His other son, Jerry, is as well known to Naugatuck residents as his father. An outstanding athlete and scholar at Naugatuck High school and now a freshman at Yale university, Jerry was Governor of the Hi-Y Youth and Government 'program at Hartford last spring, where he conducted himself in a manner which brought praise and honor not only to himself and his family, but to all Naugatuck as well. Mr. and Mn3. Labriola also had five other children, all of whom died very young. First elected president of. the Cristoforo Colombo Society in 1917, he also held the post in 1918, 1922, 1927, 1938, 1948 and again this year. He has alsoj been secretary, treasurer and a trustee - of the club on .several different occasions during his 34 years of membership. The society was incorporated in 1902 as a "Benevolent, charitable and mutual succor" organization, "to aid and assist each other member when in distress—to succor and aid the families, widows, and orphans of each member when in ;want." These things have been carried out quietly ever since and Patsy and all the other members hope to seo them carried out for many years to .come. New Home The site of the new home was .•purchased in 1936 when it was found that the old building, also on South Main street, would soon be too small. Pla.ns for the new home were drawn up, but it was found that construction tit the time would bo too costly so the matter was tabled. Eleven year.= later, in 1947, another committee was appointed to investigate the possibility of building. Again the project was put off because of lack of funds. Last year, when Patsy was elected president, he made a .pledge that his foremci'i't project during hi? term of office would be to .=ee that the home was constructed. He drew up several sets of plans for a home which he submitted to the group. They finally decided upon one and with Patsy's spirit keeping them going, set about thr construction. Most ol* the work on the building- was contracted out, but members donating their time, contributed a great deal toward making their new home an actuality. After seven'and a half months of hard labor, their dream was realized. The home was completed. In recognition of the work Patsy did in getting the project rolling, keeping it rolling and supervising the actual construction, members have name him general manager of the club. Patsy points out that the building was not built for himself and the members of his own generation, but for the younger generation and the generations to come. Already many young men have been accepted into membership and many more are expected to join within the near future. The older members of the society will undoubtedly derive a grea't deal of pleasure from the club, but they realize that it will be the younger members who will obtain most of its benefits. They are proud of the building and proud of the fact that they are able to leave the building to the young men who will eventually take over the reins of the society. The club will stand as a lasting monument to Patsy and the men like him who devoted so many years in bringing it about. Now that the club is completed, Patsy plans to devote a little more time to his real estate business, which went unheeded during the construction period. This does not mean, however, that he plans to shirk any of his duties as president of the society. On the contrary, he plans to redouble his efforts and raise the Cristoforo Colombo Society to a spot among the foremost, organizations in the borough.

NEWS Reader Protests Recent Criticism Of NEWS By Tesimonial Speaker Nov, 11, 1949. Editor of THE NEWS, Naug-atuck, Conn. Dear Sir: Last night's paper quoted a speaker at the testimonial dinner to Mr. Rodenbach, as saying that you couldn't believe what you read in :he NEWS anyway.... lest the NEWS get the idea that perhaps all the good it has done goes unheeded, may I take a few lines to set the speaker straight? First of all, referring directly to :he comment on the sale of a factory by Mr. Rodenbach. The Re- nublican Town committee took more :han two months to arrange a tes- 'imonial which ontallcd getting a place to hold it, and arranging for about 100 meals. Surely a big factory like that one owned by Mr. Rodenbach cannot be disposed of so quickly. And even if Mr. Rodenbach has no intention of selling the plant, the indication that he might sell probably came from one of those close to the Republican committee, and not as a figment of the imagination of the reporter who wrote the story. It is just that whoever started the story can hide,, behind the fact that he was "misunderstood," and take potshots at a newspaper for "being wrong." There have been numerous instances during -Jie past few years when the NEWS was branded as utterly wrong in its reports, only to find out that they knew what they were writing about. There was the case of a police car bought without permission of the voters, to mention one. The NEWS has done a wonderful job for the borough. It has backed ventures that were worthy, at times at a financial cost that would not be aided by private contributions. It has kept town officials in check, lest they be found to be overstepping their bounds as public officials. It has informed the voters impartially of the qualifications of both Republican and Democrat candidates in elections. It has kept the public informed when issues arose that might be misinterpreted by some to reach their selfish goal. The NEWS has remained human and considerate by refraining from playing up inci- dents that in themselves would be exploited for all they were worth by papers which thrive on smut. It has cooperated fully with organizations of the borough in promoting projects of these groups, which in turn has done much good for the town. Surely a paper which has done all this does not deserve a slanderous comment as the one quoted by Mr. Thompson, even though he may have thought it humorous at the time. Lest this be misconstrued as a nolitical letter, or a personal squabble with Mr. Thompson, I might add that I do not know the gentleman personally, nor do I vote strictly for his opposition party during the elections. My only reason for writing is that a wrong has been done, I think, and in a small way perhaps it can be righted with this letter. Thank you for your time. Let's Be Fair C. J. Waskowicz. (Editor's Note—Thank you, Mr. Waskowicz. We do try to be fair. Just for the record, we wish to point out that we never reported that Mr. Rodenbach would sell his plant. We did, however, report that Mr. Rodenbach refused either to confirm or deny a report circulated prominently in the borough that he was planning to sell. The report started about the same time The NEWS reported that Mr. Rodenbach was moving to Litchfield, and would- resign as Republican Town Committee chairman. We quoted Mr. Thompson's criticism just as he gave it.) How To Play CANASTA WILLIAM E. McKENNEY America's Card Authority ARTICLE NO. 6 USE TWO DECKS AN» FOT7R JOKERS Now that -you have learned 'Canasta's besic elements and ihe method of scoring, you are ready to begin play. Canasta requires two reg'Jla- "leeks of 52 cards each, plus four iokers—no matter how many are nlaying. (You will find that uomc nlayers are now using Ihree or nven four decks. Whenever a new ",nme of thia kind, comes out, there bound to be a great many variations—but the rules given in this booklet are the basic rules as the came is played throughout the nation.) I will explain the four-handed ™sme first. In cutting for partners and seats, the ace ranks high and the deuo,^ low. If a player draws a .iolter. he puts it to one side and draws another card. The player on the right of the dealer shuffles, but the dealer a!so nay shuffle the pack. The player an the right of the dealer mu:it cut the cards. Tables are arrange-! as in bridge, by selection.of partners or by cutting for partners. The cards are dealt to each play. --• one at a time. After each player l;as received 11 cards the deck is placed on the table preferably in a box or tray and becomes the stock pile. The top card of the stock pile is turned over and placed in another box or tray and this iile is referred to as the pack or discard pile.

The joker, deuce or red trey that has been slid under the edge of the box containing the pack signifies that the pack is frozen.
