"Obaerver" in Babylon Signal. The silly "curfew law" at Hunting¬ ton, just enacted, will make outsiders think that the mothers of that place as well as the fsthers have no corrtrol over their children. That msy be so, even st that, but try out the parents first and lay before them the danglers of niffht carouninfr and their common sense will do the rest Easy, Huntinfr- tonl
the ao-«alle4 silly "curfew law" prohibits females from beinc: in com¬ pany of uniformed men on the streets or at other places after 9 p.m., and from a common-sense viewpoint is anythinjc but "silly."
"Observer" evidently is unacquaint¬ ed with the situation existing: between uniformed men and femiales of vari¬ ous ages, particularly those in their teens.
The lure of the uniform appears to havV aroused not only among yoong girls, but women who are at the age of discretion, an attraction which is difflcult to understand unless it i^ a mania for which they are not re¬ sponsible-
In Nassau County, and it is to be' assumed that similar condition's have prevailed in Huntington, soldiers have been seen in company of females at all hours of the day and night Wheth¬ er they have or think they have special privileges in this direction, has not been explained, but the situation haa ' received much discussion and some criticism. The imposing of a curfew restriction evidently would be a good move in Nassau villages and in all others where uniformed men travel. The comment of "Observer" that the Huntington curfew will make outsid- ers think that the mothers of that plkce, as well as the fathers, have no control over their children is a twist- : ed conclusion, perhaps an unconscious ' one. The outsiders will think parents silly if they favor a reversal of ac¬ tion by the authorities in adopting the curfew regulation. i
iMany daughters have been making their parents feel "silly" by running with soldiers at night, sneaking away from home at times and on other oc¬ casions putting up some fake excuses to fodl their cnothers and fathers. More than one parent has come bo re¬ alize that their control of daughters is Ivst since the soldiers came to Long Island. Let the curfew remain in Huntington and establish it in other places.

The Brookl/fin Hrtlp Kngt0 of Wed- j ie«« Dean died yesterday. He was .T man of high character and gave the best that was in him to Any I work he undertook. As p>e«ident of Freeport he proved an e^cecutive of force and indus'ry, and his popularity was atteRf.ed by his repeated election to the office h« filled so admirably.
"He also served as president of the Freeport Club and made that organi¬ zation aTiong the most prosperous ^ regular naontihly meeting on Tuea- ed by Mr. Acosta Nichols, who was d»y evening, July 23, at 8.30. The chairman of the Long Island Commit-

Following a conference with W. W. Cocks, Governor Whitman's campaign manager, Lieutenant-'Governor Ed¬ ward Schoeneck announced he would enter the Republican primary this fall for re-nomination.

in gathering it.
President Reynolds arid his col¬ leagues, it has been stated,, intend to stop this careless and untidy prac¬ tice, and for that reason have placed signs announcing that lunch parties would be barred from the bsach. In this move, it would appear that they had a perfect and reasonable right to make such a restriction. They want to keep the beach clean and doubtless acted without a thought of discriminating against local residents.
In view of the fact that in many municipalities of the state there are sections of the city inhabited by peo¬ ple of foreign birth who cannot read the English language, the regulation provides that if twenty-five per cent of the customers of any retailer are accustomed to using any one foreign language, instead of the English,lan¬ guage, the retailer shall display a translation of the notice into such foreign language-

"Lutheran Camp Pastor Alvin E- Bell conducts a regular program of devdtional services as w^il as enter¬ tainments, parties, concerts, etc. For instance, on Wednesday evening, July 10, at eight o'clock, a social and lawn party was given for the Luther¬ an merf of the camp and their friends, at the "home of Miss Clarke, 1412 John's road, near the base hospital. Ga'mes and refreshments played very important parts in the program, the music being furnished by the military band from headquarters otf^the Ma¬ chine Gun Training Centre; 'H. E. Crause, director. All the nurses of the base hospital, convalescent patients permitted leave of absence, and sol-, diers of the camp were cordially in¬ vited regardless of their religious af¬ filiation.
