GOLDEN HORSE OF ANTIQUITY?—California's golden Palomino is believed by many to be the
modern reincarnation of the golden horse referred to in legend and song of ancient times. This
magnificent animal has been bred by Dwight Murphy of Santa Barbara County, Calif., after it
had become almost extinct since the days of the Spanish dons, w-ho brought the first Palomino
horse to the New World. The Palomino name refers to the color—burnished gold and pure white
mane and tail. The animals are seen in Santa Barbara’s Old Spanish Days Fiesta, which will be
held this year on August 7, 8 and 9.

re-activated for use again.

'Week in West' Tours
Center Around Yellowstone
PARK, July 26.—For several years,
visitors to Yellowstone via Gallatin
Gateway have been extending their
Western vacations by spending from
a few days to a week or two at Gal
latin Gateway Inn. Last year, of
ficial park tours were reduced from
three and one-half to two and one
half days. As practically all trav
elers wish to remain in the Rocky
Mountain region longer than that,
planned vacations including a stay
at the inn were organized.
These “week-in-the-WestN vaca
tions were so well received that they
will be offered again this summer.
The plan includes the regular tour
of Yellowstone plus a stay of four
days or longer at Gallatin Gateway
Inn, at one fixed price. The rate
includes such side trips as the guest
may wish to make into the surround
ing Rocky Mountain recreational
On a typical vacation, the tour
party would leave Gallatin Gate
way Inn in open-top coaches for the
80-mile mountain drive to Yellow
stone, arriving at Old Faithful the
same afternoon. Two days are spent
in this land of spouting geysers and
bubbling ’•paintpots,” of the glor
iously colorful Grand Canyon and of
beautiful Yellowstone Lake. On the
third day, the party is back at Gal
latin Gateway Inn in time for din
The remainder of the week is oc
cupied in making side trips from the
inn. One day is spent in driving
over the mountains into the beauti
ful Madison River Valley for a visit
to historic Virginia City. This town,
one of the oldest in Montana, has
many buildings dating back to
vigilante days. On a nearby hill is
the famous ‘Boot Hall’ cemetery
where five notorious outlaws are
buried. And nearby is Alder Gulch,
where visitors may try their hands
at panning fold in a stream that was
once the scene of the richest placer
gold strike in the State.
Another motor trip of unusual in
terest is to newly-opened Morrison
Cave. This new State park has been
recently developed by the National
Park Service. The seven chambers
of the cave, connected by winding
passages in the rock, are more than
half a mile in length. The cave is
spectacularly situated high up in the
Tobacco Root Mountains overlook
ing the Jefferson River and valley.
Events of Interest
Not Far Away
For Washingtonians who wnn’t
have time to get away for a longer
vacation, or for those whose jobs
won't let them get too far away,
there's plenty to see and do within
a short jump from Washington.
Here is a list of “quickie vaca
tions” for the first fortnight of
August, as prepared for The Star
by the District of Columbia Division !
of the American Automobile Asso

boat races of interest to yachting
enthusiasts — the Gibson Island
Yacht Squadron's Cedar Point race, |
for cruising and racing classes, and
the Maryland Yacht Club's races 1
from Miles River to Gibson Island, j
3—Another interesting barge trip, |
under direction of the Office of Na
tional Capital Parks, up the old re-,

Chain Bridge at 2 p.m., returning at
6. after going up as far as Cabin
John or Carderock. Reservations
must be made in advance.
5-9—Cumberland's half-mile race

Westminister Riding Club's show,
an all-day event on the 9th. On

Carroll County events could well be
made the dual objective of a two
day trip.
10- Another barge trip, starting
from Carderock and passing through
Widewater and on up to Great
Falls. A guide from the Office of
National Capital Parks will describe
the country through which the'

Will Rogers Shrine Stands
At Haunt of Humorist
—The Will Rogers Shrine of the
Sun, half-way up Cheyenne Moun
tain. near Colorado Springs, is one
of Colorado’s most impressive at
Built of stone cut from one solid
block of Colorado granite, the shrine
dominates the landscape for miles
around. At night, concealed flood
lights highlight the monument as it
stands sentry duty.
The shrine is fashioned after an
English feudal castle with particu
lar attention toward making it ap
pear rugged. More than 7.500 tons
of Colorado pink granite went into
the construction of the shrine. The
rest of the building is made of steel
and concrete and no nails or wood
have been used.
Inside, the shrine are four floors.
The first depicts in murals the his
tory of the Colorado Springs region
while the other three floors are filled
with pictures telling the story of
Will Rogers’ life.
The late Spencer Penrose, a Colo
rado Springs pioneer, built the
monument in memory of his friend
and he chose the site because it was
at this particular point that he and
Rogers had so often stood and ad
mired the beauty of the surrounding
country’. A plaque oa the stairway
states that it was from this point
that 5?pbulon Pike first saw the peak
which bears his name.
The old fort of Gragoata, in Brazil,
will become a museum.
Maine Town's Old Homes
To Be Displayed Aug. 13
WISCASSET, Me., July 26.—This
little Maine community, famous for
its magnificent examples of early
American architecture, will hold its
14th annual Open House Day on
August 13.
Many of the finest of the old
homes, including the noted Sortwell
and Smith houses, will again be open
to the public that day.
Wiscasset and its old homes have
become increasingly well known in
recent years because of the visits
of architects from all parts of the
Nation who come here to obtain
source material.
The majority of Wiscasset homes
were built for wealthy sea captains
who obtained their riches in the Far
East trade during the last century.
Wiscasset’s heyday was in 1812 when
it was one of the most opulent towns
of its size in the world. Today, the
little, elm-shaded coastal town is
much as it was in those days.
Extremely little modem building
has taken place in latter years thus
the charm of the town has been
There is little organized activity
here on Open House Day. Visitors
simply drift from one point of in
terest to the other. Lunch and tea
is served under the elms on the lawn
of the Sortwell house by the ladies
of the town.
Wiscasset was “discovered” dur
ing the present generation after the
craze for ultra modem construction
and design had subsided and people
turned to the simple beauty of the
Colonial period.
The Georgia period, often called
the golden age of American archi
tecture, is perpetuated in Wiscasset’*
finest home*.

crowd in which there is a small
sprinkling of women; the ordinary

are almost exclusively for men. They
look like small bars or restaurants;
often they have several tables with
chairs strung haphazardly along the
pavement of the sidewalk.

—The purchase of Paradise Beach
by Axel Wenner-Gren, philanthropic
Swedish millionaire who is making

a site adjoining Mr. Wenner-Gren’s
magnificent Hog Island estate,

Mr. Wenner-Gren’s first step upon
acquiring Paradise Beach was to
slash admission prices for the sum

Bahamian dishes, are ^erved to the
accompaniement of music by native
minstrels. Later, in connection with

Floating Bridge Used '
For Many Years i
Now Has Detour
TORONTO. July 26.—The
flooating bridges of Chemong
Lake in the Kawartha Lakes
district of Ontario and long a
tourist attraction, have a new
interest this year. One of the
two bridges is 1'* miles long—
the longest floating bridge in
the world—and it now also
boasts a detour. j
When it was found that it
was necessary to make repairs ]
to the bridge, the clever engi
neers constructed a sort of "U,”
branching out from the main
part and built exactly like the
rest of the bridge, and over
this the traffic moves unin
terrupted, with water lapping
the edges of the planks and
every one quite unconcerned.
These floating bridges art
made of planks of wood, an-,
chored by chains to a series of
concrete pilons sunk in the
lake and have been in use for
many years.
