Scarritt and Martin at Santa Fe Lake in Welda - TELLS OF KANSAS RESORT. Story in Santa Fe...
TELLS OF KANSAS RESORT. Story in Santa Fe Magazine Has to do With Two Ottawans. An interesting account of a day spent at the big Santa Fe lake at Welda is contained in the last issUe of the Santa Fe magazine and was written written by H. M. Scarritt of Ottawa. He and W. H. "Dad" Martin of this city were invited by Superintendent Pay-son Pay-son Pay-son Ripley of the Southern Kansas division to take an outing at the lake. The story tells of a day spent in fishing and of the beauties of the lake and its surroundings, of nature's handiwork handiwork there and of the great display of wild life about the lake. It pays a tribute to "Dad" Martin's sportmans-ship sportmans-ship sportmans-ship and to the hospitality of Mr. Rip ley. In part it says. "All the rights and privileges of this fine body of water probably the largest largest in Kansas have been reserved for and given to the employes of the road exclusively, and they are encouraged to go there with their families and friends and find that recreat'on and pleasure which goes-far goes-far goes-far toward preventing preventing the 'making of Jack a dull boy' which 'all work and no play' is so apt to do."
