In his address to the graduates,
Dean Milton Bcnnion states that the
vocations most necessary to tho
world today were those related to
the production to food, clothing and
shelter. This institution was espec
ially equipped to train pupils in these
, highly important linos, embracing Ag
riculture and Domestic Art.
Foreigners nre today doing most
of the higlhy skilled work in building,
engineering, contracts, etc. Much
need for the young people of America
to prepare to fill the vacancies daily
The primary object of a vocation
nhould be service rather than tho
, thought of remuneration which will
' follow as a natural consequence.
4i Unmarried women with n vocation
are not old maids. They have nono of
the eccentricities that once character
ized this class of women. There are
, very few "old maids" in those days
, r and they are mostly men.
The present political situation is
. . very serious. Bolshevist doctrines
are very strong in various sections
of free America. The idea that might
makes right must be eradciated for
without law and order civilization will

DRILLING RESUMED AT
VIRGIN DOME OIL WELL
With the arrival of more cable
drilling wns resumed nt the Virgin
Dome oil well last Sunday, and the
drill was down 2120 feet yesterday
afternoon nnd drilling is being con
tinued. The drill had then just gone
through 15 feet of dark blue shale,
after passing through black paraffin
wax which showed oil very strongly.
The showing is considered better
than ever by thoso conducting tho
operations. Washington Co. News.

devoted about half a column to the
visitors nnd their work, the story
coming out before the trip to tho
famous Zion ennyon.

started back, nnd then in the vicinity
i of Beaver, wo encountered mud," said
Mr. Hnnchett last night. "Tho mud
continued for about seventy miles and
i wns annoying to sny the least. We
I camo through, though, and tho trip in

tation with Representatives Jos. S.
Snow and Engineer Chns. II. Bigelow
They wcro returning to Salt Lake
after an official visit to Knnnb nnd
Zion Canyon. They went over tho
proposed road between Knnnb nnd
Zion canyon, taking in Short Creek.
The proposed short rond from Knnnb
would enter tho present rond nenr
Rockville, and would reduce the pres
ent route between Knnnb nnd Zion
canyon nbout 25 miles. Mr. Finch
inspected the proposed short roud
between Hurricane and St. George
and said it was an ensy and simple
proposition thnt would save 15 miles
between tho two plnces. This simply
menns thnt tho road to Knnnb from
St. George would be reduced 40 miles
taking in Hurricnnc, Rockville, Short
Creek, nnd other settlements enroutc.
They spent a day in Zion canyon
and were delighted with it.
The proposed shorter road between
St. Georgo nnd Hurricane will prob
ably bo a joint state and federal rond
connecting the Arrowhead Trail
south and west.
While up the river the party in
spected the North Creek bridge nnd
other rond improvments.
Mr. Finch went to Enterprise Sat
urday to examine the fedcrnl post
roud to that ptnec.
Mr. McGonagle inspected the road
to the Indian reservation Saturdny.
Mr. Grimes accompanied Repre
sentative Snow to the Sugnrloaf Am
phitheatre Saturday. Ho praised
highly the good road made by citizens
to that beauty spot nnd talked in
high terms of admiration of the am
phitheatre, baying thnt in his travels
he had never seen nnything to com
pare with it. He considers it a val
uable asset to tho city.
Tho question of road maintenance
was gone over with Messrs. Snow
nnd Bigelow, tho idea being to keep
the roads in the best condition pos
sible until tho state can dispose of
rond bonds without Bncrilco, when
construction of new road will be com
menced. Washington County News.

EXPERT REPORT ON
Engineer Finds Splendid Indica
tions and Encourages Owners
to Prove Property.
Modcnn, Utah, May 24, 1920,
Dr. Bergstrom, Mr. Corry, Mr, Hlg
ins and Associntes, w -
Gentlemen: On Mny 23rd I visited
your property nt Sta'tolinc. As vvtitcr
conditions were such that It was im'
possible to exnmino, nnythjng but sur
face conditions, will say, however that
the surface conditions arc ns fine as
yqu will find in any mining country.
You have the best of formation and
fine Btrntafication. Tho formation is
Basalt, Ryolito, Phonnlyte, Porphry,
nnd Quartz yhich nre tho very best,
nnd nt your plnco they show mineral
at grass roots. From nil indications
the drift you nre running from the
bottom of your shnft you should strike
the veins in a distance of not greater
than thirty feet. Tho surfneo shows
four distinct veins between your shnft
and the ledge you nre drifting for.
I am of tho opinion that you arc in n
very few feet of the ono vein as your
drift is in twenty-eight feet. When
you cut the vein no doubt you will
encounter some very good ore ns tho
surface Bhowing indicates such. From
what I could see, I am of the opinion
thnt depth is nil thnt is needed to
mnke n good mine. It is too bad that
the money you havo spent wns not
spent on some one of the veins thnt
havo such good surface showings, but
tho work is done nnd you must mnko
the best of it. My advice is to finish
your drift then drift on tho ore, nnd
nlso upraise on the ore. Find out
what you have; if the ore proves a
paying quality and qunntity the rest
will lc ensy, but first prove your'
I The drift of thirty feet should be
, run for not to exceed $12.00 per foot.
I can't understand why you should
work the third man, ns two men
should be able to do all the work in
running the drift. When they drill
j only two can work in the breast of the
drift nnd in mucking out only one enn
1 work in the drift, one on top. Two
I men should drill a round in one hnlf
: shift nnd muck out in ono half shift
! and do the pumping when they are
mucking. Of course, if the pump
i must run nil tho time it will require
I the third mun. The drift should not
be made Inrgcr than four or six feet
nnd the ground looks soft nnd should
be ensy drilling nnd break easy. They
should make at least two feet per day.
From the talk your man put up I be
lieve ho will do alright if you give
him the proper support. Mr. Drnko
has the nnmo of being a good miner,
and was recommended to us by a very
fine miner. If you gentlemen gave up
now you would never be satisfied for
you nro just at a point where you
should go ahead nnd prove tho mine
a good one or a fnilure.
Hoping that what I have said will
furnish food for thought and encour
ago thoso who have lost faith, I beg
to remain, Very truly,
ALLEN RICHARDSON, M. E
The fields and landscnpc nre pretty

'freshest nnd greenest it hns been in

for crops. The only troublo is that
so little has been planted, due to the
scarcity of help and seed, nnd tho dis

(Salt Lako Tribune) M
Dr. George W. Middleton has re-
turned to Snlt Lake after a general H
rcconnoitcr of several days in San H
Junn county nnd tho ndjncent nrca of H
Colorado, over tho interstate line, no
wns accompanied by Professor R. R. H
"San Juan is a country of ningnifi- jH
,cont distances," said Dr. Middleton. M
"They speak in thut section of trips of H
fifty to a hundred miles much as wo H
spenk of stretches of ten miles in tho H
more thickly settled parts. Thoso men H

to Bluff, nnd thoy would change thoir iH

to bo by team and buggy before tho H

"Geologically, San Juan, and tho H
part of Colorado adjacent, is a great il
mesozoic country. At Moub, nnd in ;

milliom cllfT of trlnssic origin is -ll

site side, to mnko its way to tho " fB
junctjon with tho Green river, and il

two places in tho winding canyons !- ,

lying carboniferous limostonc como iM

located the Big Indian mine, a copper '
lode, now in process of development. M

"For a hundred miles east of Monti-
cello a rolling cretaceous plain M
stretches into tho Colorado. At its H
terminus an abrupt escurpment, with H
an upthrust of several thousand feet,
mnrkes tho western boundary of the '
Mesa Verde. 'j
"At Bluff two members of tho trins- 'M
sic scries, a hard one superimposed M
upon a soft one, give origin to tho H
wonderful lithlogicnl formations of M

identical boulders of great size, bal-
anced at unstable equilibrium on very fl
narrow necks, are types of the, ero- 'fl
sionnl architecture which thu Sun

the unknown nges. M
"Through the whole country abrupt 'M
gorges lead southward toward thu
San Juan, nnd their great under- l
mining cliffs discloso the picturcsquo
nbodes of the wonderful unknown peo- H
pie whom we desinuto "cliff dwell- H
cis." From time immemorial this haa H

of the existing Indian tribes. M

the cliff dwellers is in the section now

Cliff villages of size to accommodato H
a thousand people, cluster like swnl M
lows' nests on these huge cretaceous fll
shelves, with their overhanging walls. M
The cliff dwellers were good muRom M
nnd had artistic tastes. Evidently they
were n very religious people. Tho ijH

are all of the same design, with cir- M
cular walls and each has six pallastcnt jH

"Evidently tho cliff dwellers did not H
limit their building activities to cliff 'H
