cf Architecture; has a significance for
the urban communities of the State
not easily overestimated. If we look
at only one phase of the new depart
mentthat of landscape architecture,
Include city planning a little, reflec
tion will show that, tt has vast possi
bilities, particularly since It ts
launched Just at the opportune time
In the development of Oregon. It has
been ' the .rule, In other and older
states, for cities to "grow up," like
Topsy, either with no plan or with
only the" customary framework of
streets laid out like a checker board,
whose chief virtues are simplicity ana
regularity, with the opportunity of in
definite expansion. Rarely haa provi
sion been made In the original "town
plats' for these breathing spaces In
the form of parks, squares, . play
grounds and boulevards, which, as the
town matures Into a city, aro seen to
be so essential to health and so de
sirable, from .the artistic viewpoint.
Often nothing Is done on these lines
till the growth of business, tbe rise
In property values, and the hardening
of the social habit of the people has
made the task of beautifying the city
and rendering It wholesome, too heavy
to be achieved in Its full or most de
sirable extent. So the city's oppor
tunity passes; It Is fated to remain
Inconvenient, , onhoalthful and com
monplace, whereas. If thought had
been expended on It In time, It might
1 r:zi )
have been a comfort and a Joy to
generations of loyal, devoted citizens.
Tbe St. Psul papers of December
It recite tbe activity Just developed
In that city In the way for tbe city's
beau tiflcat Ion and permanent Im
provement. John Nalen, the cele
brated landscape architect, of Cam
bridge, Massachusetts, had been em
ployed to make the plana. A number
of committees of citizens were work
ing with him, holding maas meetings,
taking the sentiment of the community-on
the proposed plans as they
were being developed. Millions upon
millions will be spent In tbst clt dur
ing the next few years to produce, In
part, the effect which a little plan
ning forty years ago would have given
In so much greater perfection.-.
In our own state most of tho towns
are as yet near tbe beginning of tbelr
development No doubt .the decade on
which we have entered will bring
great changes, for we can confidently
expect the doubling of the state's
population by 1920. and If tbe drift
cityward continues, the next census
will show a phenomenal growth for
Oregon cities. It Is, then, the oppor
tune moment to begin shaping their
growth while they are still plastic
with small , populations, cheap and
temporary buildings, comparatively
low property' values- If the work Is
(aken In hand now, as It may be with
the advice and aid of tbe University's
new' department, Oregon can have, In
a 'generation from the present time,
the finest showing 'of up-to-date, beau
tiful and healthful cities to be found
in North America. . '.
