Park-to-Park Highway j (Continued from page five! a place to build their fires and also ! to harbor their machines. I was Very agreeably surprised 1 when I came in by the’way of Cody to see the little plan they have there; and it could very well be followed by many other cities along similar : lines. Y.'e have all heard in the cities of the different uses the school houses i are put to during the vacations, for i recreation purposes, but I don’t know of another place where their plan has been carried out. As far as I know Cody is the first to start it. The school house stands in the center of a block with ample ground around it which is open to motorists who come in and wish a camping place. All around the outside edge of this square they can place their machines underneath the trees. The janitor, who is one of the most genial men that you could possibly meet, stands ready to look after every want, pro vides them, for a few cents, with nec essary wood to make their fires. The use of the basement with sani tary facilities is available and in rainy weather they can sleep inside. At one edge runs an irrigation ditch, which supplies them with the best of water. Plans should be made all along the j highways for such camps. In one j case a man has actually given a cer tain portion of his forest to be used for just such a purpose, and it just shows what the possibilities are and what might be developed by making such camps along the Park-to-Park highway. In Denver the city parks 1 provide places where the motorist can be taken care of and those who i wish to travel this way can and i. doesn’t hurt the hotel in any wav cither. It helps the whole garni along the line. I have endeavored in this rather long discussion to tell you what vvt are doing to mah the parks popula: with the motorist, and what we ex pect to do in the future; to place be fore you the position of the park ad ministration with respect to the park to-park Highway; to pledge my sup pi rt and assistance in this enterprise Our work, 1 have pointed out, is still in the parks themslvep, yours in con ni cling the parks; ours to encourag. travel to the parks by publicity and by other methods, yours to thought fully assist the tourist and keep him in the righ frame of mind as he goes frnrri park to park; ours to provid: a> imodatii ns for him in the parks o; ortunities for him to camp out wi.h his own equipment or visit the hi. els and camps, yours to establish ' nv nicipal camping parks with prop ei facilities for the tourists who may i linger in your towns and cities on his I way to parks. < May vi all succeed, and in succeed- I i prov! that the “See America < I-"rst” movement is, from the point t of view of health, recreation and : v, allh the most important propa- I g.mda in the nation today.

F. W. Kurtz the plumber is in the hospital at Billings where he was taken Sunday evening suffering with a serious attack of appendicitis. An operation was perfomed Monday and late that evening a report ’•cached his family to the effect that he was in a very critical condition and another operation would probably have to be performed. Later however, more en couraging renorts were received and an early recovery may be hoped for. Members of the Cody Trading Co., frree have become im> u?d with the idea that they are some lull players, and have issued a challenge that will probably result in an interesting game. The first challenge " < '3u r *d was to the whole town but upon more mature deliberation the Trading Co., boys decided thev were taking in most too much territory, so they have re stricted their challenge to employees of establishments in Cauj Handling the same lines as the Trading Co.

Term of Office e Upon motion made by E. T. Gr >u- fKeen Judges of Value — Do not go by comparative prices. Quality merchandise is not built down to a price, but up to a standard. THE HOUSE OF KUPPENHEIMER in making clothes for men and young men, tolerates no compromise on quality. Every bolt of cloth before acceptance, ■.-..ft***;?* . r must pass the most rigid of tests—many woolens common in trade are rejected as unfit to carry the Kuppenheimer label. The same high standards are in force with every operation through which a Kuppenheimer garment passes. Is it any wonder that a Kuppenheimer Suit gives longer wear and holds its original style and “hang for life? We invite special attention to an as sortment of summer-weight woolens in stylish Flannels and Saxonys in greens, blues and browns at $lB to S3O well it was decided that the vice pres idents and directors elected at this j convention hold office until the next j annual meeting or until their success- ■ ors are elected and qualified. ' Honorary Members The following were upon motion'' made honorary members of the Nat- b ional Park to Park Highway associa- 1 tion and the secretary advised to not-' ify them: i Hon. Stephen T. Mather, Col. Brett. Major Freis, Frank B. Riley of Port land and Phillip S. Bates of Portland. The association expressed its appre ciation by a rising vote to the speak ers. the officers who had worked out the details of the convention, the Yel lowstone Highway association and the hotel management and the Yellow stone park officials who contributed to the success of the occasion. Adjournment was taken as provid ed by the action of the convention. | Cody Backed the Enterprise Cody and her business men have played no small part in the organiza tion of the Park to Park highway. Backed by the leading business men Gus Holm’s and L. L. Newton have sufficient publicity to attract the fed eral government, governors and con gressional delegations of nine states and secure the front pages of the metropolitan press. The organization will require fur ther sacrifice and hard work on the part of those directly interested ip putting Cody to the front and bring ing the auto tourist of the east to the west for his summ»r vacation, accord ing to President Holm’s, and in ac cepting the presid»ncv of the nat : ona! organization he did it believing his home town was supporting him in the movement.

EDITORS MEET MISHAP ON PARK TRIP (Continued from page one) ened at a stalled automobile, in which a party of Oregon tourists were seeing the park. They had stopped to repair a tire. The ani mals shied past the machine and bolt 'ed down the trail, which is quite steep at that point, and rushed past another coach, whose driver had suf ficient presence of mind to keep to the outside of the road to prevent the runaway from dashing over the high cliffs. Presence of mind on the part of A. L. Westernhagen of Fargo, N. D„ who was in the rig ahead, probably saved the occupants of the runaway rig from instant death. He request ed the driver to run his rig to the very edge of the precipice to pre vent the runaway from going over the big cliff. In the rig with him were Mrs. S. E. Peterson of Great Falls, wife of the secretary of the , press association, Henry Marsh of , the C. I. Johnson company of St. , Paul and his wife. The runaway ! rig missed them by scarce an inch To have been touched would have meant a deathly plunge 500 feet be low. PRESBYTERIAN - CHURCH Sunday school 9:45 a. m. Morning worship 11:00 a. m.
