NAME THAT PARK COMMISSION
Streets m dinerent cities o:
the world are famed tar and
wide for their beauty. Three
things contribute to this favor
able reputation the wondrous
charm of the foliage, the width
of these streets, as a rule, and
Euclid avenue. Cleveland, is
noted because of the continuity
and uniform size and shape of
the Elm trees that grace that
street its entire length. Euclid
avenue is one of the most beau
tiful streets in America, the
pride not only of, Cleveland but
of the entire state of Ohio and
it is that only because a park
commission caused that street to
be set with Elm trees several
years ago, and then saw that
every tree received the attention
that was necessary to make it
grow into a glorious specimen of
The beauty of other famous
streets of America and the old
World is necessarily attributed
to the fact that the decoration
has been carried out along
Well-conceived plan in which the
property owners concurred.
Corvallis can have a Euclid
avenue, or its citizens can in
time walk "Unter den Linden
A well-conceived plan carried
out at this time just as Corvallis
is merging from a village into
pleasant city of the smaller class,
Would make. Corvallis . a city
beautiful in a few years.
It's worth the while to try.
Let's have a park commission
