The Boy Scont Movement has boon adjudged one of the most potential factors in the promotion of world peace. Its sprout influence in international friendship and #ooil-will lias been constantly furthered by Scout Jamborees, visits and correspondence, across the seas, .In more recent years it lias seen examples of world-wide helpfulness. For instance, the Boy Scouts oi' America, which marks its, .'i"t)i anniversary during Boy Scont. week, starting today, lias si "World Friendship Fund of voluntary gifts by its members; Thus i'ar over $110,0.00 has gone to help Boy Scouts in ',','2 nations overseas to rebuild their units ,.In addition 400 eases, or twenty tons, of. Scout Uniforms and equipment, given in the Scouts' own "SLivts-Oi't'-Uiu'-Baeks" campaign have gone to Scouts of 13 lands. These international aspects of the Hoy Scouts are worth examining. The Scout Oath and Law, with slight variations in different countries, are known the world around. Scouting has promoted international good-will and friendship by emphasizing those points which nations have in common, not their differences. The Scout Program is based upon activities that are fundamental to boyhood the world around. Camping and life in the open attracts all boys, regardless of the language they speak. Always Another Door A (i2-year-old GT. in Decatur, III., is back at the books. He started college- at the University of Illinois in 1907. He went to work before he finished, enlisted, in World War T, took up his job after the jirmistice.'When World War IT came he and his two sons donned their country's uniform. Now he's a. junior at .himcs Milliken University, studying engineering and intending to keep at it until he gets his degree. .Many people at 62 think of life as about, done with them, or they with it. Th(;y can see no more stimulating or exciting prospects in the years that are left. The ^Decatur man looks at it differently. Keeping abreast, of his younger classmates is doubtless strcnous a.t times, classmates is doubtless strenuous at times, but it's never dull. Not all 60-year old can go to school, but they can be learners. The kingdom of contentment is made of people inspired by that divine discontent which spurs them to keep on improving the mind. Democratic Japs Japanese education has been facing n crisis. At Nngoya sixteen hundred students turned out their teachers and introduced a new system of education, which they call "teaching control." The most interesting part of it is that the kids insist on having "democratization." Apparently there wasii't anything that might bo called a riot, in the American fashion. They just took over and started introducing their own ideas. There may be something to it. B'nt what a jump from the quiet, courteous old Japan that we ignorant westerners thought, we knew! Frisky Oliorliu undergraduates, \vli.o. lust, year hoisted n pair oi pajamas to the top ot? tho college flagpole, this year rnn up tlie Red flag'. Judging from past performances, the House of Representatives' Rankin Committee on Un-American Activities may seize upoji this as proof that Communism has captured Oherlin College and will call for the dismissal of the president and professors. A little .liumor helps to maintain balance in such matters.

The regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. was held at the home of Mrs. Anna H. DeVoir, 04 Hillside. avenue. Around The Clock Gardner Wood when, asked the other day what, he intends to do -with .the 30 acres of land he recently purchased on Rubber avenue said he was going to grow apple trees and strawberries. He c'ould do worse, but we'll wager there will bo a brand new housing development in the not too distant future. Mrs. Henrietta Peaker's spare time lately has been taken up by interpreting letters written in German . . . several residents receiving mail from the European country flock to the genial East Waterbury road woman with their missives to be deciphered. One of the most touching poems we've read recently came from the 1 pen of Dom "Lefty" Nardncci, now somewhere in the wilds, of Korea, with Uncle Sam's Army. . . . The poem was in the nature of beautiful tribute to Dom's former'em- ployers, Bill a-nd Orion Corey. That blue bird reported seen in the borough several days ago had better be ou of this; area, or it'll be a dead pigeon. Spring isn't here yet. Apologies to Henry Baglcy. An aroiind-the-clock item in Wednesday's paper said that Mr. Bagley had sustained a wound on his nose. The error was due to a case of mistaken identity. The incident happened, but not to Mr. Bagley and our thanks to Henry for his fine attitude. Quite a few motorists pay no heed to the stop sign at Highland avenue and Walnut street. Funny how some drivers will gamble their lives, and the lives of others, to win a few seconds. Harold C. Lewis is back in the swing oi ; things after a recent illness. . . .

In addition to his managerial duties for the Naugatuck High School swimming team,- Bud DiMaria also does an outstanding job as press contact man. .... Joe Finke is thinking of putting his Rams basketball team on a diet of vitamin capsules if they don't break into, the win column soon. If Joe tries the experiment, the High School Vets will watch it with interest. Helen Zembruski was missing from her desk at the high school for a few days recently, because of a severe cold. . .. . Friends say that Lois Smith, supervisor-of publicity for the Juniorettcs, is giving some thought to a. career in newspaper advertising. Other members of the Jimiorettes say that, Lois has shown considerable talent for this type of work. Bill Benson and Mrs. Bill are ardent followers of the High. School basketball team and are seen at almost every game. Bill is a former Greyhound. . . . Chuck Waskowitz, who is doing publicity for several local outfits, finds his time about equally divided between the typewriter and gas pump these- days. . . . Wild Wilberforce Lang says the secret of his outstanding performance against the Leavenworth Tech. Tigers, was the result of close adherence to first principles in basketball, i. e. put the ball in the basket yourself, but prevent the fellows on the other team from, doing.

That all our sins are rather dull and gray, That he who wins is always he who dares .. And nothing is as dead as yesterday.

"It stank," said the other. "Ev- .cry Ume I opened my eyes somebody was being murdered."

"It carries you!" , ti When George Jean Nathan was told that all actors have a certain amount of ego, the critic quipped: "Yes, sometimes they think -they are good—and sometimes they think nobody else is."

Broadway is a .place, where there are many friends but very little friendship. The double-cross la 30 common that " even the closest cronier, never completely trust each other. The phenomenon inspired one table-squatter Lo observe: "If you wnnt to hold Broadway friends, ncvor put their friendship to a test." That, recalls H. L. Mencken's wily admonition: "One of the most mawkish human delusions is the notion that friendship should be life-Ions, The fact is that a man of. resilient mind outwears his 'friendship just as certainly as •he. outwears his ;ove affairs am 1 , politics. They become threadbare, and every act and a'.titude that they involve becomes an act of hypocrisy." Lovi! » la Freud: All romance is a manifestation or se;Move, no matter how virtuous the disposition. Xt. is born out of loneliness and fatigue, and cannot exist without imagination and deception. It lasts only as long as the magic holds, and then evaporates. When it is over, how little of lovo even the lover understand?. We are not trying to please another 30 much as we arc spending useless time dreamincr and picturing ourselves as wo would like to think the.other will see us. We play up our emotions so much that we actually believe it is so. In reality we arc madly in love with ourselves, in love, not with the love object but with tho ideal we created. We become oosesbed, all common sense is blacked out, we think, we work, we net, under temiational strain, Thp mind is ten.se, the body nervous.
