A well-known animal trainer, James B. Murphy, arrived in Spokane with a large “collection of wild animals” to be used in a movie to be filmed at the Playter Studios in Minnehaha Park.
Murphy was a big game hunter and animal trainer who had become a supplier of wild beasts for Hollywood film studios. He had been an “animal motion picture producer” for two years at the Universal Zoo in Los Angeles.
From the election beat: The right to vote presented a quandary for some women voters in Spokane, reported The Spokesman-Review.
In order to register, they had to give their ages. A number of women confessed to a reporter that they had been reluctant to confess their true ages.
“Registration caused me a great worry this year,” said one woman. “I stood in the long line for an hour, trying to remember what age I had registered last year, so as not to appear to have grown too young in the interim.”
The story mentioned that women were not alone in this. Men had also fudged their ages. One woman checked the registration rolls and was shocked to discover that her husband had registered with an age that made him 15 years her junior.
From the Gonzaga beat: Gonzaga University launched a fundraising drive for a “Greater Gonzaga,” envisioning new dormitories, science labs, and “a full school of medicine.”
The latter was not destined to happen. The dream of a medical school would prove elusive.
