Seismograph Service Corporation, operating out of Spanish Fork, is conducting a number of tests which will give oil seekers a better idea of whether the precious natural resource might lurk underground. Using complicated gear, the researchers use sound waves to map geologic structures far below the surface of the ground. These patterns, once determined around the lake shore, can be extended in part into Utah Lake to indicate what types of geologic formations might be under the lake. Two oil companies have expressed interest in obtaining drilling rights in the lake, Gulf Oil and Chevron. The Bureau of Land Management, which administers federal land, including the lake, hasn't made up its mind whether or not to allow "offshore" drilling in the lake. Legal complications over ownership could result with the state in any case, but it is still not known whether there could be oil beneath the county. That's exactly what Seismograph Service Corp. hopes to determine. The company's trucks, both those used for "listening" to the waves bounced off formations far below and those which cause the waves, can be seen in different locations on BLM land in the southern part of the county.

Bringhurst, director of the Utah State Fair, was re-elected as president of the Utah Association of Fairs and Shows during the annual convention of the organization at the county fairgrounds in Murray recently. Some 140 individuals, representing various county fairs and livestock shows, attended the informative all-day session. Other officers include Earl Howe, Salt Lake County Fair, vice president; Paul Edmunds, U.S. Traffic Fatalities Creeping Up, Buf sfay Below Pre-Crisis Levels CHICAGO — Traffic fatalities in the first two months of 1975 increased six per cent from the total recorded for the first two months of 1974, the National Safety Council reported. However, the Council added that the fatality toll for the first two months of this year was still 19 per cent below the total recorded for the first two months of 1973, prior to the onset of the nation's fuel shortage with its accompanying lower driving speeds and higher gasoline costs. According to the Council, 6,120 traffic fatalities were recorded in the first two months of this year, as compared with 5,750 fatalities in the first two months of 1974 and 7,580 fatalities in the first two months of 1973. Council President Vincent Tofany said the six per cent fatality increase in the first two months of this year, as compared with the same period in 1974, was not unexpected because of the magnitude of fatality reduction in the initial months of last year. "The" nation experienced a 24 per cent drop in traffic deaths in the first live months of last year as compared with the same period in 1973," Mr Tofany said. "That figure would be difficult to match this year, because many of last spring's fuel shortage-induced factors are no longer part of today's traffic scene. "For example," he continued, "mileage dropped in the first few months of last year because of spiraling gasoline prices and actual shortages of gasoline at the pumps. Now, gasoline prices have leveled off, stations have OPEN TILL 9 ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT INCOME HELP AT THE INCOME T/W mm .JMBBLOCK I ' • Prtve- I OS I. 100 S. - 175-3431 • Ortm • 70* $.

An award- was also presented to Barbara Whitbeck in memory of Willis Whitbeck, a longtime worker with the Utah State Fair and the Salt Lake County Fair who passed away "Another fuel shortage induced factor of last spring — the reduction of highway speed limits to 55 miles per hour—is still with us," Mr. Tofany said. last year. Gov. Calvin L. Rampton urged association members to stress agriculture, livestock and ranching exhibits at the fairs. He said it must not be forgotten that, in spite of a decreasing percentage of people involved in agriculture, the production of food is still the number one priority in the state. Featured speaker, Dr. Dan Jones, political science professor at the Utah State University outlined the results of a recent public opinion poll he conducted among Utah residents with respect to fairs. He pointed out that 90 per cent of Utahns polled are in favor of annual fairs, 70 per cent had been to a fair, 92 per cent felt there should be a state fair, that schools should be dismissed for special days and that newspapers and TV should give prime time to help promote the function. Art Jones of the Extension Service, Utah State University told the group that county fairs are an ideal setting for Bicentennial programs because they are annual events, are accepted by the state's residents and are in harmony with the goals of the American Revolution Bicentennial Commission.
