The Cover

This gleaming white sculpture of

President Spencer W« Kimball seem¬

ed almost to glow with an inner

light as it as unveiled under spot¬

lights at the front of the SUP Heri¬

tage Hall stage, It bears the name of

Arizona artist, Justin Fairbanks, and

the date, 1981. The marble bust

however, was carved by Avard Fair¬

banks in Italy from his son’s original

in clay. It will replace a white plaster

cast on display in the building *s

A Delinquent Outcast at 17;

Became LDS Exponent

Every challenge offers the alternatives of future success

or failure* No Mormon pioneer ever realized this more

clearly than young Harry Roberts who had to face in addition

to all other challenges of pioneer settlement the

relatively unique challenge of being disfellowshipped from

the church at the young age of 17 years for riotous conduct

unbecoming a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of

Latter-day Saints* Would he continue his constant associa¬

tion and activity with one of the wildest, hard drinking,

gun fighting Utah miners, or would he accept the challenge

of Bishop Edwin Wooley by turning his life around and

following gospel precepts?

His extraordinarily successful response to that challenge

is still one of the greatest examples of personal growth in

the history of Mormondom. That delinquent, nearly il¬

literate boy became President Brigham Henry Roberts of

the First Quorum of Seventy, elected Utah Congressional

Delegate and author of thirty major books, including the

monumental Comprehensive History of the Church of

Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints* The editions of his

writings have totaled nearly three-quarters of a million

copies, and his reputation nearly a half century after his

death is that of a Mormon genius who, probably more than

any other individual, became the greatest defender and ex¬

ponent of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,

His response to his unique challenge was an overwhelming

success.

So may it be with the Sons of Utah Pioneers and our

challenge to name memorialize all Utah pioneers. If we

falter with only 6,000 names, our response to the

challenge will be failure. However, if we each personnally

commit diligently to memorialize all our pioneer ancestors

and invite all our friends and neighbors to join with us, a

spiritual success not dissimilar to that of Brigham H*

Roberts may attend our efforts.

Three Library Windows

Shattered by Vandals

The silent darkness of a Saturday

night at SUP headquarters was shat¬

tered by vandals who fired shells at

the large windows of the Pioneer

Historical Research Library*

Overlooking the building's en¬

trance, the double-glazed windows

were struck repeatedly by bullets,

fired from the parking lot area.

Twice, they penetrated both outer

and inner panes*

Three of the units were eventual¬

ly replaced. The loss was covered by

insurance which went into force only

weeks earlier.

Jack Nielsen, SUP Executive Sec¬

retary, discovered and reported the

damage to police. Investigation of

the scene produced few leads to help

identify the culprits*

4

President’s Page

Three Challenges:

• Memorial Names

• Recruit Members

• Memorial Projects

*Tf we commit

diligently.,.

Spiritual success

may attend,11

Incidentally, neither Brigham H. Roberts nor his excep¬

tional pioneer mother, Ann Everington Roberts, a/k/a

Ann Everington Wooley, have yet been memorialized in

our Pioneer Hall of Fame* They are but 2 of the 74,000

names we have yet to secure to convert our challenge into a

meaningful success.

I trust that all chapters will have by the end of January,

1982, actively working committees on name memorialization,

membership and chapter projects. We can successfully

chip away at our name memorialization challenge if each

chapter will submit monthly at least 10 names for

memorialization. Our work' load will be lighter and the

benefits of our membership more extensively shared if each

chapter would sponsor at least 6 new members each

month. And finally, our special mission to preserve the

heritage of our pioneer forebears will be immeasureably

enhanced if each chapter will complete during 1982 a

meaningful pioneer memorialization project* At no other

time in the history of our society has the success of our

society depended so much on each individual member*

East Mill Creek Presents

$2500 For SUP Building

Responding to National President

William Critchlow’s appeal for $25

per member to pay final expenses on

the new headquarters building, the

East Mill Creek Chapter has

presented a check for $2500 to the

National Society*

II thus became the first chapter to

meet that challenge in full* The

check was presented to John J.

Nielsen, Executive Secretary, and

also a member of the chapter. Two

other chapters have made partial

payments, he added. The National

Board commended the chapter for

their loyalty and support, and urged

other chapters to follow their exam¬

ple,

f 'This is the kind of response we

have been hoping for, M said Presi¬

dent Critchlow.

Bust Honors

LDS President

Eight years to the day after Presi¬

dent Spencer W. Kimball 's ordina¬

tion as President of The Church of

Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a

marble bust honoring him was

unveiled at SUP National Head¬

quarters, The ceremonies took place

at 4 p.rxi,, Wednesday, December

30, under direction of National

President William F. Critchlow III,

The bust was carved earlier this

year in Italy, of white cararra mar¬

ble, by Dr, Avard Fairbanks from an

original by his son, Justin Fairbanks,

Participating with the father-son

sculptors in the unveiling was Grif¬

fith Lyn Kimball, of Draper, Utah,

president of the Kimball Family

Association. Representing President

Kimball was his personal secretary,

Arthur Haycock,

ball's hometown. The clay original

was started there during President

Kimball's visit, and completed dur¬

ing additional sittings in Salt Lake

City, with the assistance of his

father,

A bronze reproduction was com¬

pleted for display in Thatcher, and

the elder sculptor completed a mar¬

ble bust for presentation to President

Kimball, It is in President Kimball's

office. Subsequently, he was asked

to do the second marble carving.

President Kimball and his family

were not present. On advice of his

doctor, he remained at home, and

other family members were atten¬

ding the funeral services for his

brother-in-law, Dr. Henry Eyring.

Arthur Haycock described his

feelings of eight years earlier when

— at the death of President Harold

B. Lee on December 26, 1973, the

mantle of leadership fell upon Presi¬

dent Kimball. He also paid tribute to

his leadership and described Presi¬

dent Kimball's affection for the peo¬

ple of the Gila Valley who spon¬

sored the original sculpture.

Speakers recalled President Kim¬

ball s participation in the SUP re-en¬

actment in 1947 of the original

Mormon Pioneer Trek.

In his concluding remarks, Presi¬

dent Critchlow recounted some im¬

pressive counsel he received from

President Kimball as the church

leader visited his home during a

stake conference assignment in

Ogden, President Kimball told the

young man that the Priests Quorum

was the most important group to

which he could belong. As he

followed President Kimball's advice,

other high school students followed

his example, leading to solution of a

problem with youth clubs at Ogden

High School.

INTRODUCES SCULPTOR

W. Phil Robbins, past national

SUP president, introduced Dr.

Avard Fairbanks, citing notable ac¬

complishments of the sculptor, who

is a life member of SUP, and who

explained the story of the Kimball

sculpture, and then introduced its

originator, his son.

Justin Fairbanks, head of the Art

Department at the College of

Eastern Arizona, in Gila, Arizona,

was commissioned by friends of

President Kimball to do the statue

during a Homecoming celebration in

Thatcn er, Arizona, President Kim¬

Dr. Avard Fairbanks addresses audience and press who

saw new marble sculpture unveiled at SUP building.


ORSON PRATT

Pioneer and Scientist

ORSON PRATT-

Self-taught in math¬

ematics and natural science,

he became an apostle

and missionary

ca. 1878)

(Courtesy of the LDS

Historical Department)

by Larry W. Draper

Treasurer of City Creek Chapter

On April 19, 1847 the Great

Mormon Trek was on* The

Vanguard Company left Winter

Quarters with 143 men, 3 women,

and 2 children. The most famous

member of the elite group was of

course Brigham Young, president of

the twelve and leader of the expedi¬

tion. But there were others (in¬

cluding seven members of the

twelve) who are not as well known

yet were just as important to the

company as was Brigham. One such

man was Orson Pratt. Pratt, al¬

though self-taught, was remarkably

well educated especially in mathe¬

matics and natural science. His ex¬

pertise proved invaluable to that first

company of pioneers and to all those

who followed.

EARLY LIFE

Orson was born in the brilliant

New England autumn of 1811. His

family was then residing in Hart¬

ford, Washington County, New

York, just sixty miles from the birth¬

place of the Prophet Joseph Smith in

Sharon, Vermont. His parents,

Jared Pratt and Charity Dickinson

were poor farmers which meant Or¬

son and his brothers as young men

were required to leave home to seek

work and provide for their own

education. Providing for his own

education Orson did with a passion

including the study of science and

mathematics as well as a careful

study of the Bible.

In September of 1830 Parley P.

Pratt paid a visit to Orson, his

younger brother, in order to intro¬

duce him to Mormonism. Parley's

message did not fall upon deaf ears

for what Orson heard rang true and

he submitted to baptism on

September 19th his 19th birthday.

The years that followed brought

many missions and many hardships

including participation in the long

march of Zion's Camp. In 1835 he

was ordained one of the original

twelve apostles of the new dispensa¬

tion which brought more missions

6

and no fewer hardships. In 1840 he

with several of the twelve went to

the British Isles to preach. Orson

labored in Scotland where he

published the first of his numerous

pamphlets and articles defending the

Church. Upon his return to America

he again labored as a missionary,

this time in the Eastern United

States and Canada. He returned to

Nauvoo in July of 1844 after hear¬

ing of the martyrdom of the Prophet

and assisted the twelve in their

preparation to move the church

west.

1847 TREK

When Orson left Winter

Quarters with the Vanguard Com¬

pany in early April of 1847 he was

well equipped to fulfill the role

assigned to him by Brigham Young,

His wagon contained the normal

provisions: food, seed, farming

equipment, hunting rifle, etc., but

also among these necessities were

many unique items. Orson's diary

gives a list of these unusual provi¬

sions,

‘‘During our stay in Winter

Quarters, we sent to England,

and procured the following in¬

struments preparatory to our

exploring expedition, viz: —

two sextants, one circle of

reflection, two artificial

horizons, two barometers,

several thermometers,

telescopes, etc.M

These items by no means were

unnecessary baggage for Orson. The

thermometer and barometer were

used to take readings which allowed

him to calculate elevation to a fair

degree of accuracy. The sextant was

used to measure distance and deter¬

mine latitude and longitude so the

company might know their position

on the map. Typical entries from his

diary exemplify the use of these in¬

struments:

"May 24th (1847) - at six

o ’clock this morning a few

flakes of snow descended. The

barometer stood at 26.433,

attached thermometer 40

deg., detached ther. 38 deg,,


PIONEER ODOMETER - a device very similar to this was designed by Orson

Pratt to measure the distance travelled by the 1847 Company.

f Courtesy of the LDS Historical Department)

showing a considerable change

both in weight and tempera¬

ture of the air since yesterday

morning, giving for tne height

of our camp above the level of

the sea 3370 feet,,.1'

“May 27th (1847)*,.a trigo¬

nometrical measurement with

the sextant gives the width of

the river at this place 792

yards* By a meridian observa¬

tion of the sun, determined the

latitude to be 41 deg. 50 min.

52 sec.”

ODOMETER

Another important contribution

which Orson made was to design a

device which would measure the

distance travelled by the company

each day. Some have suggested that

Orson was the inventor of this

device called the odometer (some¬

times called Roadometer) but this

cannot be so. Early in the 19th cen¬

tury odometers were used in

England and there are extant draw¬

ing of an odometer designed by

Leonardo Da Vinci dating to the

16th century* This is also clear

evidence that odometer designs were

in existance in Rome at the time of

Christ and possibly the first design

dates to Archimedes in 200 B.C«

Even though Orson is not the

first inventor of the odometer, his

accomplishment on the plains of

Nebraska is nevertheless praise¬

worthy for he completed the design

quickly and with remarable ease*

Again from his diary he explains:

4 'May 10th (1847) For

several days past, Mr*

Clayton, and several others,

have been thinking upon the

best method of attaching some

machinery to a wagon, to in¬

dicate the number of miles dai¬

ly travelled. I was requested

this forenoon, by Mr* B*

Young, to give this subject

some attention; accordingly,

this afternoon, I proposed tne

following method: — Let a

wagon wheel be of such a cir¬

cumference, that 360 revolu¬

tions make one mile, (It hap¬

pens that one the requisite

dimensions is now in camp.)

Let this wheel act upon a

screw, in such a manner, that

six revolutions of this screw

act upon a wheel of sixty cogs,

which will evidently perform

one revolution per mile. Let

this wheel of sixty cogs, be the

head of another screw, acting

upon another wheel of thirty

cogs; it is evident that in the

movements of this second

wheel, each cog will represent

one mile* Now, if the cogs

were numbered from O to 30,

7

the number of miles travelled

will be indicated during every

parf of the day. Let every sixth

cog of the first wheel, be

numbered from 0 to JO, and

this division will indicate the

fractional parts of a mile, or

tenths; while if any one should

be desirous to ascertain still

smaller divisional fractions;

each cog between this divi¬

sion, will give five and onethird

rods* This machinery

(which may be called the dou¬

ble endless screw) will be sim¬

ple in its construction, and of

very small bulk, requiring

scarcely any sensible additional

power, and the knowledge ob¬

tained respecting distances in

travelling, will certainly be

very satisfactory to every

traveller, especially in a coun¬

try, but little known* The

weight of this machinery need

not exceed three pounds*”

A few days later on May 16th, a

carpenter named Appelton Harmon

finished the construction and ac¬

curate milage of the pioneer trek

could then be recorded.

The contributions of Orson Pratt

to the Mormon migration to Utah

were numerous indeed, but of even

greater value was the example he set

of seeking truth throughout his life

regardless of the source.


50th Anniversary

One Year Away,

Reminds Historian

by E. Kay Kirkham

National Historian

Our 50th Anniversary , our Year

o* Jubilee, will arrive on Tuesday,

the 29th of March 1983 - all too

soon to commemorate this important

date in the history of our organiza¬

tion*

We quote from the 41 Brief His¬

tory of the National Society of the

Sons of Utah Pioneers” by Gustive

O* Larson (July 1963) -

'Tapers left by the late

Lawrence T* Epperson tell of

an organization meeting held

in the office of Heber Jex with

Epperson presiding* In this and

subsequent meetings a consti¬

tution and by-laws were for¬

mulated and on March 29,

1933, the Sons of LItah

Pioneers were incorporated as

a state society* ***J

It is proposed that this date be a

significant milestone in the history

of our enduring organization. To be

free of all indebtedness* To reach a

goal of perhaps 10,000 names in

our continuing pioneer memorial

Elaque program and that our history

e brought up to date in a printed

history to be available to all

members present and future.

These three goals are not un¬

reasonable and they can be ac¬

complished with the cooperation of

all of our present members and those

who will join with us in the months

to come. A program has already

been arranged for our complete

freedom from debt. With 6,000

pioneers memorialized out of an ap¬

proximate 80,000 in all, there is no

excuse here for not accepting such a

challenge. An up-dated history can

be written from the annals of our

past.

We invite each of our present

chapters to call upon their historians

to briefly summarize their chapter

history, to provide a date of organi¬

zation with initial chapter officers

and add to this the main and impor¬

tant events within their chapter

Mark Richards, at right, indicates the name of his great-great-grandfather,

Franklin D* Richards, on a plaque in the Sons of Utah Pioneers Memorial

Gallery. Looking on are, left to right, Bryan Richards, another brother; Elder

LeGrand Richards of the Council of the Twelve, their grandfather; and Alden

Richards, their father.

Rules to Elect Vice Presidents

The SUP National Board approv¬

ed new procedures Dec. 8 to elect

area vice presidents during the 1982

elections. The rules implement

changes of the Articles of Incorpora¬

tion approved by delegates at the

1981 Encampment.

Delegates at the Mesa Encamp¬

ment in October will vote for the

vice presidential candidates only for

their own area* The elections will

take place during area meetings at

the annual meeting*

Orson D* Wright, national socie¬

ty election committee chairman, and

two other past national presidents

comprise the national society elec¬

tion committee, who explained the

new process*

Nominations for area vice presi¬

dents will first be sought by the na¬

tional election committee in writing

from each chapter prior to June 1,

history. Send this with other chapter

information to the Historian at the

national headquarters office.

WE HAVE A NOBLE HERI¬

TAGE, LET'S ACCEPT THE

CHALLENGE OF OUR GOLDEN

ANNIVERSARY*

8

to be returned by July I.

Next, the combined list of

nominees for each area will be for¬

warded to currently serving area vice

presidents by July 15th* Chapters

which have not responded will be

contacted, and names may be sugested

by the current area vice presient,

with additions accepted until

August 1st*

Chapters favoring a candidate are

then free to announce their choice

and his qualifications*

The current area vice presidents

are responsible for verifying the final

ballot and scheduling and conducting

the area election meeting > to be held

before the general business meeting

of the Encampment. Nominations

from the floor may he added

Tellers will be appointed to report

results of each area's balloting to the

national president, to be announced

at the general business session.

Peak Use of

Building

in December

Holiday finery adorned Memorial

Gallery and Heritage Hall as the

new SUP building saw almost daily

use during December. One Saturday

saw three different groups enjoying

the facility.

Between Dedicatory Services

August and December 7, thirty-one

formal events were held in the

facilities of the SUP national head¬

quarters building, according to Ex¬

ecutive Secretary John J, Neilsen,

An additional 18 events were

scheduled before year-end, for a

total of 49*

Chapter meetings accounted for

most of the bookings, as ten

chapters met a total of 21 times,

two as many as four times each.

They came from as far away as Box

Elder Chapter, who held a “Big

Mac** banquet, with the coopera¬

tion of McDonald's restaurants*

REUNIONS AND RECEPTIONS

Three family organizations have

held reunions, and two wedding

receptions were scheduled by SUP

families. Five other events were held

by other organizations*

The building is available only to

SUP members and chapters and con¬

tributors to the Pioneer Gallery*

After a study of the actual costs

of operating the building for the

events of this trial period, the SUP

National Board instructed the Ex¬

ecutive Staff to increase the contri¬

butions requested of those using it in

1982*

In addition to the events already

held, the building is being con¬

sidered for recitals, concerts, dances

and seminars.

SUP Shapes New

Plans to Mark

Trails, Landmarks

President William Critchlow III

recently announced the creation of

the ‘Pioneer Trails and Landmarks

Committee', including;

M. Elmer Cnristensen,

Chairman; Marshal K, Rrinton,

Murray Chapter; Ralph ]*

Carlson, Pioneer Trails Relay

Chapter; W. Randall Dixon,

City Creek Chapter; and

William B* Smart, Advisor*

The responsibilities of the Com¬

mittee include:

1. To emphasize the impor¬

tance of remembering and

recognizing Pioneer Trails and

landmarks; 2* To locate and

identify trails and sites signifi¬

cant in Pioneer history and

assemble preliminary informa¬

tion regarding them, and 3*

To encourange chapters to

select and appropriately

memorialize through monu¬

ments, plaques or otherwise,

trails traversed by pioneers or

landmarks significant in the

development of the West*

Members of the Committee ac¬

cepted their appointments with en¬

thusiasm and will endeavor to

develop a program of education and

activity worthy of the important

goals and purposes of the Sons of

the Utah Pioneers* The Committee

appeals to all chapters and members

for their cooperation and support in

carrying out, successfully, the objec¬

tives of the Committee*

MARKING TRAILS

A practical and effective way of

developing an appreciation of the

heritagt we enjoy today is to sponsor

the marking of historical sites.

Such projects naturally involve a

study of the history of the particular

landmarks being preserved and the

contribution of the pioneers of

yesterday to our present civilization*

Senator Hatch Addresses

SUP Life Member Banquet

Celebrating a doubling of their

numbers in the past three years, the

National Society's elite group of

Life Members and their wives filled

Heritage Hall to overflowing Jan*

9th for their annual banquet.

Nearly 320 filled tables in the

hall* on the stages, and even in the

adjoining prop storage room to hear

an address by Utah Senator Orrin

Hatch, who called for a new spirit of

pioneering to meet the challenges of

our time through lives of courage

and devotion to principle.

Life Memberships were in¬

itiated in 1948 under national

president Judge Jesse P. Rich.

A one-time fee pays up a

membership for life, without

renewal of national dues. In¬

auguration of the trust account

came during the terms of

Nicholas G. Morgan and

Horace A. Sorensen.

In the first thirty years of

the national society’s life

member program, a total of

287 members were listed. The

last three years — since

December, 1978 — have ad¬

ded 307 more, for a total of

594. And the trust fund

balance has grown from

$23,332 three years ago to

approximately $50,000 to¬

day.

The recent growth resulted

from the efforts of chapter

presidents and local Life

Membership committees, the

leadership of national SUP

chairmen, especially the late

Dr. Theris P. Astle, listing

Life Member names as record¬

ed by the national executive

staff in issues of the Pioneer,

and recognition that the fee

will be self-perpetuating

through investment of the Life

Membership Trust Account,

Life Member Ronald Vern Jackson

presented to Senator Hatch

bound pedigree charts and family

group sheets of President Ronald

Reagan’s ancestry for presentation

to the President by Senator Hatch

for his next birthday.

PRAJSES REAGAN

The Senator praised President

Reagan as a modern-day pioneer

who has great affection for Utah and

great admiration for the Mormon

ioneers. He also reminisced about

is own pioneer ancestry, including

a grandfather who was the founder

of Vernal, once known as Hatchtown,

and another who was a Mor¬

mon Battalion member, and its

...doubled in 3 years.

SUP Mourns Dr. Astle

The death of Dr, Theris P.

Astle on Dec. 1 leaves the Na¬

tional Society bereft of the

leader who directed the SUP

Life Membership Program

through its period of greatest

growth. We extend our sym¬

pathies to Mrs, Astle and their

children. His obituary is

printed on page 23.

longest-living survivor,

A plaque was presented by na¬

tional president William J. Cntchlow

HI in recognition of the selfless

and dedicated leadership and

boundless generosity of past na¬

tional president K. Grant Hale and

members of the Hale family, most of

whom are themselves Life

Members.

SUP Hosts 1(

It was a lively agenda that

brought officers and their partners

from many parts of the National

Society to the SUP National Head¬

quarters on Saturday, January 9.

Nearly every part of the building

was in use during the full schedule

of activities.

The day began with a 12:30

p.m. luncheon for the Past Presi¬

dent's Council and their wives,

followed by a business meeting

under direction of K, Grant Hale.

The Heritage Hall stage provided a

cozy setting for the event.

Next, at 1:30 p.m., the National

Board met in Pioneer Hall, on the

lower level of the building. It was

the first official use of the area.

DUES INCREASED FOR 19S2

National dues for 1982 were in¬

creased from $10 to $15 per year,

and the Life Membership fee was in¬

creased from $ 125 to $ 150 per

year. The board voted, however to

allow those who pay before March

30 to receive full credit for this

year's dues, or Life Membership, at

the previous rate.

A two-hour training session for

national and chapter officers follow¬

ed in Pioneer Hall, under direction

of President Elect Glen Lloyd, with

the assistance of past presidents K.

Grant Hale and Dr. Orson Wright.

How to Get Home Again from Mesa...

by Spencer Madsen

(Editor's Note: In the last

issue, the 1982 Encampment

chairman told Utah members

some routes to Mesa. 77iis is

the return trip installment.)

As the October, 1982 encamp¬

ment in Mesa comes to a close, you

may want to see additional areas of

interest enroute to your homes. The

following are some suggested routes

to travel:

NORTHEASTERN ARIZONA:

Leave Mesa going east on Main

Street (Highway 60), You will pass

through Apache junction, a fastgrowing

community, especially in

the winter time. You will pass the

Superstition Mountains and the

towns of Superior, Miami and

Globe, noted for their copper mining

activities.

On the eastern outskirts of Globe

you should turn left on route 60 or

77 towards the towns of Show Low

and Holbrook, You will drive down

into the Salt River Canyon and up

the other side- In Show Low you

could continue on to the St. Johns

and Springerville area, but suggest

you go left on route 77 through

Snowflake (an early Northern

Arizona pioneer community and

largely LDS today) to Holbrook.

In Holbrook, take route ISO east

to the Petrified Forest area where

you may want to make several

stops. As you travel north through

the Petrified Forest, you will reach

1-40 where you will make a right

turn towards the Chambers Junetion.

Here you should turn left or

north on route 63 through Indian

Country to the junction at Ganado.

Here you will turn lett on route

264 for a short distance to the com¬

munity of Chinle. Here you may

want to take some time to visit Can¬

yon De Chelly Monument.

You can drive to excellent view

look-out points on the high plateaus

or hike into the bottom of the can¬

yon to see the remains of an earlier

civilization. Conducted tours can be

arranged at Monument Headquarters

located east of Chinle. There are

sleeping accommodations available

in this Navajo town.

As you leave Chinle, travel north

towards Many Farms (site of an In¬

dian Junior College), and other

trading posts until you reach route

the Hovenweep National Monu¬

ment. On one of the monument

markers one reads of the tradition

that this is an area where the Gadiantian

Robbers of the Book of

Mormon period lived. There are

several fortresses to be seen near the

Monument Headquarters.

A four wheel vehicle is suggested

beyond this point if you desire to see

the other fortresses built during the

Book of Mormon period. As you

leave Hovenweep National Monu¬

ment, you may desire to drive east

to Cortez, Colorado. The roads are

good and a bus should make this trip

rather easily. If you desire, you may

want to drive west to the Hatch

Pioneer Life Is

Sketched From Book

by William H. Fotheringham

Members and invited guests of

the Beehive Chapter enjoyed a most

entertaining evening Wednesday,

October 21, as they were presented

a dramatic sketch of the book,

* ‘Mormon Trail*1 written by Aurelia

Pyper Richards.

Brother and Sister Richards

dramatized through narrative,

music, and costumes, the historical

events surrounding the early days of

the Church and the Saints* exodus

west. The book is based on facts

from diaries, journals, and other

authentic resources.

Sister Richards devoted fifty years

in research and study in completing

the book. Proceeds from sale of the

book are donated to the Church mis¬

sionary fund. At present writing,

nearly $3,000.00 has been

donated.

Sister Richards is a prolific writer,

having written other materials and is

presently preparing church writings

for children and women of the Book

of Mormon.

The program followed a delicious

ootluck buffet.

Busy Year Ended

for EMC Chapter;

Leaders Chosen

by Marvin Spencer Stevens

198! has been a busy but

outstanding year for the East Mill

Creek Chapter,

Our very capable President G.

Lynn Garff displayed those highly

desired and effective qualities of

leadership to guide the chapter

through a banner yearv

Each dinner meeting has been one

of pleasure and satisfaction. We

have had wonderful speakers ad¬

dress us on a wide range of subjects

from: Health care, publishing,

chapter area history, what it means

to be doctor to a prophet, church

history - new museum, and Brigham

Young, the man.

The October dinner meeting was

the first time for any chapter to use

the new National Headquarters

building since its dedication* The

guest speaker for that event was the

exciting, warm, radiant, vibrant

special person Elder Legrand

Richards of the Council of Twelve

Apostles, In bis address to the group

he stated that outside of being a

member of the Church of Jesus

Christ of Latter-day Saints, that

membership in the Sons of Utah

Pioneers is the next important

organization to belong to.

However, on July 20, 1981, the

EMC Chapter had a Picnic Basket

Dinner in Heritage Hall while it was

under construction, just to whet the

appetite of the members over the

new building and to view its pro¬

gress .

With two treks this year and also

the National Encampment at

Ogden, the EMC Chapter still re¬

mains strong and steadfast to the

cause of honoring our heritage. It is

a pleasure to belong to such a

unified, congenial group of people

that enjoy blissful harmony. Thanks

to all to wonderful members of the

East Mill Creek Chapter for this and

their support.

An election was held for the

chapter on November 16. Officers

and Board members were elected.

They are as follows:

Wallace W. Bates, President:

Daniel F* Allred, President Elect:

Wallace (Bud) Brown, 1st Vice

President: W, Glenn Swaner, 2nd

Vice President; Marvin S, Stevens,

dy, Hold over Director; J. Marden

V. Bulkley, Two year Director; G.

Lynn Garff, Past President; Joel H.

Treasurer.

We wish to thank Kay Garff and

Lois Allred for being responsible in

the adornment of the Headquarters

building for the holiday season, as

part of the EMC Chapter,

Lees Ferry on the Colorado River

was the gateway to Northern

Arizona for early day pioneers* The

Kanab Red Rock Chapter of SUP

members and wives made a trek to

this historic site in September.

Two mini buses filled with

modern day pioneers journeyed

across the Arizona Strip, climbed the

gentle slopes of Buckskin (Kaibab)

mountain, passed Jacob Lake (nam¬

ed for Jacob Hamblin), descended to

the colorful Houserock Valley and

arrived at Lees Ferry in time for

lunch* Dutch oven cookout with all

the trimmings was a special treat in

the cool shade of spreading cotton¬

wood trees. Ted Cox, Ermon

Robinson, and Whit Robinson were

among those who shared their

knowledge of the history of the area

and the events and people who lived

there, A hike to the old cemetery

and a boat ride up the river provided

a greater appreciation of the peaceful

beauty*

The ride home was by way of

‘ ‘ Sons of Utah Pioneers ’ ’

By Jerry Crouch

President, Ogden Pioneer Chapter

Paraphrased from Gary Snyder

We came here by a path,

A line of people that worked their way Westward

This is how we came to be where we are*

We define ourselves in relation to this place, Utah

There are many people who are not settled

They are far removed from their ancestral territories.

Our ancestors were once in that condition

They left their ancestral place

That leaving was usually harsh and painful*

The pioneers had to develop specific ways to be here

Knowledge of plants and traps and hunting and tools

A spirit of what it was to be here evolved.

It was sometimes said, "this piece of land is sacred"

Or "all land is sacred".

There was an awareness of the mystery of life and death

Of taking life to live, or giving life back

A sense of sacramental quality in that relationship.

Knowing who and where we are, are intimately linked

We should be able to say, "I really love and know

This place." This Utah.

Love means living as though our grandchildren

Will also be alive, in this land,

Carrying on, with deepening delight.

We, in the Sons of Utah Pioneers, should strive

Through the coming year

To maintain this sense of the magic system.

The capacity to see and hear and feel;

An appreciation of the struggles

And successes of the Pioneers.

house of The Church of Jesus Christ

Arizona.

Elder H. Burke Peterson, first

counselor in the Presiding Bishopric

of the church, who attended services

in the building as a boy, spoke to an

audience of more than 600 on Oct.

25, and dedicated the marker. His

father, Harold A. Peterson, was

Sunday School superintendent there.

HONOR BISHOPS

Most of those present were

members of that Phoenix First Ward

or their families. Honored at the

dedication were families of the four

bishops who presided at the building

between May 4, 1919 and October

16, 1949. Those bishops were, in

order, J. Robert Price, George F.

Price, John H. Udall and Arch B.

Campbell.

The site is now part of Heritage

Square, an historical restoration pro¬

ject of the City of Phoenix Parks and

Recreation Department, at Seventh

of Mormon Battalion

In 1897 these were the survivors of the 503 men and

46 women and children who comprised the Mormon Bat¬

talion during its historic march from Fort Leavenworth to

San Diego in 1846-47. This picture was taken during the

1897 Jubilee Celebration of the arrival of the Mormon

pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley,

Each of the veterans was presented a gold medal in

commemoration of the 50th anniversary of that excep¬

tional military trek which its commanding officer, Lt*

CoL Philip St. George Cooke, characterized with the

statement, 4'History may be searched in vain for an equal

march of infantry.''

Not all of those appearing in this picture have been

identified. Consequently, we should appreciate the

assistance of our readers in identifying each survivor ap¬

pearing in the above picture. If you know the names of

any of these swrvivorsi please advise John J. Nielson, our

National Executive Secretary, by mail or telephone at our

National Headquarters, 3301 East 2920 South, Sa(t

Lake City, Utah 84109, or telephone (801) 484-444 L

tional Headquarters, and we hope may soon add an ac¬

companying plaque identifying the surviving battalion

members.

Trails, Landmarks

(Continued from page 10)

several chapters in the central Utah

area cooperate in the selection and

marking of sites or landmarks along

the original pioneer trail from

Henefer to the mouth of Emigration

Canyon, the * 'Granddaddy*' of all

pioneer trails*

Several sites previously marked

have been mutilated or completely

destroyed and need to be restored.

Other important sites have not yet

been marked. An example is tfie en¬

trance to Little Emigration Canyon,

where crude fortifications erected by

the Pioneers in 1857 to serve as the

third and last defense against a

possible advance of Johnston's Ar¬

my are still discernible.

At some other sites, a monument

still stands but the metal plaque has

been removed and stolen. The entire

Trail really needs a new 1 ‘face¬

lifting* ’ and awaits the efforts of

some appreciative Sons of the

original Pioneers*
