S o'clock in Iho borough court room a meeting ol' local industrial, hiisinc'ss and civic groups will i>u hold fur the purpose of inalcing- plans • for N'liugatuck's olisc-rvjincc of Victory Day, which will bt- cok'l'nitod when GLT- iriiiny is delVnted. The confcruncL", wlu'ch Jias )>t_-eii called by Xaugatuck post, Xo. 17, American Legion, should be wt-ll altundt-d as the mat tor to'bo discussed is one of keen • Joc-.'il interest. Commander George B, Lewis has indicated that it'is not expected to arrange for a formal observance of the joyful evoiit"--now being anticipated, but rather to Ji'av.e the - cclt'brati<m conducted in such a way that no damage will be clone to tither public or v by any whose emotions may'lie deeply stirred and wbo may feel an urge to ''cut-up'' in an unlawful or reprehensible manner. ' Mr. Lewis has eniphasi/od the fact that the war will not be brought In an ond < Germany's defeat. Kveryone knows our armed forces have- yet to vdn the battle against Japan and that the time for the .really big celebration will not. come until the .laps have been forced to surrender.. It lias been suggested thai, the Victory Day celebration shall take the I'urm of parades, prayers of thanksgiving, musical ^entertainment and dancing. Such a program, it is believed, would be most. appropriate and satisfactory. If. is well that (he Legion-sponsored meeting is to be held, for. with a suitable program planned, the public will know the kind of celebration to expect on what will be one of the greatest days in Jiis- turv.

This is the second boy for the happy couple, son Norman having arrived several years ago About a week ago, we thought we had seen everything, when a local female resident wore a huge black hat that blocked out the horizon for miles and miles and miles. But then yesterday, we "saw her purse. The Column is led to believe that the purse was especially made for the hat, in order to allow the removal of said, or rather sad, chapeau, in case of a movie or something along that order. We wonder now—where can the purse be stowed away? Especially on a crowded bus, for instance? Ah—woman! ! ! Here's a couple of addresses: Bernard .Kiernan, S '2-c. L'ee.
