Forty-Mile Line Over Desert
From Lund to Cedar City
SALT LAKE CITY. July 24.
A 40 mile railroad over the desert
between Lund and Cedar City,
rushed to completion in S7 days
at a cost of $1,049,000, was one
of j the incidentals In the recent
reception by the state of Utah to
President Harding. .-'..'...
in April 2, last, the right of
way men, acting for the Union
Pacific railroad, , secured, posses
sion of the needed ground for the
construction of the railway from
the ' Salt Lake route main Tine
at Lund to the entrance of ZIon
National Park, and on the same
' day the first scraperf ul of earth
was turned on the grade.
The contractor strung his men
out in sections and as fact as the
r section was completed, the track
laying crew took possession and
the ties and rails were set in
. place. Crowding upon their heels
was the ballast crew. And so the
work was rushed toward Cedar
City. ; - "'v..
In the r midst of this orgy of
toll came word that the President
of the United States would risk
Zion Park, providing ' the track
was' in shape for his big special
train upon his arrival in the west.
Every man on the system from
the highest executive to the lowli
est Section hajid plunged into the
work with redoubled energy.
' Whereiip there came the an
councement that President Hard
ing's trip to southern Utah had
been cancelled, . and the work
dragged. - :
But again came cheering news,
definite this time., that the pres
ident would come. Ignoring dust
, and desert heat, the men plunged
Into the Job again, determined to
finish the road In time.
Only 48 hours before the arri
val of the president' train the
depot site at Cedar City was
strewn' with foundations and de

houses that had been carted
away -or torn down. Ballast trains
brought In clean white gravel. An
approach 20 feet wide for auto
mobile travel was graded and
surfaced and grounds were roped
off. ! - ; A " t -

railway track and the station

The superintendent of the work
rode into Cedar City on a pilot
train, ahead of the presidential
! train and met his yard foreman.
who was just completing his sec
ond continuous 24-hour shift that
week. ; He was covered (with dirt
and grime and a half-Inch growth
of rough beard bristled on his
Kace. I I I The superintendent pre
ailed ; upon him to get cleaned
'up and take a little nap before
the president arrived. The-man
dragged himself into a car within
600 feet of the spot where the
president's special was "parked."
and slept so soundly that he nev

t During the construction' of the
f new branch, ballast trains bring
ing gravel were given right of
way over every other train on the

biggest day's output was 119 cars.

.... Hew Device to Save Coal
CHICAGO, July 25 The leaky
VadJator and the 'radiator ' that
sounds like a strige in a boiler
factory must , go. The research
committee of the National As
sociation of Building Owners and
Managers declares it has discov
ered means of saving thousands
of tons of coal a year by prevent
ing wastage of steam.
The committee has Invented a
stethoscope. It works quite like
the one the doctor uses when he
tests your 21ungs or your heart.
The escape of steam in the radia
tor traps can be gauged the way
the doctor finds out about a mal
functioning heart. The stethos
cope i placed against the radia
tor trap and the operator listens
to the music of the steam. Whe
ther It murmurs, gurgles' or
pounds, the radiator trap doctor
knows Immediately what the mat
ter is by using bis stethoscope.
It is claimed.
The committee In charge of the
; work was headed by Col. Gordon
Strong: of Chicago, assisted by
-professors and ' students otLewis

Ing was done.- ' j . . , .

r Is Mrs. Mai lory s reign i as
queen of American tennis about
to end? Close students of the
sport Jwtto think so are basing
their belief on the rapid strides
made by her strongest rival for
the title Miss Helen Wills of
California. This seventeen
year old California girl who, at
; fifteen, beat some of the I top
; ranking stars of the country
and. was rated twelfth natlon-
ally. Is to play her first match
in the East in the Seabrigbt
i tournament, which opens on
July 30. and critics will see for
I themselves just how ' much
i nearer she has moved to the
f top of the tennis -standing.
til there is a very marked change
in the cost of air transport, and
in the financial limitations under
which postal services are compell
ed to work, limitations which re
quire some sort of proportion be
tween the postage charged and
the cost of transport, j :
; "Moreover," the General added
"an essential condition of mall
service is regularity under all
conditions, in all weathers, and
at all times of the year. It Is
commonly assumed tnat ir a me
thod of transporting mails can be
devised which is considerably
more rapid, even if more expen-
I sire, than
anything already in
existence, there is an immediate
public demand that it be used for
the carriage of mailsj There Is,
of course, some truth in this; but
the experience that the Import
ance attached to the mere speed
of mail communication can easily
: "It Is probable, therefore, that
for a long time to come air mails
must be limited to urgent corres-
pondence on which a special fee
is charged, and that such corres
pondence will only be a relatively
small fraction of the total mail.
The actual volume of air mall
carried will depend on three fac
tors, regularity, gain In time, and
cost of conveyance; that is, exact
ly the same conditions as those on
which the development of passen
ger and goods traffic will depend,
and to which the technical devel
opment of commercial aviation
must be directed." !

words, end it sounded like that

and creaky. !
I had delayed but a second or
or two, yet Dr. Pettit's car was
already far down, the road. With
the thought that my baby might
be dead or dying at the end of
my journey for like all mothers,
my fears flew first to my child

along, forcing it to its utmost
