('lit- of the principal Jiiins of the 1947 drive will lie to refill the empty treasuries of local chapters. The tragic- epidemic of 194n' which mushroomed its cripplinj;' course over a score of states and extended its tenUicles into all others, lowered funds of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis lo a dangerous mark. The national quota is $24,1)00,000, half of which will remain in the counties where ^ivi'ii. thus providing local chap. ters $1J.()00,()00, if the goal is reached. Locally, Mr, (Jrccn and his committee will seek the sum of ^'L'.'jOO, Stores, factories and theaters soon will display containers for contributions, and information will otherwise he puMici/ed relative to the proper method of making donations. N'o one knows where polio will strike next. We have had experiences here that brought home In us the seriousness of the disj-iise; and we have seen the value of the Foundation as an agency ready to lead, i.l i reel and unify the fight against the disease. N'o one doubts that the $'_',500 quota will be attained. President Truman, in pledging his fullest cooperation, fiunounced that lie would broadcast to the nation on the night of January MO, the u'.'nh birthday anniversary of Franklin 1). Roosevelt, founder of the National 'Foundation. There was a man who personally knew I he curse of polio. In a report on the .1!>4'! epidemic, Basil I >'( 'onnor, president of the Foundation, wrote: ''We art- proud to report that when polio struck, the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis was again ready to lead, direct and unify the* fight against this disease. It was able \<> supply not only leadership, professional personnel and equipment, but funds! as well —thanks to (lie generous support of the .American people through the annual 'March of .Dimes." That's a compliment and a challenge. The future of the Foundation will be -successful only if American generosity continues to support its efforts. Xaugatuck will. Frontier In Reverse Yes, there were rough times in the old frontier days, when bold men bore their lives in their hands and fired ;i¥ the lift of a pistol, P.'nt wi;re they really any Worse than in those current days of so- called civili'/ation * '•Hijacking is now big business" appears in a current report from New York. Criminal gangs seern to be as well armed and a.-< quick on the trigger as in the days of Mark Twain's "Kougldng 'It.'' There are organi/ed gangs ready for any assault, reckless and cruel in their operations. Their enterprises lately seem to he on a rising scale, growing in skill and boldness. Some gangs are said to lie composed of scores or even hundreds of criminals. The most shameful part of it is that these .n-auu's maintain their own. lawyers to keep them out of jail. Howls For California Californians are unpredictable. San .Diego has gone to a lot of trouble to get itself a "howler" monkey for its '/.oo. The animal is the kind folk in its native Central America call the "scourge of the jungle" because of its fiendish midnight yells. But. the San Diego citixens are boasting about the newts addition to their 7.00. You never can tell what's going to appeal to people. One of the. glories of America is that its citizens will try .anything once. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Lieut. Commander John F.

The girls know whereof they speak, having found out by personal experiment last Sunday afternoon. . , . Sabina Zaleski, captain of the high school cheer leaders, was saved a painful financial loss by an honest spectator at the Naugy-Ansonia game, Sabina dropped her purse, containing a substantial sum, and the fellow who found it sought her out arid returned it. Jack Cuddy and Sol Bazzano are waiting until the ice is just right at Bamn- mers before putting on their fancy skating exhibition. . According to reports Jack and Sol have received a substantial offer from the Ico Follies—to stay at Baummcrs. . . . Walter Ploski, director of public relations for the Purple Knights basketball team, docs an outstanding job of publicizing the activities of his charges. The high school camera club which is under the direction of faculty advisor Leon Sarin is contemplating a few field trips as soon as some of the new members become a bit more familiar with picture- taking equipment. During the weekend met a dental surgeon, who arrived two weeks ago from Greece. It is the first visit to) this country by the doctor or his wife, who also is a dentist. He is very apt to make exciting history, for lie has proven a method of extracting a diseased tooth, cleaning it. then replacing it in its original position where it resumes normal life. The doctor has been invited to demonstrate this ama/.iug feat at the next dental convention in New' York. Maybe we aren't appreciative, but can't understand how "Old Buttermilk Skies" has stayed at the top of the Hit Parade for so long. It certainly can't be compared to the composer's "Stardust." Cigarettes are down to two packs for .'to-cents in most place throughout the state. Wonder how much longer many of the borough's stores arc go*ing to retain the straight 20-cents a deck price"' While traveling Sunday imagine our surprise upon finding ourselves in the middle of a snowstorm when we looked out the train window in Madison only 40 minutes after we'd left another town where the ground was perfectly bare and no apparent signs of a storm. Busing into the borough was no joy, but the driver is to be commended for his excellent job in avoiding collisions with the many vehicles stuck and sliding on the bad hills. There have been a few comments heard around concerning the introduction of legislation to the General Assembly, which convenes Wednesday, as regards the local police department. It has been indicated a revision of the complete charter wouldn't be a bad idea.

Considered a Rreat engineering fMt, the line will carry a power load of 400,000 volts, which is expected to reduce current losses by neirly 50 per cent compared to the 220,000-volt lines ordinarily used In France. At present, the world's highest tension line ii between Boulder Dam and Los Angeles, a 287,000-volt circuit. . Running from a point near Paris 350 miles soutft to Le Brcuil^n the department of Correze, the line is to be carried by 400 steel pylons, each approximately 12 stories high. Tiic two-and-a-half-inch 'cible will weigh M.OOO tons. Unfortunately, completion of the line will not' mean any immediate ncreasc in the amount of electric power available to the French capital, where all homes, offices and most industries arc blacked out two j days a week because of the short- i age..The line is being built no connect Paris to new hydro-electric damn under construction In the Lc Breuil area, but they won't be in operation until the end of 1947.
