The Playground Movement
The man in the street may say that the playground
movement is a mere fad or frrill of modern life promoted
bv visionary people He may remark sneeringly that
when he was a boy the kids could play all right without
having anyone to tell the mhow or furnish them any place
Yet they have opened grounds for this purpose and had
them handled by people who know how to supervise such
work people are cnthusiastice over the results achieved
The experience of Findly Ohio may be interesting A
year ago at this time they had no playgrounds There
was strong opposition to spending public money for this
purpose The city authorities were unable to give the
project any financial support The Chamber of Commerce
pushed the project actively and 1500 was raised by sub
scription to open two grounds and the chamber under
took to see that they were properly supervised
A seven acre field of corn stubble was turned into an
athletic ground and other tracts were opened for this
purpose The results have been so admirable that public
sentiment is now converted to the idea Two houndred
and fifty parents turned out to one of the final events of
last seasons work Our family with eight children sends
the whole flock of them to the ground each day
Before the davs of playgrounds the kidlets of city and
town life would be hanging around the streets enjoying
idle mischief and picking up bad habits But when they
attend a supervised playground they are taught games
where ideas of fair play of team work of courteous con
duct are emphasized An outlet is given for their animal
spirits and desire to enjoy competitive sports The chanc
es that such young people will deveolp into useful citizens
is greatly increased
Cost of Our Follies
Some people wlio look around at the business and labor
situation and see people out of work and things not going
just right are always ready to fall for revolutionary pro
paganda They say the country should try socialism or
bolshevim or anarchism or some other ism- They see
that as long as people will keep foolish things there will
be many who have to pay the penalty under any economic
Extravagant and inefficient government is one of these
follies People have long tolerated the use of public office
for political trading and they put smart talkers and
smooth handshakers in office instead of competent men
who could run business economically The result is high
taxes This makes production cost high and many peo
ple are unable to buy products thus throwing producers
out of work
Indolence and lack of industry is another tolly rJ he
man who fools around on his job and refuses to put his
lmnvf mwl niinvfrv into it makes tioods cost high Again
the result is to raise prices to the point where millions of
people cant buy them This results in a lack of orders to
the factories and many people are thrown out of work
Personal extravagance is another folly When money
is spent on foolish luxuries it is not deposited in banks
nor put into sound investments As a result the banks
and other keepers of money may not have any to lend
when people want to borrow to improve their property or
build houses When business men and farmers cmt bor
labor This again throws
row money they cant employ
people out of work
And so one could go on enumerating popular lollies that
cost the country dear The penalty for such follies would
be still mure severe under a socialistic system since no
incentive would be offered people to manifest industry
and thrift and other virtues that are essential to human
welfare aMJSi
Signs of Growing Business
A man represents 150 retail concerns in the New York
market reports that more business has been placed by his
concerns in a fortnight than in any two weeks of the sis
tory of his organization The number of store representa
tives visiting New York to make purchases has also been
the heaviest on record
The Retail Millinery Association ot America states that
500 requests for tickets to their show in New York had to
be refused owing to lack ot room This indicates an an
nual number of buyers present
Many retail stores are finding their stocks so low that
they are buying freely hi a time of quiet busiiiess peo
ple become excessively cautious Then all at once they
find that they are losing trade because their stocks are so
low Then a lot of them jump at once to buy and a wave
of prosperity spreads over thp country It looks as if the
business community were getting close to this point now
Schools of Printing
A school is to be opened at Ithaca New York to teach
printing as announced by the New York state publishers
association Tt will not be operated for profit but to pro
mote luiowlcdgc of the art
This is the fourth of the kind to be started in this
country It seems strange that more has not been done in
the way of vocational instruction in printing It is a trade
which lll for lim craftsmanship general intelligence
and ability to present bought in a forceful form It opens
opportunities for entrance to a great industry and is the
door through which many have gone into success m the
