at the offic F. WITH DAD
Most fun that I ever had , Xow I'm old and wiser grown.
Was (toliV down to w ork with Dad. I With a youngster of my own,
Nothing ever pleased .me so, I And at times that little lad
. when he'd smile an' say, "Let's go Begs to go to work with Dad;
To the office, and maybe
You can do dome things for me."
Then he'd always act as though
I was big and had to go.
Mil the janitor, and he
Showed most everything to me;
Met the president, who said
That hla little boy was dead.
And my father should be glad
Klill to have his little lad.
And he sighed and wiied his eye,
Now I understand Just why.
Likes to occupy a chair
In the downtown office, where
Everything seems strange and new,
And there's such a lot to do.
So I take him now an' then
Down among the busy men.
And the boy that is with me
Brings back one who used to be.
With the bright smile and the glow
In the eyes of long ago.
When I was a little lad
Goin' down to work with Dad.

THE "tity planning commission desires suggestions for im
provements in Pendleton. Here is one : 1
Give much consideration to the subject of ample auto
camp ground accommodations and similar attention to the sub
ject of children's playgrounds.
In each of these fields of endeavor there is a chance to do
much with little. In other worCs big results can be obtained at
To provide good camp grounds will be no burden on the tax
payer. It will be necessary to purchase some additional land
but the land desired is not expensive. It will in itself be a good
investment for the city. To place the land in shape for campers
will call for a comparatively small outlay. The main things
the motor tourist wants is shade, water, toilet accommodations
and lights. If necessary an entrance fee can be charged that
will repay the city for the -cost of these conveniences and for
maintenance of the grounds. The larger the grounds and the
Letter the accommodations the more business there will be.
Progressive towns and cities everywhere are finding it pays
well to look after the motor tourists. They spend money and it
is all new money in a community. Few realize the amount of
money now left here each day by travelling parties and the vol
ume of traffic is certain to increase. If all goes well there will
be a constant stream of cars through this section, during the
year of the 1925 exposition in Portland. We are on a main
transcontinental highway and Pendleton is a natural stopping
place. The surest way to capitalize this traffic is to plan auto
camp grounds on a large scale. No danger of overdoing it. The
danger is that we may look on the subject from a too narrow
viewpoint. It will be a blunder not to regard this subject as
one of the major problems confronting Pendleton.
The subject of children's playgrounds is similar to auto
tamp grounds in that for a small expense much can be accom
plished. Pendleton already has excellent tracts suitable for
playground purposes. It might be desirable to add to the tracts
already owned or controlled by the city but a splendid play
ground program can be carried out with land we already have.
Experts say that the playgrounds should be inclosed and some j fection as the mood seizes them, then.

A worth-while slogan provocative of

to live with," to which we might add
Frobel's illuminating words "Come

"At evening when the lamp it lit
Around the fire my parents siV
They sit at home and talk and sing
And do not play at anything"
sang an only child, our whimsical
Robert Louis Stevenson. It Is com
panionship a child craves, and an op
portunity to establish relations on his
own plane with other children.
Of course a little child dearly love3
the undivided attention of his elders,
to be singled out as an object of at
tention,, the satellite around which
those loving him revolve. He is at the
mercy of those persons who at times
overwhelm him with attention and af
equipment provided. This will call for expense but it will not
be great and the improvements once made will be permanent.
The chief thin? about Dlaysnround work is supervision. This
Bummer work was carried on without cost, by the school or
ganization with volunteer help. We cannot reasonably expect
to escape so cheaply in the future but at the most the cost of
supervision will be light because our school people are paid on a
12 months basis.
To have supervised play in Pendleton as a permanent fea
ture will be an asset greater than a surface view would indicate.
This is an outdoor country, the town is compact and the streets
carry a heavy traffic. We need playgrounds. They will be a
blessing to the children. They promote health, discipline and
contentment Playgrounds are appreciated by mothers as well
as by the little ones. No mother want3 her children to play in
the streets or other. undesirable places. She wants wholesome
play and supervision. So does father. People feel very keen
ly about the conditions their children face. The more hardships
end discomforts the grown up has endured the more anxious is
lie that his children have the benefit of good environment.
To have supervised playgrounds means to make people who
live here more satisfied with the town. It helps prevent families
irom moving away. It will help induce new families to come
here. As a drawing card, good playgrounds will prove second
in importance only to the school system and to good water. It
should be obvious that it is good business for the city to look
rfter this subject and the planning commission has an unusual
epportunity to help the caus ealong. The chief task will be to
work out a plan and secure coordination in carrying out the
Fame. It is more a matter of headwork than of expense, because
the city already has the grounds and it pays its teachers on a
j early basis.
It takes a good sport to be a farmer. He has to take a chance
on nearly everything he does. When he plants a crop, he take?
a chance on the seed being any good, and then it, is a gamble
with the weather. If he gets by with the weather, then it is a
chance whether birds, beasts or bugs eat his crops. It he is
iucky an this score, then it is harvest, and this is all a chance
with the weather, labor and accident. The biggest gamble is
the price of his products after he has raised a crop. A farmer
never knows when he starts in the spring whether he is going to
yd a crop or not and if he does get one he does not know wheth
er he can sell it. If you expect to be ararmer, the first thing
wou must be is a good sport and willing to take a chance. Blue
The people of the various nations are the chief sufferers
when wars ensue; they bear the burden of armament expenses;
they should not be shut out when the disarmament conference
meets in Washington. Open meetings by the conference will
tend to inspire confidence; secret meetings will tend to promote
distrust and misunderstanding.
The band concerts this summer have been highly enjoyable,
though few and far between. It would be a Bplendid thing for
Jhe city to have weekly concerts during the summer time.
