Twenty years from now Ogden should have in its eastern boun
daries tho largest, most attractive park adjacent to any city in the
At present this park is known as a wild game sanctuary. On a
day this week, yellow notices were tacked on posts defining part of
the lines of the park. The sanctuary includes that part of the moun
tains back of Ogden, extending from North Ogden canyon south
to Weber canyon, including Ogden canyon. "Within the confines of
the park, guns are not to be carried and those found shooting will bo
At present the state fish and game commissioner is near Boise,
Idaho, obtaining six pairs of mountain goats to turn loose in the
cliffs. Other animals are to be imported and allowed to go unmo
lested in the park.
Ten days ago seven head of deer came down to Dr. Petty 's camp
above the limekiln in Ogden canyon. Ten more years of protecting
this wild game and deer will be frequently seen at all seasons oc
the. year. That will add charm to the beauties of the canyon
Whnt a delightful place the sanctuary will be when this animal
life, in all its naturalness, will be discoverable at every point of
view, and, as to sporl, what avi'H be more pleasing than to snap the
camera on mountain goat, deer, raccoon or squirrel and watch the
birds in their nesting?
There is only one enemy in this vast sanctuary which must bo
driven out. He is the mountain lion, that powerful feline which
preys on the young of other wild animals, lie is the cougar and,
when hunted, seeks safety in the top branches of a tree. By em
ploying dogs in the chase, the fish and game wardens expect to elear
the park of this one source of danger.
I SENATOR JOHNSON IS EIG-HT,
Regardless of whether the League of Nations is right or wrong,
Senator Johnson, who is in Chicago attending the great gathering
of Republicans, is pursuing the proper course in. demanding that,
his party convention unmistakably declare itself on the issue, lie
says he is in Chicago to see to it "that the Republican party pursues
no pussyfooting tactics in passing judgment.
At this time, there should be an open declaration by both par
ties as to their attitude on our foreign policy. Either America
should do a stalwart's part in helping solve the problems which con
I stantly threaten the peace of the world, or this nation should keep
to itself. If there is no appeal from without whirl) calls for an
' American response, if there is no need for American counsel in the
affairs of Europe, then Senator Johnson's advice to remain aloof is
I wisdom. But if America has ceased to be isolated, and if Amcricu
has a bigger mission than is bounded by purely self-interest, that
1 fact should be written in letters big and large.
There should be no compromising on ibis question. The Re
publican and Democratic parties should speak out so that there can
be no uncertainty as to where they stand.

More than one plague is devouring the-ALc-xiunusj, -hlalX of the

I, -' POETRY AND LOVE.
J "We arc told that a gifted poet has fallen in love with Princess
1 1 Mary, only daughter of King George and Queen Mary, and that. he
i persists in writing love letters to the young lady, which are in' bean
ie tiful language, expressing vthc loftiest sentiments.
Princess Mary should deem herself quite fortunate in having a
real love affair, for the great majority of maidens of royal birth live
in an atmosphere too stuffy to permit of the developmentof any
thing genuinely true and romantic.
In the spring of the year the Standard-Examiner is made aware
of the fact that Ogden has poet's and poetry. A few of them we
might commend to Princess Mary, but there are many whose effu
i sions indicate much sentiment devoid of everything that goes to
make up poetry. AVe would be pleased to have Princess Mary re-

song and poetry to the love-lorn and those who are pining to be

Living in Budapest must bring to the timid and even the strong
of heart a sense of insecurity verging on horror. The city is .pa
trolled by mounted police but in the crowds the Bolsheviki are oper

appears a needle is made to prick his skin. As a result of this cam

Rowdies go about with sharpened iron canes, attacking people
in the parks and cafes,

How Much Do You Weigh? '
Superfluous Fat Must Be Starved "Avay and Worked Away. It Cannot '
' Be Sweated Away J
BY UNCLE SAM, M. D.
.(U. S. Public Health Service.)
The term "obesity" is applied to an
abnormal increase In tho body weight.
It may result from overfeeding or lack
of exercise, or a combination of theae
two factors, or it may bo due to some
constitutional derangement, such as a
disorder of tho thyroid gland.
Before any plan of treatment is for
mulated, the habits of life of tho pa
tient must be carefully and oxactly de
termined In order that the cause of the
obesity may be discovered. In general,
it may bo stated that a reduction cure
need not necessarily bo regarded as
weakening, provided it is properly car
ried out. If there is a real need for
the reduction treatment, and if it is
properly carried out, the patient will
not become weaker, but on the con
trary, stronger from the treatment.
There are, however, a number of
conditions that constlute a warning
against undertaking a reduction cure.
One of these is advanced age; another
is diabetes. Diabetics often fare better
if tho fat tissues remain somewhat
above the normal average. This Is also,
true of the gouty. In tu'oercuiosis,
too, a degree of fatness, slightly ex
ceeding tho norma:, appears to be ben
eficial rather than otherwise. In deal
ing with obesity occurring in patients
with certain forms of Brlght's disease, j
a reduction treatment, while highly,
desirable, is usually attended with!
such difficulties that it should bo car
ried out only by a skilful physician in
a suitable sanatorium.
Van Noorden distinguishes three
degrees of reduction diet. According
to this authority, in either tho first or j
second it is not difficult to arrange I
the diet. All that is needed is to omit1
all visible fat (butter, oil. meat fat, etc.), I
to prepare vegetables and dishes made'

Chairman, Federal Council of
Churclics of Anu'riea
The world was never freer. Much
that bound men has been forever
swept away. I'eoplc who were once
afraid to speak their minds now do so
without restraint. The old order has
changed, the new day is on. and the
average man capers as he lisjieth,
without bit or bridle. The only man
who can put shaelc'es on you today Is
yourself. The only power that can en
slave you is within. j
Is this good for the world? Ts It
safe for society? is it secure andj
are human rights safe under a regime,
where every - man may do as he
pleases? It all depends on the kind of
man he Is.
Demoeruey demands the highest j
type of cltlzenahip. So people aro fit.
to rule themselves until the average
citizen is able to control himself. Au-i
tocracy is the only safe government'
for men who make a god of their sip-1
petites and write their lusts into their
i creeds. Where men riot In unre
strained llcenae. there can be no or
derly government . Property Is de
stroyed, law is despised, life is cheap,
land civilization perishes.
I Hence, as outward restraints dimin
ish, inward restraints must be estab
lished. Ab men am less and less con
trolled from without, they must more
and more control themselve from
within. A;, autocracy gives way to
democracy, conscience must he
strengthened, and the sense of justice
reinforced. As the bars are let down
at the Capitol, they must go up at the
home, the school, and the church.
How Is this to be accomplished ?
How else than by religion? The
hualneps of religion is to teach the in
dividual to control himself and to treat
his neighbor right. It establishes
within the soul the restraints which
make man safe.
If the world is to be pafe, men must
turn their faces to the Lord whoso an
cient requirement of the individual i
that he "do justly and love mercy and
walk humbly with his God."
