Y., T H U R ® S Y , NOVEMBER 2, 1939 5 Cents Svpervisors Ask Board Of Health To Drop Past|uri^ Rule lice of PostpoflKiat Not Satisfactory resolution asking that the County t^ A of Health permanently drop Its proposal for requiring milk to be pas- teurized In Suffolk County was unan- imously passed by the Board, ol Super- visors at their meeting at Rlverhead on Monday. The motion was offered by Supervisor JoTin N. Brennan of Smith- town and voted upon after intense dis- cussion. The question came up after Benja- min D. Blackman read a letter from Dr. William H. Ross, president of the Board of Health, which said that the Board had decided to \postpone the pasteurization ondinanoe until July 1, 1940, and also exempt certified milk In order to provide raw milk of rela- tively high degree for those who desire it.\ Chairman Warren F. Oreenhalgh ex- pressed the opinion that the Board of Health would likely meet the demand for dropping the ordinance after the six-month delay if pubUc sentiment demanded such action. Other members of the Board, however, felt that the order should be rescinded at once. Supervisor Frederic J. Wood of Baby- lon said his town was not aatlsfled with the set-up and offered a rewdutkm that the County Board of Health be dis- olved. There was no second to the mo- tion. Arthur T. Davjs, county health com- missioner, explained that the resolution of the County Board of Health set aside the milk problem for six months and that milk could be sold as usual dur- ing that period. He sai4 he believed that the time would be further ex- tended for enforcement of the law if the public demanded it. At this point Supervisor Brennan offered a motion, seconded by Supervi- sor Edgar A. Sharp of Broc^aven stating that \the sentiment of the pres- ent Board of Supervisors is that pas- teurlBation of milk in Suffolk County be disregarded in Its entirety by the County Board of Health.\ The mo- tion passed by 10 to 0 vote. Judge Hill Addreatet Legionnaires At Southampton County Judge U Barron Hill was the principal speaker at the Joint in- stallation of officers of six American Legion Posts held at Southampton on Saturday night. Himself a Legion- naire, Judge Hill addressed the large audience of the insidious activities of such un-American organizations as the Oerman-Amerlcan Bund and the Com- munist group, sworn enemies of the American Legion. He spoke greatly in favor of a more stringent policy by the authorities In Washington, to the end that deportation be the punishment of every agitator seeking to destroy the Amerlcah government and AmolCan social and economic customs. Other members of the Orlswold- Terry-Olover Post who were present at the Southampton meeting were George J. Swezey Charles W. Turner, John Hubln, Walter McAslan and Harold Lance. \Dizzy Baton\ To-Morrow Night at Southold High School The \Dizzy Baton,\ an amusing and entertaining comic operetta, will be the main feature of a musical program to be presented by the students of South- old High School under the direction of Harold Niver in the High School Auditorium on Friday evening of this week at 8 o'clock.

Introduced as possibly the first gov- ernor to honor Suffolk County with a personal appearance. Governor George D. Aiken of Vermont, speaking before a large assemblage at the Suffolk Coun- ty Republican Club at Great River, last Saturday afternoon charged the na- tional administration in Wadilngton with hiding its failures behind a smoke screen created by the war in Europe. He saw the war as \blacking out the failures\ and using It as an excuse to redouble efforts aimed at acquiring control over the country's entire re- sources. It was the governor's first visit ta Suffolk County. The rally had, been ar- ranged by the organization wl)lch ten- dered the Governor a luncheon-recep- tlon at which a great many county and town officials were present. Surrogate Richard W. Hawkins and County Clerk Frank Markvart gave the Introductory remarks, the latter Introducing W. Kingsland Macy who presided at the rally and presented Governor Aiken. The Governor was accompanied by T. C. Dale, his State Commissioner of Public Welfare. Excerpts from his ad- dress follow: Partisanship Often Blind \In spite of the requests from Wash- ington that the citizens of the United States ^ p partisanship during the present period which has been some- what vaguely defined as a limited na- tional emergency, I don't have any feeling of being disloyal to my country in speaking to a partisan political group today. \Partisanship is often blind, imrea- soning or fanatical and conceals ulteri- or motives. In this respect it ought to be drop^d not only during periods of emergency, limited or otherwise, but for all time as much as It lies within the power of ordinary mortals to do so. But if dropping partisanship means that we should not question the motives of our government an4 should align ourselves solidly behind those who diu*- ing the recent years have been any- thing but non-partisan in word and deed, who have failed in almost every way to bring to the people of theUnlted States that progress most earnestly de- sired and that improvement in welfare for which we all yearn, then I say that now of all times men and women of our country must be partisan and, guard the right to freely express themselves as they have never done before. \I don't know what Washington would do without this war. The ad- ministration down there has in recent months been thwarted at almost every turn In Its attempts to subserve the Ju- dicial and legislative branches of gov- ernment and to appropriate the re- sources belonging to the people and the states. It seemed headed to cer- tain defeat. Merciful Smoke Screen \Then along came the war in Europe, mercifully spreading a smoke screen over the failures and unsolved prob- lems of recent years. Washington adds fuel to the smoke pots. Daily scare heads emanate from the Wihite House. \Mention the all time high national debt — and submarines are sighted off Cape Cod. Call attention to the ten million unemployed of the nation — and the Germans threaten to annex Canada. Speak a word about the fail- ure to restore parity prices for farm products — and western civilization Is threatened with extinction. Notice the fact that federal commissions hall American business Into court and act as judge, jury and prosecutor — and the size of our army must be doubled at once. \Yes I think this war IS a Ood-itiid to that pMttaal group ivho now con- trol the government ct the United States. There Is no «lMMton iMt what fliis con- MMkout of its upm us Regular Supper at Methodist Church November 9th The Ladies' Aid Society of the Meth- odist Church will serve a supper in the Church parlors on Thursday, Novem- ber 9th at 6 p. m. Mrs. Teunls Bergen Is chairman of the committee In charge of arrangements. The menu will be as follows: Roast fresh ham and gravy, mashed potatoes, apple sauce baked beans, home made bread, pickles, gin- ger bread and whip cream. Vote Early the tsttanoes ol trol are cnbanoed of Its falinres and the aims by the situation today. \We have kiiaira-4* a ,k>ng time that that group In and • t a u t Hie White House who wouM cratMliae oontnd over all resources — asricultaral — in- dustrial — natural and hunwui—could always fall back upon the threat of war if all other means fafled to attain their ends. I grant that they would prefer to attain this control wlthfut involving us in a foreign war. Regiment M w t r y \But if war comes, fedeml plaqs have been formulated for the cono^eM rsg- imentation of American Induttry. I am frank to s»y I ddbt believe these plans have beei^ diMaTdetV If they had been, the book •fibld be cir- culating freely Instead of vysteriously disappearing. I don't belle* that hu- man nature i n WaiMi^n has changed in the last six mbpUu. And no one in this country seriously believes that the power thus delegated to our present federal government in time of war, would ever be wholly or wUlingly returned to the people at the end of the war. \At the present time we have only two major parties in America, the Democratic and the RepubUcan. The Democratic Party is controlled by a small group whose itch for political power leaves them unresponsive to the loyal voters of a nation and of their own party as well. The RepubUcan Party machinery Is still largely in con- trol of those whose itch for financial power has thrown the voters, in des- peration into the hands of the New Deal. Two-thirds of the people of America today are men and women without a party to wtoik they can give their whole hearted aita^MM ^Dd iinp- port. Retain DenMCratIc Principles \Government is merely a political party in power. The people of the United States are paying for a p«^ti- cal party that will truly represent them and their desires, so that through this party they may attain a government which will retain the basic principles of our democracy and apply them to pres- ent day needs. \They don't want to discard the So- cial Security Laws, the Labor Relations Law, the Wage-Hour Law, but they want these laws to be made to work properly and fairly. Some party has the opportunity to represent this majority of the people. I hope It wUl be the Re- publican. \Without the support of labor and acricultnre, however, the Republican Party cannot win. To secure and hold the support of agriculture and labor. It must make these groups feel that It Is their political home and not simply a rich man's mansion to which they may flee occasionally in times of storm. Sincere Appeal \I feel that the time Is here when our party can make this appeal, but It must be made In a sincere manner. We must not appeal to labor and agricul- tural groups and Invite them Into our party for the simple purpose of using them and their votes. A group repre- senting farm and labor Is as much en- titled to a voice and vote In determin- ing the policies of the party as In any (Continued on Page 8) The 165 Polling Places in Suffolk County will be open from 6 A.M. to P.M.. Tuesday, November 7th, 1939. A qualified citlwn and voter is entitled to cast his vote any time between the hours mentioned. However, in view of the addltlmial regulrement this year namely, the necessity of each voter either signing the rei^ster or executing an Identification statement before he will be permitted to cast his ballot, the Board of Elections urges the citlBens of Suffolk County to vote as early as possible. If the voters will co-op^te in this matter the Board will be grate- fuTto them, as it will facilitate the work of the local Boards of Inspectors and minimize the danger of error and confusion at the close of the Polls. R. Ford Hughes R. H. Hairston Commissioners, Suffolk County Board of Elections To Inaugurate Community Night at Southold High School Monday Monday night, November 6th will be Community Night at the Southold High School gymnasium.

Henry Williams of the High School faculty will have charge and Is working out a program which will be of Interest to everyone partic- ipating. Principal L. A. Blodgett and the members of the Boaixl of Education have given their whole hearted approv- al of the idea and if it Is supported by the townspeople it will become a reg- ular Monday night event at the High School. Games will start at 7:30 sharp and in order to get the activities underway in an orderly fashion, Mr. Williams re- quests that everyone be punctual. No regular games will be played for the first two weeks but teams will be form- ed and the squads will get in some needed practice. SOCIAL CALENDAR | Friday, November 3rd, at 8:00 P. M.

Hospital The^araiual drive for funds for the Southold-Piecbiiic Auxiliary of the ^Mtern Long Island Hospital has Just been completed, and the results are really splendid. Owing to the collec- tion for the building fund last year, when everyone responded so generous- ly, no appeal by the local auxiliary was made, so it was much needed this year . And as always the people were ready and $518.00 was collected, which speaks well ind,eed for the genuine In- terest of our community in the hospi- tal. Those who saw the new wing, at the time of the public inspection in early September, know that it is a wonder- ful addition to the hospital. It supplies much needed private and semi-private rooms, is pleasant, modem and con- venient. In early summer representa- tives of the various auxiliaries were asked to Inspect It before Its comjde- tlon and select their new rooms. South- old-Pe<!onlc Auxiliary has for many ye^rs supported the largest room in the old building outside the wards — a three-bed room sometimes in emer- gency use^ for four beds. It seemed a pity to go backward, and do less, so the committee unanimously voted to take over two adjoining two-bed rooms in the new wing. They are among the choicest, one on the southwest comer ai ^ the adjoining room on the south, both with a fine view of the bay and inlet, plenty of sunlight, large windows and a lavatory between. These rooms have complete n«w furniture, as the old was bought by the hospital and retained in the old room, where it £ts. The furnishings were complete except- ing for two over-bed tables, adjustable for trays, reading, or any such use. During this drive, Mrs. Robert M. Searle of Paradise Point, very graci- ously gave as her donation, these two tables, at a cost of fifty-eight dollars. The upkeep of the rooms is not great, once they are furnished. There are ixjcasional bills for linen, painting of the walls, and such items, which are covered by about fifty'dollars a year. Besides this, each community has a quota, varying according to the size of the community, which Is called for any year when the hospital needs It toward Its running expenses and up- keep. Our quota Is five hundred dol- lars. In recent years, when times have been hard and peoples needs greater, there have been more calls. No hospital Is self-supporting, an^ In cities and towns everywhere the public are asked to help In the good and very necessary work. Equipment has to be modem to be efficient and there is a great deal of equipment in any well run hospital. Once more the committee of women who canvassed our two villages for the funds, expressed their pleasure and gratification at the ready and gener- ous response with which they met. And the community must feel pleased with the results of the drive. If anyone was away from home, or for any reas- on missed and wishes to ad|d to the fund, the money may be sent to Mrs. Louis N. Sanford, Southold, the treas- urer. We have but one drive a year for these funds. Loralne B. Cosden (Mrs. Alfred H. Cosden) » Commander Brennan Installs Officers of Southold Town Legion Posts The Joint Installation of the three Legion Posts of Mattituck, Southold and Greenport was held last Friday evening in the parish house of Trinity Episcopal Church in Greenport, the occasion being a meeting to which the public had been Invited.

Tickets are now on sale at various places about Southold Town for the first in the series of programs which Custer Institute is to offer during the current season for the education and interest of the people of our Town. With the hope of making theee pro- grams a reol contribution, the Institute is securing speakers of standing in their profession to visit Southold dur- ing the season; and the first of these programs will be the lecture toy Major Anthony Flala, F. R. G. S., on Friday, November 10th. Major Flala, whose accomplishments in polar exploration have won him worid-wlde fame, as well as fellowship in the Royal Geographical Society, has achieved for himself as brilliant a ca- reer on the lecture platform as he won in actual exploration. He accompanied the first Zlegler ex- pedition as scientific assistant and pho- tographer; and so outstanding was his work on that expedition that Mr. Zleg- ler placed him in command of the sec- ond expedition. Major Flala's subject here will be: \The Conquest of the North Pole.\ It recounts the long and involved prepar- ations that such expeditions require; the landing of men and supplies at their base; and the incredibly difficult progress of men and dogs toward their goal. As to Major Flala's abUlty to pre- sent these gripping adventures to his audience, a wealth of press notices from every portion of the country con- cerning his appearances beais eloquent testimony. Dr. s. Parkes Cadman said of him: \He has an unrivalled experi- ence in the Arctic regions, and a vital message for. the American people. I take pleasure in commending him to all. He is imdoubtedly one of the larg- est attracti<Mis among the present gen- eration of lecturers.\ Major Flala's ex- periences ' Include, besides his Ptrfar work, the famous expedition to the \River of Doubt\ with the late Theo- dore Roosevelt. The lecture will be generously illus- trated with the finest selection of Arc- tic and Polar pictures, many in vivid color, that have ever been thrown up- on the American screen. Place this attraction on your \must\ list and seciu-e your tickets early. Tic- kets may be secured from members of Custer Institute, from pupils In the several schools of the Town, and at the following places; Barker's Drug Store, Mattituck; Kollmer's Drug Store, Cut- chogue; Kramer's Drug.
