Independent, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1957, Pasadena, CaliforniaA Forth s diary a Park by any other name Bill sum nth now that the supervisors have reversed themselves on the matter of the naming of the Venice Small boat it the Marina Del Rey after a week As Burton Chace us Hope that they end forever the practice of naming lakes Parks and other Public places after themselves. We have a Lake at Whittier Narrows and a Ford Park in Bell gardens. Children in Pacoima play in Jessup Park. There May be others but you can research things to death and you get the Point. Chace is to be commended for ending the farce in his own behalf and he remains so far As i can learn the Complete innocent biggest Gas line goes to work victim. _ a person should be dead and buried before his name is inscribed on a Public Monument. Possibly the time limit postmortem could be set at a year but it would be safer to wait 50. By that time the Eye rolling orator s giving testimony to a Man s greatness and kindness to women and children could bawl pious dedications with out fear of dissent. With the passing of time and a state of Advance de composition the most thieving of political mount Bank can become honoured patriarchs fit both Pul pit and editorial Page whenever american Virtues Are brought to mind. At a higher level there Are changes in Politica Power which can affect this sort of thing. We Havi Hoover dam. First it was Hoover dam. Under Roosevel it became Boulder dam. Now it is Hoover dam Chace was embarrassed it is confusing. A person can get into a fist fight by calling it by one name or the other. And the rumpus stirred up by Thi significant political in its time was As hot As the current Battle Over civil have been a source o constant embarrassment to poor Hoover. Chace was embarrassed too. He was in another Supei visor s office having his picture taken when the subject of re naming the Marina came up. Three supervisors were presen to Ford and Legg. The vote was unanimous. When Chace returned to the mooting he was informed that his name was to Grace a Small boat Harbor. He was of course delighted but when an afternoon paper was dropped on his desk he Learned that supervisor Halm was Oil a crusade. Bur Ion Chace was the Gist of the Halm at tack and the newspaper agreed. Chace was delighted no longer and led a counter Campaign to rename the Marina. This leaves us again with three supervisors for which nothing has been Dorn and Chace. They should form a voting bloc and Rule the county. They could at least be together on such matters As Ford and Jessup Parks and Legg Lake. Why should a tax supported Lake be called Herbert c. Legg Lake in the first place if i were Given a Small body of water and ordered to name it Legg s is the last name that would occur. I might toy with the idea of naming it Russell Alber Leadabrand Lake but this would be for the purpose of pro Viding an office joke. We d All kid Russ about it and Call it a Lousy Lake. You know that kind of stuff. It s us tax. List but seriously if they insist on naming lakes and Parks after living persons Why Don t they get the names out of the tax list Call a Lake Smili Lake and you will have pleased Smiths in los Angeles county. Or receive Nomina tons in behalf of citizens. I would nominate c. L. Skelley for one. He is a faithful letter writer to. Our says you column takes Strong stands and is fearless. Morris sey would have been another but he left town during my vacation and Wil have to get his own Lake in some other town. He left no for warding address with us. I have a communication from Geraldine Duncan of Pasa Dena in regard to her son s termites. If the class has been paying attention it will recall that mrs. Duncan wrote in answer to a column detailing my Daugh Ter s Success in eliminating ants by persuasion. She had done the same thing Many years ago and was going to write to her son. M san Francisco to suggest that he try persuasion on the termites that were carrying off his Home. I warned her that termites were Tough surly and non communicative but i Haje to admit she writes but a Promise is a Promise. We have suffered a crashing defeat.
