Now Walter B. Weisenberger, executive vice president, of the National Association of Manufacturers, denounces such compulsion. lie calls it a system of decree by a political tribunal, inevitably ending in involuntary servitude. •Whether the aforesaid congressmen will now change their minds depends on whether they are for arbitration or mere- l against the unions. Debt-Ridden Babies At the moment the average American is currying MfM2.X> as his part of the national debt. .By -June 1948 he will have to reckon with an amount $11.Ui less. This will not be due to anything the new Republican Congressmen will think up. The cut will come because there will be proportionately enough increase in population to shave the individual share. Here's the best argument advanced yet for upping the birthrate. It's a bit hard on the babies, but for a few years at least, they will have so many other interests that the debt business won't bother them. Radar In The Kitchen liadaranges arc soon to bo a reality. This is an application of the magic radar lo cooking. These stoves will be made first for airliners and restaurants, then for homes. By this supcr-h&h frequency concentrated through a horn-like arrangement, the food can be prepared in a matter of seconds: gingerbread ready to eat. in '-'9 seconds; a hamburger in .15 seconds: a frankfurter in 8 seconds. This boats the new pressure cooking devices. Mother can stay later down town or at the bridge party, nnd still haw a delicious hot meal ready. But don't expect a radnrange next week. Al Capone, the Chicago racketeer, is reported to have died owing the government money on his income tax. Millions can testify that it is not necessary to die to do, this. One Year Ago Joseph F. Smith was chairman of the committee in charge of the Eagles'• Sncngerfcst. o—O—o W. Huclncc, loft forward, led the Bluebirds to victory over the Shooting: Stars, o—O—o 20 Years Ago George Cleary returned to his studies nt Harvard after o visit with his parents, Mr. nnd Mrs. Robert Cleary of Bradley street. o—O—o Y Physical Director Fred Ashmoro announced a change in nights for basketball, o—O—o 30 Years Ago Mr. and Mrs. Edward 3. Ahenrn of Mcndow street, visited relatives in Springfield, o—O—o Charles E. Spencer of Fnlrvlew nvoniiu spent the weekend in New York. Around The Clpck We read that Benny Goodman won't he making any more recordings for Columbia, and it's all over the newest, bit. of eccentric note blending, "Open the Door, hMcluml" . . . but he has a new contract with Capitol, so Vou'11 still be hearing of the favorites on records. "Friendship for all and entangling alliances with none" was the old American motto; hut now we just hook up nnd keep nn eye on each other. Thinking of music, we thought the high school crowd sounded excellent in its rendition of school songs at the basketball game Saturday eve . . . and on the game, there was at least one placid character in the Leavenworth stands, and she let our -managing editor know all about it, when after a seige of his exuberant cheers she turned and told him she didn't think his shouting was at all necessary. Arlene Sullivan of the Barnum Court Sullivrins, is recuperating after being laid u]) a couple i-f weeks due to a head injury. . . . the petit Arlene was going through a doorway at the same time another" person was attempting the passage, and accidentally hit her head, with .the result being a slight concussion. A street department crew worked most of Friday digging up the gutter leading to the catch basin near the Naugatuck Fuel Company on Church street. After it was dug up the gutter was resloped to afford better drainage. The crew used an air hammer on the job and they really beat out a tune with it. But it didn't "send" any one. Police Chief John J. Gormley said Saturday that 25 new parking meters had been received at the local police station. A total of 100 meters are on order to replace those now in use. The pscndo spring weather has even caught flowers and bushes off guard . . . Xew street woman reports her hyacinths in full bloom . . . and other residents say early budding of lilac nnd other perennial bushes is in evidence . . ..let's hope it won't, spoil their normal blossoming when the right time comes. The Eastern Malleable Iron Co. is manufacturing a tap spigot to be used in obtaining sap from sugar maple trees . . . local residents who have received some are planning toj tap their trees when the proper time arrives. . . . March is believed to be a good time and be sure the tree is a sugar maple and not some other type of maple tree. A hearty welcome to George Dillon who yesterday took over his desk at the footwear plant, as assistant to Ed McGrath in public relations. . . . Joe Santore looks mighty fine in his navy blues. .... He tool: in the Leavemvorth-Naugy game Saturday and said the experience was something like'a storm at sea. . . . We note thnt an adjoining commuii'ty has decided to make plans for a new high school—and without waiting for any report from the State Board of Education. . . . Seems to us a community should know its needs. Allen N. Sylvia, seaman, second class, son of Mr. and Mrs. Anthony F.'
