Concerted efforts by the Amateur

the Old Dominion .Motorcycle Club
win be made to influence the City
Council or ti,. Administrative Bonni.
or both, to allow these organizations
to inclose that portion of Byrd Birk:
which is now given over to athletics.
The plans, which, advanced beyond the
format've stage, are ruther ambitious,
Including a soit track fOr Itorseraclng.
u hard track :<?!? motorcycle racing and
three diamond. : : ti.- amateur ball
So that natrons of the ball games
in., y ii..i be Interfered ?villi In going:
ami coming frbirt l Ho games, walkways

Is hot the intention bf the promoters
ol the ideii to make the park n pti
yate iifluli'. It will be open to all,
and will, if constructed, supply a
an matten now stand there is no
ill., where tin owner ??( n fast horse
can glv< ihe animal his head, nor can
the owner of a motorcycle indulge in
i, burst oi speed witi:..tit endangering
thi ii\.-.- of pedestrians or violating
the speed law, For tho amateur ball
players the new park, or stadium, or,
i.iore properly, perhaps, public play?
grounds, will provide a solution of ono
of the gravest problems the Commis?
sion has hi.d to contend with?inclosed
I.ack of funds, together with a
dearth of suitable locations, have pra
Ventcd homes fur the amateurs from
being built. There is Small satisfaction
in playing a game of baseball on an
Open flidd Discipline; cither among
the players or SpectatOrSi is practical?
ly Impossible linder sUCh conditions.
If permission to build ihe fence and
?tandg can be secured from the city
WOrli will be begun at once, anil fho
athletic ileld will be ready for Occu?
pancy by next spring An ordinance,
Is now being drafted which will be
presented at the proper time. The city
will Incur no expense, as the tWO or?
ganizations will obligat,, themselves
both as to the first cost and for th.->
Upkeep of tl e park.
Sine. It will be a public park, open
lo all. and since it will <ost the city
nothing, on the lace of It, at least.
Hier,, seems little reason for any nb
I. i Hons arising, It will mean much
to the city, but more t.> the youngstera
