Local management is pressing on the building problem, but all I can tell you is that some day we'll get to them." Mr. Humphreys asked Mr. Bittle to answer a question concerning the significance of tho leaao on the Whittomore building on Church street as office quarters. "We needed more space," said Mr. Bittle. -"Have needed it for a long time, as you all know." He added that some company Miles people now located In Now York offices would be assigned to Ihc new Nnugatuck quarters, along ith tho wholesale sales organlza- on now located in the centra! of- ce. The head of the sponge rub- division will also have an of- ce in the new quarters, with the ales administration to be housed nd organized in an improved sta- us. "With the increased sales actlvl- cs of the Footwear Division, we ave been cramped for space," he dded. In all, he said, about 20 employes, ncludlng some from the outside nd some to be hired here, would e placed in Whlttemore building ffices. The DuPonts Asked about the connection be- wen the duPonts and the U. S. Rubber Co., in veiled connection 'ith the anti-trust suit filed by the overnmcnt against the company, Humphreys asserted that the DuPonts first acquired shares In J. S. Rubber !r,, fhf open market n 1928 or 1927. "Some members at tho family nd Ideas that the company management at thai time was 1 not what It should have bcecn" ho add- d. They bought about 15 per cent if the stock in the open market. He'emphasized, however, that the DnPont company has no aonnoc- ion with the U. S. Rubber Co. "In the 1930's the U. S. Rubber lo. was put on Its feet financially," he continued, "and the DuPonts might bo charged with having put he company on Its feet." Referring to the DuPont Com- mny. he asserted that "actually wo are In competition with them in several lines." And he contended hat "we do bettor than they In tho •ubber chemicals effort." The DuPont family, he said, only exercised their right of ownership ESCAPES T,uclieck, Germany—An aged German who ban Juflt returned 'home after 30 years us a Ru«- sliin primmer of war Hay* the Soviet* still hold 20,0(10 Germa captured In the IIrat "World war.

Quite obviously, Mr. Humphreys looked through hits horn-rinrimec glasses wtth great favor upon his company's three big plants In Nau ArdiioiiH Day He spent, an arduous day, huidlini? through the countless departments of Footwear, Chemical and Syn-) thetic divisions, shaking hands with executives, nodding to employes, chatting with the retired old-timers assembled for the occasion, and lecturing to supervisory personnel In forum. But It was a day well spent. Take it from ona who spoke with Mr. Humphreys — and with several of the many he impressed favorably In his quick visit to Naugatuck, cradle of the rubber Industry. Wsease Change In 30 Years Shows Different Demand The occurrence, prevalence, spread and final control of many communicable diseases in Connecticut during the past 30 years is fhown by the change in demand for laboratory diagnoatls work, said D. Evelyn West, Chief, liivl- ilon of Diagnostic Microbiology In he November Connecticut Health Bulletin. For example, examination of specimens for diphtheria, glan- ders, malaria, pneumonia, rabies nnd typhoid appear on ;.he record* in 1018. Ey 1948, there were considerably lower or no specimens for these diseases and most 'of Ihc laboratory work done on them was for preventive purposes. Gonorrhea has been an ever Drcsent name on our list, said Miss West, although the present volume of specimens submitted for examination for this disen,se probably shows greater use of laboratory diagnosis by the physician, rather than increase In incidence of the disease as the percentages of positives has fallen. The increase In paristology specimens from none in 1918 to 3,482 in 1948 shows an increased awareness of Connecticut physicians to infections caused by parasitic worms and protozoa. One of the more recent diagnostic tests is the routine examination for Trich6monas vaginulis on all specimens received for gonorrhea examinations. Results of these tests imve averaged 21 per cent positive for females and 5 per cent positive for males. Although these figures do not show the exact incidence of this infection, they indicate thnt. it l» fairly widespread In Connecticut. Brucellosis or unduiant fever is her disease which Is comparatively new in the laboratory files. There were no records of it in 1918, while 9,453 specimens were tested In 1948. Tuberculosis Is an old disease and an old problem, said Miss West. Until the problems > of its control are solved, laboratory workers must expect ,to devote a large amount of time Itl-alding diagnosis.

A Little Ruffled Only once during the Interview did Mr. Humphreys approach tho point at bo.lng ruffled and thnt was when a Naugatuek native asked him what was being done about the "offensive odors" from the Naugatuck Chemical Co. "What do you want us to do," he countered, "tnko up our plant and move It to another place?" But he recovered his composure quickly with n nod to Plant Manager Rico who pointed out that the firm "wa« greatly concerned" with the problem of odors, with a program of correction constantly under study. "Facilities have been installed which have worked noticeable improvement," he said, "but it's something that can't bo corrected overnight. It takes a lot of study and a lot of money. He also contended that the Chemical Co. was in a situation of constant operation changes affecting now products, and each new product adds a new problem. "We have done much more than anyone readily appreciates," he said, on tho subject of odor control. A l{«spon*lblllty Said Mr. Humphreys, "Our responsibility, of course, IH to stop thorn If we can." nonplte a prediction thnt natural and synthetic rubber connumptlon will bo loss in 1050 than In 1949 he Naugntuck .Synthetic production program will not be cut, he said. He pointed out that fewer tiros would bo produced next year, thus reducing the rubber requirement. But no synthetic rubber made In Naugatuck goes into tire production. Asked to express an opinion concerning Nuurfcituck, ho asserted, "It's a fine community. X envy poo- pie who can work and live in the same vicinity, without the trouble of traveling long hours to their jobs." Again, he expressed his pleasure at tho part in comunily life taken by personnel of the company plants, adding, "I don't mean Chamber of Commerce affalrn exclusively." "Naugatuck," ho continued, "In shining example of what plant POLICE BBCOVER GOODS New York — Local police in the U.

New Haven—Airplanes and helicopters sprayed or dusled 10,291 acres of land In Connecticut ;n 1949, according tr. ".Tares just compiled by M. P. Zappe, deputy state entomolop)isl at tho Oonnectic.ut Agricultural Experiment Station, which Is responsible for Irlsoc'C- lion of such land before It can bo sprayed.

By law, all land to be sprayed or j dusted by aircraft must first pass inspection by the Connecticut Agricultural experiment Station and the State Board of Fisheries and Gam?, which then submit their findings to the Aeronautics Commission. On the basis of these findings. Hie Commission decides whether or net to Issue a permit for the spraying. According to Mr. Zappc, the main thing the inspectors arc on the alert for is the proximity of gardens, 'house?, reservoirs, trout streams, and the like. No spraying is allowed if these arc near enough to the area to be sprayed for drifting insecticides or other .rpray materials to cause trouble. A few sprays* or dusts are not allowed 'at all. For example, no weed killers may be applied by aircraft nor may parathlon or other highly toxic organic phosphates' be* put on from the air in dust form. There is more danger of drift with dusts than with «t>rays. With Ipiropor .safeguards, which the -inspection service assures. Mr. Zappe predict that air spraying will increase in the future. Foi several purposes, it is much more effective than ground derations. New York—The Hall of Fame was given to America by Helen fcould. daughter of the financier. Jay Gould, in 1900.
