If these misguided Republicans were truthful they should have carried signs reading, "Secretary of Defense Marshall, General Omar Bradley, and Admiral Forrest Sherman approved and so did Benton," for this is a fact. The wise men who drew up our Constitution provided for civilian control over the military, for otherwise it might be easy for a popular military hero to set }ip a die' tatorship. General MacArthur deliberately disobebyed direct orders not to issue policy statements until they were first cleared by his superiors; so he forced President Truman either to dismiss him or acknowledge that generals should make policy, not the elected representatives of the people. If the Republicans who picketed Senator Benton were willing to tell the GOP Misguided In Picketing Benton Home whole truth they should have carried signs reading, "George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin approved of dismissing a disobedient general, and so does Senator Benton." Of course, neither I nor the Republicans have talked with Stalin and can quote him on his stand But I do know that the Communists and Russia have opposed our helping to arm and defend with troops the free countries of Europe. It is reasonable to suppose, therefore, that Stalin -would like nothing better than to see us bogged down in an all out war with China, so that we could not help Europe when Stalin attacks there. Such an all out war with China is just what MacArthur advocates, though it would weaken our ability to help Europe against Russian aggression; while President Truman and the other members of the .United Nations except Russia and her satellites, want to avoid such an all out war. I wonder if the Republicans realize this. ALFRED BAKER LEWIS. Greenwich, Conn. Farrar Says Taxes May Be Kept To Minimum By Intelligent Handling Of Budget Problem April 16, 1951. Editor Naugatuck News. In a recent letter to the News, I suggested the formation of a Taxpayers Association. Since then I have been approached by a number of local taxpayers - who have expressed their dissatisfaction concerning the inevitable increase of the tax rate, by possibly four mills, a total of $4.00, for each $1,000 of assessed valuation. It is obvious and I must be blunt in this statement, that our Borough officials are either incapable of thinking intelligently ton the tax problem or do not chose to do so. Furthermore, I may "add, that it is an injustice to the people of Nau-' gatuck; for a Borough official to even attempt to administer the duties of his office unless he is familiar with the knowledge pertaining to the fundamental principles of economics, particularly those applying .to the functions of the Federal Government. I know that the functions of the Federal Government appear remote when we are concerned with the increase of our local taxes. However when we realize that not only :he Federal Government, but the State as' well is demanding more and more taxes from us we become aware that there is a definite connection among the three forms of government.. To be sure we are faced with a National Emergency, and the :heory according to the Board of Economists in Washington is to finance the emergency on a pay-as- you-go basis. Consequently as the momentum of government production increases, it is obvious that our income taxes will also increase. Furthermore, anyone familiar with Long Form 1040, will note when filing his next income tax return that the percentage reduction will have been eliminated from the form, thus resulting in a higher tax. How does all this affect our citizens regarding our local taxes? To be sure ours is an industrial town whose residents are chiefly wage earners. Many are home owners whose dual responsibility is concerned with the thought of amortizing the mortgage of their homes and raising a family with some minimum standard of existence. The . Federal Government by its means of taxation, namely Personal Income and. Social Security, determines their take-home pay. In addition, the State with its many forms of taxation, Sales Tax, etc.," also cuts into the wage earners take-home pay. And to make matters worse, our National economy is suffering from an inflationary condition with prices of goods, spiraling- up ward so that tht average housewife who is faced with the problem of trying to .make ends meet, is finding it quite 'difficult to do so. ; Of course we realize that our town must have revenue to function properly, but it certainly appears that some savings can be effected by cutting down on purchases, on equipment, and on the exorbitant amounts that are asked for repairs. No one questions the proposed increase's that may be given to the Borough employes, but on the other hand everyone feels' that by intelligent handling of the budget problem taxes may be kept down to a minimum. ANTHONY FARRAR. JACOBY ON BRIDGE By OSWALD JACOBY Written for NBA Service Cue-Bfd Shouldn't Tip Off Opponents A cue-bid (one that shows con- TO! rather than a real suit) often belps the 'partnership reach the best contract.

It would seem that he was simply making a sacrifice bid, and his side might well be permitted j to play the hand at five -clubs — ' probably doubled. Even if North ran out to five- spades, East might then bid six clubs. Without the cue-bid in hearts, North could be expected to lead a spade; and 'then West would easily fulfill the slam contract in clubs. CAED SENSE Q — With both sides vulnerable your partner deals and bids one no-trump. The next player doubles. You hold: Spades 5-3, Hearts 9-4-2, Diamonds J-9-7-4, Clubbs 10-8-5-2. What dp you do? A—Pass (with inward fear and trembling). Your hand is almost worthless, but you cannot expect to improve the contract by bidding one of your miserable four-card suits. TODAY'S QUESTION With both sides vulnerable your ortant not to make such a bid if t helps the enemy more than your ide. In today's hand, for example, East was technically correct in bidding four spades. He wanted to each a contract of at least five ;lubs, and he could honestly show :ontrol of the spade suit on the vay to that contract. Psychologi- ally, however, his bid was very noor. It warned the opponents that i slam in clubs was not impossi- le and that a game contract was a. near certainty. When East made a second slam ry by bidding four no-trump, South made a cue-bid that was eally intelligent. It seemed likely o him (with good reason) that tBe pponents could make a contract of ix clubs except against an open- ng heart lead. Since he was de- ermined to bid five spades as a. acrifice against five clubs, South ould afford to bid five hearts on he way. After this intelligent bid by south, East and West had to be atisfied with the 100 points they ould get by doubling five spades. t was no longer possible for them o bid six clubs with any serious _xpectation of making that con- ract. There would be a different story o tell if East simply bid four clubs nstead of making the tactically un- ound cue-bid of four spades. South | would proceed on to four spades, HI- ions and Answers Q—What is the derivation of the title Mrs.? : 'A—"Mrs." is actually the abbreviation of the word "mistress," originally a courtesy title given any woman, married or single. When it became customary to address married women as mistress, th.e pronunciation became gradually corrupted until at last it was "MISS-iz" and the spelling was abbreviated to "Mrs." Q—What type of dog Is a Lhasa Albso? . • - . A.—The shaggy dog known as a Lhasa Abso is a rare Tibetan ter- riiir that probably has more hair per square inch than any other dog in the United "States. Although he is only about It) inches tall, he has almost enough hair to cover a St. Bernard. Q—Are colored glasses unsafe for night driving? A — Use of colored glasses for night driving is not recommended because although they may reduce glare, they also tend to obscure the wearer's vision. Q—Who composed the famous song "Sweet Adeline"? A—Harry Armstrong wrote the music and Richard Gerard wrote the lyrics. The song originally was titled "Sweet Rosalie." The name was changed by the publishers in honor of Adelina Patti, the opera singer. It was written in 1903. Q—How doas wood compare wit! coal in the amount of heat it pro duces? A—A cord of good quality wood will supply as much heat as a ton of coal. * THE DOCTOR SAYS : - Low Blood Pressure Causes Too Much Unnecessary Worry What's Right?

Naugatuck Footwear Plant . . OFUCE RUBBER AVENUE AND WATER STREET NAUGATUCK, CONN. : "Please tell ; me what to do for low blood pressure? All my doctor says is that it is better than high' blood pressure." So writes Mrs. G. and a lot of others are equally interested in the question. I don't know why so many people get disturbed because their blood pressures are lower than what they think should be normal. But Mrs. G.'s doctor was certainly right in saying low blood pressure is better than high. As a matter of fact most people with low blood pressures are well off and can expect a long life. There are few exceptions: There is a condition known as Addison's disease which, among other symptoms, is characterized by a low blood pressure, but this is rare. There are not many other conditions which are accompanied by low blood pressure and which have any serious significance. There are several things which help to determine whether the blood pressure will be low, high or normal: The pump-like action of the heart is one. The elasticity of the arteries is another. In most cases of - below "normal" blood pressure the cause seems to be 1 exceptionally elastic arteries and this is a good thing. For one, it generally means that hardening of the arteries will be slow to develop and this in turn has much to do with the expectation for a long life It is hard to say whether there are any symptoms which can be wn °V° W bl ° 0d P res sure and thing else. Some people who have low pressure also complain ^f* ° f ? 6P ' but this ^ just as from th SS in the mind as jt 's irom the pressure. Even if the blood pressure should have something to do with complaints of this sort, there' is not much that can be done about it. BETTER. LEFT ALONE Theer is no good, safe way to raise the blood pressure and it is better left alone in most cases. If anemia or some other disorder is also present, it should be treated on its own account. Low blood pressure causes a great deal of unnecessary worry. With exceedingly few exceptions the person with 'below normal pressure can consider himself or herself lucky, and does not need to do anything about it. Man Awarded $425 For In jury To Back Workmen's Compensation Comsr. J. Gregory Lynch approved a stipulation which provides for payment of $425* to Stanley Padaigus, 57 Chipman street, Waterbury, for a back injury sustained Dec. 12, 1948, while employed by the Nau- gratuck Glass Co. The commissioner also approved weekly payments of $32 to Anson Moc, Seymour, from H. A. Matthews Mfg. Co., Seymour, beginning April 10, injury to left heel.
