City Layouts

To Change

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following arti-
cle presents a sociologist's point of view
on the prospects of planned decentraliza-
tion of American cities in the future.
Planning of American communities
in the future will entail provisions
for social and administrative pro-
cedure as well as for the physical
aspects, Prof. A. H. Hawley, of the
sociology department stated in an in-
terview yesterday.'
"Only if such planning is con-
ducted by persons trained in the
social sciences as well as in archi-
tecture and engineering," he ex-
plained, "is it likely to be success-
ful." Prof. Hawley applied this with
particular force to a project such as
that contemplated in the British
Town and Country scheme for ur-
ban decentralization, which is an
attempt to solve the problem of
0erly-congested English cities by
creating so-called "satellite"
Agreeing with the report of the
British New Towns Committee, which

urges that young people with drivej
and imagination help in planning thes
great "essay in civilization," Prof.
Hawley asserted that planning is a
new industry that will naturally fall
to the youth of America to make suc-
"Planning goes awry," he declared,
"because there is not enough em-
phasis on the social aspect; without
effective social planning, physical
planning is inefficient and costly. As
an example, you can not provide good1
education by constructing beautiful1
buildings nor can you create a thriv-
ing metropolis with beautiful park-1
If systematic decentralization is
to be accomplished successfully
within the American economic
scheme, he continued, a way must
be found to combat vested interests,
complacency, and fear of change.
This will necessitate a program of
intensive education to convince
people of the need for su hi a pro-
Meeting the cost of the project,
which entails the "absorption of spe-
culative values" by some group, is
another problem that will have to be
met. Under the British plan, a single
public agency will be responsible for
the development of each new town
and for the expansion of existing
