(Audit Bureau of CtrcnlaHona) PRICE THREE CENTS SLOATSBURG TO DECIDE ON SCHOOL SITE District Meeting Is CaUed for Nov. 29 to Discuss Available Plots in Community ‘ Uncle Dan ’ Aids Cause of Girl Scouts Upon the recommendation of John R. Schenck, Sloatuburg repre ­ sentative of the newly created cen ­ tral achool district in Ramapo, the present Sloatsburg school board last night unanimously approved call of a public meeting of all resi ­ dents of Sloatsburg on November 29 at tho Sloatsburg school to dis ­ cuss the matter of a site for the proposed new building. Mr. Schenck presented plot plana of three pieces of property which were studied by the board and stated that It was the desire of the new central board to learn the wishes of Sloatsburg residents. Mr. Schenck assured the local board that the central board wanted to cooperate with the residents of Sloatsburg. Three plots were reviewed by the trustees including the Daniel Whit ­ more plot on the west side of Route 17 and two plots on the east side of the highway, one owned by the Allen-Whritnour heirs and the other by the Tornby Land Corpora ­ tion. Proposed Sites Described The Whitmore site, which con ­ tains approximately 47 acres is in the heart of the village and the purchase price is quoted at $40,000. A gas service station is located on a corner of the plot, which la under lease for a five-year period with the privilege of a five-year renewal at $90 per month. Should the prop ­ erty be acquired, the board would J be expected to continue the lease j to the present tenants, It was pointed out. The Allen-Whritnour plot con ­ sisting of more than 15 acres and located near the present school site was quoted at $1,000 per acre, the district having the privilege of pur ­ chasing as many acres in the plot as desired. The property Is flat in contour throughout. The Tornby property, consisting of 10.5 acres, Is also priced at $1,000 an acre and 1* located near the New Hill Road. The contour of the property Is in great part hilly and would require much grading, It is indicated by the plot plan. Board Takes No Action Although the board took no ac ­ tion in favor of any particular plot since they expressed the desire • that the people themsolvts make the choice, members of the board personally commented on the three sites. Tracy Moffatt, president of the board, and his associates, Trustees Frank Gannon, William Schmarge, and A. W. Sovak, felt that the price placed on the Whit ­ more property would be considered prohibitive by the taxpayers and that the Tornby plot would entail large grading costs. The Allen- Whritnour prbperty was considered in a more favorable light because it involved practically no grading costs and the price was similar per acre to that quoted on the Tornby land. Mr. Moffatt and his associates, however, stated that their opinions were merely personal observations and not to be considered in any way reflecting an official view of the board. W. W. Winters was one of sev ­ eral taxpayers to attend the meet ­ ing and expressed the opinion that the Allen-Whritnour plot was the most desirable of the three offered, taking into account all factors in ­ volved. He stated that he did not believe that $1,000 per acre was an unreasonable price to pay. Growth Question The question of whether the new school should be located on the east or west side of Route 17 was discussed, Mr. Schenck pointing out that while the majority of pu ­ pils at present .resided on the west side, future growth of the commu ­ nity would take place In the east ­ ern part of the village. Considerable discussion attended ths cost to the new district of both a Sloatsburg and a new junior- senior high school, Winters stat ­ ing that in his opinion that the. bond limit of the district of $1,000,- 000 would be insufficient to pay for the construction and equipment for the proposed buildings. To prepare for future growth of the district, Winters said, a high school should be constructed with capacity of ap ­ proximately 1,600 pupils. Mr. Schenck said the central board had not yet done anything (Continued on t'Ofje I hue) “ Uncle Dan ” Beard, of Suffern, National Scout Commissioner of the Boy Scouts of America presenting a ceremonial Indian tepee to thc^fa- tlonal Committee of the Girl Scouts which \%in accepted by Mrs. Ralph C.

Orangetown Completes Its Roster of First Draftees Orangetown ’ s quota of six men to be inducted in a year's military training starting on Monday will be completed to ­ day ’ , Chairman Charles H. Davidson of the selective service board for the district stated. Three volunteers have already been accepted, another is having his physical examination to ­ day, and 18 men ’ in Class I are also undergoing their phy. sicals at the office of Dr. Stephen R. Montelth In Nyack. Donald Davidson of Pearl River, Order No. 709 t , was tha first to be accepted In Class la. Yesterday Alexander Cherecwich of Pearl River, Order No. 81v, and Lawrence Wanamaker of Nyack, Order No. 1138v, passed their physical exam ­ inations as volunteers and were ac ­ cepted in the same category. Peter Ohmels of Sparklll, -Order No. 192v, la the volunteer being ex ­ amined today. If he is accepted, the quota will probably be com ­ pleted with induction of Robert El- wood Andrews of Blauvelt, Order No. 2, and William George Kile Jr., of Sparklll, Order No. 6, or, if one of these men la placed In a de ­ ferred clasa, George Eugene Rlst of Orangeburg, Order No. 13, who has already been examined and put In Claas la. Present Rata Cited Chairman Davidson said that the local board has no. Idea of what its quota will be for the rest of the Initial year , of the five-year plan 1TD« present average proportion of men accepted to men on the order Hat la about ohe to eight or ten; In other words, 800 or 1,000 order numbers would be used up to get 100 acceptable men. The board has already heard pleas of men who complain that the draft call will upset their edu cational ambitions or their busi ­ nesses. One young man was not placed in the category of a etu dent because he is taking a aecre tarlal course, not a requisite num ­ ber of units In a recognized college course. He made no objection, how ­ ever, expresaing willingness serve. Another case is that of Rocco DePletro of Nyack, who pleaded for long-term deferment because he has just purchased a business which he Is operating as the Hud son Ice and Coal Company. Though he was earnest about his patriot ­ ism, he asked that he be exempt because his personally-managed business, which represents his en ­ tire life savings,' would he lost If he were called to aervlce. Chairman Davidson expressed his sympathy but ruled that there no provision In the law under which he could be exempt entirely. DePletro Waf placed In Class 2a, deferred nominally for six months, a deferment renewable at the end of the si* months. TOWN ADOPTS ’ 41 BUDGET OF $139,177 TOTAL No Taxpayers Appear to Express Views at An ­ nual Hearing on Esti ­ mate in Clarkstown The Clarkstown Town • Council yesterday ifternoon adopted a budget totkHing $139,177.02 for the coming fiscal year, but estimated revenues of $47,090.50 will bring the amount to be raised by taxa ­ tion down to $92,086.52. The budget was adopted after a public hear ­ ing at which no taxpayer appeared to discuss any of the appropria ­ tions made In the annual estimate. The budget Is approximately $10,000 higher than that of last year but an Increase in tho as ­ sessed valuation of the township amounting to about $70,000 Is ex ­ pected to compensurte for the rise and members of the council ex ­ pressed the hope that there will be little or no Increase In the tax rate. It was pointed out that, while there have been Increases In ap ­ propriations for some of the de ­ partments, no raises In salary have been granted. For . example, an additional $1,858 In the poljce fund yvas made because It was found necessary to appoint ah extra pa ­ trolman due to conditions at Rock ­ land Lake last Summer and the increasing growth of population and traffic in the township. Taxpayers Missing After members of the council had awaited vainly for an hour for the appearance of taxpayers, the budget hearing was declared closed and the board proceeded to Its regular meeting. They couldn ’ t have been inter- Manion Sentenced to Two Years in Jail, Fined $2,500 For Part in Still Conspiracy Control of Balkans Seen in Axis Drive One Conference Follows Artother as Diplomatic War Is Fought The Axis today was seeking to win on the diplomatic front victories that were not being won on the battlefront.

Gil- chrest as he cast hie vote in favor of the adoption of the budget. Dr. GUchreat and Councilman B. Otto Jacobien pointed out thai, contrary to the opinion held by some citizens of the township, the annual estimate Is not prepared by the supervisor and the council- men. On the contrary, the estl- the heads told the council that, In view of the fact that he could not deter ­ mine at present what the town ’ s share of county charges will be, It was Impossible for him to give the amount of the new tax rate. He effect selective service will have members of the faculty after It had been pointed out that two of the members are well up on the list for early call. It was stated that not only the Congers board but boards throughout tha state may be affected through loss of faculty members by the conscrip ­ tion. The members of the Conge faculty Whose ‘ draft status discussed by the board are Albert Brown, industrial arts teacher, and Charles Trowbridge, athletic director. Belief was expressed that, since Mr. Trowbridge is married and has children, he will be placed In a deferred classifica ­ tion. Mr. Brown, however, is unmar ­ ried and has no dependents and aW .old the .upervteore probably will u llat , d for rlrly cal |, The board fix the town charges at a meeting today. Dr. Arthur C. Goebel offered a plan for establishing specifications for highways which are to be taken over as town roads. He said it was not fair to have taxpayers spend money to build roads ac ­ cording to haphazard specifications and then have the council refuse to accept them. Under Dr. Goebel ’ s plan, the specifications would provide for a right-of-way not leas than 50 feet wide and a roadway not less than 26 feet wide. No deadend streets would be considered. There would be no sharp curves or steep grades in the highways and It would be necessary that there ,be a house at least every 150 feet. A stone base at least five Inches deep would be required. Deeds for the entire right-of-way .must be pre ­ sented the town council and provision would be made for the construction of roads In sections. Under the plan, the council could not reject any roads if they are constructed according to specifica ­ tions. Limit for Town Councilman Jacobsen said that the council could not take over all the roads In the township. The superintendent of highways already has many miles of road under his charge and additional cost would be Incurred In plowing and main ­ taining new roads, he said. Councilman Goebel said he be ­ lieved his plan would cover all con 3 dltions and Superintendent of High ­ ways Emil Klein expressed the oplnlbn that it would be a good Investment for the town. .. Mr. Jacobsen said that ha be ­ lieved the matter required further study and at his suggestion Super ­ intendent Klein and Councllmen Goebel and Charles Eberling were appointed a committee to investi ­ gate the matter and report back to the board. Several petitions of residents of various sections of the town ask ­ ing that the town take over roads now privately owned were received and were referred to Mr. Klein for Investigation. After a discussion during which it was pointed out that the assign ­ ment of police protection at the office of the receivier of taxes is a drain on the manpower of the police force, Chief Walter N. Lleb- ert was suthorLed to arrange for a signal system between the col ­ lector's office and the police booth. Health Board Meeting At a board of health meeting which followed the regular session, Dr. Marjorie Hopper, health officer, said she attended s meeting of the county health officers recently and that the milk situation was discussed. She said it was agreed that permits for dealers who v are not living up to regulations will be withheld after the first of y the year. In reply to questions by mem ­ bers of the council, she said, that thers were several such Instances in Clarkstown, particularly among ths smaller dsslera # discussed at length whether. In a sense, the work he la doing In the training of youth la not actually a national defense Job. On the other hand, it was pointed out that he may be the type of man the government desires for other defense work The. .matter seemed settled this morning when Felix V. Fcsta, supervising principal of the school, communicated with Local Board 763 In Haverstraw and was In ­ formed that the board has no special ruling for teachers and that they are to be considered along the same lines as any other registrant. More Space Asked Trustee John G. Kern, chair ­ man of the building committee, recommended that the quarter* of the industrial arts department be enlarged. It was pointed out that no provision for the work has been made In this yenr ’ avB\(dget and the matter was put over Uptll next year ’ s budget has been made up. Permission for tho use of the auditorium was granted to four local athletic organlzanmis but, be ­ cause of the fact that neavy de mands have been made for the use of the room, the organizations are to \double up\ and two them are to use it on the same night. The. board discussed at length report of the State Department of Education on the health and physical education departments of the school. The report analyzes the work done In these depart ­ ments Item, by item and in most cases the work done at Conger* was commended. In other cases, recommendations were made. Par ­ ticular commendation was given to the classes for the correction of postural defects. The board audited bills amount ­ ing t4 $4,810.00 and authorized the payment of a short term loan of $5,500. The treasurer announced the receipt of the first tax moneys from the receiver of taxes In the amount of about $5,500 and the receipt of state aid for non-resi ­ dent tuition In the amount of $7,- thia time with the Hungarian Premier Count Paul Telekl and the Hungarian Foreign Minister, Count Stephen Csaky. Slovakian states ­ men also were expected to confer with the Axis Foreign Ministers In Vienna. New Visits Due Rumanian Premier Ion Anto- nescu * was expected In Berlin soon. Reports were also current that French Vice Premier Pierre Laval might visit Berlin. Behind these Intensive diplo ­ matic maneuvers was seen an axis move to line up a united front of the totalitarian powers against Democratic forces before a Winter offensive against the! British Empire Is launched. Budapest reports said Soviet Premier V. M. Molotov had prom ­ ised Hitler \exclusive control ” of the Balkans. The dispatches did not state what Hitler had offered Molotov In return. Nazis Plan Path As a result of Hitler ’ s talk with King Boris of Bulgaria, German quarters were reported to be con-' fldsnt G e r ip a n y could move through Bulgaria to help Italy crush Greece whenever such a move was conaidered advisable. Meanwhile, fierce fighting con ­ tinued along the Greco-Albaninn front, with Athens claiming the Itallana were still being driven back. The world's newest war be ­ tween Thailand and French Indo- China also continued unabated. A spokesman for the Chinese govern ­ ment predicted a Japanese attack on the vitally Important French Indo-Chinese seaport of Saigon within 45 days. Athens Claims Gains Athens reported that Greek Loops registered new gains along the entire war front after beating back heavy Italian counter-offens ­ ives and at the same time closed In more tightly around Korltza, the Italian military base In Al ­ bania. A Reuters (British) dis ­ patch from Belgrade, baaed on dispatches from the Yugoslavian border, claimed that Korltza al ­ ready had fallen to the Greeks and that Hellenic troops entered the city at 1 a. m., capturing enor ­ mous amounts of war ma'erlals. At Rome It was announced that an enemy attack to capture Gai ­ dar© In the Dodecanese Islands hzd be^n frustrated. During the night, while Nazi planes pounded Liverpool, RAF bombers attacked oil targets In Central Germany, according to a London announcement. The at ­ tacks on Liverpool caused some casualties, a number of them fatal, and damaged a church, a college and various residential areas, according to reports from London. Open Press Campaign At Sofia the controlled Bulgar ­ ian press opened a significant campaign against Greece following the return of King Boris from a visit with Chancellor Hitler. Sec ­ recy surrounded the exact pur ­ pose of this visit and in Berliq it was announced merely that Boris called on the Fuehrer during a \private stay\ in the Reich. From Budapest came reports that Boris may shortly lead his nation into the European war. Federal court, New York City, on charges of conspir ­ acy, ended last week, were sentenced by Judge Robert H. Inch yesterday. Three of those sentenced were Rockland County men. One of them, Frank,Manion of Haverstraw, former dep ­ uty sheriff under former Sheriff John E. Cook, wa» sentenced to the maximum jail term called for under the statute, two years in prison. He was also sentenced to pay a fine of $2,500 which must be paid before hr can gain hla release from a Federal prison. Immediately after his sentence, at tho request of his counsel, Hen ­ ry V. Stebbins, and with tire con ­ sent of Federal District Attorney Richard J.

While Judge Inch, in sentencing the former, deputy, did not specify any particular place for him to be jailed* leaving this , to 200 . CIVIL RIGHTS ARE HIT, CIO CONVENTION TOLD ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Nov. 19 (INS) — An officers ’ report charg ­ ing Congress with \an almost con ­ tinuous debauch' or attacks on civil rights,\ was laid before the third annual CIO convention to ­ day. Carrying unanimous approval of the 17 union members of the of-' fleers' report committee, the docu-, ment declared Congress has re ­ treated — not moved forward — In the field of social legislation.

Two on Probation The other two Rockland County defendants, Leo Huott of Gamer- vllle and Charles Linguantl of Mount Ivy, assertedly Workmen at .various stills which the govern ­ ment charged were operated in thla county in 1935 and 1038, were not given any jail sentences, but In ­ stead were placed on probation for two years by Judge Inch. The two youths, with the four other lesser defendants also sentenced yester ­ day, entered pleas of guilty befora the end of the trial. Edward W. Garrison of Monroe, Orange County coroner, another .of the principal^ named In the gov ­ ernment's indictment, who was al ­ so found guilty by a jury, drew the same sentence as was given Manion. They were the only' two found guilty among the five principals on trial, former Sheriff Cook having been acquitted while the jury failed to reach an agreement on the guilt or Innocence of either Everett Knapp, former Rockland County game warden, or of Harold J. Quinn, former state police ser ­ geant. The disagreement was re ­ ported approximately 24 hours af ­ ter the jury took the case last Wednesday afternoon. Other Sentence* Other lesser defendants (all of whom were represented by Georgs Sommer of Newark) sentenced and the sentences given them were: Alfred Sgambatti, Union City, on# year and one day; Max Ganeo, Park Ridge, six months; Paul G«- loso, West Norwood, six months, suspended, two years probation; and Andrew Verdlgi, West Nor ­ wood. six months, suspended, two years probation. Both Ganeo and Sgambatti who, like Manion and Garrison, re ­ ceived jail terms, were also given two weeks to arrange, their person ­ al affairs before surrendering to the custody of Federal marshals, I n all cases where such time was given the court indicated that ths respective bull of each man was to continue until the end of that two- week period. Manion was the second to be sentenced in a procedure that was remarkable for its speed and ab ­ sence of undue legal fanfare. It took somewhat less than an hour to hear pleas of the various coun ­ sel, to entertain motions, and to pass sentence on the eight defend ­ ants. Of one of the defendants, Verdlgi, Judge Inch even asked a question about which he would pra- fer, a short jail term or a longer term on probation. He requested the longer probationary term. Stebblna Makes Flea Henry V. Stebbins, as counsel for Manion first moved to set aslds hls client ’ s conviction* on the grounds that it was contrary to the facts, against the weight of evidence, and argued that there has been no proof beyond a reasonable doubt that Manion was connected with the conspiracy. He also argued that the verdict ^ was Inconsistent with the evldenco in the case, calling Judge Inch ’ s mb tention to the fact thet. a larger part of the evidenc* adduced {Continued on Pago
