Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 1, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta li'f -i FOUR THE tETHBRlDGE DAILY KBRALD jCOMfiANV, I.IMITK6 SeiHhi Ly maU, per Mar;........... 1.00 mail tifP-t'tAtMtita .......

But it is at least en-cotttasiiiK to note that that interest liaf a habit of awaking itself when it considers the necessity has arisen. Such appears to be the case at the presailit timo. tvitU the subject of the l|Ia7or'B.' sulary being injected into �what pronilsed to be a tame election. 7he new interest is well advised, but tt woold be far better, in the welfare �f ciTic matters as a.whole, that it be li ^er present interest' instead of ^l^eii^ �alled'ti>rth -^y -what nay be il^utatdeTed an untoward event. f ^alK^KelM of tie citi' '^liikli ^a^^^clirySUUized 'itself i^o the ;�U^e^|^''of cabling 4 meetia^l^af thf ;tre�ent f ii^iU rate as compared to the mill rate f at the time referred to, with an ex-v palnation of how it has come to be V 42 mills. .There are Items as to where i^ savings have b6en effected by which the city has gained. These and othe* matters need elbeidttlAgfor forming a wise and unprejudioed judgment as to the Mayor's salary claim. Unless these are known it will not b^ an easy matter to arrive at any conclusions in the interests and for the benefit of the city. It fa not a matter that has any bwrlng on his Worship in person but B to the man who is capable of guid Ing the city safely and what he is worth for this responsible position. The principle is the same, though in not so grave a measure, as to the wisdom or not of changing a general in a campaign.    The Mayor has laid himself open to It good .deal of criticism in his belated Mmouncement in public as to bis in tentlon of stipulating for a higher sal ary and placing it at the figure he has. Then are Just grounds for this crlti-�lBm la his claim coming, as it does, |l we�k before nomination day. The ^BMtlon of the raise in salary cannot hti aald to be an overnight thought irltk hlB Worship, and the citizens f ahotald have been oflficlaHy made aware ot bl8 intention at least a month, instead of a week, before nomination day. ao that there would be allowed reasonahle instead of hurried consultation on the point raised. We believe that the public should have been stud-\ led In this matter. ! The question of raising the mayor-' alty salary, should the sentiment be in its favor, to the figure of |6,000 brings ir Into consideration the whole question 1 of our present civic administration, ^ and it might be well, with interest in pelvic alfjtlrB at the flood tide, to con-A alder whether or not we have the best f?lorm of municipal government. We ^mention this in the new interest that ^.Is being taken in the managerial form .of government, as betokened in Mont-4rea|, and, to come nearer home, in u%Iedicfne Hat. This in the main r&-^SPlves itself into a city manager with /.J^mlnlBtrative powers responsible to i board of aldermen, with whom lies /^e power of appointing and dlBmiss-sling him on a two-third majority vote. the sentiment rises to paying the i|Mayor iJie ^6.000 a year, this may well EAlso come into the consideration of the ' '(plectorate. 1^ There is one advantage in the mau- t I I I i 'T If acerlal form of jtovernment, and that is Uuit there will be no such thing as playing to the popular vote by the man who is'at the head of civic aiairs. This is a human weakness no matter who 1* hi the head of lattalrs, in that lie win ow� the continuance of his of-flpA to the^Ppular voto^ and there will kl�r�ys he the temptation to pander to this vote, no matter the individual. In the ppsltton of the manager responsible to the board of aldermen, and to it aione, all the temptation of catering to the popular TctewiU be removed. The mind of the individual will be free and untramelled with no other thought than that of his particular job. This is something which the public will do well to consider in the way of future civic administration. With a manager placed in the position he will be, there will further be no consideration required as to whether he deserves 14.000 or $�,000. In the full responsibility he will be placed in, and in the petition he Mo occupies, it will be an easy matter tOr estimate what such an individual Hrlll'be -worth. We pass on the tttj^giestion as something welt worth inquiring into, with the wider, scope of selection it allows, and the lera risk it iflordi of inaking any mistake which the preseiit form of popular election lays itself open to. We have hoard a great deal of re-coilltHiptton. It is well to get the Word'opt (sl our'headp skd to think of constirudilPci as the most applicable td the pi;esent times and conditions. . VI^]p^b1lte' of the teachers' salaries, whidh;blems, and they become bigger in thit we are passing throngh a fluctuation stage where shrewd insight, sound and solid Judgment, and with it the utmost caution, are necesBary. The can in th^ present instance is not so much for educationalists on the Board as men of affairs who are in the habit of dealing with things in the dollars and' cents meithod, %lth a vidw to efficiency combined with wise economy. The men whose presence on the School Board will he invaluable in the coming year are men of business experience in distinction to others. In the candidates for election there should at'iMpt. i>e:pne who is known as a buBlnelM 9>*i>f i^ad a man, withal, who has a sttke In the city in the amount of taxes ,he contributes. It should be the business of the electors to find such a man, in the importance his presence on the new Board will make. We have yet to see him among the candidates for the new Board, and when found he should not fail to enlist all the support possible. We do not for one moment, in stating this, wish to infer that we are underrating the capabilities of those who have so far presented themselves In the elec tlon field. But we do say, and unhesi taiingly say, that of the four vacancies to be filled one at least should be by a man of the experience and the capa bility we have named. This particularly in thp very important problems which confront the new Board.    At a time like this what is felt missing is something in the way of a citi sens' committee. It is somewhat late In the day to organise such a body. It therefore becomes a matter for the getting together of a number of men in the spirit of such a committee to make it their business to see that a man, with the shrewdness and practical experience we are wont to associate with business, be found who will allow his name to be submitted as a candidate for the School Board. II there is anything in the meaning of sacrifice of time in public service, the issues before next year's Board call for that sacrifice in the measure public duty is sensed. Do You Know?

MUST STAND TOGETHER Sir Arthur Carrie Tallu Plainly at Canadian Club Dinner in Boston : .30.-Many delegates to the meetifi^Jot t'iio assembly of-the League of Natfopii, which today resumed sessions, regard the coming week &s the most critical period in the history of the Prgaiiization. Questions which have boen�settled in committees by a majority vote, after stub-bom contests in some cases, must be decided in the assembly by a unanimous vote. The only exception is in ^hp case of the election of new members and amendments. A retolution passed by the sub-committee on block; ades yesterday proposed that an International commission on blockades be appointed by the council, and this body shall report to the assembly the measures it 'would put into effect ag-alitst an aggressor nation. The expected debate on the failure of the council to intervene for preven-tibn of the war between Poland and soyiet Russia has been put over to Friday's session. The report of the committee on amendments to the covenant was expected to contain a recommendation that a commission be appointed to Which all ' amendments proposed should be referred for study and reported upon to the next assembly, which it is now considered will certainly be held during the summer or early fall. Such a committee would have sufficient latitude to consider any propositions emanating from the United States. iSotae of the delegates have consider^ ; the advisability of giving the conmiittee the express authority to enter into negotiations with Washington at a favorite moment.

OTTAWA, Nov. 30.-The National Dairy Council of Canada has been successful In its application before the railway board for an order to compel railway companies to carry-^ pasteurized cream at the second-clasa instead of the flrst-class xate. The railway companies in some cases have been classifying this article under the classification of "cream, condensed or otherwise manufactured or prepared," which carries the flrst-class rate, the contention being that the pasteurized cream is a preparation of some kind. Chief Commissioner Carvell finds, however, that the pasteurization simply means the putting of cream through' a heating and cooling process which exterminates any bacteria that might be in the article, and that, as it Is, not a manufactured article, it is entitled to the second-class rate. 8BATTLB3, Nov. 80.-Two survivors of the missing barge W.
