THE H. A. A. AND DUST
The statement printed this morning concerning the extreme unpleasantness of the dust near the Stadium is only too true. There can be no question about the discomfort and unhealthfulness of feeling one's way through the yellow clouds of powdered road-bed; and we wonder why, when it is a source of annoyance to so many, this unsanitary condition is allowed to continue.
It is of course the duty of the city of Boston to care for its crowds; and when the dust from a short stretch of road destroys the pleasure and threatens the health of so many, it is reasonable that the road should be either watered or oiled. Since, however, the city does not seem over zealous to take the initiative, and since the Athletic Association is in part responsible for the handling of the crowd, we would suggest that the association make some arrangement with the street department whereby the dust will be laid.
