After sixteen years in Y. M. C. A. work in Bridgeport, as general secretary. W. Seymour Lacy, a man who has given un sparingly of his time and en ergies to the work nearest to his heart, will resign on Julv first'. "What am I planning to do? Why, rest; rest and study. I expect to stay in Bridgeport, with the exception of occasion al visits out of town, hut I shall have my first opportunity in 32 years of work to call my time my own, to do with it what I wish, and I am planning to make the most of the opportun ity," said Mr. Lacy, recently, in the first interview accorded to a newspaper representative since the news of his resigna tion was made public. "Later on." continued Mr. Lacy. "I may decide on just what I am going to do. Right now I can think of nothing else but rest and study, serious study, both of which I feel I need." Active in Drives. It is hardly necessary to write about Mr. Lacy's activities. Every body knows of the tremendous work he has done to make the Bridgeport V". M. C. A. one of the leading insti tutions of its kind in the country. Its educational, industrial and recre ational departments all of these have always had the support of Mr. Lvicy, and he has stood firmly behind any project that would add to the srlory and prestige of this splendid institution. Nor have his efforts been confined to this work alone. He has always given freely of his energies to any work for public betterment, witness the various drives during the war, which held Bridgeport up as a model to other cities, and larger ones, too, throughout the country. Secretary Invented Plan. An interesting fact about these drives was given by Mr. Lacy. The first person to evolve the idea of an emciency drive to take the place of "he old-fashioned and often long- urawn-out subscription affair was a Y. M. C. A. secretary named Charles Ward. His idea was first nut into nrac- tice more than 25 years ago, when a new T. M. C. A. building was needed in the city in which he was station ed. It was first timed 'to run for 60 days, and was eminentlv success ful. With Its success, Mr. Ward be an to refine the idea, and to shorten the time, at first to 30 days, then to week. Tho plan was so well thnnght of that financial syndicates adopted it. and are still using it, charging exor bitant fees, in many cases, for the service. Mr. Ward handled the campaign in New York for new Y. M. and V. W. C. A. expenses and succeeded in rais ing between three and four million dollars for the project. Ail this, of course, was before the war. Henry Davison, later head of the National Red Cross, was then a part of Mr. Ward's personnel, and when the war broke out, and Presi dent Wilson appealed to the country for funds for the Ited Cross. Mr. Da vison naturally turned, to Mr. Ward, and the work was done through the Y. M. C. A.'s all over the country. Mr. Hacy was in charge of the Con necticut campaign and came Into splendid prominence through the re cord that the state made in this mncn needed campaign. After that, Mr. Lacy's life was just one campaign after another. He was called upon from all quarters, and his aid was never refused. Helped tho K. of C.s Particularly notable was tho help he gave to the Knights of Columbus NOT TO HONOR TICKETS FOR HALF-FARES .With the second conference be tween the representatives of the Con necticut company and the. trolleymen at a deadlock, and the matter about to go to arbitration, many other mat ters of interest to habitual riders are coming to the surface. One is- the fact that with a reduc tion in operating: expenses the men feel as though there should be a re duction in Cares. This is in line with the belief of the public that the quickest way for the trolley company to get rid of the horde of jitneys would be to operate over the same distance for the same fare. It is admitted that research has shown trolleys more practical and cheaper of operation than jitney buses. Local officials have denied rigrht along- that any reduction was anticipated. The effect of the new jitney law upon the riding public may govern the situa tion to a great extent. In the mean time, instead of a reduction, it is an nounced from New Haven that half fare rickets will not be honored dur ing the summer. This covers tickets issued for school children which were later al lowed to include those attending Sun day school. During the summer when public schools are closed the tickets will not be honored on the Sabbath. Connecticut company officials have also denied that the ane of busra was to be resorted to. especially on the Bridgeport -Danbury line, to give more frequent service and to compete with iitneys. The dispatch, which has been denied, came out of Dan bury.

' ' W. Seymour Lacy Mr. Lacy's Message to Bridgeport. 'One could not live in Bridgeport duri jg the last sixteen years and not be profoundly impressed with the ei-ty's progress, particularly with the growth of civic pride and interest in the city's welfare. While there is much still to be accomplished, the city is well worthy of the pride of her citizens and if the growing civic pride continues and is materialized, Bridgeport will soon be as famous as a city in which to live and rear children as it now is for its splendid industries. "1 believe the people in Bridgeport are on the gratifying increase who believe with Emerson that The truest test of a civilization is not the census, nor the size of cities, nor the crops; no, but the kind of men the country turns jCut.' "Very naturally one of the things I am concerned to see Bridgeport offer 5s a modern Y. M. C. A- building, -with all of the advantages, for the youth, which go with such a modern building. There are onJy three or four cities in America of anywhere near the importance of Bridgeport which have not long since replaced the type of building that is here with an adequate up-to-date equipment. I think T know Bridgeport well enough to be assured that as soon as conditions are possible she will offer to the young men and boys of Bridgeport what practically every other city does.

Mr. Lacy deprecates this help, how ever, and insists that he did little to aid the workers. "I acted only in an advisory capa city," he says. "Erancis J.

The Daily Express views the future that the British working men are go with undisguised alarm, declaring ing to suffer keenly from the indus trial competition. "Before the war the total export of manufactured and partly manufactur ed goods of all countries of the world was thirteen hundred mil lions," said the Daily Express. "If Germany is to pay the war indemnity as it is now fixed sho must export over fifteen hundred millions of goods more than the total export of the world before and twice the pre war export of Great Britain and Ger many combined. "The payment of tho indemnity in the form in which the Allied Powers h a v e now arra n ge d is causing con sternation txi th ctty and in the great manufacturing1 centers. If Ger many, as our commercial rival la able to pay, sho can only do so at the price rf ruining the export trade of Grea.t Britain. Tf she sells over fifteen hundred millions worth of goods to tho world Lit large the Brit ish export industry by which we all live, may- as well put up Its shutters. There will be nothing left over for us. "And this may well happen. Tho Germans are working furiously at 1 o w rates 0 f wages and with the whole balance of the rate of ex change in their favor, to capture the markets of the world. If they suc ceed in paying the indemnity in this form, receipt of payment will be a curse and not a blessing. No cash can compensate Great Britain for the loss of its export trade. "The view of the great financial ex perts is that the Allied statesmen and certtainly the British representatives on the Supreme Council have made a colossal blunder. Th" only way to collect the indemnity from Germany was to gather it in the form of raw I materials iron ore, coal, wood pulj potash and all the Other products of the earth and the depths under the Many Signing Protests Against New Movie Tax Stratford people are not being a 1 Ruseell Mfg.
