During the meeting thc Obligation ceremony was exemplified by officers of Columbian Rebekah lodge.

Green, when inlecviewed by The News today indicated that the postal business alone-here -in thc post eight years liad increased from .$81,- 291.6S in 1936' to; $ ( 116.749.53 fa 1944, with I.hc fiscal postoffjce year ending on June 30. This is an increase of almost 100 per cc-Rii. in' l.he dollar vaJuc of just the sale of stamps and stamped • envelopeui. Postmaster Green stated that in the figures for 1944 the local office has had the benefit of only a few mon.;hs of the recent increase in posta' rales. This increase will make a tremendous difference in> the figures for Naugaluck's postal business for 1945, the locaJ postoffiee head believes. For the quarter year of April, May ajid June, posljj business was as follow^, for the past several years: 1940, SS.359.SOr 1941, J7,- •129.60; 1942, $T,7S5.08: 1943, $S,644.40; and. 1944, S11.1SS.1S. In the money order/department, in 1943, there were 15,231 orders issued for $291.743.36, and in 1944 there were 10,626 orders issued for 5140,715:65. Postmafitor Green.point- ed out that the mclhod of paying federal taxes has changed greal- ly in the past two years, file payroll withholding- pian paying: for many a worker's income lax as ha earns it and consequently there is no need for further payment at the end of l-hc period. This cuts down 'money ovder requiramcn-ts for in a n y workers, Postaiioster Green slated. The Naugatuck post oflice in 1943 cashed 2.5G4 money orders, for S57.947.14. ninl in 19-14 cashed 2.57S money orders with a face value of $67,892.99. The monthly business survey of the Naugatuck Chamber of Commerce reveals that there was quite a bit of building activity in Naugatuck during the past month. Permits -were issued by Building Inspector Andrew C. Bentley for S<l,. r KX) in new construction, consisting- of eight one-family houses in various parts of the town with permit holders heine John Nixon. Matthew Karbowjcz and Walter Bcebe. Mr. Nixon has permits for live new 5-room houses now in the process of construction on Nixon avenue. In addition the Eastern Malleable Iron Co. secured a. building permit for $20,500 covering.altera- tions to its olllce building on Bridge street. The total in new building and alterations is $62,000, a not insignificant sum for a single month.- Savings dcposjts for thc month are approximately $200,000 higher than for the month of May, »nd approximately $1,300,000 higher than for June of 1943. The report is as 'follows: Telephones: June 19«, 4.S45; May 1944, 4,840; June 1943, 4,714. Postal Receipts: June 1944, $11,- 1SS; May. 1944,,$9,547; June 1943, $8,644. ' - . .
