Through the munificent gift of The Shevlin-Hixdn
Company the people of Bend are to have a park which
will include one of the most beautiful spots in this sec
tion. There will also be preserved for the benefit of the
public another beautiful timbered location and the strip
of timber along The Dalles-California highway through
the company's land which will save it from the desola
tion which has already overtaken the section of the road
nearer town.
The park is to include the Tumalo canyon from the
fish hatchery to the national forest boundary and will' He
dedicated as a memorial to the late Thomas L. Shevlin,
first president of The Shevlin-Hixon Company, famous
Yale athlete, prominent timberman, and friend of Bend
and Central Oregon. In the main its, side boundaries
will be the top of the canyon walls but wherever the
road to Broken Top is not too far from the canyon it
will be included in the park area.-
To make the gift possible the company will be
obliged to secure the title to sections of the canyon floor
now owned by The Bend Company, L. B. Baird, Chas.
Orewiler and A. J. Davidson and negotiations for the
purchase havd already been begun. AH, it is understood,
on learning of the use towhich the property is to beput
have shown a desire to cooperate by placing the lowest
possible price on it.
Beauty Spot Preserved.
All who have visited the canyon recognize it aus
the most beautiful spot there is within easy distanae
from town and will agree that its preservation for tbe
enjoyment of the public is a service of the highest .possi
ble character. In -the flats adjoining the creek!, bn the
lower section of the proposed park grow quantities, (
shrubs, grasses and flowers not found on the afc levels
above. Fir trees are found among the pine and there are
stands of larch, poplar and other deqiduousrees.
Deschutes Valley Timber Spared.
The timber which will be saved from the sweep of the
logger through the Deschutes valley is that lying around
the Ryan ranch, The Tules, and adjoining Dillon falls
Here all the timber will be spared so that to one stand
ing at the falls it will appear as though there were an
unbroken stretchf forest around him.
Now reports which bavo como In

Ited Cross roll call standing Indicate
