OF C1FIE HELD IN SI na m FOR DUTY ma In an open letter on lied Cross work in the war to all of the branches of the I'hoenix chapter. Chairman John L. I.oper has given some moFt inter esting facts secured by the secretary of the chapter at a recent conference held in Ban Francisco. The. letter, which Is of Interest to all workers and all patriotic citizens, is as follows: The secretary of the Phoenix Chap ter returned a few days ago from the Red Cross conference in San 1-Yan-ciaco and reports that he is indeed sor ry that the Red Cross could not have Mr. liavis, who has been at the "front" and knows whereof he speaks visit Arizona and every chapter and branch of the Red Cross in this state. We thought we knew pretty well the work that the Red Cross was doing but it requires the actual contact with men who have "seen" and "done," in order to appreciate the enormous labor that is being carried on and tne variety and thoroughness of the work accom plished. Mr. Davis insists there is need for every piece of material that the Red Cross can make in order that the men at the front, our own boys, and the French soldiers may be kept on the front line. Any one who suggests that there are enough dressings made is absolutely statin?; an untruth. The demands are enormous for the dally needs and in many cases the wounded are received in the hospitals in such condition that an entire box of dressings will be re quired for one patient, and there are thousands and thousands of patients. Knitted garments are most certainly needed. Fuel is very scarce in France and where fuel is not to be had the only warmth the soldiers can secure is that which they get from, the knitted comforts, sweaters, and other woolen mm, b IINCJl Hiding of bicycles on the side walks of Phoenix is a practice which must cease at once, according to an ultimatum which has been given out by Chief of Police Brisbois. Chief Brisbois says that arrests will be made wherever the breach of the city ordinance comes to the attention of an officer henceforth, and that the lawbreakers will be prosecuted to the full extent of the fine and imprisonment provided. "Bicycle riding on sidefalks en dangers the life and limb of the pedestrian whose journey through city streets is precarious enough al ready without this additional men ace," says the chief.

Mr. Davidson, who is today the head of the Red Cross stated that he would rather have the co-operation of the women of tbe United States than a fifty million dollar Red Cross fund. The talk of having-made enough ar ticles is most certainly a mistake. We are only Just started. The demands which we have met promptly and will ingly are only a tithe of the demands which we must fill and will fill will ingly and quickly. Any one who sug gests that the material made by Red Cross chapter does not arrive at its proper destination makes a statement which is untrue. We must not forget that the making , of hospital supplies, garments and bandages, while it is a very important work, it is only one of the many activ ities of the Red Cross. The work be ing done in France consists in re habilitating the French nation and that part of France within the battle xone. Helping the French families in their terrible struggle for existence, 4ielping the French soldier carry the biggest burden and bringing back new life to the region which has been entirely de stroyed. There are whole villiages and towns absolutely without a house or hovel left standing. The Red Cross has es tablished in these places depots from which the life is started again where the citizen can go and get the aid which will fit him to better struggle against the fearful odds. It may be a carpenter who will be provided with a few necessary tools to enable him to do a little work toward putting some of the buildings in condition to make a sort of home for a few other inhabitants who are Induced to return and begin again the building of a little home, a mason, a blacksmith or a farmer. Tools are provided in each in stance and again enabling the wound ed to take up some line of activity which before thev knew nothing of. Teaching them trades which will en able them to live and not be a burden on relatives or friends. Providing ar tificial limbs to others that they too may make at lea a living and not be come a charge on the nation, French and American. It would be impossible to mention everv line of effort in taking care of the soldiers in and out of camp. The co-operation with the families of sol diers, the taking care of French chil dren left orphans and homeless. ' These are lust a few of the many lines which the organization has had to take up and is done under the su pervision and direction of the govern ments. French and American. Recently we had in Phoenix a Cana dian officer, one who has lust returned from France and one of a family of seven, all in the war. Four have gone "over the top" never to return. Three are still "cart-vine on" and we are told by this officer that we at home do not begin to appreciate the value of the services rendered by the Red Cross and the Y. M. C. A. through all the camps, trenches, reserve trenches, and frontline trenches right up to the point of battle. We wish that each branch could have meetings at which represent atives who have had the experience and know what they are talking about, could tell you of the splendid work which you are doing and how much the men, who are bearing the burden of the war. aDDrerfate shit vm. dolruj for them.

Major V. E. Sl.Vne, official In charge of the organizing of all medical advis ory boards in Arizona to assist in the selection of men for the next call to the colors, was in Phoenix yesterday. Major Shine, whose home is in Bisbee, has been in Washington conferring with the high officials of the medical department in regard to his duties in this state and came to Phoenix to Te ton for duty to Governor Thomas E. Campbell. Hedaquarters for Major Shine in Phoenix have not yet been selected, but will be in a day or two. Active work will begin at once in organizing the medical examining boards in each county of the state. Much work will be necessary before the boards are ready to pass upon the physical quali fications of the registrants who will present themselves at the next call. Major Shine already has received as surances from the medical fraternity of the state that he will be given ample assistance, the medical men being very willing and anxious to do their bit with all the other patriotic citizens. poligeSTeaves FORCE Ml G Leaving behind him a most enviable record, Edward N. Barnum. Tor several years one of the most competent and best liked members of the Phoenix po lice force, severed his connection with the department yesterday. For some time he has had mining interests in the Miami district and these havei grown to such an extent that he recently de cided that in order to properly attend to them, he must devote his entire time to the work. Accordingly, he tendered his resignation to Chief of Police Bris bois two weeks ago and asked that it be permitted to become effective De cember 1. Few men are better acquainted in the Salt River Valley than Policeman Bar num. He is a native of this city and has made Phoenix his home all his life. This knowledge of local people and conditions especially fitted him for the duties of a police officer. This ability was recognized by Chief of Police A. J. Moore about six years ago and he ap- I pointed him to the force. When the city went under commis sion form of government and George O. Brisbois succeeded to the office of chief of police, he retained Barnum as a member of his force. With the ex ception of a brief interval. Barnum has been continuously in the service of the city ever since. In severing his con nection with the force, Barnum leaves a vacancy that will be hard to fill. Of this fact Chief of Police Brisbois is ful ly aware and did not hesitatt to make this known to Barnum. In once more engaging In mining, Barnum is not entering a field with which he is ufamiliar. For many years In various parts of the state, he was engaged as a practical miner. He leaves for Miami today. There are none in your district who would not willingly give up time, money, and many other things in or der to help bring a little cheer and comfort to the men who have gone from happy homes to fight our battles. There never was freedom without first a fight for it, and there will be no freedom if we at home do not stand solidly behind and do our utmost in every way for those who are at the front fighting for us. mwimwwosBtwrefys.'N .. ..v....... iff pfelfi, Above: A gondola of one of tbe Zep pelin air raiders captured in Eng land (left) and a German observer surrendering to 11 ally flier.

The blackness of a midnight sky demonstrates this fact most readily. We may see the planets brilliantly il luminated by the sun's' rays, but the surrounding syace is dark, although we know that light must be passing there. The passage of a beam of light through a darkened ioom is only vis ible on the dust in the air, and the cone of light seen when the sun shines through a small bole in a shutter is not visible, but only light reflected from the motes in the beam. This can be easily and simply demonstrated by placing in the beam a glass vessel from which the dust has been carefully re moved. The beam then may be seen before and behind the vessel, but is in visible within. A Bunsen burner or a redhot poker held so as to destroy the motes will also render the beam invis ible at that spot. Light is only visible when it strikes on the retina of the eye. and it can only do so when it reaches it in a di rect line or is turned by a reflection or refraction into a direct line. Just as the bullets from a gun do a man no harm unless aimed or turned in their course toward his body, so light is without effect unless it is aimed or turned toward the retina. SMOKE BOXES FAIL U-BOAT'S ATTACK (London Telegraph) It is .stated on high naval authority that the new defensive measures against submarine attacks are meeting with success, and that a further reduc tion in losses may be expected. It can be stated on official authority that the results of the methods adopted during the past month give cause for grow ing confidence. "No sensational inventions are being used, and no sensational results may be expected." a naval officer said. "The sinkings will continue but the subma rine is defeated. If the public knov what we know it would not ha,ve th slightest anxiety, and the criticism . naval methods would stop at once." Good results are being secured from the smoke cloud defense system, and it is stated that dozens of ships have been saved by its adoption. It was offi cially stated at the admiralty that the system has been in use for some months on British ships, and the great majority of British merchantmen have been supplied by the admiralty with smoke boxes. These boxes, with the smoke funnel, are for the production of smoke on board the vessels attacked. The smoke boxes are for throwing .overboard. They produce dense vol umes of smoke, and, skilfully used, completely baffle submarines. The bureau of ordnance of the Fnited States navy department is hav ing huge quantities manufactured, and the navy department, in view of th6 reports of British and American cap tains, states that smoke producing ap paratus should be available for every vessel. A form of smoke box was used in the Battle Jutland.

There is always? 4 considerable interest and much travel over the route from this city to El Paso and the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, automobile division, gives the follow ing advice about this :uim: "The best road from Phoenix to El Paso is by way of Phoenix, Tempc, Mesa, Chandler, Florence, Tucson, Vail, Empire Ranch, lluachuca Siding, Fairbank, Tombstone, Bisbee, Douglas, Rodeo, Hachita, Deming, Mesilla Park, El Paso. "The distance from Phoenix to Douglas is 260 miles, and from Douglas to El Paso, 270 miles, making a total of 530 miles. 400 miles of this road is excellent and 130 miles fair to good. "The Chamber of Commerce believes it is safe in stating there is scarcely a day in the year when this road is not pass able. It most certainly will stand up for winter travel.''
