TRUCKS ABE OMJ Average age of trucks on U. S. highways is 7.8 years, compared with 5.6 years in 1941. Playing With Fire Everybody agrees that the best way to get people to start buying again is to bring prices down . . . or at least, keep them from going up any higher. And everybody agrees that you can't increase costs if prices are to come down. Everybody agrees . .. . . . except when you get down to cases. Raising wages means raising costs. All right then, don't raise wages, just increase pensions, bonuses, paid holidays, paid vacations . . . But that's really laying it on. You see, there's no production in return for the money the company pays out in fringe benefits. So pensions or health insurance or what-hqve-you just means upping costs without increasing production or improving the product. Last year, Naugatuck Valley companies paid an average of 15!/2 cents per hour, per employee in fringe benefits. Over the year, that came to $310 per employee. That means that a company with 1000 employees paid out $310,000 for which it got no production. In 1949, Naugatuck Valley companies are paying 20% cents an hour per employee for fringe benefits. And now you hear talk of increasing fringe benefits by another lOc per hour, per employee. That's no way to bring prices down. When the object is to put the fire out, you don't pour on fuel.

United Church News A meeting of the Sunday school teachers of United Church will be hefa tomorrow evening at 7:30 at the church, according to Supt. Harry Lobdell. The meeting of the Ladies' Aid Society of the church, scheduled for Thursday afternoon at the church, has been postponed until Thursday afternoon, Nov. 10, it was announced today by Mrs. Charlotte Koerber, president. Mrs. Koerber also announced that the Ladies' Aid will have a booth at the -supper and bazaar sponsored by the Loyal Daughters, Saturday night in the church hall. Mrs. Frank Clark and Mrs. Koerber will be in charge of the booth. Juring his entire career he was ooked upon as one of the key people of the reclaiming plant or- anization. In those cai'ly days .here was -very little scientific con- rol of operations and the success of the business depended to , a arge extent on the skill and experience of men such as John Blomquist. The older people now associated with the Naugatuck Chemical recall that he was practically a "walking encyclopedia" of nformatioii on the reclaiming operations since he carried in several- pockets collections of reference notes and production | records. During those early years he worked under such men as W. T. Rodenbach, L. C. Warner, Joseph Hall, E. A. Anderson, and others who made conspicuous contribu- ions to the Industrial development of Naugatuck. Mr. Blomquist will always be remembered for his exceptionally fine character, kindly manner and outstanding competence as a. production supervisor. At the time of his retirement he was General Mill Room Foreman of the Rubber Regenerating Company, n. position which he held for 17 years. In this position he earned and kept the warm regard and sincere respect of all those with whom he associated. During his latter years he had the satisfaction of seeing his son Oscar become a key member of the supervisory staff of the reclaiming organization and so knew that the Blomquist name would continue to be connected with the industry which he, the father, helped to establish. Granted Discharge In Waterbury Court Dr. N. A, Towne, 39,- of 297 Church street, was granted a discharge on a charge of driving while under the influence of liquor when he appeared before Judge John A. Membrino in Waterbury City Court today.
