The holiday regatta will last until Monday. The three-day series has always been well attended in the past and this year should prove to be no exception. Last year the regatta set a record lor the most crail entered in anv one event on tht Great South Bay—320. Bellport Bay Yacht Club' s com modore, Malcolm Fleming, said yesterday he expects that record to be broken. \We expect to better that record of last year , \ he said. The regatta is one of the oldest sailing classics on the Great South Bay and has gained in reputation through the years. The series dates back to 1912. Over the years , sailors from neig hboring states of Connecticut and New Jersey have entered the competition at Bell- port. This year ' s chairman of the Re- gatta committee is Dr. Merrill Foote of Bellport. H. Hastings Rcddall is vice chairman. Lunch will be served at the clubhouse to partici pating crews on all three days . Many of last year ' s winners are expected to attempt to retain their first p lace position hold on certain • vents. Last year ' s competition was hit hard by rain and winds. The race in the Star Class was marked by a close finish and was won by Stan Ogilvy ' s Flame. He just barel y nosed out Ken Smith' s Sirene of the Huntington Bay fie^t. Ogilvy won the William H. Picken Memorial trophy.

Yax to open an ac- count in Peoples National Bank , Patchogue , for the master park- ing progiam of the village. Mr. Yax reported to the board that he was able to borrow $320 , 000 from the bank at 1.60 per cent interest for one year. The pro- gram includes the Church Street , Lake Street and Oak Street park- ing fields. i \All notes are due in April , 1962 , \ Mr. Yax said , \ and the vil- lage can redeem the notes prior to mfaturity, \ He said a saving of \ approximately $20 , 000\ has been realized by the village be- cause the law permits the village to pay property owners 100 per cent of the acquisition costs in- stead of 60 per cent of the total cost. Previously, the municipality paid interest on 40 per cent of the cost of acquisition. Mayor Robert T. Waldbauer said the board planned to begin making acquisitions next month for the Terry Street parking field. The schedule calls for specifica- tions to be made in the Fall and demolition to beg-i n in the Spring of 1962. Documentary Film Jack M. Beebe Enterprises of New York City wrote to the board to propose that the firm do a do- cumentary film on the village of Patchogue. Mayor Waldbauer expressed en- thusiasm for the idea and said it would be a \ selling point for the village. \ It would be intended , he said , to show in the film the ope- ration of village government , va- rious departments of the govern- ment , and business and industry in the village. He said the 30 to 40 minute film could be shown to local civic , religious and fraternal organizations to tell them more about their community. Mr. Waldbauer appointed a com- mitte e of Trustees Dominick Mja- letta , Roy Krieger and Donald Schneider to work with him in dis- cussing the proposal with Beebe Enterprises. Appoint Attorney On the recommendation of the mayor the board voted unanimous- ly to retain Reginald C. Smith . Riverhead attorney, to handle le- gal matters in connection with the action of Josep h T. Losee et al against Mayor Waldbauer Trus- tee Robinson Roe and the rest of the Village Board. On August 8 Supreme Court Justice Henry M. Zaleski dismissed the Losee suit charging the Mayor and Mr. Roe with a conflict of interest in re- lation to a $1 , 000 ,000 parking lot program for the village. Village Attorney Robert G. Bauer , who has been handling the Continued on page 7 , this section Seldenites Hit Town College Site Stand In a letter to the Brook- haven Town Board the Sel- den Civic Association called upon the board Tuesday to withdraw its prior resolu- tion endorsing Farmingville as the postal address of the Suffolk County Commu- nity College. Tonight at 8:30 p. m. in the Bi- cycle Path School , Selden , the as- sociation will hold a meeting to discuss the town board' s resolution suggesting that the County Board of Supervisors recommend to the Board of Trustees that Farming- ville be desi gnated as the postal address. In February the trustees established Selden as the postal address! after a survey was made of postal facilities. In a letter , signed by Peter D'Amelio , president of the associa- tion , it was stated that , the town board' s action would \ work to this community ' s detriment\ and said the address was a matter to be determined by trustees of the col- !'*ge. \Since , however , you (the town board ) deemed it necessary to interfere with the educational processes of this count y and state , we feel it necessary to request of you that you go on record by resolution nullify ing your past action. . . \ Ihe association submitted a resolution on which the board was asked to take action. The letter and the resolution were re f erred to Supervisor August Stout , Jr. for further stud y. (See another story in this issue on the appearance of a represen- tative of the Farmingville-Holts- ville Civic Tax Payers Association Monday before the County Board of Supervisors.) At tonight' s meeting members of the Board of Education of School District 11 (Centei-^ach- Selden) will also address residents on the proposed September 19 vote on three proposals involving the purchase of land and the con- struction of a new elementary school , the purchase of additional equi pment for the junior hig h j school and the renovation of Wood Road School. F-H Assn. Requests Cty. Address Support Delegation to Riverhead RIVERHEAD — The Farmingville-Holtsville Civic Taxpayers Association appealed to the Count y Board of Supervisors Monday to support its claim that the mailing address of the Suffolk County Community College should be \Farmingville. \ Charging that, the trustees of the new college have arbitrarily and illegally ottered tne Hand- ling of the mail to Selden , tiie association asked legal and moral support of the board in demand- ing its \ rights which have gone begging. \ According to the association ' s attorney, Alan Brand of Lake Ronkonkoma , the C o m m u nit y College is located in Farming- ville. It is in the Farmingville school and election districts , but not in the fire district , he said. While Selden claims the ground on which the college stands , tax and school records show otherwise , he declared. Farmingville residents seek the prestige of being a college town and the convenience of house-to- hoi se mail delivery their post of- fice could offer if it were the col- lege ' s post office , Mr. Brand said. He added that the trustees ' deci- sion has caused an \ erosion \ of the Farmingville postal district. Later , Count y Executive II. Lee Dennison exp lained that the col- lege trustees have complete auth- ority in this matter. The Board of Supervisors can only \ request\ them to reconsider their choice.

Opposition Is Voiced Against Ban on Pa rking In letters read to the Brookha- ven Town Board Tuesday mer- chants opposed the s p ate ' s decision to prohibit parking on the east side of Route 112 (Medford Ave- nue) from Clark Street for a dis- tance of 300 feet to the south. The State Traffic Commission took the action after a survey of parking practices was reported to find that parking in the area caused interference with the free flow of traffic. \We wonder why the small business man is being squeezed to the wall at every turn to please big store operators. \ said a letter from Allov Photo Supply of 382 M e (1 f o r d Avenue . Patchogue. \There ought to be some protec- tion for the small businessman in the operation of his business . \ The letter went on to recommend that the commission \ prevent all left turns into the Floyd Bennett store parking field\ and prevent drivers from exiting from the field. Letters expressing opposition to the state action were sent from Gassert Pharmacy of 374 Medford Avenue.

After a tizzy of shopping for clothes and bookbags down to the last pencil and eraser , the youngsters will be prepared foi- their first day of classes. The first day—who knows better than a mother what a joy, and a sorrow , a frustration and a relief that first day can be. For mother must try to keep her child or children in a somewhat quiet frame of mind. She must see that her student-to-be has washed be- hind the ears and scrubbed his nails. In the mad dashes between the early, early morning cartoons and the outfit neatly laid out on the bed , she must catch her \blithe spirit\ and straighten his tie or fix her bow and tie their shoelaces. Getting one ready for school is hard work , two is brutal , but three or four— help! So now he is all ready with one-half min- ute to spare before the bus comes. Mother goes to watch him off. Watching him stand there bathed in the kindly yellow rays of the morning sun , why, he looks angelic. What a darling Mother ' s child is! Here comes the bus! The kindergartener just can 't keep those tears from falling. He ' s not crying, his eyes are. The fi rst grader holds up his quivering- chin and places a peck upon Mother ' s cheek. Up the steps and away he goes. No one is left—except Mother. Can this be? As she gayly waves good-bye with a smile spread across her face , do small drops of water come rolling down her face ? Now she has a long dav ahead of her. Un- til 3 p.m. she will wonder who he has for a teacher , and does he like her , and is he getting along with the other children , and did he eat all his lunch , and did he remember his name and address , and oh , what if he misses the bus ? Oh dear ! Three o ' clock . It can 't be! Why, that sounds like a bus. I wonder if . . . there he is coming off the bus! Why darling, how did you get so messy? You like your teacher ? Good. Why didn ' t you finish youi cookies? Who is Johnny ? Well , Mother is glad you like school. Uhmm , what is this dead grasshopper doing in your bookbag? Oh , you are going to be a naturalist when you lirow up, just like Mr . Wakefield. And then there is tomorrow , and tomorrow, and tomorrow. The Exciting First Day of School As of today.
