(SATURDAY,, APRIL 5,1*24. - T^HAMILTOK DAILY NEWS, "HAMILTON, OHIO. O X F O R D lisa Bran U ttM Oxford nprwctiUtlT* of The DaOjr N«wi Phono 7. Cleanup of Village is Urged by Oxford Mayor The following call for clean-up- ta-eek has been Issued by Mayor Powell: With the approval of the village council I call upon the citizens of Oxford to adopt as "clean-up week" the period from April 7 to April 12 inclusively. Should that time be too early for some of the work required, * second period will be named later to complete the program; but we hope that this will not ba necessary. Recently a general interest in this matter has been expressed in tho form at frequent protests against dirty streets and ' alleys, unsightly hack yards, exposed and scattered garbage, etc. This manifestation of interest is both commendable and promising. A few things only can be done by e village .idnimistr.itloi;. The most important n i t t! «e. 1. We wn subject High street, at least, to a thorough cl'-'aning and put it in order. Hitherto tho street crew has been busy with repair work required to make some oilier streets usable. By the time named, the crew will, we hope, be free to glvo attention to High street. When it is once made clean and orderly*, it is doubtful whether, with the funds at our disposal, it can be kept so. Citizens aro invited to help. Work will go farther than words. 2. We cnn improve our'handling of garbage. Citizens are hereby reminded of what many have uppnr- cntly forgotten, namely, that all families, hotels, and restaurants are require,) to provide themselves with covered, fly-proof, receptacles for garbage, and to keep them covered, even when empty. Moreover, it is forbidden to throw garbage on the ground. Thes e regulations, it is needless to say, are important not only for the good appearance but for the sanitary condition of our village. To enforce them effectively the hearty cooperation of the citizens is necessary. Neither the Marshal nor garbage committee can make n dally round of inspection; but citizens can help by reporting any ob- ecrevd neglect o£ the regulations. Public rcsUurants need to toko special care. Garbage should be drained and kept separate from ashes. Garbage onus should not be put out on the street until just before the'garbage wagon calls. Most of the work of cleaning up and keeping clean will have to be done through the initiative of private citizens. Tho following aro some of the things that they can do: 1. They can help create a universal sentiment ae'ninst littering up the streets and parks with scraps oE paper, fruit rinds, etc. Somo individual, or Some club, that values clean and tidy streets might undertake to provide suitable trash receptacles for tho principal streets and employ a boy to "pick up" twice a week. 2. In regard to alleys, other common spaces, and back yards--Individuals can make suitable agreements. By good sense, civility, mutual forbearance and tact, the antagonisms that sometimes develop from such efforts may he avoided, and cleanliness, tidiness and beauty may be promoted. · OXFORD WANT ADS PAINTING and interior decorating.
