Th© people of Soda Springs are no donbt feeling "all swelled up" over the creation of Caribou county and see the establishment of their town as the. Ed Whitman : seat of government, went to the legislature with that one 1 of object in view—making a new coun- j ty out of the eastern portion of Ban- 1 his nock and It was largely due to his ef forts that the bill got through both j Ed is a fighter of the Roos-1 evelt type and when he starts out to | houses. accomplish a thing he doesn't care a continental whether he steps on any body's toes or not. The only criti cism we have to make is that Ed didn't name ''his child" after George Gorton, who was one of 8oda Springs' pioneers. It would have been a fit ting memorial to his memory. Well, here is to Caribou county and Soda Springs, may you grow and prosper. a BREAKERS AHEAD. There is no use in attempting to longer disguise the fact that a serious condition exists in this country and the nation is menaced by the Bolshe vlkl element which has gained a far too firm a foothold and is increasing its membership every day. From ev industrial center comes notes of warning and from the government is coming urgent appeals to every com munity to see that the returning sol diers are given work promptly and thereby removed as far as posst ble from the contaminating influence A sry are of this vicious element. So tar as these appeals go they are all rights and it behooves us to do ev erything In our power to head off this propaganda which has for its program the overthrown of our gov ernment, the disorganisation of soci ety and the obliteration of Christian jcltlzenshtp, but this is not enough. The organizations which are formed v Co throw their protecting wings over ■JJ^tli« soldiers should flood the presi dent and congress with appeals for a cessation of profiteering and demands * that the special Interests which are plundering both the government and the people be cut adrift rrom their anchor hold on the avenues of trade, finance and politics. The Signal has stated this before, but it cannot do any harm to repeat it again. We have no use for that class of laborers who want exhorbitant wages and the minimum of work. The fel lows who are demanding increases in the face of a decline in the value of j all other commodities are parasites ! ,. . and we do not believe any great num- j ber of soldiers will be influenced by them because they know a good share of them were slackers during the war and rushed to the ship yards and other Industrial cent'ers to escape I ' I lives for their country there were ! military duty, but the soldiers are also aware that while they left their business at great personal sacrifices and were willing to sacrifice their those In position to get government contracts, and those who handled war , materials, our food supplies and the| necessaries of life, who made millions 1 while they languished In training campB or went to the trenches and the battle line across the sea. j If\we want to gain the support of the soldiers in our fight against the j Bolshevists we must convince large j numbers of them that we are to pre serve our government for the whole people, including them, and not for the Morgans, the Rockefellers and lesser luminaries in the millionaire firmanent. We must convince them that when they return to their farm homes and to'Other avenues of life there is to be a chance for them un der the sun and that their future years are not to be devoted entirely to paying for the clothes they wore and the equipment and bought at exhoTbitant prices while they were enlisted at $10.00 per month to fight kaiserlsm. We must convince them that those who are anxious to look after their welfare, and are solicitous about tbe preser vation of the gov courage to tackle the greatest prob lem before the pepple, i. e., the secur ing of a qsuare deal tor all of our citizenship and the curbing of the power of big business. The writer has talked to many ot the returned soldiers, and knows what they are thinking. They ere not in sympathy with Bolshevism, but so long as they see before them only years of struggle against poverty and taxation to pay the wer debt while the idle rich are allowed to con tinue their system ot reaping where they have not sown, they are indiffer ent and are disposed to let the rest of us worry until such time as Me ehow manhood enough to take a Kland for a square deal. There is no disguising the fact that they are dis satisfied and nothing short of a rev olution in our économie system is go ing to satisfy them. The more radical may even encourage the Bolshevists, but not because they believe in thslr nlahed them ernment, have the program, but because they hope tbe agitation of these people will arouse the rank and file, Including the far mers, the small business men and the professional men to the dangers which threaten us and perhaps in this way bring about the hoped for change. 17, held 22, The Signal wants to see every sol dier get a lob. but it also wants to see him get a square deal and 'he cannot get it unless he is given the : full fruits of his labor and is relieved Is the the are of al all 1 of the unjust share of the war burden j big business is planning to shift to 1 his shoulders.— Welser Signal, j We would like to meet Ole Hanson, mayor of Beattie, and give him a | hearty hand shake. He has demon strated that he is 100 per cent Amer ican. and it is due very largely to the firm stand he took that the general strike in Seattle was brought to a speedy end. A few weeks ago very few people beyond the confines of that city knew who its mayor was, but today the name of Seattle's ihayor is known from one end of this nation to the other. We don't know whether Ole is a Dane or a Swede, whether he is a blonde or a brunette, whether he weighs 150 or 200 pounds, but we do know that he has got the right kind of stuff in him, and this country needs more men now Just like him in offi cial positions. Examiner Jan. 3 says hard wheat flour is worth $1.00 per 100, pounds more than soft wheat flour. If that Is so, why does not he and all other wheat buyers pay $1.00 more per 100 for hard wheat than they do for soft wheat and give the wheat raiser the advantage? Soft wheat flour would then sell according to its value, and both kinds of wheat would be paid for according to their value, and erybody get paid according to the value of wheat they produced. As a farmer, I think this question very important. A FARMER ASKS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION It Editor Examiner:—The Montpelier Milling Co's, atricle published in the a do of in of j ! j by ev A FARMER.

At the end of this week there Is an attendance of approximately ninety per cent, and the majority of the students certainly are "hitting the ball," as they express It.

Sketches of the life of Abraham Lincoln were given by Russell Brough and Mr. Farnsworth. There were also sever al musical numbers and readings which were thoroughly enjoyed by all present. The public is codially Invited to attend these exercises each Mr. Dawson reported for duty Wed nesday morning, and all of the stu dents were very glad to see him back. He will have charge of the English department in School. Due to the shorter noon period a number of students have found It difficult to go home for lunch, espe cially during stormy weather. To re lieve the situation thé Domestic Sci ence department has started a caf eteria which has proven very popu lar with the students. the Junior High Dollars and Cents.
