PAGE 2—NAUGATUCK NEWS (CONN'.), MONDAY, DEC. 5, UI4fl DREW PEARSON ON The WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Senators Take A Holiday In Spain; Recommended American Loan To Franco After Gay Weekend Washington—Here ;s a contrast between what two group of Americans have clone to influence their country's standing abroad. One- is the Junior Chamber of Commerce In Texas. The other is the half- inebriated senate appropriations subcommittee traveling through Spain. First, the antics of the Sena- ntnrs. The subcommittee, headed by Sen. Elmer Thomas of Oklahoma, traveled in a special air fores plane, including six crew members, tv.o stenographers, three clerks, three wives and a doctor— Dr. William E. Lovelacp of Albuquerque—to look after the health of Xew Mexico's Senator Dennis Chavez. "They call this a junket," carefully explained Senator Thomas to newsmen, "but that's a misnomer. Th« country's spending seven billions of the taxpayers' money, and the taxpayer is entilted to know how the money is being- spent. That's what we're looking- after.' But the Senator glassed over the fact that the U. S. A. is spending r,ot one cent of money in Spain. "One of the Senators had a relative in Spain he wanted us to meet," Thomas explained, presumably referring to Senator Chavez. Arriving in Madrid at 3:30 p. m. Sa'urday, the committee was received by foreign minister Martin Artajo. then attended a reception at the American Embassy, then drove the next day to Tolcda, attending a fiesta, witnessed the traininjr maneuvers of some young- bulls for a bullfight and saw a pypsy "flamenca" dance. Ouring the latter part of this fast-moving- entertainment, several of the senators-obviously were in no condition to report intelligently on what they were seeing. Bibulous Senators This column is not interested in whether a public official drinks or doesn't drink. We have no great concern even if he gets blotto — long as it's in private. Rut when n group of U. S. Senators spend the taxpayers' money on an official rni.-xion where they represent the Vniifd States government, then •r.-y have an obligation to keep .- O-..T -it least in public. The United States has great ;>:•< <.;•:<: in Spain. Americans art pcr-.sider.'d sober. hard-working rr.-.plc.

Senator Chavez of New Mexico, -who kept mumbling: "I'm a Catholic, a Spaniard and a Yankee gentleman, and I don't give a who knows it." Finally, Sonator Thomas, whom the Spanish press referred to as "Cotton" Thomas, corralled most of his committee plus the Spanish hosts around a table as if he were presiding over his Senate Afcricult- ure committee back in Washington, and tried to hold a hearing. But everybody wanted to talk at once. Finally, the Senator from Oklahome concluded: "I move that the Foreign Mini'?•ter convey this information to this young man, the Ambassod<>r." He ipointed to Charge D'Affaires Paul Culbertson, who is not an Amba.«oador, duo to the fact that the U.N. in a very important debate, has voted against Ambassadors to Spain. "He," continued Thomas, "will thon convey it to the State Department which always kesps the Senat well-informed." Maybe T.V Swedes Were Right In other worda, if the Senators were going to get their report from the State Department anyway, they mig-ht just as well have saved the taxpayers' money and stayed at home. Finally, one American asked Senator Thye of Minnesota: "Why did you come here at all? It's obvious that you can't see anything during this brief weekend." "Well," replied Thye, who . at home is a serious, hard-working Senator, " we have a military At- tache here. And we havo a Naval Attache here, and we have Consulates. And it's our duty to see that they arc properly representing the United States." "But you arrived on a Saturday afternoon when these offices aren't open," rcmonhtrated the American, "and you leave Monday morn- Ing before they open," YouVo senn a fiesta, you've had a siesta, and you've danced a Fiamenca," added an American lady, "but what have you seen of Spain?" Undaunted, the Senators flew to Paris in their special air force plane Monday morning, And out of their vast fund of week-end knowledge of Spain, they announc- ci'd that Dictator Franco should receive an American loan of $100000.000. Note —Maybe the Swede., were wise in not rolling out the "cd carpel for t h« Thomas corn- tee.

MAIN ST. 18SV Annual Report Disaster Relief Of Red Cross Committee The disaster preparedness and relief committee of the Naugatuck Chapter, American Red Gross, was called on every few times durirvg the pnst year, according to the committee annual report submitted at the recent annual of the chapter. The committee responded to four fires and mcbi- liged for action during the flood threat last New Year's eve. The text of the report is as follows. One of the responsibilities of our chapter is to provide cnm- fort and relief to victims of disasters occurring- within our terri. tory. During the past year, your chapter disaster reipiresentativs at- tcr.d'ed four fires in the borough to carry out this responsibility. Of these, three required no Red Cross disaster service beyond Immediate solace and discussion of the disaster's implications for the family, although all Involved were told of Red Cross 'policy in their cases, that help on the basis of need, woud be given if necessary. In the fourth, a large fire involving a four family dwelling, chapter rep- resantative.9 assumed greater re- sr.'onsi'biHty for the maintenance of the families during the period of rehabilitation afterwards. Help was given in arranging for food and lodging for those unable to return to their home, and information regarding a hospitalized victim was obtained for other members of the family. Nursing service was given by Red Cross nurses to those with minor injuries. The chapter plan for action when disaster is imminent proved its great value during the flood threat of December 31, IMS. After being alerted at 11 a, m. on that day by the Red Cross General Field Representative, the plan was put Into operation. "Since we have no disaster chairman thi.9 yiar, Mr. Schmuck, Chapter Chairman, served in this capacity. At his direction, all heads of sub-committees were notified to «tand by. The Survey Committee, under William Noble, Jr., tho Shelter committee under Dr. J. Nelson Judy, the Medical and Nuraln-jr Aid Committee headed by Dr. N. A. Towne, the Food committee under Mrs. C. S. Austin, the RCHCUO Committee headc'.! by John W. Hayen, Jr., and tho Transportation committee under John E. O'Donnel!, were all ready for action in case they wore needed. Othei'H alerted were Earl P. Barnum, Public Information, nnd Clnrcnco Prcedman of the Cloth- Ing committee. M|HH Emily Sophia Brown prepared to establish quar- tern from which inc|iilrl«» regarding the welfare of Nagatuck families could be promptly answered.

All during the afternoon and evening information was sought regarding the flood crest as it moved down the Naugatuck River. The Hartford Weather Bureau, the Connecticut Light and Power Co. the Warden and Police Force of Nanxatuek, were contacted and consulted at intervals to learn of developments in the situation. Cooperation between all con- corned with the safety of possible sufferers was at a high level at all times. The community was fortunate in that the situation did not become so serious as to endanger lives and .property on a large scale. However,, viewing the flood threat as a test for the chapter's Plan, it is felt that such an emergency could be handled efficiently and with dispatch. GREETINGS Christmas greetings arc extended to Naugatuck residents and visitors at the police booth at Main and Maple street. A large sign offering Christmas greetings has been posted on the booth by the Naugatuck Chamber of Commerce.
