NAUGATUCK JJiAILY NEWS TUESDAY, ATKHJST22,19« Sen. Jackson Says Roosevelt Should Be Re-elected Dover, .Delaware. Aug. 22—(UP>. — Democratic Senate r Sanuu-l Jackson of Indiana says a change in the present nutloiuil Democratic administration might, to use his words, "well prove the tragedy of this generation." Jackson told tlie Delaware Democratic mate convention today that the thought of a wartime change in the nation's leadership is frightening. The Indiana senator was permanent .chuirmiin of th« recent Democratic national convention. Jackson told the Deluwnre convention that t h o President as Jackson put It, "knows the men with whom we shall have to deal u n d the forces whlcn will be brought Into piny" in the post-war peace. And he further suld, and we quote: "There Is not a mustard seed of hope" for a stable econ- amy In what Jackson termed promises niude lust month by party of Harding, Coolidge Hoover." "the tho and Local Soldier Is Author Of A Song (Continued from Page 1) Clement." From word sent 'to me by my Detroit publisher, not so long ago, KM. I. of New York was handling the song, having sent copies to radio stations throughout the States. Since f am in no position to help promote the song, most of my friends won't know about It. A request to the nearest radio station, asking fur "Send u Lvttcr to the Boys" would get i hem to hoar it. So, nose you have learned the name of. my song. if a fellow has ambition enough, he can always find time to do things In what spare time h.j can llnd. I usually try to make up a new song, others read and follow their common tastes, which usually Is a good game of craps! I lioiu-stly kr'op away from the game find save the different: that way I will be able to get another song published in the future, which goes to show you, I am gambling with the music taste of my public 'incl Unit's a good pastime, an t line!. Sonit) news that might interest you is that I was once llrst president of the llrst "gas model club" In our town. Your paper had an article iihiiut it at that time. I don't know what became of the odginul g:w-iip. A second chili, rwully & by-product of the tlrst. was organiy.eil in Union City and was known as the "3 Point Air Club." \V«. held several successful gas mudnl meets and our club- room was in the back room ot' a. burber shop on Spring street in Union City. We attended several "gus model meets" in that time, one being held in Chicago, the other being held'in Detroit. In the meantime. FriW Bauhus and 1 learned to fly cubs at the Bethany aii-port, so that ended the phase. Out of the group that flew at Bethany, practically all arc connected with the Air Force. My instructors (flying) were a Frank Kendall, IL Harold "Hart and a "Ev" Keeler. But times have changed since the war . Kendall Is now addressed as Major Kendall; 1st Pilot Harold Hart is connected with the overseas airlines, and Keeler Is just that. .In my travels with the ATC, I have met 1st Pilot Harold Hart who flies a four- engine job. 1 was stationed at Romulus, Mich., where Capt. Keeler was stationed, and one cold day in Newfoundland I met Harold Han and missed saying hello to Major Kendall who was flying the •piano ahead of us. So, since tho days of Bethany, it sure has been a small world. Frit/. Baukus missed tho Air Corps when they changed the deal. And, there were others from tho Naugatuck valley which you probably know about, such as Capt, Dillon who was part of the Beth- uny airport gang. As for myself. I'm strictly noncommissioned material and I liko it bettor that way. As for the flying part of it, I have served wkh the ferrying part of the ATC as an "aerial engineer" and have seen South America, Africa, Europe and Asia many times In the course of our ferrying fligh*s. I have had plenty tastes of "holding the controls" of many new bombers, so that has rewarded my "Piper Cub" days. . And to this day I am far from being a hero, but everybody can't be one. Nov.' I am stationed in India with iho ATC. It means flying, and plenty of maintenance work :is an aerial engineer to. be. That is all I can say for that. I guess our boys are doing a lot mure than that, and arc doing the actual lighting, but then everybody can't be doing the fighting— sonic-one has to do the supplying. t don't mind if you tell my public about the song, but don't breatho a word about the rest, because I'm not big time enough for I hat and it all goes into the sum of tho card you sent with the m.imo. of, "let's hear from you." With this. I close, wishing your paper the best of luck. Sincerely yours. T-Sgt. Clement J. Celcxunas. Navy Identifies Three Men Killed In Plane Crash Suundcrstown, R.
