How Much is a Dollar Worth?
As most of you know, a petition is being circulated
" round town in protest to the city garbage pickup—a
petition which many persons have signed without fully
'mowing the contents.
The main reason for the petition, I undo*stand, is the
disapproval of the charge of $1.00 per m<, :ta v:V eh is to
be added to householders water bills for i1 ^ * i-' "t'
picking up their garbage, trash and cuttinrs every week.
But these same people expressed their disapproval
when there was no charge whatsoever for the service.
Some persons do not like change of any kind, especially
when that change means progress or growth for their
town. Many are perfectly satisfied with everything re-
gaining the same as it has been for past 30 cr CO
yea:s. They are used to it that way ar.-4 a change upsets
The only trouble with that philosophy is that nothing
can ever stay the same. It must go forward and if it
doesn't go forward the only way left is back or down or
That is what will happen to Saint Jo if its citizens can-
t have the foresight to look to the future, to plan our
community to meet the challenges and tests of progress
around us and to do everything in our power to see that
Saint Jo is a better place for our grandchildren to live
than it was for us.
Healthy ambition is the backbone of America. Com-
placency and apathy are the seeds to destruction. Should
all Americans become like some of our dear citizens of
Saint Jo, all that I could say would be the futile prayer,
"God help our country." It would be futile because God
helps those who help themselves and that is what we're
expected to do.
Saint Jo is prettier, cleaner and more attractive to
v'Htors (and home folks for that matter) now than at
/ other time in its history. There is no trash scattered
U about, no ashes and soot flying through the air and no
Lideous site of a dump ground on the lovely outskirts of
It is good to drive around town and see garbage cans
with lids concealing the trash and no big, ugly barrels.
It is good to know that our children are protected from
the germs and bacteria which infiltrates any town where
garbage and tripe are left uncovered and where trash
blows about. It is good to know that unless someone vio-
lates the burning ordinance, there is very little danger of
a fire caused from burning trash, a fire which could dam-
age property or even endanger lives.
All of these good things we have had free of charge for
over a year. Now the city finds that it can no longer op-
erate this service without a small fee. Are we willing to
give up one of the best things that has happened to Saint
Jo in a century, because of a one dollar bill?
