The projects, as stated in yesterday's New.s, included a sowagu disposal plant, the erection of a new l>ridgu un Bridge street, new town hail and recreation builtliiigs, roplacoment of tho Kuhher avenue and Central avenue schools with modern structures, and alterations in Naiigatuck's high school. These' improvements, whose total cost would he approximately ;j>9.'>U,OOU, are considered imperative post-war needs,' •which could be financed with the assistance of the federal govennent, A sewage disposal plant, must bo built immediately after the war. The condition of the Bridge street bridge is sncli that a replacement of the structure can- riot,'it is claimed be much lon/rer delayed. That Natigatuck should have a new town hall -is the opinion of everyone'who is familiar with the present condition of that building which through many years lias well served the purposes fur which it was'erectcd but which is no longer .suitable for present-day needs. Our high school, the genorous gift" of the late lamented John T-l. AVIiitlomnrc, certainly needs alterations in order that- it shall best serve the purposes for M'iiich it TiVas^C'stablished. As to the necessity of replacing'.' the Kubber avenue and Central, avenue schools, there-' can be no question. That is a "must"-project. A recreation building I'or this community lias long been the hope and fond dream -of the many citizens who recognize "what a valuable assot such a building would be to this borough. Undoubtedly, there are other needs which might be included in a post-war planning program if it were possible to finance them, but. those tinder consideration by the Planning Commission spoak 'well for the interest manifested by its members'in post-war improvements.

In Germany, wo are told, they havu twice during the conflict been badly pinched by the failure of the potato crop. This has raised. . our respect for the . potato, because it suggests that it-is adequate as a single I'ood fulfilling all 'nutritional requirements', In our own i.-ind of 'Plenty we have for tu-o years had to endure a considerable curtailment, of our meat supply, It gave those who were convinced Ihnt meat is "bad I'or you" a practical chance to try out thuir theories, but for most of us the lack of juicy steaks and roast beer in abundance has made us long for that most glorious, adequate and complete of all articles of diet. . • What c:in be substituted for meat if some dire calamity were lo happen? soy noun us Food What foods. tha.t grow abundantly and easily in our climate are adequate for full nutritional needs, supposing this glorious land of buunty should wa'.k into a period oC mcterological and agricultural calamities? Well, it's not likely to happen, hut our war experiences givo considerable courage In the knowledge that we can gel. along on a good deal less than wo were ac- f.-jslomcd to havo. One answer of contemporary, industry is thc soy bean. It fullllls the rcQuiremcnts ol.' aclap lability and easy cultivation. A small plot ol' ground located - nearly .anywhern in North America will grow soy beans in adofjuatc amounts for a family's nutrition. I have even heard of tenement and flat dwellers who have grown enough soy beans in pots ontheir window sills to supplement their meat. rations, but I dp not guarantee this information. • . . Nutritionally the soy bean has %-nry high adequacy It is high in- proteins. The claim has been made that it is a complete protein. That, claim is regarded with some: sleep-' Ucism by Colonel Iskcr,. ot 'the Subsistence Research . Division,.

All this led to speculation xhat Stalin didn't really 'disapprove of the German Junker military caste and that .Russia was playing her own game with the Germans in eastern 3£uropc. Now President. Roosevelt gives .-issurar.ce that the unconditional surrender terms which he and Prime Minister Churchill" agreed upon at Casablanca have the support of Soviet Russia, too .' DEMOCRATIC POLITICOS are basing their election calculations on belief that Germany will fold up well" in advance of the November elections As a result., more emphasis is expected to be placed on the Pacific theater 'in speeches between now and thc end of the po- liticnl campaign. The idea of the Democrats is to build tip Mr. Roosevelt as commander-in-chief in thc Pacific \vai* tts well as in thc war in Europe, so that if thc< battle with Germany terminates there still will be support for their contention that F.DH must, be retained in o/licc for military, reasons. . • Thc president's trip to Pearl Harbor already is seen as emphasizing increased importance of the Japanese war and will do no harm to the 1 Democratic.' c a m p a i g n s'trateg-y. - ... •Democratic party leaders recog- .nize.: that. too early .collapse of ,.G.ermany, from' a political point of 'view, .'will' affect thoi Roosevelt-Truman 'ticlce't' adversely and, nothing caik.-bc^-'done about'it but to build up'tlic'.'Japanesc angle.

MORE 'HIGH RANKING Army and Navy oliicials have been lost :n \VorJtJ W.-ir II than jn any war in this nation's "'history. Twelve admirals and 12 generals have lost their lives since Pearl Harbor from illness, combat, plane crashes o; other causes In World War I no admirals were killed in action or died from other caus.cs Only one general wa a 'fatality. He was Brig. Gen. Kd- ward Siegcrfoos, who died of wounds suffered in action in France. * The first American admiral of flag rank to be killed in action was Rear Admiral Isaac C. Kidd, 57, who lost 'his life aboard thc U. S. S. Arizona during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
