XLIV NO 50 HAVERSTRAW, N. T., NOVEMBER 13, 1952 TELEPHONE HAVERSTRAW 2000 PRICE TEN cents ! xc t h THE BANK CORNER The woods and forests have beer, opened to hunters again, but they aren ’ t much safer, except from fire. Although it is almost the tail end of the season of falling leaves, there remain two great dangers. Any automobile will skid like crazy on wet leaves on smooth pavement. The other great danger from fall ­ en leaves is kids. Childi'en get bur ­ ned in leaf fires. Children play in piles of fallen leaves and cars run into the pile of leaves and hit the children. You can ’ t be up to kids. Some of them have found a new place to play handball — the walls of the Gurnee avenue culvert. And only two weeks ago, residents of that street were complaining to the vil ­ lage about cars going up and down the street 40 miles an hour. Chief Jack Spissinger is back on the job after his recent oper ­ ation. His schnozzola is not quite the same shape, but he ’ s feeling much better, thank you. Mavge was getting alpng so well with her driving And then that other nasty car had to hit her. And it really happened that way. There ’ s a brand-new president of the Red-Face with Embarrass ­ ment Club — George Sosna. After all his years in the automotive business, Geoi*ge finally did it. A customers car was in the place for some kind of service. According to the story the boys are telling on G-' ‘ orge, he sold that same car to another customer, who actually took possession. These stories sometimes grow, but the new own ­ er is rupposed to have had a com ­ plete winterizing job done, when the car had already been winter ­ ized. So George had to get the car back, and stand the expense of the extra winterizing job. George has company though. Another well known citizen wants to jcin the club. He attended his first meeting of a volunteer fire company he had just joined, and the next morning found the inside of his automobile gutted by fire. He couldn ’ t even blame anybody, for he was the only one in the car, and closed the windows and lock ­ ed the car before leaving it for the night. Lots of room for new members in the Red-Face with Embarrassment Club. PVT. SMITH, 24, TO BE BURIED SUNDAY HERE BODY ARRIVED TODAY; WARREN AVE. YOUTH DIED IN KOREA IN SEPT. The body of Pvt.

The Armistice Day holiday Tuesday nearly proved fatal for two Garnerville boys, who were injured when a live military-type shel ’ exploded while they were “ seeing what makes it lick. ” Town police reported that Rich ­ ard Poynton, 12-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Poynton sr, and Charles Theis, 13, son of Mr. and I'lrs. Charles Theis sr, sus ­ tained severe hand and arm in juries when the shell, about five inches long and a half-inch thick, exploded in the Theis cellar as the boys were working or. it with ham ­ mer and nail. Richard, “ Dixie, ” to his family and playmates, was given emer ­ gency treatment by Dr. Kurt B. Blatt and underwent surgery Tues ­ day afternoon al Good Samaritan Hospital, Suffern. He sustained three fractures of the right hand and a severed tendon in the right arm. Loses Part of Finger Charles, treated by Dr. Richard J. Sullivan, lost the end of his ring finger on the left hand and sus ­ tained powder burns on the same limo. He did not require hospital treatment. PoHce said the Poynton young ­ ster, who owned the shell, went into tbe Theis cellar with Char ­ les at about 10:30 a m. They ap ­ parently did not want to detonate the slicU but to find out if the cas ­ ing was loaded with real powder. Police said the “ business end ” of the shell discharged into the con ­ crete floor of the cellar and the casing split open as if it had been cut v; ’ th a can open. Richard was holdmg the shell slug-side down as the other boy hit it. Charles, whose father is man ­ ager of the Haverstraw office of the Rockland Light and Power Company, is in the eighth grade of the Garnerville school. Richard, whose father is plant manager of Kay-Fries Chemicals, Inc., West Haver«'traw, is in the seventh grade of the same school. The families are neighbors on Hudson View Ter ­ race, which intersects Route 202 just below Rubesh ’ s Hill on the highway. Patrolman Frank Albert and Lawrence Burke, who investigat ­ ed, fear that similar live shells may be in the neinghborhood or in the possession of other families with children. They urge persons hav ­ ing them or knowing where they are located to turn them over to authorities for disposal. Explosion Causes Injuries Richard, police said, found the shell while going to school and it is tliought it may have dropped from a military conveyance. The shell is tentatively identified as a .SO-calibre tracer of the type used by rapid anti-aircraft artillery. Pa ­ trolman Albert said it has the number 43 and the letters DM on it. Both boys were injured by the explosion. The Poynton youngster recently had boils and was given penicillin. As a result, the hos ­ pital has been unable to adminis ­ ter the drug again to prevent in ­ fection. His sister, Dorothy, is re ­ covering from a broken collar bone.
