The council last week look action to officially designate it a city via an ordinance. A town becomes a city when the population reaches 2,000 or more. We were hoping that Britt might be "Iowa's first city" but a check' of the census report shows that Leon is 2,004, Pocahontqs 2,011, Corning 2,041 and West Liberty shares fourth position with Britt at 2,042* The designation as a city should have some effect psychologically, upon the citizenry and we hope it will be reflected at Hallowe'en this Oci tober. The ravaging that Britt has gone through on past Hallowe'en should not be tolerated by a city. The squads, of teenagers that have roamed the streets, harassing motorists, destroying property, and blocking streets should be a thing of the past, tolerated only by "towns." (Many towns do not allow these activities). The city fathers received enough unfavorable comments last year about the havoc on Hallowe'en that there should be no hesitation in taking action to have a quiet city com,e AH Hallow's Eve. "" .
