The library Is steadily adding books and making magazines and more pamphlet materials available. A recent book that is new and a sort of combination dictionary and encyclopedia is Lingeman's Drugs from A to Z. For example under A, he brings together material on amphetamines, acid head, adrenochrome, alley and other words beginning with A that relate to narcotics. Under Z he defines such terms as zap, zigzag, ZNA and zonked. Some words such as heroin are given several pages. Other books include Blakeslee's WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DRUGS: Hyde's THE MIND DRUGS; Houser's DRUGS; Schur's CRIMES WITHOUT VICTIMS; Brown's THE HIPPIES; and Way's THE DRUG SCENE. Land's WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT DRUGS AND YOUR CHILD describes measures parents can take. Marihuana is covered in such books as POT by Rosevear; MARIJUANA by Bloomquist and Smith's THE NEW SOCIAL DRUG. LSD and other psychedelic drugs are treated in Aaron's PSYCHEDELICS as well as in other general drug books; also inLouria's THE DRUG SCENE and Braden's THE PRIVATE SEA. Treatment for drug addiction is discussed in such books as Endore's SYNANON; Jeffee's narcotics; AN AMERICAN PLAN and Brenner's DRUGS AND YOUTH. READ REVIEW SIUN •••• •• :*• ••* ?••••• It's an age of speed, electronics and instant communications. And that description suits our new Message Center to a T.' Message Center is a brand new, electronically- controlled display that relays messages in instant succession by using patterns of electric light to form large, easy-to-read letters and numerals. On it, you'll be able to read news of what's happening in the community and other items of interest, along with an occasional word about our many services (which we also think are as modern as you can get!). So keep your eye on us and our new Message Center. It's a real "sign" of the times! BROAD VIE W- WESTCHESTER STATE BANK 1500 Roosevelt Road Broadview.

Are you happy with the general appearance of your grounds? Do the plants in the landscape serve their intended /unction of flattering the architectural style of your house, screening your outdoor living areas for privacy, or providing color and beauty the year around? The perfect landscape design is a rarity. Plants are not static. They change their shapes, outgrow their alloted space, get sick and die. Yet, It's surprising how little it takes sometimes to pull the total picture together, with the replacement of wornout plants here or an added landscape feature there. No two families have identical garden and outdoor living needs. Properties may be in varying stages of development. Some home owners are starting from scratch - new hose, bare ground with a minimum of landscape planting etc. At the other extreme are those who have established plantings that need only redesigning to add outdoor living space or updating with the better, more functional plants which nurseries can supply. If you are happy with the landscape of your present garden, keep it as it is. If you are not, now is the perfecttime to do some of your changing around. Re designing is fun, a challenge and well worth considering. Fall is the most Ideal timo to transfer plants, lay patios, install pools but most of all, plant some of those nice flowering bushes or trees that you always wanted. Fall is a beautiful time if you want it to be. Yes, a little work, a little effort, bat, oh It will be appreciated next spring. This is the year to focus on a landscape project, big or little, and see it through. You will derive much inspiration so "THINK BIG". October Hints: - Winter mulch before the ground freezes. Put chicken wire fences around young, newly planted trees. Water evergreens; roots need moisture for the winter months. Roses need to be hilled with soil about the bases of the roots before the ground freezes. Don't delay any longer to bring in your tender plants. After chrysanthemums are killed by frost, cut them down in preparation for winter. Have a little fun in life. Try gardening! This is a typical portfolio ;>f ow:i landscape designing if M. a.id Mrs. William rriedli.., Oil Heloit Avo. This curved flagsto-i.' patio is not jus', pretty in design but lias ample room as a recreation area. A maple tree, surrounded by washed stones in the green area, gives a quiet contrast to the coleus, nicotiiuis in- otherwise called (o')acc(j plant, that beautify the garage. This is a perfect example what a little hard work proves to be. A waterfall, a pond for goldfish and plants and dirtpockets left for som* at those flowering plants like allyssums, tritoma, African for-get-me-nots. The big rocks here and there give also perfect contrast to mugho pines and pfltzers. Congratulations to Carol and Bill Frledle. You have won the "Special Gardening Ribbon" tor your well designed garden. '""
