The hour-long color film was produced by KBYU-TV during the 4M> months that Dr. Jensen and his crew worked in the Dry Mesa Quarry in west central Colorado near Delta. The movie will be shown at 8 p.m. in the Egyptian Theater in Delta Tuesday, then at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday for junior and senior high school students, and again at 8 p.m. for the general public. Viewing on TV First showing in .Utah will be over Channel 11 next month, after which it'will be sent to Washington, D.C., where the Public Broadcasting Service will air it on some 225 public television stations throughout the nation. Following public TV showing, the movie will be trimmed to about 30 minutes for educational use and other TV showings in the United States and foreign countries. Under a community services grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the BYU film crew was able to capture some of the greatest dinosaur discoveries in history during some of the drama and toils of the actual recovery of the fossilized bones. 100 Per Cent True The movie was shot on location and is 100 per cent true, according to John Linton, producer and director of the documentary. The movie centers around the discoveries of Dr. Jensen ("Dinosaur Jim") who relates the story of his visiting Union Pacific Replaces Track At $37 Million Union Pacific Railroad is investing $37 million this year for rail replacement and track maintenance work, John C. Kenefick, UP's president, announced today. The program calls for replacement of 295 miles of main line rail. Quarter-mile strings of continuous welded rail will be installed on 290 miles and the remaining five miles will be conventionally bolted 39 and 78-foot welded rail. New 133-pound rail will also be installed in 45 miles of curves at various main line locations throughout the system. To round out the track laying program, 200 miles of main, branch line and side tracks are slated for replacement with secondhand 131 and 133-pound rail.

While visiting the Joneses, Dr. Jensen noticed one of their recent finds and recognized it as a toe bone of a meat-eating dinosaur, twice as large as any other ever before found of a carnivore from that particular period of time. Largest Dinosaur He and the Joneses drove to the spot where the toe bone was found, and an exciting new fossil bed was discovered. Dr. Jensen returned to the area for about six months of digging during good weather last year to uncover the largest dinosaur ever found on earth.
