PACE TWO -THE ALMA RECORD- Thursday. Juno 22. 1922 IS TO INSPECT . HEALTH RESORTS STATU PLANS PORTABLE LA BORATORY FOR INSPECTION OF T1IK SUMMER RESORTS I.ansing, June 'J'J, Final prepa tions for an open and coepcrative in spection of Michigan summer resorts by officials of the state health de partment have been made and it is expected that an assistant engineer will leave here during the last week in June in charge of the laboratory truck on the annual tour. The route will extend northward to Mackinaw and thence along the eastern s-ide of the state. All resorts inspected by the "por table laboratoiy" during the coming reason will be placed in one of four classes; excellent, satisfactory, dang erous or unsafe; and the names of the resorts and responsible officers to gether with its health classification will bo published, Dr. R. M. Olin, state health commissioner announced todaj . Classification will 1c based on the water, mill; ar.d food supplies, sewage and garbage disposal, hou.-dng con dition?, bathing beach sanitation, drainage and nmsmiito control, neat ness and general appearance of the grounds. In 1121 the health depart ment representatives discovered in many resorts an absence of food and milk control, inadequate sewage and gaibage disposal, and stream and lake pollution. Proprietors were warned and ordered to improve con ditions. "Resort sanitation av condu tod by the Michigan Department of Health does not corsi. t necessarily of mere inspection of garbage tans and the prying into nuisances, Dr. Olin said. "It consists of cairyiiig on in the field the functions of the department," he added. All laboratory examinations are made free of charge by the laboratory bureau. Keports of t he" findings will be made to Dr. Olin at the dose of the inspection tour ar.d advice and recommendations will bo m-ded out accordingly by tin dcpaitment. (JET YOUR MOU'IHS SET FOR THE CIRCUS PE AM IS ON THE MORROW The elephant?, the bands, the fresh roasted peanuts, the calliopes, the clown1"., the roaring beasts, the pink and spangled ladies, the sawdust scent and the great stritches of tents, the big, sticky popcorn balls and the "blood-sweating behemoth" all these and many other sights and sounds will be lure Saturday, for with that morning comes the John Robinson Circus. Daj light should disclose the "squa dron" the first swift train that brings the "cook house" and the heavy stake, pole and canvas wagons steaming into the city. In r.o time at all the smoke from the ranges wilj float above the lot" for the John Rcbirson family of over one thou sand must have its meals regularly. By the time the last section is in, bringing with it the quiet sleepers from which the performers will emerge and follow the long lines of baggage wagons, tableau wagon, and cages to the grounds, the ciicus dining room will be ready, table's ret with inviting neatness and clean clad waiters bring in appetizing food. Meanwhile, the acres of tents will have been raising and not long after breakfast the big top with its seating capacity of over 10,000 people, will loom against the morning sky. At 10 a .m. Saturday the great street parade with its many bands and three calliopes, a parade that the circus men say has more of novelty and interest in each section than has been contained in the entire pageant of the big show before, will start on its glittering way thru downtown thoroughfares. A corps of pretty girl buglers will attract the eye anil stir the blood with martial fanfares, whik tableau wagons and allegorical cars will be further distinguished, by their loads of personable feminity, it is announced. Of course, there will be the cages of wild beasts in which will sit petite women trainers, and the clowns, the cavaliers and ladies, the huge hippo and herds of elephants and camels. And throughout the long pageant, say the announcement:; will be novelties galore. The performances will be given at 2 and 8 p. m., and reserve seats may be had at Murphy's Drug Store at the same prices that will be charged at the ticket wagon on the show grounds. Letters Awarded to 'Hi" liaseballers Lottcrr were awarded the first of the week to eleven members of the Alma High School baseball team, which finished Ihe season as the runnerup for the honors of the Cen tral Michigan league, a new organi zation, of high schools of Clare, Isa bella anel Gratiot counties this year, which has elone much to increase the interest in the diamond sport among these high schools because of the closer rivalry that is produced. Letters we're awarded to Chaffin, Tripp, Strong, Wagner, Elias, Dick, Uurt, Anderson, Wilk, Gee and Sar tor. Most cf the men who won letters with the baseball team will be back in high school next year and the prospects are that the lecal school will again have a strong aggregation in the Central Michigan League.

John M. Haller, in charge of the title division for secretary of state Charles J. Leland, informed attor ney Howard D. Brown, of the Detroit Automobile Club's legal department, that this was the condition existing in. the title office. Unless motorists come forward with their applications there will be many without titles July 1, Mr. Haller asserted. State department records .show there still are KOODOO cars without certificates of title, only about L'00,000 having been supplied. Unless there is a decided increase in the number of applications at once the department will be unable to com plete the woik within the specified time, Mr. Haller stated. Michigan probably will follow the policy of Maryland and other state: that put similar laws into effect. Tin se motorists without titles when the time limit expires will be taken to court, as the law provides. Mr. Ilalh r says in Baltimore, when the Maryland law became effective, more than 700 motorists were sum moned to court on the first day. All paid large fines. Motorists may be interested in the statement by Mr. Haller that then are appioximately 100 ceitificates of title lying in the office at Lansing unclaimed. They have hem rcturne ' because the owners could not be lo cated by the post office department.
