"MORE HOMES FOR MORE PEOPLE IN TREMONTON" ( BEAR RIVEE YALLEY LEADER VOLUME X TREMONTON CITY, UTAH, THURSDAY, APRIL 18, 1933 LIONS HEAR DR. jap Speaker Spreads Hope and Encouragement to Listeners; Good Musical Numbers Are Enjoyed The spirit of Lionism, friendliness, fellowship and service radiated the large banquet rooms, that were filled almost to capacity with members of the Lions club, their wives and guests Wednesday evening in the Ladies' Night program presented. The club had for its guests, Dr. Adam S. Bennion, assistant to the general manager of the Utah Power Light Co., L. W. Nims, district manager of the Utah Power & Light, and their wives, Principal C .E. Smith, of the Bear River high school, Mark Nichols and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Quinney, and the athletic squad of the Bear River high school. Lion President Guy Johnson presided and opened the program with a brief address of welcome, then turned the gavel to James Walton, who acted as master of ceremonies. The guest speaker of the evening as Dr. Adam S. Bennion, who took fot his subject, "Overhauling Civilization." Dr. Bennion is a delightful speaker, who portrays sincerity and enthusiasm in what he says. With a trend of humor and soberness which makes his addresses profoundly imSuch was pressive and interesting. the address to which some hundred persons listened with rapt interest. Some of the high lights of his talk are here presented: He said, "Let us bring civilization into the garage of experience; lift up its hood and examine it," and then he proceeded to analayze conditions and set forth some principles upon which one may safely judge or examine. He pointed out that these radical men who would change our form of government into a new order of things and who apparently are not satisfied have nev er intimated that they would leave this land and go to another. "It is a land of promise, it is full of hope, and it is not all bad, as some would make you believe," he said. "It is a land that offers opportunity to the pauper as much as to the king. Any man can set his goal and ideal and go out and accomplish it. It depends entirely upon the man. The opportunity is here," he said. The quality of the men and women V jtvbo built this country can it again. This in not the first time that this country has been in peril and in a depressed condition. And each time, by the fortitude and courage of its citizens, they have triumphed. He said, there are four kinds of people: First, those who don't care; second, those who want to let things remain as they are and not disturb them; third, those who would set up a new order of things; and fourth, the kind to whom he was addressing his remarks. They would ask soberly for the facts, willing to set down and calmly think things out. Some of the things which he indicated needed overhauling were: crime, the divorce evil, in which he said 25 of all marriages went on the rocks; the crowding of our population into big centers, unemployment, old age security, and the disparity of earnings. He said we did not need a new scheme of government but listed a few suggestions for overcoming the present conditions: Of unemployment he said, "Let the employer and employee mutually set up a reserve fund from which they could draw in a crisis and such a fund vpuld also be built for old age security for savings; greater mutuality between employer and employee so that one should not roll in wealth at the expense of the other and at the same time with proper recognition in compensation for genand that each man ius and ' should ability to help sustain the gov-- ( pay ern ment in terms of what he earns.. ( "Our government is in the garage )for overhauling and all should buckleof in, join hands and find a way out it without passing the responsibility on to the government." he said. After discussing the phases of pre- vailing conditions, their problems and solutions, as suggested above, he said f he was happy to say that the major indexes which points to prosperity are: Freight loadings, production of steel, production of textiles ,auto manufacturing, building contracts let and bank clearings and that all are substantially up. He closed with this challenge: 102 pilgrims landed on American shores. After the first winter there were only 55 surviving, but they builded a civilization. There was no turning back nor loss of heart. Courage made Plymouth into history and will make Tremonton or any other place into re-bli- ! history.

COOKE, NOXIOUS WEED TO BE RESUMED 86, DIES MONDAY A meeting with farmers of this community was held Sunday afternoon by A. H. Blanchard, district inspector relative to contin1 uation of the fight against noxious weeds during the summer. On Sunday evening another meeting of similar nature was held in Howell, 15 miles west of Tremonton, by Mr. Blanchard. Mr. Blanchard will carry on the white top weed fight started by the former district inspector, Bion Farmers of Hansel valley, valley and Blue Creek valley attended the meetings. The weed, it is said, first made its appearance in this territory severtl years ago and was brought by cattle being driven from Idaho south to Promontory, Utah. The fight against white top was started last summer after several miles of territory had been quarantined. The weed is killed by "clean cultivation" by use of a tractor-drawn outfit which cuts all vegetation at the root. The cost Is borne partly by the county of Box Elder and partly by land owners. Tol-ma- n. Po-catel- lo Local Students Are Honored For High Scholarship OF OLD AGE Early Utah Pioneer's Useful Career Ended Ann M. Cooke "Grandma," 86, early Utah pioneer, passed away Monday morning at the home of her son, Geo S. Cooke, two miles south of this city. Death was due to disability incident to old age. Ann Maria Fawson Cooke was born Feb. 27, 1849 at Coventry, War, England. In 1864 her mother, who had been left a widow .with four children, emigrated from England to Utah, bringing with her her children. After arriving in America, they went to Nebraska and from there started their journey westward across the plains. When part way across the mother died. The deceased was then but 15 years of age. After arriving in Utah, she went to Grantsville and hired out to work for her keep. In December 1865 she married Charles M. Cooke and was sealed in the Endowment house two years later. She is the mother of seven children, two of whom survive her: Geo. Sanford and James. She also has 36 grandchildren and 58 great grandchildren. The deceased was one of the sturdy pioneers who never lost sight of the purpose for which she came to Zion and remained true and faithful to her faith and the responsibilities as a member of the Latter Day Saint church. In the history of her life she tells of listening to the addresses of President Brigham Young and each succeeding president down to and including President Heber J. Grant. In this same account of her life, she testifies that the Lord has blessed her greatly, for which she rendered grateful thanks. Her life has been an eventful one, filled with hardships and many varied experiences. In her passing, she leaves a record of service and fidelity as a rich heritage to the posterity who survive her. Funeral services were held this afternoon (Thursday) at 2 o'clock in the ward chapel. SALT LAKE CITY. Four Box Elder county students are included among the 272 University of Utah students who received grades giving them high honor standing for the winter quarter classes at the university .according to an announcement made by E. J. Norton, recorder. In recognition of their superior work, these students have been award ed honor cards. The cards are given only to students who have received a 2.5 average or higher, which average is equivalent to a grade of "A" in half of their classes, and at least a grade n of the other half of their courses. The cards are awarded only to undergraduates and to advanced students in the Schools of Law and Medicine who have not received their bachelor's degree. This is the largest number ever to receive honor cards, according to Mr. Norton, and is an increase of nearly 20 per cent over the number of cards issued at the end of the fall quarter.

Swanger Will m wuj yTHi NUMBER THIRTY-ON- E CONTRACTS LET FOR IMPROVING John E. Swanger who will address WATER SYSTOI tive of Missouri. He began his activities with the Woodmen in Utah in 1917 when he was appointed state manager of Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico with headquarters in Salt Lake. In 1919 he was transferred to Texas as state manager of that state.' In 1$25 he was made superintendent of the Modern Woodmen sanitarium for tuberculosis members at Woodmen, Colo. He has acted in that capacity since that time. Aside from being superintendent, Mr. Swanger has been used very extensively as a national lecturer. He has traveled in every state in the interest of the society and he never fails tt draw a large crowd where ever he goes. He is an exceptional story teller, has a great personality and never fails to interest his listeners Before taking up active duties with the Modern Woodmen he was in politics in, Missouri. He served two terms as Secretary of State and three as bank commissioner. He made the race for governor but was 'defeated as St. Louis regarded him as a "dry." He had the reputation of making more speeches for the Woodmen than any unofficial member, before he took up active duties with the society. He has a lot of friends in Utah and says he is always pleased to return to this state When the opportunity affords. The local Camp feel that it is very fortunate in securing the services of Mr. Swanger at this time and are extending invitations to the people of this community to hear him.

PLAN "Better Homes Week" April 00 - 1 Corn-Ho- g Control Ass'n For 1935 Organized The contract was let at a special meeting of the city council held Monday evening. The bid was some less than the lowest bid made two weeks previous, when they were all rejected by the council as being too high. The material to be used will be furnished by R. Hardesty company of Salt Lake City, who were the lowest bidders on the material. Lewis Jones Attorney represented the city at the meeting. According to the city officials, work will be commenced immediately under the direction of C. O. Roskelley, PWA engineer. It is believed by the city officials that the supply of water will be increased considerable, as investigation in the past has revealed the fact that leaky pipes were causing a considerable loss of water. The new reservoir which is being erected by Samuel Shrenk, under the relief measures, will also add to the supply and the quality of the water. As heretofore, the reservoir was located some distance from the supply of water, which was piped a distance of one mile from the supply and was then emptied into a reservoir, which was set on top of the ground. The water in the summer time became warm due to this condition. It is understood that local help will be used where possible in this work.- to - County Treasurer Gives Interesting Tax Information According to Owen L. Brough, county treasurer, for the year 1934 there were 1236 pieces of property that went delinquent and from this delinquentcy is shown a very interesting picture. Out of the 1236 pieces of property the taxes out of 93 were less than one pieces or 7.5 dollar on each piece; on 88 pieces or 7.1, the taxes 'were less than two dollars and more than one dollar for each; on 53 pieces or 4.3, the taxes were less than three dollars and more than two dollars each; and 69 pieces or 5.6 were less than four dollars and more than three on each piece; on 67 pieces or 5.4, were less than five dollars and more than four dollars on each piece; on 496 pieces or $25 40.1, the taxes were less than and and more than five on each piece; on 370 pieces or 30, the taxes were over $25 on each piece. This reveals of the pieces of the fact that 70 property that went delinquent for 1934, the taxes were less than $25. As soon as the property went delinquent the cost and redemption fees were $1.00 and two per cent penalty, 8 per cent per annum on each piece whether the tax is one dollar or $100, which makes it expensive on property where the tax is smalL .
