From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, April 1959.
Guilford Smith, motel operator, is accustomed to having couples remove towels and other small items as souvenirs, but what happened recently was the last straw.
He told the police that he had rented a room to a couple. At 2 a.m., he noticed that all the lights were on and went to investigate and when there was no answer, he pushed open the door. The couple had removed not only the towels, but also the bed, springs, mattress, television set, table and chairs and everything else movable except the light bulbs.

Lifesaving patrol due in 1959
A U.S. Coast Guard patrol boat and crew will again be stationed at the mouth of the treacherous Klamath River here during the summer months, it was announced this week by Roy Rook, president of the Klamath Chamber of Commerce.
The Coast Guard lifesaving crew will maintain a watchful eye for unwary boat operators who venture into the rolling surf at the mouth of the river.
The Klamath Chamber is directly responsible for the Coast Guard patrol on the river there, Rook said, “and we feel that this measure has been our most successful project.”
