Why Not a Community
Chest for Omaha?
Your Suggestions Invited
'fl The "Onward Omaha in 1921" ban
quet will take place at the City Auditori
um Thursday night. That's a good slo
gan. tEvery resident of Omaha-should
manifest deep interest in everything that
makes for Omaha's advancement. The
progress of the city has Been remarkable,
but there is, of course, ample room for
11 Suggestions on this line are in order.
We suggest for 1921 a Community
Chest for Omaha, it would be a most
popular reform for men, women and
children who have been embarrassed Jby
innumerable "tag days."
The city of Cleveland has had a very
successful 'experience with the "Com
munity Chest." The Community chest
represents a community fund gathered ,
in the community to meet community
needs. Cleveland has just completed a
nine-day effort to fill its 1921 Communi
ty Chest. For that purpose it raised $4,
500,000. Cleveland has carried out this
Dlan for several years. The story is told
by the Cleveland Plain-Dealer in this
The "chest" represents the easiest, satest and
most adequate method. of handling a great city's
charities. Formerly, it was the custom for each
charitable organization to conduct its own ap
peal for funds. "Tag days" were frequent. No
sooner was one campaign over than another was
announced. , The path of the busy citizen was
beset with solicitors whose pleas, in the main,
were for meritorous projects.
flWith the adent of the "chest" idea all this
was changed. "Tag days" are abolished. In
stead of many campaigns for funds, we have but
one one week of organized fund raising by
representatives of every authenticated - chari
table organization in the city. The public is
saved annoyance, time and expense. The old
objects are accomplished with less friction and
loss and new activities permitted which could
not be undertaken before.
ft Why not a Community Chest for Oma
ha? Surely the generous hearted peo
ple of this city are entitled to relief from
the embarrassment of the ever recurring
