Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - June 30, 1935, Racine, Wisconsin What our i readers have if to say is sunday journal times bulletin will lie paid for at comment coed this column i vol. 5-no. La. Racine wis., sunday june 30,1935. I a Mnew circulation 19,500 sees need for warning signs near playgrounds dear editor now that the schools Are closed and children will be in the City playgrounds much of the time i think the City should erect signs warning motorists that they Are nearing a playground and should drive More carefully. I noticed that they have Cauca signs at Marquette Street Park. I sure think it would be a Good ides to have them at All playgrounds. It would sure make it much safer for children at the Parks and Aho for those coming and going from the playgrounds. Also. I wish to thank the bulletin for the Fine pictures they have printed and Hope they keep printing them. H. K. In. Main St tenants pay taxes resident Points out dear editor a tenants Are taxpayers indirectly a in reference to the question of Only taxpayers voting on Bond issues etc., i w so to state that tenants paying rent Are unquestionably taxpayers if ail tenants were unable to pay rent the property owners would have no mans of paying their taxes. Therefore the tenants paying rent Are paying taxes indirectly. So Many people seem to think that unless you own a Home or have property you Are not a taxpayer and should have no rights or privileges in Public affairs. Rents Are higher now and most tenants pay enough rent to pay the taxes on in entire property of a double Flat Nome. I do. Also if the Bond issues were voted Down by Only taxpayers there would not be the work from which the receive Money with which to help our so called taxpayers pay their taxes. I know that property owners who Don t have tenants have to have a very Good Job and have to scrimp and save every Penny for taxes whereas those who have tenants just collect the rent and taxes Are paid. So in this Way a me can easily see that the renter is a taxpayer in the Long run. I Hope to see this in print As there Are Many of us who could buy Homes and leave Many empty houses from which taxpayers depend upon for their taxes. We look Forward every sunday for the bulletin to Rome. Here s three cheers for the bulletin. H. M. St. Patrick St bus Driver lauded for a Good deed dear editor about two weeks ago t was running to catch the bus when i saw a Little tot in the Middle of the Street. The bus was just turning around on Taylor Avenue at the end of the car line. The Driver stopped the bus in the Middle of the Street got out of the bus picked up the Little tot and took her across the Street safely. I Hope this article is printed in the sunday bulletin so the bus Driver who did this kind deed will know that some one appreciated what he did for that child. And i am very sure if her Mother or father would have seen they too. Would have appreciated very much. _ i read the column Quot what our la id cts have to say to every sunday morning and enjoy it very much. Thanks for the sunday bulletin. A. S. Durant ave autos top fireworks As july 4 danger former Racine Man drives into town with his House trailing behind him a a a Rio fam capable maids in demand Here stale Bureau has More help requests than applications. Noise for celebrating termed uncivilized dear editor when Savages celebrate any significant event noise and ritual characterize that Celebration. The More civilized nations become the More individualistic becomes their manner of expression. American to individualism perhaps ads that of All the world. In one respect however our conduct remains a Little behind the dictations of reason and intelligence. To dem nitrate our Joy at National Independence by inaugurating a festival it of noise indicates a remnant of uncultivated influence. Supposing that on the fourth of july one child in the City of rating should lost the sight of an Eye through the use of fire crackers. Not All the Racket in the United states would be compensation enough for such a loss. To repair a damage like that one mentioned is impossible. To prevent its occurrence should be relate Ely simple if the intelligent people of the Community Are determined to undertake such prevent Ion. Thanking you. For the bulletin. A it it. Thirteenth St resents slurs against boys in uniform dear editor i have had a pet Peeve against Cine of the so called citizens of Racine who cannot recognize a v. S. Army uniform and respect it As such that it fairly makes me boil when i hear a remark such As i heard saturday night last week while in the company of two army boys one who is a Well known Young Man in Racine.

Arentt there a few More friends who w ill voice their opinions about our soldiers ? thank you for the bulletin it sure is great Reading for sunday morning. L. J. F. Superior St clock wrong curfew will set it straight dear editor the citizens of Racine have become so accustomed to the blowing of the 9 30 p. In. A curfew whistle Quot that a great Many of them when asked if the whistle is still blown. Are not sure whether it is or not. It would be interesting to knowhow Many of our citizens really know Why the whistle is blown at that time. A number of years ago a consid a Rable stir was made about the enforcement of the curfew Law in Racine and arrangements were made with manufacturing firms in various sections of the cite to blow their whistles at 9 30 p. In. As a warning that All Young it ters were to be off the streets or take the a sequences. It is no uncommon sight to see children of a tender on the streets at a late hour. But nothing is done about it. But tie curfew whistle still blows on to the Only purpose it serves seems to be affording a Means of checking the clocks of the citizens living within hearing distance. Why should not the City discontinue this a of farce or better still enforce the Law pm.
