TH U RSD A Y . AUGUST 24. 1010 The greatest error a city or county governm ent can m ake is to let com m ercialized vice and crookedness go u n muzzled. An unrestrained city soon gets beyond control, like a way ward child. It is m uch easier to hold crim e and its kin under check a t the s ta rt th an to a t tem p t to bridle it after it has gained a foothold.

T here are two distinct classes of col lege g ra d u a te s: Those who accept po sitions and those who h u n t jobs. W hen a m an does a fool thing th a t gets him into trouble he is sure to say th a t “ accidents will happen.” C om paratively little work can con vince a m an th a t he needs a rest.
