' 'Just now a belated effort Is under
way to find out some of the facta
I about government business' and gov-
' eminent employment.' The Bureau of
H the Budget has been organized and
Is In operation under the direction of
Charles O. Dawes.
Both houses of congress are work
ing on the problem of reclassification
of government positions and salaries.
The Veterans' bureau has been or
' ganlzed and has taken over Uie bureau
of war risk Insurance, that part of
the public health service which had
to do with veterans, and all of tho
work of tho federal board for voca
tional education except that part
which had to do with tho trcatmeut of
persons Injured In the Industries.
f There Is also tho Inquiry being mode
I by the Joint committee on tho re
organization of the administrative
branch of the government of tho two
houso of congress, of which I have
spoken. Walter F. Brown of Ohio Is
chairman of this committee, represent
ing President Harding. The members
of tho committee are, on the part of
tho senate, Senators Sraoot of Utah,
Ilarrlson of Mississippi and Wads
worth of New York. The members on
the part of tho house nro Repre
sentatives Reavls' of Nebraska, Temple
of Pennsylvania and Mooro of Virginia.
Tho Job of this Joint committee Is
to "make a survey of tho ndmlnlstra-
o services of the government for the
iurposo of securing all pertinent facts
rcgardtng their powers and duties,
k) their distribution among the several
T executive departments, and tho over
lapping and duplication of authority.?
' In reporting the resolution from the
Judiciary committee to the h( the
members ,wcro told :
It Is a matter of common knowledge
that million of dollars are waited by
the government by the almost endless
duplication ot activities. There has been
no fundamental change In the adminis
trative activities since the organisation
was devised by Alexander .Hamilton, and
the remit Is that activities entirely out
of harmony with the functions of depart
ments have grown with the passing years
until the government of the United States
has become not only the biggest business
In the world, but the world's worst man
aged business.
The purpose of the resolution Is to
ascertain so far as possible the extent
ot the overlapping and, duplication ot ac
tivities, with the view that numerous
commissions and bureaus may be elimi
nated and a great: saving effected In the
governmental expenditures. The commit
tee feels that no more 'constructive legis
lation Is possible under existing condi
tions than the legislation proposed by
the resolution. With the present condi
tion ot the nation's finances and the bur
deni tho people suffer because of exces
slvo taxation, any legislative measure
looking to real economy should commend
Itself to the sympathetic attention of the
house, and ws feel that the passage of
this resolution and the work ot the com
mittee which will be done under Its au
thority will result In the saving of mil
lions annually.
It can bo predicted with considerable
assurance that nothing will come of
this proposed voyage of discovery un
less1 we, the shareholders In the cntcr
' prise, malntnln an nctlve, lively, sus
tained Interest In It. One thing Is al
ways true, ot the. house pf repre
sentatives it is representative. ?f
I wo brcatlie Warmly upon It, It glows.
If wo nre Indifferent It becomes cold.
This isn't tho first time that a plan
lina been sqt in -motion to find out
something about) how.tho government's
business Is conducted.
The parllest Inquiry Into tho ad
ministrative methods of tho executive
departments was mndo by tho Cockrell
commission In 1887. "Six yenrs later,
In 1803, a Joint commission, Of which
Representative Dockery was chairman,
was appointed to examine the status
of tho laws organizing tho depart
ments. President Roosevelt In 1005
k named an Interdepartmental committee,
of which 0. n. Keep, assistant secre
' Cv tary of the trensury, was chairman, to
, fc, consider department methods. Presl
' dent Taft In turn, In 1010, named a
' A commission on economy and efficiency
i ' of which Frederick Cleveland was
I l chairman.
Broadly and generally speaking,
t ." nothing came of theso enterprises.
You and I commonly nnd vaguely
ii llhown as the public were not In-
, tcrcsted, and neither una congress.
. That ended It.
4 But Just now, nt'thlfj moment, we
p' havo tho best chance wo ever had to
'4 -' find out oboiit our common business
1 '4 and how to Imprnvo It and lessen Its
S cost to us. Tho burden of supporting
II It is heavier than ever before.
You will perhaps notlco all through

At this season of the year when
people's finer sensibilities nro
brought to expression In a universal
spirit of giving, it Is natural that wc
are concerned with the happiness of
our loved ones. Especially aro our
thoughts focused on our children. It
gladdens our hearts to bring Joy to
them. Wo nro rejuvenated in seeing
them rejoice. Without stint do we
ahotwer upon them tho gifts of our
wealth and blessing of our hearts.
In sharp contrast to our bounte
ous supplies of the necessities and
the good things of life is the condi
tion of famine, disease and suffering
which stalks tho people ot the Near
East. Even today there are more
than ono hundred thousand little
children in tho Near East Relief Or
phanages who cry, not for toys, but
for bread. They want only enough to
allay tho stinging pangs of hunger
nnd cold. They are tho orphan chil
dren of the oldest Christian nation
In tho world, famished and shlv
erlng through no fault of their own,
but victims of War's grim ravages.
Wo face the solemn fact that thoy
will die by the thousands this win
ter If American relief Is withdrawn.
Tho glamor of the war has gone.
Real love, clear vision nnd true sac
rifice nro asked of us now as never
before. It is only this that will res
cue the Near East from obliteration.
Upon a previous occasion I havo
called upon tho peoplo of Utah to
help. Being fully awaro ot tho ready
response, the sympathy and tender
pity which my former appeal mot,
and having been edoply moved per
sonally by the descriptions ot un
parrefled suffering of thoso Httlo
one3 overseas, I ask again that those
of ua who1 can glvo either food or
money do so. Let ua increaso our
contributions In a true spirit of Yule

The beet Sugar Industry Is so Im- ffiW

states that It must bo saved. HuPfl
In Utah and Idaho alono about UuiiH
four million bags of sugar aro pro- liLLa
duced with each annual harvest, rLLB
which brings about $18,000,000 at
present prices. This sugar Is manu- H
factured from beets that aro grown iH
on about 160,000 acres of land. j
Tho wheat and alfalfa end of our lfl

much wealth In wheat would requilro feLH
tho successful cultivation of ono mil- HH
lion acres, and to produco that much H
woalth in alfalfa It would requlro
tho cultivation ot two million acres, H
both estimated at present prices. H
With theso figures in tho minds PpfH
