SIN AND CITIES
F\ON”T blame sin on the cities.
No community is ever better
than the people within it. If the peo-
ple are honest. God-fearing, law-abid-
ing and live up to the teachings of
their churches, regardless of denomi-
nation, they'll find little cause for com-
plaint no matter where they live. But
when they know what is right and
don’t do it or don’t Insist on others
following the best pathway they are
likely to be disgruntled with condi-
tions which they bring upon them-
We know a great deal about most of
the big cities, but we know Just as
much of the~ small towns and open
country, and proportionately, we be-
lieve, there is no difference in the
volume of wrong-doing. And we con-
fidently believe that if people hailing
from the small towns and country
would be as devout to the cause of
right as they claim to be when they
come into large communities, the
blotches on cities’ reputations would
be much fewer than thev are.
It Is true that there are many more
amusements and inducements in big
towns which are likely to divert new-
comers’ attention from church work
and borne life. But none of these will
lead people from the proper pathway
unless they are willing to be led. Even
commercialized amusements on the
Sabbath will have no harmful effects
on those who know they are wrong. If
they wish conscientiously to follow
J the safe pathway.
Remove from every big city the sin-
ners who rush in from small places
for hiding and the,police and uplift
Workers would find little work neces-
sary In order to preserve the stand-
ards of morality ind honesty which
are so greatly to he desired.
Able ministers, fine churches, edu-
cational opportunities, science, inven-
tion and commercial and Industrial
progress of the cities are the kind of
inspirations which should make the
world in general more happy, comfort-
aide and thankful to God.

Condition of City's Streets Gives Pret-
ty Clear Insight Into Its Gen-
American cities are manifesting a
new Interest in anti-litter work. Of
the minor problems facing American
municipalities there is scarcely any
one more Important than this. Just
as the neatness and cleanness of one’s
personal appearance is an indication
of character, so the physical appear-
ance of a city’s streets gives a pretty
clear insight Into the city’s composite
character. A fine avenue littered with
filth and rubbish means nothing except
bad citizenship. It betrays the ab-
sence of that spirit of co-operation
which is tlie essence of good govern-
ment. A man who has so little respect
for his associated citizens ns to strew
the highway with papers and general
refuse does not possess that “social
conscience” which brings Important
results In more important matters. It
Is difficult to believe that a littered-up
city is a well-governed city; the thing
is nothing but a bodge of civic care-
lessness, waste and even of corruption,

really deeply interested in the welfare
of the municipalities of tlie state, it
will concentrate next session on an
effort to have tlie legislature enact a
zoning law. Third-class cities are
meeting problems every day of serious
character that only zoning regulations
solve. . . . Real city planning em-
braces tlie zone system if it is to get
anywhere. Harrisburg’s planning sys-
tem bus done many tilings worth
while. But it could do far more if
the zoning of the city were made a

j We spend our young years grubbing

j are too tired and too untrained to en-
i joy it.
Some day we will wake up to the
| fact that beauty pays.
We need not abandon work and go
to loafing. It is just as necessary, and
adds just as much to the rational en-
joyment of life, to have a beautiful
place to work in as to have a beau-
tiful place to play in, or to worship
The main trouble with Main street is
that it is hideous.
The store fronts are not attractive.
The men who put them up did not care
how they looked. All they wanted was
a place, secure from the rain, where
they could sell hardware and grocer-
ies. And all the people want that visit
them is a place where they can get a
stove or a can of corn.
That is why the young people “hate
the place.” That is why they leave it
as soon as they are old enough. At
least, that is a very important con-
That'is also one of the reasons why
we have so little civic pride. We have
little to be proud of.
We ought to realize that even from
the standpoint of efficiency people do
better work when they are in conduc-
A large eastern manufacturing com-
pany has no strikes. It has never had
any labor trouble. If you visit the
place you will see why.
The factories are beautiful. They
are largely of glass. The workers
work amid beautiful surroundings.
They are not only well paid, they are
treated as human beings. All around
the work buildings, engine houses,
stables and warehouses are beds of
flowers, smooth lawns, graveled roads.
And a vast park Is at hand where the
workers can picnic.
Go to another factory, one that I
have especially in mind, where they
manufacture steel products. Its huge,
blnckened walls look like a state
prison. The Are and smoke belching
from its chimneys look like hell. The
homes of the work people are hovels.
There are no flowers, no trees, no
lawns; only dirty, cluttering yards,
goats and battered tomato cans. They
have plenty of labor troubles there.
Tills, of course, does not mean that
you can satisfy laborers by giving
them posies, but It does mean that
