Plans for the Inauguration of the
community cheat campaign are
now being considered and it is
hoped to have the budget adopted
and the necessary sum raised by
the first of November. Toe com
mittee la headed by Senator B. L.
Eddy who haa had much experi
ence In work of this kind and un
der his direction the committee
is expected to aoon have its plans
fully developed.
The community chest plan of
charitable and benevolent work
has been adopted In practically
every city of importance. It haa
proven the most saUnfactory and
systemaUc method, resulting not
only in more help being ectended
to worthy causes but also in elimi
nating much wasteful giving and
resulting in a saving to those who
bear the brunt of a community's
benevolence.
ITnder the community cheat plan
UM various organizations and I
causes, to wtitcB money is given I
by the resident of a city, are
apared the expense of making their
usual drives and campaigns, which
it is esUmated cost them two-fifths
of the amount raised. An organ
ization which raises 1500 in a
community expends approximately
I20M of that amount In necessary
expenditures in conducting the
campaign. Residents therefore
can give their (300 to the organis
ation and retain the $200 and still
the wnrlf for which )h mnnotf I
intended ran Km pnrHml nn with '
the same efficiency as it f500had
been raised under the old system.
In fact, still greater efficiency re
sults for Instead of the time of of
ficials of the organization being
'required to direct the drive they
caa oe retained on meir original
duties. j -
The greatest value of the com
munity chest, however, Is the man
ner In which worthy charities are
taken care of to the exclusion of
the unworthy demands. Merchants
of any city are besieged dally with
countless hordes of professional
beggars. Some are crude in their
methods, while others have worked
their graft to a high point of ef
ficiency. Some have a woeful tale
of hard luck. Some are ravaged
by sickness and disease. Some are
trying to get home to relatives, bat
ail are working to the same end,
that of trying to make a living as
far removed from work aa possible.
Many merchants would rather
give the applicant a dollar than
take the time to listen to his tale
of woe. These parasites take ad
vantage of this fact and continue
to prey upon the community. The
community chest system offers a"
committee which carefully Investi
gates any claim for aid and If the
applicant Is found to be deserving
his wants are supplied. '
The greater number of cases
where help Is needed never come
to light voluntarily. By the pres
ent system the people really need
ing assistance are often neglected,
while money and provisions go to
the transients who are merely try
ing to "work" the community far
their support.
Under the community chest plan,
however, there Is a committee
wnich directs all expenditures. Any
report of need is immediately In
vestigated and lr there Is found a
place where help should be extend
ed the funds are made available.
1 he community chest plan was
thoroughly explained to Koseburg
men by Marshfleld workers recent
ly. Marshfleld has been working
the plan for several years and as
conditions there are the same as at
Koseburg the committee is careful
ly Investigating the methxin em
ployed there as that city has been
very auccessful.
At Marshfleld the plan haa sav
