1950 Season — New Piasa Chautauqua 

The 65th season of New Piasa Chautauqua will open Saturday, 
June 17th, offering a wholesome and delightful vacation program 
for the enjoyment of the many annual residents and visitors who 
know the natural beauty and culture of Chautauqua valley. 

Folklore and history of more than three score years make each 
summer season more enjoyable to our visitors. 

The "Legend of the Piasa Bird" relives its part in Chautauqua 
activities year after year and the following reprint from the 1889 
program edited by the late John McAdams of Alton will refresh 
your minds of the many seasons of the past under the guidance and 
directions of the Past Presidents of Chautauqua.

New Piasa Chautauqua 



HOW WE GOT OUR NAME 
Legend of Piasa Bird 

Long years ago, when the country was inhabited by a very large and pros' 
perous tribe of Indians known as the Illini (or Illinois), at a time when this 
tribe was at the height of its prosperity, they were terrified at the appearance 
on the inaccessible bluffs where it made its home, of an immense and hideous 
animal, half bird, half beast, which, from the fact of its having wings, the 
natives called "Piasa" or "Man-destroying Bird." This monster is described 
as being of gigantic size; so strong that it could carry off a buffalo in its talons. 
In appearance it was most frightful: Its wings as black as the raven's, and 
clothed with thunder; its legs, four in number, had talons like those of an 
eagle; its body was like that of a dragon, and covered with glistening scales; 
its enormous tail ended like that of a fish. In its fight it made a most terrific 
appearance, inspiring those who saw it with terror and awe. 

While the people gazed awestruck, this bird swooped down and carried off 
brave after brave to its den in the rocks. The appetite of this monster seemed 
to grow more ravenous the more it tasted of human blood. 

The tribe was rapidly diminishing in numbers from the ravages of this 
monster. Owatoga, chief of the once mighty Illini, retired to a secret place 
with his priests to implore the aid of the Great Spirit. While engaged in 
fasting and mummery of his religion, it was revealed to him the manner in 
which the monster might be destroyed. The mode was this: First, a noble 
victim was to be selected from among the bravest warriors, who by religious 
rites was to be sanctified for the sacrifice. Secondly, twentyfive warriors of 
the bravest, with their stoutest bows and sharpest arrows, were to conceal 
themselves near the place of sacrifice. The victim was to be led forth and 
alone take his position upon an exposed point of rock, where the destroyer 
would be most likely to discover and seize upon him. At the moment of 
the monster's descent, the concealed warr.ors were to let fly their arrows, 
with the assurance that the Piasa would be slain. 

On the day appointed, the braves repaired to their secret place as directed 
by the vision, near where the victim was to stand. The name of the victim 
had been kept secret up to the hour of sacrifice. Judge, then, the astonish' 
ment, when dressed in his proudest robes, Owatoga appeared himself the 
victim. The tears and shrieks of the women, and the expostulations of the 
chiefs, availed nothing; he was bent on his solemn promise. With a proud 
step he walked forth and took his place on the appointed spot, while the 
people looked on with bated breath. Soon the monster, cleaving the air 
with his horrid wings, was seen hovering over the spot, and after wheeling 
about for a few moments, high over the head of the doomed man, nearing 
at each gyration, he suddenly came thundering down to seize his prey. Just 
as his awful talons grazed the plumes of the chieftain's head, twentyfive 
bow-strings twanged, and twentyfive sharp arrows sped as were never bolts 
shot before, piercing the monster's breast. An appalling death'&hriek, such 
as mortals never heard before, resounded on the cliffs and the common foe 
lay writhing in death. The Piasa was dead and Owatoga, the beloved chief, 
stood unharmed. Unbounded rejoicing succeeded the event. Owatoga was 
borne in triumph to the council house. In commemoration of the event, a 
picture of the Piasa was painted on the rocks that lay beneath the spot where 
it was killed, where it remained for centuries and was plain to be seen, until 
a few years ago the bluff was quarried away for the purpose of making lime. 

— Prof. McAdams, in "The Defecator."

The Forgotten Name Train 

Let others write of Irori'Horses, flexing muscles on the rails, 
I sing of the stalwart "Dinkey" winding round the river trails. 
As the Supersonic eagles climb the heights with Ghostly speed 
'Jack releases of his hand'brakes — All of twenty horses freed." 

From the levee by the wheat bins to the joining of the streams 
Flashing on the jousting irons, round the bluffs the Dinkey gleams, 
Past Hop-Hollow, past the quarry, past the Yacht Club in its stride, 
Rumbling over mighty (?) culverts, roars Sheehan's "Joy and Pride". 

Past the College on the hilltop as the Herons pause to drink 
Comes the bustling, Benzine Buggy, comes the orange colored "Dink". 
Then unloading, then reloading, travelers who have journeyed far, 
Fully ten miles to the City in that fearless motor car. 

With a lunge, she plunges forward to the distant journey's end, 
Twenty miles, her horn a blowing as a ship comes round the bend. 
There are Epics of migrations, saga's of the rails I think — 
But when history's page is written, words should be written of the "Dink'

The Eddie Cantor Creed 

EDDIE CANTOR, an ardent safety crusader for many years, 
proposed the following "All 'Round Safety Creed" at a recent 
Chicago convention. 

1. I will try at all times to remember that rudeness and reckless- 
ness on my part can hurt others, as well as myself, and is bad 
citizenship. 

2. I will, therefore, drive my car like a lady (or a gentleman), 
and be as courteous behind the wheel as I am to guests in my home. 

3. I will check my home for hazards and try to make it as safe 
as it is attractive. 

4. I will take all reasonable precautions to avoid accidents as I 
work, for the protection of my fellow workers, as well as myself. 

5. Wherever I am, whatever I am doing, I will try to remember 
that it takes only a second to use common sense and caution — 
and that it takes a lifetime to pay for forgetting. 

6. I will do more than just be careful, myself. I will enlist, in 
a united community effort, to bring safety to everyone through 
better laws, better enforcement, better realization of the problem. 

7. I will not drive more than 10 miles per hour on the Chau- 
tauqua grounds, for if I do, I will endanger the lives of others, 
especially children. 

8. I will not use my car driving around the grounds unless it 
is absolutely necessary; I will leave it parked and walk. 

9. All dogs must be on lead or muzzled.
