EL PASO HERALD EDITORIAL and MAGAZINE PAGE A GREAT CENTRAL PARK FOR EL PASO IS NOW AVAILABLE A LABGE central park for El Paso can be acquired bow, but it will not be tone before the advance of tie resi dence districts and the increased property valees win make the price prohibitive. More than 300 acres can be -bought, -nclndrng the point of the mountain and a tHrd of a square mile at its base. The land has been held eat of nse until now, but much of it sunt soon be brought in for residence purposes unless the atv decides to acquire the park. It is several rales nearer the bnsiness district than many popu lous residence districts of the city, and it is sot only within talking distance of the majority of the population bat it can be reached eazuv bv two car Uses. The uneven surface of the land at the base of the moun tain lends itself perfectly to the creation of a park that in Lane would become a place of great beauty. Drives, bread promenades, and trails, level ground for games of all sorts, sites for amusement and refreshment pavilions, sites for wading and swimming pools, outdoor theaters, all the fea tures of a modern recreation park are possible there, groves of trees and flower gardens can be established, and some thing can be provided for everybody from tots in the sand box to tared bnsiness men. As valuable as any part of the proposed park area Is the mountain itself. This is an asset worth millions to the city of the future. Think what it means to have a moun tain 2000 feet Mgh almost in the heart of the city, a mountain easily climbed even now, and from whose peak the view extends 150 miles. It is always breezy up there and the temperature from 10 to 20 degrees below that of the city. The scenic drive sow under construction ascends to an elevation of some 500 feet above the city, and will have an easy automobile grade. At no great expense this drive can be extended to the top of the mountain and along the crest of the ridge. Short cats can be constructed for foot trails or burro trails. Rabble dams across the canyons and arroyos would catch the water and soil and seeds, and with some help from us, nature would soon create little parks acre ana mere ana eveiywsere. & water supply sQiiiaeuL for ordinary purposes can be furnished at no great cost, There are infinite possibilities for the future devetop mert of such a tract of land as ft is proposed to buy at this time. It would be a wise investment for the city to make, even if nothing should bo spent on the park for years to come. The location is perfect. The topography is ideally suited to the proposed use. If this opportunity should be allowed to pass, we could never hope for another so favor&ble. The question of what it will cost to develop the park 'horoughly really dees not seed to be considered at this time. The amount that can be spent is unlimited, bet the amount that seeds to be spent in the near future to make the cerk available to the people's use and pleasure is not beyond El Paso's means. A few hundred thousand dollars distributed over a peaod of tea years will not unauiy our- den this city. Kansas (Sty has spent $20,000,000 on parks and boulevards and gees en spending gladly and wisely. with the popular demand lnsatiaHe for more parks ana more boulevards all the time. The purchase of the proposed central park, and the buflding of the road to the top of Meant Franklin these are the next big things before EI Paso along the lis: of intensive development for the general welfare, o As Hoover's qualifications for the presidency grow mere apparent, his chances for getting nominated grow slimmer. -o- A Public Defender. SIX TEAKS ago Los Angeles county, California, created the office of public defender. At first the idea was regarded skeptically by lawyers and the public, but the plan has worked well. The California plan js based on recognition of the fact that an accused person, unable to employ counsel for himself, is entitled to the services of a lawyer just as capable as the attorney who represents the state. So, instead of the old system, under which the court names some young and inexperienced lawyer or hack to represent a defendant, a regularly elected public attorney appears in behalf of accused persons who have not the means to engage counsel. Under this plan there has been no miscarriage of justice. It is sot intended that the public defender shall try to ob tain the acquittal of guilty persons, any more than that the prosecutor shall endeavor to convict the innocent. In Los Angeles the prosecutor and defender have worked to gether in the interest of justice, the former making it his special duty to see that the guilty are punished, the latter seeing to it that all accused persons are given whatever protection, in the conduct of their cases, the law provides. Ho honest prosecutor wishes to convict an innocent per son, but without a proper defence he is not always able to learn an of the facts in support of the accused. Under the Los Angeles plan it has been found possible to ascertain the facts in criminal cases more accurately than under the old system. One of the results has been the elimination or the low crime. There also have been fewer jury trials in proportion to the number of criminal cases, due, it is believed, to pleas of guilty by persons of whose guilt the public defender was satisfied. While the chief purpose of the Los Angeles plan is the protection of indigent persons, it has worked to the advan tage of the state and fewer crimes have gone unpunished than under the old system. In El Paso, where there has been complaint over repeated f ailnres to punish malefactors, the Los Angeles plan might be toed to advantage.

After the enumerators finished their work in 1 Paso many persons reported that they had been missed. The national Cml service Kelonn league uses the com plaints against the government's census takers to justify the demand it made in 1918 for the elimination of that section of the census bill which exempted from the pro visions of the civil service law the 400 census supervisors and 85,000 enumerators. Congress brushed aside the demand. In asking that the censes bureau be included In the civil service) this organization showed that the censuses of 1900 and 1910 were costly and inaccurate and dted the case of Maryland in 1900, when, in order to gain another repre sentative in congress, enumerators took names from tomb stones and graveyards. Democrats charged this was done to increase RepabHean representation in congress. This year, with Democrats in power, similar charges may be expected. o So far Florida has no favorite son. o SSencs is deep as Etermin, speech is shallop as Time. Thomas Carlyls.
