PAPER IS IMPORTANT Kven tliougli Germany is soon dealt a knockout blow by the Allies, the shortage of paper will continue to exist for an indefinite period. Many thousands of servicemen will have to remain in Knrope long after Hitler surrenders. The need for waste paper that can be made into cardboard boxes in which to park the numerous . articles they .will require will make it necessary for all of us at home to continue saving our scrap paper. ..We still have to defeat Japan, where there is much fighting to be done. The men who will do that job will have to be kept well supplied with the things they need. Muormous quantities of paper will be .required in the manufacture of the cartons in which many of these supplies will be shipped, It can, therefore, be easily seen how important it is that we do our part in saving and bundling our newspapers and other kinds of paper and having the bundles ready for the collectors. Another waste paper drive will take place in Xmigatuck on September -5 and 20. It is because of the urgent need of that commodity that the press of our nation is making frequent appeals to (hi; public to keep on saving paper until such time as the shortage is no longer acute. S'\ don't forget to turn in your paper on each and every collection day. Don't bum this newspaper or throw it away. Save it mid every other paper you read so that it can be used in our nation's war ct'fort. ' 20 Years Ago James T.

Peaceful am! cooperative use ol' the facilities between the United States and Canada are to be expected.

Adrian Gibbs. has been spending a week mii fishing, and in moments \vith of rcla.Na.lion ir.g vocation from hc some of his philosophy. that absorb- expounded Alice Weaving of 17 Carroll street was admitted to St. Mary's hospital 2ate Saturday night for an appendectomy, Her condition is "good" authorities said Miss Irene Squires of Meadow street is at Waterbu-ry hospital, listed as a medical patient ; Young Frances Suchenski of 79 Spring street is also at the Bobbins street institute for surgical treatment. "I don't know whether it has ;i good five cent • cigar yet," he remarked the other evening, "but one thing this country needs is for the inhabitants to realize how •iuppy they ure. "1C you have any idea that they do realize it, ycju must know an entirely different kind and set of people than my patients; because that realisation has not pcrme- itccl to them, "Modern people are happy in the sense that they are not miserable, but they do not often enough face the acute and clear realization of - their • happiness.

And, in the socoml place, they lot loo many details harrass them. "The every day sources o£ hap- nincss we take for granted make up a pitiful waste. Here the poet, the man of art, the temperamental one, has the advantage of us. I saw a musiciiir. ot my acquaintance the other day standing stock still in the street at t! advertising display on a hillbo'arc All he could say when I braced hin was— 'Isn't that perfectly beaut fnl?' — over and over again. AIT it was, when you slopped to lool at. it. though i had passed it twic a day with no more thought thai — 'Oh! Just another sign!' \V take Tor granted all the geniu and beauty that the advertisers spread before us daily. ".A. citi/.eii of Princeton told me that when Einslcin came there to live, he used to walk every day WASHINGTON—"And Br'cr Fox he set there. En hu didn't say nothin'. He didn't say nothin'—at- all. Uncle Remus, he tried to keep thing's cz pleasant as possible without causing too much trouble and tclliiV what ho kr.owed. "But Br'cr Fox, he just set there. En ho didn't say nothin'. Xow en then he blinked a little. En,once he looked through his glasses'. But he didn't say nothin' at-iill." I take you in my story, children, i medieval castle. Sir Alexander made a little joke about :.he difference in the' prepared statement between "peaceful nations" and "pace-loving nations."' At this the little boy who represents the public laughed hearily, Not, too heartily, for the meeting was in the elegant tapestry-hung room of he Dumbarton Oaks man- j sion The setting had the air of a to Dumbarton Oaks, where the hoads of the American, British, and Soviet delegations to the in- formul Washington convt_»rsalions on 1 international organization broke down in a dear little early morning story-telling for the press. The press, as you know, children, is the public. And the public has lately got itself into a frenzy over what the informal conversations at Dumbarton Oaks arc about anyhow. What do they promise in You don't laugh raucously in a medieval castle. Not early in the morning, anyway. I£ver so often Uncle Hcmus looked at his watch and indicated that time was short. I don't know why time was so short for Uncle Remus himself said the conversations would last another two weeks But the questions or the little boy kepi getting sharper and sharper.

And when it jjot asked loud cnotiRh. the conference, or the story-tcHlhiK hours of the other morning, was called by Undersecretary of State Edward Stetlinius, chairman of the Washing-ton conversations. Stettinius was the Uncle Remus of the- mooting. A bijr. handsome j Uncle Remus, with a flashiiiK smile and a very agreeable manner. He looked as husky as the other two gentlemen ai the conference table put together But he was a little nervous now and then at the quesions asked by the little boy. The little boy, children, was the ladies and ftenclemen of the press. And like the little boy in Joel Chandler HnYris' classic stories, they did have an "cnrniirin 1 mind." Soviet Ambassador Gromyko was the br'er fox of the fable .He was the one who just "set. there and didn't say nothin', nothin' at all."

I have a pamphlet' from -them advocating molasses milk shakes for babies bo- cause Wcw Orleans molasses is such a rich source of iron. However, the spring tonic, though valuable in its day, is not necessary in these times of food transportation and preservation.

"D'id that mean that the Soviet ambassador also agreed to the plans of Mr. Roosevelt and Sir Alexander?" "Wiill—cr," said the representative of the British foreign office, twirling his spectacles now. "If I may venture a slight correction, what I really said was that I 'had r.o objection' lo the plan of Mr. l^oosovclt." Then Sir Alexander and Uncle Remus—sorry, 1 mean Stcttinius— looked anxious-like over ot Br'er Fox (the, Soviet ambassador—I do beg your pardon, children). "But Br'er Fox he didn't say nothin'!
