Mr. Roosevelt read his letter to newsmen at his regular conference with Washington correspondents. But before ho made known .his position, the president first ordered the doors of his olllce locked to prevent correspondents from stampeding to the telephones. Thus, Mr. Roosevelt's renomina- tion is assured. But the position of Vice-President Wallace Is up in the air. Now that the president has announced his own position, in advance of the convention, it appears that the choice of a candidate for vice-president will be entirely up to tho delegates, when the Democrats met in Chicago, starting July 19.

As a member of this.committee I was instrumental in the libur.altziition of the Workmen's Compensation and ' Unemployment Compensation statutes; also tho act guaranteeing state employees their own jobs and seniority rights when released from tho armed forces. This committee also granted time and a half overtime pay to State Highway employees for tho first time" '.'In local- matters I, with my .colleague Mrs. Anna Eric, was instrumental in the passage of the following-Public Acts concerning Naugatuck: .CD A pension- for Captain Lyman Lamphcrc, the oldest paid member. In length of service in the fire department. (2) Setting up) of a pension system for tho paid members of tho Naugatuck fire department—This is a contributory system, and will eliminate personal pension bills in fhis department. • (3) A permissive act paying burgesses "for each . regular . meeting attended. Approved by referendum May 19.13.—This was enacted to Improve attendance at. meetings and carry on the borough, business ,in a more thorough manner. "A b"irl was submitted, but not passed, eliminating the necessity of signing property lists oach year. This wns net enacted because of the then deplorable, conditions in the assessors' office, .some of which have improved as a result of recommendations by the Str.te Tax, Commissioner."
