A goal of ten thousand dollars in new capitol stock was set, to be devoted to modernizing the Chappaqua and Pleasantville stores, installing a meat depart ment in the Pleasantville store, and increasing the inventory and services of the cooperative. Norman Dieter, Treasurer, re ported that for the first time since 1940, the two stores showed an operating margin for the first ten months of 1945. The guest speaker of the evening, Mr. Hugh Wolf, president of the Eastern Cooperative League, spoke of plans for post-war de 5 velopment of the Eastern Whole sale Cooperative, and said that Chappaqua Cooperative's present volume of business warranted VICTORY FEAST FOR GRID TEAM GOOD NEWS INDEED. Good news for hundreds of our children, and perhaps even better news for the parents — for Santa Claus is really and truly coming to town. Parents have felt it an annual duty to take their children to the city at Christmastime to see Santa Claus, and good fun as it always is, both for parent and child, it is a tiring trip indeed. Christmas crowds this year are going to be larger than ever before. City stores are already jammed with crowds. Why not bring Santa Claus right to our town and save the long trek to the city on the part of hundreds of harassed parents and children? THAT IS JUST WHAT THE NEW CASTLE NEWS .PROPOSES TO DO AS A PUBLIC SERVICE. During the week before Christmas, December 17 through 22, a real honest- to-goodness Santa Claus will be here in Chappaqua to greet all the children who come to see him, and he will have a pre sent for each and every one. He will be in attendance along side his Christmas tree all day during the week. All expenses connected with the project will be borne by the New Castle News. Those who have heard about the plan have expressed great enthusiasm for the idea, children are excited and parents highly appreciative that they will not have to lose hours and hours taking the children to the city. More details about Santa Claus' arrival time and place, will be published in the New Castle News next week.

Police Ban Nite Parking With the approach of winter and the almost daily threat of snow, a new problem looms. Last year the Road Commis sion was unable to clean the pub lic highways adequately because of parked cars. It is a violation of the state laws to leave parked cars without lights. We should remember to park our cars in a drive or lot off the public roads at night. Because of the danger to the other motorists and the obstruc tion element to road clearance the police department will patrol all highways late at night every night—to protect our own safety.
