Getting Low on Material Of Many Things Five Kittens By Thomas E. Murphy Published at 287 Broad Street, Hartford 1, Connecticut Wednesday Morning, October 29, 1932 ItUbliihtd 1764 Tht OUttt Srwtptptr of Conlmuom PuUitaiion in Am met a mixture of black, white, and red, giving a new twist to the old riddle of "what's black, white, and red all over." To the answers, newspapers and embarrassed zebras, must be added calico cats. Dora is a doll. She has all these markings, but in a more subdued way to Dorinda, a super-doll. Dorinda is easily the Marilyn Monroe of the group, while Dora is more the type your mother likes. Rnth nf the pirls acceptable to the city. Under the new Charter such a contract can be awarded only after public bidding. However, the city has every right in asking for bids to set up conditions and limitations that are at least equivalent to those contained in the original offer. It would be the height of folly merely to lease this land to the highest bidder without defining the use to which it is to be put, and even specifying what type of garage is to be constructed on the premises. There is no law that says the contract has to be awarded to G. Fox and Company, But there is every reason to hope that the land will not go to somebody else who will not make such full use of it as this corporation plans to do, or on such generous terms as they offer. Until the bids are asked for, received, and awarded, this project cannot be considered as immediate relief. Indeed, considering the roadblocks that the private parking-lot operators have hitherto thrown in Hie path of parking progress, It Is futile to count your parking lots until they are fully hatched. ill have excellent man- H.6H 1 a level if I I ners, and display no hoyden spirits. They are all well mannered cats and as they are well cared for bv their Everybody Wants to Get Into the Act I bet you didn't know that the day after election, next week, marks the beginning of National Cat Week. I wouldn have known about it myself except that the National Feline Society sent me a lot of stuff, the gist of which is be kind to cats. If they but knew, they were sending coals to Newcastle, for cats are something of which I have plenty. Some weeks ago I reported on the cat who came to dinner, and immediately delivered five kittens. She has been boarding with us, together with her brood, since then. A most attentive mother, she has been, dwelling in the farthermost recesses of a closet, ana emerging only at intervals for nourishment. But now that the kittens are getting brash and playful. Ma is letting them come out for observation. There was some thought at one time of turning the kittens, or part of the group, over to the SPCA. But then we thought if we gave them a chance to get a little bigger there would be a better chance to save their lives through adoption. It speaks well for the pattern of their hereditary background that, in the ensemble, there is practically every color known to cats. Merely for purposes of identification I am appending names to each of them. There are two girls and three boys. The boys we shall call Elmer, George and Percy for their counterparts, Elmer the Great, George Babbit, and Percy Bysshe Shelley. Elmer is a big, rugged coal-black fellow who already has a voice twice as loud as the others. If I were the class prophet giving my forecast for Cats of 1932, I would without equivocation say that Elmer is destined to be the Vaughn Monroe of back fences. He has a power packed line and will go places in the cat world. George Babbit, his smaller brother, is a well proportioned, nicely set up, gray fellow, of good manners and disposition. He doesn't want to set the world on fire, but he's full of good fellowship. Percy Shelly is a poor, scrawny little fellow who never did get his proper quota of food. He is smaller than the others, dark but not black, with tiger markings. Considering the history of the human race you might well conclude that Percy may yet be one of the outstanding cats. He has all the elements to get him an inferiority complex, and this in turn may bring him' high in the cat world. I have half a mind to keep Percy just to see how he turns out. As might be expected the girl cats are far prettier than their brothers. Both are money cats, as they call calico in Maine warranted to bring good fortune to their owners. Their coats are rut innNM McCarthy Speaks Softly It was like a popgun when you had expected a blast from heavy artillery. If Hartford was any sample, the whole nation went expectantly to its radio and TV ets Monday night to hear Senator McCarthy take Stevenson apart. There had been quite a buildup, not least of which was the fact that Senator McCarthy had held his fire until this late date in the campaign. This left the expectation of an expose so devastating that it would aw'mg the election. By comparison the talk Itself Just did not come off. It was a new and mild Senator McCarthy who spoke. In fact the speech contained little that Senator McCarthy had not already said. And most of all, Instead of pinning the expected Communist label on Governor Stevenson, Senator McCarthy took pains to say in so many words that he was not saying "that Stevenson was a Communist or pro-Communist." The idea that emerged was that he was fitting together a jig-saw puzzle that would prove that "something was wrong." But there was only a reiteration of charges already made about Governor Stevenson's campaign advisers and his own past activities. There was the familiar device of holding aloft dippings and documents and saying they contained proofs. And there was the reference to "Alger" smilingly corrected to "Adlal." But the whole skirted carefully around the expected demolition of the Democratic candidate. The speech can have convinced only those convinced already, before it was delivered. One concludes that Senator McCarthy either pulled his punches, or else had few punches to deliver. An evidence that punches may have been pulled were blank spaces on two pages of the mimeographed text as given to reporters. Possibly this was to avoid a repetition of what had happened to Senator McCarthy four days before in Seattle. There a station canceled a televised broadcast scheduled for the Senator because he did not offer proof of statements that the station feared were libelous. Possibly, too, he felt himself constrained by the fact that anything he aaid was sure to be gone over with a fine-tooth comb. He, may have had In mind that statement in his pre-primary speech In Wisconsin, the point of which was seeming proof that there were Communists In the State Department today. The Senator offered It Under date of July 28, 1932, without explaining that this recent document merely quoted another actually written in 1928, when Calvin Coolldge was In the White House and Frank B. Kellogg was Secretary of State. That may have helped him win his resounding triumph in the Wis-cnasin primary, but It backfired when the truth became known. It should be noted that both the Republican State Committees of Illinois and Wisconsin, like the Republican National Committee itself, were careful to disavow Monday nieht's broadcast. It was one sponsored Independently. And whether it was- a help or a hindrance to the Eisenhower cause Is a matter of doubt. In any case, the country can now relax, stuff its fingers in its ears while Mr. Truman rants through the remaining days, and turn its attention to the real issues In the crucial decision that lies ahead. mother, are well integrated, and suffer from no personality defects. Not even Percy. He gets pushed around but when the going gets too rough he hides behind a chest of drawers and probably knocks out a few iambic cat verses. These names, as I say, are merely appended for convenience. Interested? Soon to leave their mothers! Our cat placement department is anxious to find good homes for all of them. The Charter Oak bridge never looked prettier than it does now. Bridges always have been associated with romance and adventure and this lovely bridge, shimmering in its new aluminum coat in the sunlight, is a thing of beauty. I have had the shivers every time I have gone over it lately, and watched the men painting. What a tremendous job to take over! For a fellow like me, who gets fatigued at the thought of painting a window sill, the bridge-painting job was herculean. I checked with Albert Hill, State Highway Commissioner, and he says the contractor has used 2,465 gallons of paint, or about 10.000 quarts. This covers 6,615 tons of plate-girder bridge, 175 light standards, and 7,833 feet of railing. The bare spots were sandblasted, then a primer of' zinc chromate and iron oxide was applied. Then a patch coat of aluminum was placed over the primer, followed by a full coat of aluminum paint. Considering the work -that has been done on the road surfaces, plus this huge paint job, it is fair to say that the Charter Oak Bridge enters the winter looking better than it has since it first opened for business. Who else can say as much? The Peoples Forum Adlal Stevenson's platform collapsed just before he stepped on it In New London. The same thing happened to General Eisenhower a few weeks ago. Obviously falling platforms must take their place alongside the other hazards of campaigning, including laryngitis und hand-shaker's cramp. It is easy to see why platforms fall. No carpenter ever takes the political slant when he erects the platform. He puts It together to stand normal strains. In doing this he overlooks these two well-known facts: a That local political dignitaries usually run to rather full sizes, rather than otherwise, and b. Local dignitaries fight like everything to get on the platform, with the presidential candidate. The result ia a platform crowded with people who, when weighed ln per cubic foot, rate pretty high. Governor Stevenson was, of course, only having his little' joke when he said everybody wanted to get on the Democratic platform. There Is a temptation to take the matter on from that point to Its present shattered condition. But it Is enough to observe that carpenters better take the facts of life into consideration when they start making platforms. They must accept the fact that platforms will be subjected to stresses and strains comparable only to the party platform, and thus will be broken almost as often. Schmitt orated, even conducting the Talkathon, working round the clock for full twenty four hours. He had ability, was well known, and had held public office. No person seeking nomination ever took the lambasting Senator McCarthy did. He was denounced as a character-assassin, a Fascist, a reactionary, a bogus patriot, alarmist, and a new label of "McCarthyism" was added' by Communists. No group of people ever went to the polls better informed. Wisconsin read and discussed the issues presented for and against McCarthy. The voting was characterized by intelligence. McCarthy was only an individual, but the issue he set forth was important. The- therefore, became in the minds of the people not McCarthy or anti McCarthy, but pro Communist and anti Communist. The result: A glorious and triumphant victory for Joe McCarthy and for American'sm; and a defeat for Communists, and their smear tactics. Thomas L. Flynn Hartford Hill Purtell Knows the The Stevenson Theory By Joseph Alsop With the Stevenson Campaign Party There are "several days to go before the election. According to the most widely held theory, great numbers of the voters will only make up their minds when finally alone with the voting machine and the Almighty. All the same, it seems worth recording the mood of Adlai E. Stevenson's high command before this reporter abandons electoral barn-storming. The mood of these men who have directed Governor Stevenson's campaignmost of them political semi-pro-fessionals at best is curiously mixed. ar- -ri ar vv because they quite 1 honestly believe Mi 1 that them haH hpAn swing to in recent iff inai in I 1 a big 1 i Stevens 7 weeks; I i i afraid. I Stevenson afraid, and they are Yoiir Neighbor Wins, You Win Bill Savitt once told a jewelers' convention that one of his principles in huslness was to cooperate with other retailers, because "If your neighbor wins, you win." It has been one of his creeds in public life, too. His record of community service goes back many years. It deserves the praise that Mr. Savitt's selection for the 1932 Citizenship Award of the Jewish War Veterans will bring It. Bill Savitt started a small jewelry business alone on Park Street 32 years ago. Through aggressive use of advertising, firm 1elief'fln the power of brand names, and a dedication to public and community service that saw him willing to devote much of his time to good works, he became one of the city's leading merchants. His business skill has been recognized by national associations that have honored him. Recognition of what Bill Savitt's work has meant to Hartford means more than looking over his record. It means realizing that he was willing when organized baseball had died in Hartford in the poverty-stricken thirties, to go in' and keep the game alive to give loyal fans something to chrer about. It means remembering that when he started a local radio station, he did It "to give the little man air time." A year ago he counted hU employees at 63, and he gave them a life insurance and pension plan that was called one of the more comprehensive ones in the Greater Hartford area. He has set a standard of business performance that is high and worth trying to equal. His new award is given him for a life and deeds that exemplify how an American should live in this land of many faiths and beliefs. Conning as it does in the waning days of an election campaign that has slipped into stirring up racial and religious feeling, the award should remind Hartford that courtesy, loyalty, and generosity toward your neighbor make for a better world. If your neighbor wins, you win. because they fear the swing may have started too late. One of the stranger features of the situation is the weicht now given in TV and Radio Will Determine This Election To the Editor of The Courant: This Presidential election has many Interesting sidelights. One of the more important is that it pits the power of the press against the power of radio and television. About 75 per cent of the newspapers in America are supporting General Eisenhower. About la per cent are supporting Adlai Stevenson. So the latter has taken to radio and television in order to get his message across, to the American voters. Newspaper readers are subjected to slanted editorial propaganda, which seeks to justify Ike, and needle Radio and TV are different. We get no known venomous political slants from the broadcasting companies. All political propaganda must be paid for in this media. And we get our candidates just as they are. and not as the Studio owners would like them to be. Adlai and Ike make their appearance, say their say, and that's radio-TV. And because that's that, Governor' Stevenson is making an excellent impression on radio listeners and TV-viewers. All agree that he is an excellent orator. Most agree that what he says makes sense. And many assert that he has the characteristics of a new great leader. If Stevenson Is elected, we will know that radio and television are a more powerful media of advertising than newspapers. John McKeon Windsor Vote for Edward J. McMahon For the State Legislature To the Editor of The Courant: I approve of Edward J. McMahon's stand that the proposed nonresident em" ployee pay roll tax program for Hartford would be unwise and unfair, discriminatory and shortsighted. It would be heartless to tax nonresident employees who have large families to support on small salaries. Hartford' real prosperity depends on fair and nondiscriminatory methods of taxation. Mr. McMahon is a brilliant lawyer who will serve well in the State Legislature. He has a constructive "program for definite benefit to Hartford. I shall cast my vote for him on the basis of his courage, fairness and clear thinking, and in the interest of good city government, and urge others to do likewise, Kenneth B. Squires Hartford What Wisconsin Said To the Nation To the Editor of The Courant: The voters of Wisconsin taught the nation a lesson that was long overdue. They are known for their high degree of intelligence, integrity, and genuine liberalism, and they overwhelmingly renominated Senator Joe McCarthy. For more than six months before the primary election in Wisconsin, the out-and-out Communists, assorted left-wing groups, ADA organizations, and the professional New and Fair Dealer on the scene used every effort to defeat the Senator. They endeavored for a long time to get someone to run against the Senator, finally they decided upon an attorney, Leonard Schmitt. Once Schmitt was agreed upon, he received the grealest amount of barking outside the state that any candidate ever received: From President Truman, through the State Department and other government agencies, also from hII types of "bleeding heart" organizations, the radio, and influential speakers. Furthermore, the C. I. O. and the A. F. L. and the pro Communists gave their wholehearted support to Schmitt. He had an efficient organization, financial aid, and publicity of the most professional type. Night and day, week after week, Laughing Matter Working Man's Problems To the Editor of The Courant: I wish there was some way I could let the people of Connecticut know Senator Purtell the way I do, particularly the working people, of which I am one. I have known the Senator for 35 years, 23 of which I have worked for him. Believe me, he knows the problems of the working man because he still is one. He has never forgotten that he came from humble, God-fearing parents. When you vote for Senator Purtell, you are putting your trust in a man who will represent all of the people re-, gardlcss of race, creed or position a man who stands for the highest principles and justice to all. Nelson D. Shettle Hartford The Art Exhibit at The Rockville Library To the Editor of The Courant: The Sixth Annual Exhibition by the Tolland County Art Association opened Saturday, October 18 at the Rockville Public Library. Mr. C. C. Cunningham, Director of the Wadsworth AthcneUm, delivered an address. "Art in Every-, day the speaker said, "is to be found in what we like; in its appeal to our sense of values." Art. necu not apply to pictures only, it is cosmopolitan in whatever is beautifully done. Pictures in various media show a de- cided improvement over former years. Subject matter is better handled as to artistic expression and elimination of detail. One can readily understand why "The Last by Forrest Musser is predominantly good. It has a radiance in keeping with the center of interest, Christ Himself. Other figures in the circular composition (which lis cleverly conceived I play a minor part in the grand ensemble, not less ingenously contrived. Mr. Musser has taken an old theme and plays it on new strings, using the same notes and not changing the melody. His interpretation touches a responsive chord in our hearts. 1 Walter Van Arsdale has a pot of gold at the end of his brush, as indicated by the sunlight he puts in his landscapes. His "Gate to Autumn" couldn't be more beautiful. At the other end of the spectrum we find Mrs. Ester W. Cotton dealing in somber shades. Her trees have dignified form and exquisite variety. To prove that she is cognizant of color she splashes bits of sunlight here and there. A visit to nature is recognized in Mrs. Cotton's landscapes. Blakelock would blush if he could see Ernest Tucker's painting of moonlight. ing Democrats were sunk in gloom until the end of September. But a few days ago even Governor Frank Lausche, who is not given to optimism about the chances of other Democrats, was saying the state was hanging in the balance and predicting Stevenson would win there by a hair. The Stevenson strategists are much encouraged by the plain signs that the Republican leaders also think there is an independent swing to Stevenson. But they have another theory, of some general interest, to explain why their encouragement is mingled with Visible worry. In brief, it is thought that the "egghead" vote, concentrated in the universities and other centers of high thought, is the true bellwether vote for the mass of independents. There are all sorts of proofs that the egg-heads, many of whom failed to vote at all in 1948 and favored Eisenhower immediately after the nominating conventions, have now swung to Stevenson almost solidly. It is further thought however, that the egg-head reaction is immediate and direct, whereas the reaction of the broad mass of independents is considerably delayed, being the result of a sort of political percolation. And the question is, has there been time for this percolating process? As to this reporter, after many weeka of campaign he is more uncertain about the electoral outcome than at the start, and has but little faith in the Stevenson theory or any other theories. Copyright, Nnw York Hrrald Tribune, Inc. Windfall By Christopher Billopp A windfall is a piece of unexpected good fortune. It often takes the form of a sum of money received by the head of the family who did not expect to get it. Announcement of the windfall Instantly stimulates the imagination of other members of the family. It brings to their minds the things they have wanted but hitherto been unable' to afford. In view of the windfall, they say that surely there is no longer reason why the capacity of the house should not be increased by adding a wing or finishing the attic. Or now would seem to be the logical time to spend some money' for evergreens, deciduous trees and shrubs. The family will be of the opinion that the windfall would be well invested were it spent on the latest television set with a giant screen and the newest gadgets. A big party to repay all social obligations will appeal to some members of the family. Johnny will regard this as the proper moment, to bring up the matter of a roadster. Mary will hint about getting a necklace and mother will begin to take a keen interest in the advertisements of fur coats. Windfalls produce delusions of grandeur. The head of the family will be lucky if his does not lead directly to a demand for a gentleman's country estate complete with a herd of pedigreed beef cattle and a couple of race horses, or a sea-going yacht or an orange grove in the Southland. His own idea that the windfall be carefully laid aside to take care of unexpected illness or other nerds nf a rainy day will get no support whatsoever, In fact, he may conclude that he would be in much 'better shape finnn- dally had there been no windfall at all, "The statistics I made up for my last address were so well received," said Senator Quagmire today, "I am leaving them in the At U. a newly arrived diplomat speaks five languages, while "the wife speaks four. Which gives the fellow an advantage, if only on paper. Darling of the High School Trade Don't Let Them i Take the Hay Away The old fashioned ward heeler who slipped a two dollar bill to the citizen voting right was a piker compared with the way it's done now by the Fair Deal. Right now the Federal Government is buying hay from Northern farmers at prices pushed up to the limit, and selling that same hay below cost to Southern farmers. The fellow who sells the hay at top prices is happy. The fellow who buys the hay below cost Is happy. The Government distributes about $8 million, and you cin't blame the partici- pants in the deal for saying they never had It so good. The. only people who aren't having it so good are the private dealers who normally buy and sell hay. Their sales program is disrupted. They ate say-t Ing that the whole thing is a plan to sweeten up the farmer just before the election. It is the consensus of established hay dealers that "it is a politically conceived and politieilly-administered program," This is only one of the many little ways that the Truman machine has of reminding people they never had it so good. It is no mere happenstance that the old folk find their Increased old-age pension In their envelopes this past month. Thus la the people's money being used to perpetuate In power the party that has given us a corrupt and worn-out Administration. No wonder they don't want It taken away. Snme Order Comes 'To the Parking Lots Some kind of milestone has been reached when at long last the parking lots of Hartford are for the time to be subject to regulations. It was a long hard fight, Mom, but we won a partial victory at least. It is a kind of control that the parking-lot operators might have submitted to voluntarily In the first place, with credit to Now there is no credit, because they were forced to accept the new controls ar-d gave In grudgingly. The principal provisions of the new ordinance mere'y call for things that any intelligent operator would have put into effect on his own. They call for a foolproof clplm-check system, bonds and liability Insurance, Illumination at night, posted rates and hours, attendants on duty during posted hours, and an end to shuffling cusomers' cars from one lot to The new ordinance also contains provisions as to the physical status of the lots, limiting the number of entrances and exits, and requiring fire regulations to be observed. All lots will be registered with the police. There Is no licensing provision In the law, as for some reason or other the parking-lot operators shy away from licenses. When the new ordinance becomes effective on 28, it will mean that at long last the lots will be subtect to regulations that re-move them from a kind of Jungle-land. This Is all to the good. But it does not affect, materially the o'her facets of this problem, having to do with the n-d for more parking space. Creation of new parV'nx facilities by contract with G. Fox and Company, plus the new municipally operated garage would transform this sllustion. Apparently the oifrr of G. Fox and Company is the Stevenson entourage tc the verdicts of the old pros, who were not formerly held in regard, to say the least. Big Jim Farley, once the great enemy of all New Dealing Democrats, was the man chosen to make the riposte to Senator Joseph R. McCarthy. By the same token, the Chicago patriarch, Tom Nash, and old Dan O'Connell of Albany, N. are muck quoted around this traveling circus nowadays. Nash has made a forecast of a solid Democratic victory in doubtful Illinois. Dan O'Connell has predicted that Albany county, which generally reflects the swings of upstate New York, will go for Stevenson by 25,000 votes a larger majority than in any recent Presidential contest. O'Connell's testimony negates much other evidence, General Dwight D. Eisenhower has unprecedented strength among the upstate New Yorkers. As O'Connell is the last surviving city boss who runs his fief in the ancient precinct-by-precinct style, what he says can not be lightly brushed aside. It must be added that constant repetition of this sort of isolated hopeful forecast is always a bad sign around any political headquarters. Yet it is also true that Stevenson himself. Wilson Wyatt, Democratic Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell and their co-workers seem genuinely to expect to win. Broadly speaking, they think the Democrats will hold the South with the probable exception of Virginia. They think the Democrats will also hold most, of the border states, with Maryland the most dangerous for them. They are fairly gloomy about the Midwest, but believe they will at least carry Illinois and Minnesota. And they expect to carry New York, California, Rhode Island, Washington, probably Massachusetts, possibly Connecticut, and perhaps even Pennsylvania. If their theory Is correct, they will have a heavy majority of the Electoral College, although a popular majority much narrower than usual. The theory is based on a series of assumptions, as follows: First, the Negro vote Is larger and more solid than ever. Second, the Republicans have made but little dent on the other special, foreign-descended groups with the exception of the Irish, and even the Irish defection la minimized although acknowledged. Third, labor is aroused and solid. Fourth, despite its great power, the Elsenhower movement in the South has not shifted the basic, mass Democratic vote in that region. And fifth and perhaps most important, the independent voters are going over to Stevenson. All of these assumptions made by the Stevenson high command are at least highly arguable, with the passible exception of the fifth. The rise in Stevenson's strength, caused by Inde- pendent and doubtful voters flocking to his standard, Is rather widely attested. In Ohio, for instance, the' lead Jose Ferrer has just returned from Hollywood, and has Immediately outraged a segment of the population by the crass statement that Marilyn Monroe Is strictly for the high-school trade. To rebut this statement, Indignant high-school students, and older citizens with mentality somewhat lesser than that of high-school students, are busy telling Jose, to go back where he came from. It is, of course, an argument that is always effective in these circumstances, It Is too bad the defenders nf the fair maid Marilyn did not consider the matter more carefully before blowing their bubble gum In Mr. Ferrer's direction. As an citizen, Mr. Ferrer's tastes have changed, along these lines as well as along many others. It la doubtful If Mr. Ferrer would care to sit down face to face with any of the quite awesome concoctions made of ice cream, whipped cream, goo. gunk, nuts, cherries and assorted condiments that high school students Ingest merrily each day. Instead. Mr. Ferrer perhaps likes a bit of liver and green snlad. But who is to say that Mr. Ferrer's liver-and-green salad kind of taste, to transfer the analogy, is superior to the taste of the high school student. For this, while not so sophisticated, is certainly filled with more gusto. Students of such matters say that Miss Monroe Inspires gusto In many who have left high school long behind, and who are not even interested In double dip banana splits. Surely this Is a tribute to her artistry. In short, while Jose Ferrer is a good actor despite a lack of ardor for him among the high-school trade, he is not what one might call a Monroe expert, Presumably, to be such one must be filled with Ice cream and Muff, and he able lo look at the world with a wcP stuffed feeling. And so Is Marilyn, well-stuffed, that is, as even Jose Ferrer must admit. It is not an exaggeration to acciaim it as worthy of. special notice. Luminous quality is its forte. To paint a tree right one must emphasize solidity. Mrs. Ruth Quandt selects her materials and logic directs them. The tree in her landscape is sturdy and natural and is tinged with sunlight from the field beyond. Snow cannot be painted unless the artist is aware of its colorful charm. Rhodabelle Turner perceives the soft glow of sunlight in her winter land-grape. Alfred Ludwig sing a colorful song In his "Way Back By that I mean that Mr. Lttdwig is primarily a colorist. But he strikes a note of exultation for us with his figures in action. His natural sense of balance gives unity to the whole. The exhibition will continue to November 1, and will be open during regular library Hours. John A. Mahcrj Rockville "Speak In ymt a minute
