Roy. Bateman's Proposals- Rev. Bateman has been a resident of Youngstown fourteen years. In the portion of the letter address- ed to the populace generally Mr. Bateman says: " want to propose to Youngstown, my city, an armistice. Let it on this anniversary of the Armistice of the great World War suspend hostilities and let it declare a truce. "I would that my city might have peace, instead of an attitude of sus- picion, of bitterness and hate; let its people cultivate an attitude of good will. Let each seek to understand the other, capitalist and laborer, for- eigner and native American, black ant white man, rich and poor, learned and unlearned. Protestant and Catholic, Jew and Gentile. The life of your people is knitted together by many common interests. Your hope or o- day as well as for the future is in a sympathetic understanding of the va- rious groups within your midst and an attitude of good will." In the portion of the letter ad- dressed to Mr. Scheible, Rev. Bate- man said : "Mr. Scheible, I congratulate you. You have been highly honored by your fellow citizens. You have been elected mayor of the city by a sub- stantial majority in a campaign that was hard fought and in which there were many candidates. Well you may feel honored and justly proud You] are the mayor of all the people, not I the mayor of any particular group, I but the mayor of all. You deserve] the support and the cooperation of I all in every worthy and honest effort, i It shall be my earnest prayer and should be that of all the people that your administration will mark the be- ginning of a new era in the life of our city." Suggestion to Press To the press, Mr. Bateman suggests: "Let us have a corner known as edi- tors' corner, where you sit down at a table, eat together and talk over the problems of the community and the relation of the press to the same. It might be a little difficult for you at first, you might need a moderator, but it would become easier in time and would be wortl while for the city's good. You have much influ- ence on the city's mind, in influening current thought. You can do much to make :for peace, for the attitude of good will, for community faith, for cooperation and for a broad construc- tive program. Let us have fewer scare and sensational headlines and more headlines that tend to unite the people, and to strengthen our morale. Let us have less criticism 'and more commendation. Such a policy per- sistently followed on your part would do much to give our city a new mifid and spirt." Catholic Elected Judge That the thought of the entire elec- torate was not entirely directed to- ward the alleged Klan candidate, is shown by the election of JoSeph L. Heffernan, a young attorney ,to the post of municipal judge. udge Hef- fernan polled 22,000 votes, a greater number than that given for Mr. Schei- ble, and 9,000 more than his oppon- ent. Judge Heffernan is a brother of Rev. James A. Heffernan, one of the priests of the diocese of Cleveland. He is a native of Youngstown and has had much success here as a newspaper man and lawyer.
