111 P. II. H. S. THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 19, 1914 jeiSPHl SEATS HEW COLUMBIA I GOING QUICKLY OPENS TONIGHT Exhibitions of Domestic Science and Mechanical Art Departments Open to Relatives and Friends of Students at School The annual visiting day of the art. the domestic art and science, the j commercial and the mechanical arts departments of the Phoenix High School will be held on Wednesday afternoon from 3 : 00 to 6:00 at the high school. While visitors are wel comed on any day of the year and latrons are urged to call at any and all times, on"this particular day, an especial effort is made to have those interested in the industrial side of modern education to come to the high school and see for themselves just what is being done. These com paratively new branches in modern secondary education have taken a wonderfully stronghold in schools all over the world and all are urged to come and see that Phoenix is making an honest effort to keep abreast of the times. The art department is under the able direction of Miss Cordelia He liin. Its exhibit will be seen in room 121 of the domestic science and arts building. Miss McLain is one of the very ablest teachers of art in the west, and is a recognized author ity in her line of work, having had charge of classes of teachers at a number of state institutes in the past. Miss Worthy Johnson and Mis Camilla Franklin have the domestic science and art and their exhibit will be on the first floor of that build ing. Miss Johnson is a graduate of Columbia university where she spe cialized in the above-named line of work, and few schools anywhere can boast of a teacher better qualified by temperament and training than can Phoenix High in Miss Johnson. Miss Franklin hails from North Dakota and springs from an illustrious line of prominent educators, her father being the present state superinten dent of public instruction of that state. The exhibit of the commercial de partment on the second floor of the "old building" will be well worth vis iting. During the afternoon there will be a number of speed tests by the present state champions in shorthand and typewriting and cups and medals won by various teams will be on display, together with specimens of the work done in this and previous years. Professor Mi chael, ably assisted by Mrs. Jay and Mr. Fulton, are instructors in this department. They are too well known and established in their repu tations here to need any introduc tion to patrons of the Phoenix High. The exhibit of the mechanical arts department will be mainly in the temporary quarters across the canal to the north of the commercial build ing, though owing to lack of room a number of pieces will be placed in other buildings. This is the last of the industrial departments to be es tablished here, being only in its sec ond year, but it has already outgrown its present quarters in the "tin shop across the canal." While a number of the students have had benchwork in the grades, this is new to a ma- jority of them as is the handling of Round Trip Excursion Fares Quite Large Number of Church Members Availed Themselves of Opportun ity to Buy Tickets for Benefit of Church The sale of seats to the Uispham concert scheduled for the 26th at the Elks' theatre was very satisfac- tory today, anil quite a substantial revenue was derived by the churches that took an interest in the twenty per cent donated by Mr. Redewill on today's sales. David Bispham, America's greatest baritone and Metropolitan Opera House artist, has announced his in tentions of giving one of his very best performances in Phoenix. Throughout his present tour he has been working hard keeping up his many dates (Bispham fills nearly twice as many dates as any other artist) and the result is that he ar rived in San Francisco quite tired. But the two following weeks he took easy, and now his manager states that the artist is in the very pink of condition, and those who are fortunate enough to arrange to at tend the concert on the 2t!th will hear a voice which even the Metropolitan Opera House scarcely hears owing to the overworking of all their artists. There are still a good supply of the cheaper seats and some of the good ones left, but it will be wise not to wait until the last minute. Some of the out-o-town people are sending in orders for tickets in bunches and if this keeps up very long the entire house will be sold out before the ap pointed time, a week from tonight. o YUMA COUNTY NEEDS TWO COUNTY JAILS Yuma county is so situated from the standpoint of railroads and dis tance that two jails are necessary, one regular county jail at Yuma proper and the other a branch jail woodworking machinery to all. Nevertheless, the boys have made a rather good showing and some fairly creditable prices have been turned out. Mr. P. I. Turner, who has charge of this work, is a gradu ate of the state university at Tucson and has had a number of years of experience in trade schools and high schools in California. He sends out an especially urgent invitation to patrons to visit the shop that, among other things, they may see and recog nize its present limitations and need of larger quarters and better equip ment. At present only woodwork is afforded, whereas there is a need of, and a growing demand for forge work and machine shop practice, but for which at) present there are no facilities. The exhibit in all the department is free to all and members of pleas- ant-faced young people will be on hands to escort visitors through and to answer questions. The work is theirs and they are modestly proud of their achievements and cordially urge patrons and friends to come.

SEE AGENTS Arizona Eastern Southern Pacific (EXPOSITION LINES 1915) The Columbia theater opens its doors to the public for the first time this evening. It claims for Itself the name of Phoenix's newest and best playhouse, and from the amount of work that has been done on the build ing the claim will in all probability be good and if not be made good be fore the present active and energetic management is through with its activ ities. The construction of this mod el house has been made in almost rec ord time. From the wrecking of the building in late January last until the opening in May is quite a stunt. Three months and a half is not so ;' long when the fact is taken Into con- : sideration that "Safety First" has ' been the motto under which the house has been constructed. ' The aisles are wide and the seats far apart that there is none of the ! cramped, jammed in feeling. A fire- ; proof curtain as an additional security ! and plenty of exits make the place I an ideal one. So much has already been said about the nature of the opening per formance that it is generally taken for granted that the show tonight will be really worth while and vaude ville quite in the advance of anything that has been essayed by any Arizona theater up to this date. Four big acts, one of them an Orpheum headline!', three reels of first-run exclusive pic tures and a ladies' orchestra, is just a little bit of all right. The doors open at 7:00 and the first show is at 7:15 with the second show at 9:00. at Parker. The occasion for this is the simple fact that Yuma and Par ker are so located that every prison er has to be taken to the county seat from Parker by way of Phoenix, even though the man is to serve but a short term on a justice of the peace sentence. opportunities. That's all. There's no The expense involved in this work has been such as to become a great item with the taxpayers of Yuma county and finally the board of su pervisors decided to put in a blanch j::il at Parker. F. K. Klliott, chair man of the Yuma county board, was in the city yesterday en route tu Parker, where he goes to select the site for the branch jail. POPULAR ENGINEER SUCCUMBS TO ILLNESS Horace A. Cook Passes Away at South Central Avenue Home. Horace A. Cook, one of the best known structural engineers in the southwest, and for some time a mem ber of the firm of Streitz, Cook fc j Smart, passed away at his home on South Central evenue, .south of the bridge, on Sunday evening, after an illness of several weeks. Arrange ments have been perfected for the funeral to be held this morning at 10 o'clock, from the Mohn, Driscoll & Mans undertaking chapel. His wid ow, a daughter and two brothers, Ray E. Cook, of this city, and C. R. Cook, now in Alaska, but formerly a resi dent of this city, survive. It was in 1909 that Horace Cook came to Phoenix. He immediately gained recognition, not only as a ca pable engineer, but as a man of sterling integrity and friend-making qualities. In and about Phoenix he will be remembered by the general public through his efficient supervis ion of the paving of the Central av enue bride, as well as of the greater part of the street paving in this city. His plans were those accepted for the recently completed Pratt-C.ilbert build ing and for the later buildings erected as extensions of the Northern Normal school at Flagstaff. Mr. Cook was a graduate of the Valparaiso and Purdue universities and an associate member of the So ciety of Civil Engineers. He was prominent in Masonic circles and a member of the Lafayette Lodge No. 123, of Lafayette, Ind. The news or his death came to his friends yester day as a distinct shock.
