The property also contains seven of the ten large dunes, or so-called moun tains, of the proposed National Dunes Park. Tlirse dunes are from 140 feet to IKE feet high aDd for most part are covered with the large pine and oak trees. There are over five miles of well marked wagon trails on the prop erty and at five or ir. different places )vu can now drive an auto mobile on these utiirni roTed trails to within 1000 feet of the beach. A beautifully wooded bluff about thirty feet high runs parallel with the shore line back about 160 feet from the waters edge. It is pro posed to offer this bluff and the attractive locations along the trails for summer homes. About 500 acres, including the beach and larce dunes, will be set aside as Parks and preserved in their natural state. The remaining 300 acres will be subdivided but closely restricted and limited to 600 half acre lots. Streets will be paved, rewers built and electric light and water tystcmf installed the coming spring Provisions are also belnf? m.aue for a club house, golf course and harbor for sinill power boats.

"Here's a rod hot ember straight from Fire Chief Watson, of the District of Columbia who vouches for the truth of the story but discreetly withholds the identity of those concerned.

Unless prompt action is taken to secure the remaining property for a State or National raxk, or for pre serving it as a combination park and subdivision, as at Dune Acres, it too may be used for industrial purposes. 5Ir, Teman has been considering offers to sell his property for indus trial purposes. While tt may b un fortunate that this beautiful tract cannot be secure? for the National Park, it is some consolation to know that the Dunes will be pre served in their natural state. Also, from present prospacts, there la re maininr all of the !un region that It will be possible to secure for a National Park, It is evident, however, that urdess tho Indiana legislature acts during the coming fxten that it will be too late 1o secure any of this shore of Pake Michigan in Indians for a park Many people are familiar with the development north of Michigan City durnr tb past our years.
