Mr. Smith will be here again in June, to GOOD.CITIZENSHIP DUTIES We cannot claim the title "good citi- zen" unless we register and participate in the duty of choosing public officers. To be good citizens we must give some thought to public affairs. We cannot "let George do it" and have good gov- ernment. We may get the kind of government we deserve to get, but it will only by chance be good govern- ment. If we do not do our part to get good government then we have no "kick coming" if public affairs are not conducted to our liking. There is always one test of the availability of a candidate for office and that is: "would you trust his judg- ment and administration in the con- duct of your private affairs?" If you are satisfied on this point, you may feel fairly safe in voting for him. You may find you have made a mistake, because human nature is weak and human judgment fallible, but nine times out of ten you will have made a satisfactory choice. At any rate if anything goes wrong under such con- ditions you will have nothing to re- proach yourself with. We wonder how many citizens ever feel personal responsibility when things go wrong in governmental af- fairs. Do you ever stop to analyze what your part has been in the result ? If there is truth in the well known saying of Lincoln that this is a gov- ernment "of the people, by the people, for the people," then indeed the responsibility for good government must rest with the voters. And those who carelessly or wantonly refuse to do their part are not good citizens, no matter what else they may be. Too many individuals think that be- cause they are good merchants, good professional men, good family men or good ranchers, that they are good cit- izens, but no man is really a good citi- SPORT NOTES By A. Valon Alexander the Great and "Jake" Ja- cobs were out on the mound several times last week, and the "edification" of the local pitchers was almost com- plete. **S There is so much local enthusiasm among the ball fans that if a young- ster doesn't want to go up to Wrigley Field during the Cubs practice hours, the fond parents immediately look up the "Doctor Yourself at Home" book. That youngster's sick. *** Two and three thousand words every day is the quota for every baseball writer to send back to his newspaper in Chicago.Catalina is getting a lot of publicity. Ace Elliott at first base for the Cubs is making a creditable showing this season. He livens up the infield skirmishes. *** We are not going to mention the name of the baseball player who stood on the bath-house pier a couple of hours last Friday night "fishing for abalones." He was using a hunk of salt pork for bait. Well, Bill KiUefer had to take off his golf suit last Sunday when his team played the Catalina Cubs. Judge George Daul says that his friend "Bill" took Dumovich for the Catalina's off the mound so that he could beat us 4 to 1. But, we don't see what Bill Killefer had to do with Pitcher Dumo- vich when he was on the Catalina team. Anyway, it was a good game even if it did rain and the local team didn't get all the runs.
