Alderman Edgar C. Liljegren, chairman of the city council park committee, said today. While the $106,000 municipal swimming pool, said to be the finest Installation of its type in the United States, represents the largest single addition to facilities for recreation, numerous other improvements are contemplated.

Rock'lsland Youth Hunts Interesting Things to Sketch D if patch Bptcial Service. Rock Island, May 1. Richard Steenburgh, youthful Rock Island artist who resides at 102 Sala apartments and who has been drawing, sketching and modeling ever since he has been old enough to hold a pencil in his hands, has just one ambition sketching and illustrating. He thinks the essentials of cartoon and caricature are finding out standing characteristics of a person and transcribing them on a piece of paper. "You don't have to go far away to find interesting things to sketch," he said. "There's a life's work right in the tri-city' area, and I find a lot of my material in Betten-dorf." Asked what he looks for when he begins a caricature of a person, he replied: "Outstanding facial dif ferences, teeth, the way the hair is combed, the nose and the chin. Take a look at President Roosevelt that chin of his calls attention of the cartoonist, and with Calvin Coolidge, it was his nose." Dispatch Want Ads bring results.
