I “The exploitation of natural re-| sources by private interests in the p a s t' has been com paratively easy where either dishonest officials or those that do not hold strong views on the neces- sity ^or conservation have been in charge of our affairs of government,\ said Governor Smith. “This is brought about mainly by the fact that so few, people have any knowledge of these resources. F o r instance, how many people of the 120,000,000 th a t the country now holds had ever heard be­ fore the recent oil scanaffls^'of Teapot Dome or E lk Kills as natural resourc­ es for the oil supply for our navy? In our own state, how many people** have any intim a te knowledge of the Adi­ rondack preserve or of our great w a ­ ter power resources on th^ St. DaW- rence and NWgara rivers? HoW many people know the value to the people of this state of the Long Sault Rapids in the St. Lawrence river? “It is this lack of understanding of our resources on the part of the great rank and file of the people th a t has! made their alienation and exploitation j in the past a com p aratively easy ’ thing.’* The Governor referred to the oil TTPUL LADY J l c.ZON’.

His team of horses, one of which was blind, was being driven w ith this load of coal through a “short cut’’ of the Farview hospital grounds and evi­ dently the team . somehow A t a irieeting of the American Le­ gion park committee, held on Monday afternoon, it was decided to proceed at once with the work, of improving Orange Square so that by next sum­ m e r it will be a beauty spot instead of an unsightly blot on. th e fair face of the city. . ,, The committee ;has, entered into a contract) with a surveyor to* lay out the proper levels for the new-iJawn, arrange for curbing fo r -the • walkic ^erpba the ^u,are, th e placingMof new ■I^^Ches, which will probably of bf compete construqtipn, and the temp^!* elin^. and painting of tbci new grand,<> stolid. The plans also call for a syet^ - tern of piping, under the lawn th a t w a || ' perm it of uniform sprinkfl«g .to ‘ the, g rass in first class condition. / ; The work this fall will consist of ploughing up The lawns; grading P0^ering, with manurei This will^bb. followed in the spring by seein g , re­ grading and rolling, fixing the w alka and band stands, etc. By w a rm w e a ther everything should be in excel­ lent shape and Orange gquai*e a pride to the city. ' In connection with the work of beautifying Orange Square, the Am­ erican Legion will install a new sys­ tem of street decoration in and around the square. Metal sockets will be placed a t uniform distances near the curb and, at certain places in th© park. In these sockets are in.serted 3 2 foot flag poles carrying a flag four feet by six feet. The idea is to, se­ cure uniform ity in city decorattng, and the Legion will make an effort to have this system adopted generally throughout the city by merchants on the business streets 'and householders in the residence portions of the city. The flag pole is securely locked in the socket, and when it is removed a metal cap. covers the opening. By getting this system installed through the American Legion the cost will be but $5 for each, uhit. This price does . .. not net the Legioh any profit, but Is the pdbe they cari obtatir by having the s.v3tem installed in quantities. - This uniform system of decoration has been, adopted iri Middletown, Newburgh, Syracuse, Niagara Falls and many other cities arid has been found very satisfactory, as it gives a uniform appearance th a t is very effec­ tive.
