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

much objection to automobiles kill

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
“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. Intellectually straight: This is
an extremely difficult process .and
involves an honest discipline of cur

LARGE CROWD IN ATTENDANCE ON OPEN
ING DAYI MANY UUILL ATTEND THIS YEAR
The Tempe Beach swimming pool, the largest arti
ficial pool in the entire state, was opened to the public
on last Sunday, according to E. 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
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 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.

machine agent, ranked first in col
lections in Arizona and third in the
central district, composed of Mon
tana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New
Mexico, Arizona and western Texas,
according to a recent announcement
of the company. He also ranks high
in sales for the sewing machine. This
is quite an honor, especially so since
Mr. Beaty has only been with that
company for a short time.
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
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.
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. About SIO,OOO has
been invested, and it is expected that
the association will be able to pay
off all indebtedness this year and the
pool be turned over to the city.
