Will start supervised play next Monday
Although the swimming pool at the local play grounds has been closed due to necessary water economy, a daily program of hikes, games, contests and various other supervised activities will get underway at the playground Monday. All the boys and girls of Norwalk are urged to take part and Miss Kathryn Franklin, assistant playground director, will be in charge.
At the first session Monday, a program will be outlined and a time set for the various games and contests.
