Of coarse everyone 'knows the old gag about the mail car ­ rier who could find nothing better to do on his day off than take a long walk. Mnch the same sort of thing was done on Thanksgiving day by Eddie Bartlett, descendant eff one of the signers of the Dec­ laration of Independence, and chef at the Lnnch Wagon. After cooking a 30 ponnd turkey that won the warm ap ­ proval of Fontaine Fox at the Lunch Wagon, ’ E^ie went to his lodgings *(to use an old English expression) and began on another one. Assisted by Ethel Martin, diarming wife of Johnny Mar ­ tin, the new plumber, Eddie served up a bird that was a duplicate of his lunch wagon effort. Those who enjoyed tiiis were ^Mr. and Mrs. Frank Large, Mr. and Mrs. John M. Martin, Mr. and Mrs. John P. Martin, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Thorpe, Francis and Robert Thorpe, Jake Stey, Frands CFat) Stey, Bud Large, Joe Dietx and last, but not least, in addition to Eddie himself, Frank Leach, the handsome po­ lice officer, who was off duty. Frank took bit coat off and stood on no ceremony. Fontaine -Fox ate his noon ­ day Thanksgiving dinner at the Lnnch Wagon because he was so busy drawing pictures of the village half-wit and the power ­ ful Katrina all day that he couldn ’ t go home to his regular dinner until the evening; LOCAL EXCHANGITES AT ROSLYN DINNER Daniel O ’ Connell, secretary of the Exchange Club of Manhasset, and Donald Couper, publisher and owner of the Manhasset Mail, were ^ests Monday night in Roslyn of the Rbt- lyn Exchange Clnb at the club ’ s reg ­ ular dinner.^ Arthur J.

Mr. Westermayris subject will probab^ be Venice pud Italy. It is expected that many Manhasset peo ­ ple will want to attend the lecture. They may obtain tickets which will be 60 cents each from Daniel O ’ Con ­ nell, of Manhasset. The Roslyn members were invited to attend the dance of the Manhasset Exchange Clnb at' DuTMds on Saturday night, December 17.

It was decided that the Manhasset Civie Association hi conjunction- w ith the United Civic Associatons of North Hempstead, shonld redouble their efforts to secure a similar re ­ duction for the entire township of North Hempstead. J. B. O ’ Cosinell reported that ..the petition for the instsillation of orna ­ mental lights on the widened part of Plandome Road had been presented to the Town Board who deferred ac ­ tion on same pending further signa ­ tures to the petition w^iich the Com ­ mittee is now endeavoring to secure. Mr. Vanderbeek reported that Mr. Mullon, of ^e Town Board, hsri in ­ structed thd Lighting Company to install immediately 7 lights on Bay Driveway, 4 lights on Plandome Conrt and 4> lights on Park Ave. It was decid^ to request Mr. Koh ­ ler, Town Commissioner of- High ways, to erect signs at the comers of Dennis St., School St. ana Plan- dome Road, indicating that they were dead end streets so that they would not be impeded by through-going traffic. Because of its present extremely narrow condition and its. probablg fu ­ ture impo^nM as a thoronghfw ’ e, it was derided to consider the ques ­ tion of widening Manhasset Avenue with as little expense as oossible._ TTie poor condition of Bay Drive ­ way and Plandome Court was gi^n serious consideration, the opinion being that every infiuence should be brought to bear on Mr. Kohler, To'wn Commissioner, to include the recon ­ struction of these two roads in next year ’ s budget. The question of snow removal was reviewed but laid over for further eonsideratioa at the next meeting. George Smith, of the Board of ■Water Commissioners, appeared at the meeting to outline the $155,000 expenditure for which an issue of bonds is to \be voted upon on Decem ­ ber 16. Mr. Smith disclosed further information of the Water Depart ­ ment and the efficient service ren=' dei^ throughout the large area inv eluded in the Lakeville-Manhasset water district. Inj conclusion, Mr. Smith made an imprntant suggestion to the effect that a certain area ly ­ ing south of the pumping station be­ tween Shore Road and the water- ‘ -»i Valley Boasts a Police Booth K=>k K=>*. **^^7 K=>« Material and Labor Donated By Joseph M.

Firstly, it it a little stmetare of which even Great Neck, with Hs nice .homes and nieer people, wonld be prood to own. Secondly, practically every one in tto sm - , tion helped personally in Ha actual construction, while some of the few who could not,spare the time, helped wHh money end materiaL everybody helped willingly and gladly in one way - or aaother, and 'we are justly and ' rightfully proud that thnre am no sladcers in evr community..

At the end of these two years someone got a bright idea, namely to pr^de a booth if the County furnished tile 'wherewithal to fill same. It proved a very fortunate idea this,, and from that date on tilings began to hum. The first task was to find a dollar a year man, and saddle him with all the TCsponsibility. After a brief sea^ Mr. Harry Schneider was anwinted on nothing a year, wl^ Miehael Jaffe agreed to famish the land for the same consideration. It was an ans- pirions beginning and things went along just fine with Harry doing most of the work and ev ­ erybody satisfied thereby.” Thns the eeld, matter of fact report of tise fact finding com­ mittee.

She is a Peruvian, wbo was bom at Liverpool, educated in Belgium, and became American by adoption. As the daughter of the Pem-rian Minister to England, she enjoyed the benefits of an aristocratic ancestry and an early-shtistic envfromnent, to ­ gether with the educational and cul ­ tural opportunities of the European courts. On her mother ’ s side she has the traditional nobility of the Incsm in her blood. Her grandmother was the last Inca princess of Pern, and the first Peravian battleship was paid for -wHh her mother ’ s peorts. It was pure chance that emharked D ’ Ahrarez upon an artistic career. The story has been well told by a Writer in the London Times: “ When D ’ Alvarez was about 16 year^ oM, the Columbian Ambassador at Lon ­ don, who was her godfather, ga-ve a reception, for which he engaged the services of a noted singer. A dense fog prevented the singer's appear ­ ance, so Margoarite offered to take the singer ’ s place and gave the auffi- ence a group, of okt Spanish songs, with the result that she immediate ­ ly became t^ rage, and mnch to the dismay of her parents, declared she would follow the career ef mask.
