They left : Fairbanks : In 'the banks Chamber of Commerce, bu,si- j Brill car. ness houses.and individuals inquiring about mining, farming and ether possibilities in this area, but celdom one filled with enthusiasm and practical suggestions for publicizing the country. A letter,,of the last-named type came to the Alaska-Miner in the last mall from Mrs. Louise, of Detroit, Michigan. She and her husband have been thinking of coming to Alaska. They wrote to Pair- banks for information, and on receiving a number of replies and -Cmuch data on the country, iWehner replied as follows: Mrs. "I want to explain right now that I did not realize that you have so jnany requests for information about Alaska, I just supposed that no one down here was really interested in the country, except as a possibility of getting rich quick by discovering gold. That phase of moving to Alaska does not particularly interest us. What we are interested in is the fact that the Tanana Valley is so rich in soil and we are more Interested in fanning than gold prospecting or mining. Midnight Sun Idea "Now here is what occurred to me when I read your editorial. By a moderate amount of judicious advertising — placed where and when it would do the most good your Midnight Sun 'Festival could be built up to a very profitable thing. Of course, you have to offer inducements to the tourists. For example, people here in the United States are a nation of swimmers. The majority of them when they go on a vacation want to go somewhere they can swim, lounge around, play golf, tennis and other games. They also like good food and good service. , Members of 'the extra gang 'who' will work-on the section were: John E. Padzen, Roy G. Sariford, : Emest N.'Wolff, Ambrose T 1 . Barter,-Craige H.

( Burial Ground Planned 1,400 Years Alidad CHICAGO, Aug. 2—Providing a burial ground for one's ramlly 1,400 years into the future is carrying caution to an extreme, Judge Joseph Burke decided here.

Another day, some years before the small boat business, which, by the way, ended when he reached Cordova, 390 miles from Kodiak, in 19 hours. Dr. Council was glimpsed again near Uganik hunting the famed "Brown Bombers"— Kodiak brown bear—with a bow and arrows. He got his bear, of course. But several husky fishermen tried to-emulate his prowess with the bow and the best they could do was to pull her back about half way, which was just about that much too short. . In his younger days he was one of the Territory's crack rifle-shots and without a doubt he must be as skillful today as then. Baseball -was another game in which he excelled, but when attending Harvard he was one of the college's outstanding linemen. When not fishing' and hunting, :golf is the sport. Dr. Council has become-expert in these'later years, he being one of the few in Alaska who -.are in national record books credited with a bole-to-one. .
