Through the operation of a carefully
worked out plan Mr. Daniels believes
that not only can the national reserva­
tions eventually become self support­

be enhanced rather than destroyed by
the placing of "beauty ou a business

superintendent contemplates the estab­
lishment of a "model village" In each
o f the large parks or In so many of
them as tbe patronage will Justify. In
discussing his plan Mr. Daniels said:
“ There Is no doubt In my mind but
that the national parks should be
placed on a self supporting basis. Tbe
people will In time refuse to support
the parks, and we should therefore
take advantage o f tbe revenue produc­
