Rabbi, Editor Given Awards As Patriots NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — Two men from Westchester County, N.Y., a White Plains rabbi and a Pleasantville editor, received American Heritage Freedom Awards Saturday night during ceremonies ending Know Your America Week here. The awards, in the form of Free­ dom Books, were presented to Dr. S. Andhil Fineberg, rabbi of Con­ gregational Emanu El of West­ chester, White Plains, and com­ munity relations consultant of the American Jewish Committee: and Eugene Lyons of Pleasantville, a senior editor of Reader's Digest. The awards were presented in New Bedford Theater by Norman Knight, head of the Yankee Net­ work. In accepting the award for his work in fighting Communism, Dr. Fineberg declared that \both big business and big labor have be­ come indifferent to the require­ ments of patriotism.\ He said: \Patriotism is love of country and the unselfish service that this love inspires. Patriotic citizens would not engage in prolonged industrial strife to further their own interests Barbara Ferree, J. Co Barden Reporters, Are to Be Wed PLEASANTVILLE— Dr. and Mrs. John W. Ferree of 55 Grandview Ave., Pleasant­ ville, have announced\ the engage­ ment of .their daughter, Miss Bar­ bara Ferree, to Jimmy Carlton Barden of 115 Hamilton Ave. White Plains. Mr. Barden is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Guy C. Barden of Pocahontas, Ark. An April wedding is planned. Miss Ferree attended Pleasant­ ville High School and is a gradu­ ate of Northfield School for Girls, East Northfield, Mass., and Earl- ham College, Richmond, Ind. She was Pleasantville's first communi­ ty ambassador to Italy in 1957. Her father is executive director of the National Society for the Preven­ tion of Blindness in New York.

Both Miss Ferree and Mr. Bard­ en are members of the editorial staff of The Reporte. Dispatch. while disregarding the national welfare.\ Lyons was cited for his books and articles exposing Communism over a period of years. In his ac ceptance speech he warned that Soviet pledges today are no more reliable than they have been in the past. The invitation extended to Khrushchev to visit this coun­ try was termed \a blunder, al­ most a disaster,\ by the Digest editor. The Red leader was \pulling the leg\ of the American people with his offers to end the cold war in favor of peaceful coexistence. Lyons said. The cold war is not something that can be turned on and off like a faucet and peace ful coexistance, in the Russian viewpoint, simply means that Rus sia should be left alone to do as she pleases. MILK DEPOT OPPOSED OSSINING - The Zoning Board of Appeals heard an application Saturday by George Behling for a special usage of his land on North State Rd.

Relocation Plans Aired Mannix Assails Sells Route, Urges New Castle Oppose It Local Man On Inaugural Jet Flight CHAPPAQUA - A Chappaqua man was a mem ber of the crew for the recent inaugural overseas jet flight o; Trans World Airlines. Lawrence Guernon of 25 Elm St was navigator aboard the Boeing 707 which left IdlewiW at 7:30 p.m. on Monday of last week for London, arriving there six hours and 25 minutes later, at 6:55 a.m London time. The plane left London at 8 a m for Frankfort, Germany, arriving there an hour later, at 10 a.m Frankfort time. Mr. Guernon's plans called for a stopover of 30 or 35 hours in Paris, followed by a jet flight back home — a schedule required, he said, because as yet there are not too many people trained for jet flying, and those who are trained are used to full capacity. A veteran of nearly 15 years' flying experience, Mr. Guernon has recently returned from the TWA Training Center in Kansas City, where he received addition­ al training required for jet flights. Previous to his flying commer­ cially, he was in the Air Force Air Transport Command. Mr. and Mrs. Guernon have been Chappaqua residents for about 13 years. Christmas Boxes For State Hospital BEDFORD— The monthly meeting of the Mid­ dle Patent Garden Club will be held on Wednesday Dec. 9 at 10 a m. at the home of Mrs. Ralph Bugli, Mianus River Road, Bed­ ford.

At this meeting officers for the coming year will be elected. CHAPPAQUA — The president of the Upper West­ chester Community Assn. last week charged that New Castle will suffer damage\ from the Sells plan for relocation of Rte. 22. Henry Mannix asked at the end of his 50-minute presentation to the Town board that the board \go on record in opposition\ to the Sells plan and that it \make its action known to the State Depart­ ment of Public Works.\ Mannix asked that the board do this as soon as possible because he said he had been advised that the state state planned to select a route shortly. Green Pledges Action Supervisor Arthur Green said the board would \act as soon as feas ible\ although he predicted that it would be six months before the state selected a route. He said he had been informed of the time by the County Commissioner of Pub­ lic Works. Green also made it cear that the state had three routes under consideration besides the two known as the State and Sells routes. He added that he was­ n't sure of the location of these routes as they had not been com pleted yet. The Upper Westchester Commu­ nity Assn. is composed of New Castle residents whose property would suffer directly if the Sells route is followed for the relocation of Rte. 22. They contended that the state-proposed route, which does not run through New Castle should be followed. The Sells route would run close to Mount Kisco and Bedford Hills, while the state - proposed route would run almost parallel to the present Rte. 22. The Sells route was proposed by Engineer Charles H. Sells of Waccabuc after he was commissioned by the Bedford Town Board to draw up a propos­ ed plan after studying the route outlined by the state. Many Bed­ ford residents are opposed to the state's route. Sells Route Wins Backing The Bedford board has endors­ ed the Sells route, while the Mount Kisco Planning Board has endors ed it providing an additional en trance and exit to the highway can be constructed at the northern end Castle board has not announced its feelings Mannix asserted that \already property values in New Castle are affected\ by the Sells route. He claimed that the state - proposed route for relocation of Rte. 22, which would be four lanes with a width of 200 feet, would not af­ fect property values in New Cas­ tle. The New Castle resident em­ phasized again and again during his presentation that the Sells route would not relieve Rte. 117 (Bedford Road) of commercial traffic. He said the • Sells route \could not possibly relieve traffic on Rte. 117 south of Mount Kisco.\ He cited traffic counts from 1952 through 1958 to back up his state- ent. Although Mannix admitted that there is now \no positive proof\ as to the amount of commercial traffic passing through Kisco, he said available information indicat ed that \the volume of through commercial traffic is small.\ More Harm Than Good Mannix contended that without the additional interchange at the northern end of Mount Kisco, the of the village. So far, the New Sells route \may harm rather than benefit the village.\ He said that whether village officials were sue- Two Trainees In Guidance Now At HGHS CHAPPAQUA — Two members of the Counseling and Guidance Training Institute at Teachers College, Columbia Uni­ versity, are now working one day a week with Dean Dale E. Rem- aly in the guidance program of Horace Greeley High School, and will continue to do so for the re­ mainder of the school year. Miss Betty Ry'#o*t and John Waclawik are counselor trainees assigned under a program of the National Defense Education Act. Forty-five schools in Westchester, Long Island and New Jersey are participating in the program, with two trainees assigned to each school. Miss Rybolt received a bachelor of arts degree at Ball State Col­ lege, Muncie, Ind., and a master's degree in education at Indiana Uni­ versity. For the past few years she has been active in audio-visual ed­ ucation at Technical Vocational High School in Hammond, Ind. Mr. Waclawik was graduated from North Dakota State College, and he received his master's de­ gree in education at the Univer­ sity of North Dakota. A Marine Corps veteran of the Korean con­ flict, he holds the rank of major in the reserve. He has had four years of teaching experience in North Dakota high schools. The trainees are on an obser­ vation basis at present, and wil start some counseling the second semester of the year. cessful in their attempt to obtain the additional interchange depend­ ed on the following: Whether access roads to the Sells route at the northern emJ of the village would have shallow enough grades for use by trucks, since the route is on a ridge at that point. Whether the expense (about $200,000) of an interchange at mis point can be justified. Whether Federal authorities would finance the cost of improv­ ing access roads beyond the right- of-way line, which they normally do not do. Another major argument by Mannix dealt with the grades of the access roads. He contended that access roads to an inter­ change in the northern end of the village would be from 10 to 17 per cent. Three final points Mannix made in opposition to the Sells route were that its nearness to Mount Kisco would aggravate the traf­ fic problem there, and interchange at routes 172 and 117 would be a serious traffic hazard and that the Federal Government might not pay its 50 per cent share of the work hecause funds aren't available.
