I DO YOU REMEMBER? l| From The Files Of The News 20 Years Ago Natigatuck high school seniors planned their first social. Serving on the committee, were R. Howard Hnckett, John TaUginn, Miriam Ferris, Anna Kenncy, Paul Buckmillor, Henry Duly,, and James Monahnn. o—O—o A shower was held in honor of Julia LeKoy of Hillside avenue at tho homo of Mrs. Edward Gerbcr, North Main street. Among those attending wore Kiitherino Mooncy, Marie and Anna McNamara, Nellie pornn, Mrs. Henry Peterson, Mrs, Waller Long, Catherine Kumeraol, Theresa Freeman, and Rita LcRoy. o—O—o i 30 Years Ago Among Coach Ashmoro's high school luminaries getting ready for tho 101-I season wore Art Dunn, captain, and quarterback, Piko Moore, end, Jack Moonoy. tackle, Jack Freeman and Charle Daly, guards, and Jack Loary in the backfieUi. o—O—o Anna Dowling, Anna Olson, Emma Lindquist, Mary Moss, Mary Fitzgerald. Theresa Freeman, and Mary Budah woi'o attending Danbury Normal school. 0 —o—o Bessie Havens of Church sLr'OO^ visited ii York city. Around the Clock YOUTHFUL MATURITY On the morning oi' Soptomlior 5, the Erussols radio t-ont out an unconfirmed report ('I' CurmHiiy's uncoiulHioiial stir- rondor. The report reached one naval unit awaiting transportation to a combat xmio vhilc- most of tno,personnel -vvere at morning' mess. A l'c\v men ^'ho had caught the ivport quickly spread the •word around the mess halls. The first reaction was one of excited, hopeful qiifHtioniny. Men. stopped ont- in.ij (im'l gathered about .the bearers of the news. "Is this scuttlebutt?" "Where did (lie report come from?" "Js it con- i'irmi'd 1 :'" These were the questions that shol. out from all sides. When it was learned that the report did not orig.iual.o-- .from, an American sfiiirco and that it was unconfirmed, the men fell away and went back to eating. Their li'ipos were not gone, livery radio in the outfit was tuned to the Armed Forces Station to pick up further bulletins. There wasn't a man aboard "who, didn't have serious doubts, but ouch one made plans .for a celebration just in case. ..Most of the unit would have "looped to the gills" in traditional American fashion if the report had been confirmed. There wasn't long to wait, howes'er. The radius soon dashed all remaining hopes. The significance of the incident lies in the absence of any wild outbursts before the truth could be learned. The questions asked were indicative of intelligent, mature minds. The unit was a one in average age, but there wasn't a youth who didn't act like a man. There's a lesson for all of us here in Xaufxntnck to learn from that incident It is that, we should not start a Victory "Day celebration prematurely, ns was done in the first world war . .As the Allies'continue to make Germany's eventual defeat appear certain, •we should be on our guard against any false rumors of the Nazis' surrender. When Germany finally "throws up the sponge," it will be officially announced. But until that eagerly awaited news is received from an official source, we must remain calm and not allow ourselves to excited over any false reports.

Sis fundamental thesis is .that mnny, If not most, of thu chronic illnesses of mankind result partly from bodily or physical derangements (soma, ~— i he body) and partly fi'oni the slate of ihc patient's mind and soul (psycho—Sou') and really by an interaction of both of thorn, "'here is nothing startltngly now about this, bui the recent studios iiuvo served to focus it and state clearly tho objectivos of treatment in such cases.

North America is labelled "Psy- aioll_J chosomatic Medicine." 1 SUu- Idi'a of 1'syuliosoiiiiiiicN There is a man who has tho disease and the disease which has tho mar,. That is the basic case of psychomatics. In tho case .of ho acute diseases — infections, traumatisms. neoplasms — the relationship is fairly simple and the entities of body and are fairly separate. But in many other conditions they depend on a long .stretch of background of association and partnership oC brother body and brother mind and brother noul. The human organism presses through levels of growth and dc- j vclopmuni. They can bo roughly classillod and described thus: 1. Tho somatic phase. Tho baby is nc.'.irly all body. As development proceeds the child begins to have ideas about his bodily functions. Household environment conditions this to a considerable extent. If the parents arc fussy, and that moans fussy beyond the requirements of hygiene, 1 about what* foods are good or "bad for .you,". 01- about regularity of tho bowels, or ox.Mggeratc little upsets—such as temperature rises—there is always tho possibility that the psycho svill bo overly conscious., of • flic body,-nnd those• ideas' arc f'rc-, !..qu'eritly carried over into .adult A young 1 war.hem says'ho isn't really bravo at all—wlre'ii anybody tells him to lick the enemy lie just docs, it automati- cailv.

This, as we all know, can bo over-developed, and accounts for the psychology of tho only child. Brothers and sisters teach the child there .' arc I other people in the world, all just | as important as ho is. 3. The suJp-onderisHc stage-— which is OAVJlrcnoss of other humans of- tho same sex, begins about the ago of five and lasts until puberty. 4. The altergcndcristic stage— during which there is adaptation to humans of tho other .gondc'r. It is hardly necessary to expatiate on how much foundation for future ill health—mental and bodily—is laid down iu this stage. 5. The phase of adjustment ot : all tho stages that have .ffone before. In most of us the adjustment is prc.wiyffood—surprisingly po'b'd^as we WbTc'Tiack on the possi- WASHIXGTOIN*—As Allied victory prepares to take Us last Corman hurdle in the march on Berlin, you begin to .hear talk nbout tho people who wHl represent Iho United Stales in Germany :.fnd France.-And for that matter every-' whore the Allies have cleaned out tho Axis scourge. It is to be expected that United States diplomatic appointees to Germany will bo civilian storm contOi'S. (The commotion about the Murphy-Rober team for example.) Not for a. long time have civilian onlookers boon able to got themselves into a swivel about tho goings on of their mind. 'Twasn't patriotic. Nor cricket, in the words of our English kfafolk. Now with success ahead, the lid is off. J3ring over tho choice of delegation '. to Germany. The choice for ambassador' to Paris seems to lie between ..those two old favorites, Anthony Drcxol JSiddlo, extremely experienced ambassador-at-largo to most of the once occupied countries, and Norman Armour, former United States representatives to uneasy Argentina. Armour, who did a brilliant job at Buenos Aires, was earnestly considered for the post of undersecretary of state given to Edward Stel- tinius. Jr., when Sumncr Welles resigned. He is now acting chief for JU-Llin American republics.

I. too, am ti: 1 of hearing- how awful they arc, "Eighteen-year-old Miss Tex may know that ..women didn smoke in public 25 years ago, b I know two old ladies who smoke tang before lhat.

"A n ci my- olhcr grandmtitho helped 'to clear tho fields of th farm and did a lot of other har work—tho kind of work the wo men.of those days did to help tho husbands and their country. Sh always smoked a. pipe while sh was working, and my father lolc MIC that quite a few women usot to carry their pipes in their apioi pockets when he was a boy. "Of course, tho dear ladies did not smoke in public, a -sun-bonne and a.n old gingham dress woren very fetching in public.
