Newspaper Publihera A<»'D WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 20, 1947 Master Contract Company and union officials have hailed the terms of a "master" contract adopted by the United States Kubber' Company and Hi local unions of the United Rubber, Cork, Linoleum and Plastic Workers of America as a basis i'or "improved relationship." Tho contract, affecting local plants and workers as it does, lias been subject of much discussion during the several weeks of negotiation that preceded its adoption. True, it provides new benefits for the workers in the way of severance pay, lib- erali/cd vacation plan, grievance procedure, checkoff of dues and assessments; it sets up a procedure that will stream- lint- and centrali'/.e future negotiations and that is a feature desirable to all concerned. But the terms of the agreement arrived at, desirable as they may be to company and union, do not make as great an impression in the public eye as the dignified and cooperative spirit that marked the negotiations between the parties. Particularly in Naugatuck. the rubbc. industry may well be proud of the record of the conduct of company and labor in tlie-avoidanco-of attitude or action that might have contributed to something less desirable than the existing pleasant relationship. Signing of the new contract is added evidence that labor and management-can work out their mutual problems across the conference table, and without new legislative restraint, provided there is displayed a mutual aiid cooperative spirit of understanding and responsibility. " At this period of crisis in the field of labor relations, friends of labor in Congress have been supplied, by virtue of this latest development-in the rubber industry, a new talking point against anti- labor" proposals that stand excellent chance of sailing through on the strength of development* reflecting unpleasant relationships in other industries. Auriol's Hard Lot Vincent Atiriol, the new president of France, deserves better hick than his predecessors. Of the 14 heads of state under the Third Republic six were forced out of office, two were assassinated and one died. Only five served full terms. If this sounds bad, remember that out of seven elected American presidents between 18(i5 and KH)1, three were assassinated. The fundamental trouble with the French presidency is that it is not a job worth having. It is about as inconsequential as our own vice-presidency. The real head of the state is the premier. When tl.iu-.pmsidunl .tries .to do something, .if only 1.o venture an opinion, he is flouted: and his powers are nil. No wonder when (ieorges Clemencean, premier during World War J, was asked which of the two presidential candidates he was supporting, he replied, "The stupider." Perhaps Vincent Auriol will consent to be a purely decorative head of state. If not, he is in for unhappy times. The College Mill Dr. Charles AVoolsey Cole, president of Amhersl, College, seems ID tliink : there is too rmirli cramming and jamming in college education. Spoakin^ 1 to an alumni group, lie says: ''We seem to l>e trying to process students instead of trying to educate them. It i.M inipossihlo to educate men mid make thorn hroad l>y mass methods." This is douhtless true, especially at tho present time when the colleges seem to bu flooded with more students than they eau handle. Keal education was never intended for rapid mass production. Yet tho musics rush in. Many of them just want i'oothall. but most of them probably want real education; and how they are going to get their share of it in the general scramble is a serious problem.

Question lias arisen as to the legitimacy of two motorized stores vending products in the borough and as to whether or not owners of the vehicles are subject to licenses. A borough ordinance rules that the rolling stores are within the law and may sell, distribute and deliver milk, teas, coffees, spices, groceries, meats and bakery goods without first obtaining a license. Favorable comment comes on the erecting of street signs in the borough ... it is believed one more $1,000 appropriation will take care of the remaining intersections now without signs, FcJi.x Zembruski has announced that liis orchestra will be at; full strength' for dancing after the basketball games at the March of Dimes benefit at the YMCA Friday night.
