MAYOR HARRISON CAN'T SEE
Mayor Harrison is against giving
aldermen four-year terms. He an
nounced that much last night.
"I don't believe it advisable for the
aldermanic term to be extended, to
four years," said the mayor, "unless
certain restrictions are placed in the
hands' of the voters. One of these
would be ttfe recall. Personally, I'm
going to vote against the proposition.
"In the case of some aldermen, a
longer term would be a good thing;
in the case of others, it would be a
bad thing. If the four-year term Is
granted the people should have the
recall in. their hands.
"It might be well to limit the num
ber of aldermen to thirty-five, if the
four-year term was adopted."

effects and the flare at the ankles, all
of which are in absolute contradis
tinction to the present figure line.
