There are millions of children in the world today who never saw or heard of a toy. If each child would do­ nate one toy to the American Legion's Tide of Toys, it would ipg joy and happiness to some r, unfortunate child in Eur­ ope. \Our goal this year is 10 mil­ lion toys. It is absolutely necessary that the donor of the toy attach a (Continued on Page 19) WINTER WINBOWPANE Year Ended Quietly By Town Board The end-of-the-year meeting of the New Castle Town Board held at Town Hall, Thursday, — December 28, as required by law, was by all odds the quietest and most uneventful of the Board's year. Relic of an older way of doing things, this \annual\ meeting is required by New York state town law to be held on De­ cember 28, or within three days thereafter, in any town where there is no auditor, and it was formerly a busy session when all accounts were settled and the Town books were balanced. Un­ der present methods of state au­ diting and control, the meeting is a harmless anachronism which the legislature has not got around to revising, as it has neglected to revise more important out-mod- ed sysems of administration. The most salient piece of busi­ ness not related to the official chores of the annual meeting was the proclamation by Supervisor Robert Stewart of January 6 as Tide of Toys Day in Chappaqua. . : ; Toys will be collected under thet^v auspices of the Chappaqua Amer­ ican Legion at the vacant lot at the King Street and Greeley in- (Continued on Page 16) The above has no particular news value. It just happens to be, in our opinion, the most beauti ful picture taken in Chappaqua during 1950. It was taken by William Carlebach during the late cold spell. The point of view is from inside the Quill, on Greeley Avenue, looking out through its front window on the shadowy figure of George Goetz, the Quill's proprietor. These are prosaic de tails. What fascinated us was the approach to the best in abstract design that these every-day forms presented. You can't be sure there isn't a good deal in abstract painting when you see a pho tograph like this, though you equally sure that the abstract must begin somewhere with the real, as this did. Millwood Rose House Had Its Day Of Fame Under the Gay Piersons by Alison Birch (Editorial note: because of the inception of our report from Mill­ wood called \Roughly Speaking\ by West Ender we thought our readers might be interested in the \rose house\ which was fea­ tured so prominently in the Louise Pierson book from which West Ender, very happily we think, borrowed his column's title.) The Millwood Rose House was built in 1927 and purchased by its present owners, Frederick J. Luhmann and E. H. Kipp in 1934. Between those dates lies the story that gave it a national fame that can be pointed to by few if any hot-houses in the (Continued on Page 19) FOR LONG HAIRS Beginning January 8, the price of haircuts in Chappaqua will vault from 85c to $1.10, and the price of shaves from 50c to 75c. Other prices will continue at present levels. There is not truth to the rumor, we hear, that a new home per­ manent for men is about to be put on the market. Library Meeting To Feature Smith H. Allen Smith, Chappaqua's most celebrated author will be the guest speaker at the annual meeting of the Chappa qua Library Association to be held Monday, January 8, at 8:15 p. m. at the Library on Senter Street. The public is cordially invited. In answer to a request for information about his speech, Mr. Smith telegraphed J. Cal- lender Heminway, chairman of the Library Board, as follows: \The subject of my address will be 'How to not understand T. S. Elliott.\ In support of my thesis I shall discuss 'How to (Continued on Page 6) TSfew Feature^ For several weeks now the New Castle News has carried a 12-page feature supplem e n t. With this issue readers will find also a 16-page monthly magazine section which is scheduled to be included with the first issue each month. To complete* our expan­ sion we add beginning soon a four-page four color comic sec­ tion, scheduled to appear week­ ly. Our ability to continue these features depends upon the syn­ dicates who supply them and who are faced with great produc­ tion difficulties at this time be­ cause of mounting costs and re­ strictions. In any event the New Castle News will make every effort to give its readers a complete fam­ ily newspaper including the very best local coverage and the finest newspap e r features. Reserve your copy with your newsdealer every week and avoid disap­ pointment. 0 DEFENSE—FOR 5 CENTS The Chappaqua Library has placed on sale for five cents a copy, at the request of Col. Wm. J. Morden, New Castle director of defense, the pamphlet, \You and the Atom Bomb.\
