HBB It has been generally recognized for BHY some time tliat provision for more ex- BHY1- tensive play giounds at the Woodruir HHj school should bo made. Hundicds B; . of children ate now foiccd to First B&H West and First South sticcts in oidcr BBH that they may llnd sulllcient loom for HHg their games. This is a poor play HHf ground and a decidedly dangerous one, HHJ for many of tho children aic too small H&B to escape run-aways that aic liable to HHi chase down these st,i eels at anytime. HBV The board has long understood the H&V need or additional play ground but has HBB never yet found the school llnanccs In HHt such condition that ground could be HH bought.

HBJ A good playground for school childtcn HBJ is an absolute necessity and should HBJ be secured at any reasonable cost. HBJ Salt Lake uald $22,000 for grounds for HBJ this purpose only a few da sago.
