A few of thine centered in i tlie more critical [orations may b.- i a boon to the rnotoriat. Did you ! ever bear of a serious accident caused by the piling and cars me«- fnjf ? Did yen *ver hear of the fJesta, the drunken dMver arid the speeder, hitting these posts?. No matter how reckless the driver, he or she always seems to miss this hazard. It's vtt>rth a thought. Remember the «M holes? The ice house, Bteckford's and Call's. Men arid boys gathered by the dozens for the fun. Nudism was the style and Sunday the big day. Women didn't have a chance for a swim. Now things are different. Why not plan for bigger patronage at the municipal pool. Kids have an allotted free hour. Mixed sexes constitute all other Wme. Give the shy man, and there are many, a day or so a week alone. Let the timid ladies have their secret swimming afternoon. Many folks want this prlvielge but care not to parade In a bathing suit before the opposite sex. Let someone work out a plan along this line. A trial hurts no one or the city's purse extensively. If thn men and women do not respond in numbers for a financial success It could easily be turned back to the present style. Mrs. Irvin Chapman Heads Presbyterian W. M.
