sociation For Responsible Libraries.
This organization has as its
objective the unbiased review of
library policies for the benefit
of the entire community, not
. just a minority clique.
. Because I can not uphold the
purpose of the Friends Of The
Farmingdale Library, which is
to support the Library Board,
I ask you to cancel my membership.
To The Editor:
Carl Gorton has written editorials
and rebuttals to editorials,
letters to the editors of local
newspapers and has even appeared
on television, deploring
what he likes to call " cultural
subversion." The object of his
present concern is a passage
from, a quarterly magazine,
which he calls obscene. Yet on
registration day, in front of Wel-don
F. Howitt Jjr. High School,
Carl Gorton was distributing a r e production
of the very passage he
I had not read this passage nor
had any of my friends until I read
Carl Gorton's pamphlet. None
of my friends' children had read
it either. However, all of them
are now curious to know more
about it. Thanks to the great
number of pamphlets being spread
around the community. There is
a good chance they will be able
to read it.
Carl Gorton is a duly elected
trustee of The Farmingdale Library,
yet he seems to be doing
all he can to draw the attention
of our school children toquestion-able
material by distributing his
pamphlets. I feel Carl Gorton is
not behaving in the best interest
of the community, and certainly
not in the manner we have come to
expect of a duly elected public
As you know, eachyear we conduct
an extensive campaign a-gainst
illegal fireworks. We
deeply appreciate the editorial
support you have given this effort
in the past.
This year we are distributing
literature in the schools of the
county; stores that might conceivably
sell fireworks arc getting
a printed form warning of the violation;
special patrols will augment
our regular force, and we
will be asking for the cooperation
of the communications media.
We thank you again for your
past cooperation and ask thatyou
continue to work with us in urging
residents to consider the danger
and the peace and comfort of
neighbors, and to obey the law.

To The Editor:
We have lived in Farmingdale
for thirteen years and have
watched our town library grow
from a store front to the present
Main Street location and the South
Farmingdale branch* This growth
was due to the hard work and
interest plus constructive thinking
of the library director, Or-rin
Dow and many citizens of
the town who can be proud of
the library they have created.
Boy choir Readies
The Eighth Annual St. Kilian
Choral Concert will be presented

p. m. at die St. Kilian Auditorium,
Farmingdale. The diree performances
of this year's " Galaxy
of Music," will feature the celebrated
St. Kilian Boychoir, as-
The library not only has the
best books being written today
( chosen by professionals) and
the classics of the past but has
many " extras", such as art
groups, a creative writinggroup,
movies, ceramic demonstrations,
etc., which contribute to
the culture of the town's inhabitants
when they avail themselves
of the facilities.
I say, and my family with me,
three cheers for our library.
Let's keep it growing and not
allow anyone to tear it down.

the last time
you didn't bother
When your telephone rin^ s, chances are it's important.
Someone wants to talk to you. So you pick up the receiver. And talk.
Important talk. Small talk. Man talk. Woman talk. It all adds up
to a lot of talk. You'd think it would he expensive. But it isn't.
Because we keep doin^ things to keep your talk cheap.
Things like cross- country calls for a dollar. Things like
an overall decrease in lon^ distance rates since 1940. And things like
more than 40' Vi of the New York State calls you paid
long distance charges lor 10 years ago now heinjj; local calls.
When you can talk about things like these while just about
everything seems to be uoin^ up, that's not had. If talk is cheap,
blame it on the phone company.
