Committee Will Point
Out All-Community
Status of Plan
Swimming Pool, Also
Tennis Courts are
Well Under Way-
Strennous efforts to insure re
ceipt of additional CWA funds to
enable completion of the public
playground projects at dinger
and Leslie fields are being made
by the Salem Recreational Pro
motion committee, of . which Dr.
B. F. Pound is chairman, it was
announced last night.
The committee, it was said, be
lieves the necessary allotment
will be approved by the state
CWA boat-d if it is understood
that, while the sites of the two
projects are owned by the school
district, both recreational devel
opments will be run on an abso
lutely all-community basis the
year around. Salem has never had
public recreation grounds offering
a variety of healthful, outdoor
amusements to the general pub
lic, it was pointed out.
A survey of both projects yes
terday revealed that much work
remains to be done before they
can be used for the benefit of per
sons of all ages and tastes in re
sard to recreation. The school
board, anxious to further the pro
gram as far as it c,an afford, has
already appropriated a consider
able amount for the work and
.only this week approved an extra
expenditure along that line.
Completion of Two
Swimming Pools Urged
Completion of the two swim
ming pools is pointed" to by the
committee as most imperative.
Around them will center the su
pervised recreational program. It
is estimated that 1000 persons
daily may use each pool in hot
weather. The Olinger pool is to be
45 by 110 and the Leslie pool 50
by 110 feet in size, allowing races
on the metric scale; spoon
shaped, with nine-foot depth for
diving, and 85 linear feet of wa
ter of not over five-foot depth for
swimmers. , Minimum depth is
three, feet. Modern bath houses,
to have concrete floors, are now
under construction.
Concrete can be poured for the
pool walls on both projects as soon
as the labor expense is granted by
the CWA, members of the commit
tee stated. Work on the-pool floor
and surrounding walkways could
follow Immediately thereafter.
The pools will have a ten-foot
concrete platform at the deep end
two and one-half foot walks
around the remainder. Ten-foot
fences will surround the pools 90
that swimmers will, have to enter
through the bathhouses, taking
required showers and foot baths.
Sanitary Conditions
W ill be Guarded
Strictly sanitary conditions will
prevail in the pools, since the
water, taken from Mill creek at
Olinger and probably from a well
at Leslie, will be filtered and
chlorinated. The proposed water
heating system should make near
ly year-around swimming feasible.
The proposed tennis courts at
both fields the first public courts
the city has had also remain to
be completed. Work ended yester
day on four of the six all-concrete
doubles courts planned at Olinger.
Leslie has two courts finished out

May 1 Planned Though
Policy May Change
WASHINGTON, Feb. 15.-vP)-President
Roosevelt late today
signed the bill providing '1950,
000,000 for continuation of the
civil works administration and
maintenance of direct federal re
lief. The last payday for more than
200,000 civil works employes

shape the organization's uncertain
future should it be found neces
sary to retain some of the present
force of 4,000,000 employees be

Coincidentally, the civil works
administrator and his aides were
drafting new rules and regula
tions for the relief unit. These
may set forth the policy already
decided upon that those remain
ing on the payrolls after tonight
are to be dismissed at the rate of
10 per cent a week until demobil
ization is completed.
The president apparently has
adhered to his determination to
liquidate the hastily assembled
employment organization by the
end of April. It has been Indica
ted, however, that thousands may
be retained on the payrolls should
the revival in industry looked for
by the administration not mater

might form the nucleus for the
work insurance advocated by Hop
kins and carefully prepared pro
jects would be chosen for comple
tion. CWA directors admit frank
ly that its primary aim has been
to put men to work and that to
do that any number of projects
were undertaken which had little
economic value.
Hopkins, who also Is federal re
lief director, visualizes work in

levies a tax on both employer and

one-third of the necessary funds.

have been built up. A bounty sys

a fallen comrade that "the blame

Never since the Fascist Heim

has the tension between home

wings of the government come to -such
a critical stage.
