SupteinbcT a* wartime nutrition month, Governor .h'ayino'iul 10. Jialthvin said: ' "Wo have emphasized ihc importance of balanced diet in restaurants and hotels and on the'tables in our homes. But the improvement of food habits Tor all the people is an undertaking that requires; time. Much remains 16 be accomplished. "Nutrition month will g-ive vis the opportunity to renew our efforts to keep Connecticut well nourished, strong and healthy while the war lasts and in the difficult days that will still lie ahead when the war is won." The program of nutrition education i.s heiui,' panned by the nutrition committee of the Connecticut War Council. Mrs. Tlielma Currier of Tolland is chairman of the group. The importance of balanced diet cannot be too strongly emphasized. The more people >ttidy this subject with profit to themselves the yroater will be the health benefits they will derive froin such study. It is to be hoped every ei- fort .will be-made-to see to it that the .program now being planned shall be tfiveri such'wide publicity that alTthe people of our state will have an opportu- nity''^ learn what constitutes an adequate diet, and that they will come to fully reali/e-the necessity of*good nutrition: •• GREAT PUBLIC SERVANT - Few public men have been so useful as ox-Senator George W, Xorris of Nebraska -whoso death at the age of S3 occurred last'Saturday. AVhile still in the House of .Representatives in 1010, he helped to break the power of the tyrannical speaker. "Uncle •Joe" Cannon. During his 30 years in the Senate, he put through the law authorizing the Tennessee Valley Authority. Norris Dam, one of its most important links, 'rightly bears his name. Almost single-handed he added an amendment to the federal .constitution. The '20th or "lame duck" amendment changed presidential inauguration from the traditional March 4 to January 20, and required Congress to take office on January 3, loss than two months after its election. Formerly a repudiated Congress could legislate from election day to March 4:' its successor would not meet till the following December. A greater neglect of the popular will is hard to imagine. Norris achieved in 393G the surprising It-fit of reelection as an independent candidate, beating both the Republican and Democratic nominees. His defeat in 1942, when lie attempted this again, was deplored even by many who did not share his views. All in all, he mjght be called Nebraska's greatest gift to the nation. PROGRESS FROM WAR War is something bigger and broader than a clash of fighting armies. Along •wath the international struggles and the purely destructive .features there are im- exepected waves of progress. This is especially true of mechanical and scien- ,'tific things. Robert M, Gates, president of the American Society of Mechanical 'Engineers, makes this interesting statement: , ' . "We are right now in a period of in• tense ijiventive effort and accelerated scientific and engineering developments. The urgency of war has speeded up the clock. In',some lines, we are told, the probable developments of '20 or 30 years have been telescoped into three. There : will not only bo a tremendous accumulation of needs tjpr engineers to meet, but also an extraordinary accumulation of new engineering 1 knowledge." . Kverybody shares in the benefit of : such knowledge. - _ DO YOU REMEMBER? From The Files Of The News 20 Years Ago Pond Hill School association held a reunion, elect- Ins the following officers: Charles Hitchcock, Alice H. James, Jacob Keeling and E. A. Dulby. o—O—o Raymond Brennnn, who was serving- aboard the cruiser U. S, S. Cincinnati, visited relatives In the borough while on shore leave. o—O—o 30 Years Ago A huge jLimplsin. weighing SO pounds and 0 foot In circumference, was grown by Walter Noble of Straitsvillc. It was uii display at the store of J. S. Mahcr on South Main street, o—O—o Charlotte Kennedy, and Mrs. John P. Gubbins attended the Daughters of Isabella convention in Now Haven. Around the Clock Harry Parks, cf Millville, had three ducks lying on his front lawn. And he said they could not be stolen or moved. He had a half dozen watch dogs,, and a small arsenal in his house to protect the little white dummies. So the other night while he was at an outing, somebody suddenly started to auction off three white ducks. Harry eager to add to his brood, bid a couple of times, until he suddenly realized that. they were his ducks. Harry is now reported keeping- those ducks inside the house. .'.... Dot Linskey is looking forward to a big year, at Naugy high this year. "Gubby" Cowan, manager of the Curtiss street Flats softball team had not decided up to press time today whom lie will use on the mound :.i|rainst the Polish-American club in the .final game of the Iwo out; o!' throe series tonight:. In an interview (his morning, exclusive to Tile Column, Mgr. Cowan said: M don't know whether to pitch "Greg"' Phalon or "Howie 1 ' Myers.tonight. Both lads are in great shape and arc ready to ggo. We don't expect too much trouble from, our opponents, and if we run up a fairly good lend, T may yank my starting pitcher and put in "Zeko" .M'.una- han and save my starter for the F. D. next week. And if we lead by a real large margin, say forty runs, I'll shove Charley Romanoff, colored shirt and all, onto the hill. But you can be sure that we'll have to be 'war ahead before I make that move." diet Furs, who defeated the Flats .last week, will attempt to duplicate the feat tonight, for-the sake of the P. A.'s.

"How do you.mean," Ike asked, •you're glad?" "Well," answered the King between piggies, "to tell Uic truth I've been a litLle worried about the same thing myself!" AN ANTI-NEW DEALER was asked if he intended voting lor Dewey. "Oh." he oh'd, "I don't hate Roosevelt THAT much!" THE OTHER NIGHT Major William Corum wus arguing with friends about the election odds.

The note read.: "We wish sir, you would settle something for us. We are seated across the way. My friend says you -impress him as being a lawyer in civilian ]ife. I- say you have the manner and poise of a dignified doctor. The Major enjoyed ihc flattery for a moment but after noting their handsome features and youth, sent back this message: "I was neither a doctor nor a lawyer as a civilian. As a matter of fact, I was a taxidermist and I fully intend to preserve this pigeon for myself.
