ing Visit of C. H. Bigelow.
The reclamation of the Colorado
" River basin is a project of national
importance and in the coming Pres
idential campaign will form no small
item in the various party platforms.
In view of the fact that this project
means the development of more than
5,000,000 acres of productive land, it
can bo readily understood why so
much stress was laid upon the devel
opment of this area, both from n
standpoint of power production nntl
cultivation, at the annual convention
of the League of tho Southwest which
has just concluded its session in Los
Angeles this week.
With the connsumation of the plans
for this reclamation one of the most
vital features necessary to its success
is that of road construction and. much
time was spent in the convention dis
cussing tho present system of road
connections and highway development
as has been outlined, after four years
of study by C. B. Bigelow of the Utah
State Engineering department.
Road Routes Studied.
Whenever engineering and con
struction problems are to be solved
in the desert waste, the first consid
eration of the present day engineer
is his abality to travel over the pro
jects by motor vehicle. With this
object in view more than nine years
- ago the far-seeing promoters of tho
j,; f!n1nrndn River project, in considering
iwvlll' """ thTgreatries-of "tho "problem and meed
- of co-ordination of effort delegated
C. H. Bigelow to study this region
and to suggest a road system to servo
the ends in view. Out of this inves-
itigation grew the Arrowhead Trial
system which may now be said to gen
erally connect the most important
points in this project by transverse
sections, which, when completed, will
mnke n road system forming an out
, let for the resulting production of this
gigantic undertaking.
Two weeks ago, Captain Bird of the
Motor Transit Company and the
White Auto company of Southern
i - California was invited to make a rec-
1 onnaissance over the Arrowhead Trail
and its connections in tho Colorado
, Tlivcr basin by Governor Bamberger
1 of Utah and Mr. Bigelow of the enfein-
eering department. Captain Bird,
equipped with a Stephens scout car
, spent ten days in making a finnl
i check of the roads in this region cov
ering the territory from both the
scenic ond industrial standpionts.
Open Up scenic Wonderland
It might be noted in passing that
in connection with this great indus-
' I trial development these roads put a
( scenic wonderland within rcoch of the
j motor tourists for instance, the Vnlley
of Fire, unique in the world's natural
j display with its red sandstone forma-
tion. Zion Canyon n smaller but vivid
reproduction of the Grand Canyon,
which is shortly to be dedicated as n
j national pnrk, tho Cedar Breaks, and
' Bryco Canyon, an area covered with
gigantic stalagmites, great erosions,
' j and wonderful color effects.
In returning to the industrial phase
development of the Colorado Basin,
it may bo mentioned that the ability
j of the Arrowhead Trails to carry this
j great increase of trafllc noted above
will be of material assistance in car
rying out the ground plans of this
I reclamation project.
In the reconnaissance of the various
Arrowhead branches and lines, to
gether with tho proposed connecting
laterals, Captain Bird was nblo to fol
low the most important road condi
tions without any difficulty even
i though travelling in advance of the
open season. In outlining the road dc-
I "velopments that will bo of mnteriol
benefit in tho development of the bn-
'in, it is well to start at St. George
! AUtah, which marks the junction point
j of the Arizona section of the Arrow-
" t head Trail to the main line of this
trail between Los Angeles and Salt
j . Lake City.
i At the last session of the Arizona
State Lagislaturc an appropriation
8 was voted for a bridge of the steel
I cantilever type approximately 350 ft.
j above the bed of the stream crossing
tho Colorado in Mojave County just
s -west of tho point where the river
If leaves tho Grand Gorge and spreads
In over the plains area of tho Grand
M Wash.
Direct Line of Transport
II This line will serve as n direct road
connection for transport to tho farth
wi est ndvnnced power development pro-
. H jects on the Colorado, where there nro
M 3 drops of 250 ft. each in the gorgo
fl of the river, which in turn have been
H estimated will develop C82.000 KW.

HISTORY OF INTER
CHURWEMEI Clergy Gets in Line With Progress
and Forsakes Haphazard for
Efficient Methods
Historically the Interchurch World
Movement of North America is tho
logical out-growth of a tendency of
the national boards in each denomina
tion of form working alliances among
themselves, in which each board shall
prcscrvo its identity and control its
own personnel and treasury.
In former times the home mission
society, tho foreign mission society,
the church extension society and the'
various philanthropic and clcemo3ary
agencies of any denomination con
ducted their affairs independently of
ono another. Each surveyed its own
restricted territory, prepared a budget
of money and workers- for its own
purposes and made its own appeal to
its constituency for support.
This could only mean that those
agencies wero more or less in compe
tition with one another, that there
waswasto and duplication of work,
and money, and that nmong them ull
some work was neglected and some
denominational resources were entire
ly overlooked. Because of their spe
cialized training, the leaders of each
agency regarded themselves as pecu
liarly fitted for their tasks and jeal
ously regarded attempts at outside in
terference. After decades of such haphazard
methods, the leaders of one denomin
ation decided upon an experiment
They thought it would be possible for'
the agencies to get together for a
common study of all opportunities and,
resources of their brotherhood, to
make out a unified budget of men and
money. It waa made clear that each
constituent board should preserve
complete autonomy.
When tho board representatives
met they found it possible to elimin
ate a great amount of organization
expenses. They ultimately worked
out a budget and plan of campaign
that was satisfactory to all. This re-'
suited in the famous "Men and Mil
lions Movement," of tho Diciplcs of
Chrls"t, -which brought in what was1
then considered the staggering sum
of $0,300,000 for n five-year program.
The members of the communion were1
so pleased with this business-like
method of conducting affairs that
they contributed even more gener
ously than had been expoctd.
The Interchurch World Movement
is simply a plan to do intcrdenominn
tionally what the forward movements
have done within the various com
munions. It means that every de
nominational budget will be made in
the light of tho world needs instead
of in the semi-obscurity of incomplete
information. It means that one de
nomination will not be in wasteful
competition with another, because all
tho fellowships will have worked out
their programs together.
Tho movement has nothing to do
with organic church union or matters
of creed or doctrine. Each constitu
ent unit preserves complete autonomy
and it bound only so far as it wishes
to be bound.
An illustration of one thing the
movement can do is to be found in a
western commuity of 1,000 persos, in
which thirteen denominations have
uccn supporting separate cnurcnes
with missionary funds, while an adja
cent territory of 50,000 persons has
only three churches. By seeing that
all missionary boards are supplied
with information in such cases, the
movement will make possible a wiser
distribution of funds.
Its first goals arc to reduce unnec
essary duplication nnd overlapping to
a minimum and to bring about nn
intelligent division of labor in unoccu
pied fields. Tho movemet is, at bot
tom, an attempt to put church busi
ness upon the foundations which the
great commercial institutions of
America are built.
JUNIOR PROM ONE OF THE
NOTABLE SOCIAL EVENTS
The Junic- Prom which was held
Friday even.ig was one of the notable
social events of the school year. The
decorations were wonderful in color
and arrangement nnd it would be next
to impossible to describe in detail tho
richness of tho color combinations.
The Faculty, College Class, Seniors
and Sophomores had booths arranged
in each of the four corners of tho
hall for which a prize was offered
for the best. After long and careful
study the judges pronounced tho
Sophomore booth as tho prize winner.
Delicious punch, ice cream and candy
wero nerved by tho different classes.
Tho music was furnished by tho John
son orchestra and was indeed a
credit to tho playen?. Tho grand
march took place at ten o'clock after
which n flashlight picturo'w'as taken
of the Junior Class.
The students deservo the heartiest
of congratulations for the success of
tho event which was one of those
that stand out nnd nbovo tho ordinnry
and will be long remembered by
everyone participating.

Thursday xApr. 22.
Next Thursday. April 22, Mr. and
Mrs. Andrew Corry will celebrate
their golden wedding, with n social
party given in their honor by their
sons nnd dnughters. Elaboroto prep
arations nro already under way for
tho affair, and printed invitations nre
being issued. Andrew Corry was ono
of the first pioneers of Cedar City,
coming hero when only a chunk of a
boy. He hns been n prominent figure
here for a number of years, nlways
a man of affairs, and has specialized
in mail contracting, farming nnd tho
growing of livo stock. Ills success
is equally attributable to his own ef
forts and tho splendid support given
by his amiable and capable helpmeet,
who has kept him company for tho
past 50 years. As tho hostess of the
Corry Hotel, Mrs. Corry as well as
her husband has a wide circle of ac
quaintances and friends.
It is not many of our married peo
ple that live to celebrate their 50th
wedding anniversary and it is fitting
that tho event bo duly commemorated,
Mr. and Mrs. Corry have tho hearty
congratulations of The Record, and
our wishes for a number more years
of happy life together. Mrs. Corry
is enjoying better health at present
thnn for several months past, and ev
erything is propitious for n pleasant

APRIL FIFTEENTH
U. S. PAY DAY
Interest on Fourth Loan Liberty
Bonds Amounting to $279,-
389,906 Due That Day.
Snn Francisco, April 1G, 1020 In
terest payments on tho wholo out
standing issue of Fourth Loan Lib
erty Bonds, falling duo on tho fif
teenth of this month, amount approx
imately to $270,a89JOC. In tho
Twelfth Federal Reserve District
ulono Uncle Sam will reward thol
Eatriotism of those who bought 4th
oan BondB with a scmi-nnnual in
terest installment of $0,770,700.
Tha interest is puynblo in tho case,
of unregistered Londs at any hank!
simply by presentation of tho c-ou-j
pons. It is ns simple ns changing a
dollnr bill. The interest on tho reg-J
istcrcd bond is sent direct from Wash
ington to holders. The interest on'
every $100 bond of the Fourth Loan1
falling due on tho fifteenth of the ,
month. is $2.12. I
Coupons left uncashed and nttuchcdj
to the bond bear no further interest,'
Although fuilurc of tiio bond owner
to cnsli his coupon is in a way u ben-1
elit to the Government, ns it leaves
the money in the Governmet's hnnds
nt no cost, yet tho Treasury Depart-1
nient, through tho Government Suv
ings Organization for the Twelfth
Federal Reserve District, is anxious
that each bond holder shall profit to
the fullest possible extent. The
Government therefore advises that
nil holders of Fourth Liberty Loan
Bonds shall present the coupons fal
ling due April 15 on or after that
date to any bnnk and invest tho in
terest earned on tho Liberty Boiul3 in'
Wnr Savings Stnmps, which bear,
four percent interest compounded,
every three months. These, like the (
Liberty Bonds, nro obligations of tho
United States Government, nnd thoy
sell this month for $4.15. January
1,1025, thoy will be worth five dol
lars. Large investors in Liberty Bonds
have ljttlo need of this advice to clip
, their coupons and cash them and re
I invest tho interest money. They nre
cautious investors and tnko ndvan
I (ngo of the opportunity to make their
i money earn every cent possible, nnd
1 will put the interest money on the
1 Liberty Bonds nt work. It is to thu
small investor, unused to ensiling
I bond coupons, that the Government
I appeals in his own behalf.
' If tho $270,389,000 interest money
I due on fourth Lonn Bonds April 16,
t were reinvested nt four per cent ln
j terest, compounded quarterly, it
iwould earn $11,314,350.53 m ono year.
If tho $0,779,700 interest payment on
the fifteenth of this month in tho
Twelfth Federal Reserve District a
lone wero Reinvested nt the same
rate of interest, it would earn $397,
095.03. The advisability, therefore,
of the holder of Liberty Bonds invest
ing his Liberty Bond interest in War
Savings Stamps becomes appnrer t.

PROVES GOOD TREAT H
The B. A. C. opera which was pre-
sentcd Tuesday night to n large aud- H
iencc in the Ward Hall, under the di-
rcction of E. II. Nicholas wns enjoyed 1 H
very mucli by thoso present nnd wni H
n credit to tho Music Department of H
the B. A. C. and to all those taking H
part. The title of the piece wns "The
Bo'su's Bride," and wns well ndnptfd ! H
for presentation by tho school talent. H
1 .010117.0 Luke was supported in the H
lending initio role by Miss Kathleen H
Matheson in the ladies' stellar role, H
and their singing and dramatic work ' H
was very creditable. Ottoson Luke H
and Miss Libby Gower were favorites ' M
with their auditors in their comedy H
parts nnd received hearty applause. M
The dancing under the direction of M
Miss Buys was especially good and M
wns very successfully introduced. H
We nre glad to note thnt the pleas- M
ing annual B. A. C. opera is not being H
nllQWcd to lapse. More such local H
productions, embodying ns they do, H
innocent nmusement of a high order, H
would be beneficial in Cedar City. H
Someone is saving the money you M
wnsts. Why don't you sa it your- jH
self? Start a savings account. IH
Isn't it a fact that the man who - H
used to drive n horse toots his nuto- M
mobile horn the loudest when a team M
gets in his way ? M
coming here from all parts of tho M
United States to buy improved land. H
They pay all the way from $300 to' H
$800 per aero in nnd near Mesa but - M
they can soon mnke the land pay for M
itself. Most of tho work is dona by H
Mexicans nnd colored people and their H
labor is much cheaper than white H
There nro pcoplu from all parts of M
Utah here who say they like tho H
country very much. Although it is H
rather warm for three months in the H
summer thero have been no deaths H
from sunstroko so far as is known H
any many people go into the mou'n- H
tains or to the beach for the hottest H
months. H
From hero down to Tuscon land is H
somewhat cheaper and is being bought H
up rapidly and will bo much higher jH
by fall. People aro just beginning to H
realize the valuo of tho country. WM
Alfalfa has been cut tnico here H
already, tho average being seven jH
, cuttings in n season nnd thero is plon- H
ty of water. Work will begin soon on H
the L. D. S. Tcmplo here. jH
