These were the registers of the old White House Hotel, operated by the late Lee Rogers at the Forks. and that of the old Whaleback Hotel, operated by Mr. Kennedy. The books contained many names familiar in Arlington and Hailer City early history. They were giv- en to Mr. Strotz by the late Otto Wrage. H. A. T.
