During tbe past week the city author

entire city. To say that it will be in
valuable to tbe people of Lente is hard
ly putting it forcibly enough.
And it is due to tbe women of Lents,
that this institution is to be supported
by the city and at this location. Over
a year ago tbe Parent-Teacher club
took this up, got special committees ap
pointed to wait on the county court
with tbe view of getting the use of the
ground for play purpose«. This tbe
Courts readily conceded, and in addi
tion it spent a considerable sum in
making improvements and patting it
into shape for use. Several neigbor-
bood gatherings went over tbe grounds
and collected rocks, tin cans and other
rubbish and assisted to smooth it down
to it would be possible to use it.
But tbe real work came wiib the
work of raising funds to furnish a num
ber of playthings, swings, slides, etc.
A “tag day" was held and tags by tbe
thousand were sold at ten cents each.
A very nice little sum was raised in this
way. A committee of women, includ
ing Mrs. O. E. Lent and Mrs. Otto
Katsky, made special collections of
money, apparatus, grace seed, lumoer,
and other essentials which were very

necessary for tbe maintamence of a

Hollingwortb was engaged to take care
of the grounds and to guard them dur
ing play hours. It may appear to one
at this distance that thia was all easy,
but if you could hear tbe women who
raised tbe money tell the stories of the
various receptions they received, you
would conclude that the experience was
anything but pleasant. But they per
sisted to the end, and with tbe co-oper
ation of the various churchee of the
town, tbe W. C. T V., and a number
of faithful parents, it was carried
through tbe summer.
During the winter, after the town of
Lenta was voted into the city of Port
land, a committee of tbe Parent-Teach
er club took up tbe ma ter of tbe deed
ing of tbe six acre plat to tbe city by
the county as a permanent park and
playground. The commissioners
thought they should have legislative
authority for tbie, so a bill was pre
pared by Diet. Atty. Evans and put up
to tbe Legislature.
In this work Mr. Tobin, Dr. More
land, Rev. W. B. Moore, Father Beut-
gen, Mrs. Katzky, Mrs. Boddy, and
Mrs. O. E. Lent, were active and aa a
result the bill was passed aDd duly

tbe city to accept it. This baa finally
been accomplished and there ie every
