Industry Is Not Humane

Randolph S. Crider, age 17

Cleveland, Ohio USA



About 10 years ago the city fathers of Cleveland decided to make the river an entertainment zone. Randall’s painting shows the types of activities that go on along the banks of the Cuyahoga he shows people arguing, fighting, drinking and smoking hardly aware of the rivers beauty. Below the water are those who love the river going to battle for the sake of its future.

Respect your river. Can you imagine what it would be like to take your children and grandchildren to the river and all that there would be to show them is a dry river bed?


Editors Note: Nikia shows two sides of the Cuyahoga river, the past and present. The

students learned that one early settler reported that the Cuyahoga was so gutted with fish in the early days that one could walk across the

river on the backs of the fish. The indian on the left speaks of this abundance while the woman on the right weeps at the state of the river

today.
