I CITIZENSHIP. I The appeal addressed to the Times by the Civic Arts A&soci- j at; n in support of its programme for me creation of better citizens by I means of a realisation of individual duties in v the improvement of the j national and communal life has I considerable interest for us in Swansea. The committee of the Association sees the doctrine of th0 obligation of eac h citizen to take his or her share in maintainmg order and promoting the welfare of the I Stafce, "making itgelf felt with more clearness than hitherto" n the recent unrest of all classes. We wonder who, looking on at muni- cipal Swansea, would be sum- I ciently optimistic to say this of it? We wish it could be said with abso lute truth, for nothing is more cer- I I tain than that for the problems ahead of us we need the clear think. ing, and some of the time, of all our best brains in whatever section of the community. Instead of which we have municipal elections I in which the interest is of th I mildest description. Some will blame the business men, and par- I ticularly the Docksmen with then* financial knowledge, for having ne, for li,tv i n,, j taken so small a share in the task. We can guess something of what their reply would be. It is to shirlr tesponsibility, as the Civic Arts I Association points out, t-o say, What have I to do with the ap- pearance of this to\mâpresum- ably it is in the hands of experts, who are doing what is wanted'?" How is the attitude to be described if the question, as with us, is not only one of appearance but of high policy and of financial stability? âââââ .ââââ I
