Description
Letter from C. E. Godshalk to Sterling Morton sharing information about ticketing systems for the new control houses. The price of the tickets needs to be set by Morton and the trustees. The Arboretum will staff the control houses with men from the Burns Agency. The stacks have been taken out in the stackroom at Thornhill and are being install above the laboratory at the Arboretum Center. The books are ready to go to Arbor Lodge and should be sent next week. The old hog house at South Farm is being torn down for additional nursery planting space. The work on converting the old cookhouse into four apartments is progressing well. The rest of the men are removing undesirable trees. He is still enthusiastic about the trucksters. Winter classes are going well, and the new colored map will be ready by spring. Mr. Swink, with a bird group, discovered a great horned owl using an abandoned hawk's nest at the Arboretum.
