To the Editor: TRIBUTE TO JOE McDONALD Recently having received the most saddening news of the death of Patrolman Joseph McDonald, 1 was prompted to recall all that ''Joe'' had meant to his community and her citizens. School, college, and now the service have rendered me one of Rye's part-time residents during the past eight years, yet near or far from the borders of Rye. 1 have always maintained the warmest hometown attachment to the city. Home may be wherever family and friends find themselves, but a hometown claims broader, though certainly as sincere, affiliations; everyone's hometown possesses and boasts of its own personal and warm character. Whether riding his motorcycle, helping children on their way to school, or conducting Red Cross instruction for adults, Joe was always an appreciated part of the character of Rye. His smile, his friendship, and his spirit became essential to the life of his community. To any who have called Rye their hometown, the next journey down Purchase Street will seem lonely. William L.
