“The duties of the project coordinator will include fund-raising efforts and public relations in connection with a cultural arts-community center SCACA plans to build on the Western Slope of El Dorado County,” the statement said …

Smythe said the Missouri Flat and Green Valley roads site is still under consideration by the organization, “but the search for other suitable property will continue.”

Smythe added, “We are entering a very critical time in our quest for a cultural art-community center, and it is for this reason that we decided to hire a project coordinator who has the necessary expertise to help develop the project.”

Fallen Leaf Lake Water Use For Tahoe Advised by Edson

El Dorado County supervisors have accepted a report from Mark S. Edson, county water consultant, outlining needs for future water development of South Lake Tahoe area and advising that Fallen Leaf Lake offers the most economical source.

The result of a study asked of Edson by the board, the findings contended with the estimation of an ultimate summer population of 150,000 and a year-long population average of 50,000 people.

Edson’s findings agree with those of other studies that a serious sanitary situation is developing at the South Tahoe area which will call for the close scrutiny of the well-supplied water serving most users …

The county, presumably, will correlate findings in Edson’s report for future determination of the course of action …

Edson says the ultimate population figures used for the purpose of the report indicate that a gross annual water requirement of 2800 acre feet will exist. With recognition that 50 percent of the water required for the average daily requirements will return to the underground basin, consumptive use of 1400 acre feet is foreseen …

The main hall was beautifully decorated with holly, oak and trailing vines interspersing the Knight Templar colors, the whole effect will being most attractive. Off the main hall, fruit punch was served in a little bower of hanging grape vines, eulalia and tinted foliage. An informal programme was given consisting of selections by Ball’s orchestra of six pieces, a solo by Mrs. S. H. Rantz, a solo by Mrs. C. E. Peters, a quartette by Miss Carpenter, Mrs. S. H. Rantz, Messrs. Fox and Mierson, and a reading by S. Inch, Sr. For those who did not dance, a card room was arranged in the old banquet room where cards, authors and dominoes were engaged in throughout the evening …
