National Advertising Representative AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION 225 \West 39th Slreet , New York City Entered as second-class matter Novem- ber 4 , 1935 , at the postoffice at Medford Station , New York , under the Act of March 3, 1879 .

STOP TAXING FOR WASTE I)i directing- a f orcef ul request to tlie House Ways and Means commit- tee to seek at least .a billion-dollar cut in non-defense national expenses , our Long Island congressman , Leon- ard W. Hall , is talking the language of fairness and common sense. He proves that a man can go along with really emergency measures without being fooled into letting such meas- ure be used as a cloak for activities tliat fall into the luxury or political snap class. Even some of the higher-ups in the New Deal , sobered by sweep of war across the world and the danger to the United States , with its consequent enormous burdens for all the people , have seen the need of throwing over- board the fancy stuff. Secretary Mor- ganthau has spoken out along that line. Faint , all too faint , calls come from the very, top—from President Roosevelt , occasionally. . But so fai- lle has never borne down , never showed his teeth , never given this subject one-hundredth of the atten- tion he has given other things he wanted done. The blame is not all in one quarter. It is lots pleasanter to hand a man a soft political j ob , where he may live off the public treasury , than to pry him loose from the job. It takes moral courage , once having built up a bureau of more or less deba table usefulness , to admit it is not needed and must be discarded. That does not help to win elections—not in ordinary times. But such thoughts should give place to patriotic endeavor now. The people at large are being taxed heavily and will be taxed more heav- ily. They will stand it , for defense. They will not stand it , and ought not to stand it , for supporting an 4 \ army \ of federal sinecure holders running hither and yon , like they did in the days of attempted depression curing through \ made work\ and social ex- periments. Representative Hall' s call is a call for specific action in economy. He heads it straight in the right direc- tion. His suggestion could be fol- lowed , literall y, with all parties con- cerned holding 1 their dignity anil no- body wasting effort on sour post- mortems or name-callings. What the nation needs now is re- lief fro m every dollar of nori-defonsc expenditure that can be saved without sacrificing- a vitally useful function, And the man to schedule the slash is * as Representative Hall says , Presi- dent Roosevelt. .Encouragement from Representa- tive Plall' s constituents in talcing this stand would no .doubt be appreciated by our congressman , and w ould strengthen his position, Teachers ' Association Plans for Regional . Gatherings In Fall Programs for the animal iall meet- ings of the New York State: Teachers associ a tion have been comp leted ac- cording to an announcement made by John W. Dodd , superintendent of schools , Freeport , who is president of tlie association. The association , organized in 1845 , is one of the old- est teach ers associations in the United States. It has a membership of 48 , - 000 teachers. -The state has been divided into ten . zones with meetings scheduled in each zone during- the month of October. Cities in which the teachers will meet - are Buffalo , Rochester , Syra- . ctise , Potsdam , Plattsburg, Albany, Brnghamton , Hempstead , Watertown and New York . , The New York State Teachers as- sociation has , as its declared objec- tive s the promotion of public educa- tion , the advancement of professional standards , and the securing of con- ditions necessary for the greatest ef- ficiency of-teachers aii d scliools. The Long Island zone comprises the teachers of Nassau and Suffolk coun- ties. The -annual meeting in this zone will be held in Hempstead on Friday, October 10. The officers of this zone are : President, Lyle L. Morris , superintendent of schools , Northport; vice-president , Catherine O. Harrington , teacher , j unior high school , Oyster \ Bay; secretary, Earl L. Vandermeulen , princi pal , high school , Port Jefferson. Thumb-jerk Traveler Twice Meets Town Cops And Is Sent to Jail Raymond Brannan , aged 29 , of Hempstead , took too strong a liking to Brookhaven town during the past few days with the result that he will spend the next 30 days , (possibly 120) in Riverhead town , or , to be more spe- cific , in the county jail. Late Th u rsday afternoon , Bi'annan , who is unemployed , was picked up for questioning while hitch-hiking at Selden. Brookhave n Town Police Ser- geant Alvin Smith and Officer Wal- lace Jay, who observed Brannan in thumb-waving action , recalled \that he had . been arrested some time ago on a minor charge involving hitch-hik- ing, and had been told by the judge at that time to desist. After being picked up by the offi- cers , Brannan allegedly became ai>- steporous and was charged with dis- orderly conduct. . After a ni ght in tlie Town hall lockup in Patchogue , Brannan plead- ed guilty before Justice of tho Peace Harold C. Sorenson ol Lake Grove ancl was sentenced to 90 days in the county jail. Execution of the sentence was suspended , however , on the con- dition that Brannan would leave Bro okhaven town. ' Brannan agreed and started west- ward . Just where he deviated from his westward course is not known , but Friday nigh t , ho was arrested at Mastic Beach by Town Officer Char- les Dommy, ' who charged that Bran- nan had beon acting in a disorderly manner in that vicinity. Arraigned before Justice o£ tho Poaco UJysses Johnson of Center Moriches , who was unaware of the Tluirsdny arrest , Brannan pleaded guilty and was sen- tenced to 30 days in the county jail . Action on the original 00-day sen- tence waa withheld , pending comp le- tion of the 30-day tonn ; . . . . f t A GUIDE FOll EVERY MAN In a recent , and rare speech over the radio , in behalf of tho United Service Organizations ' drive for funds to build 360 recreation centers at Army and Navy cantonments , John p. Rockefeller , Jr., listed \tho things that make life most worth living/' Since this talk was delivered , It has been said of- it that it will go down into history along with some of the Titterances of Lincoln and other great men. Mr. Rockefeller said-: \They are the principles on which my wife and I have tried to bring up our family. They are the principles in which my father believed and by which he governed his life . They are tlie principles , many of them , which I learned at my mother ' s knee. They point the way. to usefulness and hap- piness in life , to courage and peace in death. If they mean to you what they mean to me , they may ' perhaps be helpful also to our sons for their guidance and inspiration. - \Let me state them: \I believe in the supreme worth of the individual and in . his ri ght to life , liberty and - the pursuit of happiness. \ \I believe that every right im- plies a responsibility; every oppor- tunity, an obligation , every posses- sion , a duty. \I believe that the law , \yas made for man and not man for the law; that government is the servant of the people and not their master. \I believe in the di gnity of labor , whether with head or hand; that the world owes no man a living but that it owes every man an opportun- ity to make a living. \I believe that thrift is essential to well ordered living and that econ- omy is a prime re quisite of a sound financial structure , whether in gov- ernment , business or personal affairs. \I believe that truth and justice are fundamental toVan enduring social order. \I believe in ' the sacredness of a promise , that \ a man ' s word should be as good as his bond , thai; char- acter—not wealth or power or posi- tion—is of supreme worth. \I believe that the . rendering of useful service is the common duty of mankind and that only in the purifying fire, of sacrifice is the dross of selfishness consumed and the greatness of the human soul set free. \I believe in an all-wise and all- loving Cod , named by whatever name , and that the- individual' s \ highest ful- fillment , greatest happiness ' and wid- est usefulness are to be found in living in harmony with His will. \I believe that love is the greatest thing in the world; that it alone can overcome hate; that right can and will triumph over might. \ .....................—. > »Tf TTyH'VVT '> yTy » WV W » V WO 1 » ' - * TOWN OF BROOKHAYEN Births- July 8—A son , Thomas Edward , to .
