OCTOBER 24, 1949 Commiinity Service Community service benefitting Naugatuck has been recognized by the State Grange with the presentation of first prize in its annual service competition to the Beacon Valley Grange of Naugatuck. Last Friday night in Foot Guard Hall. Hartford, a representative of the Beacon Valley Grange was called forward to receive th» award, .a $200 U. S. Savings Bond. What does it represent? All Naugatuck knows. The Beacon Valley Grange Park and Recreation Center has been dedicated as a community area with facilities for swimming, baseball and softball, pic- nicing. and all the outdoor attractions city folk travel miles to appreciate during the summer months. The 20-acre tract, well-seeded and abundantly set out with trees, provides Naugatuck. under Grange jurisdiction, a much-needed recreation area. It has been made available entirely through the civic-minded and community-conscious members and officers of the Grange who first provided the land, then •went to work to carve out the facilities. The State Grange, has chosen wisely in naming the Beacon Valley Grange project outstanding in Connecticut. Naugatuck has long known its value, but .his fine, higher echelon recognition serves as new inspiration lo the Grange and its boosters. Humors In The Balkans The Balkans appear . to have fcacome an area of coincidence : 3 well as conflict. No sooner t'.aes the "free" revolt expire in Greece than an equally "free" revolt is reported in the offing f >r Tugoslavia. In both cases the a Ijective "free" may be defined c.3 ''pro-Soviet, i.e., that which E.TVCS the policy of the Kremlin." Russia's interest in the Greek insurrection seems to have ' iminished in proportion to her titter involvement with the recalcitrant Tito of Yugoslavia., ^ .Tien Moscow agreed to a UN conciliation committee for the Creek dispute, it was generally rccepted that the steam had been •.aken out of the Communist. ; ressure against Athens, despite the fact that Russian demands till complicate the work of that committee. Hence it was no surprise when the "free Greek government*' announced that "for the time being" it intended to quit fighting after three and a half years of military action against the "monarcho-fascist" and the "Anglo-American imperialists". Simultaneously the State Department disclosed and thus gave some weight to rumors that a revolt against Tito would begin within 60 days in Tugoslavia. Reports reaching Washington indicated that the guerilla warfare which had harassed the anti-Sovie^ Athens government would now be shifted against the anti-Soviet regime in Belgrade. The "free peoples of Yugoslavia," it -was said, would draw their support from the familiar pro-Soviet sources of Rumania, Bulgaria and Albania, with perhaps an assist from Hungary. But Tito is an old hand at this game, having himself provided refuge and reinforcements to the Greek rebels in other days. So it is doubtful if the Yugoslav dictator, with his considerable army, would have the same compunction for foreign frontiers that was shown by the Athens regime. Therein lies the danger of international conflict in the Balkans today. No sooner la the Greek threat averted than there arises another even more dangerous. Rivalry Must Cease When the present shooting is over in Washington and the issue decided-as must be the case ««neti»e-the Army, Navy and Air Force wUl owe it to the country to buck!e down to business and g,ve the nation in fact those strong ramparts It needs in its hour of possible peril Perhaps it is too much to expect that a,l the old animodo" can be cast aside and the wounds quickly healed, but certainly the ««ort shou ld be made. To £l t0 Weaken the At the moment there is no evi- oence that the unification voted t» Congress has resulted in cither unity or military efficiency. Leaders of both the Navy and the Marine Corps have testified that their services are being slowly destroyed. Certainly this does not reflect the will of the American people. The duty of Congress is clear. It is to determine the rights and wrongs of the caee and to take such measures as may be necessary. In these times the country cannot afford to let its military establishment be a house divided. The Harvest Year Good harvest weather has provided the nation its second largest crop year in history, with a record supply of corn. And ideal conditions for wheat seeding are general in the Great Plains area, promising another record small-grain harvest in 1950. Heavy current yields, added to substantial carryovers, has resulted in a marketing (problem. Under price subsidies the government is- buying and storing crops as never before to sustain •prices. The second largest harvest ift history provides ample supplies of food for the American people, although not at lower prices, with many boatloads of government-bought staples to be shipped to other countries. These blessings are the result of application of brain and brawn by American farmers. Those who share in the bounty should give thanks they are citizens of a land where all this is possible. SHmLEY'S DIVOKCE Shirley Temjple's tearful plea that she meant to make her marriage work, but that it was impossible, would be better received if it came from an area where divorce is the exception rather than the rule. The country has become convinced that Hollywood people don't mean to or haven't the capacity to make marriage. So Shirley sat and tapp.ed her foot in night clubs while John visited hU friends at other tables. That's undoubtedly mental cruelty to a girl who's been spoiled from babyhood by too much attention. But scores of millions of wives in this country have undergone mental cruelty that makes Shirley's feeble plaint resemble happiness. They didn't rush to the lawyers but suffered while they tried to work it out, being mindful of their children and their family responsibilities. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Joyce Ann Kanehl was elected president of the Methodist Youth Fellowship. Mrs. Richard Ostrom, president, entertained members of the Past President's club of the Ladies' Auxiliary', Crusader Post, V. F. W, 20 Years Ago Miss Clara Campbell, librarian of the Whittemore Memorial library, was guest Speaker before a meeting of the Naugatuck Rotary Club. Clarence Smith, a former resident, was visiting with friends in the borough. THE CLOCK Talk of police radio cars has caused some policemen to give thought to the possibility of a ipolice photographic department similar to that of the State Police and larger cities, but scaled down to size for the borough. Police Chief John .1. Gormley, talking about Naugatuck's pleasant situation in the present state water shortage, recalls working one summer, several years ago on construction of the Bethany reservoir. Mr. and Mrs. Norman Wood have returned to the borough from Whitefield, N. H., where they attended a conference of the Bank Association of Connecticut...the return trip was made through Vermont.

Her husband Bob gave her a ride up-town with the carriage ....they live on Osbornc road, quite a hike for pushing a baby carriage. Bill Leuchars, New street, has learned that instead of being stung by a bee as first believed, he was bitten by a banana spider. .. .as a result a severe infection set in his Jright little finger. Members of the Methodist church are making elaborate plans for their annual Country Fair to be held at the church Nov 3 and 4. . . .all sorts of entertainment is being arranged along with a turkey dinner, card party and various booths.

Mrs. James Healy, Mrs. Henry Bchl- man, Mrs. Nellie Scully, Mrs. Oscar Wirth, Mrs. Rose Flanigan, Mrs. John J. Malik, Mrs. Bernard Sullivan.

Mrs. P. is the former Florence Skibinski, Waterbury. Bobby Burns, son of Mr. and Mrs Bob Burns of May street, will be three years old tomorrow ... .Norman Anderson, son of Mr. and. Mrs. F. O.

Charlie Ludolph, public relations chief for the Chemical plant hastens to point out that those Koloc-treated shirts we've been saying so many nice things about are shrink-'.plroof. . . .But they are not water-proof as one ot our items alleged....

Many people are wondering why police permit so many sales firms to come into the borough without a thorough check of their character and credentials . . . one family reports having an in- toxicatftd coupon-premium salesman come into their home and make himself right at home . . . high pressure salesmen who claim not to be high pressure salesmen are often annoying with their tactics.
