Let's Look Around
Relieved of these flood worries Richlanders' thoughts
turned to lighter things. Local youth activities were
the recipients of benefits from the first annual Turtle
Derby. 200 turtles imported from the hills of Tennessee
provided an interesting afternoon and evening for those
habitues of the racing profession.
Model auto racing and miniature airplanes took over the
interest of their enthusiasts. The ever popular stables
and the evening softball under the lights provides welcome
recreation for both participants and observers.
In late summer a new swimming pool exploded into being as
a non-profit organization was incorporated to build and
manage this much needed facility.
The accelerated installation of new facilities in North
Richland made news with the opening of grocery, drug and
department stores. The organization of the North Richland
Improvement Association bade fair to make the construction
workers' community a model one.
