while you wait Authorised Skeaffer—Parker Ever sharp—Waterman D. J. HUGHES PEN CO. 503 14th St. N.W. Opposite Willard Hotel Stoddert Pupils Fight Highways To Save Bryantown Playground Children from the Stoddert School last night told the Glover Park Citi zens’ Association of their efforts to save their playground. Both the proposed Arizona Avenue Freeway and the Whitehaven Park way, the students pointed out, would go through the Bryantown Play ground. "If the highways are built, they ; will go through our playgrounds and we will have no place to play ball, said Michael Backenheimer, 11. He said the new roads would create a traffic hazard because of the crowds of children that congregate In that area. He also urged that a tract known as BT. of the Bryantown lot, be set aside as a park. The lot is owned by the National Capital Park and Planning Commission, ac cording to James S. McMullen, association president. “All children have ambition to play ball,” said Alfred Eichner, 11. "If they don’t have a place to play, you can’t keep them out of the streets. So if you don’t want them killed, well—” Ann MacLeod, 11, told the asso ciation the highways would "ruin the nature hikes and picnics” the youngsters now enjoy In Glover Archibald Park. James Scott, 12. and Mary Ann Currier, 11, also talked to the group. The children’s appearance consti tuted the first phase of the project of the Stoddert School’s entry In the Junior Community Improvement Project being sponsored by the Washington Board of Trade. The youngsters also expect to take pic tures of the playground to show the crowds of children who play there. The trade board’s program, which invites all elementary, junior and senior high schools to submit their community problems and solution, will close on June 1. The Glover Park association sent a letter to District officials em phasizing the lack of parks and the effect of the proposed highways on the area. They also asked for a hearing at which both the adults and the children may appear. The meeting, held in the Stoddert School, Thirty-ninth and Calvert streets N.W., was conducted by James 8. McMullen.
