If your child will .be five years of age by December 31, 1951, he may enter kindergarten in Sep­ tember. While the education law does not require a child to at­ tend school before he is seven years of age, he is subject to the state and local regulations re­ quiring prompt and regular at­ tendance if he is entered before he is seven years old.

Brady of the Church of St. John and St. Mary. In case of rain, the program will be held indoors in the Hor­ ace Greeley auditorium. The observance here will be­ gin with a parade which will form as usual at Ridgewood Ter­ race at 10:15 a.m. and will follow a line of march along Bedford Road to Victory Corners for a brief service, thence down King Street and south on Greeley Ave­ nue to the Quaker Street over­ head for services at the memorial flagpole and honor roll. Grand marshal for the parade will be Roderick B. Travis, Town Attor- (Continued on Page 21) Hardscrabble Road and Martin Huberth of Brevoort Road who will take the places of incum­ bent councilmen Frank WaddeJl and W. R. Cubbins, both of whom have made clear their intention not to run again. The ticket of the regular Re­ publican organization for the primaries will therefore consist of the following: for supervisor, Robert B. Stewart; for council- men, Nicolas Harvey and Martin Huberth; for justices of the peace, Henry C. Adams and Ho­ garth S. Sweet; for school di­ rectors, Mrs. Lester P. Marasco and Charleo E. Wertheimer. Mr. Huberth is at present a member of the New Castle Plan­ ning Board and Mr. Harvey is a member of the Millwood Fno Company. The opening date for filing of petitions of candidates for the primary is June 5, and the lust day for filing is July 17. At pre­ sent there is not in sight in New Castle any independent opposi­ tion to the ticket named at the Tuesday meeting and the No­ vember election will probably become a clear-cut contest be­ tween the Republican organiza­ tion here and the Democrats if a slate is entered by that recent­ ly resurgent party. Democratic candidates will not be named until after the AugUot primary when delegates to a Town con­ vention are elected for the pur­ pose of choosing a ticket. 69 Make The Grade As Peace Officers Sixty-nine members of the New Castle Police Auxiliary, who had attended fifty percent or more of the sessions in the re­ cently completed three-month police training course, received their appointments as peace of­ ficers at graduation ceremonies in Horace Greeley cafeteria Tuesday evening, May 15, at which the principal speaker was Guthrie Shaw, Westchester County Director of Civil Defense. With George Warburton, lieu­ tenant of the newly appointed officers, handling part of the meeting, and Donald Owen, cap­ tain of the new company, acting as chairman, a list of speakers\ was heard which included Mr. Shaw; Hamilton Hicks; Clifford Fisher, deputy to the local di­ rector of Civil Defense; and councilman Joseph Burpo of the Town Board's police committee, who handed out the appoint­ ments and identification cards.
