At the head of the Weber. Council
of Defense, which is a part of the Utah
State Council of Defense, is Dr. E.
M. Conroy, elected on last Thursday
to fill the vacancy created by the res
ignation of C. C. Richards, who has
moved to Salt Lake.
Dr. Conroy is the right man for the
place. He has the ability, energy and
'Jj enthusiasm. He is the man who, with
Thomas G. Burt, obtained relief for
! Ogden during the coal famine of early
jj winter.
1 Dr. Conroy believes the local Coun-
j cil of Defense has a most important
j task to perform, as it is the organiza
'I tion through which the government
jj keeps in touch with the people and
v J makes known how the people may best
! co-operate in winning the war.
j The Doctor intends to make a vig
orous campaign for the cause which
the Council of Defense represents, and
i he should bo supported in all his un
j j dertakings. He must receive the back
I ing of the community, with the same
I i
show of patriotism and sacrifice as is
accorded any other branch of the pub
lic service devoted to maintaining the
solidarity of the American people. Fi
nancially and morally, the Council of
Defense should bo given encourage
ment by Ogden.
On Mbnday, the members of tho
British labor mission will be in Ogden,
and speak in the Tabernacle. Hero Is
a quotation from Charles Duncan, one
of the party:
"It will be time enough to talk about
peace when those who declared war
desire peace. I am one of those who
believe that war is hell, and that the
people who declare war should be
made to smell hell."
Commenting on this utterance, one
of the local labor leaders presents the
"Our British visitor put it bluntly,
but he put it accurately. Germany be
gan the war. Germany has got to want
peace before there can be peace. If
Germany must be beaten by military
might before she can bring herself to
want peace, then that is what must
bo done. Every American wants peace.
Americans have wanted peace always.
That is why we were not ready for
war. But wo may want peace with all
the yearnings of which our souls are
capable, without making peace pos
sible of attainment one minute before
Germany wantsJpeace. The great rea
son for this Is that we do not want
the peace of slavery, we do not want
the peace of subjection, we do not
want the peace of dominant Prussian
autocracy. We want the peace of free
dom, and we will have no other. We

December was a favorable month
for tho nllles In the warfare on sub
marines, according to information giv
en out by our navy department.- Dur
ing thnt period moro U-boats wore
sunk than Germany was ablo to build.
In a statement mado in Washington
Inst night, which evidently came from
Secretary Daniels' office, tho follow
ing encouraging promises wore con
voyed: "American naval officials appear to
bo satisfied that tho weapons with
which thoy expect to crush finally the
submarine menace . are forthcoming.
Increased numbers of patrol vcssols of
various types, appliances and devices
to make them moro effective against
underwater craft and tho increased
skill of navy personnel are among tho
things upon which they count. It has
'taken time to devise and build tho
weapons, but thoy aro beginning to
become available now.
"When tho United States entered
the war, the navy contributed prompt
ly all that it had available to join In
tho submarino hunt. Sir Eric Geddes
paid high tribute in his remarks to
the spirit and efficiency of American
naval units, crediting them with a fair
share of what had boon accomplished.
Vice Admiral Sims' destroyer forces
have constituted only the advance
guard of what the American navy plan
ned to furnish for the fight. Evon
with that limited aid the allied navies
havo held the enemy and are now de
stroying one out of every four or five
German U-boats that put to sea.
"Now America's real contribution to
the naval warfaro is about to be felt
With every passing week tho strength
of the force will grow, for it is embod
ied In the most extensive construction,
program ever undertaken for the navy
of any power.
"The new destroyers and other craft
must bo added to tho patrol fleets
gradually as they are completed.
Therefore no" sudden falling off of ton
nage losses Is to bo expected. It has
been stated publicly by high British
naval authorities, however, that next
August will show beyond question that
the U-boats have been overcome.
There are officials here who are hope
ful that decided results will be appar
ent before that, perhaps as early as
May or June."
One out of every five U-boats that
put to sea Is a good record, and that
should take the nerve out of the Ger
man crews.
An American naval officer says tho
improvement in the U-boat situation is
in great part due to the nerve-strain
which has been placed on the Germans
by the silence of the deep, a policy
adopted by the British at the begin
ning of the war on submarines. When
no word comes back from the U-boat
the uncprlainty as to the fate of the
crew is kept alive by mystery, and,
after a- time, this constant interroga
tion, with no reply has a demoralizing
effect on the men who go down Into
the darkness of old ocean, and event
ually they lose their morale.
Two suggestions made by a promi
nent fruit growers may be put into of
fect within a short time.
One is to have the county supply a
first-class spraying outfit to respond to
the demands of tho fruit growers of
city and county, at a small cost.
This would bo an excellent move
and will receive the attention of tho
county commissioners. As spraying
is not only worth while but absolutely
necessary to successful fruit culturo,
no part of tho county should be with
out access to spraying equipment.
Quite often the place most in need
of treatment, Is neglected by the own
er, and as a result becomes a breeding
spot for insect pests that invade the
neighborhood. Then In the city, those
taking a pride in their gardens, Vould
spray, If they could hire the work
done by a reliable expert. One or two
trees, perhaps a dozen, In each yard,
require attention, but the owner can
not afford to rig up an entire plant
for the limited service.
Another proposal is to have central
hot houses for tho tomato growers
where Instead of trusting to individ
ual effort, tomato seed could be plant
ed and developed until ready to trans
plant to the fields.
With trained workors, tho tomato
plants could bo given most competent
In his diary of impressions he
formed while in .Germany just prior to
the war, James W. Gerard, our ambas
sador to Berlin, takes a rap at Ger
man kultur and, Incidentally, pays a
high tribute to tho Jows. He says:
"Subtract tho German Jows and in
the lines of real culture there would be

(By an Ogden Woman.)
A time thoro was in days of yore
It seems that long ago or moro
When wo could live and aleep and eat,
Regardless of tho cost of heat,
Or qunntltcs of whoat and meat.
Then women hold their social teas
And lived in luxury and case.
No care about the whcatless day
Did Interfere wi(h social stay,
Or drive the Joys of life away.
O, yes, tho w6men then were free
To shovel sugar in their tea.
And, what was yet a greater ill,
To swell tho growing household bill,
Wore using candy at their will.
In Hon of sweets tho men, indeed,
Found pleasure In tho filthy weed.
(Fatlma, Omar, Dixie Queen,
Mado vile tho balmy air serene
Made homo and street a smoky scene.
"The war Is on," the country cries,
"Bo patriots and sacrifice!" !
So oceanic life and corn
Are served for breakfast every morn;
at noon and night the spread adorn, j
Tho women now right fervently i
Forego tho sugar in their tea,
But, what is even better yet,
Confectionery thoy forget. 1
They'll havo no action to regret. j
But do tho men tobacco save
To send It to the fighting brave?
Tho old cheroots are still in use,
Tho filthy weed receives abuse,
The streets are yellowed with the
The truth crops out as ne'er before;
Tls not the men who fight the war.
The rwomen save and work and knit
They sacrifice to do their "bit."
Do likewise, men tobacco quit.
A. N. 1
(Salt Lake Tribune.)
The correspondent of the New York
World, now with tho American army
in France, takes a serious view of the
task confronting the United States
and he does not believe the people of
this country fully realize what is be
fore them. "This is a roughneck war,"
he declares. "We aro up against a na
Uon of roughnecks, and our men must
bo just as rough and tough as their
enemies." There Is no doubt of the
truth of his observatidn in this re
spect. In order to win we must beat
the Germans at their own game. He
does not man that our men shuuld vie
with the Huns in the commission of
atrocious crimes or exhibit unneces
sary brutality, but he does believe that
our soldiers at tho front should use the
same weapons as the Germans. "This
is not a contest for points," ho says,
and then proceeds in this strain:
" 'It follows, naturally. In the wake
of this incontrovertible fact that the
war for the United States must be
fought by strong, two-fisted, fearless,
red-blooded soldiers commanded by
strong, two-fisted, red-blooded offi
cers. The war Is being fought in
France not in debating societies or
chambers of commerce or Bible class
es or legislatures, state or national, in
the United States."
We believo the World correspondent
has the right view. The Huns will
strike us below the belt if they get the
chance, and it is our duty to beat down
their guard and put them out without
any fiddling around the ring or sparr
ing for an opening. Unfortunately we
cannot do this until we got moro men
across the seas, but the time will come
when they will go over the ropes and
the struggle against the autocracy will
be over.

Tho Ogden Oil & Gas corporation
has closed negotiations with two pro
minent Ogden men to go up In the
Green river district of Wyoming, and
locate for tho company several sec
tions of oil shalo land, It is claimed
contains from GO to 115 gallons of oil
to the ton.
The shale Is exposed in places to the
height of 65 feet and tho property is
right on the railroad, which will make
it a cheap hauling proposition.
The pure parafflno a quarter inch
thick is exposed between the layers of
shale, and this is only ono by-product
found in the shale of which "there are
eight, and then the residue after all
by-products have been extracted, is
very valuable as a fertilizer.
The Ogden Oil & Gas corporation
aro to be congratulated upon acquiring
this valuable asset to its 2000 acres of
oil and gas land here in Ogden and
Utah Lake near Provo which has been
passed upon as oil and gas bearing
land by government experts, the com
pany expects to let Its first drilling
contract the lattor part of this month.
Major Will S. White, the sales man

the country and its people against
enemy aliens.
The law requires that -every indi
vidual, whether wholesaler, retail
vendor or purchaser of explosive ma
terials, either already manufactured or
for manufacture, must provide himself
with tho necessary permit or take the
consequences provided by the law.
According to D. C. Dunbar, United
States inspector .of explosives for Utah,
tjhere are hundreds of persons in this
state who daily handle explosives, or
materials employed in tho manufac
ture of explosives, who have made no
provision to comply with the law. Mr.
Dunbar, during the past two months,
has issued broadcast warnings to all
persons of the state, especially ad
dressing dealers, wholesale or retail,
and, while tho resulting applications
for permits have been gratifying, the
warnings havo been .rather too gen
erally ignored.
"There seems now but one way to
bring these violators to see the error
of their way," Mr. Dunbar states, "and
that is to make some arrests by way
of example. I propose to inaugurate a
plan of campaign immediately to check
violations of this, one of the most im
portant laws of the country. Arrests
and prosecutions will announce the in
auguration of the crusade."
Mr. Dunbar explains that when the
government put into effect the explo
sives law the only thought in mind was
to check the promiscuous sale of ma
terials of an explosive character to
persons with no right to have them in
thoir possession. The law designates
as eligibles for license citizens of tae
United States, and. in rare instances,
citizens of nations known to be friend
ly to this country. Provision is made,
however, that each applicant be prop
erly vouched for by two residents of
the section in which license applica
tion Is made.
The license fee is 25 cents, but every
person, from wholesale manufacturer
to consumer, must provide himself
with one before he can legally have
explosives, or ingredients for making
such, iri his possession.
