Washington Street IN THE OLD NEW YORK STORE BUILDING The record breaking Rotary club I meeting was held yesterday at noon at the shops of the Arizona Eastern railway, where tiie members of the ' club were in reality the guests of 0. M. Scott, superintendent of the Phoenix division of that system, who transported the club in a body in a solid steel train to the shops and who assisted the chairman of the meeting, E, Power Conway, in every possible way to make It the record breaking success that it was. No less than ninety-two members and guests sat down to the comfortably arranged tables in the lecture room of the large general office building, among whom were a number of prominent men from in and outside the eity. The tables whereon the luncheon was served were decorated with Arizona, beauty roses which were raid against the snow white table cloths and were1 thus set off in a most "Approving manner. Superintendent Scott was down on the program for a service talk, but after a few preliminary remarks led the way for the entire crowd through the shops and through the office building explaining things of interest as he went. The whole club congratulated and thanked Mr. Scott for his efforts in making the affair a success. As a change from the usual order, Chairman Conway announced that each Rotarian in answering roil call would state his place of birth, his business and the number of years he had made Phoenix home. This was checked and the following in teresting data was compiled on the membership of the Rotary; by states and countries: Missouri, S; Cali fornia, 2: Wisconsin, 2; Ohio, 4; New York, 3; Nebraska, 2; Indiana, 3: England, 4; Iowa. 7; Canada, 1; Photo bf Wilbur W.

Louisiana, Kentucky, one each. Ar thur Luhrs received quite a reception when he announced himself as an Arizonlan by birth, the only one present. D. A. Donofrio, the Cactus King, delivered one of the gems In the form of a service talk, that has yet been heard. He detailed his exjieri ences in becoming the cactus king in such a witty humorous way that he kept the crowd roaring with laughter during the entire time. The large list of guests who were present were announced and each received a salvo of applause. Capt. J. L. P.. Alexan der was chosen as spokesman for the guests, a position he filled with his usual ability. The following j guests were present: City Manager W. A. Parish, Mayor Geo. U. Young, Building Inspector Herbert Mann, Earl Parker, City Recorder Prank Thomas, Charles Donofrio, C. M. Scott, A. R. Gatter, R. P. Davie, C. H. Culver, Corporation Commissioner A. V. Cole, Water Su perintendent Avery Thompson, P. H. Ensign, Jay Alkire, A. J. Halton, A. B. Minor, Geo. Christy, Geo. S. Fos ter, Dr. O. E. Plath, L. G. Stevens, Joseph Cope, A. Q. Tucker of Lon don, Eng.; Thos. J. Prescott, S. H. Robertson and. George Game. W.; W. Edwards of the Wakelln Grocery, a Welchman by birth, created much humorous comment by appearing with his "luggage" In or der to properly go to the "excursion" into the country. His picture with his trunk is published herewith. E. A. Trincano, "hot air artist," came very nearly breaking up matters by insisting on beating his way. He got there all right. "I note from your program that I am billed to deliver an address on railroad "Service." When this was first broached to me, I believe I stated that ,one could hardly do the subject justice in n short talk, as we would hardly get out of the side track and by the first switch. Someone happily suggested, the suggestion I am glad to say being immediately adopted, that the Rotary club and their guests, meet in this in stance, at the. Arizona Eastern shoDS the idea being, that this would enable us to give a practical illustration, not exactly ofwliat the common acceptance of the term "Service" means, but of some of the more important items that go to make up the foundation of "Ser vice". I believe I am safe in saying that of the hundred or more represen tative citizens assembled here today, there are not more than half a dozen who have before honored us with a visit to our plant: and it is therefore especially gratifying to have all of you with us today that we may be given an opportunity to show you that a gTeat proportion of the money paid in Phoe nix to our company, and at other points on the line, tor freight and passenger service, has remained right here. Dur ing normal conditions, or I might say "before the war", our daily pay role in Phoenix and money spent here for sup plies, amounts to over $1000 per day. The plant wh:i we will show you af- j tcr leaving here, represents an invest- j m; nt of over J800.000, including j grounds, buildings, machinery, supplies, etc. "I thank you for your attention, gen tlemen, and if you will follow me, we will continue our talk as we pass through the different departments." While going through the plant, Mr. Scott stopped at every convenient place and explained matters of interest ' The room in the office building where the banquet was held, occupies a floor space of 18x63, and is intended i for an instruction room for employes. When the furnishings are completed, thin room will be equipped with drop curtain for stereopticon views used in connection w:th "Safety First," shoe ing the proper and improper way to j board or alight from cars, making couplings, etc.: and where slides will be shown by the representative of the bureau of explosives of the American Railway association, instructing cm- ployes In the proper handling and j stowing of explosives that arc handled as freight shipments. This room will also be equipped w-ith a complete bat-, tery of air brakes such as arc used on passenger and freight trains, with all of the apparatus used in the cab of the engine and on the cars, so that train and enginemen may be given full in structions with illustrations and lec tures in the proper use of air brake ap pliances. This room when completed, will also be used for the monthly "Safety First" meetings of the division employes, where suggestions for the safety of the public and employes arc made by the employes of all depart ments, discussed and acted upon. Immediately to the right of the front entrance of the office building, is lo cated an emeigency hospital room with an operating table, complete line of in struments, anesthetics, bandages, etc., where in ease of injury to employes about the plant, first aid to the Injured may be given before the patient is re moved to his home or the hospital. The balance of the first floor and the basement is occupied by the store department, where a complete line of stores of all kinds is carried from pins and paper to the largest casting that goes into the construction of locomo tives. The second floor is occupied by the general offices, the arrangement being of the most modern. The general en trance is into an eight cornered room from which lead the offices of the heads of each department, so that in going into the office of any of these departments it is not necessary to pass through and disturb any of the em ployes of another department. On this f'oor are located the office of the su-p-rintendent end his assistants in the different department. The offices of the dispatcher, paymaster, time clerk, civil engineer and drafting department, master mechanic, engineer of mainten ance of way, and filing room. Each floor being p'rovided with a fire proof vault. The entire structure being of monolithic reinforced" concrete, includ ing the roof. The building is pre cooled in the summer, heated with hot air in the winter, each room is equipped with vaccum cleaner system. The roundhouse and shops proper are of reinforced concrete and fire proof roof, the walls being of what is known as the unit construction that Is, each pillar or post and slab that goes to makj up the walls and sills have been molded on the ground in separate blocks and swung into place by locomotive crane. In other words, the building is built like a child's block house, only in place of blocks they use concrete slabs. The shops and round house is divided into two large spaces divided by a fire proof, wall, so that in case of fire in one part of the building the balance of the parts of the building will immediately be Isolated automat ically by fire proof doors. Complete fire department, high pressure pump, hose, etc. Each large machine or group of small machines, is driven by an in dividual electric motor in order that there may lie no waste of power. That Is to say, if one of the employes wish to use the emery wheel, it is not neces sary to run the entire plant with all of the overhead shafting, as in most of the older plants, but would simply turn on the motor to take care of that par ticular group of small machines. The heavy lifting about the shop is all done by compressed air hoists, the hoists having been manufactured in the Phoenix shops. The machinery is of the most modern type and there is a lack of noise and dirt that is found about most large plants. "Safety First" is the ruling order. All of the gears oi parts of machinery that might catch an employes clothing, and thus injure him, are covered with guards. No men are allowed to work about the machin ery with loose coats or overall sleeves; all men, where there are liable to be any flying parts, are required to wear goggles; In fact every precaution is taken to prevent accidents. Nothing goes to waste about the shops; ' every piece of scrap iron of any kind that comes from any of the repaired engines or cars. Instead of being thrown into the scrap heap is taken to a small shop known as the reclaim shop where every nut or washer, or any part that could be reused, is removed, cleaned up, and put back in stock. Broken, bent or battered bolts are rethreaded, reheaded, or straightened out. anil used over and over again; in fact it did not seem "that Shop By Phone We have a private ex change, in charge of a com petent girl who will fill your order, or, if you desire, turn it over to your fa vorite clerk.

In the blacksmith shop we were shown the large machines that cut, punch and roll boiler plate, where a piece of steel plate Vj" thick was cut into ribbons like a pair of shears trimming your nails; where a broken engine frame, say four or five inches in thickness, is welded by what i.s known as the "Ther mit Process" without taking the frame from under the engine. The 80 foot turn table, constructed entirely of steel and concrete, is elec trical driven, that is to say when an engine is turned it is only necessary to run it onto the table and start the mo tor to turn the engine. Company have their own sewer line to the river; their own police and fire department, and water works system, the pumping plant for the latter being located seven miles north of town where pure soft water is obtained for engine and other purposes. The car shops is equipped with the j most modern wood working much in- j ery, as in the machine shop, each ma chine is electrical driven. The large fuel oil storage tank is cajiable of storing six months' supply of fuel. There is a complete garage along side the turn table which is equipped with compressed air. air drills, pits, etc., in charge of a gasoline engine expert, for repairs to and care of gasoline motor cars used on the line. The shops are located in the middle of a 200 acre tract belonging to the company, anJ are reached by a mod ern macadam road from 7th street. Few of the F.otarians who were pres ent, before realized that at their back diMir is a modern plant of such large proportions, representing an investment of over three-quarters of a million dol lars, and thai this plant is distributing in Phoenix alcne, in pay rolls and pur chase of supplies, something over $!00 per day, there are more improvements yet to come costing many thousands of dollars, providing the money may be had for the purpose. The tickets this week were sold by A. C. Taylor of the Arizona State Press, and to Mr. Taylor's hustling ability is due in a great measure the large attendance. The prizes went to-: E. G. Fitzgerald, of the Y. M. C. A., I. H. S. Huggctt of the Arizona Re publican, and Dr. Dennett of the Hassayampa Creamery.
