The experience in Cal- gary and other places, stamps it in their opinion as the only modern method. Occasionally there is a citi- zen who refers to London and Paris, Toronto and other older cities in sup- port of the retention of the names. These people forget, however, that in these cities the streets are built up and the. names are easily remembered and seen. But in such places as Lethbridge is and will be for scores of years it is a different matter. Here it is impossible for anyone who has not made a study of it to know the names of the streets and for the strangers it is a puzzle. The average citizen knows the name of half a doz en streets and no more. As has been pointed out before, there are. enough short streets to preserve the names o persons who have been so closely identified with the city as to deserve the preservation of. their names. Fur ther than that, sentiment is foolish ness. Numbering the streets is th only businesslike way to identify them and the Council can feel assureeg this government just enough to allow them to educate their child- their God and. love their country; in the name of those who. yet recall with a tingle of their blood, the heroism of their fathers who gave this Republic to us, I second the nomination of the knightliest gla- diator Democracy has ever known, William J. Bryan of Nebraska. "When history .'shall unroll her pag- es to the generations yet to be, first among this country's greatest tors will be this great Nebraskan whose name is loved and, Honored wherever the sun shines, wherever the heart beats ox tongue speaks."
