Hinman Charitable Foundation have established a scholarship program at Colgate University for students residing in Madison County and adjacent area. The scholarship program, with funding of up to $10,000 for each of the next fours, is intended to benefit those graduating from the secondary schools of Madison County and from Mt. Markham Central School, Oriskany Falls High School, Otselic Valley Central, Sherburne-Earlville Central and Waterville Central. Hinman Scholars may also be Madison County fesidents who have graduated from two-year colleges and wish to continue their education at Colgate University. Madison County students who attend preparatory schools outside the county, either during their secondary years or for postgraduate study, will also be eligible for the scholarship program. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of need as determined by the university in accordance with the Hinman Foundation's wishes. Selections will be made by the university in conjunction with the foundation trustees, Raymond T. Ryan, Joe Schapiro and Frank O. White. The first four-year scholarships will be awarded in September 1974, and will terminate when each of the original Hinman Scholars receives his bachelor of arts degree or ceases to attend ine university for any reason. The foundation trustees hope to be able to offer scholarships to students entering Colgate in 1975 and succeeding years. Grove W. Hinman, who died in 1961, was a prominent Madison County grower and businessman. His wife, Agnes continued to operate some of their business interests in Madison untii her death in 1970. OSWEGO - Area sports fans have a rare treat in store Tuesday when the Oswego State lacrosse team faces off against the Iroquois Redmen in a box lacrosse game at 7 p.m. at Romney Fieldhouse. Tickets will be available at the gate. Oswego State University College students will be admitted upon presentation of properly validated ID cards. "Box lacrosse is seldom seen on a college campus," noted Dr. John V. Glinski, athletic director. "We've scheduled it for several reasons. Fans hugely enjoyed a box match here a year ago, and I'm certain they'll be delighted by the action again. And box is more than just an athletic event. For the Iroquois, it is a cultural and religious experience which reaffirms their tribal tradi tions." Great Laker Coaches Leo Nolan and John Spring are working with a large squad. Among those players likely to appear in the fray Tuesday are goalies Tim Parry and Andy Wing, and defensemen John Lukiert, Frank Murray, Dave Clark, Dave Joseph, and Eric Fischer. Midfielders are Tom Duran, Ron Humphreys, Brant Davidson, Ken Mancino, Tim Roche, and Cliff Muller. Attacks are Tom Augatt, Jim Burke, Joe Landy, Tom Brown and Gary Schindler. Box lacrosse is a combination of field lacrosse and hockey. In box, teams have hockey alignments with a goalie, two defensemen, and three forwards. Cross-checking, illegal in hockey, is the basic defense maneuver in box lacrosse, however. Oswego, which is a member of the United States Intercollegiate Association, opens its regular lacrosse season with a home <?ame April 6 against Hartwick The complete schedule follows: April 2, Iroquois Red-men; April 6, Hartwick; April 10, Albany; April 13 at RIT; April 17, at St. Lawrence; April 20 at Buffalo; April 24, Eisenhower; April 27 at Army JV. On May 1, Brockport; May 4 at Cortland JV; MayllatGen-eseo, and May 14, Alfred. Oneidan Rites Saturday Art Exhibition By Canadian CLINTON - Paintings by Harold Beament. the Canadian artist who has been a major figure in his country's culture for half a century, will be on display at Hamilton College's Root Art Center beginning The show will open with an 8 to 10 p.m. reception Tuesday at which B3ament will be present. The public is invited to attend. Tlosing date for the exhibition is April 28. Beament, 75, was trained as a lawyer and has served as an officer in the Canadian Navy. He has been widely known as an artist, however, since he was the Canadian fine arts representative to the British Empire Exhibition in 1924." Money Saved ByDPW ONEIDA — At a time when almost all city financial news is discouraging it is refreshing to learn that the mild winter resulted in considerable savings by the Department of Public Works. City Engineer Rober Mayer has related that only about $4,000 of the $25,000 budgeted for cost of labor for snow and ice removal has been used so far this year. in addition, only about $6,000, two-thirds of the amount budgeted, for the purchase of salt has been spent sp far, the engineer noted. He explained that if there is not a heavy snowfall, the city usually just salts and sands, thus accounting for a greater expenditure for salt than for labor. The city official indicated that some of the money in the ice and snow labor budget will probably be spent on street maintenance or for ditching and storm sewer work. The engineer said the DPW has begun its spring work. Last month employes were cutting trees and brush along the old feeder part of the storm sewer system between Walnut and Brook streets. Ditching and cuting has also been done along Tar Creek, off Sconondoa Street. The plows on three of the city trucks have been-removed and these trucks are now being used for the spring assignments. The engineer said that plows could be reinstalled within an hour, to join the two large four-wheel-drive plows which are ready to go to work anytime a spring storm produces a heavy snowfall. Conservation Efforts Cited NORWICH - Cooperation of the legislative bodies and the soil and water conservation districts of the eight participating counties is stressed in a 20-page report in brochure form, made public by the South Central New York Resource Conservation and Development Project. . Marking the end of its seventh" year of existence, the project issued its roundup report to encourage continued interest in the joint effort at cooperation, it was explained by Philip C. Comings, 'chairman of the council, which is the guiding body of the project. The participating counties are Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Madison, Otsego, Tioga and Tompkins. "We think we have proven that joint effort at the local level can help solve regional problems, as well as strictly local or neighborhood problems," Comings added. The report, in a preliminary summary, recorded 84 completed project measures, ranging across the entire eight-county area. During its seven years, the project accepted 262 measures proposed by local agencies and voluntary organizations, of which 34 were con-celed, generally for lack of financial benefits in terms of costs. Measures worked on in 1973 included the Broome Community College erosion control and flood prevention measure; Otselic River fish habitat in-provement; Tompkins County roadbank and municipal seeding; projectwide seeding of similar nature to prevent road-bank erosion and Clark's Creek flood prevention in Chenango County, which is designed to protect the Village of Oxford.
