BOYS COMMIHEE OF ROTARY CLUB MAKE PLANS FOR LOOKING AFTER WELFARE OF YOUTH; GREAT RESULTS ARE PREDICTED How the Ogden Rotary club has helped the boys and will help them in tho future was outlined In a report read to the Rotary members by Wil liam G. King, chairman of tho boys' committee, which includes, besides himself, George Goddard, Grant IIol ley, John S. Lewis, Lloyd Mitchell, A. L. Drewer and William II Williams. Tho report In part follows: At the last annual convention of In ternational Rotary a resolution was adopted making "Boy Weirare" tho principal work of Rotary during the coming year and following up this res olution, our President Driggs lias ap pointed a committee to take up this most Important matter. Your committee has the following recommendations and plans of action to put before you at this time, and for your approval. Tho work- among the boys in Ogden has been divided among the members of the committee as follows: each member becoming chairman of a specialized sub-committee: Boy Scouts, George Goddard; em ployed boys, Grant Holley; State In dustrial school welfare institution, J. S Lewis; juvenile court, Lloyd Mitch ell; parks, playgrounds and public fimusements, A. L. Brewer; public schools, W. II. Williams; street trades, George Bennett This has been done to cover the en tire field and accomplish the best re sults. These members arc choosing their own committeemen. Tho idea Is to assist organizations already in tho field or where little, if anything, Is being done by other organizations. We suggest in addition to tho Boys' Night already observed by this club, that a night be set aside for boys about Lo graduate from the grade schools and another for boys graduating from lilgh school and that the suporlntend ant of schools be asked to address tho club on "How our School Helps to Pre pare a Boy for a Successful Career." Wo propose to hold ourselves in readi ness to show boys the valuo of good education and influence them lo go on through high school and college. A successful lifo is based on tho power Lo serve. One will servo best in some certain discoverable direction. Few boys are aided properly, if indeed at all, in discovering what careers they are best adapted to. Tho committee on public schools, composed of quali fied men can render aid in this direc tion. This committee can, for in stance, talk with boys one at a lime who arc about to graduate from gram mar school, and with their records be fore them, by careful questioning as to their tendencies, be able to advise the boys concerning their further educa tion, and give a friendly word of sug gestion as to in what vocation they might make the best success. ilfflS FSCE 11 PBD8LEM TO CLEAR TRACKS OF DRIFT From three to four feet of sand and snow mixed over approximately five miles on tho Oregon Short Lino and Denver and Rio Grande trackB in the vicinity of Farmington and Kays ville, according to reports brought to Ogden today. It is said that the train which left Salt Lake on tho Bamberger at 8 o'clock last night transferred its pas sengers and they arrived in Ogden at 5 o'clock this morning. Passengers said the track on the electric road had snow drifts com pletely filling cuts to a depth of ten feet. The snow and sand has packed1 like cement into the cuts on the threo roads between Ogden and Salt Lake. Workmen using picks and shovels are new employed in clearing the cuts. It is said that it ha3 been practically im possible to use snow plows to clear the track. Reports received In Og den last night were to the effect that three snow plows were 3tuck in the sand and snow drifts. I oo Noted Wrestlers Here To.Wifeess Big Match Wrestiers of national reputation are in Ogden to attend the Santel-Har-bertson match at the Alhambra thea ter this evening. Mike Yokel, former world's champion in tho middleweight class, Ira Dern, contender for world's honors In the 158-pound class, and Ro manoff, one of the best heavies In the game, are already in Ogden to witness tho contest Jim London is also ex pected to attend. oo San Francis'co Chosen As Convention City WASHINGTON. Jan. 8 San Fran cisco was selected today by the Demo cratic national committee, in session here, as tho place for the party's 1920 national convention. After -27 votes had beeak cast for San Francisco, Kansas City and other cities withdrew and tho vote for San Francisco was unanimous.

This morning the dial on the thermom eter at the city hall registered 19 above. At tho same hour yesterday the mercury stood at 23 above zero. The weather 'man in his prediction says: Fair tonight and Friday; colder north portion; not so cold south portion to nigh L i Tho noed for vocational training for our boys is daily becoming moro ap parent. Rotary has a great opportun ity for service in promoting it. We suggest the desirability of our club ioining the National Society for Voca tional Education and advise with them concerning tho enlargement of the vo cational education department of Og den schools. This will come under the jurisdiction of Billy Williams. Wo sug gest taking groups of boys through factories and plants of Rotarian3 and others in order to awaken latent ablli- , ties. A. L. Brewer will urge tho increane of gymnasium and playground facili ties. Lloyd Mitchell and hin commit tee will offer assistance in the juvenile court work and become big brothers to tho boys who got into trouble and In every proper way encourage them to tako a new grip on lifo and make a start in the right direction. Georgo Goddard Is already devoting much of his time to Boy Scout work and will point out tonight the oppor tunity for RoUiriaus as scout masters and scout officials. j Grant Holley and his committee will ! encourage boys to earn money in part time employment, primarily to dovelop themselves, secondarily to learn the value of money. They will also inter est themselves In those boys who are compelled to Gupport themselves and others. Boys will bo encouraged to save money for an educalion. Each Rotarlan could do no bettor thing than start off some poor boy with a savings account which could not be drawn on till he Is, say, nineteen, unless for tho purposo of educating him In a way ap proved by you. A schedule of money prizes might be worked out for the ten best-showings each year. George Bennett and his committee will get acquainted with the news boys and messengers and see what can be done to benefit them. J. S. Lewis will offer assistance in connection with the Stato Industrial school, and other definite welfare in stitutions, and endeavor to back up movements for the moral uplift of the boys in Ogden. j A committee meeting will be held within the week, at which time more definite results will bo reported, and, from which a more concreto report can bo dolivered to tho club. This is not a work for one day or one week, and it is the desire of this committee to measure up lo the tremendous re sponsibility placed upon us by the Rotary club.
