Nasierowski was out of town and could not be reached for comment. The HELM will contact him on his return and publish his comments in next week's edition.) Allen Dismisses Charges Against Nasierowski James E. Allen, Jr., Commissioner of Education, dismissed the appeal made by 38 ap- pellants, who through a petition, sought the removal of Edward F. Nasierowski of Lynbrook as a trustee of the Malverne School Board. The appellants petition presented by attorney Paiil Zuber, sought Nasierowski's removal on the grounds of his campaign strategy and allegations as to his convictions concerning segregation. Nasierowski was elected to a three year term on the school board last year in a heated campaign in which he defeated Dr. Lloyd De- laney, a resident of Lakeview. lien The State Department of Educa- '\'^tion and Commissioner Allen had been criticized by a number of or- ganizations and individuals, includ- ing this newspaper, for the long de- lay in taking action on this case. The petition was filed with the com- missioner last November. In rendering his decision, Com- missioner Allen stated \It must he noted tlmt tlie petition herein is not verified\ and that the appelants \liave wliolly failed to prove their unverified allegations by a pre- ponderance of evidence.\ Tlie decision went on to say \Un- der tlie provision of Section 306 of the Education Law, a board mem- C j^^^ber niiiy not be removed from ofTioe ^'unless he has been guilty of any willful violation or neglect of duty luuler this chapter, or any otlu^r act ix-rtaining to common schools , . . or willfully disobeying any dc^cision, ordcu', rule or regulation of the regents or of the commissioner of education. The record before me does not .show that respond(>nt's statements or actions fall mider the provisions of this section.\ Allen also stated that the appel- lants were \guilty of laches in not having brought this appeal until more than six months had elapsed after the election campaign here in- lllllllllllllllllllllllillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllH^ and has received all of her edu- cation in the Lynbrook school sys- tem. The Lynbrook Chapter of A.F.S. under the leadership of its presi- dent, Mrs. Leonard Wagner, feels singularly honored and proud in having Judith selected by National Headquarters of A.F.S. for this scholarship. Fireworks Illegal Possession, sale, or use of fire- worics in Lynbrook is against the law. This reminder was passed along by Lynbrook Police Chief Walter Waring who warned that firecrackers were prohibited by state law and village ordinances. \Offenders will be aiTested and prosecuted,\ said Waring. \Cases of those under 16 years of age will be handled by the Family Court.
