Hello Dear Reader,
Wes continued to work as a carpenter for Axel Christiansen but soon after his marriage to Mary the house the company was building was finished and the job they anticipated fell through. Wes was unemployed. It wasn’t long until the money he and Mary had saved was gone. He joined the Union and went to Salt Lake where he found work at the municipal airport building. He worked one day before he was fired.

He started looking again and looked for two or three weeks. Finally, the job the Christiansens expected, an addition to Provo City Power plant, started up. Not only did Wes have work but he got a raise. He was now making 50¢ an hour for a total of $20 a week. He said, “We were rich!”
