OLD MAN RIVER HAS QUIT ROLLING: This desolate scene shows how the usually popular municipal bathing beach on the Huron River appears when the river bed is exposed. The Detroit Edison Co. emptied the water to permit repairs on the Argo dam, and the city is taking advantage of the occasion by spending $1,000 to improve the beach. The view here is taken from the east side of the river.

Sitting in the sun along the edge of the Huron River at the Argo dam is Mrs. Henry Lou Owens of 1253 N. Main St., who is cleaning "a mess of greens," she has just gathered nearby. The greens are not, in this case, dandelions, but a variety of watercress which make fine eating, according to Mrs. Owens. She advises boiling them with a dab of salt pork or bacon.
