I COX MUST ANSWER
I AMERICAN VOTERS
H Must Make His Position Clear on
H Vital Issues of the Coming
H Fall Campaign.
1 Already Governor Cox when asked
H to declare himself on this or thnt issue
H is showing nn inclination to refer
M questioners to his record as Chief Ex-
H ccutlvc of Ohio. Now references arc
H all right in their way. But refer
M enecs go bnck into the past; they do
H '' not carry into tho future. Thoy tell

H ticular incident thnt is closed. They
H " lo not guarantee, they do not oven
h- affirm, what ho will do with situn
H. ' tions that arc ahead of him and wide
K Governor Cox running for president
' " of the United States must tell thd
B American people, and tell them dircct-
M ly and specifically, not what ho has
H done as governor of Ohio but what
V lie is going to do as president of tho
K United Ctntes.
When the question is put to him,
: cither Governor Cox is going to tell
Hi the pcoplo of tho United States in
R plnin English thnt ho never will pcr-
' mit their government to be intornn-
m tionnlizcd by the league of nntions or
' ho is going off tho slate of the Amer-
H lean voters.
H. Either Govemor Cox is going to tell
H the people of tho United States flatly
j what he will do when tho labor unions
H demand that he agree to help give
B them tho railroads and set thorn up in
V soviet control of them, or he is going
- oiT tho slate of tho American voters.
H. Either Governor Cox la going to
H, tell the pcoplo of the United States in
h so many words how ho and his party
B proposo to raise the taxes to pay tho
B government's debt nnd keep the trens-
B ury solvent, or he is going off the
B 'slntc of the American voters.
B Either Governor Cox is going to
B como straight out and tell the pcoplo
B' of the United States what he will do
H. when the wets, who nominated him,
H call upon him to mnke good to thorn,
B or ho is going off tko slntc of the
B, American voters.
B On any other basis thnn frank dc-
H clnration nnd square dealing with the

GOOD WORK OF CEDAR
POST AMERICAN LEGION
Effectual in Securing $280 for Don
A. Lightncr, a Member, Com
pensation ior Illness.
Through the efforts of the Cedar
Post of the Americnn Legion, Don A. '
Lightncr of Minersville, a member of
. this post, received $280 from the Wnr
Risk Bureau this week as compensa-'
tion for his recent long illness. Mr.
Lightncr hns been in Snlnt George un
der the carts of a physician for a long
while, but when he npplicd for the
compensntion which the law allows
him tho Wnr Risk Bureau turned his
npplicntion down. The Ccdnr Post
then took the matter up for him, onlyi
to be turned down nlso. The complete
file of letters to and from the Bureau
on this subject mnke very interesting
rending, but ore too long to repro
duce. Tho Post was not satisfied with
the decision of the burenu, being cor-
1 tnln that Lightncr hd a valid claim.
' So the matter was taken up ngnin,
this timo through the congressional
delegation. This time the claim re
ceived the consideration it merited
nnd was allowed. The payment of this
just clnim will onablo Lightncr to
square up the obligations incurred
through his long illness nnd take the
vocational training course to which ho
is entitled through his service in tho
nrmy. Mr. Lightncr, though ho knew
his claim was just, gave up all hope
of getting his due, nnd offered fifty
per cent to anyone who would collect
It for him. The Post got it without
cost to him.
TO OWNERS OF CEMETERY LOTS,
Owners of burinl lots in tho Cedar!
City Cemetery are hereby respectfully
notified that the samo are now entire-J
ly overgrown with weeds, nnd should
bo clenned during the coming week in
order to keep the weeds from seeding

mittee engnged five men and a team
to level the ground nnd prepare it
for plnnting grass this season. Upon
Investigation, however, it was found
thnt it would require nt least 100
loads of dirt and that n number of
large rocks would have to be blast-j
cd out, in order to mnko this spot
level nnd suitable for a play ground.
So wo decided to wait until later
when tho busy season is over nnd hnve
a Park and Play ground day and give
everybody a chance to help in this
