Winegar.

The heart of the area being filled by this commuter population is the curve of highlands sweeping from south to northeast of the city of Bountiful, and as far up the Wasatch slope as the wave-cut benches of old Lake Bonneville. INTO THIS scenic bay in the hills literally thousands of fam- dies have moved in the past 10 years, and the trend shows no sign of letting up. An expected problem is where their children, and indeed they themselves, will relax and play outdoors. Apart from school grounds, the area south and southeast of Bountiful has no public park facilities now and is unlikely ever to have any, for residential development has pushed up the land prices.

We dont care too much about cattle who roam the ranches in remote spots of the West wearing pants. But we do think that farmers and ranchers should think about clothing their animals who are in view of the highways. "THE FARMERS enough trouble these with parities, imports have days and price supports without having to worry about putting a pair of Capri slacks on a cow who grazes on the east 40, near the super highway, I said.
