From the pages of the Crescent City American, May 1931.
At the meeting of the Crescent City Chamber of Commerce on Monday, L. G. Westfall, secretary of the Chamber, read a telegraph from Assemblyman R. F. Fisher stating that the bill to close the Klamath River to commercial fishing had been defeated.
The information came as good news to the people of the Klamath and to the people of the county in general.
The Crescent City Chamber has been strongly behind the movement to keep the Klamath open, and it is with a great deal of satisfaction that it learned that its efforts have not been in vain.
The displays put on by various grades in the Crescent-Elk school district at the grammar school last Friday evening were real works of art. Each grade had its display of the work done by the pupils, and it would be hard indeed to tell just which work was the best.
The displays showed real effort on the part of the teachers and their pupils and those who missed seeing it missed a real treat.
Reverend George H. Proctor, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church of this city, has announced that Blossom and Darlene Fairchild, the two talented little maidens from Eureka who have astounded the entire country with their musical ability, will be in Crescent City on May 17 to give an entertainment at the Presbyterian Church.
These little musical wonders have gained nationwide publicity for themselves with their talent as musicians and have appeared a number of times in the Bay region before large audiences.
Miss Blossom Fairchild is but 7 years old, while her sister Darlene is but 3. Miss Blossom was a member of the Baby Orchestra at Eureka and is considered a phenomenal wonder, musically.
The public is invited to hear these tiny tots and there is no admission charge, although offerings will be accepted to help defray the costs.
Golf awards for Jamieson and Helesor
Voyle Jamieson and L. Helesor figured in the golf tournament at Gasquet on Sunday to such an extent that they carried away the day’s prize awards. Each was awarded his selection of any sweater stocked in Ira Beam’s store.
Jamieson, who won first, had a total score of 90 for the 18 holes, but his 22 handicap lowered his net score to 68. Helesor took second with a total score of 113 for the eighteen holes, but netted a total of 86 after his handicap of 27 strokes had been deducted.
Thunen talks on astronomy
C.A. Thunen, professor of chemistry at Del Norte High School, was a visitor at Kiwanis on Wednesday and made a most interesting talk to the members on astronomy.
Prof. Thunen told the members of the relative position of various planets to the sun, and as to the substance each planet is composed of, the velocity of the rotation of each and the distance they are from Earth.
The talk was a most enjoyable one and held the interest of each one present. Dr. Francis M. Stump was chairman of the day. The attendance prize was won by Fred W. Endert.
