VOLUME L SAGUACHE CRESCENT. SAGUACHE, COLORADO, THURSDAY, MAR. 19, 1931 NUMBER 12 GRACE GRETCHEN SHIPPEY Grace Gretchen Shippey, the Younger daughter of Dr. and Mrs.'O. P. Shippey, whose death occurred at the Porter Sanitarium in Denver on March 8, 1931, was born in Saguache on April 17, 1906. She attended the Public schools of Canon City and Sa- guache and graduated from our High school as valedictorian. Later she attended the University of Colorado, where she majored in education and journalism. She received her A. B. degree from the University in 1928, was a meraber of Delta Delta Delta social Sorority of which she was one time President. and of Theta Sigma Phi journalistic sorority and was l very prominent in campus activities. After graduation, she became in- structor in Civics and American His- tory in the Roosevelt High School in Canon City, which position she held for three years. She was sponsor of the school paper and took a very act- ive part in student and faculty af- fairs a% that school. Funeral services were held from the Olinger Mortuary in Denver on Tues- day, March 10. and were conducted by the Riglt Rev. Irving P. Johnson, Bishop of the Episcopal diocese of! Colorado. Grace was a member of the Epis- COpal church and of the Girls' Friend- ly Society and of the choir of that body in Canon City. She is survived by her parents, i Dr. and Mrs. O. P. Shippey, a sister. Mrs. Helen Gotthelf. a brother, Jack Shippey, and her' grandmother, Mrs. Enma Hall. Mere wordd seem inadequate to eXpress the sadness of those of us Who knew Grace, who felt the charm of her wonderful personality, and whose pleasure it was to feel that spirit of happiness which was hers. Although taken from us in the bloom of YOuth, we can but feel that the Oys of many years were hers be- cause she constantly displayed that enviable haracteristic of getting the most out of every occasion, and by so doing, she gained a wide experience and a sphere of enjoyment which tan Only come to those who have lived a full, happy life. Outstanding in her were those rare faculties of making those about her happy, and of placing the welfare of Others foremost; her loyalty for her friends was but one of the beautiful things of her life and that loyalty Was constant with the years. That Philosophy which was hers, and that Philosophy which gave to her the best of all which this old world affords on all occasions, and which made her feel that life was so much worth While for the good things which it held, is best described by the words of the English poet who said: "Life! we've been long together, Through pleasant and through cloudy Weather; 'Tis hard to part when friends are dear; Perhaps 'twill cost a sigh, a tear; Then steal away, give little warn- ing, Choose thine own time ; Say not good night, but in some brighter clime Bid me good .morning." THE BEST DANCE YET The dance ahic at the ()gden I-Iall Saturday night was better than ever. Ninety couples were on the floor at one time.

Michell. of Colorado Springs, BRIGHTER COLORS More and brighter colors are be- ing put into wearing apparel, house furnishings, and in fact in all manu. factured goods designed for display as well as for actuai use. And why should not color come into its own? The adaptation of color is a science. The reason we used to laugh at too much color in clothing and other things that people used wa,s because few people knew how to get the right combinations, compared with the color expressions of today. Correct use of colors nowadays means more than to match and contrast. We can not tell you why all this advancement in the use of color is so marked other than to say that it has been made a study the same as lighting, architecture and music. A green field of wheat or crn and a green grove of orange or ap- p!e trees against a blue sky loo!:s all right. Nature knows more than a w LOYALTY AND DIVIDENDS Loyalty to the 'community in which one lives not only cost noth- ing in the end, but actually pays big dividends. The dividends that loyalty pays are more than material gain. The logic of boosting for *he home town is sound and self-evident; for suppose no one boosted it. Would there be any town left? There are so many way of in- vesting and so many kinds of bene- ficial results in respect to commun- ity loyalty, that no one method can :be singled out as against any other of the many ways to help. Within the hearts of the majority of persons there is a commendable urge to do something or somebody; and this urge finds daily expression in home life and in all other activi- ties of life. Results of individual efforts alng the lines of com.mnity betterment man how to make this possible. But man is learning. Inharmony or ]a:k are greatly multiplied, becat,.se in of harmony in color combinations af- ! nine cases out of tcr whatever helps fects the eye as discords in music affect the ear. It is well that we are iving attention to the. looks as well as to the sounds of things that con- front us i daily life. WORK STARTED ON WOLF CREEK PASS  Construction on the $200,000 high- way program on Wolf creek pass was started by the Lallier Construction Monday. Twenty men with equipment for the work on four miles of road west f Twin Bridges were sent to the location.

Detours will be constructed on other parts of the road and the pass will be kept open this summer, it is )fanned. The road over Wolf Creek }ass is the shortest to the Mesa Verde listrict from Denver and other cities east of the mountains. KIWANIS HEAR JUDGE PALMER (Alamosa Journal) "The jury is the bulwark of An- "The constitution of Colorado does not provide any qualifications for the juror, but certain statutes do--he must be a male citizen." Judge Palmer then told how jurors were selected from a list of 300 tax payers of the county. There are some people who can claim an exemption from jury duty, according to Judge Palmer. State or county officers may be excused, as may be judges, attor- neys, officials of railroads and Sev- enth Day Adventists on Saturday. "Editors and reporters are also. ex- empt," the judge said, "but whether this is really an exemption or a pro- hibition I don't know." Professional gamblers are disqual- ified from the jury and unless a juror can speak and understand the Eng- lish language he may be disqualified. "Although it may not be entirely pleasant, there is no more important duty than that of serving on a jury," Judge Palmer said in conclusion. any portion of the populatign helps all of it. Loyalty is a virtue.. Moral, en- tal, spiritual and material advance- ment are the rewards df loyalty. Consider the dog to his master, the bee to i.s swarm, the bird to its mate, the wolf t)its pack. The har- mony of Nature bespeaks loyalty, for, after all, loya?ty is the ulacing of oneself in accord with the general scheme of life. Many individuals are foun,l an- xious to join the ranks of booster% but they do no nd the most con- venient fields of work. Many only need to be asked to do something, and when asked they go at the job with a will and , spirit that meets the hopes of the most sanguine. No one need be ashamed to preach the gospel of the booster. If the booster has nothing wor*.h- while to sell he should be nut out of business. But he has something to sell. It is the community i,. which he lives. The job ought real:y t. he easierselling  community to the people who live in it and who are responsible for whatever it becomes.
