Power Company Warns of Kite Flying Danger March the season of winds and kites and fun for the kids. Yes, it's a lot of fun to fly kites but it's also dangerous. Mr. L. R. Fournier, General Superintendent Superinten-dent of Telluride Power Company says that unless the kite flier is aware of the danger and takes necessary precautions, serious accidents ac-cidents can result. For instance, you know and I know that regardless regar-dless of how they are warned, kids do fly kites near power lines. We also know that metal is a con ductor of electricity, so if a kite is made of metal and it happens to blow into a power line, it would easily short the wires, burn them in two and the falling wire could injure people or property. Again, suppose the string attached at-tached to the kite were metal you can see immediatelly what might happen to the boy or girl holding the string. Because water is a good conductor con-ductor of electricity, let us just suppose the kite is made of paper and wood, and the string is just plain cotton string, but the child accidently drops the ball of string in some water, or it gets wet from rain or snow. Immediately this string becomes a conductor of electricity and is entirely unsafe un-safe for flying kites. So this year let's make kite flying safe. Whether its you flying the kite, your child or your neighbor's neigh-bor's child be sure to observe these saftey rules: First Keep kites away from electric wires. Second Use dry cotton string only. Third Never use metal on kites and foorth Never climb poles to retrieve kites or to shake them off the wires. Call the Power Company. Deseret II. S.

Morrison, who has written "Wingovers" for the Chron icle for several years past, received re-ceived high praise at the meeting of the Utah State Press Association Associa-tion in Salt Lake City by O. N. Malmquist of the Salt Lake Tri bune. Mr. Malmquist is considered the dean of writers in the inter-mountain inter-mountain area, and handles special spe-cial assignments for the Tribune. Mr. Malmquist was the featured speaker at the morning session Sunday and singled out the Millard Mil-lard County Chronicle and said, "I read all of the Utah weeklies and a great many from all over the intermountain west. In the Chronicle there is a column called call-ed "Wingovers," written by an R. S. Morrison. To my opinion Mr. Morrison is the best writer, by far, of any contributor to a country weekly paper. The man writes on a variety of subjects, it may be a book review, an article on some new development in aviation, or it may be on music, but whatever Mr. Morrison chooses !for his subject sub-ject he writes exceptionally well, shows deep thought, and the man proves to be a thinker. "The Wall Street Journey" receives re-ceives thousands of letters a week," continued Mr Malmquist, "and it Is surprising to see the number of letters they publish from Mr. Morrison, which proves the quality of his work and the thought- provoking subjects he cover, especially when you consider consid-er the great many letters from which they can choose to publish." Mr. Malmquist said he read "Wingovers" each week to get. new ideas, and highly praised Mr. Morrison's ability to write and his ability for clear thinking. The Rich field Reaper "Rat Race," was the only other column singled out by Mr. Malmquist andhe said he read that for laughs and to read the type of news covered there that could be covered In no other way. With "Wingovers," Mr. Morrison brings in his copy neatly typed each Monday morning, and in all the years he has been writing it, he has never been paid one cent by the Chronicle. And if mistakes appear in it at times, blame it on the proof reading done in this office, rot on Mr. Morrison. We feel that Dick richly deserves Mr. Malmquist's praise.
