Salvage Of Paper )n September 25,26 (Continued from Page 1) was clerk with Mr. Raytkwich and 11,000,000 men mcnt of the collection to the members of their congregations. Waste .paper is still extremely vital in the war effort, even though reports from Europe result in a great deal of optimism on the home front. With approximately William Schoflcld as tellers. Charles.P. Rodcnbach. Rcpubli can town committee chairman, was chairman of tho first ward cau- ••u« Mr. Schofleld was chairman at the second ward caucus.and Mr -luyntwjch officiated at the .third ward 1 session. . Mr. Painter stated todny that there are 26 votes in the senatorial convention and the winning nom inee must control H at least of these He stated today that he felt that'his chances of winning the nomination were excellent for as far as he has been able to find out, ''he is the only avowed candidate to "date, " It was reported today that severe llghts'havo cropped up in Republican groups in several towns in the l-Hh senatorial district, and this fact, has made the question of support more puzzling than ever before. . . Milford Is reported to have had dissension in its G. O. P. ranks as well as West Haven, the largest towns in the 1-lth senatorial district outside of Nnugatuck. The battle here for control of the caucuses between the Painter and Schildgen forces is also said to have stirred a great deal of feeling in Republican ranks. One political observer after witching the caucus maneuvering .here last night that the younger G. O. P. seemed to be behind- Mr. Painter with the O'.c Guard Republicans in the borough solidly with Mr. Schildg&n. . Another political observer stat eel- that the late entrance of Mr Schildgen into the local campaign would- seem to indicate that .th splits-, in Republican ranks in- the district, definitely paved the way for a .Naugatuck man to win the nomination on Saturday, -a poin upon, which there would be some question if the usual Republican stalwarts in the district were able to control their senatorial delegates, .. It was .also stated that heavy pressure was being applied here yesterday, in an effort to contro various G. O. P. groups in the bor ough In connection with the caucuses. , One surprise was the failure of a large block of votes in the Second Ward to materialize at the caucJs In favor of the Painter nomination,.but one G. O. P. member stated today that a "hands off' attitude was maintained by many Republicans here, with 'many registered members of the party failing to vote for either candidate. There wore only 15 present at the second ward caucuses. Another matter that may have some repercussions later, It was indicated, was the fact that certain members of the G. O, P., tho holders of paid jobs in the political Held' here, were definitely aligned and working in the interests of certain candidates and a real feeling of resentment was aroused in the opposing camp as a result. The caucuses caused the great-' ost sthsin Republican ranks of any event in recent years, and while the victory of Mr Painter was not too unexpected where it was appreciated just how -much work he and his ^followers had been doing in recent weeks, yet in other G, O. P. 'circles'it was quite a shock, it was believed. .That'part of Soviet Russia which is known as Siberia contains about -1,800,000 .square miles, and is one and one-half times • larger than the continental U. S. and women in the armed foites, all .industries have been affected by the manpower shortage. The paper industry is no exception. Paper mills throughout the nation have been working under great handicap, and paper, which is so commonly used, can be salvaged and re-used, .'.lightening the mills' burdens. Cartridges for use at the front nre packed in paper. Shells that stop tanks arc encased in pap'er during shipping, to prevent dirt and other foreign matter from causing misfire when the shell is placed in a gun chamber. Paper is used to wrap field rations. Paper cartons are used in the shipping of blood plasma that has saved many n doughboy's fife, and will continue to do so. . On tho home front, paper cartons have replaced the valuable metals heretofore used. Cleansing- powders come in paper cartons, and pipe tobacco is enclosed in paper. In some areas, milk is delivered In paper quarts. Even ice cream has lost its metal containers in favor of cardboard in many instances. The use of paper is extensive. It ;ilso replaced the metal case that used to oncrdso the works of an alarm clock. \nd if you >"likc to read books, magazines, or newspapers, it is necessary to put the all-read publications back into service. Save all your waste paper for the collection later this mon^h. Newspapers, magazines, cardboard, and any other paper material should be kept nent and tied in convenient bundles for quick pick up by the borough street department on Salvage day.
