Subscription $2.00 a Year
Council Appropriates $350
to Help; New Reservoir
Appropriation of $350 by the city
council Monday evening assures the
opening of the American Legion
swimming tank this Bummer. The
action was taken following the pre
sentation of a petition sponsored by
the Patron-Teacher association and
signed by all the leading fraternal
orders of the city, asking that the
legion boys open the tank and that
, the city give what aid it might see
Agitation for opening the tank
began when the legion boys an
nounced that they would be unable
to open it because of lack of funds
needed to put the tank in condition.
The last two years they have opera
ted It at a loss. The P. T. A. took
up the cause because of the great!
benefit derived by the boys and
girls through use of the tank, and
other organizations immediately
fell in line.
The American Legion Auxiliary
to help sponsor the move gave a
benefit dance at the Elks temple
Friday evening, from which a con
siderable sum was derived. The B.
P. O. E. have promised a $50 dona
tion as soon as the tank Is opened,
to help defray expenses.
A lack of water for filling the
tank was a serious obstacle to its
operation for the last two years.
The legion boys, unable to pay the
regular water rate, were given only
the overflow with which to fill the
tank and at times It was not possi
ble to change It oftener than every
two weeks. It was the sense of
members of various committees
who appeared before the council,
as well as all councilmen who ex
pressed themselves, that the swim
ming tank is so vital to the life of
the community In the summer time,
that, if necessary, a day or so of
irrigation during the dry season
might be foregone In- order that
the tank be filled. To make this
possible the tank may be taken over
as a municipal enterprise, though
management will remain In the
hands of the legionnaires.
To help in the repair work at the
tank, which will include new deck
ing, dressing rooms, rest rooms and
sputum trough, Mayor McCarty
has offered to declare a half holi
day when all the citizens of the city
who will, may turn out and assist.
This will be done as soon as the leg
ion boys are ready to begin opera
The council also accepted the new
reservoir at its Monday meeting,
the work being satisfactory in ev
ery way. Both L. R. Stockman,
engineer in charge, and W. E.
Pruyn, watcrmsater, declared they
were well pleased with It The re
servoir has been full of water for
more than a week with all outlets
closed and no leakage has been dis
covered, the water having gone
down but slightly from evaporation
The next move In the waterworks
Improvement campaign, following
another action of the council, will
be the investigation of springs
above the forks of Willow creek to
find out If a large enough flow can
be obtained to furnish the city an
abundance of water at all seasons.
The council previously set aside a
sum of money for this purpose,
though the work will not be started
until later in the season.
Bills paid at the meeting includ
ed claims by T. O. Denisse and oth
ers for deepening and enlarging the
channel of the creek on Cannon
street, and building the new bridge
at the Intersection of Chase and
Cannon. The bridge of concrete
abutments and wood span is now
completed. The council also order
ed that fills be made at the new
bridge on Elder street to eliminate
a hazard that now exists.
In the matter of appointing a box
ing commission on petition with one
hundred signers presented by C. J.
D. Bauman, sheriff, the council or
dered J. J. Nys, city attorney, to
draft an ordinance covering same

the humorous situationa.
