It is u little disconcerting, therefore, to learn tlmt a cenaus taken by the Outdoor Advertising association shows tlmt 95 per cent, of all billboard) are in the cities, and only 5 \w cent, in the country. Against a billboard in town, it i* difficult In muster the indignation' that i) felt a gainst those that litter the green country. Cities are almost inevitably strident: signs of infinite variety are indispensable to public convenience no tew than to busin«i. Moreover, the billboard in town seldom conceals anything worth seeing. It find) iu natural location around un)ighlly vacant tot) and in other places where I can hardly be called a detriment to the genera! jccticiy, The Outdoor Advertising association, indeed, ha* clererly presented a number of photographs of vacant cily lots before and after the erection of billboards, with the query. "Which do you prefer?" The contrast between refuse-littered, weed-grown plots and the tidy if blatant pooler board leave) no room for choice. It could be objected that there are methods of making vncanl lots more attractive than ly concealing them behind signs, but the billboard men would Ixt perfectly justified in pointing out that owner) simply do not put the other method) into practise. A more forceful objection might '« made of the fact that, since by tkir own figures, rural biltljoards constitute only (iw° per cent, of the businoj, and presumably even less « contribution to profits. the Outdoor advertisers could well nfford to give up these country displays in return for tht good-will gained by a contribution to scenic beauty, Such a movp would he effective out of all proportion lo the number of standard billbotirdi affected.

U scents a strange thing that these elementary facts about modern living conditions have been, as yet, so little considered in the laying out of real estate additions. The old-fashioned town tot in American cities, whether we realize it or not, look its shape from the fact that horses were used in transportation. To live comfortably on the same lot with a horjc, it was necessary lo liave lots narrow and deep, thus removing the bain at the back ai far as possible from the liouse at the front. The alley had an important part in the scheme, because bulky hay had to be delivered to ihe barn. The individual driveway from the front wax thus of less ·importance, For anautomobile age, the more logical building lot is wide and shallow. The garage can be placed close to tlie house, or built in a) an integral part, but the drive-way can not be conveniently shared with a neighbor, and tt i) highly desirable to havr room enough to luvn a machine around, Unchallenged tradition, however, cause) most additions to be laid out to tlie present day in accordance with a tclicme that was designed to fit the horse and buggy.

HARDY- HAT reminds roe .of an Incident," says Henry Ryecroft. "Near tuunlet, in a, lonely spot by a woodslde, I come upon a little lad of perhaps ttu yearn old who, his head hidden in his arms against a tree trunk, was crying bitterly. I asked him what was tho matter, and after a little trouble--he was better than a more bumpkin--1 learnt that having been sent with *lx- pence to pay a debt, he hod lost the money. "The poor little fellow was In a state of mind which In a grave man would be called the anguish of despair; hs must havo been crying a long time; every muscle in his face quivered as It under torture; hla limbs shook; bin eyes, his voice uttered such misery as only tho vilest criminal could be made to suffer. "I could have shod tears with him--tears, of pity and of rage at all the spectacle Implied, On a day of Indescribable glory, when earth and heaven shed benedictions upon the soul of man, a child, whose nature would have bidden him rejoice, OB only childhood may, wept his heart out because his hand had dropped a six-penny place! "The loss was a very serious one, and he knew It; he was less afraid to face his, parents, than overcome by misery at the thought of the harm he had done them. 131* pence dropped by the wayside, and a whole family mad« wretched! Wrmt aro the due descriptive terms for n state of 'civilisation' in which such a thing AH this 10 possible? T put my hand In my pockets and wrought six pennyworth of miracle. "It took me half an hour to recover my quiet of mind. After all, it Is as idle to ruge against man's fatuity as to hope that ho will ever be less a fool." , Here vro havo a ilctur« of the reHulla of bitter poverty nnl ft man's rnllleiy nffolnut it. Whom In Mr. Ryecroft blaming for this grief of a boy that has lost 12 cents? A society, probably, thitl can Uevlso no method than that a whole family should be made wretched by what to most people should be a trivial misfortune. Heading iho Incident, I found myself with a deep sympathy lor the boy. Sent on an errand to the store, and swinging my hand In which wai Insecmoly held a 10 cent piece, I allowed tho money to drop in the long gram beside the path. Frightened as I -was, T presume my seaieh was hurrted and careless. Children seldom know how to make a systematic hunt for anything. I did not mark the «lot. I run and told my mother. Ten cent pieces couM not be thrown away In our family. She took up the search, and I have a picture or her now, bending down the timothy along tho path the whole distance tlmt I had traveled. Hy day was spoiled, On another occasion, bringing home half a dollar') worth of suffar from the otore I lost half of It. The grocer had tied tho aack Insocwely . The string slipped and to my consternation tho contents poured away like so much water. I was threatened with a licking, Other members of tho family managed lo scoop up some of the sugar It wai n trying experience Nov can 1 romswnbor that my soriow on ilieso two occasions ever brought any moral insson.

Unlike Mr. Ryocroft, I O.o not rail oKain-it uoclely for Ihe irrief of Ui« unhappy boy. Money [a a convenient symbol of exchange. It hns the disadvantage Hiat it can easily be lost and If currency In the smaller denominations Is losl ·out of doors It Is almost Impossible to find it, If the boy had been a savage, or If ho had lived 3,000 years earlier when barter was direct exchange of goodi, lie might havt boan cartying a llva 1% or a chicken .

A child, who knows nothing of abatrnclions, doesn't blnmo anybody He merely feels miserable when he must go to school with torn shoes. Girls, I suspect, suffer more than Ivoyn. I asked a glH recently when she IMt bugun to notice clothes and express In them that delight which U a feminine characteristic. Her answer rather suntviscd me. "T usod to hate new clothes," she »ald.

Even as a baby she had her positive Ideas as to design, ToachoiR and noclol workers pi-obtibly are familiar with tlte embarrassment of a gill whose clothes do not come up to thoie ol her friends, and I suspect that those fine moin.1 aphorisms to the effect that "It's charnctcr, not Clothes" that count, which elders are so fond of quoting, are small comfort.

Suburban Heights -- The Owl Train Cuba Needs a Revolution, Bu t Cant Have One Because American Bankers, Marines, Veto It By DHAKIJW P. STEWART (Central I-IWHS Stuff Writer) WASHINGTON--Yankee Influence, as is grows in Latin America, unquestionably will make for a certain sort of prosperity there, That is, it will make the Latin American Intel- igcntsla prosperous, There Is not much intelligentsia in .atln America, however. It seem* unlikely that there ever will b*. The monies are better off in Argentina nd Uruguay than In any other Latin Liner lean countries; oven in these lie submerged poilion of the popular Ion is a tremendous percentage of he total. Uluu fur KevoluUou Seme folk may argue that there will be an Improvement under North \mcrlcan Influence, but It does not car to have worked twit that way n Cuba. On the contrary, Cuba Boeuis riper or a revolution than any of the Latin republics which actually have ·tad them recently. Senator Walsh f Massachusetts arrived home from Havana the other day, predicting ne. Senator William H, King of Jtah gays that a Cuban revolution Not only la due, but that there ught to be one. Information at the American Federation of Labor's Latin-American division Is to the same effect It is a udgment from which thcie virtually are no dissent- nt except at President Machado'e wn ambasay In Washington. Nevertheless, Cuba cannot have a full-Hedged revolution for the simple reason that the would-be rovolutlon- sts know the United Slates Immc- tutcly would intervene to suppress t. Even so, they may revolt, in the opo that Uncle Sam at leiiit Will rco them from Machado; still, they o not like the idea of government or awhile by American Oevll dogs, ithcr. American Approval f Yitt tt Is not so safe a hoc (hut Undo Bum would depone Machudo. Tho popular supposition in'that he holds office with the approval of .mcrlcan banking, sugar and tobac* o interests In his homo island. At uny rate, they aro accused In Havana f putting up the money to secure his re-election in 1928 (though it* was pledged to one term) and In get- ing the constitution so amended as o lengthen it from four to six years --a technically legal proceeding, but ttacked (W fraudulently accomplished. If true, American banking, lugar and tobacco must like him, and they may reasonably be believed to have onslderabta pull with the state department. Of course It is possible that the resident has fallen out with Ms banking, sugar and tobacco friends. There also are rumors that he has nnoyed the state department with Is attitude, en Cuba's part, In connection with recent League of No- Ions proceedings. While possible, It seem* highly Im- irobablc that Don Geravdo ha* been so imprudent as to alienate tuch support, considering his apparent Indif- erence to Cuban public sentiment-and consequent necessity for outside acklng to offset his own folk's re- entmenl. Account* Vague Up-to-date accounts of his acttvl- les are vague, due to the high morality rate among those who crltlclte 1m, but their general purport Is that he is running a dictatorship In comparison with which Mussolini'* Is mild.
