A striking example how one
can overcome a physical handicap
and become an outstanding
college student is vivdly
portrayed by Mrs. Elizabeth
Saposnick of 98 Carmans Road,
A victim of a serious
automobile accident several
years ago, the Farmingdale
resident asked no quarter from
any one while earning a highly
reputable grade point average,
3.03, to receive her degree in
Medical Laboratory Technology
tomorrow morning, Friday, at
the 52nd annual Commencement
at State University at Farmingdale.
A student of nursing at Farmingdale
in 1966, Mrs. Saposnick
was involved in a serious
automobile accident that they
thought would not only bring an
end to her educational career, but
she also was not expected to live.
In a cooperative effort with the
Division of V o c a t i o n al
Rehabilitation, the former
' nursing student was readmitted to
Farmingdale in Medical
Laboratory Technology where
special schedules were arranged
to allow for her physical
problems. She now will be
numbered among those being
graduated next Friday with a fine
3.03 average. She was recently
married and plans to join her
husband in Woodbridge, Virginia.
Another handicapped student
Miss Claudia D. Hempton,
Syosset, a victim of polio since
childhood also will graduate with
an excellent index of 3.37.
In describing how both Mrs.
Saposnick and Claudia overcame
their serious handicaps,
Professor Rothstein says, " I
never had a moment of doubt
about these two students. Their
desire to succeed despite severe
handicaps is an outstanding
example of moral fibre that can
serve as an example to all of us."

Sch° ol Board Candidates: The Last Week The count has not changed: There will be four candidates for the
Farmingdale school board elections next Wednesday. Roy Spinetta
is running to succeed himself and is challenged by Larry Enteen,
while Frank Gelish and Stanley D. Martyna are battling for the seat
left vacant by retiring board member Florence de Haan.
After Spinetta announced his York is employed at Grumman
candidacy, his opponent Larry
Enteen weighed in with the observation
" My own business
backround will be of help to me
in working on school budgets. But
also, I'd like to see students in
Farmingdale as excited about
their own education as I have
been about mine. I'd like to help
to create the kind of atmosphere
in which that can take place."
Mr. Enteen lives at 19
Meadowwood Lane with his wife
and two children. He is the owner
of a dental laboratory located in
While he was building his
business, Mr. Enteen found time
to pursue his own education on a
part time basis. He has taken
courses at several colleges in the
Metropolitan area, including
Queens College and NYU.
Spinetta and Martyna are
running as a team Martyna, a
graduate of City College New
Aerospace Corporation as a
Systems engineer. He is a
member of St. Kilian's Church
and the Knights of Columbus. He
has also served as a committee
member of the Boy Scouts and
assisted at Little League. During
the past year he was appointed by
Mr. Spinetta to serve on the
Citizens Financial Advisory
Committee on transportation.
Martyna is also active in community
affairs, presently serving
as chairman of the St. Kilian
Parish Council Civic Action
He has resided at 30 Eleventh
Ave. for the past 10 years, is
married with three children
enrolled in the local schools,
W( K) dward Parkway, Mill Lane
and Senior High.
In announcing his candidacy he
issued the following statement:
" I believe my educational
background in engineering < 12
years evenings) educational
credits ( 22 at CW Post) and experience
will be an asset to the
board. Since a school board is
only as effective as the
qualifications of its individual
members, it is important to
select candidates who will work
in your behalf in setting
educational policies and adopting
budgets. The difference will
mean Quality Education with
which we can all be proud and at
a reasonable cost, rather than at
a high cost."
Concerning his candidacy to
succeed himself, Roy Spinetta
" If re- elected, I look for
greater participation of the
community in our school affairs.
Involvement will promote a
better understanding of the fiscal
and educational problems that
are facing our community in
these economically depressed
" Savings can only be obtained
by community knowledge and the
formation of dedicated citizens
committees. These committees
must be made up of citizens of
different backgrounds who are
concerned with the rising costs of
educating our children beyond
the ability of the community to
pay without extreme burden.
" Our school district can look
forward to a continued decline in
our elementary school
enrollment, which should enable
us to effect some additional
savings. Of prime importance
will be the decision made on the
use or disposal of the Main Street
school and our present administration
" Another strong plea to our
State Legislators for a change in
the financing of our "< ehpols other
than a property tax must be one
of our priority items.
" Informed and active citizens
can help turn the tide of our ever
increasing tax burdens in the
years ahead by becoming participants
in Citizens Committees.
" I will work with all citizens
to evaluate all aspects of our
schools in an endeavor to help
reduce costs wherever possible
and promote the best education
lor all our children "
