A motor boat of entirely new de
sign, remarkable for the simplicity
of its construction and excellent work,
paddled down the river from Needles
last Saturday, on a trial trip, and
stopped a short time down at the
landing west of town. This boat was
built and is owned by Bud Norton,
of Needles, and the idea is all his
own. It is nothing more nor less than
a plainjordinary river boat with a
plain,-ordinary Maxwell automobile
mounted on the. rear end of the, boat.
The make-up for navigation is very
simple. The auto is run by its own
power into proper position upon the
boat. There it is securely held in po
sition by iron clamps. On the hind
wheels, is bolted or clamped a series
of blades or paddles, and that's all
there is to it. The change is made in
a very short time. In navigating, the
chauffeur or pilot takes his seat on
the automobile, turns on the power,
and steers, the craft the same as he
would on land, a simple arrangement
having been provided for this purpose.
Mr. Norton said he made the journey
in excellent time and had no trouble
whatever in riding over the worst
whirlpools and rapids in the river.

Did you ever notiee the difference between the sixe of erowd la sv
; store Saturday afternoon and other days of the week?
The telephone company is now serving a "Saturday aiternooa
'crowd" every day.
Since the war began the business activity of the country has been
expanding with abnormal rapidity. This has required constantly
more and more telephone aervioe for the business houses.
Complete telephone systems have been built and are maintained at
more than fifty training' camps over the country. This has taken a
tremendous amount of equipment and the services of a large number
ef skilled telephone men.
Many of our men are constantly engaged in iutalling and maintain
. ing the equipment used only by the Government in this country.
. In addition to this, our Government needed, skilled telephone men
in tho prosecution of the war, and these could be furnished only, by
the telephone companies of the country.
In spite of the war and what it has meant to this company in the
increased number of telephone messages to handle, the enlistment of
so many of our trained men, the shortage of equipment and the high
cost of materials .
. In spite of all these obstacles, we are meeting the needs ef the publia
; for telephone Bervioe la a remarkably successful -way. ' - " -'',
