Assists Boaters In Distress

Senior Squadron of the Civil Air
Patrol has begun a Sundown
Patrol in cooperation with the

Alarmed over reports of a
recent sharp increase in reports
of vandalism at schools, religious

buildings, in Nassau and Suffolk
Counties, Assemblyman Martin
Ginsberg today said he will reintroduce
at the next session of
the Legislature, a bill holding
parents responsible for up to
$ 1,000 in malicious mischief
damages caused by their children.

minimized if parents of these unruly

caused by their children.
" My bill," Ginsberg said,
" was killed last year in committee
in the Legislature's last
minute rush to adjourn.
