By ELJDA BEDELL.
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.

Particularly notable was tho help

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.

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.

live, if my future work could be found in Bridgeport I would rather live
here and do my little share toward the city's progress 'than any othojr
city in the country."

THE HOWLAND
GERMANY IS
READY TO TAK
WORLD
London, June 18 Germany, now-
set for the greatest trad.- drive in his
tory to mt her indemnity obliga
tions is preparing for a commerce
struggle to take all the world markets
away from Great Britain according
to the Daily Express.
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
