these, each after Its kind, that we
would like to see discovered, standard
ised and codified in Washington.
We have evolved, it seems to me, a
very practii-nble uud sensible plan. In
the report which we have sent to
President Wilson we nsk. first, for a
survey of the city looking to u precise

By this nieiins we hope to produce a
scheme of government for Washington
which will not only meet its own
needs, but by its adoption else
where work a similar benefit.
The Importance of the preliminary
survey must not be overlooked. We
do not want to go down to Washington
and construct an "ideal city" out of
some mnn's bead. We want to flud by
the most scrupulous snd exhaustive
search what It Is that Washington
stands most in need of, and we pro
pose to supply her lacks by means of
the information we have collected in
That is to say, we do not wish to do
It ourselves. Mr. Ilruere and myself
have no ambition to get the Job or
even the supervision of It. We hope
merely that President Wilson will find
us reasonable enough and promising
enough to set out along the linos we
hare suggested and that when the
need arises for expert service in the
execution of the plan he will be able
to ret the best brain of the country to
Will the project we have outlined af
fect the physical aspect of cities? That

present stage of our work, but I
should say that It will.
S7 are deeply Interested in the lay

which comes from lirnorance.
CITY PLANNING IN SCHOOLS.
Philadelphia Children Interested In
New Course of Civio Instruction.
An Interesting departure has been
made In his course on civics by Charles
K. Taylor, executive director of the
committee on moral and social educa
tion of tho Homo and School league
and the Civic club of Philadelphia.
The now Idea is to teach city planning
by making tho students plan a city.
In an Interview Mr. Taylor thus dv
scribed it: .
"Without warning or notice paper Is
distributed to tho children, wUo are
prepared with rulers ami ivenclls. They
are then told to think of the composi
tion of a city. Its streets, public build
ings and the like. They are then told
to plan an lde.il city to the Ix-st of
their ability. Of course they make a
dreadful mess of it. knowing uothlng
about such matters, but the experi
ment proved to them that they really
tlld lack knowledge. Then they are j
given a series of t.-ilk, some Illustrated j
ou the black hoard. In which they are j
given Ideas as to what nn Meal city
might be like. They are told the value j
of radiating avenues, open squares.
pluygrouiids. worklngmen's suburbs, j
and so on. Kx perls from outlde the '
school have been asked to talk to the !
children on the subject. Ir. Alexan- I
der M. Wilson of the bureau of health
and Mr. Andrew Wright Crawford of
the municipal nrt Jury have been of
great help In giving the children of j
the schools where the experiment has 1
been made clear anil valuable Ideas .
concerning elty planning and the 'city
"When the children have their bends j
full of practical Ideas concerning the j
planning of nn Ideal city they engage
In a competition to see who can plan
the JH'st city, nnd these plans, made by !
children of thirteen nnd fourteen years
of age. are sometimes remarkable.
With schoolboys of this age gaining
such Ideas, in a generation we cou'd
have a strontr popular supriort of Im
pro log the city.
"The result of this planning Is that
the children become immensely Inter
ested in the 'city' Idea, so that now is
the psychological time for studying
the political structure of the town and
city, department by department, if pos
sible having representatives from the
different departments going to the
schools and describing the work of
their department and the relation of
their department to the city govern

BUTTONS FOR STREET WORK.
Philadelphia Inspector Devises Schema
to Win Children's Co-operation.
Mrs. Kdith W. Pierce, street Inspec
tor of the department of public works
In Philadelphia, has devised a new
way of winning the cooperation of
school children in the movument for
clean streets. She has designed a but
ton containing the legend, "For clean
streets. Philadelphia," which will be
nwarded as a budge of honor to chil
dren w ho do something to Improve the
condition of the streets.
The button Is round and white, with
a blue H'piare bearing the legend, em
blematic of the streets surrounding a
city square. Tho Itlea of using city
colors Is carried out In n yellow center
for the button.
Mrs. Pierce is working for "preven
tlve street cleaning." The buttons
will be supplied to the schools, the
leagues of good citizenship, social
workers and settlement houses to dis
tribute to children who have earned
them and will show that the wearers

Paris Historic Exhibition.
Ftich year Paris holds an exhibition
In the historic Library of tho City of
Paris. Tlie subject this year was the
promenades and gardens of Paris from
MIS to 1h:io. It was a thorough study
of the famous gardens of Paris, such
as the Tulleiies and the Luxembourg,
and clearly demonstrated the practical
and aesthetic value of such breathing
spots in a city. A handbook was pro

A blow was dealt to the liquor In
terests of the statn last week when
the Supremo Court held that local
option elections last November In Hu
lem charter amendment rase that a

Court even went further In th Sa-1

City Council, by refusing to Issue a
saloon license, ran make a city dry, ,
or the residents of a city run make
it so by passing an amendment or
ordinance to provide against the sale
of Intoxicating beverages.
That the opinion In the charter
amendment case practically gives
the ProhihllloiilHts fur more opportu
nity to suppress tho sale of liquor
through licensed saloons Is the opin
ion advanced by lawyers.
They ssy a majority of tho city
council or Portland could make that
city dry by refusing to Issue licenses
tti the siilooiimen. and that the coun
cils of all other cities and towns
could do likewise.
By tho home ruin amendment to
the constitution, says the opinion, a
municipality has the exclusive power
to license, control and prohibit the
sale of Intoxicating liquors, except
It shall bo subject to the provisions
of the local option law. When
the Council refuses to prohibit, the
people may so provide by ordinance
or In their charter, not as a local
option proceeding, but aa an Initia
tive measure. The local option law
Imposes no restraint thereon, and In
no sense In exclusive.
