By Most subway and bus riders have been aware of the Transit Authority's contest outlined on amusing car-cards for the past four months.

Purpose of the contest was to publicize efforts to encourage good manners among riders, and the cards invited the public to submit apt names for a variety of offenders pictured as animals in the cartoons. The contest, in which 14,000 passengers participated, is now ended, and, according to the Transit Authority, four new words may be added to the English language as a result. The winning titles are "Litter Critter" (littering subway cars, buses or platforms); "Jumboob" (doorway blocker); "Seat Cheetah" (passenger who beats an old lady to a seat offered her by a polite male rider) and "Hitting Bull" (one who jostles and pushes his way into a line of waiting passengers.) Some of the runners-up were as amusing and apropos as the winners. The nearest Bay Ridge came to a prize was the entry by Mrs. Rose Rosenbluth, 4520 12th Her suggestion, "'Sitty Slicker" was nosed out by "Seat but was among the finalists selected by the committee.

The three-masted sailing vessel was a noble sight, and made many of us wonder whether the stories of Old Bay Ridge, so beautifully told by Miss Glen, hadbeen causing hallucinations.

Fisher is the son of Mrs. Selma Fisher, now of Massapequa, and the late Theodore Fisher. A conversation with Mrs. Eckhaus at Fort Hamilton Branch, Brooklyn Public Library, brought to light a valuable service which organizations would do well to note for future reference. The library will be glad to provide a display of material related to the program matter of the meeting and also arrange for a ten-minute talk to the group about the materials on the subject of the meeting.

On two occasions during the last two weeks I was present at meetings in the library. For the Bay Ridge Community Council's meeting, Mrs. Eckhaus had arranged a table of excellent material on various aspects of the community; books on Civil Defense, fallout and various phases of nuclear development accompanied the Town Hall Meeting of the Bay Ridge Forum on May 3, when the subject was "Civil Defense Logical or Illogical?" Mrs. Eckhaus stressed the library's willingness to send the materials and a speaker to any. location in the area if given sufficient prior notice; at least one week before the meeting is suggested as the minimum time to permit preparation.

In addition to this generous offer, the library is willing to cooperate with organizations by compiling reading lists on program topics, and setting aside a study material for those who wish to do research on a particular subject.
