# I A We weren’t paylng much attention when the postal service Issyed advisories about early maljing to assure Chrlst'mas delivery of packages and letters. About the time tire parcels should have been In the mail for those people in distant places, we were still compiling shopping lists. We got the idea that the postal people were serious about their early mailing warnings this . week*. On Tuesday we received a small package in the mail which had been posted In New York on November 17. We can’t imagine what any agency, even the postal service,-could do with a parcel to keep It en route between New York and Greenwich for 20 days — but they did it. I Hf We can understand the.postal service will bog f down at times such as Christmas, when the volume.of mall ts hejavy. We would think, however, that a November 17 mailing was made well before the Christmas rush began, and that If should have averaged better than 10 miles a day ona20G-mlletrip, ; ' Well; if airjicMMovember mailing from New York to Greenwich takes 20 days, our Christmas packages are miswrapped and the cards accompanying them will not be timely when, and if, the parcels arrive. We should have wished our# friends a cloudy Candlemas day, rather tharfa merry Christmas. We should have been more attentive to the postal service’s advice about early mailing. Better yet, we should have posted our packages soon after Labor day.

From The People’s Journal, Greenwich 100 YEARS AGO December 7, 1876 Valley Falls — A few items from this place may not be devoid of interest to some of the readers of The Journal. The matrimonial fever is contagious and with indications of fatal results, and unless some skillful hand is employed to stay its ravages, Valley Falls will be looked upon as a fruitful field for the preachers and esqrs. Two cases occurred last week in which four individuals were personally inter­ ested, all of which have passed off into another state. From The Salem Press FIFTY YEARS AGO December 9, 1926 When Livingston Coul­ ter, clerk in the Carrolan and Darmody drug store in Salem, opened for business the, previous Friday morning he dis­ covered that the store had been broken into during the night and a quantity of liquor, mostly whiskey, had been removed. Even more mystifying than an ordinary burglary, be found on the floor in the back room of the store six twenty-dollar bills. The bills were scattered around and two of them were tom in two. From The Greenwich Journal THIRTY YEARS AGO December 11,’ 1946 A meeting of 1,200 men and women school teach­ ers of Washington, War­ ren and Saratoga counties had been called by the Tri-County Schoolmas­ ters’ association as a further step to get salary increases. The meeting was to be held on December 17 in Hudson Falls high school when a committee of the associa­ tion would present a plan of action for the consider­ ation of the teachers of this section. In preparation for pre­ senting to the taxpayers of the village the proposal to install a sewer and dis­ posal system for the village of Greenwich, the trustees of the village were planning a special meeting to study the blueprints of the plan and consult with the engineer, Morrell and Vrooman. The board hoped to present the proposal to the voters in the spring. Deaths: Frank B. Lewis, 66, Greenwich; Mrs. Minnie A. Boyd, Argyle. From The Greenwich Journal TWENTY YEARS AGO December 12, 1958 There was to be a vote on the question of bonding the village of Greenwich for not moye than §115,000 to purchase the Greenwich Union Water Works company. At a meeting of the village board, * James E. Ryan preseated a petition ask­ ing for such a vote signed by 259 people. This was more than wice as many signers than were needed, and meant that a special election would probably be held to decide on the purchase. Greenwich lost its first Washington county league basketball game the previous Friday to Argyle 68 to 30. The Greenwich scoring was led by John SkelUe'^d Jim linnett with eight points each, Other players who-, scored \were: John Priest with six points, Bill Morse with three, \Mac \Warner and Dave Lund­ berg with two and Jim McGowan with one. Argyle was led in scoring by Roger Langworthy with 16 points. Deaths: Horace J. Rob­ ertson, 59, White Creek; Raymond Bardin Sr., East Hartford. From The Joumal-Press JUST A YEAR AGO December 11, 1975 An attempt at modern- day flight fouled Santa in the tree tops of Cam­ bridge the previous Sat­ urday afternoon. The jolly old elf planned to arrive at the Cambridge bazaar there by plane, but his landing was a little rough. When the plane came in for a landing, it struck tree branches about 50 to 75 feet in the air. It spun around, crashing to the ground. Miraculously, neither Santa, George Bell Sr. of Cambridge, nor the pilot-, Richard Record, a Cambridge businessman, were hurt. We are interested to read in the Christian Science Monitor that the outcome of the presi­ dential election last month is not yet assured. A news story in that paper says President Ford and Jimmy Carter are still in a close race in the electoral college. Which of them'1 actually will be our next president will probably be decided next week Mon­ day, December 13, when the college members cast their votes. We’ve all been re­ ferring to Mr. Carter as the president-elect for more than a month now, but there’s still a chance Mr. Ford will be re­ elected. As the electoral count is quoted now, Mr. Carter has 297 and Presi­ dent Ford's total is 241. Those figures make Mr. Carter the winner — but there’s a recount of the popular vote in Ohio. First figures gave that state to the Democratic candidate by a majority of only 9,333 votes, and the Republicans called for another count. Should the recount show Mr. Ford carried Ohio, that state’s 25 electoral votes would be deducted from Mr. Carter's present 297, to make his total 272, and Mr. Ford’s total would be 266. Mr. Carter would have only two votes more than the majority required for election. He would still appear to be the winner —j but strang% things have happened with electors’ votes in the past, and might again. The Democratic victory would vanish if three or more of the electors named by the Democrats idtched their votes to Mr 7j Ford — and such ptches have happened. Jince the election of George Washington in 1789, six electors have switched their votes, and 14 others were net pledged to any candidate. So, if it is determined that Ohio went Republican, the meeting of the electoral college' could be very interesting. The situation would be even more dramatic if Mr. Carter lost Ohio and two electors switched from him to President Ford. That eventuality would leave both candidates tied at 270, and the house of representatives would de­ cide which man would become president. Figures now available indicate the election was one of the closest in the nation’8 history in terms of popular vote. More than 78 million people cast ballots, and Mr. Carter’s lead was a margin of about 1,744.000 votes. P o l i c e a r r e s t m e n f o r t h e f t , b r e a k - i n s The theft of a citizens band radio from a Green­ wich store, a number of break-ins, a hit and run accident and possession of illegal weapons are among the incidents recently investigated by the state police at the Salem head­ quarters. Ronald L. Keeler, 42, of Valley Falls, was arrested November 15 by Trooper J. Dean, after the theft of a C.B. radio from the Big N store, Greenwich. The man entered a guilty plea before Town Justice Keith Mann. He was fined $100. Three young Salem men were charged November 8 following a lengthy in­ vestigation into a break-in at Tomasi’s store on Main street, Salem, on Sep­ tember 2. Sajam’s Chief Peter Hartney and Troop­ er M. Wescott arrested the three, charging them with burglary, third de­ gree. They were assisted in the investigation by Sergeant Donald Pushee and Trooper D.G. Mc­ Phail. The names of the young men are being withheld, due to their possible youthful offender. status. Arraigned before Village Justice Francis Blanck, they were com­ mitted to the Washington county jail, Salem.

The DeFoe and Peregrim Families bridge, was charged with criminal mischief, fourth degree, after an incident at the Look ’N’- -Good cocktail lounge on route 22 in which two windows were broken. He pled guilty before Town Justice Ackley, receiving a one- year conditional dis­ charge. He was also ordered to make restitu­ tion. Troopers Hebert and Winslow investigated. A lengthy investigation of burglaries in the towns of Hebron and Hartford has been closed with the arrests of three 17-year- olds from West Hebron and Salem. Because of their age, the subjects may not be named. One of the youths has also been charged with another burglary which occurred last .week in the village of Salem. All three were arraigned before Village Justice Blanck, who or­ dered them held at the Salem jail in lieu of bail ranging to $3,500. Trooper M.D. Wescott arrested the three. He was assisted in the investiga­ tion by Investigator Thomas Judkins of the South Glens Falls bureau of criminal investigatien and Troopers R.J. Hebert and J.S. Dean of the Salem barracks. Several television sets and other items were recovered. An Easton resident reported to Trooper Mc­ Phail On November 22 that a hit and run accident at about 9:30 p.m. had resulted in damage to his vehicle, lawn and shrub­ bery. An investigation by Troopers Wescott and McPhail resulted in the arrests of George Barton, 24, and John Parry, 24. both of Stillwater, fo? criminal mischief, fourth degree, and trespass. In addition. Mr. Parry is charged with driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of an accident and failure to keep right. Both subjects were ar­ raigned before Easton Town Justice Briggs and committed to countyjail in lieu of bail, pending a reappearance in court tomorrow. Richard L. Crosier, 20, of RD 2, Salem, will reappear before Salem Justice Warren Bandel today to answer to a charge of criminal pos­ session of a weapon in the fourth degree. Mr. Crosier was arrested by Trooper McPhail who found a billy club in his vehicle after stopping him on route 22. The young man was released in his own recognizance to await the hearing. On November 14 a Starnford, Conn., man was charged with illegal possession of a firearm, described as a .357 Magnum. Trooper Wes­ cott arrested Albert Rich, 38, who was permitted by the district attorney to plead to a reduced charge of fourth degree posses­ sion, a misdemeanor. Jackson Justice Ackley fined the man $25.
