BLOW THE WHISTLES. ? Sing them over again to me, wonderful words of life. When the whistles burst forth this morning in diapasm, recalling the H first Armistice Day, the old words were changed to-- "Blow the whistles again for me, wonderful sounds of cheer.'' Before the dawn of Monday, November II, 1918, the sirens opened wide. The shrill and th deep throated steam voices seemed to be saying: "Rejoice! Rejoice! The end of sacrifice is here! Our hoys are saved from the shambles of Europe!" On Novembei II, 1918, we were at the top notch of i rve ten sion. We had war with its bloodshed, influenza with its deaths and a world topsy-turvy. We had regulation and restraint until the whistles blew. No wonder, with the sudden release ft m those bur dens of mind and body, there was hilarity, and joy an" ecstrcy; no wonder there were wild men and wild women. The streets were crowded from early morning until late at night and tiic xcitem'.-nt did not cease except through exhaustion. That was the day of liberty, ol happiness, of glory. THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. m Recalling the tremendous events of a year ago today. President Wilson has delivered a message, saying: "A year ago today our enemies laid down their arms in accordance with an armistice which rendered them impotent to renew hostilities and gave to the world an assured oppoitunity to reconstruct its shat tered order and to woik out in peace a new and juster set of inter national relations. The soldiers and people of the European allies had fought and endured for more than four years to uphold the barrier of Civilization against the aggressions of armed forces. We ourselves' had been in the conflict something more than a year and a half. With ; splendid forgetfulness of mere personal concerns, we remcdeUd our 1 industries, concentrated our financial resources, increased oui a.-n-cultural output and assembled a great army, so that at the last em power was a decisive factor in the victory. We were able to bring the vast resources, material and moral, of a great ana free people to the assistance of our associates in Europe, who had suffered and sacri ficed without limit in the cause for which we fought. Out of this victory there arose new possibilities of political freedom and economic concert. The war showed us the strength of great nations acting to- j tgether for high purposes, and the victory of arms foretells the endur ing conquests which can be made in peace wrhen nations act justly and in furtherance of the common interests of men. To us in America the 1 reflections of Armistice day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude , l for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity which it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the community oi nations." America was the slumbering giant which Germany aroused. When this country was stirred to action, Europe saw the power of a fier p:o- pie moving to the aid of outraged civilization and. as President Wfl- 1 son says, America's power was the decisive factor in beatmu back, i oppression. DEFENDING UTAH'S GOOD NAME. The Standard is pleased to note that the Commeicial club of Salt Lake City is fighting in defense of the good name of the people of I Utah. No great part of this state of ours can be charged with being debased without that charge casting odium upon all of us. We who live here and make this our home cannot afford to be stigmatized as being part of a community given over to that which is immoral and degrading. When accusations of that kind are made, it is our ruty to be heard in resentment. And so the Commercial club, acting to that end, has issued a public statement as follows: "A statement of refutation issued by the board of governors of the Commercial club of Salt Lake City : "The attention of the Salt Lake Commercial club has been I Kleenmilk It carries the cream line so valued by every housewife.

H Phont 1236. 633 31t 8t ll called to the appearance in newspapers in the United States of a syndicate article bearing the date line of London, England, in some instances as 'October 19,' from the pen of one purporting to be George Selden, writer of the English mctropol's, which is vicious, inconsistent and maliciously false in its accusations against the Mormon church. "This article, sent broadcast throughout the United States, contains quotations credited to one Winifred Graham, to whom the article refers as a novelist, some of which are as follow : " 'What is Mormonism doing in England? It works secretly as in America and snaps its fingers at law in both countries. This very minute the church elders have twelve hundred girls rtady for shipment to Utah.' " 'The Mormon chuich pays the fares and offers excellent wages, but once it gets women over it uses them as it pleases. The war gave the Mormon elders their greatest opportunity for proselyting. In the absence of the men folk and because of the deaths of thousands of soldiers the women of the poor:r ;!asses fell easy victims. Secret meetings were held in homes that at tracted the neighborhood without attracting suspicion.' " 'Every girl is baptized. They then become :ilent about polygamy, but they become either polygamous wives or slaves of the Mormon church. Occasionally we hear of girls who are slaving on Mormon farms.' "The Commercial club of Salt Lake City, Utah, through its duly constituted board of governors hereby desires that it be known that it has taken cognizance of and read these statinnts, which it brands as being vicious in intent and so obviously incon sistent as to be their own refutation, and they are scandalous, pernicious and false. "The Commercial club, in line with its activities from the lime of its organization, is critically persistent and thorough in its sur vey of conditions relating to the interests of our commonwealth and is fully qualified by its knowledge of facts to thus brand these sensational stones as unmitigated falsehoods. "The chuich of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, commonly called the 'Mormon' church, is working in harmony with other institutions in Utah, ecclesiastical and civic, for the maintenance of the highest attainable standard of morality, and has mad an enviable record in this accomplishment, as also ill patriotic and devoted service to the country's needs. "This Commercial club disavows and condemns with disappro bation equally strong the circulated falsehoods of 'Mormon' inter ference in state or national politics." Reinforcing the foregoing is the following statement from the min isters of the evangelical churches of Salt Lake: "To the Commercial Club of Salt Lake City, Utah. "Gentlemen : "Oui attention having been called to certain statements now being widely circulated through American newspapers as com ing from Winnifred Graham, an English novelist, charging that the commonly called Mormon church is still practicing polygamy and is bringing hundreds of young women and girls into the state of Utah either to become polygamous wives or to be consigned to white slavery or to industrial slavery on farms said to be owned by the Mormon chuich, we, the undersigned ministers having churches in Salt Lake City, have this to say: "That, having been pastors here for years, and being convers ant with existing conditions, hereby state that, while the Mormon church is strongly a missionary church and engaged in proselyt ism among Christians in Euiope, the United Stales and ether countries, yet simple honesty compels us to give denial to such published statements as we are convinced are untrue. "Polygamy is under the ban of the law in Utah, and we be lieve that institution is ding here. "As to the statement that the Mormon church is bringing young women and girls into Utah with the deliberate intent to put them into polygamy or into white or industrial slavery, we believe this charge to be without foundation. "The evangelical churches of Utah are as strongly opposed as ever to polygamy, but are convinced that it is here a passing practice." The Weber club of Ogden should join in condemning those who are defaming Utah. If we are to grow and prosper, as our climate and resources warrant, we must fight down the false stones as to home life in Utah.

MINUS HIS I BEARD. TO BE li OGDEN SOON Those who have seen recent pic tures of Lieut. John Philip Sousa have noticed that he and his internationally famous beard have parted company. iThe separation was one of the most painful incidents of the recent war. The beard is gone, but not forgotten. The bandmaster says that it will never again adorn his face though it was his cood friend and faithful companion jfor more than a quarter of a centry. ilt was cultivated first when he was 'only 22, and Just beginning his career. Following the then established cus tom adopted by young physicians of adorning their face with a hirsute ap pendage for the purpose of simulating 'age, young Sousa gave up shaving at Jthe time of his first assignment as band leader In discussing the aband 1 onment of his beard the other day, I Lieut Sousa said: "At the Great Lakes station, where 'I was assigned to duty when the war l broke out there were 2rt,000 men and only two sets of whiskers. Command er Grimes and myself owned these I sets. The more I associated with the youth and maturity of the day rep Irsented at Great Lakes, the more 1 I began to feel I was in the wrong or that my chin was in the wrong." ' You know the war of Independence was fought b smooth faced men, the Ciil war by whiskered men. and this present war by smooth shaven men. The thing moves in cycles, and, not uesiring to stand with the minority, I decided on the trim I feel much better, although somewhat lonely. I have carried the beard about for near ly thirty ears. We were very close. Seriously. I felt that the day of the beard was far past, and that modem efficiency called for ae smooth a face as a man could present to the world " Mr. Sousa and his baud will enter tain Ogden'a music lovers at the Tabernacle on Mondav, December 1 1919. - inrrvyw ence of Lieut.
