DO YOU WAST A PARK?
This is a question that has been
handed to us -by the mayor and he de
sires to pass it on to the people of the
community. Do the people really want
a park? That is the question. If they
do they can have it. A year ago, as
we understand it, certain persons met
and in cooperation with the civic association
rented the .plat of land on
xcTiirvh thp noT-lr u'Qc tpmnnroHIv nnpn
ed. Now they have had another meeting
and find that if the people want a
park it will cost something to have one,
and the question is, where is the money
to come from.
Do the people want a park? Bf they
do it is very easy to get one. A little
cooperation and a little pulling together
is all that is needed. IWe understand
that the owner of the land on
which the park has been operated during
the oast year will take about $2 -
000.00 for the land. Mr. Mayor told
us that if $1,200 could be raised the
park could be assur d. Surely the gentlemen
and ladies at the head of the
movement "will not admit that the
small sum of $1,200 could not be raised
in a rwmTrmnitv fnr a
park. I: they do admit it, and It is
true, then the people do n<xt want a
park. Some years ago we had over
three thousand dollars subscribed for a
park, but we needed more than that
at that time, because we wanted to extend
it on to tCalhoun street and the
matter was just dropped, les, ?i,zw,
or even $2,000, can he raised for a parfc
if the proper effort is put forth. The
Herald and News and a certain contri15ra$?r

THE M.iECH DDEBATE THE

The opera house, 011 the occasion of j
these March debates, is usually crowd- j
ed, but last Friday night it was al- j
most a capacity house. On account of:
i the splendid reputation of the speakers 1
as orators and the further fact that!
' subject to 't-e discussed was one:
of supreme national interest just at i
; this time there were many out-of-town '
! visitors. The debate was spirited and j
! (held, the unabated interest oC the au- i
! dience from the start to the finish. The
| young men who delivered orations and
j the young lady essayist and the de-:
| haters deserve much credit for their j
j efforts, reflecting as they did deep
i thought and painstaking preparation.
As usual each society had chosen its
representatives and the eexreises were
i carried out in the following order:
i James Kinard of the Excelsior so|
c-iety presided and presented as the i
j first orator of the evening Mr. IW. J. j
! Proctor of the PhrenaTcosmian society, j
who spoke on the subject, "The ^outh j
of Today." The subject l:*or -debate!
was, "Resolved, That Imigration to the
United States Should he Further Re
j stricted by a Literacy Test." . The affirmative
was opened by the Phrena kosmian,
represented by Mr. C. D
Hipp. The negative was in the hands
of the Excelsior society and Mr. S. D.

tive was Mr. C. E. Ridenhour and the
second negative was iMt. K. R. Krepps.
At the conclusion of the debate the
judges retired to decide the winning
side. Then (followed the essayist for
the Philomathian society, Miss Es'telle
Caldwell, whose subject was, "When
