vard U.; Laurence is an Insurance Agent and

Bus. Record: Followed mining on the East
Belt of Mother Lode for seven years as an
underground workman, then a millhand for
two years with lumber company; started a
dairy in 1907, and operated it succe.ssfully
for many years. In 1922, became a Super-
visor representing the Third Dist. of Tuolumne
Co., in which two of the biggest lumber com-
panies in the State are located. The sudden
closing of these mills in 1930 threw almost
2000 men out of employment for over five
years, and the problem of caring for these
unfortunate people became the peculiar and
distressing problem of the Supervisor of the
Third Dist. Many people are kind enough to
say it was done quite efficiently, but stubborn
determination not to quit when the going was
hard probably had a lot to do with the re-
sults. Pessimists said grass would grow in
the streets of Tuolumne, so the Supervisor
paved them so grass couldn't get through, re-
placed wooden sidewalks with concrete and
built public bldgs. including a beautiful Me-
morial Hall, and nobody starved!
