Tuesday. There are many who will agree with him and wlm hope more such programs will be conducted. DO YOU REMEMBER? From The Files of The News 20 Years Ago Florence find Kuthcrinc Brcnnnn of Bridge street left for u vacation of two weeks at Block Island. o—O—o . Leon, W, S., and Oliver B. Clark, Joseph Contois and Clarence Noble took u motor trip over the Mohawk Trail. o—O—o 30 Years Ago Mr. and Mrs. Edward Geary ot Cherry street spent a few weeks with relatives in Pittsfleld, Muss. . o—O—o Mr. and Mrs. Harry Clark of Carroll street were vacationing at Milford, GERMANY LAUNCHES ANOTHER SECRET ^WEAPON Around the Clock Cele Petro of 140 Myrtle avenue, Ansonia, spent a long vacation with Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Jacewicz of 20 Brennan street, Union City Are you selling any of the following—if so, the ceiling price has been lifted, according to the OPA: Ice box and refrigerator deodorizers, cigarette urns, novelty cigarette boxes (other than paper or paperboard) when sold separately, cemetery flower vases with invertible insert, and decorative combs for use as hair oranments, A .local lyricist wrote the following words, wliicli .'ire just waiting t'ur SOITIU- 0110 U» conic- aloiitf with ;i tune. IT there arc any tmie.smiths in the borough, have 'em get in touch with The Column, if lave some notes for this: thev NEW JAPANESE HEAD a mat- world, or The 7-emnval of Premier and "\Var Minister TTideki Tojo as chief of the .Japanese general staff, and his replacement by Gen. Yoshijiro Urnexti may he ter of great impm'Umce 1" the may merely mean a somewhat matter- of-fact shift of generals' from one field to another, Tojo's word on I he morning of July IS, was that "the fall of Saipan has thrust upon Japan a great national crisis, one without precedent." Umexu has boon an army officer for a long lane, lately vice minister in the Department of tlie Army, He served in China in the .'50's. The war is not over. Much water is' still to go over the dam he fore '''e final outcome. But these arc days of great historic import. Flexibility of mind and plan to he ready for any great news, good or bad, is needed bv all citizens. LOVELY ANGEL 'I took a trip to heaven On a of gold And found n lovely Angel So divinely to behold, Chorus: from heaven earth with u "YOUR MIND AND BODY" M. a hove message of Lovely Angel, You came to love. AVith a stroke of your wand you opened my heart, No heavenly power can keep us apart. Lovely Angel, from heaven- above Arc 1 all the angels as sweet" as my 'love. It can't be true though they're in heaven too, 'Cause there's only one lovely AJigel like you. _YXZ SCHOOL FOR ASSESSING OFFICERS Announcement has been made that a • school for Connecticut assessing officers will be held at the 'University «f Connecticut from Aug. 21 to 25. The schooj, which will be the first of its kind in the .state or in New England, should be well attended. Much good can lie accomplished by a study of the important subject of assessing. Perhaps as a result of the studies to be made, some new, uniform and bettor me oils of estimating property values may be adopted. At any rate it will be well for assessing officers to attend (he school's sessions. They will increase their knowledge of the-jute-resting work in which they fire engaged and therein- increase the value of their services to their respective communities. RACER'S PROGRESS Arne Anderson has done it again. The 28-year-old Swedish school teacher, who already held the world's re-cord for the mile, lias now run it in 4 minutes, 1,(J .seconds, a second- under the world-beating figure which he set a year ago. That again was two seconds less than the 4:04.r> mark with which Anderson broke the- world's-record in 1042, A four-minute time for the mile, which has long seemed something never to be attained, looks not impossible today. The records of Anderson and his chief rival, his tY-How-cOuntryman. Guilder Hacgg, slmw the difference between a Tuition that is at war and one that is not. In most civilixed countries athletes like Anderson and Haegg would be in the nrmccl services, 'ff the Olympic games were held today, almost all the events Avoiild probably IK- won by Swedes or Swiss. •Qf. course .the countries at war have no choice. Athletic records seem trifling indeed when national existence is in danger. Franklin Lanesey of Knoll street, Waterbury, Conn., is visiting, with cousin Donald "Specs" Spadola, of Homestead avenue Jackie Quint is up in Maine for a while Gene Dalton's address is: Pfc. 'Eugene E. Dalton, Co. "I", 34th Inf., APO 34, c-o Postmaster, San Francisco. . . . Bertha- Tonaski of Spencer street, George Fail-child, of Fairchilds street, and Arthur Downes of Oak street are patients at Waterbury hospital. "Gabby" Halwick, U. S. Army, is going to celebrate his 20th birthday Saturday. You all can 'send him birthday cards if you address: Pfc. AVlHinm Halwick, Sla. Hosp., Fort .Dix, N.

Rubber Co. central office had an anniversary all her own to celebrate July 24-25 Art Fager, who supervised the last scrap paper drive,.and the other drives previous, deserves a big hand for the success of Naugatuck's effort. Art was on vacation but stayed around in the borough to see that the week's collection ran smoothly. Harold Murtha and his street department were more than a big help also Overheard: Young lady to friend, "I think I'll join the Foreign Legion." Girl friend, ".But Mabel, only a man can join that," Young lady, "I know. That's why I'm going to join it." Then. too. there are Americans who would like to plant a buzz-bomb here and there under some of the departments at Washington. Tlie Chronic'- •••" -.Drinker - • . - I--AM- INCLINED to believe from ordinary observation on the 'streets and in the homes of my beloved country that'the'problem of chronic alcoholism is coming bnck as it did in the last war and the. car.!y years of the peace. The -answer to the problem, is certainly not • si.mplc. Prohibition, for instance, is--emphatically not the answer. I-,et us never have that horror 'again. They used to .say that proh'ibition>would stop crime. To anyone who passed through the. or>;y o£'• crime • during prohibition that is a laugh. . • . .'. The psychology of prohibition Is all wrong. The alcoholic, and in- dued every American, reacts in a very contrary way to taking- something away from him. It puts him on 'his mettle to get some of it anyway. If you can persuade him tne undenirablcness of it hu will let it alone,,,as ho docs murder and theft and embezzlement and evading the income tax, or the draft. . The treatment of chronic alr.n- holism is a medical problem or, perhaps strictly speaking, a . psy-' dialogic problem, and a.s such an. individual'problem, and as such an infinitely troublesome- and pain* taking task. • Alcoholic.* Anonymous In this endeavor I am cnnvinccc that the work of Alcoholics Anon ynious is far more hopeful nnc productive of results than all thi white ribbon crusades can. eve be. There are about 325 groups o Alcoholics. Anonymous in diffcren communities in the United ' States and Canada, numbering abou 12,000 men and women who wcro former chronic alcoholics. •• The oldest members have been continuously sober; for eight to tor years. Their record in reclaiming others is: of those sincerely willing to stop drinking 'CO per cent have done so at once, 25 per cent after a few lapses, and most of the remainder have improved. Their treatment d'raws on .the .resources of medicine, psychiatry, religion -and their own experiences of drinking and recovery. The last in their great natural advantage. How often do doctors and clergymen throw up their hands when after exhaustive exhortation the alchoholic says—"But you don't understand me. You never did any serious drinking .yourself, so how cnn 'you?" .- . Chronic Alcoholics , • The question of whether alcor. holic beverages are good•' or bad docs., not enter-into the argument for the chronic alcoholic. For many, probably most people who get a lift out of an occasional drink, or n stimulus before a meal, or to.- lubricate a social evening it" WALTER WINCHELL Coast-to-Goast .Trade Mark Registered.

But for the individual call.Cd, 1 an alcoholic it is pure poison."-' '•'•" What kind of ' a person an alcoholic is I don't know.'Hc certainly has no one individual personality pattern, I am not at all convinced that he is always basically a. neurotic or apervcrt, although some may be. Nor am I convinced that the formula that he uses alcohol as an escape, or that he has an inferiority complex is invariably true. Nor am I interested in those people. I am interested in the superior man,- who has nothing to 'escape from, who finds that alcohol. .-, at least the ilrst few drinks, lifts him to an even more superior plane', where he sees into the heat-t "of J things, but by that time the alcohol has made som'e sort of a' chemical combination with his ncivous NOW IS PROBABLY the last time to recount this instance of the humorous by-play that went on between F.D.R. and Henry Wallace. When Mae West was suing Frank Wallace for divorce the papers were full of stories headed "Mae West Charges Wallace Unkind to Her." The President scis- sored one out and sent it to the Vice-President with a note (in his own handwriting) reading, "Henry, is this the way 'you treat your women?" "BLACK MAIL" by Henry Hokc -will be in 'the bo.ok stores on the 31st. . .It is better than "Under •Cove.r" because " up-to-dato history on the campaign to disrupt America. .-.If.'indicts by documentation more pro-Nazis over here .than .-the Government indicted at •Washington for the current sedition trials. . ."Black Mail" keeps •you informed on the various "fronts" for American brain- trusts working for Hitler over here. . ."Black Mail" does a digest I (a la Who's Who and What's What) on the various "patriotic" groups which invariably manage to be on the other side—not yours. A publication listed in the first group of Federal indictments, 1'or example. Read Page 51 of "Black Mail." -HOWARD' BRUBAKER in The New Yorker: "Republicans are worrying over the story that .the. President may deliver his acceptance speech from Normandy. They "fool- that this 'would be a brazen aftenipt to' show that the Com- mandcr-in-Chief has something to do with the war." ERNIE PYLE REPORTED the incident of captured Nazi General von Schlicbcn, who squawked to Y.ahk commanders about American photographers' "taking his picture without asking permission. . .And how General Collins reminded Von Schlicbcn that in-the United States there is a free press "and we in the army cannot stop our. newspapers from printing the news and taking ' pictures." In Time (or Life) a few.editions ago, wo .read what the photographer said when Von Schlieben barked: "Oh, I am bored with you American photographers taking my picture." The American' hocus-focus man (who understood 'German) snapped back: 'And I'm- bored taking pictures of ca-pturcd Na'/.i generals." THIS IS THE ; NEWEST Russian go.g overheard at the Madiion.jBar: "So Ivan Ivanovitch -died gallantly in -the. midst of -battle," sobbed Katcriria Mikhailovna Mik- ha'llovitch. "You say he 'uttered' m'y.-n'amc' with his last breath?" "Part of It," replied the returned ipldler," "only 'part of it." 4A' CERTAIN NEW YORK State AN IRONIC FACT is that George M. Cohan never could scribble a successful ditty about baseball, the sport ho loved so much. Cohan, as all Broadway knew, was a Polo Grounds faithful. Yet the two songs he wrote about baseball were never performed more than a few tired limes; 1 even with John McGraw and the Giants .lending themselves to its promotion. Yet Albert Von Tiilzcr's "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" ia .as- .fam'ous as the game itself, and Von Tilzcr saw his first baseball contest only a short while back, after his tune had been played and sung for decades, "Take Me Out, etc.," was not the first baseball song ever writ- .tcn. In J885 a ballplayer named Kelly was an idol up in Boston. A faithful fun scribbled a ditty tagged "Slide, Kelly, Slide." The thrcc-wovd phrase became more popular than the song. Senator .after a nervous breakdown and a 'holiday in a sanitar- um, was pronounced honky-dooly . :Hc returned to the Senate at ystm so that he has to. go . on ntil he is sodden.' ,. There is one .message of : hope, •hich I have .unanimously from yc,- ! 'such superior men'known' to •nri^'.'who- have successfully .recovered 1 ' from-chronic alcoholism. The message is—anybody can give up 'alcohol if he wants-to, and will find himself much happior without it. The chronic; alcoholic thinks he juat^ctfh'tv live^vithbut • his daily 'd'ririk',' ;He.,";can,.-;,;an'd if he ia the supei-iqr'' .niajir.-I.; .want to save he will-find himself..just\-as interested artd'-alcrt" and'very much more sat- Jsfl'Qd'-.with'out-than with. it. A SONG WAS responsible for finishing- a baseball star's promising career when it' looked as though he might develop into another Hubbcll or Walter Johnson, His name was Harry Covalcskic, and he was with the Phillies. One season he established himself by pitching against the Giants three times in flve days (beating them in all starts) and taking a pennant right from under their noses. .The -Giants, ; burncd up, found out. later .that'Covalcskio, as a. kid,." had.'; troupcd in amateur vaudeville "singing "Silver Threads Among the Gold." One' afternoon the' following Summer'. Covalcskic was hurling against the Giants when Irom .their dug-out came the strains of "Silver Threads." The Giants kept this up all during that scries, and other National League clubs followed with the same ribbing. . .In six weeks, Covaleskie was a nervous wreck.'. .The following year ifiaw him fade from baseball completely. •'THEY WOULD HAVE you believe this ackcholly happened in Lindy's, the rendezvous for show folks, gamblers, -hoss players, etc. A patron-.came in and spread the Mirror before him, the headline banner splashed "Roosevelt Will Run." A 'waiter passing paused to glance at the .news.
