UNO Will Boom Our Town t # • Cents m^m ^^^R^^^B - ^^H^^ Vol. 1, No. 15 Chappaqua, N. Y., February 7, 1946 EW CASTLE Frozen Foods Undamaged In Mt. Kisco Fire Young and Halstead Plant Suf­ fers Fire, Explosions; Con­ tents of Lockers are Safe. A fire in the basement of the Frozen Food Market and Locker Plant of Young & Halstead Com­ pany, Mt. Kisco, was discovered by Henry Campbell, an employee, about 8:45 on Friday night, Feb­ ruary 1. Mr. Campbell turned in the alarm and the local fire department responded promptly. The fire was thought to be un­ der control jn less than an hour but at about 10:00 P.M. three ex­ plosions, one severe and two minor ones from unknown causes shook the building and blew out both plate glass win­ dows from the front of the building. A general alarm was sounded about midnight. Bed­ ford Hills responded and helped at the fire and Katonah equip­ ment stood by at the Kisco fire house. The fire, which according to Jack Shelly was one of the most stubborn in his entire ex­ perience, was finally brought under control at about 6:00 A.M. Saturday morning. F. Irving Starbuck, President of the company, who was called from his home together with A. S. White, manager of the Locker Plant, gave great credit to the local Fire Department for their efforts in confining the fire to the main building, which in ad­ dition to part of the Locker Plant was occupied by the Foster Engineering Company and Wil­ liam S. Hunt, respectively. Mr. Starbuck paid great tri­ bute to several of the Young & Halstead Company employees many of whom stayed on the job until morning and helped to remove the records and fixtures from the Locker Plant office. He expressed his gratitude to the goodly number of local towns- (Continued on Page 10) Big Cash Prize Contest Coming $250 To Be Awarded By New Castle News Watch the New Castle News!

This was the inauguration of weekly round trip air passenger service direct from New York to the Scandinavian countries. After considerable ceremony, which included christening of the plane by ona of the passen­ gers, Signe Hasso, Swedish-born motion picture actress, the Scan­ dinavia left at 10:00 A.M., the scheduled hour. Mrs. Cora Judd, who had said good-bye to her husband in the early morning, was somewhat startled to re­ ceive a telephone call from him at 10:30 explaining that they had been forced to return to the field because of trouble with Referendum On Firehouse Site Serious considerations face home owners now residing with­ in the UNO selected site. The prospects of ouster from homes, some of which have been in families for generations, and the unwelcome problem of finding new places to live during the most severe housing shortage and building deadlock in history, are very disturbing. Some of the uncertainties of the future are set forth in the following questions, for which best tentative answers are provided: Q. Will I be compelled to move? A. Some people will—others may be permitted to remain as tenants, on a lease basis. Q. If I have to sell, bow trill values be determined? A. Fair compensation is prom­ ised by State Dept. officials and UNO Committee members. Q. Have I a valid position in ob­ jecting to sell? A. No. You have no choice. Q. Will towns and cities suffer loss of taxes? A. Yes. But a plan to com­ pensate for such loss is under consideration by the Federal Government. Q. If I remain in my bouse as a tenant, will I require a pass to leave and reenter the area?

The object of the purchase is to acquire land as a site for an additional firehouse. UNO South Line 4 Miles From Chappaqua Profound Effect on Community Sure to Result From Nearby Influence of World Capital The sudden announcement that the UNO committee select­ ed 42 square miles of Westches­ ter County and Connecticut as its first choice for the perman­ ent headquarters of the UNO was featured in six-column head- l.nes in the New York Herald Tribune indicating the tremen­ dous importance of this proposal to the entire area. The Town of New Castle, which is only a stone's throw from the western boundries of the location, will inevitably be vitally affected if the world capital becomes our near neighbor. It is reported that a potential population of between fifty and 75,000 people will form a com- (Continued on Page 2) Koskta Due From Lidice Chappaqua Resident Confers With Benes, Czech President Scheduled to arrive by plane in New York on Friday, February 8th, William Kostka, of Roaring Brook Road, Chappaqua, has completed his mission to Czechoslovakia on behalf of the Lidice memorial. During his visit he conferred with His Excellency President Edward Benes, cham­ pion of Balkan democracy, and visited the site of the memorial which is marked now only by a simple cross.
