Telephone* tttS and All Department* hlntered a* second clam matter at the post office In Naugatuck. Conn. SUBSCRIPTION RATES Payable In Advanoe 1 Month ...$1.30 1 Year . ..118.00 Metnoer: American Newspaper Pub. N. K. Dally Newspaper Put. Conn. Newspaper Publisher* Aai'n TUESDAY. DECEMBKB IS, 194P One Congressman's View Rep. Kd Rocs of Kansas, hack from (i survey of conditions In Western Europe nt an expenditure of $1,800 of his own money, proposes that the United States wind up its program of gifts under the Marshall Plan next June. He suggests that thereafter the United States grant long term loans to such European nations as need them. Four Democratic Senators have returned from Europe in the last few dny.i with recommendations that Marshall Plan funds be cut drastically. Apparently these rumblings have penetrated to Paul Hoffman, head of the EGA. There arc predictions that he will propose a slight cut In the funds made available to him next year. Europe, as Recs pictures It, IH rapidly recovering and by next summer can borrow and pay Interest on whatever capital It needs from this country. The U. S. Is plunging off the deep end financially, with the government, despite conf Isculory luxation, spending more than it takes in. Even the wild spenders hesitate to press for more taxes because they know that present rates are too high. The Rees proposal makes sense. But wild-eyed government financiers think mon<sy grows on trees. Tjick of cash doesn't crimp their style. They proceed to "borrow." Not being able to balance the budget in good times. It Is a mystery what they to do when and if the trend IH reversed. Would they then propose to "borrow" ten or twenty times IIH much ami bring (donation to that crash whit-h 1:( Russia's fondest hope. Doing It tho Ed Rces way, Ainerirn will have a balanced h'>ii:.:e:. But he belongs to the ant family no! that of tho grasshopper to which the current fiscal authorities of the land adhere. Bill Of Rights Most Americans think of the BUI of Rights as having been crystallized In tho first 10 amendments to the Constitution adopted by Congress 158 years ago—December 15, 1791. As a mailer of fact, it is n living body of law, like the 700-year-old Magna Carta, which has been growing and expanding ever since. At leant nix amendment)! iiubno- tjuently adopted. Including those abolishing slavery and tho extension of suffrage to women, aro as much a purl of tho Bill of Rights as its original provisions. Together they constitute the noblest affirmation of human freedom ever uttered in the world. Most of the people of the earth enjoy no Bill of Rights or only In form so shadowy us to bo negligible. Of late years the whole conception of human freedom, Klowly handed down from precedent to precedent, has been challenged by alien ideologies which concede nothing to the Individual except to be a unit cog in a dictatorship over slaves. Even the right to think is denied. Russia is working with frantic haste and high-sounding phrases to return the civilized world to a bondage It has not known since ancient times. Undoubtedly the American Bill of Rights will continue to expand provided that it is not undermined at Us foundations. If Americans remain vigilant no nihilistic aberration will halt tho majestic search of mankind onward. It Isn't Cricket Sir Stafford Crlpps couldn't have been more horrified. A member of Sir Stafford's own Labor Party had called to his attention that the New York office of Thomas Cook & Sons (nationalized when the British railroads came undor governmenl ownership) was selling the pound at a cut rate price of $2.70. This IB 10 cents below the official rate of $2.80 established when the pound was devalued from its old level of $1.03 in September. Was it true? Indeed it was, and things were worse than Sir Stafford's worst nightmare. Thomas Cook's New York office admitted blithely that it was doing a land-office business. The going price last Wednesday: A little over $2.45! The reason? Cook had to compete with banks and other currency exchange firms or withdraw a valuable service to clients. It Is difficult to believe that Sir Stafford is unaware that the severe restrictions the British government places on tho pound, particularly in Its use In foreign countries, have forced its value down in such foreign money marts aa Zurich and Tangier. Probably what bothers him most is the fact that a good old threadbare nationalized firm llku Thomas Cook & Sons will stoop to the abhorrent practice of competitive free enterprise to make ends meet.

That iittle boy's dollar will be just o buck when he tiigs it up ... no more. But in a sense, money does grow — when it's properly planted, if you give it a chance. That's where industry's reserve funds come In. Last year, Naugotuck Volley companies made a total profit of a little over four per cent on the sales dollar. But of that, one and a half per cent had to be set aside in the form of reserve funds. These reserve funds are needed to replace worn out tools and machinery, to serve as a cushion in lean years . . . MK ... and fo provide for future expansion. It's like planting money now for future expansion. , You see, when industry expands, all of us reap the benefits. Expansion means more fobs, more goods, a still higher standard of living. Reserve funds are an investment in the future. INDUSTRIES The NAUGATUCK VALLEY jKrBnY-.Tu«, 7,00 P.M. Dirf 1590 WATB-Tbu,!. 6:45 P.M. Dial 1320 WTOH-W«t 5:55 PU. Dial H WWCO—Sat 6:30 P.M.
