Before opening last spring,, the remains of the old high-slide were removed for safety seasons, diving boards were inspected and two new ones were put in use. The pool was lined for racing meets before it was filled with water. This fall, it was necessary to replace 23 window panes broken out by vandals and the entire interior of the bath house was painted. We should like to paint the pool and the baby pool before next season. Scout Cabin:    Exterior painted two coats, gutters cleaned and painted, all windows and doors repaired and new screens set in. Park Residence: All trim and windows painted, gutters cleaned and painted. Tennis Courts: cleaned off and new nets purchased, but too late for much play.

Most of it was ready by the time it was ac-‘ a 11 y nee (led a nd Ihe park expe r-ienced a most successful season, at least measured by the number of people who used it. In times past, the park has bevil placed in the class of a luxury, or at least something the City does not have to have. Like an automobile, we could get along without it, but again like an automobile,: a lot of people use it. This fall, all furnaces were repaired, though four have since been maliciously torn down and will have to be rebuilt. I still never cease to wonder at citizens who will allow children to destroy their own property. Majority of tables have been repaired (broken and decayed portions replaced) and painted. All markers and signs have been repainted. Fourteen dead elm trees have been cut and sawed up for use in the cabin. The purchase of the tractor and new mowers enabled the park personnel to keep the mowing and trimming under fair control during the season. Swimming Pool: After a successful season,* the equipment is inLong, Dry Year In Indiana for Recorded 1953Solons to Vote Selves Pay Raise; Proposed Sum Cut County Shares Highway Funds265 Missionaries Captive of Chinese WASHINGTON (INS)— Congress appeared prepared today to vote itself a pay ra se but probably not as much as recommended by a special salary study group. A salary commission suggested $27,500 a year for legislators instead of the present $12,500 and $2,500 expenses. Opposition in the House was weak, and M a j o rity Leader Charles Halleck (R) Ind., flatly predicted : a raise will be approved “by an overwhelming majority of Democrats and Republicans. ' Rep. Usher L. Burdick (R) N.D., a staunch opponent of salary boosts, said he will not attempt to block the measure within the Judiciary committee if these conditions are met: 1. Members allow themselves to go on record as for or against the raise. Procedure leaves room for them to vote the boost without being counted. 2. The raise go into effect next year after all present members have faced their constituents at election time. 3. The same percentage increase be made in public assistance payments to the blind,, disabled and destitute. Little formal opposition is expected in the Senate where the measure setting up the commission was sponsored by Sen. Everett Dirksen (R) 111.
