COMMUNITY BUILDING Figure A LECTURE FOR COMMUNITY BUILDERS By FRANK O. KREAGER COMMUNITY BUILDING Community Realization, Community Problems, Community Wealth and Welfare, Community Organization, Community Spirit Community Life Individual problems can be solved by the individual; national problems require the strength and effort of an entire nation; community problems can be solved neither by the individual nor by the nation, but must be mastered by the united co-operative efforts of the community, thinking and working as a community. This address is intended especially for clubs and organizations that are ambitious to become the active, vital force in developing the community to its maximum of efficiency, welfare and happiness. A Few Press Comments The address was punctuated with continuous applause, and more was demanded even after the speaker had overstepped the time allowed him.— Spokesman-Review, Dec., 1911. (Address before the National Country Life Congress.) He impresses one as being capable of exact thought, and unquestionably he is a fluent and vigorous speaker.— Moscow Mirror, Dec. 15, 1904. Mr. Kreager is an interesting talker who does not hesitate for eloquent words and phrases by which to express his thoughts. His address, which was generously applauded, appears on pages 36 and 37.— The American Lumberman, Chicago, Feb. 22, 1913. Mr. Kreager is a clear, forcible, entertaining and instructive speaker. His illustrations are drawn from common experience and well suit his strong, common sense philosophy.— Rockford Progress, Dec. 21, 1914. Prof. Kreager's address on Community Building, was interesting and instructive, and was listened to attentively. The Republic doubts if the people of Palouse ever heard an address which pointed more clearly the necessity of co-operative work for the common good and gave more practical ideas of how this work can best be accomplished.— Palouse Republic, June 11, 1915. The community lecture by Prof. Kreager was one of the finest public lectures that has ever been offered here. A second hand reproduction of the lecture lacks the personality of the man. In his quick, resolute, vigorous, epithetic style, Prof. Kreager pierces through into the marrow of his question, and speaks his verdict with emphasis that cannot be forgotten. Not in Prof. Kreager's style only does his power lie, but in his message as well. He is sincere, he has something to say, he believes what he says, and he wants the people to get it.— Island County Times, Coupeville, Dec. 5, 1913. OUR COMMUNITY As a community do we have our bearings? Or is our motto, We don't know where we're going but we're on our way? Has our community found itself industrially? Any readjustments needed? What part in the national economic game is our community to play? Battery? Or Pigtail? Are we doing team work? Any of us pulling back in the breeching instead of forward in the collar? Have we a full head of steam? Or just enough to toot the whistle? Are we building our community by plans and specifications approved and accepted? Or are we building hap-hazard, a room at a time? Are we steadily building? Or spasmodically boosting? Or peacefully sleeping on the job? Does our community investment of brains and labor pay dividends? What would a community inventory show? Any waste of resources? power? labor? ideas? Are we living? Or just getting? Is our real income of welfare and happiness in proportion to our material income of money and goods? Are we leaving our children a community that is the better for our having lived in it? Sometimes a Commercial Club, with aspirations to make its town the Hub of an Empire, begins by sawing off all the spokes close up to the hub. FOR INFORMATION, ADDRESS FRANK O. KREAGER PULLMAN, WASH.
