.TUESDAY. AUGUST 8. 1988 ai.YTETEVILLE. (ARK.) COUTtffiH NKWS PAGE THREE Neighbors Voted Against President But Proud of Summer White House Vacation Days for Roosevelt BY rAUL HABRISON KEA Service Writer •HYDE PARK, N. Y.—Tills vil- l*»e, the neighboring city of Poush pate—and in fact Uie w:vji' tounty of Dutchess-are pretty sor ry now that they didn't vote for JYanklln D. Roosevelt for. President. It's sort of embarrassing to play host to a man who lias trl iimphantly overridden your opposi tiori at the polls.' ' However, tne- two towns are doing their colorful best to make Amends witlvflaps and bunting, and they hope tliat the neighbcrhoo? boy 'who made good will drop around sometimes and say nowdy. He lias already fcald'"Bully!" *^V* It wlien a committee of greet «rs told him that business is looking ft.tofbetter hereabout. ) • KaMinf (be Local Rrceptlou 1 /The Roosevelt Home Club has i gone into action-to provide same ] tort of local reception lor him. This Is an appreciative group (strictly con-partisan, they'll assure you! which has been welcoming him home occasionally ever since he went to tlie exe'cutive mansion in Albany. Harold Clay, a young Poufhkeepsie bank teller, is the club's chairman on arrangements, but• hasn't been able to arrange anything yet because the President wants-to stay home for awhile. Everyone Is hopeful, though of the influent* of Moses Smith, the club's 'president. Smith-happens to t?e the manager of tlie two farms owned by Mr. Roosevelt. Among other people of prominence 'in the local nev deal are no less than, three "original discover- •tiy-ot the'Chief Executive's po- • Ii' ,1 talents. These are former Mayor John K. Hague of Pough. keepsie, .Richard cwinell, former Congressman, and Edward E. Perkins, 'now treasurer of the State pemocraljc. Committee. Stories are current that one or another of | tho* picked Franklin Roosevelt for the State Senate more than 20 years a-go-^alter another man they naxi counted on chose not to run. When the youthful Uutchess county aristocrat won the nomination, - no one was more surprised than Franklin Roosevelt : himself. AfWr heeding the suggestions of M| few canny -pljl^poUUciaiu..that iJU leave : hLs *pmts,7cine and ravn- cblored glows 1 at home, the young- .st*.-. went out and mopped up his Republican/opposition • with a tidy that's how neighbors know Frunkll The E«Jitor'i Letter Box Hie if IVlllihl t'<litm-:> iViv \Milkhn; down toilny Ai.fl vrn an ' 1 Ml'ill. lH:i:il you' u I- Olil , 11..1. , vvi-rr Mi:pi)M'il, SO J':iv And (his linn- lu- cay.

' ' - • '. Prom! the venerable John L [ Mylod, the country's official . historian, . comes a yarn p.bput how Franklin Roosevelt happens to be [ a country gentleman of cnly fairly modest means instead of a rich tycoon of New York City real estate. Back in the 1820's, Dr, Isaac Roosevelt, grandfather of the present . President, owned a farm of more than 150 acnes on Manhat- i tan" Island.- He never was fond of [.the place, though, because he fear- the town might grow In thai and destroy his cherished ey: Besides, gay young blades Uielr girls already were begin- V vit\t to drive up that way to hole I no 1 */ picnics. So he sold ' it, foi | $IM,000, and bought an estate far t up (he Hudson. The first farm, by the way. Included most of the ref gldfi wliith is Fifth, Madison I Park Avenues i n the ritzy Fif- Bie OU Homestead James A. Roosevelt, cus« - son . of r Dr. Is^ac, inherited the old home- I ttead, sold it after the house I, btrned down, and bought the i present 5W-acre estate In 1867. The tttyn name of it is "Springwocd" ' —»nd not "Kriun Elbow" or "Crom : Htew,' as ti-.e o!d maps Identify 1 the n*«rby bend In the river. j WhettYer he goes around here, • thr President technically .is only First Lady and Her partners also' are in .the filling station business | in a small way. On their nomadic motoring vacations together, t h e women developed some definite notions about how roadside stands I should be built and conducted. So | they have installed a model one on I th« paved highway ear their factory — a substantial little place j with gay awnings and umbrella- shaded outdoor tables. In-side is a small lounge, v-lth Val Kill re-1 productions of Early American furniture, a fireplace, rag rugs and old prints. • The . place is managed by Miss Nellie Johantsen, who lives on a neighboring farm. She also turns \ out cakes and cookies and home- ] made ice-cream for the Presiden- ; tial"'pfcri&£. Mr. Roosevelt "-always i used to askSfor cream, i Ehe.wbnrSded, ''bui now he lias sot j to be careful what he eats. I intike ' him vanilla only." , Most of the Roosevells are j churchly people, and the 'Dowager Mrs. James takes credit, for that. To three generations of them, now, she has told Bible stories an-. 1 .'oa;! % from the New Testament. Son- Franklin,. grandson James and great-granddaughter Sislie have been her star pupils. The President is senior-warden o fthc Episcopalian vestry, and promised to preside over the regular August vestry meeting. James is one c[ the vestrymen too. And Sistie. who has learned 'the prayers and hymns, now is permitted to attend church with her great-grancl- niother. j St. James Church near here is a beautiful eld Gothic structure built in 1811, and is called "the Westminster Abbey of the Hudson." The Rcosevelts sit in the center line of pews, third from the front. The Rev. Frank R. Wilscn never mentions the President in his sermons. When Dr. Wilson was ill last December, and it was feared he wouldn't bs able to preach, Mr. Roosevelt telephoned from Albany offering to come down himself and conduct the service as a lay reader. The minister was able to pr;ae'i. though, somewhat to his cv.n 'Jir- apppintment. • . The coming of the President has brought employment. to a c'oxan men, hired with an emergency relief fund obtained from the government to improve a landing field a few miles from here. Originally I an emergency port on the N:w. York-Montreal route, it has been j made safe for official planes, its, rough spots smoothed out. nnd a road built to the main highway.
