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
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
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
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
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
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.

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,

work and machine shop practice, but

to answer questions. The work is
theirs and they are modestly proud
of their achievements and cordially

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

seat from Parker by way of Phoenix,
even though the man is to serve but

peace sentence.

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

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.
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.
Fifty Members of Federated Brother
hood Meet on Y. M. C. A. Roof
Garden to Plan Big Things
Bigger and better churches, greater
cooperation and teamplay, more inter
est in religion and allied works, are
the purposes of an organization effect
last night in plan by members or the
Federated Brotherhood of the Phoenix
churches. It was at a roof garden so
cial on the tip top of the Young Men's
Christian Association that the meeting
was held. Over fifty delegates at
tended it.
Dr. W. W. Wilkinson, president of
the Federated Brotherhood presided.
After the viands had been made hut
memories, the business proceeded with
rapidity and directness.
After a snappy discussion of the
topic, the meeting elected to set Mon
day night June 1 as the date for the
organization meeting. At that time
there will be three delegates from ev
ery church organization, young men,
young women and older people. The
more effective working organization, to
be made possible through the new as
pociation, is expected to create a new
regard for churchly things in Phoenix,
and to promote the higher cooperation
of church organizations.
