When the boys of the 91st division made their drives in Fiance and Belgium, pride in their glorious achievements was no where great-1 er than in the west, the home of the soldiers of the Wild West unit of the army. Tomorrow the soldier boys are to arrive in Ogden. Among the he roic fighters are sons of Utah, and Ogden is well represented. It would be a slight, if we were to allow those noble fellows to pass through without manifesting our love for them and our appreciation of the sacrifices they hae made. No country is worthy of a soldiers' devotion that does not show gratitude. Ogden should give the 9,1st a rousing reception. i. POLITICAL YEARNINGS OF I OGDEN CITIZENS. tj June is the month of brides, and May brings blossoms, but April c 'is the time of political promptings. It was in the month of April when more than one good man was v induced to emerge from private life, stait on a career of publicity, leading to notorietv and office holding, and in after life to regret it S all. a And this is April in Ogden and, while the buds of political ambi tions are bursting, there are a few backward tender plants that, to escape the early frosts, are not swelling into prominence. Still, what is not in evidence, is made up for by reports from that famous scrutinizer of things seen and hidden, Gossip. r: Now Gossip says that A. R. Heywood once more is being persuad- f ed to allow his name to be presented as a candidate for the office of fi mayor. "But," says Gossip, "let it not be understood that Abbott R. is alone flirting with the gay damsel. Miss Political Chance. There is a Samuel G. Dye, well known banker, who is not a stranger to the roses A strewn in the path that Abbot Rodney walks. G! Samuel is cautious en as to how he acccDts the beautiful flowers offered him, as he says thorns sometimes are hidden beneath rich foliage." to There is John Spargo. He is a young business man not afraid to 1 speak out in meeting. He, too, is being glibly talked about by the! in Old Woman who tattles. J Samuel Browning, present mayor, whose first initial is T which' pi stands for plain Thomas, is said to be not adserse to accepting a sec-; ond term. What he will do when he sees Abbot R. coming back can :n! only be conjectured. f J So here is the present line up . T. Samuel Browning A. R. Heywood Samuel G. Dye John N. Spargo Tomorrow The Standard will continue this little serial, entitled, "Political Yearnings," by introducing the following: Miles L. Jones Captain J. Ray Ward to Earl Geiger John Forristall. ..i SENATOR SMOOT AND p McADOO. ac . 1 Senator Reed Smoot is offended be- p" cause William G McAdoo insinuates th, that Utah's senior senator was comou flaging when he declared his opposi tion to the covenant of peace Tin senator declares the amend ments have so changed the original that his conscience will allow liira to withdraw from the npsl Dl thi iound robin. Senator Smoot should wrestle with his conscience until he can reconcile his present attitude with his position at the time of signing the. round-robin vrhen he Joined in declaring that he i stood with George Wellington in op position to entangling alliances with Europe. It will bo shocking if the senator finally goes back on the Father of his Countr) uu GENEVA AS SEAT OF PEACE. The New York World is pleased over the naming of Geneva as the seat of the League of Nations. The World says The Swiss city is designated as the moral capital of the world, the site of I the temple of International justice, and it was inevitable that there should be other contestants for the distinc tion And If the award Were in re quital for Injuries sustained in the war, the claims of Geneva would ob- viously be subordinate to those of Brussels J But it is precisely for these rea I SOUS that the choice is logical and sound, Geneva is a neutral city In the Country which more tlum any other in Europe has exemplified the highest i traditions of neutrality for centuries. l Is because Switzerland has always stood for the principles of freedom and justice which are embodied in the i ovenant of the League of Nations be cause It has always been an asylum for the oppressed of other nations, that there is ;i peculiar appropriate- ness in the selection of om- Q its chief! cities to keep the ark of that cove- nant. The country that defied the pow-j er of England rather than surrender one of the regicides has a lone rec-1 ord of championship of human liberty, And where else in all Europe could I a city be chosen for this honor more acceptable as respects situation, en vironment and intellectual and spirit-! ual traditions? nn- - WHY THE LOAN SHOULD BE SUBSCRIBED. Monday the Victory loan will be be fore the people of Ogden. Here is whal a prominent authority says of the new bonds : It is the general verdict that the def inite terms of the victory loan arc satisfactory. Tne rate of return to invet prs is increased over that al lowed by the previous war loans. Those who pay only Qic normal rate or war taxation are able to obtain a security that is exempt from all state and local taxes as well as from the normal federal tax. and yet yield 1 per cent on the investment. The aver ago investor has only to compare this return with that yielded by other safe investments in order to realize fully the advantages that are offered to him in the new loan. The four year maturity feature will assist greatly in preventing depreri? tion of the victory notes belos their face value. Thus any moderate oi f mall investor who may be forced by accident or misfortune to sell his le tory notes and no one should sell any of the government's war securities un less forced by necessity to do so presumably will not be called upon to Mistain even a slight loss. While the new loan Is a most desir able form of investment, the app il ol the great army of campaigners cannot and should not be limited to business considerations. Four and a half bil lions is a "huge amount, to raise," as a member of the federal reserve ban! says, an patriotic reasons must re-en- 1 1McMuHrmr Flatcote 1 i TheLiquid Mll Rper 111 1 lull -"No wonder you are enthusiastic "FLATCOTE can cover a multi- 1 about tliis 'Liquid Wall Paper.'

This is the season of baseball. With the fine days of spring, and between shower?, young America is out with t be ball and bat. We notice in the pictures from Cob lens, German- that the American sol-J dier? are popular with the children on the Rhine. There is noi a group of douphboys without a little German boy or girl sandwiched in. In a camera View of the old 69th, taken before the famous n-giruent left for home, are to be seen boys, ranging in ages from 6 to 14 years, and they are in the front l'ne The youngsters have good faces,; are neatly dressed in knickerbockerr , and show no signs of privation. But what relation Is there between baseball and the soldiers on the Rhine and why are the children brought into tho story? Well, here is the answer: We wonder what those boys in knee breeches who trail after the soldiers will be doing when thc spring itch for baseball, that breaks out on the aver age American, begins to manifest it 1 self at Coblenz? They will be mysti fied at f Irat and be lo9t in the intri cacies of the game. The German boy knows nothing of America's national pastime. But, before the end of this season baseball will be a craze on the back lots of the territory occupied by Pershing's men How to throw and bat and run . how to slip and slide and catch; 'how to yell all those things young Heinie will learn. The fathers of young Germany may shake their heads, and with disgurt exclaim "Och!" but the hopcfulb will go on playing and at least one indeli ble mark of the American occupation will remain When the troops come home and only a remembrance of thc American invasion is left to nag at the hearts of the inhabitants of Rhineland, baseball will recall the days when the athletic Btfldlers who crossed the ocean were the unwelcomed guests of Teutonic homes. MILITARY MEN DISCUSS ARMY COURT-MARTIAL WASHINGTON, April 17 The tern of military jurisprudence is de signed to produce an efficient, depend able fighting army, not to do exact justice o Individual soldiers. are.,rl ing to the views vigorously presented today to the committee of the Arucrl can Bar Association by army of titers of field experience, including Major General Edwin F Glenn, organizer and" eorumander of the 83rd division and now again in command of Camp Sher man. In attaining that objective, the. officers contended, the present ma ; chlnery for enforcing military disci-1 pllne had proved both efficient and fair, the final product of the sysrem Closely approximating justice to the' individual In addition to producing; wh.it General Glenn described as the. best disciplined army In France rases of court mariiai sentences 50 excessive In the penalty awarded as to he ridiculous were freel) admitted j by the Officers Such sentence, only sened. General Glenn insisted, to pro e that even In the early stage of tbe military legal proceedings, ih" ac tion of ihe court? in no case being final, to prove that fairness was the general rule Judge Gregory, chairman of the com mittee, and General Glenn engaged in considerable argument which brought out that the officer, speaking both from his military experience and his special training in civil law as a grad uato of the law school of the unlver slty of Minnesota, saw little in com mon between the purposes of civil Jus j lltf HI1U lis Hi una i rijuiinirui .'lujyi rharles H "MacDonald, General Olenn'S divisional Judge advocate, at Camp Sherman, but who 1p a tempo rar officer and before the war was counsel for the federal trade commis sion, followed his chief and expressed the same views. "You are not looking for exact Jus lice." Major MacDonald declared, "when you are building an army of the size of that the United States was building. Suppose men did get sen-' tences of 20 years or 40 years. Tho. dishonorable discharges were suspend ed and they went to the disciplinary i barracks probably to be restored tol sen Ice if they were worthy of restoi "tion. It was the lesson involved "When exact justice interferes with the building up of the army, exact J:i tice must be sacrificed." "There Is, of course," Major Mac Donald added, "some room for im proement. There always ! in any system of law or taxation; but the present army justice system is a wry efficient machine. We have felt that we could attend to the question of ex-1 act justice after the war."
