LONG LIVE TIES PEOPLE Charles Dorroneo Hodge Jr. OUR PUBLIC ,-.C. SYSTEM ENTIRELY IGNORED Sanitation the world.over is one of the key programs on which riany a country health depends, in order to prevent harmful^descases from endangering the putlie health. Seeing the most delapedatcd and.deplorable condition in which our Public Y/.C. arc kept leaves us to think that our Island-council really do not corprchend the word "Sanitation". These conditions however seem very much to be in conflict with a few regulation exsistingat the present moment. One knows if he or she is desirious of building a house no matter how small it may be' it has to be equipped with flush toilet and bath. This is very good even though sometimes it is ... ..... a strain. But it is somev.-hat alarming to know our Island council has not done or even try to do anything about the present unsanitary condition of the public W.C^t s \ it is to shameful to go into details outlining these conditions, because everyone knows what is done with the mess here in this town. It really reflects hard on those in power for if bur town was set."up differently one could say, well, patiente. But knowing that our town is partly surrounded by water which' makes the efforts much easier for those in power, vhile it is still neglected we must really stop and think. It is very obvious these days that many have not only lost their noses, but also the ways to help the public. E.
