Planning Ahead for Schools.
It seems to us that tho first place
where the city planning ldoa should
find application in Omaha is with
rofcrenco to tho futuro expansion of
our public schools. This suggestion
s not by way of criticism or fault
finding, but of constructive prog
ress. The osBonco oi tne ciiy plan
ning Idea is to look, ahead and map
out in advance what appears to bo
desirable in municipal dovelopmont,
and tc work along in directions that
promise eventual arrival at the land
ing placo.
