It does not take long for any family which reads a iifwspaper to accumulate several pounds, and all is needed as the paper situation is critical. The local scrap paper drives are well organized and the collections are made by" men of the borough's street department in a very efficient and systematic manner. So, to you who read The .Daily News, we say, save your copies of the paper, bundle them and have them ready to turn in when this next collection is made. It should also be remembered Chat our governriient is urging householders to salvage their-tin cans, as tin is a commodity .that is greatly needed to insure a continuous supply of numerous articles .used by uiir soldiers on t'he fighting fronts. Those who have neglected to sal- vag'e tin ca-ns in the past should not fail to'perform that patriotic duty from now on.' • GUARD AGAINST INFANTILE PARALYSIS DO YOU REMEMBER? From The Files of The News 20 Years Ago Florence Larson, Ruth and Hazel Nelson, Muriel Hnppy, Kenneth Bcntlcy and Herbert Atwood were, among tho«c present at a party for Alice Crosby, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William D. Crosby of Walnut street. o—O—o Mrs. Murpnrot McEvoy, and Afjncs and Alice Brcun were at Bay View In Mill'ord, at W, V. Schmit/.' cottage. o—O—o 30 Years Ago Frank Vaughn nnd George McCann took positions with the Connecticut Co. o—O—o Edward O'Brien, local barber, stopped a runaway horse find wag-on on North Main street. Mr. O'Brien brought the horse to a. halt before it could do any damage. Because of the. alannittg spread of infmitm: paralysis, the federal health authorities are asking the cooperation of parents in a program to protect children from that dread disease. 1 "They suggest that from now until the end of the polio season in Into September constant checks lie made for headaches, fever, nausea,, sore throat and stiffness of the neck, arid to call'a physician immediately if any symptoms of paralysis appear. "They advise that children be kept out of crowds and away from swimming pools unless it can be determined Unit contacts fhcrc are no greater than normal contacts at home. The advice of the government authorities is well worth heeding. It may. fi followed, keep many youngsters from be- eomiing paralysis victims. STILL SAFE The nation is still safe. No group has been <jnicker to see violations of popular rights than the American Civil* Liberties Union. This body's annual report,'just published, finds' that after more than two years of war the bill of rights remains unshaken. Only' two college teachers have been dismissed for their opinions, There lias been no important interference-with public meetings. Loyal Americans of Japanese descent 'have been singularly free from insult and violence. Gratifying, too, is the news that 1043 saw but' one .lynching. That is at least jv -partial setoff against: such alarming phenomena as the race riots in .Detroit' and elsewhere. Certainly the Axis countries can tell no such story.

Around the Clock THE^(AXEHS) MASTER Gregory Phalen of North Main street, who, with his wife anil two children i* taking things easy at his cottage on the II o lisa tonic river this week, has invited Howie Meyers), Joe Mult-sky and Billy K'ovaloski. to spend the coming weekend with the family. The boys, however, refused the invitation, because "Grog's" cottage is locatud high up on a windy hill. The path leading up to the cottage is in very poor condition, and added that, it is almost verticle. Mr. Muleslcy claims that if the hoys started up the hill" at C o'clock (in a Saturday night, they would arrivf at the front door of the cottage sometime late Sunday, morning and would have t:o rush down the' 90 degree slope to make the last church services in time.

Its specificity is shown in the fact that it often induces a headache in those not subject to migraine. Its action is KCnorally ascribed to its ability to constrict thu blood vessels ir.sido tha' cranium. And theoretically this should work in miwr.-iino. because the ache is pretty well proved to be duo to dilatation of the blood vessels on one side of the head. This is shown by the flushing of one side of the face during an attack. And several. examinations of the hack of the eyes with an ophthalmoscope .have shown the retinal vessels dilated in one eye. . . .
