Dally Newspaper Pirt. Com. M«w»paper Publishers MONDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1949 A Sturdy Line Many men are spurred to achievement by the desire to pass wealth or an honored name to their descendants. Part of the satisfaction brought by hard- won fame is the anticipation that following generations will happily bask in reflected glory. The hope that there will be male heirs to carry a famous name is seldom realized for more than a few generations, and rare is the descendant who bears the name of an ancestor who achieved distinction many cen- taries ago. George Washington has no children. .Of Lincoln's sons, only Robert grew to manhqod and he had no son. Jackson was childless and Jefferson was survived only by daughters.,- Napoleon's only son died in childhood. More fortunate was Christopher Columbus, who founded a durable dynasty. He has been dead 443 years, but there is still .a descendant bearing his name and the multitudes of titles which the grateful sovereigns of Aragon and Castille bestowed on him and on his heirs in perpetuity. The present Christopher Co- himbus was invited to attend New York's Columbus Day ceremonies this year, but his duties as a lieutenant in the Spanish navy required his presence elsewhere. He has inherited, along -.vith his proud name, the troubles -.vhich might be expected in a world that is tnoV always as credulous as It seems. He encountered much scoffing liughter when he gave his name rs Christopher Columbus. It became tiresome, so now he uses Christopher Veragua, being Christopher Veragua', being r.mong other things the 17th Tuke of Veragua. Life would doubtless be sim- i'orly irksome for a seventh or c'ghth George Washington or a direct descendant whose name v as Napoleon Bonaparte or Wil- Kam Shakespeare. I lake It Even-Stephen It is difficult for those who fave not seen figures as to the ebb and flow of "seating traffic" on the driver's seats in trucks to decide how to greet the announcement that out of the chemical horn of plenty, the DuPont laboratories, has come perhaps the most rugged upholstery material ever made. By seating traffic, presumably, they mean the familiar motion of plumping one's self down behind the wheel, going through the requisite number of squirms and wriggles that driving entails, then sliding out. Well, the new coated fabric sounds exciting, and it is easy to think of many other places where it should be used. And since all things eventually seek a balance, probably one of the textile divisions of DuPont, or some other company, is now working to bring the seat of the pants up to standard wear-wise. It would be only fair. Defense Fears Contest in Washington over the pinching out of naval funds is producing all the yeowling of a catfight but the importance of the discussion is basic. The issue is whether the United States Is laying the groundwork realistically for its defense in case of a war with Russia. This nation has never been adequately prepared for a war. Although it has muddled through against a strong adversary who was also involved elsewhere or. as in the case of Mexico and Spain, fought with countries relatively weaker. The outcry today is that the Washington military authorities are designing a defense built around aviation alone in the belief that the atom bomb will be decisive. Russia's alleged possession of the bomb has caused grave and-desperate doubts. Assertions that the chief potential carrier of the bomb, the B-36, is extremely vulnerable do nothing to quiet fears over current policy. The Navy apparently is set down for convoy duty alone. If it is good for convoy duty, why isn't it also capable of reaching and establishing the advanced bases America would require if Ruosia swept over Europe and Asia? If the atom bomb can wipe out all naval forces, a theory that has not been seriously advanced, then it is foolish to waste appropriations on any ships. But if the Navy can do convoy duty, it obviously can do more. The world is in a military revolution. No one can foresee all the details of the next clash of arms. Until the situation has been clarified it would be extreme foolhardiness to liquidate the United States Navy which is, by long odds, the most powerful in the world. Plenty Of Apples Johnny Appleseed has been done proud by this year's crop. *Too much so, some say, although it is difficult to see how that would be possible. The country's orchards have put out 130,000,000 bushels, a whopping 41,000.000 more than in 1948, sending Department of Agriculture emissaries scurrying about the country to promote increased consumption of this ambrosia of all fruits. Unless normal channels of trade drain off the surplus, warns the production and marketing administration of the Department of Agriculture, the government will be compelled to buy it up under the market stabilization program. But first, the nation's homemakers. grocers, food processors and restaurant operators are being urged to dig into the supply. How successfully this missionary work will pan out remains to be seen. In the past, the good old law of supply and demand— now repealed—would have taken care of the crop. But in consumers suceced in eating their way through the crop they will have fewer apples to buy as taxpayers. And tasty appie pie beats apple subsidies any day of the week. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Calvin Hoadley, a member of the class of 1950 at the University of Connecticut, was chosen a cheerleader/ A strong Shelton High football team routed Naugatuck, 33-6. at Shelton. Joe Tamsey scored the lone touchdown for the Greyhounds. 20 Years Ago John Bickerdike was chairman of a dance to raise funds for the Rangers football team. John Mahoney, a student at Bay Path Institute, Springfield, Mass., was visiting with his parents in the borough. MODERN ETIQUETTE Q. Is it all right for a man to remove his glove to shake hands when being introduced? A. Yes, if he can do so quickly and without making it obvious.
