will welcome the announcement that
M. A. Clevett is to return to this city
in September, to take up work as
physical director in the association.
Mr. Clevett had charge of the phys
ical work two years ago, and was. re
leased last year with the understand
ing that he was expected to return
with the completion of the new build
ing. Since leaving hero a year ago,
he has spent part of his time on a
ranch in Montana, but ha3 been for
the greater part of the time engaged
as physical director of the V. M. C. A.
at Billing3, Montana, where he has
been acquiring experience and train
ing that will be useful to him in his
enlarged work here. At the present
time, Mr. Clevett is at Lake Geneva,
taking work in the Y. M. C. A. train
ing school summer term. He is due
to be in Rock Island September 1,
to supervise the installation of the
gymnasium equipment, and to make
preparations for opening up the physi
cal work just as soon as the building
Not only is Mr. Clevett a clever
gymnast and athlete, and a director
of unusual ability, but he is particu
larly fine as a swimmer. His work
will include the supervision and use
of the new Robinson Memorial swim
ming pool, where he will give instruc
tion in swimming and all sorts of
aquatics to the men and boys. He
will also have charge of the outdoor
gymnasium, or playground, which will
be put into use next spring, and which
will be utilized for games and athletic
sports, as well as for regular gym
nasium classwork during the summer
The announcement that Mr. Clevett
is to have charge of all this work Is
a guarantee that it will be pushed
with all the energy and enthusiasm
of which he is capable.
MATROX IS SEC'VRED.
Another important post in the new
building organization has just been

Following is an inspection report
of the scenic and Rock River Va'.ley
loutes made by T. R. Agg, state engi
This report is submitted with the
full knowledge that it is impossible
in a somewhat hurried inspection to
take account of all factors that have
bearing on the question at issue. Yet
it is believed that for purposes of
comparison a few general observations
will be sufficient. For convenience
the conditions are grouped under the
Leadings: Location, topography, pres
ent condition, reconstruction and
Location Each road serves a dis
tinct local territory in addition to
such through traffic as may use it.
The Improvement o the reads can
only be justified by its value as a local
road, although incidentally it may at
tract through traffic and thus adver
tise a community as being thoroughly
awake and progressive". Except for a
small section north of Watertown,
the improvement of either of the roads
will be of little or no benefit to the
territory contiguous to - the other.
Both should be improved.
The scenic route is approximately
six miles longer than the Rock River
The population in the cities and
villages along the scenic route (ex
clusive of cities on bcth routes) is
about three times as great as that in
the cities and villages along the
Rock ; River Valley route.
The rural population in the territory
tributary to the Rock River Valley
route is greater than that in the terri
tory tributary to the scenic route and
the qharacter of , the country adjacent
to the Jcck River Valley route aver
ages better for agricultural purposes
than does that adjacent to the scenit
TopographyBoth roads are locat
ed so that drainage can be secured
readily. Several bad hi.ls on the
scenic route require grading and a
section of loV lying road in Erie town
ship on the feock River Valley route
must be graded to prevent overflow.
Several verjr Bandy sections of road
were noted oa the scenic route and
one or two on the Rock River Valley
route. This 1 of no ' significance,
when the roads' are Improved."
Several sections 0f the scenic rdute
should be straightened and relocated
further from the river bacJi...
Present Condition On the day in
spected the Rock River Valley route
was decidedly better than the scenic,
although here was evidence all the
way along'ithe Bcenic route that work
