At the last vestry meeting of the
Church of the Epiphany last week,
an invitation was extended to the
Rev. Francis Bloy of Mesa, to take
charge of the parish here. It is im--possible
for him to accept the call
now, however, on account of duties in
the south, but it is hoped that he will
reconsider his decision later on, as
he has made a large number of
friends in Flagstaff.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Q. Thomas and

The annual picnic, given by the
"old" teachers to the new teachers at
Emerson school, was held at Pump
House canyon on Saturday. Although
the last year's teachers are known as
"old," none of them are ancient, and
all are good looking, and exceptional
ly good natured. One of the main
features of the picnic dinner was fried
chicken, the kind mother had. The
place-cards given to members of the
faculty emphasized characteristics of
the various teachers.
Before returning to Flagstaff, a
number of the teachers went to Oak

plished at an early day. This has
been known for a long time, and en
gineers were sent to the Colorado riv
er twenty years ago. The use of
transmission of power for long dis
tances makes the river of more in
terest every day.
"The river means much to the coun
try it runs through, and it has an im
mense bearing on this state. The
beauties of the Grand Canyon and
other canyons in this locality mean
a great deal to the state, and the
growth of traffic to Arizona through
the last two years proves this.
"My first visit to this country was
39 years ago. In 1883 I got off of
the train at Peach Springs, and from
there went to the canyon and the
river. Before leaving this locality, I
Visited many points of interest around
here. In 1885 I was in this country
again, making Flagstaff my head
quarters. The town has changed so
much I would not recognize it as the
same place. I knew a few of the
Flagstaff residents then, but most
of them seem to have disappeared or
changed. San Francisco peaks and
sunset mountain have not changed in
the least, however. I hope to come
back- again, and when I do I hope the
transformation will be greater."
"I can't go quite so far back in
Flagstaff history as Director Davis
can, as I made my first stop here a
year ego. I have been here several
times since, with Lees Ferry as my
objective. I represent a group of
people that isfcgiving the Colorado riv
er a great deal of study. The proj
ect should be developed, either by a
private concern, or by the govern
ment We all agree that the river
must be developed by some agency.
This trip has been a pleasant one, and
it has been carried out almost precise
ly to the minute in regard to schedule.
We had no sickness on the trip, and
there were no 'grouches' in the bunch.
Thu only objection some of us had is
that northern Aiizona and Utah fur
nish poison oak."
"I don't know a blooming thing
noout 'power,' but 1 want to assme
you that if there is nnythipg that I
can do that will help forward the
Colorado river development, I will do
it. I visited the town of Flagstaff in
1914, and so many improvements have
been made that I hardly recognized
the place when 1 got here yesterday.
It certainly seems good to come back
"Colonel Birdseye knows a great
deal more about 'power than he pre
tends to know. I know, because he
pulled my boat off the rocks, when no
once else could do it
"Flagstaff strikes me as being one
of the most interesting places I ever
visited, and has the greatest possibil
ities of any city I know of."
"Utah seems to be separated from
this state by a wilderness of rock,
and for that reason we never get
down to this part of the country. Da-
vis told about what he would like to
see done with the Colorado. He said
that power should be developed. I
want to know how it is going to be
developed without a railroad to do it
I am with the Union Pacific, and
want to help do what should be done
to solve this problem. I was surpris
ed to see what a beautiful country you
have here, south of the river, and the
town of Flagstaff, with its paving,
surprised me still more."
Mr. Rice said:
"In connection with the work of de
velopment of the Colorado river, one
of the fundamental things needed is
an accurate knowledge of the flow of
"The federal power commission
realizes that we must have more in
formation about the river, and at
different points along its course, and
the importance of guaging stations at
the Grand Cannon, Topoc and Lees
"The people in the southern part
of the state are intensely interested
in the investigations being made in
this vicinity, and at Boulder Canyon,
and in getting more and cheaper pow
er." Mr. La Rue told about the trip.
From Ritchfield, Utah, they traveled
100 miles by auto, making the rest of
the way in three days, with two four
horse wagons. Hall's Crossing was
reached on the night of September 7.
They started down the river the next
day in power boats. The dam sites
were investigated that were looked
over by topographical survey men
last summer. Four possible dam sites
On September 12 they laid off and
took a side trip to Rainbow bridge.
They then went to the Crossing of
the Fathers, and then to Warm Creek.
A dam can be built there. Lee's Fer
dy dam site number two was also con
sidered. On the 16th they reached
Lee's Ferry, and climbed out on the
Mr. La Rue showed a big map of
the proposed Lee's Ferry dam site, the
dam to be built on one side of the
horseshoe, with a tunnel spillway 2500
feet long at right angles to connect
with the other side of the horseshoe
at the ferry. The cost of the dam
can not be determined until depth to
bed rock, which he estimates at 80
feet, is shown by diamond drilling.
Bed rock may not be more than 30
feet down, he said. He said the flats
at the feriy were admirable for con
struction camps, and that if the dam
is built there three or four thousand
people will have to be housed there.
To hold 6,000,000 acre feet of water
the dam would have to be 400 feet
Mr. Stabler: "It is hard to realize
the power of the Colorado river. The
Columbia and Niagara rivers are the
only ones in this country that can be
compared with it. A big dam will
help regulate the flow and floods.
There is no doubt that the great dam
will be built some day, as the power
will be needed. Transportation for
both Arizona and Utah will benefit,
as a 200-mile lake will be formed
above the dam."
One of the uarty said to a repre
sentative of The Sun shortly after
the meeting that he believes official
opinion, at first mainly favoring the
Boulder Canyon site, is veering to
ward the Lee's Ferry site, because of
tne ract that depth to bed-rock at
Boulder Canyon is 147 feet. That
point as a dam-site, he said, was now
pretty much out of it and would un
doubtedly be discarded if the diamond
drills substantiate Mr. La Rue's be
lief that bed-rock at Leo's Ferry is
not more than 80 feet down.

President Koch announced that Ro-
tarian George T. Hernngton would
that afternoon receive through Ro
tarian Jack Johnson of Phoenix flow
ers from the Flagstaff club and Fred
Breen was chosen to send a telegram
of greetings from the club to George,
and did, as follows:
"Dear George, the heart of every
Rote is with you in your trouble and
we are doing every possible thing to
hold Dr. Mart here to afford you ev
ery possible chance."
In brief discussion of the Oak Creek
road project, E. G. Miller, forest su
pervisor, said the forest people were
heartily in favor of the road ant he
felt sure would soon help with funds.
President Koch announced that be
cause of the illness of Mr. Herring
ton, who was to have been chairman
of the ladies' night and Boy Scout
program, that was to have taken place
that night, and also because Scout Ex
ecutive Warner had been called to
Redlands, California, by the illness of
his mother, the meeting would be
held next Thursday night, at 7 o'clock,
when the ladies and Boy Scouts will
be guests, the program will be fur

Babbitt, in honor of little Kay, will
be chairman. Holdinir the meeting on
Thursday night instead of Tuesday is
to let the local officers of the club at

j-prpntlv said: "I thought I had hunt
ed out the wonders of this section of
the country pretty thoroughly during
the thirty years or more I have lived
here, but in touring around on the
way home from the famous Hopi In
dian snake dance ceremonial last
month, I came to Coal Canyon, a
canyon I had never head of before.
It was one of the most beautiful
things in the way of vivid coloring I
had ever seen and just as much worth
while as the Grand Canyon. Back
east a canyon of Coal Canyon's splen
dor would have been of world-wide
fame years ago, but out here in our
vast new country after living here
all these years, I never heard of the
place before,'' declared Mr. Riordan.
