Newspaper Publishers Ass'n "THURSDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1949 Congratulations Mr. Carlson Just 49 years ago, in October, 1900. an energetic and resourceful young man by name of "Joe" Carlson opened a store on Church street, exactly where the William Schpero store is now located. Today. 49 years later, the same Joe Carlson, more mature appearing, but just as resouroeful and vigorous as ever in his approach to problems of business or community progress, can look back -with pride in accomplishment He can also look forward, we hope, to many, many more years of good health and success beyond the Golden Anniversary 12 months hence. For Mr. Carlson nas prospered and grown -with Naugatuck in the past half century. Moreover, his leadership in business and great interest in government have gone hand in hand to the advancement of the Carlson Furniture Co. and the borough of Naugatuck. Aided by a wife whose influences have been evident, and by sons and daughters who have inherited their parents' natural fine qualities and abilities to get along in business, or socially, with neighbors and townfolk, Mr. Carlson has guided his firm from a mcdest beginning to its present large proportions. One needs but compare the two flourishing stores now operated by Mr. Carlson and the members of his family with records of his first operation, to be made keenly aware of what has transpired in 49 years. Hard work painted the masterpiece. To say that Mr. Carlson has been a major factor and Influence in the gradual development of Naugatuck as a thriving community is putting it mildly. His hardiness, business acumen and willingnfis to make the best use of the blessings of good mind and body would have made him successful in any endeavor of his choosing, a credit to any community. Naugatuck has indeed been fortunate that here he has lived and worked and prospered. The Naugatuck News and its publisher take this opportunity to express a personal message of congratulations to ''Joe" Carlson, and to give voice to the heartfelt wish that Naugatuck's good fortune, as represented in his active presence, will be continued for many more years in the future. tJN Possibility Britain's Labor government wants to recognize the Chinese communist government. The Nationalist delegates to the United Nations from China are under attack by Russia. When and if the communist government in China is generally recognized, China will be represented on the Security Council by a delegate favorable to Russia. Then the lineup on that important UN group will be the United States, Britain and France against Russia and China. That is still a majority for the West, but Russia will not stop there. A great drive was made by Moscow to put France in the communist ranks. It will be resumed at the first opportunity. France is a weak nation, and if it ever falls completely into the hands of the communists, Russia •vvii] have a majority of the Security Council. That counsel, ac- coiding to the setup in the United Nations, makes the most important decisions. A United Nations controlled by communists is something to consider. Would the United States and Britain, following Russia's example, exercise the veto on everything- Russia proposed but continue membership in a futile organization? Or would a Russian majority be the death knell of the UN? The possibility may be remote, but if it ever comes to pass it will be a pretty kettle of fish. Gold Rush, 1949 StyJe Gold, as aiiybne can 'learn by digging into encyclopedias and other dust-covered works ofrefer- ence, was once greatly esteemed as a standard of value for national currencies. Some backward countries still use it for that purpose. But in the United States, gold succumbed to a lethal dose of lead poisoning and now lies buried at Ft. Knox, Ky. Or does it? Rep. Carroll D. Kearns of Pennsylvania arose in the House the other day to suggest that a congressional committee go to Ft. Knox, open the grave, and make sure the corpse is still there. Rep. Clare Hoffman of Michigan indorsed the move, but suggested that the gold bricks be sawed in half to ascertain if they are gold through and through. It may seem unlikely that greedy ghouls have slipped into the crypt behind the Army's back and emerged with gold worth $22,000,000,000 (never mind the small change). But that much gold wouldn't weigh much more than 20,000 ordinary tons, and it could be melted down into a cube not much more than 10 yards each way. Stealing it wouldn't be as hard as making off %vith the Empire State Building, for instance. But before Mr. Kearns leads a congressional gold rush to ascertain whether this g-old has been stolen, he should ask himself one question: Is he sure he wants to know the answer? As long as people think the gold is there, everybody is happy, relatively speaking. They buy and sell, produce and consume, work and play in the comfortable knowledge that the nation's economy is fairly sound.. If a congressional committee looked for the gold and fountt it gone, what would happen? In an atomic war, would the morning paper contain the tidings that U. S. airmen were over Russia the night before and six of their principal cities were missing? f Do You Remember? One Year Ago Vernon J. LaFave was installed, for his second term as commandant of the Naugatuck Valley Detachment, Marine Corps League. Mrs. Raymond C. Wooster was installed as president of the Ladies Auxiliary. Mrs. Oliver Lorson -was reelected regent of Kennedy Circle, Daughters of Isabella. 20 Years Ago John White scored three touchdowns as Roxbury Prep defeated Connecticut Junior College 70-0.

Is it correct, when one has finished eating, to hold up the napkin into its original creases before placing it back on the table? A. No; the napkin should be placed back on the table as it was used, and never folded. However, if one is a house guest and expects to have several meals, one should not expect a fresh napkin each time, but should fold it neatly each time and lay it beside the plate. Q. Should the water glasses be filled before the guests are summoned to the table for a luncheon? A. Yes; the glasses are filled and the butter is placed on the plates. Q. Is it all right to address the envelope of a letter to a man without using the title "Mr."? A. Never; "Mr." must be prefixed. Heads New Regim Look And Learn 1.
