Many figured the price of admission too high and agreed there should be no gate admission if the grand stand rates continue what they now are. Others figured there should be more free attractions. Doors on the tolleU in the women's rest room were mentioned as a necessity as one feels there is no privacy. Many who can attend the fair only in the evening would like to have the Floral Hall open evenings so they could view the exhibits. Ask Better Lighting A better lighting system wa» deemed necessary for the parking area, as one fell fell over a stump In the dark and injured her ankle. Holes filled up and more graveled walks were also thought advisable. More chairs at the rest room and a place for tired mothers with small sleeping children that have to be held or carried all afternoon wa» the plea of one mother with two small children. Only a few chairs or benches are now provided at the rest room and it seems that these are always occupied and a mother entified with a number or something and th enames could be put on after the judging was over. AdmiMlon Too High? AH agreed the price of admission was too high for them to attend as much as they otherwise would. One member having a large family has not attended the fair for eight years as they cannot afford the admission price and as they can only go one day do not feel they could afford a season Ucket to only use once or twice. The ladies signed a petition last fall to bar hula-hula dancers from the fair grounds . These suggestions by the women of this organization were deemed steps to help put our county fair over in a bigger and better way.
