(Babe) Miller. Gene Lavelle" will be life guard this year. Ooening of the pool has been eagerly awaited by many Casperites. Members of the V. F. W. post have been active in repainting the pool and otherwise preparing it for summer use. "Prior to 1929. there were no swimming facilities in Casper, except the Platte river or the old gravel pits, northeast of the city." Harold Graham, treasurer of the Powder River Veterans club, recalled recently In reviewing the history of the plunge. "Both are extremely dangerous places to swim on account of the varying temperatures of the water and the added danger of quicksand. A toll of human lives was exacted each year as a result of these conditions, and it was this very thing which prompted the local post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars to adopt the idea of building a swimming pool, which would be free to the public and keep swimmers away from dangerous places. "Construction work was started on the pool in 1929 by members of the post. Substantial additions were made each year thereafter until 1934 when it was comoleted as a CWA project. The idea of building such-a plunge was conceived by the late Ira Brannan, an employe at the city hall and a member of tha V. F. W. Brannan spent most of his spare time working cn the proj ect after it had been undertaken by the post. He died In January, 1930. "During the years the pool has been m operation, it has had a wice patronage. Youngsters and adults, from Casper and other com munities, pass many happy hours daily, out in the sunshine and fresh air, indulging in the sport of swimming and diving. The water is changed often and kept germ-free x22V f EE H0W MUCH MORE f DISHES COME SFARKUNQpV U I SUDS THE NEW RINS0 J ClEAN-WITHOUT A TRACE 7- A ?!
