CLEVELAND FINDS CITY MANAGER IS VALUABLE ASSET Auto Club Man Claims New Government Form Worth $1,000,000 Annually. Bv Times Soecial CLEVELAND, Ohio, June 11.— The city manager form of Govern ment is an annual asset of $1,000,- 000 to Cleveland citizens, in the opinion of Fred H. Caley, chairman of the committee which put over the recent $10,000,000 bond issue campaign for civic improvements in the Ohio city. The business type of municipal administration was inaugurated in Cleveland Jan. 1, 1924, following the election of councilmen the previous November. William R. Hopkins, at torney, identified with some of the community’s largets enterprises, notably the Belt Line Railway, was selected as first city manager and still holds the post. Cleveland was one of the first large cities to adopt the new form. “We should have had it ten years wgo,” said Caley, secretary of the Cleveland Automobile Club, and an enthusiastic city manager form ad vocate. Personnel Improved ‘The new type of government has worked very satisfactorily in Cleve land, and brought about a big*im provement in the personnel of city administration. As far as city gov enment is concerned, it has elim inated corruption. The politicians were forced to get on the band wagon and fall in line with the gen eral program of things. “Mark Hanna once said the best I committee is a committee of three, with two dead members. That is | the point to the city manager plan I —it has individual resposnbility from the city manager himself down to the lowest executive. “The well known lack of interest among the more substantial type of residents is passing. Folks have for gotten the ‘why bother to vote’ idea and take an interest in what is go-, ing on because their confidence has been restored.” Caley paid high complimen to the administration of Hopkins as the head of the city corporation. Citizens voted for the $10,000,000 bond issue for civic improvements i because they knew it would (not be spent by the old-time politicians, Ca ley asserted. The program includes improvement of streets, sewers, parks, erection of 330 additional traf fic signs, a large appropriation for EXTRA SPECIAL! ant^some - i ewe i i Illinois Sterling .
