Asa'n r«nn- Newspaper Publianera A»a'n MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21. 1949 Command Changes John H. Schmuck, chairman of the Naugatuck Chapter, American Red Cross, has retired from that important post of public ser, vice after six years. In the words of his successor, Philip E. Rice, Mr. Schmuck "has given unselfishly and unsparingly of his time and efforts toward making the Naugatuck Chapter the'line organization that it is today." It's no sinecure, the chairmanship of Naugatuck's active Red- Cross Chapter. And much of Mr. Schmuck's tenure was during tlie war years, when the obligations were made the more pressing and emergent. Mr. Schmuck deserves a well- done salute from the Red Cross and from the borough, since set- vice to one has represented service to the other. His decision to retire was received with regret, but also with the knowledge that permission to withdraw is the honor most sought by citizens who have devoted their lives to arduous public service programs over a period of years. In addition he deserves another salute for remaining on the job until a successor of. high caliber was available. The administration of the Naugatuck Chapter, American Red Cross, remains in safe hands with Philip 2. Rice at the helm. sounds of the average city are extremely wearing to the nerves. Who knows but that some ambitious world conqueror of the future won't press a button to release waves that will drive his victim nuts? Of course, Americans are rather well conditioned against such a fate, what with having been calloused toy the din of political campaigns and similar clamorous disputations. Another war will end capitalism, say the Russians. That's the way Americans were afraid the crazy Russians were thinking. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Mr. and Mrs. William R. Moody, Jr.. of North Hoadley street, returned Jrom Cambridge, Mass., where they attended the Yale- Harvard football game.

THE CLOC Many happy returns of the day for Joan Moeckel, who observes a birthday tomorrow, and to Lou Bertothy, who celebrates Wednesday. ..

Beth Vincent, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Vincent of Beacon Manor, and Dianne Totten, young daughter of the Julian Tot- tens of Qninn street, both recently observed natal days. Jesse Davis, supervisor of public school music, was at a meeting of the executive committee of the Connecticut Music Education Friday night in Hamden. Our New York correspondent tells us that Mr. and Mrs. Spec Shea spent the weekend at the .Hotel Commodore. . .George Stirn- weiss was mobbed by autograph seekers at the wedding Saturday...The crowd was terrific...

Christmas lights have been spread across many of the borough's streets, ready for the big lighting ceremonies next Monday. . . Bomb's Kindly Sister Recently discovered knowledge c £ how to release nuclear energy from within the atom holds out for mankind the prospect of a ^^orious future—or of little future to speak of. Science can release nuclear energy; politics v ill determine now it is used. But since science progresses r.-.uch more slowly than politics, it is the destructive possibilities cf nuclear energy that has' dominated the headlines. A scientist has just asserted that among persons in the open vithin a mile of an atomic ex- i iosion, almost 100 per cent would <*. ie in that area of more than .liree square miles Between one ^nd two miles away (an added r.rea of nine and one-half square v.iiles) there would be fewer deaths, but many serious injuries. Outside this 12 1-2 square :aile area, there would be milder injuries in a larger zone, with -reak results—one adjacent group injured, another escaping. Meanwhile the U. S. Atomic Energy Commission has reported the most important peacetime use of nuclear energy yet known. (The grandiose claims of Soviet Russia on this score have not been verified, and probably won't be.) In two years the AEC has tripled the volume of radio-isotopes it is shipping to research institutions in 41 American: states and territories and 21 foreign countries. More than 7,000 shipments have been made. These isotopes differ from ordinary elements only in having radioactivity that can be detected by instruments. They make it possible to trace the distribution and progress of various substances— in living animal and vegetable matter, in chemical and metallurgical reactions, and so on. They can also be used to irradiate cancers by sending radioactive substances into areas which have a particular affinity for them. These attributes have opened the doors to entire new fields of knowledge in medical diagnosis and treatment, in studying growth and agriculture, increasing the food supply, and generally improving human life. But a few bombs can undo all that. Household Scrapbook To Clean Feathers Cut some white soap into small pieces; pour boiling water on the soap and add a little pearlash. When dissolved and the mixture is cool enough plunge the feathers into it and draw them through the hand until the dirt appears to be squeezed out of them. Then place in a clean lather with some bluing in it. Rinse in cold bluing water to give them a good color; beat them against the hand to shake iff the water, and dry by shaking hem near the fire. Complexion Hint Rubbing the skin once or twice day with ripe tobato will clear he complexion. Buttermilk, taken internally and also used as an external cleansing agent. Will aid materially in clearing the complexion. Molasses It is easy to measure molasses iccurately if the measuring cup or ipoon is dipped into scalding wa- .er before measuring. . This will keep the molasses -from sticking to ••.he sides of the cup. Look And Learn 1. How many years are usually :onsidered a generation? 2. Who was President of the U. S. at the beginning of the 20th century? 3. Where is baseball's Hall of Fame situated? 4. In which sex does color-blind ness predominate? 5. Does the white of the egg or the yolk become the chicken? Noise Can't Faze Us Dr. Horace O. Parrack of the U. S. Air Forces is experimenting with high-pitched sounds generated by the motors in the new supersonic planes. The military is interested in whether sound may reach such a pitch that it is hazardous to human life. It already has been demonstrated that certain sound waves may deafen a man permanently. Parrack's experiments so far have proved that while rats can be killed with high-frequency sound waves, man is safe against them because he has no fur. With fur-bearing animals the sound energy is turned to heat and their bodies become so hot that the protein coagulates. When the hair is shaved off, they are safe. But we mustn't get too sure that the scientists won't find a sound-frequency that will put the fixings to man. The raucous Ansewers v l. Thirty-three years. 2. William McKinley. 3.

In our opinion the following story by Author James Hughes •proves an important point in tolerance. . .He writes, "Among- the guests at a small, informal dinner I recently attended were a Catholic priest and a Jewish rabbi...When we all sat down to dinner, each of us wondered who was going to say grace... The host and hostess were obviously flustered...At the hei£ht of this painful moment, the priest rose and said, 'If you don't mind, I'd like to say an old Jewish |F»-ayer.'...Wo sat with (bowed heads Iwhile the priestt said grace in Hebrew.. .A painful moment had become 'a won- derfui experience."

A big argument is going on among :he , prosecutors as to the "advisability" of calling: to the stand a politico biggie "who can collaborate large hunks of Chambers' story." But they fear it might irk HST.. .Justice may be a blind goddess, but she's got her ear to the political ground. Investigators of the crash that killed 55 in Washington recently say the following data "appears to be true".. .Letter from S. America: "The landing he attempted when he crashed ia typical of him. I have seen him do it several times, fortunately luck was with him. Many of us wonder why he didn't crash long ago. He has a mania for showing off. About a year ago he missed a tower in Santa Cruz by not more than 3 feet attempting a night landing. He was advised not to try it, but came in anyway. He cockily said later he missed it by 30 feet. But he was about 300 feet off course of the runway. He was informed he should not endanger other lives and would crash some day, and it was hoped he'd be alone. I wonder what ht would say if he saw me face to face now? He cannot deny that he buzzed the town 'of Cbchabamba (Bolivia), skimming tops of buildings, flying between trees in a P-38 and full of tief.r! You can check' on ma through any of the air lines. They all know me., I will cooperate ar.y way you say." " From Time mag's Armed Forces section this issue, "Last week Admiral Forrest P. Sherman, the new Chief of Naval Operations, decided on a smarter, less severe move. (Defense Secy. Johnson anj Navy Secy. Matthews were hot for cnurtmartialing him.) Sherman ai- gued that Airman Crommelln was famous as a flyer and fighting man and that Crommelin's impetuous and reckless revolt against civilian control had made him tnc darling of half the officers in the service. It was certain to stir up new publicity. W. Winchell rushed a NY lawyer to Washington to defend Crommelin." You betcha Life, Time & Fortune!.. .Capt. Crommelln also hes two U. S. Senators (from both political parties who are lawyers) ready to fight for him—the way he fought for all of us when the L!3come Bay was torpedoed.
