FAIR OUTLOOK
FOR WATER
Mr. Chris Beck, who was up tho
canyon this week, says that somo of
tho stories of scarcity of water dur
ing tho coming summer havo boon n
llttlo over drawn. Ho Bays that the
winter winds tho past year wero
largely from tho south, ana pueu mo
snow on tho north sldo of tho hills,
leaving tho south side bare. Thero
will bo no big flush of wator this
spring, but tho streams will bo more
steady. Pittsburg Lako Is still frozen
ovor with lco and covered deop with
snow. Tho topB of tho Tyng cabins
are Just beginning to show above tho
snow, all of which leads him to think
that there will bo nearly a normal
supply of Irrigation water for tho
farmors this summer.
AMERICAN FORK WILL
HAVE BASE BALL TEAM
Stops wero taken this week to re
organize the American Fork baso ball
toam. Tho plana are to havo tho first
game on Decoration Day, when some
Salt Lako team will como down to
American Fork. It Is proposed to sot
tlo tho question of uniforms by hav
ing nine business men each buy a
suit nnd havo his name on tho ploy
or's shirt. This In a wny would put
tho business men back of tho club.
American Fork had ono of tho best
nmatour teams In tho stato last year,
and with tho oxcoptlon of Addle Miller
thoy nro all hero now with a now crop
to draw from also. Certainly the town
needs n ball team to put glpger Into
things during tho sunmmer months.
