Burlington Herald (Newspaper) - May 18, 1950, Burlington, Iowa The by Hunton 2editorial. A search for the truth is the noblest occupation of Man its publication a duty. De Stael. A a a a a a a essay on dog poisoning we Are about to buy a Fence for our Back Yard with the idea of using it to keep our dog within the limits of our property. We re going to buy the Fence for two reasons one to make sure the dog does t tear up half the gardens in the Vicinity and two to make sure no one poisons him. It s unpleasant to be forced to pen up a dog particularly a big dog but conditions Are such that we have no Choice. We Aren t fearful that the owner of a Garden will Poison him because he tramped through it. But there is a very definite danger that someone will Poison him out of sheer malice. Our reasons for thinking so Are supported by the recent wave of dog poisonings in our neighbourhood. Nine dogs when last we heard had been poisoned in the near Vicinity. It is very unlikely that in All nine instances the dogs were poisoned by different people. It Points to one or perhaps two individuals. It s useless of course to go through the routine about heels who Are Low enough to Poison dogs. That has been done too Many times to need repeating. No one can write anything against dog poisoning anyway that would penetrate the thick Skull of a dog poisoner. Because for one thing a dog poisoner is not altogether sane. He is an individual retaliating against dogs in the same Way Small children take out their rage on toys. It is an irrational wholly demented revenge without rhyme or reason full of hate and stupidity and ugliness. A dog poisoner is not the sort of person who has the intelligence to phone the humane officer and protest against the dogs who Are irritating him destroying his property or threatening his chickens. He strikes Back in just exactly the same Way As an untrained unreasoning child. He has precisely the same amount of patience and charitable ness. A Small child is Superior of course because it has the compassion to feel affection for an animal. It is almost satisfying to think about dog Poison ers because More than anyone else in the world there can be no question in our mind How they should be treated like any other maniac. And because they Aren t sane they should be pitied. But that s hard to do and it s disturbing to know that some mentally incompetent person some person suffering from a mental disorder of a kind that makes him a serious threat to a Community is outside the confines of the institution in which he belongs. Since the chances against discovering a dog poisoner Are great we can Only Hope he happens to make a mistake and stomachs some of the stuff himself. Quot boredom is a vital problem for the moralist since at least half the sins of Mankind Are caused by the fear of a Bertrand Russell the suggestion is suspect the Point has recently been raised that Burlington has no a race problem Quot and that the Community self Survey which is making a study of interracial conditions Here should exercise extreme caution so As to not create difficulties where none exist. The Burlington Community self Survey As it has been explained numerous times in the newspapers is operating with no definite idea in mind of what the results of its investigation will be. The Survey is not looking for anything other than a True picture of the Way things Are. To suggest that the self Survey hold off because it might a create difficulties Quot is to suggest that Burlington keep its eyes closed so it won t see anything that might prove to be offensive or troublesome or disturbing to someone s conscience. The size of Burlington s negro Community the negroes comprising Burlington s Only sizeable minority is said to be less than is usually found in cities our size. This fact is Given As justification for some of the accepted Quot shortages Quot the negro population has to contend with. Its Small size makes it difficult for negroes to be Able to afford their own churches and similar centers of activity. This is a piece of information about the negroes in Burlington. It is accepted by most people probably because it is a harmless trivial bit of information that implies nothing anyone need worry about. The self Survey intends to learn what other factors Mold and shape Burlington s negro population taking All the factors As they come not sorting them to find the critical the harmless or the insignificant. The self Survey in t making any judgments of their work until this work is finished. It would certainly be unfair and Overly Sensa Tive to urge caution on a group that has proceeded As tactfully As has the self Survey. It would suggest that those urging caution were not As sure of their ground As they would like to be for if everything is really Rosy Here nobody need worry about it being proven. Unde the say by l f. P. Comes again the season of drownings. From Here on in we Are going to read about one water tragedy after another. It is a pity. Swimming boating and fishing give worlds of recreation to Many folks. You just can t beat water sports in any form. Yet every season death stalks into one Happy party after another. I would not be foolish enough to state that ajl drownings Are the result of carelessness but Many Are just that. If you plan to be around any body of water bigger than a Dixie cup make it a Point to Check every known Rule of safety. Memorize pm and abide by pm you can be Safe on the water if you will be. Take the time to think and you will always have the time to think under the sky pebbles in the Pool sorry to have to say that the perrys Are leaving. Well All miss them. Friend Bush is stepping up the baseball ladder. For this we Are glad. The Best of Luck Bush Alice Tommy and baby Bill. Come Back and see Mclaury took this writer to task for supposedly misjudging the size of Friend Harry s crowd t other Day. He further stated that we should never try to judge any Fly balls if we Are no better than that. He was speaking of a democratic Ball game no doubtless got some Nice color shots Down at Blackhawk club sunday. Better Start taking your color camera with you these week ends. Blossoming fruit Trees make sensational Are soon going to have one a drive in for each car in the county.
