GIVES A FINE LECTURE
Shows Pictures of Public Retreats
for Children ami Urges Exten
sion of Idea Here.
An interesting lecture on public
playgrounds was given last evening
at Unity hall in Davenport by L&e R.
Hanmer of New York, who was
brought here under the auspices of the
Tri-City Social Service club. Mr.
Hanmer is the field secretary of the
Playgrounds Association of America
and secretary of the Russell Sage
Foundation, and he is well qualified to
talk on the subject of playgrounds.
His lecture was an illustrated one,
n which about 100 pictures of play
grounds throughout the country were
shown. He characterized the play
ground as a place where great work
in character building can be done un
der the proper surroundings, and he
advocated their establishment in every
city of any considerable size in the
United States. According to his idea,
a playground should not be merely an
open lot in which children can play,
but should be a place equipped with
such things as swimming pools and
apparatus which will really interest
those who. make use of the place. He
showed pictures of such playgrounds
in different cities and spoke highly of
the good they are doing.
I P School tirOIIIKlH.
The speaker realized that such play
grounds can noi ne esiaDiisneci 111 a
clay, and accordingly he suggested that
until such time as they can be given I
to the children, the playgrounds of the
public schools be opened to the ch:l-1
dren more. At present the children!
are not allowed to use the school play
grounds after school or on Saturdays,
as the authorities fear they will break
windows and do other damage when
they are not under supervision. Mr.
Hanmer suggested that a teacher be
engaged to act as a supervisor and to
put in her time after school watching
over the children who wish to us-;
May Adopt SnftfcrMlou.
A large audience listened (o the ad
dress and agreed with the speaker in
regard to the need for playgrounds.
The listeners were from all of the three
cities, and it is possible that a move
ment will be started soon to secure
permission of the school authorities to
open the school grounds after school.
