"MORE HOMES FOR MORE PEOPLE IN TREMONTON" BEAR RIVER VAL EY LEADER VOLUME X TREMOXTOX CITY, UTAH, THURSDAY, APRIL 23, 1933 WM. RUTENBECK PRAISES UTAH'S REPRESENTATIVES M Talk Delivered by Congressman Murdock On Mining, Printed William Rutenbeck, recently appointed labor adjustor under the NRA with headquarters at Ogden, Utah, was in Tremonton the first of the week. Mr. Rutenbeck has just returned from Washington, where he has been for the past several months before receiving his appointment. Bill is enthusiastic for the representation of this state in the senate and congress at Washington, and particularly Congressman Murdock whom he feels is representing Utah in a most efficient manner. In this, Mr. Murdock's constituents can agree, as he has proven that he is familiar with the needs of his state and has been energetic and consistent in working for them. His broad vision of the mining industry, which is the major industry of the state, is shown in the following address which lie delivered before the house of representatives: Mr. MURDOCK. Mr; Chairman, I move to strike out the last word. In the past 200 years the material world has been virtually remade by man. Emerging from somnolent centuries of relative changelessness, man suddenly awoke to the boundless wealth and power that lay hidden in the earth... .and took possession of them. By utilizing this wealth and h mastered power man has nature. Yesterday he shackled the earth with metal and made it his slave. Today, with metal, he is enslaving air, electricity, and light. The new culture envelops the earth and penetrates to every region, no matter how hitherto desolate and inaccessible. The new culture is a mineral culture. Modern civilization is based, almost entirely, on the use of metals and mineral fuels. The English nation has ranked first among modern nations in wealth and power because it was the first to discover and exploit its mineral resources. The industrial revolution began in England and flourished on coal and iron; it has progressed throughout the world so fast as minerals have been discovered and utilized by other nations. The industrial revolution would have been impossible unless there had first eccurred a revolution in the use of minerals; and without the industrial revolution there could have been no English Empire. Nor would there have been an American Republic with world-wid- e prestige. The Mining Industry in the United States well-nig- 4 That grand old American, Thomas Jefferson, conceived idyllic dreams of an agricultural America separated by an ocean from the turmoil of industry, but he dreamed without even guessing at the fabulous mineral wealth hidden in the American wilderness, and without foresight of the mechanical wonderland of today. How it would have alarmed him if some prophet had revealed to him that the United States and Great Britain, between fhem, would exploit 75 percent of the minerals of the world (V, 391). Not with agriculture, but with industry, our destiny has run, and industry n would be without minerals. "The minerals," says a recent writer, "are the essence of industrialism" (XI. 7). The mineral wealth of the United States is more varied and abundant than that of any other region of the earth. Let us glance at a brief re- -' capitulation of that wealth. The capital investment in the American mineral industry is estimated to bo within twelve and fifteen bliiion dollars (XI, 5), With that investment, in 1929 the United States produced 33 percent of the world's coal, 07 percent of the world's petroleum, Z percent of the world's iron ore, 47 percent of the world's copper, 36 percent of the world's lead, and 42 percent of the world's zinc (XIV, 25). Expressing these facts in different form ,it can be shown that 40 percent of the value of the world's mineral production is produced within our borders; and if we add the minerals produced from sources under the commercial control of the United States, our percentage of the world's total mounts to 50 percent. By the exploitation of mineral fuels and water power, we produce nearly half of the mechanical energy produced in the entire world (V, 391). Statistics on the power and heat sources of the United States disclose that more than 53 percent of our power and heat are derived from coal, and more than 3G percent from oil and gas. In other words, the mining Industry provides us with more than 89 percent of our heat and power, (Continued On Page Six) still-bor- DIES WED.

According to reports, the boy was out playing around the home and had been missed only a short time when his body was found in the cistern. The little fellow had picked up a bucket, which was found in the cistern, and it is believed that he went to the manhole and attempted to reach the water with his bucket and became over balanced. The water was ice cold and approximately 4 feet deep. First aid was administered to him and he was rushed to Tremonton where the pulimeter was used but to no avail. Funeral services were held in the Tremonton ward chapel Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock under the direction of Bishop John Smith. U. P. Bus Service Through Tremonton "Asserting that 'a shrewd and lim ited selection of cities is all that is required to marshall plausible sup port for or against the contention that the domestic rates of municipal electric plants are lower than those of private plants, Dr. Warren M. Per sons, consulting economist, issued recently a report of a comprehensive survey which he said he had made and which he felt afforded a true comparison of rate structures "Dr. Persons was Professor of Economics at Harvard University and at one time was a consultant of the Edison Electric Institute. The present survey, he said, was made on his own initiative. " 'The only satisfactory comparison of rates is a comprehensive one,' he said. "Net monthly bills for 290 municipal plants, including all the more important ones, were computed and verified by the plants concerned. These municipal plants were matched by 290 private plants in cities of corresponding size and location.' "Dr. Persons summarizes as follows bills for a monthly consumption of sixty kilowatt-hour- s paid by customers of 290 municipal plants, usually and the corresponding 290 private plants, not tax exempt. 290 municipal plants, median bill, tax-exem- $3.59. 290 $3.77.

That is to say, the rates in the rate blocks of the schedules of the private companies decline more rapidly as use increases, than do those of the municipal plants.' "Dr. Persons said the 290 municipal plants served cities with an aggregate population of 5,900,000 in the United States, or a coverage of 62 per cent of the total population of 9,500,00 served by municipal plants. The 290 private plants also serve a population of about 6,000,000, but inasmuch as a population of about 74,000,000 is served by private plants, the coverage ratio Is smaller. "In order to check the data further for accuracy, Dr. Persons extended his survey of private rates to 4S8 cities with a population of 50,000.000 served by private plants and to 1.048 smaller communities to which the same rates are available, with a population of about 6,000,000 or an aggregate amounting to 88 per cent of the population of all cities and towns in the United States of 2,500 population or more.

This meeting was the final program of the present organization, with Mrs. Rosa Hunsaker as president, and T. A. Meldrum as vice president, the school year of the P. T. A. ending this month. Dr. Pederson pointed out the neceswith the sity of parents teachers if the student is to receive the full benefits of the educational institutions which they attend and illustrated by concrete example of had where the proper been given students were able to accomplish much more than those where this cooperation was lacking. His message, was greatly appreciated and was one of the most common sense talks dealing with the relationship of parents, teachers, and students that has even been delivered in this community, Much good i3 expected to result from the same. Other numbers that made up the program that were unusual in interest and quality were: A chorus by the lady teachers of the school, a musical reading by LaVon Spencer, accompanied by Mrs. Quinney, an Easter reading by Mrs. R. D. Anderson, a clarinet solo by Junior England, accompanied by his mother, and a trom bone solo by Mr. Conn of the U. A. C. The program was conducted by Vice President T. A. Meldrum. The P. T.

Utah Wheat Farmers to Vote on Referendum Shall the government wheat adjustment program be extended through 1936 to 1939 with some modifications, is the question that will be asked of all wheat growers in the United States on May 25, according to a re cent announcement received by Direc tor William Peterson from the Agri cultural Adjustment Administration. Plans in every wheat growing state are being made to fully inform all wheat growers on the present world wheat situation, to encourage discussion of the problem, and finally to per mit each grower to register his own opinion on the subject in a national referendum. Some of the provisions of the new proposed wheat program are: (1) voluntary contracts calling for adjustment to meet consumption needs and export possibilities during the crop years 1936 through 1939, (2) additional emphasis or inducements to shift land to grass in drought and dust storm areas, (3) amount of adjustment and rate and condition of benefit payments to be determined each year, but no adjustment to involve reduction of more than 25 per cent of individual base acreage, and (4) the base period to remain the same as in the present program. The final details of the proposed wheat program are not available yet. according to William Peterson, but will be announced soon, he states, by county agents and wheat allotment committees who will be called upon to direct the referendum In their respective counties. Total benefit payments to Utah farmers who signed up in wheat production control program had reached $1,054,044.55 on February 28, the last date for which figures are available. ATTENTION BEE KEEFEHS Bee keepers and farmers who keep bees. Now is the time to inspect your colonies for dead hives, and all dead hives found should be plugged up tight to prevent robbing by other bees and in this way helping to control the spread of American foul brood. Any further information may be had by writing to V. D. Justcsen, Deweyville, county bee inspector. RECENT BIRTHS ,, I MANNING Mr. and Mrs. Jim Manning, a boy, born April 23, at home.
