What About Our Parks
The Women's Study Club has
placed two long tables in the south
park for the convenience of the
public and are putting forth every
effort to make the park presentable
and useful. But they cannot do it
all. They should have the hearty
co-operation of other clubs of the
town, the business men and the
citizens in general.
Have you noticed the neglected
and unsightly conditions of our
parks? The trees need trimming,
the weeds and dead grass should
be renjoved. The platform needs
repairing and seats are sadly need-
ed. All these and other improve-
ments could be made at a very
small c-ost that would greatly im-
prove the appearance and also put
the park in condition for public
gatherings, picnics, etc. Many
hands make light work. Let each
one do what they can, if it is only
to furnish a wooden bench.
