n Dr. Paul B. Wallace and wife and
Mrs. J. J. Cone and Miss Ledbetter are
spending a month on the Pacific coast.
Writing from Hollywood, Cal., about
his Record, Dr. Wallace has this to
say about what he sees:
“We have been having a good trip
so far, spending a week in Los An
geles, visiting the places of interest
about there. Then we went up among
the oranges about Pomona, Redlands
and Riverside.
The people out here have -irrigation
facilities working to perfection, one
scarcely ever seeing any open ditches.
Even most of the reservoirs have ce
mented sides and bottom—so there is
no seepage.
"The ditches are. of concrete or/ce
ment or most generally the cement
pipe lines take their place. There are
miles upon miles of pipe lines all
under ground, in and about Pomona,
Redlands and Riverside. Very little
water is wasted out here and one sel
dom sees a muddy road.
“At the head of each row of trees
an "upright" pipe is seen a few- in
ches to several feet above the ground,
depending upon the height of the res
ervoir or upon the pressure of water
that feeds that particular area. These
connect with underground pipes. On
two or four sides of this upright pipe
are outlets, regulated by metal head
gates. These outlets are but three
inches in diameter and permit but a
small head of water, which to me
seems a very good plan.
"From here we expect to visit San
Diego, Santa Barbara and other points
on the coast. We will remain here un
til after the fleet arrives.
"California is very nice, but Colora
do fills the bill to better perfection."
The long anticipated basketball
game between the North and South
Canon high school teams was played
at the rink Saturday in the presence
of one of the largest crowds that has
assembled there this season to wit
ness such a contest. The final score
was 25 to 21 in favor of the South
Canon organization.
The North Canon team secured but
one field goal during the game, the
other nineteen points being secured I
by free throws from the foul line.
It was apparent from the beginning
that the South Canon boys w r ere not
playing their usual form, due to the
strenuous and exciting game with the
Wheat Ridge team the week before.
Although the ball was at their end of
the field almost continually they
seemed unable to find the basket be
fore a foul was called on one side or
the other.
Much credit is due the contestants
on both sides for their sportsmen like
bearing during the game, a condition
of affairs that won for them the ad
miration of all. The good natured
rivalry between the two schools found
expression in hearty cheers and sing
ing. South Canon had several 1 new
songs and yells for the occasion and
©very boy and girl that the school
could muster was there to urge the
team to victory, if possible.
At a meeting of the village council
In South Canon a few nlghta ago It
waa decided to dedicate next Friday
to the municipal clean-up propoaltlon,
and to that end It has requested the
co-operation of the public. No special
committees were appointed, although
an appeal has been made to the citi
zens to helprthe movement along by
every means in their power. George
B. Kirkland, the town marshal, will
have general supervision of the work
and was instructed by the council to
use his wagon and team for the pur
pose of assisting property owners in
hauling away such rubbish and dirt
as may be piled up in the streets and
alleys for that purpose.
The hope is expressed by those who
are agitating the matter that every
body in South Canon will turn out
next Friday and show their enterprise
and public spirit by taking an active
part in the clean-up campaign.
On the invitation of the board of
education the ministers of the city
addressed the pupils in the public
schools Monday in relation to
civic improvement which is a mani
festation of patriotism in one of its
highest forms.
Rev. J. T. Thomas was assigned to
the Washington school, Rev. Frank
R. Hoilenback to the high school. Rev.
Sherrod to the Lincoln school and
Rev. Sparks to the Jefferson school.
The pupils were everywhere urged to
assist by every means in their power
the clean-up movement inaugurated
by the Civic Improvement league,
and thereby contribute to “the city
beautiful." Great things are expected
next Friday as a result of the clean
up propaganda now being carried on
in this city.

The Republican state and Congres
sional conventions called for April
28 th will select ten delegates to the
national Republican convention which
meets in Chicago in July.
A few weeks ago lists of delegates
were suggested in Denver. These in
cluded one United States senator,
three congressmen, the governor, the
state chairman and some ex-congress
men and ex-governors and several
other prominent office holders.
Since that time a strong sentiment
has grown up over thp state in fa

some in Fremont county.
Among those in Fremont county
who are entitled to the honor of go

Dawson possesses many qualifications
for the honor besides that of not be
ing an office holder or office seeker.
Fremont county will probably ask
that Mr. Dawson be named a delegate
from the second congressional dis
trict convention and the request
should be promptly granted.

Lieutenant Richard D. White, U. 8.
N., stopped off here Sunday afternoon
for a brief visit with his brother, A.
H. White, of the district court, while
en route to Washington. D. C., to re
port to the navy department on the
target practice of Admiral Evans bat
tleship fleet at Magdalena bay. Lieu
tenant White is attached to the bu
reau of navigation at Washington and
is assistant inspector of target prac
tice for the navy department.
On the arrival of the battleship fleet
at Magdalena bay after its 15,000 mile
cruise around South America from
Hampton Roads, Lieutenant White
was ordered to proceed thither and in
spect the target practice of the differ
ent ships and report the same to the
naval* authorities at Washington. In
the course of a conversation with the
Dally Record reporter this morning
Lieutenant White stated that the re
sults achieved by the gunners on the
big ships was more than gratifying
in consideration of the long johrney
from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean
and showed the vessels were
ready for war should a conflict come.
The ships arrived at Magdalena bay
according to Lieutenant White, in
splendid condition and could have
gone into battle the following day, if
need be,‘with every hope of victory.
The efficiency of their engines and
machinery was not in the least Im
paired by the two and p half months
of almost constant steaming and the
personnel of the fleet was such as to
receive the commendation of the of
ficers. It demonstrated the fact that
our naval construction is second to

Before leaving the coast for Wash
ington Lieutenant White proceeded to
San Francisco and Inspected the ships
of the Pathfinder squadron, now an
chored In that harbor awaiting the big
fleet now proceeding northwaid from
Magdalena bay. Lieutenant Whits be
lieves that war Is more than a possi
bility between this country and Ja
pan and expressed the opinion that
hostilities could only be averted by
great tact and diplomacy on the part
of the American people. The Japs, be
thinks have gotten the Idea of univer

The Young Glee Club of the
State Agricultural college at Fort
Collin*, gave a fine program at the
First Presbyterian church Friday eve.
It was the flrat time that an organi
zation of young women from any of
the collegiate Institutions of the state
had ever visited Canon City In the ca
■parity of entertainers, although simi
lar troupes of young men had bee*
here many times.
In slew of the unlqueneee of their
organisation much curiosity was In
dulged In relation to the Agricultural
college girls and a large expectant
audience was present to see and hear
them. They were In no wise a disap
pointment. Indeed, they redeemed the
highest anticipations of the public and
scored a derided triumph In the ren
dition of the program, which was sa
ri ed enough to suit all tastes.
Their work was admirable In every
respect and too much praise esseot be
bestowed upon them for the scry
p. easing and artistic entertainment
which they gase.

cellence it would be invidious to men
