State Sees Need of Conservation Work KEEPfllU- TOUI! TRADE One of Most Important of the North Country, Declares Rhinelander Speaker. TALKS ON LAND 0' LAKES The tourist and resort Industry one of the most Important that North, ern Wisconsin and the Upper Pen- insula of Michigan have to consid- er, declared C. L. Smith, Rhinelander, vice president of the Land o' Lakes association, in addressing persons at- tending the noon luncheon at the St. James yesterday. The luncheon was given by the Upper Peninsula Devel- opment bureau In compliment to of- ficers and directors of civic organiza- tions of the county. He told that in 1922, the high- way department checked forelgjn cars coming Into Wisconsin and that in 1924 it had grown to passing the million mark last year. The high- way department found that the av- erage automobile carried three persons and the average car remained ten days in the stay, averaging an expen- of J10 a day. Spent 100 Millions. "More than a million cars meant expenditure, roughly speaking, of he said, "that wouldn't be spent If we didn't have the resort region. Figures may lie, but It down to and we still have an enormous industry that was absolutely neglected." Fifteen per cent of the tourists vls- itintr Wisconsin In 1924 came to oc- cupy their own cottages, he said, and last year it was 20 per cent. They bought and built unon wild, cut over and non-taxable land, much of it, transferring it into valuable property. He aftvised that organizations pro- moting the resort regions should ad- vertise truthfully, give the visitors good roads to travel over, good hotels and "treat them as human beings." "I believe the tourist business la just 1st Its he said, concluding with the urge that an Immense cam- paign of advertising be carried on to promote the lakes regions. Opportunities. There are few sections in the United States Ithat affor.1 the opportunities for development that the Upper Pen- insula does, said C. A. Cairns, pas- senger traffic manager of the Chica- go North Western railroad, another speaker at the noon-day luncheon. he said, "I believe you will agree with me, has made this country what it Is most progressive and prosperous In the world. Without means of free com- munication, this country would be an undeveloped wilderness, so when we sift things to the bottom, transporta- tion occupies a Important and necessary part in this national pros- perity of ours." He discussed the problems now con- fronting the railroads and declared the CONTROVERSY MAY BE CARRIEDJNTO COURT Trouble Over Right of Mayor to Make Appointments. Lansing, Mich., June mun- icipal controversy that has been wag- ng for weeks over the right of Mayor Alfred Doughty to make appointments without -the, consent of the city coun- cil, may be carried Into the courts, it was intimated Friday. Some time ago the mayor dropped Otto Zelgler and A. D. Wllklns as mem- bers of the city board of electric light and water commissioners and appointed Christian Herrman and Ar- thur Morse to their placea. The coun- cil refused, to confirm the appoint- ments. Following a ruling by city attorney, however, that confirma- tion by the council is unnecessary, the new appointees were sworn In, and are aervlng on the board. It is the claim of friends of tho deposed mem- bers that the charter requires approv- al of appointments by the council.

The work by -the newly organized Gogebic County Advancement associ- ation was toM by C. B Gunderson, county agricultural in address- ing the noon meeting. "Important as Is the work of cre- ating a strong for adver- tising the attractions we now have to offer, of far greater Importance, be- lieves the Gogebic County Advance- ment association together with tha Upper Peninsula-' Development Bur- eau, is creating a strong sentiment which will ultimately, and soon, end in definite action In the conservation and preservation of the beauties of our forests, lakes, virgin tim- ber Lned highways, or we shall soon be In the position a lanje portion of the Lower Peninsula finds treeless, barren sands, flshless streams and lakes." Mr. Gunderson added that "already boards of supervisors In the Upper Peninsula are seeing the wisdom of securing lands of standing timber a- long our highways. Should we let another fen years roll by without def- inite- action in this regaid, who knows but that we may be disregarding one of our greatest assets? We are all cognizant of the fact that much of our land is not suited for agriculture, and armistice offered Wright, architect, by Frank Lloyd to his estrona-ed wife, Miriam Noel, here In an effort a vain one so far to gain to his Taliesin estate. Resting here from the rigors' of her two futile assaults on the gates of Wrlgth'e estate, Mrs. Wright has been appraised b y County Prosecuftv Boacdman that her husband will give her a month for her support if she will abandon efforts to obtain. shelter under his roof. And although the woman nag said she would not accept a settlement, she is considering going back to Mndinon and taking an apartment, she indicated after ahe had received definite' news of .her husband's offer. Mrs. Wright plans to sue in Illi- nois, for a separate maintenance, she said, whether or not she 'orces her entrance to Wright's home by court procedure. The architect, explaining his offer to provide for the wife who thwarted hla effort to divorce her recently, said he would support her, but that "there lj no place for her In my homo where her real contribution has oecn only constructive sabotage for ten years."
