It's A N uisance, But What To Do
Mayor Conlry Lanham and Die members of
the city council are laced with an embarrassing
ftuation which, far from bcinp solved, appears
to be growing worbe by the day. It is with rela
tion to the disposal of garbage, a matter with
which the present administration and previous
councils have struggled for a number of years.
In the present situation it is not so much a
matter of having a place for disKsal of the town's
refuse; it is a matter of getting the best use out
of the property owned by the ci;y for that purpose.
The location of the tract is such that it is not
acceptable to residents of the neighborhood and
in recent years this has led to more or less friction.
In all justice, no censure is due the neighbors
for their dislike of the dump yard. On the other
hand, the city has a right to use the property and,
according to tjie opinion of attorneys present at
Monday night's session of the council, the right
extends to the roadway leading to the property.
Closing of this roadway in recent weeks has led to
friction between the city and one of the neighbors.
At the same time it has handicapped garbage dis
posal, causing dissatisfaction with the service and
placing the garbage collector in an unfair light.
It is an unpleasant situation and one which the
city council would like to remedy. A canvass has
been made in search of a new location but as yet
nothing has been found that can be obtained for
a price within the city's reach, or that could be
developed satisfactorily. This means that the
present site will have to be used until a suitable
tract can be found. It is not possible to dispose
of garbage here and there. A suitable pi ice has
to be fixed and that will require some time even
after a site is acquired.
At the time the dump ground was put into
operation no one could foresee the eventual
growth of the town and the large volume of waste
the tract is required to handle. It might have
been possible at that time to have acquired an
acre or two more which would have forestalled
the present situation. As it is. the city has the
ground, it has been used since the early '20's and
from present indications it may have to be used
several years longer before a change can be made.
Nagging and placing obstructions will not solve
the problem. That only leads to greater misun
derstanding. Just Who's Doing Too Well?
A current issue of one of the numerous maga
azines coming to the editorial desk contained this
paragraph: 'The labor press is publishing names
of corporation officers who receive more than $75,
000 a year. The corporation executives are sens
itive about it but not sensitive enough to have
their salaries cut below $75,000 where they will
not be exposed to the public glare."
On another page is an article entitled "The
Unions Own a Chunk of Washington," which re
veals tne growth of the unions in recent years
and their descent upon the national capital where ither
they are as deeply intrenched near official circles Pnding a few days there .visiting

they own their own swank buildings. They act

unions hold other commercial property, concealed

No one will deny the right of the unions to own
their own buildings and strengthen their position,
but they should also scan the payrolls of some of
their executives when turning the spotlight of

growing wild in western Asia and
temperate Europe thousands of

back, historians show, our an

It is said that Cato, in the third
century B. C, knew seven differ

36 different kinds.
The U. S. Department of Agri
