U. S. Attorney Makes Trip
from Flagstaff in His
New Car and Learns
Something About AVhat
They Call Roads
The prospectively grand smooth
boulevard that runs north and con
nects Phoenix with Prescott is a
Miame. If the streak of washed out,
rutty, high-centered dirt that they
call the road to Wiekenburg were
not capable of being made a splendi-d
highway, it would not be half so bail.
But the utter waste of good ma
terial strung along tiie assorted miles
between the capital of Arizona, and
it biggest city and the land of the
unfevered vacationer acquired sun
dry goats as is proven by the fol
lowing: "In coming from Prescott and
Flagstaff by automobile," said Unit
ed States Attorney Tom Flynn yes
terday, "I experienced a sensation
of mean disappointment. 1 slid
quietly off the magnificent roads of
Yavapai and Coconino counties onto
that wretched piece of trail between
Wiekenburg and Phoenix, and was
treated to one of the worst bits of
wave riding I have ever had.
"It would not have impressed me
so badly had I not just left the fine
boulevards of the north As far as
Wiekenburg the mad is pretty fine.
But below that place, it's awful. But
the worst part of it is that the ex
penditure of very little money and
labor would make a good road of
the miserable trail. A little grading
Would smooth it, and a few furrows
judiciously plowed on the upper tude
would prevent the rain water wash
ing great sags through it. I cer
tainly hope that Maricopa county
will come alive to this deficiency
and have that road prepared for the
summer travel."
Flynn came down with Ed Babbitt
and Earl Slypher, both of Flagstaff.
They came in the Hup which Flynn
has just acquired by purchase from
the Babbitt company, and Ed Bab
bitt was teaching him to manipulate
it through the mountains. Slypher

Motorbike endurance runs will pro

plus the road races for next fall will

to be done. Not too well equipped

Nobody can say that the aviation
game is still in the vaudeville stage.
An exchange prints a photograph of
an aviator doing a sensational tail-for-niost
dip. and explains that the birdmen
of now are pulling these perilous stunts
merely that they may gain practice in
handling their machines in the event
of accident. Now, to find oneself sud
denly pitched upside down in an aero
plane must bCj a terrible experience;
but to deliberately turn over, fly up
side down, and cut loops in the circum
ambient is merely pleasant novelty.
The practice of flying upside down,
sideways, ovi r and over, and in other
hair raising manners, must be doing
something to increase the safety of
flight. In the few months since Pe
gouil first started looping the loKp,
there has been a minimum of fatalities.
When the aviator is able to turn his
machine wrong side out and fly with
it in sections in the event of accident
then the transcontinental and trans
oceanic flights will be merely a matter of
stocking up with sufficient gasoline and
oil to keep the engines running. The
! Curtiss factory is going to put a hydro
j aeroplane at the America-Europe flight
j If George Hageman does not take
care, he will do something which will
j malic him out an exaggerator. We are
i not .-lire that there is such a thing as
j an exagerator, but if the Franklin
j man keeps on putting road-miles in the
! gasoline he uses, he will accomplish a
test that will cause people to shake
i their heads. He has had Harold Welles
I doing :il miles per gallon, and since
word was received that the dealer in
1 Koknk or Conshohocken did 47, the
local driver has been putting on the
j yards every day. The final test occurs
I on Friday morning.
We had hoped that this small but in
significant department would escape
the notice of the stereotyped Public
Vox Bono Deii, or whatever Old Sub
scriber happens to think most fitting
for his pen name when he communi
cates with ire and a stub pen. But we
had scarcely got nicely placed in our
regular writing position when it was
called to our attention "To the Sport
Editor. Sir" wise that we had pub
lished an indiscretion in the form of a
story of a, trey of boxing matches in
Ray. "You ought to know, if you do
not. that boxing is tabu in Arizona.
Why, therefore, do you insist on play
ing up this brutal sport?" Question re
mains unanswered. 'Twill continue so,

To think that a large and reliable daily
should do such a thing. Someone see
ing a similarity between (he styles of
