MARCH PARKS IN NORTH IOWA IMPORTANT Provide Much Pleasure fo Public, Conservation Report Shows. North Iowa's state parka, includ mg Clear Lake in Cerro Gordc county, Pilot Knob, in Wtanebago Ambrose A. Call in, Kossuth, For Atkinson in Winneahiek, Eagle Lah '? Hancock and Lost Island in Palo Alto, played an important'part in S«S5i ng "Creation valued at »«37,500 last year. This figure was revealed in the annual report of the board of conservation. Attendance totaled 1,804,251 persons, an increase of 200,000 over 1929. The board estimated the worth of the parks as follows: ., Assuming that each visitor to the state parks spent an hour there, and that the value of this hour of recreation was 25 cents, · persons during: 1930 obtained 5437,500 worth ?* ·"creation from an investment of $loO,000. ' Greatly Exceeds Cost "Thus the cost by taxation for the year was about five cents a person and the monetary returns in recreation from the state parks was three and one-half times as great as the annual appropriation." The report said that in 1923 about 232,000 persons visited the 17 state parks. In 1930 there were 40 parks with more than seven manv visitors as in 1923. " ' "Several of the parks," the board reported, "would be improved if additional lands could be obtained including features and topography belonging naturally to the area. In other parks the present area is fairly adequate, but much greater development would be possible 'if more funds were available. Conveniences Are Needed 'The introduction .of artificial features is _not contemplated but certain conveniences are needed particularly new trails leading to and past natural beauty spots, custodians' homes, shelter houses to be used in inclement weather, improved water supply, adequate sanitation and reforestation. "Because of good roads and the universal use of motor carg, it is no longer necessary to locate regional parks, but desirable to develop for the state a scientific plan for a well balanced system of parks In accordance with the present day practice of business efficiency the hoard of conservation favors a survey of the state to de- SHE'S RECOVERING MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE CONTRACT TO BE LET MARCH 10 St. Boniface Sisters Home and School at Garner to Cost $50,000.
