Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - August 02, 1936, Racine, Wisconsin What our readers have to say. La will be paid for t any comment used i in this Sun Day journal times bulletin vol. 6�?"no. 16. Ii Racine wis., sunday August 2,1936. Circulation Over 21,000 wants More use of Lake front dear editor i think the City should do something about our Lake front. During the late heat wave there was not one Street end open to the Lake from seventh Street on out to Twenty first Street except for the beaches. Property owners on the Lake front Plant Trees and shrubs that obstruct the View at the ends of almost every Street. As i understand it the property at the ends of the City streets to the Lake is City property and should be open to the Public. Strangers in the City from Inland states Are extremely interested in the Lake yet there is Little Chance for them to conveniently see it. Would t it be Nice if All the publicly owned Lake front property was made into Parks i would like to see what other residents have to say on this matter. My family and i think the a a bulletin it is great. A. A., Wisconsin St Reader suggests Bells for cats dear editor the strap animal situation has reveals customs shortcut readers who wrote to bulletin receive answers Leher gives advice on dogs buses and House Hunting woes act Don t complain is message of resident to Points out methods of ending abuses and improving City. Sunday july 26, 1936. Dear editor i believe that the sunday bulletin is a much appreciated Racine institution. me it ranks never been More serious in a with free radio programs the pub Cine than at the present time. The humane Relief society is doing a worthy Public service at their shelter on West High Street. But i would go further into the matter and insist that cats be licensed As Well As dogs. Cats Are furtive prowlers and can be on one to premises destroying Birds and property without the owner having any warning. The cat i believe should Wear a Bell when outside of its own Home. One pet shop owner has suggested that licensed cats could be painlessly tattooed inside the ear. Whichever method is adopted it would mean that owners would take better care of their animals and make a serious attempt to con t c it u i. V tool their wanderings. I would like jerseys 1 Hanks to know the opinions of gardeners and others on this subject. E. T., sixth St lie Library the beautifully kept a of Square in the Center of our City and free delivery of goods purchased from merchants. Many of us May prize it but Little because is costs us no Money and no exertion but most of us would miss it sorely if the journal times were to discontinue it. When i Tell you that i read the a of luxury hairy pampers cows with boost butterfat. In Reader explains Why wives work dear editor just a pet Peeve out for an airing. It is in regard to a married woman working if her husband is working. I agree this is wrong and so do the majority of women who Are working. Nevertheless do the people that Are kicking know that both wages combined of a Man and woman working now a Days Are not enough for a family of even two to get along comfortably on Why Are not men to wages equal to the High Cost of living where does a $3 Bill go does it stretch As far As it did in the Good old fashioned Days when a woman married for a Home and her meal ticket i admit there is no future for the graduates of today with their jobs taken but if there is a Law made to prohibit married women from working let there also be a Law providing men with a decent wage scale which might Lead to honest living and happier Homes. Thanks for the bulletin. It is an alright paper makes lots of friends and perhaps enemies too. L. G., Center St sugar land Texas. A <7p a the Jersey cow is Queen at Benjamin Clayton to Model Dairy Here run More As a Hobby than As a commercial Enterprise. He has 160 a Queens a All registered thoroughbreds. Everything is provided for their Comfort and convenience. They Are not allowed to eat Ordinary grass. The pasture was especially planted to Fine Clover and other delicious cud producers. It is cultivated and Sharp eyed herdsmen Ever Are on the Alert for weeds or other common plants. Strolling in from the Lush pasture Madame Jersey goes immediately to her private room unattended. There she spends two hours in peace and rest. Not a buzzing Fly disturbs her. Operates own Fountain. Each private room is equipped with a private drinking Fountain from which Springs Cool fresh water. The cow operates her own Fountain merely by pressing her bulletin every sunday morning before i even glance at my copy of the Chicago Tribune you will not doubt my appreciation. In my opinion the most interesting department in the bulletin is a what our readers have to ?t news radio programs books and magazines work recreation and Beautiful scenery Are All interesting and enjoyable but the thoughts of our fellow men their viewpoint of life and their surroundings Are about the most interesting things i know. I consider myself a fairly Good thinker but my intellectual Well being demands an extensive knowledge of what the rank and file of my Fellows Are thinking. The bulletin a Vox pop always stimulates my own mental processes and inspires in me a greater interest in civic advantages and civic needs. A a whole Page devoted to letters from readers would be none too much for me and i am sure that i should find every letter even unto the least a source of Delight and inspiration. He who is not interested in the thoughts and opinions of his neighbors misses something very much Worth while in life. W., Wisconsin Street. 1936.
