This week in history as reported by The Summit County Journal the week of June 17, 1922.

Radcliffe Chautauqua was a big hit

The first chautauqua to be held in Breckenridge wrapped up Wednesday and was declared a huge success by all who attended. Financially, it didn’t go as well as might have been expected, but that was mostly due to people not understanding what kind of entertainment it would be. But from an entertainment and education standpoint, it turned out more than expected.

From the opening number, in which the Coleman Concert Co. and Dr. Lacey appeared, to the closing number with the Kirk Frederick Concert Co. and Dr. Bingham, each member appearing proved to be a star. The crowd was also divided over which doctors were the best orators, according to the critics present, who had ever appeared on a Breckenridge stage.

The event took place in a tent on the grounds of the Foote house on North Main Street, Breckenridge. Large crowds gathered for both performances, but evening performances were hampered by the cold. Wednesday night’s closing number suffered the most from the cold, and many in the tent were forced to carry heavy envelopes.

Great preparations for the masquerade

The Redmen’s masquerade ball promises to surpass its previous 36 occasions if the plans being drawn up by the committee in charge do not fail. The local Redmen have been striving to make the Masquerade Ball the event of the year, and this year every effort will be made to top previous events.

The costumes will be on display in the Torkington building at the old Bruch stand next Saturday, and will continue until the evening of the ball. Several new costumes have been added to the selection. Prizes will be awarded to the best but also to the funniest costumes. The five-piece Timberline Jazz Orchestra will provide the music and all are guaranteed to have a good old time.

Paper late this week

The Journal will reach its customers a few days later this week. Mr. Lampe, who has been on the paper for about a year, left for Denver last Saturday after spraining his wrist. We couldn’t get any further help until Friday this week, and because of that, we won’t be able to get the mail on time. We thank our many friends for all past kindness, trusting that the delay and explanation will be accepted.

French Gulch dredge to begin operations

The dredge formerly operated by the French Gulch Dredging Co. was sold to the Florence Gold Dredging Co. of Denver, and preliminary repair work to start operations began on Friday. WH Wade is the superintendent in charge of operations.

The French Gulch dredge has been one of the most successful in the district. The boat was originally moved here from Clear Creek County and dredged some of the richer terrain in the camp.
