Hasty judgment would indicate
that financial economy is the chief
point at ìs.sue. 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.

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.
