l-AOK S-NAIIOATUCK NEWS (CONN.). TUESDAY, FEB. 4. 1047 DREW PEARSON ON •• '• ''' WASHINGTON MERRY-GO-ROUND Drew Pearson Says: Warren Austin Realistic About U. S. Job In Keeping World At Peace; Is Optimistic Atomic World War Can Be Averted; Farley Spurned G. O. P. Request For Funds. Washington—Not nil of wluit ex-Senator Austin told the Scimte and House Aimed Forces Committees leaked to the press wlion he gave them a closed-door account of liis work as U.S. dele-ate to the United Nations. Most important thinu: Austin said was that he was highly optimistic that an atomic world war can be averted? But he was equally realistic about what the United States must do to keep the world at peace. Three major policies must he followed to avoid what ho called "Old March Of Dimes Aucjfan Sponsored by The Naugatuck News At The Salem Playhouse TONIGHT! nessnen. Man War": 1. Keep the utomlc-bomb secret until we have complete assurances of Intornatlonul pence. 2. Maintain fx Htrong mllltru-y force through universal training 3. Retain control ol'Pacific island bases. Thn former Vermont Senator told the two Armed Service Committees thnt unices wo arc strong ourselves and safe from attack, wo cannot effectively prosecute and enforce International tvmlty. Ho also warned the Congress should not bo too h.isty In crltlcl/inR seeming- Inaction of the United Nations government since a plan to outlaw w a r cannot be accomplished ovcrnigh't. "It will take a lot of patience." Austin ompnasizcd. "Piitloncc and negotiation. "By thnt T do not mean telling the other follow what to do. .1 mean continued cllscuswion or'dlf- rerence.i between nations until wo have reached n common ground of understanding."

"You cannot escape that responsibility." Austin dwelt at such length on the need for universal training that he apologized for his verbosity. "Maybe it sounclo to some of you like I'm lobbying," he said. Note—-Despite Senator Austin's plea, enlistments have been so la-rge that the Army, of Its own volition, has suspended, use cC the draft.

Those had been closed during half time Intermission and an a consequence; the atmosphere in the armory had become excessively hot and'close. Say' did not .want his basketball players breathing Impure air. Nor did he want' them using extra energy because of unnecessarily high temperatures. Ray looks after his players. That's part of his job as coach, and Ray believes in doing what Ms- Job-calls for to the best of his ability. One of the things you find out about Ray within a very short time is thai he works hard at his job as coach of the basketball team and equally hard as director of athletics. He is one of those fortunate individuals •! capacity for detail. Translated into terms applicable _o basketball coaching, capacity for detail means capability of treating a squad as a collection of individuals. Know* „ Ray Foley has 'that capability. Ho has made a atiidy of each of his regulars and first string sub- stftutes and can tell each one's strong points and weaknesses. He known whnt lads are apt to react emotionally and what ones are phlegmatic. He works his players like a skilled organist works his keyboard. That is one of the reasons his Greyhound basketball team has been so successful 'to date. A Yale football mentor on a recent visit to the borough remarked that a good couch is one who can make out the right schedule. Scheduling- is another detail to whjch Ray devotes a lot of attention. The late Knutc Rockne always maintained that no football team wag ever great until It was beaten once. A highly important detail of scheduling is to plan for defeats at the right places There la no better way of building up a jittery team's confidence than by a aeries of victories. Conversely, there is no better way- of curing overconfldence than by a defeat. A good coach plans 'his schedule so that a needed defeat' will' come at the right place. The.. Greyhound's schedule was mapped out in advance 'with this thought in mind. However, the team which waa supposed to administer defeat at the time when it would accomplish moat psychologically, didn't quite. Had they done s-o, a highly surprising loss later on might not'have occurred. Ray puts it a little more whimsically and somewhat regretfully. "The team we picked to beat as," he said, "didn't cooperate." That spoecih throws additional light on Ray's character. A Foley- coachcd team doesn't lose a game; the other team wins it. In other words, a Foley team on the floor is always trying to win, and the combination' -out theiv is the one, which in Ray's opinion has tho best chance of victory under existing circumstances. Attention To Detail Ray has brought the same careful attention to detail to his job as director of athletes an he has to his coaching assignment. Judging from what he doe», Ray l« flrmly convinced that a director of e>th- Ictics is .supposed to effect the most good for the most people. He took his Greyhound home games to the Waterbury armory this year so that more Naugatuck people would -nave L'he opportunity „ .„....„ „ „.„ „ to nnjoy hich school basketball, players which is reflected in better When people were letl ' standinc t canl performance on the floor, outside after the armory doors of reserve scat and limited ticket talia which would prevent any such future .occurrence. When advance indications of intense local Interest in another game KCCTn- ed to hint toward a possibility • of ticket speculation. Ray held up nubile sale until the lost minute to prevent anyone getting'control nf a sizeable block. That bis hunch was right was proved by the fact that there was ticket speculation. That his prfiventative method was effective was proved by the fact that such speculation as occurred was on a sharply limited scale. Athletic* For All Ray believes in athletics for everyone 'who wants them. To this end he inaucurated the first swim team in Naugatuck High school athletic history. He has thrown the weight of his office behind the operation of a Freshman .color l>8.«- ketball league and a hlffh school jntermural league. *• Ray's players like him; that, alone speaks volume.?. At Christmas time the squad chipped in and bought him a -present wnich was presented bv Captain Vin Healy. w'ho made an appropriate speech. Ray'e popularity with his squad is not bought at the expense of any lax discipline or wtahy-wasfty handling of star players. It Is achieved by his absolute fairness. The hovs respect Ray because be is impartial, and liking naturally follows re- epect. Ray has carried the idea of democracy to his management of ;T squad. He will talk over proposed changes with team members and explain t-he reason behind new plans. His thinking is logical, and in most instances the boys arc able High School Athletic Director Had Able Tutor In Father, Late Peter J. Foley the bDBtbnll, basketball and football teams at the High school, and was captain of trio baseball tout). He played on the same team* at the Catholic University of America and captained «)' three sport*. Ho learned much of what he knows about athletics under the tutelage of one of the (greatest coaches in Connecticut icholastic competition—his father, the late Perer J. Foley, To come to a. fuller understand- jnj? of Ray Foley a s director off athli>t:cs and coach, one must come 16 appreciate t'oe fact that Peter J; Kolcy probably did more tor sport* in the borouch durinc his lifetimt than a.ny other individual. In tht fiicn of a woeful Jack of plant -and equipment, 'he made Xaugatuck' High school a respected opponent in football, basketball and baseball: Behind the rabid interest in (portt in' the borough today in the face of too few and inadequate {,-ymnesi- ums, lack of sufficient outdoor playing space and apparatus and t'.io total absence of anything like sufficient spectator accommodations -is the personality, and drive of the late Peter Foley. Now Ray has taken over most at the duties handled so capably by •his late father. That he is •well aware of his responsibilities ,. is shown by the amount -of time, effort and thought he puts into his job. And if ho does not discharge these responsibilities to the bttt were ordered closed at one jf the Greyhound early acasun games, Ray immediately instituted a sys- Ray Background has an extensive background in athletics.
