' ' PARENT'S DAY AT PLAYGROUND GREAT SUCCESS Children And Parents Revel In Stunts; Games Lunch And Music Wednesday was a gala day at the playgrounds in the city park. It was Parents 'Day, and the interest which the fathers and mothers of the city are taking in the splendid work which is being carried on for the children, under the expert care of Miss Mildred Stone, the supervisor, was evidenced by an exceptionally large attendance. During the forenoon, the children went through an entertaining program consisting of all sorts ). of athletic stunts? such as horeshoe pitching, tumbling, clog and tap dancing and any other children's games.1 The little ones gave decided evidence" of the result of their supervision, by the skill with which they performed the numbers alloted them. The development work of the youngsters proved decidedly interesting, and gave practical proof of their skill in taking old cans and other family discards, extending their life by molding them into something for household use or ornament. In the afternoon a program had been arranged in which the parents participated. This included sack races and other forms of recreational stunts for grown-upThe most enjoyable of g these, perhaps, was the contest, its novelty being accentuated by the fact, that quite a few of the entrants were of the male persuasion. It was surprising the skill which some of them exhibited, and wives who were present, are quite certain in the future to draft their husbands into this particular species of house hold work. In the evening there was a picnic lunch. And it was an exceptionally good one ior do cents, the proceeds going toward a fund to provide for the continuance of Miss Mildred Stone as supervisor of the playgrounds. Professor George O. Nye brought the High bchool band to the park in the evening and gave a delightful uro duration after gram of a which, he led those present in a series of community singing. Taken in its entirety it was a day of continuous enjoyment which is certain to quicken the interest of parents in the healthful and educational work which is being done for their children on the c;ty playgrounds. s. clothes-hangin- half-hour- 's Last Concert Of Season By High School Band The last of the series of open-ai- r summer concerts, which have been given by the High School band, under the able leadership of Prof. Geo. 0. Nye, will be rendered Saturday night. The band has given eight concerts during the season, and have been lis tened to with delight by many hun dreds of people. For the closing concert, an excep tionally tine program has been pre pared and is certain to attract a large audience. Without being desirous of criticising other musical organizations, the fact has been made patent during these concerts, that the high school band not only equals, but surpasses many professional bands, and it is questionable whether any other school band in the state can excel them. The selections have been well chosen and the rendering exceptionally fine, particularly in the matter of time. The latter, in no single instance, left &nything to be desired. The band will play from 8:30 to 9:30 p. m. This closing concert is complimentary to the city, for which the young mus- cians will accept no compensation. ii i y The W. C. T. U. is holding an Institute Friday, August 1st. The program will start at 10:30 in the L. D. S. chapel. Mrs. Leona Brewer, national organizer and state president of the Arizona W. C. T. U., and Mrs. M. H. Parry of Salt Lake City, Utah State president, will be present with other state officers from Ogden and Logan. The program of the afternoon is one of special interest to mothers, and everyone is welcome and urged to attend. The evening meeting will be held in the M. E. Church starting with a dinner and special program of music and addresses. The dinner will be 50c per plate and is open to the public. all-da- w NUMBER 46. 1930. 5 Baby Is Burned In THIS CITY MAY Peculiar Accident -- lft - . W. C. T. U.

As opposition is being encountered from the U.I.G and the D. & R. G rail roads, it may be some little time before the application is disposed of. There was a large delegation of business men and city officials from Bear River valley present at the hearing on Tuesday, and to a man, they strongly favored the granting of the application of the Union Pacific.

A 100 ACRES ON RANCH ROBERTS Grain Crop Destroyed By Flames With Loss Of Over Hurt Garland Women Give When Truck Hits Ditch Loyd Fredrickson, employed on the Harry Stanfield ranch at Penrose, was severely injured Tuesday evening about 5 o'clock, when a truck in which he was returning from Lampo to the ranch at Penrose, overturned and pinned him in the ditch beneath the car. He managed to extricate himself but received some deep, ugly gashes about the face and head. He is now at the Valley hospital, where it was found necessary to take 30 stitches in the wounds. The truck, driven by a boy who had just started to work. on the Stanfeld ranch, had taken a load of grain to the warehouse at Lamno for shipment. He was accompanied by Fredrickson. On the return trip, when about a mile southeast of Lampo, the boy lost control of the car, which left the road and turned over in the barpit. The driver jumped and was uninjured, but Frederickson .was not so fortun-nte- . He was pinned beneath the truck, but unaided, was able to crawl from under. He sustained a deep cut, running from over the rieht eye to the ear. a gash in the back of his head, on the right side; another crash on the head and still another on the left temple. ch Imthurn Family Return From Visit To Kansas Mr. and Mrs. Adam Imthurn have returned from a stay in Kansas, a part of the time at the home of Adam's mother in Sabbatha, Kan., but the greater part of their stay was spent at a hospital in Kansas City, where Adam underwent treatment for an internal trouble. He declares he feels better than he has in years and that the treatment was entirely successful. Mrs. Imthura says that Kansas City may be a nice place to live in, but when the thermometer hovers around 118 and 120, for weeks at a stretch, it's just a bit too hot for her and she is well contented to get back home. Utah, she declares, is good enough for her. The children, Adam, Jr., and Dean, who accompanied their parents on the trip, do not share their mother's opinion of Kansas, saying they had the time of their lives, notwithstanding their father's illness. But, at that, they are glad to be home again. six-wee- ks Will Visit Grain And Seed Plats On Friday Robert H.
