If the orchestra will play a little soft music, we shall now sing a lament entitled. "Why hasn't Naugatuck a sports arena?" The local hysteria over tickets to the Naiig-atuck-Leavenworth game proves again—if additional proof wore required—that the need for such a structure in the borough is jicutc. Naugatuck is a sports minded town. A person who should know, estimated that more than -1,000 hor- oughites wanted tickets for last night's frame. Certainly, the demand was out of the ordinary, but between 1500 and 2.000 local fans would buy tickets for many high school games. Also there aro enough good basketball players in the borough to make a fast semipro team which micht rommand almost equal support. Etit here we are making out a case when we don't have to, the majority of boroughites rccojrnizo the need, but have never sucr.uss-' fully combined to do anything about, it. Efforts h-ave been made which cvapnnued in Ihe fuce of rliHicultloi. . Therefore, we think that an iden Inn;,- entertained by a local younir man who has risen to nationo.! prominence in at.hU'tics should bi; given a hearing, His idci is to buy H surplus aircrat'I. haopnr and sot it up in the borough for use ns a sports arena. However, the onlv available property is owned by thu borough. The young man says '.hat, on,» way or mother he would likn to see N-iugatuok get un arcr.ri. and if ioc:il authorities feel reluctant to nut un the land for sale, then he siiKKcj'ts that t.hc borough buy d surplus hangar ,'inci set up a municipal arena. So, here's the thing in a nut shell. In the absence of any other possibility of filling this need—and wo can discount the proposed armory - - this idnn of the hangar deserves thorough public consideration. It might be <in answer to the problem. GET A Vl'lK 1 WII,l,VX-llVI':KI,,\M> Dl-nlci 1 LIBERTY MOTORS, Inc, '«•!
