Those Alexandria Jokes
Won't Be Appropriate
In Vaudeville Any More
ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 18. The
near comedian who used to worm a
laugh out of his audience with a
merry jeat like. "I spent a week In
Alexandria one afternoon last week,"
or something: equally as humorous,
must now find some other placo for a
butt or write himself down as dense
ly ignorant of what is happening in
this neck of the woods.
Several years ago Alexandria yawn
ed and stretched and commenced to
wake up. Today Alexandria is wide
awake and looking to a brighter fu
ture than any of its inhabitants, past
or present, ever pictured in their
most optimistic moments.
That the war had something to do
with putting the tdwn on the map
again cannot be denied, the war hav
ing been responsible for the estab
lishment of the yards of the Virginia
Shipbuilding Corporation, now the
most important enterprise in that
section of Virginia. These yards, lo
cated at Alexandria through the un
tiring efforts of Charles C. Carlin, un
til recently Representative in Con
gress from the Eighth district of Vir
ginia, employ approximately 3,000
Pay Roll of $100,000.
The weekly pay roll Is said to ex
ceed $100,000, which accounts in great
measure for the fact that the depos
it in the four banks of the city have
Increased 300 per cent within the
year. The yards of the Virginia
Shipbuilding Corporation cost more
than 52.000,000 and are permanent.
Two 0.400-ton steel carro ships, the
Gunston Hall and the Betsy Bell, have
been completed and launched In the
last few months, and a third ship of
tne same type, the Veneda, will slip
down the ways next Saturday. From
then on, officials pf the corporation
figure, a. ship will be turned out about
every six weeks.
Within two years the oooulation of
Alexandria has jumped from about
15,000 to more than 30,000, and many
predict that within five years the city
will boast of 50.000 inhabitants. With
the rapid increase In population the
housing problem has had to be met.
This at first was a jolt to the natives,
but they have now awakened to the
necessities of the situation, and many
old residences are being converted into
apartment houses, while fully 100
modern houses, to meet various de
mands, are now in course of construc
tion in the city and suburbs.
Realty Men Active.
Real estate brokers report an active
demand for business properties, and
though values and rentals have en
hanced, Alexandria has been singular
ly free from the complaint of profiteer
ing. That the members of the city coun
cil are alive to the situation is indi
cated by the fact money is being ap
propriated at every meeting of that
body for the extension of sewers and
the improvement of streets. Another
public improvement financed by the
city last week is a public school build
ing for colored children which will
cost in the neighborhood of fflO.000.
The building will be a two-story brick
structure surrounded by ample play
grounds, and will be practically fire
proof. Handsome sohool buildings, in
cluding one for the high school, have
been erected for the white children in
the last few years.
The establishment of Camp Hum
phreys, which will be a permanent
military post, near Alexandria, has
aroused interest in sanitation, and the
city council last week made provision
for a health department that will com
pare with those of the largest cities
in the country. In addition to a
health officer who will devote his en
tire time to the duties of the office,
the department will' maintain an as
sistant health officer, who will serve
as sanitary Inspector of the city: &
bacteriologist, a public health nurse,
and a clerk. Modern appliances for
the health department have been pur
chased, and quarters are now being
fitted up in the city hall.
The Alexandria Chamber of Com
merce, composed of wide-awake busi
ness men, is bending every effort to
advance the business interests of the
city and lends encouragement to any
, worthy enterprise that will add to the
city's commercial advancement.
