MARCH 17. 1921 No. 11 Put Them To Work While attending court in Tracy last week, I overheard a man say to a justice of the peace, "Make the county jail a 'work house. There are four big negroes there for whom the county is paying seventy-five cents a day each for board, and nothing is required of them. They are wax iug fat at the expense of the tax payers. If you will make it a work house these men can be worked on the roads." It is riot often you hear an official begging for authority or opportunity to help the public. The speaker was Mr. Campbell. In these days of high taxes and expensive living it is certainly a travesty of the county govern ment to, support able bodied prisoners in idleness. Of course it has been done that way hereto fore, but whv not improve on "heretofore" Make it a work house. Put them to work.
