MONT KEMMEL A DANGER POINT. Mont Kemmel is the prlvotal point on the Ypres salient and. if the Ger mans succeed in gaining that high land, the British will be forced to move back from a long stretch of the front in Flanders in the obtaining of which they yielded up rivers of blood. By Sunday a clearer idea of the relative strength of the contending mmmmmmem - forces should be obtainable. If the Germans cannot gain the key positions around Ypres and6 before Amiens in that time, they may be coniplotoly stopped in the great drive which start cd on March 21. Once broupht to a full stop, they may never regain the Initiative. With American troops flowing into the bat tle area, the preponderance of men and guns should, early this summer, be on the side frt the allies Germany is not at its height in man power and gun-power. All the re sources of the empire have been con centrated on the west front, and hav ing been tested and found deficient the future for Germany will stow dark. oo CHILDREN PART OF GREAT ARMY. Are the children to help win the war? Winifred Black answers in the affirmative. In an article which in spires hope, she says "Over in London they are going up I l 1 1 Only 3 1 j I In Which to Buy I Your Washer I On Special Easy II Terms Out tpedal offer on Electric Washing Machines will be withdrawn on April 30.

Eocles Building Telephones 655 and 656 !on the roof these days to listen to the thunder of the guns across the channel far away in France. "In Paris the school children are huddling together in the basements of the school houses waiting for the shells to drop, and while they wait lhe sine the Marsellni;'v "Over hero our children are listen ing, too, and singing but they do not wait. They work. "Tramp, tramp, tramp' Hark! 1 1 is the echo of thousands and hundr- d of thousands of sturdy younc feet, all marching to join the great nrnn of school gardens. From all parts of the country' they are coming, eager, enthu siaatic. full of determined hope and glowing loyalty. Rich and poor they come, boys and girls, from the kinder gartens and from the grammar grades. The United States war-gardou army already numbers up into the hundred thousands, and if the mllstmoni goes on as It has boqun it will not be long until 5.000.000 children are in the ranks. "The service pin have not hern ieni out from Washincton yet, but when they are that army is going to treble overnight. What boy or girl can re sist belonging to the great army and wearing a pin which tells every passer by that under that pin there bents a patriotic heart? The children thought it was just goinc to be fun ni first, but now they realize that this United States war-garden army is jut as se rious and just as important a part of our great fight as any branch of the government service. 'They are learning the salute, too. military fashion- shoulders back, head up. eyes right, palm outward I saw a link fellow in a racged coat draw him self up like a major general the oiher day and salute an officer in khaki who swung past "Mechanically, the otfirrr - h LQd swept to his brow in thf answering sa lute, and then he paused, smiled, and turned back " 'What branch of thr service are you in. son" said the officer "The little ragamuffin threw up his grimy hand and saluted acaln United States war garden army,' he said. 'The service pins ain't here yet, but I belong to the army Just the same.' "Some hungry little boy over there In Belcium is going to have a good meal some day just because a little ragamuffin joined the army and saved food for his own folks here at home. "What a great time we live in and how bound together we all are with the close ties of love and fear. There arc no rich and poor these days no old and no young, no good and no bad, I had almost said. We are all just Americana, and the smallest child in the streets feels it and knows it just as the greatest man in the country' feels it and knows It." oo HOLLAND STRIKES AT UNITED STATES. Holland has given the United States a big surprise. Without preliminary exchange of notes The Netherlands has notified out government that tin, quinine and other articles of export from the Dutch East Indies can no longer be obtained from that source, as an embargo has been declared, ef fectlve April 22. Washington is puzzled over the or der, which may mean an act of retalia tion inspired by the Americans com mandeering Dutch ships. But it is possible the Dutch are seeking to placate the Germans by an outward show of resentment over the ship seizure. The Hollanders themselves will suf fer quite as much as the people of the United States. The cutting off of those exports will work great hard ships on the Dutch East Indies, Ogden is deeply interested in the embargo on tin There are twenty odd canneries and a large tin can fac tory in this district, which, if tin plate were unobtainable, would be forced to close at a time when a season of great activity is Just ahead. A very large acreage of tomatoes and peas has been contracted for by the canning companies and the can plant has or ders for millions of cans to be supplied the canneries and the condensed milk factories in northern Utah. oo AN UNCALLED FOR SLUR. When Senator Sherman of Illinois was engaged in his abuse of the ad ministration yesterday, in an effort to discredit the head of our government and add to the worry of those who are directing the affairs of this nation at the most critical time in the history of this country, one of his own party should have halted him long enough to inquire as to what he Is doing to uphold the hands of the President Sherman attempted to 6how that ev ery man called to the higher command was a square peg in a round hole. At the end of his philippic, he should have been informed that of all the square pegs in round holes in public life, he was one of the greatest misfits as a senator supposed to be doing his utmost to help America win the war. His attacks please his German con stituency In Chicago. He has not the courage to openly state he Is laboring to win the pro-German vote by mak ing an assault on the president of the United 'States. He gains his objective by resorting to comouflagc. On the Republican side, be is performing the same unmanly service as that which made Senator Stone in the Democrat ic party a sneer and a by word. Eventually men like Sherman will be anathematized by the American people. Sherman's criticism Is of the nap ging, haraiaing kind, which cannot serve any purpose other than to dis tract those who are deeply involved In the labor of making this country equal to the mighty task of forcing back a menace to our liberties A barking. ?nappinc cur, at the heels of one en gaged in a great undertaking could not be more out of place than is this s.merkrnut senator from Illinois. ONLY ONE GREAT CAUSE BEFORE AMERICA. Point inc out the latest form of dis loyalty, the Rutte Miner offers Un sound advice "U there la one brand of pro-Ger-manir propaeandlst in this nation who should bp exposed whenever he deliv er ,,n 'address' and who then should he kieked out of the country, il is thai pro-Hun man or woman who makes a ipeeeb ostensibly on some American subject hut which is nothing other than an argument in behalf of Ihe kaiser and his methods. "That sort of individual usually picks out some title for his speech which will seem to give it an Ameri can flavor "He or she, as the case happens to be. will announce a 'talk' on the sub Jetc of 'American Methods' or 'Ameri can' something else and then instead of civlng a really patriotic or loyal ad dress, will proceed to harangue about 'class struggles' in this country, about the 'munition profiteers,' about 'what Germanic thoroughness has laugh, us' and all that sort of thing, the very' evi dent purpose, beneath the verbal cam ouflage of the subject as given, being to incite class hatreds, cause unjust suspicious, boost Hun doctrines and thus spread a lot of harmful propagan da which Is just to the liking of the kaiser and his ganc "This is no time for the preaching of "class economies' and other such things, the discussion of which is meant to be for the sole purpose of causing discord if possible In this country. "There is not a class in this nation today but what can well afford to for get all about its class claims until this war is over and the kaiserites have been conclusively defeated. There Is no other preat cause before the Amer ican people today, but the American war cause." oo HE CONCEIT tT FIRST M. i CHURCH A large audience gathered in the First Methodist church last evening to listen to the first public recital of Fredric Moss' vocal and instrumental pupils. None of the pupils, with the ex ception of Miss Beatrix Musser, had more than about 50 lessons with Pro fessor Moss and their work was cer tainly a remarkable demonstration of voice developmenL Arnold Read appeared twice upon the program and aroused genuine on thusiasm with his rich, powerful and expressive baritone. Mrs. Edith Lemke showed a contral to voice of great purlt and richness. Mrs. Laura B. Taylor appeared to great adantage in two numbers that displayed tasteful treatment and a clear sweet soprano voice. Miss Marie Ingebretsen surprised all by her exquisite rendering of two num bers in which her dramatic soprano was most effective. Miss Beatrix Musser is rapidly be coming a most artistic singer, her beautiful mezzo-soprano voice and mu sicanly and skillful treatment of her selections won for her unqualified praise. There were two piano numbers on the program, both of unusual difficul ty, which were played by Bessie Lee, a young miss of aboat 15 years, whose technical skill and musieanh interpre tation won deserved applause. oo RED CROSS MEETING IN SIT LIKE CITY There Is a general Red Cross meet ing tonizht in Salt Lake City.

You can see a striking reproduction of this famous masterpiece in our window today.

Saturday will be the last day that our stores will sell soap by the case. We have been forced to come to this decision on account of other dealers attempting to buy our stock in a plan to force our price up. We are always glad to have bargains for consumers but do not care to save competitors $1.50 per box on the price of soap. Some grocers have been buy ing our soap at $4.50 and charging their customers $7.50 or 2 bars for 15c. We may publish these grocers' names. Recently we were forced to withdraw our price of 10c on canned corn to avoid other dealers securing our stock. Such tactics work a hardship on customers, and we think it our duty to publish the names of those who have been guilty. PORK LOINS, 25c for Saturday morning. Stock lasts until about 1 1 o'clock.
