Lathrop, of tho de partment of exhibits of tho American City Bureau, has written to several well-known Richmond men comment ing upon the articles on "City plan ning" by Mayor George Ainslle, which appeared In Tho Times Dispatch of last Sunday and In the Chamber of Commerce monthly "Richmond." Stress Is laid on the fact that Mayor Ainslle says San Francisco might have saved $2?>,000,000 had a comprehensive city plan been adopted; and the sug gestion naturally follows In the mind of tho readers of tho letter that Rich- j tnond may bo able to save a few mil- | lions as well by the same method. The j letter fellows: ' "New York, December 21, 1914. "1 notice In 'Richmond.' a monthly i publication of the Richmond Chamber 1 of Commerce, an article by tho Hon- , orable (iftorge Ainslle, Mayor of your city, on 'City Planning: What Is It'." This article is tine of the best which has been written by any one in the t'nlted States. If you have not road it, 1 take the liberty of calling It to your attention notwithstanding: Mayor Ainslle has no knowledge of my action In doing so. The article has been read by a number of persons versed in the city planning science In this* city, and has been universally commented on as ' being a very able treatise. "Permit me to say that 200 Ameri- ! can cities, many cities in Canada and most of tho cities 1 n Kurope, as well as many In South America, have taken ?ip scientific city planning as a detl- , nite policy. 1 do not mean to say that ; all these cities have reached their ulti- ] mate goal In respect to city planning, ! hut that in each one of them tho move- j ment Is well deilned. and in many of ; them has progressed beyond the ex- | pectatlon of those who about seven 1 years ago originated the movement In thin country. "Tho city-planning exhibition of this ! bureau is the outgrowth of these ac- ! tlvities. It represents the co-ordinated > effort of great engineers and architects, ( housing experts, real estate scientists, j transportation and factory experts, and ! sociologists. These cover the Held of ! effort. The exhibition is not theoretic, ' but is a logical and analytical, practi cally worked-out representation, in sequential form, of the science of city planning, showing the concrete results achieved in 200 American cities and the chief cities of Kurope. "It was i>i connection with our ex hibition, under my direction. In Oak land and in San Francisco, Cal., that the cltv engineer. M. M. O'Shaughncssy. made the assertion referred to in Mayor Alnslle's article, namely, that city planning would have saved San Fran cisco practically all the $20,000,000 of improvements now being made. I made a personal study of San Fran cisco, and 1 shall be glad at some future time to explain to you in detail what Mr. O'Shaughnessy meant. "Sincerely yours, "JOHN 12.

Just as they were about to wive up in despair, a 'possum was sighted on the doorstep. It was fat and lazy, and a well-aimed stick of j wood designed for the tire, laid him I low.
