Stutistics show that in towns and cities where they have
Sunday amusements there are practically no arrests. When
we say innocent amusements we mean innocent amusements.
We know of a town in Southwest Texas where they have had
Sunday amusements from almost time immemorial, that rents
its city jail to a grain firm in which hay is stored.
Booze has never built up business, nor boomed towns.
The fellow that is always seeing something under the
chip generally finds it, antl sometimes finds something he is
not looking for. Suspicions generally foster distrust, and a
distrustful man is one that bears watching.
The report of the Texas safety council published in
another section of the rasper is alarming. The speed law, the
bright head light law snould be enforced. Instead of fines
„ , jail sentences should be given. .Put a few of the speed rd

FREE MAIL DELIVERY
Does Borger want free mail delivery?
Yes, Borger wants free mail delivery.
Borgen can get free mail delivery, provided Borger com-
plies with the demands of the postoffice department.
To obtain free mail delivery, Borger must have paved!|
streets and sidewalks. The. streets need not be paved, but
good sidewalks are necessary. Those sidewalks must bei
either concrete or brick. Borger has population enough to !
get tree mail delivery and would have had it ere this but j
for the fact that Borger did not have sidewalks. Those side-;
walks must be in the residential section.
Another thing necessary for Borger to have to get free
mail delivery and that is to have its streets designated by
signs and its houses numbered. How can a mail carrier de- \
liver mail if he cannot find the house. Borger is too large
not to have its streets marked and its houses numbered.
A newcomer stops Mr. Citizen and asks where John Jones,
a prominent citizen lives. Mr. Citizen will have to take at
least 20 minutes to tell the newcomer how to. find Mr. John
Jones, whereas, if the streets were designated by si^ns and
th houses numbered, it would not take five minutes. The visitor
could be given accurate information, now he cannot be given ]
We all want to see Borger grow. We want to see Bor-;
ger develop. Street signs and numbered houses are evidence ^
of progression. It will not be long before Borgr will have a
paved Main street. We want to see free mail delivery, and ,
to get that we want to see steps taken to have the streets de-
signated and houses numbered. Until we get what the" gov- j
ernmerit demands, Borger can grow to a population of 100,-
000 and then be without free mail delivery.
It's up to the citizenship to get busy.
GO TO CHURCH TODAY
Go to church today and hear a good sermon, it won't hurt
you, even though you may not have a congregatiin here of
your own denomination. Every man, woman and child needs
to have spiritual food. If you hear a good tolerant sermon, i:
will make you feel better. If the preacher preaches the doc-
trine of love, it will help you. We do not believe in creed
sermons, because we are of the opinion that its deed and not
creed the road to heaven. We do not believe in finding fault
with the other fellow's faith. There is too much good in all
religions to find fault.'with any other. We have a due regard
for the other fellows faith. Our religion teaches us that, and
we pray God to strengthen us to have due regard for the
other fellow's belief.
Innocent Sunday amusements are great things. They
