ARCADE. N. Y. TRI- A > ANGLES • k. •'aul F. Dorris Because of the absence _ on vacation of Paul F. Dorris, our editor, publisher and Tri-Angles columnist, this space will be taken up for the next few weeks with Lenten messages. The first in the terics winch follows is written by Rev. John Riley of the First Bap- tst Church of Chaffee. THE PURPOSE OF LENT The real purpose of Lent is that we may know Jesus, that S range Man who went to the Cross for us. As St. Paul put it \That I may know Him, and the power of his ressurection, and fellowship of his suffering.\ It is of first import­ ance to know who this is who went to Calvary's Cross. The New Testament was written pri­ marily to tell what he did, and even more 'mportant, who he was. The various writers, inspired by God, interpret him to us. Here ii si me of the answers to our question - Jesus Is The Savior Of Men. A few weeks ago we were joyously say.ng, \Thou shalt call his name Jesus for he shall save his people from their sins.\ Above all he came to be our Savior. And in this Lent 1959 what does the world and Its peoples need more than a Savior? His whole work was to that end—includ ng his last great sacrifice. He came not to condemn but to save. Jesus Is The Light Of The Wor.d. One of the most common figures used of Jesus was light. And here again he meets our world at its greatest need. We know much in our modern world— ex­ cept in the great things of life. And it is these questions that our Master answers. What life is for, what to do with it, how ,o have strength for it, what happens when this earthly phase is over; Jesus tells us of these things. One came asking \What must I do to have Elernal Life?\ Jesus told him as will tell us. Lent is a good time to Listen to Him. Jesus Is Our Master And Lord. It is intended here to show that he is dominant, has authority, 1 ovui im.ius and hearts. This is what everyone who cla ms to be a follower of His acknowledges. To follow Christ is to do His bid­ ding. The tru h of the matter is \that we are all dominated by some­ thing, either pleasures or riches or earthly ambition or a desire for popularity. It is only a question of what rules over us. But that determines how our 1 ves turn out. If Jesus is Lord we know well what the resul! will be. Christian history and biography tel s clearly how life under Him turns out. To put it simply: lives controlled by the Man of Nazareth have had greatness in them. This Jesus of Lent is also The Christ Of The Magnetic Cross. As He himself said, \And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto me.\ It has been lhat \drawing power\ that has made Chrisitianity through the centuries. The church has many theories about the dea'h of Jesus, but the outstanding fact has been that men, looking upon Jesus on the Cross, have had th- r lives changed. We do not know lust how it happens, but we know it does happen. It has been ful­ fil ed countless times 'n full meas­ ure, \They looked unto Him and were made radiant (jubilant).\ There is much more about Jesus in the New Testament, and it is of infinite value. So le' us use these days of this sacred season to in­ crease our knowledge of him. May it be said of us, in increasing measure as of two of His ureal followers: \They tock knowledPe of them that they had been with Jesus,\ and learned him.

Week February 21-28 Future Farmers of America [\\m^rr\: t*irr>uc>\iit - the nation are scheduling special activities to focus public attention on the work of the organization during National FFA We»k, February 21 in 28. The Arcade Chanter has several plans for this week includ­ ing a \'indow display at the Ar­ cade Men's Shop and the Calf auction which Is shown in a pic ture elsewhere in this papnx. Membership in the FFA Is made un of farm hoys who are students of vocational agriculture in high schools. The organization's acti­ vities are designed primarily to help develop rural leadership and good citizenship and to stimulate the boys to better achievement in their study and work towards suc­ cessful establishment in farming. Officers of the local chapter are Lloyd Butler, President; Kenneth Barber, Vice President; Daniel Boldt, Secretary; Donald Vacinek, Treasurer; Ernest Jirak, Sentinel; Mrrton Benstead, Keporter. The Advisor of the group is Mr. Robert Warner, Vocational Agriculture Instructor at Arcade Central School. Future Farmers choose the -week of George Washington's birthday each year for the observance of National FFA Week. Although us­ ually recognized as a Revolution­ ary War General and our first president, Washington's first love was the farm he called Mount Vernon. There, he was one of the first in the nation to practice con­ tour planting, crop rotation, fer­ tilization and other soil conserva­ tion and improvement methods. It was more than a century after his death before general use was made of many of the sound agri­ cultural practices that he advo­ cated. ARCADE MUSIC BOOSTER CLUB ENJOYS ELEMENTARY CHORUS CONCERT The Music Booster Club of Ar­ cade Central School enjoyed a concert given by the fifth and sixth grade chorus February 12 under the direction of Miss Fox. The soloists, Dianne Harrison, Lynda Brass and Terry Wells gave excellent performances. After the meeting refreshments were served t' Mrs. Lucille Drake and her committee. At an executive Board Meeting held Monday, February 9 of the Music Booster's plans were made by the Chorus and Band to hold a baked goods sa.e. Watch for de­ tails in a future issue of this paper Daytona Beac' February 15, 1959 Mr. Paul F. Dorris, Editor The Arcade Herald Arcade, N. Y. Dear Sir: With reference to the published letter from Village Trustee Robert White, your comment thereon ii last week's Tri-Angles column ' and to the three items in the elec trie department to which reference was made. This letter coming from one •vith 10 months service behind him on the Village Board may iook quite authentic. However if at any time during those months ( he felt the Board was pursuing ) a wrong policy, why has he never brought it up in Board meeting for discussion? I just can't let the implications in this letter, that I am or have been indifferent to the welfare of the taxpayer, go unchallenged. As to electric transfers. The only expense item, other than op­ eration and maintenance, which .he Public Service Commission ap­ proves, is an item which it terms in uou ci taxes.\ Tnis means that we are allowed to earn and pay into the general fund a sun-, equal to that which a private elec­ tric utility, serving the Village would pay in taxes. The formul to arrive at the figure for our use, is the application, in any giv­ en year, of the Village tax rate tc the fully depreciated value of oui municipal electric installation within the Village. Your Board ias leaned to the generous side whenever it could in figuring this amount. Now let's examine the \why\ of the three items to which ref­ erence has been made. 1 Sub-station. This installation is a vital necessity in the opera- (Continued on Page 7) Graduates From U. S. Naval Pre-Flighl School Ircade Central School 3oard Comments In this issue of the Arcade Her- ild there appears an article over the signature of our Assemblyman, larold Peet. This article is not ntended to be provocative or ar- umentatlve as we read it, but is designed rather to cause people to think soberly of the Imnact of ;tate financial support in Wyom­ ing County, and the possible impairment of needed services if .ta^e support is significantly dim­ inished, or even held at the pre­ sent level. The article states that mandated increased state aid to Wycming County in the year ahead wculd be $425 000 and t at 75% of this amount would be for schools. This school aid is esti­ mated to be about $56,000 per county central school. The article does not point out that this \man­ dated increased state aid\ to school districts of this county is in effect not increased state aid, ex­ cept as it provides for additional aid to the districts having an In­ creased number of pupils. In the main, the aid referred to simply provides the same state aid for next year which each school dis­ trict is receiving this year. The Governor's budget for pub­ lic schools provides that there will be no loss in state support, but it does not provide for increased mandated, and desirable salary increase in pupil enrollment, or increased curricular offerings to meet the insistent demand for more mathematics, science and xoreign languages. Unless state support is provided, beyond the amount for public chools in the Governor's budget, increased cost of education will place an additional burden on al­ ready heavily taxed local real estate. The alternative could well be curtailed transportation, cafeteria services and curricular offerings It is to be hoped that those who represent us in Albany will not only support the education portion f the budget as presented by the Governor, but will also strongly support those education bills spon­ sored by the New York State School Boards Association. To Graduate From University of Buffalo Robert Zlmmer Robert Zimmer, son of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Zimmer of Arcade, will graduate from the University of Buffalo School of Business Ad- m nistration with a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Kleinhan's Muisc Hall Monday, February 23.

JOSEPH BSASKY Word has been received from the U. S. Naval School, Pre-Flight, U. S. Naval Air Sta'lon of Pensa- cola, Fla., that Joseph Brasky, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Brasky of Arcade, has graduated from the school.

A Victory for the Tungsten Lamps. Halls, Churches, Business Places and Residences Gave Out A Blaze of Light.\ Two paragraphs from the story are as follows: The lights were turn- in the streets at 7 o'clock, and such a transformation as they made is rarely given mortal man to sec, and it was the opinion of our visitors from the city that we had the best lighted town in West­ ern New York, and, as Western New York towns are probably as well lighted as any in the coun­ try, we have no doubt but that we have the best lighted village in the United States. C. J. Wnite's hardware store was also an object of general ob­ servation and favorable comments. He had his lignts all trimmed and ournlng and it certainly looked like a new store. Trustee R. E. White Further Explains Letter To Editor About Village Affairs Arcade, N Y February 16, 1959 Dear Editor: There seems to be a great deal of confusion as to who wrote what in last week's Tri-Angles, so in an effcrt to clear up this question I wculd like to repeat my letter in full. The letter in full is as fol- .ows: \I am all In favor of keeping •ir rec rdi strai? it as y u SUJ tested in last week's Tri-Angles, but lets go all the way and ex­ plain the entire operation. It has become increasingly eas­ ier to say \the Electric Department paid fcr this and it didn't cost the taxpayer anything.\ Now lets explain to the taxpayers how the surplus cf the Electric Depart­ ment is transferred in lieu of tax­ is and the greater the surplus the lower the tax rate. It now is obvious that one way or another, the taxpayer is footing the bill. There is far too much deceit iracaced cn the taxpayer in all levels of government today so lets do our part to give them the true itcry at home.\ I wrote this letter in protest to your statement that the new street .ights and the new village offices did not cost the taxpayers a dime, t had no idea that it would be published or I would have elabor­ ated m order to make my point clear. in the past four years the Vil­ lage of Arcade has invested $9,- .269.52 in new offices fcr the meter division, the Superintendent of Public Works, tne Mayor and tn- Board cf Trustees, and all the bills are not in yet. 1 am not going to debate tne necessity for tuese out I make the point that here is over two thousand dollars per year tnai was not transferred in lieu of iaxes and was indirectly spent by the taxpayers. on.mued on page 7) Arcade Central School Announces Regents Scholarship Winners It has been announced that there were four winners of Reg­ ents Academic Scholarships at Ar­ cade Central School.
