LAST EDITION At Guernsey on the Platte river the Utah Construction com- pany of Ogden has just completed the placing of the largest reser- voir gate in fae United States. Weighing 400 tons, it is 50 by 52 feet, and is exceeded in size by no other gate in the world, ex- cept one in Gormany, which is a Jittle larger. The Guernsey .dam will cost and will cover a consider- able area of bench land, part of which will be watered by pump- ing. Twelve thousand kilowatts in power is generated which is uti- lized in pumping. The Utah Construction company reaches out over much of the western country and has extensive undertakings us far away as the west coast of Mexico, where it is putting on the finishing touches to a railroad job. The company has a name of keeping to r.U- schedules. Last year, on. the work at Weed, in connection witn the Natron cutoff, it had 27 steam shovels. It had agreed to complete the contract by July 1. anil to do so rushed ia steam shovel after steam shovel. Whun the first day of July arrived, the work was done. Some one iias 'said that since the company was organized in 1900 it has completed 000 in contracts. One of the arguments, against cast iron pipe in Utah has been the cost of the product as' com- pared with lighter steel pipe. "With cast !--on being pro- duced at Ironron, near Provo, the price should be reduced, as the long haul from Birmingham or Pueblo In the past has added a high freight charge to the cost The first Utah cast iron pipe is now being installed in apart- ment houses i'l _ It is a forecast of big things to be accomplished by the iron in- Uustry oC this .-state. No longer wi'il it necessary to call on Birmingham, Alabama, to supply us with cast iron pipe. After a time other iron prod- ucts will come on the market from Ironton, and Utah will be pushed forward as a manufacturing state. u Ogden' man said he hoped to" see the r.outhern California people successful 'in their efforts on the Boulder dam -project. -The dam will develop southern he admitted, "and that is what this b'ldc country wants.

I (By The Associated j Knoxvillo Baptist Ministers" asso- ciation was considering further ac- tion today in its effort to prevent Judge Ben B. Lindsey of Denver from speaking before the. Optimist club here next April. In the meantime. 'Judge Lindsey charac- terized the attempt as "pish, tush and poppycock." The ministerial association re- cently passed resolutions asking the civic club to withdraw an in- vitation which has been extended to the jurist. The ministers bas- ed their objections on a series of articles published in.the Red Book magazine in which they allege Judge Lindsey upholds and advo- cates "free love." The Optimist club refused to revoke its invitation and announc- ed that Judge Lindsey will speak April 7 on "svhatevcr subject he pleases." DRIFTS TO FJIEE LOVE Judge Lindsey said: "So far as my speeches in Knoxville is con- cerned the Baptist brethren will need many more reinforcements than I think they will be able to muster if they prevent my deliver- ing it." "I am not an advocate of free love, but I do recognize the fact that modern sosiuty is drifting more and' more toward it. every day. I am seeking a sens- ible and permanent cure for an evil that no sane man or woman will deny that is more than the -Baptist brethren of Ten- nessee have ever done." "Thus far they can lay claim only to haye made their state the laughing stock of the thinking men and women- oJt the-worid'. In-fair- ness "I must say that I do not believe all the pastors of Tennes- see hold the same beliefs as the few who have befogged the vision of a glorious commonwealth with their bigotry.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
