New*pap«r Publihar* AJ«'B THURSDAY, JANUARY !>, 1M1 Bristol Terrace 'Residents ol' a section of Bristol Terrace, Waterhury, have petitioned the horoun'h fathers for approval oi' a plan whereby their laud and homes would be annexed to Xauyaluck. Tlie question is one that requires action by the General Assembly, and that body naturally would bt- influenced by the attitude of of fit-in I spokesmen for Waterbury and N'uuga- tucU. Piirt of 'Bristol Terrace is 111 ready #ov- erned by N'angatiick, and the services provided by the borouyh seem more attractive to residents on the Watorbnry side than those offered by their present governing municipality. Should the plan be adopted, t\vo streets, now graced by ten houses with as iiiiiny t'aniilics, would be taken from thu Wnterbury map and transplanted, on paper, to N'aiiii'atnck, They would pay tuxes here, bo eli&ihle to send their children to Niuiji-atuck schools, enjoy Naugatuck police and fire protection, and other services such as street plowing and sanding, most of which they claim Waterbury refuses to grant them. Bristol Terrace 1 is a pleasant little sec- lion. Its people are industrious, cornmti- nity-miii'ied people who, through no fault of tluiir own, find themselves without privileges and services that add to (•(immunity attractiveness. Initiative is not the least of the qualities possessed by residents of the section, for their current endeavor smacks of ability to strike out for what seems a more desirable circumstance. Together with other considerations represented in their petition. Natigii- tuck's lower tax rate undoubtedly is very inviting to the Waterburians. N'ati- gatuck's rate is 21 1-4 mills in the outside district, in which category the Terrace would be. while Waterbnry's is 2D.75 mills. And the recent revaluation in "\Viiterbnry stands forth as another reason why these people consider the time opportune to secede—but with legal approval, if any. On the surface, it appears that the problem of the fringe residents is one that deserves sympathetic consideration. To the naked eye there seems Httle reason why, in view of the natural affinity of the area, to our borough, the proposal should not lie approved locally—provided U'aterburv officials are willing. Same Sad Story The situation still prevails; the Board of Warden and Burgesses again has met and adjourned without filling vacancies in the police and fire departments, Tt is a disgraceful condition when petty polities continue to disrupt the morale and. service potentialities of public agencies to which our people look for protection. Whatever excuses are offered for the failure to act they all lose sight of the fact that by and large tbe public cares not a whit for the politics of the candidates for the vacancies; their only concern is that men of able body and mind be assigned. Continued delay is all the more reprehensible in the light of tbe availability of aide candidates for the positions—some of them war veterans. AV'e wonder how and where the current funibliu.u's will be brought to an end. Strike Overtones Striken, likt- moaslos. »rf, not only bml in themsolvofi, luit in tlieir at'tor-ct't'cuts.

Tt lius 1)oun dis- roviTfil tluit after a major strike, production is -not vcsitiinod immediatuly at Mil.- pro-striko riito. It takes throe or four tiiiH-s the duration of the strike to -ro- gain normal produetion volume. Not only capital, hut labor, has he- roiiH! Mware of thi.s fact. This is one of tlit 1 rcnsonss why.unions are not going to rush into strikes' quite so readily as in Do You Remember? One Year Ago Francis A. Clark was elected chairman of the NaugatucK District,' Mattatuck Council, Boy Scouts of America. Earl White and Albert Mai, Sr., were elected trustees of the Mlllvlllc Library association for a term of three years. 20 Years Ago Attorney Thomas D. Kcnncy returned to New York after vlaiting n:* inoihor, Mrs, John Kcnney of Cherry street. Miwa Adeline Anderson, daughter of Mr. arid Mrs. E. A. Anderson of Fairview avenue had returned to her studies at the Connecticut College ,tor Women. 30 Years Ago The Clover Leaf quartette, composed of Al Happy, William Gubbir.s, George Benz, and Mi- chncl Cullen entertained at St. Francis' smoker, John Crcan of New ErUain visited relatives here. Around The Clock Former Congressman Joseph E. Talbot was in Hartford Tuesday on business ... in New Haven that day was theater owner Kalph S. Pasbo. . . . Hazel Krnlis while visiting in Troy, X. V., during the weekend purchased her little Scottie "Susie'' a new sweater'. , . and in keeping with the home town spirit it is garnet and gray, the hi^h school colors. Patrolman Walter Lyskiewicz announced the opening of the borough court session Tuesday. He did it in good style too. Mrs.' Dorothy Wulfeck, administrator of Service for Veterans, has sent out a rush call, urging all local veterans who wore prisoners of war to call at lior office. . . . Review of all claims is underway,-and Mrs. W. believes many local men will benefit. Something, something weird and unidentified, walked into Gus Klimaszewski's smoke shop in Union City recently. ... Hurried calls were sent, out for game wardens, dog wardens and animal experts. ... At last report, according to Wally Gesseck, best guess was that the "thing" was a species of sea gull. Mr. and Mrs. Francis Plankcy, thc'lat' tor the former Pat Kikluff of Naugatuck, are operating a dry cleaning business in Seymour. . . . Francis recently was discharged from the Army Air Corps—and believe it or not the young people lost no time in finding a home in Seymour. .... Pat sends her host regards to all her pals at Andy's. Naugatuck now has a Marine Corps Recruiting service. Sergeant Earl Rich is in charge and will he at the local Post Office everj* Wednesday from 10 a. m. to 3 p. m, ... Fireman John Weaving is still confined to his S,outh Main street residence by illness. . . . New directional signs for motorists have been erected at the Church and Maple street intersection by Jhe State Highway Department. .... Tom Fitzgerald, high school freshman and a Bristol Terrace resident, had a hot experience on Church street recently when his coat caught fire from a cigarette. Xot one of Naugatuck's 1- physicians was available New Year's Eve to give treatment to residents suffering injuries through accidents. The injured persons had to be taken to Watcrbury hospitals by the Naugatuck police department. Although there is a lull ,in bridals at present we'd like to take this opportunity to let future brides know we have just received new wedding blanks. To facilitate operations here we kindly request brides return the filled out blank as early as possible, and not.later than the day before the wedding. AVe dislike very mueli rcfnsin/j people \vlio desire to IIMVO tlic-ir various items pnbislied in a certain day's paper, but when they call after deadlines have been readied \ve have no alternative. This is particularly true on Saturdays when we arc trying to get your paper to yon early. Why not call early and avoid disappointment. Jack Oonway, director of St. Michael's Playmakers, tells us we're in for some surprises when he announces the cast for "Blithe Spirit", which the group will produce next month. People are in it whom you never dreamed had theatrical ability. JANtTARY 15 TAX QUIZ By FRANK W. KRAEMER': Collector of Interim! Revenue No. 3 of a ' " Q.
