From 6:30 until midnight there was not a minute that was not filled with something of interest and pleasure, for every- one in attendance. During the banquet music was fur-- j nished by an instrumental trio consisting of Miss Mary Burnsr-Harr- y Woodward and Wesley Gephart. The crowd was in a pleasant mood and even when the lights went out, not once but twice, the people seemed to figure that they had come out for a good time and were not to be denied it. At this point and in the dark the Senator from Sandpit made his appearance. He sang a number of songs and gave burlesque readings that put the crowd in an uproar. The banquet was one of the best ever served on any occasion, steaming hot and a variety suitable to any taste or notion. Six long tables, five of which were the entire length of the large gymnasium, the sixth being half the length, were filled to capacity and then some of them filled again to accommodate those who came a little late. After the banquet all were invited to the auditorium and while preparations were being made for the play that was to follow, a program consisting of two readings by Mary Gad-di- e of Garland, violin solo by Harry Woodward, accompanied by Miss Mary Burns of Tremonton,, and a ladies' quartette, composed of Mrs. O. L. Brough and daughter Augusta and Mrs. O. A. Seager and daughter Mildred of East Tremonton, and a cornet solo by Wesley Gephart of Tremonton. The Senator from Sandpit then took the platform and proceeded to deliver some stump speeches and sing some of his parodies to the delight and amusement of the audience." A brief time was allotted at this point to hear a few remarks from President Ephriam Bergeson of the State Farm Bureau, Senator Tracy R. Welling, Robert H. Stewart, county agent, who during his remarks presented the winner of the scholarship and the alternate and a word of response was heard from each. The winner was Howard Capaner pf Riverside and Miss Mildred of East Tremonton was the alternate. President Leland J. Hansen of the North Box Elder County Farm Bureau took a few minutes then to present a matter of business pertaining to the incorporating of the organization and called for a proposal on the same. O. A. Seager of East Tremonton spoke on the point and made a motion that the North Box Elder County Farm Bureau be incorporated. The motion was duly seconded and President Hansen called for remarks and a vote, asking only those who held membership to vote. The motion carried unanimously. The play "Only a Decade" was then presented by the Extension Service of Cache county. It showed the old and new methods of farming and what organization and cooperation will do for agriculture. Not the least was the scene that brought home the fact that the boy should have a share in the profits of the farm, as well as in the work. And that the day when the boy will be satisfied with his calf becoming dad's cow is past. After the play President Hansen announced that the people could take their choice between a picture show in the auditorium or they could go down to the gym and dance. The crowd divided aibd soon the ball room was filled. The Balladeers furnished the music and old and young mingled in the hours that followed, the end of which marked, perhaps, the most successful social in the ten years of this organization.

C. Harris Feb. 14. The special feature of this meeting was to celebrate the birthday anniversary of Mrs. Ann Maria Gook, whom the Daughters of the Pioneers lovingly call "Grandma" Cook. Grandma Cook was 80 years of age on Feb. 27. She crossed the plains in an ox team company when she was seven years old, walking most of the way. Her mother died on the journey, thus leaving Mrs. Cook and her sister at the mercy of friends. Grandma Cook greatly pleased the members of the camp by singing two old favorite songs and relating experiences of her early pioneer life. Delicious refreshments were served by the hostess and Grandma Cook was given presents by members of the camp. Although having attained the age of four score years, Grandma Cook is still cfuite active and happy and rejoices in the association of many friends who love and revere her. The Leader rejoices in extending sincere wishes for many more happy birthday anniversaries for Grandma Cook. PRICE OF BEETS AS AGREED UPON IS $7 MINIMUM Tariff Increase Believed Essential for Welfare of Beet Industry An agreement to grow sugar beets this season for the minimum price of $7.00 per ton was reached at a meeting of the sugar manufacturers and representatives of the sugar beet growers, held last Saturday at the office of the Utah State Farm Bureau in the Dooly building in Salt Lake City. A prepared statement issued by the association says: "Last year the board felt that the beet growers would be justified in asking for a $7.50 minimum for 1929, but after extensive investigation and study it was decided that the price of sugar and the general condition of the industry would not justify more than $7.00." The minimum price, it is pointed out, "is not vitally important, since the contract also provides for a participation in the profits by the on a 50 per cent basis," the statement added. Continuing, the statement says: "At the present time the price of sugar, net to the manufacturer, is $4.40 a hundred, while it would take a 17.5 per cent oeet and a net price of $5.50 to iustifv the 7.50 minimum, it xuaa decided. If the price of sugar rises 10 $o.ou ana the saccharine tests 17.5 per cent the beetgrower will receive $7.50 Der ton regardless of the mini. mum guarantee, the contract provides. "It was conceded at the meeting mat tne variation in the minimum price paid during the last two years and paid now is unfortunate, and an effort is being made on the part of both the association and the manufacturers to correct the condition as soon as possible. "The beet association, the Utah State Farm Bureau and other organizations are working to obtain an increase in the sugar tariff, feeling that it is essential to the welfare of the If they succeed, it was industry." said, the nrice of suirar will nndnnhf. edly be advanced and the beetgrower wnj receive more lor nis Deets. . OF LIBRARIAN SHOWS FOR DRUG STORE GROWTH Families J. 0. Wallace of Soda Patronize. Library; Springs, Ida., Enters Fiction Favored Local Field Many Rural That the Tremonton public library is serving well its purpose can be fully justified by glancing over the annual report, a part of which we give below. The report shows that during the year the library has been open to the public 301 days, and during that time it has had an adult circulation of 4642 and for children 2353, or a total of 6995. Out of this number of the total circulation it might be interesting to note the adult fiction was 438G. It is also interesting to note that during tne year there were 884 country borrowers, that is to say, there were that number living outside of the city limits who availed themselves of the opportunity of the use of book found in' the library. The total number of books now in the library is 2788. As we understand it there is a law that permits county commissioners to make a levy of so much per capita on what is termed country borrowers, in this way help the city to maintain a library that will serve all who care to patronize it. At a recent meeting of the Tremonton library board a committee was appointed to look nito this supposedly law and see what can be done in the way of getting help to enlarge our library. Poultry Producers in New Location n Owing to the fact that the building, now occupied by the Utah Poultry Producers assocaition, has been leased to another party, and also that the lease held by the association was just temporary, they now find it necessary to secure other quarters. We understand they have secured a portion of the Farmers Cash Union warehouse room and basement and that shortly after the first of March will move to their new location. At the rate business has increased the last few weeks officers of the association are confident it will not he a great while until new quarters will be built to handle their business. Wal-dro- Ward Welling Leaves Shortly For Mission A deal between Thomas Waldron of this city and J. 0. Wallace of Soda Springs, Idaho, was closed last Monday whereby Mr. Wallace secured a five-yelease on the west half of the Waldron building. Mr. Wallop is a druggist of many years experience and we understand that he intends to stock of merput in an chandise and fixtures and become a worthy part of the business section of our thriving little city. Mr. Wallace, when commenting on his decision to locate in Tremonton, stated that a former business man of Tremonton had recommended very highly Tremonton as a good business town. , We understand that Mr. Wallace did not come to this decision hastily but for some time past has quietly and in his own way investigated the possibilities of the community and that his decision to come to Tremonton is based on facts he has secured for himself. We believe that Mr. Wallace's decision to locate in this city will later prove to him that Tremonton is a good place in which to live and also a good business town. The merchants of this city are public spirited and are known for their fair dealing and honesty of purpose and the people have come to know this and their patronage has been in the spirit of friendliness and cooperation, as well as being aware that they will get value received for every dollar spent here. We welcome Mr. Wallace to our community and glad to note the addition of one more s business to our city. ar te - first-clas- Clarence R. Anderson Marries Thatcher Girl Bishop and Mrs. A. N.

The minimum price per ton for 1929 will be $7.00 per ton. The balance of the contract will remain the same as for 1928. The board, when this matter was first gone into early in 1928, felt that the beet growers would probably be justified in asking for a $7.50 minimum for 1929, but after extensive investigation and study, the board decided that the price of sugar and the general condition of the industry, would not justify more than $7.00 at the present time. The minimum price is not so important, due to the fact that the contract provides for a participation in the profits by the growers on a 0 basis. At the present time the price of Rugar, net to the manufacturer, is while it would take a $1.40 cwt., 17.50 beet with sugar netting $5.50 to justify a $7.50 price for beets. If the price of sugar goes up to $5.50 and the saccharine tests 17.50 the beet grower will get $7.50 per ton regardless of the minimum guarantee. All concede that the variation in the minimum price paid during the last two years and being paid now is unfortunate and an effort is being made on the part of both the association and the manufacturers to straighten this matter up as soon as 50-5- possible. Since June 25, 1928, there has been a decline in the price of sugar of $1.30 cwt. This fact was a large factor in negotiating the contract this year. As the contract is based to a large extent on the base price of sugar it would be mipossible to pay more for MAKES GENEROUS GIFT TO COUNCIL Earnings of Past Years Offered for Builiding of Public Library J A letter from the retiring officers of the Ladies' Economic club of this city, addressed to the mayor, is of such importance to the community that we will print it for the general information of the public. In June, 1914, this clifb was organized under the direction of Miss of the U. A. C. The first officers included Mrs. Harry Gephart, president; Mrs. Alvin Keller and Mrs. A. F. Frisby, vice presidents. There were 85 charter members. One of their first efforts for civic improvement was the establishment of a reading room. This was accomplished and later turned into a small library. The club worked hard and faithfully for the maintenance of this library and did maintain it until 1918, when a tax was secured for its upkeep. Thsough all the years since the organization of the club it has had one object in view, which is stated in the letter, namely, to establish a reading room and libarry of which any community could be proud. ;f Those of us who have lived in this community realize the work that has been necessary to attain the success that has marked their efforts, and the determination required in putting over the festivals and other activities to raise funds with which to realize their ideals. It is one of the most worthy and unselfish acts that any organization or group of citizens could perform. It is to be hoped that when the mayor, with the council and library board, formally acknowledge the receipt of this generous offer, that they will receive it in the same spirit and determination that characterized its givers and carry on to a successful conclusion this important project as started by this worthy organization. Following is the letter: When the Economic club was organized in June, 1914. one of its main objectives was a public library and reading room for ' Tremonton and vicinity. this movement "They . fostered through many discouragements until 1918, when the library tax was secured, at which, time the club turned over to the city 945 volumes." The Economic club has continued to hold a devoted Interest in the growth and efficiency of this institution and are not unmindful of ita present needs. Therefore, this is to officially notify you that at the close of the year's work, the Economic club unanimously voted to give the City Library board $3000 to be used in building a permanent home for the library. The money to remain in th Economics treasury, to be drawn by order when needed for work or mate- rial. Work to start within six months. MRS. FRED C. GEPHART, Pres. Mrs. FRANK D ALTON, Sec. ne " . ' Bear River City 1929 Program Is Outlined Last Friday a number of the citizens of Bear River City, the local Farm Bureau officers, A. M. Reeder, president of South Box Elder County Farm Bureau, and County Agricultural Agent Stewart met and worked out the local program of work for the year 1929. Very much interest was manifest, and a program, consisting of poultry disease control, care, housing, and feeding of poultry; several phases of dairy work; Boys' and Girls club work, and a four months' course on Children's Literature was worked out. J. L. Weidmann was chosen chairman of the poultry project; Geo. Gardner, chairman of the dairy project; Leon Jensen, chairman of the . Boys' club project; Mrs. Victoria Johnson, chairman of the Girls' club project, and Mrs. Abbie G. Jensen, chairman of the Children's Literature work.

The beet association, the Utah State Farm Bureau, and other organizations are working to secure an increase in the tariff on sugar. If they succeed, the price of sugar will be advanced and the beet growers will receive more for their beets. It is felt by all concerned that an increase in the tariff is essential to the welfare of the industry. Your local board of directors insisted that a clause be inserted in the contract as follows: If a tariff of one cent or more be added to the tariff on sugar per pound, the growers should receive a minimum guarantee of $7.50 per ton for beets. This was turned down by the manufacturers. Under the existing conditions, we would advise our growers to use their own judgment as to how many acres of beets they plant this year.
