Forms Important Part of WPA Work in the, Fifth District Construction and improvement of recreational areas and community and state parks form an important phase of W PA work in the Fifth District and so great has been the demand and public endorsement :or such projects that it has not been possible to carry out all of 'he proposals to date. Such jrojects are second only to farm-to-mjarket 'road improvements in their demand and approval in the various communities comprising the district, and, like road improvements, they answer a long felt need which could be accomplished only through federal aid such as provided by WPA. 'State,park improvement projects in operation by the Fifth District WPA include those at Lake Manawa near Council Bluffs, Onawa and Bedford and entail estimated expenditure of $204,162. A fourth project endorsed and advocated by the Iowa Conservation Commission and residents of southwestern Iowa would provide improvement of Cold Springs state park south of Lewis, in Case county. A 60-acre tract has been purchased through public subscription for a state park area, but definite plans for its development have not been submitted by the Iowa' Conservation Commission. Tentative plans call for a large lake which would be stocked with fish, state game preserve and recreational features ; and .an additional tract may be purchased for use as a state .park. In addition to the above state park improvement projects, WP A is operating community park tic, Lenox, Red Oak and Villis- construction projects 'in Atlan- a. These park improvements will cost between $160,000 and $196,000. Conservation Commission, the commission pledging no financial aid, although to date it has contributed $400 towards the expense of the improvements. WPA allotted $18,270 to the project and to date, $14,500 has been spent. The monthly payroll on this job is $2,800. At Lewis and Clark state park on the banks of the Missouri river four miles west of Onawa, in Monona county, construction of roads and trails and a public lodge is in progress, WPA furnishing $22,808 and the State Conservation Commission supplying $1,084 for these improvements. The rustic lodge, built of native materials, will have a dining room, great hall, dressing rooms, closets, lavatories, kitchen and quarters for the park custodian. This building w<iU be 85 feet long and 51 feet wide and will be completed about the fifteenth of September, 55 men being employed at present on the project. In this park is located Blue Lake and under an FERA project a 200,000 gallon well was drilled to a depth of 110 feet to supply water for the lake. War Veteran, Formerly of Lenox, Dead Ira Baldwin, Buried in Arlington Cemetery with Honors Ira Boyton Baldwin, an officer at the U. S. Northeastern penitentiary, located at Lewisburg, Pa., and a former Lenox resident, died at his home at Lewisburg, April 23, following a heart attack. He had recently returned from a vacation and was apparently in good health. Mr. Baldwin served in France during the war and was badly gassed, which caused a heart condition to develop.

One vehicular bridge and a foot-bridge are being constructed and the dam raised two feet to provide an additional water supply, the existing lake serving as the source of the Lenox city water supply. Forty men are employed on the project, which will be completed about Oct. 1. Bedford Lake At the state park four and one-half miles northeast of Bedford, an earthern dam impounding a 126-acre lake is being constructed and a recreational area provided in the 365- acre tract. When completed the lake will have a maximum depth of 16 feet and will furnish the town of Bedford with an auxiliary water supply. Later a state fish hatchery is to be located there. The lake bed is being cleared, a concrete intake tower and water supply appurtenances constructed, the face of the dam riprapped and a 550-foot reinforced concrete spillway built, the park area graded, roads and trails constructed and miscellaneous other work is being done in the improvement of the park. In building the dam, 128,000 cubic yards of earth was moved with the use of elevator graders, a dragline and tractor wagons. Seventy men are working at present on the • project, which will be completed about the first of September. The project was sponsored by the State bly interwoven with, it< Let's see, Where's the othey .arm. That's funny, I thought I had two arms.

' •*.':"••': Reclammation of Lake Manawa, located three miles south of Council Bluffs, is one of the major, projects being accomplished by WPA, which is furnishing funds for this work in the amount of $102,000 and the sponsor, the Iowa Conservation Commission, is contributing $60,000. Lake Manawa formerly covered approximately 700 acres, -fi'iiti 'the* lake was permitted to become filled with silt and eventually dried up entirely. By building 9,000 lineal feet of levees and dredging the lake of 1,500,000 .cubic yards of silt, WPA is reclaiming 200 acres of the original lake. This earth is being used in construction of levees and two miles of roadway around the lake and when completed, Lake Manawa will be stocked with fish. Levees are being riprapped and matted, a regulation gate is being built, the area fenced, two pervious spillways constructed, a boat and bath house erected and the area fenced. A sand beach is also to be built around the lake. In the park area will be included a 500-acre waterfowl refuge. Completion of this work will require about one year. At present 125 men are employed on the project. • • At Villisca, a swimming pool, bath house, athletic field, two tennis courts and other recreational facilities are being provided through a WPA proect sponsored by the Villisca park commission, the sponsors contributing $6,240 and WPA $29,560.98. The park, a 10-acre tract located a half mile east of Villisca, is to be landscaped and the £00! and athletic field lighted. The pool will be 65'xllO' in dimensions, with a purification and alteration system and the bath house will provide sanitary accomodations for bathers. The athletic field will include a cinder track with concrete curb, football field and kittenball diamond. Thirty men, working in two shifts, are employed at the park. Completion of the project is set for about Sept. 1. A general park improvement project sponsored by the city park commission is in progress at Red Oak and calls for the installation of - ; a, purification and alteration system in the present swimming pool, erection of baseball and football field bleachers, ponstruction of three tennis cojwtfc. roads and parking areas, an ojfivamental stone entrance andLf.epeing of the tract. The pool::!; purification sysjbem will permit a complete change of water eve^ eight hours. ape working which .the contribted was the son of Omer and Cora Baldwin.

Work on completed the late project in the on the spjet, to park cQjnml$ston Shortage of WPA labor due to the amount of PWA, state highway and private construction work in Cass county, together with extensive WPA farm-to-market road improvements being made there, has delayed the start of the Sunnyside park project in Atlantic, for which a federal allottment of $65,000 has been approved and $7,000 contributed by the sponsors, the Atlantic park commission. The park, a tract of ten and one-half acres located at the southwest outskirts of the city, is a place of natural beauty, with an athletic field located below the cliffs and the swimming pool, playgrounds and picnic and camping grounds to the south of the bluffs. " Plans call for landscaping the park, construction of a 287,430- gallon pool, sand beaches, wading pool, rustic enclosure and bath house west of the present athletic field; tennis courts, athletic field, roads and footpaths and construction of (an ampitheatre around the site of the present pool, a portion of which -will form a basement dressing room. The ampithea- tre will be used during the summer for band concerts and dramatic productions, meetings and the like.

The present system of income and sales tax distribution permits corporations and non-residents to share as though they contributed ratably with the residents of the state instead of limiting the distribution as rebates or funds on property to the residents alone. "We are at the same time giving to the non^ijesident a bonus thus extractedi>>from the resident. In oth£p;, words, we are making Iowa a good state to live out of and own/property in instead of a good, state in which to live and own property.

VOGEL & WOOD SALE WILL COME TO END SOON The Vogel & Wood closing out sale will be coming to an end before long, said Mr. Wood yesterday. "We have emptied all the boxes and everything we have is on display in our store room," he said. "You are right about that," said Hans ^bgard, the handsome Dane who is managing the sale, "I've searched this building from one end to the other for something more to sell but it's all on the counters and shelves. And tell the folks they'd better come and get it quick because this Is real, quality merchandise and it is going fast." The Time Table printed another order of bills for the Vogel & Wood store this week and they are now in the hands of the public. New price reductions have been made because it is Mr. Wood's intention to absolutely close out the stock. He or for any other purpose contributing to the welfare of young people of the community having the approval of those in whose hands the funds were placed. This committee endorsed the park project by contributing $7,000 as the sponsor's share, this being the first donation made from the fund since it was established more than thirty years ago. by paying the taxes upon the land," stated Mr. Grimes. As to the proposed distribution for August of;, this year, Mr. Grimes said, ''This coming nine million dollar distribution will be nearly three times that of the fall of 1934. Thus the railroads and utilities which received checks ranging from one to four thousand from separate counties in the fall of 1934, will receive practically three times as much or from three to twelve thousand each from each of the counties and that the owners of the Keokuk Dam will receive nearly three times the amount of the $4800.00 check of 1934, or about $14,000.00. There should of course, be sdme way to stop this great leak. The Homestead Relief bill will do it," concluded Mr. Grimes. is quitting the mercantile business.
