Title Acknowledgements
Description ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS In the fourth year of publication of winning entries of the Manti Region Historical Writing Contest, we are grateful for the essays, poetry, anecdotes and stories from the Sanpete area that have been submitted. Nearly one thousand copies of the Saga of the Sanpitch have been sold each year to persons living in many parts of the United States and in foreign countries. During the life of teh contest, more than 40 contributors have sent in entries, and publication of all of them is only limited by the cost.

We are sincerely grateful to Mr. Magleby, who is Director of Personnel Benefits for the Seminary and Institute Program; Mr. Trevor Christensen, Foreign Student Officer; and Professor Ralph Britsch, Division of Humanities and Comparative Literature, all of BYU; and all former residents of Sanpete, for their help in judging this year's contest. We are indebted to Professor and Mrs. Richard Nibley for the cover picture of the Ephraim Co~Op, which is this year, one hundred years old, having been completed in 1872. Also to Mrs. Alice Willardson and her son Dr. Lyman S. Willardson of Brawley, California, who loaned us his photographs of homes in this valley decorated with Gingerbread trim, which became popular in the 1880's and 1890's. However, some of the first homes built outside Fort Ephraim were so decorated. Also, we have appreciated the interest and encouragement of Regional Representative Phil D. Jensen of the Manti-Juab Region of the LDS Church, and Stake Presidents and their
