VOL. 5-NO. 55
WHOSE MAIN STREET?
The* fact that there ure a few'—and in fact that are very
few—who have raised the objection to any of the proposed
bond money being spent on down town streets or alleys on the
ground that “Main street property owners should pay for it
if they wish dow'n town alleys or streets paved,’’ raises the
question as to just whoea itreets are they anyhow?
That anyone eould raise such an objection, is beyond
our ability to comprehend. Who uses the downtown streets
anyhow? Is not our Main street the most used street in the
city? Is there any one who,* —
while walking on it or driving

And again what will contri-
bute to the general health
of all the city more thau a clean
down town alley section? As it
is now trucks actually get stuck
in some of the alleyways back
of business houses. The condi-
tion of the alleys during bad
weather forces trucks deliver-
ing goods to our merchants to
be hurtled from our Main street.
* This in turn brings about a
more congested condition and
hinders the orderly traffic of
other cars on Main street. Pav-
ing alleys and turning much
traffic into them will relieve
Main street of a great deal of
its congestion. It will make it
possible then, and the city wdl
enforce all truck loading and
unloading to bo done from the
Aside from the removal ot
'congestion of traffic is still
the better phase of it being a
sanitary move. Take any of
the rains we have been having
and the sight of Main street
being turned into an open
drain-ditch with refuse and dis-
eased matter floating on the
surface of the streets, is enough
to cause us to take immediate
steps toward a sanitary sewer
and drainage system.
At present the storm sewer

street spreading its possible
Uow can any one reason that
a step to improve this condi-
tion by a storm sower and pro-
per alleys is uot something
that inures to the general good
of all of us? A germ-laded
steram washing down Deni-
son’s main street and alleys is
dangerous to all alike. Il is a
condition that should be reme-
died at the earliest possible
moment and we have that
chance now with the floating of
the proposed bond issue.
Speaking of traffic enforcing,
how about those cars, the driv-
ers of which’seem to think that
because they arc in a public
service .they have an unchal-
lenged right to speed about
shuttle-like through traffic ov-
er the city at a high rate of
speed. Is the taxi business so
important and vested with any
such special priviledges?
There is still a place for the
young man who knows how
to walk into a place of business
and properly present himself
to the man who is looking for
a new1 employee. So many
