T o get ready to make one, no one is busy perusing the Wall Street Journal, checking on bank rates o r getting advice from the accountant. No o n e is fending ofT phone calls from firms interested in p roviding “helpful** inform ation. M o st of us go it alone. W ith “the season** starting, m ajoi purchases m u st be m ade, whether for a new p a ir o f leather shoes a n d a woolen o r l a t h e r c o at o r for d ressy a ttire for services m a rking the Jewish New Year, for b a r m itzvahs a n d b a t m itzvahs, for weddings a n d other fall celebrations. Because m any will b e spending large sums on these investm ents, they d o a lot o f c o m p arison shopping. Usually, they will find that local m e rchants p v e the best value for their m o n ey a n d a lso p rovide rouch-nceded advice a n d coun­ sel, a long with long-term service. We’re used to thinking o f jewelry purchases in terms of investments. T h a t engagem ent ring m eans a Ufeiimc com­ m itm e n t. And many o ther jewelry items a rc passed down generations. But there arc other items we buy because we expect foT them t o s e n e u s fo r y ears. O u r b e s t bet f o r a happy result is to buy them close to hom e from a trusted friend, a local merchant. Fashion statements That old refrain “baseball, hot dogs, a p p le pic a n d lemo­ nade.** is going Vo have t o a d d o n e more especially American item, the lee shirt. W hy do young p eople all o v er the w o rld scram b le for tee shins with anything in English o n them? Because to them, tee shirts and their variety of messages symbolize th a t special freedom of expression we Americans have, that many of them can only wish for. The v a n eiy in tec shirts is trem endous, from expensive to bargain, from h> League to tasteless, from satin to plain. Each has a message, o r m o re often, a d ream . A fter all. how- many H a rvard students have you actually seen w eanng a Har\-ard tec shin, espcaally one spelled “ Hci^erd.*^ How m any wearing skateboard motifs could really soar off a ram p ? And how many tiny batm en can there be*' In America, it seems, eseryone has a dream . A n d the tec shirts tell all. A CONTINGENT from the Freepo rt Auxiliary of the Association for the Help of Retarded Children will be atten d ing the AHRC's annual Luncheon and Fashion Show in early October, marking the for­ tieth anniversary of the organizationY founding in October, IW9.

In addi­ tion. many o( them, as well as business operators, took the trouble to haul their refuse to our Tranifer Sta­ tion. The Public Works Department manned that facility from 8 a jn. to 5 p.m. and later expanded it until 7 p-m. A)j together, we nicely weathered what could have been a most unsightly, and potentially unhealthy situs- Uon. We certainly all appre­ ciated the rapid cleanup that w a s a^ecompHshed a t the strike's eonelusioci. A reminder to all that dur­ ing such emergencies the Vil­ lage govemm eot m o st rely on the electronic media to get infonnatioQ out immediately Sudt annourttements are car­ ried by WBAB (1240 AhO.
