It was . an all day affair. E. V. Baldwin, 35 Holly ave., Mlneola, remem-bers having, witnessed the race with an older brother and a neighbor. It was on a hot day, he thinks in August, but he has r_ forgotten the other details. 'Perhaps some early Preeporter can recall the exact date, fc>r Mr. Baldwin, who desires the information for a story he has in mind. If there is such a person we would appreciate It If he would write to The Leader, P. O. Box 285, Preeport, N. Y., so we can relay the information to Mr. Baldwin. According to Mr, Baldwin the race, was the first of its kind to be held here, though others werq. conducted later in Hemp-stead.

This is attested by the scores of letters from organizations and persons in ali walks of lifcv expressing keen regret at their having been transferred from the Pennsylvania, city. Both Major Newton and his wife are the second generation in Sal-vation Army life. He was born in London, England, 49 years ago and when he was a young lad, his widowed mother, a staff captainl came to America and they settlfed in Utica. Mrs. Newton is the daughter of Adjutant and Mrs. Walter Yager, who were transferre^ from Memphis, Tenn., to Utica When the present Major was l4.

The Freeport Boatman's As-soakUion-- hna endorsed the senti-ments contained Jn the petition. Harry J, Berkowitz, 215 North Ocean ave., owner of the Dotty B, docjced in Woodcleft Canal, started the .movement. The petition which will be presented to the Board at its meeting on Friday night, July 19. reads: We the undersigned respectfully petition the Village Board to have enforced the Village ordinance with regard to the speeding of boats in the Village waterways. "The. speeding by thoughtless boat operators in our canals is a serious menance to life and prop-erty. Considerable damage has been done tcr other boats berthed at their docks and the practice will continue to constitute a peril to persons ~. aboard when a boat Is" suddenly rocked by* some careless speeder^.-backwash. -] • _^ "TheTreats docked .in,—Freeport waters today represent an invest-ment of millions of dollars and should be entitled to some* protec-tion from the Village. We would suggest that the Village acquire a suitable patrol boat so that, the ordinances governing our Municipal waterways may be properly, and strictly enforced." In Feipsori Gaie Do Not Know Method He Will Use In Conduct of Inquiry Both county and' -village- officials today were awaiting the first move by Lawrence S. Greeabaum, of ' Mamaroneck, who has been ap-. pointed by Gov. Thomas E, Dewey to conduct an inquiry into all the circumstances surrounding the fatal shooting of Charles and Alphonce Ferguson, Roosevelt Negroes, by—— Patrolman Joseph Roraeika early-in February. District Attorney James N. Gehrig, at whose request ,Mr. ~. Greenbaum, chairman of Uie Board of Social Welfare of the State ot New York was named, said he could not predict the method the governor's appointee would pursue in the course of his inquiry. Village Counsel Martin H. Wey-rauch expressed the opinion Mr. Greenbaum was mainly interested in the proceedings of the Grand Jury which refused to Indict Patrolman Romeika, and the vil-lage would play but a small part in the inquiry which it is expected will be conducted In Mineola.
