More manpower is «- sentiel to enforce the laws, operate city equipment an* to assist in maintenance of city property. And naturally, as a city extend* its corporate limits, more equipment must be purchased to repair and maintain street*, sewers and guttera in the new sections of Bay-' ' town. Using the drainage problem an « ca*e in point, it i* pointed out that the city has spent some J202,- 762 on storm sewers eince 194-9. While the drainage problem of Baytown was somewhat improved, the need for more adequate drainage still exists. The terrestrial otructure of the locale is no fault of the present or past city administration, but It does pose an ever existing problem that demands cool heeds for a lolutton. Not only does the Inadequate drainage eystem of the city present a possible health problem, but it detracts from real estate value. This is only one of the many problems that face the men you elect to your city council, and it is your duty to yoruself and your neighbor, to cast a ballot for the man you consider most qualified toseek the solution. The tempo of the additional improvements program and the methods of financing will be epurred in the near future, and it ig these same men you elect who will chart the course of the entire program. What do you, the citizens of Baytown, want Included in the program? How do you want it financed? How much should bt spent on each item? There are only a few of the questions which your city council will have to answer when the project is put into action, and your answer to the questions are voiced by the proxy votes of your councilmen. There may toe numerous Bay- tonians who will say to themselves, "I can't vote, because there is no election of a councilman for my precinct this year' 1 and there may bo some who will say, "there's no use in my voting, because there is only one contested! race, and there will be enough votes cast without mine." The thinking of the former group I« erroneous because the councilmen are elected on an at-Iarge- basis, and every qualified voter in the corporate limits of Baytown is eligible to vote, regardless of whether the position on the council, which represents his resident district is open. And the train of thought of the 'alter group reflects a complete lack ot political interest and civic pride that may well retard th» progress of any city. The time required to vote in negligible, and the importance of any city election in a progressive city is paramount The citizens of Baytown who take an active, part Jn the government of the city, and have a detp- rootcd pride in its progress, urge you to cast your ballots Tuesday and contribute to the record vote that would Irrefutably reflect the cooperation the city officials may expect during the corning period of prof re»», Although only onft-fourth of Um United States population live in the Northeaster stales, tiiey receive nearly half of all lamb ami mutton , shipped.
