Makes A Hobby Out Of Old Cars
Bob Stubenrauch of North Mas-sapequa
is a photographer by
trade, but he's also making quite
a career out of his interest in
old cars. He believes old cars
are fun. In fact, the book he was
working on for the past two years,
and which was scheduled to be
published on September 18, is
called " The Fun of Old Cars."
Associated with Grumman Aircraft
Engineering Corporation of
Bethpage in the Documentation
Photography department, Stubenrauch
resides at 103 North Richmond
Avenue with his wife, Leah,
and two sons, David, 10, and
The publisher, Dodd, Mead,
has this to say about 300 photographs
and 30,000 words in " The
Fun of Old Cars;" " This book,
which explores in text and pictures
the hobby of old car collecting,
has striking profies of
26 automobiles, photographed in
unusual detail and depth.
" The selection includes seldom
seen gems like the Case,
the Jackson, and the Kelsey Mo-torette,
as well as magnificent
examples of the Dusenberg, the
Cord, and the Lincoln Continental.
Among the special interest
cars are a 1937 Buick
Roadmaster convertible sedan,
and a 1949 Chryslter Town and
County convertible. The many
devotees of the Ford will be
especially interested in the 1920
Model T sdean, a 1929 Model A
station wagon, and a 1935 V- 8
phaeton. . . Problems in finding,
buying and restoring cars are
examined with emphasis on practical
suggestions for the novice.
The appendix of the book contains
a listing of automobile clubs.

Public Library building got
underway last week wkh the dem-olition
of two old structures on
the site. Formal groundbreaking
ceremonies are expected to

The 19,800 square foot building,
located on Hicksville Road
opposite the present rented quarters,

will have a book capacity of
100,000 volumes and provide
reference seating for 125 patrons.
At present, the library is located
in two rented stores and

Noting mat at the present time
the library is struggling with the
most serious space problem of
its nearly four years of existence,
Library Director Alfred L.
Freund said, " We now have to
shelve books in the basement to
accommodate the influx of new
materials needed in the new
building. If the new library opened
next week, it wouldn't be too
soon for us."
Board To Consider Bus
Contract Thursday Night
The Massapequa Board of Education
will decide on Thursday
night on any action to take regarding
the school bus company,

000 students were without transportation

His interest in old cars is
still continuing to grow, and next
year he plans to buy one of his
own. He has had rides in all the
cars portrayed in " The Fun of
Old Cars" ( title supplied by his
wife), and of course is now looking
forward to driving his own.
It's not likely to be a 1929 Hispano
Suiza, a French are with power
brakes. He had his introdjction
to that car and says it's pretty
hair- raising to ride in.
" Ah," he remarked, ' those
grand old cars of yesteryear -
they don't make them like that

Independent Voters Party
had given the bus company one
week to hire new bus drivers.
Louis Bartell of the bus company,
told the OBSERVER that
his firm has fulfilled its part
of the agreement. On Thursday
morning, he stated, 67 buses
were on the road with three
standby drivers. A school
spokesman said that all runs
were covered, but the buses were
The bus company is presently
hiring additional bus drivers.
The Independent Voters Party
has nominated Ralph J. Marino
as its candidate for Oyster Bay
The independent group, in little
more than one week's time, collected
2,533 signatures on petitions
to place Marino on the ballot
as their standard barer. Republican
Marino, the town board
majority leader, had previously
received the Liberal Party endorsement
and will therefore appear
on three lines this November
Marino said that he was very
gratified that the new organization
had been able, in such a
short period of time, to gather
over 1,000 more signatures man
necessary to meet the legal qualifications
for securing a place on
the ballot. He noted that a rival
group, Tobay Independent Party,
which is supporting his opponent,
had managed to get only about
2,000 more signatures, even
though they had been circulating
petitions for several months.
The Independent Voters Party,
made up of citizens of all political
beliefs, sought the third line for
Marino so that people who want to
vote for him could do so without
voting for any party label at the
same time, chairman Irving Cohen
