Speaking of Murals

Detroit Free Press, February 13, 1934
If you recall the fat cow controversy at the County House then you might find this letter to the editor from Fred Gleason somewhat humorous. In it Mr. Gleason suggested that the Board of County Auditors should paint a mural of Edward H. Williams and John Cowan, proponents for skinnier cows and shaving millions off the county rolls, discussing such matters. The proposed murals for the Juvenile Detention Home were likely met with the same tactful resistance as the proposal to widen the beeves stalls at Eloise.
