Suggestions for Making Our Town a Better Home
Town-Chairman of National Bureau
Says Start Now and Keep It Up
the Year 'Round.
SINCE Hercules diverted the river
to renovate the Augean stables
"Clean Up" has had its place in
the world's vernacular. With Spring
the desire to refurbish comes sub
consciously into the hearts of men
and women, and communities. But
without direction and sustained effort
the expression of that desire, in the
form of the ordinary "Clean Up Day"
or "Week," is apt to result in a super
ficial sally against filth.
Years ago Allen W. Clark, a St. Louis
editor, made up his mind that this
natural "Clean Up" instinct could be
turned to account, that it could be
developed into a real campaign work
ing toward definite ideals and accom
plishing permanent results. And so,
in May 1912, Mr. Clark founded the
National "Clean Up and Paint Up"
Campaign Bureau, with headquarters
in St. Louis. He hoped that a thor
ough-going movement, national in its
scope and practical in its principles,
might take the place of the "annual
bath" idea as expressed in the old-time
"clean up day" or "week."
A National Civio Movement.
For four years the scope of the Na
tional Bureau's service has rapidly ex
tended until this year it is co-operat
ing with more than 6,000 local com
munities in the organization and di
rection of real "Clean Up and Paint
Up" campaigns, not "days," or
"weeks." Continuous campaigns for
homes and hometowns beautiful, sani
tary and sate, conducted by permanent
committees, and involving the co-op
eration of city and town officials, club
women, commercial organzsations, the
children, fire prevention interests, all
business men and property owners,
is the goal aimed at by all of the
National Bureau's propaganda.
Mr. Clark declares that the bane of
any community is the citizen who
lacks even a semblance of interest in
the community, and that, strange U
it may seem in a democracy, absence
of this interest seems to be pretty gen
erally prevalent in the average Ameri
can community. Such a citizen would
have "The Town" or "The City," what
ever those names may signify when
the body of citisens is elimiated,
keep the streets and alleys clean, pr'
serve the public and individual health,
eliminate nuisances, make everything
in town spick and span and satisfao
tory-while the citizen sits back and
looks on.
The real "Clean Up and Paint Up"
campaign, organized on the plans of
the National Bureau, gives everyone
something definite to do to help make
their hometown beautiful, sanitary
and safe. And the campaign's edu
cational influence should work stead
ily the year 'round and year after
year, automatically eliminating many
nuisances caused formerly by careless
ness or thoughtlessness of property
owners and tenants.
A Suggestion for Our Town.
The methods for accomplishing all
of this suggested by the National Bu
reau are well illustrated by a brief de
scription of the local campaign or
*anization in St. Louis. With various
adaptations this St. Louis plan has
been found practicable in any city, no
matter how large or small.
The entire campaign is under the
direction of the Continuous St. Louis
"Clean Up and Paint Up" Campaign
Committee, of which Charles M. Tal
bert, director of streets and sewers,
is chairman. On this committee are
various civic and business leaders, in
cluding the leading club women of the
Each member of the general com
mittee is chairman of a subcommittee
responsible for some definite depart
ment of the campaign's activity. The
Director of Streets and Sewers is
chairman of the committee on "Refuse
Clean-up," the chief of the Fire De
partment is chairman of the commit
tee on fire prevention and the head
of the Health Department is chair
man of the committee on housing re
A partial list of these campaign
committees, with notation of some of
the objects of each follows:
Committees for the Work.
Street Department - Household

of districts which will be center of

cratic Convention, smooth paving,

School Children-Distribution of

the committee.
