SHOW MORE ATTENDANCE
Byron Sharp, superintendent of the
Western Navajo school at Tuba City,
and William Keir, in charge of the
dairy there, were in Flagstaff on
Wednesday. Sharp is looking for
three teachers for the Indian school.
School opened at the Tuba- City in
stitution on September 11, with an
Initial enrollment of 246, which is 100
over the beginning registration of last
year. The Indian children often do
not come of their own accord, but
Sharp and his assistants have to go
out and do considerable persuading to
induce some of them to take up their
studies. He is usually successful in
gettting them to attend, by showing
them the advantages gained by going
Sharp states that the Marsh Pass
school will be increased in capacity
from 30 pupils to 160, and that every
effort will be made to have the work
completed by the end of December.
The Marsh Pass school is 80 miles
northeast of Tuba.

doors in the basement under a
pool room on the east side of
North San Francisco street were
a bunch of Spanish-Americans
gathered around a table across
which the ivories were galloping
right merrily. In through the
locked doors walked City Mar-
shal R. L. Neill and Night Offic-
er John Byrom. The dicers were
so engrossed in the game that
they never noticed the officers
until the latter made their pres-
ence known by asking how the
game was "comine on."
Proprietor Posas was assess-
ed $160 by Police Magistrate S.

declined to pay, intending to ap-
peal from the amount of the
fine; but later decided he would
pay. Each of the nine others
was fined $8.

KOLB COULD TAKE PICTURES
WITHOUT ANY CAMERAS
Ellsworth Kolb, one of the famous
Grand Canyon brothers, explorers and
photographers, says he got some fine
photos of Grand Canyon during the
trip he recently took with Aviator
Thomas, flying from Williams to the
rim, then circling the El Tovar hotel
several times, next flying around the
"Battleship," and then around over
Bright Angel creek and finally land
ing on the plateau down near the In
dian Gardens. This was the first
landing ever made by an airplane in
Grand Canyon. Just as they started
across the big gorge, twelve miles
wide at that point, the handle on Mr.
Kolb's moving picture machine snap
ped off. He kept on turning the
shaft with his fingers, as rapidly as
possible, and was surprised when the
roll was developed to find that he
had some very good pictures, better,
Aviator Thomas said, than the ones
taken by the Fox company specialist
who made a subsequent trip across
the canyon with the aviator.
TOM DRUMM GOES TO PRES-
COTT FOR MEDICAL AID
R. H. Drake, professor of science
and athletics at the Northern Arizona
Normal school at Flagstaff, passed
through Cottonwood Wednesday en
route to Prescott. He was taking
Tom Drumm to Dr. Southworth of
Prescott for treatment for blood pois
oning. Drumm had the misfortune to
chop his foot with an ax about six
months ago while at work on his
ranch. It never healed properly and
he neglected to seek medical atten
tion until blood poison set in and then
tried to take care of it at home, but
when he could not help it any; he
engaged Flagstaff physicians to take
his case. Feeling that he was not im
proving as he should under all exist
ing conditions, he decided to get into
a lower altitude and went to Prescott
with Drake. He had lost some of the
toes on the affected foot and was in
rather a serious condition. Mrs.
Drumm remained on the ranch. Jer

HAROLD BELL WRIGHT
MAY COME HERE NEXT
YEAR TO WRITE BOOK
Harold Bell Wright, ace of all
American writers, will very likely
spend several months in the vicinity
of Flagstaff next summer gathering
material for one of his famous novels.
Wright and his wife and boys were
here this summer and spent some
time at Oak Creek. This was not his
first visit here, but he became more
than ever enamored of-this section
this time, and expressed an intention
to come, stay longer and get better
Bill Walker, of Flagstaff, who
knows Arizona about as well as he
does Mexico, and both well enough to
draw a pretty good typographical
map, blindfolded, got back last Friday
from the Catalina mountains, east of
Tucson, where he spent six weeks
with the author and nis wife during
the former's quest through the big
hills for inspiration and local color
for the novel he is now working on.
Walker says Wright is the finest
chap he ever made a trip with. Com
panionable, perfectly at nome in an
old jumper and overalls, unassuming
and kind, he is a regular man, Walker
says. "I was usually dressed better
than Mr. Wright, and people often
thought I was him," he said.
The author is guided entirely by
his work when out idea-gathering.
One day they started off for a climb
of a distant mountain. They had
gone only a short distance, when
Wright got off his horse, took his
pencil and paper and began working.
Soon, without a word, he remounted
and rode back to camp. There he re
mained all day, writing. Walker says
he is a stickler for accuracy, one who
never would lell, as another author
did, about the stream of sparks flying
from the unshod hoofs of a bunch of
wild horses as they galloped over tho
stones. He insists on the exact shade
of meaning when using Spanish terms
common to the southwest, such as ar
roya, barranca, etc
One day Wright had to drive back
to Tucson, unwillingly, to attend to
the sale of some moving picture
rights which will net him around
?250,000 a year. The task was dis
tasteful, because he didn't want his
Wright told Bill about a visit re
cently back to the Ozarks, and the
little place where his story, "The
Shepherd of the Hills," was written.
He found the place a large town, with
a big water power development proj
ect going on, a big new lake, on which
boats were named "Shepherd of the
Hills' and from other characters in
the novel. A garrulous fat man, not
guessing the identity of the author,
pointed out the various points men
tioned in the book. Then he showed
him a pony which, he said, was the
one in the story. "Must be pretty
old now," Wright remarked, "as he
was about twelve when the story was
written. Must be about 35 now." "He's
the same pony," declared the man.
"We charge people 25 cents apiece to
ride on him." Later he asked Wright:
"How come you know so much about
the book?" "I don't know much
about it," was the reply, "I wrote it."

The bass are striking at Mormon
lake according to J.( A. Smith and
family who have just" returned from
an 850-mile tour of northern Arizona.
"We had a wonderful trip and if it
were out privilege to start out for
another 18-day jaunt northern Ari
zona would see us in preference to
any other spot in the United States,"
said Mr. Smith.
The route taken by the Smiths is
one that should be very popular in
that it circles the entire northern
section and takes in every point of
vantage except the White mountain
district which is worthy of a separ
ate trip in itself.
Starting from Phoenix their north
ern iournev was to Prescott. Jerome
and Flagstaff via the Sedona road, a
route some 75 miles shorter than by
wav of Ash Fork. Flaestaff. Wil
liams and Grand Canyon were visited
after which several davs were spent at
Mormon lake and Oak Creek. On the
return trip the Pine, Payson and Nat
ural Bridge route was selected,
with stop-overs at Lake Roosevelt and
Globe. No really bad roads were en
countered and the only muddy road
was south of Mormon lake where a
new road is now being constructed.
The car averaged 14 miles to the gal
lon of gasoline and 1400 miles to the

Clark's Ranch f
WKat the Taxpayers of Flagstaff Will Vote ont
October 2, Regarding the Project.
Four Questions Should be Considered and?
x Thought Over Before Voting
1 De we need another park for Flagstaff?
2 Will $60,000 be sufficient to buy the Clark ranch and con
vert it into a real park?
3Is the Clark ranch a suitable location for another park?
4 Is our income from our properties sufficient to guaran
tee the further adding of $60,000 to our already burdened prop
erties? Are our properties paying enough income now to cover
taxes and interest on the investment and to add an additional
I would answer the above questions as follows:
1 We do need a park, but not until some years later, when
our town has grown larger and we have paid for our schools,
street and sidewalk improvements, sewers, water, etc., and when
we have a better and improved lighting system for the town. It
is good to have parks, they help to beautify the town, but it is
much better to provide the town with really needed improve
ments which it should have had years ago, and also to give the
property owners a chance to get out of debt and keep down the
2 $60,000 worth of bonds will not provide a real park. $33,
000 of the $60,000 must be paid to the Clark estate, leaving only
$27,000 to convert the ranch into a park. That is not enough
money to make of the ranch a real park. What will be the result?
The taxpayers will be asked to vote for another bond issue of at
least $200,000 to finish the making. of the park. Better to vote
NO on the $60,000 bond issue NOW than to have to assume an
additional burden of some $200,000 later on to finish the job.
3 The Clark ranch is not a suitable location for another
park, as it lies too far away from the center of town, where if
possible a small park at little cost might be located, where band
concerts could be held, and a resting place for visitors and strang
ers provided. It would also add greatly to the beauty of the town.
4 Our properties are now not paying more than four or five
per cent on the investment, counting no taxes. The park will not
increase that income, but the added taxes will decrease the value
of the property.
Some contend that the ranch property can be sold for $250 a
lot, and that it is a good speculation. But why should the town
of Flagstaff go into the real estate business? Why not let the
Clark estate or a company sell the lots? How many of us would
care to buy a lot or two of the Clark ranch as a speculation? Not
many of us. Why then should we think it a good investment for
the town to take up when we would not care to invest in the lots
ourselves? If it is not good policy for us, individually, to invest
money in the lots, it would be poor policy to have the town of
Flagstaff invest our money that way.
After carefully considering all these facts it is our duty as
taxpayers to vote as we think right on the $60,000 bond issue
YES or NO. It is our bounden duty to do so. Vote as you
think best, but VOTE, so that later on should the bond issue car
ry you can have no excuse to offer.
Everyone in Flagstaff, taxpayer or not taxpayer, whether
in favor of the bond issue or opposed to it, is cordially invited to
visit THE NEW YORK STORE and inspect my line of WINTER
GOODS now on display and which is wellworthy of your inspection.
