Capital Goes Social in a Modern Way Even Ihroiitfh the depression years the coiniiHinily trust itlwi has urown until today ?«fl,2r>(i,0m) is prndudiiK inori! limn ?I.OO(l,(i(V) every year for tho social need;; ill' 7li comimniitius. Thepc tnisls, cslnMislicd on the trail bliwcd in Clovi-luiul in 1!M-1, arc Iwseil on the idea that when individuals liwi! money in trust for sqiecilU 1 cliarilnlilu purposes, purposes often become silly in the %ht of chaiiginir conditions. Marion, 1ml., for insliinfe, has a line of line hitching racks at (he ciinii'i 1 of the courthouse—n.selOf-K now, lliounh an appreciated public benefaction once. But the person who jr;tvu thn wniarc itself to the courthouse specilicd that hitching racks must be maintained, and KO lines of motor cars look down their radiators at the ont-modcil posts thai must stay there. ? t * Forty years ago an Ohio woman left in trust a bequest to her city to be invested until an Asylum for Inebriates should bii founded there, when the money should yo to this asylum. Then: never luu been any, and the money lies unused and unusable. The community trust idea was to create a permanent fund administered \ by a board of public-spirited citizens as the needs of the community demanded. And the plan has progressed until the Cleveland Foundation, pioneer in the work-AjKtojf'.WHS ?5,!>81,000,. and that of New York, ?7,70o,GOO. Income from these funds is used for community needs as they are today— not as some long-dead benefactor thought they-might be today. .Much of ii went last yca,r into direct Community Fund relief work. * * « Some of the larger appropriations, for example, of the New York community trust for last year went lu the Association for Improving the Condition of the .1'oor, the Charily Organization Society, the Girl Scouts, the Hebrew University in 1'alestinc, the Protestant Kpiscopal City Mission Society, the Salvation Army, United Hospital Fund, and Visiting Nurse Service. And all these and other appropriations from the fund were approved by a ret of impartial and public-spirited trustees, who have power to alter the channels of original benefactions in case the public interest .so indicates. Several of the kirger community trusts for the last few years have been allotting larger sums for direct relief and Community Fund work than usual, diverting such funds from edu- cationid and research work which miulil be equally valuable in the long run, but was less urgently needed during (hose difficult times. The rise of such funds even in the face of tin; trying conditions ol recent years indicates that all capital is not antisciHally-ininded, and becomes every year more practical and sensible in its willingness to abandon the withering control of the "dead band." After Many Days Cast thy bread upon the. walers, for thoii shalt Hud it after many days, said the I'reacher. Four years a^o the fanners of Koulli Dakota were moved by accounts of a devastating drouth in Arkansas. They not only sympathi/.ed; they did sonie- Ihint; about it. They sent to Arkansas carloads and truckloads of food for people and feed for animals, Today, shipments of bay and other provender are on their way ID South Dakota from Arkansas. A score of carloads of hay and cottonseed meal have been pledged by Arkansas farmers to be sent northward. Thi! Arkansas fanners didn't forjjet. And the bread which the South Dakota fanners cast upon the waters in lilSO is returning to them after font- years. So long as .such things happen, \ve know thai gratitude, and sympathy, :ind neit;lil)orliness arc not dead, but need only a tragedy like the seared crops of the northwest to brint? them forth.
