Mr. Kleinhans has bmi traveling the southern portion of tho statn but has been assigned to the southeastern part to rthe roniinj; year. He will niake regular trips to this city in the future. As a result of thi' insiiector's first survey of local conditions last night, two business places were ordered closed until they were scrubbed out. The scrubbing was done late in the evening and the houses were open as usual this morning. "I'ni on the job to enforce the law." says Mr. Kleinhans. "and I shall do that without fear or favor. I could have started prosr-cutions here but It is. not our purpose to be arbitrary about the law in cases wiien* we lind that it is siiv.ply a case of neuleiM and not defiance. I simply told the persons whose places 1 ihspectwl last cicning that I could not pass ihrni and that they must scn?b out before they reopened. Tliat was sufllcirnt.
