Geraidton Recreation Ground CONDITION DEPLORED Sir. — It, is rather disturbing to note the condition of (he Gcraldton liecrea tiou Ground. During all seasons these grounds are used constantly, but it would be possible during the cricket season to keep tlieia in some state of repair. However, such is not the case and an inspection of these grounds will justify this statenpnt. Many small si ones and rubble which cover the oval make play hazardous and arc danger ous to the players, inasmuch j'is they could result in serious injuries being sustained, which in uo;-nial circum stances, would not occur. Actually, the rubble on th-* oval /-niid easily be removed, and the condition of the ground generally is to be deplored. Slightly belcw the surface the ground is as hard as granite, and it is obvious that th;' s«»il need* l-msening. The area in the vicinity oi' the -oal posts is devoid of grass. If ihese matters were promptly at vended to the difficulty could be overcome before the commence...

It would seem, in some instances at least, that greater store is placed on the retention of this source to bolster up the civic exchequer than on the effective control of traffic ana the uninviting alternative which eonfioi-ts the community when this is not achieved. Although the whole problem bristles with difficulties, per haps the time has arrived when stock j should be taken of the position as it (operates to-day. The recent resignation of the traffic inspector of the Munici pality of Geraldton (Mr. H. W. Thomas) lias served to bring this ques tion into the fo...
