THE CATHEDRAL IN BERLIN Berlin has been a city for many generations, but today it is almost as new as if it had arisen on our western prairie. No other city in Europe has grown so rapidly in the last 40 years, and, with its suburbs, it has a population todayofmore than three and ahalf million. The growth of New York and Chicago has been wonderful, but not more so than that of the capital on the Spree. Itisthe largest city inthe world built on a definite plan. Its broad streets and its magnificent driveways; its splendid churches, of which the cathedral isthedominant example; its handsome residences, and its well-designed business buildings combine to give it a charming aspect that compensates for itsnewness.
