A novel contest is on between
tho two companies of the W. II.

was suggested by Mrs. Donald

society take up the plan. Cap
tains were appointed by the
president, Mrs. Olson. Captain
of No. No. 1 being Mrs. Donald
Patton nnd of Co. No. 2, Mrs. II.
O. Brown. Tho contest is on
until tho first of April, when the
losing side gives the winners

testants. No definite further action has
yet been taken on tho public park
proposition, but the latest move
being advocated is to call a
special election, the ballot to con
tain a list of prolfered tracts,
classified under the headings of
"Park Sites" and "Plazas' tho
voter being given tho privilege
of voting for one of each only.
The ballot also to authorize a
bond issue in sum great enough
to cover tho cost of tho highest
priced park site and also the
highest priced plnzn, to bo re
duced if cheaper priced property
bo selected by tho voters. Pro
vision will nlso undoubtedly bo
mado for money sufficient to place
tho two tracts in proper con
dition to serve tho purposes for
which they aro to bo secured.
