Public Safety Demands Prompt
Report and Strict Quarantine
of Whooping Cough.
As many of us know tho town is in
the midst of quite an epidemic of
whooping cough. It is very appar
ent, however, that some parents do
not view the diseaso with tho serious
ness that its nature justifies, for thoro
arc families who have the disease,
and who have had it, and who havo
not reported to tho Board of Health
nor tho Quarantine Physician. Such
parents do not tako seriously enough
their duty in a community, and do
not realize that they aro deliberately
jeopardizing tho lives of their neigh
bors' children. People who thought
lessly let such a contagion run un
reported need a stirring-up of their
civic conscience, and people who do it
deliberately havo no right to live in
a community..
Three children havo already died of
tho disease within tho last few months
in our town, and if the disease runs
into tho winter more of the little ones
will be taken. If tho present flagrant
carelessness on tho part of parents
continues, somebody will have to bo
held responsible for tho needless sac
rifice of somebody's baby. It is a well
known fnct among physicians that
none of tho children's diseases causo
so many deaths in children under 18
months of age as whooping cough;
and no parent who has had experience
with it but who dreads it as they
dread no other disease. Why parents
should ignore theso facts to avoid
quarantino is beyond comprehension.
In tho absence of the quarantino
physician I take this liberty of calling
the attention of tho peoplo and tho
Board of Health to this condition, feel
ing sure that with the co-operation
of parents this epidemic can bo
stamped out before tho winter months
come. In talking with the chairman
of tho Board of Health, Mayor Swapp,
I am assured that the Board will uso
every ..means at hand .to control tho
epidemic, and that where parents per
sistently refuse to report cases of the
diseaso or suspicious cases of illness,
they will not hesitate to prosecute tho
Let us, as good citizens, get togeth
er on this and see that every case Is
placed under quarantine before' it has
a chance to spread and tako more ,of
the lives of our babies.
County Commissioners H. W. Lunt
and William Lund left for Salt Lako
City Monday night to wait upon the
Stnto Road Commission in the inter
ests of tho third section of the Cedar
City Long Valley road project, on
which tho federal government, tho
state nnd Iron county aro cooperat
ing. Good progress is being made on
sections one and two, which will soon
be completed mnking tho road good
for automobile travel through the
gulch into the upper reaches of the
canyon. It would, indeed, be a sin
nnd a shame to leave off the work at
this point when by pushing on a few
miles further in a far easier country
to build a good road through, tho top
can be reached, giving a good road
for inter-county travel releasing largo
large tracts of lumber so much needed
in the development of the southern
country, and making accessible to the
tourist tho wonderful scenic beauties
of the Cedar Breaks, and to locnl peo
plo tho pleasant summer linunts nnd

tudes. Besides Senator U. T. Jones nnd

county including C. II. Bigelow nnd
Rnndnll L. Jones. These men met
with tho State officials to urge on
them the need of completing at onco
tho third section of the Cednr-Long-valley
There is no section of road in the
state more needed than this, and we
certainly trust thnt a plan can be
worked out by the County nnd State
Road Commissioners for its early
Work is progressing satisfactorily
on the concrete rond from Lund to
Cedftr City, the only factor thnt limits
progress being tho need of men and
teams. Four dollars a day for men
and tho same for teams is offered by
the company, and sections of the road
are being sub-contracted to those who
prefer that arrangement.

Caravan Correspondent
Through the courtesy of the Iron
County Record, Salt Lake's Boy
Scout Caravan wishes to express ap
preciation for the splendid reception
accorded the party in Cedar City
last Tuesdaf. Every member of the
Caravan wishes to thank all thoso
who in any way helped entertain.
The meal served enmo at the oppor
tune moment after a hard day's drive
and the band acted as an appetizer.
D. E. Hammond, Salt Lake's Boy
Scout Executive, who leads the party,
Dr. John H. Taylor, Assistant, Dr.
George Wharton James, noted author
from Pasadena, California, Dr. Joshua
II. Paul, and Dr. C. G. Plummer or
Salt Lake, as well as the thirty scout
lenders, aro united in the opinion that
Cedar City staged one of tho finest
receptions on the trip. The 170 Boy
Scouts also enjoyed themselves.
The future of Iron County's largest
city looks bright. With tourist travel
to Utah's wonderland incrbasing,
preparations should bo mndo now to
take care of it The southern part
of the state has a wonderful opportu
nity nnd must take advantage of it in
keeping with "See Utah First."
In saying adieu we wish personally
to thank Mnyor Swapp and nil those
who nssisted, and state wo enjoyed
every moment including the outdoor
program and dance in the college
The Wednesday hnlf-holiday waa
devoted to a baseball cjame between
two local teams calling themselves
the "Bears" and tho "Bearcats." The
"Bears" easily took the game with a
scoro of 15 to 2. The lineup was as
follows :
Bears. Bearcats
Rosenberg C. P. Wilkinson
Hunter P. Ross
Leigh ' lb. j- Sargent
Root 2b, .' Forbes
Watson 3b. Nelson
Green S.S, . Ivin3
C. Wilkinson L.F. ' Stapley
Milne R.F. Fifo
Davis C. F. Wood
Pratt Root of Milford, manager of
the Milford baseball tenm, umpired
the game. Tho Bears had matters
pretty much in their own hands, but
received a surprise in tho fifth in
nings when Ross struck out Wilkin
son, Milne and Davis all in a row.
In tho seventh Nelson replaced Ross,
but took all that innings to warm up.
After that he pitched' good ball. No
bomeruns were batted, but Watson
The 1020 census shows a 47.1

Gifted Soprano, Final Chautauqua
Attraction, Has Leading Place
in List of. Favorites.
The Record went to press last week
before the final numbers of tho Chau
tauqua program had been given. A
most popular and interesting lecture
was the feature of Friday evening
meeting. Dr. Charles S. Price was
tho speaker, and his pictures and com
ments on his Alaska experiences held
tho audience in pleasant suspense to
tho finish.
Tho Junior Chnutauqua games that
wero scheduled for Saturday, never
did materialize; in fact, it is tho gen
eral feeling that tho junior features

classed the really good Stearns-Gregg
performance. Miss Fny Epperson did
some bird imitations that plcnsed her
audience, her whistling being a unique
and rcditablc part of the last day's
Last came Josephine Mnrtino, a fa
vorite whose voice was one of the
really big offerings of the week. Many
voted her the star attraction of the
Chautnuun program this season.
The conclusion of the week's work
marked tho signing of a contract for
next season's Chnutnufiun. , The busi

Forest Supervisor Maco went over
tho road between Hurricane and tho
Kaibab Indian Reservation on tho 10th
inst. as a member of tho committee
appointed at the recent road conven
tion for that work. Tho committee
comprised, besides tho supervisor, W.
W. Seegmiller of Knnab, chairman;
C. B. Petty, J. W. Imlny and James
Judd of Hurricano, and C. II. Bigelow.
Mr. Bigelow, however, was unablo to
attend tho inspection.
The committee went over two
routes, one by way of Rattlesnake,
the other by wny of Antelope spring.
The latter road, which is on much
firmer soil than is most of tho former
route, was found to be only two miles
longer than the road first followed.
Considering only tho problem of link
ing the two grcnt nationnl parks at
lowest possible cost, tho Antelope
road has many advantages over the
Short Creek or Rattlesnake route.
But the Short Creek way would serve
moro communities. In summing up
their conclusions, tho committee is of
the opinion that it lies entirely with
the Short Creek farmers to say
whether they will furnish right-of
way for tho road through their farms
for tho sake of enjoying its uso, or
will they let it bo built around by
way of Antelope, whero there arc no
farms in tho way?

Tho Salt Lako Scout Caravan camo H
and has gone. More than ,two hun- ' H
drcd strong, the invaders from tho H
metropolis swept into our city Tucs- H
day evening, took tho mayor prisoner, H
dictated terms to tho city council, H
requisitioned ham sandwiches, baked H
beans, cheese, pickles and ice cream 'H
ad lib, and settled down to n joyous H
celebration of their victory. H
Their camp was pitched on tho B. H
A. C. campus, where tho Relief So- H
ciety, assisted by tho beekeepers of H
tho Cedar swarms of Beehive girls ' H
and tho local scouts, had spread a H
meal for tho visitors. The army was H
hungry. Thoy had cooked their own H
breakfast that morning. Whether or H
not they had eaten what thoy cooked, H
thoy did not say. hen, too, they H
had had a long, hard, utterly delight- H
ful day. It was considered good mill- H
tary strategy for the scout who had H
finished his plateful of foddor to hide H
tho plate, brush tho crumbs off his H
more or less Bunbumt chin and line up H
with a brand new appctito for another H
helping. ,H
It did the motherly Relief Society
ladies' hearts good to note the pop- .'H
ularity of their eatables. ' For, M
womanliko, they laid it all to tho t
superior cooking. So everybody was jH
happy, for the visitors were as wel- IH
come as they were hungry and tired. M
The music furnished by tho local band " "
was no little Jjclp toward the pleasure
Of tho occasion. I M
Tho admirable behavior of the boys, ,M
their prompt, soldierlike response to M
bugle calls, nnd general air of cour- ,M
tcsy and fellowship won tho unboun- M
ded praise of all who met and mingled H
with thorn. Perhaps tho two ends of M
the stnto of Utah have never before M
been so closo together in spirit and M
understanding as they were at that fl
hour. The boy scouts of Salt Lake- .H
nro an honor to their organization and fl
to their city, and it was a privilege - M
and a pleasure to meet them nnd cheer !M
them on their way. Not a little ad- H
miration is due them for the game,- M
ncss with which they endured the un- M
accustomed hardships of camp life. M
After tho moal a short program H
was given. Mnyor Swapp spoko M
briefly on behalf of Cedar and there M
were talks by Scout Leaders Taylor, M
Hammond, nnd Mathews, and by tho '
noted California!), Dr. Georgo Whar- h'M
ton, James, who among many other I'l
things has written what is probably M
the most vivid, truthful and nearly '
adequate description of the Grand -
canyon of the Colorado that has been M
penned, to dnte. M
Probably tho most popular feature H
of tho closing program wan the sing- H
ing of, "There's n Long, Long Trail '
A-Winding", "When the Boys Como
Homo", nnd "Keep tho Homo Fires H
Burning" by a Chorus of tho leaders ' H
of the visiting scouts. H
After the brief program a dnnco H
wns given in honor of tho visitors in. H
tho college building, whero tho young ' H
and thoso who felt young enjoyed tho H
evening together. H
Through tho courtesy of the College "H
organization, tho B. A, C. lavatories H
wore at the disposal of the camp and , H
nil possible was done for the comfort jH
and convenience of tho guests. ' H
Next morning the caravan lined up H
on Main street, where a movjng pic- H
ture was taken of the departuro from H
town. Hundreds of interested specta- t
tors watched the long lino get undor ' H
way for its run into Zion National H
Park. - - ' ''
Tho advance guard of tho Scout"
caravan was composed mainly of rep- . H
resentntives of tho Salt Lako dailies. 1H
Herb Weston was tho Herald writer,
Donnld McKay represented tho Trib- ,H
unc, Hnrold H. Jensen tho Deserelj f
News, and Art Winton tho Telegram. '
