New Life With a Pipe By FRANK CAREY WASHINGTON - (AP) I ' v e switched from cigarettes to pipe- smoking. If the national produc-j lion of matches and lighter f l u i d keeps steady, I think I might make It stick. Keeping the pipe burning requires so much time and concentration I've scarcely given a thought to cigarettes. Besides, a variety of compensations have come to light. Far example: --There's a strong cameradcrie among pipe-smokers. They freely swap tobacco and pipe-cleaners-and they welcome a novice as hough he were a lodge-brother. Generous with advice to neo- shytes, they even offer tips on pipe-smoking by wearers of false eeth, which 1 have escaped so far. -I'VE REGAINED a measure of youth in the eyes of my daughters, who say: "Dad, you took positively collegiate." I had been a cigarette smoker for about 30 of my 54 years when the report of the Surgeon General's committee finally prompted me to try to quit. Ironically, I had been reporting scientists' treatises on the health hazards of cigarette smoking for years without giving up cigarettes. In fact, some of my heaviest smoking has been done white writing such stories. WHEN THE WORDS wouldn't come the way I wanted them to, it was. comforting. to light a cigarette and inhale deeply. Maybe too, there was an aspect of hav ing something to do with tern jorarily idle hands. Maybe chewing on a penci WITH A MUSEUM ON THEIR MINDS-New officers of the Junior Curaufr/dub ittto Da?bury Scott-Fanton museum are, from left, Joseph Potoczek, treasurer; Joyce Kartell fecre- ary; James Dyer, president; and Georgia Asmar, vice president. would have the same effect. At any rate, I've found a pipe to be such a pacifier. Meanwhile, I've picked up some tips about pipes and the art and science of pipe smoking. HERE'S A RUNDOWN: --Keep your new pipe clean, but you'll never .really enjoy it until you build a layer of carbon inside the bowl. --You'd do well to line up a stable of pipes--one for every day in the week--to assure keeping all of them cool-smoking. --Don't rush your smoking; and don't chain-smoke. If you do, you'll wind up with a tongue that 'eels like teams of red ants had been at it. --Never inhale--you'll blow your hat off. --You can never hope to get over that ceaseless match-scratching; it's just a cross of pipe- smoker has to bear. However, with practice, you'll develop a "smoking rhythm" which will help you keep the fire lit. --BE WARY of smoking your pipe while driving an automobile. A sudden turn of your head to he left when your car window s closed can loosen a tooth or :wo. --You're out of luck II your wife is finicky about the aroma of strong tobacco saturating the living-room curtains. --An apparently cold pipe can sometimes burn a hole m a pocket. However, your pipe has other advantages beyond smoking pleasure. In subfreezing weather, it provides a bit of heat for the nose; and, cradled in the hand, it can prevent frostbite. cieiy of Painters in Casein.

A move will be made at the meeting of the City Council Tuesday night to give the city fathers an opportunity to duck their responsibilities and let the voters make a decision for them. Refuge In Referendum Councilman Frank N. Zullo has included on the agenda of the meeting a proposal that erning body authorize a referendum on the question of establishing a public 18-hole golf course on the 100-acre tract that the city owns off pillow street. Whether we favor a golf course now is beside the point as it concerns Mr. Zullo's proposal. It appears to us, that during every administration, when a real hot issue rises to plague the people's representatives, someone quickly seeks refuge in a referendum. If Mr. Zullo or any other member of the Council feels that referendum s on any issue which do not mean a change in the City Charter should be conducted, they should press for a referendum which would give the voters a town meeting form of govern ment. We would hail such a move if it wasn't so impractical in a city the size of Norwalk. To its everlasting discredit, the Council of two years ago, facet with- stiff opposition to the plan lo locate a new city hall in the former Mathews estate, did whai Mr. Zullo is now proposing. The result of Ihe city hall referen dum is history which Ihe Counci of that period cannot be proud of WE DO NOT know how Mr Zullo stands of the proposal to develop the 100 acres into a gol course but the fact is he has been given the mandate by his elec lion to the legislative body tc speak his piece and cast his vote We would support a move made by any member of the Counci to conduct as many public hear ings on the issue as are deemec RidgeHeld Native Feted, In Priesthood 40 Years RIDGEFIELD -- The Rev. Francis H. McGlynn, C.S. Sp., a Ridgefield native who served as provincial superior of the Holy Ihost Fathers in the Unilcd States from 1949 lo 1958, was lonored recently at an open louse at St. Mary's seminary, Ferndale, West Norwalk. The occasion marked his 40th anniversary lo the priesthood. He has spent most of his days in the priesthood, as well as most of his days is « seminarian, within 20 miles of his Ridgefield birthplace. Educated Here A son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Peter McGlynn, Falher McGlynn attended schools here and Danbury High school before enrolling at St. Thomas seminary, Hartford. He then entered the Congregation of the Holy Ghost and immaculate Heart of Miry and took his novice year at St. Mary's Seminary. He continued there for his philosophy and theology courses and was ordained at Ihe seminary March 8, 1924. He came back to Ridgefield as assistant master of novices at the new Holy Ghost Fathers Novitiate on Prospect Ridge, serving there untii 192$ when hi went to Rome or graduate studies at the Ore gorian university. After receiving a doctorate in sacred theology, Father McGlynn returned to the Norwalk semi nary as professor of moral the ology. In 1D40 he look on addi ional duties as director of th "erndale Retreat League.

Calif. ecessary but we fail to see why e voters should be made to ake the decision at the polling laces. Mr. Zullo and any other mem- «rs of the City Council who ask or referendums which are not equired by either-local or stale iw, should realize they were lected to make these decisions or the voters. The voters have right to assume that the peo- le they place in office are strong jeople who will fight to the very nd for the things they stand for nd fight just as hard against the hings they are opposed to. The way the system works, and is a good system, the voters et to know how their represen- atives re-act to the problems acing the city and en the basis if their voting record either re- lect them or booth them out of 'ffice. The voters do not expect hat every time a controversial ssue arises they are going to be :alled uponl lo make the deci- iions for the persons who wehe ilecled in the first place to do hat very thing.

As yet, there as been no official recommenda- ion lo the City Council that the and be used for this purpose. While, by all accounts the committee appointed to make a recommendation to the Council as o the best use of the land and he Recreation and Parks commission have indicated publicly hat they favor a playground for hose devoted to chasing a little white ball around the fairways nd the rough, the legislative aody has not as yet been petitioned to make use of the acreage for golfers. From what we know of the atus of Ihe proposed golf course, Mr. Zullo is asking his fellow members of the legislative body :o place the matter on the voting machines before he or any others m the Council have any definite knowledge of what the committee plans to recommend for the 100- acre tract. We ask at least that Mr. Zullo save his ammunition until he knows what he is shooting at. FAA Ruling Grounds Paradise Air Lines SAN FRANCISCO -- (UPI) Paradise Air Lines has lost a bid for permission to resume operations halted by the Federal Aviation agency following a falal crash ot one of its planes in the High Sierras March 1.
