Camp Jackson, jj S C. manager responsible (Continued from Page One) ; and the suggestion of a system of ?government which promises to elimi nate that fat tor and substitutes met hods of business, readily commends ' itself to public favor. J So' gr-cat is the dignity of busi , ness in America, and so universal the ' respect for the efficiency of the forms ' of organization that have built up big business in America, that the plan will have a strong appeal to those who arc looking for substantial re turns in community fcetterme.vt. Study the chart cf the American Business Plan, and compare it with the CouT.c.'l Manager Plan. If ycu hav'nt a copy of the chart any mem- j ber of the Citizens Committee will! oee that ycu get one. Note the similarity of the plans: Stockholders are the tax-payers. Board of Directors is the Council. General Manager is the City Manager. Departments under the City-AIan ager are organized and directed identically like they are under the General-Manager of a private Cor poration. The Council-Manager Plan being founded on business principles, could exist by following bus;nes-; meth od;; it cculd r.ot opera.*.' if politics were considered. Progressive cities all I'over the country arc adopting this system and deriving great benefits. It is at least worthy of the desp con sideration and proper analysis. This plan promises simplicity an:' business methods and contains many benefits for these who pay the ex penses of operation of the City Gov ernment. Even the most violent cp poncnts of this plan, admit that the city's financial affairs arc in bad shape, and the present system has failed. If Alexandria adopts this new plan, it will be because the citizens and tax payers realize that the old system has faile'd, and that they believe that a ?ysfcOm founded on ordinary, simple, everyday 'business principles will save money and give them fair returns for their investment in taxes. The Citizens Committee has sub mitted this plan as a business plan and is confident that in visv of the plan being so simple, the voters and taxpayers will have no trouble analyz ing the .preposition, and expressing their decision at the poils, when th _? circiicn is called. if their are any details about th:. ;-'.an that you don't understand, :-er ? your questions to the Citizens Com mittee, who will bo glad to furnish arv information they have on the subject. i;ootlk<;<;&i;.s* c;kmus Display (-rirat Injreuuily Carryinu <!n I'V:rl>idtk'n Trade in I'ila.\icants ?
