OCTOBER e, A Local Problem A very interested observer might be inclined to point out that the Naugatuck state highway program has become a strictly local problem—if anything resembling favorable action in the next few years is to be developed. Commissioner G. Albert Hill all but threw up his hands in despair at the difficulties of terrain, building removal and expense involved when he appeared at a meeting of the traffic committee of the Chamber of Commerce here recently to discuss the badly-needed Naugatuck highway improvement. Quite frankly and without apology he stated that the Highway Department has no def inite ( plan in mind or on paper. This despite the rapid approach to completion of the million dollar super highway from Seymour to Beacon Falls, adding up to smooth driving from Seymour to Waterbury—except for the Naugatuck bottleneck. Obviously, the Highway Department has given some consideration to the Naugatuck road. But have they approached it from the angle that Something MUST be done, or with the attitude that any plan proposed will be one of difficultyjtand disturbance in whatever quarters 'to be af fected ? Major works have been undertaken in other cities, notably Waterbury, where many access and through highways add up to an existing situation far more favorable than we have here with our single, crowded main line. Naugatuck,. we feel, is privileged to question whether the local urgency is receiving the attention deserved, in comparison with projects now under way, or on the books. Commissioner Hill has asked for suggestions toward solution of a definite; problem. That puts the question right up to •Naugatuck for answer. Under the circumstances, and in view of the increasing urgency of action, local talent and thought had better be applied. A highway plan is wanted. It's essential. It looks like a worthy project for a committee of the Naugatuck Chamber of Commerce, the borough planning commission, or any similar civic-minded organization willing and able to accept Commissioner Hill's challenge. Turkeys Aplenty Like roast turkey? Most people do, whether one prefers dark meat to light or the other way round, all will be glad to know that turkeys are in bountiful supply. According to the U. S. Department of Agriculture. 41,000.000 birds, almost a record, are about ready for the market with the prospect that this highly favored food will be available at lower prices than for other poultry, or for beef, for the entire season, not alone for Thanksgiving- '• The thrifty housewife will be no less pleased with this nev/s than the gourmet. She knows she can make repeated serving of turkey with less likelihood of the family becoming sated than she could with repeated serving of beef. Roast turkey loses none of its savor even after being warmed over. That cannot be said of most meats. And if she doesn't want to buy a large turkey, as she often has had to do, it is promised there will be small and medium sized turkeys and turkey parts. The high production rate, with the expected cheapening of price, must be credited in the main' to research. Up to a few years ago turkey raising was extremely hazardous. It was courting disaster to have the birds in proximity to chickens. But that and other handicaps have been overcome or minimized. Evolution Of Terms "Conservative," "Reactionary" and "Old Guard" are terms that today are used rather indiscriminately to describe a class of citizens that through years of vilification has become widely regarded as "Public Enemy No. 1." To be a "Liberal" or "Progressive" is to merit divine blessing and the everlasting gratitude of an admiring populace. It is interesting to examine the reason for this. Both conservatives aj»d liberals have as their objectiaj^ljhe attainment of the greatest good for the greatest number. It is the 'method of accomplishing this objective on which they differ. Broadly speaking, a conservative looks to the individual to do the job, whereas the liberal looks to the government. The conservative points to the experience of the past as a justification for his position. The liberal ignores history. Liberals seek to improve the lot of manklndby adoption of schemes to redistribute wealth, although redistribution of existing wealth would add little to the wealth of each recipient. The effect of these schemes is to destroy or lessen the necessary incentive to produce wealth, and thereby to defeat the objective. Only by the production of more wealth can the wants of the people be satisfied. In no other way can it be done. Seven hundred years ago, the Barons at Runnymede wrung from King John the Magna Carta, regarded as the beginning of. individual liberty among the English-speaking people. From that day on, continuous struggle has been waged to free the individual from the domination of the state and to make the people, not the government, the master. Had anyone, prior to the last decade or- two, suggested that King: John was a liberal, and that the Barons at Runnymede and those who have since carried on the struggle to limit the power of the state were reactionaries or conservatives,, he would have been regarded as a fit subject for an insane asylum.
