(] Mount Kisco 5863 c Despite poor weather, 120 youngsters spent the evening, Saturday, February 9th, at Open House at the Greeley High School and enjoyed themselves thoroughly with the many games provided for their pleasure. The consumption of colas was not at all affected by the damp weather as ten cases were emptied in three hours. The hosts and host­ esses for the evening were: Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hagberg, Mr. and Mrs. Matt Antonovich, Mr. and Mrs. George Williams, Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Wessells. The Open House dates for February will be announced in the assembly by Dean George Baldwin. The Chappaqua Dads, hosts of Open House, hope to add new attractions at each future event in order to keep the in­ terest of the youth alive at all times. However, due to the scar­ city of suitable table and other games, contributions of unused games would be greatly appre­ ciated by the Dads as well as the youngsters who will use them. Ideas as to the future operations of Open House will also be welcomed from the par­ ents. Any male voter of New Castle is eligible for membership in Chappaqua Dads. Applications may be obtained from any of the following officers: Robert Wilkins, Ralph Figatt, Stephen Wessells, Joseph Searing, Matt Antonovich.

Residents of the town of North Castle will soon have a Book­ mobile to bring books to their very doorsteps. The green-pan­ elled truck was made possible through a $5,000 gift for the ex­ tension of library service, given by Walter S. Gifford, Sr., in memory of his son Lt. (j.g.) Wal­ ter, Jr., who was killed in a plane crash in the Pacific in 1944. After considerable discussion, it was decided that the greatest number of people could be served by a \library on wheels.\ All those connected with the pro­ ject are volunteers and all are working enthusiastically to solic­ it additional books for the anti­ cipated increase in circulation. The Bookmobile, will give door to door service in all rural areas of the Township and will be staffed by two volunteers. One will drive and the other will stamp and issue books. The committee working on the project includes Miss Julia Ben- net, Mrs. John A. Hill, R. Eugene Curry and Carroll M. Snyder with Mrs. Warren J. Hill as gen­ eral chairman. He Lost His Baggage .... A staff sergeant was held over on Okinawa for medical care after his release from a Japanese pri­ son camp. When ready to leave for the States he confided to the Red Cross girl that he was wor­ ried about his baggage. It was lost, he explained. The girl in­ quired further and found out that his \baggage\ consisted of a Red Cross \kit bag\—the one he had been given on his re­ lease from prison camp! Cholly Chappaqua Says: This week the first stalk of the first spring crocus was seen pushing its way above ground. With equal confidence in a bright future, Beatrice Helen Canniff up and got married. The lucky man was Private Nicholas DeKilio of Brooklyn, New York. Slowly but inevitably the days are lengthening and spring is on it's way. Before too many months have passed, bright new babies in new carriages will be sunning themselves on the porches of Chappaqua. Notable among these new arrivals will be David Bruce Dedde, born last Saturday to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Dedde of Memorial Drive; and David Marshall Roach born January 22nd to Mr. and Mrs. John Roach of Campfire Road. Chicago, we are happy to report is not far behind Chappaqua in these matters. The windy city also boasts the arrival of a new small boy for whom this should be the first of many pleasant springs. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wendall B. Ward, are former Chap­ paqua residents. This was a quiet week-end at the Lobrano's. Sandy who had been home from Lawrenceville after his mid-term exams, went back to school. Mrs. Lobrano's mother, Mrs. Alexander C. Flick, had also deserted them. Mrs. Flick left on Wednesday. After a brief visit in Washington, with her son, Major Hugh Flick, she will go on to Florida. The Benjamin Richards of Prospect Drive also had a quiet time. Benjamin, jr., had gone back to Harvard. The Gelisthorpes of Quaker Village were luckier. Welles- ley wouldn't claim Susan till Tuesday. Lewis Raymond of Hardscrabble Road, who has been in Seattle for the last six weeks, arrived home on Saturday. . Mr. Raymond had scarcely settled down in his easy chair before he got up again to let in Lieut. F. R. Horn of the Army Air Corps who had arrived to visit the Raymonds for the week-end. Another couple entertaining week-end guests were the Nor­ man Davises who had Mr. Davis' brother and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Maclin P. Davis, of Nashville, Term, with them. At the S. Fels Hecht's on Roaring Brook Road it was Mrs. Hecht's relatives who won the race for the guest room. They were Mrs. Hecht's brother, Mr. R. Byron Conrad and his wife. The Conrads are leaving for South Africa at the end of the month. Mrs. Conrad is petite, brunette and extremely pretty. It is hard to picture her in South Africa, but that is what her husband expects to do. He is a photographer, she writes. Once in South Africa Mr. Conrad does not intend to devote himself entirely to photographing his wife. His preference, Cholly was told, is for elephants. Miss Nancy Bakken, niece of Mr. and Mrs. Elmaar Bakken, of Chappaqua Ridge, spent the week-end in Norfolk, Virginia. Capt. Robert Overstreet of Hardscrabble Road, flew to Boston for the week-end. Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Pykett of Hardscrabble Road were also out of town over the week-end. The Pykett's did not stray so far afield as Capt. Overstreet. Together with their son, Danny, they made New York their destination. Mr. and Mrs. Donald West of St. Elmo Hill left for Chicago on Lincoln's birthday. While there, they will visit the John Camph's who, as former Chappaqua residents, are well remem­ bered here. Last week Mrs. J. Callender Hemingway entertained at luncheon in honor of Mrs. Henderson Mathews of Old Roaring Brook Rd. Mrs. Hemingway's guests were Mrs. Richard C. Heurtley, Mrs. H. C. Wedgwood, Mrs. Norman Davis and Mrs. Alfred Forsyth. Sunday night the Boy Scouts were the excuse for a very nice supper party at which Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Thomas of Highland Drive entertained Rusty Allen, Bunny Hutin, Buzz Wright, David Bakken and Donald Pierson. These enterprising lads are slated to become the new den chiefs. The Girl Scouts will be the subject under discussion on Thursday when Mrs. Howard Korman entertains Mrs. Henry Loeb, Mrs. Dwight Collin, Mrs. Woodsin Butte and Mrs. Robert Wilkins at luncheon. Mrs. Korman is in charge of recruiting new Scout leaders. Plans for the spring meeting of the P. T. A. were discussed at an informad meeting of Junior High class mothers at the home of Mrs. Franklin Montross, jr., Monday. Mrs. Jack Diamond, Mrs. LeRoy Dreher, Mrs. H. C. Wedgwood and Mrs. Lambert Davis were among those participating. On February 21st, Mr. and Mrs. G. Edwin Rogers, Miss Joan Rogers and Mrs. Albert Baeder are going to St. Peters­ burg, Florida, for a change of scene. Cholly is also going to have a change of scene. Being less fortunately endowed than the Rogers, in matters pertaining to carfare, Cholly is going to wait right here in Chappaqua until the scenery changes. On Monday night The Bristol Fire Engine Co. entertained at dinner in honor of the following returned service men: Rich­ ard Earl, Harold Winckler, Stanley Johnson, Emil Burkhardt, Richard Carr and Lloyd Cornell. This was a stag affair. Cholly wants to build himself a house. Cholly's architect has written him to the effect that this is a dangerous enterprise for one of Cholly's limited resources. There is a strong possibil­ ity, he feels, that Cholly may get as far as the roof and run out of money. Cholly has written back suggesting the possibility of erecting the roof first.
