If anyone needed n demonstration
of what could be done by united ac
tion, he certainly hod his wish grant
ed in the matter of tho Elks Conven
tion. It was a pleasure a delight,
and, yet, with It all there walked
with It, hand and h3nd. one thing
that robbed it of the full enjoyment
one should feel over the success at
tained and tho benefits gained for
tho city. That one thing was the re
gret that tbe same united support is
not given to all things undertaken for
the benefit of the city. What couldn't
Klamath Falls accomplish If we all
worked to one end? Is It not possible
for us to change the order of things
and bring some life into the develop
ment of the city and county? Can't
we all Join hands for one common
which to accomplish tho t.isk. If the
'indications amount to uiytliliu the
warning is goiug to pass unheeded
and it will be up to tho fire chief to
i demonstrate whether ho la the right
man in the right place or not. If he
will pursue a straight course and ar
rest every man, without further de
lay or hesitation or consideration or
exception or partiality, who has fail
ed to clean up, then ho may expect
and will receive the support of pun
llc opinion. Ho will receive the re
spect and support of the very men
who Ignoied his instruction. On the
other hand. If he starts out again by
issuing another warning, then he may
expect to have handed to him Just the
same consideration that has been
handed to tho police force in the
matter of enforcing tho muffler ordi

time to glance into the future ani
prepare for meeting the emergencies
that are just now appearing on the
horizon. Men who formerly were ac
tive in progressive moves have fallen
to the rear, for they tired of being

Let us complete the organization
of the Commercial Club. Let us make
it a' live organization, backed by iuf

mention of the word money. Yet
these very men are dally paying out
