CROWDS CONTINUE VISIT CRATER LAKE
Crowds continue to our into the lodge at Crater Lake, a capacity house pretty near every night. Tonight we had our first dance with a “real peppy orchestra.” Dances every night except Sunday.
Big catches are being made in the lake. About everyone venturing out to fish will come back up the hill with the limit.
Work started in earnest on our new additions to the lodge. Contractor F. P. Salter has a large force of men at work at the excavation which will be finished in about a week. Rock is being hauled for the foundation and walls.
The snow has just about left us, also the mosquitoes so it is a real pleasure at this wonderful resort. The Rim Road is open on the east side for about 25 miles from the lodge and about three miles on the west from the lodge.
ELK’S BAND WILL GIVE CONCERT IN CITY PARK FRIDAY
The good news has been “broadcasted” to Medford and southern Oregon people that the new Elk’s hand will supply the concerts in the city park this year. This band is composed of thirty-five pieces and under the capable direction of the Elk’s band instructor, W. E. Nickerson, formerly active in Seattle musical circles, has developed into one of the valley’s finest musical organizations.
The city council appropriated $400 of their budget last fall for summer concerts. When manager F. E. Wahl of the Elk’s band submitted the council’s figures to band members, the decided that owing to the small appropriation the organization would provide their concerts free. A complete outfit of uniforms for the band is being planned and if the council feels willing to recompense the organization for its summer services, the sum would be spent for that purpose.
The concerts will be held as often as possible during the summer and the public is cordially invited to attend. The cooperation of the parents in keeping children quiet during concerts is earnestly urged by those in charge. Car owners are asked not to run their engines while the band is playing. The people will be advised of each concert through newspaper notices.
