They are; Ernest Stock of Oakland Calif.; Wallace F. and Harold J. Stock and Mrs Maud E. Nield of Afton; and Lorenzo Stock of Salt Lake City. During the time Mr Stock was a resident of Afton he has taken great interest in the town's growth and development, always showing considerable activity in municipal elections and everything that would help to advance the town, in which he was a heavy property holder.
