At the same meeting, trustees Emil Eskilsen. William Scoz- zafava, Glenn Lehigh and Ronald Cochrane were polled individually by the Mayor and each indicated that legal action should be taken to evict the Miller family from their home, Op- position to the move came from Pastizzo who said it was \inhumane ' At the press conference Sunday morning, Pastizzo continued to oppose taking legal action against Mr Miller Elizabeth Norton, correspondent for the Syracuse Post Standard. Herald-American asked 'There are at least three factory pre-built homes now being lived in by Gouverneur families in residential zones of the village. All three arrived on wheels or trucks in Gouverneur lo be bolted together and placed upon foundations .Have the trustees been asked to in- vestigate the situation of the other two homes 0 ' 'No, they haven't' was the mayor's replay, 'There has been nothing done on the other two homes..this was not the problem—it has been discussed briefly I was not on the board at the time, neither were any of the other board members.' Records on file in the village offices show thaf e permit was issued JuJy 12, 4965 for the placement of a Kmgwood Ritz- Craft structure at 138 W Barney.

Mr and Mrs. Harvey Gamer, but Mr. Ganter told Luncheon Club members Wednesday that the benefits offset all discomforts. One of the visible benefits were the professionally presented colored slides he showed of their travels, which covered 50,000 miles and took them into 38 countries. Accompanying the presentattion was a tape made by the Gamers describing the views and enlivened by conversations with people portrayed and music of the particular locale. Mr Ganter, who was on sab- batical from his math-teaching job at Gouverneur High School, said 'The tour was miniscule in comparison to what there is to see in the old world, and the pictures are miniscule in com- parison to what we saw'. Treasured are the friendships made in the many countries, Mr. Ganter said, and told of meeting one Japanese gentleman in S&n Francisco, who invited him and his wife to visit him in Osako. When they reached Japan, they did just that, and had a very enjoyable visit. Among the many items collected, Mr. Ganter assembled a complete collection of paper money and coins, which he plans »o prepare for display. Flying from New York, the Gamers made their first stop at Antigua, in the Caribbean, then proceeded to Rio di Janeiro where they rented a light plane 3for aerial sightseeing In South America they visited Brazil, Uruguay, and Peru — where they trekked to the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. Returning south, »heir itinerary included stops in Panama. Costa Rica and Mexico before they crossed the Pacific for Japan. Korea, and Thailand In Europe, stops included Turkey. Germany, Switzerland. France and Scotland Not neglecting their homeland, Mr and Mrs Ganter returned to travel from coast to coast in their camper, and he concluded there is just as much beauty in our own back yard' There will be no luncheon meeting today This evening members of the Fire &*?&**—- ment will be guests of the club at the Clearview There will be a social hour from 6 30 to 7 30 with dinner to follow As a continuing fund raring event. members of the Luncheon Club are selling tickets for a car wash a* Citation Car Wash / Ht : »r: custom CJ* ^' lc>i>rm -.£ cia. 4 •*< (ar former itrrt it b«ttfH^M to tU>v at
