Several German divisions, including grenadier regiments, were '-annihilated in the bitter battle, of the ; frontier. • One Russian dispatch says towns. :ui(l villages west of the frontier had been set afire by Na/.i demolition squads applying the scorched earth technique to their homeland for the first time. Once across the bordering river, the Russians will be operating on open plains devoid of natural obstacles—an ideal terrain for tanks —stretching from Insterburg. to Gocnigsberg, the capital of 'East Prussia.

IS—(UP) —A 33-yeiir-old Lexington mother is recovering from the effects of accidentally gas. Mrs. Mary Alien was overcome by fumes from an open jet in a stove at her sister's Somcrville home. A neighbor discovered Mrs. Allen's tlona. The .Waterbury official Indicated that Niiugaluck Is the only place Immediately -'adjacent to Waterbury that would not be effected by the. rise or fall of Industry in. the Brass City, aaylng that all of the sm'Hll feeder towns hereabouts depend to n great extent, on Waterbury for a livelihood for Its residents. Naupatuck. however, Mr. Smith, indicated, has such a diversification of industry, and the town itself Is so large that it is well able 10 stand on its own feet, under any kind of depression or boom, or any other situation that might arise. The Watcrburian staled that this being the case, the working together of the two Planning Commissions and the ironing out of mutual problems where the lines. of the two places adjoin, will be 'surrounded the German-held town of Anhecy .in Huuto-Savoro.

In regard to sub-division of acreage- for building developments, Mr. Smith declared that Waterbury insists that plans of the proposed development' be on file with the City Planning Commission before any lots on the development arc sold. If this procedure .is -not followed a fine of $100 can be assessed for every lot that is sold there, he stated. . .Developers must finish roads with S-inches of xrH'vcl and two coats of oil before they ar» accepted by the city, grade Ikies must be passed on and building or-front porch nes set up in addition to water, .sewer, etc, Mr. Smith stated. It has been proved, Mr. Smith Ulcged. that this procedure is no i handicap in-selling the lots as they command a higher price when all improvements and conveniences are effected, and there is a gentleman's agreement with the city i that when all these regulations arc complied with Waterbury will accept the street. Watcrbury's chief problem at the moment is an arterial highway through the East End of the city, Mr. Sm'ith stated, that will loosen up the congested traffic situation in tha< area. The -engineer declared that It is •hoped with the aid of ,thc stntc planning commission to by-pass pajT of Watcrbury's center, rind run- an arterial road through some of the -slum district, clear away part of this undesirable housing and make it easier for persons in j the outside district of Waterbury. | »ml adjoining, towns to get into the r,il,y more expeditlously. Judge McDonough indicated that by-passing sometimes has y. very sprioiis effect, pointing out that Milford had this done and now with grca.l. signs, beg* motorists to drive, through , her central streets, while the Merrill Parkway has driven down property valua alorvg the old 'No. 1 highway .-it- much as "10 per cent. In reg-ard to development" in Naugatuck. Warden Brophy revealed that although official zoning ordinance* do not 1 exist lierc. when the 200-housc development was started adjoining- Park avenue, the -builders were forced to submit all plans '-and specifications for the approval of borough authorities and all wnrk there on sewers and streets is being dome tin- dor the supervision of Borough Engineer Curtis, and Street Superintendent H-arold Murtto'i. If this work . Is not done according to standard local regulations, the. development will not be accepted, the warden indicated. This, the official -indicated', is a protection foi those who. put their life-savi.rrju in many cases into houses that arc bought on a promoter's baseless promises that many things will be done' by the -town, when actually a municipality has r.'O ?'iirht to spend -taxpayers' money in making improvements on private property'. The situation on Union City Heights and John street were cited as examples of where many purchased homes where there were no grade lines, completed streets or other improvements making for a ooor Mituat'on that has caused trouble for all concerned for the past many years. 9 — o Weather Report | O— ' O New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut—Fair and cooler tonight. \ Tomorrow fair and continued cool.
