What our readers have f i to say. Sunday journal times Isi will be any Cern re la this pita for comment cled cola in bulletin vol. 6 no. 6. Racine wis., sunday May 24,1936. Circulation Over 21,000 suggests plan to Aid bus patrons dear editor Thero it a detail Tho local bus transportation company can add to their buses that would Ald Many of the people who Board buses in the Center of town where All buses pass. I am sure Many will agree that a sign placed on each Side of the Center of the bus with the name of the bus route would prove advantageous to people who come from out of a store and suddenly see a bus waiting. In order to know the name of the bus they find it necessary to run in front of the bus to see the name plate. Sometimes they get there too late to do that and consequently they needlessly let their bus pass. I feel sure this item would be appreciated by users of buses. Ltd. F., Center St customs roots deep Many usages reveal origins far Back in history give youth a Chance married women told dear editor i happened to be present at s i d party one evening when the Opic of women working came up at my table. One said she did no to need to work As her husband made plenty. They have a Beautiful Home and new car and no children. So this lady says of she would no to know what to do with herself of she did no to work. And another said she did t need to w Ork either but that they used the Money she made to play poker with. Now i think of these women would just use common sense they would give up their jobs to some Young girl or boy. It to these women who drive our Young men and women to destruction. I am a married woman with a family and i know what the Young men and girls have to go through these Days j As their fathers done to earn enough to keep them with spending Money.

Stray dogs stir Gardener s Wrath dear editor a couple of weeks ago there was a notice printed in the journal times telling All people who owned dogs to keep them tied up or the dog Catcher would take them to the Pound. I did t see Many dogs running Loose for a couple of Days but now they Are All out again. Can t something he done about it i wish the police would enforce this Law. The dogs when let run this time of the year Are a Public nuisance. They destroy newly planted gardens Flowers and shrubbery. I Hope you w ill print this letter or some other one on the same subject so x by see m. See the steel yacht Pathfinder built by the Racine boat manufacturing co. Whose Plant was burned 1 in the third largest fire in Racine to history on May 31, 1903, was the finest pleasure Craft to be launched at a great lakes Yard. Built for a Chicago Man it was admired whenever it entered a port. The Pathfinder is shown herewith lying at the company s docks on the South Side of the River East of Marquette Street Bridge. It was then about ready for its tests before acceptance. The Pathfinder i participated in a race to be run be tween Chicago and Milwaukee the other entrants being the whale Back Christopher Columbus and i the Virginia the latter of the Goodrich company. Something went awry on the Pathfinder while off Winnetka 111., and she was pulled out of the race. Keel Laid in 1896. The keel for the Pathfinder was Laid in the Large Frame Structure at the right in the picture the building being erected for that special purpose. For Many months the work of construction went on and she was ready for touring after a Little More than a year. The Pathfinder was launched that it May bring about the enforcement of the notice printed in your j pc it of and in leaving the shed Raper. Many thanks for the bulletin. The Craft tilted it the w. B., Thurston ave upper portion of her Hull striking the Side of the doorway and doing slight damage to several steel plates. It was difficult to launch such a Large Craft at that Point As the River is not very wide but it was accomplished without further mishap. Other Craft of her Type and size undoubtedly would have been built at that Plant had not the works burned completely. After without having to go of i the fire of 1903, Walter c. Rey nolds president of the company considered rebuilding on the same location. While consideration was being Given to that plan an offer from Muskegon mich., was received and the company located there.

When you first started the column it was interesting entertaining and educational. Now it has none of those qualifications. Too Many people Are exploiting your column merely to get an unearned Dollar.

In closing i am not going to Tell you what a great paper you print. Instead i think it can be greatly improved. C. M., Frank a get student protests school regulation dear editor at the High school graduation when we All go on a spree a school Board regulation comes Down upon our glee. I think this expresses the feeling of every senior at Washington Park High school. I am graduating in june along with a few Hundred others and i have found that every time we had planned to do a Little out of the Ordinary we ran against a school Board regulation. At first we had planned to have a dinner dance at the Meadowbrook country club but there we ran against one. Then we decided to have it at hotel Racine but found that we would have to come Back to school for the dance. A certain regulation says we May have the banquet outside of school but we must have the dance in school. In t to Jat foolish in the first place we a maven to accommodations at school i for a dance. And in the second Ype tace i surely think we who Are Aid enough to know what we Are doing should be allowed to have a Little enjoyment. After All it is something to graduate. I wish the school Board could Realise How they turn to a go i col. 2 loss of $300,000. The greatest fire loss in the City was the big fire of May 5, 1883, when a Large Section of the downtown District burned. Next in amount of loss was the fire which destroyed the Large Plant of the Racine manufacturing co. Which occupied the entire Block on the East Side of what then was Mead Street Between sixth and eighth streets. That loss was $77,500. The boat company fire with a loss of $300,000, started in the boat works and soon spread to adjoining Frame buildings of the Case company and the lumber Yards of that concern. The spectacular part of that fire was when the Oil in the tanks of the Standard Oil co. Burned. Smoke and flames roared to a height of 150 feet or More.

Shebenik 1819 Franklin Street is shown Here with the grand prize Moore Range Given by the Mohr Jones hardware company in the recent journal times cooking school. Hubert Johnson. Behind each Way of doing a thing lies a reason which often has been dressed up by civilization and superstition until it has lost its original meaning. A glance into the past reveals that Many of the present Day customs have roots farther Back in history than the average person realizes. The present hat tipping is now the Mark of a gentleman but the custom originated As the Mark of slavery. In ancient times when one Man realized he was weaker than another he signified his inferiority by prostrating himself. Later he merely Knelt or bowed. When Armor became male attire the knights removed their helmets in the presence of their Liege lords. In respect to an equal the Knight would raise his visor. Tho modern tipping of hats was but a step from this. Handshaking originated As a truce when men were fighting. This custom enabled each adversary to be sure that his foe would not Stab him in the Back or commit similar foul play. The custom extended to friends no would offer their weapon hands. Based on superstition. The custom of covering the woman born As parents reached u.
