What Our (Oak Street Resident Pledges $100 For Sister Kenny Clinic; Urges Local Support Of Campaign As I purchased the other day a couple of items a; the drug store, a tall round can attracted my attention. Turning' it around I read the words "Sister Kenny Foundation for Polio." The can was nearly empty, I wonder why. I deposited my donation. And began thinking that can was placed there for a very worthy cause. Seme time ago I read in the News a statement by one of our citizens criticizing the placing of the canj in Naugatuck business places and stores. Because the foundation does not aid the Nau- (atuck children, this might be true. Then it might not be. I would like to msk why it doesn't It's certainly not the fault of "The Sister Kenny Foundation." It's the fault of the citizens of Naugatuck and Connecticut for not seeing to it that a SUter Kenny Clinic is located in our state. Everybody Is familiar with her polio work. How she .has given many crippled polio victims, who were doomed for life in heavy braces or even a wheelchair. And gave them a chance for a normal life again. I know of one New England child, who has been treated through her clinic in New Jersey. The child's mother bad faith in Sister Kenny's work and begged for her boy to have her treatments. But had failed In her atempt to get him in until she made % personal appeal on the John, J. Anthony radio program. I was fortunate enough to hear her make her plea over the radio that night. Before the program had •igned off, a message was handed to Mr. Anthony and a man from Use New Jersey clinic asked for o.n Interview soon with the child's mother. This child received the Kenny treatments. I believe the mother said her child had had polio for the past five years. Now he is nearly back to his normal self again after a few months. He might even be entirely recovered by now, as a few weeks ago Sister Kenny herself appeared on the same radio program and I heard her. Mr. Anthony asked her if she had heard about the child, she said that she had but had not seen the child, as she had just c9me back from a tour in Europe showing them her methods. Sister Kenny does not receive any money from the funds donated for her foundation, and is not a rich woman. She has done great work, for the children under her treatments and care. She is one of the healers sent through Jesus, as he had promised us before he left the earth. It took many years before her methods were recognized by the radical pro- fssion. Why more interest hasn't been shown for her miraculous polio work is something for the books. Our own and others in the state neea'tSeV WSatm-«nts 'nothing haa been done. - • - _ - -. .• Not one cent of the March of Dimes go to ward her foundation. Thousands of dollars are spent yearly through science for polio treatments. But no Sister Clinics *r« put into action, which has proved to be very; successful in many cases in the past. And they have been abandoned by the medical profession as hopeless cases. I believe that we should get behind The Sister Kenny Foundation and see to it that a clinic is established in our state, so that our children can secure the treatments which can save many victims from a life in the' wheelchair or braces. It would be even more beneficial if they received the Kenny treatments before they are turned down by medical doctors. I have no children of my own but my sympathy goes out to every polio victim whether it happens to be in Naugatuck or New Jersey. In New Jersey the kids are fortunate enough to have a clinic. I don't believe it is wrong for them to appeal to us for a small donation for The Kenny Foundation. We have a beautiful sweet child in Naugatuck. Her name is Nancy. I know her personally by a slight acquaintance this past summer, as we, her, my nephew, niece and myself played ball together in our back yards. I would like to see Nancy run after the ball and play with us again soon. If she does not completely recover from her treatments she is receiving now, the Sister Kenny treatments might Hawley Hardware 102 Church Street Hotpoint Refrigerators Tile Board Tools Rouse Paint Lighting Fixture* Hand and Power Mowers Phone 4086 We Deliver The MUSIC SHOP . . . records for children make wonderful year-round' grHts • • • 88 Church St. Phone 5287 ['S SEKOTCE STATION and GABAOB I M Bobber Are.

Let's not let Nancy sit on the side lines tor £ive years as the other child did. I just learned of her plight a few days ago and it gave me the inspiration to write this appeal. If little Nancy needs the Sister Kenny treatments for . a complete recovery from polio, then I think she should have them. If we cannot get her in another clinic, outside the state, why not begin right QOW and start a fund to have one in our own state. Then our polio victims could receive her treatments which I believe to be the best on record today. We should not deny the victims the best cure possible because of lack of funds, or interest shown just because the clinic is not located in our state now. More polio victims than ever before have gripped this nation right now. It not only strikes children but grownups. A donation now, whether it be paid weekly or monthly might help you in. the future if suddenly stricken with polio. Some years ago- the Whittemores offered the Gertrude Whitemore home to the borough of Naugatuck as a gift. It was not accepted, why [ don't know unless it was for the taxes it brought into the treasury. They had no charity intentions in mind at the time, although we did need a hospital. It would have made an ideal location for a Sister Kenny Clinic, •which could serve the people of the New England states. We have enough money if it was put into n fund to equip a clinic. Heal Chris- tions must possess a great amount of faith, a great amount of hope and a great amount of charity and the greatest of these is charity, if we want to be workers for Christ. I-et's show our strength for charity by giving a Sister Kenny Clinic to the state. Through our generous donations to the fund. I feel sure Sister. Kenny would gladly receive us into her fold, and give us her services we need to get it started. It's her life work to aid polio victims. Most of us have read Rev. Bertram's article in the News Saturday about g-ambling being a sin. Well I'm willing to gamble some money on the Sister Kenny Clinic, to bet on polio victims who can't be nured by other methods. As this is my appeal to you citizens of Naugatuck tb help polio' >rictimn, -who knows not who the next victim might "be. It might be you or me. Como you Exchange Club members who have aided the children and others get behind this great cause and jdve it a boost. Since I have suggested it, and have much faith in her great work, I would like to be the first on the list as a donator. Here is my pledge for . $100.00 to start it. Let's get going. What's holding us back? As Mel Allen's famous phrase goes. "HOW ABOUT THAT." Written by MISS IRMA N. GEORGE, 18 Oak Street Naugatuck, Conn. CEMENT REQUIREMENTS Seattle—Almost 24 million tons of concrete were used during the construction of Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia river. Control Chamber For Growth Studies Built At New Haven New Haven, Oct. 13—Some of the most pampered corn plants in the world will be growing this winter at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, where a new and unique control room has just been constructed for growth studies. Designed largely by Walton C. Galinat of the Station's Genetics Department, the new room was built to help answer the question "What causes flowering in plants ind can man control it?" If man could set the time when a crop is :o mature, the advantages would Tbviously be great. Environment in the control room 's a far cry from the haphazard conditions in which plants normally grow. Length of daylight hours, temperature, humidity and nutrition will all be rigidly controlled. It is known that all of these four factors—length of day in relation to the number of hours of darkness, temperature, humidity and the kind and amount of food received have some bearing. By mak- ng it possible to regulate these "actors and vary them at will, the new control room should yield some valuable answers concerning :he role and relative importance Df each in plant growth. All walls of the room, which is located beneath the ground, are blank so that no outside light is allowed to enter it. The room itself is divided into four long narrow chambers, each containing a stand on which a shallow trough is placed. Corn- plants will be grown in gravel culture in these troughs, so that the amounts of potash, phosphorus and nitrogen, the three essential plant food elements, which the plants receive can be con- trolltd with the highest degree of accuracy. Above each stand is a long battery of daylight fluorescent tubes, each of which is controlled by a time' clock. Plants can thus be grown in continuous light, continuous darkness, or any combination between. Spring or fall growing conditions, or -growing conditions in any part of the world can easily • be simulated. When the battery of lights is turned off, the room is in absolute darkness. The degree of warmth and moisture in the room atmosphere can likewise be controlled absolutely. The room is the fifth of its kind to be constructed. Other similar control laboratories are in operation at the LT. S. Department of Agriculture Research Center at Beltsville, Md., Harvard University, Boyce Thompson Institute and California Institute of Technology.

Early this morning, the upper chamber rejected by a vote of 53 to 15. his nomination of Leland Olds to a third terffi an the Federal Power commission. Mr. Truman had previously failed to get approval of Mon Wallgren to head the National Security Resources board, and t>f Carl Ilgenfritz to head the Munitions board. The latest action' represents a major political defeat for the President. The defeat is an especially bitter pill for. Mr. Truman to swallow inasmuch as he and Democratic Chairman William Boyle, Jr., had waged a strong party discipline campaign to pressure senators into voting for Olds. When the showdown came 21 Democrats lined up with 32 Republicans in rejecting the nomination. BABY SUFFOCATES At Winsted, a two months old baby was. found dead in his crib. The lifeless body of Chesterfield E. Nash was.found by his mother. A doctor said the child apparently died of suffocation after becoming tangled in his bed clothing. XAOGATUCK NEWS (CONN.). THURSDAY. OCT. 13, 1941*—PAGE 11 New London Hotel Added To N.H. RR's Reservation Plan The Hotel Mohican at New London has been added to the lint of hotels in the New Haven Railroad'5 advance reservation plan, it was announced today. Effective Oct. 15. this means that persons from New York or other stations on the New Haven Railroad may, upon purchase of a railroad ticket to New London or beyond, make an advance confirmed reservation for a room at the Mohican. There is no charge for the service. Other cities where the railroad has similar arrangements with hotels are New York City, Boston and Providence. In each of these cities the railroad has a number of hotel rooms assigned to it for every day throughout the year, and therefore its ticket agents are able to assign these rooms to railroad travelers upon purchase of rail tickets. In New York passengers have a choice-of 18 different hotels, in Boston 11, and in Providence four. Travelers thus are saved the bother of ^writing, wiring or telephoning for hotel reservations, and have no bother of waiting in line upon arrival. The room reservations are held until an hour after the scheduled train arrival time. Reilly Practices Teaching At NHS Thomas F. Reilly.
