Editorial Parly Will Go
Over Dead Indian Road
Tl National Editorial Assocla- which lias won the name of "the
tlon, which will visit Crater I-ake on prettiest mountain lake of them all,"
August 11th and J2th, will gojmany valley p ople have taken up
either to or from Crater Lake, ovrjtho summer homesites allowed by
the A.ihfthid-Crater Lake road, the forest reserve people and have
which 1h known as the Dead Indlaii j Inillt and are building mmmer

of earn nccensary to transport tho
.party of 20 or more edlto.s, the
"executive committee In charge of the
Southern Oregon entertainment have! nearly 10,060 feet Into the air. Tho
decided to spilt . the party In half. Toad winds along the shores of this
pending one flvlslon to tho Laklako for miles. The lake has a fine
over tit? Rogafi lUvter road from! beach and 1a ideal for bdthlng and
Medford and the other division over boating. Rood fishing Is also found
the D;ad Indian road from Ashland j there.
Keen division will return over the
other route than which they travers
ed ruing up. This will enable the
party to be taken to and from the
lake In half the time necessary un-
djr the cldj plan of sending and
bringing homo over the Rogue Hir
er road and will enable the entire
party to see Klamath Lake, Lake of
tha. Woods, and the beautiful Dead
Indian country. ,
v The decision to use the Dead In
dian road Is one of the biggest
strokes of Suck that has como Ash
land's way for many moons. This
road, the shortest and most beauti
ful scenic route to Crater Lake, ban
been practically Ignored while all
work and advertising has been con
centrated on the Klamath and Med
ford gateways. A number of Ash
landers who have long realized the
value of this road as a tourist at
traction and eventually as a market
route to open up tbe Fort Klamatn
country to Ashland, have been work
Ins for the road for years and thl-i
year Jack True Is In charge of
crew which is building a new road
to the summit and doing other Im
provement work which will make
the trip much easier. The only re
allly rough places are In the. forest
reserve." The fact of the Natlona'
Editorial Association being routed
over the road will give Ashland an
excellent leverage In demanding Im
provement and recognition for their
rood. President Treichlor of the -
Medford Commercial club made the
trip to Crater Lake thru vDead In

practical for the trip. Medford win
