PIASA SPRING 



This lovely spring in its rustic setting was one of the decid- 
ing factors in the selection of the grounds by the original com- 
mittee. Evidence was found to support the fact that the spring 
had been used by the Indians. Life in the valley has been 
traced to about 1850. The flow of the spring, about 85,000 
gallons per day, has not diminished to this day. Tests of the 
water are made frequently. The Chautauqua Association, in 
an effort to maintain the highest sanitary condition of the 
spring, has tapped the source of the spring at a point 150 feet 
within the bluff. It is then pumped to the reservoir on the 
hilltop.

Roque 

Roque is one of the most popular games played at Chau- 
tauqua. It's history there dates back some thirty-five, or forty 
years, with great interest shown in the game among the men, 
women and children of Chautauqua. Among the Champions 
of previous years are L. C. Haynes, Judge Flannigan, Ed. 
Jacoby, Favre Gould, Dr. Gordon Smith, Arch Trabue, and 
in 1950, L. G. Keith was crowned the champion. A tourna- 
ment for boys was held in 1951, which was won by Frank 
G. Weyforth, Junior, of St. Louis. For the season of 1952, 
the Athletic Committee, with C. J. Jacoby, as Chairman, plans 
a renewal of championship play for men and women, boys 
and girls, and requests your cooperation in making the tourna- 
ments a success. 

The game of Roque was originated in England where it is 
a popular pastime. It is a form of croquet, but differs in that 
the playing surface is a combination of clay and sand firmly 
tapped. Play becomes more expert through carom shots off 
the side walls at times obligatory to renew play on an oppo- 
nent's ball. 

Added accuracy is also necessary in that the permanently 
installed arches are only one-eighth of an inch wider than 
the ball, which is of hard rubber composition. Short-handled 
mallets vary from the croquet style and offer two playing 
surfaces, one solid and the other of pliable rubber surface 
for delicate manipulation. 

For the 1952 season, the Chairman of the Roque Tourna- 
ment Committee invites men, women and children to partici- 
pate in the games of roque played not only during the day, 
but at night on the well-lighted courts. Two courts are main- 
tained, one for Championship play and the other for Women 
and children. 

If anyone desires instruction in the game, that can be ar- 
ranged. If interested, leave your name with the Manager at 
the Office, or contact any member of the Athletic Committee.

THE PICTURE ROCKS 

To add to the charm of this location, the significant name given in 
the early days to the chain of magnificent stone bluffs from Alton to 
Grafton, "The Piasa Bluffs", taken from the Indian legends and traditions 
of the Piasa Bird. This dragon was pictured on the rocks of the bluffs 
and was reported as having been visible as late as 1849. It was described 
as a composite monster with the face of a man, horns of a deer, the wings 
of a bird, the claws of a lion, and the tail of a serpent. The tradition was 
that this dragon was the enemy of the Indians and destroyed many of the 
Illini Indians until it was destroyed by a young Chief of the tribe. 

The Piasa Bluffs Assembly was incorporated in July, 1885 under the 
laws of Illinois. The Incorporators were B. S. J. Fry, J. A. Field, Fletcher 
M. Doan, R. H. Manier, George W. Brown, Theo. Harrison and M. R. 
Locke. 

The writer was elected Corresponding Secretary of the Corporation 
and visited numerous churches and schoolhouses to secure the money to 
purchase the land. At the close of the second camp meeting, J. A. Scarrett 
was elected Superintendent of the Grounds. During his management, the 
grounds were platted, trees planted, streets and avenues laid out, and the 
Auditorium and many cottages built. It was very successful from the start. 

In 1909 the New Piasa Chautauqua Association was formed to take 
over the grounds and property of the Piasa Bluffs Assembly.
