Newepaper Pubishsrs AM'D WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 1M7 Important Assignment Naugatuck's native-son Congressman secm.s to have won the respect of his elders, even though his arrival upon the Congressional scene took place less than three weeks ago. To be singled out tor assignment to the Joint Congressional Committee on Atomic Energy is a high honor for Representative .James T. Patterson. The appointment, announced by Speaker Joseph AV. Martin, Jr., came as a surprise to the former Marine major who was elected in November by the overwhelming plurality to represent the Fifth Congressional District of Connecticut. Whether his. selection from among other freshman members was made on the strength of Favorable impression recently created by our soft-spoken, quick-thinking Congressman, or his past record, or both, is not known, Whatever the case, the District can look to future Washington doings confident that its Representative is looked upon favorably by his veteran colleagues. If such were not the case Mr. Fatterson would not have boon assigned to the committee whose business it is to deal closely with a subject immediately, more important to the world at large than any other—atomic energy. That he accepts the assignment with understanding of its tremendous responsibilities is reflect- t;d in his statement: "Thq question of what course this nation is to follow in regard to the release and the use of atomic energy information and the requisite materials for-construction of the bomb is of greatest, concern to all peoples of the world. "Our decision on this matter may well decide the course of human affairs for generations to come." And so it may. Mr. Patterson's constituents may w<;ll join with him,in feeling that, his assignment "as a member of the Joint Committee on Atomic Energy is most gratifyiiy;." Another Venezuela? Secretary Marslinll's varied past CMi 1 - uur must liavo already taught liim the lesson that all secretaries of state soon learn. Hint, troubles pop up in the most unexpected quarters. Tn 18f>/! Richard Olney of Boston, President Cleveland's new attorney gonernl, was asked liy the President to study the boundary dispute between Venezuela and .British Guiana, as something serious lurre might develop at any time. Vene- y.ticla tc» Olney, as to most other Americans, was an utterly iinthoujjht-oi 1 topic, Plenty of subjects filled the headlines, but nut Vene/.uela. Sure enough, the United States .soon protested ngairist British encroachments on Venezuelan territory. Two years later, when Olney had become secretary of state, the rift had become so great that Cleveland sent a special message to Congress, virtually threatening war unless the .British arbitrated the boundary dispute. All Venexnela was not. to the British, worth war with this country, and they agreed to arbitration. The world's trouble spots should all be pretty well known by now, but some strange perils may lurk unsuspected among them. What A Disappointment! Harvard has developed a calculating machine by whiclua man can in one second multiply numbers running into the billions. Addition of figures as large takes only a fifth of a second. But alas, it doesn't balance a checkbook. Nor does it show why the last- pay check disappeared so soon. Do You Remember?

And makes a medley of my dream, A mingling torture and delight— There arc sums unfinished over night Just us I scale a castle wall, A tread resounds within the hall. Then I again resume the fight With steady arm and step so light. But ns I. reach the highest beam, Sounds milkman's bell and whistle's scream. As I '.tike bark for homeward strand, I feel the touch of heavy hand: My sword and helmet arc no more— I'm landed on the bedroom floor. FLORA B.
