JUI-Y U6, 1!M4 COAL DEFICIT Nauyatuck coul users;, in common with consumers of Unit kind ot' liutiUuy t.'iiol 'throughout the country, are likely to i'md it hard to .keep their homos comfortably warm during' the coming winter. 1'rcst'iit indications are that the government's plan to allow them less than their normal supply will not be chunged. There is rather sad news for them in the fact that a coal deficit of collie 21,000,000 tons is making and will make it necessary for consumers to burn less this winter. .Residents of Virginia, West Virginia, North and South Ciiroliiui, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North and South Dakota are to be limited to nine-tenths of their normal supply, says the Office of War .'Information. New Knghind and the Middle Atlantic states will have only seven-' eighths of thoir normal supply of fuel. "The deficit is divided in to' 10,000,000 tons of bituminous coal, antl o.OOO.OOO of .anthracite. Heavy military requirements, says the Solid Fuels Administration, added to manpower losses, have been responsible. .Results of strikes of yesteryear, are showing up now. Some of these consumers are in very cold -states—Maine, for instance, and Minnesota. Upper Michigan will not enjoy its shortage. As a matter of fact, oven Georgia and Florida will not be any too happy over theirs. The consumer c?m do two things to Jielp. One is tn put in as much coal as he ciui 'now.. Home storage relieves the yards. The other is to lay in warm underwear and sweaters. .Boasting that the family can take 00 degrees and like it has been known to make some oil sufferers more cheerful. It might work with coid, but we doubt it. Xew Knglauders know ho\v hard it is to keep their homes warm when the mercury drops to several degrees below Hero and how quickly water pipes can freeze. and burst under such conditions. They should not require any urging to get in as soon as possible the supply nf coal to which thoy are entitled and to use it economically and wisely so that their allot meiit. will last until the days and nights of /ero weJithcr have passed. 20 Years Ago Dorothy Fitzgerald, of Bradley street, who waa graduated from Dunbury Normal school in June, 102-1, was appointed teacher at Center school In Beacon Falls. , 0 __O—o Hawley's Hardware store waa broken Into, but thieves did not succeed in stealing anything.

You see, God. they told me you didn't exist And like a fool I believed all this. Last night from a shell hole I saw your sky; I figured right then they had told me u lie. Had I taken time to see things you made I'd have known they weren't calling u spade a spade. I wonder, God, if you'd shake my hund; Somehow I feel that you will understand. Funny, I had to come to this hellish place Before I had time to see your face. Well, I guess there isn't much more to aay, But I'm sure glad, God. I met you today. I guess the zero hour is here But I'm not afraid since I know you're near. The signal: well. God, I'll have to go. I .like you lots, this I want you to knuw. Look now, this will be a horrible fight— Who knows, I may come to your house tonight. Though I wasn't friendly to you before, I wonder, God. it you'd waifat your door. Look, I'm crying: me? shedding tears. I wish I had known you these many years! Well, I have to go now, God—goodbye: Strange—since I mot you I'm not afraid to die.

But perhaps his thinking is Car ahead of his time as Wilson's was in 1918—and that, in a world wedded to facts and business, is a disadvantage. Tt, is too soon to say .final farewell to Henry. There arc other capacities in which his roal'values may find more useful fields than the vice-presidency. Truman is known to most Americans only through his Truman committee, •whose conduct, has-won thoir respect. His acceptance speech was a model of sense and brevity.

The Liver's Ills THE LIVER has always seemed to mankind a sort 'of legendary sent of trouble Wc are inclined to -say on. bad days that we arc'"liverish."

"Choler" .means, bile, anil melancholia means 'literally black bile! so to be choleric or mean- cholic, according to" mediaeval thought, means to have some part of the liver secretion in the ascendancy. The modern physician is nojt very far behind'the thought of the populace in his-conceptions of liver physiology..

And I'm not prepared to deny or .affirm its trulTr But I do notice certain signs arid' portents that indicate women, Lip and coming women, had better be practicing up on feminine wiles if they want to continue to hold their "sphere of influence," whatever that' overrated think may be. Among the signs and portents just hinted at arc the women about to-be brought into the political foreground. I . refer of course to Mrs. Dewcy and Mrs. Brickcr. Both these charming women are gentle, soft-voiced and so determinedly unopionated that you won- 'der-if they are speaking the truth when they say almost in unison: "I really, haven't thought much about that matter. I leave.such things to my husband." The trouble about women is that when opinionated they are so terribly opinionated. They know all there is to know about all there is to known about. When women first began to be smart in public, having got bored with that sanctified role of "the power behind the throne," they were a little grim to behold. They wore plain clothes and plain complexions. They behaved this way because they thought, poor dumb things, that men would respect -them more. • They gave up guile and double-' , dealing and other accomplishments, by which . they had been .earning their'bed and board since "the , v days--when the first amoebra set up joint housekccping'with the • second amoeba in a prehistoric mud bank. .

War is so elemental a pursuit that it brings -the thoughts and ideals of .human 'beings back to fundamentals. To home and family. The millions.of men who have gone off to battle have little concern with opinions and - rights. They want to get back to a-home and a women they love in the home. The home bocy is due for a revival in popularity, his is the conviction of theorists who believe they can sec the pendulum swinging the other way—the other way from the- lilcanor Roosevelt type of woman.
