John lhlder,, liild s'cretary of iht
National Housing Association, write:
a forceful article on W\\ashington':
alley slums. The opening line ask:
what do you know about (Goat Al
ley, Washington, 1). C., and ther
goes on to say that only a few o1
the people of Washington are aware
tha! there is in the city's inhabited
alleys a menace to the public
health, morals and police records.
The requests and demands of so
cial workers and of citizens with a
social conscience, but without a
vote, fell an ears that were hard of
hearing. Only from President Roose
volt did they get any hearing. His
President's Home Commission made
a study of alley dwellings and pub
lished a report with recommenda
tions. Its only tangible result has
been the beginning of the conver
sion of Willow Tree alley into an
interior park. That is something-
though many of the workers believe
that such an interior park will be
almost as great a mienace as the in
habited alley. Washington City has
some 275 inhabited alleys.
There has been some legislation
that has improved conditions. The
board for the condemnation of in
sanitary buildings has been created.
Up to May I of this year it had de
molished 1,692 of the worst shacks
and caused 1,555 to be repaired.
There is a law prohibiting the
erection of new houses on alleys
less than forty feet. wide.
There is a law providing for the
conversion of alleys into minor
streets, but like some other laws
which mean well, it does not work.
So Washington has made very little
progress in its alley problems.
The "voteless citizens" of the cap
ital did more than ask Congress to
do something for them. They stud
led their problem and published
books and reports just as eitizens
with votes in other cities do. Thly
brought in men lilk Jacob A. Riis
to alrouse general ilterest. 'T l'hy or.
ganized two housing camipalign1s Ol
a , per cent and a i per cento basi.
0o prO\vide good housing in coinpe
tition with bad. Last winter the
general public began to take inter
est. Two more pamphlets were is
sued, one by the Monday Evening
Club and the other by the Women's
Welfare Department. The ministers
of the National Civic Federation
preached about bad alleys, and Mrs.
Woodrow Wilson joined the ranks.
The Committee of Fifty outlined
a plan of campaign. It was proposed
to ask Congress for an amendment
to the law for the conversion of al
leys into minor streets, and that
Congress be asked to finance a com
mission created to study the whole
alley question and to make recom
mendations for converting the al
leys into a system of minor streets
within a definite number of years.
This would not only solve the al
ley problem, but would give Wash
ington what it and every other city
needs-a system of minor streets
affording sites for inexpensive small I
All this is encouraging as snowing
that the present agitation has
stirred XWashington's population
from top to bottom.
Washington has enjoyed the rep
utation of being the best planned
city in "America. Only recently has
it been realized that from the be
gining this plan has been incoim
plete. The magnificent wide avenues
designed by Major L'Enfant bor
dered along. a great part of their
distance by very deep lots, led in
evitably to the construction of
winding branching alleys and the
erection of hidden houses, which
had no place in the original plan
and are a menace to the city.
Earnest Needle Workers.
The ice cream supper given Tues
day evening on the lawn of Queens
borough Methodist church was a so
cial and financial success. Music was
furnished by Townsend's band, and
the merry groups on the pretty
green lawn made a very invitinr
picture. A purse of $15 was netted
from the sale of votes for the most
popular young lady, who proved to
be Miss Fannie Poythress, and in
view of this handsome compliment
Miss Poyt.hress was presented with
a beautiful cake. The ladies realiz--d
$50 from the sale of refreshments
which were generously served by
Misses Jessie Bond, Alice Garner
and Allie Ford.

Benton's New Principal.
The "Bossier Banner" makes the
following complimentary mention
of the new high school principal,
Mr. R. H. McCullough, a well known
and successful teacher. The citizens
of Benton are to be congraulated on
securing the services of Mr. McCul
lough and his accomplished wife:
"Mr. H. R. McCullough, the newly
elected principal of our school, ac
companied by Mrs. McCullough and
their daughter, Miss Margaret, ar
rived one day last week, and atre oc
cupying Mr. L. N. Bush's cottage.
Mr. McCullough is a teacher of
about twenty years experience and
comes highly .e commended. He was

school at Ru.-tLn, has taught at!
Hamme- ' - , ' -ring the past two
terms ha ueett principal of the
Jena high school. Also, he had some
years experience as a teacher be
fore coming to the State. Aided by,
such an able and tactful body of
young lady teachers, he will no
doubt draw a large attendance and
make a success of the school."

Around it still the sumachs grow,
And blackberry vines are running.
Within, the master's desk is seen,
Dbep scarred by raps official;
The warping floor, the battered
The jack knife's carved initial;
The chaicoal frescoes on its wall;
Its door's worn sill, betraying
The feet that, creeping slow to
Went storming out to playing.
Long years ago a winter sun
Shone o'er it at setting;
Lit up~its western window panes,
And low eaves' icy fretting.
It touched the tangled golden curls,
And brown eyes full of grieving,
Of one who still her steps delayed
When all the school was leaving.
For near her stood a little boy
*Her childish favor singled:
His cap pulled low upon his face
Where pride and shame were
Pushing with restless ftet. tlhe snow
To right and left, he lingered;
Xs-restlessly her tiny hands
The blue checked apron fingered.
lie saw her lift her eyes, he felt
The soft Ihands' light caressing,
\nd heard the tremble of her voice
As if a fault confessing.

"Because. you see, I love you."
Slill memory to a gray-haired nian,

Have forty years been growing!
