Gentleman of mature years a Man of some Means Long time a resident of Delta and one Given to serious thought remarked with genuine sincerity and so it seemed to the writer a pathetic solicitude i Don t know Why we can t get something going the Trou ble is with the location the people or Lack of such remarks provoke thought. They Challenge the Best that is in us. They deserve decent consideration. To ignore them is to sink deeper into the mire of failure and despair. This paper has no thought of being harshly critical. It has no indictment to make of the town or its people. It is honestly seeking the Best interest of All. Along that path alone lies its own Success and by that Means it Hopes to justify its existence. But it is a poor doctor who dangerously deceives his faithless watchman who neglects to sound the alarm in the face of approaching Dis Aster. Leadership is a prime essential to Community Progress. But there can be no leadership without a Leader and no Leader unless there Are others who Are willing to be led. That Means that without the co operation of a respectable group of citizens concerned about the general Well being All talk of leadership and Progress is futile. Location is an Accident and favourable or unfavourable May be overcome to a Large extent by the people. People Are what they make themselves. They Are less the creatures than they Are the creators of environment. Before they can Hope for enterprises to locate among them they must demonstrate that they Are wide awake receptive to new ideas and disposed1 to take up and push Forward progressive move ments. The gentleman referred to touched two vital spots when he mentioned people and that he was thinking along such lines is a hopeful sign. Our big need is for More men who will follow his example. Or.
