Oct. 28 — (UP) _ Former Republican Governor James C. Shannon believes the election in Bridgeport next month is of statewide importance. In a radio address, He said Governor Bowles must smash Fairfield County's solid resistance in order to win in 1950. In going to bat for the GOP ticket in Bridgeport, the former governor criticized the Democrats as well as the Socialists who have controlled the Park City for the past 16 years. Shannon calls the Democratic ticket the "suicide squad" because he believes it hasn't a chance of winning- at the polls Nov. 8. He charged that the Democratic candidates are being used as a front by what he calls "The Ada-Wallace Gang". The Socialists-j^he says — have been in power too long. Repeating the battle cry of i the unsuccessful Republican Parlv last year, Shannon said, "its time for a change."

We made short work of the all important first page. The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle used the same type dress, so we shot its Page One of that morning to the composing room with advice that the printers change the date lines. The issue was a wow. Nevertheless, as evidence of how little the "damned fools downstairs" knew about the job of the "damned fools upstairs," Mr. Soper, the boss, said wo got out the best first page The Gazette had printed in years, and Rave us a raise. I think it was a dollar a week. Now, I don't want any reader to suspect that such chicanery goes on today. As we old birds wander among the genuine specialists who preside over the many departments of the modern newspaper, we wonder how we ever stuck in the newspaper business. And as- they listen to us they must be filled with even greater wonder. WE MOVED UP FAST in the paste pot era.

It was in great detail as to valorous deeds of the volunteer firemen and loss of the Rebckahs' paraphernalia in their lodge rooms. At the very end a brief paragraph revealed that an unnamed man had been trapped on the top floor, had jumped from a window and "landed on a rainbarrel, completely demolishing the barrel." Period, and end of story. Though it was unauthorized use of the telephone, I called the correspondent. "What happened to the man who jumped on the barrel?" I asked him. "I am saving that for tomorrow," replied our vigilant representative. "But what happened to him?" I persisted. "Oh, he was killed." said Penn Yan's Arthur Brisbane.
