Title Preface
Description PREFACE As we present Volume XVI of the Saga of the Sanpitch we do so with gratitude that more precious events from our heritage of the past are being preserved; that stories, poems, essays, anecdotes and personal recollections have been submitted and published once more. As the time for the 1984 contest drew near, the possibility that there would be no Saga of the Sanpitch this year was very much in evidence. Pamela Jensen, chairman for the two previous years was moving to Nevada. Before leaving, she called a meeting of the Historical Writing Committee to organize the 1984 contest. Much interest was exhibited, but no one was ready to accept the responsibility of Chairman. The old saying, "Three heads are better than one," proved true as the three Chairmen met and decided that the Saga must continue. By dividing the responsibilities, we felt we could do it. There are still many stories that have not been told, many excellent writers who have not been published, an ever increasing circle of readers who look forward to adding another volume of these choice bits of the past to their collection. Hearly 1000 copies are sold each year to persont in the United States and foreign countries• We appreciate the entries submitted for this year's contest and realize the effort that is expended in the preparation of these manuscripts. The publication of every entry is linited only by cost. It is our sincere desire to see the Saga continue to accomplish its original purpose of "preserving sons of the fast disappearing stories of Sanpete Valley" and to continue to keep it a book of high quality at a minimum cost.
