The Glawackus was still loose in the snow-covered hills of Glastonbury Tuesday night, victor over the wiles of the best huntsmen in these parts. The Glawackus, by the way, is the animal which has buffaloed local citizens and his given the bird to two organized hunts. Describing it as having a body larger than a dog and having a cat-like head, many people in the vicinity believe it to be a small mountain lion or a large wildcat. Until they're sure, the scientific term Glawackus will be used. The name comes from Glastonbury, its habitat, and from wacky, too describe the way everyone feels about the whole thing. The ending makes it sound Latin and authentic. There will be no hunt today, Charles Allshouse of Granby, Hart-fordCounty game warden and leader of the posse, said. Of Tuesday's fruitless search, he said: "We covered between 10 to 12 miles, on Buckingham Mountain in the morning and around Rattlesnake Mountain through the Diamond Lake region in the afternoon, and never a sign did we see. Not a track, not a scent did the dogs pick up." f After "walking the legs off of some of the fellows," Warden Alls-house said it was decided to abandon the organized hunts until someone had definite sign of the animal. Requests were left to call him just as soon as anything turned up. In the meantime, however, local hunters are expected to stalk the Glawackus. Lead, the Ozark-trained cat dog which has accomnanied the hunt ers hasn't done anything to write home about but at that he has been no worse than local logs who are supposed to know every tree in the wooas. The animal could be a mountain lion, the warden said, escaped from a Manchester, Vt., zoo during the hurricane in September. Such an animal couia prey on yearling calves, he said, but no human would be in danger unless the lion were cornered or starving to death. .Because it is out of its native habitat, the animal is probably restless, Warden Alsshouse said, and might move on and be reported some distance away in a short time. However, it will probably stay around the Buckingham section of Glastonbury as long as there are enough rabbits to meet the needs of a mountain lion's appetite. That is, of course, if the Gla wackus is a mountain lion. Row Over Quoddy And Florida Looms Washington, Jan. 17. (AP.) An other row over spending appeared in prospect tonight alter President Roosevelt asked Congress to revive the Florida ship canal and the tidal power development at Passama-quoddy Bay, Me., two new daal projects which have been dormant because of the legislators' refusal to provide funds. Mr. Roosevelt made his request in letters to Chairman Mans'ield Democrat, Texas, of the House Rivers and Harbors Committee and Chairman Bailey, Democrat, North Carolina, of the Senate Commerce Committee. He urged the $200,000,000 canal on the basis of "commercial and military needs." For Passamaquoddy, estimated to cost $37,000,000, he proposed an appropriation for continued tests and a small experimental plant.

Paul McGuire of Austral.a, author and Catholic Action leader, told an audience of more than 1003 persons at the Bushnell Memorial Tuesday night during a lecture on "The Christian Revolution", under auspices of Hartford Council, Knights of Columbus. "There is no quick-fire method of reforming the world at large," he asserted. "The office worker cannot reach the mine worker and the mine worker cannot reach the office worker. But we can reform ourselves, our families, our friends and eventually the communtiy, the re gion and the world. Aim of Action Told. The end of Catholic Action is to restore Christ to the world, the speaker declared. The layman, ha said, is beinar told by the Pope and bishops that he is a member of the Churcn. and mat as a memoer oi the Church, he must assume its re sponsibilities. His job now is to go and show the world that ne is governed by the spirit of Christ. Catholic Action, he said, is not concerned directly with economic or political, cases but he stated his belief that Catholic Action can reform both in the world. "Politics and economics are effects of values men hold. We know that both will come clean when we get the fundamentals that move men's behavior to come clean" he declared. , Charity Stressed. Catholic Action must grow and develop by constant intensification of Christian charity, he stated, and added that Actionists must demonstrate that love of Christ means something in their lives. "We must think of the concrete problem of making somebody a Christian, starting with ourseives," he said. Mr. McGuire, who has worked with Catholic committees in almost every country in the world, was introduced bv Reginald G. DeVaux, srrand knight of Hartford Council. On the olatform were Hubert C. Minkowski navigator, Bishop Mc-Mahon Assembly, Fourth Degree; CharlDes J. Reardon, KSG; William J. Mulligan. KSG. state master, fourth degree; Louis A. Perry and John J.

DOES THEIR STAINED LOOK SHOUT "FALSE"? DO THEY GIVE YOU "DENTURE BREATH"? ARE GUMS SORE DUE TO UNCLEAN PLATES? NOT IF YOU Of course you clean your plate or bridge. You may even soak it in a mouth wash. But still your denture may be only half-clean. And unless it i truly clean and purified it can wiean real trouble! For "denture breath" probably the most offensive of all breath odors is caused by half-clean plates. And their tell-tale stains can actually shout "false". Often they result in sore gums and even in serious infection. Prizes Given At Meeting Of Dairymen Ellington Girl Wins Grand Award; Dr. O. E.
