Address all communications to The Enterprise
Town lioard Facing Many Problems
The new town -commissioners will
begin their duties Monday.
The ,work which they will be culled
upon to perform will be a tax en them.
First of all .they must pay interest on
the bonded debt of the town. I'hen
they must levy a tax to meet the
( iterating need- of the town a.- well

nothing but brines.* judgment, and
se. far as some think, are the only
duties of the lioard.

Heard, which is even mor j
Mian the first, is law enforcement.
Not only is it more important but!
it is a much harder task. Who ever
undertakes the task of law enforce

quires a constant Hglit for an itfeul-
The only way to fully prevent the
breaking of the law or the lowering ,
of morals is to have no law and no j
morals. However, since we all want j
I oth, then the enforcement of the I
h-w lies largely with the town officers. j
There are so, mu.iy laws and so
many ways to violate them that it is i
brad for the best citizens to keep i
them perfectly. The automobile law
is perhaps the hardest of all laws to
keep perfectly. Some find ifliurd to
