Tho following editorial appeared In tho Now York Evening
Post an Independent, pro-admlnlstratlon newspaper of March
A USEFUL SENATOR
Wo know our heroes In public llfo. but wo don't always know
our benofactors. They are often too plodding to witch tho world
with nohlo headlines. Washington dispatches, for example havo
vory llttlo to say about one of tho most useful members of tho
Sonatc, Reed Smoot of Utah. Ho Is no orator, ho soldom makes
long speeches, but ho has an unusual grasp ot tho public busi
ness, to which ho dovotcs himself with an assiduity that most men
keep for their prlvato affairs.
Day after day Senator Smoot sits there to watch harmless
looking bills and to Insist upon taking out ot them insidious llttlo
appropriations artfully concealed In somo cornor. It Is an un
gratoful task to bo a watchdog of tho Treasury, especially In thoso
days when tho spending of billions makes It Bcem hardly worth
whllo to savo thousands, but Senator Smoot sticks to It with ad
mirable pcrsistonco. And ho has won thereby the marked re
spect of his fellow-Senators, even though ho often blocks their
pot measures. Another thing which Senator Smoot consistently
and rcsotutcly opposes Is tho Indiscrmlnato printing ot public
documents. Ho Inexorably demands that they bo first passed upon
by tho Commlttco on Printing. All this is humdrum work, but
somo ono ought to do It in tho public Interest. Wo may add that
tho public ought to be grateful to tho man who docs It.
Tho following lottor to tho Evening Post was printed In Its
columns April 7. 1920:
A Highly Useful Senator
To tho Editor of Tho Evening Post:
Sir: I wish to thank you and to confirm what appears In
your columns March 26 regarding Senator Smoot of Utah. I had
been prejudiced against him until I went to Washington last May
and watched him day arter day In tho Senate Sonator Thomas
ono day gavo him credit for bolng moro punctual or moro con
stant In attondanco than any othor senator. Ho Is all that ho Is
said to bo in your editorial. Utah Is Just now apparently a Demo
cratic stato, having gono that way oven In 1918, but his defeat
would bo a .real loss to tho country. I call myself a Democrat

THE CALL TO ARMS
Come you Ladies of the G. 0. P.
Just fall right in line.
We've got tho Demies on the hip
Get some ginger in your spine.
We're needing every one of you
To help us win this fight;
And a glorious victory will be ours
If we strive with all our might.
We must cut down Wilson's plum tree,
Put a crimp in Palmer, too;
And tnke the wind out of the sails
Of little McAdoo.
And then there's Billy Bryan
The frost can never kill
When we're looking for a president
You can always count on Bill.
But Billy, we don't want you,
We're going to cook your goose;
We've often told you this before,
But it really is no use.
i We're tired of graft and wasting
And silly meddling, too,
With tho affairs of other nations
Whnt's that to mo and you?
Let Franco and England be allowed
To settlo their own quarrels;
We have our hands full here at homo
Unrnvelling all the snarls
That nro being handed down to ua
By Wilson and his crew
For the Democrats, ns usual, have
Bit off more than they can chew.
This tampering with the railroads
Hns given nil a pnin;
And we'll surely do some thinking
E're we try it on again.
It cost two billion dollars
To produce airplanes a few,
But before the factories started good
They learned the war was through.
The war cost many billions
Graft some billions more
And adding all together make3
The people mighty sore.
Tho frightful cost nf living,
Debt mounting to the sky,
Cnuses all to do some thinking, and
Election's drawing nigh.
With n million on the pay-roll
A flagrant show of graft
The Ship of Stato is .foundering
Almost a hopeless craft.
It's high time for men of vision
And women good nnd true,
To turn the saucy donkey out
And direct the course anew.
So once more, ladies, rally
Women of the G. 0. P.,
It's n time for each to do her bit;
Your duty do not flee.
Cedar City, April 20, 1920.
Any good democrat who has a mind Mr. Bryan may yet conclude to vie
.. , . , ... wi with tho President as to which shull
that will go along with Mr. Wilson'shavo tho honor of wrcckinB tho Dom.

Washington, Apr. 2(5, 1920 Where

more than a hundred government
publications stopped," remarked
J. II. Caster of Snlt Lake City at the
