Libraries A rrange Antiques Fair Exhibits Largest Cash Outlay for Food: (Special To The Advance) < NEW YORK — Recession or no recession , I960 turned out to be a good business year in Suffolk County. A great deal of money was spent in the county for food , clothing, automotive equipment , drugs and general household ne- cessities even though consumer buying was moi' e restrained than usual. Locally, this attitude of caution , induced b y business conditions that affected all areas , caused few- er cutbacks in spending plans than it did in most communities . The facts .are broug ht out in the annual suivey of markets, made by the Standai d Rate and Data Service to determine how the consumer spent his retail dollai last year and for what. It covers all parts of the United States. v In Suffolk County, it shows , the<! largest outlays were for food. Sales in the local meat markets , giocei y stores, bakeries , delicates- sens and the like added up to $227 , - 864 , 000 , compared with the pre- vious, year ' s total of $212 , 302,000. It was equivalent to 29 cents of every dollar spent at retail. That was onl y for food bought for home consumption. In addition , there was the money spent in res- taurants and in other eating and ( ' linking p laces for on-the-spot Use. The amount purchased for home consumption , if apportioned equal- ly among the Suffolk County population , would come to $1 , 229 per household. The ability of local residents to indulge in more and better food was made possible by the higher ?level of income enjoyed by the ma- jorit y of them. The 29 cents out of each dollar that was spent for food in the county exceeded the United Sta- tes figure of 24 cents. In the state of New York it was 26 cents. For most retail lines , as well , the business year was a good one. Stoies selling cars and other au- tomotive equip m e n t , including boats and motorcycles , accounted for $118 , 316 , 000. It represented 15 cents of the dollar. Those selling general merchan- dise had sales totaling $69 , 016 , 000 , equal to 9 cents. Apparel sales — clothing , hats , shoes and the like — came to $40 , 025 , 000. equivalent to 5 cents. In the local home furnishings stoi es the total was $31 , 310 , 000 , for 4 cents of the dollar. 1960 Suff. Business Was Good' LAKE RONKONKOMA — The hearing which was scheduled for July 14 in the Ronkonkoma Fire House on Portion Road here in Lake Ronkonkoma , between the Ronkonkoma fire commissioners and the Green Mjeadows Water Company to discuss setting up a fire protection district , was can- celled when the company failed to provide a map of the proposed dis- trict. Hydrants were installed when homes in the Lakeside village area were built three years ago , but no agreement with the private wa- tei company serving the area has been worked out to put the hy- drants into service. The Lakeside Civic Association , said that many of the 500 homes in the Lakeside villag e were with- out w ater last Winter for up to a month because of frozen pipes , and that it wants the water com- pany ' s assurance of 24-hour emer- gency service before considering the fire protection district. The Ronkonkoma Fire Depart- ment feels the water supply car- ried by its pumpers is adequate to handle any fire in the area , a department spokesman said. A spokesman for the civic associa- tion said the residents also want assurance the water rates won 't be raised \ exorbitantly \ after the hy- drants are put into serv ice. Company president , Joseph Gluckman of 45 Nassau Drive , Great Neek , refused to comment. Hydrant Hearing Is Called Off At Lake Ronk . MEDFORD STATION — Post- master John F.
