this background in mind any community must thoroughly
realize that the efforts of community upbuilding tend to-
ward evolution. It therefore becomes of the' utmost im-
portance to each of us to realize that the Chamber is an
organization through which public-spirited citizens in a
community may express themselves collectively on ques-
tions of community welfare and through which they may
make their collective desires effective. Cities do not hap-
pen-co-operation builds them. In business as in life, lhe
gets most out of it who gives most to it. The dividends are
based on the investment. The Chamber has a membership
of 600 leading citizens.
    An important function of the Directory is to set forth
the characteristics and advantages of the city as a place
of residence, as a business location, as an industrial site
and as an educational center. The Directory acts as a
mirror, reflecting all that is noteworthy in the city in the
above respects. In order to spread this information re-
garding the city broadcast over the country the publishers
place copies of this issue of the Directory in Directory
Libraries which are maintained in all the larger cities
of the country, where they are readily available for refer-
ence use by the public. There they serve as perpetual
advertisements of Appleton, for business men the country
over realize that the City Directory represents the com-
munity as it really is.
    The publishers take this opportunity of thanking the
citizens for valuable assistance rendered in the way of
furnishing information concerning themselves and their
friends for this Directory, and also the public-spirited and
progressive business and professional men for support
given in the way of patronage.
