There, will he other such clays for tho enslaved people of other Eiirope;;.n countries in the. not far distant future when .Killer's war mongers arc forced to comply with the Allies' demand for "unconditional surrender.'' INCREASE IN SAVINGS DEPOSITS "When the war is ovc-r, many Naugatuck war workers are going to l>o hotter loli' financially than ever hefore. , This is apparent 1'i'oni the monthly ''•business report of the local Chamber of Commerce, which was printed in yesterday's News, and which states that savings deposits here for .Inly amounted u> '$.10,750.(>!K), an increase of more than $l,:il^,l")l ov,r July deposits in W43. While there undoubtedly is much spending done her 1 ; 1 by those who are not saving for" I he proverbial "rainy day," the above figures indicate that a large number of our people are exceedingly thrifty and careful as to their expenditures. And thrift is one of the most commendable habils to form. It pays big dividends-ami helps greatly in gettinj; over the financial rough spots in the highway of life. TIPPING The old argument about tipping has broken, out again, and this time in Xew York, where it most prevails. Many victims of the practice, or imposition, insist, that it should be forbidden by law. Such corrective efforts have been made many times in many places, and apparently they have always failed sooner or later. There seems to be an odd ipiirk in human nature that, makes people take' pride in lipping, »''\vii while they resent the compulsion ur persuasion that impels them to it. Tt. is natural, too, for recipients of good service to feel like rewarding it. * Most tipping, it may be observed, is of direct and personal nature. The tips come mainly to waiters, barbers, taxi drivers and otJiers ' giving immediate hnnum service. For service at a distance or in-a roundabout way, the possible, tipper'.tends lo turn cold. Tt would he interesting to have a psychological study made of this matter, fur the use or understanding of tippers and their beneficiaries. Why in a prolonged heal spell is it so hard to believe that it will ever frcex.e, and-why in the dead of winter dues it_ seem that it will-never get warm? DO YOU REMEMBER?

I Looking at Life \ By KlilCH BKANOIilS You have all seem some of those horrible example.* of cu.bist, ii.b- straclionist, impressionist and other ,Lreonicti'ii:al. cii't. You luivu sgon apples that look lilie women and women that look like appes, Y'ou luivc wondered whether the su-called a'rtiits who pur]jctrat(> these crimes had nighl-'i.-s or wore simply lunatPcs whom the CLiichers -had not yet. caught. You are nil wrong. The Better Vision Institute has ji:st announced' that is all due to defective uyu- siKhl. '. * . . Tlie artists who produce such pictures have eyes that supply i hem with poor dijpth percejition Unit make them deficient in third- uiiiiunsior.ajl seeing. It' you like ithat kind ot piclui'es, says the B. V. i., you have Ule same deficiency. Let tis go the B. V. I. one better. -Aren't there lots of tiling which we see iri altogether %v:'oii^ pro- 1-rOrtiun ? Doesn't otu* \ r isuaJ deficiency apply lo many other things pictures? Some of us, I thinik, need I'ose- colorcd i;'!as.^cs, others should WL'ar tliie kind you tisc to r Iccep out tott much sun. For instance, there is the over- optimist who thinks the war is practicaly over, and no 'more effort is needed. Poor depth-perception. Can't 5eu the truth because of deficient vision. Then, there is the ovur-possimist wh(j thinks Ulie world is goin^ 1 to the dogs. Nothing is right, life isn't, \vortli li\'ing any longer. Poor depth-perception. Can't iiCtu the tomorrow for today, because of deficient vision. Maybe the 13cUcr YJsJon Institute is right. Perversion is not .9. defect of the eye alone, but of the mind. Tho real artist sees the world as it is and pictures it that way. The person who has mrLt'.tei-ed the art of living dousn't indulge in his imaginary grudgcs or his- visionary hopes, but accepts facts and makes the best oi! them'. No mutter w;hethcr you are a painter or just an ordinary bciiii? —you are an artist. Living: itself is an art. You can make everyday of your life a masterpiece to be enjoyed by you :und everyone around you. Let lovo and loyalty, x.est and joy, hope and achievement, play and, be tho colors and you'll never havs. to worry aboul. defective, vision, aver, if yuu wear bifocal glasses!

The B-25 superfortress raids over Japan and Japanese territory have electrified the Allied world both for accomplishments and foi i the promise they hold for futur- raids of large'r caliber. I Bui in all the raids to date— military ! there have been five—a ! anti-climax has existed over fact that Tokyo was nol amon tho targets. To the American public Tokyo has become the symbol of Hie enemy's treachery and each announced raid has produced a hope that it was tho target. Each time feeling o the Arpentinc balances" in the Uniti od Stales may be frozen, for instance, so that funds cannot be withdrawn without special government permission in each case, or a complete ban on transactions wi.Ui Argentina 'might be made, stopping sales of all material and transactions between the two countries. Join', action with Great Britain by the Cnitod States along such lines would mean nn end to Argentine beef supplies for Britain and a need for their replacement by the United States. That's why diplomatic are the hope has sor.e unfulfilled. Practical consk: sideralion? hav<- watching the situation with t interest nt the moment. (Copyright. 1.0-I-I. Kin's Features Syndicate, Jr.c.) Goon Gun Strikes Terror Into Enemy Washington—(UP)—The Armyls mobile -l-2-inch mortnr, popularly known as the "'goon gun," has earned thu affection of 'American soldiers in the war theaters throuphout the' world, the Army Chemical Warfare Service reports. In one year, from June" 1, 1943, to June 1, 19-1-1, mortar, battalions fired -183,000 shells at Axis.troops. Total weight of these shells was nearly 0,000 .tons and their lethal contents totaled 1,.|27 tons, 'of which OS7 tons was white.phosphor- ous. Japanese and German captives attest their dread of the. weapon. I_t. Col. James. H. Eattc of Concord, N. H., led a unit that plastered the city of Mentcbourfr, France, so effectively that-the Germans thought they were under fire from 1-I-inch artillery. Similar reports have come out of the Pacific, Italy and Sicily. ' • The story behind tho flood of stories on reconversion and civil- ion production that have emerged from Washington lately is that W.PB Chairman Donald II. Nelson is winning his battle for the right to guide the nation back to <a .peacetime economy after the war. Nelson has successfully hulled through his four-point reconver- sion program including the famous "spot authorization" order permitting resumption of civilian goods manufactured in areas j when! it wil Inot hinder war production. Then, .at a recent press conference, Nelson presented a rosy picture of civilian production after Germany falls, predicting a return to the 1113!) volume of product-ion. That did r.o harm to Nelson's try for the job of handling the recon- version reitis. and put him in the position of public champion in the reconversion fight. His plan for reconversion was put through despite serious military .opposition and lays tho groundwork for handling the job when the flood begins—after Germany's collapse. '-•Nelson holds, too, that postwar unemployment may not be as serious as some source have been predicting. .

' - ; .. ., . The Democrats are now -1G strong while Republicans control dictated against such bombing oi the "Japanese capital, however much as war department air force leaders \\-ould !ike to oblige t public. Japan's industrial centers, such as Yowata and Mukden in Manchuria and her naval base at Sas- ebo are much more vital targets from a military viewpoint. Then, again. Tokyo-bombing requires flights completely across Japan from B-2D bases in China, expos- j ing planes to fighter' and anti- circles i aircraft opposition for hundreds of miles over well-protected Japanese territory. Washington observers believe that the United Slates must establish bases on Saipan and other occupied islands in the Marianas before taking a good crack at Tokyo—and indications are thai such bases will .be available shortly- You're Telling Me!

HEAVY CRYSTAL GLASSES 12 for $1.00 OTRISIK'S \ CENTEK ST. -*.> HOW could a powerful- bomb which wrecked Ihe walls and. ccil- ...g have lefl Hitler untouched? Even a hand grenade would have torn everybody in Ihe room to pieces. A DICTATOR makes imaginary things seem real and real things imaginary. The "assassinaiion" was framed by Hillcr just as Ihe Reichstag fire was. He was having trouble with his Generals for w.-ek.s before Ihe explosion. When lie realized Hint he would have to kill them, lie decided 10 justify the Igc by staging an .-assassination THE Nazi-Generals' feud is ex- j aclly like gang warfare. A city is cleansed of its vicious gangs when Ihey slart killing each other off. So is a nation. For thai reason jt is fortunate that Hitler has nol' be-on killed—yet. He will shooi hundreds of Junker Generals. Then the other gang will kill the Nazis. Thai is how Hitler, Goerinsr, Himmler and the rest will die. THEN wo must be wise enough to prevent it from preparing a third World War. The German hi^-h command has now become anti-Nazi but il has always been nnti-civilizalion and anti-God. Let us remember the religious precept: "I fear God most, but next lo Him 7 fear most those who do not fear God." OF COURSE the Germans have a scheme. They will trot out a German Republic behind which the militarists will be in control. That was the way they did it the last lime. It was the Weimar Republic, not Hitler, which Arranged the German-Japanese Axis. In 192S the yellow Aryans wanted lo Jearn how to make poison gas ond oiher munitions. I. G. Farbcn revealed its secrets Xo Japan, and Germany seni its chemists to ihe Sumilomo Chemical Company at Wihima. to toach them how. was the .beginning of the Gorman-Japanese Axis — five years before Hitler came to power! DO you think ihe Germari- Ita.lian Axis was formed under Hiiler? Noi ai all. It was formed under the Weimar Republic. Mussolini needed German patents 10 develop his war industry. He arranged for the Italian firm of Montacatini to malic a deal with ihe ]. G. Fnrben monopoly. Thai was -lie beginning of the German-Italian Axis — two years before Hitler. ONLY by disarming Germany economically as well as inililarily ca". we bo; s;ifi>- Military victory is not enough. We must not rust on our laurels. We must take 'over Germany's heavy industries and lie]- tool machine industries; all oil. rubber and other military strategic stocks should be'.confiscnied. We must take no more chances on a Europe which is divided into nations who goose step and naiions who side step! It was also the Weimar Republic which protected Germany's criminals from pur.ishmenl. The German Xaiional Assembly which was elecied in a democratic manner, refused to give up the war criminals to the Allies for trial. When Von Hindenburg was invited to •ippear before the German Stale Tribunal, an adoring audience strewed flowers in his path. Later is further "punishment'' for his .var guik. l.ho Germ.ins elected lim president of Ihe Republic. Il ias always heen a German iradi- ion thai ihe end justifies ihe •neanness. THE only two war criminals vho were sentenced to jail by the erman coui'ts escaped to Holland vilhin two weeks. Tho German plc swelled with pride. No one vas ever punished.
