of authority and a utilization of the principle of rep resentative government Thus it was that the aldermanic council was born In its most common form the aldermanic council was made up in this manner An alderman from each ward 2 aldermen at large and a mayor elected by comr munitywide vote Oflen if not always in the practical working out of things business of the al dermanic council became a game of logrolling and backscratching Each alderman was imbued with the idea of getting all he could for his ward and the way tp do state this was to trade votes with other ay aldermen who had the same gen

inefficiency No always but usually those attracted to politics by the commission gov ernment are quite ordinary men seeking a better job than their regular bread winning pursuit Personal popularity or need of a job usually is the controlling ele ment in the election There is no guarantee under such a plan that the municipal job calling for spe cific ability and training will be filled by a person
