Will Close Next Friday
Friday, Ang.: 31, is the closing
day for the municipal playground,
and an elaborate . program has
been arranged covering the full
time from 10:30 until 6 in the
evening. i '
There will le games and con
tests and a host of specialized
sports all through the day except
during the noon hour, when all
the, parents and friends of the
children are urged'to come with
their dinner baskets and have a
picnic dinner on the grounds. .
The program of sports recom
mences at 1:30. with a grand par
ade in any kind of costume that
any of the children wish to pre
sent. ,. Mother's wedding gown,
dolly's perambulator. Uncle John's
buckskin Indian suit, everything
that will be. different, wUl be
presented. The games, swimming,
diving, and all the others, start
again at 2:30' and last until the
whole program is run off.
: According to the t very cIobs
dally check of attendance during
the whole season, the eighC weeks
will have a total of more than
15,000 who 'passed through the
gates of the playground. The
total cost has been about 150ft,
or about 3. 1-3, cents per child per
day for . safe and supervised play.
That would be a little more than
a dollar a piece for each child for
the whole season. The record is
said to be very remarkable in Its
showing of per capita service.
In 1824. an English mason wanted to
produce a better cement than any then in
' use. To do this he burned finely ground
clay and limestone together: at a high
heat. The hard .balls called duiker that
resulted were ground to a fine powder.
; When a mixture of this dull gray powder
with water Jxad hardened, it was the color
of a popular building stone quarried on
the Isle of Portland off the coast of Eng
land. So this mason, Joseph I Aspdin,
called his disooveryMparrJandwcemenL
That was less than one hundred years

Portland cement was not made in the
United States until fifty years ago. The
average annual production for the ten
years following was only 36,000 sacks.
Last y ear the country used over 470,000,
1 000 sacks of Portland cement. Capacity
to manufacture' was nearly 600,000,000
' E2cks. I
Cement cannot be made everywhere
because raw materials of the necessary
- chemical composition are not found in
suSdent quantities in every part of the
country. But it is now manufactured in
27 states by 120 plants. There is at least
one of these plants-within shipping dis-"
tance of any community in this country.
provide a cement supply tlut would
always be ample to meet demand has
meant a good deal in costly experience
to these who have invested in the cement
, . industry. There have been large capital
investments with low returns.
Ia the last twenty-five years, 328 ce
ment plants have been built or have gone
: through some stage of construction or
financing. 162 were completed and placed
in operation. ......
Only 120 of these plants have survived the
tAnaTurial, operating and marketing risks of that
period. Their capacity is nearly 3 per cent
pxatar than the record year'i deaaad.
