WORKING IN FRANCE
1DERTHE K. OF C.
Nogales, Arizona, is justly proud of
the record the Rev. George C. Van
Goettheim, formerly parish priest in
the Sacred Heart parish, has made and
is making in France. The. former
priest of Sacred Heart parish went to
France over a year ago to engage in
Knights of Columbus work at the
front and he has been in the midst
of things ever since, ministering to
the needs of the living and the suffer
ing of the injured. Father Goett
heim is one of the mercy workers whc
is in such demand that he has been
carried from post to post 'in airplanes
to aid him in doing more of the work
in which he is proving so valuable.
In the year he has been in France
the good father has aided, in the erec
tion and dedication of not less than
fifteen Knights of Columbus halls and
his work in the front line benches has
shown him a man of great fortitude
and bravery. e is ranked as one of
the most enthusiastic workers for the
cause of democracy in France.
Father Goettheim's work for the
coming year will be supported through
the United War Work Campaign drive
of November 11-18. The National
Catholic War Council-Knights of Col
umbus organiztaion is an intergal part
of that great mercy campaign.

feated Jeff D. Adams for sheriff of
Maricopa county at last Tuesday's el
ection. Adams was handicapped by
the fact that he had obtained exemp
tion for a son of military age, or so it
was charged. He was formerly one
of the most popular men in that coun
ty, vieing with Carl.Hayden in the es
teem of the people.
TO THE PUBLIC:
Thank you most heartily for re-election
at a time when active campaigning on my
part was quite impossible.
This renewed expression of your con
fidence and good-will actuates and inspires
me to merit it even more in future.
Also, CRITICISM, in a spirit of friend
ly frankness will be appreciated by me, as
insurance against misunderstanding. I
can serve you better if YOU will seasonably
point out to ME the blunders" inat I may
make or the duties unperformed.'
Laying aside differences.- let us be
frank and co-operate for the general good.
You shall have my best efforts in all mat
. ters coming within the scope of this office.
' Cordially yours-,

-While thanking you all for the
loyal support given at the Polls,
I also assure you a just and fair
administration of the office to
which you have elected me.

We Give You a Chance-
The modern power laundry is a godsend to the housewife. There
is perhaps no other modern improvement so directly helpful to the
housewife. It lifts a heavy load from her shoulders, and gives her
release from a habit that had become a weekly Sentence to so many
days of drudgery.
Here's your chance to eliminate the wash day from your weekly
program, and practice true economy in so doing. Send your wash
to us. Our Semi-Finished Department will wash all your clothes,
dry them, and iron the flat work for only 50c per dozen. This wjel
can do on account of the immense volume we handle.
Try us this next week.

WORK STARTED ON
The state engineer has put a large
force of men to work on the grade of
the Prescott-Jerome road, the short
line that is to connect the two cities.
The New highway will be about 34
miles long and will traverse the moun
tains on a good grade. The old road
by way of Clarkdale is nearly 70 miles
in length, much of which is only a
cow-trail. The two towns should have
been connected lojig ago, as it will be
for the mutual interest of each to have
greater intercourse with each other.
The 'cost of the road is partly to be
borne by the state and part by the
county of Yavapai.
George J. Stoneman, one of the best
known attorneys in the state, has en
tered the judge advocate general's of
fice and will leave Phoenix for one of
the army camps to take up his new
duties. Mr. Stoneman has many
warm .personal friends in this part of
the state who will wish him all man
ner of success.
EXPECTED THAT OLD TRAILS
FIRST NATIONAL HIGHWAY
That there will be three great trans
continental highways built across. the
American continent by the federal
government and that the National Old
Trails route will be the first one of
the three, is the prediction of Barney
Oldfield, who passed through King
man with his wife, last week. Barney
was just returning from the east to
the coast over the Old Trails route
and was of the opinion from what he
knew of the road conditions that this
would be the most accessable route
for all-the-year travel and the govern
ment would be sure to build it, either
with or without the aid of the var
ious states through which it ran The
greater part of the roadway would be
concrete, but there would be much
that could be built with rock and other
lasting materials. The Old Trails is
a shorter route and is less dangerous
for the ordinary traveler. It is well
watered, the tourist has access to the
railroad and jother aids also every few
miles along the rote, as well as having
many scenic places to visit throughout
the southwest. It is open to late in
the winter, when every other route
across the country is closed by reason
of snows and blizzards. It is free
from the torrid heat of the more
southerly route, and is in fact a route
over which the average tourist would
wish to drive.
The Miner has always advocated the
building of this highway, and the
writer was one of the many citizens
of the county who took part in' the
convention at Kansas City that fixed
the westerly routing of the National
Old Trails Road this' way. It was
Mohave county people who enlisted all
the people along the route in the build
ing of the road to its present state
of usefulness, and it has been the be
lief of .all our people that sooner or
later the federal government would
take the matter up and construct a
lasting highway through this section
of Arizona. Our people recognize the
fact that other sections of the country
have the call on the government for
highways and we believe that the
building of many are nfecessary to the
development of the" west and will in
time be built, but the success of one
will surely lead to the building of
others and the first one should be
along the most feasable of the many
routes projected. From every point
of view we have the best route be
tween the line of Canada and Mexico,
and the government survey, we are
sure will justify our prediction.
