CITIZENS DESIRE PROTECTION
The city council may rest as
sured that the citizens of Corval
lis will not object to a fair ex
penditure for the improvement
Of the fire department. The
citizens of Corvallis have reached
that place where they would like
to see everything that is done,
done well' Corvallis wants the
substantial, not the slip-shod,
not the make-shift. Every vdte
taken the past year has- demon
strated that the people have con
fidence in the future of this city
and that they prefer to leave off

want that service. The public is
concerned only with the neces
sity of making adequate prepara
tion to save the business building
and home from-destruction by
fire. It is the council's business
to work out the best plan possi
ble, considering the amount of
money that can be devoted to
such 'a purpose. The public will
be glad to stand a small extra
tax to provide a fund sufficient
to meet the need. The point is
