MIDSUMMER ALBUM

For 15 years Russell Dearmont, president of Missouri Pacific, and a number of his St. Louis friends have taken summer fishing trips to Ontario. This summer they flew to Miss Barbara Machin's camp at Shoal Lake, 40 miles from Kenora—half a dozen leading business men who fished for walleyes and Great Northern pike, ate lunch outdoors, played bridge at night. Dearmont, generally called Senator because he was once a state senator, figured in the main wilderness experience of the camp when he chased a swimming moose. Every vacation produces its classic views for family albums, differing in background and characters, but, like these, summoning up the wilderness that attracts Americans each summer like a fragment of their national past still persisting into modern times.
