But. during'the hectic, days of the boom, the pressure on city governments was so light (hut it WHS possible to put up wilh I hat kind of mayor—and with llie kind of KOVUVII- .muiil which iiuch a mayor brings along with him. ' ' . '* » 4 Hard limes changed the picture. Shrinking revumies mid increasing demands on the • public purse suddenly showed us Dial buss rule of the Iradi- tional type is the most expensive luxury in which a city can indulge. The Jimmy Walkers, light as so many feathers, nevertheless were a BLYTHEVCLLE. (ARK.) COUBIER NEffS OUT OUR WAY loud loo heavy .to be carried any longer. That Jimmy Walker is on his uppers today is not important—to anyone except Jimmy himself. The im- pcrlant fact'is that the, Jimmy Walker kjiul of government is alfio on Us uppers. We have been gulling an expensive but valuable objed lesson in municipal affairs. If it leads us lo discard the old, carefree system of turning our city govern incuts over to the nearest boss and Idling him to go the limit, it will be worth all it has cost. —Bruce Gallon.

One day he gets (here ahead of Lima; the traffic officer detailed to the school intersection hasn't arrived. The boy crosses, anyway—and a motor car kills him. Now this sort of tiling is almosl loo common to be. worth mentioning. Yet when you stop lo think about it you reiilix.e, all of a sudden, that it is the tragic product of a situation which is absolutely intolerable. Why we tonlimu; to p»I. up with il— why we don't get up uii our hind legs and put. this traffic juggeramif under control regardless of the cost or the difficulty—is the greatest mystery of the age.
