In gen- oral, optimism is somewhat restrained, but it is there. This time last year order books wort- bulging. People wanted new cars, new furnaces, new kitchen sinks, new washing machines. Builders had long lists of clients who were impatient to get that dream house started, n.-plel».> with every conceivable new-era gadget. But factories and retailers began to U'alix.c much of this ordering 1 was in duplicate, triplicate. And [here developed a d'-tinitf cnslomer cooling off. All this made 1!>4<! look like a year of prosperity, but not. of prosperity plus. Out; of the dams that jammed production last year, government control, is out. offsetting this advantage however is the nnceitainty regarding labor. Will the unions, in portal-to-portal pay suits and in straight wage hike demand's price labor out of the employer's reach? Most of the prophets seem to think compromise will avert this stalemate and givo labor a modest boost that industry can absorb. Though certain fields will have their surpluses, such as lex!lies possibly, due lo falxo orders and a buyer's resistance attitude, these kinks are likely to ho • smoothed out, by mid-year. All iu all if everybody goes to work, and stays steadily at the job, it looks as if Unolo Sam might' get his economy righted before ll>47 goes out. American Shrine Add one to.the list o!' American historic shrines. The 21")-ycar-oId house in (Jnincy, Muss,, which was the homo of two pn'sidfnts. .John Adams ami his son John Qnincy Adams, has been turned over to the government by the Adams 'Memorial Society, and will be opcrat-^1 by I he National. Park Service. In addition to its two presidents, it was the home of John Qtiinc.y's son, Charles Francis Adams, whose masterful diplomacy as minister to Knglnnd under Lincoln kept the British from entering the Civil "War on the Southern side. Visitors will find this house an inspiring influence. They will also find interest in the Dorothy Qnim-y home not fr>r awav. Happy War Brides By the middle of next year there will bo fiO,00<y foreign-born girls in this country as brides of American soldiers. Al- reyily there are more than 40,000 here. The communities throughout the land where they have settled have received them with interest, usually with cordiality. They have been the subject of many press articles. Anil of course everyone wants to know how they like America. While statistics on such a personal matter must bo unscientific, one writer estimates that oil but five per cent of thf.sp marriages are succeeding. There are instances like that of the English girl from beautiful Somersetshire who could not face bringing up her child in the grime and ugliness of a "West Virginia roal mining town where her husband's work took them. Housing shortages, forcing a doubling up with his family, have produced mother-in-law troubles. But by and large even those girls from non-Knglish speaking European countries like TTfe in the United States with its liberty of speech and action, its household comforts, its material plenty and its freedom from war devastation, America has a long history of assimilating other nationals. This indeed has made America. The newcomer brides, like the other people from their homelands who have come to these shores, •will make this country a better place and .everybody hopes they will be happy -here. Do You Remember?

Around The Clock Nation tuck's traffic record of 418 days without an automobile fatality compares favorably with the national record of 447 days free of auto fatalities which is-held by New Britain. In recognition 61' the accomplishment (ho American Left-ion is honoring that city with a coi'tit'ioalo which will soon ho piesentod to .Mayor Henry Owiazda liy the Legion's nariomi] commander. There was ice fishing at Lake Zoar during the past week-end but local fol- owers of the ski trails are still waiting for the right conditions. Among those who traveled to West Point to see the Greyhounds play the Plebose were Francis "Spec" Shea, Geneviove Martino, Mr. and Mrs. John Healy, Francis "Red" Smith, Mary Byrne, Bill Burke, Sarah Emory, Fred Bickt'ord, Clarence and George Haigh and Mr. and Mrs. John Haigh. Dick Pistarelli, all-around athlete, is one of those who follow the advice of the song- which says "Keep On Smiling.". We think Dick has the right idea. Enjoy what you can out of life, there'll be sorrow enough regardless. Mention of .Dick reminds us t.hat ninny of the Naugatnck K angers are loyal high scl'ool basketball supporters. Among Uioso seen at recent games are Dick, himself, Charlie Matir/.ewski, George Allen, Hill B'urke, Bill Gliek. and Charlie Con- nollv. The borough has three more years in which to revalue property. A revaluation was due in 1941, but the law is written in a manner which gives towns and cities 19 years in which to complete the matter. But, regardless of what happens, the borough must undergo a revaluation in 1950 . . . it's something that has been recommended for several years in the annual auditor's report. Heard from an old friend the other dny, Aileen Uoberts, foi-mcr Nangatuck resident, w.lio is executive secretary of I ho Connecticut Merit System maintaining offices in Hartford. Aileen, who follows political activities with an eagle eye, said inauguration day was rather gruelling. She went to the capitol to distribute the latest edition of the Merit. Man on all the legislators desks, and was dubbed the 1947 session's No. 3 lobbyist. The grapevine tells us there is a big party being planned for Congressman James T. Patterson to be held sometime this month at the American Brass association country club. It's a little late, but still it's news. . . . Dom Como of Freeman Lane is a former resident of the New York apartment building that was destroyed recently when part of an ice house collapsed against it. ... Several of Dbm's relatives, who made their home in the building, were injured in the crash I. Patrick Regan is back at fhe .same old stand after a siege of illness. Scalpers had a heyday at the Naugatuck-Leavenworth game played last week at the state armory selling- the scarce ducats at inflation prices. These lew individuals were, reported seen at. locations near the armory displaying their wares. A pity such people are allowed to spread their stain, which hitherto was restricted to professional and semi-pro sporting contests, to include high school games. This type of person, if caught, should be dealt with severely by the proper authorities.
