Land values in cities with well de-.
veloped park systems are incerased
about $200 per lot, Prof. Harlow O.
Whittemore of the landscape design
department said yesterday, and :n
rural districts they are raised at least
the same amount per acre.
A system of municipal sparks could
be developed in Ann Ar'jor at little
cost and effort, he added, if the
natural surroundings adjacent to the
Huron River and present park citiesS
were assimilated into the present park
.layout. This, he said, would entail
a planned program of expansion and
development in which river frontage,
scenic drives and recreational facili-
ties like indoor and outdoor swim-

Also, he said, the tract of flat land
lying across the river from Long-
shore Park should be sought and de-
veloped as part of that park.
The land south of the Botanical
Garden and Stadium Boulevard
could advantageuosly be turned into
a park, he claimed, as it is too low to
be suitable for building purposes. In
he center of this tract a combina-
tion indoor and outdoor swimming
pool could be erected, he said, modern
housing innovations which would per-
mit a shelter house structure for out-

Forestry School's experiment forest,
There is no reason why, with cer-
tain simple adjustments and en-
gineering projects, the Huron River
could not be made to form a lake at.
least six miles long above Ann Arbor-
which would permit a boating course.

the expenses to be entailed, though

taxes therefrom. This is proved, he
said, by experiment of this nature
successfully completed -in Kansas.

FREEZING - COLD STORAGE
1r's NOT TOO EARLY to begin thinking about the damage moths and heat
will do to your precious furs. In Marchande's cold storage vaults they'll
be far from summer heat, as nature intended. Moths cannot live or
work in such frigid temperature.
Remember, at Marchande's your furs are safe from fire and theft and are
insured from the time we receive them until they are delivered in the fall.
