LOCAL SUFFRAGE
BACKED Of GROUP
Friendship Citizens’ Associ
ation Also Approves Plan
for Representation.
A plea for local suffrage and na
tional representation for the District
was made last night in a resolution
passed by the Friendship Citizens’
Association.
The resolution asked that District
residents be given the power to elect
a representative to Congress the same
as the States, and that they also be
given authority to select local mu
nicipal office holders. This action was
taken following a debate at the last
association meeting at which both
sides of the subject were presented.
Speaking on the matter at last night’s
meeting, Samuel J. Flickinger, asso
ciation president, said that “it is time
we were given a stake and voice in
local affairs, and it is only right that
we be given enough representation at
the Capitol to not only make our needs
known but to give our requests
weight.”
Another resolution passed by the as
sociation condemned the service given
by the refuse department, and asked
for better and more frequent collec
tions of trash, garbage and ashes.
This resolution also asked that alleys
be kept cleaner.
A committee was appointed to make
plans for the annual Christmas cele
bration of the association. Mr. Flick
inger announced that the organiza
tion would follow the custom estab
lished last year by award prizes for
' * ' 8S38&WS
the best decorated homes and business
establishments in the neighborhood.
Plans also were made to take part
in the celebration of the tenth anni
versary of the Tenley branch library,
which will take place tonight in the
library building at Wisconsin avenue
and Albemarle street N.W.
