The San Antonio Light calls out its rival, the Express, for not printing a quote from Raymond Fosdick, Chairman of the War Camp Activities commission in yesterday’s paper. Fosdick noted that while liquor and vice are problems in Dallas, Ft. Worth and Houston, San Antonio has done a good job of cleaning up. The quote omitted by the Express was: “This legislation is very important and we hope it will be enacted. We have an ideal condition now at San Antonio. The visit here of Sheriff Tobin has been conducive of much good and he is doing fine work and is being aided by the co-operation of citizens; but we are having trouble at Houston and Fort Worth. Bootlegging is at the bottom of all vice in camps and once it is wiped out conditions will improve. I have no complaint as to San Antonio.”
