Several members of the Franklin Manor _Civic Associa- tion have been distressed by the\ wanton destruction of trees in the recent residential develop- ment.

Mrs. Ruth Brandsema has re- covered from her recent illness and was able to return to her home last week. “In parts of Ohio and Indiana one sees that an effort has been made to preserve a farm wood lot, but there are practically no trees around the and it seems to me that we have lost sight of the fact that our trees have value in the preservation of the water level and also in preventing winds from blowing off topsoil. “All of the old highways in our country used to be bordered by trees. I suppose they were nar- row enough so that trees could shade them. Nowadays our superhighways are too broad for that. However, many of them are -built with a division in the center and I wish we might make a determined effort to plant trees right down the mid- die as well as along the sides of our roads so that we could not lose the beauty of highways over which trees used to arch,” (Reprinted by permission of United Features Syndicate Inc.) Certainly, some means can be found to preserve our trees. Several localities have initiated local ordinances which require approval for the removal of trees. White Plains, N. Y. Ete- quires a builder not only to pre- serve trees on building sites but to plant additional ones where needed to maintain the country atmosphere. The Association is seeking means to stop the removal of the hundreds of trees while only a fevware planted on Arbor Day.

Three hundred attended the reception given at the Sons of Italy Hall in Glen Cove. The couple planned a motor trip through Canada and will reside in their new home in South Huntington upon returning.

Breit- kreuz of Brennan. Germanv who has been visiting with all her family here for the last year. Present were her children, grandchildren and great grand- children to see her enplane for Germany on June 2nd. Needless to say the success of the show can be attributed not only to the boys who performed but to the production director, one Thomas Mcclernon, who ar- ranged the program, the music and cast the whole show and to Mr. M. Knappow, piano accom- panist. Mr. McClernon gave un- sparingly of his time in rehear- sals.

These youngsters, together with their very friendly leader and .instructor, Curtis Acker, visited the Steuben Hall later where cold drinks and hot dogs were supplied by the Post, “cheffed” by Karl Raguse. It was. a splendid parade and the turnout of onlookers was a wonderful sight indeed. The Post and is Auxiliary are very grate- ful to all who helped make this parade memorable. A loud- speaker would have aided those too far away to hear and it is hoped that next year one will be available. The close affiliation between the Greenlawn American Legion and the Tolman D. Wheeler Post is a spirit to observe. Tol- man D. Wheeler Post paraded with the Legion in Greenlawn at 8 am. and the Greenlawners reciprocated at 11 a.m. in East Northport. This is the kind of spirit which means unity in our beloved nation. John Leay, be- loved Spanish-American War Veteran has indeed, been a very busy man these days. He is a member of the National Ceme- tery Committee and was at Pinclawn National Cemetery early Sunday morning, May 30, (Memorial Day) and, assisted by his son, past Commander “Neil” Leay was busy with arrange- ments and passing out programs. Mr. Leay is the grand old. young; man of East Northport. He still parades with pride, as a true pa~ triot of his country.
