K>w»paper Publishers AJB'P WEDNESDAY, 'OCTOBER 8, 1949 Worthy Caase 'Officially under way, and with strong and 'competent backing, is the annual campaign in Naugatuck to raise $1,000 for the Girl Scout program. It's a worthy cause, one that needs little if any explanation of purpose and accomplishment. For the Girl Scout movement stands as a bridge to good^Americanism. civic pride and strength in principle and character. Few there are, indeed, unfamiliar with the good work resulting in and from the Girl Scout program. Fewer are those who will ignore plea for small contribution, or large, to support and strengthen its essential financial structures. Indorsement of the Girl Scout campaign for funds in Naugatuck needs no prompting. It's spontaneous. Some 5,000 letters have been mailed to Naugatuck residents requesting assistance for a most deserving program. Just $1 from each one approached would give Girl Scouting a lift never before anticipated in Naugatuck. And' that's what we'd like to see happen. The Girl Scout campaign is the open sesame of the new season of drives for funds-^-each for a different, essential and worthy cause. Without detracting from its immediate and proper substance, it's notable that the current drive is the first of a series that will continue through the winter months and into the summer of 1950. Each will have it's purpose; each will be worthy. Without exception, if past performance is any criterion, each will be successful. And that's to the credit of the several organizations sponsoring the several campaigns, as well as to the people of Naugatuck wh_o support, tham.. , In past years we've waited until the end of the annual, lengthy trail of fund-raising promotions to lift futile voice in favor of a single campaign in behalf of all the agencies now conducting individual financial efforts. We'll say it at the outset this year: How about a Community Chest Drive for Naugatuck? Rocking Electorate A great many members of Congress, notably Senator Byrd, have had a fling at making the electorate understand-, the real significance of the cost of running the federal government. As has been pointed out, the price tag is J40,000,000,000-odd. But, for our money—we use that phrase advisedly—Sen. Homer Ferguson of Michigan has just done a good job along the same line. If everyone holding life insurance in the nation were to cash his or her policies, says the Senator, the total take—approximately $44,000,000,000 r -would run the government for a little more than a year. To put it another way, if every industry liquidated its net working capital the total, $39,000.000,000, would keep the federal wheels grinding for only 11 months. The tota! assets of every farmer placed in one pool would make things go for about seven months. That ought to rock the electorate. S. G. Factor In Chairs A gentleman name of^ Ed'gar Kaufmann holds, out hope for those suffering- from inferirity complexesAvhen itcomes|to furniture. From now on no article of furniture is going to throw him or otherwise intimidate him. Mr., Kaufman has their nuriitier. Writing in the New York Herald-tribune., Mr. Kaufmann manages in a very few words to tell how to make your chairs live with you. There are a few salient points. If a ehair stands out from its brethren on the display floor leave it there. Otherwise it may so overawe and outpeacock your treasured belongings at home you may find yourself leaving burnt offerings before it. Another thing. Pick your chair for squirm. JSit in it Do you squirm comfortably? Fine! Now for the acid test. Do you squirm gracefully? Steady now are you being honest or has the chair already got its insidious grip on you? Its S. G. (squirm gracefully quotient is high? You've won! ...You've licked the chair physi- jcally and psychologjcany, and says you've gotten your money's •worth. And in this day and age when the pressures on you to accept what someone else says is right are almost - overpower- ing, victory on the basis of any one of three points is something to conjure with. A Popular Proposal If n leudor of the American bar has hia way, the courts of the land may bcsomo English speaking. He proposes that lawyers abandon their time-hallowed phrases and get down to plain talk. It may be the biggest boon to the human race since tho Phoenicians came up with the alphabet. This friend of the people would junk all the post hoes, to wits, per ses, and the rest of the high- sounding juristic mumbo jumbo. He would reduce the jargon to such clarity that frustrated juries might he less disposed to get themselves hung and parties to a contract wouldn't develop myopia squinting at the obtUBC terms. The country's legal machinery, creaking under the weight of common law precedents and more business than the courts can adequately handle, can stand plenty of stream-lining. Certain reforms have been instituted, notably in the emphasis on pretrial and administrative procedures, but much remains to be done. If a ranking lawyer believes that cutting out the double talk will reduce the number of cascw coming to court and opcoU up those that do, he's ip»o fucta persona grata with the public. England's socialist government is making little progress. But it is certainly keeping Uncle Sam busy trying to finance it. The Veep's romantic visits to St. Louis arc now getting Hmall play. If he doesn't hurry up. ho'il be relegated to the back page. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Wilby rallied for two last period touchdowns to defeat Naugatuck, 20-12.
