K ROAD MEN HAVE
NARROW ESCAPE
C. H. Bigelow and J. H. Cottam of
St. George in Peril When Ford '
Axle Breaks on Dugway.
(Washington County News.)
John II. Cottam and Charles II.
Bigelow, Secretary-of the Arrowhead1
Trail Ass'n., had a narrow escape'
from death or serious injury Wed
nesday through tho rear axle of Cot
tarn's Ford breaking while enroute
to Kunab to meet with State Engin-1
eer, G. F. McGonagle and B. J.
Finch, district engineer of the bureau
I of public roads.
' fiA . Cottam was driving and when leav-
i ng La Vorkin, near Judd's place tho
rear axlo of his car broke. Ho was
unaware of this until ho tried to ap
ply tho brakes on descending tho hill
going toward the bridge across the
Virgin river. His car gained mo
mentum going- down hill and disaster
threatened. Bigelow, seeing this,
jumped from the car and was either
struck by a rear wheel or it went
over him, he is not sure which, and
he received a badly bruised knee.
Cottam stuck to tho car and by
cool and skillful driving managed to
get it across tho dugway to the bridge
without punging down into tho can-1
yon.
Just before reaching the bridge
the off hind wheel and part of tho
broken axlo left the car and plunged
down the canyon. Cottam kept re
ducing tho speed of the car by run
ning it lightly into tho bank on tho
right of the road, thereby avoiding'
a serious ending in tho runaway.
They returned to this city where
Mr. Bigelow is nursing his leg.

The square on the right of the diagram, threaded by curved drive; ways and foot paths, represents
the park as it will appear ultimately, in the geographical center of which the city and county building
is to be placed. The hard wood trees recently planted to shade and adorn the park have been named
for the ex-service men. The left-hand portion of the diagram represents the Tourist Camping ground,
which has been planted with rapid growing trees. To provide temporary shade, lattis-work boweries
will be constructed and covered with trailing vines. Tents will be provided, with city water, electric
lights and electric stoves. There will be a shower bath and office building.

sion and Ceremonies, Includ
ing Christening Trees.
Last Tuesday tho exercises attend
ant upon the planting of tho city
park with trees, which was postponed
last week on acocunt of weather con
ditions, wcro carried out, and consist
ed of a parade beginning in upper
Ttfain street near the tabernacle and
finishing at the city park, led by the
B. A. C. band; an address by Mayor
Swapp and ceremonies connected with
tho naming of the young trees for
the soldier boys, musical numbers,
etc.
The parade and ceremonies had its
concoption with tho Homo Economics
club, which appointed a committee to
work, in conjunction with the city ad
ministration and other organizations
in the matter,
Tho parade was led by tho B. A. C.
Band under the direction of Mr. II.
Peyton Johnson, and was followed by
the ladies of the Red Cross in cos
tume, tho Ladies' Relief Society and
the Home Economics Club, each bear
ing suitable banners. Then followed
' a long procession of-atudents from the
I B. A. C. and children from .the district
schools, also carrying banners.
The ceremonies at tho park went
smoothly and without a hitch. The
Mayor's remarks were full of feeling
and breathed a patriotic spirit. The
j christening ceremonies were unique,
the trees were lnbclcd temporarily by
cards, but tho Mayor stated that these
would be replaced as early ns practic
able with metnl tags.
The weather was ideal for the cere
monies and exercises, and the ladies
who conceived the plan felt well re
paid for their trouble and work. Tho
Committee on Park Day celebration
i wish to express their thanks and ap-.
preciation to all who took part in the
parade or in any way helped to make
the day a success.

'WiV"" u' ."" " VT"w't'-V-;-1
" Property and Lease lakes
Possession June First.
On June first a change in the man
agement of the Cedars Hotel is sched
uled to take place, Tho property is
being bought outright by Mr. H. S.
Cuttlcr of Knnnb frm Mrs. C. G.
Boll for a consideration of $20,5000,
nnd in addition to this Mr. Cutler is
purchasing tho relinquishment of a
long term lease from Mr, W. II. Pcrry
the present landlord.
Mr. Cutler has been Bllnrflntf for
tho property for three weeks or miifd
paBt and made a trip to Suit Lake
City to see tho owner, who then came
hero to conclude tho negotiations. Hi
stated that he was paying a good fig
ure for tho property but not as much
as it would cost to build it now, and
expressed his nbsolutc confidence in
tho future of Cedar City,. Mr. Cutler's
homo was in Kanab, and while he likes
tho country nnd people there ho pre
fers to bo closer to a railroad and a lit
tle closer connected with the outside
world, Tho fact that he purchapcd
the Cedars at this figure proves that
Mr. Cutler believes thcro will be bus
iness for two good hotels in Cednr
City after tho new one is completed.
Mr. Cutler left Monday to bring
his family and will eb on the ground
to take over the property on tho first.
ANNUAL ALUMNI LUNCHEON
AND BALL NEXT TUESDAY
Officers of Association Issue Novel
"Conservation of Paper" ,
Invitations.
Ah a regular feature of the annual
commencement exercises of the B. A.'
C. tho B. N. S.-B. A. C. Alumni Asso-,
ciation will hold its ball and luncheon
Tuesday, May 25th, at the College. I
In issuing the printed invitations
to the members the officers so-'
lected the cheapest grade of card in
the Record's pnper department, snme
being what is used for backing tab- i
lots, and a mnniln envelope. In ex- !
planation tho committee stated that
there was a lot being said about the
conservation of paper, but that nobody !
seemed to practice it, and they were
going to set the example in this re- '
spect. They also said they wanted to
administer a rebuke to Principal Ho- I
mcr for his extravagance shown by
the elaborate engraved commence
ment invitations which ho had issued,
bb usual, this year. Hanged if wo
don't believe the Alumni chaps have.,
the right idea of it, too. Their order ,
hit us right in a vulnerable spot, in'
these days of high paper prices, while
tho order for engraved and embossed i j
invitations went clear over our heads i
and landed away back East somewhere j
we presume. And anywny, if it was ,
an innovation tho committee was af- j
ter they certainly got it. ,
Mr. and Mrs. Claud Haws left last
week for Escalante where they will rc-
side for tho summer nt least.
SENATOR SMOOT TO
HEAD COMMISSION
Has Almost Unanimous Support of
Congress for Big Government
Reorganization Scheme. -
(Special to Tl)o Record)
, Washington, D. C. May 20 Senator
Reed Smoot of Utah will beyond all
quest on head tho joint Congressional
commission empowered to survoy and
prepare a definite plan for tho reor
ganization of tho executive branches
of tho government.
Tho resolution providing for this
I reorganization was introduced and
passed by tho Scnato and is now pend
ing in the House. Scnntor Smoot
is tho father of tho plan.
Tho resolution is intended to bring
about an incxhaustive inquiry by a
joint committee of Congress into tho
waste, overlapping nnd duplication in
the government service, nnd also to
effect legislation to overhaul tho gov
ernment mnchincry.
A joint committee of Scnato and
House composing six members will
investigate.
Scntnor Smoot hns tho almost un
animous suppot of Republicans and
J Democrats for the chairmanship, be
cause of his years of study of gov
ernment appropriations and govern
ment offices, it is pointed out.
In a brief statement on the flobr of
tho Sennte, Senator Underwood, Dem
ocratic leader, approved the Smoot
resolution. Preceding this Senator
Smoot made a statement to tho Sen
nte ns to the reasons for tho inves
tigation, declaring tho "ndministrat
ivo branch of the Government had
not undergone a fundamental over
hauling sinco Aloxnndcr Hamilton
devised tho government organization"
tho result being that all manner of
duplications and cxccrcspenccs had
grown up.
The senator called emphatically for
new and less wasteful administrative
methods in the interest of grcnter
efficiency and economy. Senator
Kcnyon, who is on tn&appropriatltins
committee with Senator Smoot, and
who does not always agree with him
on legislation, commended the Smoot
measure very highly.
"It is one of the biggest things of
the session' lie said. "It will rcquiro
two years of hard work, but it will
be extremely valuable Sinco ho is
indeed highly qualified to head tho
committee, I hope Senator Smoot will
do so."
UNITED STATES TREASURY
NEEDS THE MONEY BADLY
That's Why $100,000,000 6-Mo.
I "Treasury Certificates Are
Offered Bearing 52
,an Francisco, May 17, 1020 With
,'an invitation to private investors to
j participate, Governor John U. Calk
,in3 of the Federal Reserve Bank of
,San Francisco announced the receipt
of n telegram from the Secretary of
the Treasury offering approximate
ly a $100,000,000 issue of Treasury
1 Certificates of Indebtedness, carry
ing five and one-half percent inter
est nnd running for six months be
l tween the dntes of May 17 and Nov
ember 15. This is the highest in
terest yield yet offered on Treasury
Certificates of Indebtedness. The
last issue carried an interest rate of
I five and one-quarter percent,
i The quotn of tho Twelfth Federal
Reserve District, Governor Calkins
snid, is $7,000,000. Tho amount of
Certificates offered will be approx
imately $100,000,000. Subscriptions
will be closed without notice. De
nominations of the Certificates will
range from $500 to $100,000.
Letters to county treasurers
throughout the Twelfth Federal Re
servo District, setting forth the ad
vantages presented by the Ccrtiflr
cntes for short term investment of
county funds, have been sent out by
tho Federal Reserve Bank.
"Heretofore tho banks and trust
companies of the Twelfth District
have patriotically absorbed virtually
ull of every issue of Treasury Certi
ficates of Indebtedness," said C. R,
Shaw, Assistant Cashier of the Fed
eral Resevo Bank. Tho high rate of
interest attached to this issue should
attract thousands of private investors
looking for short term investments,
These Certificates aro obligations of
tho United States Government, re
deemable in ensh at maturity, and are
therefore, the soundest securities in
the world."
FREE SCHOLARSHIPS FOR

SCHOOLS CLOSE 1
YEARS ACTIVITY I
i i iH
Class Work at B. A. C. and District
H
School Closed This Week H
Very Satisfactorily.
ONLY COMMENCEMENT AT "" I
' B. A. C. NOW REMAINS
Attendance Has Been Large, and H
With Slight Interruption by Con- ,
tagious Disease, Year Will be w
Counted Very Successful One. H
Tho schools, both district nnd B. A. H
C. havo rounded out their yenr's work H
nnd all class work is over until after
tho summer vacation. The district H
schools have already dismissed, nnd H
all that remains for tho B. A. C. is H
the annual commencement exercises. H
the program for which is published H
in this issuo of Tho Record. H
This hns been a big year in school H
accomplishment. Relieved of tho 'H
strain nnd labor of war, the students H
of high school nnd college grade havo
returned to their studies, and tho at-
tendance hns been uncommonly good. 'H
Then tho interruption on uccount of H
contagious diseases has been short, nl- H
most negligible. And with tho splen- H
did corps of teachers provided both by H
the county school district nnd tho H
stntc institution, there hns been noth- H
ing to hold bnck or retard the pro- M
grcss of tho students, except, in some M
instances possibly, indifference on tho H
part of the students themselves. M
But now that the weather has sud- H
denly turned so wnrm the students H
and the teachers also, we venture to H
say, havo grown restless and will wel- M
come a little rest nnd n chnngc. H
In the case of the district school i
children, however, under the new order 9
of things, will not be turned entirely $'H
loote to roam about free and untram- ?fl
muled at will. They are still to bo, vH
to a certain extent subject to tho at-. JM
tcntion and supervision of teachers' M
especially designated and employed H
for this purpose, and those who havo H
no work at homo or no suitable su- H
pcrvision will be given an opoprtu- H
nity to work for the city and possibly H
for individuals, also, under tltM dJWi H
tion of instructors ni)d for a common-.
suintc wage. Thus they will not only
be helping with their own keep, but H
will be learning habits of industry H
and thrift, which will be of priceless H
value in after years. M
As the schools drew to a close, tho H
usual entertainments, which tend to H
reflect the nrogresfl mmlo In POrtflin,
lines, have been given. Among theso H
and deserving of fnyornbk montion
wnB "The Molting Pot," or pageant
of nations, given by the district school H
children of the Cedar City school, and
drilled in the work by Miss Eva Buys H
of the physical education department, H
nnd Mr. Nicholcs of the musical dc-
partment. The entertainment, which H
was free to the public, was given in H
the Ward Hall Tuesday night and was H
greeted by a crowded house, proved H
very entertaining and showed plainly H
long nnd patient work on tho part of ;H
the instructors. One of the strong H
features of the evening was the band H
of first graders, under the direction of H
Miss Sharp, and provided with such H
novel instruments as sticks, bottles, H
bells and whistles, gnvo n very fine H
serenade. 1
Following is a list of the graduates H
from the Junior High School:
Cecil Clnlir Adams, Fern Froyd, H
Ethel Houchen, Alice Higbee, Thelma
Higbee, Preston L. Jones, Elva Lunt,
Gibson Lunt, Zoella Palmer, Mury H
Palmer, Bernice Parry, Heber Smith, H

The work of Miss Buys has furn- H
ished an innovation in school activities
Doth of the district school and the B. H
A. C, and we regret to learn that she H
is severing her connection and will H
not be bnck with us next year. M
make the money at their disposal go H
just an far as possible in helping ex- IH
service men receive further training.
Preference will be given to ltah H
schools ami colleges in awarding schol- H
arships, wherever they can givj tho lfl
kind of training desired by the appli. H
cant. For those who wish eorrua-
