Engineers who have been appraising our national needs figure that the bill will rim over three billion dollars for the country as a whole And that's just for physical equipment and installations — that's just for the things which make up a water supply system. and What about the men who make these things function? How much should we pay for their knowledge, (heir experience , above all, (heir unceasing vigilance? -'astng vigi water works Everything about a water works involves big money except Ihe remuneration of the men responsible, for its dependable operation. Perhaps no other enterprise in America puts more solemn responsibilities upon men and pays them less for accepting them. Our people have been fortunate lhal so many able and conscientious men have been willing in accept these responsibilities in (he* face of Ihe low financial rewards their services command.
