IIOMK OF&KNKVA STKKl Volume 15 Number 16 OK EM, TAll THURSDAY, APRIL24, 1947 34th Annua nvitation eet Friday, Sat'day BYU Track ACROSS THE EDITORS' DESK Orem can never really come into its own until after the official United States Census of 1950 is taken. We make this statement with some misgivings about what it implies, but with no doubt as to its accuracy. The reason for this statement is this: while it is estimated thai the area of Orem City equals or exceeds that of Salt Lake City, the population of Orem is quite a bit less. And here is where the rub comes. With ever iiiercasini.r financial obligations of city maintenance and improvements, the Orem City Council is faced with a budget limited by the official 1910 IT. S. Census population popu-lation figure foe Orem of 2914 people. With the unparalleled growth of Orem in the last seven years, bringing people from all over the United States to be permanent residents of the city, much expansion in the way of water' lines, sewer systems, roads, etc. haw been necessary. Only through a strict economy in expenditures has the city been able to do as much as it has in the way of improvement. As a grimly humorous example of what we are talking about consider the statement of Utah county Centennial Committee on allocation of funds to nine cities in Utah county as provided by vote of the county committee at a meeting held December 23, 1946, in Utah County Commission rooms. The amount to be allocated to the nine cities in Utah county was $24,242.00, which was to be divided upon a per capita basis, using the official U. S. Census of 1040 to determine deter-mine the population of each town. This meant that Orem received 6.80 per cent of total amount or $ 1,648.45, based on a population of 2941. No one questions the fact that the population of Orem has nearly trebled during the period since the 1910 Census was taken. Probably no other city in Utah county has seen such an increase in population in so. short a time. With these facts in mind would it be unjust to suggest that at lea-4 some discrimination was shown in appropriating' Centennial money ? A Necessary Explanation Erroneous impressions have been received regarding the expenditure of funds received by the Orem Centennial Centen-nial Committee. The following statement from the State Centennial Commission is published in the hope of clarifying cl-arifying this: EXPENDITURES "1. Funds contributed by the State Centennial Commission Commis-sion to County Centennial committees may be spent for any purpose directly related to either the preparation for or production of Centennial celebrations. "2. Certification by county committees that expenditures expendi-tures were made in offical connection with activities identified by the county Centennial cimmittee as part of the Centennial observances will be accepted by the Centennial Commission. "?. Funds received -from the state can not be used to assist any local organization in producing a celebration celebra-tion during 1947 unless the profits from that celebration celebra-tion are turned over to and become the property of the county in which the celebration is held. "4. Any part of the grant from the state which is either unmatched or unused must be returned to the. Utah Centennial Commission. "5. Any profits made by counties from their Centennial Centen-nial observances may be retained by the counties in which the profit is made. This does not apply to either traveling arts events sent out by the state office or sports events receiving assistance from the Centennial Centen-nial state sports fund. ' . . "6. County Centennial committees should keep a set of books on their expenditures in sufficient detail to provide pro-vide an overall .statement to the Centennial . Commission Commis-sion at the conclusion of the county celebrations, which statement would be .presented in turn to the State Finance Fin-ance Commission and. the next meeting of the state legislature leg-islature This statement need not be in small detail but should give in ,;enentl terms a complete picture bf total funds available to the county committee and the divisions of their expenditure."
