School Playground Improvements, 1913

We are certain the addition of gymnastical apparatus would improve any playground.  From the May 15, 1913 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), page 7:

Improving School Play Ground

The Skidmore school grounds have been greatly improved by the addition of gymnastical apparatus consisting of a four section swing, horizontal bars and a three section teeter-totter.

The work on this was started by the first and second primaries and intermediate rooms, which gave an entertainment in the opera house for this benefit a few weeks ago.  The school board heartily sanctioned the improvement and are helping in the good work.
