i UNEMPLOYMENT IS
WORRYING THE COUNTRY
Reins; on one of the great highways
across the country, Ogden fools thr
first Impulses of prosperity or depres
sion in the nation. Lately men have
been appearing in Ogden in number
seeking employment and begging for
an- opportunity to work. The change
from more work than there were men
to do the tasks to a condition of
forced idleness hae come at) swiftly as
to leave countless thousands stranded,
and. as a result, the count ry is facing a
problem of no small magnitude Rail
roads are discharging workers by ihe
thousands Business concerns, laking
alarm, are curtailing down to bare ne
cessities, and the wave i- sweeping
great bodies of men into unemploy
ment. Dealing with this question. F J.
Haskin says idle men are in ividenc0
everywhere In the United States, ac
cording to government rebortl. In
New York City 100.000 are out of work
in a single industry This observation
The man out ol a Job is a sig
nificant figure He is the hardest
of all radicals tr answer. You may
say that the agitatoi who criti
cizes our institutions talks bosh.
I but the man who wants to work
and knows how to work and C8D
not find the chance, surely has ;i
real case against society. He is
the man of all men who will lis
ten when someone tries to tell
him that the nation is organized
on the wrong principle and ought
to be made over again There is
no Ube asking him to be content,
when his stomach is empty and
the door to his Job is closed.
To prevent unemployment is
worth more as ,i step toward sup
pressing radicalism than an)
amount of red-halting and anar
chist exporting. Yet unempl"
ment i.its us periodically and we
have neer yet made any intelli
gent effoT to take care of It.
The nearert thin: to r,h . tion in
that line was the creation of the
United States employrncn' aSTY
ice during the war ai pari or the
labor department It was nit pro
vided lo take care of unemploy
ment but rather to help In o or
coming a labor Bhorl N"eor
theless. it was an organization
for studying labor conditions, and
ltn machinery could be used
against unemployment as well i
The chamber of commerce of tin
I United States is understood to
; have indorsed this proceeding
i Manufacturers are beginning to
realize that the man out of a Job
is their worst enemy, if they wish
I t to maintain the industrial status
I quo in this country, and he is an
enemy who cannot be put in Jail
or shipped to Russia. The only
I way to get rid of him is to find
' him a Job. Hence the manufactur
ers favor job hunting machinery
li The most direct way of overcom
ing unemployment, of course,
would be to provide work for all
who were willing to work, by
state or federal action. Thus it
I has been suggested that the unem-
I ployed be put to work at the re-
clamation, under go eminent su
pervision, of swamp and desert
I lands a task which muBt be done
before long. But this again would
be paternalism It would conflict
I with our political ideals of indi
I None the less, the establishment
of an employment service by
state and federal co-operation
would very likely lead to some
I thing like this. A state govern
I ment could very' well leave some
of its more ambitious road-build-j
lng project and other public lm-
i provements, until its employment
serlve reported many men in need
of work. In other words, state ex
penditures for public works could
be so timed as to relieve unem

I But the demands from foreign

manufacturing concerns could not

MEN OUT OF WORK
AND DANGERS AHEAD
There is danger or Bolshevism in
'this country, according to Charle
Stewarl Davison, chairman of the
board of trustees of the American Do
Ifense Society In a letter lo local of
flolals, Mr Davfson makes this an
nouncement. v vigorous nation wide campaign
'to force the United Stales government
to recognize soviet Russia is beim:
made falsely in the name of oreanized
labor by such men as Harry Weinper

jurd Minz of the Imk pendent Workers',
league. Edward I. Hanna and oiheri

the I'nlted States in the great war.!

newspapers in your state to thwart
this new insidious and dangerous pro i
paganda of ihe enemies of America. '.
I We will be glad to aid in establishing
citizens committees to combat this ur
gent matter "
This direct appeal is made to the of
ficials of Ogden :
"We ask you to aid us in this cam
paign Wo should like to learn the
! sentiment of the people in your city in
this matter. Never more than at this
moment was It more necessary to
counteract the activities of the radicals

shevism We hope to hear from you
in regard to this matter at your ear
This Is a time cf unrest. With un
employment appearing, the radical?
know the hoifv of opportunth is at
hand, and they are proceeding to in
flame the minds of those out of work
and even the men who are employed
jbut are filled with discontent. Abnor
mal times aro upon us and the atmos-'
phere is charged with explosive forces.
Those" who see clearly the menace
and desire to avoid a calamity of vast
proportions should discourage ever

Those who preach radicalism are
unmindful of the fact that their pro-
posed cure of industrial Ills, if ap-
plied, would inflict incurable diseases
far worse than any of the ill temper.
I Our commercialism has its faults
and gives privileges, but for the Himl
'nation of those inequalities there is a
way provided by legislation, which is

is no nerd for the drastic or the radl 1
