Civic Patience Needed
"While it ia necessary to.be aggres
sive It -is absolutely imperative to be
patient," said Mr. Woodruff. "Don't
expect results too soon; they affect too
many people. A sudden burst of pub
lic opinion Is too often insincere. The

In speaking of the rapid strides
•which municipal reform has been tak
ing,in the last few years, Mr. Wood
ruff declared that it was nothing more
than the natural outgrowth of the in
creasing population of business centers
and conscious demand* 'of citizens for
more . advanced ideas. -V' '
"According to the last consuls 33 per
cent of the population -of } the* United
States is living directly under munici
pal government and half as many more
under, its . Influence," ' he .-., said. "Tc

Growth of League Work
"A few years ago a local municipal
organization, j composed of men whe
worked for the benefit of the govern

practically unknown. Today we have
in » this country 750 such organizations.
"The exposure of great municipal
graft in the last few years is not indi
cative of greater corruption, but, on
the other hand, it shows that the people
are' awakening to the fact that such
things which were taken for granted a
few years ago can now be readily and
advantageously dispensed with."
Mr. Woodruff will speak at Venice
tomorrow afternoon, after which he
■will go to Portland.

of Warning Placards
In the verdict rendered by a cor

the board of . health order that notices
bo placed in bathrooms where instan
taneous water heaters are being used.

in the air and the , presence of the
deadly carbonic acid gas thrown off.
by the heater, the jury considered that
ie is time for the health department
to take precautions against any more
fatalities. ' : ,
. Miss,. Murray's.. relatives ihave -been
notified and the body will be taken
back to her home.
