- 2 -if drunk, they are not called, should they carry a bottle and becomeincapacitated, their work could be cared for by fellow trainmen, but if logey from the loss of sleep resulting from their rest period being spent st the gaming table there is no way of offsetting this dangerous condition and the road suffers the consequences.Second: the red light district existing here is of such size and so conveniently located, immediately adjacent to the business district, that it presents a greater menace than that usually found in a town of this size. The considerations that I have given to meas-ures for offsetting the lure of the red light district lead me to the conclusion that it can only be brought about by providing such facil-ities as would provide entertainment for both sexes. Chief among these would be an assembly hall in the building of liberal dimensions where dances and other entertainments could be held. In my opinion, this room should be large enough so that the attendance at these functions would not be limited to employes and their ladies, but would be adequate to any reasonable demand that might be made upon it when considered from a community standpoint; thus enabling the employes to extend in-vitations to the towns people and bring about a broader and more whole-some relationship.In 1913, when the question of the welfare building was being considered, the tentative pencil sketches herewith enclosed were pre-pared and these ideas were incorporated in them and you will note that ihese plans were on a modest scale aad 1 send them only with the ideathat they will by graphic illustration assist in making plain to you my ideas at this time.After serving your purpose, will you kindly return pencil sketches for my files.Yours very truly,B/HCC--R.
