Newipaper Pabll»her» Aai'p THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1S49 Now Or Never The tocsin has been sounded and Naugatuck will either respond or lose, perhaps for all time, the opportunity of having a National Guard armory — to be used for recreational as -well as military purposes. Federal approval has been given for the construction of a $50,000 National Guard garage in the borough. A furore over preserving a beauty mark in an otherwise ugly area has been quieted by refusal of the Army to accept a proposed Riverside Drive site. Flood hazards are too great in the area is the decree of the engineers. Perhaps they're right. In any case, the National Guard has told Naugatuck, in effect: "Give us the land and we'll give you a garage. The garage will be the opening wedge for eventual construction of an armory. Both are needed in Naugatuck." _ National Guard officials have also stressed the urgency of moving ahead with the authorized construction. If Naugatuck is in doubt about wanting the structure another community will jump at the offer. We think Rep. Adam Mengacci has done a remarkably fine job for Naugatuck in his sincere and aggressive approach to a situation that could develop into a real community asset. His main purpose, from the start, has been the acquisition of an armory that would double in brass as a community auditorium. Need we mention again the need of an auditorium? The issue is now one that must be resolved by the Board of Warden and Burgesses, perhaps with .the assistance of agencies intended to promote community development and progress. Of this we're certain: If the zeal and sincerity manifested by Rep. Mengacci are nearly duplicated by those now charged with the responsibility of making the final decision—garage or no garage, armory or no armory—steps will be taken post-haste to make available the land required by the National Guard. In the encouragement of a pro-gram of swift compliance with the request at hand, we're quite confident that refusal of local cooperation now will slam the door on any future prospects of armory construction. Company F, "Naugatuck's Own" would be a loser. But the Borough of Naugatuck would incur the heavier and more painful loss. The News has long been on record in favor of a community auditorium. A National Guard auditorium might make a fair substitute pending a day of greater fortune. If. by making land available for a garage now the borough enhances its possibilities of eventually gaining an armory, we want to be firmly on record as recommending that course of action. An IQ Bombshell In the minds of many laymen there has lurked an uneasiness about the absolute value of IQ tests. That uneasiness has been based upon fear lest something in addition to mental ability was being evaluated, with the consequence that relative intelligence often was far from being precisely determined. Now comes Dr. Ernest A. Haggard, professor of psychology at the University of Chicago, with the statement before 350 educators at a conference sponsored by the Educational Testing Service that IQ tests are "biased." Yep, that's what the man said. Dr. Haggard's thesis, as might have been guessed, is that these tests have not been formulated in a fashion to test intelligence, as such, of children "in the lower socio-economic groups." It is reassuring to have this "expert" emphasize the fact that studies have shown "no demonstrable difference in the inheritance of mental abilities in different socio-economic groups." But if that is a fact, why do IQ tests need revising? It's because of what pupils eat, it seems. The professor says that nutritional differences of poor children affect the nervous system "and other bodily tissues," and often there is "emotional deadening" and "loss of willingness to respond." Inversely children of "privileged or middle-class homes receive a range of experiences and acquire range of motivations which prepare -them much more adequately for favorable performance on our present type of intelligence tests than is the case with lower-class children.'" Well, there it is. Right out of the professor's mouth. An Event Of Interest Vice president Alben Barklcy and Mrs. Carleton Hadley of St. Louis are to be married on November IS. culmination of a romance which has been in the news for days and days, because of the prominence of the contracting parties. The guests will undoubtedly be made up of some of the top men in the administration. The affairs of state will have to wait until the couple arc safely married and on their honeymoon. There will be no end of pictures, and columns of descriptions of what the bride wore, always of great interest to the women. Then the new Mrs. Barkley will take her place in official Washington society and be all but forgotten so far as newspaper readers are concerned. In spite of all this publicity and hurrah it will be just another marriage between two worthy people, both entitled to whatever happiness the union may bring. They -will have the best wishes of the American people, for marriage IH an universal innUtiiUon designed to bring joy to those of all classes. Turkeys arc cheaper. Can't the Washington planners do something about that? Moon may not be made out of green cheese, but some chisolers think the U. S. Treasury is an inexhaustible source of green Gs. A Colorado woman has baked biscuits every morning for 61 years. Men should direct the attention of their wives to this item. Do You Remember?
