Darker, speaker it Chamber of Commerce Mining Committee rneetng Friday.., . , Mr. Barker gave statistics ehowing that about 90 per cent of the red me-tal produced In Utah comes from the mine of the Utah Copper Company and this production represents about h of the production of the entire United qiates. The number of employees on the payrolls of the state, eald Mr. Barker, 1 averaged about 3300 men at an annu-al expense of $6,000,000. The people directly supported by its employees I number 15,000. j To serve 15,000 peo-- pie, composing the families of cojn-- I jpany employees, who gain their live-- I llhood directly from company pay. 1 checks, It takes 10,000 more. The I monthly labor and supply bill totals I $1,250,000 or $15,OOCT,000 annually. " . I TAX TOTAL LARGE, f Subtract this from the state's annu I al income, and a considerable hole 1 would be left, which would affect ad- - ) Tersely the farmer, the coal miner, ' I the storekeeper, railroads, power and I the telephone companies, doctors, I i lawyers and dentists, teacher and ; bankers and every line of business I and Industry. Mr. Barker then launch- - I i ed on the subject of taxation: , "Utah Copier's proportion of the ! state's general property tax amounts t t to approximately 5 per cent of the ; i whole. In Salt Lake county, inclua- - ' I tag the city of Salt Lake, its propor-- I j tlon is 12.98 per cent of the whole, i ' IThs means that one-eight- of the t I county's part of the maintenance of "V schools, roads, and Improvements Is paid by the Utah Copper. Exclusive ' to Salt Lake, Utah Copper pays 45.75 i per cent of the county's burden. In ? the Jordan school district, Its share i is 70.28 per cent. In other words, the Utah Copper pays 70 cents on every ." ' ' dollar expended to educate 5,763 pu- - ptls in this district." - ; POWER BILL ENORMOUS. . . Electrical energy consumption of . f the Utah Copper, Mr. Barker said, V i amounted to 234,000,000 k. w. hours ' annually. Annual consumption of ,, commodities by Utah Copper employs aggregates 1,090,795 quarts of milk, 1,115,000 pounds of fresh meat, 228,. 425 pounds of butter and cheese, 57,-55- 1 pounds of lard, . 195,273 dozen eggs, ,081,346 pounds of flour and meal, 446,892 pounds of sugar, 56,489 pecks of fruit, 986,267 pounds of fresh I vegetables, not Including the coal 1 1 and fuel and other commodities con- - sumed.. Utah Copper's proportion ot 1 total railroad tonnage amounted to 60 I per cent i f "What relation has the prosperity J of mining to farming," asked Mr. Barker. 'The farmer has to have someone to consume his food. The j greater the market the more he will sell and the better will be hi" prices. I Home Industry means population and I home market That Is where the I Utah Copper comes in. In our turn I we want the farmer to prosper, so I that we can sell him automobiles, I refrigerators, milking machines and tractors to aid the consumption of I copper." '' ITT?

BUR PASSES AWAY The many frienrs of A, O. Mugfur will be grieved to hear of bis death Friday evening at Loa Vegas, Nev, where he had gone to spend th win. ter.

'COPPER LEAGUE BAS-KEIBH- EB Sport tans of the Copper league have now had ample time to play and replay all of the baseball of last pear and thtitr appetite are whetted for another session of sport. They have not long to wait however, for the bas-ketball season is close at hand at this writing and soon the Cyinnaaluuis at Arthur and the Oemmul Club will be filled to capacities watching the fa-mous and spectacular hoop sport There is now use of us telling the fans over aglan that the Copper league has the finest basketball of the entire country. We are all aware of that fact We know too that no-where is such a sport furnished to tlio public at such a low cost. So that about all we have to do is to fill the halls with spectators and the season Is a succetss regardless of which team finishes on the top. The Magna team has made & real bid for the honors already this year. IVal Glynn, former Montana State, and East High School star Is at Magna in charge of the team. It Is rumored that Glynn has brought some noted players with him to try and cop the title. Arthur l as the same men on the Job that were there last year with the ex-ception of Collet and he la expected back soon. Bingham will have to find a now nucleus to build a team around. Bra-dy is at the Arthur mill and the Cop-per team will have to cast eyes for another center. It Is difficult to tell Just what the Copper boys will have this year but it seems almost certain that heir team will be much stronger than laBt year's. We are all anxiously awaiting the first whistle for the opening game. Officials of the Pioneer Film Cor-poration are preparing for another exodus. This time not to make a picture, because THE EXODUS Is made, but to go to Hollywood to speed up the date of its distribution. , "We will do everything possible to get the picture back to Salt Lake for a holiday review," manager Sargent declared. "That Im the big reason for our trip to Hollywood." Leading motion picture critics sucn as Grace Kingsley, Louella Parsons, Garret J. Lloyd and others will bo In-vited to see the picture and theh suggestions will be greatly appreciat-ed. "We feel that THE EXODUS will be one of the film sensations of the year," manager Sargent said. ''It has been some time since a picture based wholly upon western love and adventure has been produced and we believe the public will greet our pro-duction with enthusiasm." Sound attachments will be made to THE EXODUS and will make many of the scenes much more realistic. A thundering herd ot buffalo without thunder would be interesting of course but the real thrill will come when the audience can hear as well as see the wild beasts of the plains go rusMng, galloping before the ca-mera. Indian scenes, and there are many of them, will be greatly accentuated by the sound attachments. Even tne grunts of the big chief and squaw will be registered. The clatter cf horses hoofs, bellowing of oxen draw, ing the prairie schooners over the de-sert will add eest to the picture. The "tory of THE EXODUS has a direct apeal to Utahns because It portrays the hardships of the pion-eers, led by Brigham Young, In their long and arduous Joruney from Mis-souri to the Mormon empire. There is gripping love story run-ning through the picture with such cinema stars as Marie Prevoat Ben Lyon, Gladys Johnston, Russell Simp-son, Andrus Randolph and Jlmmle Mason. The Parent Teachers Association held Its regular meeting Monday eve-ning In the High School Auditorium. Mrs. James Nerdin was in charge. Due to illness from influents, the University students who were to pres-ent the program, were unable to Ixt here, but at the eleventh hour an Impromptu program was arranged and proved to be enjoyable and Inter-esting.

With this issue of, the BULLETIN we record our flnat anniversary rflta the people of Bingham Canyon. And a short year Indeed It has been.

During this period - we have become acquainted with a vast num-ber of the good, hospitable people here and w feel a pardonable pride in numbering them - among-ou- r true friends. We have sought to always stand aloof from clanlshness and fac-tionalism, to meet every individual on an equal basis, give everyone full otedlt for any and all worthy accom-plishments and tread lightly on the shortcomings of the weak. And In this we feel that we have been meas-urably successful. ;' r ? The citizens of Bingham Canyon are to be congratulated on their en-terprise and public splritness which force alone Is responsible for the pro-gress which has been made during th Put year. That the community Is progressing and Is materially bet. - i ter than It was one year ago, is (in-disputable. We are keeping step with other enterprising cities and making modern Improvements under more difficult conditions perhaps, than they. ,.' , It will be our purpose to give loyal support to' every worthy Institution or individual, seeking to Improve the conditions of our community. Mrs. Margaret Contratto left Friday for her home in San Jose, Cal. After a week's visit with her son, Adolph Chlara and wife.

TWs, lest you be kept in suspense too long, Is a new game which will undoubtedly be re-ceived with open arms by the millions of cross-wor- d puzzle and laddergram addicts who have tired of the amuse-ment provided by these diversions. In short the Scotchogrma Is a test of skill In the use ot eupionlous words. The Idea Is to make a tele-graphed message convey more words to the reader than are actually writ-ten. The more the merrier. The Idea had its origin In a Caledonian who stepped Into a telegraph office and picked up one of the blanks. He look-ed at the clerk behind the counter. How much," he asked, "is a tele-gram to Chicago;" "Elve cents a word for ten word)," the clerk replied, "there will be no charge for the signature." The Scot looked amusingly at the clerk. signature," he repeated after a pause. "There will be no charge for the signature." "That's right," the clerk said. The Scot rubbed his forehead, spent a moment or so in deep thought and finally said, "Suppose you Just send my signature." "A right," said the clerk. "I'll do that for you. What's your name?" Another pause on the part of the Scotchman. "WeH." he finally murmured,' "I VMev." may not like It, but I'm an Indian, and my name la Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Andreason en-tertained the Alibi Club Tuesday ee-nln- g of last week.
