MAYOR It amounts to a spring ceremony with us driving down and spending an afternoon on the shores of Utah lake. Getting the wind in our hair, watching the ducks testing the balmy weather, marveling at Mt. Timpan-ogos Timpan-ogos and the Wasatch in the distance, noting with some envy the fellows who have time to fish, trying to identify ident-ify some of the wading birds, and watching the outboard motorboats purr and skim. It's one of those pleasures peculiar to Utah Valley, and one which thousands of Utah Ut-ah Countians enjoy. But, it's saddening to know that a creeping paralysis is destroying Utah Lake and the pleasures which it ati-ords. ati-ords. We chanced to wonder, last Sunday on the shore of Utah lake, what our response might be if outsiders people from another county or state came here and systematically began to pollute the waters of our beloved belov-ed lake. What would our reaction be if the swimming, the fishing and the boating on these attractive waters were being destroyed by outsiders ? The response would be immediate and adequate, we feel certain. Our county and municipal officers, alonj with our state legislators, would sprir;? into action to dtal with the intruders and to save our precious waters. Indeed, if they did not, the people themselves would assume ass-ume police and patrol measures if such were necessary to preserve so priceless an asset as our lake is. Is the lake polution crime any less serious because we are the perpetrators of it? Are the waters less precious? Are the issues less sharply drawn? Certainly, our need to save Utah lake is no less important, because an irresponsible irres-ponsible and thoughtless population is guilty, Mr. Mayor, Mr. Commissioner, Mr. Councilman, Mr. Legislator: are we asking too much? Won't you move forward oil this ! WHEN FATHER READ The young fry, if they ever ponder on the way of life thirty to forty years ago, doubtless wonder what the old man did to enjoy himself. Things must have been awfully dull. No radio. No television. Automobiles that were chugging, undependable piles of junk. Movies that were silent, fuzzy flops This bleak appraisal of yesterday gives us no self-pity. We find it a bit amusing, 4 bit pathetic. The average teen-aier today might deem it a fate worse than death to spend an evening at home listening to dad read a book. Dad ijiight think it a bit ludicrous himself. '. ' . But the family should try it some winter evening. They might get hold of something good. To make the setting complete there should be j bowls of apples and popcorn within easy reach We feel rather sorry for today's youth.

The Easter season has meant relaxation for a great many congressmen, but for others it has meant valuable time for work and study. One advantage of the great absenteeism from Congress has been the opportunity afforded those who remained to speak and be heard on important topics.

Hi Folks, We were having a discussion: are we victims of circumstances or are we masters of our own destiny? Being lazy by nature and not liking to think deeply, I listened and learned. This I gathered we're here whether v-'e like it or not we did not choose to come here at any particular par-ticular time. Certainly we had nothing to say as to who our parents would be, or our children. child-ren. It is a fact that most of us wanted to be just the opposite of what we are. So many little girls wish they were boys and viro vprsa . . . and so it goes. As I see it we are pretty much victims of circumstances. Psychiatrists say we are what we think . . . dietitians say we are what we eat. Psychologists maintain we are the sum total of the generations past, present and future. Religion teaches we are what we believe. At times I think we are the victims of all the mistakes past. I know a doctor doc-tor in this town who believes in heredity and environment 50-50 I wonder . . ? I suppose God in His wisdom and understanding often hides simple truths from the average individual. . It was ever thus lending mystery to life and things. If -we knew all the whys and wherefors we would find life a dull affair and there are too many things that cannot be explained away so easily. We are all entitled to our own opinions opin-ions but still I maintain we are victims of circumstances, else why wasn't I my boss and my boss me?

I President's War Letters continue to pour in from young Utahns and mem bers of their families concerning concern-ing recalls to active military duty. One Congressman suggest ed that all such letters should be sent to the President for reply re-ply and action. He took this view, as he put it, because Congress Con-gress does not share the responsibility respon-sibility of Korea the President assumed all this responsibility when he ordered American forces into action without seeking seek-ing the approval of Congress. Senators and members of the House, however, are always glad to help anyone who has suffered an injustice which merits serious consideration.

The oil company com-pany executive hopes to obtain a government loan so that his company can complete construction construc-tion work on a portion of the refinery's planned high test gasoline gas-oline plant. Wilson or Marshall x If the subject were not so tragic, it would be humorous and even a little mystifying. A newspaper headline labeled the views of government leaders as "The Pessimist and the Optimist." Optim-ist." General Marshall, defense secretary, saw a most serious situation facing the world and this country and called out for the draft and universal training legislation. Charles E. Wilson, mobilization director, was the optimist. He said, "America now has in sight the might that I think will forestall any enemy from attacking us." Particularly in view of Gen eral Marshall's words, consider the army's announcement that it has a 100,000-man surplus. In addition, the army is cutting the draft, at least it has done so for the coming month. Reservists, active and inactive, inact-ive, and national guardsmen now serving in Korea can well wonder at this strange manpower manpow-er question. ' si i 4 I I ?
