London.—Skyscrapers have not

planning advisor to the English
Unwin has Just returned from a
visit to the United States, where
he acted as advisor to the New
York municipality on town planning
In & paper read to the Royal In
stitute of British architects, Unwin
exploded the beliefs of people who,
he said, return from visiting Amer.Vca
with glowing accounts of the sky
scrapers, and urged the Institute not
to consider the introduction of tho
"upward" method of expanding
cities, which he considered a menace
to the health of the community.
"With every added story the ef
fective floor area per story is re
duced,” said Unwin, In discussing
the office building problem as relat
ing to New York, “the cost per
square foot is increased, while the
greater number of elevators required
take their toll of space from each
“Every story added tends to dark

of the bright light of New York this
is becoming Increasingly evident, and
the number of rooms In which arti

greater than in England,” continued
•'New York Is discovering that you
cannot dispense with transportation
by going up. You merely change the
horizontally moving street car for
the vertically traveling elevator.
“Increased height means increased
traffic congestion, while the darken

other way than the use of skyscrap

Howloon does not return! It made
me feel chilly all over my cookie
body when he spoke of eating us!”
“I do not believe the Hungry How
loon will return!” the nice kind Snltz
noodle said; wishing to make Mrs.
Cookie feel happier.
“No!” He will not return, I am
sure!" little Weeky said.
But both little Weeky and the
Snltznoodle were mistaken, for In a
very short time, here came the Hun

he hammered on the door.

Cookie said "Then if we have a rain
we will be in an awful fix!”
“You run home!” Raggedy Ann
called through the door to the Hungry

Hungry Howloon howled, “Hookie the

“Hookie the Goblin does not own
the nice kind Cookie people!” Rag
gedy Ann replied, "and besides, there
are only five cookie people here!”
“Then I shall eat all five of them!”
the Hungry Howloon promised.
“Dear me!" Mrs. Cookie cried,
“What shall we do?”
“There is nothing we can do, Mrs.
Cookie!” Raggedy Ann said, "He will
get tired pretty soon and go away!*1
Then through the door Raggedy Ann
said to the Hungry Howloon, “You’d
better run home! Your mama wants
you. I am sure!"

Raggedy Ann couldn't think of any
thing to reply to this; In fact, she
felt sorry for anyone who did not
have a nice kind mama.
The Howloon waited a few min
utes, then he began thumping hard
er and harder on the door.
“My gracious! He will break It In,
In a minute!” Mrs. Cookie said.
And in a minute, that is Just what
the Hungry Howloon did. He broke
the door right eft of its candy hinges
and came walking Into the cookie
The Hungry Howloon had never
seen either the Raggedys, the Snitz

people before, so he did not know
which was whloh, "Show me the

As no one answered him, the Hun
gry Howloon caught Raggedy Andy,
”1 ehall start eating this one!” he
Raggedy Andy knew it wouldn’t
hurt him, even if the Howloon should
eat him, for Raggedy Andy was made
of cloth and stuffed with cotton, so
Raggedy Andy just smiled his paint
ed smile and did not say a word. Mrs.
Cookie though did not care to see
the Howloon eat Raggedy Andy, so
she said, "That's Raggedy Andy!
You mustn't eat him! I am Mrs.
Then the Hungry Howloon let go
of Raggedy Andy and caught Mrs.
Cookie, "Then I shall eat you!” he
The Hungry Howloon broke the
cake door right off the candy hinges
and walked into the house of Mr. and
He caught Raggedy Andiy first and
said that he would eat him but brave
Mrs. Cookie told the Howloon that
she was one of the Cookie people, not
Raggedy Andy. So the Hungry How
loon let go of Raggedy Andy and
caught Mrs. Cookl. "Then I shall
eat you!” he said.
The kind Snitznoodle and little
Weeky and Ragged^ Andy held their
breaths for they expected any minute
to see the Hungry Howloon start
nibbling on Mrs. Cookie, for she was
made of chocolate dough and covered
with candy icing.
The Hungry Howloon turned, the
Cookie lady over ana over. "Which
is the proper way to eat Cookie peo
ple?” he asked. "Shall I begin at
the foot, or at the head?”
"I shouldn’t begin at all, if I were

cried as he put Mrs. Cookie down ;
In a chair, “Then we will wrestle! j
But I warn you Raggedy Andiy that

“Ha!” Raggedy Andy said as he
rolled up his sleeves, “Howl all you

"Walt a minute!” the Hungry How

ed as he rolled his sleeves down again.
"ONE! TWO! THREE!” the
Bnltznoodle cried and Raggedy Andy
and the Hungry Howloon rushed at
each other. It soundtd like Raggedy
Andy had struck a bass drum when
he lilt the Howloon, and before his
friends knew what had happened,
Raggedy Andy had picked up the
Hungry Howloon and threw him clear
across the room so that the Howloon
hit against, the sharp corner of the
organ. The Hungry Howloon seem
ed quite surprised. He stood there
real still and everyone heard a low
whistle. Then they saw a sad look
spread over the Hungry Howloon'*
face and saw hi* knees begin to sag
under him. No one said a word un
til the Hungry Howloon shrunk and
wrinkled and shrunk until he ragged
to the floor and lay there, a wrinkled
“Why J” Raggedy Ann said In sur
prise. “The Hungry Howloon Is only
rnude of rubber and he was punctured
when ho hit the organ! Poor thing!
No wonder he was always hungry, he
was as empty as a foot ball.” And
Raggedy Ann felt so sorry for the
Hungry Howloon, she picked him up
and draped him over a cookie chair.
“There’s the puncture!” she said,
“Let ue fix It up and pump him tip
again! Anyway, look here!” she
cried. "The Hungry Howloon never
had a mouth, so he could not have
eaten the cookie people after all.
And this was Indeed true, so they
had all had their fright for nothing,
which Is often the case. ,
Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy
and their friends were very much
surprised when Raggedy Andy wres
tled the Hungry Howloon and threw
him against the sharp corner of the
organ In Mrs. Cookie's front, room.
For, when the Hungry Howloon
hit the sharp corner of the organ. It
punched a hole in him.
Then when the Hungry Howloon
shrunk and wrinkled and finally
sagged to the floor, they all knew he
was made of rubber, Just like a foot
Raggedy Ann felt sorry for the
Hungry Howloon, so she picked him
up and draped him over a chair.
“No wonder he was so hungry all
the time!" Raggedy Ann said. "He
Is as empty as a toy balloon! And
then too, he could not have eaten a
Single one of the Cookie people, fos
the Hungry Howloon has no mouth!-"
This was indeed true.
Raggedy Ann sent little AVeeky out
to the grocery to get a small tube of
rubber tire cement and while little
Weeky was away. Raggt*3y Ann sat
thinking and thinking.
Finally she said, “I feel sorry for
the poor Hungry Howloon! He is so
empty and hollow! Now if we could
only fill him up with feathers, or
cotton or something like that, he
would not feel so hungry all the
"Raggedy Ann always thinks of
some kindness!” the nice Snitxnoodle
“That Is because Raggedy Ann has
a candy heart!” Raggedy Andy re
"It is very nice to think of nice,
kindly things!” the Cookie man said,
"And It Is very much nicer when she
thinks of the kind things after the
other creature has tried to harm us.
I too, feel sorry for the Hungry
Howloon and I think It would be nice
to stuff him with Ice cream and nice
things like that!"
"So do 1!’’ Mrs. Cookie said "I will
run out to the kitchen and get some
“But the ice cream will melt!”
Raggedy Ann said, “Let us All him
with cake chickens and lolly pops
and cookies covered with candy Icing
and things like that, then he will nev
er be empty!”
So Mrs. Cookie brought out six
cake chickens, two cake turkeys and
a stuffed cookie duck and Raggedy
Ann took a pair of small scissors
and snipped a hole In the Hungry
Howloon’a rubber side, so that the
cakes could ba stuffed inside.
Then they put in lolly pops but
took the sticks off first, so they would
not punch through the Howloon's
rubber sides and puncture him If he
sat down on them. This was all done
when little Weeky returned with the
tube of rubber cement and a piece
of patching rubber. And it only took
a minute for the rubber patch to Ax
the Howloon up almost as good as
Then when he wee blown up, the
Hungry Howloon laughed and said,
“I am not a bit hungry any more, so
I shall not eat any of you!”
And Mrs. Cookie was so glad of this,
she hugged the Hungry Howloon and
told him he could always live at the
cookie house. So that is how an
other friend was added to the little
party, and why every one was so
