National Library Week Little Time Wasted Over Counfy Sefup Question Man... By Phil Dean Do you think foreign imports are hurting our economy? By Mrs. Frank Lee (Third of a Scries) If I found cxciling Ihe rapidity ·ith which Eureka's early cili- zens established a library here, I was rendered breathless by the ne i dispatch with w'hich Ihe county set up a library. 1 The lale, beloved Annie Zane Murray, president of Ihe Eureka Monday Club (forerunner of the Eureka Women's Club) invited Harriet G. Eddy, who worked out of the State Library as official organizer of county libraries, to Eu- ·eka. Miss Eddy in her book, "County Free Library Organizing --1309 lo 1918"tells of her work in Humboldl. "Humboldl was one of the very easiest counties to organize, but at the same lime one of Ihe most strenuous. Everyone was in favor of the library, but because of its 'solation, every community, every club, every P. T. A., every city council--in fact, every organization insisted on a personal presen- lalion. . . . One evening I 'aclual- ly met with three different organizations in neighboring towns. I chartered an aulo. \venl to Ihe first meeting at 7, Ihe second al and the third at 9. It was ready to adjourn, but waited for me to arrive so it could pass the favoring resolution." Miss Eddy, whose arrival was expected so that a reporter met her at the boat which she had taken from San Francisco -- this was in April 1914--reports that she went into action at Ihe court house immediately. There she had the good luck to see District Attorney Arthur W. Hill immediately, found him a most affable man. He told her that since the supervisors were ui session they might as well OQ in right away. Although she demurred since she usually found it necessary to get the idea over separately lo each supervisor, he insisted. They wenl in, he lold Hie story himself and ended by say- Delta Zefas Top Scholastic Rating At Humboldt State For the third consecutive year members of Humboldt State's Delta Zeta sorority have piled up enough grade points to be named first living group in scholastic standing at HSC. In addition to campus honors, the chapter earned national recognition by being included on the national Delta Zeta scholastic honorary list, "The Lamplighters." At (he sorority's recent. state convention in Sausaiito, the HSC chapter lopped state averages for the second year lo bring home a Irophy for showing Ihe most improved grades ai the highest accumulative average. This latter trophy is a traveling trophy and may be retained permanently by the chapter if they succeed in capturing it for a third 'ear in a row. the Scotia scholastic benefit md The Arcata Okays Water Bond; City Councilmen Selected Arcata's $960,000 water bond proposal was approved by a whopping four to one majority yesterday when voiers went to the polls and, under sunny skies, citizens of five Humboldt communities elected conncilmen. Also electing two councilraen was Crescent City. Despite sunny weather, many volcrs stayed away from polling daces. Typical of smaller communities .was Trinidad, where 73 ol 48 registered voters cast ballots. Arcata, representative of Ihe arger communities, reported thnt 34.5 per cent nf the registered oters went lo the polls. Total vole there was 758 of a possible 2179. This was a decrease from the last election in 1960, when 38 per cenl cast ballots.

All the students have (o do is come in (o Maxon's Music al their convenience and record theii instrument on tape. Entries will be 'udgcd from (heir lape perform ances. ng: "Gcnllemen, it is your dulj lo pass Ihis resolution." Miss Eddv slales s h e could scarcely believe her ears, "for tin's kind of district attorney was sw (o me." " T h e supervisors promised lo pass it the next morning and Mr. Hill was on hand with Ihe resolution of intention. My first Iwo messages lo Ihe Slate Library were dated Monday, April the 13th lhal I had arrived, and Tuesday, April 14lh, that the supervisors had unanimously passed the first resolution and had set. May 12lh for Ihe final resolution." The late Ralph Bull, described by Miss Eddy as "a key person in Ihe counly and the slate," w among those she was to contacl Ihe same day she had to visit country school. This must ha been one ;of her most difficult days. She was up at six but the hotel clerk let the 7 o'clock bus jo without her, she hired a livery rig lo calch the train for Arcala at its first stop, from the train walked two miles lo (he school, ihen another half mile lo see Ihe school clerk, had a ride back lo town with the delivery boy. Finding there was a long wail for the train lo Arcata. she found Dr. Horel was nearby and he could drive her (here. "A few miles ou we had a flal tire." This was re paired only lo have the rear axl get broken in a deep rut in the road. Man on motorcycle overtook them and telephoned for help, train sailed by, rescue car came, nicely slarted when rear wheel came off. (Note, it does not sa if these were Fords--H. M. Hai per was selling them like holcaks about then.) Six people were now in the party; they finally reached Arcata in Ihe second rescue car. Miss Eddy managed to see Ralph Bull; caught a late afternoon train back lo Eureka for an evening meeting. On May 12th, "a big delegation shepherded by District Attorney Hill, attended the supervisors' meeting, just for (he joy of being in en the finish when uio resolution was unanimously adopted." Despile I h e intervention ol World War One, nevertheless, in February of 1915 Miss Ida M. Reagan was appointed county librarian and began her work here on April 6th--not quite a year from he time Miss Eddy first arrived in Humboldt. Miss Eddy's return trip lo Sacra- menlb was not by boat. The firsl train lo run on the newly finished section of (lie Northwestern Pacific -Railroad f r o m Eureka to carried the energetic lady who concludes her remarks: "From Scotia to Longvale we rent by Packard cars which whizzed through Ihe redwoods without enefit of roads. The resulting ride ·as like taking a dizzying trip in small boat on an angry Pacific. _he trails we followed bore no resemblance to the present Redwood Highway, b u t were more beautiful. . . . Humboldt was a county to remember. And there never was another such dislricl altorney. The Arcata $960,000 bond issue received 604 votes for and 154 'otes against. The bonds will be used to improve the present wa- er system by addition of storage 'acllltics necessary for adequate ire protection, replacing of pipe- incs (some dating back to 1934), replacing obsolete facilities, and adding new equipment to the wa- ,cr system. Dalee Dolson, Arcata mayor said "I hate to consider what our problems would have been if Ar- calans had not come forth with .he right answers on this issue. [ would like to lhank Ken Sloddcr md his Citizens Water Committee vho gave (he city such wonder- il support I feel Ihcy have done in outstanding service to our community." In the race for councilman, loth Dolson and George Cooper were rc-elcclcd. The third candidate, Claude Kelly, foiled in his jid (or office. Cooper netted 576 voles, Dolson iOO, and Kelly 3M.

"Then came the discovery ire," said Dr. Pai, "and prehis- oric man found he could do some vork in Ihe cave al nighls. Righl (hen we began to cul down on our hours of sleep. The candle, the oil lamp and the electric light accelerated the process. Then came radio and Ihe movie and television." There is' now so much to do at night (hat we are not as anxious as we used to be to go to sleep..In fact our brains are more active, our bodies belter fed and as we keep pace with modern limes we need and want less and less sleep." Installment Sleeping Dr. Pai did some of his research in air raid shelters during the war and he found that people who had only four or five hours sleep a night for weeks on end during the German bombings of London were no worse for it. 'Most wartime leaders like Sir Winston Churchill also slept only a few hours a night," he said. Dr. Pai says (hat people who "can't get up in the morning" of ought lo Iry an after-lunch siesta or half or three quarters of an hour, such as Churchill takes. "This sleeping by installments Sgt.
