ternoon it was found that the town
truck had been making nine trips a
day in -co-operation with the clean

week in observance of the National
Week which is set aside each spring.
Last year the truck made 21 trips
daily during the week, with the small
truck, which carried only one-fourth
as much as the new large truck. At
half the cost, more than three-fourths
as much rubbish has. been 'carried off
