BeschreibungExcerpt from Wacker's Manual of the Plan of Chicago: Municipal Economy
Chicago is destined to become the center of the modem world, if the opportunities in her reach are intelligently realized, and if the city can receive a sufficient supply of trained and enlightened citizens.
Actuated by this belief, the author bus mapped out the part Chicago school children are to play in creating the greater Chicago of the future. Chicago must grow to conform to a scientific plan to replace the makeshift that has tried to keep pace with the city's development in the past and to make this possible it most have a citizenship trained in its duties. A large proportion of the graduates from our schools remain in Chicago for their professional or business lives, and this book is intended to fit them to take an intelligent part as future citizens of a groat city in carrying out the Plan of Chicago.
Love of country, the feeling which is inherent in every normal boy and girl, and which is expressed by them throughout, their lives in their many acts of patriotic devotion, is, by development of our civilization, being given a companion sentiment - devotion and passionate interest in the safety and welfare of our cities. This now feeling of community patriotism, an outgrowth of modern conditions of life, takes the form generally of a high and controlling pride in one's native city, or in the city in which one abides and has adopted as his home.
Modern educators and leaders in public affairs, noting the birth and rise of this patriotic impulse in our cities, see in it a great factor for future good for the country. They see in it the approach of good government in the cities and the end of evil administration of our communities. They see, too, that development and cultivation of this impulse means good effects of the most stable and lasting character upon our national institutions by a deepening, broadening, and intensifying of national patriotism.
