The commission u( II named by
tho Tulsa Athletic association at
It orgnn'zatlon meeting Inst week Is
scheduled to.' tako up the matter
with the nonpartisan water boHrd
Monday afternoon. It seems to tho
writer that the proper course Tor
the water board would bo to turn
the 31-ncro tract In question over
tu thr city park board with tho
r ommendntlon that It ho made
Into an athletic park.
The water board alrady has
turned over 60 acres tu tho vicinity
to nark purpose, a wooded tract
that largo having been cleared of
underbrush and put In iihapc for
ampers. Hundreds of tourist
part.es have taken advantage of
this opportunity, and grentcr num
bers will apprcclato It next sum
mer Work With the Turk Hoard.
The logical thing to do then
,Z to petition the park boaT to J
fall In line with tho plant. Un-
doubtcdly the park board would

would be for tho nthlctlc commls
the property which Is lying Idle, and !
It would bo glad of the advice and
financial assistance of the athletic
commission of 18, It seems very
doulittul, however, j whether tho
park board would consent to turn
this park property over uncondi
tionally to thn newly formed ath
letic association. Tho land 1 valu
able and will bo more so.
Here's tho whole thing In n. nut
hcll: Tho m Mot lo commission Is do

the pork Imnnl can bo IndiUTrl to
turn this proix-rty Into such h
plant and ulll Itself tnke oter tho
Job the whole thine will lw irrcntlr

be behind tlio projift flnnnrliillv

board Is wIIIIiik to make an nth
Hie park out of the slto but linn
not tho money to turn the trick It
could cull on the athletic associa
tion for financial nsslhtaurv.
City Should Keep Control.
Ily all means a municipal athletic
park shoul.i bo one In fact as well
m In name. The city should be the
ono to control. This will nssuro that
the park for nil time will belfrco
to all, If tho park should pass' Into
contut of tho athletic association
everything might bo alright. Thon
SEln It m'ght not. As long as the
present commission of 16 remained
In crrgo everything undoubtedly
would be properly conducted, for

It would bo ii very slmpU mntloi"
for the park hoard to ask this com

Thus the battle In lloston Is likely
to furnish a real challenger for tho
