Serving New Castle 31 Years—No. 39 CHAPPAQUA, N. Y., THURSDAY, JANUARY 15,1959 PRICE FIVE CENTS The 'Slow Learner' Discussed by Board Short disc •» '.ont> on three sub­ jects were the principal items on the agenda of Monday night's brief Board of Education r-~?ting at the Robert E. Bell School. Each evolv­ ed from memoranda given to the Board by District Principal Doug- la. G. Grafflin. A report on so-called \slow learn­ ers\ in the Chappaqua school sys­ tem showed that 102 pupils, or four-and-a-half per cent of the total enrollment, fall in that cat­ egory with IQ's from 76 to 95. These children have difficulty in graduating from a characteristic American high school, and yet they canrrt leave school, even wi*' their parents' approval, until they are 16- They face problems wl.eth.er they are taught competi­ tively with other children, or are handled separately. In Chappaqua, the report stated, the schools are handicapped in dealing with slow learners be­ cause of their dispersal through 13 age groups from kindergarten through the twelfth trade with not er~ugh at any grade level to make for a reasonably economic size of class group. Remedial work will not help slow learners, the repurt emphasized, because the term remedial implies that a child is working oelow his ability level; \slow learners\ can­ not by any presently known meth­ ods have their ability levels rais­ ed to where remedial work has any significance. Mr. Grafflin's report welcomed suggestion for devising a satisfac­ tory program for such pupils. Football Bleachers A second memorandum concern­ ed bleacher seating at the new fooball field at Horace Greeley High School. At present, the only seating arrangements have been made with the school band in mind, and a maximum of 100 peo­ ple can be accommodated. The memorandum uiscussed the desirability of bleachers to accom- modrte 2,000 spectators at each of four home games a season. Esti­ mated cost is $15 - seat, or $30,000. The suggestion was made tha. con­ tributions from graduating classes, sports enthusiasts and other inter­ ested citizens might help to de­ fray the expense. Building Use A building use report was dis­ cussed briefly by the Board. Local policy is to charge non-school adult groups out-of-i zket expenses to the school district - light, heat and janitorial fees - when the school buildings are used after school hours. The Board approved payment of General Account bills in the amount of $11,011.39; Building Ac­ count bills of $491.96; Internal Aa- count bills of $201.27; and Cafeteria Account bills fo $5,178.39. Funds to Continue Service Sought by Ambulance Corps Letters went out this week to 2.50C families in New Castle, to open the annual appeal of the Ambulance Fund of Chappaqua Past 453, American Legion. M. Donald Cadman is chairman of the Ambulance Fund Commit­ tee, which seeks operating funds to maintain the ambulance serv­ ice provided by the local post for the entire community. The money Chappaqua Chamber Orchestra Has World-Famous Conductor Boris Koutzen, Conductor of the Chappaqua Chamber Orchestra which witl present its Premiere Concert Feb. 7 in the Horace Greeley High School Auditorium, Chappaqua, is known throughout the music world as an eminent conductor, composer and violinist. Born in Russia, Dr. Koutzen's musical career began at the age of eleven when he made his debut as a concert violinist. At seventeen, he won a national competition for the post of first violinist of the Moscow State Opera House Or­ chestra, Later, while attending the Moscow State Conservatory, he joined the Moscow Symphony Or­ chestra which, at that time, was conducted by Serge Koussevitsky. After graduating, he continued his musical v education.in. Berlin while- coricertizing throughout Germany. Soon after arriving in the United States in 1923 \with just enough money in my pocket to join the musicians' union\ he recalls. Dr. Koutzen became a member of the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. In 1925 he was appointed head ofj the violin department of the Phil­ adelphia Conservatory of Music, a position he still holds. Four years later he embarked upon a long career as a concert violinist tour­ ing the country extensively for several years. Arturo Toscanini chose Dr. Koutzen to be one of the Charter Members of the NBC Symphony Orchestra m 1937 where he re­ mained for eight years. In recent years his busy musical life has BORIS KOUTZEN been devoted to conducting and teaching at the Philadelphia Con­ servatory and at Vassar College, composition and occasional con­ cert appearances. He was en­ gaged as Conductor of the Chap­ paqua Chamber Orchestra in Sept. 1958. In addition to his reputation as an accomplished violinist (The New York Times described his playing as \Sincere and serious, always in perfect taste and ad­ mirable in phrasing and sense of structure\) Boris Koutzen is fa­ mous throughout the world as a composer. He studied composition in Moscow under Leo Zetlin and Rhinehold Gliere. His first symphonic work was performed by ,,the -Y. Philadelphia Symphony in 1924- TO&^:the^com- poser conducting. 'One of his best known early works is \Valley Forge\ which was premiered in 1940 by the National Orchestral Assn. and performed later by the NBC, Chicago and Cleveland Sym­ phony Orchestras. \Valley Forge\ won the Juilliard Publication Award in 1944. Two other award- winning compositions are: \Music or Saxophone, Bassoon and Cel- o\ and his Second String Quar­ tet. The latter has been widely programmed by the Coolidge, Primrose and Gordon String Quar­ tets. The Boston Symphony with Koussevitsky played his Concerto for Five Solo Instruments and his Concert Piece for 'Cello and String Orchestra has been per­ formed by some of the nation's leading 'cellists. Of the latter work the New York Times applauded: \Could be heartily commended... Richly scored and finely construct­ ed\ and commenting upon his Second String Quartet, the Times said. \A noble creation. A worthy addition to the ensemble litera­ ture \ Amazing as the career of Boris Koutzen is, the accomplishments of his musical family are equally extraordinary. His wife, Inez Koutzen, is widely known as a concert pianist, accompanist and teacher. His son, George Koutzen was formerly the youngest mem­ ber of the NBC Symphony, was the founder and current Director of the Knickerbocker Chamber Players who currently are on an extended concert tour of the United States, and is first cellist with the Symphony of the Air. George Koutzen has also per­ formed as a concert cellist in the leading music halls of the coun try. Dr. Koutzen's daughter, Na- dia, played with the Rochester Civic Orchestra at the age of eight and appeared as a violin soloist with the Philadelphia Sym phony at the age of nine. She has been a leading concert violinist ever since, appearing with most of the major Symphony Orches­ tras, and playing concert tours of the U.S., South America and Eu­ rope. Her sole teacher has been her father. Dr. Koutzen is enthusiastic about his newest musical assignment as Conductor of the Chappaqua Chamber Orchestra. He feels that the establishment of a permanent small orchestra in the North West­ chester area will contribute ma­ terially to its artistic and cultural life. Dr. and: Mrs. Kbirfzen's home is :on Cedar Ave^, Pie'asantville.^ :t -' is used to provide such necessities as fuel, oxygen, rent, repairs and equipment. It is also hoped that some money can be put aside for eventual replacement of the pres- dent ambulance, now ten years old. The American Legion Ambulance Corps maintains a squad of 20 men ready 24 hours a day to man its ambulance and provide im­ mediate ambulance service in any emergency. The service is available, without charge, on call from doctors or from the New Castle police. Over 100 calls for service were answered by the corps during the past year.

This is about 200 acres less than the Planning Board recommended be upzoned. Nearly all of the 200 acres not upzoned by the Town Beard are on the south side of United Fund Elects New Officers, Board Members Thomas Nast was elected presi­ dent of the United Fund of North­ ern Westchester at the first meet­ ing of the permanent board of di­ rectors on last night. Mr. Nast, a resident of Croton Falls, is pyesi- dent of the Kensico ube Company of Mt. Kisco, and treasurer of the Boys' Club of Mt. Kisco. Other officers elected for the coming year were John F.

Not included are Seventy-two Chappaqua listings, 10 in Millwood and 239 in Mount Kisco are included in the January 1959 issue of the Dun & Bradstreet Reference Book, according to Har­ rison Harper, manager of the New York office of Dun & Brad­ street, Inc. The new issue of the reference book contains listings for 11,662 certain tervice and professional type businesses, so that the total number of businesses in the coun­ ty would actually be somewhat higher than the quoted figures. There was no change this year in the relative standings of the five top towns in Westchester, based on the number of business names listed. They are: Yonkers, 2,285; Mount Vernon, 1,488; White Plains, 1,313; New Rochelle, 1,065; and Port Chester, 644. In one of its heaviest mail-outs, Dun & Bradstreet, Inc. sent out early this month about 3,000,000 letter requests for financial state­ ments to commercial businesses in the United States and Canada. The letters are sent to every busi­ ness listed in the reference book. The return of the financial state­ ment by the proprietor or his ac­ countant is the first step in es­ tablishing responsibility for com­ mercial credit transactions. The statement becomes part of the credit report on his business along with a financial analysis, a des cription of what the business does the background of the business and its owner, and a record of how if pays its bills. On the basis of the information in the report, a rating is assigned and the businessman is listed in the book. This makes it possible for his suppliers and insurance un derwritsrs to look him up and make prompt decisions on his re­ quests foi credit and insurance In other words, should a manu facturer or wholesaler receive an order for merchandise from merchant can be checked in the merchant in Westchester County the listing and rating of the mer­ chant, can be checked in the refer­ ence book. Regardless of where the supplier is located, the West­ chester merchant's listing will be available to him since the listing is carried in every issue of- the Dun & Bradstreet Reference Book in the United States and Canada Every business in the county will be visited at least once. Some of these calls have already been made. Nine commercial reporters cover the county for Dun & Brad­ street. Fund were elected as follows: Armonk, Carl M. Loeb Jr., Phil­ ip C.

The Valley Ridge section north of Roaring Brook road will also remain zoned in one-acre plots. 200 Acres Chopped The property rezoned was dis­ cussed three hours early last month at an open hearing attend­ ed by more than 100 citizens.

Ralph S Stdwell said he dian'* think it was in the best interest of the people living on the property. In contrast with Stowell's opin­ ion, board member William A. Grier said that he would have voted for the upzoning of all the land recommended by the Plan­ ning Board.
