U ift a thorny soil of job from any viewpoint, and it is very doubtful whether any rc-hoiming project will ever pay its way in dollars anil cents. Hut who can read what this New York woman said without getting a new understanding of the real, inner value of the work? To the slum dwellers themselves,-a thing of this kind makes all the dil 1 - i'orencc in the world—the ditTcrence between a bad life ami a good life, between misery and happiness. New Building, New Windows on Lij'e We use. a lot of big words lo describe, the reforms we are trying lo make' in our society. It is too easy lo forget'the human values which those big words conceal. Take "slum clearance," .for instance. Those words call to mind a vision of arc hi t e c t s, draughtsmen, engineers and constructors; they conjure up a picture of workmen tearing down old ' houses and pulling new ones in their places: but they don't, ordinarily, tell us anything about the change that lukes place in the lives of lummii beings. A good idea of what slum clearance really means was provided in New York the other day, when a committee of the cill council called witnesses in a conference about public housing projects. It heard the.usual, experts—architects, engineers, financiers and BO on—and th'en it called Sirs. Anna Schier, to tell about the human side of the picture. Mrs. Schier hud lived all her life in lower East Side tenements. For a num= her of years she and her husband and two daughters occupied a flat in a dilapidated old building which was about as uncomfortable a place as people ever tried to call home. It was dark, the filth of years was ingrained in thu very walls, il .stank to heaven and it was overrun with vermin. : y "The mice and the insects," said Mrs. Sehier, "they could only have' been" killed with dynamite." , But at last a slum clearance program was got under way, ami the new apartments of the Williamsburgh Housing Project, ;j in Brooklyn, were built. -The Schier family moved out of its old' hovel into one of these clean, airy liew dwellings. And .Airs. Schier cried as she told the committee about the change. "It has been so wonderful, so remarkable, that it seems like a dream," she said. "It is truly paradise, l.aiu just as poor as when I lived on the East Side, but when I walk through these grounds 1 feel like a millionaive. clothes feel different, though they are Ihe very same clothes." There is the angle on slum clearance that \ve usually forget about. It takes money to replace slums will* decent homes; more money,, unfortunately, than we arc able lo afford on OUT OUR WAY Maku Yoniw.lf Comfy Italy lias prepared i'.Kolf to receive Hitler in the stylo lo which lie luts become ;iccuslomed. A mi-respondent, reports Uuit cveiy- body in Uie counU-y who "mit'lil for any reason hoar a grudge" against the German visitor is untler arrest. The number of such persons, the correspondent say:i, runs inlu the thousands. Police patrols are carefully watching all the frontiers and keeping track of all the travelers already inside. All motorists entering Komi. 1 , Naples, or Florence are carefully iiuestioncd. "Many (hmi.siiiulii" of detectives havo been concentrated in those cities. Further preparations have been made along Hitler's route. All residents til' houses along the route have been made to assume full responsibility lor the actions of persons using their windows. The street decorations arc voluminous. These are calculated to interfere with gunfire. Wclcomu! War in the Playroom Such "militaristic" playthings as toy soldiers, toy cannon, and toy macliinu guns comprise less than I per cent of the merchandise on display at the American Toy Fair in New York. The reason is thai "children's play interests" reflect those of their parents, according to a spokesman for the fair, and the toy demand these days is that ot a "peace-loving American people." The same announcement was made a year ago. There have been-a number of newspaper stories .in Ihc last couple of years describing a trend away from the military in playthings. 15ut, though the toy soldier and all his military accoutrement may comprise only 1 per ceul of the merchandise displayed at the toy fair ... a national exhibition for buyers . . . playroom artillery ylill takes tip a si/.e- able space on the shop counters. It may be thai it is not being- sold, but jusl standing there. Or maybe the children are a little slow in catching their elders' peace-loving spirit, and the toy people are trying to hurry things along by talking about il.
