THE NECESSARY POOR
Cleveland's superintendent of
Associated Charities is sad aftd
depressed because" the Christmas'
season doesn't get a livelier .nvoVe-
on itself. "I'm devoutly hoping
for snow," he says. 'It seems
easier to appreciate what Christ
inas means 4ro .the p'oor whehMtis
cold and snowy."
It is a long time, sinfccwe've
seen a better exhibition thn this
of the spirit of associated, me
chanical charity. In order that
guch organized charity shall live ;
andpay salaries for administra
tion, we must have the suffering
poor.- Hence, turn on the bliz
zard, the famine, or the epidemic
that will cause the suffering.
Heaven help Cleveland's asso
ciated charities -which are cast
down because Jack Frost isn't at
tending' to his business of freez
ing the poor! But we'd like to
ask that superintendent if he has
tried tomorrow some of the poor
from Buffalo or Detroit to tide
hhn over while the Cleveland
poor aren't suffering pro$rly.
