Joining the Village Trustees are members of the Library Board of Trustees and the Friends of the Lynbrook Library who unanimously supported the Village Board's decision on February 6th to build an addition to renovate the old library. -s^ by Mildred Roeitier The season to be jolly and gift giving has long gone with a few winter's blasts; and, less welcome gifts of sniffles, ^coughs, aches, and pains have arrived. Thoughts sometimes turn (among old timers) to friendly words, free pills, and HOUSE CALLS. Shortly after moving from bustling, busy days in Brooklyn to East Rocka-way, ye historian noted that "number 2" son seemed glassy-eyed and had a fever. In a panic, a neighbor was called and the name of Dr. Arthur D. Jaques was given. Less than an hour after the call was made, a dignified gentleman with greying hair and a clipped moustache was at the door, carrying a small black bag. He greeted the young patient with a smile and a cheerful, "Well, let's see what we have here, sonny," The diagnosis was "scarlet fever." Ye historian had read Louisa M, Alcott's book "Little Women" many times and knew that Beth, the youngest sister, had died after a siege with dreaded scarlet fever. "Don't worry, mother," the doctor said opening his black bag and selecting one of the many carefully arranged bottles inside. "Have him take two of these every three hours, and keep in touch with me." Then he tacked a sign reading "QUA-A Country Doctor RANTINED" on the front door. Packing up his bag. Dr. Jaques then left the house and walked to the curb where he had parked his bicycle. It was summer and he was off in a flash to ease the pain of another suffering patient. Dr. Jaques had his office and home on Atlantic Ave. at the site of the present East Rockaway Nursing Home. He sang in the choir of Bethany Church, where his wife was active in the Wom-en's League. His son, the late Dr. Allan Jaques, taught Sunday School and daugh-ter, Margaret was confirmed there. In 1948 Dr. Jaques also headed The Board of Health for Nassau County, and was once selected as "General Practitioner of New York State" for that year.
