August 2S. ?Revelations given to the Prophet Joseph Smith, as recorded in the doc trines and covenants, Book of Mor mon. preclude any hope that the rati fication of the league of nations will prevent future wars, declares United States Senator Reed Smoot of Utah, In a letter to C. N. Lunn, jr., editor of a newspaper at Mount Pleasant, Utah. Senator Smoot's letter is written In reply to a communication from the editor in which the latter expressed the belief that the Utah senator*s stand for reservations would defeat him at (he next election. "I would consider that I was vio lating my oath of office If I failed to vote for the suggested reservations," Senator Smoot wrote. "Let me tell you that it would not surprise me to see President Wilson, whom you think has been directed by Inspira tion, approve of the reservations that I have outlined. I have no ddubt but that the controlled Associated Press would put the question In sbch a way as to make it appear as a complete victory on the part of the President. "1 cannot understand why you take it for granted that the league of na tions will do more for the world than the teachings of the Savior have been able to do. 1 do want yon to knw that I am doing what I believe Is mv duty to my church, to my country and to my God. I would not do otherwise if It cost me every vote In Utah." If you want work read the want col i umns of The Star. Copyright 1918 Hart Sdaltar fcMaa Opportunity is Fleeting!
