Circulation Over 21,000 throws some Quot eggs Quot at Racine s police dear editor lately i be read about robs of Praise for the italine police Force but i done to think they tre so hot. The Racine cops can always Pinch or get rough with some minor or drunkard but when some major crime is committed in this town where is the police Force just because a Man has a tin badge does this give him any More special privilege than anyone else some cops stroll into stores and eat up what they want and leave without so much As saying thanks. doubt you have read or heard about the wrestling matches at the eagles Hail and some of the riots that follow.

M., Marquette St spies to Wiles unveiled favors amplifiers for bus Drivers dear editor some weeks ago there was a letter printed in your column in which i was very much interested As it was a thought which had often occurred to me. It to about having some sort of megaphone arrangement for the bus Drivers so that when they Call the names of the streets they can be heard All Over the bus. As the Driver sits in the front of the bus his Oice does not carry Back very far and when Riding in a part of the town where one is not acquainted it makes it very hard to know where to get off. During this last Wanter a Friend and i were downtown one evening and coming Back the bus windows were Frozen so we could not see through them. Consequently we Rode five blocks beyond our Street and had to get out and walk Back which was not pleasant As it was very cold and Slippery. So i think it would be Fine if the buses could be improved in this matter by next Winter. Thanks much for the bulletin. We All enjoy it. . A. F., w.

P., Hubbard St., that some married women should use a Little common sense and give their jobs to girls that have to work. It must have been disgusting to hear them actually admitting they done to need the Money but working just for a pastime or for poker Kames. Such women Are both a nuisance and a Burden and use very Little of their brain. really Bure they would be ashamed if they knew what we think of them. The reason i am writing is because i also know several cases where the husband and wife Are both working. She also spends her Money on foolish things while some other girl would be using it for necessities. I disagree with c. M., Frank ave. Bulletin. I think it is an paper and enjoy read a to sure every one else thanks so much for the bulletin. C. V. L., Bate St turn to Page i column 5 Philadelphia.
