We learned how to treat a girl on a date. To help her get seated at the dinner table. To gently hold her arm to assist her up on the curb and always to walk on the outside when going down the sidewalk.

Although the park has been open for several months, landscaping and recreation areas remain incomplete. Mobile homes are classified as personal property instead of real property, making interest rate and ownership more expensive.

Especially we were taught to recognize the finger bowl. Later, this served us well. Before graduation we found that we had a little money in the class treasury. We invited the Junior Class to a formal banquet. The Junior and Senior boys did ; ‘Well. None drank from the’ finger bowl and we knew what all of that silver was for. We also learned to iron our shirts and press our pants.

The local labor force has Just about been exhausted, and future employees will be recruited from other areas. The quality of housing in the area is a definite factor in determining the quality of employees that the company will be able to attract. Affordable housing in the Milford area would also bring demand for additional services to fill up the vacant store fronts on Main Street. David Rogers, Assistant Vice President and Manager of the area First Security Mortgage Division, says the homes... priced under $79,000...qualify for the Utah Housing CHAMP program. First-time home buyers can become home owners with almost nothing down and a payment which, in most cases, is lower than rent. The project, however, may be on a dead end street.
