Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION that are solicited first Every time there's a solicitation of funds for any of the 'national' causes, the merchants are hit first and probably hardest. Every time you spend your money outside of Nephi, you're just pushing Nephi's economy down a little more. Nephi merchants hire Nephi people, pay others for services, etc. Nephi merchants are supporting the schools, the city and county through taxation. "Let's BUY IN NEPHI (his caps) when you want to buy.

They also made a home for two foster daughters through the Indian Placement Program, Lula Largo, who earned a BYU degree, and Ethelyn Charlie. Both now reside in Provo. Roy and Zoe were grandparents to 18. Money and jobs remained in short supply through most of the '30s and only the 1939 outbreak of World War II in Europe began to revive America's economy through military manufacturing.
