I what our readers have to say. Ill will be paid for to any comment tied i in this column Ujj i sunday journal times St bulletin vol. 5-no. 20. Racine wts., sunday sept. I 1935.

They mete out so Many hours a month for you to work and by the time you pay rent water Bill Gas and electric out of your measly Little pay Check you either have to go to without Oats or clothes one or the other. With the High Cost of living one can hardly buy enough to eat. I think there Are too Many Young people on the staff that Don t know the hardships of the hungry household and a great Many that Are drawing a Large salary that Conte from families that Don t need it and that one or More in their family s working they won to allow More than one Iii a Relief family to work so Why should no to it be investigated and Quot do unto them As they do unto or Quot and put someone in the re that really needs it and understands the situation.

Also thanks to leu \ _ for showing the boys and i rapt he a Good time. Again con y ant ions k k found according to Katharine Lenroot native of Superior wis., and nationally known figure in child welfare work lowered standards of living frugality in food to the Point of deprivation dangerous saving of fuel drastic i economies in clothing and household supplies illness debt and discouragement. Later it made studies in other typical localities. Miss Lenroot writes a with approximately 8,000.000 children under the age of to and j 86 1.009 boys and girls to and it years of age on Relief Rolls and Tother millions in families living in conditions of extreme economic distress it is important that there be Clear understanding of the human costs of unemployment in terms of the health vitality and wholesome development of our future citizens. Geneva St safety first Council told dear editor i enjoy Jour sunday bulletin very much. My pet Peeve is this Why do our 4mermen vote against an ordinance which would insure Protection for a a or children on the fourth it is and to think of the Many innocent lads that have to suffer on account of the carelessness of older evil Dren in the handling of fireworks and to think How much trouble could be avoided if the Council would consider the safety of our children rather than the dealers who had left Oer fireworks. I Hope something w ill be done to compel the Council to pass the necessary ordinance on this question. Many thanks for the bulletin. C. H. H. Mead St expresses views on tavern Issue dear editor a tavern License was applied for in the twelfth Ward. Immediately a petition was circulated against having a tavern in the twelfth Ward. It seems to be spreading like a fever. Now we have the same predicament in the eleventh Ward. A gentleman who owns a store building that a stood empty for a Long period of time has Titi a la v decided to make this building a laying proposition that is. Open a tavern. Tile location of the building is i a business District not re Sidon Al. Which is also True in the Case a the twelfth Ward applicant. Circulation of petitions has been arted against operating a tavern n this location now. Obtaining Sig Uit ures on petitions against Stone Hing or other seems to be a mania a r disease w Ith borne of the citizens in this Section of Racine. I think of some of the petitioners were in the place of the empty store owners they would be less enthusiastic about depriving some one else of a rightful income. I can not see anything dishonourable about a tavern. If you do not care to patronize them done to repeal of the eighteenth amendment is certainly helping to bring United states out of the red. We in Racine voted for repeal did no to we what is wrong now. Do we want it or Don t we what is so wrong in having a Glass of Beer nothing turn to rage a col s resume of Survey. Because Racine had been covered in the Survey in 1921-22, it was one of four cities selected for study in 193 4. The Survey was made in Atlanta and Memphis cities with populations Between 230.000 and 300.000, and Racine and Terre haute ind., As cities Between 60,000 and population. And in Washington la c. Racine is described As a typical Industrial City with diversified industries which have employed a Large proportion of skilled labor. While the industries had been seriously affected by the general i economic situation it was believed conditions were definitely improving. The report indicated. The area chosen for study in Racine was a factory neighbourhood. House to House visits were made and every family in which there were children under 21 and from w hich it was possible to obtain information. Were interviewed. Employment of different i members of the families loss of i jobs or reduction of incomes debts and other financial losses deprivations in clothes food and medical attention were recorded. Racine compares favourably. Miss Lenroot says As to standards of living. Quot conditions in Racine appeared to be Superior to those in the other cities included in the study. Referring to the milk situation the article Points Volt that every one of the is Relief families visit turn to rage 4. Col. 4 it say even the mid summer Lull has failed to slow up the collectors. Stamp purchases Here during the last four Veals have shown a steady increase c. T. Dryz Racine dealer said. Dryz says there Are 8,000 collectors in Racine i too of them being what Are termed a serious ??t these Quot serious Quot collect i tors save pre cancellations perforation varieties and Complete issues of certain countries. Dryz says there Are collections in Racine valued at As much As $200,000. Own-1 ers of Large collections Are secretive. However and guard their identities for fear of theft. Thousands of Stamps. The collections Range from a few Stamps to As Many As 23.000 varieties. One collector recently returned from a tour of South America with More than 3.000 varieties of South american Stamps which Are the envy of All his colleagues. Soon after this Jaunt he was Given the privilege of going Over an old stamp album which continued pm \ stamp its. It had reposed in an attic for years. Quot i won to be Able to find anything i want in this thing Quot said the collector. He found Soo Stamps which he was glad to buy. Club meets regularly. William Leigh a Clunie. President of the Belle City stamp club says Ravine collectors represent All walks of life from tile boy in his teens to the retired manufacturer. The club has a membership of to and meets at Hie y. M. C. A. On the first and third fridays of each month. Membership is open Only to collectors Over 18 years but the club is sponsoring a youth movement of its own and is organizing clubs for boys and girls in All parts of the county. Miss Edith Meachron county superintendent of schools is aiding in the work. Clubs have been started in Washington Park and William Horlick High schools and in Union Grove and plans Are in Progress for similar organizations in Burlington and Waterford. A collectors to meeting was staged in Union Grove last week. Work of organizing new school a Luhs vill lie started Early in september. Some Are specialists. Among serious pre Anc Dation collectors Are Orvin support and prof. Clarence a. Wakman of Vav ii Liam Horlink High school. Both Are considered authorities on this specially. Serious collectors of Bacin a going in for Bureau pre Anco lations and blocks of four Stamps. The great popularity of stamp collecting is said to be due to Quot commemorate rest issued to Mark special events. The first commemorative Issue was printed in 1869. So postmaster Farley is not the father of commemorative Quot As some May have believed. Ceile tors Are asking those who have old collections to make them available to serious collectors in forgotten trunks there May be batches or Stamps which would be Bonanza to collectors the their various sports and at play.

Waves and curls have resulted in the Sale of More Bobby pins than hair pins they say hut even Short hair appears to require More hair pins than Are required by Long hair. An observer remarks that one of tile reasons for the increased Sale is that pins fall out of Short hair More easily. A walk along any Racine sidewalk adds strength to the observation. Within a couple of blocks one would be Able to pick up a Good sized collection of Long ones Short ones thick ones and thin ones.
