Shown trying on clothes made in class are left to right: Carol Matos , Caroline Baessler and Phyllis Castaldo. Features Baby Care: A layette bud get of $2 and year ' s budget of $31 for babies ' clothes seems impossible , say the girls enrolled in Homemaking Three at William Floyd School during the first few days of the course . However, within severa l days their instructor , Miss Sue Daye. head of the Home Economics Department , demonstrates that it is not only possible but highl y- practical. Homemaking Three has been made a part of the home econom- ies curriculum at William Floyd and includes a regents exam at the completion ,>f the cours e in June. Miss Daye says that it is a family centered course which in- cludes studying about the entire family cycle. The family cycle is made up of such things as dating, marriage , children, bab y care , the middle years and old age . The girls study the famil y cycle in respect to famil y finance , the expandable house , planning for col- lege, insurance, budgets and com- munity relations , to name . hist a few of the many aspects covered. This study is designed to familiar- ize thorn completely with the many problems facing young mavrv^ d couples during their ensuing years to trot her. 1 lie course devotes the majority of its time to the study of baby ca re. This portion of the course is designed not only to serve as an assistance to the girls in marriage but also to >ho\v them proper techniques to be emp loyed while bab y sitting prior to marriage. Miss Dayt- says that the aim of the course, in regards to baby sit- ting, is to reduce the possibility cY accidents and to improve the tech - niques of the girls in handling babies . >o that they are able to instill a sense of security in the babies while caring tor them in tlie absence of their mothers. Tlie g'rls learn the proper way to feed, change ami dress a baby. They not only learn these things but also study the best kinds of food, preparation of tiie food, best and most suitab le clothes , how to make the babies * clothes them- selves ami also what to do in em \ ¦ * •!• ire'lev situations. The girls use a life size doll and material supplied b y the Na- tional Baby Care Council , which is dedicated to the health and wel- fare of the nation ' s babies. They are supported mainly by baby manufacturers and work in con- junctio n with recognized authori- ties on babv care throughout the country. The girls are supplied with written material , diapers , material for making of clothes and films showing the proper methods employed in baby care. This material comes free of charge in the interest of furthering the education of the young people throughout the country, Miss Daye said. The 2f» girls enrolled in the course , at William Floy d, claim that they enjoy the course and that they feel that it will be of considerable value to them in later years. To prove the point that the initial clothes can be made for $2 the girls made their own clothes for the baby under the instruction of Miss Daye. The mothers in the local area have also voiced approval of the course since it not only prepare s the g irls to share in the work in their own homes but provides prospective customers for their baby sitting services with consid- erable more confidence in their capabilities to handle their iob. mp- * >i Gifts & Greetings for You — through WELCOME WAGON from Your Friendly Businett Neighbors and Civic tnd Social Welfare L«e*der» On the Occasion of: Arrival of Newcomers to the Community.

Mrs . Daniel Deaner and Charles Hedges spent more than 15 minutes trying various ways to lift the three dogs from the wate r before successfull y get- ting them out. The canal is located on Canal Street near the business section and was frozen over with ice with the exception of a small area near the cement bulkheading at the end of the canal . Mrs. Deaner reports that this small area is where the dogs were located and said that apparently they had fallen into the water in their eagernes s to get at several ducks that were swim- ming around in the area with no ice. To rescue them Mrs . Deaner held on to Mr. Hedges ' legs while he reached over the ledge and grab- bed the dogs bv the back of the neck. The first attempts proved un- successful because the dogs tried to resist , Mrs. Deaner said. How- ever , it soon became apparent that the dogs would not survive if left there and they renewed our efforts to rescue them , Mr. Hedges said.

Extension Meets With Verbal Fire A proposed extension ot* the iUastic ocacn Fire uisi-nct to in- ciuue a lOui-mae portion ol ureat ooum JJeac/i—two mnes west anu two mi.es east of \Smith s . r ' oint r' ark—was met witn verbal; m*e uy property owners in tne propos- ed laKu-over area wno oaim vney would get no tire protection but would nave to pay tire distric t taxes. ihe Brookhaven Town Board nearu the ueoate in a puoiic Hear- ing on the question neid during* its regular ' i uesaay meeting last week, me board reserved uecision on tne matte r until alter execu- tive session. Attorney John F. White , repre- senting tne hie district , requeste d tii e extension while Attorney John j . Hart , repi esen ting two property owners in the proposed inciusuon area, asked that the properties he represented not be included. .Mr. White argued that tne beach now has no tire protection in the proposed area. W nereas , he said , there aren 't many buildings in tiiat area—except ior tne county- owned buildings at Smith' s Point Park—the property still has po- tential growth. He maintained that the Mastic Beach firemen have answered calls on Great South Beach even though they weren 't obligated to do so. He said that by including the beach in the fire district , the fi r e- men would have insurance protec- tion when they answer a fire call , where they don 't now have it. Mr. Hart represented the Matt- habank Corp. and the Hospital Point Co., community owned pro- perty corporations which rent their land to bathing clubs. Their property is locate d on the outer limits of the proposed ex- tension area to the west of Smith' s Point Park . Mr. Hart argued that there aren 't many buildings on the pro- perties and that even if there were to be a fire , the fire trucks couldn 't get ove r Smith ' s Point Brid ge and through the sand in time to extinguish it. He maintained , therefore , that 'The property would be taxed for a protection it couldn 't possibly receive. \ He asked the board that the properties he represented not be included in the proposed ex- tension. Mr. White later said that the district would get $400 in taxes per year—at the fire district' s rate of 65 cents per $100 of assessed valuation—from the proposed area. The town board reserv ed deci- sion on the proposed ext e nsion of the fire district until after an ex- ecutive session. Stretch of Route 25A To Be Reconstructed Assemblyman Perry B.

Here ' s How You Can Help Heart Attack Victim How can you help someone who seems to be having a heart attack if you are the only other person on hand ? The first and most important thing to do in case of heart attack is to call a doctor at once , says the Suffolk County Heart Association. You should also help the patient take a position most comfortable for him (usually half way between lying and sitting), loosen tight clothing and see that he does not become chilled. Do not attempt to carry or lift him or give him any- thing to drink without the doctor ' s advice. In a leaflet entitled \Heart At- tack , \ the symptoms of heart at- tacks are listed and an explanation given of how atherosclerosis , the condition responsible for most heart attacks , develops. The leaflet also describes the chest pain known as angina pectoris. Most patients are able to con- tinue with their usual job once they have recovered from a heart attack. The Heart Association ad- vises them to: 1. Keep weight down. 2. Eat four small meals daily. 3. Get plenty of rest and take moderate exercise. 4. Avoid over-exertion and over- excitement. \Heart A ttack\ is one of four Heart Association publications be- ing featured during the 1961 Heart Fund campaign. It is offered free to the public in \Protect ' Your Family, \ a leaflet Heart volunteers will carry when they make calls during February, Heart Month.
