TUESDAY, MAY 21, 1946 THE LETHBREDGE HERALD Large Delegation Protests Sale Of 'Hat Children's Play Ground Property 2OSDICINE eity council was waited upon by the largest delegation of citizens in re- cent years when, they met in regu- lar meeting lass evening. About 50 men and women made up s tion to back up the protests of the civic plavjround commission re- garding the policy of the council of selling established playgrounds for building lots. General resentment at the lack of interest in the young people on the part of the council expressed by speakers repre- senting the playground commission also protested against the ac- tion of the council in disposing of the lands in question without con- sulting the commission which was set up by the council to supervise playgrounds and act- ia an advisory capacity io ihe council. Before the delegation was heard letters regarding ihe matter were read by the city clerk. The Trades and Council stated in a let- ter to the council that they were definitely opposed to the policy of the cniincii in regard to providing recreational facilities for the chil- dtea. Letters were also read from the plaverounds commission and from Aid. W. M. Rae who requested the mayor to withhold transfer of the land until the matter could be fully discussed by the council. The council was supported in its policy of selling the playground for building lots bv one speaker, Wax. Mitchell, who stated that chil- dren should play in their own back yard and that they would learn less evil than on the playground- Mitch- ell explained that he lived opposite one of the sites and he did not want a noisy playground ia front of his door. Not Related Mrs. Robt. Mitchell was next speaker. She denied any relation to the previous speaker and stated that the idea of keeping the chil- dren In their own back yard went out with hoop skirts and while her property adjoined the playground she was never annoyed by the noise. "Rather like the noise of happy children." said Mrs. Mitchell. Several others whose property is near the playground spoke in favor of having the land repurchased from the present owner. A motion was carried by the council that they would do everything possible to get DEWITT possession this piece of property. Aid. Rae then njoved that the sale of certain playground property on Braemar street be rescinded. The playground commission will be eoa- ctitewi before such action is taltea. Aid. Rae moved that the city solici- tor be instructed to bring in a byiaw at the next meeting m-hieb. -Kill re- serve all lands novr used as play- grounds. During the busy session of the council Aid, Home moved that tisej minister of health be petitioned a municipal hospital in) the city. Ale- Home SJated thatf there was a difiereace of opinion in the city as to whether %-e should give a grant to the present private- ly owned hospital to establish a new hospital or that the city should establish a publicly owned institu- tion. The alderman stated that this was one method by which the opin- ion of the ratepayers could be learned. Following Aid. Keatiag's remark of "Your motion was to establish a hospital here. I wouldn't vote for that." It was decided to lay the rnotioa oa the table till the councillors can make a study of the hospitals act. MacKENZtESAYS Iran Issue Again Giving UN.
