JANUARY 23. 1047 Louis Rubin The borough was slioekod yes to rein.v to realize Umt one of its most successful young businessmen, one who grew up with the business lie inherited, had died. Young in years but possessed oi' n wisdom that won. to him the respect and admiration of his business associates, and of a character that insured the confidence of those he served, Louis Rubin was a citizen whose membership was an asset. 10 (he community. That lie should pass on to the next world at such a younjy age, when apparently his future spread invitingly before him, is a serious loss to his family, to the busines world and to the borough at large. All who knew Louis Rubin were attracted to him by his modesty, his un- ass.nminj;' friendliness, and his willingness to assist in any venture that was for the bettermi'nt of his fellow-man. We extend our deepest sympathies to his bereaved; we can appreciate their deep sriof. Autos For Less A cut of, $2") on n car selling- for more than $1,000 may not seem very much. 'But it's a cut. It probably indicates the tnni of « tide. It certainly indicates that prices of other cars need go no higher. Cotfon dresses need not go any higher, either. Nor shirts, nor fumiture, nor electric washing machines. Too many things have been priced far ont of line. It is high time they came down to earth, where ordinary earthy folks can buy them when they need them. Neither flivvers nor butter nor newsprint nor clothes are down yet. to where their prices make sense to the customer, but they are beginning to slide. The Fords say frankly they are in a mass production business and expect to do better with prices at which they can expect mass buying then when they can sell only to a few and to those infrequently. They want lots of buyers getting new cars every year. The reduction is a good move, and should be followed by many makers of cars, cribs and cooking' pots. Europe And Hollywood American movies, with their technical perfection, their beauty of costume and setting, their ideal/ of luxury and seeming 1 laxity of morals, are feared by European political leaders. This fact was brought ont by William Hen ton, Assistant Secrottu'y of State, in a speech before n meeting of the Chicago Council of Foreign Relations. Ben ton cites the fact that the movies lire skilfully constructed to appeal to the masses, and thus exercise a wide influence in all pails of the world. He says European intellectuals arc horrified when they hear their children "speaking English with an American accent, using American slang,, and discussing 1 love, divorce and murder in Hollywood epigrams." The speaker might have added that intelligent Americans are also horrified nt these developments in their children, and that the remedy may lie in providing counter-attractions on a higher level to exercise a stronger influence. That is really a problem worthy of our best minds. Times Have Changed With President Truman calling for a 37 billion dollar budget and even the strictest advocate of economy unable to suggest a cut below 29 billions, it seems a far cry from 1890. Then the House of ^Representatives changed bands in the fall election, largely because it had dared to spend $1,000,000,000 in a single year. Even more remote arc the days of Jef- i'erson, who governed the country well on $3,000,000 a' year, Do You Remember? One Y A ar Ago Mr. and Mrs. Prank Edmonds, 564 Rubber avo- nuc, announced the birth of a son. o—O—o Miss Nellie Lawton, 213 South Main Rtreet, was in Florida on vacation. . p—O—o 20 Years Ago ' Robert McGrath returned to New Haven after visiting tils mother, Mrs. Margaret McGrath of Orchard terrace. o—O—o Clayton L.

Around The Clock THE AUTUMN LEAVES Bright, changing Autumn leaves; There's nothing sad to me, In your downward flutter, When drifting fi'om the tree. Before your winter's nest, More beautiful you seem, When gayly, gently twirling down, Than when in springtime's green. So may It be with us, When our life's work Is done, Muy added peace and beauty come. At setting of the sun. FLORA B.
