Burglary is a problem, but to avoid it hap-pening
to you, a number of things should be
done! Whenever you leave your residence
to spend an evening at the movies, or take
off for a weekend of fun in the sun, house-breakers
can and will move in if they're
certain you've left ^Burglars spend their
daylight hours canvassing neighborhoods,
looking for uncut lawns and overstuffed mail-boxes.
They spend their evening hours look-ing
for darkened houses—or lights that are
left on too long. You can help your police
department reduce burglaries in your city.
Please read the other side and also enjoy'
both security and peace of mind with the
knowledge that your home is protected.

When making plans for an evening, weekend
or extended vacation it will be reassuring to
return to a normally-lighted home with a sense of
well-being and security after following these tips
the Burglary Prevention Committee has suggested:
1. Lock all doors and windows.
2. Arrange lamps and radios/TV in various parts
of your home to be connected to Time-All
automatic timers for use at customary hours
to create a "lived in" appearance to the out-side
3. Leave shades and blinds in normal positions.
•4. Make sure that no deliveries of any kind
(mail, newspaper, milk, etc.) will be made in
5. Arrange to have the lawn mowed or snow
shoveled in its respective season.
6. Store valuables in a safe deposit vault.
7. Close the garage door. (A garage can have
. .-.a particularly abandoned look.)
8. Alert the police and a close neighbor for
unusual activity in your absence.
9. Arrange automatically-timed outdoor lighting
for burglary prevention.
10. Refrain from notifying the newspapers of
your whereabouts until your return.

'Love Arid Quiches" Loves Freeport
"WE LOVE FREEPORT" reads the inscription on the cake held by
Freeport Mayor William H. White (I.) and Director of Business De-velopment
Martin A. Silberg. The cake was sent to Village Hall by
Susan Axel rod, president of Love & Quiches Inc. to express her feel-ings
about the village and the cooperation her company had received.
Axelrod had been just about ready to sign a contract for a large in-dustrial
building in Oceanside in January when she read an ad in The
New York Times placed by Silberg's office, promoting Freeport's
reasonable electric rates. It changed her mind and instead Love &
Quiches is moving their Oceanside-based wholesale bakery business
into a 30,000 square foot previously vacant building at 178 Hanse
Avenue in Freeport this month.

In its continuing evaluation of
the Freeport sewer system as con-tracted
by Nassau County, the
engineering firm of Baldwin &
Cornelius will be testing, the
sewer lines in various areas of the
Village by the use of vapors. The
vapor is non-toxic and non-stain-ing

If vapor does enter, it should be
avoided if possible. It could cause
short-term and temporary irrita-tion
of breathing passages and
coughing spasms. The vapor-quickly

-• Vapor testing is a method of
sources such as damaged pipes
and manholes, improperly con-nected
roof leaders, yard and area
drains, faulty connections, de-teriorated
pipe joints and storm
sewer connections. Success of the
testing can help prevent base-ment
floodings, sewage line back-ups
onto streets, storm sewers,

The Freeport Housing Author-ity
has announced that the income
limits for applicants for family or
senior citizen housing units under
the Authority have been in-creased.
The new limits are $11,650 for
one person; $13,300 for two;
At least 24 hours before the
testing is done, a letter of explan-ation
will be delivered to each res-idence
in the area under test. In-

letters to the occupants. When
this is not possible, the letter will
be left. Inspectors will be prepar-ed-

will be contained in the letter.
The Freeport Police and Fire
Departments will also be notified

The importance of the testing
program can be illustrated by the
fact that during a two inch rain-storm,
if one person out of 50 has
an improper down-spout connect-ed
to the sanitary sewer line from
his one-family house, as much as
1,000 gallons of storm water can
be added to the system. Since the
Village contains over 40,000 resi-dents,
it would not take much to
overload the County's treatment
plant causing untreated water to
enter surrounding waters.
