(.UP) —Dreams of an Utopian colony which failed to work In reality were all that was left today of a project In which "workers" and shirkers" shared alike. Too many dreamers and too few actual workers caused failure of the 8,000-acre Tulsa colony between here and Huntsvllle, those nearest the project said. Organized ttircc years ago, the colony attracted world wide attention as men and women from all walks flocked to the hills of northern Arkansas, where shelter in a cave awaited them unll! shacks were built. Turning to the colony as a last resort against hunger and cold the illusionary members of Ihe project, waited upon the work ot their more realistic brotlrers for livelihood. The men cut and hauled wood to Eureka Springs and Huntsvllle for the meager living they eked from the pine-coverei hills.
