The court is a part of a cham- ber -of commerce project for park improvement, aimed at putting the long-neglected city park back into service, as' a 'recreational facility. The chamber adopted the proj- ect after plans for a swimming pool were abandoned, about two months ago. Actually, the new project is as much a city project as strictly a chamber of commerce ac- tivity, according to R. H. Chadd, -chamber secretary. About 40 contributors had been lined up for the pool. Some cash contributions were oii hand, but most donations were in the form of pledges.. A committee, consisting of L. C.
