" Final preparations are under way
for the opening of our chautauqua.
The dates for Tryon's three- day in
spirational community meet are Sep

Education for every American child.
The quickened spirit of democracy

crusade for real education and stak

the town the dynamic center of the
United Staets for three days.
The local Chautauqua promoters

And they are building with ideas.
The program is loaded with material.
THE FIGHTING YANKS a group
of military boys in the uniforms they
wore in France,, will "make the Chau
tauqua atmosphere vibrate with the
speed of .their rapid-fire entertain

with their distinctive repertory of
readings, impersonations characteri

fered by this group both for the
amusement values and for the edu
cational . benefits. These talented
players are artists in expression and
their acted episodes, solos and recit
als are expected to be of high cultu
The six lectures are not less mv
tertaining, witty, snappy and radiant
one is assured, but they have a very
serious purpose. The big, throbbing
question of the hour is Education,
The Chatauqua- orators and demon
strators will make this subject ring
-OL. G. A. GERHART, broad
eloquent, keen, analytical, construe
tive, the master of 5,000 audinces will
give the opening afternoon lecture
-on "THE LAMP OF ALADIN"
This lecture will be rememberd
long after the khaki tent has depart
ed. There will be stimulated brains
and aroused; emotion . before has

; MEN MAY KNOW' will promote
ideals of true . education, not ;of the
hands alone, nor yet df the head only
uut aiso' of the heart. '
! Aiie marshal of this fanrnA.i
tmsaae will be. the Chautauqua Di
ww wno, on the nio-hf f tl,0 00
)nd day will carry the, central theme
to . a practical level under, the . .topic
"THE PROBLEM OF THE UNPRE
PARED." The -Director j will inject
fresh elements into social j life and. in
snappy, live-wire phrases; ? awaken
us to the backward conditions of
American life. His third night topic
will be "PUSHING BACK THE HO-
RISON Individual, Home, , Commun
ity," a fertile subject that invites elo
quence and imagery but that affords
also a valuable basis for objective
instruction in ideals.
Of particular "significance will be
the, lecture on "HOME-MAKING"
and the conference on "THE HOUSE
AROUND THE CORNER" by the
Radcliffe Woman Specialist in Home
Engineering, on the afternoon of the
second day.. That she will be listened
to with absorbing, interest by both
men and women is the assurance giv
en because of the scientific impor
tance and practical nature of her
talk and her demonstration.
Miss Frances Breckenndge Maltby,
a graduate nurse, especially assigned
to this educational work by the Amer
ican Red Cross, will lecture on the
afternoon of the third day on "THE
RED CROSSA RECORD AND A
PROPHECY" and will hold an in
struction conference on HOME CARE
OF THE SICK." The American
Red Cross holds a unique place in the
affections of the people of al 1 the
world, and the message of its repre
sentative, carried to us under Rad
cliffe auspices, will be eagerly sought
The whole inspiring, educative pro
gram is symmetrically arranged.
There is something worth while for
everyone, and none need go 50 miles
from home to get lively entertain
ment and fresh cultural impulses,
when these are brought in such rich
measure right to the community. The
success of our Chautauqua can be
read in the striking features outlined
and in the sincerity of the commun
ity's purpose in arranging for it.

IMPORTANT FACTOR OF

A city. Is a big business institution.
Not merely in the business it under-;
takes of its own, but rather in the part
it plays in the business of the whole
community. -(V ' ' " ; -V 'rr-,':S-'
Take the comfort of its citizens, for;
Instance. I During the war the lumber
men found they had relatively little!
labor trouble in camps in which it was
possible for families to lfve a normal,;
wholesome life. - Schools, churches,:
medical attendance, amusements all
entered into the labor problem.
What was true in the camps is true
in every city. The comforts available
for people help to determine the busi
ness possibilities of the city. !
Another Important business factor
Is that of the traffic system. In addi
tion to street railway transportation,
there must be adequate trafflcways to
handle business. Jt must be possible
for people to get quickly and easily ?
from one part of the city to another
and it must be possible to deliver
goods readily. .
Would a large automobile plantbe
able to turn out Its enormous produc
tion of cars daily if it were cluttered
up, if its passageways were relatively
as narrow, and congested as those of
Kansas City? Kansas City Star.
