LATE BATHERS PLEASE
CLOSE THE PARK GATE
Editor Courier: '
In conversation last night with the
park uperlntendent, Mr. Martelettl,
he staled that he was having a good
deal of trouble with automobile par
tie that visit the park After 11 p.
m. The park superintendent remains
on duty until that hour, and then
closes the gate across the driveway.
There are always a certain number
of horse and cattle along the coun
ty road and nnless this gate is shut
at night the park would soon be
anything but the clean place that it
is. The complaint of the park su
perintendent is that the late visitors
afcr opening the gate and driving
through the park, fail to close the
gate, often leaving the ate care
lessly thrown aside. Belated tour
ists who use the a'uto camping
grounds are very careful to close the
gate, but It Is our own townspeople
who cause the trouble. It would ap
pear that 11 o'clock was late enough
for anybody to be driving through
the park, snd if a later visit is neces
sary, it would show some considera
tion for the rights of others if these
parties would play fair luid leave
the park ate as they found It."
