The festival, under the direction of the M. I. A. musical directors, J. T. Arbon and Mrs. P. W. Christen-sen- , with their ward assistants, are to be highly complimented on the success attained.

ANNOUNCEMENT ; Mr. and Mrs. Casper Anderson announce the marriage of their daughter, Anna Dorotha, to Kelsey Lee of Mapleton, Utah, in the Salt Lake Temple, Wednesday, February 8th. g ! j i j j j ; Autos and Trains Fail To Get Into Valley : Wednesday A wind commencing at about one o'clock Monday afternoon, accompanied by a light snow whipped into a . furious blizzard by evening and lasted throughout the night, blocking all cross roads and making it difficult to keep the highways open. Tuesday evening a southerly wind reached blizzard proportions lasting up until Wednesday afternoon when a north wind came up filling the roads level with snow and virtually cut off all traffic in the Bear River valley and blocking the main highways out-othe state. The wind was one of the worst in many years. All schools were closed Wednesday and in many sections of the valley it was impossible to travel the roads even with sleighs. As one looked up and down the streets of Tremonton early Wednes day morning and up until noon it looked truly the "Deserted Villiage." The terrific wind had plastered the snow on the business houses and the outer walls until one thought he waa truly in Snowland. Many high school students were unable to return to their homes and found lodgings with their friends and school mates throughout the commu nity. Business men and travelers were compelled to remain in Tremonton, all highways out of town being blocked. Train service on the Malad branch was at a standstill and up until lata Wednesday night had been unable to get into Tremonton. Thursday by the aid of a rotary the train was able to ' go through. The bitter weather that accompanied the storm in the early part of the week was the coldest in years, the thermometer registering 17 degrees below zero. Roads in many directions leading from the city are more like tunnela than highways, there being nearly three feet of snow on the level. f Relief Society Leaders Hold Remodeling Class A very interesting and instructive meeting of leaders of the various ward Relief Societies was held in Tremonton at the L. D. S. Relief Society rooms on Monday, with 30 women present. Miss Izola Jensen home demonstration agent, of Logan, was present and discussed remodeling of clothing from, the standpoint of color, fabric, line, pressing, simplicity of trimmings and alteration of patterns. Many patterns were cut and several ladies displayed remodeled garments and explained why they were remodel- ed.

HOSPITAL NOTES GETTING ONE MILLION JOBS Boy Scouts have again been called upon for service. They have been asked by the National Commander of the t0 PartiPate in an ,rr?n..Le8ri0n to find employment for the idle. The American Legion is asking that each employer add one or more persons to his payroll inasmuch of 999,-99- 9 other employers are being asked to do the same thing. Other plans will follow, but the first object is one million new jobs. As you are reading this, thousands of Boy Scouts are. working. In this connection we can recall with pride the record of fine service made during the war by these Boy Scouts of ours. At the time of th T.ih.rtu Loan campaigns, scouts were not permitted to undertake promotion at the beginning of the drives. lest their ef forts handicap the adults who were nananng the work. Only after it seemed that all the subscriotions that could be secured had been turned in, were these boys called upon. As "gleaners after the reapers," jn the farm Liberty Loans they sold l.Sfi7.i 047 subscriptions, amounting to $278, n.oou, togetner with War Savings stamps to the amount of $42,751,031.-2They distributed over 30,000,000 pieces ef government literature. They located 20,758,000 board feet of standing walnut They rendered Invaluable services to the Red Cross, the War Work Commission and other national organizations, serving the government, and performed countless other services too numerous to mention. This record made by Boy Scouts fourteen years ago is a challange to 5. :x: Mrs. Ray Holdaway gave birth to stillborn twins, a girl and boy, Sunday. Mrs. Wm. C.
