It la feared that tha high cost of right of way may. daisy the Im ­ provement for some time, perhaps Indefinitely. Although none of the officials would make a statement following ths conference. It was In ­ ferred that tha meeting bad cot been entirely successful. New plana are expected to be drawn and submitted 'within two weeks to tha village officials for judgment. The first plans for the Albany Post Road widening called for expenditures which it Is under ­ stood were too high' for ths village lo meet. In paying Ita share of the improvement. * Hopes were entertained however, - *hat the new plans would meet the -■lure which the village officials aril -f the opinion ths community can ie«t. or that soma other compi Use may be arrived at perhaps the division of cost of tha Improve ­ ment. County Engineer Charles Mac ­ Donald. Jay Downer, Chief Engi ­ neer of the Westchester County Park Com mission: Henry R- Bar ­ rett. Counsel for the Park Com ­ mission. Mayor Frederick W. Grosa of North Tarrytown. Abe Sodoaky, village Attorney, met here yester ­ day.

All the drawbacks ever confronl- ig a new thing wore present. The precise - limits dr authority, the ap ­ proved method of procedure, the meeting of minds not yet used to the conference habits of each other, these things mode It plain to the commissioners, themselves, that there are several twilight rones of legal obscurities and practical ob- cles through which the body ist feel Its way before coming up- the high road to well-principled action. Upon one essential point, . rer. there 1s no division at all. In ­ stead there Is dynamlo unanimity which romlaea that nothing un ­ toward In real estate development within the area of the town will escape the board members. They require personal Inspection of the premises Involved In each subdivision brought lo their alien- street, although latter had tlon for approval, whether unof- permit, ficlal and preliminary as those in date have been, or official and need Ing conclusive official action. This aspect of vigilance on the part of the merobere of the dual body, now acUng chiefly na a plan ­ ning board. In which capacity Ita powers are extreme, waa well Illus ­ trated last night in three Instances. Twice Chairman Eylar apoptnted a committee of two to visit the prop ­ erty Involved. In company with the applicant's engineer, and once the board resolved to Inspect a pro- seed subdivision area In a body. John Kakerbeck and F. Morden Clark were detalled-to examine a 1 proposed development north Elmsford and east of the Saw Mill River road, known as the Paine street development- Engineer Daniel C. Nolan of Cotswold Way appeared for the owner.. Mr. Clark again, and Seeba W. Bullock got the assignment to In ­ vestigate property hear tha Inter ­ section of Hartsdale and Secor roads. John Heeney appeared as mglneer to present tho plan of this subdivision to the board. The entire board Is to visit But ­ ler park, the proposed development of seventy acre* south of the Harts ­ dale Railroad station and adjoining the railroad right of way. the Scnrs- dale Golf Club, and on the south, property of Alexander M.

Miss Marloric Sti AWARD BID District Attorney May Move for Re-trial ofR.H. SloaneMonday Convicted of Automobile Theft (Continued From Paga One) he waa County Judge on the strength-qf affidavits made by two prison convict*. Frank Hawks and Edward Snyder. « County Judge Frederick P. Close, who will preside at the re-trial, yes ­ terday signed an order directing tho warden* of Sing Sing and Dane- mora Prisons to produce Hawks and *8nyder. respectively. In court for the trial. This Indicates that Sloane plana to use the convicts as his chief wit ­ nesses. He Is expected to conduct his own defense as he has done on previous occasions in court — here. Stuart Baker of Ossining/ who ad ­ vised him during his trial two years ago, will probably act as. counselor for Sloans again. Sloane was brought back here from Sing Sing, after discovery of an alleged plot to break Jalt in which keepers said he waa Impli ­ cated, and tried tor feloniously pos ­ session dangerous weapons — imita ­ tion brass knuckles of prison call manufacture — while serving a term for commission of a felony. The boy convict, whose mother Is a distinguished writer and lecturer, admitted that he had planned to es ­ cape prison but said that ha had abandoned the Idea and after saw ­ ing through his cell door bar* had oontrived a blow torch to weld the bars In place again. He denied that he had planned to use a filed steam pipe valve handle for brass knuckles and said the Instrument wna part of a key he had made to open his cell door. Impressed Jury Although Sloano impressed the jury and a courtroom crowded with spectators and the best legal brains In ths county with his masterful defense and his ingenious Inven ­ tions and articles manufactured with smuggled tools behind cell doors, he was convicted and sen ­ tenced by William F Bleakley. then County Judge, to serve an addlllon- 1 seven years for ths second felony. Sloane now seeks a reversal on le original automobile theft charge. Should he be acquitted of this charge he would then not have been a felon when he was accused of having dangerous weapons and both sentence* could be wiped out. At the time of hi* arrast Sloane wda a student at Columbia Univers ­ ity. He was picked up by New Ro ­ chelle detectives a* hr was driving stolen automobile In Mount Ver- jn. Sloane professed Innocence said that he had been hired to drive It from New Rochelle to.Brooklyn. It is believed that Hawks and Snyder will give Information at the re-trial on hbw the car was stolen. The session In the County Court here next week are expected to be largely attended If the precedent established at previous Sloane trials holds.
