Whiskered Wizards Will Play At Lehi Tonight In a unique basketball game, the "Whiskered Wizards' and a group of Utah County All-Stars will play at Lehi tonight (Thursday) at 8 p. m. in the high school gymnasium. Passing with a split vision so that the home teams never knows where the ball is going, and the crowd often oft-en wondering where it is, this team sets up plays with such finesse and dispatch that it is comparatively simple for them to do prolific scoring, scor-ing, and while doing these feats they have earned the name of the "Mon archs cf Monkey Shines". An all-star group of former high school and college stars of Utah Valley have been assembled to test out the ability of the Wizards, and for those who love fun, they will have a hard time watching the game as Happy, the clown, works the crowd from the time the starting whistle blows to the final gun. The team puts on a half -hour pre-game show of trick shooting, dazzling pepper passing, comedy juggling, playing baseball with a basketball, tricks by Happy's horse, Dogbiscuits, etc. During intermission at half-time Happy Holmes puts on a one-man, ten-minute side splittin vaudeville. The team of "wizards' is made up of Tommy Merrick, two-time All-American All-American A. A. U. forward, and members of the nation's outstand ing amateur and pro teams of the. past few years: Carley Risinger, All-Border Conference guard at Texas, Tech.; Tommy White, All-1. All-1. 1. A.

The ages are from 18 to 45 and anyone interested in enlisting enlist-ing with the guard can call at the local Armory. The enlistments will be open up until Saturday, March 1, and after that date no further enlistments can be taken, local officers report. The local guards will be inducted into service for a year of military service on March 3. They will remain re-main here until March 13, when they leave for Camp San Luis Obispo, California. Many of the local young men are joining up with the guard, feeling that they would rather be with the local group during the year of military mili-tary training, than be drafted into the regular selective service training. train-ing.

SI) s By Uarda McCarty The fate of Governor Herbert B. Maws far-reaching government re organization plan rests with the Utah state senate following the sur prising and practically unanimous passage last Friday by the house of representatives of H. B. 82, the single measure encompassing all of the chief executive's proposals for executive, departmental, and com' mission revamping. It now remains for the 23 state senators to decide in what form they will consider the governor's proposals as the one all-inclusive H. B. 82 or in the apparently fav ored assortment of 39 bills recently introduced in the upper house to individually cover the varied phases of the plan. Legislative experts predict pre-dict that the passed house bill will be discarded and reorganization enacted en-acted in the series of attorney-analyzed attorney-analyzed measures. At the close of the 41st session day Saturday the 39 reorganization reorganiza-tion bills and at least 10 others allied with reorganization were under un-der consideration, with legal assistance, assist-ance, by the senate committee on revision and enrollment. It was expected ex-pected that some of the measures, passed upon as constitutionally drawn, would reach the senate calendar cal-endar this week. ! In the meantime 382 of the 510 bills and resolutions introduced up to last Friday night remained unacted un-acted upon by either senate or house. Of the 510 total, 52 had been passed by both houses. Of these, Governor Maw had signed jyUo place them on the statute boohrmrwenty-one bills and resolution!- il been killed by the two legisi j branches.

The house had 27 senate-passed measures to act upon and the senate 19 house-passed measures. Approximately 100 of the 382 bills and resolutions as yet unacted upon up-on had to do with taxation and court or legal procedure divided about 50 each. Another 50 had to do with state government reorganization. Fourteen concerned education, 15 traffic or highways, 13 were of interest in-terest to labor, and 11 to water users. us-ers. Thirteen carry appropriations. Ten relate to elections, 10 to defense, five to housing, five to fish and game, six to welfare, six to liquor sales, and eight to health. A dozen or so have to do with agriculture and livestock. Others relate to civil service, pensions, and marriage. Several are of regulatory nature, while nearly 10 seek establishment of commissions or boards. The senate last week passed the house-approved bill : authorizing counties to levy a tax for participation partici-pation in weed eradication programs, the house bill strengthening supervision super-vision of benevolent and mutual insurance in-surance companies, and another house bill making it optional rather than mandatory to maintain a city court in municipalities of more than 5,000 population.

Rawlins, president of the Utah Sugar Beet Growers Association, Associa-tion, has forwarded an appeal to all farmers of the state immediately to send in their requests for sugar beet acreage. "Ask for the full amount you desire de-sire to plant," he advised the farmers. farm-ers. The sugar section of AAA has re duced the allotment of sugar beet acreage about 16 per cent. Mr. Raw lins said the prospective growers should not pay any attention to this reduction, but leave it to the county committees to work out the allot ment for individual growers. "The main thing is to make sure that Utah plants the full allotment because the acreage planted will be used in fixing allotments for each factory district next year," he ex plained. The farmers should not consider the negotiations between their assO' elation and the sugar manufactur Ing companies as a reason to delay requests for acreage, he said. Mr. Rawlins predicted that a satisfactory satis-factory contract will be negotiated with the sugar making companies and also said that prices for sugar and therefore for beets will advance, according to present indications.

Biography of Fern Rothe White People Liked Her She never rose to wealth or fame, Simply she lived, and simply died, , But of the passing of her name Left a sorrow far and wide. Not for glory she's attained Nor for what she had of pelf Were the friends that she had gained, But for what she was herself. Elsa Fern Rothe White, 24, was born in Lehi September 6. 1916. She was a daughter of Max B. and Annie A. Rothe: and wife of Floyd S. White. Even as a small child Fern had a very sunny disposition, a character istic which grew with her. She was born a twin, and she and Fon were inseparable through the years. Fern was a very choice member of the Lehi Fourth ward most of her life. Being born a leader, no party or gathering was ever complete without her. Her radiance and hum or brought happiness to all who knew her. How well so many of her friends remember the ward outing out-ing at Mutual Dell each summer, when Fern was always on hand to lead in the games and direct programs. pro-grams. She was Idolized by all who knew her. After a gloriously happy courtship Floyd and Fern were married in the Salt Lake Temple December 17, 1937; by our former stake president, S. L. Chipman.

She was a teacher In the Sunday School, in the Presidency Presi-dency of the Primary, a member of the Primary Stake Board, Beehive teacher in the Mutual, and at the time she moved to Logan, was sup ervisor of the Lehi District 4-H clubs. After their marriage Fern and Floyd moved to Logan, where Floyd planned to continue his education. With Fern as a pal and helpmate he has made a splendid record, and will graduate this spring from the Utah State Agricultural college, a fact of which Fem was very proud. Not only In Lehi was she an ac- tive church worker; but in her new surroundings at Logan Fern made many friends and participated in many activities.

Hammond, Chairman of the Utah State Road Commission, today urged all Utah motorists to cooperate coope-rate with law enforcement officers in an attempt to cut traffic accidents acci-dents at least in half during the present year. Last year, in Utah, 171 people lost their lives in traffic accidents involving in-volving automobiles. This Is a tremendous tre-mendous economic loss to say nothing noth-ing of the grief and sorrow that somes to the relatives and friends of those involved. A careful study of the accidents reveal that a majority of them could have been, prevented with the exercise exer-cise of reasonable care on the part of the drivers involved. "There Is so little reason for excessive speed, said Mr. Hammond. "A person may save five minutes or even ten minutes min-utes by speeding, but what does that profit anyone if it costs the life or the limb of the driver or of some one else? And there are not many appointments ap-pointments that can't wait a few minutes if it saves a life." Mr. Hammond pointed out that most motorists feel that they are Immune from accident without stopping to think that it might mean their own death or the death of a loved one in case of accident and so they take chances that are all out of reason. After the accident, realization real-ization comes too late to be of any use. If motorists would stop to visualize vis-ualize in advance what would happen hap-pen in case of accident there mould be more careful drivers and far fewer few-er accidents. Let's make 1941 the "Drive Carefully" Care-fully" year.
