I -o- CAN'T DECIDE PLACE III CAME Whether Diego and be playrd the game between San Phoenix high schools will here or on the coast on New Year's day Is still a matter of conjecture, no definite arrangements bavins; been .made between the two teams. If th gamo 1s played in Phoenix it will be turned into a great bene fit sffalr and the proceeds will bp spilt between the Red Cross, the. As sociated Charities and the "V" war work fund, exclusive T the amount which must be paid for the expenses of the visiting team. This was de cided upon nt a meeting called night before last by Captain Wilky of the football team. Talks were inade by Coach Gary.and Albert I'inney. Practice will start at once and the team will round Itself into first class condition for the big game witli daily workouts on the local gridiron. The high school boys have been assured of the support of several lor I organizations, besides the stu dent body, and it Is expected that the importance of the game will re sult In the assembling of one of the hicgest crowds In the history of lo cal football. o Do not wait 'till tomorrow phono that WANT AD. to The Republican and dispose of. or get what you want. There are two good reasons why the Coyote basketball team this year is likely to maintain a higher standard than in previous years. In the first place the lads have just completed an entirely successful football season, and flushed with their recent victories they simply have the habit of keeping in trim and will continue to do until the end of the basketball season. The sec ond reason is that most of the football talent Is Versatile enough to be un usually good in the court pastime and is especially anxious to keep the school in high standing in lesser sports after wiping the1 slate clean in the gridiron division. Professor Carpenter of the faculty, has been given the Job of whipping the tram into shape. For three years. Prof. Carpenter has performed this function very satisfactorily and it is expected that his coaching will again manifest itself as a mateial part of the promised success of the team this year. Prior to his acceptance of the position of biol ogy instructor at the high school, Mr. Carpenter was a university basketball star. He is a strong exponent of the game and his enthusiasm Is accredited as the source of his unprecedented suc cess as a coach. Attractive ttew uniforms are to be furnished for the boys this year by the athletic association of the school. The contrast with previous nwirs. when the hoys fared forth attired in ragged out fits, ought to be gratifying to the eye of the basketball fan. Suits will he fur. nlshed by the boys until after the first game when the new suits will be dis tributed after the team has been final ly nicked. The faculty and the high school team will -furnish the first game of the sea son on December 12. Both teams have a comparatively short time to get into condition but vigorous training has al ready been started and the lads will round into very fair shape if their good work is continued until the eve of the battle. The game will be staged at the ar mory. There is always a great deal of interest in the games between the faculty and the students and it is ex pected that the student body w ill turn out in full force to attend. I Am.

Washington advices report the ap pointment of Sims Ely, Jr., to a "field clerkship'' with General Pershing's army in France. Somewhat more than a week ago he received from the war department a telegraphic offer of the appointment. The Valley bank, which on all occasions has shown a patriotic desire to help the government at once granted to the young man a leave of absence, good for the war, from his position as one of its assist ant cashiers, and telegraphing his ac ceptance of the foreign position, he left immediately for Washington, ac companied by Mrs. Sims Ely, Jr. The formal appointment was made Saturday. The young couple will visit with Miss Helen Kly, in New York, until he gets his sailing orders. Mra Ely will return to Phoenix after the holidays. "Field clerkships" are amon the many features of modern war. The making of war has become a vast business undertaking, and in their business establishments connected with the armies the governments involved seek to secure the services of men who are specially trained. When General Pershing had surveyed the field in France and had siza up the work ahead of him. he c.ibleuV to the war de partment a request for 150 young men, of special training, for positions. As rapidly as possible, his request was complied with; but it was soon seen that the 150 men first suggested would fail far short ot the number needed in handling the business end of a great army, and the number was ma terially increased. Phoenix now has three bright young men in the ranks c-f foreign field clerks Leon S. Jacobs. Melville Flckas and Sims Ely, Jr. an unusual honor for a single community: but it happened that Phoenix had the young men of talent, especially qualified, and that was the fact that interested Uncle Sam. Field clerks are given the status of officers, from the start; and it is understood that congress at this ses sion will authorize the war depart ment to commission them as regular officers of the army. 5 iFr II SHOE VALUE IN TOWN at our Mid- Winter Shoe Sale It i gratifying to us the way the people of Phoenix and Salt River Valley turned out on our Mid-Winter Shoe Sale.

Second only in importance only to the president's stirring address to congress yesterday and even more potent as a market stimulant, was the report submitted to that body today by the Interstate com mcrce commission bearing vitally upon the future of the railroads of the country. It is yet too early to forecast even to an approximate degree the effect of the commerce commission's recom mendations, but the course of the stock market following the publication of the report, left no doubt of its im mediate significance. The first intimation of the proposed suspension of the Sherman law re suited in a re-bound in which prices were carried two, and in some cases almost five points above lowest levels. Industrials and the entire war list as well as shippings, coppers and specialties, shared in the advance. United States Steel rallied from its low of 86i to S9"8, with corresponding gains elsewhere. Total sales, 880,000 shares. Bonds were heavy for a' time, but strengthened with stock list. Liberty fours ruled at B7.30 to 97.62 and the 3'i's 98.50 to 98.72. Total sales, par value, amounted to Ja,150,0U0. I nited States Bonds, old issues, were unchanged on call, coupon fours los ing of 1 per cent on sales. "IT PAYS TO PAY CASH" BAYLESS Grocery Co.

GRAIN CHICAGO. Dec. 5. Corn advanced in price today, owing more or less to persistent smallness of receipts despite announcements of a better supply of railway cars. The market closed firm to lc net higher with January $1.21 and May $1.19W. to $1.19. Oats gained 14 to lKc and provis Ions 50c to $1.00. Although a slight tendency to sag was noticeable at the outset in the com market, prospects of new price fixing legislation appeared to have lost force as an element of depression. Unfulfill ment of hopes that arrivals would ma terially increase led to a hardening of values and there was a further display of bullish sentiment after a rise in the oats market to fresh higher price rec ords for the season. The scarcity of corn available for immediate delivery was emphasized by an advance of fivt cents to ten cents being quoted for new crop supplies. Bulges In the price of oats resulted chiefly from the fact that stocks here were meager and receipts disap pointing. Buying attributed to packers hoisted provisions to the maximum of the day's limit.

Allyn Lewis -Tl The recommendation by the Inter state Commerce Commission that the government take over the railroads. was the greatest surprise the Street has had in years. l'?;H it is thor oughly understood jtist what this means, no one can form an intelli gent opinion. In England the railroads were taken over and their previous dividends were guaranteed. Here such an act might prove very costly. If the government should guarantee the dividends of roads because they used to ' earn them, there would be thej same reason for guaranteeing the! dividends to roads which did not formerly earn them but which earn them today. While uncertainty exists such as we have now, we are going to have a very feverish market. The rail list has been oversold, not very heavily, for the amount of stocks car ried in the street is small, the after noon rise showed this. It was the stocks with the short interest which advanced, the ones without It had small recoveries. The market is showing a backbone which is very encouraging. A remarkable change in sentiment swept over tlie market in the last hour when, the Went of the Inter state Commrce Commission was bet ter understood. The thought in Wall Street was that' liquidation of rail road securities woula be. stopped un der the neVr order. Kennecott Kennecott Copper di rectors at the meeting today reduced the dividend' from $6 to $4 annual basis. The Jtree,t has expected such action, as it has long expected simi lar reduction in the dividends on the other porphyry copper shares. The only question was whether the great decline of the last few tfionths had or had not discounted such action. This question was answered In the affirmative judging by the way cop per shares moved today. Kennecott went down very little and although a lowerir; of the rate on Vtah on their dividend is. looked for, this stock did better than it did yesterday. So, too, with the other coppers there was very little pressure. COTTON NEW YORK, Dec. 0. The cotton market today closed steady at a net gain' of five to fourteen points. New York, Dec. 0.
