Alta., Jan. 3, 1909 To the Editor Daily Herald, Lethbridge, Dear your paper a few is- sues ago you made a suggestion, about appointing a parks commis- sion. I presume you brought out the suggestion for discussion, if so, kind- ly allove mo space for a few remarks. Now, 1 fully recognize the amount of mixed knowledge required of the three sciences, horticulture, floricul- ture, and landscape To be able to act as a parks commission all due respect to these gentle- men you have any one of them pretend to have a 'very small amount of the knowledge requir ed to be able to act as our park com- mission. Someone says .they will learn. Yes but the city can't afford to educate these gentlemen in order that they may act as oxir commission. Besides I infer from our papers, our council for the ensuing year are bound to have a parks commission or parks commissioner. The idea the council have -is certainly a commendable one. As a ratepayer, I would prefer the latter name, commissioner does away with, any confusion which undoubtedly would occur had more than one on a parks commission- To me it would seem almost impossible for a park commission composed of four men t< work, successfully (without these "our men were capable .men and knew their business.) The men under them who knew their business would have to laugh at the remarks made b; these Again we need a commissioner at once, and a com- missioner who could take hold of the city work at once. We should not spend a cent on any park or boule- vard improvement without a park's Feathers Feather Boas Clean and Curled by an Expert Mrs Douglas Westmin- ster Road Facing the Lake lawn grass on clay seed beds. What should have been 'done w -this, the top'virgin'soil should have been removed first, placed to one side, and the boulevard graded down five or six inches below grade; level and then the boulevard replaced on the boulevard. This would have made our boulevards ready for seed at" any moment. As it is I wonder iiow many commissioner's say so, because} ;it would only be more money thrown away. We have a man in our.midst, who I am sure would fill the position1', the city calls, for, and fill it creditably to himself and the city. I am satisfied he knows sufficient'.: about the three sciences, horticulture, floriculture, and landscape gardening; to enable him. to understand all-our city would ex- pect from a man in that position. I also believe he is well versed in soil and climatic very essential thing indeed. A man like this is worth the city's while going after. .It is.very essential our first improvements should be in good .and independent nands. This I am sat- isfied would be the case if Mr. Geo. Taylor, florist of this were could chosen, get city I fancy the city- Mr. Taylor by making him a offer.- We want to remember he "has consider- able at stake, and would require some assurance from the council before he :are up his present business to take on theirs, which would only be a rea- onable bargain. I am satisfied he vould require" a free hand (after the council had shown him what they pro posed to do) with the working out of ;he city's proposal. This would only i be fair play an! it-caaaot be "donef any other way. He would have to I with t of our boulevards are covered virgin soil. not grow lawn grass on a clay seed bed, successfullv." You must have .at agent how many at what -Mich 'man hit worked, the posfieaior of the paper, of being the man who has done the work.
