Sixteenth street, died at ' the St. Joseph hospital. j Sirloin steak, 3D cents a pound. Cream clicp.se, 49 cents a pound. President Truman submitted to i Congress today tho first balanced federal budget since the 1830 de' prcsstion, with a stem warning ; against tax reduction at this time. 1 Improved Street Lighting Needed Many residents of Logansport have suggested that One of the most valuable improvements which could be made in this city would be the moderization and exen- sion of our present street lighting system, Poor street lighting, or a complete lack of it such as we have in many sections, reflects a poor impression of the city as a whole, and in addition has been found to be directely connected to the crime ratio of a given neighborhood. Where a district or neighborhood is well lighted, robberies, attacks and other forms of crime are few in number. Recognizing the need for a highly improved street lighting system, one big manufacturer, the General Electric Co., has developed and marketed its first post-war street lighting product—the suburban luminaire. This light is reputed to be far superior to anything now in use. Other manufacturers also have developed highly improved and modern street lights. The improvement in Logansport could undoubtedly be effected over a period of time without a burdensome expense. Present limp posts in most sections need not be replaced, but do need new type light. And new installations should be made in all neighborhoods where there is no street lighting. The entire problem of street lighting is one which the citizens offer to the new city administration for thorough consideration-in its plan for a better, greater Logansport. Ten Yean Ago George W. Richardson, 92, passed away this morning at the Franklin Masonic honia. With all of tlie brick work and plastering completed, the new building which will house the local branch of the Indiana Associated Telephone corporation will be ready for tho installation of all equipment beginning February 1.
