Turners to Sell Park.
Concordia park scene of many a
contest of skill and strength among
the Turners of the city will be dis
posed of by the Concordia-Germania
society. The tract which includes
some four acres is on the market and
soon will pass into other hands. The
aim of the Turners in disusing of the
park is to secure a fund with which
to increase t he capacity of Turner hall,
it is believed that much more good
can be gained through devoting the
money which the sale of the park
would realize to building an addition
io occupy the remaining 4o feet of the
frontage that by the occasional use of
the park during the summer months.
Turner hall with limited accommoda
tions is in constant demand today, and
with its enlarged dancing floor, more
meeting rooms and more conveniences
for entertainment and athletic work,
the hall will become a center ami will
afford the society a substantial profit.
The hope is that the addition may be
made this year.
