i I :
j 5 THE FIRST DAY OF JULY. CARLOAD OF TRAILERS
I 'f WILL COMPLETE NE EDED EQUIPMENT.
J I CONCRETE HIGHWAY CONSTRU CTION WILL BEGIN AT LUND ON
I H. J. Doolittle of Lund wns in the
' S Record office today nnd announced
v, v that the carlond of trailers for which
, rt the Southern Utah Construction Co.
' l has been waiting will be shipped Mon-
fs day and that this practically com-
plctes the equipment needed for be-
t ginninjr work on the concrete high-
I way from Lund to Cedar City.
J It is the plan of the company to
"begin work the first of July nnd push
I construction until the new road is
I completed. The company already has
r at Lund a monster 75-h.p. caterpillar
tractor and a heavy roller for the road
-work, but had been delayed in their
- work by the lack of trailers.
f The Southern Utah Construction
I Company, is an Iron County corporn-
tion, and the building of tho road will
I take n minimum of cash out of the
! county, nnd so will be of the grcnt-
' est possible benefit to industry in
f this section of the country.
Residents of all tho towns affected
f have been watching eagerly for the
announcement that work is actually
l to begin, and only the building of a
' railroad to Cedar would bo hailed
J with more satisfaction

Conviction that prompt and de
cisive action on the part of progrc3.
sivc citizens of Salt Lake and Utah
generally will be required to place be
fore the motoring public a knowledge
of the scenic beauties of Bryce Can
yon and Zion National Park is ex
pressed by Wesley E. King who hns
just returned from a trip to Utah's
Dixieland.
Mr. King declares that after this
journey, which took him as far south
as St. George and Beaver City, ho
found motorists from distant points
passing through these cities nnd cn
gaged in sightseeing for pleasure
who had never been advised of the
existence of cither Bryce canyon or
Zion National Park, and who had
been directed to proceed through
Utah on to the Grand Canyon be
fore they would find anything
worth stopping for.
Blame Is Held Divided.
For this condition of affairs, Mr.
King puts the blame on the shoulders
of the Southern Calif. Automobile As
sociation, some of the hotel men of
Southern Utah and the citizenry gen.
orally, who fail to do all in their pow
er to mako known what Utah has to
offer the sightseer in the way of un
rivaled scenic grandeur. Ho has taken
the matter up with the Commercial
club and Jtho UjnJjStato Automobile
MwwKsiatisrbhrixr
tions have written replies outlining
their work in this regard forwarding
copies to tho governor of Utah.
In his letter to tho Commercial
club under date of June 7, Mr. King
sets out that while passing through
Beaver City enroute to Zion National
park, he met Mr. and Mrs. II. A.
Line from Oklahoma City and Mr.
nnd Mrs. W. A. Jones of Joplin, Mo.
Mr. and Mrs Lane had left their
home some weeks ago by auto, going
along the Santa Fe tiail, visiting the
Grand canyon, then on to Los Angeles
where they stopped n the offices of
the Southern California Automobile
association to make inquiry about the
sights and roads back through Utah
and California
Tourists Not Informed.
These travellers, says Mr. King,
were given maps of the Arrowhead
trail, but were told nothing about
Zion Park or Bryce canyon. Ho says
they stopped at the Snow hotel in St.
George, but were told nothing about
these places, and when asked by Mr.
King if they had seen these places
professed utter ignorance of their ex
istence. Answering ?or the Commercial
Club Secretary Nathaniel Jackbon
says that there is no other national
park or any scenic attraction in tho
United States which has had so
much publicity "as Zion Nationnl and
Bryco canyon' He points to the
work done by Mr. King himself and
to publicity in Motor Land, Motor
Age and other magazines. Mr. Jack, l"
son adds: I
"If any highwny exists which is
attempting to misdirect or cloud di
rections to our scenic wonders with
the opening of the tourist season, it
should bo given our most vigorous
attention."
Speaking for the Utah State Auto
mobile Association, Manager W. D.
Rishel writes:
"You simply reiterate a fact that
this office has known for years. We
have called attention to this deplor
able lnck of knowledge of one of
Utah's greatest wonders in tho press,
in public and in privato utterances.
We have met with considerable op
position in our efforts to put Zion
National park on the map as far as
our foreign or out-of-state tourists
are concerned.
Charges Utahns Oppose Work.
"It may surprise you to know that
our greatest opposition comes from
residents of our Btate. We shall con
tinue tho fight until we have won;
until every tourist crossing the state
of Utah from north to south or south
to north will know that there ij such
a place as Zion National park in

CANYON ROAD CONVENTION. COMMERCIAL CLUB
STRONGLY ENDORSES PROJECT.
1
At a meeting of the Cedar City
Commercial Club, held in the auditor
ium of the public library last Sat
urday night, the following named club
members were chosen as delegates to
the Zion Park-Grand Canyon road
convention to be held in Hurricane to
morrow: Mayor Arch Swapp, Lchi W.
Jones, Forest Supervisor, W. M. Maco
Dr. M. J. Macfarlane, John P. Fuller
and R. L. Jones.
The meeting was heartily in favor
of pushing tho projected road im
provement and made it manifest that
the club would back its delegates to
the limit in trying to put through a
progressive road program.
With Saint George, Kannb, Hurri
cane and Ccdnr City of one mind in
the matter of opening a road to tho
Grand Canyon, there can be no doubt
thut tho road will be built nnd thnt
before many months.
Nowhere has there been anything
but enthusiasm for the proposed road
except among a few stockmen of Utah
who run cattle or sheep in tho Ariz
ona strip, and whose sense of justice
has been outrnged by the heavy graz
ing tax put on their stock by Ariz
ona. Not even a majority of these
stockmen nro opposed to spending a
little money on the proposed rond, as
the more broadminded of them rcal-
izo that the tax fight vith, Arizonn
has no bearing on the proposal of
these Utah communities to invest a
littlo of their funds in a money maker
in tho shape of a road to the Grand
Canyon.
' Those who feel the injustice of thcj
.Arizona tax can bid for and deserve
public sympathy with more consist-'
ency if they join their townsmen in
this great public effort to connect Zion
! Park and the Grand Cnnyon.

come assurance that the Federal Re

Already this news is helping to
steady the wool market nnd to ease
the money situntion in the wool pro.
ducing sections. Cedar City is one
(of the towns to receive tho benefits
I of this step on tho purt of the Federal
Government.

WORK WILL NOT STOP ON fl
CEDAR'S NEW HOTEL 1
At a director's meeting of tho Cc- H
dnr Hotel Company, which is erect- H
ing the big hotel on Main street, it H
wns decided to pubIi work on the H
building as fast as possible. The of- H
fleers of the company have author- mM
ized the Record to contradict the cur- H
rent rumor thnt the work on the H
building will be suspended before H
long. It is thought thnt tho rumor H
originnted from tho policy of tho H
company of ordering their building H
mntcrial only us fast as it will be H
needed, since it is very likely that H
prices of materials will come down HH
in tho near future. H
