Any opposition the hill may moot is not expected to lie ol' loc-nl origin. As n matter of,'•fact, the effort to appropriate $272,000 for const met ion of M ii!irters for Company l'\ (Joimecticnt National ('Jiiim!, moots with approval I'rom all concerned here, so far as is known. And why-not? There will bo no expense involved on the part, of the bor- onu-h, and Ihoro is a possibility that the proposod drill shod may be made available for public functions, social and nth-, Iftic, aside from activities of tlio National (inard. ; Tin- drill shod will be slightly smaller tluin that of the \Vaterbiiry armory, where the Xmi.n-atuck High School basketball team has boon forced this year 10 play its important home Barnes because of the lack of suitable facilities in Xaugatnck for the purpose. An armory here undoubtedly would be made avail- .•iblc for similar purposes, provided there was no conflict or interference with the military program for which the structure is primarily intended, Whatever restrictions might hr placed on its use for functions other than military, any privileges extended in the interest of local sports and social programs would be an improvement over present conditions. But at best the armory will not filr" the need that is Nmigatnek's for » community center the primary purpose of which Avi'll be just that and nothing other. All support and encouragement possible should be given sponsors of the armory plan, luit not with the mistaken notion that it will be the answer to a need that ha* too-long existed. There is grofit danger that in the early flushes of enthusiasm over tin- armory, too little thought will be given the complexities that could arise should the military suddenly find that any exigency precluded use of tlio building for anything but stricfly military purposes. And that, could happen. Crazy Driving The automobile, it is hardly necessary to say, was devised for the comfort and convenience of mini, but hasn't alto- kether turned out that way. Recoil t reports give appalling evidence of the havoc wrought on the highways by need- |ess speed and criminal carelessness. One of the greatest blessings and comforts of mankind is changed, far too often, into a peril and a curse. Irresponsibility and arrogance on the highways has almost reached the limit of legal and moral endurance, Lately many of the citie? and states are showing n tendency to turn hard- boiled again,. This is good as far as it goes, but irregular crack-downs seldom last long or do much good. The job calls for steady and persistent operation and relentless observance of the law. One city recently reported eighty-one auto crashes in twelve hours. Man The Foolish "Homo Sapiens." or "Man Ilio Knower." i* wlint they used to cull this egotistic critter, supposed to IK> the very top of creation. But we don't hoar so much of that nowadays. "With nil the fool things, including jumping' out o!.' windows 86 floors hitdi, that have heen going- on lately in Xew York, it may seem more reasonable to look into the funny pa#e in the Sunday paper and call him "Man. the Simp." Still, we're not all that way yet, nnd there is some hope. Athletics are fiine, lnit a little head work now nnd then does no hnrm.

While chowders are considered typical American dishes, they were first cooked by the fisherfolk of Brittany. Villagers would bring- contributions of fish to a dinner and add them to the common cauldron. The name "chowder" stems from chaudiere, the cauldron. Early American colonists first learned about the dish from the French, and so chowders are associated with the history of New England. Nangjitnck merchants are to be commended for their response ill donating for benefit affairs. . . . Tuesday night saw contributions from businessmen for the March of Dimes auction, and Thursday night will see more gifts from storekeepers being sold at the Veterans of Foreign Wars "Country Store" for the benefit of the VFW National Foundation. Harry Michaels, prominent jeweler of these parts, postcards from Houston, Texas, where he reports life is very pleasant, . . . Firemen responded with their usual fine spirit to the appeal for aid in connection with the March of Dimes. ... A moving- job from the Connecticut Light & Power Co. to the Salem Playhouse, scene of The News auction, was handled efficiently by Capt. Jim Grant and John Moroney. . . . And they were on tap at the auction, with Fire Chief John J. Sheridan, and Firemen Francis Galvin and Edward Galvin to assist in the conduct of the program. Hemy Bag-ley's wound, smack in the middle'of his nose, is slowly healing. Henry has quite an explanation of how he was injured. Ruth and Pete Platt, Madison avenue, New York, frequent visitors to the borough, are making plans for spending their summer vacation in Naugatuck. Mrs. Platt is the former Ruth Richards. Attorney Thomas Noary could have, used a pair of colored glasses in borough court the other day. A rolled-tip window shade was letting the sun's rays hit Attorney Ncary in the eyes. So the prosa- cutor climbed up on the window sill to unroll the shade. No go. The shads remained up. And sun beams kept flooding the court room. John S. Downs celebrates his 25th anniversary with the United States Rubber Company Footwear plant Friday. Mr. Downs, who works in the Waterproof packing Department, has bought a small farm in Vermont and now is making- plans to move there and enjoy his years of retirement. Lucy Nardello joins the twenty-five year group of the United States Rubber Company Footwear plant on Tuesday, February 11. A charter member of the Boot .Room Serviceman Committee, she is active in department-sponsored affair?. Kenny Clymer let it be known that some of the fouls called against Naugatuck in the recent game with Leavenworth were grievous errors. He was of the opinion, however, that all those called against Leavenworth were well merited, ONCIE3AMS HOUSEHOLD WALTER WINCHELL SCRAPBOOK Coast-To-Coast STARS' OUESSING ItOOMS "Theater Handbook": "An actor die servant of the public ...go-od manners are inexpensive."

Which is a perfect description of Ina Claire. Mildred. Dunnock,. offering one of the great character performances in Lillian Hcllman's "Another Part of the Forest," was approached by Herman Shumlin to play Birdie in the other play of the same sage, "The Little Foxes." Mildred, expecting her ba'by at the time, couldn't take the rolo, and now plays with Margaret Phillips' Birdie an older woman. . Her greatest prize was offered by a visitor to her drcssing->j'oom mate cf "The Corn Is Green." in which the fragile Miss Dunnock played a prissy spinster. . . ."She's a perfect old maid, if ever I've seen one," the visitor said. At that time, she'd been married six years.) Actresses treasure everything from opening night telograms to oil portiaits of themselves. .Enid Markey's favovrite tribute came from Playwright Paul Osborn. 'When an actress pleases a playwright, she's triumphant," Enid says.... When first reading for Osborn's "Morning at Seven," she watched 'him go into conference with Dwight .Deem Wiman . . "The pi it's yours," Wiman said. "Paul Osborn says that' when you bring' more to the , part: than is already there, it'a your part."
