There has been considerable objection to this on the part of the neighbors and the Board insists the noise, especially of the large organ used, most be lessened, or ¦o license will be allowed; <al8o that the dancing most close at 12 o'clock sharp Mr. Kerr said he wanted to abide by the decision of the Board but eould not see why he should hfn com¬ pelled to close at 12 o'clock while oth¬ er dance places, especially the Elks Club, was allowed to continue till 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning. He was informed the Board expected the Elki to also close their dance hefore the Sabbath day began. Mr. Kerr is planning an extension on the rear of the building, and said Im had noticed an item to the effect tliat he was violating flre ordnances. He wanted to know if he were violat¬ ing them any more than when S. P. Pettit bnilt his stores on West Mer¬ rick Road. He was advised that the present Board hod not made any ex¬ ceptions to the ordnance regarding wooden buildings, but his proposed ex¬ tension was not within the limits of the preicrib^ ordinance.

Willams, who was seri¬ ously cut about the face and head when the anto in which she was ridhig with her husband, ran into a Li>ng Island Railroad train at the main crossing at Garden City Tuesday ev¬ ening, is in Nassau Hospital for treatment. Hr. and Mrs. Williams ki^ been callfaig oh Mrs. Williams' Bister, Mrs. Edwin Wendler, at the hospital, and wel^ on their way homtf. Aa they reached the crosshig Mr. Wil- ttama slowed down. There was a trol¬ ley standing on the opposite side of the tsack, aad a man holding a lan¬ tern. This man, Mr. Williams after¬ ward found ont, was the flagman, but Mr. Williams noticed him particularly aad as he was not signalling and was aot in the eent«ir of the tracks, Mr. Williams supposed that he was con- •eeted with the trolley, and the gates befaiir ap. he started ahead, when sud¬ denly a Long Island Railroad train dashed across. Mr. Williams was un- iMe to stop his car before it struck 1^ train, and his wife was thrown forward with great force through the wfaid shield.

Moon, from Coblenz, a copy Of. a cir¬ cular of information regarding spe¬ cial education for soldiers of Army Troop, Third Army, which is now on exhibition st oor office. An Expression of Our Appreciation We are indebted to the Village Board'of Trustees, first for thehr un¬ animous approval of the Nassau Coun¬ ty Review for the offlcial paper of the village for the ensuing year. As a matter of fact, the Review is the only paper that can be appointed now, be¬ ing the only paper printed or pub¬ lished in the village, but the Board of Trustees was not aware of the law in this case and made the designation because they considered the Nassar County Review the representative pa¬ per of the village. Secondly, because of their changing the meeting time of the Board from Thursday to Wednesday. This is the first time within our recollection that a viUage board of trustees in Freeport has considered the newspapers when making their designation, meeting either "rharsday or Friday, so that the news was a week late before it could be printed. Meeting now a day earli¬ er gives ample time to report their meetmgs the day rather than the week, after they occur. Local Items The Review is always willing to publish social items and news of a general character which will be of in¬ terest to its readers, and will greatly appreciate it if such items be brought or sent to the Review office. Matter which ii not left personally at the of¬ fice should, however, be signed by the sender, as a proof of good faith but not for the (Purpose of publishing the .render's name. Don't Get Too Soft-Hearted^ The writer listened to Scout Jo^ Cassell, one of the first men to enter the war with the English Army, who spoke at the Methodist Church Sun¬ day evening, going very briefly into some of his experiences. We wore impressed with the 'fact that it was very difficult for him to restrain him¬ self when speaking of the fiendish acts he had seen/committed by the Hun barbarians, «nd after hearing him tell of sonv of the things he had seen, and which he said were not comparable with some he could not tell about, we were deeply im¬ pressed with his advice not to "Get too soft hearted with this 'love thine enemies stuff'" he said that injunc¬ tion was not intended for a person who was not repentant for the wrong he had done and the only repentance there was yet in the mind of the Hun was the regret for what he had done because of the posaibility of punish¬ ment, and not for the barbarous way in which he had tortured men, wo¬ men and children.

The three degrees of Masonry were conferred upon a candidate from Luf¬ bery Field at a special communica¬ tion last Friday evening. Although that was the night of the blizzard, there was an attendance of about 30 Masons at this meeting and the de¬ grees were worked by the officers and members ot Spartan Lodge. Burglars Couldn't Get In Burglars attempted to force an en¬ trance into the shoe store of C. D. Smith, South Main Street, Monday ev¬ ening. This is the fourth time Mr. Smith's store haa been entered in this way, and he now has the back of the building strongly protected, the only window being in the toilet, with the others boarded up at night. A glass was broken out of this window but the door to the toilet was locked and the midnight visitors found it im¬ possible to get it open, although they brought in a big iron bar and tried to pry it. Nothing was known of the visit until Mr. Smith's assistant, Har¬ old Guest, opened the store in the moming, and saw the window open, and on investigation found the bar where it had been left after being used unsuccessfully. "Better Luck Next Time" The visitors or some others re¬ turned Wednesday night, via the aec¬ ond floor and emptied Mr. Smith's cash drawer. Denies Existence of "Basket Cases" In Army Hospitals The War Department authorizes the following statement from thc of- ! fice of the Surgeon General: The Surgeon General of the Army, Major General Merritte W. Ireland, denies emphatically that there is any foundation for the stories that have been circulated in all parts of the country of the existence of "basket cases." in our hospitals. A basket case is a soldier who has lost both legs and both arms and therefore can¬ not be carried on a stretcher. Gen. Ireland says; "I have person¬ ally examined the records and am able to say that there is not a single bas¬ ket case either on this side of the wat¬ er or among the soldiers of the A. E. F. Further, I wish to emphasize that there has been no instance of an American soldier so wounded during the whole period of the war." Whether malicious or not, ttie rum¬ or of auch mutilations has been per- sis^nt It comes from passengers on trains, from strangers in hotel lob¬ bies, and even from war workers of known patriotism. Such stories may now be stopped with an absolute de¬ nial.

Waauafa OwamHtf The Women's Comwittia U vary irraiefBl to all thr«« «h» resp>nd«d (Gaaitfauwd on Pups 4) There is often considerable discos- sion as to the powers of those in. charge of motor apparatus. The fol¬ lowing were adopted by tbe Fire Coaaeil in 1916, and are in effect to¬ day, just as they were adopted: Section 1.

The CapUin of each Com¬ pany is alone responsible for the ar¬ rival of his apf>ii^tus at any desig¬ nated locality, and as such is author¬ ized to tak any action to assure such arrival, not in conflict with Depart¬ ment or Company by-laws. Sec. S. The chief driver shall have supervision of motor apparatus at all times, under control of the Cap¬ tain or Chief in charge, except as oth¬ erwise specified. He shall take appa¬ ratus to all fires when he is at the house in time for it to leave, remain with it at fires, uid return same to quarters upon orders from the Cap¬ tain. In the absence of the chief driver, any assistant driver shall act as such, who shall when acting as such, be subject to all the duties of chief driver. He shall start the engine at lesst once each twenty-four hours, unless excused by the Captain for a stated period. Hhe shall report at once all needed repairs, and shall be consid¬ ered as keeping the engine in repair as far as in his power if it shall start easily and quickly upon each trial and continue running until stopped by him. He shall keep a record, in a book provided for that purpose, of the test made by him each day, giving the con¬ dition of the apparatus, runs made, etc. ( Sec. 4.

This bonus is not payable to the heirs or representatives of any deceased sol¬ dier. Thoee who are discharged here¬ after will receive this bonus on the same roll or voucher upon which they are paid their final pay. In order to receive this bonus it will be necessary to present discharge pa¬ pers. The Nassau County Chapter has arranged to aend these discharge papers by special messenger to Wash¬ ington in order that they will surely be retumed to the individual soldier or nurse. ^Arrangements can be made at the various local Red Cross ^^ad- quarters for transportation to Mineola on Saturday, March 29 and April 5. Communications or inquiries can be addressed to Mrs. P. L. Keays, Nas¬ sau County Chapter House, Mineola, L. I., telephone, Garden City 1490. Mrs. Keays assures all applicants that discharge papers will be quite safe in the hands of the Homh Service Bu¬ reau and will be well guarded and re¬ tumed to the owner at an early date. OM Jobs Or Better for All Wounded Men Thousands of American soldiers so maimed in the fighting in France as to be unable to return to their old employment, are unaware that the .American Government has made ev¬ ery provision for their complete re¬ habilitation in civil life. Many of the Wounded will be able to go back to their old jobs so Uncle Sam's greatest anxiety is to flnd and tell those who cannot that he-^eill train them for new vocations, pay all bills, including the living expenses, and also assist any dependents of the soldier while he is being refitted for civilian usefulness. It is a matter of paramount importance to the na¬ tion and the soldier alike, and accord¬ ingly tiie program provided by Con¬ gress is the most liberal adopted by [any nation in the war. At least 20,000 disabled fighters arc entitled to the benefits offered by the Federal Board for Vocational Educa MERRICK ''**'J^T'„*'tJ*'*** *» *^- w.iLUa. tiW»*« »* aU K*m .hMU k« Met •• Ua to hwars iuatiea amitr tkia >M<tas Services at the Church of the Re¬ deemer Sunday, the fifth in Lent, at 7:30 A.

To this end the country is be¬ ing combed from coast to coast to lo¬ cate all who do not understai# that a- new start in life whieh will make them self-supporting and independent is theirs for the asking.

Edwards regarding the sewer conditions in Freeport, and at our re¬ quest, he has written the following communication embodying his ideas in this matter. The question is one that we must eventually meet, and which we may well begin to consider very carefully.—Ed.) March 24, 1910. Dear Sir:— (ftobably it might be in order for me to point out some of the prevail¬ ing conditions of our village which prevent progress and growth to our good town. Since the first day of Janoary, 1919, I have been unable to furnish homes for not less than three to four hundred families, all of which were willing to pay in the neighborhood of |26 to $76 a month rent There is nothing in the town to rent and it seems unfort¬ unate for the growth of oor Village that such a condition exists. I have a party from New York who is witlmg to expend approximately $200,000 on a first class apartment house provided sewerage disposal can be guaranteed. The disposal of sew¬ erage from an apartment of forty to flfty families could not be taken care of by cesspool arrangements, bat reg¬ ular sewerage would be necessary. TJm erection of an apartment of tjiis nature in our vilkge would aid ery materially hi tbe qoestion of em- ployment; trade to our local aier- chants; mcrease ot assessment; thus jliaviair a tendency fer rednelSsti of taxes; and consnmption of ths villsge water and electricity. There is no doubt, if one apartment was started in this village it wouU be filled immediately and woald be fol¬ lowed by other investers in construct¬ ing this ehiss of house. It strikes me that consideration of a sewerage disposal plant for the Vil- hve of Preeport is worthy of very serious consideration. I am of the opinion that the money expended by our residents in clean¬ ing of cesspools is more than enough to teke care of the expense of a bond¬ ed hidebtednes4 hi carryi|>g charges for a disposal plant In addition to the development of Freeport by the histallatioo at a aaw. arage disposal plaat there is ao deobt that Vae Board of Health will^gres ttiat it wsold idd nattriaay ta ths, health at oar good team. yeara aaer hit^ CLASJBICK k.
