CAVE-IN - Picher businessmen are managing to keep their sense of humor in the face of a recommendation by the Eagle Picher Mining and Smelting company that business operators and residents of the downtown area move out of a zone which may be hazardous because of undermining. Paul Sanders, a Picher man, carried a parachute to Thursday's luncheon session of the Lions club at which Lyndon Scott spoke in regard to the Picher hazard situation. G. r. Scott of Miami, a district field representative of the Boy Scouts of America, was guest speaker and discussed the part scouting plays in character building and citizenship training. He cited rapid growth of scouting in Picher and said the city now has 100 members of Boy Scout troops as compared with 20 members a year ago.
C. E. McClanahan, club president, presided during a business session. Guests were Alvin Estus of Miami and Carter Windham of Baxter Springs. The Lions Club directors will meet at 7:30 Monday night in the Bowers insurance office. Lyndon Scott, chairman of a special committee considering plans for steps to be taken to meet the possible danger of a mine cave-in said that although this subject may come up at the session, so far there have been no new developments which would warrant such considerations.
