Treasure Hunters Who Were Arrested Thieves Steal Check SUES INSPECTED FOR A ABM Wilford J. Cole and Wllford Bailey from the Nephi city council and H. L. Mangelson, Russell Hawkins. Dr. L. C. Warenski. Spencer E. Forrest and Gerald Cazier of the Nephl Kiwanls Club Inspected a number of available sites suitable for the proposed Utah State Armory which may be erected next year. The matter of Nephl city furnishing a site for the armory was dis cussed at the council meeting last Friday evening, and the above com mittee appointed to cooperate with the Kiwanls Club In going over the various available sites. It is necessary to have a piece of land not less than 90 by 214 feet In size, but it Is suggested that a plat of ground 100 by 214 feet is the more ideal size, giving the space as proposed for the building together with enough room for a driveway and parking space. W. O. Williams, adjutant general of Utah was in Nephi several weeks ago and discussed the possibility of securing an armory building for this city before the member of the Nephl Kiwanls Club. He stated that providing the next state legislature would appropriate sufficient funds for the materials, that actual construction could be done with FERA labor. Because of the fact that plans are now underway for the purchase of the present armory by the Nephl ward, it is deemed necessary that a new armory be built to take care of the needs of the local unit of the national guard. It has been suggested that now is the best time to get the matter underway. IS KEEPING UTAH III UP NATION SALT LAKE CITY Utah's bet ter housing campaigns are keeping step with the rapid pace set by the 3850 Campaign committees in the other parts of the country, according to a statement made today by Allen T. Sanford, State direct or for the Federal Housing Administration. So rapid is the pace that an actual shortage of skilled workers In the building trades exist in some while bank communities, clearings and business generally have increased as the work of modernization has grown. Skilled laborers and contractors, however are by no means the only ones benefitting directly from the Better Housing campaigns, Mr. Sanford pointed out. Building mater ial manufacturers throughout the country are so busy that some have doubled the number of employees on their payrolls, and one lumber company in Massachusetts distribut ed an entire carload of storm win dows in one day "Fatter pay envelopes have stinv ulated business here in Utah as they have throughout the country' Mr. Sanford continued. "Much of the money in the pay envelopes of the people put to work by the Bet ter Housing Campaigns goes very straight to the retail stores. And bank clearings have advanced with the building permits. For instance, Salt Lake City reported a gain of over ten million dollars in bank clearings last month over October 1933 and building permits showed a gain of approximately 260 per cent in number of the same months What is true of Salt Lake City is true in a comparable degree in the smaller cities of the state. The building permits granted In Og-din October of 1934 showed an increase of over 300 per cent over the number of permits granted in October J 933. .The amazing thing about this Modernization campaigns is that work paid for in cash is far greater than the amount financed by the loans,. Mr. Sanford explained. "Neither in Utah nor elsewhere in the United States is the number of modernization loans indicative of the modernization work. The fair ratio is believed to be around four to one, although it ranges from twice as much in some cities to more than ten times as much in others. Based on estimates believed to be accurate, the actual modernization work now under way amounts to over Eighty - eight million dollars, and it is just getting a good start. Checks amounting to approximately one hundred dollars have been cashed in Various towns between her and Wiiinemucca. Nevada by the robbers who sto.e i: BoneviUe Lumber Company check book last Thursday night. The robbers broke into the company's office and stole the check book and several Important papers, and since that time have b"fn financing their way Utah and Nevada. They started cashing the checks at Cedar City, where one for $18 40 was passed. Since that time, two more checks for $16.40 and one for $8.40 and one for $4fl 00 have arrived at the local brink. The checks were cashed at Ploche, Ely, Austin, and Wlnnemucca. All of the checks have been mad-cut to John Rodder, and all but one carried the forced name of John Richardson on the slTnatur? line, O. E. Dornberg's name appearing on that check. The checks have all been returned by the local bank, as Mr. Richardson had all checks stopped as soon as he found out that the book had been taken. ac-cro- ss Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Williams and family of Mills visited at the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Wil-ke- y the week-en- d.

Leaves Contain Organic Matter "The greatest deficiency of western soils is lack of organic matter. Yet thousands of westerners wilfully destroy an excellent source of organic matter each fall," declared Dr. Thomas L Martin, Professor of agronomy and at Brigham Young bacteriolcfcy University, Provo, Utah. A splendid way to secure the the needed matter is to use the leaves that fall by the ton every autumn, he points out. If the leaves are covered in a shallow trench they produce the finest kind of leaf mold to enrich the soil. "But every autumn thouasnds of misguided persons burn this valuable sourvce of fertility," Dr. Martin said. He has for many years preached the proper use of leaves in conservation of fertility.
