   Manitowoc Sun Messenger (Newspaper) - May 5, 1939, Manitowoc, Wisconsin                                tf.000 Guaranteed CirculaH on. THE v;,;i,>,v,-i,'i^ A copy in a/mo�# every MoMriUnjooe Telephone No. 17 MANITOWOC -V- "y^i^ -y- 813-817 Chicago Street / iS U JN - MESSENGER VOL. VII._No. 37. MANITOWOC, WISCONSIN GO-ZIP iwuiR a recording of those things t\\n\ j^o ppmg as folks talk. And a tew vagrant thoughts. When the votes were counted George Kiel had been reelected chairman of the county board by a safe margin and another feud was relegated to the shelf for at least a year.    -o- Gosh they are going to erect a new telephone exchange! right at the rear of our plant but they are going to change to a dial system, so there. � o The greatest victory in life is the conquest of worry. The greatest discovery a man can make is how to escape envy and hate. -o- Life is a mirror: if you frown at it, it frowns back, if you smile it returns the greeting. o We don't list Old Diz as a Cub hope. Not after what he did Monday. Both of the great world's fairs are now operating. Take your choice or see both of them, if you want something to brag about. o- Sometimes we wonder if the announcer wouldn't sound more convincing if he actually believed what he is saying. --o- Our own hunch is that it is bad to have too much of anything, including red heads. � o The minister is paid to tell the lay man but sometimes the lay man gets {he notion he can tell the ministers, and does it without being paid, o 'Sfunny what excuses some people can find for disliking persons. If you ask us that daylight savings stuff J-s-a pain in the neck for the sections that don't have it. -o- No one even mentioned any pros-.-pect_for_the-_city_ attorney's-job -last Monday night. o Live for something, do good and leave behind you a virtue that the storms of time can never destroy. -o- We will have our own MAY Day in this city on Sundav the 21st. Do your bit. -o- We have a young lady in this town that set a world's record by just going round and round-and backwards at that. -_o-- Major A. J. Shimek, M.D., both a good soldier and a good medic, answered the final roll call and a lot of young athletes lost a better friend than most of them realize. --o- Now that the airport manager has returned we expected to hear a whole flock of questions asked and answered but the battery seems to be dead. -0- Some people get terribly nervous when they are asked direct, personal questions. Cold beans was a regular although ' ^ot very popular dish in this city last week. Our do nothing congress seems to be afraid that it \v\\\ spoil its record and yet gets a lot of publicity for doing nothing. - o- Gosh, because a drunk failed to drive into the river at Two Rivers instead of having to drag: him out of the river they dragged him into court and fined him |100 and the costs. Some radio announcers must have queer ideas on how to adjust differences with the boss. o The city council elected an additional janitor for the city hall last Monday and one of the candidates out of the field of six submitted as approved by the committee collected eight votes on the first ballot. You write your own ticket on that one. o THE SAME THING "The last time I was in camp," said Private Jimson, "the temperature on three successive nights dropped to zero." "That's nothing," said an old soldier; "that's nothing." "What's nothing?" asked Jimson, indignantly. "Zero!" replied the old soldier, as he made for the door. Magistrate: So you claim you robbed that grrocery store because you were starving. Why didn't you take something to eat instead of looting the cash register? Prisoner: I'm a proud man, your honor, and I always make it a rule to pay for my food. We really had expected the local unions to do a bit more of advertising, or announcing or whatever you may call it but we admit that we are just as well satisfied as is. o   � Mary Bimbo, Queen of the Gypsies, can't get back here now before 1944 and by that time the local officers will have forgotten they want her to visit here. --o Some people can be mean even when they laugh. A New York law forbids anyone to kill a rabbit or a bird in a cemetery-.---------..... We'll lay you odds that Wanek did NOT vote for Kiel in that county board election Tuesday. Form good habits-they're just as hard to break as bad ones. Tin You? I bought a wooden whistle but it wooden whistle; So I bought a steel whistle. But steel it wooden whistle; So I bought a lead whistle. But steel they wooden lead me whistle; So I bought a tin whistle And now-I tin whistle. (Isn't that terrible?) -0- Well Col. O'Donnell, how about it? The weary, disillusioned and restless try to buy happiness in bulk. o They have Jimmy Lynch at the New York World's fair as a feature attraction. County fair stuff. We are against people who are against everything. --o-- Most of the poor seem to keep healthy at no expense. --o-- We wonder whether it is going to take as long to get an elevator into the city hall as it did to get one into the court house. That ends the first consigrnment for May. Well he hack next week, we hope, we hope. City Council Seeks Power-Name New RecreationDirector By a vote of eleven to three the city council last Monday night tabled the Klusmeyer resolution which sought to abolish the recreation boanl but the same vote directed the city attorney to prepare an ordinance which would leave the final choice of the director in the hands of the aldermen, giving the recreation board only the power to submit recommendations. The action, however, would have to be confirmed later by the passage of the ordinance. Board Resigns The recreation board on Wednesday filed its resignation with the mayor and common council, citing that under the proposed change it would practically exist in name only, merely being an errand running body for the council. It stated that it had proceeded to do what it deemed best for the recreation department and that the board and mayor and council do not agree on the qualifications for the job of director. The letter is si!gned by Dr. L. D. Thompson, chairman, Dr. O. J. Wilda and Frank Hrabik, the latter representing the board of vocational education. Major Schmidt, representing the school board, resigned several weeks ago. Alderman Olsen is the city council member. There was considerable argument over the situation with the fight centering largely on the selection of a home man for the position of the director and the question of the city council delegating powers. Klusnieyer held that if the council was not big enough to shoulder the /esponsibility it should be left to a vote of the people. The city attorney was directed to take the necessary steps to defend the $00,000 damage action which resulted from the six.drQvmingS-in -the acci- dent at the 21 st St. bridge. The Icigal summons were served on city offi cials. Three additional claims for back salary were filed, Mrs. Sylvia Kerscher I'assenbacli, James White and Dr. Earl Stangel. The council order petitions with 740 .signitures asking a reconsideration of the vote on the mayor's choice for city attorney was ordered placed on file. The county was assured their would be plenty of paving bricks to complete the exposition-armory building at the fair grounds. A movement was started for the rebuilding of the docks along the city owned property on Commercial street to provide facilities for yachts and to create a rest spot. It will be made a WPA project, if it is undertaken. The council voted $40 toward the $175 needed to send a representative to the local Workers Alliance to a Work Congress at Washington, D. C. Roy Palmer, city, was chosen as the delegate for the 8th congressional district. The city will replace 29 dead trees along Waldo boulevard and will also replace several elms with maples. The city clerk wa.s authorized to advertise for bids for the tires which will be needed on the motor vehicles in the various departments. The Checker Cab company made application for licenses for 12 cabs. Junias Pleuss petitioned for im-pxovements in the Westlawn addition. The protest of Charles McDonner on zoning regulations was ordered turned over to the city planning commission. The city was advised it was not liable in a claim of $27 filed by Wen> cil Svveikar for injuries. The relief bill for April was given at $10,275 with the case load 309, a reduction from the month before. The board of education was allowed $600 for the operation of the Lincoln and Wilson school swimming pools during the summer. A proposal to install an elevator in the city hall was rejected. The committee was directed to seek federal and state aid in the Washington street widening project and the new route to the carferry slips. Agreement was reached with the railway company for a temporary route to the lake front to make possible the construction of the sewage disposal plant. The abstract of title to the property sold to the Immanual Lutheian congregation will have to be cleared in the courts and the city attorney was directed to take the necessary steps. The Copper Boiler Works asked for the right to install hot water systems. The plan to reroute truck traffic will be presented at the next regular meeting of the council. The aldermen voted to cooperate on the Citizenship Day plans but did not take action on a retiuest to provide a float. Two more jobs on the sewage disposal plant sewer system will be advertised. The band stand at Union park will be replaced with a new stand and a band shell may be erected if all conditions are favorable. The clerk will advertise for nine summer band concerts. Six candidates were submitted for the janitor position at the city hall and Mike Kaminski was elected on the first ballot with eight votes to six scattered. Membership in the National Safety Council was renewed. A mass routine business and bills was disposed of. All members were present. mm Telephone Co.
