Patterson to Bun Although labor unions have announced plans for a program of opposition against Mr. Patterson, there has been no organized move as yet, and no other politicians in the Fifth District GOP ranks have voiced intentions of seeking the nomination in 1950. It would appear at this time as though Mr. Patterson will seek renomination to the post ne nas held since 1946. He said last summer that he would seek renomination. Both Rep. Patterson and Rep-at- Large Antoni Sadfak ,the only two Refpirblican members of the Congressional delegation, have also oeen mentioned as possible candidates for Senator in the 1950 campaign. Talbot Asked Mr. Talbot today said that he has been asked many times lately by various members of the Republican party if he wao interested in the Senate position. In speaking of the gubernatorial nomination, the local attorney said, "tai not interested in the position of governor." As far<&s the situation for the governor's nomination is concerned, Mr. Talbot stated that the field is wide open, but that GOP (party memberis "won't talk." He said in his opinion J .Kenneth Bradley of Westport, former state chairman and national committeeman, who announced his candidacy for governor 10 days Bjgo, has "as much chance as anyone else.' Both the TaJbot and Bradley announcements come in the wake of former Senator Raymond E Baldwin being named to the State Supreme court bench. Mr. TaVbot did not name names, but indicated that with Bald-win out of the political picture, the way irtood clear for himself and Bradley. In 1946 Mr. Talbot sought the gubernatorial nomination, t>u>t withdrew just before the convention roll call began, due to opposition of Baldwin. That same year iMr. Patterson was one of five candidates for the Fifth District nomination. At the convention delegates "drafted" Mr. Talbot, but he refueled renomination in view of his aspirations for the gubernatorial i;ost, Mr. Patterson with support from Baldwin, had no opposition in the 1948 convention. Atty. Talbot was state treasurer from 1939 to 1941, and was a workmen's compensation commissioner 492 NO. MAIN ST. TEL. 2211 Going Out of Business SALE Last Few Days!

Representative in a pi-erial election in 1941, won, and then ina elected to tiro full terms in 194* and 1944. In the 1946 election the late Gov. James McConaughy was nominated for Governor. Mr. Talbot was offered the nomination of lieutenant-governor, but refused, and the post went to James C. Shannon, who became governor upon the death of Mr. McConaughy. Shannon who resides in Bridgeport is regarded by political observers as the leading candidate for governor at this time. Former Representative Clare Booths Luce of Ridgefleld has not indicated whether she will be a candidate for the six-year Senate term. Mr. Talbot's announcement came as little surprise to people in Naugatuck and in the state'.* GOP ranks, as despite his continuous statement that he was "staying out of politics," no one actually felt he would maintain that status.

Employment of relatives by members of Congress is perfectly legal, wives or other members of the family in many notable instances have been key figures in running important congressional offices. In addition to salary and expenses, each congressman ie allowed a maximum of roughly J20,- 000 a year to pay office help. An inspection of the House of Representatives payroll reveals that at least 90 of the lower chamber's 435 members employ relatives. Nine congressmen had two rela- tives each on their November payroll, the latest available for examination. One lawmaker, Republican Norris Poulson of CaJfornii, had three daughters on the !ist.

AMERICAN BANKING IN ACTION:^ WORKER, CUSTOMER, INVESTOR In America the same man can be all three — a worker, a customer and an investor. As a worker you are free to change your job, as a customer you can buy where you please; and as an investor you can put your savings wherever you can get a fair return on your money. (For instance, 65 out of 100 Americans deposit in thrift accounts.) This right of choice is another American freedom we should cherish and preserve. ...
