ENSURING TREE SPEECH The American terms of surrender for Germany now being discussed l>y the European Advisory commission in London -contain a free-speech pros'ision practical and, we believe, urgently necessary. It would give the Allies complete control of communications inside Germany, and would prohibit. Germany from controlling nuy fommimicntions outside its own frontiers or interfering with its citizens' rights tu listen to foreign broadcasts. Similar terms were included .-Mid accepted in the Italian surrender. And it is expected that- the United States will later ask all non-Axis nations to cooperate after the wur in a voluntary program of free access to news, speedy transmission at uniform, .low rates, and unrestricted communication between all countries. War has induced excessive government control of news, among ne,:lrn!s as well as belligerents, which makes a future world agreement on free speech highly desirable. But in the case of Ger- inzmy. the .history of the past 10 years demor.'-.craU.'S that some such' drastic terms as the American proposal outlines will be vital to lasting peace. The Nazi, government hiunc.hed the first attack of this war not against_Poland, but against (ho freely expressed thoughts of free men. The burning of the books was really the opening battle, and subsequent suppressions of 'free speech and the' access to broadcasts of- truth from abroad, irndcr penalty of imprisonment or death, were as important to-'i-]it- ler as the conquest uf Xi.irway and the blitzkrieg against France, The-diet of lies which the Nazi leaders fed Germany was carefully planned. But all possibility of free thought hud to he removed before the Gorman people could be aroused to fanatical enthusiasm for wnr with talk of encirclement, Jewry, and siiper-statisin, before the minds of German youth could be warped into the perverted mold or naxism. iSo Germany first ii;id lo be insulated from truth. Then Hie process had to be repented in I he occupied countries. For truth wns ,-is dangerous as guns in the hands of people detsined for a thousand years'of slavery in the mad, grandiose plant to the "new order," The invention of printing was largely responsible for bringing mankind out ot the ignorance and superstition of the Middle Ages, into the modern world of free thought and individual liberty. Hit- Jor would have .returned Kuropo to the Middle Ages by denying free access to with control, of press and communications. Jle almost, succeeded. DO YOU REMEMBER?

''Here we began t.lie war," says Premier Ohm-chill, "and here we will see it ended," That, gesture is as fine as was the behavior of the ancient ifomari senate which, when the northern harbarians overran the city, proudly kept their seats in the senate -chamber and ignored the intruders. On that famous occasion Uic invading Germans were so impressed by Koman dignity that they spared the senators' lives. Would their descendants be so chivalrous now, rt' they swarmed into the British House of Commons? This, however, is merely a rhetorical question. The modern barbarians will not get that far. Nazis arc people who want to eat their cake and everybody's else's, too. ' Staff Sgt.

NKCBOTA 1'RESIDENTIA Although"tho White House is the last place in the world (except 'for Grant's Tomb) you'd expect to find a gne-nmn, some of our Presidents, have fashioned bon mottos 1 that would have'carried them berths.on leading radio comedians' payrolls:' Calvin Coolidfrc^ .generally 'ac-' neplcd as the tiKhiost-lippud ,of Uic Chief Executives, has. several nif ties to his credit. A Washington correspondent • questioned him about his reaction to Ruper H u fr h o s' biography '. debunking many of the -legends about George Washington. Cpolidge ' gazed .oui the window and .then muttered r.nsally: "I notice the Washington Monument is still standing." In a discussion, on the proper use of a word, Grover" Cleveland wa.: surprised to hear a Senator refer to his source.."is ."Daniel Webster's dictionary".'. ."But'.my dear Senator," said Cleveland.' "No.-ih made the dictionary". .."Don't be'silly," replied the Senator, .giving him a scornful look. ' ';Noa'h built the ark." Theodore Roosevelt -had; this, ogend on his White''.House desk: •The v.-ilue of a -s/jii'lc—costs roth- US—but creates..much. It is rest to the weary—daylight to the dis-. couraged—sunshine '.to the sad — and nature's best antidote for trouble! Yes—it cannot be bought, Begged, borrowed or stolen — for t -is something that is no earthly good to anybody—until it is given away," . . '.- ,. A Congressional committee was meeting with President Wilson, and, as you can well imagine, many of the good Representatives verc shaking'the walls with their oud, but unrational, oratory. The Prez listened patiently .for .1 while, and then related'this story: "I am •ctnindcd of the old Colored man down in Virginia who was riding a mulo, and who was caught in a A large Republican meeting was .attended by a ; amall boy offering for sale four puppies, so young- their .. eyes- were still unopened. "Get your McKinley pups!" he, shouted, and enjoyed .'t brisk, sale. .Tn;o weeks' later ,the Democrats had a meeting in the sume town, and the little' boy was. again seen huwking .an armful of pups.

By ERICH JJRANDEIS Quite a few years ago when " started in newspaper work, m> first editor, Ekhnond of .the San Francisco Exam Liner, gavt me the basic rule for being a. gooU reporter: "Always be a spoclalor, never a participant,' "To be a good newspaperman, you must first of all be unbiased, you must be impartial, you must see and present both sides of u story." . . 1 have tried to live,up .to that rule, but I'havc found it extremely difficult at times. To be impartial, unbiased, and jiist. • is a' good., r.ule^ for. any Jiu- man-"" follow, but il is hard. . " do you intend to do," an interviewer asked Honest Abe, "if you aro ejected?" "My goodness," he said, "what shall I do if I'm not elected?" • Of course we can't 1 prove it, but .George Washington is .alleged to huvc become wearied with an Official investigation which paraded a .score- of experts through his chambers, "It is my opinion," he Is quoted, "that calling many witnesses to prove one fact is like adding a large quantity of water to a 1 small quantity of brandy—it makes it weak." One of the "human" incidents said to have helped elect Gen. G'rtint was the yarn about a friend who nsked the General to pardon technical deserter, condemned to death.. Grant- considered for a. moment and replied: "Well, I think the boy can do us more good above ground than underground." Teddy Roosevelt had no patience with lip-service patriots. "Major." he. once told an underling, "I al- ,vays observe that those persons vho have a great deal to say about being ready to shed their last drop of, blood arc amazingly particular about the lirst drop!" • • When the British soldiers were loient thunderstorm while .pass-..).about, to lay down their arms at ng through a dense forest, Al- hough he' trembled at the horri- ylng peals of thunder, he was for the occasional flashes f lightning' which enabled him to ee his way. At last he prayed: O Lawd, if it's jcs' the same to ou, I'd rather hev a little loss oise an' a little more light'!" The Alcazar theater is sporting a new face. Painters have been working on the outside front of the building for the past few/days The second concert rendered by the Naugatuck Community band was again well received by a crowd of several hundred people. Even the youngsters were not quite so noisy a's at the first performance three weeks ago. Union City will be able to hear strains of classical, semi-classical and familiar music soon, probably a week from Wednesday, as a carnival is now in operation on Bridge street. When Wilison was faced with score opposition on his League of ations proposals, the . objection, [t-can't be done," was familiar to is cars. At such times'he' 1 would relate this story:" A man "was 1 , telling his son a bedtime story'about an alligator . It."was" creeping .up. behind a turtle, with Its mouth wide open. Finally it .was within reach but just .as its great jaws were snapping shut,. the turtle made a spring, ran,up a tree and escaped. "Why, dad," said . the boy, "how can a turtle spring and climb a tree?" "Great Scott," replied the father, "he had to!" Yortttown', Washington said to the American Army: "My boys, lot there be no rejoicing^ over, a conquered foe. When they lay down their arms, don't huzza; posterity will huzza for you." FDRoosevclt, commenting'on the promise of aid recently sworn by a small pro-Allied nation, told ,'a newspaperman that it rtiminde'd: him of the story of the Barbados:' Island and the last war; The Barbados, with a standing army of 12: men, was taking bows because it had "stood ready." It-was- later learned that the island had indeed "stood ready." In the .early days of the war, it was disclosed, ; .u cablegram was dispatched to military leaders •. ot..the Allied com> mand. "Success,"-it. read. "Barbados is behind'yoii!" "•' When James A. Garfleld was president of Hiram College a man brought up his' son to be entered as a student;' He 1 wanted' the .boy to take a course shorter than the regular one. "My son can" never, take all those studies," said the; father. • "He wants to get through more quickly. Can't you arrange it-'fbr-'hi'm?"-,:;-. '"C)h, : yes,'.' said the President-to- .bc.• •' "He can take a short course. It all depends on what you want to make of him. When .God wants an.o'ak He takes a hundred years, but He takes only two months to make a squash." ; ;']:Af;"Teheran 1 " ; 'Sta!ih drove home .related the Premier, "asked for the loan ot a rope.

I saw girls -;in . shorts and slacks and men in sports clothes and certainly not on war errands. • Be unbiased, I said lo myself, soe bblh sides of the slory. I had furthermore read, and heeded, the admonition not to waste a. drop of gasoline, not to drive .an unnecessary mile. And what did I sec? Cars with, license plates from Illinois and Massachusetts, from'-Ohio and from Pennsylvania, • One sporty convertible with a California .license contained five rollicking youngsters, singing loudly as .they drove a'.ong — and on their windshield was ar.i "A" sticker! Be impartial, 1 said to myself, remember what the wise old editor said ,to you. When I complained to a respected and successful man. about the fact that ,wo didn't have - enough ration points lo buy a steak, he laughed and said: "Don'i b« n sap. I'll take you over to a buvch- er who'll give you all the steak .you want without rn.tion> points." I thanked him and said: "No, I gucs.^ I'll worry along 1 without sl.eak," Be a spectator.
