During the early part Of the present year Mr. Cross, assisted by Mr. R. H. Leavell, made a rapid survey Of Springfield, Missouri, the object of which was, to point out the principal community needs; to indicate practical methods for meeting these needs; to make clear the existence within the city Of abundant resources for the reorganization and development Of agencies of betterment. The survey was greatly limited by time and necessary funds. Hence, no attempt was made to make any detailed investigations, but rather, to outline a constructive policy to be followed for a period Of years. One of a series Of studies undertaken by the different departments Of the Civic Federation of New Haven, was an Industrial Survey of a New Haven District made in 1912-13. The purpose Of this study was to secure reliable data in regard to 1. Earnings, 2. Expenditures, and 3. Living Conditions of a group of working people of New Haven. While the general nature of the investigation was similar to the Stock Yards budget study, it was much more rapid and less detailed and accurate.
