DANCE .AND SONG OF THE DEAF AND BLIND.
Tomorrow evening at G o'clock Ih children of the State School
fl for the Deaf and Blind will present their annual May festival on the
Hl lawn of the state institution.
1 This festival has become a fixed event of yearly occurrence ,at-
1 trading people from over the intermountam region. It is one of
1 the most pleasing and interesting of school exhibitions as it is made
up'oE manv elements of surprise for those who consider the deal
and bfiml as being so circumscribed in opportunities as to be ca
liable of onlv mediocre performance. . , . , i
The most delightful feature of the festivals is the evident cn
1 iovmcnt the exhibition affords the boys and girls who have been de-
iued the full use of the blessings of seeing or .hearing, Phc youiig
H stcrs enter into the spirit of the occasion with zest and they sing and
Hf dance and act with .all the spirit of those who are denied neither
the power of sight nor of hearing.
There is real satisfaction in watching the deaf and blind per
form as it teaches the lesson of contentment and proves that nature
often' offers to the afflicted compensating benefits. It is an miprcs
she lesson which no one. should miss who desires a better under
standing of the philosophy of Life or who simply seeks to be entcr
tained by soulful music and rhythmic danees.
I NEWSPAPER SCIENCE
"Newspaper science" is nerally scorned by scientists, for they
are accustomed to read technical books and journals, where things
arc told with great care and precision. But most ordinary people
-re not readers of technical books; and if it were not for the news
papers and the movies, they would get nothing in the way ot science
But when a reader takes more than a passing interest in what
a paper says, he should think of it as a mere beginning, or try to
read a little between the lines. Sometimes the stories are entirely
false A paper is not a book and no editor has time to. verify every
storv that comes .in to it. Sometimes the writers miss the point,
for "it is difficult indeed to put in a few simple words what the
scientist himself needed a chapter or a book to explain. Sometimes
they hit the mark with amazing skill. Often they dwell on the more
spectacular side of things, because that is what the reader seems to
want But they rarely give more than a snap-shot picture o'x the tacts.
And so the reader, who is really interested, should go beyond
the newspapers, get in touch with the scientists themselves, or some
one who tells of their work more slowly and at greater length. Every
high school teacher can give the names of men who really count
in his own particular specialty, and he . knows what journals can be
depended on for articles and discussions and reviews of the, best
books, and, of course, it is the business of the public libraries, to
give just such information.
If one already has a book, it is worth while to notice when it was
written (for scientific publications soon get out of date) and who the
author is. A man in a responsible position can't afford to make reck
less statements about his speciality. '
IjtfIG CUT IN PRICES.' :Xfr?
There is a wave of price cutting throughout the country and yes
terday the merchants in nearly every large city began a marking
down of goods.
This may be the beginning of that period of sanity for which
we have been praying. While sugar was being jumped $10 a bag in
a day, and clothing was going beyond the purchasing power of the
wage earner, and High Cost of Living was running amuck, the fear
was being expressed that the day was not far off when this country
would be the scene of a calamity which would rock the foundations
of society. With the turning downward of prices, some degree of
confidence in the future will bje established and once more there will
be hope of a stability which will tranquilize the nation.
There was a race on between wages and prices. Everytime a
half dollar was added to the pay 'of the workers, goods were marked
up 50 per cent, and this went on until the necessaries were placed
almost beyond the purchasing power of a man of average family in
which only one wage .earner brought revenue to the home.
"Where the fault was even our most expert economists could not
say, except to declare the profiteer was abroad in the land, some
where between the first cost and the ultimate price to the consumer.
Here in the west the opinion prevailed that the manufacturers in
the east were the quality offenders against the welfare of the
In this scaling down o-prices, retailers no doubt will suffer tem
porary financial reverses but it is a relieving of the safety valve be
fore an explosion occurs which might scatter wreckage over the

POPULATION OF OGDEN AND SALT LAKE.
H; With & population of 118,110, Salt 'Lake City shows a growth of
H; 25,332 since 1910. This is an increase of 27.3 per cent, or a healthy
Ogden's percentage of increase was slightly higher than that of
Salt Lake, and would have, been much greater had the boundaries
V of Ogden been extended at any time in the past thirty years, during
which period Salt Lake repeatedly has reached out and taken in
R now population. .
H All- that part of Ogden south of Thirty-sixth street, west of the
H stockayrds in Wilson Lane and north and northwest of Five Points
H is beyond the corporate limits and is not included in the census fig
J ures. Otherwise Ogden would .show approximately 40,000.
H But Ogden is beginning to get industries which will give a more,
H rapid growth in the next ten years, unless, in a clash of forces which
is now operating, the bright outlook is turned to dismal disappoint-
H Ogden is at the inception of an industrial development which
H promises to close the numerical gap which today separates Ogden
H and Salt Lake, and it would be a source of extreme disappointment
if, at the starting of a rapid upward movement, the advancement
Hj should be checked and even wiped out by involving tho whole com-
H munity in an endless uproar.
H Salt Lake can better afford to have these upsets, because that
H city has had its greatest possible growth in an industrial way. Ogden
H is just stepping out to attain the position which its natural advan-
H tages warrant, and it would be regrettable if Ogden itself, were to
H close the door to progress.
H Ogden to.day has nearly double the number of inhabitants Salt
H Lake had in 1880 and almost as many as the capital possessed in
1890. Even as late as 1900, Salt Lake had only 53,531, but in the
H twenty years; since then the city has more than doubled.

what can I do for this condition?
A. If you have a .s?jtic goiter,

a relic of the superstition prevailing
In the Dark Ages. It may hi that some

BOOST IN RATE OF
INTEREST IS COSTING
BY ROBERT L. OWEN.
U. S. Senator from Oklahoma, author
of tho Federal Reserve Banking act,
President of tho National Popular
In my first article on Interest rates
I called attention to the injurious ef
fects of the high rates of interest,
charged by the New York stock ex
change, on the entire business of the
country, from the fact that the ex
change controlled so enormous a vol
ume of credits.
This Increase was followed by the
recent action of tho federal reserve
board raising tho rate of interest to
member banks from 4 to G per cpnt.
The reserve bank increase opened
the way for the 25,000 private and na
tional banks in tho United States to
raise their rate 2 per cent on all loans
employed In the manufacturing, dis-j
tributlng and retail business of the
There are many billions of dollars of
such loans outstanding. The action of
tho board, therefore, is in effect an in
crease of 2 per cent on the total in
dustrial and commercial loans of the
nation. Which will in turn be ex
tracted from the pockets of tho people
in the prlco they pay for everything.
lions, probably $500,000,000, necessary
to repay such increased interest
charges will be taken, but on top of
that the multiplied manufacturers'
and middleman's profit on these same
Identical interest charges.
The .people do not realize the ex
tent to which interest, particularly un
earned Interest, adds to their burdens.
Thero is an honest interest charge
which measures actual service render
ed. There is another interest charge
which means extortion by those who
lend, because they take advantage of
the acute necessities of those who
must borrow. There are big "loan
sharks" as well as little "loan sharks."
From the days of Moses, who for
bado it, usury has been u menace to
human society. It has done so much
harm that every nation in tho world
has fixed a rate beyond which inter
est Bhall not be charged.
The power of compound interest to
absorb wealth by mere accumulation
ir absolutely incredible unless a math
ematical demonstration be made.
For example, a one-cent loan made
at the birth of Christ at 6 per cent
compound interest, doubling every 11
years, would doublo 174 times, com
pounding up to 1920. To pay that loan
would require an amount of gold equal
in volume to more than a billion times
a billion worlds the size of this earth.
It Is a sober mathematical fact; if you
don't believe it, take a pencil and fig
ure it out.
Napoleon, in considering facts of
ttyis-'klmty exclaimed: "I w.onder that
this monster, interest, has not de
But when excess interest charges
and unearned commissions on loans
1 run into the hundreds of millions an
nually, and these sums begin to com
pound annually, it is not difficult to
understand why tho unearned interest
and tho unearned profits of monopo
lies and of profiteering rapidly absorb
the surplus wealth of the country and
thus lead to one man having a thousand
million dollars, and lead to another
man, innocent of these artful proc
esses, finding it impossible to feed his
children, clothe his family, and shel
ter the mother of his children from
the winter's cold.
The experience of the world shows
that revolutions and the overthrow of
governments have had their chief
cause in this unjust and unequal accu
mulation of wealth, because, as a
necessary corollary this wealth puts
economic and political power in the
hands of a few until the masses, un
able to endure longer, resort to vio
lence as a short cut to relief.

The God who made the tear ducts

It Is a healthy sign that fuller and
saner provision Is being made for the
play side of life. It should issue in
not only making people happier, but
better. Amusement contributes to
normal and symmetrical living. It Is
an essential element hi the evolution
Amusement, however, is not the end
of existence. It is merely a feature.
It Is a means to the oud. People who
have to be everlastingly amused pos
sess a child typo of mind. People
who live to play miss tho best.
Amusement, like money, Is a good
thing when rightly U6ed, but a bad
thing when it usos you. It makes
a good servant, but a poor master.
That amusoment Is being overdone

Tho revival of serious thinking and

and predicted haa not arrived. It may

The peril Is not that amusement

Nothing Is allowed to come between

Is that undor the mania for play, the

Within a yenr they were doing $350,

they met other committees from other
bakeries privately operated, protest
ing that'they would be ruined if com

cents. The Patorson cooperatives felt
that it was necessary to obey the
law so thoy went back home and sold
their bread at 10 cents a loaf.
But there was a profit of 31-2
cents additional on every loaf. The
money piled up so rapidly thoy did
not know what to do with It; so In
order to distribute It to the coopera

Tired of It
I've grown so tired of striking that tH
work looks good to me; though I've
had little liking, of late, for industry.
The war got me unsettled, unfit for jH
honest toil, and, like a palfrey met
tied, I reared and pawed the soil. I
called on men and brothers to come
!and strike with me, and set their dads jH
nnd mothers from tyrants' shackles
free. And all tho boys responded,
and quit their useful tasks, grow whla
kers many-fronded, and yawped from
kegs and casks. Like me, they called
on workers to throw their handsaws y
down, and join the ranks of shirkers jH
who thronged the idle town. And so V'H
our graft kept spreading, and rnn us
all in debt, and very few were tread
ing tho paths where tollers sweat. I
sat, with other bumpkins, around tho
Dluo Front store, and no one grew
two pumpkins where but one grow
before. And no one plowed a furrow,
or made an anvil ring, or came out ,BB
from his burrow, to laugh and danco I fi)
and sing. But all were talking sor- LP
row, and pessimism black, and swear- fi

warks crack. And now I'm tired of M
striking, I need some iron men, and '
