NNUAL MUSIC FESTIVAL (ric lovers throughout the coun- | now looking forward with the t sort of interest to Westches- fifth Annual Music Festival f the auspices of the Westche: lpunty Recreation Commission. g«nt wyi be staged at the White I Armory on May 9, 10, and 11 * the White Plains High School TV 2C. [fcose wflo are not well inform- -^ding these music festivals, a ts about them may provfe of \ - To begin with they are non- I commercial. Two thousand men and women representing twenty-seven Westchester communities will par­ ticipate in them- . , , Daniel Gregory Mason, head of the Department of Music at Columbia University, recetmy referred to these musical undertakings in a public talk. “ The Westchester Music Fes ­ tival, ’ ’ he said, \is something to be hopeful about. It is the growth of this kind of thing which betokens a new spirit among us today.\ Community singing on such a scale develops self-expression in mu­ sic on a similar large scale and chal ­ lenges the hold which canned music has on the minds of the mass. Large groups getting together for commun ­ ity singing, will tend to break down rigid community barriers and serve to create a real county spirit. The great enthusiasm that those who participate in these annual events take in the hard work of pre­ paring for the festival should cer ­ tainly be rewarded by a groat audi ­ ence on each occasion of their ap ­ pearance. The fact that two thou ­ sand people work so intensely and so whole-heartedly for the success of the festival shows the flowering in our county.of a new spirit; indicates recognition of the value of organiz ­ ing for leisure time.-keeping in step with the modern idea which seek “ the progress of our civilization measured not by what business achieves in this country but by the zest and color which are given to national life through our leisure time activities. ” These festivals have aroused the praise of music critics from ail parts of the east, who have spoken in the ' highest terms of the high character I of the musical programs and the dis- ' tinguished quality of the choral work in Westchester under the leadership of local conductors and Albert Stoeasel. If these critics take such interest, in these events how much more in­ terest should the people of Westches ­ ter take in them. The enthusiasm of the workers and the praise of the critics should stimulate Westchester interest and inspire the county to give th^ festival the greatest of all encour ­ agement — the encouragement of large attendance. DOG LAW AMENDMENT The amendment to the dog law, which was signed recently by Gov­ ernor Roosevelt, not only puts teeth into the law, where they did not ex ­ ist before, but gives extended powers to health authorities in districts cer- 1 titled for rabies. Inasmuch as West- j cheater County and a good portion of the State of New York is now so certified due note of the mges in | the law should be made .he pub ­ lic as well as the health nils. I A very unusual power . conferred on local health officers in such dis ­ tricts in regard to the expenditure of money. Under the amendment such a health officer is authorized to expend all the money necessary for services, dog pounds, etc., to suppress an outbreak of rabies and prevent its extension in his district. Under the amendment he is the sole, judge as to the amount of money to be ex- F 'ended and methods to be followed, t is not necessary for him to ask for funds, consult with or secure permis­ sion of any board or other authority. This is so unusual a power to con ­ fer upon an official that surprise has been expressed in some quarters that Governor Roosevelt did not veto the bill because of this section alone. It is evident, however, that the Govern­ or agreed with the Legislature that very broad powers should be con ­ ferred on health authorities in such cases in order that they may .without any delay institute and carrv on en ­ ergetic and ample methods that will insure the immediate suppression of rabies in their districts. It can read ­ ily be seen that if a lot of red tape had to be gone through in this mat ­ ter rabies might be given & chance to spread and get beyond control and, of course, if authority had to be asked for the expenditure of money, £ official board might hold the mat- wupsotkat rabies would be out of hand OW&'e the money was voted. Commenting on this change in the law, the State Board of Health savs: Considering the very broad powers thus given to the local health officer it is expected that he will use proper judgment in the exercise of his pow­ ers, but irrespective of what pressure may be brought to bear upon him the measures he undertakes should be ample and immediate. Regarding the payment of bills contracted the amendment savs .

A.. THE SPIRIT OF THE PRESS. Because of the Ideal* repro- I-arrhmont sented ’ by the American Lo- FoatTo glon. every real American In 'The Front Weetcbeeter County should M take a personal Interest In the drive that !■ now on to Increase the Stale membership and ehould be espedaUy Inter ­ ested In the efforts of the county Posts along thls Una. • It Is gratifying to know that at the present time the Larchmont Poet ha* exceeded Its quota for 1929 and Is leading the Posts ol the county. Only two other Poets have ex ­ ceeded their quota and Larchmont has them beaten by a narrow margin. Its standing as Just announced la 1.1 per cent and It la fol ­ lowed by Ossining with a percentage of 1.03 and Katonab with 1.01. We are sure that this section of Westches ­ ter would be happy to see Larchmont main ­ tain that leadership right up to the end of the drive. — Larchmont Times. Figures recently released show County that Westchester county has Parkways appropriated a total of 354.804.- 900 for Its great system of park ­ way* and playgrounds during the five years of the general program. Of thle sum 332,352,- 000 was fof land, and 322.452,800 waa for con ­ struction and general Improvement. This Is said to be the largest amount of money ever appropriated by a suburban county In tbs United States tor this particular purpose Tit!* sura of 354.804.900 does not Include the 316,000,000 previously expended for the Bronx River parkway. The coat of thle great un ­ dertaking was shared Jointly by Westchester county and New York city. And It does not Include 32,500,000 already spent on the exten ­ sion of that parkway from Kensloo to the Bear Mountain bridge. Still another appro ­ priation of 32.300,000 was recently confirmed for further extensions by the state. Millions and millions of dollars for pork purposes! It seems Impossible and yet It Is true. It Is no wonder that the Westchester county park system has attracted world-wide comment and praise. The results speak for thenlselvts. We present to the world a chain of parks and parkways that Invite compari ­ son. 'We challenge the world to duplicate the feat, and when we show comparative plcturea — of conditions as they existed before tho work was started and as they are now — our cose la complete. — Mount Vernon Argus. The months of touring, camping Pure out. hiking and picnicking have Water come. Health departments her* and there are giving citizens a lit ­ tle eafety advice. It la fine to get out in the fresh air and sunshine, to live and play out ­ doors as much as possible. But there are certain health precautions which every sen ­ sible person tnkex The first of these Is care about drinking water. \Many persons.\ says a health'officer, “ have the Idea that water from any running stream In the country is pure and fit to drink. If clear and cold, because 'running water puri ­ fies Itself.' There Is a grain of truth In this old saying, but there Is a.pound of falsity In it. also. There I* no way to tell by the ap- pearanee of water whether It la safe to drink. Not even an expert sanitary chemist can tell except by careful analysts\ Tha wise person will avoid wayside streams If It la possible to carry one's own drinking water from home or from any guaranteed pur# source, that la the thing to do. Xny other water should be boiled before drinking. — Yonkers Statesman. Set Clocks Ahead One Hour Tonight Daylight Saving If you are meticulous about such things you win gst up at 2:01 tomorrow morning and set your Clock ahead on* -hour. However, the majority of people residing In town* where the daylight saving time schedules are observed will be satisfied with turning the hands ahead an hour up ­ on retiring tonight. Unless you correct your time pieces, you'll be late for church tomorrow morning. Railroads will operate on Eastern Standard time, but schedules are- arranged to meet the new rush hours. You will loose an hour of sleep tonight, but you will get It back when daylight saving enda on September 29. CONGRESS TODAY Not In session.

Ac­ ker, Police Judge I. N. Valentine, and Street Superintendent Fred D. Grannie. Under the terms of Ossining ’ s special. 118- year-old charter, salaries of village employees or# specifically set by law. ant, any Increase must be approved by the Legislature. The Increases were unanimously voted by the Vlllago Board. Asking the Legislature to okeh the Board's request was regarded as a mere matter of form. It la the first time In Ossining ’ s lihilory that such a requeat. passed without opposition by both legislative houses, has been vetoed. Ex-Governor Smith once said he would re ­ fuse to sign auch blUa. on the ground they ware so trivial as not to warrant his atten ­ tion. Had he not signed, they would have automatically become law. It la a strong Indictment of Governor Roose ­ velt ’ s strong partisan feelings, that he should Interfere with home-rule In Ossining to the extent of vetoing a harmless, necessary meas ­ ure that would have Increased the Income of village employees less than a dollar a day. — Ossining Cltlzen-SentlneL A man found sleeping In a The railroad car In the freight yards Railroad was sentenced to three month* Vagrants In the Westchester County Penl- % tentiary. when he was arraigned a City Court yesterday.

They over look the outstanding fact that the sale IS the story. All too often we see in otherwise good retail advertisements, state ­ ments like these: \Reduction sale, because we must have more room, ” “ Special sale to clear our stocks, ” “ Sale due to change of buyers, ” “ Re­ arrangement of fixtures sale, ” etc. Reduction sales and special sales come in EVERY retail business, and they are very GOOD THINGS. They don ’ t need explanation; they need enthu ­ siastic announcement. Why'apologize for some ­ thing that is perfectly natuhal and is EXPECT­ ED ? Hanging a lot of explanations on to an ad ­ vertisement makes it look as if there was some ­ thing WRONG. What if you do need more room ? That is no concern of customers. Why say you are clearing your stocks ? That is a trade expres ­ sion; it is not the language in which {o talk to your customers. W ’ hat if you have changed buy­ ers ? You don ’ t have to tell about it Keep your own counsel about the INTERIOR CONCERNS of your business. The only NEWS you have for your customers is that you are going to sell some GOOD MERCHANDISE at leas than regular prices — and THAT IS NEWS. Write it down and put it in the-newspaper in good display type that you have some goods on hand that you have reduced the prices of, because you intend to sell them RIGHT AWAY. Then go ahead and tell the story of the goods themselves — not how you got them but the story of their merits. This idea that the people want to read, a lot of reasons for sales is WRONG.
