V. Lid diard of Nephi was bitten by his own dog while caring for it while it was sick. That same night the dog escaped from its collar and leash, and after diligent search by the Liddiard family could not be found.

That's been the theme of the annual gamble which the residents of Nephi have been participating in since Brigham Young first sent settlers to this fertile valley. They have been gamblers, not in a sense of laying so many dollars on a gaming table and taking their chances on the fall of the .cards, but they have gambled their very bread and butter from one year to the next on the amount of precipitation that would be received. They have planted each spring, they have hoped and prayed for plenty of moisture to mature the crop and then for perfect harvest seasons in which to glean the fruits of their labors from the fields. Providence has been kind to the farmers of Nephi and vicinity. The land has been fertile, and even with the small amunt of moisture which has some times been available, usually a crop of some kind has been harvested. But . . . there is an old saying "The Lord helps him who helps himself." And now, farmers and land owners of Juab Valley have a chance to help themselves. Being published in this newspaper at the present time are two important notices. The first is a Notice of Special meeting of the Stockholders of the Nephi Ir- rigation Company., and the second is a Notice to Water Users, among wmch are applications for establishment of four reservojrs on the Nephi Irrigation Company system. The stockholders meeting, called for January 12. 1946 ( at 2 P. M. is for the purpose of making an imof portant change in the the company. At the present time, two thirds vote of the stockholders is required for any important business decision, and with more than 2500 shares being outstanding on the company s books, it is nearly impossible to get the necessary number of votes to a meeting to make any major change, or to authorize any major business af fair. The change asked for by the board would make a majority vote necessary, rather than the two-lhirvote. The reservoirs planned are at four sites, one south east of Nephi, two in the bottom of the valley west of Nephi, and the fourth north and east of Nephi. These would be used to yjfpound the early spring runoff, mainly, and make it available for irrigation purposes throughout the later por-ti- n of the summer, when water is seriously needed, and when our present supply is terribly diminished. In the interest of a greater pros, pcrity than has ever been seen before in this area we sincerly hope that all stockholders will see the wisdom of supporting the change of by laws, and will see the desirability of construction of the reservoirs. This, coupled with planned improvements of the canyon stream bed and conveying channels, will give Nephi an irrigation system far superior to anything we have ever had. by-la- ds MARRIAGE Mr. and Mrs. James T.
