About 10 per cent of People Com

, After .' visit among the various
campers at the auto park, a Courier
reporter found that there is general
satisfaction among the tourist who
aye topplBf t tit irmdndn. At
least' 90 per cent of them are well
pleased with the oonvenlences-free
wood, free water and bathing in the
river. However, about 10 per cent
of the number that camp there com
plain about the general condition
of the grounds and say "why don't
the merchant aftd business men of
-Grant Pass awake and get alive and
advertise the place by farnlshin
garbage can, and fireplaces."
But the kicker are hopelessly in
the minority and are mostly from
Washington, Oregon and California.
They would, of coarse, appreciate all
modern convenience of a' big city
and cable service to all points of the
world, as welj as hospital and free
doctor and nurses.
Owing to extensive 'highway con
struction there la miich complaint of
the rough road to the north and
south, but all that will be eliminated
by the fall of 1920. Especially do
the tourists from eastern states en
