long enough to be attached.
Sheriff Richard , also found that
the bees had not been apprised of

SILVERTON, Ore., Sept. 10.
(Special to The ' Statesman.
The city park at Silverton is daily
gaining in popularity as a supper
picnic place The park has ; kl
ways been a large attraction ' at
Silverton but the swimming pool
which was . recently built in the
park has adde4 greatly to1 this
popularity. 'Among the plcnlcers
a large number of Salemites can
now be found and it Is said that
the number of out-of-town plc
nlcers has greatly increased since
the addition of the pool. It is
also reported that ' several, prom
inent Silverton business men who
live not. too far from -the city park
have formed the habit of a .Horn

Record Kept By Miss Snook
Shows Total Playground
Total attendance at the Salem
playgrounds during the 10 weeks
these were keptjopen wasil6.9.66,
recording Jo' figures' complied "by,
MIes Grace Snook, ' supervisor,
givfhg ample proof that the equip
ment and swimming facilities
were greatly enjoyed by the city
y ou ngsjters. In addition 1 to the
equipment, story telling and folk
dances provided . amusement ' and
recreation ; for hundreds ot to(s.'
The . greatest daily 'attendance
was cn August 31, the day ot the
formal closing, when l30pTiSited
the grounds.' Other heavy days
vere July 20, .when - '500, ? were
present, and on July 9, 10,11 and
25, T.ith 450 each. ' ?
Mid-Season ilJest"' .
Attendance -during the first
and - last 'weeks . combined was
less than the lightest day during
the real season; figures show. It
was only yesterday that the equip
ment was stored away for .; the
Beason. All light': stuff, such as
bats, balls, etc., was packed in
barrels and taken to the YMCA,
while the heavier equipment was
stored In the girls' dressing room
at the playgrounds. .
'During the 10 weeks the play
grounds were open after July 2,
the attendance was as follows:
. First week,' 610; second week.
2800; third week, 2000; ; fourth
week,' -2100;! fifth r week; 1800;
sixth week, 2000;. seventh week,

week, -2700 and tenth: week, 475.
General Iraprovemrfnt Planned
Plans are - now under way for
a general Improvement .and .en
largement . of the playgrounds.
Fred Erixon, ; chairman ' of the
committee appointed by the vari
ous organizations sponsoring the
movement, will be asked to go be
fore the city council and school
' . ... IV -'V
' ' f - K r ... '
board to obtain: their, cooperation
in the development enterpriser
Suggestion has been made that
a low place in the playgrounds, a
portion of which is covered with
brush, be tilled up and the brush
cut. By this action, it la said; the'
playgrounds will be increased by
a portion of acreage' about as
large as four or five average city
iota. ; '; .While the property is
chiefly controlled ' by the school
board. Thirteenth street, which Is
vacated through, the playgrounds,
is.' .under' the supervision pt the
city. - .
' Method Tried Out
The same method as was em
ployed about 15 years ago when
an - old ' ditch, traversing the tract
was allied has been suggested the
best; and .cheapest to adopt (or; the'
improvement plan. . The ditch was
tilled by using it as , a . dumping
place, by :the.: city;, care; taken to
burn the light trash,, leaving the
cans , and other solid debris to till
the, hole. ;lVhen:thIs. Was nearly
filled, several wagon loads of dirt
were spread on its 'surface. As
this has proved to be a success, it
will bear repetition,' those making
the suggestion say.
Mechanical Medium Used to
Put Over Nationally Ad
A mechanical window piece in
the window of the Rottle Shoe
store is attracting considerable at
tention on Commercial street.
The device is a part , ot the
Walk-Over "Shoe -company's na
tion wide advertising plan, and is
so constructed -that a small doll,
dressed In the latest evening mode
for men, walks about a display
display column and automatical
ly steps over several pair of shoes
that are placed on the circum
ference of the circle. The action
of the doll is strikingly life like,
and will undoubtedly, place' more
sorely in the minds ot people, the
name of the product which it &-
