AUGUST 2«. 1W-I BUILDI1\0 BOOM LIKELY A sui'voy cl lu'iisin^ cfiiiditions in Con- nocticut sliuws that sumo 300,000 thvo'll- iny units shotikl IJL- i'uj.i!:»ml l>y nc\v and bettor homos after the war. The question is ho\v many of the; uwn- ors arc yoiiiic to dt> the- replacing. M'auy homo owners iimlmiljtoilly would like very inucli to remodel or replace their present dwelling but' !l l-'H'o'e number nf tlioin will probably feel they cannot afford to do so ill existing price levels. .Perhaps they may lie better able to make the desired changes when building materials nre easier to obtain and if construction costs are reduced. But many others, no doubt, will be of the opinion that the old home, poor as it may be, will continue to satisfy them so long as they live. One thing seems certain, however, and that is America is .n'oing to have the biggest building boom in its history after the war is over. A large percentage _ of those who have been making big money during the world conflict are already planning to build or remodel homes when peace comes. They can be depended upon to play an important part in that boom, even though numerous buildings now considered as unsuitable are left'to stand as long us wear and tear of lime and the elements permit them to remain. Here in Xaugnluck there has been much building of homes in late years, It continued ri^'lil up to the time that priorities caused a postponement of all such construction except that on which t'hei-r .use was permitted. .It will be resumed as soon as possible after the war. WILL BE MUCH-NEEDED IMPROVEMENT AVI i on the Naugatuck post office was erected in 1917 it was large enough to meet all its requirements. Since that time, however, the population of our borough lias grown to such an extent that enlargement of the building is absolutely necessary in order to properly handle the increased business which is transacted there daily, It is gratifying to learn that plans have been approved fur a two-story addition to the local post office and that the structure will be enlarged _after the war. The neu- addition, when completed; will fill a long felt want and will be iippwci- ated by 'Postmaster Frank T. Green, his assistants and I ho publjc in general. SQUIRREL MENACE A sober chronicler of the news is puzzle d a little by such a story as came from'.Annapolis the other day, under the auspices of the dignified Associated Press. .The squirrels, it appears, have turned belligerent and declared war on the human race—or at, least on the poo- pPe of that region. The County Health Department vouches for the statement that a girl walking along a road, thinking no harm and bothering nobody, was attacked by a squirrel which, bit her on the ankle and then climbed her dress to bite her on the wrist. And then when she fought it off, and ran to escape the rapacious beast, it chased her for some distance. It does sound a bit squirrel Iy, but you never can tell in these weird and perilous times. By some subtle spread of evil, even once harmless animals may be turning against man and opposing his rule of the earth. They could make a lot of now trouble if they banded together. It has been hot, but it is hotter under the French and Italian sun, and in the Pacific. BUY another "War Bond. TRUCKS AND BUSES Many people are badly worried .by the automotive situation. Truck equipment .has been maintained for military purposes, but there is a serious famine in non-military vehicles and equipment. . Some alarmists fear a breakdown of truck and bus transport. Replacements are hard to get, and thousands of trucks that could still be operated are stripped of important parts. Here is another warning for the utmost care and economy. If DO YOU REMEMBER?

Then unexpectedly she received 32 letters from strangers in remote nnd unrelated parts of the country.

Capital relatives of the Duchess of Windsor say that the British government has repented of its decision to keep the former King of England and his American wife in exile in Nassau and has said the two most famous lovers since Anthony and Cleopatra may live indefinitely in Newport where they are now visiting.

My friend had the impression 'from the letters that the short wave listcncrs-in made it a practice to write good news to the- families of .soldiers whenever the chance came. There's no doubt about it—Gen. Douglas MiicArthur has kept his good looks. The newspaper • pic-, tures of the president and the gen- oral prove it. Perhaps this is why Washington conversation about the general and his first wife, now Mrs. Alt Heibcrger, formerly Louise Cromwell Brooks MacAr- thiir Atwill huo revived. General MacArthur was the second husband of the beguilding Mrs. Heiberger. Not too long ago she was offered a great sum of money for her MacArthur rcminis- ccnc*I;s.

LILI OX THE BOWERY One of the most picturesque nighteries in New York is Sammy's in the old time Bowery district. The club has two price lists, one for the Bowery natives and another for the carriage trade I which finds the spot ideal for slumming. Sammy's floor show is composed of old time acts. Latest number to be featured at the Bowery nightery is "Lili Marlene." It was-added when Dora Pelleticr, star singer, heard Perry Como's disc of the tune and insisted that Perry send her a copy of the song. Dora's version of "LJli" may lack Perry's smoothness, but none of its-vigor. ANOTHER DUKE Word that there is another Duke Ellington has reached Broadway. Pfc. Mercer Ellington.
