J to is will by Paia furl \ i any a or it i j a it a j a Reader assails Myra North comic dear editor i agree with b. M. Of route 4, Kenosha in voicing hts criticism of the comic strip Myra North. When it was just published it started out Fine but gradually i have eliminated it from my Reading. Now i Don t even pay any attention to it. There is also the a comic a Dan Dunn in the bulletin which i m sure Many would like to have replaced. I thought comics were supposed to be comical but Dan Dunn is everything else but. 1 sometimes it in t even Worth Reading. Why not have it replaced by a out our Way i m sure the majority would rather have that. Besides it pertains More to every Day life. Let s have our laugh each sunday morning with some More pleasing comedy. K., Harbridge St lauds City. Wants swimming Pool dear editor i just want to Tell you what i think of our City. I think Racine is the finest City i Ever lived or been in. I just came Back from the Pacific coast and i bummed my Way Back visiting All leading cities. Racine seems o have things other cities do not have. Only one thing Racine needs and that is an outdoor swimming Pool then our City will top them All. I am sure people who visit other Parks and cities will agree with me. I have been told by tourists who have been in Racine that our City is the most Beautiful City of All Quot that they have visited. It sure makes a fellow feel proud to get such compliments on our City. But i notice some people do not appreciate our City. I mean citizens. They carve their names everywhere under the Sun. I wish they would Cut that out so our City will be the cleanest As Well As the most Beautiful. E. V. A Blake ave sunday journal times bulletin vol. 6�?no. 17. Racine wis., sunday August 9, 1936.

Something in the Way of an answer to the letters i have seen in the bulletin concern. Aing the men who Are said to a hang Donee of the ancient culture was about the Parks a speak or j Washington Park. Found in the same area. Implements of chipped quartzite scraper tools and other artefacts were being studied by archaeologists from the Denver museum of natural history who have established a Camp near the site of the discovery made by t.

Have you Ever walked Down the Street and then have to Cross the Street just because some idiot has a a Dud add throwing off water on the grass and on the sidewalk it gets my Goat. Just the other Day i walked Down the Street and without warning some fellow turned on the w Ater and there i was wet and a Long w ays from Home. So listen you a water wasters a if you like a Shower turn one on in your own Home. The Public does t want one. J. P., Blake ave cant we have Buck Rogers Back dear editor recently an article concerning the a Myra North special nurse a comic strip in the journal times was published in your column. I wholeheartedly agree with the writer. The drawings in the aforementioned strip Are terrible. To be exact the expressions on the faces of Lew Wen Myra North etc., Are so bad that no one in our family even so much As glances at them. This strip has a plot which is not definite. The scenes change rapidly and Are so ridiculous. I for myself enjoy All the other comic strips and the rest of the journal times. Why can t we have a Buck Rogers Back in a Myra North so place i am sure it would improve our comic Section considerably. Otherwise my family and myself consider the journal times and the sunday bulletin two swell papers. Thanks editor. For the space in the bulletin if this comment is printed.
