Increased Interest Rates Insure Greater Return on Loaned Money
Monday. May ll, 1953
ter-proposal which would increase license fees to raise $1,500,000. then turn the money over to the sheriffs themselves, through their counties, to increase each individual sheriff's department. The sheriffs may need manpower—certainly the Racine sheriff’s department does—but it should come from their own counties, not from a state handout, and not for the purpose of increasing the little domain of each of these county politicians.
The legislature should have increased the state patrol which knows no county lines or little political empires. But it won’t. The legislature also should abolish the politically-elected sheriffs, and replace them with qualified. trained policemen. It won’t do that, either, but the people of Wisconsin can hope that these changes can come in the future
Visit Racine Military Units During Open House Week
We can think of no better way for Racine residents to honor the military forces during Armed Forces week than to pay a visit to one or more of the local military units this week.
Demonstrating more unity than their top officers in Washington, the local officers in charge of the Army and Navy reserves. Civilian Air Patrol. Coast Guard and National Guard have arranged an open house schedule and invited all residents to come and see what the local military and reserve units are doing to train men for mobilization.
Hundreds of Racine men spend many hours a week in training and keeping up to date on military advances to provide trained personnel for emergencies. These units are a backstop for the nation’s regular armed forces, and during the present world tension such a trained reserve is not only necessary, but nmperative.
A visit to one or more of these units this week will not only prove educational, but it will also show our appreciation to those who are willing to stay in training to protect our way of life in case of a national emergency.
