Dany Newspaper Pub. A*B*n Conn. Newspaper Publishers Asa'n THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1M9 Sex Crimes Sex crimes are of such frequency these days that they are reported to be shocking the nation. The country seems to be helpless to prevent them. Postings of high rewards for apprehension of some of the perpetrators of appalling crimes have a hollow sound of uselessness. What good is It to catch a few and leave the whole area of prevention almost untouched. The real solution, when America finally awakens to the need, is to seek out .the perverts and give them adequate treatment. Science has progressed far enough so that could be done today were this field not hedged in by false ideas and tabus. America, too, is sinning, and long has done so, in its overemphasis on sex. Through many media there is being glorified to the point of nausea one phase of life which, though lending itself to glamor, is no more important than other phases. Probably those in their susceptible years are most subjected to this unbalance of constant portrayal. Educators complain that publishers of comic books for the young, virtually forced out of the field of violent crime by protests, are turning to the romantic love theme and achieving bigger sales than ever. A nation esteems that which it emphasizes, and here is a false value. It lends Itself to easy money, but what is money if a people decays? Either those already infected will be caught and treated to achieve a sensible balance on sex, or the nation's present degree of shock will be mild compared to that which will develop. Stalin's Health There was an obscure squib in one of the big city papers the other day chronicling a new rumor that Stalin is "a very sick man," the first such to find its way into print for weeks. Such rumors no longer receive the news play they did a few months ago. Stalin has been reported in poor health a score of times in the past, only to have such reports denied officially by Moscow. This, of course, has little significance so far as the truth of the matter is concerned. He will be near death and there would be no admission of the fact by the Kremlin. A report on Stalin's condition which has had no confirmation since was given several months ago by the Brazilian ambassador to Russia, who was ordered out of the country when relations between Brazil and the reds were broken off. He said Stalin is suffering from paralysis of the left side, and gets around on crutches. Molotov wiirbe his successor, he said. Previously Stalin was reported to have had a 'heart attack, and was in apparent retirement for months. The impression is widespread that the Russian dictator is in poor physical condition, and may be out of the picture at an early date. He fails to make his customary appearances at celebrations in Moscow celebrating this or that Soviet holiday. Stalin's passing, however, would have little effect on the Russian situation, especially if Molotov should take over. Until communism is abandoned and a civilized government is installed in Russia, it makes no difference who heads the Russian regime. Bowls And Baskets Announcers who heralded another Yankee rescue mission with the familiar "No 11, Page, now pitching" are in winter storage. More recent headlines were by a couple of other fellows named Galiffa and Sitko, or Deuber and Sella, or who you will. Yet even as T-formations rush to fleeting fame and the inevitable bowls, a brash intruder elbows its way onto the sports pages. Basketball and the elongated young men who play it are back, and from a spectator standpoint bigger, though not better, than baseball or football. From now on basketball will rule the sports world -with only incidental competition from 9,367 rose, orange and cotton bowl games, and nlx- line items about the A's signing •ho pitching sensation of Medicine Bow High. It's hard for many sports page veterans, to whom the game Is associated with a peach basket nailed to the barn or a pole on a corner lot, to .understand why basketball ranks as the No. 1 draw of eports. In the good old days, the anticipatory deeds ol Ruth and Johnson and Cbbb and Collins, with an occasional assist from Dempsey and Greb, were enough between the Series and spring training to fill the winter void in any man's life. Do You Remember? One Year Ago An all-night parking ban on the borough's streets was voted by the borough board at the suggestion of Police Chief John J. Gormley. Dr. Joseph J; Sitar was re- nominated as president of the Naugatuck Fish and Game Club, Inc. 20 Years Ago Sterling Selleck, of North Main street, left for Jacksonville, Fla. Judge Martin E. Gormley attended the Army-Notre Dame football game in New York. Household Scrapbook Tight Shoes If shoes are too tight for comfortable wearing, wring a cloth out of very hot water and place over the spot where the shoe pinches while the shoe is still on the foot. The heat causes the leather to expand. Spiced Fruit Feel To make spiced fruit peel add cinnamon bark and whole cloves to the syrup used for cooking the peel. The proportions are half a stick of cinnamon and six whole cloves to each two cups of sugar. . Downspouts Clogged downspouts may often be opened by dropping a few handfuls of ordinary rock salt into them where they connect with the eaves. MODERN ETIQUETTE Q. Is it all right to ask "Who is this" or "What number is this," when making a telephone call and someone answers whose voice you do not recognize? A. This is extremely ill-bred. The correct thing always to do is to ask for the person with whom you wish to speak. Q. When invited to a dinner party in a restaurant or hotel, does one have the privilege of choosing one's own meal? A. No; the host or hostess orders the meal in advance, and the guests eat what is placed before them. Q. How should a girl announce her engagement if her parents are dead? A. It may be announced in the name of her brother, or her nearest relative. Look And Learn 1. What was the first metal used by man? 2. Which is the "Green Mountain State"? 3.
