Newapaper Publisher* Aro'n WEDNESDAY, NOV. 9, 1949 Foley Favored The Board of Education has served notice that action will be taken tomorrow to fill the post of principal of the Kaugatuck High School. Second in importance in the Naugatuck school system only to the superintendent, the High School principalship Is an office requiring more than the highest standards of ability and achievement in the related modern education fields. The High School principal today in Naugatuck must at once be educator, administrator, counsellor and instructor— all in the one office. Indeed, Naugatuck has been fortunate these past several years in the identities and abilities of those able and conscientious men who have been principals — and acting principal. In all the years of its outpourings of talent and learning, Naugatuck High School has never before boasted a principal as beloved among students and faculty as the man now charged with the responsibilities of that office. A member of the faculty from 1932, he came back to the school of his secondary education with a truly remarkable record of accomplishment, both in scholastic and athletic attainments. A brilliant student and superb athlete, he was, at Catholic University the pride of professor and coach. These same characteristics, topped off with a flair for dry humor, a gracious manner and a quiet, firm demeanor, in school and out, have endeared him to students and teachers alike. And without relaxation of the scholastic requirements. As acting principal of Naugatuck High School since 1947, he has proved, eminently, that he has the qualifications necessary to the fulfillment of the office. The Board of Education here has an opportunity to gain a new era of prestige and public confidence. The appointment of Raymond Kirwln Foley as principal of Naugatuck High School would have the wholehearted approval of all acquainted with his qualifications and interested in the capable administration of NHS. The appointment of Mr. Foley to the position he has occupied in acting capacity, and with distinction, would be one action of the Board of Education that •would occasion favorable reaction on B. unanimous scale. Super-Snyder Watertury's able and popular Mayor Raymond E. Snyder has been returned to office by the most overwhelming plurality ever accorded a Waterbury candidate, Republican or Democrat. The magnitude of the Republican victory proved surprising even to^ the most hopeful GOP prognosticator, and pleasantly so. The opposite, of course, was true in the case of the Democrats who helped defeat themselves and added to the margin of Republican victory by engaging in a pre- election primary fight that had no precedent for lingering bitterness. But the 18,544 plurality with which Waterbury has honored Mayor Snyder and his ticket is a personal tribute to a Republican executive who has outshone each of his associates and all of his opponents in the Waterbury political arena. He bids fair to take on larger area in the immediate future if his political ambitions are thus inclined. The Waterbury election scene bears striking resemblance to'the recent Naugatuck picture. Aided by Democrat and Republican alike, Mayor Raymond E. Snyder seems to be doing in Waterbury what Warden Harry L. Carter has dona in Naugatuck—but on a larger scale. Quest For Taxes When it comes to taxes the American people may as well abandon hope they are to be lowered, or that certain levies may be avoided. It has been the practice of some cigarette smokers residing in states that had a sales tax on cigarettes to buy from mail order houses in other states and avoid that much of the tax. This was in exercise of their rights as free Americans. According to a recent survey, the neat sum of $20,000,000 was kept from the politicians in that manner. But, unless the Supreme Court thwarts the politicians, this right of Americans to buy where they please is to be no more. Congress passed a law and —President T r u man - signed it, which forces concerns selling cigarettes in interstate commerce to furnish tax commissars of each state where they have customers with a complete list of those receiving such goods during the previous month. The purpose, of course, is to fofrce payment of the tax. The new law will afreet 38 states. Ten states have *io state taxes on cigarettes. State taxes on cigarettes a recent innovation and which are in addition to the huge federal tax of nine cents a pack, range from one cent a package to as high as eight cents. Pennsylvania with a four-sent tax imposed by the present governor, collected more than $78,000,000 last year and frequently posts gestapo agents at state borders to search automobiles entering the state for possible contraband smokes. Alexander the Great sighed for more worlds -to conquer. Politicians will seek more taxes to levy as long as a taxpayer retains a dollar. Do You Remember?
