Board President Robert Weiss
noted that the board had made no
decision on the proposed plan and
refused to allow a poll of the
board members. A two year
phase- out of Parkway Oaks
would save $ 150,000 the first year
and $ 220,000 the second year, plus
the $ 245,000 the board says it
would cost to keep the building in
repair, including a new roof.
The board claims that Parkway
Oaks was singled out as the
first of three schools proposed for
closing by 1960 is because that
school would cost three times as
much to keep in repair than any
other district school.
Mrs. Richman claims that
" taxpayers are willing to pay for
quality education." While the
board cites the number of budget
defeats suffered in the past and
says it is dedicated to trying to
achieve a zero tax increase this
year u possible.

A Farmingdale girl, a senior at
Holy Trinity High School, is
credited with saving the life of a
traffic accident victim.
Jackie Humpf, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Jack Humpf of 4 Regina
Road, Farmingdale, dragged the
injured man from his burning car
only seconds before the gas tank
The heroic deed came to the
attention of the Post this past
week as Jackie told her story in
an ^ article in her high school
newspaper, the " Trinity
According to Jackie's story,

Because the dinner dance has
always been such an enjoyable
evening, Mrs. Pfoh said she has
received numerous requests to
postpone the event so that people
would be able to attend again this
year. " Fortunately, the Holiday
Manor in Bethpage was most
cooperative," Mrs. Pfoh said,
" and they have managed to
provide us with another date."
She noted that an additional
benefit to the new date is that
instead of being on a Friday
night, the Heart Fund Ball will
now be on a Saturday night.

ran to the jeep where she saw
that the driver was trapped, but
still conscious. " I didn't want to
move him for fear that I would
aggravate his injuries, so I told
him, I'd be right back, I'm going
to get some help."
As Jackie was returning to her
car the jeep's engine caught fire
and she ran back. " His legs were
tangled," Jackie said, " so I
entered the passenger side of the
vehicle and untangled them. I
then pulled him to a safe area and
covered him with a blanket I had
in my car. Immediately afterwards
the gas tank exploded."
Jackie went to the side of Route
109 and started waving for help,
but no one stopped. She then
remembered passing a
policeman further back on the
highway and went looking for
him. She found the police car and
led the officer back to the scene of
the accident to find several more
police cars already at the cite and
an ambulance on its way.
The victim" Domion Nikadapis,
suffered a broken leg, slight
concussion and four broken ribs,
but he would be alright, his wife
reported in a phone call to Jackie
the next day. Nikadapis also
wrote Jackie a letter from the
hospital saying " You risked your
life to save mine, for this I thank
Four days later, Mrs.
Nikadapis called to tell Jackie
that she just found out that she
was pregnant with their first
child. " She told me," Jackie said,
" If it hadn't been for you, my
baby would have no father."
" I'm elated that I did
something right," Jackie said,
