It was said traiJ^of ^garbage were .frequently lef^ by trucks. Also it was suggested the house-wives be required to separate paper from garbage instead of dumping everything into one container. It was said such regulations are im-posed- in other- .villages, and collec-tors are instructed to refuse to empty containers unless the rule is followed. It also was decided to inquire into the time consumed by traffic officers in filling out forms at the end of the day in reporting on "tickets" issued to violators of the traffic laws.

An audience tha t comfortably filled the Council Chamber listened with interest as Mr. Moore others spoke, and the man-and consensus was that Freeport had set an example in Fourth of July ob-servances that might well be fol-lowed by other communities, and that the meeting should be made an annual event. Following the singing of "The Star Spangled Banner," the Rev. R. G. Harris, pastor of the Second Baptist Church and president of the Freeport Inter-Faith Clergy Council, offered the invocation, fol-lowing. which. Horace E.

Mr. Moore then ga,ve his interpretation of the historical document. Dissatisfaction With Crown He pointed out that in 1775, Long Island was not a part of the United States of America or of New York State, but a section of one of the! 13 independent colonies that exist-ed at that time. "One deep, common, gnawing' dissatisfaction, however, was mould-ing them into a unified purpose," he continued. "They had come here to be free men and the king had been treating them like slaves. The grievances had mounted over a long period; they had become more and more intolerable." He told how fighting had broken out in Massachusetts and else-where but said that at that time although hostillBes were under way, they were simply in protest against the oppression and in-dignities of the Crown, with the hope that a show of force would persuade the disdainful king to Stanley M.

Frederick Welsch, Nassau County "Sanitary Engineer, would speak at the Au-gust meeting of the group. Practically the entire meeting was devoted to a discussion of the defeat of the sewer bond referen-dum by the taxpayers of the vil-lage.

Mr. White is seeking the co-op-eration of the South Shore Council of Chambers of Commerce with an eye to making the pageant a south Nassau event. With this in mind, present plans call for a line of march from Freeport west to Valley Stream, north to Malverne, then to Hempstead, east to V/an-tagh and back to Freeport. The reason for all this pomp and ceremony is the Gold Cup race to tie sponsored by the South Shore 'Yacht Club in Bockaway Inlet off Lombardo, orchesta leader and Freeport resident, captured. - the Gold Cup race at Detroit last Aug-ust, and being a member of the South Shore Yacht Club he elected to make that sponsor of the organization the 1947 competition. Unfortunately, at present there is no place off the Freeport coast in whicfi the~ race can— be- run. so arrangements were made to con-duct it in Jamaica Bay. Consequently Freeport is going all out in recognition of the event, the 43d annual race.

He said Freeport had every-thing needed to develop into a prosperous community and said the Hiamber was spreading the gospel r,f making people conscious of the U.i-ro arc for the vil-lage.
