Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta ! iiiil'i ' if- THE ILETHPRIDGE DAILY .HERALD THUftSDAY, FEBRUARY 25,1915 letbbribge iDevalb Xctbbri&ge, Hlberta - pertinent questions are being asked anent the recent imbroglio. Why did the city get all the undesirable publicity, and why did the newspapers publish it so freely? That's one poser. The Herald published all the facta of the financial trouble so nearly as we could get them because we believed it was time the people were being' jarred out of their sense of false security. The school board and the city have been spending faster than the ability of the ratepayers to pay, and only a rude jolt served up �without frills would wake the people up to the fact. Let the people outside Lethtiridge tlilnk what they may, our financial situation is one hundred per cent, more secure because �we .know what we face. Over-ei-?iendlture got a black eye from the undesirable publicity if you wish to call It such. Poser No. 2: Did the commission-era merely stumble on the solution accorded, or did they allow the school iboard to butt its head up against a stone wall, knowing all the time that the city could raise the money? The Herald is not asking the question, it has been asked the Herald by more than one interested ratepayer, and if there has .been any undesirable publicity, the commiBsion-ers are .blamed. The "solution" after, all was not such a profound piece of financial finesse as to dispel the idea that the commissioners displayed more or less indifference to the predicament of the school board, and the question is natural. Probably the commissioners felt that they would ibe doing Lethbridge a good turn .by bringing the school board up sharp, and giving thein closer acquaintance with the world's money markets that In times to come the board will not ask: "How much will �we spend this year?" but "How much can we save? How much can the ratepayers really aro.rd?" In ^ny case there is just cri' :!sm of the IS/ck of team play between the city council and the school board over matters of finance, and the rats';ayprs will be just as well ploBs-sd if !t} fnUire they can adjust their differences with less of a fuss. Both are spending the people's money and the people have a right to some cbnsideratlon. It' the people have been the victims of undesirable pubr llcHy ragardlag Lethbridge the H-er-ald fepKeveB they aiay quite safely lay the blame to the lack of under-fitkndlng between the council and the JKhool 'board ever money matters.
