This is the third round of the stirring debate between
Jack Hall and Hal Armstrong, Star reporters, on the Erick
son 3-cent measure.
If you are tired of reading complexing and conflicting
statistics on the railway problem, follow this debate. The
writers are attempting to reduce the problem to its simple,
fundamental, human equation.
They're off!

When a man Id opposed to somf
thine he has no reason to oppose, he
usually attacks It with hitch ex
ploitive bomluist.
Hence, my opponent, Jack Hall,
secretly a believer in 8-cent farv, has
nothing to say against It. So ho
says as much. In several hundred
words a day of boom boom bunk.
He says:
"Krlckson Is trying to sell the city
a gold brick."
You see, Mr. Hall has t»rom» con

sold the city the street railway sys
