SALT LAKE'S SCOUT CARAVAN
THAT the business men of Salt Lake City should
find it worth while to get behind and make a
big success of the Boy Scout caravan from that
H city to the parks, shows the hold the boy scout is
H getting on our everyday life. A boy is just a boy,
H but a boy scout is 'something else, again," as Abe
H would say.
H Cedar City and the other towns along the route
H of the caravan will do well to follow the example of
H Salt Lake City to welcome the scout and work for
H his good-will. If those lads go back to their homes
H with a warm spot in their young hearts for Cedar
H City, that will be an advertisement for the city such
H as no money can buy and no mere cash can measure.
H Since Elbert Hubbard railed at the folly of taking
H boys out of life to educate them, vocational training
H and the Boy Scout movement have been instituted.
H The Boy Scout organization stands as a direct ans-
H wer to Hubbard's jibe. It is an attempt to make the
H boy a useful part of our social life while he is yet a
H If any man is inclined to look on the scout ac-
H tivitics with that superior adult toleration that bor-
H ders on contempt- let him remember that within a
H short five years he himself will be doing business with
H some, maybe many, of these same boy scouts of to-
H day. He will want their esteem. He will benefit by
H their help. He will suffer from their deficiencies. He
H will be judged by them then in the light of the trcat-
H ment he gives them now. The example he sets them
H today will come back to him tomorrow either as a
H blessing or as an affliction. Only five short years.
H They will be gone before you realize it. Beware how
H you treat the boy scout. He is getting ready this
H very day to handle your railroads, govern your state,
H clean up your city, finance your business, or marry
H your daughter. Meet him and treat him as a man.
H Accept him now as you will want him to accept you
H in, say, five short years.
H INTEREST this week has centered in the national
H Republican convention, which is in session at Chicago.
H The organization of the convention and the drafting
H of a platform have consumed the principal part of
H the time, the plank concerning a league of nations
H being the main stumbling block. There are many
H Republicans in the national convention who were de-
H termined to declare emphaticallyiagainst a league of
H' cations; and there were more inclined to be con-
H servativc who were willing for a league of nations
H covenant, provided strong American reservations)
were attached. The Republican party is essentially
an American party. Its members do not believe in
loading this nation down with international problems
which do not vitally concern it. The Record is giv
ing the latest information by bulletins received direct
from Chicago through the Western Newspaper Union
organization as frequently as there is anything of im
portance to report, the bulletins being posted as re
ceived in our front windows. Wc have arranged for
like telegraphic service covering the Democratic con
vention which will be held in San Francisco June 28.
SOME few of our subscribers are a little careless
pr indifferent in their responses to our notices of the
expiration of their subscriptions, and after being sent
the second notice are chagrinncd or possibly annoyed
at having their papers stopped. Wc believe that it
has been made clear that subscription accounts are
payable strictly in advance and that all papers are
stopped after ample notice has been given, if not re
newed. The amount involved is small, the price bqr
ing only $2.00 per year despite the fact that nearly
all commodities nave gone up 100 per cent; and you
can save the publishers a lot of work and worry and
yourselves needless annoyance by giving prompt
response to these subscription notices when sent.
CEDAR CITY is taking one more step in advance
of other small cities of comparative size in the matter
of the elegant new lighting system that is being in
stalled in the business district of town, and which will
be as modern and up to date as can be found any
where. Only iron posts will be used and all the wires
will be run through subterranean conduit or cable.
TTie fixtures, too, will be strictly modern, and will
give to the district a verv metropolitatn appearance.
Our tourist camp ground, too, will be quite distinct
ive and will mark Cedar City with the tourist traveler
as one of the forward-looking communities of the
Arrowhead Trail route.
THAT labor is none too plentiful in Cedar City is
proven by the fact that Indians have had to be requi
sitioned to dig the trenches and bury thescables for
the new lighting equipment. The dusky laborers re
ceive $4.00 per day. What white labor there was
available held out for $4.50, with the above result.
During the interim between signing of contract and
the date on which the materials could be shipped, the
prices soared more than 100 per cent on much of
the material required, and now the company is mere
ly "swapping dollars" with the city and it is imper
ative that they figure closely in order to escape a
heavy loss. And anyhow, the Indians are residents
of this locality and have to live just the same as their
ONE of Cedar City's most praiseworthy institu
tions and one which is doing a lot to build up the
city and furnish homes for its inhabitants is the Cedar
Home. Building Society. It is officered by responsi
ble local people, whose hearts are in the welfare of
the community, and the business principles employed
arc sound and advantageous to the subscriber to the
stock, to the applicants for loans and to the commun
ity nt large. The corporation is a comparatively new
concern, having been organized only about three
years, but already it has been instrumental in the
erection of some seven or eight homes and has ac
commodate applicants for a total of fifteen loans. Its
earnings for stockholders are better than is paid by
banks on savings and like an account at a bank it
cultivates the saving instinct. Every young man in
Cedar City who has regular employment would do
well to invest a part of his earnings in stock of the
Cedar Home Building Society. Parley Dalley is sec
retary. Better see him about it today. This is in
no sense an advertisement, but is prompted solely by
a desire to benefit the investor and the community at
large, as there is a perpetual need for more homes.
And the young man who is care free and irresponsible
today will be taking life seriously and thinking of a
home for himself and bride a little later. There is
no better way of anticipating this requirement and
providing, for it than by the investment of earnings
in this institution.
