Fifty-eighth OG0EN -CITY, UTAH, SUNDAY MORNING, AUGUST 21, 1927, by Frank Francis Having read in News and Views that landlordism was disappearing from more' than one country, Thomas Shreeves called attention to a move- on in England to open to the common people rich owners. ;rcat areas held by Mr. Shreeves. who is 77 years of age, thinks the world Is getting he rejoices that the land of his birth is more deeply interested than ever in the welfare of the plain people. This fine citizen, who has gone by the allotted years of man, says he re- members as a youngster a discussion In his father's shoe shop of the ques- tion of free public schools and he re- calls one man declaring against free education because It would make the common people dissatisfied with their lot. It does not seem possible that with- in the life time of men now living, and in a country so highly advanced in civilization as England, that free schools were opposed as a source of discontent. HONOLULU, Aug. The Associated three air- planes and their occupants lost some- where between, the California main- land and the Hawaiian islands, vag- rant and unconfirmable radio mes- sages reporting the. missing planes as having been picked up or seen electri- fied searchers and aroused 'hope. But each message, invesitgated by naval vessel or aircraft proved false, and the hopes that six courageous men jpd one brave girl were about to be rescued were cruelly dashed. Radio experts were loathe to 02- lieve that these radio messages, sent by individuals who could riot be iden- tified or located, had been sent as a hoax. They thought, instead, that they might have been fragments of conversation concerning the planes, picked up by amateurs, who excitedly mistook them for the .news .of' the plane for which the whole world has pliines for which the whole world has This is August and much of the most I the wave-tossed machines. No mili- deliehtful time of the year is, justify pr commercial radio stations ahead. Why think of winter, while so many beautiful days are to be en- joyed? If you must think of winter, why not see beyond the winter into the spring? Unrest has made for the world's progress and given to humanity Its brighter outlook. A woman, clearing her lawn of fall- en leaves, saw in the sere and yellow the approach of fall, and said: "The fall reminds me of winter and I regret the passing of summer." sages 'Unconfirmed Eadio Mes- Arpuse Hopes, Then Disappoint NAVY- GIVES AID Flying Machines and Boats Scan Waters for Missing Or, if your thoughts are of -winter, why not look forward to that period as does 'the small.-boy who delights in winter sports? Much is in the mental approach. "Kow does-It happen that the peo- ple of your city do not salute the col- ors when they go by In That question came on a post card and was signed "Stranger." The stranger undoubtedly referred to the parade of the American legion of Friday .which, 'by the way, was most interesting. The failure to salute Is no doubt due to the fact that Ogden does not have marir parades in which the flag is and' the people forget. SaZuting the colors as an expression of respect for Old Glory Is a simple act. signifying love of country, should not be neglected. If you are a grown-up, remember to salute next time as an example for the younger generation. The children must be taught that no flag has a more glorious history than the Stars and Stripes. The presence of the large number of American legion boys in Ogden dur- ing the week was a calling back of the events of nine and ten years ago. In August. 1918, the allies had felt Ihe powerful hand of America extend- ed across the seas. A little later victory had been as- sured and then came the tremendous news which made the first Armistice day the wildest day of celebrating the world had ever known. Then came the occupation period, when troops by the hundreds of thou- sands moved into the Rhineland. Gradually the invading forces with- drew, but here it is nine years after the war and thcre'are still in Germany 5K569 French and 7312 British sol- diers. The war will not be ended until this last evidence of the conflict has dis- appeared. Tho indications are that the last foreign soldier will leave German soil in less than three years.

An amateur radio operator at Luke field reported having intercepted a part of a message from an. jlnlocated. .ship Dole flight plane Golden Eagle had been picked up. A few minutes later' a second mes- sage was intercepted saying that the Golden Eagle was "being picked up." Efforts to confirm or trace mes- sages were futile. The Luke field radio set is not an official army sta- tion. It an amateur station. built and operated by men stationed there. PATROL ISLAND WATERS The fourteenth naval district ex- tended'the search today for the miss- ing Dole' planes, sending' aircraft 'and submarines to comb the huge tri- angular area north of the-island .of Hawaii which previously had been less searched than' other regions.' Two patrols of two planes'each'left'the Pearl Harbor air station before a. m., fueled for flights, of. approxi- mately 400 miles each. One .patrol went" to island, around which they 'to swing through Pailolo channel. The second patrol'started for Hana, at the south- eastern tip of Maui island, from which they were to return to Lahaina, via Alenuihala channel, joining .the first patrol. The plane's in each patrol were ordered to fly about 10 apart, and to send ra_dio reports of their positions every 15 minutes. Police Declare Carter Has Made in Swindles DENVER, Colo., Aug.

CRITICIZE GOVERNMENT Authorities here are in many in- stances seriously concerned by the criticisms leveled in foreign countries against the American federal govern- ment in the matter of the Sacco-Van- ze'tti arrests, trials, convictions and approaching, executions. The depart- ment of justice of the federal govern- ment is widely internationally held to have inspired the proceedings in Massachusetts against these two.alien- Italian anarchists and to be engaged now in concealing numerous ascer- tained facts which-, if revealed, -would establish'the innocence of the. con- demned men and. would save their lives. The United States of America thus has been put; under an interna- tional cloud which'has caused much anxiety not only in the department of justice' but' in 'the- state department as .well. What particularly .distresses officials here is that'this cloud seems to-them entirely unjust.and also entirely un- necessary. .This writer is able to say that to his personal .knowledge.'there is material in. the files of the. department-of .jus- tice which deserves and demands toe following assertions. about It: One.

BY WILLIAM BIRD Special Dispatch to The Standard- Examiner. (Copyright, 1927, Consolidated Press Association.) PARIS, Aug. 'British propaganda throughout Europe is rap- idly convincing'. continental opinion that America's imperialistic ambitions were the stumoling block to naval arms limitation. Not only have British diplomatic representatives in every capital been furnished with data with .which to set forth the British case, but it is declared, here on good authority that special agents have been dispatched from London to every important cen- ter in the continent for the purpose of influencing the press and-.public Already the tone of many news- papers, which at first were neutral as between England and America, is changing, and British arguments' are set forth to the great disadvantage of the United -States. FOR .QUICK ARBUNG If is clear .-that "there is' a concerted effort to persuade the world that, whereas -England desires nothing but the ;prbtection of "her commerce and communications, the-- United States is bent on that can serve only for offensive ends. No account' is ...taken of the fact that, the foreign commerce of the. United States is practically equal to that, .of the'-United- Kingdom, and that limiting cruisers to six-inch guns would place "American trade at the i mercy of Great Britain, because of the ease with, which she could arm her immense-fleet of -merchant ships. Simultaneously -with .the-' launching' of the "campaign in Europe against I am- bitions, British propaganda in South America .is reported to have been sing- ularly intensified. IN SOUTH AMERICA Persons here in- contact- with the South American continent declare that-ever even during the agents have, been at work- in various ways. The Latin- American policy in Mexico and Cen- tral America .has. been -held up. as an example of the treatment. to which South American countries will 'be subjected if the-United States becomes strong enough in a naval way to defy the .British navy, which is represented as -the' small states' protector against Yankee aggression. .In.the .case'.of South America, mil- lions of .people are declared, ts have become convinced., that the United. States- desires a strong navy iii order that it may.seize a monopoly ol'South American trade and natural resources, exploiting the .mines and plantations in the interests of American capitalists and. controlling -the- world- markets 'in agricultural products. Against such an organized campaign of propaganda emanating from Lon- don, the .-American, government' stands it -'is declared, and is doing nothing to combat it. Many Euro- peans'familiar with Britain's methods are astoriis'he'd.'tha't' tlie United States- does not meet this -campaign with similar. weapons and justify, in the eyes of .the world, those acts. :for'which it is now held up to universal oppro- brium. HOLDS AFFECTIONS It is certain that so far as the.con- tinent of .Europe, is concerned, the United States has a stronger hold- of the affections of nations ..than Eng-.- land has, but'the design, of'the Brit- ish to change this situation by and persistent propaganda has a good chance of succeeding. The present risk is that such -.a campaign as now is being'waged may in very short order place America in the position of' pre-war Germany. Germany's naval' ambitions enabled England to link the continent pretty unanimously-against and if the continent be 'convinced that America -has: similar ambitions the effect'may be very much thi same. WESTERN TOWNS RECEIVE SHAKING Forecasts Success of Proposed County Fair in Coliseum; Remarkable Pulls Shown on .Machine in Horse Tests; Exciting Moments Occur During Bucking Events.
