A settlement in Hull House brings to its aid all possible methods to reveal and make common its conception of life. All those arts and devices which express kindly relation from man to man, from charitable effort to the most specialized social intercourse, are constantly tried. This chapter considers the experience of a resident of a settlement who cares a great deal for that aspect and history of life, which has been portrayed in the fine arts. The resident finds the use of the public school constantly limited because it occupies such an isolated place in the community. If it is one function of a settlement to hold a clue as to what to select and what to eliminate in the business of living, it would bring the same charge of overwrought detail against the university extension lectures. The teachers in the night schools near Hull House struggle with Greeks and Armenians, with Bohemians and Italians, and many another nationalities.
