Oann RATES 1 Month ...WJO '1 Tw Pub. A«**n OMA. N«wi|w]Mr PubHrtisrs SATUHPA*. OCT. J9. 1948 , Christinas Lights .-.-_- Xh« appearance of colorful reel streets of Na.uga.tuck presages and -white standards on ibe the Vpprbach of anoiher attractive display of Christmas lights —more of the same that gave us something the past two seasons that was at least a little better than the boasts of other valley communities. It's a feather in the cap of the Chamber of Commerce Retail Pi- vision, principal 'sponsors of the Christmas street lighting endeavor. The appearance of the borough streets, brilliantly lighted and festooned with appropriate Yule embellishments, was a major talking point in 1947, and IMS. We're glad the program is being repeated in 1949. Representatives of many other communities came to Naugatuck last year for the purpose of observing and learning the full details of Naugatuck's holiday grandeur. In all probability, replicas will adorn the streets of other cities and towns this year. But Naugatuck, we're confident, will be just that much ahead again, with an even more bril- I llant spectacle than before. It's a major effort that's required to provide the grand holiday effects, but the end Justifies the means. Congratulations to the sponsors of a fine community endeavor. Wtf hope they'll have all the assistance and cooperation essential, to the installation of a lighting layout'that again will focus wide area attention right here in Naugatuck. Named U.S. Judge MBS.

One Year Ago Naugatuck edged Now Haven Commercial, 7-0, for their first football win since Oct., 1945. Tariff Uncertainty President Truman has proclaimed a reduction of tariffs oh approximately 250 items of merchandise imported into this country. Congress has empowered him to slash tariffs as much as 50 per cent. Later other items will be added to the lis\,. the freedom of y>e American market' being extended to the. whole •world and not to certain favored nations. At the nejrt session ; of Congress it is proposed to ask for authority for the President to slash tariffs another 50 per cent, bringing total reduction from 1945 rates to 70 per" cent. There is much to be said for a program, which encourages Imports 'am a result America may export more..But It will not work out that -way. . Nations With -which America has negotiated: on tariff redaction give lip'service to reciprocity, but they resort to all sorts' of tricks -to keep' American goods out. The two; most common are Import quo-tag and licensing. The other nations' have agreed to some tariff reductions on American goods but these are largely meaningless. American tariff policy makers are looking 1 forward to the time when the world settles down and the principle; of. free world trade is generally practiced. That gpal in a mirage. It will soon be oeen how this country fares under a policy. of letting^ goods of otHer nations in .at low tariffs white AmtricwB, goods are all but.frozen out..iff other markets. Q.. Is it necessary to apologize for. a gift because it isn't expensive? A. No; in fact, it is bad form to make any mention of price when giving a grift. Q. Is it considered proper to name an adopted boy "Junior" A; This is perfectly all right. Oo*r Of Strikes 'SeyeoM .d&ys ago it was an- nounceil'that strikers in the coal, •teel "And aluminum industries w«r« losing mote than *68.0«O.OPO % i^|ek' in wkf«sl 'To date the miner* alone hav* ,lo»t more than |2c6rfX*,OC»' in wagc» during the striice which 'started less than tiro months ago. :T6 th«ae enormous sum* must b» added the" millions lost by the nation's economy in the value of production so badly needed. The total of wages' and production U at least\ *2,QOO,000,000 at the present time. This, of coursffi Is dead losa •which cannot be replaced. Months. years, will be required to restore .the financial 'situation of the strikers and their families, regardless of what they may gate through strikes. As 'for the national Economy, it is luffering a setback which will be felt for a long time. All thi-3 at a time .when the. country was headed tor a period of continued prosperity. Under a form of government in which all the people are supposed • to have equal rights, industry Is j unable to operate, largely for the I reason government itself lacks I the willingness to mediate the differences fairly and without bias, It has become a war of class against class In which' the whole . nation suffers.

Dr. Martin Luther nailed the 95 Theses or sentences on the door of the Castle church in Wittenberg in which he declared that the church should observe and teach only those doctrines which were contained in the Bible. Maintaining that salvation is found alone in_ Christ Jesus and not by any merits of our own. Luther established a re-discovered doctrine of which many people were ignorant. One of his passages of the reinstated doctrine of justification :iy grace through faith, was, "By race are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2,8). The Bible was Luther's sole guide in the Reformation, and remains the only guide of the Lutheran church in teaching and prac- ,ice.
