Looking Back for March 23, 1934


From the Friday, March 23, 1934, edition of The Steamboat Pilot:

Andrew Kiddy sentenced after guilty plea

Andrew Kiddy, of Mount Harris, pleaded guilty to the charge of burglary when he was given a hearing before Judge Charles E. Herrick in the district court Saturday. Kiddy was sentenced to spend between 18 months and three years in the state penitentiary. The charge to which he pleaded guilty was the theft of inner tubes and other articles from the Mount Harris filling station March 5. He had been confined in the county jail since that time.

Charles Mitchell, of Steamboat Springs, pleaded guilty to the charge of unlawful sale of spirituous liquor. He was given a fine of $300 or 100 days in jail. He is in the county jail pending the payment of the fine.

Ribbing, Stevens work to fill hatchery with rainbows

CA Ribbing will come to Steamboat Springs in about the middle of April to help Sam Stevens take the rainbow trout eggs for the Steamboat hatchery. They expect to get about a million eggs this spring from the fish, which they will trap in the smaller streams and from those in the lake nursery. Should there not be enough rainbow eggs to fill the troughs, Sam will send for some native eggs to complete the capacity of the hatchery. There is a possibility that the water in the streams will be low this summer.

Teachers throw St. Patrick's Day party for students

The annual St. Patrick's Day party given by teachers for high school students was held Friday afternoon immediately after school.

Each of the classes lived in an Irish village and came to Dublin on St. Patrick's Day for a real Irish celebration. All of the villagers boosted their hometowns by entering the contests and games, such as the Irish torch relay, the Irish potato-peeling race, walking to Dublin on a perfectly straight line with field glasses, the milking contest and the popcorn-eating contest.

The villagers from Murphyville, the seniors, acquired the greatest number of points in the 20 events, thereby receiving the large box of candy as the prize. The juniors from Kellyville came in as a close second, winning 39 points against the 41 1/2 of the seniors. After the juniors, the freshmen came third.
