SHERIFFS AFTER TEN MEN INDICTED BY THE GRAND JURY TACOMA KIDS STRONG FOR PLAY GROUNDS AND MORE PARKS "Do we git a playground In Franklin park?" He was a little bit of a tike sitting on the front seat out at the Twelfth Ay. Improvement club meeting Wednesday night when Miss Mayer was trying to explain what the park board wanted to do with that J500.000. His freckled face was lighted up by a pair of eyes that sparkled. He had heard all about Roosevelt Heights, Wapato lake, McKinley park, Franklin lake and the rest, but was not satis »<ied. "Do we git a playground in Franklin park?" he finally put in. Miss Mayer told him that was the intention. "O, gee! I'm fer the bonds then. I'll vote fer "em." After that he paid strict attention and was in ecstasy all evening. BOYS &€ MKKTINGS It is rather unusual, and so much so as to be noticeable that At the meetings when the playground question is up there are always a lot of boys. "Nearly half /he audience was made up of children the other night at a meeting," said Miss Mayer today. w The fact of the matter is the children of Tacoma are for the play grounds. They are for those bonds. The voters may discuss the bond limit, interest charges. New York Savings bank approval and all the other things, but they do not appeal to the young heart that yearns for a place to play ball, and shoot marbles and wield a tennis racket—or maybe just dig in the sand. THEY UNOKItSTANW IT I And somehow these Tacoma youngsters have gotten the play ground idea into their heads and they know if that half million bond deal goes they get the playgrounds and if it does not then they do not get them. A group of youngsters was seurrtng westward near Sprague st. — last evening bat in hand and ball flying back and forth. They found a. vacant corner grown up with weed with grass a foot high. Four jagged rocks were rustled for baseg, and the game was on. It seemed like a representativecrowd, so the Times man decided to sound It on playgrounds. "How do you boys vote on the park bonds?" the Times man •Rkcl the catcher. "Wot'e them? Hey there. Skinny, put er over now; lets get this kid out." ' "The park bonds are to buy playgrounds for the boys—do you boys think you'd like a playground?" "You mean a place where we kin play and not get chased? "That's the idea; nice level ball field all your own, to play on all the time, with swings and trapeze in the corner." CUOWI) GATHEKED ABOUT "Huh!" the star catcher of this nine-year-old ball squad shrugged his shoulders. By this time all the field had come in to see what the etranger wanted, evidently expecting Ue was the owner of the lot come to "chase" them. . "Well, let's see now. All you boys who want playgrounds say Rye." "Aye!" howled every mother's son of them. "Al who don't want any say No." • "Aw wot's the matter, nobody's going to say that. * And nobody did. That bunch was unanimous for playgrounds. The Times man started to go. ,_-,.,_ ""Well, do we git 'em?" chirped a little tad who thought that as they had voted it ought to be settled. The Times man could not tell. ARE STILL WONDERING He left them still standing there wondering whether they were going to get that playground. When he was three blocks away he looked back. They were still standing there wondering. BID HE MURDER TWO WOMEN (By United Press Leased Wire.)
