Stanton Park Citizens Discuss Playground Needs Foremost among topics enlivening discussion at the Stanton Park Citi zens’ Association meeting last night concerned closing of the playground adjoining the Peabody School, Fifth and C streets N.E. Walter F. Linscott, president of the association, said “certain author ities,” among them the Recreational Department, had advised against making any attempt to reopen the grounds during the winter months due to lack of proper supervision, but that an effort was being made to enlarge and more completely equip the grounds adjoining the Stewart Junior High School in the hope that children of the Stanton Park area could use these facilities. No action was taken by the associa tion on the matter. Harry N. Stull reviewed the high school fraternity situation on which the Board of Education has been acting currently, but the association likewise declined to take a stand on this problem. The ruling made by tire Board of Education banning citizens’ groups under 25 in number from meeting in the public school buildings at night was discussed, but no opinion was rendered. Lt. (j. g.) Dorothy Gillam spoke on the SPAR recruiting drive. Esther Conklin, representing the Northeast USO, told of work her group is doing to entertain servcie men and Government girls from out of town.
