These measures are recommended for municipal enactment, with the suggestion that in every case they be examined by competent local counsel for changes in form, or in substance if necessary, dictated by special constitutional, legislative, or charter considerations.
It is manifestly impossible to prepare forms of ordinances which will, in the original wording, exactly fit the varying local requirements. The purpose of the several ordinances contained in this pamphlet is only to suggest in substance desirable and effective legislation. Changes in titles, enacting clauses, penalty provisions, and other formal or administrative details generally may be found necessary.
It is presumed that every city has general legislation prohibiting prostitution, pandering, and the keeping of disorderly houses, and the suggested measures are supplemental to such general legislation.
Each of these suggested ordinances has been in successful operation in different cities and has been found effective in its particular phase of the general fight on prostitution as the greatest cause of the spread of venereal diseases.
Therefore, it is further suggested that alterations of text be confined as much as possible to purely formal considerations.
