THE DECATUR REVIEW SftWBXY EVENING,. DECEMBER iw r uUJOM'oomiTirV MONDAY «VBNINO. PKC. U. HM._ B1OGBR PfcAYGROUNJM. At tn» s*en'« meeting at th« DecHur club this evening thire Is 'to b« a dls- cuMkm of school buildings; more particularly. the manner of raising the money to put up a m-w building for the Church street school will be considered. Borne of the prominent men and heavy taxpayers of the town arc to take part In thl» discussion; .ilso tho board of education will b« represented. While the gentlemen are on thto subject they shoulil not overlook the matter of a pla ground In connection with that school. Playgrounds About city schools are coming In »· considered of more Importance A f w days ago n new high school building was dedicated In Philadelphia; the COM! of the structure was a million ami n liulf. On that occasion President Ropsivtlt made an adilrrps; among other things he said: "While we niTil sound bodies-Hind It I* u poor lpt of Hchoul nowaduyu that has not a good phiyground attached (ap- , platuif)-- M m,- Interrupt mysilf to »jy that It I" not so lung ago, In my own city at It-nst, trot was held as a revolutionary doctilm. It was bcllrvetl that the schools, espci laity In the very quarters where th«. playgrounds were most needed. In «he crowded purls of the city. did not neid playgrounds at all; that It was a new fangled Idfu and that It should be frowned upon by practical people The Idea of huUnjr playgrounds! And they e«peeted to turn out good cltlaens of the boys and girls, who, when they went Into school, wore put upon the streets In the ciowilcd quarters of New York to play at the games Unit tliey could piny at In the streets. We have passed Ihtat »lu*e I think We re.illxe what a good, hc.ilthy playground meunx to the children 1 think we understand that not only Is the effect good upon their bodies, but ulm upon their minds." In this matter, again, the president has got In line with the trend of thn nge Some one has nald that this In the ngr of the little folks, which means the rights that are theirs nre coming to lit* recog- nised. Decittur IM u town th it Ix KIIIW- Ing. II really expects to become a clt of Importance: It cxicctx to t with the foremost In evirythliig. HO II will have to make arrangements to care well for the little folks. Just now the playgrounds that are attached to the Urcntur school*. with fi w exceptions, an- clearly Inadequate, t i n y are too umiill. JutkHim, lmf«c uncl Marietta schools h d \ i fulr playground-, lull in all the others the ((rounds ai t . 'ton small. The proposition now Is to put up a new building for the chuu-h street school. A good building «l|| K ,, up jhere. for this will «lw«)s IM- a -, niral school and the attendance will I,,- large. Also this sch.ol Is In what Mil] remain a rather crowded Part of thi U l . cm,, that will get more SO. Now l» Hi, im,,. | 0 ,,., morf KTmml With a un «om*thln« la sure to napeon that will provoke him Into firing. This In especially true If the nation that In parading the fun Is altogether stronger than the other little fellow. Of course l'nc\f Ram docs not like this situation, It rather grate* ntralnit the grain of a policy that he has bi*n pur- mine for nearly a contury. Germany and England will do well to go a little slow in Vemiiifla. There Is a contagion In this thing of pulling a gun, and there li no telling where th« shindy will stop after the lights have been shot out. BOTH MEN WIN. James Henson succeeded In having tho board of supervisors take up the county Jail matter and now tluro la a prottpect that something will be done to remedy the Insufferable situation that has prevailed here for some time. At the same time J.imis Holllngtr hns probably flx'.d matters so a new Jjll to cost »73,0)0 will not be built; Holllnner can claim 'tt victory If only l»ilf that sum Is njcnt. Here Is a cu»e In which both James Hcnxon and Jam« Jlolllnijcr w l n out: there Is a n-cord for both tho :.uor and the advoc itc. lint It will take only a small part or IIollliiK ·'« tT^.Mio to get the jail In goad slvapc. anl he probably knen this Hi the time.
