Failure Of Pittsburgh Charter
Due To Absurd Rule,Says Reed




"Though strongly endorsed by
the people of Allegheny county, Pa.,
in the recent popular election, the
Pittsburgh charter failed to win a
sufficient number of votes to be-
come law," declared Prof. Thomas
H. Reed of the political science de-
partment in a recent comment on
the defeat of the charter drafted
by him and providing for the par-
tial consolidation of the govern-
ment of the Pittsburgh with that
of Allegheny county. "Its failure-
was not due to any popular dis-
approval of its principle or to pop-

a majority vote in favor of the
Icharter, while one was tied. The
city of Pittsburgh voted more than
eight to one in favor, and the coun-
ty outside Pittsburgh gave it a ma-
jority of 3,612.
The essential nature of the "me-
tropolitan plan" embodied in the
recently defeated charter was the
consolidation of the city and coun-
ty of Pittsburgh, while still pre-
serving to the smaller political di-
visions of the county their cor-
porate personality and certain
enumerated powers.
