Title Lucile
Description stockings in winter and in summer white cotton. When her father returned from his mission, the porches were finished, and an open stairway was built in the front hall. Now she could have her own room upstairs. In one corner of her bedroom hung a beautiful doll with a china head, blonde curls, eyes that opened and shut, china hands and high black shoes. She wore a heavenly blue silk dress. Often, the author wished she could take her down and play with her. But. no, she Just hung there. Lately on a visit to Lucile, I found the reason: The doll had no body, just straps to connect china head, hands, and the shoes. Lucile attended school in the three-story, red brick Schoolhouse that was hailed as the "most modem Schoolhouse south of Salt Lake City." It was built in 1894. Its two entrances led into large, wide halls with wooden, oiled steps which led upward to the next floor. Each classroom had its own large hall in which students could hang their coats. All floors were oiled. In 1901 the first electric lights were installed near the Manti Tabernacle and perhaps at that time electricity was introduced in each room of the school. This building had no telephone, no restrooms inside the building and no fire escape. Lucile was an adept student as she progressed from grade to grade. Perhaps she attended seventh and eighth grades in the newly built 1905 white brick, three-story Manti high school building on the northwest corner of the Tabernacle block. In 1902 her father, L.R. Anderson, was elected mayor of Manti. Our city had suffered for years with floods coming from Manti Canyon and wreaking havoc over the city (Manti) streets. While he was mayor, he was instrumental in getting a dam built at the mouth of Manti Canyon to hold back a settling pond and much debris such as rocks, trees, and brush that had come down with the water. The dam cost $3,000. Also at this time, Mr. Anderson pointed out the need to locate springs and water outlets in the canyon and file on them, only to have the City Council vote "No." They said Manti controlled that water, and all the water rights belonged to the people of Manti City. No need to worry or file on Manti Canyon water. Later, her father was elected to the Utah State Legislature and rather than drive on weekends back to Manti, he moved his family to Salt Lake City to live near the Eagle Gate. Lucile was attending Manti High School then. During their stay in Salt Lake City she attended the LDS High School. 82
