Last week they invited attorney Dudley Crafts to come and explain to them just how the Federal, state, county, City and Town courts oper-j ate. His talk was not only very j educational but interesting and we, want to thank him for his time and such an informative talk. We have never realized the responsibil-j ity and part the courts play in our, everyday lives. In this class, we have also been ( learning about our two party sys- tern, and how these parties origin- ated. We have been trying to see some of the issues of this campaign and learn how to vote so that on election day we shall be able to have a "mock election" In our class. v I3oodinobi!e Comes Nov. 12 , The American Red Cross Blood-mobile Blood-mobile will 'be in Delta Monday, Nov. 12, at Deseret Stake House from 2 to 7 p. m., to collect blood for their vital blood bank program.

Attorney Eldon A. Eliason, of Delta, and his father, E. J. Ehason, of Deseret, acted as local guides and narrators. 1 They were joined by members of Daughter of Utah Pioneers, County President Ella C. Black, Capt. Verna Gardner, Callie Morley, Mrs. Adelia Stephenson, and A. E. Stephenson, ' of Delta, and Capt. Telia Fisher, I first vice president, Burtrice Erick-. Erick-. son, Donetta Erickson, from the Deseret Camp, and Mrs. C. P. Ash-by, Ash-by, of Delta. At 11 a. m. the group assembled at the Escalante monument on the school grounds, where plans for the tour were formulated. A paper written by Richard Morrison, was read, dealing with events leading to erection of, change of site, and chronology of the monument. All were very interestingly portrayed. The second stop of the tour was at Gunnison Bend reservoir, where irrigation facilities of the valley were explained. Next stop was at Oasis for a tour of the Oasis Seed Plant Cooperative, Coopera-tive, followed by a visit to the old Deseret dam site, where waters of the Sevier River were harnessed for pioneer irrigation, and where remnants of the old dam still re- main after almost 100 years of exposure to destructive elements of man and weather. Old Fort Deseret was the next stop, and an original poem by Norman B. Dresser, first editor of the Chronicle, was read, relating the toil and hardships endured by those who 'built and lived by the fort. Mrs. Stephenson related how her grandmother and others had tromp-ed tromp-ed straw with mud for bricks for the fort walls, hastily thrown up as a protection to ward off Indians, who were reportedly j planning an attack on the site of old Deseret. The great lava formations and Devil's Chimney or Sentinel of the Deseret, and Indian pictographs on the surrounding rocks were next toured. The party was told that years ago a sentinel on top of the huge rock had a view of the whole Pahvant valley, and movements of unfriendly Indians could be noted in time to give warning to the small settlements in the valley. The likeness of the profile of the huge rock to that of the Prophet Joseph Smith was also noted. The last stop on the tour was at the site of the Indian massacre of Capt.- Gunnison and others, where a beautiful marker stands, commemorating com-memorating the tragic Incident, which took place just 103 years ago on that day, Oct. 27, 1953. Those making the tour besides those mentioned above were Evan croft, of BYU, who had a hand in olanning the tour, and formerly lived in Deseret; Pres. Gustave O. Larson, Sons of Utah Pioneers, of Springville, and Mrs. Larson; J. Wiley Sessions, state office; Dr. Russell Swensen, history, BYU, and Mrs. Swensen; Dr. Vascoe Tanner, zoology.

Delta Beats Richfield in Last League Game Delta easily defeated a weak Richfield team Friday by a score of 26-0. Delta drew first blood in the game shortly after the kickoff when they blocked a Richfield punt close to the goal Mine. Gary Steele ran the ball over from the 2 yard line to make the score 6-0. Eddie Cole's attempted conversion was wide. Delta scored again near the end of the 1st quarter after Eddie Cole had intercepted a Richfield pass. Larry Wright scored the touchdown Jon a three yard plunge and Cole's conversion made the score 13-0. The Rabbits scored again midway through the 2nd quarter when Gerald Finlinson drove off tackle from the ten. The conversion was missed and the score stood 19,-0 at the end of the half.

The Bible reveals that God's Kingdom has been set up in heaven and the time is up for all wickedness." "There are three reasons why It will be fought," he said. "To pay off the wicked, deliver the righteous, right-eous, and most Important, to prove to the earth and the universe that Jehovah Is the supreme ruler, perfect per-fect in love, justice and wisdom."

We believe that the quality of the citizens' decisions will depend upon the quality of the information which they receive.

ELECTIONS The Seed-Time of DEMOCRACY Next Tuesdpy, November 6, is election day. In many respects it is the most important day of the entire year. It is a time of test of those seeking office. It is also a test of the quality of our citizenship. citizen-ship. Many there are who prattle of their rights as citizens then fail to fulfill the responsibilities upon which those rights are predicated. Elections are truly the seed-time of democracy. WE CAN HAVE THE KIND of government we want extravagant extrava-gant or economical wasteful or efficient wise or foolish. But good government does not come from idle wishing. It must be worked work-ed for and if necessary fought for. The fruits of intelligent and vigorous vigor-ous participation in government are good and the rewards great. The penalties of apathy and indifference indiff-erence are bad and the results perilous. peri-lous. Speak or hold your peace! WE DO WELL TO REMEMBER that a ballot not used is a vote for poor government and that rascals ras-cals are elected by good people who fail to vote. It is not only important im-portant that we vote but also that we vote intelligently. This is the real test of the quality of our demo cracy and the quality of our citizen ship. We must abide by majority rule but majority should be an informed in-formed and wise majority. California Mission A i. ( - Elder J.
