Two Women Injured in Auto Crash One woman underwent surgery at Utah Valley Hospital and another .suffered a temporary loss of memory as the result of a collision at the intersection of 200 E. Center St. Saturday at about 11:15 a.m. For a short time after the accident, Mary Breinholt Andrus, 24, couldn't remember that she had been married the day before^ to Wayne Andrus, who was driving one of the cars involved. They live at 1065 E. 560 N., Provo. Mrs. Reza (Azar) Alijanian, 26, of 340 W. 920 S., Provo, who was driving the other car, suffered injuries to her-face and underwent surgery at Utah Valley Hospital later in the afternoon. Her son, a passenger, received a bump on the head but was released from the hospital. •Provo City Police are investigating the incident. Clocks with simple pine cabinets, made by early American blacksmiths or carpenters, are worth thousands of dollars today. He was the former owner of the service station located on that corner and confessed that about seven years ago he put the marker there. He said that he had been having trouble with people cutting the corner and running over his shrubs and plants. Every other attempt he made to maintain the landscaping there seemed to fail. Then he took a trip to Yellowstone Park. It was there he found the small monument which he said had been discarded by the park officials. It had been used to mark a pool called the Celestine Pool. But when the pool dried Retiring Scoutmaster Being Honored Today By VERLAINE ALLEN AMERICAN FORK - After 26 years in scouting, Andy Block is retiring as scoutmaster of Troop 12, sponsored by the American Fork Third LDS Ward. An open house honoring Andy will be held today at his home, 475 N. 300 W., from Up5 p.m. Mr. Block has achieved many awards, and his troops and "his boys" have compiled an enviable record. A Silver Beaver. Andy has received nine Scoutmaster Honor Certificates; and five of his troops have been named in the "Top Fifty" troops of the LDS Church. Many residents of the county have had contact with • Andy Block and his scouts, some perhaps without knowing it. His troops have been responsible for many conservation projects in the American Fork area. About 10 years ago, Christmas trees used to be gathered by the city and burned. At Mr. Bock's suggestion, scouts gathered them and used them in conservation projects, such as filling in gullies to prevent erosion. His scouts also have planted trees, maintained a mile of deer hunting trail assigned them by the Forest Service, and initiated a project of filling in "Yukies' Hollow." Another service project carried out by his troops was helping people carry flowers to graves on Decoration Day. Many groups have enjoyed outings at Iverson's Hollow, Andy and his scouts received permission to "pioneer" the hollow by building bridges, clearing underbrush and making the area a little bit nicer. Mrs. Polly Block said she'll miss many things about her husband's scoutmaster calling. She said she might miss having birdhouses built in her livingroom on Christmas Eve, or missing an anniversary celebration so her husband could help a boy pass a merit badge test; or perhaps she'll miss having her sheets cut up and hemmed on her kitchen table for first aid demonstrations. She said she'i'l probably miss preparing menus and shopping lists for up to 25 people at a time for camping trips. She also thinks it won't be long before her husband is active in another phase of scouting. BYU Students Finding Job Opportunities Up Expanded businesses in the Provo-Orem area have increased significantly the opportunities for BYU students to find part-time employment during the fall and winter semesters. This observation was made by Don Lyman, campus employment supervisor, whose office handles some 5,700 part-time jobs on campus for students and helps also to find off-campus jobs. Although many of the 5,000 off-campus jobs are obtained by students themselves directly with the employer, the campus employment office is another contact point for local merchants to find part-time workers. With more than 40 per cent of the student body working some time during the year, competition seems to be keen for almost every position because there are more people seeking part-time work than there are jobs available, Mr Lyman said. Reserved for Students BYU reserves as much work as possible for students on a part-time basis, as do many off-campus employers. "However, there is not a large number of openings because some positions involve a continuance of work or rehiring of those who have worked previously in a certain position," Mr. Lyman emphasized. "Students with employment skills and work experience usually far better than inexperienced applicants," he noted. Girls especially need skills such as shorthand and typing to obtain jobs since there are relatively few unskilled jobs for them. Basic jobs available in the area include stenographic, clerical, sales, domestic, custodial, labor, trades, agricultural, gardening, and food services. 20 Hours Limit Students on campus are allowed to work an average of 15 to 20 hours each week — but no more than 20 hours because of time required for school work. An average monthly income ranges from $100 to $150, with payment on campus made twice monthly. Mr. Lyman suggested that in order to ob'tain a part-time job, a student should have a favorable class schedule that includes a block of several hours free of classes during the daytime and coming at the same time each day. up, there was no need for the marker. So Mr. Forsyth brought the marker home and put it on the corner. It worked wonders. As luck would have it, he says the first Provoan to run over it was Mayor Verl G. Dixon who blew a tire on his car in the process. Provo Board Of Education Sets Agenda The Provo Board of Education will wade through an unusually long list of items on its monthly agenda when it meets Tuesday evening at 7:30 in the district offices. Among the things to be considered by the board are the annual financial report, school fees in secondary schools, dress and grooming standards, sections of a new policy manual for the board, and a revised study of the availability of building funds for a new high school. Other agenda items will be a discussion of heating oil limitations and a review of back to - school acitivities. The board will also consider changes in elementary school boundaries which will take effect immediately this fall. Poverty Line Is Going Up WASHINGTON (UPI) - The government's poverty line—the level of income below which a family is considered impoverished—has gone up like everything else. The Labor Department said Tuesday it has reset the poverty line at $4,300 a year for a non- farm family of four. This is $100 over the last guideline published in December, 1972.
