JANUARY 15. 1W7 Too Great For One Mon-iman Smith, United Press AVhite HOHKU CorrcsipomleiU, concludes his- bright book. "Thank you, Mr. President," with an interesting little picture. Jt is of President Truman, taking an hon- oraiy degree i'rom the small Washington College, on the eastern shore of Maryland. "In the bright sun on the platform looking out over the college campus,'the President's hair was white. "When he- took office a year before lie was referred to as 'gray-haired*. "Tiro President looked down at the ^'4 graduates seated on the campus lawn. .He said, he wa.s thankful that under the American system of government, there was sufficient diffusion of power to prevent any one man or group of men from gaining absolute control over the nation. " 'Sometimes they think they have it,' he said, 'but it has never turned out that way and it never will,' " Including himself." Sometimes one man seems indispensable in his time—but he never is. There wns Washington, There was .Jefferson. But the affairs of the nation went on acceptably under Adams, Madison,- Monroe, There was Lincoln, wliose deatli was a tragedy indeed, especially f<>r the South His immediate successors were not adequate, yet the nation worked out of that bad time in the end. More lately, there was Roosevelt. There was Cordell 11 til I as Secretary of State. The other day there was Byrnes. But the nation is great and no one man can hold all the- power at one time or most of the power for a long time. All things change. Byrnes, a good man. indeed, gives way to Marshall, another excellent choice. Big Farm Show lvaiiiH'* furriK-rs. mill many from ncii?lil)OiTiiy: states, ure rejoicing' in the rovivtil of Stalo Farm AVeek wliioli in miil-.liiniuiry will take over Hnn-isbiiru. Tin- show was suspeiidofl rluring' hostilities wliun the j,'ovenimont took over tho ,.15 fu'ivs <>f ^rouiuls and buildings for war work, luit it is on again this year. It is the. Mggest indoor agrieiiltuval exhibit in the world, sponsored by 30 co-operating 1 farm organizations. Half a million people visit the exhibits, many staying the entire week in the city. Once more people have- time, anil spare, for the pursuits of peace. Such a leathering of farm folk as this famous Pennsylvania program brings together will do much to bring sound prosperity to their state, and their nation, too. Why The Difference? Notre .Dame and the Army will give up their annual game after next fall because they feel that, the football tail has rim away with the educational dog. Such immense crowds have seen the jgames or tried to, have demanded tickets and bet on the game, that both' institutions were in danger of-having their rdni-ational aims completely forgotten. It is odd that the rising popularity of professional football lias not dampened interest, in the college game. Professional baseball has so outshone the college variety that, little interest, comparatively speaking, is taken in it. Some colleges have even given up intercollegiate baseball. Yet inter-collegiate football seems even more popular than ever, despite all the new professional competition. Why the difference? women know what it means. You Remember? One Year Ago James L.

Kiddie Galvin and Steve Owens tell us they'll he part of the cast of the St. Francis min- stiel when it is presented at Columbus hall come next March. . . .

Ex-servicemen, now students at Naugatuck High School, are strong supporters of the Greyhound basketball team. When the team .went to West Point recently the servicemen hired a bus to fol- ow.

We realix.e the weather has been rather cold lately; nevertheless we think Tommy Fitzgerald's method, of keeping himself warm is rather extreme. Tommy was seen walking up Church street the other day, carrying a fire in the hood of his parka. it worth while to kick him Dianne Parsons is hoping for another snow fall soon, so she can continue her study of sculpture. Dianne 's winter hobby is modeling snowmen. She intends to work from snow, to soap, to clay, and eventually to marble as a medium for her figures.

Boy Scout Troop 15 handed Troop 9 a 5 to 2 defeat in a hockey match played last Saturday at Baummer's rink. Al Schiener, assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 15, is mighty certain that a return match scheduled for this coming Saturday will be a very rough one indeed.

They'll .just "let George do it.'.'. Tis said that when the St. Francis sixth grade basketball team recently played the fifth grade the court seemed to bulge with players. According to a source (not always reliable) both teams seemed to have a dozen players on the floor at various periods during the game. Lorraine Murphy, School street, celebrates her birthday today. Miss Murphy- is a student at the New Haven Teachers' College. Harry Anderson's birthday is January 18. Harry is reputed to. be quite a golfer.
