And it is a subject which should not only be talked of by officials but by the whole town. The school grounds lic grounds and perhaps the only public grounds our town possesses which, should be an inducement to make it outstanding. Of course we all know the reason these improve- ments have not been made is the lack of sufficient funds. Money is being appropriated al- most daily by the state and also fed- eral governments for public purposes. Just recently a certain sum hag been alloted the county of York under the County Welfare Association for just such work as Delta is greatly in need of. But how are we going to get it? The Delta school board officials are working on this proposition at the present time and any support or I direct information the Delta citizens can give them will be appreciated, we feel sure.
