September Morn Due In Excellent Form A turn-of-the-century painting of a lightly clad maiden, titled September Morn," once set the world's art critics musing on the beauties of nature.

OGDEN (Special)—Ogden registered its fifth traffic fatality of the year Saturday afternoon when a 6-year-old child ,darted in front of a car on Kiesel Avenue just south of 24th Street about 1:05 p.m..and was fatally injured. The child was Randy Telford, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Telford, 1001 Washington Blvd., who was crossing Diesel Avenue from east to west about 135 feet south of the 24th Street intersection when the accident occurred, according to Traffic Sgt. L. G. Bennett. . Tossed Under Car The car which struck the youngster was being driven south. on Xiesel Avenue by Mrsl Marilyn Turner, 21, 757-2nd St. The child darted "but from behind another car directly into the path of the Turner car, officers reported. According to reports of the ac cident, the child was thrown onto the left front fender, across the hood and then slid in front and under the left front wheel of the Turner car. No Citation Planned He was taken to Thomas D. Dee Memorial Hospital by city fire department ambulance, where he died almost immediately after arrival. Sgt. Randy Telford was born in Ogden April 17, 1946, a son of Carl R. and Dean Slade Telford Surviving are his parents and a sister, Kay Telford, Ogden; four grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. C.

The steel wage case settlement: shattered wage and price ceilings and the recent ; Of fice of Price Stabilization order designed to preserve a part of the so-called stabilization program is unrealistic, inequitable and impossible to administer. These were emphatic conclusions of Lawrence F. Lee, president of the United States Chamber of Commerce and southern insurance company executive when he arrived in Salt Lake City Saturday to address the opening session of the Interstate Conference of Employment Security Agencies which will open Monday. Only Alternatives Mr. Lee said the only alterna- ives at this point are complete controls or abandonment of all wage and price controls so the 'orces of competition ,can fund- ion to bring about a realistic ad- iustment of prices. He expressed confidence that the controls would be dropped—and soon. The recent OPS or'der allowing manufacturers to pass on a part of their increased'materials costs, he declared, is grossly unfair because among some 175,000 rr*nu- facturing firms in the'country, materials costs range all the way from 10 to about 78 per cent. The price relief, he pointed out, would have a comparable wide range/The provision permitting manufacturers who consider themselves unfairly treated to appeal their case, he continued, is impossible because many firms would go broke while waiting for relief. Many have already gone broke, he added. 'Abandon All Controls' The only answer to the tangle, he asserted, is the abandonment of all controls.

Asked if he believed the Re publicans could carry any south ern states, he replied that he believed "the New Deal and Fair Deal party could lose some south ern states." He said he planned to confer with Gov. Adlai Stevenson, Democratic presidentia nominee, next Tuesday in Spring field, 111. He has already con ferred with Dwight D. Eisenhower,' the Republican nominee. State Hospital Patient Caught Af te* Breaking Word, Flight A Utah State Hospital patient, taken from the Provo institution to Utah State Prison for a base- bail game Saturday escaped and enjoyed four hours of freedom before being picked up By Salt Lake City plainclothesmen.

Council Given Dim View On Tax Cuts ;* r*.* Researchers .Throw Cold Water on 'Sales Exemptions' The Utah Legislative Council,! ooking for * way to lighten the- ax burden, received little en- :ouragement from its staff rc- ;earchers Saturday. One progress report threw cold water on Gov. J. Bracken Lee's plan to exempt foods And prescription drugs from the 2 per cent sales tax. Another warned hat . Utah must add another penny to its gas tax, issue bonds or do both to catch up on its highway needs. Cites Revenue Cut Mont G. Kenney, special staff consultant for the tax-cut ques- ion, said the food-drug exemp- ions would drop revenues 20 to 25 per cent, or from $3,380,000 to $4,225,000 a year—an annual tax saving of $5 to $6 per capita. If the Legislature decides a reduction should be made, he said, the cut should b« made on the jercentage, not by exemptions. A per cent tax would drop revenues slightly below the governor's proposal. Requires Study But, he added, "without a com- jrehensive study of the relative :ax burden on property, income and other tax sources, it cannot be justifiably concluded that the present sales tax is unfair, undesirable or inequitable: Dr. EIRoy Nelson, director of the University of Utah's Bureau of Business and Economic Research, said rising construction costs have offset last year's penny-a-gallon gas tax boost, leav ing the state $6 million a year short of what it needs for roads. $23 Million Needed He said state and federal funds now total $17 million annually while the .lowest need estimates are $23 million. His report for the council's highway subcommittee was no final, but it contained some sug gestions for getting out of the woods, including: 1. A 6c gas tax, common among western states, which would help keep up with current needs. , 2. • A bond issue which would Lee Offers Expected 250,000 Welcome to 1952 State Fair Flanked by E. A.

Vernon Says Slate Probes 'Million-Dollar' Gambling Evidence that gambling is a million dollar industry in Utah has prompted a state-wide investigation with the co-operation of local peace officers. Atty.-Gcn. permit the state to catch up on Clinton D. Vernon said Saturday. onference to be Vewhouse Hotel. held at the According to W. A. Williams, Santa Fe, N. M., farmer and area fice president of the National Association of Soil Conservation Districts, the meeting is one of seven similar conferences scheduled in key farming areas of the nation this year. Utah Delegation George Barton, Manti rancher, and a director of the national association, will head the Utah delegation at the Salt Lake City sessions. Other delegates include Lawrence Thorderson, Cleveland, Emery County, president, Utah Soil Conservation District Assn.; George M. Hinckley, Provo, vice- president; John D. Hooper, •looper, Weber County, secretary- treasurer, and Mark Thackeray, Croyden, Morgan County, former state president. Evelyn J. .Keithley of N»w Mexico, one of the nation's leading woman conservationists, will be among out-of-state delegates. As conference leader, Mr. Williams pointed out that the soil conservation districts ar* 'formed voluntarily by farmers and ranchers under state laws and have no connection with the federal government The' conservation districts are locally managed by volunteers who freely give their time and money to their tasks.". Ask City Support One aim of the Salt Lake City conference will be to study methods for enlisting the aid of business and civic groups in support of the conservation districts. Top federal officials representing agencies administering public lands in the west will meet with the ranchers and farmers its road backlog 3. A bond issue and a tax increase, with the additional penny earmarked for bond repayment. Levied for Bonds Dr. Nelson noted that 14 states have issued bonds for highway construction within the last year or two and that Utah's first gas :ax was levied to pay off similar bonds. He said-his report also would recommend a reorganization of the State Road Commission along the lines proposed by Gov. Lee in his message to the 1949 Legislature — a state-wide advisory board with a single administrative head. Where Gov. Lee's plan called for an advisory board member from each of the state's seven judicial districts, Dr. Nelson said he favored a smaller five-member board as adopted by Colorado last year. The council deferred action on both reports — on Dr. Nelson's until it is completed r.nd on Mr. Kenney's until he has finished a similar study on state income taxes. J .He said his office is checking into all reports of gambling activity and turning the findings over to local officers. First fruit of the campaign was harvested Thursday night in a raid on Tony's Golden Nugget in Eureka, Juab County, which netted a roulette wheel, a dice table, a "21" layout and several cases of whisky. The proprietor and an alleged "dealer" were arrested. Atty.-Gen. Vernon said his attention was called to the widespread gambling activity by figures from the U. S. Bureau of Internal Revenue showing that gamblers had paid more than $60,000 taxes in Utah since Novem- ber, the tax is a 10 per cent excise on all wagers. Another $28,000 has been paid in stamps for coin gaming devices. "If that much gambling has been reported, there must be a jreat deal more that hasn't been," :he attorney general said. "My office is checking into it, but, since we lack the staff and the budget, we will ask local peace officers to make the raids." TEMPLE MEET LDS Leaders Go to L. A.
