Ogden Standard-Examiner (Newspaper) - March 7, 1927, Ogden, Utah WEATHER to- night and Tues- day; little chanso in temperature. IDAHO----Cloudy south; probably rain north; some- what -warmer. It Is more .blessed to give than to Be charitable and indulgent to everyone but Fifty-seventh 336 OGDEN- CITY, UTAH, MONDAY EVENING, MARCH 7, 1927. LAST EDITION by FraukFrancis "I know spring is said an Ogdenite. "High up on Twenty- eighth street, where we live, the bluebirds and meadow larks can be heard. Xhey are there in great numbers." Regardless of the calendar, spring is here when you feel the Thrill'of spring from bird, or grass, or balmy air. APPROPRIATION BILL REPORTED; WEBER COUNTY GETS NOTHING After 40 Years, Son Finds Mother Old and Feeble In Old Folks' Home Dern Nominates Several Ogden Men for State Positions Spring is here when you are thinking in the terms of spring. Did you look out your west win- dow at 7 o'clock last evening? If you did not, you missed some- thing- Far up on Twenty-fifth street News and Views met a little group strolling. "Glorious after-glow of sunset." said one. "Yes, no place in all the world like remarked another. The sun had gone down below the ribbon of silver on the west- ern horizon marking Great Salt lake. There was a crimson glow and in the sky was the mopn in its crescent. To the southwest were purple mountains and the darkness as of night, To -the east, high up, were the pines with a background of white, reaching up to the snowy peaks. Close by were the cliffs, and in the air was the softness and balmincss of a day in June. You have read of the Italian, gliding over the smooth surface of the Bay of Naples in- his boat, skirting the shore, who, indulg- ing in day dreaming, declared he cared not where the sails carried him, for his spirit held sway be- ;neath the walls of Paradise. No one need go to the Bay of Naples for inspiration, while Utah possesses so much of charm in sky and earth and sea. A ship on fire drifted out to sea at night. On the wings of the air goes a message, like a prayer to an unseen power. There comes an answer and the forty men aboard are rescued as the "flames envelop the ship.' That is almost as miraculous as when the children in the wilder- ness prayed for succor and manna came down to siive them. If we were not familiar with workings oC radio, how deep- ly we would be impressed with the story the rescue. Today the mariner can sing pven without the faith of old which inspired the song: "Rocked in cradle of the deep T lay me down in peace to sleep Secure, I rest upon the wave." do Valera, -Irish repub- lican leader, on arriving in New York on Sunday, was welcomed by the mayor of the city and thousands of his admirers. Tt is eight years since'DeValera was' in Ogden. Standing on the running board of an automobile in front of the Union station, he urged the friends of Irish free dom to support his cause. Then followed the conflict in Ireland which made DoTaicra a fugitive. His counti-y became torn by In lornal conflict and the advocate of complete independence lost the goal of'his ambition. But what is so often seen is disclosed in this case. The leader of uncompromising, irreconcilable attitude appeals to the imaglna- T-eaderahip in any direction -'alls for y, positive character who does not recognize opposition and never doubts. An English writer complains that the people of the world are without correct knowledge as to tho activities of the League of Nations and ho proposed to col- lect, a funO of with which to educate the people as to the meaning of the league. M-? points out that in four of tho principal papers of London. in the past yoar, less than 70 col- j iimns about the loague has ap- peared in each paper. ARMORY AT BBIGHAM D. D.

This, he finds, is one-tenth of what has been printed about one popular cigaret: less than one- ic-nth of what had born printed about one brand of soap. Then the writer makes this (comment. "In a.n atmosphere of i widespread intelligent opinion the league will flourish: in its con- 1 tinned absence it will languish." This is acknowledgment of the tremendous power of the press and the influence it exerts in the 1 making of world history. It is a statement of the power advertising. (Continued on Page T-IVO.)

Shumakcr and Lieutenant E. W. Goss, Denver aviators who took off from field hers yesterday morning in a powerful be Haviland plane were forced to give up the attempt to car- ry medical supplies to the towns of Silverton and Eureka, Color- ado, isolated by storms and "snow- slides for almost three weeks. Their first attempt to cross the divide was made at St. Elmo, 120 miles from Denver where the flyers encountered a 1007mile-an- hour gale. The air was foggy with fine snow and visibility bad. Flying at feet the "ceiling" for the De Haviland, Captain Shiimaker drove the big plane into the gale with a wide-open trottle. only to find the De Havi- land actually moving backwards. The wind coming over the divide spilled downward like water so that the machine lost altitude so rapidly that they were forced to turn tail and run for it to avoid "cracking up." RIOTING STUDENTS DOUSE PRINCIPAL MANILA, March The Associated Times says Principal James A. Wright of the Trinidad farm school at Baguio, not only was tied to a post by rioting students yesterday, but al- so was ducked in a brook. An investigation of the incident has been ordered by Governor General Wood. The cause of the riot has not been made known. A dispatch to ,the Times, from Baguio further developed that Wright -was rescued from the stu- dents by a woman friend and a party of her acquaintances. It previously was. 'reported that his wife had effected the rescue. Wright is not married. Happy Again at Home of Her Bov By ROY J. GIBBONS, NBA Service Writer. 1927, NEA Service, .Inc.) CHICAGO, March the hill to the old folks' home in the" valley near Blanchardville, Wis., went Mrs. Sarah, Hoisington. She had fought the good fight. Now, with the white hair of her S3 years tucked under a poke bonnet, and the memories of un- availing toil and motherhood strung out into the past, she bowed her head in resignation as if to a fate. They took her in and gave her an old folks' home's comforts. Her hands were "gnarled with service for others. There was a wistful look in her dimming eyes. Those at the home knew. As for Mrs. Hoisington, she thought of the husband who had left her 40 years before to wander never more to be heard from. She thought of the two children-with .whom she had made her and who now were dead. But most of all she thought of Willie, "her boy whom her husband had taken with him. almost half a century before. Was he dead, She wondered. THE WANDERER Meanwhile Willie Hoisington had fared far. His father had taken him -away, and then the father had disappeared. Willie had grown' up. He had moved about .from city to city, remem- bering little of the past. He had married and moved to Chicago. The past, a, mystery, had always fascinated him. Where was his mother? There came two daughters and then a son.- These grew up. They were Willie's children. The. past, the lost legend, of Willie's boy- hood, mystified his own. children just as it did .-him. One of Willie's daughters mar- ried Jind. two. .grandchildren- The maternal urge spurred on the. mother. she.said one day, "you say Wisconsin is the state you re- member your father took you from. Maybe your mother stayed behind. If she is living I want her to see her great-grandchildren. Let's try to find her." Many letters were sent out. Finally one came in reply from the Blanchardville, post- master. It said an old lady named Hoisington had been received at the county home seven years ago. She now .was near -death, it added. Willie went immediately to Blanchardville. A feeble old lady, roused from what everybody be- lieved was her death bed. met him. She didn't know him and ho could not remember her. "I'll tell you a she said. "Do you remember And then she told him of an incident that had happened in "Wullie's" early boyhood. Willie remembered. He supplied the. details.
