"Dedicated To Community Public 68th Year, No. Leased Wire Service of the United Press TUESDAY, JAN. 6, 1958 ESTABLISHED 1885 8 PAGES PRICE FIVE CENTS General The 1953 session of the General Assembly convenes tomorrow, with Republicans holding the majority reins in both the House and Senate. A Republican Governor and Lieutenant Governor make for complete one-party domi- nation of the legislative program. On the state level the related problems of budget and taxes will be of major consequence, with Governor Lodge pledged to a policy of enonomy that merits wait-and-see enthusiasm among taxpayers. Being in complete com- mand of the session, the Republican legislators will quickly either prove or disprove their contention that they can run the state better and more economically without deal- ing with their Democratic rivals. From the Naugatuck angle, the 1953 session takes on a most interesting and promising series of possibilities. For the first time in many years Naugatucjt is sending to the house one Republican and one Democrat, rather than two Democrats. In addition, the 14th District Senator is a resident of Naugatuck, affording the borough three rather than the two townsfolk in the Assembly. Rep. Adam Mengacci, a Democrat, is a veteran of two terms in the House. His service has been of the aggressive type, and his accomplishments have been many. He can be expected to raise his voice strongly for Naugatuck measures: in all truth, he'll have tcrif he's to be heard this year. Rep. J. Rudolph Anderson, elected to his first term in the House in November, is no embryo in the political field. Working with the majority in the House, and with Rep. Mengacci (if the honeymoon of harmony lasts) he will be in strategic position to enhance the Naugatuck legislative agenda. Both have expressed themselves somewhat in agree- ment on general questions of charter amendment and re- vision. Perhaps with the combination' of one Democrat and one Republican in the House this session, the long- debated, unsettled problem of how to bring our charter up to date will see at least partial solution. Senator Stephen J. Sweeney, former Judge of Probate in the Naugatuck-Beacon Falls district, will be the 14th Senatorial District's spokesman in the upper chamber of the Assembly. Upon his square and seasoned shoulders will fall the principal burden of the local only in matters of overall state importance, but of the district as well. The Naugatuck team can do much for our community in the 1953 session of the General Assembly. Two Republicans and one Democrat should be in posi- tion td whip up strong support for speedy consideration of measures beneficial to the community. The Republi- cans arc hi unquestionably, .but'the Democrats give promise that -they will not be lacking in whips. And both parties recognize that the party in control has much to to toward the 1954 gubernatorial election, and everything hinges on the man- ner in which the session opening tomorrow is conducted.
