For, although 1he \varlins been won. the pence- is still to be attained. Statesmanship, tact and wisdom on tlic part of our lawmakers during the next two years of the • Congress will contribute materially lownrd the goal of peace sought l>y-this (Mimtry, and, we hope, tin- whole world. And inntters of purely national concern nlrio .stand before tlio (\>ngro8s, do- mniiding full fi'»l immo/linto nltciition. iVi-hfips most urgently needed is a composite ontlino of what labor and industry may expect in tl-e next two years. I'nblie 'opinion seems to demand that labor laws be overhauled in the interest of avoiding further crippling strikes such as have been the rule during the past two years. It would bo labor's great Tnisi'ortmie if their gains of Die past'sev- eral yc-ars were drastically curtailed on I he s'lrength of serious mistakes attributed to labor leaders recently. The rising clamor for portwl-to-portal pay is making labor none'-the-'more pop- iibir in quarters that look for an^opppr- tunitA" to upset gains granted by liberals. Despite the signals, labor has filed suits totaling more than two billion dollars in an issue'thnt will have little public support, and certainly will face .-•toi my weather in Congress and in the courts, N'augatnck again is favored in having a native son participating in the action on the Washington scene. We wish Congressman .James T. Pallersnii good luck a* a member of the 80th Congress. Ho ami hi.s Colleagues will spend many a weary day and night weighing and presenting arguments whose importance baidly a living constituent can fail to recognixe in advance. Congressman Patterson's education and his training as an attorney, mid later as a Marine, will be strong assets to him in I lie Irving'days to come. Striped Pants Speaking of American diplomacy, Paul Block, co-publisher of the. Toledo Blade, thinks there are too many striped pants and not enough brains. Tt might he. Me says, "Von can pick out our State Department representatives by their striped pants wherever you go"; also that, "Von can be thoroughly ashamed of our state department representatives all over the world. Obviously th'ey have not been perfectly trained." Striped punts, no doubt, are important, in diplomatic jobs, and apparently it would be impossible to get along without thorn. Tho whole diplomatic, world, wo take it, is strung together and impler rnenfwl by endless outfits of striped pants. But couldn't, there be more variety and beauty in the future output of such pants? Ami there can really be no objection to a iN-rtnin amount of training in the heads which top them, can ' Kenlly, it's a pity how I he good old times wear out and Pallier Time has to provide.-- a now supply. Sure, the New Year is a good lime for sobering up— -for those I'oloisli enough to need it. Next to hnmntt sympathies, the modt precious thing in the world is the time we throw' away. High among New Year's Resolutions should be a stern resolve on the part of Uncle Sam to stop burning things down. Collision and collusion are twin evils. Do You Remember? , One Year Ago Douglas Cocltcroft and.'Trancis .Gullen were op- pointed substitute clerk-cnrriei'H ut the local' post office. ' "' '• ' ' ,'..... o—P—o Postmaster Frank T.

Many residents thank the Naugatuck police department for lending a helping hand and extending courtesies in getting them to their homes and other places during the stormy holiday. Garbage collections in the borough are a serious problem again and probably will bo discussed at the next borough hoard meeting. One resident told (lie town fathers yesterday that, the West Side hills have had no collections for a considerable length of time. This man said lit; had a five-gallon can in the ground, two other receptacles and a pan overflowing, and that dogs in the. area spread the debris 'throughout (.Jit- entire neighborhood.^ Anne Granger, former Naugatuck correspondent for the Waterbury Democrat, is currently catching up on her household duties; From the work schedule she has outlined for herself, it would seem we wouldn't be seeing -<rery much of her for awhile. 1 However, knowing the versatile and active person she is, we wouldn't wager on it.
