I.t will be interesting tt compare personal reactions of a homecoming oC last March and this March. Life- in Berlin has changed considerably during the last'year and I am wondering if there arc any noticeable changes in Naugatuck, Connecticut, U. S, A. I know that the days of "Wcl- comoback Soldier" arc over and that there are stil! a few sad farewells of newly inducted' youngsters who seem to think there isn't any more i'un now that the fighting is over, but to a returning soldier or civilian ohcre will always be a "Wecome Home" and there will always be .1 fi'.d farewell. It is a welcome sight to visit the old haunts, to sou thfi same maple-lined streets, thn corner drug-.itore, your amiable grocer and neighbor, your smiiinp attendant at the movie theater and the cop en the corner who seems lo bo always there watching .out for you. All a, r those things typical of a small town, small town with a. big heart! Yi'.s, it will be a sad farewell when tho time comes to go bnck to a big town with a smnll heart. Therefore, if I remember the big he-art of the small town, life in l'.:c big town can be bearable.

It is hard tu say wnat I will do with two months, visits to old :'ru-nds there certainly will be, doubtless I will lie a stranger in my own_ back yard, for I know through tho Nauatuclt NEWS that Fern street has been extended and that old neighbors havo left, and in August 18-15, today the old bulldinjjs had ,their war paint removed "and" stand while and brilliant in ; the January snows, trafflo has increased 300 per cent, a vehicle passing the corner of Kron- prinzenallee and Saargemundes- trasse on the average of one a minute and three a minute during the noon rush..An enlisted man's club "Club 48" occupies this corner and at night the neon sigh burns brig'htly with the outline of the US there for all to sec. Golf Course Jn !!>e woods opposite the cornerstone to "Truman Hall" was laid in October lfl-15.

The bus lines have been consolidated into a good workinc order, 15 new Chevy buses have supplanted the old German double deckers, route-s have been shortened so that you can go anywhere in the Amcrncan sector without once transfer!.IK to a. con- noctinc route.

Berlin Coming Back So .Tftor a year wo find Berlin slowly regaining its fcot and slowly it is .Retting the reputation once more of beins: an international city.
