Circulation Over 21,000 i supports plan for picnic site dear editor i think it is a swell idea to make Shoop s Golf course into a picnic grounds. Racine has very few spots near enough for a picnic grounds. Shoop s would be in walking distance for us unfortunate people without cars.

Congratulations to the Racine Eoy scout drum and Bugle corps the Brahms choral club and the midwestern male chorus.

I think the citizens of Racine should be very proud of the Fine Bunch of boys which make up the boy scout drum corps and also All other participants. These groups can be and should be very proud and feel that the Many hours of work were not Only for their Benefit but also for the City s. I also feel that the Jour Nal times should be Given credit for showing such interest in its City and also for sending these groups Down to Chicago. I was unable to attend but i sure would have liked to have been there to cheer the Racine groups on and i feel that it would be an Honor doing it. I want to congratulate these three groups and also the other groups. F. S., Yout St / another Appeal for swimming Pool dear editor in last sunday s bulletin c. Z. P., Douglas ave., considered a swimming Pool too expensive. I have heard Many people talking about a 5 cent fee to swim in this j Pool xxx hich would pay for the Upkeep and in a few years pay for the Pool itself. They also talked about Racine to Lake frontage and beaches but Many mothers Are willing to pay a Nickel and know that their children Are in clean water which is Safe from an undertow. Many times during the summer vacation the water in Lake Michigan is pronounced in i fit for swimming. I think that1 Alderman Duffy s idea is very i Good having pools in different i Parks located in different sections of the City. It would give each j Section a Chance to swim in clean water and also save a Long walk. J Many mothers Don t like to walk Down to the Beach with the younger children and if there were pools they could go themselves. F.

Patch. 76-year-old resident who was widely known through this Section of the state for his eccentricities. The casket built under Patch s personal supervision served As a Couch and he appeared to enjoy reclining on it while entertaining his friends. But the construction of the Couch had not been the Only preparation Patch had made for his death. left a slip of paper with District attorney Dwight n. Dudo of nearby Lowville who had lived with him for several years while studying at Croghan outlining specific instructions for the last rites. Wanted Quick burial. First Patch wanted to be buried As soon As possible after death. wanted no Clergyman nor any ritualistic service. And last but not least Patch wanted to be lowered into the Earth in the coffin which had become scratched already from Long usage. When Patch died recently in the Lowville Hospital of heart disease. By Nea service i Gibraltar the mighty atom which serves As a Kingpin to hold together the links of great Britain s far Flung Empire is squeaking and groaning under the Strain of the Spanish rebellion. Directly in the Center of the violent Cross currents set up by the rebellion itself and by imperialistic Powers intentionally or accidentally involved is Gibraltar a great Gray Rock which commands the Straits connecting the Atlantic Ocean with the Mediterranean sea.

The Straits of Gibraltar separate Spain from its african Colony Spanish Morocco where the Revo none of these skirmishes brought the International incident eternally feared by statesmen As the starting Point of a general War. Then one Day a Spanish rebel gunner living up to the Spanish Navy s tradition for poor marksmanship fired a Shell from a ship in the Straits and it burst near the Barracks put olo Field at Gibraltar. Players and spectators were l tightened but none was Hurt. Because there were no casualties and because the Shell obviously was not intended for British territory the incident was overlooked.

Just As every previous economic slump has found new Enterprise ready to take the recovery Lead so does 1936 find vast unexplored markets waiting to be developed. It is a matter of history that As a nation emerges from depression its citizens demand new uses for their augmented incomes.
