WHERE WE LIVE
The town In which we live is
the best or the worst place for
us according to what we make
it ourselves. We can be happier
in Springfield than in any other
town if we make up our minds
to make it so. How about our
homes. Are they homes or just
places to live in until something
else comes along that might
make us better off, so that we
can have that fine home we have
been planning on so long.
A house does not have to be
large and expensive on a big lot
to make a fine home. It can just
be a small humble cottage and
be the finest home ever. Just
think what a few flowers, less
"weeds, a few climbing vines, a
nice lawn, a new coat of paint,
all of the palling8 in place on the
fence with a few shade trees
around, will do for the appear
ance of a place. It does not cost
veiy much to have these things.

things started, but, is it not

A FINE LEGISLATIVE RECORD

two sides, the executlvo and the legis
