All the.figures have been received from
the traffic over the Cloudcroft road at
the passenger offices of ihe Southwest

mountain resort for the past year was
larger than at any time in the history
ot the resort. The figures also show
tlat none of the mountain resorts, Colo
rado Springs, Denver or other points in
Colorado received as much of the vaca
tion patronage as the Paeifie coast dur
ing the past summer. This may have
been due to the number of big conven

for December 11, has been postponed
until after the holidays.
