E VELOPER Patience is one of the many well known virtues of mankind Pa Bence Is the “parent virtue” of such sterling characteristics as faith, courage, kindness, amiability and so forth Probably no better illustra non of the good basic quality and nen viiy of patience can he given than that of the "mother love.” Impatience, of course, has made good history in the annals of discovery and invention. George Washington, for example, was impatient with British rule and domination; Henry- Ford rightly figured that people were impatient with the inadequacies of “old Dobbin” as a means of convevam e Patience, however, has scored more victories than It* opposltp. The problems of Detroit such a* inadequate housing facilities and public utilities demand the exercise of patience hv the populace The same element* which have made IVtroit the "wonder city” will likewise sus tain the city and solve these problem- Furthermore, Intruder* arc being well remunerated. In the form of the present prosperity, for their patience Plans Progress tp Extend Gas, Water and Sewers to Detroit’s Recently Annexed Territories All facilities will be furnished in the annexed territory of Detroit during the present year to enable home building activities to pro gress at a rate greater than ever before, according to the announce ments recently issued by the city engineer’s pflloe, the board of w a ter commissioners and the 1s t roil City Gas company. While housing congestion un doubtedly Is the most important issue before the city, it Is general ly recognized that the same rondi lion affects to a proportionate d< groe the industrial life of the city In the first place, the proper hon* Ing of labor Is one of the vital in ferpnts of every industry, and it I llkewise a fact flint Inadequate fa cllitles also retard industrial d»- velopment as well as home huild ing activities. There are many sections of the city which could have been dev el oped along Industrial lines within ret ent years If the needed facilities such as sewer, water anil transpor tat inn could have been procured This condition was brought to a climax lasi year In thp form of ex- EVIL STORIES OF MOTHER-IN-LAW CAUSE COMPLAINT Mrs. Madeline heehnldt shrank with embarrasamen Mondaj morn ing In Judge Ijimbv ci>ttrt when her Mtomey forced her to tell of her mother-in la*'*'aJlogtMl pent hant for suggestive stone* in her suit for divorce .utainsi Clarence Seebaldt ‘'Clarence's mother used to tell Hones that embarrassed me,” raid Mrs. 8«-e>haldt. “What were the Hones’" nsked the judge.

OETROIT TIMES Ire me housing congestion. Asa re suit, there has been conceited ef foi t on the part of the city admin istration and many of the utility • ompanies io effect a remedy for (hi situation The people have been looking to the newly annexed territory as the -o'ution of the housing congestion since ihe districts offer great build ing opportunities. The main ole .-fade has been the inadequate sup ply of water and sewer facilities. Probably nothing has occurred in Detroit in recent years to denote more clearly the positive forward stride- that are being made toward a ‘bigger and better Detroit” than the announcement of City Engineer Mi.bhell that 44 miles of sewer lin* s would be laid in the new ter ritory in I!G7. anil that all demands would b«- coped with, the statement I-. City Water Hupt T A T.etaen that 1 ; miles of water mains, con tiiuting an adequate service, would h. installed in th«* district and the si.t sequent announcement by the letroll Uity Gas company that hII 'egitinmte demands for gas would be taken care of in the present y ear.
