Mrs McPherson (A.W.A.) said if Co'.lingwood could have a child ren's play-ground surely Footscray could. Children were the best asset that any country in the world could have. The children of to-day would be" the men and women of to-morrow. Unless the children could be happy they could not be healthy. Military training was a factor in making better boys, but what about the girls who were equally as important. The hand that rocked the cradle ruled the world. The children did not have sufficient room to play, and the street was no place for them, They wanted a healthy generation, „ Cr McDonald—Do you advocate one piece of ground, or several?
