking our heads in the sand. We Americans have been fighting a losing battle in this pe­ riod that may be the breather between a warm-up war and a fi­ nal war. And now that our tele­ vision programs are being sold for presentation everywhere from England to Japan we've unleash­ ed the moS$ destructive anti-Amer­ ican propaganda we could possibly use. These distorted pictures of American life, the same programs that we've condoned in our homes, represent us to the World. We can't laugh it off and say that other countries don't take our 'My Little Margie\ or \Highway Pa­ trol\ seriously. They do. This is all they know of us. This drivel is America as it appears to the world. And it hardly makes Amer­ ica worth serious consideration to them'. What should we send over in­ stead? That's up to you to decide. At the moment we have nothing. Not one regular half hour that really shows what we say, how we live, what *re dream, what we're afraid of. Not one show that tells the rest of the world that we're human as they are, human enough to make a go of living intelligently with them. And what can Mr. Intelligent Public do about it? Everything. It takes five minutes to write a post­ card. Five minutes to demand, not asK for, decent programming at decent hours. Unfonunauei.v i.^ problem is to goad Mr. Intelligent Public into talJng those five min­ utes. But if out of 20,000,000 who Nev/ Castle Tribune, Chappaqua, N. Y., June 4, .1959 1400 Youngsters Expected Tb Use Camping Facilities One-thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine will be a record camp-, ing season for Westchester young­ sters, according to Morton Hyman, supervisor of camping for the County Recreation Commission's Croton Point camps, who reports an advance registration almost tripling May 1958 figures. More than 715 two-week encampments* are already listed. Campers,, boys and girls of the Parra Shifts Police Forces HAWTHORNE- Patrolman Baltasar Parra of the Mount Pleasant town police will be wearing a different uniform after June 7. Parra was given the offical okay this week by town officials to trans­ fer to the Tarrytown Police De­ partment. The Town Board accept­ ed his resignation. He has been on the town force since November, 1957. The officer, who lives at 24 Ham­ ilton PI., Tarrytown, is twenty-nine years old. Born in Spam, he has lived 19 years in the Tarrytowns and. attended North Tarrytown High School. This programming, unfortunately,, through a typical evening :oi turns out to be just as deadly as the evening schedule, only bul­ kier and more earnest. And once in a great while special program­ ming is scattered around like nuts in an indigestable pudding. Not Concerned Because Mr. Intelligent Public hasn't been concerned, enough to do something about it, he has al­ most forfeited his right to demand a change. At this moment there isn't one regularly sched­ uled program during the reason-- able evening hours that says \You are worth something.\ How many shows in the past ten years have lifted you up, have left you proud to be what you are, have instructed you in that most vital of all do-it-yourself projects, the use of your brain? \The Price is Right?\ \Gunsmoke\? \Law­ rence 'Welk\? And the rise in quality the pub­ lic should demand doesn't mean denying television its function as entertainment. It should be the challenge of television to say what it has to say as compellingly as possible, be it on a cowboy show or a cooking class. Quality should be intrinsic in the programs, and without departing from entertain­ ment television should be able to face issues, to make statements, to anger people, to present a real- monotony only one per cent wrote in saying \Why treat us like idiots?\ that would be 200,000 post­ cards. And no one in the controll­ ing echelon of television could ig­ nore that, especially when the life of a program may be decided on a survey made by only 1,000 phone calls. And even if the thinking man stayed too lazy to write a post­ card there's something he can do without any effort whatsoever. He can get immediate action by grab­ bing the sponsors where it hurts, by their dangling pocketbooks. If one million people suddenly stopped buying a certain cigarette or brassiere or deodorant because that product paid for shoddy pro­ gramming, a'sponsor would revise the show that represented him in­ stantly. I agree with my co-workers and superiors 'that the only audience that bothers to do anything,about programming is the audience made up of the lunks who live lives on a \Price is Right'! level - But the . audience' that should matter is still the silent audience. The lunks are in the minority, and something is terribly wrong if they continue to rule what comes into our homes. Television can and should be the prime force that jolts people's heads out of the sand, that teaches us that there's something of value in life and hat there's hope for a future. county eight through thirteen years will enjoy two swims daily in the dawn blue L-shaped pool opened in 1958, sports activities on two new­ ly-completed multi-use black-top­ ped play areas adjacent to the pool and brand new California red­ wood bathhouse readied for this season.
