Newspaper Publishers AM'n TUESDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1949 j Hoover Won't Worry Dewey Anderson, a member of the Citizens Committee for the Hoover Report, has resigned from this better government group. He feels that Mr. Hoover's speech before the committee in Washington the other day -was straight out of the book of the National Association of Manufacturers. That, in his opinion, is the worst charge that could be made against it. Xo liberal worth his salt, says Anderson, can go along with this sort of thing. He says he is "angry and disillusioned." There is a strong suspicion that Anderson is miffed because the former President has proved him wrong. This Anderson is author of a recent book which estimated total savings in government spending by instituting Hoover Commission reforms at a little over $300,000,000. Apparently he is not aware that under authority given Defense Secretary Johnson by the TydingsAct (recommended by the Hoover Commission) defense .-pending for the next fiscal year already been pared by $1,•i 50,000,000. Anyway, if Anderson had read ::-.e Hoover speech carefully he v ould have found this: "It is r. jt in the field of our commission to discuss the merit or demerit of ~-.vernment policies—our purpose is to make them work more ecc- r.. mically and efficiently." Anderson's withdrawal from '!•. > Citizens' Committee will not w,. rry Mr. Hoover very much. But :. -vould be interesting to have !-.:: '. explain why he joined it in in the first place. 101 languages within the Russian orbit alone. This is certainly an achievement for a train robber and all - around murderer. The Muscovites have been holding a celebration about thi.y in connection with SIalin'.s seventieth birthday, in which extrai-agant praises of the Bathless Bolshevik were sung throughout the land. It is recalled that Hitler's "Mein Kampf" had a tremendous circulation inlands under the heel of der fuehrer. Yet this volume certainly will not survive as literature. If Old Bnthless is unduly puffed up about his book "sales," he might reflect that his distinguished fellow countryman, Tolstoy was a pretty good writer himself, despite some nutty ideas, but he never had the book circulation that Old Boly claims. He had no authority to make 'em buy or read his stuff. California man left only to such relatives who are Democrats. Just like they give out census jobs.

WALTER WINCHELL In New York Sti-ange Fruit Forming I: Bonn is a mirror, the people of Western Germany are not too happy under their new fed- er:;l government. On the floor of parliament, his socialist op- por.jnts have charged Chancellor Adenauer with being the tool of the Allies, while the communists r.a--2 compared him to Hitler. C Brmans, hoping again for a •'-' day and fearing that a wo.-se time may come, can hard!;- :;e expected to be cairn. It is no; strange that their leaders ,-:vo free range to their feelmi: ; and their tongues. Dr. Adenauer himself has been talking n.v-ut a matter the American, Sr.-.ish and French high com- miraioners would prefer to let lie '<>:• the present. ^ That is the question of whether V.Ystern Germany is to be rea: med and in what way. It is not .-!.-. urgent question now. The Allies are not proposing a military force for the federal state or cUling for men to serve in some noa-German or super-German But Germans have begun to ioofc to the future again and they ' that Russia will hold over i -iem the threat of military dom: nation for years to come. They realize that this threat must be met. They conclude that sooner or later they will be asked to help meet it. So they are disturbed, and the question is what to do to calm them. Part of the answer is such decrees as the new one forbidding all military, semi-militarv and nazi-like organizations in" Western Germany. p art of it is to continue the slow work of ecc- namic rehabilitation. If these are not enough, a definite commitment to maintain the new republic may be required. Such a pledge from the Lmted States to an enemy overcome at great cost less, than five years ago would be a weird addition to the fruits of victory. Vishinsky's visit to East" Germany and his reported promise of a "Little Marshall Plan" for the Soviet satellites may be regarded as proof that Russian blunders cannot be relied upon to give America the advantage in this crucial tug-of-war -now beginning. Do You Remember? One Year Ago • Mrs. Joseph Ramos, her daughter, Mrs. Manuel Paiva, and three grandchildren, Virgin, Joseph and CeceliaPaiva, returned from a six months' visit in Portugal.

Charles and William Pettijean, John Penrod, William Moody, Kenneth O.'Brien and Walter Gruberman were attending a Boy Scout winter camp at Winsted. MODERN ETIQUETTE Q. What is the correct position for the butter knife on the bread- and-butter plate? A.

Whot'll a dollar be worth ten years from now? Will it buy more shredded wheat, or less? Thofs a pretty important question when you're talking about pensions. Back in the '30s, the man who could look forward to retiring on a $50 a month pension seemed to be in good shape ... a buck went pretty far in those days. But what happens? The years roll by, and when the time comes to retire, $50 a month isn't such a big deal. It won't buy as much as he'd hoped it would. You see, there's not much sense in planning pension's of $50, $100, or even $1,000, unless we also make sure that that money will be worth something when the time comes to spend it. That means that employees and management must, for their own protection, work their collective heads off to keep other manufacturing costs down. If costs continue to go up, prices will rise with them . . . we'll find ourselves faced with the doggonedest inflation yet. The man who expects a pension has the biggest reason for fighting inflation. INDUSTRIES The NAUGATUCK VALLEY MH P"0 "J SS:5 T-AV-HOIM 0281 Mo'Wf S™ --1-JWIM «. UITU
