Newspaper Publ»h«r» AM'D FRIDAY, JANUARY 24, 1947 Popularity Deserved Never boforeTirT the history of the Nuifeatuck High School has the race for distinction of "most popular boy ended in a dead heat.

Of course any woman with l.air like hers can attordo defv conventions. Her hair is corn-silk. vcliou'-gold, worn in .flat Langs and so t neck-length curls. It would be a shame to cover that with one of the grotesque al- r'airs c.irrcntlv called hats.

Fiction And Life A report from the American Library Association says that readers are dissatisfied with the fiction available. There is no demand among the general reading public for books about the war. They stand untouched on the shelves while patrons search in vain for books which mirror Ihoir own problems, peopled with characters who solve these problems in ways which seem natural and possible-. Many writers bdiove that in order to picture reality they must dwell on the sordid, cheap, sensational aspects of life. Life does have these aspects in some places and at some times. But the average life is not lived at^ such levels,' being neither sordid nor sublime, but some- whore between. The average reader wants ' books which, without lacking drama, still reflect life as he knows 1 it, and which give him a feeling of kinship with the characters. Someone should make this clear to writers and to pnb- Do You Remember? One Year Ago '". Mr: nnd Mrs. Cyrus W. Wilcox, 218 Cherry street, announced the birth of a "daugnter'.i 'Mrs. Ellis'Greel was chairman of-the-Congregational Parish Players "Whiz Quiz" program. 20 Years Ago v Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Huband ^returned to their home on Cliff'street after visiting Mr. and Mrs. Coulson H. Squires of'New Haven. o—O—o 'John Gorman, Jr., returned to Brooklyn, N. Y., after visiting his -parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Gorman of Gorman street. i o—O—o , 30 Years Ago Mrs. Clayton L. Klein of Churcn street returned from Flushing, L. 1.1 where she spent a few days, o—O—o Miss Julia BirnTjaum returned from New York city whore she studied music. Around The Clock When Spec Shea went down to New York recently to sign a Yankee contract he visited with Joe DiMaggio in the latter's hotel room. Spec -and Joe batted tlxc breex.e for the better part of-an afternoon. Thoughtful Spec 'returned to the borough with two of Joe's autograph, one for the Healy twins and the other for Clarence Hnigh. , And speaking of Clarence, who is one of the borough's most ardent sports fans, we have a hunch he'll be among the first to order his ticket for the March of Dimes sports benefit, Friday evening Jan. 31, at the Y. The co-operation of all those who are helping to put over this March of Dimes benefit is a good example of the warm heartedness of those connected with sports. Fritz Klambt and Herb Brown who so generously offered the free use of Y facilities, Euss Weaving;, local has-. ketball official who is'donating- his services, and those prominent figures in local sports, who so readily agreed to help out by serving on Chairman Frank Green's committee, and the members of the four basketball teams participating, all deserve a vote of thanks for their spirit of wholehearted willingness to help. Bill Leuchars will be getting nervous indigestion or may even contract a serious gastric ulcer if certain high school girls don't stop teasing him while he partakes of his afternoon snack at a local eatery. Madeline Thurston and Kay Houston enjoyed ice skating a few days ago. It was the first time in several years they had laced on a pair of skates. They must have had a fine time for now it is rumored that Sue McNiolly is contemplating a try at the winter sport. Lollie Jenkins of Detroit, Michigan, is visiting at the home of her parents, Mr, and Mrs. James Forchielli, 36 High street. Mrs. Jenkins has her baby daughter, Arlene Francis, with her and plans to have the child baptized in Naugatuck. Miss Rita Bartolomucci will be godmoth-, er to the girl. Attorney Thomas Neary was absent from borough court Tuesday. The report was that, lie had gone to Washington, I). C. A few days ago Police Captain Anthony Malone had a head cold and now Fire Chief John 'J. Sheridan is nursing a minor one. Must be a lot of germs on Maple street. Friends arc offering congratulations to Mrs. Harry Churchill, .58 Prospect street, on her recent birthday. . . . The pleasant little lady who wins new friends each ilny for Stratton's Restaurant is Irene LeFave. Sure, boxing .arid' wre'stling are productive pursuits. 'New''York State makes nearly half a million dollars a year out of 'em. When you get right down iff it, nearly every mother deserves a star. But most mothers have to wait till they get 'em in their -heavenly, .crowns. •^ 1 ^_,^^,_^ - -^t^-- THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN THATOifrflT MA^StSslBj WALTER WINCHELL Coast-To-Coast THK BROADWAY SCENE Winchellc'brities: VilUjalmur Stef- ansson, the Arctic explorer, gad- dins about midtown minus overcoat or kady. - - -Geraldine Fitzgerald, the carrot-topped colleen (and her bridegroom), dining with .their socially-listed in-laws at the Colony.
