PAGK I—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, NOV. 35, Caskey Lauds YM Program, Large Membership Increase "The year 1949 has been a successful one for the Naugatuck "SMCA," Pres. John E. Caskey said in his annual report submitted &.t tn» YMCA's annual meeting Tuesday. ''Never before in the history ot the Naugatuck YMCA has there been an overall program more complete. more efficiently conducted or better designed for the community at large than the one now in full operation.' He also pointed out that the membership now stands at 1,300, an increase of 30 per cent in the past five years. The text of the report is as fol- jo-ws: "With these improvements, como additional repsonsibilities. It is ECW quite apparent that it will be necessary each year to bolster the endowment and operating income by public subscriptions. "A little over $7,000 was reached this year by this means. This represents about 13 r>er cent of the operating cost which is still low us compared to most YMCAs in the Sate of Connecticut. "The program to completely renovate our 28 year old establishment has been continued. Detailed plans arc now worked out to complete this job soon. This will include renovating and repairing the gymnasium, pool, boys' lounge, locker and shower rooms, dormitory showers, etc. "One of the most important things to consider for the futuro is a clear cut and definite plan of organization tp meet our increasing needs. Considerable progress has already been made along this line. "The YMCA is a combination lay-professional organization. It is important to define clearly the functions of each in committee work since most of-the work is conducted in this manner. ''The lay committeemen should be persons who exemplify in their own lives the association's ideals, command committees' confidence, possess leadership qualities and are willing to serve, are cooperative, and thoroughly in sympathy with the association's purposes. "The secretary and his staff, through specialized training, should bring to the association a thorough understanding of the movement, its traditions and experiences, possess Sunday Excursions to NEW YORK $1.85 LOW Round Trip FARE (Tax Incl.)

"Determination of policies is strictly the responsibility of the laymen. But on£e adopted, execution of the policies is the responsibility of the professional staff. ''It is an art to discover and en- Usf qualified persons for this service. They should be selected on the bo.sis of their present or potential interest in the work. Persona ap- .pointed merely because of prestige or authority seldom make good committeemen. We already have committees operating, - such. as: Business, personnel^ membership, boys' work, physical, building and camp. , "In addition there are numerous Sub-committees usually within the scope of the above. "I would suggest that at the beginning of the','new year a thorough study Be made of the organ- izo.tional needs; its committees function and scope; the aim being to bring to a higher degree of accomplishment the things already started. • "What a wonderful opportunity this represents./or trailing in leadership at a time when the whole world is settling down into two separate ideological camps bitterly opposed to each other. "It is most difficult for us to understand how anyone could possibly be communistic, but there must be a reason which we have 1 not yet discovered. We are on the defensive. While some succes has been made in stopping progress in a few places, most of the gains nave been made, on the side of the Reds and the end is not yet in sight. There is something about this program that appeals to the inner soul of men, particularly young people. Look at all the strife that is going on about us both inside *.he Government and outside. It seems to me-to be often motivated by selfishness, greed and materia things. "The Y. M. C; A. stands for fair play, understanding, good fellow ship and all Christlike principles What better basis could be found for meeting needs of the world al large. Let us think it over, maybe it starts here'in Naugatuck. "I wish to express my most sin cere appreciation for the coopera tion by the Board, of Directors, the 'Y' staff and all committees 'dur ing the past year." Submitted by JOHN E. CASKEY.
