CAMPSITE IMPROVEMENT TUESDAY Whaia T<r»n to Be Out with Picks and Shovels Next Tuesday After noon to Prepare Tourist Camp. The Campsite Committee of the ' Comemrcial Club has taken up with I the business men the matter of clos- j ing their stores next Tuesday at no and the whole town getting out and preparing the Tourist Campsite for use. and everyone has readily con sented. The stores and other busineu places will endeavor to take care of I the needs of their customers during the forenoon and then close at 12 and | all will pet on the job at 1 o'clock, j Render* of the Echo are requested to kindly discuss this with their neigh bois. so that everyone may know and j not be inconvenienced by the ar rar cement. The Campsite committee is laying plans for the improvements. The first requisite is to clear the grounds of rubbish and grub out such bushel and stumps found to hinder the use of the grounds as a campsite. Then toilets will be built and suitable con- | crele stoves constructed, water pipes j placed, electric lights installed, etc. It is probable that the grounds will | be platted and stakes placed, allow- | ing certain defined spaces for parking autos and erecting tents, so that the ground may be utilized to the best advantage in order to accommodate the greatest number. The plot of ground is fortunately located on a main thoroughfare, and runs back to the river. It may be en tered from the road at either front corner and will afford plenty of room for at least fifty autos. it is believed. Water from the city system is avail able merely by piping it to any part of the grounds desired. It will be supplied with electric lights from a line which passes at the front. Everyone is asked to brine a lot of tools to the grounds for some may have none. Those who cannot work in the afternoon may come in the morning, for there will be someone there to work with them. FORSYTH RESIGNS. According to the World, there wai much excitement on the streets of Wenatchee. occasioned by Sheriff Forsyth's accident the nipht before. The following two items are taken from Friday's World: Sheriff Forsyth is resigning today. He says: "I have been on the job now for fiftcn months. 1 have tried to do my duty a- a public officer. The ac cident which occurred last night ii the cause of new stories all over the street. A bunch of people of thi. city are like a band of hunery wolves waiting for something to talk about, ■waiting to find some reason to find fault with the sheriff. 1 feel the an noyance is greater than I should be asked to stand and am ready to quit. "My re.-ignation will take effect t'-e first of May. This will enable me to clear up the criminal cases now on hand for the coming term of court. "I do this in fairness to the county a- there is much unfinished business and it is my desire to leave the office in pood shape." Capt. Forsyth expects to lrav^ shortly on a trip to Montana where he has interests that are becoming valuable and will go from there to Ottumwa. lowa, to rWI a brother who has been ill for years, and suffering from a long liege of ,-m^'. diabetes. Friday's sensation on the streets of Wenatchee was the accident «V?!i oc curred shortly before midnipht on the co,n?r of Wenatchep Avenue and First Street, when Sheriff Foisyth'j car lost a rear wheel by co'lidincr with the curb. ■'I was proceeding north on Wenat chae avenue," said Sheriff Forsyth Friday, "and started to turn wen o- First Street. In order to avoid col lidinß with a closed car that was corn ing south on Wenatrhee Avenu?. I speeded up and this cause 1 the wheels to skid on the slippery pave ment. The rear wheel crashed into the curb and I was thrown vio'ent'y atrainst the ste<rintr wheel bre2icintr one of my ribs. I had Dr. Gerhardt fix me up so that I am able to be about." Supt. A. T. button of the I.eavf-n --worth schools left Tuesday night for Spokane to attend a three-days' ses sion of the Inland Empire Teacher-' Association— Wednesday to Friday. The Leavenworth Echo LETTER FROM MR. HICK EL. Mi. \V. Potter Bicke!. former in structor in the Leavenworth schools. writes as follows and the many friends here of Mr. and Mr-. Bicke] will read the letter with much pleas ure: Washington. lowa. Mar. 27,i:<22. The Echo. Leavenworth. Wash. Gentlemen: Enclosed find check for 12.60 to cover year's subscription to the Echo. I I have enjoyed the Echo very much ! this past year and have noticed w I pleasure the wonderful stride- the people of Leavenworth arc making ai to the betterment and development of the city, and sarrooadings, and as I can not be there personally to say, "You"rr do'ng fine, keep the good work up." but those are my senti- ! ments whenever I read the Echo on Tuesday noon when it comes. We have been quite well all winter, outside of slight colds, and until re cently, when Verna developed a case of whooping cough. We arc having very wet weather this iprlng which keeps the roads in very poor condition and iloes not per mit the farmer? to do any work on the land. From all I can learn, we here in the centra] west were harder hit by the great business depression than you people in the apple district. Of course, many farmers brought on Their own hard times by reckless speculation in lowa farm land so that when the bottom fell out they did not have any produce to turn for a hip return and consequently farmers went bankrupt, and many others are on the vertre. With best wishes to all. I am very truly yours. W. FOSTER P.ICKEL. THE GIRL RESERVES.

CHELAN COUNTY, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY. APRIL 7. 1922. SANITARIUM SUBSCRIPTION CAMPAIGN PROPRESSING The stock subscription campaign of the Cascade Sanitarium was coni ! meneeci last Tuesday morning by the ; organizers of the corporation, with I Geo. Hauber. O. S, Sampson an' Frank Hennessey in active charge of 1 the campaign: and a determined ef fort will be made by the committe , and by the different organizations i: I the Wenatchi i Valley within the next few weeks to raise the full quota | necessary to complete the building ■ and equipment at Leave] rtl of j what is expected to be one of the fin est institution.- of its kind west of the Mississippi. Every busbies* ho i organization and individual will be in terviewed and asked to contribute to this worthy cause. Leavenworth is an ideal place for a sanitarium. It.- dear air. ; water, refreshing climate and beauti ful scenery have brought hundreds of people to this vicinity in spite of the almost complete lack of accommoda tions with which it has hitherto been handicapped; and the new institution will undoubtedly bring hundreds of new visitors and new residents, and mean thousands of dollars spent in Leavenworth and this vicinity every year, besides the many a Ivantagei to the citizens of the community in the way of hospital and medical ser vices. It is proposed to build what will eventually be the most modi hospital and sanitarium in the west : and with an institution of this kind. ! situated at the entrance to the most j beautiful natural park in the world, in a sportsman's paradise, at the gateway of the Cascade Mountains. it require! no great stretch of imagi nation to foresee a wonderful future I for the sanitarium and for the city in which it is located. The Cascade Sanitarium is to be long to the citizens of Leavenworth and this community, and its plan of organization has been very carefully | worked out with this object in view, j It has a capital stock of ?100.000, of j which $99,000 is preferred stock and ; •■f 1,000 common stock. The common j stock is the voting stock of the cor- | poration, and is divided into 100 share? of the par value of $10.00 per .-hare, and is to be so distributed that no person can own more than five shares of the common flock, the own ership to be limited to persons actual ly residing in the immediate commun ity. The following is quoted from the by-laws of the corporation: "Not more than five shares of the common stock of thi- corpor ation shall be held by any one person. All common Btock shall lie endorsed in blank by the own er thereof, and deposited in es crow in such bank as the Board of Trustees may designate: and in case any owner of common stock should die or remove from the County of Chelan or should become incapable of activ, . par ticipating in the management of the corporation, the corporation shall have the right, through it board of trustees, to purchase said stock at it- par value, and may sell the same to guch other person a.- may be designated by the Board of Trustees." Common stock i- not entitled interest, dividends or profits. The preferred sutck i.- entitled to I many benefits not given to • it^ of the common :-;.".-k. Holderi the preferred stock are entitled to turn in to the corporation twenty-five per cent of their stock in payment for any hospital services rendered them, and the- stork will be accepted at its par value: but the corporation re serve.- the right to limit the amount of stock to be turned in to the cor poration in payment for hospital sen-ices during any one year to 1?2. --ilOO.OO; this being for the purpose of protecting the corporation. In addi tion to this, the Board of Trustees has the right to pay interest at a rate not to exceed six per rent on the prefer red stock as one of the expenses of operation of the institution, and also has the right to pay off. from the earning! of the institution, the prin cipal of the preferred stock as fast as the corporation is able to do so. The active management of the cor poration is vested in a board of six trustees elected by the holders of the common stock. The organizers of the corporation are the present trustees, but new trustees will be elected on the first day of June this year. The Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, and the May or of the City of Leavenworth are ex-officio trustee? of the corporation. The corporation is organized a? a charitable institution, and as such is exempt from the payment of taxes and other expenses which would be charged to ordinary corporations; but in order to secure these benefits it was necessary to make those officials members of the board of trustees with the sime powers as the other members. Whenever the corporation wishes to purchase or sell real estate it is necessary to get the consent of a two-thirds vote of all the stock of the corporation represented at a special meeting called for that purpose, in cluding the preferred stock; and the two-thirds vote must comprise at least a majority of all the stock of the corporation. The Cascade Sanitarium was or ganized under the auspices of the Commercial Club of the City of Leav enworth. and it has the loyal support of every organization in the com munity. It will fill a long felt need in Leavenworth; but in order to ac complish its object it must have the financial and moral support of every citizen. Each person should sub scribe for as much stock as he can afford to buy. and induce his friends and neighbors to do likewise: inves tigate, boost and advertise, and if this is done the success of the enter prise is assured. Remember that 1/eavenworth has yet to fail in any thing it has ever undertaken. It is not necessary that each sub scription be paid in cash, and ar rangements have been made for de ferred payments in case the subscrib er desires an arrangement of this kind. As it is intended to build and complete the institution this summer, however, it is necessary that a sub stantial portion of each subscription be paid when it is made. Are you doing your bit to make the city beautiful? This is clean-up time. Paul Hood, Jr.. left Sunday mom ing for Anacortes, accompanied by hi? uncle.

About forty were present at the luncheon Friday and the interest in matters did not lap. Me*dames Ar chie Hetherington, C. S. Taylor. R. W. Dolsen. R. J. Smith, F. A. Constable and W. M. Brender served and Mrs. Frank Hennessey collected the cash. ; The luncheon was splendid and the vote of thanks hearty. A surprise was sprung by Secre j tar}' Constable, who. in reading the financial statement, announced that | some sixty odd dollars had been turn ed into the club treasury from the former Service Club and other sourc i es. A letter nu read from Congress : man Webster in which he gave it as his conclusion that the work being done to secure the opening of the Stevens Pass would bear fruit and that the pass would be opened. Other opinions bore out this conclusion. Mr. Melntosh spoke on the matter of securing the gravel on the road from Peshastin, .>outh of the river, and thought that we should use such influence as we may have to get the work completed early, while the ground is mellow so that it would be come smooth and serviceable for this season's use. The matter of supporting Mrs. Bry an in her work to put on a concert April 19 was broached and a motion passede encouraging the undertaking. Mr. Little of Wenatchee. former president of the Wenatchee Commer cial Club, was present and when called upon spoke on civic matters, encouraging Leavenworth people to work unitedly and great results would be realized. SPRING. By Charley L. Gant The gay and festive bullfrog, he Begins to croak his song, He doesn't make much harmony, But warbles good and strong; His voice sounds like a candidate. Not yet a nominee. Of what he is he does not prate. But what he wants to be. The meek and lowly candidate For big. fat. office yearns. He loves his county and his state. His flivver oil he burns. He thinks it proper now to don His very finest coat. He is the biggest whistle on The very smallest boat. The Flapper Girl is coming out. In that sweet rig .-he loves. She has no Furbelows to flout. But lots of Furaboves. The lady politician, she Has joined the big machine. And so the wily grafter, he Is grazing pastures gree:i. From all the indications, I. Can very plainly see. The naked spring is coming nigh. The summer soon will be. And from the candidates and frog.-. And flappers on the wing. We read in Nature's catalogs. About the coming spring. BANDMASTER McDANIEI GIVES OPINION. In view of the fact that Wenatchee is inviting bands to come to that city for the Blossom Festival May 5 and 6 and expects six or eight bands and is offering only one prize of $100 for the best band, Mr. McDaniel says that there is little probability of them se curing many bands. No band can be taken there and play two days with out losing at least $100 even if win the prize. Leaven worth, he says, has a good little ban !, playing some good pvisic. but he will not consider for a mo ment taking it down there under the conditions as he understand? [Win, out losing at least $100 even if the prize is won. STOCKMEN'S ASSN. ORGANIZED.

A letter was -received last week by the Echo from F. A. Losekamp. | too late for publishing, making sug gestions which may be of value in drawing attention and summer travel to this section. Mr. Losekamp says: Get photos of the beautiful scenery and send to railway of ficials. These will be sent to all stations and large hotels. Also get photos of your best build ings Masonic hall. Firemen's hall, school buildings, etc.. and have people write editorials or articles on different subjects, concerning Leavenworth. Mr. Losekamp generously offer.- to give $5.00 every month and suggests that $20.00 per month be raised and kept posted for monthly prizes, and continues: And you will Ik- surprir- ed what knowledge and what splendid views the puhlic will give you. It will be interesting and at the name time boost the city. Take for instance, the sub ject: "Why Leavenworth will develop into a hirjre summer re sort."
