FIRST LOVES
By Felix Diesenberg
Nineteenth Installment
"The greatest danger, sir,” John
interposed, "lies in the absolutely
inadequate sewer system of the
lower portion of the city. Old
brick conduits fifty and seventy
five years old, running to the river.
The problem of drainage on Man
hattan is simple, but the fact that
drainage should all be into dis
>osal works, into scientific plants
for the recovery of the magnesia,
potash, phosphoric acid, chlorine,
oxide of iron and nitrogen, all
combined in almost ideal propor
tion for use as fertilizer. m This
seems to place the problem beyond
the ability of our civic talent. A
spoonful may be dipped out here
and there and screened, but the
great works, the scientific works
that would yield a fortune to the
city, these are only part of the
plan.”
"Yes, John, the plan.” Almon
Strauss seemed to waken up from
a study. “After all, the plan must
come first. Let us get the plan.”
"I have had a theory,” Almon
Strauss went on, "a theory that the
city will work its way out of the
mire.” He stopped, paused for a
moment.
"They say that my people are
naturally dwellers in cities. It may
be so. But the Hebrews are an an
cient race, a race that has held its
tenets, has kept its faith for cen
turies. If we are to be dwellers in
cities, we must look to our houses,
to our future habitations. I have
lived in! the slums—I know the
lower East Side—You may not
know it, but I once stood on the
curb of Hester Street and watched
a fight. I have known Fighting
Lipvitch!”_
I John sprang to his feet. Almon
Strauss sat silent. "Pipvitch—
Channon1 Pipvitch?” John asked.
"John, I knew you there. I
knew of you when you fought on
the Bowery. My old friend, Pip
vitch, is dead, you know. When
the Tri-Plex shirtwaist factory
burned down, Pipvitch had locked
the doors—the shock killed him.”
"Please go on,” Hafboard re
minded him after a1 lengthy pause,
“with your vision of the city.”
After a moment or two, Almon
Strauss continued in low, even
tones, "I see a tremendous city ris
ing in the future, a city of such
magnitude that men today would
marvel at the sight. The saving
in heat, in transportation of sup
plies, in the waste motions of life
will compensate for the great con
gestion of men. Everything will
be centralized in zones. People will
live in groupes close to their work,
with parks and playgrounds scat
tered in between. There is no val
ue like the value of numbers, no
potentiality like the mass potenti
ality of men, and the city is the
natural conclusion to which we
must come as we remain longer on
this earth. The city now is crude,
cruder than the plumbing in King
Alfred’s hut. We are just begin
ning to see the faintest gleams of
light. The country iot, food, for
freedom, and for play, the city for
economy, fcir con,centiVtion, for
study and for education. And by
the city I mean the great open
hearted city with trees and grass,
and fountains splashing in the sun.
The city with clean streets, with
ample homes, with every furnish
ing to make life worth living.
, "Down below, those foolish folk
talk of birth control. What do
they know of the agony? What do
they know of building? What of
planning far ahead? I may never
see the beginning, but, John, and
you, too, Harboard, you may see.
you may know.
"But I am afraid of the city. I
am afraid we have planned too far
ahead. People are getting confus
ed, and rents go higher and higher,
in am closing up this place and ex
pect to leave. But my heart is
here. God help the city.”
Where the recurring storm
centers of wild conventions and
campaigns raged amid sprouts of
promise, old Madison Square Gar
den stands only in memory like a
palace in Spain. Steel and tile
tower high, and higher.
It was in this environment that
Harboard and John paused at the
soutkern end of a walk along the
Avenue, crowded with the great
rush of a mid-season afternoon.
The friends were given to Jong
tramps, to the diversion) of ex
tended explorations in the city.
Again great things were hap
pening, again the city was restless
and uncertain in its ancient har
ness. Drastic methods were being
proposed, merchants’ associations
and civic bodies were stirring.
Great agitations were taking pub
he voice, lhe huge muddle must
asume some proper form. Civic
pride was suffering a revival, new
forces were stepping to the fore,
new ideals of service were again
lifting above the tumult of the
town.
They paused on the sharp oasis
south of Twenty-fifth Street be
tween Fifth Avenue and Broad
way. smoking churning rush of
cars and buses hemmed them in.
Across the way the old Amen Cor
ner had ended its career. On the
broad stretch of the Avenue, to
ward the park, arches of triumph
and of victory once reared their
fragile forms and only photographs
remain. Dewey returned there
from the victory at Manila. Great
hosts of men marched by in ’17—
men with set faces, young and
tense—drafted from the youth of
the Metropolis, tramping onward
in the falling snow.
A great void of doubt had come
to Harboard and to John, a sick
ening doubt. To the east, they
saw the great clock hands of the
tower pointing to seven, and back
on Fifth Avenue the rush of mot
or cars came to a sudden stop
with a screech of brakes when the
i»i » i • i n 1 f .1 r
mgii icu ngiiL iiitmcu uii me
fie towers above the gas-charged
street.
John Breen stood, as men have
stood in the twilight of thick tro
pic jungles, gazing at the beauty
of the cobra, unaware of its signi
ficance. Harboard struck his cane
on the concrete walk, a loud tap.
John looked at him, and smiled,
smiled with uncertainty.
Josephine Lambert had just sped
by them, bareheaded, her dinner
wrap resplendent, her face animat
ed, beautiful. She was already far
to the south, on her way to dinner
in one of the fine old surviving
homes of Washington Square.
Thomas Hetherington, the great
editor, had pieced together much
of the crazy mosaic history of the
city. He knew and deducted, and
imagined, and held in the files of
his little office bundles of surpris
ing information. Once, when talk
ing with Judge Kelly, an agreeable
old gentleman, himself asking
more than he imparted, Thomas
Hetherington was prepared to sub
mit a certain train of circumstan
ces, and to ask for the few places
where time had failed to fill in
facts. He was on the verge of
springing one of the really great
sensations of the city.
"My dear Mr. Hetherington,
what you say may be so. And
then again it may not. You say
you have talked with Mr. Breen.
What did he say?”
"He called it a lot of interesting
conjecture.”
"'But I believe it’s so,’ I insist
ed.
" 'Well, if it’s so, why don’t I
go out and claim my own?’ he
asked.”
"Well, why don’t he?” Judge
Kelly looked puzzled.
"Perhaps it isn’t so,” Hether
ington mused. "But I have a state
ment from Jules, old Jules, the
butler, discharged by Miss Lam
bert, or resigned, I don’t know
which. He’s now proprietor of
the Club Daffodil. How about
that? You’ve read it?”
"My dear Mr. Hetherington, it
may simply be an attempt to get
back at Miss Lambert. Don’t be
lieve everything you find out.”
"Well, there’s a big story there.”
"My dear sir, this city is full of
big stories, stories so big the nov
elists can’t open their jaws wide
enough to bite them.”
