Town Health Officer Edward J. Finn says two more polio cases — bringing the total to four—-were 'iiscovered in 'the Pine Rock Park section of Shelton. Two of the vic- '.ims live on the same street, he said. Doctor Finn advised children vo stay away from school sessions for at least a week. The polio victims are 36-year-old Mrs. Shirley T. Estona and her four-year-old daughter, Marcia, eight-year-old Linda Oreiup and Terry Lundgren, four-years-old.

At Least Two Weeks Required To Study Hearing' Transcript; Next Regular Date Of Meeting Nov. 7 Argument Of Local Officials Will Be Considered (Special to The News) Hartford. Oct. 8—The Conn. Water Commission will take no action on "orders" for construction of sewage" disposal plants in four Naugatuck Valley communities for at least two weeks—probably longer. Transcripts of testimony given at a hearing Oct. 5 in Ansonia, attended by representatives of Ansonia. Derby, Shelton and Naugatuck, will be studied by the commission before afty action is taken. It may be necessary for further conferences with officials of the four communities to discuss details related to each individually. Recommendation has been made by Water Commission Director Richard Martin that the four communities start building by April 1, 1950, with the disposal plants to be .in operation by April 1, 1951. The next regular meeting of the Water Commission is scheduled for Nov. 7, and it is possible that action will be taken at that time. A reliable authority told The News that the Commission will insist that the four communities go forward with construction of sewage disposal plants, but will "not be unreasonable" in the application of time limits. Flatly OppoMd Ansonia, Derby and Shelton have flatly opposed the idea of building plants, contending* that if funds are to be made available they should be used for essential schools, parks and other facilities. Naugatuck offers no objection to the recommended order, other than the suggested time limit. Because of the need of obtaining legislative authorization, In 1951, to proceed with building at a cost of about $400,000. Naugatuck would defer the operation date to July l, 1953—more than two years 'beyond Mr. Martin's estimate. The arguments presente-i by Warden Harry L. Carter and Borough Attorney Joseph E. Talbot at the hearing, asking delay only for the purpose of obtaining legislative sanction of bond issuance, will be "looked into thoroughly," a commission official said. He said it wag a "new question" to the Commission. "If the state is to have a pollution abatement program it must be carried on in the Naugatuck Valley as well as elsewhere," said a spokesman. Acting Chairman Edward J. McDonough will preside at the November meeting. The commission has not yet elected a chairman because Herman Koppleman, Hartford, appointed recently by Governor Bowles, has not yet attended a meeting. The chairman is normally elected at the June meeting. The commission meets the first Monday of each month.

Native Before relating her activities of today, let's f?o back a little way, Mrs. Rosenblatt, the former Ceil Gilbert, was born in New York city. She went to New York's public schools but being one of a very 'arge family, was unable to ac- I quire the education which she desired. However, even then, she was not one to bemoan her fate, and she went to work' as an "Hill" Olilak.iwski at the City Fnckugu Store. Tel. 4892.—Adv. doing odd clerking jobs. Then '3ho became interested in designing. MRS. MORRIS ROSENBLATT and was engaged in designing hand made sachet bags, powder boxes and other trinkets for some time. It was during this time that she met Mr. Rosenblatt, a native of Naugatuck, and the couple was married in New York Oct. 14, 1917. They immediately took up residence in tMfc borough and went ; nto business in Union City. The two operated the store for 'wo years, after which Mr. Rosenblatt went Into the pump business and was on the road, with Mrs. Rosenblatt taking care of the books. Deciding to reestablish in the borough, they set up business in a store on Water street selling piece soods. and then established their oresent department etore on Maple street, where they have been for the past 15 to 16 years. This all sound* very simple—a roan and hi 8 wife going into business. But, the couple had five children, and life wasn't what might ^e termed easy during this time. Tt is almost unbelievable to realize that Mrs. Rosenblatt in manag- •ng a business establishment also managed a home and brought up a. family of five. It wa»--difficult, to •say the least. Mrs. Rosenblatt is certainly one who is entitled to every enjoyment ^Continued on Page Three) —Xow IK th<> tlmr t.i h:iv«.
