How to'Right a Civic Wrong M;d- o.ear,
A few days age. the editor of The
Mid-Ocean received an anonymous let-
ter, signed only "Taxpayer". which re-
ferred to alleged ineffciency in the
street cleaning department of the
Board of Works and the alleged
idleness of its workmen in a general
way. While it is acknowledged that
the subject is a matter of public in-
terest and that the public has a right
to know the facts regarding any al-
leged waste of public funds, The Mid-
Ocean feltrhat tlie newspaper was not
the medium whereby reform might be
effected. If needed, and so referred the
entire matter to the proper quarter.
A prompt and courteous reply from
the Head of .the Department concern-
