Newepaper FubUbcr* Aae'o MONDAY,"JANUABY ZO ,1047 Post-War Windfall can look fonvurd tlii* your to the lar^ost grand list in its history. Th«t'.s yoocl news to the borough's taxpayers who arc .quite naturally always nlort to developments that mi^lit influence the tux rate, or provide new revenues for services and improvements at no extra cost to them us individuals. Of the approximately throe million dollars expected to be added to the grand list this year, only about $500,000 is directly related to new construction. The balance, and the final figure lias noft-yet finally'been arrived at, will come from the inclusion for tho first time on the list the fixed equipment of the Nnugji- tuck Synthetic Rubber Plant, operated by the l>. S. Rubber Co. The Rubber Co. operates the plant for the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, a government agency. TM the years during the war the equipment was listed as government owned' and thus non-taxable. That exemption has been removed, according to a ruling by Attorney General William T,. Hadden. except in the case of movable equipment at the plant. It's a windfall for Xauga- tuck, one that will provide an additional $(50,000 or more for the operation of bor- oiijgli bnsiness next; voar. The new grand list undoubtedly will top the *27.000,000 mark. N'migahick CUM well use any added rov- c,mic coming its way.

More and more every day the need of a commmmity auditorium, to cite one project, if making its impression. Poi-lmps • this, or some other worthy endeavor now recognixed as a must in the immediate future, will be given the green, signal in anticipation of a bigger tax return i'or the Man's Last Job "The people that disintegrated the atom has now tho mission of integrating Immunity" said Oswuldo Araiiha of Bra/il in* a recent* address. Or to express his idea in simpler and plainer terms, tho nation that mastered the atom now lias the job of mastering humanity itself. This is the biggest of all human tasks, and whether mankind is really capable of it is still uncertain. It means the suppression of war and the gradual development of man into a 'definite, permanent unity of thought and action that will enable the nice to survive and continue its progress indefinitely. - XJbviouslyAlu:.. greatest obstacle is the lireseuf imperfection of man himself, which makes it difficult for our race to work in unity as one great team. The measure of our civil'r/ntion is tho extent to which we can approach and maintain such unity. Mardi Gras Vacation At the New Orleans' Mardi Gras, Feb. 18, hundreds of tourists will lie heading toward the Gulf, visiting historic spots as well us lovely southern gardens on the way. iCtany stales will be represented on the license tags of the automobiles that soon will bo seen iu vacation cavalcade along Koiitt; (>1 out of Memphis, Tenn, The route leads through Vicksburg with itrt battlefields, Natchez and Baton liougc, famous for their fine old gardens, their dramatic river front life. From Xow , Orleans, a drive east over the Old Spanish Trail leads to Biloxi, TStiss., and past some of the South's most elegant mansion. They are lucky people who can take time out for the Mardi Gras! Ami how interesting; it, is to take vacations at tlif- erotit times of your and see some of the strangely varied and alluring sights of the Americas. Do You Remember? One Year Ago Rev. and Mrs. T.

Around The Clock With the spring 1 weather we've been experiencing' of late comes a story from one of our outstanding citizens that he saw a couple of nuts last Saturday. The comment caused a slight uproar, but lit: stuck to his story and reminded that bluebirds were seen last week in Wolcott. The police department reports "progress" in it's study of a six-day-week .... .everything in- the fire department re-, mains status quo. Harold Murtha, head of the street department, is hoping for continued good weather . , . some of the complaints he recei'/es\from residtents would make excellent humorous reading he says. John Thibodoaii, local photographer, was inquiring of conditions in Maifte tin; othi'i- day. Said he'd been thinking'-of taking a trip'up in his new ear just to help break it in John used to be located in San ford, a few miles from Portland. Definitely outnumbered, but seemingly at ease was Elmer W. Haggerty of Waterbury, who was the only man present at the cooking school conducted Friday at the Connecticut Light & Power Co. auditorium here. Martha Logan, Home Economist, was demonstrator. Mr, Haggerty was responsible for pulling the prize winning names out of a box. One of our fans (?) (at least he's a reader) apparently didn't like a Jan. 13 item here referring to Bristol Terrace. .... Unfortunately, he forgot to identify himself so the letter was filed with other such miscellany in our overflowing wastebasket. In keeping with several similar stories we've heard on, the salary question, this one comes from Hamden, where H town meeting recently was conducted. The question of teachers' salaries came up and a little man, wliq has two daughters tdachers took the floor. In his oration lie said, "Teachers have to dress nice. That takes money. Teachers have to smell nice. That takes money. I know a young man who has a job paying much more than teachers get. Do you know what lie does? (Then a dramatic pause.) He's the garbage collector."
