"MORE HOMES FOR. MORE PEOPLE IN TREMONTON" BEAR IYER VALLEY LEAD VOLUME X NUMBER TREMONTON CITY, UTAH, THURSDAY, MAY 16, 1933 Wilson Lumber Co. To Have Opening of Their New Building LION OFFICIALS FROM HYRUM VISIT HERE Lions Club to Tender vitation for P. F. C. to Be Established Here In- Deputy District Governor Cantril Nielson, and H. P. Anderson, president-elect of the Hyrum Lions club, were the guest speakers at the regular Lions club luncheon held at the Midland Hotel Wednesday evening. Mrs. George Quinney and Archie Richardson furnished the musical numbers which were greatly appreciated and loudly applauded by the club members. Lion Nielsen directed his remarks to encouraging the Lions to attend the district convention to be held in June at Richfield and Lion Anderson spoke of the benefits and accomplishments of Lions olubs and their value to communities. A matter of importance was discussed relating to the Production Finance corporation .which in all probability will be established in Box Elder county. Lion T. E. Adams gave an outline of the set-ustating that its purpose was to finance the farmers for their labor, seed, and interest payments that fall due before harvest time. In the discussion it was brought out that should this office be set up in Tremonton it would prevent the coming of a commercial bank to this city. However, it was felt that the bank would be established in the county and that; Tremonton was the logical place for such a bank and therefore the Lions club felt that they should cooperate with this farm! movement and a motion was put fa- voring the establishment of a bank( and the agricultural committee of the club were instructed by unanimous vote to tender the proper authorities: an invitation to bring the P. C. A. to this city and to assure them of the Lions club's cooperation in the movement. p, Lester Newton Dies Following Injury to Foot by Ditcher Lester Newton, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Newton of East Tre monton, died at the Valley hospital! this morning (Thursday) at 8:30 of gas gangrene, which resulted from an injury to his foot which he received' Priday of last week.

The first big fact is that our former large export market continues to be small. Foreign countries have placed high tariffs and quotas against our wheat. Our own tariffs against foreign goods have also made it difficult for foreign countries to buy our wheat. Every effort is being made to increase export markets, but this is a slow process. Second, is the fact that world prices are not materially higher. Our two short crops have kept us on a domestic price basis. Unrestricted production in the face of the world situation, would cause our prices to reach their previous depressed position. Third, there is still enough wheat land available to produce bumper crops and surpluses. Drought caused heavy losses, but farmers do not ex pect drought every year. Fourth, domestic consumption of wheat remains relatively constant Efforts are being made to improve the quality and appeal of bakery pro ducts. Use of wheat for livestock feed is ordinarily increased only when wheat is cheap in relation to other crops. Fifth, farmers are protected, thru the adjustment payments on their do mestic allotments, against low world export prices. If we had been on a world price basis during the last year, it is estimated that our farm prices would have been 30 to 35 cents a bushel under what they actually were. Sixth, the drought, while solving some of the immediate surplus probF. lems, has not changed the fundamenU. S. A.
