A proud Grand Junction opens its new YMCA, located at Fifth Street and Rood Avenue.

They allow any church to use the facilities for their athletic programs as well as open it to membership.

There are now nearly 2,000 telephones across the valley, but don’t try to call for liquor delivery; Mesa County voters banned liquor sales and service.

Residents are still allowed to grow a small amount of grapes and make wine for home consumption.

The local Salvation Army is established and John Otto is attracting attention with his fervent enthusiasm of the surrounding mesas and canyons.
