"Program and Vision," Which Hum
mel Blue-Penciled, Showt What
Supervisor Intended to Bo.
The "program and vision" of su
perintendent English of the Recrea
tion board, BtfbmlUed Thursday even
ing and ordered thrown In the waste
basket by Chairman Hummel, refers
to the following .features for the
forthcoming season: Playground
institute, playground supervisors,,
leaders on playground, athletic tests,
athletic meet, water carnival at Car
ter lake, Omaha day In the parks,
moving pictures, play festival, chil
dren's gardens, Municipal Athletic
association, directory, play schools
In block system, fresh air camps, boy
scouts and campfir glrla and minor
details In connection therewith.
The detailed program, aa prepared by
Mr. Engllah, hns this foreword: "The
summer season and its Corresponding ac
tivities looms up on the horizon as the
spring advances and prompts me to lay
before the board a progressive program
and a few Items which should be fos-
tered In developing publlo recreation."
Now that Mr. English has been bereft
of his automobile and denied approval of
his program, he is wondering just what
h should do. Chairman Hummel of the
Recreation board intimated that If Mir.
English Is a ' "good boy he may have
hla automobile back in a few days.
:-. Wants More Lights.
The .superintendent of recreation con
tends there should be a double shift of
playground , supervisors, tha women to
serve from 8:30 a. m. to 4 p. m., and
men supervisors from tha latter hour to
10:80 p. m. He states that more lights
should bo provided for the playgrounds.
On tha subject ,of leaders on play
ground, he suggests:'
"It is a difficult matter for one person
to handle so many children of so many
different ages. A suggestion that can be
carried out Is to delegate tha supervision
of groups by developing leaders who can
take care of Younger children. As a spe
cial mark of distinction, a small Inex
pensive badge could be awarded for their
work, and Interest."
Ornabav Day In rarki.
This comment Is offered on "Omaha
Day In the Parks":
"Soma Saturday In July, I would sug
gest the Recreation board create an
Omaha day In the 'parks, seeking the
co-operation of the Commercial club, Re
tailers' association and labor unions,
whereby they will close every place of
business in the city and have a grand
day in our beautiful parks, whore in each
park a special program will be provided
either by playground members, band con.
certs, moving pictures, picnics and ball
games. Tha people of Omaha will, to a
much greater degree, know what a won
derful system' of parka our city posses
sea. Many do not know of Mandan or
Spring Laka parks and moat of the South
Slda people do not know of Elmwood
park. Let us Introduce on 'a big acale
what Omaha possesses in parks, play
grounds and boulevards."
. The proposed play festival contemplates
folk dances and games, drills and stunts,
pageant of nations and other features.
Mr. English wants a federation of all
amateur athletlo organizations of the city
for promotion of clean sport and to raise
the stsndarda of sports in general.
Freak Air Camna.
Tha following recommendation regard
ing freah-alr campa did not rest well
with tha board; "Thoae who have auto
mobiles and some means to gat away dur
ing the hot summer days for a trip to
the Woods, camping and other forma eot
activities are fortunate. Hut a great ma
jority of working girls and young men
do not have the means nor place where
they could go to enjoy these outdoor ad
vantages. Within fifteen or twenty miles
of Omaha on the Elkhorn river and else
whera there are many beautiful and de
sirable places to form a camp. To take
the aupervtelon or at least promote the
project would be a very desirable piece
of woi for this board. As to financing
the project,- it is believed that a way
could be found if this board be willing
to foster such a move. It is a grand
thing to offer such an opportunity for
our working Class."
Day for Boys sat On farr Girls.
Mr. Connolly pointed out what he be
rteyed to be the dangera of propinquity
In connection with; a fresh air camp. Ha
aald the agoa between IS and 2S ara dan
gerous agea. Mr. Eng'lsh assured Mr.
Connelly that the gi-U would be taken
to camp on one day aad tha young men
on another jlay.
Tha , superintendent's report has this
conclusion: .
"It seems to me that our endeavor
should run along two lines of work. First,
to effect a basic and fundamental or
ganisation of playground, social center
and other movements which have to do
with tha leisure time problem of this city.
The second thing to do Is to educate the
people of Omaha in a new work In order
that a proper sympathy and enthusiasm
may be created. Without this we can
never hope to progress t or ask for larger

of the farmers. The chief purpose is to
stop the road-bulldlng propaganda. The
claim la that the scheme for paved roads
proceeds largely from the automobile
owners in the cities and towns and that
the burden of cost will fall largely upon
the farmers If there is any great expen

paving 'country roads unless some plan

cities and towns will pay- their share.

It Is anticipated that In a short time
there will be made publlo a report of a
special committee of college men on a
survey of the ' state colleges of Iowa
which will recommend ' very material

a vast' improvement in conditions at the
colleges. It is well known that there is
far too great expense connected with the
various colleges which tha state supports,
'the -chief purpose in having the survey
made at the request of the State Board
of Education was to open tha way for
reforms long needed, but on which expert
advice .was desired first. Some of the
betterments suggested will probably meet
with much opposition. The board has al
ready, been much hampered In Us work
by. reason of political influences making
headway against changes.
