Schenectady, is pleasing to all wh o were Interested in th e famous case A yea r or more ag o th e oth^r figure in th& kidnapping. Harry Fairbanks, was taken into custody an d i s now serving a long sentence for hi s act. The arres t no w of Crandall cleans u p the ease. The kidnapping wa s on e of th e most discussed subjects a t th e time. It aroused th e sympathy of all and northern Ne w York figured promin - ently an d conspicuously in th e matter by reason of th e fact tha t it wa s t o , Theresa, Jefferson county, that th e • kidnappers fled with the boy i n hope, there of obtaining th e ransom which \ aas bee-i heard 'ijOV ellleii'. i Northern New York !»>•- .pm*'Ut L.-autie did n.'i.h good. .11 lay, but a few years ag o enthusi- asm b. gau to 'die down an d th e or- ganization went on th e retired Ii*t The New York Development Associa- tion, Inc., is supposed to take th e plate of th e old organization lt> officers ar e doing all the.y ca n to carry ou t th e aims an d purposes of the association but unless suppor t i- shown it ma y be impossible to carry out th e program . Massena is no t alone in needing some stirring up. There ar e other northern .Ww York communities in which more, community spirit an d less individualism is needed. W e cannot expect to develop this great North Countr y unless we ge t busy and do something. That does not mean joining a n organizatio n an d then forgetting about it. It means concerted effort on th e part of every- body to place northern Ne w York on th e map . It means forgetting jealousies between communities an d more of a spirit of brotherhood. Are we going to be content with drifting on ou r oars an d dreaming about the. future? Ar e we going to let th e power developmen t and othe r projects drift along for years without turning ou r hands to give them a n impetus? There is a great future ahead of the North Country, bu t it is going t o be a long tinie coming unless it s residents show more interest in it s developmen t than they ar e showin g today.

THE COUNTY FAIR ' Lette r to Ne w York Herald-Tri - bune: Your editorial \Once Upon a County Fair Time\ in yesterday's is-, sue, following closely upon th e adop-• tion lart week by th e National Re - publican Club of a resolution oi ap - preciation of th e value of th e county an d town tai^B in th e present educa- tion and ro<*reation of the dwellers in the smalle r town an d rura l com- munities , is most timely. While to-day th e farmer, the rural dweller, bear s no resemblance to hi s predecessor of early days a s depicted on th e stag e in that prehistoric com- petitor of \Abie' s Irish Rose,\ t o wit, \The County Fair,\ o r a s repre - sented by Denman Thompson in \The Ol d Homestead,\ thi s is no t to be wondered a t when w e remem-, ber that a farmer's son is in the' White House and that hi s brethren throughout th e land occupy places of trust and importance an d have edu- cation an d culture comparable to. those of hi s city cousins. i However, the county fair is still a.': factor in our stat e life and to-day ha * increased needs an d increasing opportunitie s for service in it s field of education, recreation and social- > istation. In ou r ow n vicinity during Labo r Da y week in Rockland County, ' when th e county fair wa s on , it was' difficult to find an y one except at the fair, at Orangeburg, where high and low, rich an d poor, farmer an d arti- san, white collar an d blue shirt, al l foregathere d a t a most creditable ex-, hibition. And so , to o at Mineola. a t I the most excellent Queens-Nassau County Fair \every one\ was there. 1 When we go farthe r afield into th e real rura l districts we find county and town fairs still playing their part a s th^ major attraction s of th e year, helpin g t o reconcile th e new- generation of rural worke r to his ; more or less humble lot, yet in th e sight of God and man probably the most important of all to th e com- munity , adding to his interest anj his pleasure s and stimulatin g hi s la- bors. The state of Ne w York, too, ha s continuously recognized th e value of county fairs by providing a part of the prizes an d reward s for excel- lence in product s exhibited, an d with the decreased purchasing power of the dollar an d the increasing oppor- tunity for serv: e it wii; no doubt continu e its interest an d support.
