THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 18, 1914 MILLER TELLS Hi KB DID IT Driver of .Winning " Race Car in El Paso-Phoenix Grind Entertains Friends : at Banquet and Receives Much Congratulation How they did it was discussed by llugh Miller and Ed Orr in the lit tle dinner given to the friends and Assistants of the two Phoenix boys who brought home the winning Pope Hartford in the El Paso-Phoenix road race last week. At a little af ter eight, the bunch thirty-three in all gathered around one of Sing's lig tables and proceeded to organize for the session. Organizing' consisted in consuming some excellent food, jirovided by C. A. Orr, superintendent f the garage of McArthur brothers, but better known to, fame as the daddy of the mechanician who brought in the victorious car. Miller modestly attributed his vic tory to the car. It was an excel lently prepared car, he said, and he knew that every man in the big force employed by McArthur brothers, had taken a keen personal interest in every nit and bolt the car possessed. In preparing the car for the race, al! the work was not done by the two drivers. Every man on the force, willingly contributed his ser vices. One man made the forgings and he was proud to Bay they held. Another saw to the valves, and "he, too, felt he had contributed some what of personal effort to the proud showing the car made. And so on all the way down to the 'boy who -was tickled to say he had washed . the car! Warren and Charles McArthur, owners of the garage, explained the new system of service the symbol of which is the orange circle. It Is to be a statewide organization of garages, service to be made uniform, and work to be done on a coupon basis, reducing it practically to a cash transaction. The young pro prietors hope some day to see the system in vogue along every trans continental route starting with the Borderland. Among the interesting things brought out last night was the fact that there are three Phoenix race drivers who are determined to enter tho El Paso to San Diego road race. They are Hugh Miller, Bill Trcmaine and Jack Smith. Among those present last night were: Warren and Charles McArthur, C.

He might have gone a bit further and said that most of the time luck was merely good or bad management according to wether luck seems to be for or against you, and that as the man at the wheel is the manager throughout the race, a wise driver is about 80 per cent respon sible for victory. A case in point is Hugh Miller, who won the EI Paso-Phoenix race drivifig a Pope Hartford car. In talking over the race, J. E. Balsley, Phoenix district sales manager for the Standard Oil company said: "Hugh must have had excellent luck judging from the man ner in which he negotiated the course. m WE Jill MEETING Governors and Councilinen AVill Confer "With Judge Kins in Morning Session J' rida y Public in Afternoon Meeting There will be a special joint meet ing of the governors and council ofj the water users Friday morning to meet with Judge Will It. King, chief counsel ' of the reclamation commis sion. The meeting was announced upon the "arrival of the distinguished legal light yesterday, and his agree ment to take up certain weighty pro ject matters by the open conference method. In the afternoon, starting at one o'clock, the same topics will be ex- But I know he never trusted to luck for one" moment. Not Hugh. He was a' wise driver.- His 'luck' so-called was good management from beginning to end. of rourse this included his select - ine T?H V'rown uilin and V.i'ntnf oil. Hugh knew that to win he had to have power every foot of the way. No 'missins-:ot-'stalling' for him. And' he knew that -that power would all be i delivered at the rear axle if his oil was ! right. It would be hard to convince j me that Hugh Miller's victory and his smashing of last year's record was 60 ' per cent luck." plained to the general public, at a second meeting to be held in the farmers' room in the basement of the ater Users' building. During his brief stay in the valley, Judge King will see as much of the project work as possible. Today, he will be convoyed to all parts of the project by Engineers Hanna and Fitch. With the arrival of the legal head of the commission, every man now belonging to that body has now been the guest of the Salt River project. First there was Director Newell, loiter came Comptroller Ryan. Chief Engineer Arthur P. Davis and Chief of Irrigation Superintendent I. D. O'Donnell arrived together. o WELCH AS AN "ADDER" When Harry Welch answered a telegram from the Las Angeles Ad club, stating that he had gained Col. McClure's consent to address the Angelenos at their luncheon, he found he had four words left to make up the fifty in the night letter. So after the statement that the distinguished visitor was visiting the Roosevelt dam, Welch put "world's finest irrigation project." The little in sert came in for a fine editorial men tion in the latest edition of the "Ad club Crier", the official publication of the live wires of Los Angeles publiicly work. DESIGNS 1 0 E ARTILLERY Armory Sergeant H. R. Northover is the designer of the Maxim rapid firing guns mounted on motorcycles which are now being used by the Ninetieth regiment of the Canadian militia, now stationed at Fort Os borne barracks, Winnipeg. This re giment is widely known through the Dominion for its fighting record since its organization, and it is therefore fitting that it should be the first to use the motorcycle mounted artillery. This outfit can travel at four miles an hour, the us ual infantry pace, or when dispatch ed to distant points, can attain a speed of forty miles an hour. The motorcycle artillery can be driven through plowed fields and 'over the roughest kind of ground. It doesn't require the care that a horse does in the field, and lessens to a great extent the problem of sanita tion on the battlefield, as it requires imany men to follow the army and dispose of the bodies of horses which have fallen in battle. The chief ad vantage, however, of the motorcycle I gun is its superior speed, compared with other artillery and the rapidity with which it can be mobilized where needed for effective action.
