The custom' of, observing Ar bor Day has become an- estab lished and benefi cent practice among our people, tending as it does, to increase the beauty of our surroundings and the "earn ing power of our unused land. The abundance of sunshine which we enjoy can be employ ed advantageously in tree grow ing, which . is always, gainful, whether continued to - one or more trees set out to beautify and shade the home, or carried to a larger extent to the end that our rugged hills may be re7 forested.- It is of particular importance that advantage be taken of this day to instruct the pupils of our public and private schools in silviculture and the beneficent results of forestation. The day should be marked by the planting of trees on school grounds and in school gardens in order that the younger gen eration may be imbued with a -realization of the great values both tangible and intangible, which trees alone possess for mankind. In accordance, therefore, with the mandate continued in our statutes and with the earn est hope that . the day may be spent in the planting and culti vation of trees which -will' ma terially add to the beauty of our State and will be a patriotic contribution to the pleasure and welfare of future generat ions, I, THOMAS E.

' ' GORDON SMITH CLEARED : OF CHARGE OF THEFT At the request of 4 Marshall Bums, Julge J: E. Jones " and County Attorney Gold came down from" Flagstaff Tuesday, to investigate a charge of theft made against Gordon Smith. W. H.T Knowlton charged ' Gor 'd on with taking a lock arid some tools froiri ' Knowlton 's black smith shop. ; Conviction on this charge would ' have ' sent Gordon to the State- Industrial School" to serve his suspended sentence of three years. ' "' After going thoroughly into the case Judge Jones decided that there was insufficient . evi dence to prove "him guilty ' and thee harge was dismissed; - At the request of the Judge, deputy sheriff Campbell went down to Mr. Smith's home to look for two ' Forest " Service tires stolen f oni" a Government truck several months ago. It had been rumored that Gordon had taken these. The missing tires were not found 'on the truck nor on the premises. Thj Judge was much relieved to learn this as it left Gordon clear of this offense. Mr. and Mrs. D. D. Sriiith par ents of Gordon, have requested that the' News make' the state ment that Gordon did not plead guilty to all of the offenses enumerated in the News of last week as being charged against the boys. It was not the in tention of the News to convey the idea that each of the three bovs participated in each of the different offenses but some of the News readers took the ar ticle to mean as much. Gordon disclaims having had a part in stealing any money or guns. We are glad to put this point clear before News readers. FOR SALE, CHEAP: One Fairbanks-Morse 6 II. P. gas engine, complete.
