OUR ONE BEST WISH
The Herald is optimistic for the
future of this good old town and
hopes for many good things in the
year to come But if it could reach
into the bag of good fortune and pull
out the very best1 prize for < the town
possible to obtain in the coming
twelve months It would readily select
good streets and sidewalks as the
thing of material worth most to be
desired But these improvements are
not to he obtained from bags of good
fortune or through wishing They
are the result of intelligent effort
The problem seems simple enough if
it could only be worked out With
the present outlay of salaries spent
In a years time for street direction a
competent civil engineer and street
builder could be employed to give all
of his time and knowledge to this
task And that is the kind of jaan a
private corporation would employ to
look after such work The citys busi
ness shouldbe managed in identically
the same way This is intended as
no criticism on any man personally
but is a simple truth based on the
principle that if you want a thing done
right you must get a man who knows
how
It will be hard to convince some
seven hundred and eleventyeleven
children that today Is the shortest day
in the year
Help to make Christmas a time or
great joy for all of the children in
Palestine If you know of a little tot
whose Santa Claus is away get busy
It is a doubleriveted cinch that
