We're anxious about the morals of our city and our chief [ of police has much to do with that, i Perhaps a new conscience is growi ing up here?a new concern about t morality. The leaders of both pollti cal parties, too, are shrewd enough ' to know that much centers on the fu ture police department, much ttyat t will swing politics one way or the 1 other.

Then we can hope for better things than we have had in the past. " "Fairmont owes ?n obligation to its new officials and must share the responsibilities of ctiy administration. It isn't possible for any city to turn over its affairs to four men. You can not go about your buBness and say, "that is his Job" as long as you are a beneficiary of the life of this community. It is right that these four men shall have your hearty co-operation and that you shall give them courage by letting them know you are behind them?that you are back of every effort to make Fairmont safe for boys and girls. No man can be put at the head of an undertaking and be ex3 pected to do all there is to do. These 5 four men are only human, they are not infallible and they will make mis" takes. Let the man who has never " made a mistake cast the first stone. s When a healthy public opinl(on is necessary on any issue, then make I your contribution, citizens. Thesd four men will Have a task If they try to go against public opinion, j Let all the churches help. The should all be a source of inspiration to these four. Dr. Broomfield said he felt a care_ ul overBieht over the city (affairs ; /or the yeara to come was necessary, even though he had confidence In the men in charge. "When the eye ol the boss Is on you, better work is done?you're less liable to do anything questionable," said Dr. Broomfield. [ The boss consttiuted the people of Fairmont. This careful scrutiny . should not be attributed to anything but the public's desire to stimulate k and encourage the big four. There , were two factions who would know ,' every move and recognize It's import ?the Republican and Democratic j leaders. Unless the rest of the city kept a close eye open, something " would surely be missed and if the . eyes had been kept shut, then It was , policy to keep mouth shut also when j things go wrong. "As pastor of this . church," exclaimed Rev. Broomfield, a "ran going to keep my eye across the street and I'm in a good position to r do so." "Citizens, make these four men beneficiaries of your constructive crit r lcism. It Is one thing to find fault 3 and another to provide something to r take it's place. Anybody can tear . down but It takes a man worth while f to build up. These four men will be glad to have you come and give your ideas to them. Just find your way to the cltv hall and talk kindly and , you will be recolved kindly.

During the above discourse the new mayor sat In the back of the -church with arms folded, leaning slightly back In his seat. When compliments grew especially numerous, he smiled. Mayor Conaway listened attentively to all th? suggestions and advise heaped upon bim and appeared quite comfortable under the weight of his new title. | Rev. Broomfleld spoke of the city's duties in equal frequency with the du-l ties of the new officials. He said, as He had repeated before, all Fairmont needed was two Democrats and two Republicans you couldn't Ibuy. But around these two Democrats revolve the whole Democratic party and around the two Republican leaders revolve the Republican party. Not all Democrats and not all Republicans are what they ought to be. Both win line up to prepare for positions in Fairmont. They've been doing it all along What we want to do is to serve notice on both factions that the ctiy stands for its city affairs managed without political significance only as far as the right man does the job in the best manner. Only as to genuine worth will a particular man stand out. If Fairmont citizens will share the dresponsiibllity each shall have his share in rooting out evil here. Citizens should be ready and willing to give information when necessary as to gambling Joints and houses of ill fame. Citizens by far outnumber any group of politicians. This is your system of defense to be built around these four men. With this aid, and protection it will grow a habit to do rgiht and we'll have no selfish, impure party politics in our midst to mpede prgTess. The church life will be more inspiring when we have a healthy condition of morals in the ctiy and civ ic righteousness will do much to make this city what it ought to be. Rev. Broomfield said he had been enjoying the remarks made recently regardnlg his having the new mayor in his congregation. He said he felt a tremendous responsibility in the matter. He felt that Jesus was coming Into his own at last and he looked for great things to happen in this new administration. TEN TEARS BEHIND The times?Does that strike you?
