THE United States Is entering up on an era of vastly improved liv ing conditions, both physical and moral, duo almost entirely to tho efforts of women workers in tho Na tional "Clean Up and Paint Up" cam paign, according to Allen W. Clark, chairman of tho national campaign bureau, in St Louts. It Is estimated that during 1915 moro than a million women took part In tho campaign for civic progress and human uplift which brightened tho lives and homes of millions from Ban gor, Me., to San Diego, Cal. "Tho growth and development of tho na tional "Clean Up nnd Paint Up" cam paign, has been in leaps and bounds slnco its inauguration," ho said. Individual women, women's clubs and women's organizations of all kinds for civic and moral improvement havo joined forces in this great work which reaches into practically every phaso of life. Letters havo poured in by tho thousand at tho bureau headquar ters from women Inquiring how to start tho work In their communities. Many of these indicated that tho old fashioned "parlor" variety of woman civic worker was dying a suro and natural death, and that serious-minded women were coming to realize more and moro overy day the bis work that is before them. , Women Led the Way. "I don't boliovo we realized tho far reaching extent- of the work wo had undertaken until tho women showed us," said Mr. Clark. "Tho permanent features of tho "Clean Up and Paint Up" idea were what seemed to gain their immediate indorsement. Their old Jdea of a spring housccleaning, which I believe, originated in New England, seems to have been dropped entirely, and tho women's organiza tions of tho New England states are among tho very hardest workers for an all-year-round policy." It would be an impossible task to namo in person even a small percen tage of tho women who havo dono ac tive and efficient work slnco tho na tional bureau inaugurated its system in tho spring of 1913.- Some few of them, however, are such womon aB Mrs. Clarence Baxter of Klrksvllle, Mo., vlco chairman of the civics de partment of the National Federation of Women's clubs; Mrs. E.

Mooro of St. Louis, past president of tho Na tional Federation of Wohien's clubs, and Mrs. Thomas Sherwln, chairman of tho department of streets and al leys of tfto Women's Municipal league of Boston. Much Work This Year. Tho work of tho bureau as planned for this year will be moro comprehen sive in its scope than before. It will Include everything that will beautify, improve sanitation and tend to the health of the community. Some of the things to bo done are the cleaning of streets, alloys, front and back yards, cellars and stables, removal of ashes, carting away of tin cans and all rub bish from vacant lots, burning or hauling away all garbage, filling in or CLEAN UP AND PAINT UP! FELLOW CITIZENS: Lcfc us get together and make this town of ours the most healthful nnd most inviting in the State. To do this we must organize our forces, map out our plans nnd get to work. Other cities and towns throughout the United State3 are finding the efforts along these lines arc bringing excellent results. If wo would have a healthful town we must clear our attics, collars, stables, sheds, yards, streets, alleys nnd vacant lots of trash, dirt, junk, filth, .garbage, rags, cans, bottles and weeds. "We must empty toilets, cover manure heaps, drain barn lots, fill up nnidholcs and slimy, ill-smelling ponds, open gutters, repair streets and burn rubbish. Then we must use soap and scrub brushes, brooms, rakes and shovels. We must throw lime freely about toilets and stables. Why? Because disease germs and germ-carrying insects, especially flies and mos quitoes, breed in filth and spread typhoid and con sumption when they enter our living rooms, alight on our food, or bite us while wo sleep. After the dirt is gone we must repair our buildingB 'and fix our fences and then lay on the paint 1 Paint everything that needs it, inside and out, for paint is the best known preservative and its brighten ing influence will make the dullest town in tho world look spick and span. Of course when we buy paint and lime we put money into the paint-dealer's and, lime-dealer's pockets. But if we get sick and die the doctor, drug gist, undertaker, sexton and tombstone man take our coin. Most folks would sooner spend theirs on paint and lime take your choice. Come on, now, folks. Let's call a meeting, form a Clean Up and Puint Up Club composed of men, women and children, and get on the job I The prize is worth it health and happiness. TOWNS TO AND PAINT UP doing nway with breeding places ol mosquitoes, flics or dlscaso germs, tho planting and trimming of trees and hedges, planting of flowors, and tho llboral use of paint on everything that needs it In many instances last year tho planning and superintending of tho work hns put entirely In tho hands of Bomo efficient women's organization in tho city or town. Tho flics nt tho national "Clean Up and Paint Up" campaign headquartors in St. Louis are full of records ot just such cases. Asslstanco In starting a campaign in any community in tho United States will bo given free of chargo by tho na tional bureau, Mr. Clark explained, upon rocolpt of a request from any woman or women's organization. Aid can also bo secured from Mrs. Clar onco Baxtor, chairman of tho Wom en's commltteo of tho national bureau, or from any of tho other civic leadora constituting the bureau's advisory committee. Be Perpetually at It. Mrs. Baxtor and Mrs. Senseney are helping women's clubs ovorywhoro to accomplish in their towns what was accomplished In St. Louis last year. Tho women's clubs conducted tho en tiro campaign in St' Louis, Boston and many smaller cities last year and in thousands of other placos they aro aiding tho mon effectively. Tho "open ing weeks!' in many places will bo only tho beginning of perpetual "Clean Up and Paint Up" campaigns. "They will be of Immense valuo," wroto Mrs. Baxter recently, "In arousing civic consciousness in practical sanitation and conservation and In actual busi ness activity in tho community. Many people spend hundreds of dollars fur nishing their homos and only an occa sional caller gets to admiro thorn. A much smallor nmount spont on a coat of paint for the exterior, a general cleaning up of tho premises and a few flowers would give plcaBuro to thou sands of passers-by and their friends aa well." Both of these women aro in dally correspondence with loading club women, in several thousand women's clubs, In tho effort to make the local "Clean Up and Paint Up" campaigns the foundation upon which to build and conduct various othor community betterment activities in which serious minded club women everywhere are so interested. Newspapers Give Help. Editors of nowspapors from coast to coast havo taken up this work of tho women and aro aiding them in both the news and editorial columnB and most of them aro unanimous In declaring that the chief valuo of tho work Is that It alms at permanent re form and continued effort. Ministers aro also aiding tho women in their work by preaching appro priate sermons on civic cleanliness and kindred topics. Tho wifo of ono earnest, hard working clergyman In a southern town, in which tho campaign was in progress, wrote in a letter to the national bureau that If more peo ple wero as Blncero in their religion as they are in this "Clean Up and Paint Up" movement tho world would bo a much bettor place In which to live.
