But a representative of T'IO News, who attended the meeting. has the straight facts. There in nlHo, In the filoH of The News, a letter with notation in tho handwriting of nn officer of thn league. Thnl Is the letter published yeii- Icrdny In The NeWH, In which uiirinlmniiH action wns reported. A poll of the membership of tho Ijoard of directors would Hiii'port the statement that tho letter wan auhorlfced. The News has a complete report ol the activities ut last week's Meeting, Including the namCH of dtroetor.H who discussed tho queB- tion, and those who made the mr- tioiiH and the seconds. The report will not bo mado public. The News feels 'that no Rood ran come from a continuance of this conl.rover.Hy. It had been hoped thiil the statement from the hoard of directors would have beu-n (he final word on the. subject. The News In'tendfl to pub'tpn nothing further In Its newa col- umnH about tho controversy. Thus (ar it has carried only one story since the Issue wan raised by Burgess Rado. That was the one story In which the letter of tho 'directors was published. A report that tho board )iud voted to censure Rado wap Jirwt published In an out-oftown paper. , Further controversy would serve no good Interest. It might have a very tiorlouH effect on an outstanding community project. 15 Local Stores To Be Visited By Mystery Men Chairman William Schporo of the Retail Division of the Chamber of Commerce today, In a resume of the first week of the Automobile Glvn-Away Event now under way In leading local stores, stated that the event has stimulated a great deal of interest In early Christmas chopping here, Chalrmaon Schpero today paid tribute to Lewis Freedman, chairman of the Promotions committee of the Retail Division who Is In direct charge of thn car event, and who worked out the myriad of details associated with presenting a new $1800 Ford car to the Naugatuck shopping public as a Christmas present from local merchants.

S. Rubber Co. footwear plant desires to purchase a small strip of borough-owned property on Water street. Warden Harry L. Carter at last night's meeting of the board of warden, and burgesses explained that tho firm seeks a small parcel of land adjacent to property It owns in order to build a plant "which will mean between $7(MKX> and $7fi,OOO on our ta xllut." Tho desired properly, which i.i triangular In nhape, fronts WuU-r street by 23 feel and extends about lt»n fcirt to no dimension. Willard E. BIUI, factory manager of the local plant, today said the firm's boundary on the north i» irregular and in order to build on the f.ropcrty it Is necessary to "even It up." He nauertcd that th<5 plant is seeking " a substantial appropriation", but stated that plans were now In "the Idea stage" and that no definite decision will be mode until next month. Mr. Blttle declared that "providing the large ouKpropriotion is granted, building would start Immediately." The warden was authorized with Burp-caseii Harold Stlnfon and William Rado to inspect the propar- ly and appraise It before any definite action is taken by the board. BecauiHj the time element involved Is brief, the warden will contact board members personally or by telephone to ascertain their desires before allowing (purchase of th'i property. Kxchange The board voted to exchange a parcel of borough-owned property 40 by 80 feet on Dunn avenue for 2,000 square feel of land at the Intersection of Aetna and Kdward streets with George E., anrt Mary A. McNftmara, A» tho outcome of tho transaction, which Involves no expense, the board voted to cancel deferred sanitary sewer assessments levied in JSXM against l:ind on Aetna street contained In tho deed from the McNamuraa to the borough and known as Edward street. Oppose Metor* A petition, signed by 35 employes of the U. S, Rubber Co., was road requesting t nn ( tho board reconsider placing nine meters on tho •west aide of Church itreot north of J-)j vision street. Warden Carter commented on the fact that 35 people could not benefit from only nine, parking places. Upon recommendation of the street committee, the board voted to iniitnll tho parking meters to eliminate all d«y parking. A recommendation by Polico Chief John J. Gormley at last month's meeting that parking bo eliminated on the east side of Meadow street south of Park place, Is still subject of Investigation by the street committee. The warden asked that the police department enforce tho no parking ban on the north side of Hillside avenue from Meadow street to the first curve. A parking ordinance roads that there shall be no park- Ing on either side of Hillside avenue from Meadow «(r«et 200 fe«i to Falrvlow avenue.
