Consultant Stresses Importance Of Jr. Red Cross Efforts The inxportance of Junior Red Cross work ; ln imfrrovinp' interna- tiohal relations between the United States and other countries was stressed by Miss Mary Louise Ransotn, Junior Red Cross consultant from the Eastern Area office, Alexandria, Va_, at a meeting of the Naugatuck Junior Red. Cross Council Monday afternoon in Salem school. Miss Ransom stated that of the three phases of Junior Red Cross •work—local, national and interna- tional, the international was by far the most important. Last year, she said, 500,000 grift boxes were sent by units in this country to European countries. Another important project is the classroom chests, which supply one classroom fo ran entire year, room for an entire year. Correspondence iprograms between states and countries wer« also discussed by Miss Ransom and she stressed the work being | done by Junior Red Cross units i in various veterans hospitals, i Ann Elise Erickison, who attend- I cd the training center at Welles- i ley, and Bruce Hoadlcy, represent| ativfi to the national Junior Red I Cross convention, spoke on their j experiences and answered ques- I tions. ' Mis5 Helen Moroney. principal of .Snlf-m school, opened the meet- inpr and introduced Mrs. Thelma Anderson, executive secretary of the Naugatuck Red Cross Chapter, who in turn introduced Msg Ransom. Approximately 30 teachers, >princi,pate andi Jiinfcir Red Cross representatives attended. Feed It And It Will Grow If you want financial independence, the first thing to do of course is to open a Thrift Account. The next is even more important: keep adding to it—"feeding" it. As with a baby duck, constantly feeding will make your account grow big and strong and healthy, which are merely other names for security, oppor- tunity'anjl success. So open that Naugatuck National Thrift Account without delay and we'll both start "feeding" it—you with deposits, we with interest. State Pedestrian Protection Program Starts Saturday Hartford, Oct. 12—"Arc your feet killing you?" This question was asked today by State Motor Vehicles Commissioner Cornelius F. Mulvihill. "One hundred and seventy human beings walked to their deaths in Connecticut during the past 21 -non-ths," the state official said.. Commissioner Mulvihill cx- nlained that his question "leads flirectly to Connocticiit'w annual •"Pedestrian Protection Program, which begins this Saturday, an all-out effort to reduce the high depth rate among those • who walk." _ "And the startling fact about 'h«>:i« Connecticut tragedies was 'hm almost all of them followed a national pattern, in which two out of every three pedestrians wero to blame for their own deaths," the commissioner stated. The most common and most fatnl fault among pedestrians, according to Commissioner Mulvihill, is -that they cros? 1 streets without looking out for approaching- automobiles. "If more fiodestrinns would keen their heads up, and 1 their feet 'inder control, most of our walker- fatalitieij would ceasp to be a iroblem and would become merely a topic of conversation," the cc ! rrl-nissioner said. Commissioner 'Mulvihill was informed today by the National P^fety Cbuncil that more than' 10.000 pedestrians wer e killed in this country lairt year.

Governor Chester Bowles also will be invited to address the convention. Usuallv held on a two-day schedule, the CIO convention will spread over three this time. This, according to Driscoll, is to permit one day to be devoted almost solely to political action. Connectir-ut CIO unions plan the biggest political action drive ever for the 1950 nf.mpaiern, Driscoll said. He said 1950 will be a particularly crucial election year for Connecticut. Driscoll pointed out that for the first time in the state's history a governor will be elected for a four-vear term. Also, due to the retirement of Senator Raymond E. Baldwin, two U. S. Senators, rather than one, will be elected in 1950. Approximately 150 local unions and CIO city councils will have delegates at the convention, the state CIO official announced.

Red Cross Aids In {•<« Fire Prevention Week Observance Mrs. Charles R. Andersen, executive secretary of the Naugatuck Red Cross Chapter, said today that the chapter is cooperating with the Chamber of Commerce to the utmost in its community-wide fire prevention program. "The Red Cross docs so, feeling that it gives us an nn opportunity to put special emphasis on the great need for reducing fire hazards," Mrs. Andersen said, "right at the time when fire losses usually turn upward." She continued: "We need not look far from Naugatuck for serious disasters of recent years, the Boston night club where 492 persons lost their lives, and the Hartford circus fire where 168 lives perished. As tragic as the disaster itself, is, NAIJGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), WEDNESDAY, OCT. 12. 1M!>—PAGE 5 the sickening realization which comes with the knowledge that the disaster could have been prevented. 'The Red Cross stresses safety in all of its work, and "safety"means doing away with carelessness. This same factor of carelessness is directly or indirectly the cause of the majority of our 650,000 yearly building fires in the United States. A look at Naugatuck's record for • the last fiscal year show that we had a total of 269 fires with an accompanying property loss of $14,450, and a further breakdown reveals that these fires were as follows: 91 brush; 22 motor vehicle; 5 chim- I ncy; 21 building; ! 115 miscellaneous. 15 oil burner; i "We know that the practicing : of I a few common-sense safety sugges- I tions would have prevented most of these fires. During this week, it behooves all of us to join in the drive to eliminate fire hazards and ' to develop a permanent dctermina- I tion to prevent fires." I In actively helping to carry out I the Chamber's fire prevention pro- 1 gram, Earl Shedd, first aid and accident prevention chairman of the local Rod Cross, today addressed i the assembled pupils of Central ! Avenue School on the subject of preventing fires. 2 WEEK DEVELOPMENT Philadelphia—A person develops malaria about two weeks after being bitten by a malaria-carrying mosquito. 6,000 DEGREES ON SUN Los Angeles—The temperature on the surface of the sun is estimated by scientists to be about 6,000 degrees centigrade.
