* What we want in the rooms
in the new high school additions
when completed, instead of data
processing, are rooms that look
like and operate like real offices,
instead of a room full of
machinery. We need live teaching-
bring in the outsiders, perhaps,
on a limited basis, to simulate
a real on the job atmosphere?

steps should be taken to

employers. Hoyne said, " Since
you are village employees, you
have every taxpayer as a straw-boss,
so it is imperative to
create a cljmate of mutual understanding.
Ronald Sadowski, Complaint
Investigator of The Incorporated
Village of Massapequa Park and
President of the CSEA unit stated
that there was a duplication of
some of the Park Citizens Party
platform with the Independent
Party. He also pointed out that
the Independent Candidates had
listed in their platform the need
for a blinking light at the Massapequa
Fire House and that this
was not a village matter but one
for the Massapequa Board of
Fire Commissioners. Sadowski
also pointed out that the Independent
Party platform included
a plank for a left turn directional
signal and that this was not a
matter for the village board,
but a matter for New York State.
Aries Wood, Labor Foreman
of The Incorporated Village of
Massapequa Park and Vice
President of the CSEA unit pointed
out to Mrs. Seymour was incorrect
in stating that the employees
did not have classifications
specifications. That the
incumbent board had worked out
that issue with their association.
Sadowski released the information
that the Cost of Living
index had gone up 5.5f70 from
September ' 65 through February
' 67^ according to the latest
figures released by the New York
State Bureau of Labor Statistic.
Therefore the village employees
would receive a cost of living
index across the board in this
same percentage. This does not
affect the annual increments.
Irving Flanenbaum, President
of the Nassau County Civil Service
Employees Association informed
the board that there is a
political action committee being
formed to stand by and spell out
the rights of village employees.
These rights included a decent
living wage; that they be entitled
to certain fringe benefits and
that working conditions would be
on a ' better level'.

ges, Assemblyman Travia, Senator
Zaretski, and Assemblyman
Duryea, as representatives of
your respective parties, to demonstrate
your concern for the
children and schools of this state
by providing funds for and supporting
SI 951 - State Aid To
Local School Districts ( Dom-inick-
Kettler) which will provide
for a rise in the basic
state aid formula from $ 660 to
$ 726 per pupil. The children,
parents, and taxpayers of Long

left to wait until next year.
We would ask you to undertake
this effort as soon as possible
and finish up by Friday, March
3, which is the close of " Lights

petitions, letters and telegrams
should be in Albany the week of
March 6, and should be mailed

many questions on the recreation
program in Plainedge in this

questions concerning the recreation
