*AGE a—NATjG \TT7CK NKWS (COVN.). MONDAY, NOV. 21, IMfl Old Gunntown Monument Pictures Message Of The Christmas Seal To the west of Naugatuck rest- Ing peacefully amid thr woods und rolling hills of Connecticut lies Gunntown Cemetery, a beautifully weathered memorial to t ho men and women, the boys and s?irb) who lived In this section long, long ago. Today a protective wnll of stone •urrounds the fragile looking grave•tones ,somc of which for over ICO years have survived the ice and •news of winter, the whipping winds of early spring, the mellow warmth of summer and the frolic- Ing leaves of autumn. The delicate carving on the grey- ing titones has likewise endured and the fading inscriptions are invitn- tions for remembering the people of the past and the stories of their lives. One inscription in particular has a rtory to tell. Jl appears on the jrravestone of a young man who died In 1817 at the age of 35. The dimming inscription reads "Consumption, though slow is sure." How clearly was expressed the tragedy of tuberculosis 132 years ago. Doomed to the tomb was the unfortunate victim of the dreaded, "wasting disease" of yesteryear; destined first to perhaps yeari of helpless suffering without hop* — tragic, but true, in those bygone days. Thua Gunntown Cemetery, where the past and the present meet, vividly pictures the message of the Christmas Seal. Its rncuHfiKC in one of hop* for victims of tuberculosis and one of security for everyone. Through advances in medical sci- •nce tuberculosis is both curable and preventable. When your Christmas Seal letter arrives, welcome it, because vince 1907, when the Christma* Seal first reached the United otntes from Denmark, it has been .he means by which the gi-eat voluntary movement for Iho control of tuberculosis hn« been supported. For the 35 year old tuberculosis victim in Gunntown in 1817 this was almost 100 years too late. Today, "TubcrouloniH is preventable," replaces "Consumption, though slow is sure."

The knowledge they pass on to us — their influence on our thinking — actually become factors in determining what our lives turn out to be. For the past few years, our teachers have worked valiantly in the face of many odds—crowded classrooms, long hours, shortages of textbooks and supplies. Today progress is being made to correct these conditions — to make teaching continually more attractive to the specially gifted men and women who belong in this highly honored profession. Lef s all help to keep our school standards worthy of the type of men and women we want to guide our children's future. Remember, better schools mean better communities and a better life for all For information on how citizens in many communities have joined or formed committees to work in behalf of their schools, write to: National Citizens Commission for the Public Schools, 2 West 45th St., New York 19, N.
