E. S. Galloway and Associ
ates Plan Pleasure Lake
to be Built on Their Prop
erty on Iotla.
FINAL FATEFUL DAYS OF PRESS'
BIG SALESMANSHIP CLUB HEKH
One of the results coming from the
recent visit of Mr. Max, Munzen
heituer of Dallas, president of the
Texas Mica Corporation, of which
Mr. E. S. Galloway, is vice-president
npra1 manacer. was a plan
worked out -by these two gentlemen
for th,. opening ot a summer resori
rtv fnrmerlv the N. L.
Barnard tract, nine miles northwest
of town. ,0
Mr. Gallowav, who owns. 48 per
cent of the interests and Mr. Munzen
heimer, s who together with several
other prominent Dallas business
men, owns the other 52 per cent, are
heartily in accord with the plan and
are now working ' out the .. details
incident to its consummation.
This property, covering an area of
noAv 7(W acres is unusually well
located for this purpose, abounding
in beautiful mountain scenery, Hav
ing a virgin forest of poplar and
other native trees, and crossed by
numerous small streams. According
to their plan, a natural basin is to be
dammed across, creating a lake over
40 acres in size, Around the lake
thus formed will be built a meander
ing road, and the, adjoining territory
:.. thf hin t line of sum-
mer cottages rustic in design and
beautified with shrubs and walks. In
a central location will be situated a
dining hall and a community center
for the social life ' of the resort.
Electric lights and water will be pro
vided from the power produced by
the dam for the comfort and conven
ience of residents and a local dairy
will furnish milk, butter and eggs.
Th. lake will be stocked with fish,
' a bathing .beach , covered with white
flint ' pebbles added. Hunting privi
leges will be granted as a part of the
' inducement to spend a summer in
this delightful location, there being
a plentiful supply of pheasants, quail,
squirrel and , other small game in
l lly u.iuai - -
improvement will await the nnai. ap
proval of the other Dallas associates
in the deal, but in the .event that this
is arranged, construction of the dam
will stdrt soon, with th other work
to follow as rapidly aSt possible.
While.it is not the. belief of Mr. Gal
loway that the resort could be fin
ished in time for the present season,
1 it could be well on its way and en
tirely complete by the next summer.

Week, I desire to bring to the atten

comes from the neglect ot our torests.
For several years the Nation has
observed Forest Protection Week.
It is fitting that this observance be
enlarged. We have too freely spent
the rich and magnificent gift that na
turP bestowed on us. In our eager
ness to use that gift we have stripped
our forests; we have permitted fires
to lay -waste and devour them; we
have all too often destroyed the
young growth and the seed from .
which new forests might spring. And
though we already feel the first grip
of timber shortage, we have barely
begun to save and restore.
We have passed tne pioneer stage
and are no longer excusable tor con
tinuing this unwise dissipation of a
great resource, to tne ianou u

th nhstacles that have to
be met, nor the difficulty of changing ,
old ideas and practices. We must all ,
put our hands to this common task.
It is not enough that the Federal,
State and local governments takP the
lead.' There must be a change m our
i titnf1f Our industries,
our landowners, our farmers, all o,ur
citizens must learn to treat om
forests as crops, to be usea dui aiu
to be renewed. We must learn to
lend our woodlands as careiuuy
we tend our farms. . '
Let us apply to this creauye
the boundless energy and skill we
have so long spent in harvesting the
free gifts of nature. The forests of
the future must be started today.
Our children are dependent on our
course. We are bound by a solemn
obligation from which no. evasion
cKfnrfiio-c will relieve us.

sibility to unbotn generations, nless
