FAOK '^^A^ATIJcWNEWS^cb^^H^^^^K^,^ Fubllrtwl Every Evening (KxcoptSumlny) by THE NAUOATUCK NEWS CORPORATION NACOATUCK, CONN. mrOQLPH M. HSNNICK, President and 2228 nnd 222t^An~Dcpartn*,nt« •Intend' a- Voconcl claim matter nt tno post office. In NauKixtuck, Conn, SUBSCRIPTION. RATES . payable In Advance Tho American Newspaper Publlsho™ AII» « • THimSDAY ,7tINK 13, Vote Tomorrow The question to l><; decided by Nmiga- ttick voters on Friday transcends piivty a,,,.! political linen. It's a simple question of InisinusH tincl economics. Shall the bor- oiiKli increase from $2,500 to $3,150 the Kjilm-y of its Win-don'/ Till': NEWS has had its suy previously on this subject. Our only criticism is that the General Assembly passed a bill calling for n salary less than $4,000. There wi'lj be "no" votes cast Friday. Tho ret'orbndiim would bo a disappointment if sill votes were nlike and affirmative, for nothing contributes more to a healthy state of community affairs than differences of opinion, provided criticisms are constructive! "'id personalities avoided. Let the "no" votes bo those of our people.- who feel that the office of Wardon, its respons!billies !ind_ obligations warrant no more compensation than tho present $2,500 allowed. H, after comparing that figure with his own annual earnings (and cogitating' his stniA^'e to make them meet the inflated cost oMivini;'), the voter is convinced that the increase is unreasonable, then it is his responsibility as a voter t'o east a illative vote. Lot the freeman who would vote "no" without thought to the merit of the proposal, but only because he is opposed politically or personally to the incumbent, remember that the man who succeeded in gaining favorable action on the measure in the i'iniil hours of the recent special session of the (ienornl Assembly, Ims been and is one of tho strongest ciitics, politically, of tho mini it will •'benefit. That, in itself, is a strong argument in I'nvor of (lie salary increase, Kveti stronger, however, is a comparison of the warden's salary with that of other borough employes, and the fact tlint last year's dollar falls far short of today's in every market. All parlies might dwell on thai thought in looking ahead to future i|lcc- tions and potential candidates, Indications are that the vote will be light. Those who favor the proposal will be more prone to stay away from the polls than those who are opposed. .It is ..t-h ere fore with an interest in the adoption of the pay raise—not for the sake of politics or personalities—bid. for tho betterment of the office and the prestige of the borough that we urge: Vote! Tomorrow Ig Flag Day Throughout the length and breadth of the United {Stales of America tomorrow t.lie national emblem will be paid special and appropriate.' tributes of respect. Pledges of allegiance to the Flag and all that it symboli/es will be renewed by millions of "people all overt the land and wherever else i 'its beautiful colors are flung to the breezy. . .It is well lluil a day has been set apart for honoring tho Flng.'.>!' our country. ."It is important that nil who enjoy the privileges and liberties granted by the Constitution shall ever remain fully aware of the principles for which A.mcrica stands. Tt is likewise important that the 1 , whole world shall be kept, mindful of. the fact that Americans are determined those principles shall be preserveel and defended at any cost. . . Lei us, therefore', display the band- some and inspiring Stars ami Stripes of the "land of tho 1'vco and the Iconic of the brave." And lot us resolve that the. quality of our individual and collective citizenship shall always be .such as to commmul the respect and admiration of all liberty-loving people throughout the universe—a citizenship so strong, unified tuid courageous that no earthly power will over be able to, ,t,car .down our Flag or destroy our beloved nation. When the world is entirely organized, we can' take a crack at the stars. . ^Business •wilV liiiss/j -when Oios'c «'t'ril<cs ro all over, __. »._..• ., .,^ Do Ybii Remember?

Around The Clock BITTER BLOSSOMS The sweet full blossomed flowers Of my neighbor's 'cross the way At last began to bother me I had admired them every day. But I simply couldn't ask her If I might have a few . ; . Wo had quarreled only recently And ehc air was still quite blue. So one dark night a week ago My scissors In my hand I. told my conscience: "Go llo down , And I trespassed on her land. I snipped nt every blossom Tho pale moon put in sight . But suddenly, a growling noise Filled my heart with fright. I clutched my purloined blossoms Then tried to set my course I missed! ! and set my hcnd Instead , Against a tree with all my force. How I made my exit I never really knew I'd torn my dress, cut my head And worse, I lost the flowers too. Next morning after breakfast I viewed my neighbor's land Imagine then, my shocked surprise When she appeared and waved her hand. She said: "Isn't this perfect weather? And my flowers!—They're gorgeous today Let's forget our silly quarrel- Come over and pick a bouquet!

The eighth grade of St. Francis Parochial school has, unbeknownst to us, been giving us minor competition. Their competition being in the form of a class newspaper that in the excellence of its form and copy certainly rates an honorable mention The paper which is written by students of the school has sections enclosed in it that certainly cover little less than that of an actual paper. The members of the paper staff arc as follows: Editor-in-chief, James Gunnotid; class events editor, Barbara McCarthy; sports editor for boys, Stephen .O'Neill; sports editor for girls, Kegina Sullivan; and the social editor, Carol Bradshaw. On the business board of the staff, Henry McCarthy is the business manager, and "Ruth 'Wood, is his assistant. Helen Schiller and James Gunnoud comprise the clerical staff The name of tin: paper is the Eighth Grade Currier and it has as its motto, "Stay in the path of our Lord." Jim Casey, 24 Goodyear avenue, performed the golfers' feat of feats last weekend when he made a hole-in-one at the Waterbury Municipal Golf Course. He made this perfect,shot on the fifth hole of : the Waterbury course, and what's more Jim has witnesses, to prove his feat. We believe that Jim is the first man in this area, who has accomplished an "ace" on either the Waterbury course, or our own ABA 'Country Club course. George Kennedy, Pat Regan, Paul Gallagher "and Jim Moore were unbeatable the other.night in a setback tournament with other" teams of Ojcda .Council, Knights of Columbus Joe Knowlcs, Anthony Chiulli and Jim Kennedy took the shellacking of their 1 careers.
