MARYSVILLE, OHIO APRIL 2, 1945 Several instances of petty van dalism in beautiful Legion Park have come to the attention of the Park Board, and parents are ask ed to co-operate with Legionnaires in keeping the park in good con dition by warning their children to refrain from such acts. Among the damage done in re cent days at the Park is the delib erate up-rooting of several young evergreen trees planted last fall, marking up the toilet walls, break ing of light bulbs, and breaking the pump on the west side of the Park. In addition, someone has taken it upon himself to burn the leaves on the east side of the Park, destroying a4lot of grass and wild bloom. L. P. Rausch, Park manage1?, said he replanted more on a high bank just west of the run go ing through the Park, Sunday. The little trees had been pulled up within the past day or two. The pump, again broken, has been fix ed by the Legion at least a half dozer/ times in the past few months, and walls of toilets have had to be painted several times be cause of the repeated writing on the wall.

Legion Park is a Division of Conservation game preserve and the Legion would be perfectly within its right to shoot any dog found on the place: There is no de sire to resort to this, except as a final measure, but persons are warned to take their dogs else where for exercise.- As far as the acts of vandalism an- consented, memliers of the Park Board warn that anyone caught doing damage will be pros ecuted to the full law. If the vandalism the Legion may put up bar the place to general Ideal Recreation Center Legion Park was established in 1925 by Union post as a memorial to veterans of the last war, in an effort to provide something more generally useful than a statue or monument The post has spent thousands of dollars in equipment and maintaining the Park, and Marysville has one of the most ideal receation spots in Ohio as a result. Few towns can boast of anything comparable. Through the past 20 years, the Legion has maintained the Park for the benefit of the entire public. No fees whatsoever have been charged for its use, except slight rental charges it the shelter houses are desired. The Board hopes that it will never become necessary to alter this policy, but if the public at large doesn’t show more appreciation for the Park, something will have to Ire done, it was warned.

BLAINE HARRIS Secretary, Conservation Advisory Council On April 1, 1820 a new founty was established in Ohio. It was formed from parts taken* from Del aware, Madison, Franklin, and Lo gan counties, along with a strip of Indian territory lying directly north of the old Greenville Treaty line. The name “Union” was given to this new political sub-division in recognition of its method of form ation. The area ul Union county is 277,670 acres, of which 271,313 is tillable. The surface of the county is gently rolling and all of the drainage is into the Scioto river, through a network of lesser streams, flowing for the most part in a southeasterly direction. The principal industry is agriculture and the county has 177,8-12 acres of cropland, suited to the growing of turn, wheat, oats, soybeans, al- falfu, and clo.ci u.u. A genci.ll type of farming is carried on, with dairying leading, losely ’allowed by swine i aising and poultry and egg production Earliest Settlement men was probably made tn 1798. The first settlers came from Penn sylvania, Virginie New York, and New Jersey, beings largely Scotch, English, and Irish decent. rl'he earliest .settlement was along Darby creek and the development of the county proceeded northward rather slowly for a number of years. The peak of rural population was reached in 1880 with a total of 18,207 This number had declined to 12,671 in 1940, The greater part of the surface of Union county is either level or gently rolling, with some of the rougher portions lying adjacent to the upper water of Millcreek, a (Lunttiiuva vt t, n in news FIRST IN ADVERTISING RESPONSE .HE MOST WIDELY AND 5HOROUGHIY HEAD NEWSPAPER IN UAIGri COUNIT Price Per Copy, Three Cent Seventh War Loan DHv© Six Weeks Away, But Individual Sales NvW Start Beginning today all “E” Bond purchases count on the 7tn War Loin (junta.

This increase in lie idl funds is even more note worthy when we consider ’he heavy bond buying that has taken place within the same period. It should also be noted that ireasury Bonds from issues put n the market since the .start of he war are selling at a premium. 1 per cent bonds have been quoted recently at 102.8 and the 21-2 per cent issue at 101.12.
