To many people a bomb scare means nothing more than a day's vacation for students and teachers. and teachers However, nothing could be further from the truth as evidenced by last Monday's bomb liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin iiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiinn scare in particular. To begin with it was fortunate that the rural busses were held so\ that rural students could be put back on and sent home rather than standing out in the cold waiting for busses to be recalled. little thought is given to the fact that elementary students have to be sent home with the teachers and principal 0*&*t*' iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiini URGE ATTENDANCE AT MEETING Dear Editor This is just a final reminder to all Senior Citizens, 65 years of age or older, that they should make every effort to be present at this important meeting (to you) of the Ogdensburg Board of Education meeting to be held tonight at the OFA cafeteria at .8 p.m. There are, no doubt, many close friends or acquaintances, sons or daughters of these needy, and near poverty stricken senior citizens who should, not only, be at this meeting themselves to support this needed consideration for these old folks in need for this partial school tax redemption; but, try to make arrangements to fur- nish transportation to this meeting for the aging. Although I, Fred Kleemeier, age 72, am acting as one of the leaders, it is a social service to the needy. I hope never to be in need of the partial Tax redemption. I fully realize that it might raise my own real estate and school tax a few pennies a $i,000 to be able to give thef ew poverty stricken aged 65 or older a little consideration. Everyone should be in accord with this Partial Tax redemption. The subject or area that tops all of ten important subjects to be thoroughly discussed during the National White House Conference on Aging (Nov. 28- Dec. 2) is INCOME for the Aging. Followed by Health, Transportation, Education, and others to mention a few more. Therefore, in what better way, can we help our local Aging then by cutting their expenses thru the Partial Tax Redemption route, which could serve as a better income- in reverse. Since it will be impossible for most of those over 65 yrs. of age to qualify when filling out, a formal application, let's help those that need help, to make it possible to remain to live in their own home that they desire, rather than put them in a position where they would have to give up and move out. They are proud old folks and need this con- sideration, ' So towrt folks, let's help these old folks get to this important meeting, and be there yourselves to support their deserving cause. Sincerely, FredW. Kleemeier Edgar Ramie SUGGESTS MAYOR, COUNCILMAN BE PAID HALF Editor Dear Sir: This is my first letter \To the Editor\ and the reason I am provoked is because of the news release in Thursday's Journal stating that Mayor Byrnes laid a law on the table that could result in $3,500 per year for the Mayor's salary and $1000 per year for each .Alderman. Can someone answer these -questions so that I may understand? (1) Didn't the Charter state that there would be no salaries for elected of- ficials? (2) Didn't the voters mandate the Charter acceptance with a 6 to 1 majority? (3) Wasn't the NO salary for elected officials the main selling points to the voting citizens? minium iiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiliiiiiiillilllilllillllllllillllllllllllllllllllHI . (4) Weren't we told that $8000 of Aldermans salaries and $3500 Mayors salary would almost cover the cost of a City Manager? (5) Isn't the Mayors office supposed to be Honorary? (6) Weren't the official meetings reduced to once a month basis? (7) Didn't the Mayor accept nomination to that office fully knowing that the Charter stipulated NO salaries? . (8) Why weren't salaries mentioned during the recent campaign? .(9) Why did Alderman Kennedy evade questions regarding salaries at the forum sponsored by the Ogdensburg J.C.'s? (10) Are the salaries provided for in the budget? (11) My last question is \Who will vote for this?\ Obviously Mayor Byrnes will vote \yes\ as he is sponsoring the law. 1st ward - Alderman Herzog ad- vertised during the campaign that he would vote \no.\ 2nd ward - Alderman Kennedy will undoubtedy vote \yes\ now that he has 4 more years that the voters can forgive and forget, (see post script at end of letter). 3rd ward - Alderman Shoen was not a candidate for re-election and it has been rumored that he does not favor salary which could be a potential \No vote.\ • 4th ward - Alderman Cole a Republican was appointed by a democratic controlled Council to fill the unexpired term of Alderman Montroy Who resigned. Is this the tie breaking vote? Was this a condition of ap- pointment? In \Kelly Comments\ there was an endorsement for the Mayors salary but absolutely ho mention of a salary for alderman, Why? Again it looks, like we will be told with very little opportunity to voice • ob- jection. A public hearing, sure but it won't really do any good. Lets arbitrate, seeing as how City Hall will win, why-not consider a 50 per cent settlement _of $1750 for the Mayor and $500 for an Aldermans salary. Surely with the City Manager han- dling financing and basic public com- plaints the work load of elected officials has decreased proportionally. Thank you for letting me be heard and I would appreciate being signed. Aggravated P.S, In the Ogdensburg Journal issue of November 1st the day before election there was a picture o\f Mayor Byrnes and Councilman Kennedy along with another Democratic Candidate, in an advertisement it stated and I quote Mayor Byrnes \Democratic Coun- cilman agreed to run without salary - where does this leave Alderman Ken- nedy?

(AP) — €larkson College of Technology students and needy local youngsters won't be caught out in the cold this Christmas. The college's Society of Scabbard and Blade already has picked up arid is repairing eight trucklo'ads of toys for' Christmas- distribution through the Potsdam Neighborhood Center. i having no way of knowing whether or not the parents or a responsible adult are in the house. What about working parents or parents who have gone on a trip for the day? We are indeed for- tunate that no elementary student has been hurt or encountered a problem as yet to our knowledge. But this could happen. The instructional program is seriously interrupted in these cases. The secon- dary scheduling is hampered as are teachers' plans. Consider too, the cafeteria plans /wherein food is generally being prepared and many times has to-be disposed of. The elementary milk program is also greatly affected. Athletic events have to be cancelled aiid re-scheduled. ClerieaLsecretarial work falls behind schedule. On Monday, several company representatives, that had been awaited for 2-3 weeks tried to find someone at the main office only to discover the bomb, scare, locked doors etc. These company men were due here to help solve problems with new facilities arid equipment. Because they couldn't locate personnel due to the evacuation Of the building the\ school system will have to wait until they can schedule another visit - hence inconvenience, wasted time and money. When bomb scares occur oh Tuesday or Thursday, the George Hall elementary children lose the services of the Potsdam Tutorial Team for a day- . again a loss of time, money and in- structional progress. The list could go on and on. The teachers and administrators have been notified that the 2 days will be made up either at Thanksgiving, Christmas, spring vacation or Easter. Therefore, holiday plans have to be disrupted. It would seem that a verv severe penalty should be asked for anypiie involved in a bomb scare in view of the many complications outlined. OCTOBER FUNDING ALBANY, N.Y. (AP),— The State University at Albany has reported that $120,326 in sponsored funding was received By the university during October. The New York State Narcotic Addiction Control Commission made the largest grant of the month-^$38,631 for a drug education program oh the campus. Record Amount Being Spent On Homes In SLC NEW YORK-Homeowners in St. Lawrence County are spending a record amount these days On the maintenance and improvement of their property. Li the past year alorie, their ex- penditure for alterations, additions, repairs and general upkeep came to approximately $15,173,000, the figures indicate. This is\' distinct from theit normal week-to-week operating ex- penses. The estimate is based upon a sampling survey of dwellings in all sections of the country, made by the Department of Commerce, and upon data from other sources. The finding is that the average ex- penditure for residential upkeep and improvement in St. Lawrence County's regional area was about $413 per housing unit. Throughout the United States as a whole it Was $297. Most homeowners, it is noted, spend considerably more than the annual average in certain years, When major repairs' or improvements are called for. In other years they get along with smaller outlays. The scope of the home improvement trend is to be seen in the government's overall figures. They show that some $14.8 billion was spent in that direction in the past year. This, was $1.2 billion more than in the prior year. As for homeowners iri St. Lawrence County, how did they spend their $i5ii73,000 portion of this total? In general^ it is shown, about 60 percent of their expenditures were for additions, alterations\ and im- provements. The other 40 percent went for repairs and upkeep. Nearly half of this amount was for pain ting aiid decora ting. The re'st.was for plumbing, roofing, heating and miscellaneous. Local merchants selling lumber, hardware and other building, supplies have been profiting by this upsurge in home refurbishing. The turn in that direction is attributed to the fact that many families who would, ordinarily, have been moving into newer houses, at this stage; have been unable td do so. They have been hampered by the shortage of houses on the market, by the high cost of those that are available and by the prevailing interest rates on mortgages. i It&yno To Lay Off 125 At Massena Plant MASSENA—About 125 people will be furloughed at the St. Lawrence Reduction plant, Reynolds Metals Co., when the second half of the Number 2 potline is shut down. Reynolds closed the first half of the line at the end of September and 50 persons were affected. A spokesman for Reynolds said the action is part of a continuing effort to keep the aluminum supply^emand situation in balance. Any action to reactivate the potlines will hinge upon the extent of im- provement in the supply^demand structure, the spokesman- said. The spokesman said the company looks upon the Massena potline closing as a temporary move as it does action taken at other Reynolds Reduction Plants. Reynolds Metals has made cutbacks at five of their seven plants. The\ September and November cut- backs will reduce the work force at the St. Lawrence plant to around 625. The .peak employment figure was 800 per- sops. Reynolds Metals furnishes molten aluminim for the nearby Chevrolet, General Motors operation. The potline shut down will not affect the GM operation.
