Excerpt from Technical World Magazine, Vol. 21: March, 1914
Not so today in Dayton. The next morning at four o'clock a gang'of men were on the street with a hose and when business began the streets were as clean as on a summer's day.
As far as the big policy of the city government is concerned, such a thing is a mere detail, but it is significant of a quality which Waite is building into the Dayton government and which the old council government did not possess. While Dayton's government gives the than city manager almost an empire of control fag: and power, it shears him of all the divine rights of politics and 'makes him as de pendent upon the people whom he serves as was the old ofiiceholder upon the board of aldermen. He sits at the head of a mighty corporation of stockholders, holders of the privilege of citizenship, and his fitness is.judged by the dividends of service that he declares.
