With such an auditorium Davenport could secure many large conventions, and it would be splendid advertising for the city. But It was particularly meant to be a center where community spirit, could be developed, and where the people could study and discuss the topics of vital interest. At this time, for example, there should be discussions on the water rate situa tion but there is no place where the people could assemble without Mr.

Petersen contemplated building the Community Center on the corner of First and Main streets, the location of the mnnlcipal swimming pool. The river front committee then had control of the property but it was induced to turn over the property to the city. Then when the Socialist party was in control the swimming pool was built. Now the legical place for such a center is on the river front west of LeClalre park, if it could be placed sufficiently far from the railroad tracks that the noise would not in The writer believes that it is not only the duty but should be the delight of the citizens of Davenport to honor not only the war veterans, but also those who have contributed so greatlv to the city's welfare. As the city owes its beautiful river front largely to the business ability, untiring enterprise and artistic Instinct of the late William D.

Petersen this Community Center should be erected as a memorial to him. this appeal to the sense of justice and fair play of the citi zens of Davenport, altho the carrying out of the plan should be in the bands of the mayor. The various committees should be appointed from the best and most able citizens of the city, and left to no small coterie, organization or group of organizations.

Mrs. Ella G. Bushnell Hamlin urges the need for a Community Center in Davenport. Her letter To the Editor: Several years ago the writer presented the subject, "What Davenport Needs." thru the columns of The Democrat, whose approval it received. It was also presented to L.

J. Dougherty, then mayor of Davenport, and he called a meeting to consider the matter. A committee was appointed, one member of which was Charles Shuler, as I remember, and the committee de cided favorably on the subject, but interfered with In; tm clng of the project. The writer also talked over the plan with the late W. D.

Petersen, the city's friend and benefactor, long before the present park at the river front was completed. The plan was for a great Community Service building. It was to contain a large public hall with a seating capacity of from 5,000 to 7,000, gymnasium, running track. swimming pool, kitchen, small halls for group meetings and where instruction could be given in domestic science and other subjects. The top floor could be used for an art gallery.

(The present art gallery had not then materialized, but as it has already outgrown its Quar ters the plan could still be carried out) The building was to have been available for the use of county as well as city residents a place where the various organizations of the county could feel free to meet where the families of the farm ing community would rest and en joy themselves while on visits in the city. Nominal sums, sufficient to care for the upkeep, could be charged for various balls. It was SATURDAY.
