TEMPK, Dec. 21 Track rules for the season of the spring of 1913 were adopted Saturday afternoon at the Tempe meet ins of the members of the Valley Interscholastic Athletic league and the length of the season decided upon. One of the most im portant 'ridings is one which pro hibits graduate.-:, who are taking ex tra work to take part in any of the interschool athletic meets. This rule will shut out a number of men who have been planning to be in the meets. The final meet was fixed for February 1. 1913, to be pulled off at the fair grounds at Phoenix in the afternoon of the above mention- eel date. A committee was ted to draw up a baseball appoint -schedule for the schools. The meeting was called together in the high school building. Prof. Michael of the Phoenix high, K. P. Venue of the Indian school. Robe of the Mesa high. Prof. Jennings of Tempe high and John Spikes of the normal were present. The first de cision reached was that regarding the closing of the Salt river valley track season. The matter of a baseball season was then taken up and it was agreed to schedule each team for eight games. The baseball sea sen will follow immediately on the heels of the track year. When th fiist meet will occur is yet unde cided. Track will reign all through January with dual meets at inter vals between the two Tempe schools and Phoenix and Mesa. The Indians following their established custom will not enter until the finals come around. Arrangements were concluded for ihe 'meet that will end the sea son, a meet in which the victors at all previous contests will be admit ted. This is the meet that will hap pen on February 1. The state fair grounds ' in Phoenix will be used to stage the athletic special arrangements with the railroad to congvess and will be made convey south- skiers to and from the meet. The most startling rule that has been adopted in some time, yet one which is conceded should have been passed long ago is that restricting the eligible entrants to undergrad uates of the institution for which they contend. It is said here Phoe nix high will suffer most from the enforcement of the new mile, but none of the schools will be very badly off by its effect. A committee composed of Jennings and Srdkes will draw up the sched ule for the valley baseball series. It is the intention of the committee to arrange that each team shall play each other team two game. O Spanish orchestra this afternoon at Davidson's Cash Store.

UNDERGROUND WATER SUPPLY Can Be Developed Through Medium of Artesian Wells. Many Choice Tracts Are Being Ra pidly Filed On. The State Land Commission at the time of its appointment was supposed to have primarily to do with the school land selection within the state, but the amount of public lands within the state is also large and of neces sity needs looking after. The public lands of the state is not confined to one locality any more than is the school lands, and often in locating school land it became necessary for the commission to have a great deal to do with the general public land. In reference to this condition, the State Land Commission recently, said : "Co-jointly with the work of ex amining the school lands in the dis tricts visited the commissioner is not only examining the unappropriated public lands which are thus traversed, with a view to recommendations for selections in satisfaction of the Con gressional Grants, but through the .search of official and private records of water appropriations, surveys and engineering reports, as well as from other sources, is gleaned varied and valuable information which it is ex pected will lead to the making of the ehioeest possible selections. "While the impression seems to quite generally prevail that practi cally all of Arizona's lands suscepti ble of irrigation lie within the limits of the few projects already establish ed and a very few contemplated en terprises which are well known to. the public, the ' commission, as a result of its thus far immature and incom plete investigations, holds a widely different view. "The commission is convinced that within the next few years the im pounding and development of water, by means of surface and underground dans, of r'eserviors and canals and through the medium of artesian and other wells, will work the reclamation of millions of acres of fertile lands now regarded as hopeless desert wastes. So urgt nt is the ever-westward pressing demand, and so real is the need, for farms, it cannot be doubted that while land is land the last dream-view of a promised em pire will be some hardy explorer followed to its end, and the last re sources of the always resourceful and never-tiring promoter will be ex- hausted,- the eering skill ; its bottom, an erstwhile last measure of engin md ingenuity drained to to bring this vision of wilderness dotted with prosperous homes to a zation. The commission happy reali is searching for the places where this dream will most likely and earliest come true, and for the other places where a lit tle later but full'as likely since .the possibility of reclamation approxi mates certainty it will be brought to pass. "Desiring to be equipped with at least a primary knowledge of the en tire state, es a basis for the more accurate determination of value which comes only through comparison the commission is not as yet prepared to make any specific recommendations for grant selections, though several important areas are being considered. Although the occasion for all possible haste in this matert is realized and with this realization the work is being pushed forward with consistent rapidity, it is confidently believed that, the best results can 1' obtained only by the exercise .of reasonable caution and moture judgment, based upon actual and careful investigation. "As shown by the United States Land Office records, and by the com missioner's observations in the field, many choice small tracts are being filed and , settled upon by individual homeseeker's and speculators, while the agents of the owners of lieu land scripts are actively gobbling such sur veyed areas, generally insignifteent in size, as seem most desirable, but the great bodies of unreclaimed lands which to the minds of the commis sioners offer the chief opportunites for development remain comparatively untouched. The number of inquiries "being received by the commission, however, from companies, corpora- tions and formation ities and which by might be individuals, requesting m- as to irrigational possibil descriptions of large areas the employment of capital made productive, give evi the activity which may be deuce of looked for in the near future, while frequent applications for particulars concerning the state's land reclama tion laws, such as the Carey act, and the district irrigation law. indi cate that numerous definite and spe cific enterprises are being projected. Home-seekers in large numbers are also looking toward Arizona as shown by the commissioner's daily mail, ask ing for particulars regarding the lease or purchase of state and school lands, arid in' many instances, doubtless bas ed upon the assumption that included in the duties of the commission are those of an immigration board, re questing data relative to the purchase of private lands. These letters are carefully answered, and many refer red to the various publicity and .de velopment boards throughout the slate: ' " EDUCATIONAL FACTOR EN LIFE OF COMTY I 0 Splendid Work of Arizona School of Music Causes Favorable Comment. Among1 ihe forces that are tending for a higner culture in Pnoenix, as well as laying the foundation for mak ing Phoenix a musical and artistic cen ter, is the Arizona School of Music, which occupies a handsome building on North Center street.
