THE FRANKLIN PRESS and THE HIGHLANDS MACON I AN
THURSDAY, OCTOBER JT, 1931
WASHINGTON . . . distance
Many years ago someone called
Washington "the city of magnifi
cent distances," and the appellation
has stuck. I was again reminded
of it last week, when on a trip to
the Nation's capital I had to call
at a dozen or more Federal offices.
Washington is more like the
great European cities than any oth
er American municipality. Its
growth has been horizontal instead
of vertical. About the tallest build
ing in the city is the National
Press Gub, and that is only 13
stories. Most of the Government
buildings are under six stories high.
It is not at all uncommon to
have to travel three or four miles,
or farther, to get from one Gov
ernment building to another, and in
the course of a day around Fed
eral offices the visitor has to walk
along literally miles of corridors.
It occurred to me that one of
the reasons why Government busi
ness takes so long to transact may
be the time and energy wasted in
getting from one office to another.
Washington is not geared up to
speed and efficiency.
BEAUTY in marbla
Major L'Enfant, the brilliant
Frenchman who planned the Fed
eral city, conceived it as the most
beautiful city in the world. It
seems more beautiful every time I
visit it and I've known Washing
ton since 1881. In another fifty
years there will be nothing to com
pare with it for beauty.
The Supreme Court moved into
the most beautiful of all Washing
ton buildings, last week. It is built
all of white marble. Outside, Ver
mont marble, corridors of Alabama
marble, interior courts of Georgia
marble, floors of Italian, Spanish
and African marble.
Everything about the building is
freshly new and gleaming, except
the Justices' chairs. They it in
the old, comfortable chairs they are
accustomed to. When it was pro
posed to buy a new chair for Jus
tice Cardozo, he replied that the
old chair that was good enough for
Justice Holmes for 20 years was,
good enough for him.
TENANTS .... everywhere
In spite of the multitude of Gov
ernment buildings, there isn't room
for all the new Federal offices.
Uncle Sam is the biggest tenant in
Washington. After taking all the
available office space in town, pub
lic offices are spreading out into
hotels, apartments and private
houses.
Some of the "temporary" build
ings put up during the World War
are still in use by Federal offices.
Uncle Sam is Washington's largest
taxpayer. He pays half the cost
of running the District of Colum
bia. In return for the Federal
Government's assumption of the tax
burden, the people of the District,
60 years ago, gave up their right
to vote on local affairs. If they
want to vote on state or national
questions, they can do so in their
old home towns.
HOUSING problem
I hear a lot about the "housing
shortage," but I don't know of
any place where it is as acute as
in Washington. More than 100,000
new Federal employees have been
trying to crowd into the city in
the past two years. There just
isn't room for them.
I heard of one landlord who had
145 applications on file for his next
vacancy. Another built a 50-family
apartment house and rented every
apartment from the plans before
the foundations were in ! Rents
are down most everywhere else,
but not in Washington.
One result has been the spilling
of population away out into the
Maryland suburbs and across the
Potomac into the beautiful Vir
ginia hills. I met one Federal of
ficial who "commutes" to Washing
ton every day from his home in
Baltimore, forty miles distant.
FLAG ....... the slalute
I read in the papers the other
day that a Boston schoolboy had
been disciplined for failing to sa
lute the flag. Somehow, I don't
feel that compulsion is the best
way to instill patriotism.
Saluting the flag is no evidence
Flaming Temples
K ..wsfiaF
NEW YORK ... The f lame-pa.
das of Cambodian Temples are inter
preted into the above colorful faQ
hat, a new creation which takes de
signers' breath away. . . . It i
of' black velvet trimmed with cut
out leaves and graced with main
colored zinnias.
af how anybody really feels. It is
a meaningless gesture unless it
comes from the heart out. In
Germany under Hitler everybody
is forced to salute the Nazi em
blem, but you can't make me be
lieve they all mean it.
If I could teach every child what
our flag really means the first
thing I' would try to make them
understand is that it does not
stand and never has stood for com
pulsion, even compulsion to salute
it. If Old Glory means anything,
it means to me at least the com
pletest liberty of every individual
under it to believe and behave as
he pleases, so long as he doesn't
try to interfere with other people's
beliefs and behavior.
