Alone and to Aid in
Bathers at the Tidal Basin bathing
beach were urged to co-operate
with the management In order that
precautionary measures for safeguarding
lives may be effective, by
Col. C. O. Sherrlll, superintendent of
public grounds and buildings, as a
result of the drowning of C. E.
Shields, publicity representative of
the Southern Kaiiway System, Monday.

about 20 or 30 feet from a place
where a lifeguard ijas stationea

of thousands of bathers, Col. Sherrlll
Need of Cs 0>l?Mm
"This case emphasises the necessity
for every person who goes
bathing at the Tidal Basin to be
accompanied by someone, if at all
possible, as a protection. In view
of the large attendance at the
bathing beach, amounting during
the recent hot days to as many as
8.000 bathers. every precaution
should be taken by the bathers to
avoid such unfortunate occurrences."
Representative Royal Woodruff.
Michigan, a member of the House
District Committee, yesterday sent
a complaint to Col. Sherrill regarding
the price charged for bathing
suits at the beach.
Representative Woodruff claimea
that in view of the fact that this is
a municipal bathing beach, there
should be no profiteering, which he
believes there is when a charge of
50 cents is made for a bathing suit.
5 cents for a towel, and 10 cents
for checking valuables. He also
decried the charge of 10 cents made
for checking the wraps of persons
who motor to the beach in a bathing
suit. Col. Sherrill replied that
he would investigate the matter and
would do all in Mis power to rectify
any excessive charges
