Of Isno to the City building a sewage disposal Plant that will alleviate the unsatisfactory condition of the 14th Street Beach making a place to swim very accessible to bathers in the Vicinity of the site of the proposed swimming Pool besides creating a centrally located bathing Beach the deepening and cleaning of Root River will provide boating in summer and ice skating in Winter. Also it will remove Racine to biggest sore spot and make Island Park the Beautiful and popular place it was Many years a to. Waterloo la., and other cities have proven that the can be done by building one or two dams and a chaps putting into the River the Stater Winch otherwise would have been used in he swimming Pool.

The several Hundred Page richly illustrated Ca Talog issued by his father has been replaced by Small ads in the farm papers and the Chicken farm is kept up More As a matter of tradition than As a Money making business.
