Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - September 27, 1936, Racine, Wisconsin What our Quot Quot a readers have v to say. Sunday journal times bulletin t re i a. I1�?� will be paid for i f any comment i Sod this column. Vol. 6�?no. 24. Racine wis., sunday september 27, 1936. Circulation Over 21,000 j will buy dog to save nation dear editor a Short while ago i saw an article in the bulletin on a a dogs destroying gardens and lawns. It has Given me an inspiration which i would like to pass on to president Roosevelt. Why plow under so much wheat and food stuff when the dogs can just As Well destroy it As the authorities get from $2 to $6 per year License on each dog it would be much better than paying the Farmer to plow it under. Even puppies under License age will tear up enough clothes to keep the Price of Cotton up. I done town a dog but will get one right away to show my patriotism. Hooray lets All get two dogs and put Uncle Sam on his feet. I Hope to see this in print. Many thanks for the bulletin. F. H., Howland ave judges Fate void of glues Man wants to travel can to so he sends his hat missourian indulges his wanderlust with air Argosy by proxy garbage collectors earn High Praise dear editor this is not a a pet peeves by any Means but a word of Praise for the men who collect the garbage in West Racine. It so happens that we had the Yard and sidewalk barricaded with lines full of freshly laundered clothes on the Day these men called. They were considerate enough to walk around the Corner of the Block and enter the Yard from a Side that was not Strung full of clean clothes. I want to say that if these men Are always that thoughtful they will find a Friend in every Home that has the family Wash Hung up to dry on a garbage thanks for the bulletin ed., its a Fine r. L., Grove ave old Fedora rides with pilots to worlds far Corners. This is the Story of a Wick Eye a or rather of two Wickey s. The first Wickey Albert spent nearly 20 years of his life As an express handler for Wells Fargo and later the railway express Agency in St. Louis not As an agent or Foreman or anything like that but As a handler a Leader praises Chest workers All hands lost in 1921 tragedy ih0n. Joseph f. Crater when Lake Schooner capsized stepped into taxicab and Rode to oblivion divert dog funds to humans a plea dear editor i have sort of a pet Peeve and Here it is. It seems As though every few weeks someone Calls upon the City Council for an appropriation for various things. Recently the humane society asked for a Large sum so As to care for stray dogs and cats. In my opinion it would be much better to do More for the destitute people in our City instead Rof spending so much to care for stray dogs and cats. Why not have \ the police do away with the unwanted pets and save All the extra expense of caring for them. People who cannot afford to feed their dog Well and keep it Home should not be allowed to have one. There Are too Many stray and uncured for dogs roaming the streets of Racine and destroying Flowers and shrubbery. Again i say they should be done away with at once instead of asking for Money to care for them. 300 to give time carry Appeal for funds. To that few people in Racine realize the tremendous investment in time made by Volunteer Community leaders in preparing for and carrying out the annual Appeal to finance the Community Chest was the statement made today by h. D. Spencer president of the Community Chest. Or. Spencer had words of Praise for the co operation which volunteers of the Campaign organization Are giving to the Success of the movement. He pointed out the amount of time being spent by t. Gleason Morris general chairman of the Campaign and John s. Addison co chairman in attending meetings and making contacts with leaders for service to head various Campaign units. Or. Morris said hand truck Strong Back handler. But there Wras another Side to Wick Cyl a nature one that few of his co workers realized a leaning toward the romantic. As the years passed Over Albert e., trundling crates into express cars crates bearing tags to Distant glamorous sounding cities of the land a burning desire gripped him to travel to those places to see them for himself. In the last few years a new Extension of his express service came into being air express division and was con air press division and was consumed with a vision of himself speeding within a few hours across the continent from Ocean to Ocean Canada to the Gulf on the Fleet wrings of the roaring airliners into whose bulging holds his new express pieces were now consigned. Service extended abroad. Two years ago that service was extended into foreign Fields through an alignment Between railway express and pan american airways and exciting new names began to pass Over the dispatch desk Mexico and Panama Peru and Chile Haiti and Honduras Buenos Aires the fabulous Rio de Janeiro. When last year the clippers started plying across the Pacific to Hawaii Guam and far off Philippines Albert Grew More restless than Ever. Where heretofore he had contended himself with Day dreaming on the subject he now began to plague airline ticket offices. He became their most Active and persistent Prospect. He wrote for itineraries schedules photographs maps All of the detail that could be connected with an air trip to one place or another but in the end the dream would have to die because Albert Could never of a so Sci j Sny More than $300,000 spent in futile search Over world. Ten men lost their lives when the Schooner Rosabelle capsized in the Lake 15 Miles off Milwaukee 15 years ago. The Hulk w As towed into Racine Harbor and the cargo of Hardwood lumber was unloaded Here. A essential to the development taxes Are High enough now with of preliminary plans for the Cam out making any unnecessary a pain Are numerous committees proper nations.

A another 50 to 60 men Are engaged in developing the organization which will this year inaugurate the a unit plan of Community Here s an Appeal to stamp Pounders dear editor there a one Little thing that can be so very irritating and this is Chest organization and when Quot the the Best Way i know of to ask general sales army comprising these stamp killers to take it easy. Four divisions of men and one of you decide to write a card or women is fully organized Between address a letter in the Post office j go and 200 men and women will on either of the front tables and be giving unselfishly of their time get just in the Middle of a word in this soliciting unit and your pen goes jerking away. A fall told More than 300 men Why some unconscious so and and women will have Given of their so put a stamp on a card or letter i personal time and interest to carry with his fist. Its unnecessary to turn to Page 3, col. 3 j sock the poor postage stamp unmercifully to get results.

Broke away several times. There was quite a sea breaking j that Day but there had been comparatively Calm water for several Days before that. It was with great difficulty that the Rosabelle was righted by the Crew of the Cumberland and it was an exceedingly hazardous task to attach a line. For an hour or More the Cumberland was towed into this port nov. 2, 1921. For several Days it could not be determined what caused the destruction of the vessel but investigation showed that without doubt the Stem of the Craft was blown off when the gasoline tank in the Lazare exploded. The vessel was sighted lying on its Side by the Crew of a Milwaukee car ferry and reported to Milwaukee. The government tug towed the Craft but the portion Cumberland was dispatched to of the vessel to which the line 93 Racine persons apply to become u. S.
