By formal resolutioa, it was declared the sense of the board that the park and
bathing pools ought to be provided; and a committee was appointed to take up
the matter with the' city authorities, and with the engineers of the reclamation'
service, in order to devise, if possible, a practical plan for carrying est the park

Girls the Better Farmers
SEVEHTY-FIVE THOUSAND boys are enroled in the government's "corn
dubs" this year. The "corn dabs" are sraaH local organizations of boys in
hundreds of localities throughout the union, the members of which under-
take competition in corn raising under
awarding prices are quantity, quality,
sends demonstrators around, who teach
pare the ground, how to cultivate, and how to use the crop to best advantage.
Hundreds of boys have sent ia records of raising over 100 bushels of corn to the
acre, and the highest records run to almost fabulous figures.
Through the work and interest of the boys, the elders became interested, and
pictures of "corn demonstration day" in various towns and Tillages show tables
and booths a block or two long, crowded about with men and women eager to
learn more about this splendid practical work of education, that nwaas greater;
prosperity to the farmer, and ultimately perhaps a cheaper Irving far the tows
The work of the government with "corn dubs" among beys is effectually sup
plemented by the girls' "farm dubs." The gkia were started out in tomato raising
and canning, and the southern states were chosen for the field of initial opera
tions. But so strongly did the idea appeal to the girls that they did net stop with
the program mapped out, but in the two years of dub work under govenuneat
supervision they have branched out into many other lines, inctediag poultry ad
eggs, and every kind of fruit and vegetable, until the girls' dubs ia Oklahoma this
year have canned 90 varieties, more than half as many again as the "57" pickle
factory. ' -.
Government agents of the agricultural department, who have directed this
work, assert that "Girls have more sense than boys," and they cannot see the end
of the work that has boom undertaken among them. The, girls prove not only
more enthusiastic students, but more faithful workers, and they seem to have a
keener sense of the value of time, money, and superior eseeHeuce of product. One
girl ia Oklahoma sotted $101 from a. lot 40x100 feet, or about 1-10th yacre. Hhe
dreds of others have done almost as welL Over 25,000 girls are enroled in the
southern farm dubs, and the number can be indefinitely increased whenever the
government sees fit to appropriate sere, money for the educative week and or
Business men estimate the value, this year, of the Oklahoma girls' clubs to the
state, in increased agricultural production and stimulation, at sot less than
$1,000000. The number of cans of fruit and vegetables actual y "put up" by the
girls ia the dubs, and by others as a resuHof their efforts and influence, is esti
mated at 15,00a000.
The canning works have been an object lesson to grown people. One man. near
Oklahoma City had a large orchard off winch he eould sot sell the fruit at a profit,
and he was about to abandoB the enterprise whea he happened to attend one of
the girls' canning demonstrations. He was) impressed that he invested $150 in a
home canning outfit and caaaed all the fruit oa his place. He deaoed up $5000 en

Many of the girls have gone in for poultry raising as well as for canning, and
att have made a good showing financially with eggs aad chickens. CBbey have saved
