SUBSCRIPTION RATES Payable In Advance 1 Month ...S1JO 1 Year M amber: American Newspaper Pub. AM > H N. K. Daily Newspaper Pub. Ara*n Conn. Newspaper Publishers Aaa'n THURSDAY. OCTOBER 13, W49 Wanted: Police Radio Just as regularly as Halloween and the New Year there is raised the question each year In Naugatuck: "Why no radio communications system for the police department?" It's a good question. The annual answer is given in dollars and cents and tax comparisons. Even unto this late date the annual answer has been negative, despite estimates that the cost would be less than half a mill on the tax list. And an offer of a fraternal organization, The Elks, to help stand the initial expense of essential equipment was allowed to pass unaccepted. Communities of smaller size and population than Naugatuck have gone modern to the extent of recognizing the inadequacy and obsoletion of the signal system in use for all these many years between headquarters and the emeregncy patrol cars. Many have installed radio systems; others have made excellent use of central equipment of state or nearby city police systems. Arguments or descriptives in favor of adopting police radio are overwhelmingly favorable to a point requiring no repetition. The test of administrative action required to put it across as a borough service will come again at budget making time. The time, it seems to us, has passed when an emergency, crime and accident pre\ r ention and investigation auxiliary of this type can be viewed with the eye to cold calculation of its cost. Rather, it should be considered from the other extreme: How much has it cost Naugatuck to have continued this long without police radio? Expert Testimony Airing of the Soviet-Yugoslav quarrel before the world comes at a fortuitous time. It comes when questioning is raised as to why Western negotiators in the United Nations Atomic Energy Commission have failed to enter into a treaty with Soviet representatives for control of atomic weapons. Ail along the Russians have said they were willing to sign an agreement for prohibition of the bomb. Western representatives have maintained that a treaty would have no value unless accompanied by safeguards which Moscow was unwilling to accept. They lacked faith in the unsupported word of the Kremlin. In April, 1945, Moscow entered into a treaty with the government of Marshal Tito in which the reds pledged friendship, mutual aid and postwar cooperation. Molotov, then foreign minister of the Soviet Union, assured the Yugoslavs that the treaty was to insure "that our peoples, each along its own path, might go forward along the lines of national independence and real freedom." Now Moscow dissolves that treaty because Tito took the Soviets at their word. The treaty is dissolved not by mutual consent, but by unilateral action. It was a scrap of paper to be torn up when Moscow no longer regarded the honoring of it as advantageous. The reaction of Yugoslavia is interesting as 1 throwing litht on the charges raised by Foreign Minister Vishinsky against the United States and Britain as being the obstructors in the atomic negotiations. They are plotting war against the Soviet Union, he says, and desire the bomb to use against it. The' latest Belgrade note to Moscow s«ts out that: "The Soviet government is trying in its already customary way to shift the responsibility to the Yugoslav government, setting out slanders on alleged hostile policy toward the Soviet Union, founded exclusively on fabrications." As for the threat of war. Tito himself laid the blame to Russia. Addressing a group of army officers, he accused the Russians of "lying about us" and "slandering us in ouri own country." He also reaffirmed Yugoslavia's determination to fight if necessary. Yugoslavia knows Soviet methods from the inside. This is expert testimony. two particular epicures appeared on a harmless enough radio program to discuss the famous fish soup. They got around to an article -on the subject that had appeared in a national magazine. One, epicure said the author was wrong when he suggested the use of water. The other epicure shook hiss head and shouted "No!" One word led to another. Tempers frared, then fists —and the two were ushered out of the studio into the hallway to continue their battle. But the battle is not over. It has spread to New Orleans, where the experts say it's not a question of water but oil. Cottonseed or olive—or perhaps butter! It could also be a question of pronunciation of the dish or even the spelling of it. Steering clear of the firing line, all we can say at the moment is that b — 11 — se is fundamentally fish and in the future, when we go to a swank restaurant, we shall merely point to the word and 'say, as so many cautious Americans do, "Give me some of that. Move for government economy,. presumed to start in Congress, seems to have been sidetracked on a detour of more spending, and has lost its way entirely. California man raised a ton of turnips from a dime's worth of seed. Whether he made anything on the deal is not reported. In case of fog turn on the lights, safety officials advice. It is hoped Washington is listening. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Ronald Jones was named chairman of a nominating committee to name a slate of officers for the Salem School PTA.

O'Don- 'liell purchased a house and lot on Frederick street from Charles and Margaret Lins.

How can a divorced woman who is using her maiden name in- clube "Miss" in tront of her name when sending out her daughter's wedding announcements? A. A divorced ••woman with a daughter should not be using "Miss" in front of her name, as it leads to social complications such as this one. However, in this case, she can put "Mrs." in front of her maiden name, and give her daughter's full name on the announcement. Q.
