UUU, $252,000, $97,000, $45,000, $23,
000 and $15,000, yet a special super
visor is provided for each of these
branches. If the board wishes so to
do it finds it possible, and presumably
with the superintendent's approval,
to provide a special supervisor for a
. given field of work irrespective of its
volume and the appropriation there
a for. We believe that a special super-
visor should have charge of commu
nity center work alone, with its
$100,000 appropriation. In our pre
vious letter we specifically recom
mended that vocational guidance be
linked up with the prevocational and
industrial class work already carried
on in the schools, and that the school
lunches be placed under the super
visor of household arts an associa
tion whose fitness would seem to
need no argument.
"As to 'business efficiency': This
sounding phrase should not be allow
ed to cloud the issue. The person
who will be most likely to administer
$100,000 in an efficient manner for
community centers will be the per
son who at the start is competent
, concerning such activities, not the
person who has had no special ex
ecutive experience in those activities
and must learn the job.
"We are reliably advised that no
less than five different persons of na
tional or wide reputation in regard
j to community center or closely re
lated work preferred formal or in
formal applications during recent
months for this position when it
should be definitely established. Yet,
so far as we can ascertain, no one of
these persons has received encour
agement or consideration from the
"Community centers in Chicago
g should be more successful In future
than they have been in the past To
that end we urge as the paramount
demand that their direction be placed
in the hands of the best qualified per
son who can be secured by a test
open to all and based on demonstrat
ed special fitness."
BERNSTORFF LEAVES AND LAST
TIE WITH GERMANY SEVERS
New York, Feb. 14. Under heavy
guard. Count von Bernstorff, depart
ing German ambassador, and his
suite, arrived in Hoboken early to
day and was immediately escorted to
pier of liner Frederik VIII. and went
aboard ship. At 2 o'clock this after
noon the liner will head down the bay
and the last formal step in the break
of diplomatic relations between this
country and Germany will be com
plete. The German envoy and Ger
man consuls from various parts of
the country, together with other
Teutonic diplomatic representatives,
will be enroute back to Berhn.
"Take off your hat," a photograph
er yelled unceremoniously at the de
parting envoy on the way to the pier.
Bernstorff removed the soft fe
dora. "Put it on," yelled another. And
the count did.
Just as all the photographers had
finished a moving picture operator
dashed up breathlessly.
"Cofint," he said. "I didn't get
you. Would you take off your hat
Bernstorff smiled and obligingly
removed the hat. He posed in spite
of objections from his wife while the
movie film made its historical record.
"You'll take cold," Mme. Bernstorff
objected, and solicitously she turned
up the collar of his coat.
Reporters clamored for an inter
view but the ambassador, still smil
ing, waved them away.
"I have nothing to say," he said.
Before noon three police boats
were patrolling the river, keeping
close guard over the Frederik VIII.
No vessels were permitted to ap
proach the liner. It was planned to
have the police boats escort the liner
down the bay.
New York. Five great engineer
ing societies ask their 30,000 mem
bers to enroll for army service, so
they can be on call if needed.
