E. Dally N«w»pnpor Pub. AMB Th« Conn. Newspaper Publebere Amt'm THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 1047 \ Trend In Books The report of the librarian of the Howard \Vhittemore Memorial Library, Miss Jessie F. DcShong, serves further to illustrate a trend that lias come to thejore in the brief period'since the end of World War II. "Among adults there was greater use of the library's informational and educational materials and services, a special interest in books on new housing, re- modelling and household carpentry, and a decline of about 50 percent in the use of war bo6ks," Miss DeSliong reported. The trend is a natural one. It is unfortunate for.their authors, however, that some of the best and certainly the most authentic stories related to our recent struggle at arms have come off the presses since VK Day and VJ Pay. Men who were close to the battle scenes, who followed the troops or served with them, have had time since the cessation of hostilities to review and correlate their notes and to put together a comprehensive story with a "now it can be told" theme. Some of the war's best sellers went into extra printings not so much on the strength of their accuracy in detail or because of the writer's smooth touch, but rather as result of their timeliness. Coming out as they did while the war was on they were absorbed hungrily by the reader in his des'iiv to know more about what was going on in the field. The war is over. It is only natural that greater interest should be shown in the truly American pursuits of home building " and repairing, and that readers should tun) their attention to informative and educational subjects. The trend is not limited to Naugatuck. Tt is nation and It must be gratifying to those who have a part in the administration and operation of the library to note that adults and children are showing greater interest in books. Miss 'DeShong's report reveals that 71,40."} books and rmiiumines were circulated during the past year among -',077 adult and 1,50'J children who are registered borrowers. A good book is a good friend. Three Reids Whitelaw Reid, who has .just succeeded his father, the late Ogdcu Held, as head of the New York Herald-Tribune, has his work cut out for him if he equals the ability of his father or his grandfather, after whom he was named. The elder Whitelaw He-id enme to the old New York Tribune in the days of its famous editor, Horace (Trceley, and took over after (ireeley's death. Although for years the Tribune and its successor, the Herald-Tribune, have been unwavering Republican newspapers, l?eid began by supporting (ireeley's Democratic candidacy, for president in 1872, and later backed for governor .Democrats Samuel J. Tilden and Grover C'levelnnd. Under President Harrison he was minister to France, and candidate for vice-president on the defeated Harrison ticket in 1892. The Tribune always stood for clean government; one of the most creditable features of 'Reid's career was his unceasing warfare with Senator Tom Platt. long the Republican boss in New York state. Ogden Reid was .never an npologist for all candidates or activities with the party label. His foreign policy in the '30's was close to that of President Roosevelt. Tt is because he discriminated in the application of his party loyalty that he made the Herald-Tribune the great paper that it is today. Hcrliert.

By The Corporation) FDR'* GIFT FOB LAUGHTKB FDR wax fond of nwapplinr anecdotes with chums. Ho often relayed this one to illustrate adroit diplomacy in action Statesman Talleyrand was once flanked by a beautiful blondo and brunette at a dinn&r table. When the blondo asked which one he preferred, the diplomat answered: "The one who will favor me with a look".... But thp lady wasn't satisfied, inquiring: "Suppose wo were both drowning— which one would you rescue?" Talleyrand retorted that he would help both, or the one In the greatest danger. .. .But she way persistent:. "Suppose the peril was equally imminent?". .. .t^c gamely..replied that 'he would give his right hand to tho blonde "and 'the left to the brunette "But If you could save only one, which one would you choose?" Talleyrand Intoned: "Well, mftdame, you know so many things, 1 suppose you could swim." During the Yalta Conference AP newsboy Douglas Cornell inquired: "How old arc you. Mr. President?" FDR replied: "According to the calendar, my age is 62, but when there is work to be done, I'm 3fj years old." Among the yarns you'll, find. In all Roosevelt biographies ia this | one: At a Press Club dinner in jVVasliington FDR handed out his [autograph f'-eely. One of the newsmen decided (as a joke) to trick the President into placing his signature on a document. On a slip of paper he wrote out an order assigning himself as Ambassador to the North Pole and passed it on for Roosevelt's signature. When the paper was handed back to him, he saw that FDR had initialed it instead of signing ils full name. For "North Pole" he had substituted "South Pole-',?' with the -notation: "Sorry, North Pole already occupied."
