For more than an hour yesterday, Harry E. Humphreys, Jr., a •short man of athletic build, whose youngish appearance belies his position and importance In industry, spokn frankly with the press about 'he subject dearest to his heart: The U.

Bittle, who also took active part in the interview, and flanked by the Chemical and Synthetic plant heads, Philip Rico nnd Donald McCollum, Mr. Humphreys alternately puffed ".almly at a big cigar, smiled pleasantly beneath a spreading moustache and gave out with news— some fresh, some old—nearly all good. On the subject of employment the balding Rubber Co. executive, •vho has served us Mayor of Scarsdale, N.

"I have told the stockholders, and J don't mind re]>catlng that the 3 1-2 per cent increase in the lire prices we fixed was not enough." "Tires represent one-half of our business and they affeot our whole profit tone," he continued. He Indicated that the tire problem had much to do with the reduced dividend figure recently effected In line with a sound fiscal policy. And at thin juncture ho voiced the hope that the company would always be privileged to effect its own fiscal policies without government control, Devaluation In answer to a question he said that the company has been hit by the English pound devaluation be- cuUHe the largest foreign holdings arc in Canada.

Little hope is .Jecn by iborough officials for 'the passage of tho measure now before the House of Representatives. Several Naugatuck residents weru In Hartford yesterday afternoon to attend the public hearing-, but bccaure of an extension of- hearing time on larger measures concerning educational grants, tho local bill was not heard until today. Atty. Talibot was among the local delegation, yesterday which also included Superintendent of School! Harold E. Chittend'en, Dr. J. Nelson Judy, chairman of the board of education and head of the school building committee, and Walter Booth, representing the Salem School Parent-Teacher association. Although it was believed to have been amended during the original session of the General Assembly, the Naugatuck legislation remains as It wa» first Introduced by State Representatives Adam Mongacci and M. Leonard 'Calne, Jr., and calls for n. $200,000 state aid grand in building local achoota. The amended measure wa» to h/ivo provided for $160,000 or $KO,OOff each for the three new schools now under construction. Republican leaders in tho state are of the opinion that the administration legislation calling: for bond issrues will not bo passed, and the OOP's proposals appear to be headed for certain veto. The Republicans (pHan to again pass Its former $7,800,000 measure for education, which was vetoed by the governor. Another plan'feeing discussed in the state capltol calls for the creation of a six man board to decide what towns are in need of financial assistance In tho construction of school 'bulldlngw. It Is reported that six or seven towns In tho state are In financial need, and Naugatuck Is not Included in the number.

Exchange Club, Community Group Offered Property The Naugatuck Exchange club, with" the cooperation of the Union City Community club and residents of the area, will &ponBor n. Union City Little League this year. Plans for the new league -were discussed at last night's meeting of the Community cluto with representatives of the Exchange club. Thomas Ratklewlch, 376 North Main street, a Union City resident nnd a member of the Exchange club, was elected general chairman of the league, and u'iH be assisted by Frank Neary, a' member of the Union City club. PetPr Wisloski .president of the Exchange club told the group that "because "we know Union City is lacking terribly in recreational facilities for youngsters and w<? are willing: to g-o along- with the request of the Community club to give our help in any way possible to help provide a Little League in Union City." The Community club voted to accept the sponsorship of.the Exchange club in the project Negotiations for a stadium site have already been started with tho Rev. O. H.

Folcy Little Le.-igue. Instead, by mutual cooperation and understanding we will build the Naugatuck Little n^ue project into a greater or- ranlzatlon, affording the opportun- ty to play organized baseball to more boys than is now /possible. The teams of both league* will play each other at both stadiums." H e continued by saying, "the aims of the Exchange club U to promote activities for the bine- It of the community. One Len«ue can only permit n certain number of boys to play, while other,* must stay in the background. This new league will permit twice as many boys to play ball next season as we had plRyimr last summer." "I am sure the organization of a Little League in Union City will bring- the residents of this are* and the merchants, closer to Nau- fiatuck." Mr. Wfiilockl said. Leo Moraskt, a Union City businessman said at the meeting "1 can see no reason why all of the peolpJc of Union City cannot work together to make the Little League a success here." Others at the meeting expressed similar opinions. Second Ward Burge«s William Rado, a member of the Exchange club said that he is In favor of the Union City League nnd hopes that after a successful 1950 season for both leagues, that attention will be turned to forming a third league for the East Side and Little Italy sections of the boroujfh.

Ailv. full house last night, but the con- census of opinion of the audience was split as to the choice of play for the opening- show of the 184960 season vl the local drama group In St. Michael's parish house. Frankly speahng, "Hovcan Can Walt" was disappointing in view of past performnaces of Jack Conway's Playmakers. The show is slow from the very beginning, and only occasionally does tho tempo pick up. A motion picture was adapted from the play and was entertaining, but then, amazing things can bo done In the films, particularly when dealing with the supernatural. The entire cost did a commendable job last night. They worked hard, and 1f It hadn't been for Charlie Ludolph's strenuous activity, the show would have fallen apart. There are laughs in the show, and the audience responded In the proper places, but It wasn't the hearty roar of past years. Mel Engelstad did a great deal In keeping the show alive as Messenger 7013. ME. Ludolph. who Is always top» when it comes to Little Theater performances, held the lead role in the three-act comedy-fantasy. ^ What held up tho production considerably was the changing of room scene was a nifty as Is always seen, when executed by the Playmakers. The usual "boy gets girl" plot isnt' too strong, but again, that's the playwright's fault. The show broke at 11:20, which Is about an hour after the usual time. Jack Conway worked hard and diligently In directing this show, but it's difficult to many to agree with his selection. In the opinion of this writer, it seems too bad that such a brilliant array of actors and actresses had to be bogged down In a sluggish show. Despite everything we're still 100 por cent for the Playmakcri*. because they've proven they have the stuff that makes for good showmanship regardless of the type of play. The curtain goes up again tonight at 8:30 o'clock for the second night run of the production, with others in the cast not heretofore mentioned being Tom Lee, Tom Pace, Joe Donahue, Betty Melbourne, Pat Hess, Frank Molen. Judy Conway, Janls Ncprash, Betty Adams, George Williams, Steve Sturdevant. Warren Hess and Hysell Brooks. (DMB) —Innore your rMlliI'm hnllk tkli wui- t*r. Cell V»UK.
