Plans for this were not definitely an nounced at the time of going to press. o Many Will Spend Vaca tions in North Arizona The hot summer months are only a few weeks away and much discus sion of where to spend a summer vacation is already to be heard. Judging from the stray remarks that drift in, it is safe to say that north ern Arizona will draw more visitors than in any previous season. The cooling breezes that float through the pine-covered hills of that region holds an allurement that is sure to attract. This is not the only attraction, however, as it is without doubt the greatest rendezvous for the true sportsman to be found east of the Rocky mountains today. T % The fishing season will open June 1 and in the vicinity of Springer ville there are said to be 400 miles of trout streams that rank second to none in the United States. Sprin gerville is the capital of that section and will no doubt come in for a full share of the summer vacationists. Good accommodations are to be had at Springerville and the vacationists can truly say after a trip to that section that it is, indeed, the place “Where the God of Nature Is Still Smiling.” o— * Maybe there would not be so much objection to automobiles kill ing people if they would be more discriminating in their selections. % s =ARIZONA STATE MINER COLLEGE NOTES Baseball Games With Flagstaff The T. S. T* C. baseball team is playing the Flagstaff team on the home diamond Thursday and Friday of this week for the informal confer ence championship. “Pollyanna” Given Thursday Night “Pollyanna,” the freshman class play, given in the college auditorium Thursday evening, met with much ap proval.

Dr. Brooks Addresses Assembly “Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he has learned,” stated Dr. Brooks of Po mona college in his talk before the college assembly Friday, April 22. “Education is the capacity to use what we have learned,” he con tinued. “Democracy has given America a new idealism in education,” believes Dr. Brooks. “No civilization can be secure unless it discovers the moral foundation. There is an established law which can not be broken in the physical world, which can not be changed. We must discover what it is. No man ever lived who succeed ed in breaking the moral law. He broke himself against it,” earnestly remarked Dr. Brooks. “Freedom demands responsibility or else it becomes bondage once more,” said Dr. Brooks, when speak ing of the modern trend to be free. “Any State or Nation must rest upon freedom. Turn aside from Plato, if you will, substitute another ideal ism, but justify your freedom with sound thinking. Freedom comes thru discipline to be and to do your very best,” he added. Dr. Brooks believes that to be sta ble, any civilization must rest on personality. In four generalities he summed up the type of person who can make a new civilization: 1.

P. Carr, president of the Tempe Beach association. A large crowd was in attend ance on the opening day, and, if one is to judge from the enthusiasm shown the first ddy, this will be a big year for this popular swimming pool. 100,000 Will Visit the Pool More than 66,000 persons went to the beach last year, half of this number purchasing bathing tickets, and it is estimated that 100,000 or more Will visit it this year, with at least half of that number going into the pool. Many Improvements This Year Several hundreds of dollars have been spent this year in renovating the pool and constructing new build ings. TThe entire pool has been painted and put in first-class shape. A new building for checking clothing and valuables and for a commissary will be completed by May 6. The commissary is to be installed for the convenience of the bathers and fami lies spending the day at the pool. Attendants Employed Attendants have been employed to care for children using the pool and mothers not worry about their youngstCTs if they are there. This is the only pool in the State where the American Red Cross first aid in structors conduct classes and this is one of the reasons for its great pop ularity over Arizona. Water Changed Twice Weekly The water is changed and the pool thoroughly scrubbed and disinfected twice a week. Fresh water is then pumped into the pool every day and every precaution is taken to make the pool sanitary.

Small Admission Charged The nominal sum of 15c for adults and 10c for children is charged for admission to the pool. This is thought to be the lowest charge in the State, the gate admission prices alone to the city parks being more than is charged for swimming in the pool here. Official Contests Staged The Tempe Civic club, because of its membership in the American Ath letic union, is the only organization in the State, with the exception of the university, that can stage swim ming matches under rules assuring the contestants that any records will be given full credit all over the Na tion and world. Several contests under the auspices of the club are given each year. Non-Profit Organization The pool is operated by the Tempe Beach association and is a non-profit organization. The ground for the pool was purchased by the city, the citizens taking stock in the associa tion for the amount necessary for its construction, with the understand ing that as soon as the pool made the money and paid back their in vestment it was then to be turned over to the city for a municipal swimming pool.
