,H 0f (armors and townsmen to u grcat-
H er extent than at any time in the
H past. Tho qucsXlon tuts bocomo so
H serious as to make It posslblo that
H the local sugar factory will be closed
H (his pennon, business men and ot-
H (loialfl are told.
M Every one Is ulways ready to work
IH at an industry like the sugar plant
IB and naturally tlio samo pooplo wish'
IH tu keep such an industry when they
IH already havo it.
, lH Some ot tho farmers of Lcbl und
"fiH American Fork socm to be .nrgulng
jjH tho question ot supporting tho local
lB factory vs. tho Co-operutlvo Sugar Co.
H known us tho l'loncor Sugar company
m or the Sprlugvlllo plant. Thoso at
H the head of tho Utah-Idaho Sugur Co.
H have predicted that unless tho farm-
H ers hereabout take moro intorcat In
H xurporllnc tho local fectory, that it
H -hIU pt tUely romaln closed during
H the coming winter Benson. Should this
IH recur, If will mean (lint atout
M 140,600, which was paid each' your to
H American Fork laborers for wages,
H will go clsowliero.
B According to Mr. John Juckllu, lo-
H cal representative of tho sugar com
M pany, about halt of tho farmers here
M had Blgncd up tho Utah-Idaho con-
M tract. He states that his company's
iB contract Js us good u contract in ev-
H cry nay as thoso of outsldo factor-
H ies, and that tho fnrmors who ship
H their beets out, will not havo tho op-
H portuulty to secure tho pulp nnd
m manure It is estimated, according
j to Mr. Jacklln, thai over G00 londs
H ot manuro alono were haulod from
H the fuctory grounds during tho 1919-
1 1920 season, frco ot charge to tho
B .farmers. This-fs.vhlueilritfll.OO i'
'm load, nnd would amount to over $13,-
H COO that was given to tho farmers.
The condition seems to bo worse In
J l-rhl than hero and yet, Mr. Jacklln
reports tho conditions In this locality
I Icing far from satisfactory.
J Thero Is ono fact that cannot bo
M Rotten away from, nnd that 1b If any
J local Industry hiring local lnbor Is
B closed each and every ono of us loses
moro or less. This should bo con
M sldcrcd by farmers, laborers and busl
1 ness people on any Issue atrccting tho
B town.
