To those who pro phesied that the new form of gov ernment would prove "etficient but coki," the emphasis upon the hu man element of city airairs, found in these stories, comes as a genuine and happy surprise. Lest the re- sults accomplished, flattering as they are, be misconstrued as a cri terion of what the new pian may be expected to produce under more favorable conditions, the editor in the' "Foreword" to this Yearbook makes three significant statements: 1. Readjustment of a city'.s working organization and methods is the first, the hardest, and the least appreciated task of a city manager. 2. Government cannot be meas ured by the tax rate. EfTiciency may allow reduced taxes; it may deniand increased taxes; it may even diciate a deficit, in emergen- cy, rather than endanger public safety. Real success lies in selling the most good government to satisfied tax-payers. 3. Progress under the new pian has been hampered by two tempo rary handicaps: war conditions, with scarcity and high cost of la bor and materials, yet bringing increased demands for service; and the newness of city-manager gov ernment, with a consequent dearth of trained managers, a frequent lack of understanding on the part of commissioners, and a citizen ship not yet wholly awakened to its task of participating in civic affai rs and to the joy if disinter ested community service.

Rolfe Railroad Street The biggest thing for your child is not to leave him money. Edgar (iuest says: "Better than money would be to leave him self-reliance and manly and able to earn bis ovvn way in the world." The biK" gest thing for your children is such a broad education as will fit them to achieve the highest success and happiness of which they are cap able. Psychologists have classified children according to types of mind, and have shown what kind of reading eaeh type needs in or der to avoid one-sidedness and in sure ali round development. Fun- loving Billy of the "vital tempera ment" should have books that grip his attention through interesting illustrations and vivid style in the line of serious ambitions and aims. The "sympathetic" Mary needs reading that will add firmness and stability to her character. Did you over know of an en cyclopedia that was prcnared de signedly and definitely to supiIy the right kind of reading, in the right way, for the varying mental types of children? But that is just the thing that was done by the builders of Compton's Pictured Encvclopcdia. Compton's is the first and only encyclopedia thus constructed. ' Through its pages the boy or girl is lead on in rapt interest to lcarn of the whole world, to commune with the great est figures of the past and present, to look into the deepest mysteries of nature, to catch the inspiration of litcrature ,art and music. One thing that marie Theodore Roosevelt the many sided man he was and gave him the niarvelous influence he exerted was his wide knowledge of men and things gainerl through reading. What js the biggest thing you can do for your children? A Big thing you can do is to get Compton's Pictur ed Enevclopedia for him it nviv prove THE BIGGEST. Sample set at E. C. Smith's Book Stoie. C.
