Since the building of the Valley Hospital the public have waited and expected to see what has just happen ed, in the interests and for the best good of the general public served by these physicians. The valley is fortunate in having competant medical and sergical doctors but have long felt that there was not the proper cooperation between them for the general welfare of the public and therefore will be pleased with the new arrangement. People visiting the community are astonished to find such a splendid equipped and hospital as we have. This institution is large enough to properly care for the needs of the valley at the present and for many years to come, with normal growth and development of the coun try considered. To have such an institution is a great benefit to those who have their loved ones in it, as they can be at home and still give the proper attention to the ones confined in the hospital, which is a great saving in expense, as well as being able to get the best of care possible as only graduate nurses work in connection Under the leadership of Park Stumm with the doctors. the South Tremonton Club, with a membership of 19, is doing big things.

A very enthusiastic meeting devel oped from the gathering and many toolc the opportunity to discuss con ditions in their respective districts with the view of bringing them before the school board this coming Friday, when a large delegation proposed call ing on the school board. Not since the time when the people were waging their fight for a high school in the valley has there been such interest taken in school matters and it is felt that good will surely result from the patrons interesting themselves m school matters and go ing before the board for discussion of ' them. A central committee, consisting of Senator Tracy Welling, Bishop D. Mil ton Marble, Bishop Victor L. Hansen, Mrs. J. A. Pack and Mrs. Ezra Pack er, was chosen for the purpose of perfecting organizations in each district and directing the work outlined with relation to the matters that should be brought before the board. One-- person was also named in each community to visit every home and inform the patrons of the plans with the purpose of receiving an expression as to their attitude with relation to them and if favorable to the actions to be present at the meeting with the board members Friday. The meeting was presided over by Mrs. Pack, President of the parent- teachers organization, who invited Dr, Luke to take charge of the discussion and organization of the plans during the meeting.

A report of the past three months business was read by Manager C. J. Dewey and was in the face of these depressed times very encouraging to the officials. The report showed an increase of business of 16 per cent over the same period for last year. Other items pertaining to the company business were equally encouraging to the directors. Ray Barrett and Wife Here Visiting Friends Ray Barrett, formerly assistant cashier of the Tremonton Banking Co. and now private secretary to Congress man Don B.

A. Pierce, general superintendent of the Union Pacific Railroad; R. E. Brooks, superintendent of the Utah Division; G. W. Price, assistant general passenger agent; John L. Amos, assistant traffic manager and J. R. Horsley, traveling" freight agent, were in Tremonton Tuesday in the interests of the railroad and paid" the Lealer Office a pleasant call.' These high railroad officials are visiting the dis tricts served by their company in the West for the purpose of learning if the service rendered by their company is satisfactory and the general senti ment of the people with respect to the "Ship and Travel by Rail" campaign that is being sponsored by the em ployees of the Union Pacific railroad. Thoroughly awakened to the serious ness of the railroad situation through loss of business to unregulated forms of transportation, employes of the Un ion Pacific, is a sincere spirit of self defense, are organizing in an effort to recover this lost business, and bring it back to the rails. In every city and town served by the Union Pacific, this organization is taking the form of Employee Boosters leagues. Collectively, in the State of Utah, these leagues will include approximately 4,327 employes representing 2.975 families who, in 1930, re ceived nearly eight million dollars in wages and salaries. This huge sum was expended in Utah and supported a total of more than 18,056 citizens of this state. Part of it was spent with merchants. Another portion was paid out by the em ployes in the form of taxes on their homes, because 1.971 homes are owned by employes of the U P. Still other portions of it were deposited in banks, where it was employed in usual bank ing operations to build other business in the state. Using these figures and facts to demonstrate that the Union Pacific is one of the state's basic industries, and as such entitled to the support of other industries vitally interested in the welfare of this nearly eight million dollar consumer market which the Union Pacific employees represent, their organization is asking for fair consideration at the hands of shippers through the promotion of a ".Ship and Travel by Rail" campaign. They are asking merchants and others whom they .patronize to reciprocate by pa tronizing the railroad, instead of other carriers which are taking much business from railroads. either the of intention not the is It railroad company itself nor of the employees thru their own organization, to attempt to abolish motor truck transportation, according to sponsors of the League and officials of the com pany. They realize that the motor truck fills a very definite transportation need, and has a big field of its own which has only the effect of making business better for both the railroad and the truckers. The rail service of the Union Pacific is adequate and dependable and it is the purpose of the Union Pacific employees, backed by their company to regain the business lost to competing truck lines paralleling the railroads and which handle the cream of its traffic. This action is being taken to promote railroad employment and stabilization of the railroad industry. In all fairness and equity shippers adjacent to the Union Pacific can well afford to patronize the rail lines, and further, supporting the employees by a "Ship and Travel by Rail" campaign, the Union Pacific is running a series of advertisements setting forth the pertinent facts concerning the Union Pacific and Utah. . Liberty Theatre Front Receives New Finish B. F. Winzeler, progressive manager of the Liberty Theatre, has during the past week put an altogether different appearance on the front of his show house.
