Tho funeral of the lato Mrs. Louisa WoIfoI of Florida location was held this afternoon, with services at tho Calumet needs a Country club. This Is tho substance of a statement made today by a wolf known business man, in calling attention to tho total absence in Calumet of any place where the res idents might meet informally to spend a quiet day, play gvdf, forget the wor ries and troubles of town life and en Joy a quiet outing. That such a need is felt by tho residents of tho com munity nt largo, Is shown by the fact that hundreds may be seen leaving Calumet In every direction almost ev ery Sunday during the summer season, also on week days, in search of a placu where they may bo close to nature. "Few cities tho size of Calumet, whether In mining camps or elsewhere, have no club of this kind," ho contin ued. "And no place In the country of fers better facilities than Calumet There are now between thirty and for ty residents of Calumet who play golf occasionally, and who would play much more frequently-If- proper ., grpunds should be secured, also many others, especially ladi s, wln would enjoy golf. If suitable grounds were availa ble. Gulf is not tho only game that could bo Indulged In, and there would be no dilnculty in providing amuse ment for everyone. A Country club would be Just as popular in the win ter as tho summer, with tho opportun ities for snow shoeing and skiing and would fill a hmg felt want in the com munlty." According to the plan suggested, from f.O to 100 acres of good land should by secured, at some point where permanent rights were possible ami near the tracks of the Houghton Coun ty Traction company. The more land avallab'o ,the larger the park that could be acquired.
