Job in Colony: In October 1931 Comrades Webb and Carl Bradshaw finished digging a septic tank pit at the hospital which George Hullinger, Wesley Wright, Chas. Baughman, Fred Busick and Elliott Self would build up as soon as they finished with the septic tank at the hotel.

In 1932 he working as a brick mason, "busy as a beaver with the brick work in the big 150 horse power boiler, and as black as those who work in fire boxes usually get."

In April 1932 the bricklayers under Wes Wright were erecting the boiler wall at the east side of the power plant. George Hullinger and Henry Witt were laying the brick and Albert Wick and Mahler were keeping them supplied with mortar and brick.

The meeting also adopted a rule permitting all resident members who had been at the colony more than sixty days to vote in the election, provided too few proxies were received to hold a regular stock holders' meeting.

Those selected were: Robert K. Williams, E.C. Carl, Lester Caves, Crockett Campbell, Harold Emery, Chester Peecher, E.O. Joynes, Charles Lawrence, and Chester Page. Runners up were Mrs. Mabel Busick, Horace Cronk and John Szpila.
