The County Commissioners, of

saders against extravagance in pub
lic expenditures,

system of government, and claimed
that in SO years the expenses of the
county had increased nearly five-fold
from $183,207.72 to over $850,000.
Speaking of the mileage collected
by the commissioners, he said the lust
auditor's report showed that $7,250.80
had be n paid them. He claimed that
the lav allowed the dommissloners 10
cents i>#r mlje from their homes t;>
the courthouse and that after they ar
rived there they were only entitled to
actual expenses, If they went any
where 'doe on public business.
Mr. Etchison also attacked the sys
tem of bookkeeping ami-dcclared the
county niidltors had not been able to
strike a trial balance, and dial In bis
opinion the system was such that it
had never been possible to take a
trial balance.
The nounty probation officer, Miss

rlsm also. Mr. Etchison said the hii
ditor’s renort showed Unit the county

he said; “I hone, gentlemen, tills com
ing year you will pay ne more to the
schools of Frederick county not a
single itollsr more than you arc re
quired ifo do by law.” '

Why Telephone Employes Want.
to Give Good Service
WHY is it,” asked a telephone subscriber, "that
telephone employees in general are so interested
t in their work and arc so anxious to give good
service to’the public V
, The answer is: loyally to the public, to the Com- j!
pany and lo themselves. The telephone employees look
upon their w6rk as a'public duty; they take pride in giv
ing the best that is in them. They feel a sense of loyalty
to the company because they are a part of the organiza
tion which constitutes the Company and because many
of them have made telephone service their life work.
Then, too, many of ihcm arc partners in the- business.
More than 100,000 employees of the Bell System
own telephone stock or an: paying for it on the monthly * 1
, payment plan, from their wages os earned. Many of
these employees live in Maryland and help lo give you
telephone service. The par value of the stock owned or
being paid for by these employees in Maryland amounts
to $671,200.
Employers who have voluntarily invested their 1
savings and earnings in the business in which they are
engaged must have confidence in it and will do their
utmost to make it a success.
